Q&A: What is happening in Saudi Arabia and what is America’s stance?
On 19/11/2017, Al-Mudun website revealed that the ongoing anti-corruption campaign in Saudi Arabia has begun to affect the military service. (A Saudi official, familiar with the anti-corruption campaign in Saudi Arabia, revealed the arrest of 14 retired officers who worked in the Ministry of Defense, and two officers of the National Guard, on suspicion of involvement in corruption cases of financial contracts.) (Al-Mudun: 19/11/2017), and the arrests began since 4/11/2017 where King Salman bin Abdul Aziz formed an anti-corruption committee under the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, including dozens of former ministers and business leaders and the freezing of their accounts and accounts of those close to them, (Reuters agency quoted – The investigation committee into corruption has frozen the bank balance of Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the isolated crown prince and one of the most prominent members of the ruling Saudi family, and the balance of his close family members. Bin Nayef was the former crown prince before the king replaced him with his son Muhammad bin Salman, and the committee arrested 11 emirs…) (BBC Arabic, 8/11/2017). What is going on in Saudi Arabia? Where does America stand regarding it?
For the answer to be clear we will give a brief about the Saud family and their associations and then move on to the answer:
1- Al-Saud (Saud family) have been associated with the colonial kaffir since their first rebellion against the Ottoman State as an Islamic state. They attacked and incited with the help of the English colonialists against Kuwait in 1788, Mecca and Medina in 1803-1804 and conquered these lands. They attacked Damascus in 1810, and its residents defended it bravely, but they controlled Aleppo and other cities. They exploited the Wahhabi school of thought in their work, and the English used them to strike the Islamic state. But later, the Islamic state managed to eliminate the rebellion led by Al Saud in 1818, by the governor of Egypt, Muhammad Ali. They were driven by Britain again since the end of the 19th century, in 1891, but the Ottoman State overcame them. Britain moved them again in 1901, and their contact with the British and British support were exposed. The British exploited the weakness of the Ottoman State and its entry into the First World War in order to strengthen the position of the Saud family against the people of Najd and Hijaz who fought long wars against them until the Sauds were able to overcome them and take control of these areas and then declare their kingdom in 1932 with the help of Britain, the number one state at that era.
But after the Americans discovered oil in the country and drooled over their wealth, they began to seek political influence in the country. This was evidenced by the gain of members of the royal family, especially among the heirs of the throne of the sons of Abdul Aziz, the founding king after his death in 1953. Thus, the Anglo-American conflict began in the country.
2- Now the American agent Salman managed to take control, and began a process of liquidation for the agents of the English and those who follow them. His predecessor, the former King Abdallah, was associated with the English, and tried to concentrate the English agents in power before his death, but the family tradition of taking office forced him to appoint Salman bin Abdul Aziz as crown prince and to maintain stability in the ruling family. He knew that his brother is an agent of the Americans; therefore, he introduced the position of the heir to heir of the throne to ensure the influence of the English, and he appointed his brother and his counterpart in being agent of the British, Muqrin bin Abdul Aziz, in this post, as if he has foreseen that Salman is old and sick which will allow Muqrin to be in control until the death of Salman and then Muqrin takes the rule smoothly, as happened when Fahd was old and ill, and he, i.e. Abdullah became then the crown prince and in control, and when Fahd died in 2005, Abdullah took over the power. But what happened after the death of Abdullah in the beginning of 2015 and Salman’s taking over of the reins of power was not in the calculation of Abdullah; Salman dismissed “Muqrin” from his post and appointed Muhammed bin Nayef as Crown Prince and his son, Muhammed, as deputy Crown Prince, and he dismissed many of those whom were appointed by Abdullah in sensitive positions, and he began to strengthen the authority of his son, Muhammad, until on 21/6/2017 he removed Muhammed bin Nayef from his post and declared his son as Crown Prince and did not appoint anyone as deputy Crown Prince.
