Saudi Arabia Delenda Est
Investor's Business Daily editorializes on the question, "Saudi Arabia: Friend or Foe?" Well, folks, this is a no-brainer: Foe.
When Undersecretary Stuart Levey, the US Treasury's top anti-terror official, was asked how many people named by the US or the United Nations as a financier of terror have been prosecuted by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Levey replied, "There have not been any."
And it's not like the Saudis don't know who the financiers are. For example, Yasin al-Qadi is a wealthy Saudi businessman who the U.S. and U.N. both blacklisted as a money man for Al Qaeda merely a month after the Sep 11 attacks. He happily roams about his Saudi sanctuary unmolested.
The same goes for a Saudi who was running the Portland, Oregon branch of the Al-Haramain Foundation, a Muslim charity which, surprise, surprise, was an Al Qaeda front. He was passing bucks on to Al Qaeda jihadis in Chechnya. He scampered back to Saudi Arabia, one step ahead of the law, where he was given a job working for the city of Riyadh.
OK, it's quiz time, ladies and gentleman. Here's the question:
What happenned to the 53 Saudi terrorist scumbags we have released to Saudi Arabia from Gitmo?:
A) The Saudis immediately executed them upon arrival for terrorism.
B) The Saudis sentenced them to long terms of prison for promulgating their religion by violence.
C) The Saudis paroled them on condition they cooperate with the police in telling everything they knew about the terror cells.
D) They went scot free the moment they landed back in Saudi Arabia. Yippee!
Well, if you guessed D, you may already be a winner. Of course, they went free. Terrorists are heroes in Saudi Arabia. There's nothing finer for Wahhabis than slaughtering infidels in the dar al harb. And really, Saudi Arabia was one of the main sources of the $500,000 that funded the Sep 11 attacks. The Saudis aren't going to cough up the princes who bought the box-cutters for the suicide skyjackers of September 11.
Needless to say, we should not grant sanctuary in Saudi Arabia to the Saudi scum who write the checks for Osama Bin Laden to annihilate American families flying to Disneyland. We should deliver their terror back to them with interest. What's the point of having a CIA if we can't use it to assassinate Saudi terror moneymen? Nor should we allow the Wahhabis to remain unmolested in their homes as they seek to kill us in our homes.
We will never be safe so long as Saudi Arabia exists, with the contemptible Saudi princes feeding petrodollars to the Wahhabi madmen to do their worst. The Saudis have spent more than $70 billion to spread their death cult around the world from 1975 to 2002, almost three billion per year. By comparison, the Soviet Union at its peak in the 1970s only spent a billion per year on propaganda to spread their point of view. Some of those Saudi billions went to support the propagation of terror cells. Where ever Wahhabis plant a mosque, terrorists follow in the night.
It's time we took their jihad back to them. They should stop feeling safe in Saudi Arabia. America should not allow Saudi Arabia to be an untouchable haven for terrorists bent on murdering Americans.
