The Sauds are the problem

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?
in response to reader comment: Saudi money is remaking world Islam in its murderous Wahabi image

Charles, I don't think the Saudi's have lost control to the Wahhabi's, just the Wahhabi's are implementing the pact with the Sauds back in, I think, the 1800s. It has always been - religious control to the Wahhabi's and political control to the Sauds. I believe, instead, it was the Wahhabi's "It's Time" campaign. The Saudis are not to be trusted, and we have been let down by our political leaders in their failure to not become aware of what the words and behaviour of cultures such as the Arab Islamic culture, actually mean; instead they have been looking out with their rose-coloured Western glasses.

Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be about to change, they are unable to fathom the irrational thinking of the Arab culture is very happy thank you and has no need for Western reason. Western reason has the advantage, we can look back at history and learn, not deny. Now, to look back at the history of the Arab imperialists and learn.

Enough with please, more grow up or face the consequences and mean it. How many more innocents must die or suffer human rights abuses while our leaders keep saying please be nice to us. First place to fix, the Useless Nations - stop funding it.
