Saudi National Anthem: to your i-pod NOW. Sometimes I realize why Lebanese journalists specialize in prostrating for the House of Saud. I mean, there is not much to admire in the beheadings, stoning, and lashes in the Kingdom, but you have to admire the National Anthem of Saudi Arabia, especially when it says: "Long Live Our Beloved King. Our Spirits Are to Be Sacrificed for his Sake, he The Guardian of the Holy Site. Hey, Yell Out Long Live the King. Hey Raise the Banner of the Homeland; Chant and Recite this Anthem. Long Live, Long Live the King."
PS It has been pointed out that this is the old anthem, but you can still enjoy it, no?
