Bow Down to Your Saudi Masters, they can do no Wrong.

The Khashoggi affair has highlighted in the most illuminated way possible that the West is utterly powerless against the Gulf States.

By now most people will know that Turkey have accused Suadi Arabia of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi when he visited the Saudi embassy in Turkey.

The details are a bit strange, with reports of covert recordings via an iWatch that recorded his incarceration, torture and eventual murder in the embassy, but what is definately proven is that Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi embassy in Turkey two weeks ago and hasn't been seen since.

It's a pretty serious accusation, so it would be interesting to know for sure what proof the Turkish authorities have regarding his murder.

However, as per the title of this post, the salient point is the lack of action against Saudi Arabia and the reasosn why.

Donald Trump really spoke the truth when he asked why would he jepardise the relationship and the multi-billion dollar arms sales to Saudi over the death of one guy?

The hidden agenda is America, like all other Western countries have been bought and paid for by Gulf State oil money. The UK's ports are owned by and all the Western Stock exchanges float on a sea of Arab oil money and there are a host of other vital industries like BAE, Boeing and Airbus that rely on Gulf State money to buy their products. Just look at how much money Emirates Airline has invested in their Airbus A380 fleet...

You cannot criticise the Gulf States or their extremist ideology any more without suffering significant harm to your economy. Slag off Saudi? There'll be no more oil exports to you then... Implement legislation to turn off the financial taps to Safalist Mosques? That'll be the FTSE 100 tanking then.

That is the honest debate that Western governments need to have with their citizens. Do we roll over and allow the Wahabi/Salafist religious, financial and political onslaught to continue against the West, or do we stand up to it and suffer the consequences?

In a way it's essentially the same conversation that was had about Brexit. Do we stand up and regain our sovereignty or do we roll over and submit?.....


Please read the Wikipedia entry about the TV programme "Death of a Princess" that was shown in 1980. In particular pay attention to the fallout after that programme was shown. Also pay attention to the fact that countries whose TV stations bought the rights to show decided in the end not to show it in case it endangered their relationship with Saudi Arabia. That's just a TV show, which was effectively censored from being shown in parts of the West.

That's the amount of influence the Gulf States had back in 1980. Several decades and billions more dollars in trade, arms deals, investments in property and companies and just extrapolate the amount of influence they have now.
