This sounds great until one remembers that they have long been financing that “deviant ideology” outside the Kingdom. “Saudi Arabia arrests 700 preparing ‘oil attacks,'” from AFP, June 26 (thanks to all who sent this in):
OPEC kingpin Saudi Arabia has arrested 701 Islamists in recent months who were preparing attacks on oil industry installations, the interior ministry said on Wednesday.
Security forces “carried out several operations against followers of the deviant ideology and arrested a total of 701 people of various nationalities”, said a ministry spokesman quoted by the official Spa news agency.
Of those arrested, “520 are still being held for their implication in the organisational and ideological plans of the deviant ideology”.
Deviant ideology is the term used by Saudi officials to describe Al-Qaeda.
