Saudi Arabia feels heat of region-wide unrest

Saudi Arabia , the literally family-based polity which seems to be still politically stable, is now believed and said to be experiencing a more acute sense of regime insecurity, as the result of the regional unrest which spreads just like wildfire in countries situated on its periphery, especially in Bahrain where a Sunni monarchy rules a Shi' ite-majority population and that is strategically located in between itself and Iran. Offcial and semi-official media in Iran has recently increased critical reports on Saudi Arabia's responses to the upheavals in Egypt as well as other Muslim-majority nations in the Middle East and North Africa.
