Saudis upset with the UK

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah became the first Saudi monarch to visit the UK in over 20 years, but King Abdullah wanted to make sure to insult Great Britain by accusing them of not doing enough to fight international terrorism.

Abdullah claims that Great Britain is not taking the issue of terrorism seriously and that he passed information to the Btits which could have prevented the 2005 London terrorist attacks. He said he is upset that the British failed to act on the information.
Investigations by the Parliament's Intelligence Security Committee states there was no intelligence from the Saudis.

Abdullah went on to say fighting terrorism requires a huge efforts from countries like Britain. He then complained al Qaeda is a big problem in his own country and criticized other countries for not acting on his proposal for a UN clearing house for information about terrorism.
Now this is an interesting take from the Saudi King... And please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the leader of the country that produced all but two of the Islamic terrorists who brought us 9-11?

If the Saudi King is so worried about fighting international terrorism perhaps he should take a look to his own country with those madrassa schools where Muslim children are taught that Jews are less human and like apes and pigs. Just where does he get the room to criticize England on the issue of fighting terrorism?

If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

The only thing saving the Saudi King from the same fate of Iraq and Afghanistan is his oil.
