Spread of Wahhabism was done at request of West during Cold War – Saudi Kingdom crown prince Mohammed bin Salman

The Saudi-funded spread of Wahhabism began as a result of Western countries asking Riyadh to help counter the Soviet Union during the Cold War, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told the Washington Post.
(Saudi Kingdom absolute monarchy was glad to have an exit to all these new extremist Wahhabi out of the country. Since then, religious extremist sect spread all over the world)

Speaking to the paper, bin Salman said that Saudi Arabia’s Western allies urged the country to invest in mosques and madrassas (religious schools) overseas during the Cold War, in an effort to prevent encroachment in Muslim countries by the Soviet Union.

(Saudi kingdom invested about $70 bn on mosques and appointed their brand of Wahhabi Sheikhs to preach in these mosques. Pakistan got infested with these madrassats)

He added that successive Saudi governments had lost track of that effort, saying “we have to get it all back.” Bin Salman said that funding now comes mostly from Saudi-based “foundations, rather than from the government.

The crown prince’s 75-minute interview with the Washington Post took place on March 22.

Another topic of discussion included a previous claim by US media that bin Salman had said that he had White House senior adviser Jared Kushner “in his pocket.” (Kushner is “investing” heavily in Saudi Kingdom)

Bin Salman denied reports that when he and Kushner – who is also Donald Trump’s son-in-law – met in Riyadh in October, he had sought or received a greenlight from Kushner for the massive crackdown on alleged corruption which led to widespread arrests in the kingdom shortly afterwards. (Saudi Kingdom claimed it generated $177 bn from these princes, held hostage for months)

(Not to mention the pronouncement of Trump on Jerusalem as Capital of Israel)

According to bin Salman, the arrests were a domestic issue and had been in the works for years.

He said it would be “really insane” for him to trade classified information with Kushner, or to try to use him to advance Saudi interests within the Trump administration.

He stated that their relationship was within a normal governmental context, but did acknowledge that he and Kushner “work together as friends, more than partners.” He stated that he had good relationships with Vice President Mike Pence and others within the White House. (Mostly with those extremist Evangelical Zionists within the administration)

The crown prince also spoke about the war in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition continues to launch a bombing campaign against Houthi rebels in an attempt to reinstate ousted Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi as president (Whom Saudi Kingdom doesn’t want him anymore).

The conflict has killed thousands, displaced many more, driven the country to the brink of famine, and led to a major cholera outbreak. (Most of the casualties are consequences of infested drinking water and malnutrition, cholera and diphtheria epidemics, due to bombing all Yemen infrastructure, hospitals and lack of medicines)

Although the coalition has been accused of a large number of civilian deaths and disregard for civilian lives – an accusation which Riyadh denies – the crown prince said his country has not passed up “any opportunity” to improve the humanitarian situation in the country. “There are not good options and bad options. The options are between bad and worse,” he said.

The interview with the crown prince was initially held off the record.

However, the Saudi embassy later agreed to led the Washington Post publish specific portions of the meeting.

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pa attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

The Syrian province of Afrin, Kurds majority, is in fact the strategic buffer zone to Aleppo against Turkish aggression. Afrin was entered by the Turkish troops but they will eventually withdraw

Ces philosophes qui essaient de nous convaincre qu’ ils ont decouvert et conquis leurs opinions propres par l’exercice d’une dialectique pure, froide et divinement impassible (Nitzsche)

Tous ces philosophes sont insincerent, des avocats astucieux de defenseurs de leurs prejuges, qui les baptisent “verite'” (Nitzsche)

Saudi Kingdom declared it “settled” for $107 billions from the detained princes, after private US security company tortured them for months.

The Syrians in Sotchi agreed on the main points in the new Constitution. Reforming the Constitution requires long time, but the designated team to discuss critical items have a month to submit their draft.

Once the Syrians on their own volition come to an understanding, the colonial powers will have No Say in the Syrian political system

Before 1935, the first trip for a job to the Lebanese was Palestine. And there was a train linking Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Egypt. If some Lebanese still think the Palestinians are the enemies and Not Israel (our existential enemy), they better assimilate their history.

Can’t get over my finding. Logic is mostly binary: you live, you die. Truth is invariably clear and is mono: you die.

Il doit exister une vertu sans la presence d’un diable ou la menace d’un enfer.

Y-a-t-il une fin de toute crainte? Embrasser les craintes et pousuiver ta marche triomphale contre une simple survie.

Il n’y a pas de fatalite’, ni malediction au fait que les classes d’elites aient tout, pendant que d’autres classes manque de tout.

Mepriser la vie sexuelle et la salir avec la notion d’impur est un veritable peche’ contre-nature, contre l’esprit sain de la vie.

La philosophie est un model personnel de penser la vie et vivre sa pensee’, une verite’ pratique pour mener sa barque existentielle. On est tous des philosophes quand on a le courage de pratiquer notre model de vie.
