We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Saudi "Anti-Terror Coalition" a Facade to Hide Yet More Terrorism

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from New Eastern Outlook.
Likely what Saudi Arabia is doing, is attempting to reboot a narrative that, as of late, is increasingly implicating it and many of the members of its "coalition" as the very source of global terrorism. 
It appears to me that the Saudi medieval leaders have learned from their US and Zionist advisers how to deceive people with facades and false-flag operations. Although Saudi Arabia still uses an ancient method of executing people for petty crimes, their official statements look very similar to those typical of Empire officials. For example, look at the CNN quote from a Saudi leader:
“This announcement comes from the Islamic world’s vigilance in fighting this disease so it can be a partner, as a group of countries, in the fight against this disease,” Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman said.
Asked whether the new coalition could include ground forces, Saudi Arabia’s top diplomat told reporters in Paris on Tuesday that “nothing is off the table.”
Cartalucci provides material from the Empire's euphemistically named "Department of Defense" which actually acknowledges the reality behind the deceptive facade constructed by Saudi leaders. But don't worry, our media will never report this. So, clearly it never happened. (sarcasm)
