    Let them kill each other.

    KSA, an absolute monarchy, corrupt, whose “princes” live in London spending their filthy money. They are only allowed to exists because of the insane wealth they own, nothing else. Despicable barbarians, they hate human rights and the west, but they don´t mind taking advantage of its privileges and banks. Funny, I wonder how many buildings built by Trump in the US belong to these savages (yet he keeps telling he´s against them). They support ISIS and who knows how many others. And don´t forget that Bin Laden was ... from there.

    Iran, home of a criminal, terrorist supporter regime. They have their hands covered in blood of so many innocents all over the world (Argentina included: AMIA). A psycho land ruled by a sick gang of clerics. They hold, yet, a small but inventive and well educated population that is oppressed by islamic regulations.

    Islam is the real threat to the western world and civilization. And these two countries are willing to support all attempts to destroy our world. I hope they wipe each other out of this planet.

    @2. But, on a specific example, press reports say that he was seen firing a weapon at police officers. Does that merit a death sentence in Saudi Arabia? Whatever. He's dead and no longer matters.

    Iran are of course the epitome of how to encourage other people to commit murder whilst staying in the background.

    And now that they have been caught out they throw their toys out of the donkey cart and start pointing fingers at all the other bat shit mad Muslim countries.

    We can only hope these cretins kill themselves instead of murdering westerners.

    The house of Saud is a prime target they claim. GOOD!
