The Saudi Gazette: "You [the U.S.] Will Vanish, But We Will Remain"

Dr. Mohammad T. Al Rasheed, a columnist for the Saudi government English daily The Saudi Gazette. "In case you do not have the time or stamina, let me tell you this: we are as old as the stone that Jesus walked on, pure as the water Muhammad was given to wash for prayer from, and severe as the laws Moses brought down from the Mount. You will vanish, but we will remain? the world will advance to oblivion, but our date palms and our olive trees will survive your nuclear bombs. And, somehow, something of us will remain. You have it written, not in Holy Scripture, but on the green back you so adore, especially on Christmas Eve: In God We Trust."

We 'adore' green backs? This is coming from Arabia, right? Saudi Arabia, the only country named after its ruling family? The same Saudi Arabia that spends billions on its elite ruling family while the people live in uneducated squalor?

Thanks for your insights, Arabia ...
