Financial aid from Saudi Arabia invariably consists of funding for vast mosques and madrasas only so that these nutters can spread their intolerant wahabbi faith in every corner of the world. There will be no funding available for hospitals, universities, libraries, roads or airports but there will be unlimited funds available for the largest mosque in the world and the largest madrasa in the universe. So expect to receive funding for the King Salman mosque and the MBS madrasa for wahabbi studies. Let me remind you lemons that 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists were Saudi nationals.


We need funding from India to build largest temple in male city and hulhumale. Hopefully our Maldivian agent Ahmed Nasheed alias ramakuttan will help on this effort. Thank you Nasheed for breaking the neck of Islam in this region
