    Saudi Arabia criticizing any Western nation for anything is absolutely jaw-dropping. Hell, Saudi doesn't possess the moral capital to criticize Al Qaeda or ISIS, especially since they've funded Islamic terror for decades. The chutzpah of these backwards, oil-soaked, uber-wealthy, tribal dictators is certainly something to behold.

    They are right. It was an act of atheist terrorism.

    Right or wrong isn't the issue. It's like Adolf Hitler criticizing the Ku Klux Klan.

    But the same goes for Barry who's supporting them.

    I am with you, but there is no and have never been moral in politics.
    What do we really expect of countries that in the XXI. century still practice Sharia (شريعة).

    I bet if those Muslim women weren't wearing their hijabs, the Saudis wouldn't have even opened their big mouths. The country who doesn't allow women to drive has the nerve to condemn "American terrorism". As if the American government orchestrated that attack.

    The irony is that those countries not letting women drive have the highest rates of accidents. :p

    Might as well include you along side him since you're funding those heinous activities with your tax payer dollars. :eek:

    Do I have a choice?

    Your logic is like blaming the Pizza guy who has to pay protection money to the mob for financing the mafia.

    I wonder if that disgusting New Arab King also condemned the Islamic thug that shot and killed/injured the Denmark synagogue attendees just a little over 1 day ago.

    Oh no, of course he did not.

    Naturally, Saudi Arabia is the #1 incubator and exporter of Islamic terrorisms and jihadis. The New Arab King won't say anything to harm an important export industry of his kingdom.

    You could renounce your American citizenship and move to some desert island or at least stop pretending that your hands are clean. :rolleyes:

    Or I could just jump of the next bridge :rolleyes:

    I am not an american citizen and there is no such thing as a deserted island that you can simply move to.

    Agreed and all governments are involved in some level of corruption and immorality. All you can do is select the one you most agree with and take ownership of its evils.

    Wikipedia seems to disaggree on the technical side.....



    ...... but one could also say "Men still don't even have the Right to vote in any meaningfull election in Saudi Arabia."

    :p

    I haven't read the Saudi statement itself, but that Guardian article does absolutely nothing to suggest a condemnation of the USA. The OP may be using the phrase 'American terrorism' in an innocent fashion (ie meaning 'terrorism in America') but how the rest of you can interpret the article as Saudi criticism of the USA is beyond me.

    ----------

    I suggest you reread the article. Or, more likely, read the article for the first time.

    As indignant as we find Saudi Arabia's words, they are no more more or less hypocritical than most countries' self righteous outrage and shows of solidarity after negative events.

    Remember the freedom march following Hebdo? Every leader who took part has hampered freedom of speech in one form or another. And so on.

    It appears that they condemned both the act in North Carolina, and, the acts in Denmark, as "terrorist" acts.

    Denmark, certainly, but, I think that they are rushing to judgement in the North Carolina case. To me, that incident looks like just another act of just another irresponsible person who happened to have access to guns. A literally daily occurrence in the U.S. Some would say that it is (just) the inevitable cost of "freedom". (Yes, I am a gun control advocate.)

    Is there any evidence? Apart from demographics.

    You are so right. They have the "Right" to vote but ONLY with approval of their husband or male guardian!

    I think you need to look up the definition of a "Right". However you might have something because people on this forum will commonly say even Rights have limitations.

    You can't yell fire in a crowded theater and you can't vote without your husbands permission. Sounds fair to me!!!!

    Critical of the killer, certainly. Not critical of the USA.

    Would be interesting to hear more about the background of the killer.
