"My Lord, grant me success in struggling during failure, in having patience in disappointment, in going alone, in Jihad without weapons, in working without pay, in making sacrifice in silence, in having religious belief in the world, in having ideology without popular traditions, in having faith without pretensions, non-conformity without immaturity, beauty without physical appearance, loneliness in the crowd, and loving without the beloved knowing about it. My Lord, You teach me how to live; I shall learn how to die."

Saudi Arabia denies report king said Iran, Israel should not exist



Saudi Arabia on Friday denied a statement attributed to the Saudi monarch, King Abdullah, saying that "two states in the region do not deserve to exist: Israel and Iran." Quoted by Saudi Press Agency, an official source denied the report by the French newspaper "Le Figaro" on June 30. The official source told the agency "that this is untrue altogether," and expressed surprise for the publication of such misinformation without verifying the details.


The source pointed out that "the positions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are clear and declared." The French paper conveyed that the king made these remarks when he met with French Defence Minister Herve Morin in Riyadh on the 5th of June. The journalist who wrote the story, George Malbrunot, has a good reputation and is considered a specialist on the Middle East - at one point even being held hostage by the 'Army of Islam "in Iraq for 4 months.  Military and diplomatic sources confirmed the news, according to Le Figaro.

According to Malbrunot, this statement by the king came days after Israel's attack on a Turjkish aid ship bound to Gaza.

On a slight side note from the first article, in 1980 when it was stated that Saudi royals gave Bush Jr. Money for his failing oil business, he father Bush Sr. was not President. He was elected Vice President and didnt take office til 1981. Also, Bush didnt own the Harken company, he sat on the board of directors after Harken bought Bush's company in 1986 not 1980 as the article states. I dont dispute the ties between the Bush and Saud family just I am just being nit-picky about some of their facts...
