Saudi media and love of ISIS: what English language Saudi propaganda does not tell you

You would not tell from English language Saudi propaganda outlets that Saudi and Qatari media are quite jubilant about victories of ISIS in Iraq and Syria.  In this headline from one of the most vulgar and crude of the media of Saudi princes and their in-laws, Al-Arabiyyah, there is a headline that Iran has shipped scud missiles to destroy ISIS.  So in English, Saudi media say that Iranian and Syrian regimes don't fight ISIS, while in Arabic they say that Syrian and Iranian regime are savage in the fight against ISIS.
