Exposes Barbaric Saudi Regime

New Eye-Opening Documentary Completely Exposes Barbaric Saudi Regime

Submitted by Michaela Whitton via TheAntiMedia.org,

A British television crew recently filmed an undercover documentary in Saudi Arabia in an attempt to penetrate the world’s most secretive and murderous regime. Working with a team of undercover Saudi cameramen, the one hour eye-opener, Exposure: Saudi Arabia Uncovered, was broadcast by ITV on March 22. It reveals the hidden side of the regime, which buys billions of pounds worth of British arms, accepts training from British security forces, sells oil back to the U.K., and enjoys nothing less than red carpet treatment from the British royal family.

After setting up a fake company, the crew flew into Riyadh posing as businessmen, wielding carefully concealed hidden cameras. For cover, they said they were in the country to attend a business conference on cyber-security. What they discovered was a state that beheads — and even crucifies — its citizens; where women lack basic human rights and its children are indoctrinated. Patrolled by religious police, citizens are tortured, imprisoned, and sentenced to death for writing blogs and questioning authority. It sounds like the Islamic State, but it’s not — it’s the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. And it is fully propped up by Europe and the United States.

The mind-boggling documentary reveals how Saudi Arabia’s money and Wahhabi ideology has helped drive terrorism around the world. Shining a light on Britain’s shoulder-rubbing with the ruling royals, the production has pushed the U.K. government to admit they have provided more than 300 Saudi police officers with training since 2012.

“A necessary evil”

In January 2015, the Union Jack flew at half-mast at Westminster as a mark of respect for the death of Saudi ruler, King Abdullah. During the same month, young Saudi blogger Raif Badawi received 50 lashes in public. Convicted of insulting Islam after blogging about his government and religion, quoting Albert Camus, he wrote:

"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”

Comments like this earned the father of three 1,000 total lashes and ten years in prison.

“We don’t approve of what Saudi Arabia does, we don’t like what they do, but they are a necessary evil in combating other regimes,” former Head of International Terrorism, Colonel Richard Kemp, told ITV.

“And of course, ultimately they have a lot of oil,” he added.

Undercover cameraman Yasser is from an underground network of Saudi activists. He risked life and limb to provide a window into the brutal and secretive country where the King is all powerful, journalists cannot operate without a minder, and dissent is a cardinal sin. In the country, which is home of some of Islam’s holiest sites, the Saudi state oil company is worth £7 trillion. The royal family is worth billions. In contrast, an estimated quarter of the population lives in poverty, and numerous women were filmed begging and being beaten in the streets.

It is estimated that only one in five Saudi women of working age are employed. They are banned from driving and struggle to perform simple tasks, such as going to the doctor without a male guardian. But some are fighting back, and prominent human rights activist Loujain Hathloul has become the face of the Saudi women’s rights movement.

Moments after uploading videos of herself driving — as part of a campaign to change the ban against it — the activist was arrested for trying to enter Saudi Arabia from the United Arab Emirates while behind the wheel. Imprisoned for 73 days without trial, she remains banned from traveling. Terrorism charges also were filed against her. Facing persistent death threats towards her and her family, for some she is a hero. For others, she is a hate figure.

The Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice

The religious police, officially known as the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, patrol streets and shopping malls enforcing strict Islamic laws. Yasser films himself and his friend as they are violently stopped from playing a lute outside. Playing music in public is forbidden, and their instrument and hidden camera are smashed. In other instances, religious police force women to cover themselves and drive people out of cafes to pray.

This strict form of Sunni Islam is known as Wahhabism, and it is the religion on which Saudi Arabia was founded. It is thought that the majority of Saudis support the state ideology, and the activists film a preacher spreading hatred of other religions and the Shia minority. Children are shown being indoctrinated by school textbooks, made in Saudi Arabia and exported to the world.

“No country is the perfect ally, perfect partner, without any reservations whatsoever. Welcome to the real world, welcome to the premier league,” said former CIA Director, General David Petraeus.

Director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs, Ali al-Ahmed, said the Saudi education system was created as a security measure to protect the ruling family and mislead millions of students into hatred of other religions and cultures. Some say the state has made progress in removing some of the worst examples of hatred from its textbooks, but the books can still be found in mosques and schools around the world.

Al-Ahmed added, “It’s no wonder that thousands of Saudis joined ISIS and other terror groups because they were trained in Saudi schools.”

