Orlov: It’s the Saudis, Stupid!

Orlov: It’s the Saudis, Stupid! thumbnail

[Just nine days after I pointed out that Obama’s latest “humanitarian” bombing puts American lives in danger, we have the video of the journalist James Foley’s beheading at the hands of Daash, a.k.a. Islamic Caliphate, a.k.a. ISIS/ISIL. Well, that didn’t take long! But there is more to the story: what stands behind this event, and others, such as 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Benghazi massacre and numerous other acts of terror is none other than America’s best friend, the House of Saud. Here is a post by my friend Idris to explain this vital connection.]

The recent rise of the Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq, along with its bedfellow Jahbat Al-Nusra (JN) is being viewed with alarm worldwide. It is the latest in a series of problems related to Islamic extremism for which Al Qaeda is the poster child. From Somalia to Yemen to Nigeria to the Levant to Afghanistan and Pakistan, to Chechnya to Xinjiang, China and even raising its head among the populations of western countries, both Muslim and non-Muslim are facing the ravages of the Salafi/Takfiri Nexus of Jihad.

However, there has been a failure to focus on the primary cause of these problems with their various manifestations worldwide. Saudi Arabia, with able assistance from several of its Gulf neighbors (with Qatar as the most prominent) has steadfastly promoted the rise of Islamic extremism. The extreme behavior now being manifested is the result of the extremist Wahhabi ideology that Saudi Arabia promotes and the billions of dollars it has spent to influence the entire Muslim world to adopt its extremist ideology or at least to remain silent as its poison spreads, particularly among the youth.

Saudi Arabia has for decades given scholarships to universities in the kingdom devoted to indoctrinating future Muslim leaders. It has funded Masjids, schools and Islamic Centers which have promoted their vitriol and which are usually staffed by graduates of their institutions. They have thus prepared the ground for what we are seeing now, as young Muslims from around the world flock to the Levant to wage Jihad under the banner of the various groups that the Saudis have long nurtured.

The Saudis and their Gulf co-conspirators have not limited themselves to promoting their hateful ideology. They have provided billions in material support for Muslims worldwide willing to take extremist action in accordance with Salafi/Takfiri principles. Any Muslim group worldwide willing to take violent actions that accord with this extreme Salafi/Takfiri worldview finds it easy to tap into the Saudi/Arab Gulf international network to receive funding and other forms of tangible support to launch their violent campaigns.

So next time you hear that Boko Haram or the Taliban or Abu Sayyaf or ISIL or some other Al Qaeda type organization has perpetrated some atrocity in the name of Islam… be sure to thank the Saudis! Its not that there are no just causes for which Muslims may feel compelled to resort to violent resistance… rather it is that Wahhabi ideology, propelled by billions of Petrodollars, has perverted nearly every corner of the Muslim world with its fanaticism.

The US, along with some its major allies, plays along with this travesty for several reasons. Most prominently, billions of Petrodollars recycled through their economies provide them with an exorbitant economic advantage. Secondly, they enjoy the ability to use crazy Jihadis against their enemies du jour. Want to push Russia out of Afghanistan? Send in the Jihadis. Want to topple Assad? Send in the Jihadis. Need to overthrow Gaddafi? Send in the Jihadis. Need to keep Somalia from developing its 100 billion barrels of oil and bringing down the price of oil to levels that would make US fracking uneconomical? Send in the (Ash-Shabab) Jihadis. Need to prevent Russian oil reaching the Caspian via Chechnya and Daghestan? Well you get the idea.

First they spend years priming Muslim groups with the backward, nihilistic Wahhabi ideology. Then, when frustration with their inability to achieve success (as a result of their backward, nihilistic ideology) makes these groups ready to take radical action, in come the suppliers of cash, arms, training and logistic support to make their dreams of Jihad a reality. Its a tried and tested formula that will continue to work until people realize that…

Its the Saudis, stupid!

Of course there are mischievous machinations on the part of imperial and former colonial powers to subjugate the Muslim world and in particular the hydrocarbon-rich Middle East. But both Muslims and non-Muslims need to realize that none of what we are seeing today would have been possible without the corrupting influence of Saudi and Gulf Arab sponsored Wahhabism/Salafism/Takfirism. Muslims in particular need to stop ignoring the dagger aimed at the heart of their religion by these sponsors of fanaticism. They must stop accepting their money, their books and their scholarships. It’s all a poison pill!

Nor should the disguise of modernity used by those like the Qataris, who so strongly backed Morsi in Egypt, be allowed to hide their nefarious behavior. They are simply Wahhabis in suits. Just a week before Morsi was deposed, he publicly called on Egyptian youths to join the Takfiri Jihad in Syria. Muslims need to reclaim their true heritage from these usurpers.

