Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz is reported to be clinically dead as the monarch is not recently seen in the public.

A Saudi journalist working for London-Based Asharq Alawsat says the Saudi monarch has been clinically dead since Wednesday.

He also quoted medical sources in Saudi Arabia as saying that the king’s vital organs, including his heart, kidneys and lungs, have stopped functioning.

That’s a popular fantasy.

In point of fact it was started by the Saudi government and run out of a Saudi government facility.

I wonder if he is a good witch...or a bad witch.

Either way he's a sandwitch.

The first time I heard of the “virgins” awaiting a martyr, it was seven. That was in the mid-seventies. The next I heard of them, it grew to 42. Now it’s 72?

I somehow think of the parlor/party game “Rumors” or “Gossip.” A person whispers something into someone’s ear, who whispers it to the next person, etc. When it get back to the original whisperer, it is not even CLOSE to what was originally said.

The tale grows with the telling.

The Islamic prophecy of the return of the 12th Imam Al-Mahdi is that he will be revealed upon the death of the King of Saudi Arabia. Not saying this means anything, but thought it was interesting. I kind of believe that their Imam is our Anti-Christ.

Have you ever been there? Do you actually know or have business transactions with Saudi’s?

Isn’t all you know really second or even fourth hand hearsay?

That sounds rather cloyingly familiar. It’s amazing how “business” makes people “arabists at heart”.

And no, no hearsay. Straight and irrefutable evidence.

There are NO “good” Sauds.

President Bush was friends with some of the Saudi’s and even brought planeloads of them over on 9/11. I think America is friendly with Saudi’s. You may want to reevaluate your post.

Radical Islam is founded in Wahhabism. Wahhabism is the form of Islam which takes a literal interpretation of the Quran.

Its where Sharia law comes from and is the primary faith of Saudi Arabia. It was created in the early 1700s in Saudi Arabia.

The dead King didn’t support it publicly because it was a threat to his power and money. He came down hard on radicals in Saudi Arabia because they were a threat to his power.

Saudi Arabia, the country where Christian Bibles are prohibited, women can’t drive or have any other rights. Its where Mecca is, a place Christians are prohibited from even going.

They export their faith and pretend to be friends of the west until they have control over you. Many people see only the money, the gold and the glitter and believe Saudi Arabia is a modern country willing to live peacefully with other peoples.

I'm not a doctor and don't play one on tv, but this sounds like dead without adjectives:

"He also quoted medical sources in Saudi Arabia as saying that the king’s vital organs, including his heart, kidneys and lungs, have stopped functioning."

Literal belief in the Quran means:

1. slavery is ok
2. all infidels should be killed
3. women are property
4. sharia law is the only law
5. its ok to rape any woman who isn’t escorted by a family member.
6. Its ok to kill a female family member if she so much as shows an ankle or her hair outside of the family
7. sex with children is ok
8. sex with animals is ok, as long as you don’t sell the meat inside your village

Are you ok with those? Are you saying the Bible teaches the same things?

Whose side of this war are you on?

Well, as long as the meat is sold outside the village it must be OK. Makes me glad I’ve never wanted to eat kabob prepared by Muslims.

Prince Salman was close to political conservatism according to a 2007 US diplomatic cable. There he argues against introducing democracy to Saudi Arabia because of regional and tribal divisions.[32]

And what genius at State decided that a man who does not favor democracy is in any way a 'conservative'?

American wife? I believe you are confusing King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia with King Abdullah of Jordan. The second Abdullah, the King of Jordan, has an American wife (and an American mother, for what it is worth).

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, whom I have been aware of since 1980, is/was of a very conservative Islamic stripe, whom many of the Americans who were in 'The Magic Kingdom' at the same time *I* was, never wanted to see ascend to the throne. We all preferred that his half-brother Fahd to succeed King Khalid, which is what happened. Abdullah succeeded Fahd, which concerned me at the time it happened, but it appears that my concerns may (or may not) have been unjustified (there is so much hidden about 'The Magic Kingdom' to even observant eyes that an outsider really never fully knows the score...)

Wikipedia? Seriously? So, I went and looked anyway... absolutely nothing on the King’s wikipedia page regarding death.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdullah_of_Saudi_Arabia

You know what I find even more amazing??? This report and picture out of Saudi Arabia yesterday - May 27, 2013 - showing King Abdullah speaking to Prince Salman, and detailing how the King chaired a cabinet meeting all while “clinically dead” according to the Iranian government...
http://www.arabnews.com/news/453084

Next time I would seriously suggest waiting on word from a reputable source before taking anything you see in the Iranian Press as truth.

Too bad(?) this is all wishful thinking on the part of the Iranian Mullahs. Meanwhile, Saudi Press published a picture of the King [apparently] taken yesterday, speaking with Prince Salman, before chairing a cabinet meeting. Pretty amazing whose organs are all non-functioning. ;)

Every once in a while I take a chance and it fails. I always feel bad about it and the fact that Wikipedia has taken down their blurb about King Abdullah being deceased tells me I’m not alone.

I try to be as accurate as possible when I post a news break. That there are propaganda disseminating organs operating as bona fide news organizations makes it difficult knowing who to trust and who not to: I had not known there were Iranian propaganda disseminating news agencies until it was pointed out to me a day or so ago.

The problem with covering these ‘news agencies’ is one never knows whether their product is truthful or bogus. So now I know something new: ignore them.

Thank you for your most gracious advice.

I suspect that the bow was kind of like Roman Catholics kissing the Pope’s ring - a sign of respect. The King of Saudi Arabia is the Protector of the Two Holy Cities (Mecca & Medina) and BHO2 is a Muslim, so he bowed. Yes, a Muslim first and a Marxist second but above all, a liar.

If we knew the truth before the election, that BHO2 was Muslim, he wouldn’t have been elected.
