Here are two related items about the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the financing of terrorism, both in the last 48 hours. Quelle coïncidence!
First, the US Senate has passed a bill allowing family members of 9/11 victims to sue the Saudis.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate passed legislation on Tuesday that would allow survivors and relatives of those killed in the Sept. 11 attacks to file lawsuits seeking damages against the government of Saudi Arabia.
If the president signs off on this, it means that US lawyers can try to prove that the government of Saudi Arabia was an active participant in the 9/11 attacks -- something that seemed obvious to many ever since the week of September 11, 2001.
Yesterday, PBS aired a very interesting 10-minute segment about Saudi funded mosques in Bosnia and the threat they represent to the West.
However, this video includes the usual attempts to link criticism of the ideology of Islam with racism, and repeats the notion that "Islam has been high jacked."
But what is new is that the Saudis are directly blamed for supporting this "radical extremist" version of Islam.
Of course, many people contend that authentic Islamic scripture, history and practices are the problem, and the peaceful variants, if they exist, are the aberrations.
As previously reported at The Rebel, Robert Spencer explains the Islamic motivation behind the mass migration to the West.
Here is a video with some of the world's top experts on Islam discussing the Islamic State and its relationship with core Islamic doctrine:
And not surprisingly, comments at YouTube are disabled, as they so often are whenever the mainstream media reports on Islam.
Comments are open on this post, however.
