Cradle of Wahhabism

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the cradle of Wahhabism, the extreme form of Islam that put the Saud family in power and keeps it there.
The Saudis are almost as enthusiastic about public beheading as their mortal enemy ISIS, which shocked the world with videos of Western hostages about to suffer this awful fate. 
Where do people think Isis got the idea? 
Both al-Qaeda and IS want to restore a mostly imaginary caliphate that would be, in many respects, indistinguishable from Saudi Arabia."
