SAUDI AMERICA …
… THE 51ST STATE (ONE OF MANY AND SICK TO ITS CORE)
Hello all …
As you read this, a 19-year-old Sri Lankan maid sits in her prison cell waiting to hear if she will be executed by beheading in one of the world’s sickest and most brutal countries – Saudi Arabia.
While the dark minds in the dark suits incessantly chant the mantra about ‘terrorism’, they avert their eyes when it comes to the grotesque fascist regime known as the ‘House of Saud’. This silence is not just about oil, either. Saudi Arabia is a client-state of the United States and its befrocked ‘royal’ family does whatever it is told to do by the cabal in Washington.
It is no coincidence that the 9/11 patsy, Osama Bin Laden, came out of Saudi Arabia to be front man for the US and Saudi-funded terrorist groups in Afghanistan known as the Mujahideen who shapeshifted into the Taliban and ‘al-Qaeda’. Nor is it by chance that 15 of the 19 September 11th ‘hijackers’ named by the FBI were Saudi citizens.
Saudi Arabia is one of many 51st American states and acts as its proxy in the Middle East. Therefore, what is condemned in other countries is ignored when the Saudis do the same or worse.
Saudi Arabia … more US real estate
The Sri Lankan maid, Rizana Nafeek, went to Saudi Arabia two years ago. She was told to look after a baby boy, which was not part of the original employment agreement and she had no training in child care. The baby died two years ago while she was bottle-feeding him. She was ‘convicted’ for his death and sentenced to beheading, a decision that is now being challenged by the Sri Lankan government and human rights groups.
Imagine the outcry from the dark suits of North America and Europe if Iran was doing this. But, because it is the Saudis … silence. Saudi Arabia is the Arab version of Israel. There’s one law for them and another for everyone else and that should be no surprise given that both countries are controlled by the same force to the same end.
The sick, sick mind of Saudi Arabia
Public beheadings in Saudi Arabia have increased by four times this year with more than a hundred people executed so far compared with 37 in 2006. The bodies of the slain are put on public display as a warning to others. The death penalty is not only for offences like murder. Two years ago, for example, six Somali nationals were beheaded for car theft and in 1997 a man was executed for allegedly practicing witchcraft against his employer.
People convicted of theft have a hand chopped off and ‘unfaithful’ wives are stoned to death with the husband throwing the first stone. Saudi Arabia is a deeply sick and mentally imbalanced society, but the ‘free world’ looks on with eyes that cannot see.

The Saudi system is fascist at every turn and ticks every box. They can kill and mutilate whoever they like because there is no representation worth the name for those the state accuses of its capital offences, or for anyone else come to that. Saudi court proceedings take place behind closed doors with unrepresented defendants often not even told how their cases are proceeding.
Human Rights Watch says the Saudi legal system ‘fails to provide minimum due process guarantees and offers myriad opportunities for well-connected individuals to manipulate the system to their advantage’. Like I say, the state kills whoever it wants to by rigging the ‘evidence’ and the ‘courts’.
Horrific torture is used on innocent people to elicit false confessions. One English victim of this, Dr William Sampson, described how he was repeatedly tortured during the two-and-a-half years that he spent in prison for an offence he did not commit. He said he was raped, hung upside down and beaten on the soles of his feet:
‘They ultimately got a confession out of me. There was only so much I could take. The fact that I was confessing to something that might mean I was facing the death penalty became something of an irrelevance – given the brutality I was subjected to, death would have been its own reward.’
In Saudi Arabia, there is a ban on freedom of religion, freedom of speech and a long, long list of other basic freedoms, including holding hands with a woman in public, sitting in a restaurant with a woman who is not your wife, mother or sister, and wearing’offensive attire’ that shows any skin apart from your ankles, hands and face.
These guys really are desperately ill.
Meanwhile, of course, the king, and the thousands of princes and other offshoots of the Saudi ‘royal family’, all on the public payroll, observe none of the laws they enforce through state murder. I spent two months in Saudi Arabia in the late 1970s with a group working with the national football team and there was a ‘furniture store’ in the capital, Riyadh, which was a front for illegal whisky smuggling that supplied the royal palaces in this country where alcohol is banned. The Saudi royals are also infamous for their sexual activities in London and elsewhere while forcing strict sexual laws on their people at home.
Cathy O’Brien, the former mind-controlled slave of the US government, tells in her book, Trance-Formation of America, how she was forced to have sex on several occasions with the then King Fahd of Saudi Arabia on the orders of President Reagan’s personal attaché, Philip Habib.
I was 25 when I went to Saudi Arabia on a two-year contract, but I was preparing my exit with two weeks when I saw what really went on there. Within eight weeks I was free from the contract and out of the country. Funnily enough, I found many of the general population to be kind and friendly people, but the ruling royal and religious dictatorship was sick to its core, using the excuse of strict Sharia, or Islamic law, imposed through a form of Islam known as Wahhabism or Salafi, to enforce its will on the nation.
In 2002, fifteen schoolgirls died in a blazing building in Mecca after the Saudi Arabia ‘religious police’ blocked their escape when they weren’t wearing the correct female Islamic dress. One witness said he saw three policemen beating young girls to prevent them from leaving the school because they were not wearing the abaya [black clothing that covers the whole body]’. The religious police are widely feared in Saudi Arabia, as they roam the streets enforcing dress codes and sex segregation, and ensuring prayers are performed on time. Those who refuse to obey their orders are often beaten and sometimes jailed.
Women are imprisoned by the religious crazies and they are little more than slaves to the male population. Women cannot even be admitted to a hospital, examined by a doctor, travel abroad or leave the house without an immediate male relative, or his express permission. They must cover their entire body in the black abaaya and their work and career opportunities are severely restricted.
While so many people live in slums, the elite have built vast palaces from the wealth of the oil reserves owned not by the country, but the royal parasites that have hijacked the Arabian Peninsula and the holy shrines of Islam at Mecca and Medina.
The modern House of Saud emerged in central Arabia in 1744 when Muhammad bin Saud, who ruled a town called Ad-Dir’iyyah (Diriyah) near Riyadh, formed a brutal new political force with a cleric called Muhammad ibn Abd-al-Wahhab (hence Wahhabism) which fought for control of Arabia for 180 years before founding the present dynasty and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1926 (more formally in 1932) under King Abdul Aziz bin Saud.

