I believe the Saudi establishment is just removing problematic members of the Saudi family to consolidate their power. If you had to get rid of someone would to do it under the guise of ‘Anti corruption’ or come out and say in a bid for more power we are getting rid of these family members. I am waiting for the day the Wahhabi extremist and Saudi loyalists clash, that country is a ticking time bomb.

That list is 14 men. More to come. It's good that they gave some reasons for the arrests, however I heard in a video that the arrested men are inside in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Riyadh.

Some of the 11 princes and 38 former government ministers, deputies and businessmen arrested in Saudi Arabia are reportedly being held at the hotel. Phone lines to the hotel have been cut off since Sunday morning.

I think King Saud will follow the way of Suharto/Indonesian President (or ....i do not remember the name, but he was a governor of Basra and then Kufa during the event of Karbala) who always like all seeing eyes which aware/suspicious to anybodies different from him and getting rid them, in his early stage until last stage of power. Same knowledge, behavior, decision.

he also made Saad hariri resign as prime minister of lebanon the same day and some say saad is a prisoner in the kingdom.. this comes a day after saad met with iranian officials.. but my theory is that israel is planning a peace deal with saudi arabia and these are all pre requisites.

First time I ever felt sorry for the Hariris, I didn't know why he resigned my mother thinks this is the revenge for the money he stole from Saudi, I personally thought that he resigned to cause uproar in Lebanon like what happened when his father was killed but I had no idea he met with Iranian officials the previous day it seems that he generally switched sides for whatever reasons. Yes by the way he's under house arrest here and the first channel which prodcasted his resignation was Al Arabiya a Saudi owned channel now with Israel on Lebanons door step it makes sense.

This is very serious, in the past 48 hours:

-Lebanese PM resigns WHILE IN RIYADH saying that Iran and Hezbollah are trying to assassinate him (which the Lebanese army officially even said yesterday that they have found no such plot).

-17 Princes arrested along with the head of the national guard

-The SON OF THE FORMER CROWN PRINCE who was replaced by the current crown prince bin Salman was killed in helicopter crash along with 7 other government officials

- Houthis fire missile at Riyadh airport and KSA blaming Iran for it which Iran denies

KEEP IN MIND that this comes a few weeks after the Saudi Crown Prince meetings with Netanyahu and Trump AND the CIA report which implicates Iran having ties with Al Qaeda (yeah you read that right) and Iran's possible involvement with 9/11.

Too many coincidences in such a short period of time don't you think? I really fear we are about to see a ground invasion of lebanon by Israel and Yemen by KSA very soon. Allah SWT Help us all.

The UK's daily mail newspaper reports:

EXCLUSIVE: Humiliation of Saudi billionaire and his fellow princes as they are photographed sleeping on bare mattresses after 'corruption' arrests as Trump says they 'have been milking their country for years!'

Followed by the following picture:

Let's face it, the more likely explanation is that the Pakistani and Indian servants of the detained princes have been made to sleep on the floor.

In the same hotel as the arrested royals, highly paid consultants from Boston Consulting Group, McKinsey and Deloitte have been drafting plans to overhaul an economy that has been anchored by patronage networks, which have often required foreign companies to partner with a royal to start any venture.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/nov/07/this-is-a-revolution-saudis-absorb-crown-princes-rush-to-reform

But if foreign consultancy companies have been using patronage networks to get their highly paid contracts, how can they be relied upon to overhaul the system and get rid of the patronage?

Who knows? It's possible that the crash was deliberate to get rid of that prince. :shock:

That would be my guess. I’d bet the same thing happened to the other Prince who was “killed” in a firefight.

Remember this Coup as one of the major events in world history when the world is torn apart during WWIII.

The plot continues to thicken.

If this is being revealed , imagine how much is being made surpressed.

May Allah continue to curse and punish the Killers of Sheik Nimer.

Instead of claiming Yemen shot down the Saudi helicopter, that news story says a Saudi warplane shot down the helicopter carrying the Saudi prince! :coffee:

Billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has long been associated with New York’s iconic Plaza Hotel, ever since he bought out Donald Trump over two decades ago.

But now, with the Plaza up for grabs, another royal has quietly emerged as a force who could shape the hotel’s future. And that would be Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, one of the most influential figures in Qatar.

Al Thani, it turns out, acquired the mortgage on the Plaza, the Beaux-Arts landmark on the southern fringe of Central Park. That could give him an edge as the fraught sale of the Manhattan property heats up. Alwaleed, who was put under house arrest in a sweeping crackdown in Saudi Arabia, recently sold half of his 25 percent in the Plaza to real estate developer Ben Ashkenazy. Al Thani happens to be a silent lender to Ashkenazy, who has been eyeing an even bigger stake as embattled owner Subrata Roy puts his interest on the market.

    • Would we really have evolved if we can't even fix what we destroyed?
    • Salam, I'm of the opinion that we should fix this earth. We won't need to leave this place for thousands of years if we do.
    • That is a good comment. Thanks for the points. First of all one user said that since eastern men think western women are freer, they are sinful. I did NOT mean that kind of freedom. It doesn't matter whether you are western or eastern. If you're Muslim, you won't do that. I mainly focused on freedom in working, money, and freedom in social interactions. These freedom I think does not attach man and woman to each other like before. For example, in SOME parts of eastern countries, man and woman are so dependent on each other. When you look at it, you see that they have some sort of limitations on their social interactions and give higher priority to family. You see that they spend MORE time than most western families with their family. I think one of the things that helped into these form of families is that wife is householder. She kept her husband around herself, and man became attracted and dependent on her. In western culture I think men at work are in contact with women. They are not Muslim and this is some sort of deterioration for his family base. Because he sees other women without Hijab, and if he doesn't follow religion correctly, he goes back home at night and compares his wife with his female colleagues (I know it's disgusting). These social interactions does not attach man and woman to each other in a proper way, and I think it is an introduction to freedom. I think it gives you this freedom to spend more time than before with your colleagues rather than your wife. Let me tell you from my experience of Iran. I personally cannot imagine that spending time with my friend is more enjoyable than my wife. I do know that other Iranian people have similar orientation if they are religious and did not have boy/girl friend in the past. I personally support women who work in companies with Hijab. It's some sort of advertisement and creates a good picture of Islam. About your idea on desi people, I think it's true to some of them. I also have this feeling towards them but not all. I asked my friend who is Indian: "do you like to support your wife financially if she wants to be house wife?" He said NO. That was surprising to me. He said she needs to work and earn money. I don't like supporting her financially. This is a non-muslim american culture. I saw some programs on TV that man was COMPLAINING that my wife doesn't work and I have to take care of all bills myself. Judge gave right to the man because in this culture with these rules, his words sound reasonable. My friend is not American at all. He was raised in India, but he is affected by this culture. How can I be sure that my future wife is not affected by some similar things(not particularly this example, any other western culture)? That is not acceptable to religion because even if woman works, man should give her Nafaghah. When I said cultural differences, I mainly meant this 50-50 culture that man and woman are both responsible and working.
    • That's a Catholic thing. Protestant churches have an empty cross. Nobody worships it as a God. It is a symbol, a reminder. The Israelites were into idols, they made many graven images, including a golden calf, they worshiped as a god. 
    • The Wahhabi phenomenon only occurred 120 years ago, prior to the creation of the wahhabis, Shia's were still persecuted by the mainstream Sunnis.
