The Nazis said things like this 

Riddle of the day: How do you know an Arab leader is lying?

Answer: He's speaking in English. Or he's speaking in Arabic. You just never know.

Crown Prince Abdullah says one thing in English -- that Al Qaeda is behind the recent attacks on Westerners in Saudi Arabia, including the slaughter at Yanbu -- and quite another thing in Arabic:
NBC News translated Abdullah's remarks from Arabic: “Zionism is behind it. It has become clear now. It has become clear to us. I don’t say, I mean... It is not 100 percent, but 95 percent that the Zionist hands are behind what happened.”

What? Is the Crown Prince insane? Apparently not, since other senior Saudi officials agree:
Other senior Saudi officials reaffirmed the claim that supporters of Israel — Zionists — were behind the terror attacks.

Prince Nayef, the Saudi Interior Minister said, “Al-Qaida is backed by Israel and Zionism.”

Even Saddam's Information Officer breathed the same lies in all languages.

The most gratifying aspect of this whole hideous story is that NBC has finally caught on to the old "say one thing in English and the opposite thing in Arabic" trick. Yassir Arafat has been doing it and getting away with it for years, and the Israelis have been complaining about it, but until very recently we have seen essentially no effort by the mainsteam Western press to translate the Arabic speeches of the kings and other tyrants in the region.

It is amazing to me that Western journalists confer any credibility whatsoever on these fools. Why aren't Abdullah and the rest of these double-talking royalist weasels pilloried by the Western press? Why does anybody listen to a word they say?

Because Western journalists are so racist, and hold Arabs in such contempt, that they are unwilling to require that Arab leaders conform to the same standards that they demand of Western politicians. If they actually had any respect for Arabs, which they obviously don't, the Western media would call out these bastards and make them account to the world for their statements, just as they would in the case of European or American politicians.
