Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has accused Britain of not doing enough to fight international terrorism, which he says could take 20 or 30 years to beat.
He was speaking in a BBC interview ahead of a state visit to the UK - the first by a Saudi monarch for 20 years.
He also said Britain failed to act on information passed by the Saudis which might have averted terrorist attacks. --from this news item
By this "failure" King Abdullah means two things:
He means that Saudis opposed to the Al-Saud family and its courtiers are allowed to live in Great Britain and have not been returned to Saudi Arabia for "re-education" or sent elsewhere in the Middle East where it may be harder to conduct their campaigns of propaganda.
And he also means that by failing to give the Arabs what they want elsewhere, by not agreeing to completely throw Israel to the wolves, Great Britain is not doing what it should to "fight international terrorism."
He does not mean that the political elite in Great Britain has not sufficiently studied Qur'an, Hadith, and Sira. He does not mean that the British have admitted too many Muslims into their midst. He does not mean that they have failed to tell him to stop funding mosques and madrasas and Western hirelings all over the Infidel lands. He means: give us what we, the Arab Muslims, demand so that the "appeal" of "terrorism" will diminish (and somehow the doctrine of jihad, that has no sell-by date, will disappear at the same time), and furthermore, give us, the Saudi ruling family, all those who currently operate and plot against us from their flats off the Edgeware Road.
