Saudi King Supports Mubarak!!!
If there has ever been a WTF moment in Saudi politics this is it.
Saudi Arabia’s state news agency reported that King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al-Saud criticized the protestors (claiming they are instigated by "infiltrators") and strongly backed Mubarak.
The king said protesters were "exploited to spew out their hatred in destruction . . . inciting a malicious sedition” and that outside agitators “infiltrated into the brotherly people of Egypt, to destabilize its security."
"No Arab or Muslim can tolerate any meddling in the security and stability of Arab and Muslim Egypt by those who infiltrated the people in the name of freedom of expression, exploiting it to inject their destructive hatred," King Abdullah was quoted as saying.
"As they condemn this, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its people and government declares it stands with all its resources with the government of Egypt and its people," the Saudi agency added.
In addition, the king reportedly phoned Mubarak early Saturday and "reassured” him about the situation in Egypt.
Who is advising this guy? Is he trying to piss his population off? Doesn't he know that many Saudis are already outraged by his permission to Ben Ali, the deposed Tunisian dictator, to live in Saudi Arabia? Doesn't he know that practically every single person in the "Arab Street" is virulently anti Mubarak?
