I write this during the weekend that finally saw the end of those two dreadful Chechens who were described by many newspapers—starting with the New York Times, of course—as typical American teenagers.  Some Americans, is all that comes to mind.  Why is it that after every outrage family members and friends of the perpetrators are given space to air their sick views, especially here in the United States?  I can’t remember British newspapers, or even the grotesquely lefty BBC, giving equal space to Muslims defending the terrorist attack of 2005, nor any Spanish media allowing defenders of the 2003 outrage in Madrid to pollute the airwaves with the usual blah-blah-blah about American imperialism being the real cause of terrorism.

Having said that, American involvement in the Middle East and total support of Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands, and the war against Iraq and Afghanistan, are the reasons all terrorists give for blowing up innocent people minding their own business.  As long as Uncle Sam plays policeman to the world we will suffer the consequences.  And as long as our borders are open to Muslims there will be terrorism at home.  Incidentally, what were these Chechens doing here anyway?  In the year when those bums brought their brood to these shores Chechen terrorists had murdered more than 300 children in Russia alone.  The immigration authorities have as much to answer for as anyone I can think of.  It might not sound very politically correct, but there is no other way of putting it.  Shut down radical Islamic propaganda over the internet—the good Uncle listens in on everything, so he could do that in a jiffy, and to hell with the ACLU—deport all those who have involved themselves with Islamic hate preachers, and presto, you will be reading about terrorism in France and Britain but not over here.  (Only the nutjobs to worry about after that.)

But that is not the point of this column.  The real terrorists behind the idiots who either blow themselves up or shoot innocents in public places are our closest allies, the Saudis and the Qataris, those nice fat guys in sheets who behead women accused of adultery, execute teenagers for stealing, and, having bought most of Europe, are busy trying to make their economic power felt over here.  Their first client: none other than Al Gore, who sold his TV network to Al Jazeera for 500 million big ones.  (Don’t worry, Al; the man who stole the election from you sold out the whole country to the Saudis for less after September 11.)  The big lie is that Al Jazeera is not used as a vehicle by Al Qaeda and is not hostile to the United States, but is a professional news channel that has won prominent U.S. journalism prizes.

Al Jazeera is simply a vehicle for the Sunni Qatari rulers—in cahoots with the Sunni Saudi kleptocracy—to shape the narrative of the volatile Middle East in favor of themselves.  Qatar and Saudi Arabia, the two richest countries in the world, are ruled by self-proclaimed absolute monarchs.  They fear only the Wahhabi clergy, who turn a blind eye to their whoring, boozing, and stealing of their respective countries’ wealth.  In order to keep the clergy quiescent, those nice guys you see getting off private 747s in the world’s fleshpots keep buying arms from Uncle Sam and from France and Britain.  They are the ones who are supplying arms to the radical Muslims trying to overthrow the last secular leader in the Middle East, Bashar al-Assad.  Their wealth has ensured that the world sees Assad as the villain, and the so-called rebels as the good guys.  As I write, the idiotic Kerry is continuing Hillary’s stupidities in threatening to arm the “rebels.”  All this because the Saudis and Qataris wish to establish a Sunni corridor throughout the Middle East, cutting out the majority Shi’ites.

Yes, dear readers, it is as simple as that.  Take the case of Bahrain.  A tiny Sunni minority keeps a 90-percent Shi’ite majority enslaved.  Obama chooses to ignore this outrage because the U.S. Fifth Fleet is based in Bahrain.  The Saudis send tanks and troops occasionally over a bridge that connects the tiny island to the desert hellhole when the natives get too restless.  Currying favors with dictators was a no-no when Obama was running for president, but it has somehow escaped his notice now that he’s in the driver’s seat.

Every madrassa all over the Middle East and the subcontinent is paid for by Saudi money.  These schools of hate teach only one thing: jihad against the West.  It would take the Fifth Fleet a day or two to do to the Saudis, Qataris, and Bahrainis what the Russian captain did to the Monte Carlo authorities when he gambled away his battleship’s money on a drunken night at the casino.  He sent a message asking for the money to be returned, or he would start firing.  The money came back quicker than you can say “Monaco.”  Uncle Sam should tell the unholy trio to stop financing terror, or else.  That would be the only real tribute to the victims of Boston.
