Perhaps we will see a younger man, a prince of the next generation rather than another geriatric son of Ibn Saud.
Press TV is the Pravda of the Iranian regime.
About the succession:
“King Abdullah’s heir-apparent was his half brother Crown Prince Sultan until the latter’s death on 22 October 2011.
The title of Crown Prince then passed to Prince Sultan’s full brother, Prince Nayef until his death in Geneva, Switzerland, on 16 June 2012, while undergoing medical tests for an undisclosed ailment.
His third heir-apparent is Prince Salman who was named as Crown Prince on 18 June 2012. ”
Could be prince Salman gets the job....
I hope this doesn’t get messy. If we’re lucky, nobody will tell Obumbler until all the wrinkles are ironed out, and it’s too late for him to interfere.
Does this mean that Obozo will now want to be king there too? /s
If there are some 7,000 princes and some 25,000 princesses and they all transit the globe, why aren’t they internationally targeted as human traffickers?
I’ll get beat up but as far as Islam goes
One could do worse
Some of these Saudi monarchs fear the nuts same as we do
And aside from their public rhetoric they will take a strong Israel over a strong Hezbollah or Hamas
Or Taliban....any day
And AL Qaeda which exists to install a new Caliphate sans House of Saud as much as anything else
Not to mention the investments umbical to the west
So now he’s qualified to be either a muslim theologian or an Obama economic advisor.
I knoiw JUST the guy ... we'll let you have 'im for free .... just TAKE the mf'er.
Obama will figure out a way to get the Muslim Brotherhood in charge.
Sounds like deja vu all over again...
In August 2010, Prince Salman underwent spine surgery in the United States and remained out of the kingdom for recovery. He had one stroke and despite physiotherapy, his left arm does not work as well as his right. After his appointment as Crown Prince various analysts including Simon Henderson argue that he is suffering from dementia.
When your heart stops functioning, you're not "clinically" dead, you're DEAD.
I don’t know how much stock I would put in this report from Iranian-controlled press. The only other news outlets that are reporting this all come from the same source. It is likely absolutely pure propaganda straight from the mullahs in Iran. As such, I question why it is in “Breaking News”.
Also of note - this is the second time this news agency has reported King Abdullah as being “clinically dead”. Obviously the first time they were wrong, too.
There is no confirmation from any reputable (Non-Iranian) source that I can find.
Here are the only 3 links that come up on a Google News Search:
InSerbia - article filed 1 hour ago, based upon the Press TV report.
This article in another Iranian source - (Ahlul Bayt News Agency):
And finally, the only other article is from the FARS News Agency. Yet, another Iranian government controlled source.
Bin dead long?
This is one funeral Obama won’t miss. He skipped Maggie’s funeral. Bet he goes here and bows to his beloved king.
It doesn’t matter which member of the family takes over, Saudi Arabia will still continue to fund the Wahhabi mosques around the world that are the main driver of Islamic extremism.
Saudi kings are selected among members of the royal family....and not primogeniture like the British royals. The voting is done by the extended Saudi royals
If the Saudis pick a new king that is willing to dump the umma (religious police)....you may see some changes
Bandar for King!!
