Saudi King Abdullah `The UK Isn't Doing Enough To Fight Terrorism.'

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah takes the prize for unmitigated gall this week. Speaking to the BBC in an interview, King Abdullah accused Britain of not doing enough to fight international terrorism, which he says could take 20 or 30 years to beat.

(Of course, that time period could be cut significantly if the Saudis stopped funding it, as well as the wahabi ideology that promotes it. Just a thought.)

Speaking through an interpreter, the Saudi monarch said he believed most countries were not taking the issue seriously, "including, unfortunately, Great Britain".

"We have sent information to Great Britain before the terrorist attacks in Britain but unfortunately no action was taken. And it may have been able to maybe avert the tragedy."

Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC)investigated and then out and out denied that they hgad received any information from the Kingdom.

King Abdullah is due in the UK today for a state visit, the first by a Saudi monarch in twenty years.

One amusing thing that apparently came out during the interview - King Abdullah is peeved that his suggestion for a UN `clearing house' to share intelligence on terrorism hasn't met with a lot of support yet, except among the Muslim bloc.

The funny part is that he would wonder why!

Yes, they found out their fellow Saudis were raising funds to finance the London bombings, and tipped off the British a year before the attack:,,1702660,00.html

Therefore, it really is all Great Britain's fault, don't you see?

Never mind the fact that the Saudis have also been implicated in every other major terrorist attack in the past two decades:

You all need to read the book "paramedic to the Prine" it was written by an American Paramedic that was on the medical team of King Abdullah. Really gives the best insight into Saudi Arabia that I have ever read. Saudi is the main fundraiser for terrorist groups and 25% of foriegn fighters in Iraq are Saudi's. 15 of 19 hi-jackers in 9/11 were Saudi's. Tell me again why did we invade Iraq and not Saudi? Anyway this book is on Amazon and a great read. I just hope they don't put out a Fatwa on this guy.
