in response to reader comment: Have we forgotten the Right Wing's alliance with Islamists ?

Extreme right wing (or neocons) alliance with Islamists has been in existence since the discovery of oil in middle-east. It took a twisted form during Russian-Afghan conflict, but is still very much alive and well. The most visible example of this is the strong bonds with the Wahabi Saudi ruling clique.

These include close business links, that seek to exploit Saudi resources to benefit this clique and keep the Saudi masses improvised. There are numerous 'military advisors' on the payroll of Saudi ruling family simply to suppress the people. In addition there is the apartheid regime in Saudi Aramco that has American personnel getting disproportionate salaries.
