Remember Prince Bander bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, Saudi ambassador in Washington for 20 years, whom Michael Moore glorified in his movie ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ – as the most confident friend of Dubya Bush – is now being missed by his Zionist friends behind the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Bandar’s last official post was being the National Security Advisor to Saudi King Abdullah. Currently, he is reported to be living under huge villa arrest over his involvement in last year failed attempt to replace King Abdullah and speed-up the US-Israel agenda in the Middle East. Had Bandar been a commoner, his head would have long been chopped-off under the Saudi dual Shari’ah law. But like the Israeli agents in the US – Saudi ‘royals’ are also above the country’s laws. Bandar is married to the daughter of late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia.
King Abdullah’s US$60 billion arms contract with the US is considered an ‘offering’ to prove that he is still the best puppet ZOG in Washington can have. Furthermore, he allegedly has given permission to the Israel Air Force to fly over Saudi air-space in case it wants to attack the Islamic Republic. The Kingdom has reportedly allocted US$500 million to destroy Hizbullah as a military threat to Israel.
Personally, I have never doubted Syrian Baathist regime’s hatred toward Islam. In the past they have provided their services to the West by invading Lebanon after October 23, 1983 Israeli bombing of Marine barracks in Beirut. It was done on Washington’s request to pre-empt the take-over of government by the pro-Palestinian Islamists. Earlier in 1982, the Baathist regime carried a bloody massacre in Hama resulting in the death of 20,000 civilian men, women and children for their support for the Muslim Brotherhood Party. Damascus’ current protection to Hamas and Islamic Jihad leadership and its ‘friendly’ relations with the Islamic Republic – is for the Baathist regime’s self-interests and not for the Islamic Brotherhood. Damascus is using it as ‘bargain-chip’ to extract some good deal from the US Jewish Lobby groups.
Yusuf Dhia-Allah wrote an interesting article in the October issue of Crescent International about how Bandar bin Sultan traveled to Damascus under an assumed name using a false passport and carrying millions of dollars in cash. He was recognized by the Syrian security forces. Under interrogations he told them that he came to Syria to instigate trouble for the pro-Iranian regime as well as instigate sectarian conflict in Lebanon to undermine Hizbullah. This was part of Bandar’s plan to help his Israeli friends in return for their help in grabbing and maintaining power in the kingdom.
In 2007, Bandar had made a secret trip to Israel to meet then Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert telling him that Saudi Arabia would finance Israel’s war against Hizbullah if the latter could be destroyed. The Zionists may be war criminals but they have more sense than taking on Hizbullah twice in two years. The Zionist army was badly mauled during the July–August 2006 invasion of Lebanon despite killing more than 1,100 Lebanese civilians and destroying $7 billion worth of infrastructure.
The Syrian authorities sat on the information provided by Bandar, waiting for the Saudis to make the move. After several weeks of absence, the Saudi rulers started to inquire about Bandar’s whereabouts. It was discovered that his last known plan was to visit Syria. Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal was dispatched to Damascus to inquire about Bandar. He met President Bashar al-Assad and after a long exchange of pleasantries, Saud al-Faisal brought up the question of Bandar. “I am glad you asked,” said Assad to his Saudi visitor. After Assad briefed Faisal on what Bandar had admitted to the Syrians, the Saudi foreign minister requested that Bandar be handed over into his custody. The Syrians were not going to roll over so quickly; Assad refused the request prompting Saudi king Abdullah himself to make an unusual trip to Damascus last year. This was a major humiliation for Abdullah. The Saudis view the Syrians with disdain because of the latter’s close relations with Islamic Iran and their refusal to surrender to the Zionist entity as proposed by the Saudis. Syria is also host to both Palestinian Islamic movements — Hamas and Islamic Jihad — and has refused to shut down their offices despite pressure from the Saudis, Egyptians, Americans, and the so-called Palestinian Authority headed by Mahmoud Abbas.
Bandar was handed over to King Abdullah, when the latter visited Damascus, and taken back to Riyadh. There, a major storm broke out. Bandar was confronted about his plans. He confessed to plotting a coup but said he did it to “save the family.” He argued that the royal family was so hated that a popular uprising could not be averted. His coup would have bought time and saved many members of the royal family from certain death. His admissions rattled the king who in any case is not on very good terms with Bandar’s father, Sultan.
What the Bandar saga reveals is the rottenness at the core of the Saudi dynasty. At heart, they remain beduins — with a penchant for intrigue, backstabbing and robbery. After all, stealing runs in their blood. Abdul Aziz ibn Saud was a highwayman who robbed pilgrims’ caravans until the British discovered his “talents” and, therefore, his usefulness against the Ottoman Khilafah. Abdul Aziz was instrumental in destroying the Khilafah, the last organic link with the Islamic State established by none other than the noble Messenger (pbuh) himself in Madinah 1,400 years ago. For this treachery alone, the entire House of Saud should be executed because they are guilty of the greatest treason against Islam.
