by Daniel Greenfield
Now if we could just get the mafia to fight crime, all our problems would be solved. For now we have to settle for an anti-terrorist coalition by one of the leading countries behind terrorism.
Saudi Arabia has formed a coalition of 34 countries to fight terrorism including powerful Gulf states, Egypt and Turkey but excluding Iran, the SPA state news agency announced Tuesday.
The Saudi-led alliance will be based in Riyadh "to coordinate and support military operations to fight terrorism", the agency said, and comprises Middle Eastern, African and Asian states.
The coalition will tackle "the Islamic world's problem with terrorism and will be a partner in the worldwide fight against this scourge" said Saudi defence minister and crown prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud at a press conference in Riyadh.
Who does this wonderful anti-terrorist coalition consist of? Well... terrorists.
The full list of countries as announced is as follows: Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Turkey, Chad, Togo, Tunisia, Djibouti, Senegal, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Gabon, Guinea, Palestine, Comoros, Qatar, Ivory Coast, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, the Maldives, Mali, Malaysia, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, and Yemen.
