The story of militant group the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), and its sudden and rapid success in Iraq is extremely confusing. Politicians and security apparatuses are in disarray, and there is no clear strategy yet to confront ISIS’ expansion. But that is not the confusion I want to talk about now. I want to point to the confusion that one sees when following Saudi public opinion on ISIS. Such opinions vary to an unparalleled degree. But the effort is worth the while; as trying to make sense of the various and contradicting opinions of Saudis on ISIS is very important for a number of reasons.
Terrorists or Revolutionaries or Jihadists?
Saudis are rejecting terrorism; and our extremist clerics are quite rational and receptive to the marketing of religionAbdullah Hamidaddin
