These are amazing times.

Such a contrast to what is happening in Northern Syria today.

May this be an example to the Middle East. It is time that Turkey is forced to stop the insanity.

Really amazing. Saudi Arabia could be in the midst of a fundamental transformation that could have a huge impact

You know the same Saudi prince spent $450 million for Da Vinci’s portrait of Jesus Christ:

Orthodox Ping!

Save Thy people, O Lord,
and bless Thine inheritance.

If the Crown Prince of Islam recognizes at some point the Resurrection of Jesus and His defeat of Death, I will be speechless as I kneel and pray.

I am not sure that however that Islam could ever be Christian. I believe there are fundamental incompatibilities and conflicts with their Koran.

No question this new Saudi monarch in waiting or whatever he is is a new breed of Wahhabism cat

Visiting a Christian church and on good terms with Israeli Jews

It’s a new world order thanks to Iran and their belligerence

It merits noticing.

I’ve been a great fan of el Sisi since before Morsi was overthrown. He has kept his promises and he has also never let up on Terrorists.

I saw his post. This is amazing to watch. If, as the President alluded to, that Jared has been working hard on the Middle East peace process and got this ball rolling, then he’s done what others could not. I wonder when we’ll see any of this on broadcast news...a week, 2 weeks? Ever?

Never said they were the same. They never will be.

Coexist? Possibly.

Muslims recognize Jesus’s existence but not what we believe about him.

Islamist are the issue that prevents coexistence.

I think we give el Sisi credit for some of this.

My Egyptian friends love him. He is a great leader.

The incoming Saudi generation is making concrete steps toward changing the place of Sunni mainstream in the world. Iran will be a backwater.

This is incredible good news.

I do understand many fear the repeated duplicity of all types of Islam seen in the last 25 years, but this is something that cannot be undone — it happened.

The post itself if from a Saudi Arabian national news source. It would not be printed without the Leadership’s approval.

Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism confirmed it purchased the most expensive painting in the world.

The New York Times reported that the man behind the purchase was a little-known Saudi prince named Bader bin Abdullah bin Farhan al-Saud, an associate of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Saudi Arabia has since said the prince was acting as a middleman for the United Arab Emirates, a key ally in the region.
“His Highness Prince Badr, as a friendly supporter of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, attended its opening ceremony on November 8th and was subsequently asked by the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism to act as an intermediary purchaser for the piece,” the Saudi embassy in Washington said in a statement.
