Fahd bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud, 1923-2005

Reports from Saudi Arabia say that King Fahd has died. The reports quote hospital officials and sources close to the royal family, and Saudi TV interrupted regular programmes with Koran readings.
With the death of its leader, I guess the House of Saud will have no choice but to embrace democratic reforms, tone down the Wahhabi rhetoric, stop funding Palestinian terrorists, and push the literacy rate above 80%. Riiiiiiight.
