Saudi Arabia and terrorism are twins

Despite the fact that Saudi Arabia was subject to terrorist attacks by al-Qaeda organization and its supporters, but Western terrorism experts blame the Kingdom for the uncontrolled Wahhabi takfiri thought that paved the way for the birth of the movements of the blind terror.

The Zionist propaganda exploited the operations carried out by the movements of the blind violence in the West to generate a suitable ground for the colonizers and the arrogant to describe the Palestinian resistance particularly and the Arab one in general as terrorist. Both Israel and the United States describe every resistance to the occupation as a terrorist, but this did not find a strong echo among the people even the Western ones.

However, after the September 11 operation, Israel found its propaganda profit and began to exploit this charge the ugliest way based on the world public opinion spread fear. Moreover, in the name of fighting terrorism the American massacres were committed in the Land of the Two Rivers after the invasion of Iraq, the U.S. massacres against the Afghan civilians after the invasion of Afghanistan, as well as the Zionist massacres against the civilians in the 2006 Lebanon war and the Gaza 2009 war.

Under the intense pressure by the families of victims of the September 2001 attacks, U.S. lawyers got classified documents related to the relation of Saudi Arabia with terrorism and the terrorists, and those documents were subject to debate among those families and their lawyers on the one hand and between the administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama on the other hand. Both administrations have refused to approve to publicize the contents of those documents after a long legal struggle that was extended over the past eight years.

The New York Times published some of the contents of those documents, which say:
The lawyers of the families of eleven victims who were killed in the attacks on New York in 2001were not able to provide documents that link terrorism to the princes of the royal family in Saudi Arabia because of the difficulties concerning the American-Saudi diplomatic relations; those documents that were obtained based on the laws of the freedom of information prove the existence of a deep Saudi support to al-Qaeda.

President Barack Obama’s administration found itself facing a complex problem between the families of the victims and the Saudis, knowing that the U.S. Justice Department ordered not to publish or provide the court with those documents that condemn Saudi officials of supporting terrorism.

The Saudis have denied in the past any link to terrorism, but the allegations that link the members of the royal family to financing terrorism found what support them in the documents that were unveiled by lawyers that are seeking to get compensation from Saudi Arabia for the benefit of the victims of the September 11 attacks.

The American newspaper attributed to those documents what it said was a confession from a former al-Qaeda leader working in Bosnia and Herzegovina who claimed that he received Saudi funds in the nineties.

Another witness from Afghanistan said under oath that he witnessed a meeting between Turki al-Faisal and a senior Taliban leader in the year 1998 during which the Saudi Prince gave the Talabani official a check for one billion Saudi riyals equivalent to two hundred and seventy-six million dollars.

The New York Times attributed to the victims of the families accessing thousands of secret documents that belong to the Commission of Inquiry in the September 11 operation, and those documents contained legal signs condemning the Saudi royal family of being involved with al-Qaeda financially.

Those U.S. allegations do not fit with what the Government of the Kingdom committed of the declared war on al-Qaeda and its followers, and do not fit with the blood that flowed between the two parties. Still, many of the major operations launched by al-Qaeda in the past fifteen years took place in Saudi Arabia and not in any other place, and also Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has been chased by the Saudis who took his Saudi citizenship off.

A senior American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh claimed that the Saudi conflict with the terrorists at home does not absolutely mean hostility with the terrorist movements abroad. Hersh points out that a meeting as he said was held between the former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and the Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan, during which the Saudi prince told Dick Cheney “It is not important that terrorism strikes and blows things up only, but what is important is where it hits and blows and against who”.
Reviewing the press reports especially the American ones regarding the events that followed the year 2001 in Iraq and Lebanon, we find that the Saudi relationship with the terrorist movements was never broken, and even that the two parties were exchanging interests as well as that great sides inside al-Qaeda and other Salafi fighting movements are receiving official Saudi support directly and are implementing official Saudi agendas directly, and this is precisely what Seymour Hersh has claimed in a previous interview with the CNN. Hersh said that U.S. policy in the Middle East has changed so that to face Iran and Syria and their “Shiite” allies at any cost even if this means supporting Sunni militants.

The key element for changing this policy was an agreement between the U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, the National Security Adviser Elliott Abrams, and the Saudi National Security Adviser Prince Bandar bin Sultan. According to the agreement, the Saudis support the Fatah al-Islam organization financially in Lebanon against the Shiite Hezbollah. Hersh points out that the situation now is very similar to the conflict in Afghanistan that took place in the eighties where al-Qaeda has emerged in the same way and was being supported by the same people and with the same form of the use of the “jihadists” by Saudi Arabia, which asserts that it can control them.

When Hersh was asked why the U.S. administration behaves in this way that seems contrary to the interests of the Americans, he replied: “Since the Israelis have been defeated in Lebanon last summer, Washington, and especially the White House, became concerned greatly because of Hezbollah”.

Hersh described the scheme of funding Fatah al-Islam as a secret scheme in which we have been engaged along with the Saudis as part of a larger and broader scheme.
The Freedom House organization wrote in a report published on its website:
The Saudi financial and logistical support for the Wahhabi movements, personalities and associations around the world contributed decisively in supporting the terrorist movements through spreading the culture of Takfir and hatred against anyone who does not believe in the Wahhabi ideology.

The Organization that see Saudi Arabia as the U.S. ally country confirmed that it relied on all the documents to accuse the Saudi regime of supporting terrorism by spreading the culture of hatred and Takfir. Those documents were issued by official Saudi sides, were distributed through the Saudi embassies abroad, were issued by religious Saudi sides appointed by the King of Saudi Arabia, and/or they were printed or distributed by religious sides or in mosques supported by the Saudi authorities.

