What is to be done?

  • During and after World War I, Britain's India Office backed the House of Saud; the Foreign Office backed the Hashemites. The India Office won 
  • But the entire post-1917 Middle East settlement designed by the British to replace the Ottoman Empire is fraying
  • The role assigned to the House of Saud in that arrangement has become obsolete -- and nefarious

"Saudi Arabia" is not a God-
given entity

  • The House of Saud was given dominion over Arabia in 1922 by the British
  • It wrested the Guardianship of the Holy Places -- Mecca and Medina -- from the Hashemite dynasty
  • There is an "Arabia," but it needs not be "Saudi"

An ultimatum to the House of
Saud

  • Stop any funding and support for any fundamentalist madrasa, mosque, ulama, predicator anywhere in the world
  • Stop all anti-U.S., anti-Israeli, anti-Western predication, writings, etc., within Arabia
  • Dismantle, ban all the kingdom's "Islamic charities," confiscate their assets
  • Prosecute or isolate those involved in the terror chain, including in the Saudi intelligence services
