Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah died early on Friday and his brother Salman became king, the royal court in the world’s top oil exporter and birthplace of Islam said in a statement carried by state television.
King Salman has named his half-brother Muqrin as his crown prince and heir.
……Abdullah, thought to have been born in 1923, had ruled Saudi Arabia as king since 2006, but had run the country as de facto regent for a decade before that after his predecessor King Fahd suffered a debilitating stroke.
At stake with the appointment of Salman as king is the future direction of the United States’ most important Arab ally and self-appointed champion of Sunni Islam at a moment of unprecedented turmoil across the Middle East.
Arab ally, my ass. The Saudi government not only finances the Islamic war against the West, but it provides ideological indoctrination of the terrorists that carry it out.
Saudi Arabia is a backwards, Islamofascist, terrorist breeding, oppressive, misogynist theocracy.
Its major export is jihad.
Every Islamic nation-state fosters terrorism against Western civilization. There are no ‘Arab allies’.
I bet the Dhimmi-in-Chief sends a high-ranking member of his cabinet to this turd’s funeral. Hell, he might even go himself.
UPDATE: I must be psychic: Obama cancels India trip to fly to Saudi Arabia following king’s death.
