A member of Saudi Arabia's royal family called on newly inaugurated U.S. President Barack Obama to change Washington's unbalanced stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and warned that U.S.-Saudi ties were at risk if the new administration failed to take "forceful steps" to end Palestinian suffering.

Prince Turki al-Faisal said that Israel had come close to "killing the prospect of peace" with its 22-day assault on the Gaza Strip and said that although Obama was inheriting a “basket full of snakes” in the region the situation could be calmed if the necessary steps were taken.

Muslims are for killing, all of them, never forget that.
They have one goal, and that is to dominate the world in the name of Islam. Anyone who is not Muslim is an Infidel, it says this in their bible called a Koran. Infidels starting with the Jews must be eliminated so that the world can all become one religion...Islam!

screw Obama that dirty Muslim in hiding said...

Sounds like a reason to start impeachment to me.
