‘Pray for the crown prince’: Michele Bachmann and other end-times evangelicals turn up in Saudi Arabia

A group of U.S. evangelicals, including former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), held a rare meeting Thursday with Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammed bin Salman at his palace.

The delegation to Riyadh was led by Bachmann and communications strategist Joel Rosenberg, who are each known for pushing an apocalyptic worldview relating to events in the Middle East, and the heads of other Israel-tied evangelical organizations, reported Al Jazeera.

“We’re under no illusions about the challenges that are in Saudi Arabia and that remain,” Rosenberg said. “But I think it’s respectful to go and listen to leaders who have the opportunity to make life better for Christians and Muslims and potentially for Israel as well and who are against the crazies in Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“I’d ask people to pray,” he added. “Pray for the (Jordanian) king, pray for the crown prince, pray for the people of Saudi Arabia — and I think it’s the right thing to do.”

The unusual visit came a day short of the one-month anniversary of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance while visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My dear Ms. Bachmann and Mr. Rosenberg; in this most-likely Trump-mandated PR stunt has all the optics...as that of putting lipstick on a pig.

The US government is complicit with Saudi Arabia's war crimes in Yemen, in slaughtering infants, children, and the medically fragile elderly with their air strikes. The US is assisting Saudi Arabia in blockading Yemeni ports, so no food can get in, and the deaths from malnutrition, present and future, will cost Yemen tens of thousands more of their children. Additionally, the US has assisted Saudi Arabia in the destruction of Yemeni water infrastructure, and cholera (possibly weaponised, as the US government did during World War II) runs rampant in Yemen now.

And Mr. Rosenberg, when you made that statement that "I think it’s respectful to go and listen to leaders who have the opportunity to make life better for Christians and Muslims and potentially for Israel as well...", did you not realize that conversion to Christianity in Saudi Arabia can get you executed for apostasy?!?

It scares me, Mr. Rosenberg, that you have the ear of President Trump, and yet you would make a statement like this in public.

Christianity in Saudi Arabia

And please don't even think about having the hubris to lecture the world about the "Crazies" in Iran or the Muslim Brotherhood.

Iran appears to be doing everything it can to prevent war, while Prince Bin Salman does everything to continue this horrific, 3 year-on war in Yemen, which can only be resolved at in a geopolitical, not military, manner.
