Saudi Arabia and the West side by side against #ISIS

When it comes to ISIS, Saudi Arabia and the West are side by side.

When it comes to ISIS, Saudi Arabia and the West are side by side.

From what I can tell it goes like this:┬áThe majority of terrorists in the 9/11 attacks were Saudi Arabian, Osama Bin Laden of course was from a wealthy Saudi family with ties to the ruling Royalty and it is alleged that there was some assistance from some elements within the Saudi government in 9/11 – see 28pages.org for more on this.

Because of this terrorist attack, Iraq was invaded, leading to the formation of ISIS. Saudi individuals have been responsible for funding ISIS.┬áBut Saudi Arabia is officially allied with ‘The West’ against them, in spite of spending billions and billions in promoting its hard line Wahhabist interpretation of Islam which is said to be integral in the spread of extremism.

Everything clear? Good.

This analysis of the punishments meted out by ISIS and Saudi Arabia for ‘crimes’ such as blasphemy and homosexuality is telling.

In the middle of nowhere currently and have little technology to hand, but I’ve cobbled together this sketch as a reaction to the murder of cartoonists in Paris. Murders in retaliation for perceived offence against a character the murderers believe to be a prophet.

My thoughts with the murdered. May they rest in peace. May their light not be extinguished by intimidation.
