    Saudi Arabia has called for an extraordinary summit of Muslim leaders next month to address the risks of "sedition" threatening Muslim countries.

    King Abdullah has called for "an extraordinary Islamic solidarity meeting to ensure... unity during this delicate time as the Muslim world faces dangers of fragmentation and sedition," Saudi state news agency quoted Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal as saying.

    King Abdullah wishes to convene the summit in mid-August in a bid at "unifying the ranks" of Muslims, the report said.

    No further details concerning the agenda of the meeting were presented.

    But the announcement comes amid a spike in deadly violence across Syria, where opposition activists say more than 17,000 people have been killed since an uprising erupted in March 2011 against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

    Saudi Arabia and the other energy-rich Sunni nations of the Gulf have repeatedly voiced support for Syrian rebels against the Assad government.

    In a separate statement, SPA reported that the Saudi monarch has called for launching a campaign to raise funds "in support of our brothers in Syria" starting on Monday.

    "The donations will be from all the kingdom's regions" urging all Saudis "to participate in the campaign".

    and next:

    Saudi Arabia and the other energy-rich Sunni nations of the Gulf have repeatedly voiced support for Syrian rebels against the Assad government.

    In other words, after helping US to FRAGMENT Libya, SA is calling for FRAGMENTATION of Syria in the name of MUSLIM UNITY AGAINST FRAGMENTATION of the Muslim world?????!!!!!!! :lol::lol::lol:

    Syria is composed of 90% sunni muslims.

    It's the religious duty of the gulf arabs to back their sunni brothers and sisters in their quest for freedom from Assad and his alwite thugs. :cool:

    what about freedom from the King of S.A.? That country is one of the most backward on the planet. If they didn't have oil under their feet, the U.S. gov't wouldn't have been bending-over backwards to appease their every want.
    ANOTHER reason to get off our addiction to oil. Thanks conservatives :fu:

    The people of Saudia Arabia seem to be very happy with their government.

    Do you even know anyone from S.A. ?

    I am personal friends with quite a few.

    They love their country and like their King.

    It's people from the West that have a problem; not the Saudi citizens. :cool:

    If memory serves me well, in 2006 US and Israel agreed to re-drawing the map of the ME. On that map SA is carved onto few pieces. SA knows it, but is attempting to play its own game.

    "Arab Spring" which started along the same lines as any other "coloured revolution" organised by the West, left the West somewhat startled. Is it possible that the West was used by some other force that is not in a hurry to reveal itself?

    Yes, destabilisation of the world, including Arab world, and redrawing of the borders is the goal of the global power elite associated first of all with the US; but it looks as if someone else is steering its efforts.

    The only country that was formed on a doctrine of Wahabism is Saudi Arabia -- one of the richest countries in the world, yet in military sense -- one of the weakest. The US faithful "tail"... And yet, are Saudits, familiar with the Pentagon map of "New Midle East" acting preemptively; is it a coincidence that for the last few decades US/West European interferrence in other countries results precisely in the rise of militant Islam in the affected countries? In the centre of Europe we now have an Islamic state -- Kosovo where Al-Q was fighting alongside NATO against Serbs; in Libya NATO was fighting effectively on behalf of Senussi and Al-Q; in Russia US/UK support for Chechen Islamists resulted in the rise of Wahabism...

    Iran which is a center of US attentions is also Saudit's main enemy in the region alongside Israel. If the US/Israel are dithering over attacking Iran directly, it can be drawn into the war by attack on Syria. And the US/UK efforts in setting up Libyan scenario in Syria is already in progress...
