Former Saudi Ambassador: Congress Hates Us, and It’s the Jews’ Fault
The former Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States, Prince Turki Al-Faisal, says the US Congress is the “center of hostility” in America toward the religious apartheid kingdom.
Obviously, he hasn’t spent much time at Little Green Footballs.
But he knows exactly who to blame for all this hostility. Go ahead, take a wild guess.
Congress Center of Anti-Saudi Hostility, Says Turki. (Hat tip: sr_soph.)
RIYADH, 11 April 2007 — Prince Turki Al-Faisal, former Saudi ambassador to the United States, accused the US Congress of being “the center of hostility” in America toward Saudi Arabia.
“The reasons for that are many, the first of which is the Zionist lobby in the United States,” Prince Turki said at a symposium entitled “The Role of Diplomacy in Political Crises,” organized by the Saudi Association for Media and Communications here yesterday.
He said that the lobby was powerful and had a direct impact on the decisions taken by members of Congress. “The lobby supports and encourages Congress members to take hostile stances toward Saudi Arabia,” he said.
I knew you could guess! Of course, he’s talking about the Jews. The all-purpose scapegoat for everything wrong in his world.
OK, so it’s not all the doing of the all-powerful Zionist Conspiracy. There was that little incident with the impromptu pilots, which the good people of America surely must have forgotten by now?
Prince Turki said that before Sept. 11, 2001, public surveys showed that 45 percent of Americans believed that the Kingdom was a friendly nation. “After it was announced that 15 of the 19 hijackers who took part in the attacks were Saudi, public surveys showed that 60 percent believed that Saudi Arabia was a hostile country,” he said.
