Posted on 11/26/2017 7:42:29 AM PST by RoosterRedux
Saudi Arabia's powerful crown prince vowed to "pursue terrorists until they are wiped from the face of the earth" as officials from 40 Muslim countries gathered Sunday in the first meeting of an Islamic counter-terrorism alliance.
"In past years, terrorism has been functioning in all of our countries... with no coordination" among national authorities, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is also the Saudi defence minister, said in his keynote speech at the gathering in Riyadh.
"This ends today, with this alliance."
The summit is the first meeting of defence ministers and other senior officials from the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition, which officially counts 41 countries and identifies as a "pan-Islamic unified front" against violent extremism.
The alliance was announced in 2015 under the auspices of Prince Mohammed, whose rapid ascent since his appointment as heir to the throne in June has shaken the political scene across the region.
The alliance groups largely, although not exclusively, Sunni-majority or Sunni-ruled countries.
It excludes Saudi Arabia's arch-rival, Shiite-dominated Iran, as well as Syria and Iraq, whose leaders have close ties to Tehran.
Sunday's meeting coincides with an escalation in tensions between Riyadh and Tehran, particularly over wars in Syria and Yemen and the political structure of multi-confessional Lebanon.
Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of supporting armed groups across the Middle East, including Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah and Yemen's Huthi rebels.

Need to wipe Islam from the face of the Earth.
Off he goes after Wahabbists ill listen. If he has decided that all terrorism is Shia, then hes just having an Islamic civil war and justifying his side.
This “MBS” guy Mohammed bin Salman is on a crusade against Shia Iran and the only reason he gets any attention is because his country has oil and money.
There’s a sea of propaganda out there right now to erase the Saudi-Al Qaeda ISIS connection that has been the reality of recent years and to make you believe Iran is behind terrorism instead.
President Trump supports MBS in the name of reforming his country which should remind us that Saudi Arabia has a track record of corruption and supporting terrorists with most of the 9/11 hijackers Saudis, not Iranians.
At the end of WW2, it was the Germans that wiped out the remaining German terrorist resistance.
It ain’t going to happen........ there are hundreds of millions.
You should be thankful an Arab leader, soon to be keeper of the two holy mosques, has risen to go on offense against the terrorist shiites
It needs to be outlawed.
It’s well overdue to remove the barnacle from progress and achievement’s ass.
He has put Prince Alawaleed bin Talal under arrest for corruption. The Prince is the primary financial backer of radical islam (of the Sunni variety) in the U.S.
~the terrorist shiites~
Are you talking about the Iranians who flew airplanes into the WTC? Oh..they were Saudis.
Or maybe a Syrian Osama bin Laden? Nope..he is a Saudi too.
And the list goes on.
“... his country has oil and money.”
the oil is going away as a profit center and the money he has comes from all the Prices he has shaken down literally. Other that that KSA is going rapidly broke. War is the answer to diverting attention away from the failed state and maintaining power and control.
On sunday mornings, do you stay in church when the elders take the rattlesnakes from their cages and walk with them up and down the aisles?
Saudi Arabia’s Great Gamble
There is indeed a terrible terrible evil sickness in Islam unfortunately it is right on their Koran. Invade, terrorize/ murder, rape, pillage its gonna be a most difficult job to remove the Muslim scourge from the world
You might want to note as well that Prince bin Talal was always fairly well tied to the Bush ‘team’.
There is no such thing as a holy mosque.
Words are cheap. Actions speak louder than words. The “new Saudi” approach has been announced for months, including calling the Iranian supreme leader a “Hitler.” We shall see, what we shall see. After 9/11 (and before) the Saudi ruling family was not our friend.
The Bushes were certainly not helpful regarding terrorism.
Correct. It's a mosk.
Yes, I want to see some of these Sowdie mafia (princes) beheaded or extradited to the US for prosecution.
If, in the future, Moe screws up or breaks his word...let "the bombing begin in 15 minutes".
