Saudi Hora

“Best of the Web Today” comments on Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah's attribution of the recent terror attack in Saudi Arabia to "Zionism."

The Saudi Press Agency reported:
Addressing the gathering, the Crown Prince said the Kingdom is targeted.
"It became clear to us now that Zionism is behind terrorist actions in the Kingdom."
"I can say that I am 95 percent sure of that'', he said. He regretted that Zionism has misled some of our sons.
James Taranto notes:
"It's an age-old story isn't it? Young people lose their way and develop disrespect for their parents and traditional values. They stay out late, they let their hair grow, they listen to heavy metal, or maybe Hebrew pop tunes--and next thing you know, they're stooges of Satan, or, worse yet, Zionists. Oh sure, it's easy for us Americans to feel superior, but isn't this the same thing, more or less, that happened at Columbine?"
