The fanatical Salafists (recipients of generous GCC funding) have been treated as innocent and harmless pious men in the Western media since the beginning of the Arab uprisings. That was a mistake. They are not harmless and they are not far from engaging in bigoted and violent attacks against those that they deem to be infidels (local or international). They are and will be the natural allies of the Bin Ladenites. Look at Tripoli of North Lebanon and you will understand plenty about the future of those non-harmless Salafites.
