What does this even mean? Do you consider Syrians to be white? Jordanians, Palestinians, Lebanese?

Nah, everyone non-Caucasoid = brown. White American liberals are completely unable to fathom that maybe it's not all America's fault and if we just weren't so evil and supporting those evil Israelis then the whole world would be peaceful
Attacker detonates bomb in car park of Shia mosque in Dammam, killing four people a week after suicide blast kills 21 at another mosque in east of country
In the second attack of its kind in a week, four people have died after a suicide bomber targeted a Shia mosque in Saudi Arabia’s eastern province, fuelling fears of an organised campaign by Islamic State to foment sectarian tensions inside the conservative Sunni kingdom.
Reports from Dammam described a car bomb explosion at the entrance to the al-Anoud mosque, despite security measures put in place because of last Friday’s incident near Qatif, in which 21 people were killed and 120 injured in the worst attack in Saudi Arabia in a decade
“The perpetrators of these murderous acts are driven by an insane ideology disseminated by self-appointed clerics and reformers,” commented the Jeddah-based writer Khaled Al-Maeena. “For too long, we have kept quiet as they used the mosques, the media and other forms of communication to spread their evil philosophy. We … watched silently as some imams spewed hatred and spread falsehood about Muslims of other sects. These illiterate bigots should have been advised to shut up. We should not have remained silent and passive allowing their hatred to continue giving them the opportunity to manipulate the minds of many.”]
The question is, will it change anything about KSA's policies?
Someone also needs to tell the Houthis to stop shooting at the jets: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/may/29/yemen-anti-aircraft-fire-cause-of-most-civilian-casualties-in-sanaa-report-says
"Members of Saudi Arabia’s Shia minority are forming civil defence groups after twin suicide bombings over the past two Friday."
And here's a feel-good story for Dopey:
that is an unfortunate url, it's about Iraqi Kurds embracing Zoroastrianism as a more peaceful and more Kurdish religion.
