Yeah, King Abdullah is alright as he is a slight 'reformist' although I do not like some of his politics. I am not a fan of the princes Sultan, Nayef and Mishaal.

I reckon King Faisal was good for abolishing slavery, introducing TV and starting women's education

I like King Abdullah too sound like respectful man.
but I think most intesting one was King Faisal.

In a PBS documentary i heard that when Faisal shut off the oil supply, he was threatened by the USA that a bombing of the Kingdom but Faisal just smile and said "Do whatever, we have been living in the desert on dates and we'll be very happy to go back to that."

LOL!