Some researchers claim that the House of Saud is actually a Jewish dynasty in disguise. They say that in the year 851 members of the Arabic Al Masaleekh clan formed a trading caravan and met with a merchant called Mordakhai bin Ibrahim bin Moshe in Basra in what is now Iraq. Mordakhai was Jewish, but told them he was from their clan and had relocated to Basra after a family feud.
He asked if could join them on their journey to Najd in Arabia where he changed his name and eventually settled in the town of Al-Dir’iyyah, or Diriyah (where the founder of the modern House of Saud came from in the official story). Mordakhai gathered support among the Bedouin tribes and then declared himself their king, this research suggests.
Some tribes resisted and attacked Al-Dir’iyyah. Mordakhai was forced to flee and take shelter in a farm at near Al-Arid, which is now the Saudi capital, Riyadh. Within a month, it is said, he had killed the farmer, blamed it on a band of thieves and taken ownership of the property, which he called Al-Dir’iyyah after the town he had lost.
From there Mordakhai, who now claimed to be an Arab Sheikh, began begetting on the vast scale that is continued by the House of Saud to this day and his family secured ever greater swathes of land through violence, murder and deceit. They also arranged for a false history and lineage of the family to be written to connect them with Arab royalty and the Prophet Mohammed.
One of Mordakhai’s sons, Al-Maraqan (said to be from the Jewish Mack-ren) had sons called Mohammad and Saud, from which the name of the dynasty originates, researchers say. The House of Saud continued its mass begetting and slaughter until it reached its goal of controlling the entire Arabian Peninsular.
The House of Saud today consists of the descendants of King Abdul Aziz and his five brothers. Power is held by the council of the ‘Inner Six’, the heads of the family’s main branches, and the king, currently King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, who has had more than thirty wives and spawned at least fifteen sons and twenty daughters.
King Abdullah … knows how to put it about
The House of Saud is a fascist dictatorship of the most extreme kind. As one Arab researcher wrote:
‘They have named the whole Arabian Peninsula after their family name (Saudi Arabia) as if the whole region is their own personal real estate, and that all other inhabitants are their mere servants or slaves, toiling day and night for the pleasure of their masters (The Saudi Family).
They are completely holding the natural wealth of the country as their own property. If any poor person from the common people raises his/her voice complaining against any of the despotic rules of this Jewish Dynasty, the Dynasty cuts off his/her head in the public square. A princess of theirs once visited Florida, USA, with her retinue; she rented 90 Suite rooms in a Grand Hotel for about one million dollars a night! Can anyone of her subjects comment about that extravagant event? If he/she does, his/her fate is quite known: Death with the edge of the Saudi sword in the public square.’
It is, of course, not possible for murder, rape, corruption, deceit, hypocrisy, slavery and fascism to be involved without the Bush family being implicated somewhere and so they are. Since 9/11, when members of the Bin Laden family were allowed to fly out of the United States and back to Saudi Arabia days after the attacks, there has been much documentation of the close ties between the Bush family, the Bin Ladens and the House of Saud.
Cathy O’Brien says in Trance-Formation of America that Father George Bush said he simply told many other world ‘leaders’, including the King of Saudi Arabia, what to do and say. The long-time Saudi Ambassador to America, the quite appalling and staggeringly corrupt, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, was closely involved with Father Bush and remains so. The idea that Bandar is a practicing Muslim following the laws of Wahhabism is a real side-splitter, but we are supposed to believe it. He has gone on to become Secretary-General of the Saudi National Security Council where he continues to serve the Bush cabal’s best interests in the manipulated ‘war on terror’.
‘Now Mr. King, sir, tell me the deal again.’
‘I do whatever you say and you go deaf and blind when we kill people, chop their hands off and treat women like slaves.’
‘You got it, now let’s have a drink.’
So that’s some of the background that has led to a 19-year-old waiting in a condemned cell for killing a baby in what human rights groups say was an accident, not murder. If she is not reprieved she will be beheaded before her 20th birthday by a country so sick and depraved that words do not come easy to describe the depths of its insanity and wickedness.
One thing is for sure. If the life of Rizana Nafeek is spared it will be on the grounds of politics, not justice or compassion – for you cannot act on what you do not have.

love and best wishes,
Seven hours full-on with only two breaks??? You’re as much an athlete now as you ever were!
Amazing depth of detail and knowledge as always … and delivered in your conversational style the daunting amount of information is much easier to take and fold into the bigger picture … along with a pint or two of humor … a nod ‘n wink … and no teleprompter! Take that repeaters!
An added bonus is getting an impression of some of the crowd through a number of interviews recorded before, during intermission and at the end … nice touch for those of us who hide away in our tin-foiled rooms.
