You gotta love their guts.

I'm sure the Saudi's know they're being watched. I'm equally sure the US State department actually request statements of them for public consumption, statements of the following type.
Quote: 'senior religious scholars in Saudi Arabia have continually and unequivocally condemned terrorism. In our war against terrorism, these condemnations are a powerful weapon."In this statement, as well as in close to two dozen others by the Saudi embassy in Washington D.C. since the Riyadh bombings on March 12, 2003, the government of Saudi Arabia promoted the idea that the royal family and religious establishment have been espousing a message of tolerance.'

Sounds good eh?

However. What follows is NOT intended for the general audience (although like I said, they MUST be aware everyone who wants to will listen). A diatribe of seemingly unbelievable proportions (but they do it every Friday!)
Quote: '… Regarding a person who blows himself up, I know this issue is under disagreement among modern clerics and jurisprudents… There is nothing wrong with [martyrdom] if they cause great damage to the enemy. We can say that if it causes great damage to the enemy, this operation is a good thing. This is when we talk of Dar Al-Harb. But, if we speak of what happens in Muslim countries, such as Saudi Arabia … this is forbidden, brothers! This is the land of the Muslims. We must never do this in a Muslim country.'

Never in a Muslim country. But infidels? They aren't really human beings.

Read it all. At the Indispensable MEMRI
