    This is from the Onion, right?

    After the news release gets stale, let’s see how many Saudi troops are on the ground in Syria, how many refugees are accepted by Saudi Arabia and its coalition, and how many refugees are given CITIZENSHIP. Without citizenship, the refugees are just the next Palestinians.

    I’m taking “none” in the office pool which — incidentally — is the correct answer to date.

    ISIS is simply an extension of Wahhabism, the thinking which controls Saudi Arabia, the land of whippings and beheadings. This explains why the biggest funders and supporters of ISIS come from… well, you know the answer….
