Jittery Saudi royals

Jittery Saudi royals

from The Angry Arab News Service/وكالة أنباء العربي الغاضب by noreply@blogger.com (As’ad AbuKhalil)
“The Saudi government, however, is jittery. In the last few days, it has marshaled clerics, media, the foreign minister and the Interior Ministry to assert that public protest is banned in the kingdom, against Islam and will lead to chaos, claims that rights activists deny.  Interior Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Mansour Turki insisted that the protest movement was not homegrown but orchestrated by a foreign “hidden hand” determined to destroy the Saudi state. His belief is shared by other Saudis critical of the marches, and it echoes pro-regime forces in troubled states throughout the region.”
