Saudi regime is in deep trouble

It will eventually hit everyone: that both Al-Qa`idah and ISIS come out of the same ideological background as the Saudi regime.  It will be inevitable: people will conclude that to stem the tide of those Islamist fanatics you need to bring down the House of Saud. But the House of Saud feels very nervous: their behavior (and even their rapprochement with Qatar and Iran are examples) tells a lot. Like the story about moving the tomb of the prophet: they are now at pains to tell us over and over again that it is not true. They are on the defensive.
