Saudi Arabia's patience is running out

RE: Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States,

1."Unless the new US administration takes forceful steps to prevent any further suffering and slaughter of Palestinians, the peace process, the US-Saudi relationship and the stability of the region are at risk."

2. Eventually, the kingdom will not be able to prevent its citizens from joining the worldwide revolt against Israel."

He went as far to say Saudi Arabia could join Iran in a war against Israel.

Clearly Saudi Arabia has been playing the USA like a violin, using US's oil addiction for a running economy to force America's polices in favor of Arab and Saudi Arabia's interests. In addition Saudi Arabia playing America and Iran against one another.

Washington Officials should wake up, and realize the only agenda Saudi Arabia has is an Islamic one.

An examination of Saudi Arabia's "modern and liberal" education was published in Spring, 2006 by Freedom House, entitled Saudi Arabia's C . This report analyzed textbooks in Saudi schools which maintained that "Jews and the Christians are enemies of the believer" and that the "clash between the two realms is perpetual". Students were told not to greet, befriend, imitate or respect unbelievers. Spreading Islam through jihad was said to be a "religious duty". These textbooks are employed in the education of 5 million children in 25,000 schools in Saudi Arabia, and at hundreds of schools abroad.

Saudi Arabia is listed by the US Commission on International Religious Freedom as one of the "countries of particular concern", for its violations. Under the terms of the 1998 International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA), Saudi Arabia is placed on a watch list by the US State Department. In September 2005

Saudi Arabia is placing the responsibility of the failure of Israeli – Arab Palestinian conflict on the US and Israel, while embracing the genocidal wars against Israel by Arab Palestinians, Hezbollah, Iran, Syria and many others.

America's addiction to black gold of oil will lead to US's demise and death.
