Dear friend , you ask :

>So, how is Saudi Arabia going to revise its policies towards US? Create another 9/11? I doubt it.<

I also do. But the Saudis are not stupid and have got better means to achieve the goal which they can't achieve through terror. The US muscles are too strong, but not so the American soul. Americans can't be beaten, but they can be bought. All things are for sale in America after all, aren't they?

It's still worth reading and pondering on the 2006 article in 'Washington Time' by Rachel Ehrenfeld "Saudi interest in America". If you know that I am sorry I am repetitive.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2006/jan/15/20060115-103622-3038r/

She gives a thrilling insight into how buying America is progressing. Let me quote a few lines :

"(...) government sources estimate Saudi holdings in the United States at $400 billion to $800 billion(...)Yet, information regarding the magnitude of the Saudi economic infiltration into the United States is secret. The U.S. Treasury's interpretation of the census law, supported by a 1982 court decision, shields this data from the public."

400-800 bln bucks ... It's a 100% inaccuracy ! It seems that somebody in high places is very anxious not to disclose to how many Saudi billions are actually corrupting, biasing and eroding the American morale , the American self-preservation instinct, the American power and money elites, the American media , universities, cultural and civil associations , arms companies , - in short the very core of the American society. Ehrenfeld gives a number of eloquent examples of what follows when Saudi money is accepted :

" ... the privately owned Massachusetts technology company, Ptech, designed software used to develop enterprise blueprints that held every important detail of a given concern. The company was financed with more than $22 million, by Saudi multi-millionaire Yasin al Qadi, a Specially Designated Global Terrorist. The Saudis thus gained access to strategic information about many major U.S. corporations such as SYSCO, ENRON, and the U.S. Departments of Defense, Treasury, Justice, Energy, and even the White House. The extent of the damage, if it was investigated, remains a mystery."

" substantial Saudi and Gulf financial contributions "to bring the proper message to America's brightest minds," are pouring into U.S. educational institutions through Arab and Islamic centers and professorial chairs. Last month the prince gave $20 million each to Georgetown and Harvard universities. According to the Center for Religious Freedom, the Saudis also supply textbooks for public libraries, schools and colleges, and provide the content concerning Islam to some U.S. textbook publishers."

Do you think Georgetown and Harvard Universities will fail to prefer the Saudi way of seeing things in case it conflicts with the American or Jewish views?

"The Saudis' potential influence on U.S. and international media was recently illustrated by the prince's purchase of 5.6 percent of voting shares in News Corp., the world's largest publisher of English newspapers. Moreover, Reuters reported on Dec. 5 that the prince announced his plan to "spread the right message" via a new television channel, "The Message," to broadcast to the U.S. within two years.<

Venal American media have an important role to play in the undercover Saudi jihad. The media are paid to do the job of paving the way to the triumph of Islam, of demoralizing the kafirs, denigrating the bravest opponents, extolling "the religion of peace", "exposing" Islamophobia etc. If I am not mistaken, many major TV and radio channels seem to be already on the Saudi payroll.

> Because if it were found Saudi Arabia was involved in another 9/11, next time US will invade the 'correct' country -- Saudi Arabia with Mecca and Medina to be considered just 'other' cities of no religious significance; and I doubt Saudis will take any chances on that. It is all usual Saudi blather.<

I am afraid that given the degree of the Saudi infiltration (=bribes) in all important spheres of American political and economic life the Saudis may consider the future with optimism. Even if another terror attack takes place and if - say - not 15, but 19 out of 19 terrorists turn out to be Saudis, the US will never think of invading Saudi Arabia. It will choose a safer target - let's say Serbia or North Korea ... And it will continue to shamefully support Saudi efftorts to create more Moslem - whahhabi-backed - states here or there in the world as was the case in Bosnia and Kosovo that now have changed into two wahhabi outposts in Europe.

The Saudi have made a strategic decision with far-reaching consequences. By buying America to cooperate with and to cover Saudi-sponsored jihad they have entered a new and relaively secure path to achieve what others try to achieve with less efficient traditional Islamic terror.

The Saudis detest Christianity but they surely know what Jesus - so much loved and followed in America - said : "Where your treasure is, so is your heart also". The treasure is in Saudi Arabia, so too many American hearts belong to the Saudi cause now. These hearts -alas- rule America.

With best regards ,

Ianus