“Chop Chop Square”

In 2015, Saudi Arabia executed 157 people. Traditional punishments are employed, and executions are often carried out in public by one sword blow to the neck. Headless bodies are sometimes displayed publicly, and the documentary shows harrowing footage of a Burmese woman screaming for mercy as she is beheaded in the street.

Yasser says many Saudis are angry but cannot speak out due to fear of imprisonment, adding that the regime relies on secrecy; criticism of the government is considered an act of terror. The film crew visits one of Saudi Arabia’s most notorious landmarks, known as Chop Chop Square. It is the scene of many of the regime’s public executions and has drains in the ground for blood.

Since 9/11, Saudi Arabia has attempted to show the world they are tackling terrorism. The regime has clamped down on private donations to extremists from inside the Kingdom and carried out airstrikes against ISIS. They deny they are supporting the terror group, but many feel it is the underlying Wahhabi Salafi ideology that is the wider problem.

Former Director of Political Islam of the CIA, Emile Nakleh told ITV:

“The ideology of ISIS is not much different from the ideology that Wahabi Salafi Islam in Saudi adheres to. Unless the Saudis deal with this issue, we are going to constantly fight yesterday’s wars. Even if we defeat ISIS there will be another terrorist organisation, perhaps with a different name, as long as they have this ideology.”

Unwilling to tolerate dissent and fiercely opposed to sharing power, Saudi Arabia executed 47 people in January of this year — its largest mass execution since 1980. Some were convicted terrorists, but others were political activists. Footage smuggled out by activists has revealed that the executions sparked the largest public protests since the Arab Spring.

Since the mass executions, Yasser has stopped filming undercover. He claims it is just too risky continue, which, of course, is exactly what these public displays of punishment are all about. Although activists are being forced underground, the spread of mobile phones and cameras means it is becoming impossible for the regime to control what the world sees.

While in the country pretending to be traders, the filmmakers’ website was hacked, leading them to believe their cover was blown. As a result, they promptly left the country.

The documentary ends with a statement from the Saudi authorities condemning the covert filming by ITV:

“The kingdom of Saudi Arabia utterly rejects the partisan nature and sensationalist tone of this documentary which sets out to portray the country in a negative and unbalanced light. The Kingdom’s legal system is based on the due process of Islamic Sharia Law. The Kingdom is at the forefront of international efforts to combat terrorism and will pursue anyone who supports and funds terrorist activities. To suggest otherwise is a slur. In keeping with its biased agenda, ITV chose to undertake covert filming when they could have applied for and received a journalistic visa, like many of their counterparts.”

Many of us are interested in other things thats going on around the world and especially when it comes to those barbarian saudi whom are giving Muslims a bad name..
All of us are fighting our own battles.. each to their own..

No one is forcing you or your kind to read our threads and posts on wahabi/saudi rodents.

Because Modi is felicitated by your Kothari Masters and they sing the praises and Many Amtes tied the RAAKHI on his wrist, he even visited the BOHRA Mosque while this is not the case with Saudi Monsters oops Monarchs. Modi is recipient of largess from Kothari Goons which was given by Abdes and Amtes (in the form of Sabeel etc) while no such thing was done to your Wahabis
So let us compare apples to Oranges
BTW I do think that thread about Narendra Modi has run too long and I donot even bother reading or commenting on it.

SBM bhai, by the same logic then, all posts in HERE AND NOW and ISLAM TODAY are redundant to this forum.

And by the same logic, 90% of posts by GM bhai are irrelevant as they have nothing to do with reform.

Bro Qutub,

SBM bhai has more or less given answers to the above but you have cherry picked only my posts against the Indian Muslim haters and conveniently ignored my various posts against Wahabis,Shias, Kothari Bohras and Jews all of whom at times have acted against the general Muslim populace. Hence, I have never been impartial, in fact I have even created threads wherein I have given examples of Hindu/Muslim brotherhood as my outburst is against the facist saffron brigade and not at average Hindus.

