Our “special friend” Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has this to say about recent terrorist attacks:
Crown Prince Abdullah — remember, he’s the enlightened one in the family, the one the Bush administration is counting on — was shown on a tape obtained by NBC News blaming a recent wave of terrorist attacks on Zionists.
“Zionism is behind it,” Abdullah said, through a translator. “It has become clear now. It has become clear to us,” he said. “It is not 100 percent, but 95 percent that the Zionist hands are behind what has happened.”
This might be a bit perplexing, since al Qaeda has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
But not to worry. Prince Nayef, the interior minister, explained what’s going on. “Al Qaeda is backed by Israel and Zionism.” Ah, but of course.
So Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has circulated a “Dear Colleague” letter asking for House members to condemn these “scurrilous and inflammatory charges.”
It was only a matter of time before people figured out those obvious ties between Osama bin Laden and Ariel Sharon.
Just think of it: A Zionist wave is sweeping the Arabian peninsula. Who knew?
