More "Peaceful" Terror Attacks -- Today In Saudi Arabia

Three bombs were detonated in Saudi Arabia today.  One was near the US embassy in the capital city.  One was outside a Shia mosque in Qatif.  The last one was adjacent to the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina.  That last site is a Sunni mosque and it is also the burial place of the prophet Mohammed, a very sacred site for Islam.

It's unclear which of the many peaceful groups of terrorists are promoting their version of the religion of peace with these attacks.  Most likely, it is ISIS, but it could also be al Qaeda or even some other group.

It is worth noting that the Saudis have very stringent gun laws and yet they still somehow had terrorist attacks across their country.  They also have a very strong security force in the country, but the terrorists managed to get close to their targets.
