Leaked German intelligence reports show that charities “closely connected with government offices” of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait are funding mosques, schools and imams to disseminate a fundamentalist, intolerant version of Islam throughout Germany. EFE

This week’s bombing in Manchester was another gruesome reminder that the threat from radical Islamic terrorism is ongoing. And President Trump’s journey to the Middle East illustrated yet again how the country central to the spread of this terrorism, Saudi Arabia, has managed to evade and deflect any responsibility for it.

[OP-ED]: Cómo Arabia Saudita jugó con Donald Trump

Además, el viaje del presidente Trump al Oriente Medio ilustró una vez más cómo el país central de la extensión de este terrorismo, Arabia Saudita, ha conseguido evadirse y desviarse de cualquier responsabilidad por ello. De hecho, Trump ha dado a Arabia Saudita un pase libre y una mano libre en la región.
