Deposed Saudi princes ‘sleeping on floor’, as Trump says purge targets were ‘milking’ the country

Pictures have emerged reportedly showing deposed Saudi Arabian princes and ministers sleeping on the floor of the Ritz-Carlton hotel following their arrest in one of the kingdom’s biggest ever purges.

Some 11 of the Desssert Kingdom’s princes were detained over the weekend, along with 38 senior officials.

They can be seen bedding down on thin mattresses in one of the function rooms at the 5-star hotel in Riyadh.

        Perhaps not, maybe they’ll dispose of them like they do others …take them out into the desert with no water or protection and let the sand, wind and heat do them in.

          They might just execute a few by firing squad as its more efficient and cheaper these days.

    Let’s hope it’s a real reform.

      According to Caroline Glick at the Jerusalem Post, the crown prince has also arrested more than 30 Wahhabi imams. We can only wait and see. If Christians and Jews are allowed in and given freedom to build their own houses of worship, then I will say yes, the reforms are genuine.

      I doubt it, the victims likely ripped off the wrong people, or were a threat to the throne.

        The unending war against family, punctuated only by alliances with the family to fight non-muslims, so that internecine warfare can begin again. A nomadic Bedouin habit petrified and permanently made a feature of islam.

      I don’t know if these arrests mean anything at all or if it’s just for show that the new leader MbSalman means business on reforms. The laws and courts in these sharia law countries are very fluid and one only has to be accused of some crime, no evidence required for being guilty or rarely not guilty and outside international or western style human rights or laws carry no weight. Then again, in a couple of weeks everything could be reversed at the whim of the King. It is the same in lower levels of gov’t also. Eg, One month it is legal for stores to sell red roses and the next it is stopped because Valentines Day and the color red is haram.
      Wish we had a sharia law zone for Parliament Hill politicians.
