The United States is too lenient with the Saudis

Reader comment on item: [Freedom House report on] Saudi Venom in U.S. Mosques

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Feb 3, 2005 at 08:23

This time, you cannot blame Europeans for appeasement. It is the United States which is enjoying a special relationship with Saudi Islamo-Fascists for the sake of petrol.

Euopean politically correct countries are not as intertwined with the Saudis as the American government is. Seventeen out of nineteen of the 9/11 murderers were Saudis and, yet, the US government is still close to the Saudi Royal Family.

This time it is not human rights activists which stop the US from acting. It is not PC allegations of Islamophobia and racism. It is the petrol.

For the sake of Saudi petrol, the US governement is willing to entertain close relationships with Saudi murderers and criminals.

From 9/11 to Beslan, all big terrorist operations were sponsored by Saudi charities which go by names such as Islamic Relief (and similar names).

The United States is not doing enough to stop the murderers. The American people should be more important than Saudi petrol. Remember that most of the world's terrorism comes from Saudi money. The Saudis make friends with the Americans and then stab them in the back. Don't blame Europe this time around
