The prince must have known who he was dealing with.
Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal attacked Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump Friday for proposing a temporary ban on taking in Muslim refugees.
And he used Trump’s favorite medium to do it — Twitter.
The prince tweeted:
.@realDonaldTrump You are a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America. Withdraw from the U.S presidential race as you will never win.
— الوليد بن طلال (@Alwaleed_Talal) December 11, 2015
Two days later Trump fired back with this embarrassing rejoinder:
“@Michael2014abc: @Alwaleed_Talal @realDonaldTrump Has your country, Saudi Arabia, taken ANY of the Syrian refugees? If not, why not?” — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 13, 2015
And Trump’s correct. It turns out that the five wealthiest Persian Gulf nations have refused to accept Syrian refugees — for security concerns, the very reason Trump is calling for a temporary halt.
Breitbart News reported:
Yet amidst cries for Europe to do more, it has transpired that of the five wealthiest countries on the Arabian Peninsula, that is, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain, not one has taken in a single refugee from Syria. Instead, they have argued that accepting large numbers of Syrians is a threat to their safety, as terrorists could be hiding within an influx of people. Sherif Elsayid-Ali, Amnesty International’s Head of Refugee and Migrants’ Rights, has slammed their inaction as “shameful”.
Breitbart-London Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam tweeted his disgust:
Extraordinary failure to act by Arab countries. Everyone should know. Hat-tip @CBCNews and @NatashaFatah pic.twitter.com/a0OW32cgjP

People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, as the saying goes. Because of the Saudi’s refusal to accept Syrian refugees, Prince bin Talal lives in a huge glass house.
