A message from Riyadh

Had this interesting message concerning the lack of security attending the recent Riyadh attacks passed on to me from my sister’s current boyfriend. The quoted message was written by his brother, who has been living in Saudi for several years. No comment, just thought it might be of interest.

Interesting, thanks for sharing. I had a conversation with a friend who lives in Jeddah yesterday (he’s Jordanian of Palestinian extract) and he really couldn’t convey much hope. I think that given his background he’s somewhat conflicted on the whole thing, eg, not condoning violence but possibly sympathising with the cause. It’s a strange position to be in, when you know someone you are talking to might not be so sincere in their condolences.
