Saudi king warns that West is next


Saudi King Abdullah warns West will be jihadists' next target


Jeddah: King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is "rapid" action.

"If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month," he said in remarks quoted today by Asharq al-Awsat daily.

"Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East," said the king who was speaking at a welcoming ceremony yesterday for new ambassadors, including a new envoy from Saudi ally the United States.

The Islamic State (IS) jihadist group has prompted widespread concern as it advances in both Syria and Iraq, killing hundreds of people, including in gruesome beheadings and mass executions.

Lack of action would be "unacceptable" in the face of the phenomenon, King Abdullah said.

"You see how they (jihadists) carry out beheadings and make children show the severed heads in the street," he said, condemning the "cruelty" of such acts.

"It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: 'Fight terrorism with force, reason and (necessary) speed'."

President Barack Obama has yet to decide whether the United States should launch raids against positions held by the Islamic State jihadist group in Syria to follow US air strikes on IS activities in Iraq.

The #1 goal of terrorists is to instill fear.

They are winning with many people.

I would think that beheading innocent people would be a very fearful thing.

This is what I've been saying like forever! It's sad that Obama isn't taking any of this seriously, not having any strategy yet. I can't understand how some people aren't taking these threats seriously? What's wrong with people? smh

Was that really necessary? Instead of bashing the OP why not express your concern? You are concerned aren't you?

Everyone is concerned.y observation stems from the fact that you can count on virtually every post to be some form of fear mongering. You can always skip my replies.
