About that wall...
Over at Conservative Treehouse we read that Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is outraged at GOP candidate Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall at the southern border of the US. The Prince
has called Donald Trump a disgrace to the United States following his call for a ban on Muslims entering the country, and demanded the Republican front-runner withdraw from the U.S. presidential race.
. . .
“You are a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America,” Prince Alwaleed, the chairman of Kingdom Holding, said on his Twitter account, addressing Trump and referring to the Republican Party.

Just over a week ago, IS militants launched an attack on a Saudi border post, killing a senior Saudi general and two border guards, marking the first direct IS assault on Saudi grounds, The Telegraph reported.
In an effort to defend itself from the IS threat and further attacks, the [Saudi] kingdom launched a massive project to construct a "Great Wall" along it's northern border with Iraq, where IS presence is heavy.
Proposed in 2006, the border zone entails five layers of fencing, supplemented by watch towers, radar cameras, night-vision security, and a heavy presence of extra Saudi troops, according to the report.
The wall is set to extend nearly 1000-km and will combine fence and ditch barriers along the northern Saudi border.
Riyadh hopes that the completed project will fend off IS threats and keep the relatively closed kingdom, closed indeed.
