Turkish PM: “U.S. backing terrorists” & Saudi king bans fatwa’s against royal family

Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said the US was supporting some common enemies of Pakistan and Turkey and the time has come to unmask them and act together. Saudi ruler King Abdullah issued a royal decree allowing only the Council of Senior Islamic Scholars to issue fatwa’s which “sends a message of deterrence to clerics around the country to make them think twice before they issue a controversial statement or an inflammatory remark” Meaning the ruling dictatorship is beyond the law of the land.
