Michael Moore calls for revenge on Saudi Arabia

Filmmaker, enraged that Saudis fled to safety, calls for repayment of “blood debt”.

In his new documentary, “Fahrenheit 180: The Temperature at which Arabs Burn,” Michael Moore joins Democrats calling for harsher penalties for being Arabic.

One of the charges in Moore’s movie is that, after U.S. airspace opened again, the Bush administration allowed over a hundred Saudi Arabians, including young relatives of terrorist Usama bin Laden, to leave the United States.

“At least six private jets and nearly two dozen commercial planes carried the Saudis and the bin Ladens out of the U.S. after September 13th” says Moore. “In all, 142 Saudis, including 24 members of the bin Laden family, were allowed to leave the country.”

Moore says that he was “dumbstruck” that the United States did not take Saudi visitors hostage in retaliation for the September 11 attacks. The filmmaker argues that allowing these deserving hate-crime targets to leave resulted in innocent victims dying. “Because the Republicans let Saudis leave,” said Moore, “patriotic Americans such as Frank Roque had to find other targets for their anger.”

Frank Roque shot a Sikh, not an Arab, and was convicted to a prison sentence for the crime. Moore visited Roque for an interview, standing with the convicted killer. “I am a patriot,” said Roque. “Standing up for my brothers and sisters.”

According to Moore, “Roque had to kill an Indian-American because Bush let all of the bin Laden children leave the country.”

Fahrenheit 180 also includes footage of President Bush blaming Americans for anti-Arab violence. In the footage, Bush stated that Americans who sought to “take out their anger” on Saudi high schoolers and college students “represent the worst of humankind. And they should be ashamed of that kind of behavior.”

“Fifteen of the nineteen terrorists were Saudi,” said Moore in Fahrenheit 180. “Maybe some of that anger was justified, Mr. Bush.”

Moore also showed that no serious interrogation was performed of the Saudi Arabians allowed to escape patriotic justice. Moore suggested that “a more serious interrogation might have included some of the torture techniques that were used on innocent Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib.”

While some newspaper pundits have suggested that such interrogation techniques might be inappropriate for the Saudi high school and college students whose parents feared for their safety, Moore countered that “September 11 was a blood debt to the United States. Saudi Arabia owes us blood, and it is time we collected on that debt.”
