The Royal House provides stability in Saudi Arabia since a long time. As long as there is no one who is able to govern the country fairer than the al Saud family, the royal family is the best government.

The Wahabit current of Islam funded by the Saoud is controversial even among muslims.

West will be next ISIS target unless there is rapid action, Saudi King warns, as jihadists now behead a Lebanese soldier | Mail Online

The king of Saudi Arabia has warned that Europe and the U.S. could be ISIS's next targets unless Western government fight terrorism with 'force, reason and speed'.

King Abdullah said extremists 'know no border' and could begin sweeping through countries outside of the Middle East unless action is taken.

His comments, made at a reception for foreign ambassadors, came as ISIS posted another video on social media showing the beheading of a Lebanese soldier who was captured in Syria.

Although he did not mention any terrorist groups by name, King Abdullah's comments - published by state media today - appeared to be aimed at drawing Washington and NATO forces into a wider fight against the Islamic State and its supporters in the region.

The group has already seized wide areas of land across Syria and Iraq.

He said: 'If we ignore them, I am certain that after a month they will reach Europe and, after another month, America.

Moscow and Riyadh both want to see oil prices react to market forces, and not to geopolitical muscle flexing, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, said Friday.

Saudi Arabia and Russia believe that pricing should be market-oriented and let supply and demand play the decisive role. We and our Saudi partners are against shifting markets as result of political or geopolitical schemes, Lavrov said at a news conference after holding talks with the Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal in Moscow.
