Founder Of Georgetown Jihad Center, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Arrested In Saudi Arabia

November 4, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Al Sabah is reporting that Bin Talal was arrested Sunday morning as part of a round-up of Saudi VIPs who were perceived by Crown Prince Mohammed to be potential bars to his being named the successor to King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who at 81 is nearing the end of his reign.

“Bin Talal, Waleed Al Ibrahim, chairman of Middle East Broadcasting Center, and Sales Kamal, owner of television channel ART and founder of the Dallah al Baraka Group (DBHC), one of the Middle East's largest conglomerates, were arrested along with Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, head of the National Guard and dozens of princes and former ministers in a new anti-corruption probe. Prince Miteb was once considered a contender for the throne. [source, Bin Talal Arested In Saudi Corruption Probe , Al Sabah]

Bin Talal in addition to being among the world’s richest businessmen, owns 5% of Twitter [the second highest stockholder] as well as having investments in other US entertainment enterprises including NewsCorp, the parent of Fox News and Time Warner. He conducts his business through Kingdom Holding Company.

We view Talal’s ownership of such a significant portion of NewsCorp’s stock to be one of the reasons why the network continues to push the ridiculous meme of lone-wolfism.

Equally troubling is the fact that Talal also founded the Georgetown Center for the Propagation of Jihad...err...Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.

This means that John Esposito, one of academe’s most influential purveyors of disinformation regarding the threat posed by Islam, should rightly be seen as a bin Talal puppet.

As to the matter the lone woolf…

It has become the normative meme across Western journalism that Muslims in some manner or form become motivated to commit mass casualty attacks because of outside influences such as online “radicalization.”

However when consulting primary source materials, in this case ISIS’ very slickly produced online magazine, “Inspire,” two things become clear immediately.

One, despite ISIS loss of physical territory in Syria and Iraq, it was always the group’s goal to create an ongoing, self-sustaining virtual caliphate.

In this goal ISIS has been entirely successful.

However, the second point may be even more important, in that in the following lecture delivered by Sheikh Abu Mus'ab Abdul Wadood [aka, Abdelmalek Droukdel] who leads the Algerian jihad [AQIM] he stresses that it is not in the nature of Islam or the Shari’a to think in narrow terms such as nationalism.

Rather, Muslims take a macro view of the organizational structure of their ideology and to them, the controlling entity - and the pool from which kinetic jihadists emerge - is the ummah, the entire global community of Muslims, somewhere in the range of 1 billion followers.

“There is little doubt that this type of Jihad enrages the disbelievers even more when a revert from their own race or nationality carries out such an operation… someone who had once been part of their community before Allah guided him to Islam and Jihad.

This is enraging for the enemies of Islam because it proves that Islam transcends their narrow nationalism and a Muslim’s loyalty is to his Religion and not to his homeland. This aspect is harder for them to digest than the operation itself, so let us reflect on it. This is one of the weak spots in which there is enragement of the disbelievers. It is a way of attaining great reward… {And Allah does not waste the reward of doers of good deeds}. So let us strive to attain this reward and possess the attribute of being doers of good deeds…” [source, Inspire Magazine, Issue 17]

Of note, the main thrust of Inspire 17 is to explore ideas and methods whereby U.S. and European passenger and frieght rail lines might be targeted. This is a chilling thought since railroads carry toxic and potentially highly explosive materials and 5 times as many people than do commercial aircraft.

In the best of all worlds, the jailing of bin Talal could be used as a lever to further tarnish the propaganda coming out of Georgetown and Esposito, but we do not expect all of these linkages to be covered anytime soon by the MSM.
