Subject: Uhh...

Source URL: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5218227/ Title of URL: "Saudi prince: Zionism to blame for terror attack" Quoted from URL: "...Last month, an attack on contractors at the Saudi oil facility in Yanbu killed six Westerners, two of them Americans. Senior Saudi officials told the world al-Qaida terrorists were to blame and al-Qaida claimed responsibility. But tape obtained by NBC News reveals that, inside Saudi Arabia, on Saudi television, Crown Prince Abdullah told a strikingly different story about who was to blame. NBC News translated Abdullah's remarks from Arabic: 'Zionism is behind it. It has become clear now. It has become clear to us. I don’t say, I mean... It is not 100 percent, but 95 percent that the Zionist hands are behind what happened.' Other senior Saudi officials reaffirmed the claim that supporters of Israel — Zionists — were behind the terror attacks. Prince Nayef, the Saudi Interior Minister said, 'Al-Qaida is backed by Israel and Zionism.'" The last quote is worthy of a soundbite of the irony, oddity and zaniness of this brave new world.

Note: The post isn't just about Saudis blaming the Israelis, it's the fact that their denial has gone so far as to put Al Qaeda and Israel/"Zionism" in the same boat.

The House of Saud is typical of "the Arab way" when it comes to putting out information: tell the West something near the truth in order to make themselves appear more 'reasonable', but tell their own people the big lie (which usually involves Jews/Israel apearing as the bad guys). The Palestinians do the very same thing. NewGuy

That is nothing. Fasten your seats. I have once met a person who believed that Hitler was a zionist.

Hey, I thought I introduced this link on the sadly undersued 'Saudi Arabia' category. By the way, the Mayor of London Ken Livingstone, a liberal who believes in diversity celebration like sponsoring gay marriage, has invited the Jew hating, gay trashing Dr Yusuf al-Qardawi to speak to various communities here. Anyway I don't know squat about Livingstone, except that I'm against his hard-left attitude towards Pres. Bush. As for Qardawi, a leading chief of the Muslim Brotherhood, his writings have been featured in Islamikaze: Manifestations of Islamic Martyrlogy by Rapheal Israeli. Yup, he endorses Pali suicide bombing as a means of 'resisting oppression' and probably supports domestic abuse against females...

The link I gave on 'Zionist and Yanbu/Khobar', it was from a MEMRI link, not MSNBC. But it was prolly the same event.

I am patiently waiting for Osama to issue a tape denying any involvement with the Mossad. The idea that other Arabs are calling him part of the Zionist conspiracy to run the world just might be enough to make Osama's brain explode. I know mine hurts.