3- We mentioned in the answer to a question on 25/1/2015 after Salman took power after the death of King Abdullah the following: The current King, Salman, is from the defense establishment, and therefore, it is expected that the American influence is predominant in his reign, Abdullah realised this, and for this reason he invented a new tradition in Saudi Arabia, namely, that the king appoints not only his crown prince but also a deputy crown prince. He realizes that Salman bin Abd Al-Aziz follows America, and unlike the common traditions that the King appoints his Crown Prince, King Abdullah appointed a deputy Crown Prince to cut the road between the new King and appointing a Crown Prince from the American agents. So, the former King, Abdullah, appointed in advance a deputy Crown Prince; appointed Muqrin a Crown Prince to Salman bin Abdul Aziz for the purpose we mentioned). In the answer to the same question, we mentioned: Muqrin is known for his relations with the English. He studied there and graduated from the famous Cranwell School in Britain. He was trusted by the former King Abdullah, and even was from his close associates. In order to interrupt the continuity of the American chain after Salman bin Abdul Aziz, the former king invented the post of deputy crown prince. King Abdullah has confirmed this appointment by issuing a decree prohibiting the removal of deputy Crown Prince). But the English calculations were inaccurate because Salman violated the covenant and the law and custom, and removed Muqrin and appointed Muhammed bin Nayef temporarily and then isolated him to make his son, Muhammed, the Crown Prince and grant him various important powers and positions until he becomes alone in authority.
4- Soon after King Salman announced the formation of a higher anti-corruption committee on 4/11/2017 under the chairmanship of his son, Muhammad, the Crown Prince, the security forces arrested 11 emirs and four current ministers and immediately dismissed them from office, indicating that this is not normal and has nothing to do with fighting corruption, but is similar to what happens in a coup d’état, where arrests are made and dismissals and charges are made immediately. Also, the arrests included dozens of former ministers and business leaders and the freezing of their accounts and accounts of those close to them took place, this included the freezing of more than 1,700 bank accounts, which “is rising every hour” (Reuters). And from those whom their bank accounts were frozen was Muhammad bin Nayef’s account, who was dismissed from the post of crown prince recently, as well as the accounts of a number of members of his close family. The agency reported, “The Saudi authorities said it had detained more suspected, for committing violations, who are members of the royal family and businessmen also included managers and officials from the lower levels.” Which confirms that the process is similar to what takes place in a coup. The campaign was extended to include the children of the former king; the Minister of National Guard, Meteb bin Abdullah (also spelled Miteb/Mutaib), the second major force alongside the army, and his brother Turki bin Abdullah, the former emir of Riyadh.
And Metab bin Abdullah graduated from Royal Military Academy Sandhurst the British military academy with lieutenant rank and usually only British agents train and graduate from it, and he is preceded by many of the princes of the Gulf and the kings and princes of Jordan. His brother Turki bin Abdullah holds a master’s degree in military and strategic sciences from the British University of Wales. He was sacked by Salman after he took office as Emir of Riyadh. It appears that America has found a way to liquidate the British agents through the corruption charges. So, it instructed Salman and his son, Muhammad, to adopt a method to do so, as many regimes do now to liquidate opponents by accusing them of corruption, especially since all the rulers in these former and subsequent regimes are stained with corruption, bribery, public funds theft, favouritism to those close to them and projects that violate the law, taking away the rights of others, injustice to the public and the exploitation of their positions to achieve what they and those in their circle like, and what is a greater corruption than not following Allah‘s law and following the laws of the colonial kaffir countries?
5- We have seen America’s support for this campaign and for those who carried it out. The President of the United States tweeted on Twitter on 6/11/2017, saying: “I have great confidence in King Salman and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, they know exactly what they are doing”, he followed it by another tweet: ‘‘Some of those they are harshly treating have been ‘milking‘ their country for years.”The Saudi Press Agency said that “the King held on Sunday 5/11/2017 a telephone conversation with the US President in the midst of political and security events in the Kingdom, and discussed the cooperation between the two countries in various fields and ways to develop them. “Trump talked to the Saudi king about the listing of Saudi Aramco in New York and would be grateful if Riyadh put the company’s shares on the New York Stock Exchange. The king replied that they would study the use of US stock exchanges,” Reuters reported on 4/11/2017. “We continue to encourage Saudi authorities to pursue the prosecution of people they believe to have been corrupt officials; and we expect them to do it in a fair and transparent manner,” US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert was quoted by Reuters news agency on 7/11/2017. This shows that America stands behind the campaign and supports it and directs it towards the undesirable individuals by America or thos whom it suspects their loyalty to America or are agents of Britain or are dissatisfied with what is going on and what the King and his son the Crown Prince are doing of the fast sale of the country to the Americans.
