Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah delivered a sobering message to President Bush on his visit to America this Thursday about the dangers of it's continued Pro-Israeli policies. While agreeing that the issues are complex and problematic, Prince Abdullah issued a strong warning to the United States.
"Please Dear God in the heavens above, do not make us oppose you."
Although afterwards Bush preferred to speak of the meeting favourably with reporters, describing the talks as "pretty damned ok," Abdullah spoke of clear dissension on matters of American policy. "We do not agree with what they are doing in Israel," Abdullah said, "to the Americans I say this, 'Do not make us
give all this food back!' When pointed out by reporters that refusing American aid will likely only hurt the Saudis, Abdullah snorted and said, "They forced our hand. It is their own damned fault. They can take their billions of dollars in foreign aid somewhere else." Abdullah then broke down in tears, pushing through reporters to his waiting taxi.
Anti-U.S sentiments continued in the Middle East, with Saudi Arabia's largest newspaper blasting the headline, "Who needs your help?? We do!! Take that America!!!" Opinions in the street seemed to mirror the newspapers. "Without American business I will likely wither and die," Shaliv al' Akhbar whispered into the camera, "if there was a kinder way of getting revenge against the American
infidels I would do it.. but they only respond to extremes. Very well. I will show them all." Chewing on his Big Mac thoughtfully, Akhbar wiped a tear on his NIKE t-shirt and screamed, "Death to America!"
President Bush expressed surprise later on in the evening when told of Abdullah's comments saying, " I thought me and the Prime Minister got along pretty well, we talked about our families and dreams." Bush even recounted an amusing incident where both leaders expressed apprehension over remaining in power. "I told him I hoped I would be the first Bush to be a "two termer" and he expressed terror at being violently assassinated and mutilated by angry Saudi's. Yeah it was pretty funny."
The meeting lasted for almost 5 hours before a tearful Abdullah acquired passage on a cargo plane to that "mierable hell hole of a desert that I love"
