Connect the Dots
Connect the Dots gives a broader idea why Wahhabi-Salafi terrorism got such a terrorizing grip on the world. It shows the entanglement of Saudi Kingdom’s goal for world dominance with terrorism. Some insight is given into why the majority of Western politicians is watching it and as a result thereof supports it.
Wahhabism, Salafism and Deobandism
Wahhabism and Salafism are more or less described as ‘house’ sects of the Saudi Kingdom. In our opinion, a third one can be added. At the end of the 20th century, the Saudi Kingdom incorporated Deobandism. It started with financing its schools, mosques and clerics. The teachings follow the Wahhabi curriculum and delivers Deobandi-Wahhabi followers like the Taliban. The Saudi Kingdom financed and supported the Taliban in conquering Afghanistan.
Misbelievers worshipping Al Wahhab’s murderous doctrines
Deobandism originated in India. It has spread to Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Originally it was not aggressive. However, influenced by Wahhabism, it started to follow its principles. Now Deobandism like Wahhabism and Salafism contradicts the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed fundamental. Prophet Mohammed: “Nobody is allowed to kill, only in self-defense.” “All who believe in God like Christian, Jew, Magis and Sabier and are people of virtues, don’t have to fear”. So people with other religions are believers and have to be respected. “A Muslim has to give shelter and food to any person in need whether he is Muslim or not. It’s not allowed to pressure this person into believing. His choice has to be respected.”
Just like Wahhabism and Salafism, Deobandism abuses Islam religion as a pretext for their quest for power. All three sects don’t follow the teachings and intentions of Prophet Mohammed. They are not Muslim. They are misbelievers who worship the murderous ideology of Al Wahhab.
Prophet Mohammed: Nobody is allowed to kill, only in self-defense.
In many countries with a Muslim population there moderate Islamic political parties. These political parties are more or less similar to Christian political parties in Europe. A problem that can arise with some of these parties is their negative interpretation of the Sharia law. A lack of tolerance towards other religions outside and within the Islam religion can also be a problem. However, the latter has happened in the past and still happens with some people who have a Christian or other religious background. Some western politicians also fit in this intolerance category.
Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates (UAE) invested tens of billions of dollars in Wahhabi boarding schools, mosques and clerics all over the world. In exchange for these investments, the Saudi Kingdom and their allies demand rejection of all other forms of Islam as well as other faiths. For nearly forty years it is going on. Resulting in tens of millions of Muslims converted to a radical and violent sect with the pretense to stand above the teachings of Prophet Mohammed. Followers are indoctrinated with the intolerant and murderous principles of Wahhabism. They have become the biggest source of fresh violent Wahhabi, Salafi and Deobandi terrorists. From these sects arise new sub-sects like Takfiris, Boko Haram, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Al Qaeda, ISIS and Lashkar-e-Taiba. They preach and execute Wahhabi, Salafi or Deobandi teachings actively.
The Muslim Brotherhood, very strong in Egypt, resembles Wahhabism to a certain extent, but aims for a theocratic state. It is also violent and intolerant but doesn’t have strong terrorist groups.
Nowadays, Wahhabi, Salafi, Muslim Brotherhood and Deobandi followers are everywhere in the world, practically ruling some areas in the Western world. They can be found in small and big cities. In Germany, there is a Sharia police. In Europe, USA, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent, their clerics openly preach hate and violence against anybody who doesn’t follow their teachings. Western governments subsidize the construction of mosques, only realizing afterward that these are taken over by Wahhabi, Muslim Brotherhood or Salafi clerics.
There are 1.5 billion Muslims. Only 6% of them have become Wahhabi, Salafi, Muslim Brotherhood and Deobandi followers. This is a small percentage, nevertheless a staggering 90 million are more or less radicalized sect members. Luckily, a lot of them are still passive followers.
90 million more or less
radicalized sect members
Only a much smaller part is actively expressing and practicing their teachings. They are very dangerous. They are the actual terrorists or the potential terrorists. Still, the source of more or less radicalized Wahhabi and alike is huge. The risk that millions of them will turn into terrorists is present. These followers are a potential threat to our civilization. In our opinion, they need to be de-radicalized in a thoroughly organized and respectful way.
No Freedom of Religion
Wahhabism only considers Wahhabi sect members as true. Muslims, like Shia, Sufi and Ahmadiyya, are apostates to them. Out of political considerations, Wahhabism still accepts moderate Sunnis and moderate Sunni-dominated countries. However, Wahhabi, Salafi and Deobandi clerics abroad push Muslims towards their extreme principles. Terrorists in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Africa force moderate Sunnis to bend to these murderous principles. If not, they will likely be killed and their wives and daughters raped and used as sex slaves. Is that really a choice?
