The Suave Saudi Method
February 26, 2010: Saudi Arabia has become a center for research and
experimentation on how to halt, and reverse, Islamic radical activity.
Despite being the most "Islamic" nation on the planet, and, by law, the most
intolerant of other religions, the Saudi royal family has been working to
reform Islamic conservatives and radicals for over a century. They don't get
much credit for that, but it explains the many Saudi initiatives to detect
and rehabilitate Islamic radicals, and prevent Moslems from going that way
in the first place. The Saudis are using media and the religious
establishment (which is on the government payroll) to discredit Islamic
radicals. There is also a rehabilitation program for convicted or suspected
Islamic terrorists. While this gets criticized, because 10-20 percent of the
graduates go back to terrorism, the majority leave Islamic radicalism
behind. The reform effort has a big impact on discouraging young Arabs
considering Islamic radicalism.
The current enthusiasm for taking on Islamic radicalism began when terrorist
bombs began going off after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq. Al Qaeda
condemned Saudi Arabia for standing by and allowing this invasion of the
Middle East by non-Moslem troops. Al Qaeda began attacking Saudi targets,
Most Saudis promptly turned on the terrorists, and most of these Islamic
radicals fled the country. The Saudis gave Interpol the names of these
terrorists, and asked for help in tracking down these men. The Saudis were
not happy with the lack of cooperation from Syria and Yemen in tracking down
Islamic radicals. Yemen has since turned around, but the Syrians, largely
because of their alliance with Iran, have dragged their feet. In the four
years after 2003, nearly two hundred people died in Saudi Arabia as a result
of Islamic terrorism, and most Saudis remained hostile to Islamic radicalism
because of this. In those four years, the Saudis basically destroyed al
Qaeda within the kingdom.

However, many Saudis blame the United States for all this, seeing the
invasion of Iraq as creating an opportunity for Islamic terrorists to
increase recruiting, and gain practical experience in carrying out attacks
in Iraq. The surviving Saudi terrorists then came home, along with their
deadly skills. But the Saudis were able to control the Islamic terrorists,
and do not see them as the principal threat. That would be the growing
influence of Shia Iran among the Shia Arabs of southern Iraq, and eastern
Saudi Arabia (and the other Arab Gulf states.) Saudi Arabia has always made
it clear that it preferred someone like Saddam Hussein (a Sunni Arab
dictator) running Iraq, rather than a democracy that would allow the Shia
Arab majority to rule. Saddam provided a more reliable ally against Iran,
which is a nation of non-Arabs (Iranians are Indo-Europeans), who practice a
variant of mainstream Sunni Islam.

Saudis are also reluctant to admit that their country is still a major
source of support for Islamic terrorism. While the Saudis have cracked down
on Islamic radicals in schools and mosques, as well as trying to prevent
financial contributions to terrorist causes, much support for Islamic
radicals still comes from Saudi Arabia. The Saudis also downplayed the
participation of young Saudis in terrorist operations in Iraq. The Saudis
insisted that few of the foreign terrorists in Iraq were Saudis. But
captured al Qaeda records, showed that, during the peak years (2005-7), some
40 percent of foreign terrorists in Iraq were Saudi. Evidence like this gave
the anti-terrorist factions in the kingdom more clout. The Saudis were able
to shut down public preaching by pro-terrorist clergy, and went after
wealthy Saudis that were using their businesses to pass money on to "Islamic
charities" that were actually fronts for Islamic terrorist fund raising.

Many Saudis still cannot believe that 79 percent of the 911 terrorists were
Saudis. The ruling family believes it, and is heavily funding the Arab
Reform Movement, which insists that the social, economic and political
problems in the Arab world are internal, not the result of foreign
interference. This might appear to be an odd thing for the Saudi monarchy to
get behind. But the Saud family did not come to found the kingdom back in
the 1920s, by ignoring reality. The Saudi royals may appear a bit medieval
to Westerners, but that's only because they must get along with some pretty
old-school groups. The Saudis believe that it's best to keep talking to your
enemies, even if you might have to turn around and kill them eventually.
