Here’s yet another good reason not to go cycling in Saudi Arabia . . . or, better yet, not to go to Saudi Arabia, period. As we know, Islamic terrorists repeatedly targeted Americans in Saudi Arabia, whether it’s the blowing up the Khobar Towers or the kidnapping and video beheading of contractor, Paul Johnson.
This is just the latest in their barbarism against the West. And don’t forget that while the Saudi government secretly smiles upon Al-Qaeda, if the Saudis were to have free elections, the Al-Qaeda garbage would be elected to run the government there. It’s a fact that all the Scamelas in the world–who constantly shriek about “democracy” and “free elections” in the Middle East–never seem to get in their thick, ignorant skulls.
John Currie, who worked for BAE Systems – formerly British Aerospace – is believed to have been one four cyclists who started being “cut up” by local youths in two cars on a main road on the outskirts of Riyadh, the Saudi capital.
Initially, it is understood that one of the cars clipped a cyclist causing him to fall off his bike. Then, however, one of the drivers is alleged to have turned around and deliberately ploughed his car into the cyclists.
Mr Currie, 54, a human resources worker, is said to have been smashed against the vehicle’s windscreen in the incident on Thursday, and later died from his serious injuries. His widow, Pauline, was returning to Britain this weekend.
The couple, from Chester, Cheshire, are believed to have two grown-up children. Mr Currie’s body will be flown home for a funeral service.
In the past 15 years, there have been a number of terrorist attacks on British and other western nationals in Saudi Arabia by Muslim extremists. Several westerners have been killed – and even more injured – in a series of bombs and gun attacks. Radicals are angry that US and British oil companies and their staff are operating on Saudi soil.
I’m angry at them, too (but not enough to wish their brutal deaths, like this man suffered). Why are they there, risking their lives to make Saudi America-haters billions? If all Westerners spent a month away from Saudi oil sources, the Kingdom would go out of business.
As I’ve always noted, we can go a month without Saudi oil, but they cannot go a month without Western help and money. There are simply too many Saudi royals–between 35,000 and 50,000 princes and princesses, but even they cannot keep count as to the exact number–who do not work and rely on the oil money to keep flowing and keep them in designer clothes, Swiss chalets, and Cleveland Clinic medical care.
And, as reader Worry01 notes, the more Muslim immigrants we allow into America, the more “traffic accidents” like this, we’ll end up suffering on our own shores.