On the other hand, Westerners should demand that their governments stop playing with fire by employing Islamic “beserkers” to do their dirty work. The blowback from their governments’ complicity with the Saudis has been extensive and includes highlights like 9/11, the Chechen Boston Marathon bombing, the consulate killings in Benghazi and the recent beheading of James Foley. Now with an entire well-armed and richly funded state spanning the borders of Syria and Iraq at their disposal and recruits flocking to their cause from all over the world, we can expect even more poisonous fruit from this tree planted and nourished by the Saudis and their helpers.

The first step to solving a problem is identifying its nature. Hence the importance of understanding the essential role that Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies have played in creating the world’s number one security problem. Thus far the Saudis, Qataris and their other Gulf Arab allies have managed to obscure the centrality of their role in spawning Al-Qaeda, ISIS/IS and their like. This needs to end!

Some people speculate that the ISIS/IS Frankenstein that they birthed may yet consume the Saudi Kingdom itself, but that would be little comfort to a world forced to deal with the furies that they have unleashed.

    Do me favor Dmitry, will you? Retire!

    Bush is kissing the wrong end. But he is no better than the Saudis. The whole Bush clan is down and dirty.

    herrmeir, maybe you don’t like facts? Just pretend that the world is the way you think it is and ignore reality.

    Why did I read this?
    When the oil is gone their population will be 10% of what it is now.

    Somebody needs to take out Pakistan’s nukes before that, though. Hungry angry jihadists with nukes? God help us.

    Planta bullshit and call it genet.

    Who are the Saudis feeding all that oil so they have the money to pursue their ends?

  7. Speculawyer on Tue, 26th Aug 2014 2:22 pm 

    Orlov has gone off the deep end into conspiracy theory territory. And sadly, he’s got a blind spot that is ethnically based . . . he’ll excuse various Russian flaws and instead hammers on other ethnic groups & races. :-/

    The Bush White House was all oil industry insiders. The Bush family drilled in Texas, tried to make Dubya work in the oil fields to toughen him up after being a cheerleader in college. Bush41 ran the CIA with all its middle east intrigues. Condi Rice was on the board of Chevron, had a tanker named for her. Cheney is Halliburton.

    The Bush family has extensive business ties with the Saudis, who finance business projects for any idiot Bush nephew.

    9-11 was a go big or go home move of never before seen proportions. The US couldn’t possibly have done such a thing to itself – or could it?

    You thought 2 towers went down? Check again. The official inquiry didn’t want to find the truth. Check out if you have the stomach to handle it.

    By now so much evidence has stacked up against the official story that it’s game over for it. It defies physics. It’s obvious that the lower parts of the towers were not hurt and would have stood just fine regardless of what was going on above.

    The planes were just a cover story. And why weren’t there 1000 relatives in the streets demanding answers the day after? Maybe because there were no planes that flew into the towers. And how could a passport have been recovered?

    If the floors had collapsed like a pancake how tall would that stack have been? 110 floors stacked up. Just how tall would such a stack be? Now *think for yourself* what kind of energy it took to pulverize those structures, and it becomes obvious that such energy could not have come from a combination of burning jet fuel + kinetic energy.

    Wouldn’t the collapse have slowed at least a little as it entered thicker and thicker internal steel structures?

    Wouldn’t there be massive discussions among architects how to design sky scrapers that don’t collapse due to fires?

    Or beef up the exterior a little so that 2mm titanium doesn’t slice through them so easily?

    Why all the hate against Orlov here? He’s oversimplifying, of course, but he’s basically calling a duck a duck. The Saudis *are* behind much of the extremist Wabbi terrorism, and 15 of othe 19 9-11 hijackers were Saudis. Bin Laden was also from one of the most prominent Saudi families. Is this really news?

  11. Makati1 on Tue, 26th Aug 2014 9:39 pm 

    Harm, you are correct. Orlov is more real than 99.999% of the stuff you see on the internet or in the MSM. Some have the old Cold War mindset propaganda to clear out of their minds so they can see the realities of today’s world. Russians are now the good guys and the USSA are the bad guys, along with the Saud family and the rabid Israel. But, some will never see that because they want to live in their pretend world and ignore the coming war, started by the warmongering DC Mafia and friends.

    J You are right; the story that the MSM is feeding us about 9/11 defies physics. But I’m still quite uncertain on what the real story is.

  13. Makati1 on Wed, 27th Aug 2014 11:01 am 

    farmlad, the real story is that 8/11 happened, with the assistance of the US CIA, to allow the Bush regime to go to war again. A classic “False Flag” event, believed by the sheeple because they have been led to believe they lived in a country that would never kill 4,000 of their own people for political/financial gain.
