    If he was serious he would talk about returning to historic Islamic norms that were swept away by Whahabi innovations as opposed to talking about "moderate Islam". Anyway the proof of the pudding will be in the eating, that said a lot of the Saudi Royals aren't known exactly for their Piety along the French Riviera so it isn't at all unlikely that he sees the world radically different from your average Salafi and probably even has contempt for them, however that doesn't make him some heroic "Progressive" either.

    Bullshit of the highest order. All the British installed Gulf monarchies depend on Wahhabism for their legitimacy (what little legitimacy they have).

    The Persian Gulf of 2,500 years will never become the Arabian Gulf of the past 10-15 years under the guiding hand of misguided United States regardless of what happened in the battle of the peloponesse.
