My heart goes out to the people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, I know how they all loved him and felt like he was a second father to them. The loss shall be felt all over this region.

lets not forget his bright side.. his role in bringing peace and modrenization to saudi society..albeit he was held much back from achiving his dreams due to few radicles and fundamentalists in saudi society!!

My heart goes out to the people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, I know how they all loved him and felt like he was a second father to them. The loss shall be felt all over this region.
True a second father indeed he was, although it was well known that he was gravely sick and there were rumor in the past of his death. It still comes as a shock .In the world of governments his was very different. Although I never knew him in person (my father meet him) .He said fahad was the most charismatic person who we knew. Its sad day I woke up today with full of energy but then I simply felt lost as if something is missing. Although I have nothing to loose or to gain but I guess its his simplicity, niceness and compassion which me and others miss greatly on this day. Again my deepest sorrow for his family and his people as we grief your loss. I the world of chaos he brought calm !

I heard that since the Saudi Arabians don't get to vote for his successor, they have painted all their middle fingers purple. Is this true?

Wait a minute ya habibi, I was never against democracy in its ideal form. I am not going to go along the democracy that's based on the agenda of the few and powerful.

Is their some thing like a democratic country? I mean democracy in the real scene.

Btw I went to his zanaza prayer it was unlike any other gathering I have witnessed there was a scene of some thing missing but their was a warmth in the atmosphere