A great majority of posts by GM is about Narendra Modi and others who are benefiting from Kothari Goons with large donations.
Whether you like it or not the biggest thorn for Kothari Goons are Saudi Wahabis who could not be purchased with a SHAWL or a gift and are the only rulers who banned SMB for almost 20 years and when he did visit for Umrah, he visited at their terms and not on Kothari Goons term.
Remember in India because of their habit of greasing the palms, they can bring a CAR on RAILWAY PLATFORM but could not buy off Saudi Wahabis to even do a WADHAWA at the Jeddah Airport when SMB went there. So like it or not, I think Saudi Wahabis are the only people who could not be swayed by corrupt Kothari Goons
And for that I say go Saudi Wahabis, Remember a great proverb " My Enemy's enemy is my Friend"

Bro zinger,

Lets get one thing clear that there are various subjects on this forum like "Islam today", "Here and Now" etc. where one can post suitable articles, this forum is not only about bohras and reforms but it offers members a broad perspective to the world outside Bohras.

And brother, I don't take any of your adverse statements to heart because I understand the context of it.

Laptops recovered from ISIS jihadists are filled 'up to 80%' with PORN, reveals former US intelligence director

Michael Flynn says laptops seized from jihadis are filled with porn films
Says this is what is desensitising fanatics into carrying out brutal attacks

A former US intelligence director has revealed that laptops seized from ISIS jihadis are filled up to 80 per cent with porn films.

'We looked a ruthless enemy in the eye - women and children, girls and boys, raped and exploited, the beheadings stored on a laptop next to pornography.

Last year, former London mayor Boris Johnson said that homegrown fanatics from the UK who go to join ISIS are w*****s who watch porn because they can't find girlfriends.
He explained that British terrorists often become radicalised because of their badly adjusted relations with women and turn to extremism to stop them feeling like losers.

U.S is Backing Saudi War Crimes in Yemen

US-backed war crimes in Yemen by Saudi Arabia are so cruel that there is no way that could somehow be drawn away from the international attention. As Larry Wilkerson said to Sharmini Peries and the Real News:

This is the worst humanitarian disaster since World War II. People are dying left and right, young people, middle age, whatever you want to say, of cholera. They're dying of starvation and we have things like the Saudis, for example, using our precision-guided munitions and possibly even our intelligence and AWACs control, and certainly our refueling aircraft, doing such things as bombing the port side cranes that offload food and water. Now, they can't offload food and water because the Saudis bombed those cranes and that's just one example of a really unsavory and even heinous way of warfare that the Saudis have engaged in in Yemen.

The Saudis inbreds, imbecile, rodents are having a bad weekend, as their is turmoil within the Saudi regime and reports coming out of a possible coup, with many princes being arrested.

Yesterday night the Houthis launched a ballistic missile at the territory of Saudi Arabia from Yemen which hit its target causing an ammo dump to explode and many military casualties, this is not the first or even second time Houthis and Yemen national army has destroyed many military objects of high importance in the pigge dictatorship.

Glad to see this scums of the earth getting distressed and hopeful the Houthi´s will send many many more gifts to the wahabbi pigs.

SAUDI PRINCE KILLED: HELICOPTER CARRYING 8 HIGH-RANKING OFFICIALS & PRINCE BIN-MUQRIN CRASHED NEAR YEMEN BORDER – ALL DEAD

The shocking latest twist in what has been a chaotic weekend in Saudi Arabia is news that a helicopter transporting 8 high-ranking Saudi officials (including prince Mansour bin-Muqrin) has crashed in the south of the Kingdom, near the border with Yemen.

Sky News Arabia confirms an earlier report from Al-Watan news…“Newsletter: loss of a helicopter carrying a number of officials in the southern Asir, Saudi Arabia”

Details are few for now but some headlines report that the high-ranking officials aboard included Crown Prince Mansour bin-Muqrin, deputy Emir of Asir province.

Well , well, well.. Just like most have suspected, the two evils and the enemy´s of Islam are collaborating.. The stinking wahabbis rodents are planning to go after Lebanon now. This imbeciles, bloodthirsty pigs, want more death and destruction..

"Explosive" Leaked Secret Israeli Cable Confirms Israeli-Saudi Coordination To Provoke War

Early this morning, Israeli Channel 10 news published a leaked diplomatic cable which had been sent to all Israeli ambassadors throughout the world concerning the chaotic events that unfolded over the weekend in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, which began with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri's unexpected resignation after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers, and led to the Saudis announcing that Lebanon had "declared war" against the kingdom.

