The Saudis, hotbed of violent Wahabi Islam are accusing America of harboring religious fundamentalists. Yup, the home of 15 people who killed nearly 3000 people in one fell swoop, a state that pays off families who send their children to blow up Jews and kill themselves, and a state that continually broadcasts messages condoning genocide, thinks it’s the Christians that are the problem.
