Are Saudi Arabia’s Chickens coming Home to Roost? Oil Selling Below $40 a Barrel Forcing Saudi Kingdom to Cut Benefits as More Awareness comes forth Regarding their Role in Spreading Terrorism
The world is watching as Iran and Saudi Arabia continue to distance themselves further and further. In a dialogue between CBN’s George Thomas and Terrorism Analyst, Erick Stakelbeck, they dialogue about the growing concern that Saudi Arabia plays in the existence of terrorism. When taking into consideration the reports of Saudi Araba fighting against ISIS, one may perceive that the ideologies of the two differ. According to Stakelbeck, this is not true, “If you look at it, they believe the same things: jihad, death to the infidel, death to the Jews, and Christians are inferior, women are inferior, etc. They believe the same things; it’s just that ISIS and al-Qaeda are actually acting on those beliefs right now in a violent, very real way.”
As Saudi Arabia has continued to be a world supplier of oil, there is an interesting contradiction considering the reality of Saudi fighting against ISIS, while also reportedly supplying oil to them. Ironically enough, Stakelbeck shares how America ties into this as well, “Since World War II, since the days of F.D.R. we’ve had very deep relationships, especially on the economic end with the Saudi royal family.”
As the cost of a single barrel of oil is continuing to plummet, the exposure of Saudi’s possible involvement comes as an additional economic strain. Because of the tumbling oil prices, the government of Saudi Arabia is retracting government subsidies. Could this be a spark to an Arab Spring within Saudi Arabia?

58 Facts Regarding the Economy in 2015?
It’s not a difficult truth to grapple with or understand that 2015 was a difficult year economically in America. By looking at some specific statistics released by Charisma News, it just may be worse than some may have perceived. For a long time in America’s history, The Middle Class, has made up the majority of its citizens. In today’s culture, this is no longer a reality. One may gather that the incomprehensible debt that the current administration has incurred has spread over to the amount of debt that average American family is currently carrying. Just a few of the staggering realities are:
“At this point 62 percent of all Americans have less than 1,000 dollars in their savings accounts, and 21 percent of all Americans do not have a savings account at all.”
“It has been estimated that 43 percent of all American households spend more money than they make each month.”
“There are still 900,000 fewer middle class jobs in America than there was when the last recession began, but our population has gotten significantly larger since that time.”
“According to the Social Security Administration, 51 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year.”
“A recent nationwide survey discovered that 48 percent of all U.S. adults under the age of 30 believe that “the American Dream is dead”.
Regardless of how the economies of the world are faring, we must be concerned and focused on the economy of the Kingdom. Regardless of what is happening in the world, God’s Kingdom will thrive. When the world’s economy DOES crash, you can make the right decisions today to know whether you are focused on the economies of the world, or the economy of the Kingdom of God, and so much more.
