“I vaguely remember a story ... I’m sure I read it as news ... but I could be wrong;
How the family of Saud had broken up and males were spread over the earth .. in fear for their lives ...
and they were summoned all back to the palace under the pretext of ‘all is forgive’ ...
and gullibly came back to being mowed down in the palace hall ...”
Are you a student of the Bible? Because that sounds a lot like 2 Kings 10: 18-27: Jehu’s slaughter of the prophets of Baal.
Now ... if no one chimes in and confirms what I think I think .. I'll sleep well tonight knowing God's Word has permeated my thought processes.
