The Saudi foreign minister appears to be blaming foreigners for the unrest in Saudi Arabia—and his message on outside interference is this: "We will cut any finger that crosses into the kingdom."

The foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, also condemned the protests, saying "The principle of dialogue, I believe, is the best way to address the issues facing society," according to the Dubai based Al Arabiya television network.

To buttress his argument, Prince Faisal cited Muslim clerics: "The called-for reform does not come via protests and (the clerics) have forbidden protests since they violate the Koran and the way of the Prophet."
