BREAKING NEWS: SAUDI KING ABDULLAH BACKS EGYPT’S MILITARY RULER, WARNS AGAINST OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
BREAKING NEWS: Facing condemnation at every hand from the West, Egypt’s military rulers received a powerful shot in the arm from Riyadh Friday, Aug. 16, with an unprecedented public assurance from Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz that the kingdom supports Egypt in the fight “against terrorism” – the military rulers’ term for Muslim Brotherhood resistance. In a statement broadcast by official Al-Ekhbariya TV, Abdullah said Egypt’s stability is being targeted by “haters” and warned that anyone that interferes in Egypt’s internal affairs seeks to “waken sedition.” DEBKAfile and DEBKA Weekly have been reporting since last week that Saudi Arabia and the UAR stand firmly behind Egypt’s military strongman Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi. DEBKAfile reports a weak response to Brotherhood’s call for millions to rally Friday to join in the protest in support of deposed president Mohamed Morsi and against the government crackdown two days ago which left more than 600 dead. No more than tens of thousands of supporters took to the streets across the country Friday. By nightfall, 50 people were reported killed in clashes across the country – in Cairo, Fayoum, Damietta and Ismailia – including 24 security personnel. An officer was killed at one of the checkpoints thrown up to block the demonstrators’ access to Tahrir Square. The relatively low turnout points to the Muslim Brotherhood’s hard core having decided that avoiding further deadly clashes with the Egyptian military is the better part of valor. More
Things in the Middle East and especially, in Egypt, are quickly changing: here is the Saudi King supporting the Egyptian military against terrorism of the Muslim Brotherhood: while America is still waiting for our "president" to condemn the actions, persecutions, and torture of Morsi's gang. Far be it for me to add salt to the wounds, but isn't this the same Saudi King Obama bowed to in 2009?

This week, Congress agreed to allow Obama's administration to arm the rebels/terrorists in Syria. If anyone doubts the rebels are butchers, take a look here.
And we are all aware of what has happened in Libya since the elimination of Gaddaffi; al Qaeda's black flag flies freely though out Libya, as it did last September 11th, when our diplomats were tortured and murdered. Need I remind anyone that the attacks in Benghazi are being traced back to Morsi? Is that why our administration has dragged its feet for the past year in bringing justice for the murders of four Americans?
Let's hope someone in Washington decides to have a real heart-to-heart talk with Obama when he returns from vacation about his foreign policies, before the United States is left without a friend in this entire world!
