It’s a well know fact and a common knowledge that ‘Gulf Sheikhdoms’ are the engineers of the turmoils, which plague the Islamic world ever-since from the fall of Ottoman Caliphate, the Last Islamic Khilafat state. Fifty years before the invention of Oil, no one ever took any notice of these backward bedouin gang, lot-cut from the modern world and who are far away from the Modern education and civilization. However, the lifestyles of few Bedouin tribes were molded in Islamic environment, which preaches equality, coexistence, Anti Racism, Woman empowerment and behavioural ethics of life.
This lifestyle continued uninterrupted till the discovery of oil on March 4, 1938. The first oil well was discovered by the British in 1923 now modern day Dahahran, Dammam Saudi Arabia. Since then, Islam, in its proper perspective disappeared from the region under the European colonial rule which could be described as the Dark Age in the Middle East.

The political mess that Britain created in the aftermath of WWI remains today and Brits and Zionists were solely responsible for creating the present Middle east Kingdoms and installing puppet family rules there. As a result these Royal families owes a great deal to British and the Jews.
One such monarch is ‘The House Of Al-Saud’, the most corrupted, inhuman backward people ever descended on earth. Their loyality towards the west and Zionist regime manifested once again when they backed the coup in Egypt and funneled billions of dollars. Egyptians should beware Saudis bearing gifts. The House of Saud is not really interested in helping Innocent Egyptians, but it is very much involved in supporting the Salafists of the Egyptian Noor party. It is the Noor religious fundamentalists who won an extraordinary 24 per cent in the last parliamentary election and who ruthlessly decided to ally themselves with General al-Sisi when Morsi was dethroned. The conservative Salafists are much more to Saudi taste than potentially moderate and liberal members of the Brotherhood. It is for them and to their ex-colonial masters and The US and it’s illegitimate child Israel, that the King is opening his purse, to bring down the Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi and also to wipe out the Pro Morsi sit-ins last wednesday at Rabia al-Adawiyya, Egypt. However, In all the cities and towns of Egypt, the people in the streets are by no means all members or supporters of the MB. They include women and men, secularists alongside Islamists, Copts as well as Muslims, youth and older people who reject manipulation and a return to military rule in the guise of “democracy.”
The corrupted dictator of Saudi Arabia, Abdullah (‘Abdu’shaitan’, Abdullah literally means the slave of God, while Abdu’shaitan means the slave of devil) issued an unusually rapid and strong endorsement of Al-Sisi’s crackdown on the MB’s sit-ins, calling on all Arabs to unite behind a crackdown on terrorism, incitement, and disorder. Bahrain, the UAE, and Kuwait rapidly backed his stance.
But many of the most popular and influential Saudi and Kuwaiti Imams (Islamic Leaders) disagreed vehemently and publicly. Indeed, a popular hashtag quickly appeared on Twitter: #King_Abdullah’s_Speech_represents_me.
|Imam Dr. Tareq al- Suwaidan|
There is a long history of Imams challenging the legitimacy of Gulf Sheikhdoms. The most public backlash thus far came with Saudi multi billionaire and womanizer Prince Waleed bin Talal’s sudden removal of the popular Kuwaiti Imam Dr. Tareq al- Suwaidan from Al-Resalah Satellite TV over his criticism of the Egyptian military coup. Imam Al-Suwaidan holds pro- democratic, free speech and freedom of religion viewpoints and is one of the signatories of A Common Word Between Us and You, an open letter by Islamic scholars to Christian leaders, calling for peace and understanding. In 2006 he demanded that the European Union, as well as the rest of the world, enact “a law that forbids the insult to religious figures and religious sacred opinions.” He has supported women’s rights within Islamic sharia law and advocated for reforming traditional understanding of Islam. In May 2007, Al-Suwaidan was listed by US, the fathers of Gulf Shiekhdom, along with a group of US Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood members), as an unindicted co- conspirator in the terrorism financing case against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development which was convicted along with its leaders of financing Hamas.
Suwaidan was vocal indeed in his criticism of the crackdown, but he was hardly alone. The condemnation of Egypt’s crackdown and of the official Gulf support extends across multiple Islamist networks and prominent personalities. The popular Kuwaiti Islamist personality Nabil el- Awadhi, for instance, raged that “the blood of innocents in flowing in Egypt … the murderers unleash their bullets without mercy and lay siege to mosques and burn them … and they want you Muslims to watch in silence!” When the Saudi Abd al-Aziz Tarefe tweeted that “what is happening in Egypt is a war against Islam,” he received 1584 retweets in 24 minutes.
On the other hand, Imam Mohammed bin Nasir al-Suhaybani (he was also fired by the Al-Saud officials) had delivered a sermon at Masjid un-Nabawi (The Prophet’s Mosque) in Medina denouncing the crackdown and arguing that whoever supported the coup bore the responsibility for the bloodshed and had God’s curse upon them. The video, posted to YouTube, has received hundreds of thousands of views. His rapid banishment quickly generated a popular hashtag in his defense (“Shaykh Suhayban Represents Me”) which resonated uneasily with the hashtag “King Abdullah’s Words Do Not Represent Me.”
So this is the role played by the Gulf Sheikhdoms and Al-Sauds, who call themselves the ‘Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques’. It is such a shame that they support the bloodsheds of their own people in Egypt. It is such a shame that these Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques wage war against Islam and Muslims in Egypt. It is this Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques make ally with the US, the Sworn enemies and the forces hostile to Islam. It is such a shame that Over the years today they have become client state of US and Israel. They collaborate and assisted in the US-European and Israeli invasion and destruction of Muslim countries a killing millions of Muslims. And the biggest tragedy is that they have chosen to it openly.
Under such circumstance can Muslims worldwide accept this Saudi rascals as the “Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques”?
Isn’t it time that Muslims worldwide think of liberating Islamic holy land from the medieval style Saudi tyrants and their gulf tails who are nothing but American- Zionist wolf in Islamic sheep’s clothing?
Undoubtedly the gates of ‘Jahannam’ (Hell) are opened for these US-Zionist wolves in Islamic clothing and it is matter of time that the Saudi regime, despised by worldwide Muslims, and their Gulf tails pay the price for overstepping their limits.
