“When Saudi police arrested 88 suspected Al-Qaeda operatives in September, they discovered that 59 of them had been through reform programs and were then released.” And yet the British are staking their nation’s future on a similar program, which will only ensure that Britain’s future will feature blood in the streets.

While Saudi Arabia remains a close ally of the United States, the Kingdom still “is a fertile recruiting ground for Al-Qaeda and ISIS,” Holly Williams of CBS said.
Williams recently investigated Saudi Arabia’s terrorist rehab program, located in Jeddah.
Saudi Arabia spared no expense on former terrorists, pointing out the reform center’s “recreation facilities, comfortable living quarters, and special apartments for conjugal visits.”
The center “looks more like a hotel than a prison,” Williams said.
The three-month program includes various amenities such as healthcare, food, laundry, and education.
“All free, all free,” one rehab worker said.
Saudi officials have boasted of a rehabilitation rate of over 80 percent. They attribute their “success” to financial incentives and by providing jobs for those who pass through the rehab center.
“Saudi Arabian officials admit rehabilitation doesn’t always work,” Williams said. “But they’ve had some spectacular failures. When Saudi police arrested 88 suspected Al-Qaeda operatives in September, they discovered that 59 of them had been through reform programs and were then released.”
