Why keep a dog and bark,yourself ?

Reader comment on item: The Saudi Solution

Submitted by Erica Ling (United Kingdom), May 22, 2016 at 05:14

But, surely this is one of the reasons the Gulf States, especially Saudi, pour so much money into the infidel world ? Just as the EU tries to bribe Erdogan to keep the refugees from entering Europe,so do the rich Arabs bribe us, but more successfully. Even the British royal family must anticipate the rubies and diamond jewelry showered on them at every visit.

Our Universities absorb millions,Harvard and Georgetown were given $20 million each on ONE occasion to" create understanding". Smaller sums are commonplace. Arab money makes the world go round.What leverage do we have, to make them take care of their own? Refuse to be bought?
