Here Comes ISIL?

Saudi king warns West will be jihadists’ next target – Yahoo News

Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) (AFP) – King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is “rapid” action.

“If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,” he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.

I think this is really a somewhat oblique admission on the part of the Saudis that ISIL has slipped the Saudi financial leash, and is now truly out of their control.

If my theory that it has been the Saudi and Iranian regimes restraining the Muslim nutcases from a major push in western homelands has any credibility, then the loss of that restraint is a very dangerous development.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