The classified embassy cable, written in Hebrew, constitutes the first formal evidence proving that the Saudis and Israelis are deliberately coordinating to escalate the situation in the Middle East.

The explosive classified Israeli cable reveals the following:

On Sunday, just after Lebanese PM Hariri's shocking resignation, Israel sent a cable to all of its embassies with the request that its diplomats do everything possible to ramp up diplomatic pressure against Hezbollah and Iran.
The cable urged support for Saudi Arabia's war against Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen.
The cable stressed that Iran was engaged in "regional subversion".
Israeli diplomats were urged to appeal to the "highest officials" within their host countries to attempt to expel Hezbollah from Lebanese government and politics.

THE UNFOLDING COUP IN ARABIA

By Simon Templar

Have you seen the ending of the 1972 movie, "The Godfather"? It brilliantly showed the bloody scenes of the "takeover" of the Mafia by Michael Corleone (Al Pacino).

One by one, all the bosses of the rival families are killed and removed until all opposition is gone and the Corleone family's control over Mafia is complete.

Something very similar is happening right now in Saudi Arabia as I am writing these lines. In just less than two days, 49 influential Saudis have been arrested, which include 11 members of the Royal family.

Among them is Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal who happens to be the richest Saudi prince and businessmen and also one of the top 50 richest and most influential businessmen in the world.

As if that was not intriguing enough, a helicopter carrying several Saudi officials, including Prince Mansour bin Muqrin Al Saud, has crashed in the kingdom's southwest near the border with Yemen.

Prince Mansour was the son of the former crown prince of Saudi Arabia and was a very influential man in the Kingdom.

According to many, if things were normal, he would have been the future king of Saudi Arabia.

What's going on? For that we have to go back in time, to see how the ascension to the Saudi throne has been working in the past.

The first King of Saudi Arabia was Abdulaziz ibn Al Saud. He conquered his ancestral region of Nejd (central Saudi Arabia) and Hejaz (Western Coast of Saudi Arabia that includes the two holy cities) and became the king of this newly-created kingdom called Saudi Arabia.

After him, one by one his sons became the king. This was a unique system in which the sons of the first king took turns, one after another.

Everyone knew who will be the king and who will be the crown prince. It was a very stable system but only in a short term.

Because, although the first king had a long line of sons, it had to end someday. It was inevitable that one day when all the sons of the first king will die or grow extremely old, then the question will arise that in whose family-line the kingship will be transferred?

As more time passed, more uncertainty and rivalry grew among the princes and family-lines of various former kings of Saudi Arabia.

The current official estimate of the members of the Royal house of Saud is around 15000 princelings, among them many debauche, deviant, cruel and abnormal.

In 2015, when the present King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud came to power, he was the 25th son of the first king and already 79 years old.

Like his older brothers before him, he appointed his younger brother Muqrin bin Abdulaziz as the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. It was understood that after Salman, Prince Muqrin will be king.

And it was becoming increasingly likely that after Muqrin, no son of the first king will be around or fit enough to rule the Kingdom. Hence the throne will most probably pass to Muqrin's family and his son, Prince Mansour (now dead in a mysterious helicopter crash) will become the next king.

Everyone could see that possibility, but suddenly something strange happened. Just spending four months as the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Muqrin was removed by King Salman on the pretext of the Crown Prince's ill health whereas The King himself is ill and senile!

The King appointed his own mercurial young son Prince Muhammad bin Salman as the crown prince of Saudi Arabia.

The writing on the wall was now clear that the transfer of kingship among the sons of the first king officially ended and the kingship will subsequently be transferred in the family-line of King Salman downwards.

But here is the problem. It was an unnatural transfer. The natural transfer was supposed to happen in Crown Prince Muqrin's family-line, if he was allowed to rule.

There was this extremely uncomfortable, pregnant silence in the royal family, but tensions were simmering under this ominous calm, in the wake of this unconventional power transfer.

Domestically, Prince Muhammad immediately started consolidating power by taking control of one institution after another.

There is hardly anything today in Saudi Arabia that can be done without his approval. His orders are that everything big or small will go through him.

But among Royalty, history teaches us that the silence of the royal family or control of national institutions is never enough to consolidate power in modern day Saudi Arabia.

Prince Muhammad also needed the approval and backing of America. Something that every Saudi King needs, specially after the Gulf crisis of 1991.