The former American intelligence chief James Woolsey testified before the Committee of the House of International Relations in the Congress on the twenty-second of May/2002 about the Saudi relationship with supporting the Takfiri. He claimed that it came as a Saudi reaction to the triumph of the Islamic revolution in Iran in 1979 and to the uprising led by Jehmann Al-Otaibi. Hence, the Saudis resorted to Wahhabism as a safety factor for the regime to save it from the dangers formed due to the two great shocks against the regime.

Woolsey added: Ever since the years of the Cold War, we enjoyed with the Saudis a strong and comfortable alliance relationship; we were with them on the same side during the Cold War and we exchanged goods and services against the Soviet influence in the Middle East. We have always been sharing interests with them in many affairs, including oil and government contracts, but the years after 1979 brought to us profound changes in the relationship with the Saudis. In that year, the Saudi regime faced two shocks; the first was the triumph of the Khomeini revolution and the second was when the rebels occupied in the name of Islam the sacred site in Mecca.

After that troubled year, the Saudis resorted to supporting the fanatic Wahhabi movements not only at home but at the global level. They spread the culture of hatred and abhorrence all over the world in the framework of a deal between the Saudi regime and the Wahhabi extremists during which the fanatic Wahhabis were able to tighten their control over education and public life and were also greatly supported by the government to finance their activities abroad. What the CIA manager James Woolsey meant in his words about the Saudis is that their support for the fanatic Wahhabis came in return for their support for the rule and for securing its religious legitimacy and in exchange for the interior challenge, which was represented by the factual Islamic currents as well as the exterior challenge, which was represented by the triumph of the Islamic revolution in Iran that show hostility to America and Israel.

Not only some Americans accuse Saudi Arabia of supporting terrorism, but also the experts of terrorism around the world claim that the official Saudi relationship with the terrorist movements goes back to the time of the intelligence Saudi cooperation with the Americans to confront the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and is due to U.S. targets, and not because of the concern for the freedom of the oppressed peoples. At that stage, Prince Turki bin Faisal recruited young Saudis and Arabs in general to fight under the banner of jihad, where the training camps were established for the Mujahideen in Peshawar by a Saudi fund and with a practical participation by the U.S., Jordanian, and Egyptian intelligence. The Wahhabi extremist movements received at that stage signal to start the switching from the intellectual to the military operations in support of the U.S. effort against the Russians and on the pretext of supporting the Muslim Afghans. Saudi Arabia has spent for this order billions of dollars and has facilitated for everyone willing to join the training and to fight the possibility of getting what is wanted in its camps inside the Kingdom or in Pakistan on the Afghani border.

Yet, the monster created by the United States and funded by Saudi Arabia was not easily led; for the victory of Afghanistan over the Soviet made some former Arab fighters in Afghanistan aspire to turn the tables in their countries upside down. Thus, the war between al-Qaeda and Saudi Arabia started first and then between it and the Americans second, while the Saudi, American, and some Arab intelligence services maintained relations directly with breakthroughs with the leaders in Wahhabi militant organizations.
Abdul Khaliq Hussein, an Iraqi thinker and writer, described the Saudi relationship with terrorism as a two-fold face for one thing that is Wahhabism; this accusation is not accepted by many of the supporters of Saudi Arabia. However, the Iraqi writer explaining his point of view says in one of his essays: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Wahhabi movement are conjoined inseparable twins. They are the main reason for the spread of terrorism in the world, particularly in Iraq and in other Arab countries, and they are the cause of turning the Muslims against the Christians, and even against other Islamic sects that oppose Wahhabism. Though, the magic turned against the magician; Saudi Arabia is itself suffering from doctrinal terrorism now and is describing what is happening in its country as terrorism, but is at the same time encouraging it in Iraq and in other countries and is calling it jihad for the sake of Allah and Islam. It is also continuing to support it with money and with the Fatwa, and is spreading the culture of hatred and death. The Kingdom is still supporting the Wahhabi imams of mosques by inciting the young ignorant Muslims, by recruiting them, and by sending them to Iraq to kill its people.

Abdul Khaliq Hussein attributed to Alexei Alexeiv, one of the U.S. officials, as saying during the hearing before the Justice Committee of the Senate on 26 June 2003 that “Saudi Arabia has spent 87 billion dollars over the past two decades to spread Wahhabism in the world”.

The prestigious Iraqi writer adds in his claims about Saudi Arabia: The role of Saudi Arabia in supporting terrorism at the moment took a new phase and a considerable momentum with the establishment of the Al-Qaida organization that was born from the womb of Wahhabism during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and with the support of the Saudi intelligence. The (Washington Post) newspaper published a study on the role of Saudi Arabia in terrorism in Iraq, and the researcher quoted the words of Al-Watan Saudi newspaper that says “The death toll of the Saudi jihadists reached 2,000 people since 2003”. The study concludes that Saudi Arabia “Tends to encourage and support the rebels to create a state of instability in Iraq”. In fact, this reality violates the Saudi government’s claims that it is keen to achieve the stability and prosperity of Iraq.

The U.S. (Los Angeles Times) published a study on the role of Saudi Arabia in terrorism, in which it stated: Saudi Arabia was a source of funding Al-Qaeda and providing it with fighters, where 15 out of 19 of those who implemented the September 11 operation were Saudis. The article adds: “Now, the group called Al-Qaida in Iraq is the biggest threat to Iraq’s security”. The newspaper published an article by the journalist Ned Parker stating that 45% of all foreign fighters who were attacking civilians and members of the Iraqi security forces are from Saudi Arabia.
