    (CNN) -- Almost half of all Saudis said in a poll conducted last year that they have a favorable view of Osama bin Laden's sermons and rhetoric, but fewer than 5 percent thought it was a good idea for bin Laden to rule the Arabian Peninsula.

    The poll involved interviews with more than 15,000 Saudis and was overseen by Nawaf Obaid, a Saudi national security consultant.

    It was conducted between August and November 2003, after simultaneous suicide attacks in May 2003 when 36 people were killed in Riyadh.

    No surprise here!

    I suspect that the ones that support Laden belong to the upper class in Saudi Arabia. The west should take control of the oil fields and let the pumps pump 24/7 at full capacity, leaving the country bankrupt.

    Screw the Saudis!