6- What confirms that the campaign is exclusively political is that the Committee immediately began its work of arrests and freezing of accounts of important figures in the system, and members of the family and relatives of the King… Therefore, it is purely political, and has nothing to do with corruption and reforms, especially since Salman and his son are also submerged in corruption and wasting of public funds, including the grant given to America of 460 billion dollars. The tone of the statement which was broadcasted by the Saudi Press Agency was severe as if aiming to hit influential forces opposed to the system; it was stated in the statement, “The formation of the Committee was due to the existence of exploitation by some of the weak souls who prioritised their own interests over the public interest, and stole public money without a deterrent of religion conscience, morals or nationalism. Taking advantage of their influence and authority entrusted to them in the manipulation of money and its use and embezzlement, taking various ways to hide their shameful actions. And then the arrests were accelerated immediately after the formation of the Committee on 4/11/2017.
7- Then after that on 5/11/2017 specifically, it is announced that the Deputy Governor of Asir, Mansur bin Muqrin, along with some officials were killed in a helicopter crash accident, and there are suspicions that surround this kind of liquidation. Especially since this prince is the son of Muqrin, the former crown prince who was dismissed by Salman after he took power directly. The number of detainees has exceeded hundreds. Sa’ud Al-Mu‘jab, the Saudi attorney general, said: “208 people have been summoned for interrogation in connection with corruption investigations, Seven of them have been released for lack of sufficient evidence… The financial value of these decades- long practices has included large sums of misappropriated and misused public funds and the potential value of these amounts may exceed US $100 billion, according to what materalised from the initial investigation“ (Al-Hayat, 9/11/2017) The inspection is conducted for decades in the papers of members of the royal family and influential in the ruling, which indicates that the issue is the liquidation of power and influence on the ruling that could turn the table on the Crown Prince bin Salman if he does not carry out special liquidation to conduct unusual changes to the system and to the society in the country, on top of the fact that he has assumed the post as crown prince when he is not entitled to take it in accordance with family tradition…
8- Thus, what is happening in Saudi Arabia under the so-called anti-corruption campaign is to cut off the English and prevent them from plotting a coup attempt or, otherwise, against King Salman and his son the Crown Prince, as well as to achieve a safe transfer of power to the Crown Prince so that no one will oppose him. Since this son has taken upon himself to serve the interests of America without an internal dispute even if it his closet relative! And all external opponents, especially Britain, to keep the influence on the island exclusively for America… Thus, treason is indivisible
وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي كَيْدَ الْخَائِنِينَ
“and that Allah does not guide the plan of betrayers” [Yusuf: 52].
9- Finally, with every passing day it is confirmed that there is no good in all these regimes: neither in the regime of the Saud family nor in the Iranian regime nor in any of the existing regimes in the Muslim countries nor in those who follow them and follow their orders. They are directed by the colonizing Kaffir who works to perpetuate its domination over us and plunder our wealth by that hegemony. Thus, it must be one of the first priorities of the work is the change of the legitimate face of these regimes, which incline to the Kaffir colonizer.
وَلَا تَرْكَنُوا إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ ثُمَّ لَا تُنْصَرُونَ
“And do not incline toward those who do wrong, lest you be touched by the Fire, and you would not have other than Allah any protectors; then you would not be helped” [Hud: 113].
Then we get rid of all this rot and corruption by corrupting the colonial countries, whether America or Britain or others, for Kufr is one in its hostility to Islam and Muslims… And all those who followed these countries or allied with them directly or indirectly and implemented their plans and projects and maintained their secular systems are criminals and will be punished with shame.
سَيُصِيبُ الَّذِينَ أَجْرَمُوا صَغَارٌ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَعَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَمْكُرُونَ
“There will afflict those who committed crimes debasement before Allah and severe punishment for what they used to conspire”[Al-An’am: 124].
This is the solution to our problems and there is no other solution: the overthrowing of these regimes and the establishment of the righteous Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood… even if rejected by the doubters and seen as difficult by the complacent, but sincerity to Allah (swt) in the work and the truth to the Prophet’s example ﷺ will make what is far come soon with his permission (swt),
وَيَقُولُونَ مَتَى هُوَ قُلْ عَسَى أَنْ يَكُونَ قَرِيبًا
“Then they will nod their heads toward you and say, “When is that?” Say, “Perhaps it will be soon” [Al-Isra’: 51]
Then Allah’s promise will be fulfilled.
وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ * بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ
“And that day the believers will rejoice * In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful” [Ar-Rum: 4-5]
