Saudi Arabia is an inwardly looking highly conservative tribal kingdom that was founded by Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud, a paid tribal leader of British empire who engineered the fall of Ottomans in the Mid-eastern region. From the time of it’s establishment Saudi Arabian autocrats showed their utmost support to Zionist led British empire and now their newly founded masters USA and European Union.
Though Saudis call themselves they rule according to Sharia, the real situation is empty. the name “Saudi” itself is a Monarch family with no legal connection to Islam and Shariah. They use Islam and Shariah as a tool to hide behind their atrocities and deviate the muslim and Arab mass. one can expose it’s ‘Shariah Myth’ through the citizenship act of Saudi Arabia. Citizenship of Islamic State ruled by ‘Shariah’ is for all Mankind including Muslims not for “Saudis”. Saudi expels Muslims let alone giving them citizenship.
It becomes obvious from this that the Saudi regime does not differ from the other apostate regimes which dominate Muslim countries, even though it may attempt to fool people through applying some of the laws of Islam over the common people, in particular the laws entitled ‘the personal laws’.
Saudis use a corrupt form of Islam called ‘Wahhabism’ to divide muslims. However Wahhabism is an Islamic movement that was named after Imam Muhammad ibn ‘Abdul-Wahhab of the 19th century. Imam Ibn ‘Abdul-Wahhab led a reform movement in Arabia in order to retain the pure and original form of Islam and purify it from all the innovations that the Sufis and Shias cults were really committing at that time.(i.e Grave worshiping, Worshiping Ali (RA), Shia Matam, Shia temporary marriages called ‘Mutah’ and other evil practices of Shias, Sufis, etc) Imam Ibn ‘Abdul-Wahhab followed the Hanbali school of thought, especially the opinions of Imam Ibn Taymiyah (RAH). The Wahhabi movement did contribute to Islam by removing a lot of mischief from the land of Arabia, eventually it gained the official status under the house of sauds. From the very first moment it was taken over by the Saudi Autocrats the movement however became atrocious and spread extremism. Saudi autocrats corrupted and manipulated the ideologies of Imam Wahhab for their own survival. Wahhabism gained considerable influence in the Muslim world following a tripling in the price of oil in the mid-1970s and the progressive takeover of Saudi Aramco in the 1974–1980 period. The Saudi government began to spend 100 billions dollars throughout the Islamic World to promote Wahhabism, which was sometimes referred to as “petro-Islam”.
Over the years their American and European masters turned Wahhabism and the tribe into ‘Monarch’- a system which is alien to Islam. In Islam there is no royal family as such. Thus the system of government, administration of justice, economic structure and distribution of wealth, overall society and all other aspects of life have been based on mediaeval tribalism and not based on Islam.
Under such system power, positions, wealth and almost everything remain the hereditary right of ruling family which is above law. This in itself is complete violation of Islam. People as a whole are treated as virtual slaves.
Known for their stinking corruption, shameful womanising lifestyle, suppression of freedom given by Islam to all including women, their collaboration with Zionist controlled US led European evil war agendas against Islam and Muslims, financing Zionist wars against Islam and Muslims, depositing the wealth given by Allah in the West, failure to help Muslims worldwide , creating conflicts among Muslims and so many other factors made the ruling family a source of threat and embarrassment to Islam and Muslims.
Saudis divide up muslims by injecting their evil ideologies and building numerous mosques in some impoverished states thus dividing and spilting them and dismantling their powers, creating communal and sect base violences. It comes as no surprise when a group of muslim is being accused of ‘attacking’ other Muslim groups. The allegations come from the very Saudis and Zionists who created their brand of Wahhabism mandated to destroy Islam from within.
Saudis are using the same age old method that Christian fundamentalist used to carry out conversions of poor Africans to Christianity. Saudis are also targeting poor Muslim families, providing cash, building super awesome mosques and kind in return for them to visible statement that they openly advocate Wahhabism and Saudi autocratism.
Saudi autocrats have also begun dismantling some of the oldest sections of Islam’s most important mosque as part of a highly controversial multi-billion expansion. Photographs obtained by The Independent reveal how workers with drills and mechanical diggers have started demolishing some Ottoman and Abbasid sections on the eastern side of the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca to build hotel spaces.
While there is little disagreement over the need to expand, critics have accused the Saudi regime of erasing the muslim heritage sites for their greed and intoxication on dollars. In the last decade Mecca has been transformed from a dusty desert pilgrimage town into a gleaming metropolis of sky scrapers that tower of the Masjid al-Haram and are filled with a myriad of shopping malls, luxury apartments and five star hotels.
To build these superficial structures, hotles and shopping malls, 95% of Mecca’s millennium-old buildings have been demolished in the past two decades alone. Dozens of key historical sites dating back to the birth of Islam have already been lost and there is a scramble among archaeologists and academics to try and encourage the authorities to preserve what little remains.
Then there is also the question of the House of Saud descending from Jewish merchants. In the 1960s ‘Sawt al Arab’ Broadcasting Station in Cairo, Egypt and the Yemen Broadcasting Station in Sana’a even confirmed the Jewish ancestry of the Saudi family. King Faisal Al-Saud did not deny his family’s kindred with the Jews and he declared on 17 September 1969 to the Washington Post that :
“We, the Saudi Family, are cousins of the Jews: we entirely disagree with any Arab or Muslim Authority which shows any antagonism to Jews; but we must live together with them in peace. Our country (Arabia) is the fountain head from where the first Jew sprang, and his descendants spread out all over the world”.
Also an ancient document has revealed how Sultan Abdul Aziz, the founder of Saudi Arabia assured Britain of creating a Jewish state on Palestinian lands. The controversial document, written as a notice to then British delegate Major General Sir Percy Zachariah Cox, is yet another proof of Saudi royal family’s hostile approach to the Muslims :
“I am the Sultan Abdul Aziz Bin Abdul Rahman Al Saud al-Faisal and I conceded and acknowledged a thousand times to Sir Percy Cox, delegate of Great Britain, that I have no objection to giving Palestine to the poor Jews or even to non-Jews, and I will never ever violate their [the UK] orders,”
The crucial question then must be posted ‘is Islam the actual religion practiced by the Saudi Family and are they of Muslim origin at all?’
Under such circumstance can Muslims worldwide accept this Saudi family as the “Custodian of the two holy mosques of Mecca and Madina”? Isn’t it time that Muslims worldwide think of liberating Islamic holy land from the medieval style Saudi tyrants who are nothing but American- Zionist wolf in Islamic sheep’s clothing?
