Posted on 08/03/2014 5:35:57 AM PDT by SJackson
Arabias King Abdullah on Friday broke his silence on the Gaza conflict, which started in early July, by condemning the conflict and the inaction of the international community.
This [international] community, which has observed silently what is happening in the whole region, was indifferent to what is happening as if what is happening is not its concern, Abdullah said in a statement on Saudi state-run television.
Despite describing the situation in Gaza as war crimes against humanity, the Saudi monarch stopped short of calling for action against Israel.
The Gaza conflict has highlighted a growing rift in the Arab world which has pitted Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia against Turkey and Qatar, who both support the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, whose government proposed a cease-fire that was rejected by Hamas, has been similarly quiet on the Israel-Hamas conflict and has largely kept Egypts border with Gaza shut, despite the ongoing humanitarian situation in Gaza.
Additionally, in an apparent reference to the bloodshed in Iraq and Syria, King Abdullah slammed the killing of innocent people and the mutilation of bodies, which he deemed contrary to Islamic values, and called on Middle East leaders and religious scholars to prevent Islam from being hijacked by extremists.
Egypt and Saudi Arabia view the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, as well as other Islamic extremist groups like Hezbollah and the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), as threats to the stability of the region.

Not to worry, the White House and State are on the job.
Eqypt isn't having it and is seems Saudi Arabia isn't either!
The older and wiser bro's are gonn'a kick some ass ... or stand back and let the boys bloody themselves .... but they ain't gonn'a stop it.
It looks like the Saudis and Egyptians are letting Qatar’s adventurism with Hamas take it’s course against Israel.
Arab neighbors consider their Paleostinian “brothers” to be a pestilence whose only purpose is to be used against Israel. Iran uses them against Israel by funding Hamas.
Here the Saudi King is not even supporting the Paleostinians because Israel is useful to the Saudis as a nation threatened by Iranian proxy warriors and Iranian nukes same as the Saudis are. The future can easily see joint military operations by Israel and Saudis against Iran
Most didn't notice when Obama chose to deliver his first speech as President from Al Ahzar “University” in Cairo, and insisted in seating Muslim Brotherhood members in the front row, making attendance by Mubarak impossible because by law he would have been condoning the illegal act of attending a public event with the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned organization. Most didn't notice when Obama, while continuing to allow U.S. airline companies to fly into Ukraine, Sudan, Libya, Malaysia, when airplanes have been shot at. The implied threat is that if and when Israel needs new supplies of the jointly developed Iron Dome, or F16 parts, Obama will insure that the promise of the Muslim Brotherhood to eliminate Israel and kill as many as they can is fulfilled. It would be no surprise to see the Obama administration do what the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran hasn't been able to do. That would pave the way for the end of the Saudi Family, executed either by Persians or forces from Muslim Brotherhood agencies financed by Qatar, ISIS, Al Nusra, even Turkey, a NATO member nation and virtually a Islamic Republic, like IRAN, except Sunni, not Shia.
With such hatred for the Muslim Brotherhood savages, including the U.S. as Muslim Brothers, the salvation of Europe would probably be left to Russia, or even China, as the Muslim Brotherhood could demand the imposition of Sharia in France, England, Norway, Sweden, Italy, Spain, in exchange for petroleum. Do you believe Obama’s teleprompter was mistaken when he announced in a speech shortly after his inauguration that the U.S. was one of the largest Muslim Nations, and said during the his first campaign that he had visited “most of the 57 states?” There are 57 states (56 plus Palestine) in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the OIC, now known as, and referred to by many Muslim Brotherhood Leaders, as the new Caliphate.
Abdullah has more sense than Barack. Obama Al-Husseini is on the side of Hamas, and Arabia is on the side of ISRAEL! “Interesting times” indeed!
Stability of the region?
When has the middle east ever been stable?

I think that’s actually in the text up there. But well said.
I listened to the whole thing yesterday.
"We moved our base camp last night and were now positioned literally
within feet of the river. Have been sitting here watching the border
patrol patrolling in their riverboats all night and all morning..."
