“Saudis Are Valued Allies”


If my reader would like….they can file this under…….FYI

The above quote has been uttered by the likes of Obama, Kerry and a whole host of White House big shots….even McCain finds them as such…….

I realize that many Americans want to hate Muslims for the actions of ISIS and AQ.….and that is a shame for they are hating the wrong group……but that bit of information does not stop the fear mongers and the haters……maybe I can help in some small way…..

The big hoop-tee-doo is ISIS.….we Americans are determined to defeat these beasts sent from the pits of Hell…..I know a little melodramatic….but hey everyone else is doing it….thought I would give it a try…..(pause)…..nope .did NOTHING to explain anything…..

When the US put together its Coalition it was with the hopes that Saudi Arabia would be front and center as the pal we pretend they are……

We have heard all the horror stories of the acts that ISIS is capable of doing….like the oppression of women, oppression of minorities, beheadings, religious police, etc, etc, etc…….yes they are religious extremist…….they follow a religious belief known as wahhabi Islamic ideology….The attraction is that Wahhabism and its larger Salafi tradition are in a way surprisingly modern. They offer young urbanites clear boundaries, classifications and, most important, a blueprint for changing the self and the world through action. One cannot get more modern than that. Wahhabi insistence on fixing meaning and resorting to authentic texts offers an antidote to diluted values, hybridity and all the postmodern pastiches characteristic of contemporary life. The majority of Salafi Muslims seek comfort in personal struggles, a form of jihad, to live up to Wahhabi prescriptions amid the prohibited temptations of today’s world. It is only a small minority that is attracted to the branch of Wahhabism that advocates violent struggle, also a kind of jihad, to create a new Muslim first and then a state in which to live according to the strictest interpretations of Islam. Herein lies the appeal of IS and nostalgia for the caliphate and application of Sharia.

The Saudis are just as guilty of atrocities as ISIS….the religious police, beheadings, public floggings, oppression of women….on and on……Acts of violence need justifying in the form of discourses that grant them legitimacy, and Wahhabism appears to be one of those discourses. It is potent because a sacred umbrella of religious texts and interpretations provoke emotional dispositions and provide authenticity and legitimacy beyond any secular source. In the context of the Arab world today, dying for faith seems more popular than dying for country and nation.

The Wahhabi tradition is NO different from the ideology of ISIS.….plus it is a fairly modern invention that has been around since the 1700’s…..while Islam has been around since the 600’s CE.  Now ask if ISIS and the Saudis are so similar.then why do we kiss the ass of the Saudi monarchy?  Or just how much do they contribute to those that share their religious beliefs?

 Then why is Saudi a partner in this coalition?  My thought is that ISIS is trying usurp their control and the monarchy will do whatever it takes to retain their “sacred” control over Islam.
