Counter-Terrorism: Belgium Admits It Was Screwed By The Saudis

Saudi OilOne of the casualties of the recent ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) attacks in France and Belgium was the reputation of Saudi Arabia as an ally in the fight against ISIL. The media were all over the state of Islam in Belgium and many little-publicized facts were made very public. Chief among them was the role of Saudi Arabia played in building (at Saudi expense) mosques and religious schools in Belgium and then staffing them. These facilities were controlled by very-conservative (and anti-Western) clerics and religious teachers who were often trained in Saudi Arabia. This should not be surprising as since the 1980s Saudi Arabia has spent over $100 billion doing this promotion of the very conservative Wahhabi form of Sunni Islam that has predominated in Saudi Arabia since the 18th century.

    Saudi Arabia best promotes Wahhabism by corrupting Western politicians and educrats into taking their money.

    Anyone who thinks the saudis are our allies is an idiot. We used to pretend they were because we needed their oil. We don’t anymore and it would be in our best interests to turn them back into a desert waist land.

      At current prices, we should buy all the Saudi oil we can, bury it in underground caverns and save our own oil for as long as possible.

    Yeah, the Saudis do that every time and you don’t even get kissed first.

    • Maurixio Garciasanchez

      You are right at the same time the Saudis contributed to the world trade center attack .
