Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd has died. Crown Prince Abdullah, who has been effectively running the country since Fahd’s stroke a decade ago, is now officially the king. (Here are the Wikipedia pages on Fahd and Abdullah.)
RIP / I’m sorry the King has died and all that & I hope Allah will receive his soul etc. (if that’s how Allah does it, what do I know from Allah :) but I never Cared much for the House of Saud / and I STILL don’t Care much for the House of Saud / :>
Oh, that poor King Abdullah. I’m so sad. Inconsolable, really. Of all the fat, decadent, strongman Arab tyrants using religion as a devious device to oppress their own people by directing their hate at foreign oppression, he was my favorite.
