And JSF takes notes:
The recent surprise speech by Saudi King only reveals the deep divisions in the Saudi royal family. A large number of the princes (even in so-called "liberal" factions, like the sons of Prince Talal) are religious fanatic who look at the US and the West from the Wahhabi perspective of Ibn Baz. In fact, I am noting a certain irony. You look at American Zionist websites, and now they carry translations of Saudi columnists in the mouthpiece of Prince Salman. Yet, they are unaware
that those same Saudi propaganda outlets continue to vomit anti-Semitic trash. The other day, I heard a preacher engaging in "prayer" in a Saudi-owned network: it was the classic anti-Semitic stuff. But that should not be surprising at all. Israel and Zionists never EVER had a problem in making alliances with anti-Semitics provided those anti-Semities do what Israel tell them. Anwar Sadat is the best example: this is an unrepentant anti-Semitic Nazi who became a key ally for Zionists (and for Jimmy Carter, who has yet another boring and ill-informed book out). King Abdullah, Prince Muqrin, and Prince Saud lead one Saudi faction, and Prince Bandar seems to be leading the Sudayri faction now. (Angry Arab )
will there be a War of the Roses, and if so, what will it be called?
