Daniel, you're right again!

Reader comment on item: [Saudi Arabia:] Not Friend or Foe

Submitted by Steven Hoop (United States), May 15, 2002 at 13:05

While the majority of Americans, including conservatives, have their head in the sand, Daniel Pipes understands the real situation we find ourselves in today--Judeo/Christianity versus Fundametalist Islam. Do your homework on what Fundamentalist Islam represents and its goals and objectives. Can you imagine the dilemma the Saudi royal family is in? They have no choice but to be ambivalent to America. Wahhabism has taken over their country. Admitting any alignment with America could easily trigger another Iranian-like revolution. On the other hand, the extremists need the royal family's oil money to continue their terror globally. The royal family has provided the infrastructure to deliver the goods.
