Reader comment on item: Is Saudi Arabia Opening Up?

Submitted by Sir Daniel M.J. Tobin (United States), Jan 4, 2011 at 11:35

I visited Al Masjid in Westbury,LI,NY recently, and found many who agreed with me that Saudi Arabia is not changing for the better, and should. There were many who decried the U.S. Foreign Policy over the years of lending military support to Israel and for the support of the Mossadegh regime in Iran, but the Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, and Egyptians I spoke with, agreed that The United Nations is the best place to promote sanctions against the kaffir within the Arab League, and to promote peace and liberalisation in mostly Moslem lands.

The Sahwa movement could be used to reform Libya and redress their grievances, since the unpunished Arab War Criminal "colonel" Muammar Gaddaffi (Abu Minyar) who is culpable for Blaspheming Allah with Jihad, and disgracing the Ummah since 1969 B.C. E. , the Genocide of The Libyan National Population, ordering the hijacking of a UTA plane and the massacre of Pan Am Flight#103, 1988, and requesting my abduction (according to former classmate of Catholic Univ. of America Federal Agent James Johnson of Lincroft, NJ, who accosted me in West Hempstead Public Library 1998).

Wahhabism is mentioned in this article as "inspiring global ambitions" , but Torah Law, The Talmud, The Christian Gospels, and The United States Constitution have also inspired global ambitions, and global ambitions are not necessarily bad at all. I am pleased to re-read that the Saudi Crown Prince eased gender apartheid, but am not yet pleased to read that he listens to and enjoys my folk-pop, and folk-blues, and rock tunes I have performed for thousands in Du Four Physical Fitness Center, 1987-1991, Wash. D.C., bars , coffeehouses, libraries and bookstores and churches in my 41 years so far, and how I would be honored and privileged to be the First American Patriot to perform for tens of thousands of respectful, responsible, pro-West, pro- American, Pro-Tolerance, Peace and Co-Existence concert attendants who may dance with all of their clothes on, modestly, in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, on Greenwich Mean Time ideally, but on Mecca Mean Time if need be.

Mecca and Medina may be considered Holy Cities, but so should Garden City,LI, NY, where my brother made his first communion with Michael Edwards (before they were murdered by War Criminals of Libya, Lockerbie, Scotland,1988, A.D. where Pan Am Flight#103 came down, and in The September 11,2001 Massacre by Al Qaeda operatives of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and possibly Pakistan or Afghanistan).respectively. Americans are also fed up with religious leaders interference in our lives, thus the political phrase,"out of the boardroom, out of the bedroom" has helped elect or at least nominate many in the United States, call it a democracy or republic if you'd like. We have over 300 million here in The United States, and since we purchase the expensive Saudi Oil and keep Princes in their comfort, why not support the execution of Foreign War Criminals "colonel" Muammar Gaddaffi, Terrorist Agents Abdel Bassett Ali Megrahi and Lamen Kalifah Fimah, and celebrate by letting me perform in Saudi Arabia, my own American rock-folk, and pop -stylings, and publicize that former CIA Director Bill Casey attended the Holy Sacrifice of The Catholic Mass in an underground facility in Saudi Arabia after he was appointed by former President Ronald Wilson Reagan acording to famous U.S. Naval Intelligence Agent, journalist and book author, Bob Woodward 's "Veil". Thanks for your time and cooperation, and I appreciate your future responses.