And for that purpose Prince Muhammad needed Yousef Al Otaiba, the current United Arab Emirates ambassador to the United States and a charismatic and shrewd businessman from a very influential family of UAE. Yousef Al Otaiba is like one of those people about whom you do not hear or know very much, but they are the real power brokers in Washington and other important capitals of the world and whose influence extends far beyond their apparent job specifications.

This alliance between Prince Muhammad and Yousef became very instrumental in sponsoring Prince Muhammad in the halls of Washington. Yousef Al Otaiba not only got important connections for Prince Muhammad but was also the key man behind the May 2017 US$350 billion arms deal between US and Saudi Arabia signed by President Trump.

It was a plain and simple deal based on crystal clear interests. President Trump needed Saudi money for creating jobs, under the banner of which he fought his election campaign and also to show progress after repeated domestic failures.

Prince Muhammad, on the other hand, wanted to show the Royal family that now he has the needed approval of Washington for his ascension to the throne will backing.

This new friendship with powerful people in Washington gave the exact kind of dangerous confidence to Prince Muhammad, the consequences of which we subsequently saw in the Middle East.

The ruthless bombing campaign in Yemen, the standoff with Qatar and the ever-increasing belligerence towards Iran are some of the apparent consequences of Prince Muhammad's newly-found alliances.

But the influence of Yousef Al Otaiba on Prince Muhammad went a little beyond that. The recent relaxation of laws like allowing Saudi women more freedoms etc are a manifestation of that welcome influence to modernize a hypocritical and archaic society.

Yousef not only convinced Prince Muhammad to pass these laws, he also peddled these changes in Washington to show that how much "moderate" Prince Muhammad will be as the King of Saudi Arabia.

But soon the backlash came. While Prince Muhammad was busy showing his "progressive" side to the West, the influential sidelined members of Saudi Royal family and many hardline clerics of the powerful Wahabi establishment were getting restless and vocal about Prince Muhammad's legitimacy as the next king and his methods of ruling the Kingdom.

Washington was monitoring all these developments and gave Prince Muhammad a go-ahead signal through a recent visit to Riyadh by Jared Kushner, who is the son-in-law and Senior Advisor to President Trump.

Resultantly, the political purge started with these high-profile arrests in the name of crackdown against corruption, alongside a dead man in a "mysterious" helicopter crash who could've been the next king.

And for now it seems that the Mafia style takeover of the Saudi throne is underway by a young, ruthless godfather who seeks to dominate the landscape of Middle East for a long time to come.

Modernisation, privatisation and elimination of the power of the clergy are on the agenda. Instead of doddering old semi senile octogenarians ruling over a rigid narrow repressive ultraconservative society, an energetic young man has been chosen to revamp and reshape Arabia, giving it a place among the modern countries of the world.

Pakistan too needs to wake up. Its sycophantic policy of verring to the right, pandering to wahabi ideology for handouts of dollars has driven it to the lip of the abyss and certain destruction.

Now that its masters are abandoning antiquated and abnormal policies to be in sync with the world, so should this nuclear armed impoverished nation of 220 million which lost its secular soul at the alter of jihad fuelled by petro dollars.

The world has been watching silently as the capital has been held hostage by a few dozen radical Islamic fundamentalists. Great unease at this sight of the nuclear armed Government being helpless in the face of a rag tag band of mullahs is felt in the west and a decision has been taken: this will not stand!

Change is inevitable, Pakistanis can choose, they can initiate it themselves and start the process of normalisation, else it shall be imposed from abroad. For too long has the world tolerated the basket case of South Asia... the clock has run out! Be warned!

Nothing can be worse then the wahhabi stinking sewage ideology, culture of whisky drinking pigs, womanizer cockroaches, supporters of terrorist all over the world, responsible for destroying 90% of Islamic history,. This rodents have only brought death and disease where’ve there rotten version of Islam was introduced. I could go on and on about this barbaric evil cult of tribes and
medieval Imbecile.
Couldn’t pray for the worst to a nicer collection of people (who should all be drived into the Red Sea with their bottles of whisky and along with the thousands of "Princesses and concubinese" in their nighties....
It would be a wonderful sight to see....

Nasrallah today: I have information that says Saudi Arabia offered Israel billions of dollars in exchange for bombing Hezbollah and Lebanon. Also Saudi incitement played a major role in 2006 war against Hezbollah.