Wahhabi, Salafi and Deobandi clerics abroad push Muslims towards their extreme principles
The Saudi Arabia Kingdom, supported by its Gulf State allies, is regularly escalating religious tensions between Wahhabi and Shia and other moderate interpretations of the Islam religion. It disapproves, demonizes and even demolishes relics of these Islam strains. Breaking ties with Iran is the latest escalation in the sectarian feud, confirming Saudi’s longstanding repulsion of long existing Islam interpretations and other religions. Christian churches, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist temples are forbidden in Saudi Arabia, without exception. Openly expressing a different faith is forbidden too. Conversion from Islam to another faith like Christianity is punished by death.
No Civil Rights
Wahhabism doesn’t allow free speech against the government of the Saudi King. Speaking up against it, even peacefully, is under risk of execution. This happened recently to Saudi Arabian Shia scholar Nimr al-Nimr, a prominent non-violence and civil rights promoter, who was beheaded. The Saudi Kingdom is despotic in nearly everything. It is one of the worst regimes in the world regarding human rights. Nevertheless, a lot of Western politicians look away and hypocritically engage actively with them. Money talks…
Wahhabism has a very un-Islamic disrespect and subordination of women and women's rights. Actually, Prophet Mohammed was the first one in the Western hemisphere who expressed the rights of women explicitly and abundantly. Wahhabism almost completely ignores these rights.
The religious interpretation by Wahhabi, Deobandi, Salafi and Muslim Brotherhood narrows the Sharia solely to punishment. Instead of reading it as a wake-up call and encouragement to do the morally right. They don't pair the Sharia with the ultimate believe in the goodness and love of God (Allah) for us, human beings. In its guidance intent, the Islam Sharia is quite similar to the Jewish Halacha.
Kingdom of Saud
Saudi Arabia has been pulling the strings in its pursuit for dominance and regime changes in the Middle East for decades. Why this behavior? What does the Saudi Kingdom want?
The Saudi clan was originally a small tribe located in Nejd in central Arabia. The emergence of the Saudi’s began around 1744 when Muhammad Ibn Saud joined forces with a local religious leader Abd al-Wahhab, the founder of Wahhabism. This alliance provided a powerful ideological driving force to expand the Saudi power base: Convert to Wahhabi ideology and submit to the absolute authority of the Saudi Kingdom or die and have your possessions confiscated. This very successful inhuman ideology remains the basis of the Saudi dynastic rule today.
In the 18th and 19th century, the Saudi clan conquered much of Arabia, but later lost it. Thousands of people in Arabia, Jordan and Iraq, were slaughtered under the Wahhabism banner in these centuries.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Saudi clan had become smarter and while conquering Arabia they used Wahhabi Ikhwan tribes to commit all their atrocities. Later, the Saudi’s army helped by the British, massacred the Ikhwan terrorists for becoming too independent.
Nowadays, the Saudi Kingdom has a wide arsenal of Wahhabi, Salafi and Deobandi terrorist groups: Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, Al Sham, Al Islam, Al Uma, ISIS/Daesh, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab and the Taliban. Different terrorist groups prevent a to big terrorist force from standing up against the absolute authority of the Saudi Kingdom. Moreover, if required, each of these ‘smaller’ forces can be easily bought or demonized and destroyed with help of the Western military, without having to harm the other terrorist groups. It maintains the credibility of the Saudi Kingdom to the rest of the world.
Dominance Goal Saudi Arabia
The short-term goal of the Saudi Kingdom supported by its allies is dominance in the Middle East.
Saudi Arabia and Kuwait want oil pipelines and Qatar a gas pipeline through Syria to Europe. Saudi Arabia also wants new oil reserves. Turkey also likes to have oil reserves. These are only available in Iraq, Libya and in the coastal waters of Syria and Lebanon. Lebanon has a big Shia force and is also, therefore, a target. Oil and gas pipelines to Ukraine and the Caucasus mean transit fees to Turkey. It creates independence from Russia.
This goal is much more difficult than originally thought in 2011. That’s why the Saudi Kingdom and its allies keep providing terrorists with weapons, so they can get President Bashar Assad of Syria removed.
In October 2014, US Vice President, Biden, expressed his frustration with the Saudi’s and its allies. He said: “The Turks, Saudis, Emiratis, they were so determined to take down Assad. They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad. Except that the people who were supplied were Al Nusra, Al Qaeda and extremist elements of jihadists from other parts of the world." Continuing: ”Where did all of this go?” “ISIS, who is Al Qaeda in Iraq, worked together with Al Nusra. We could not convince our colleagues to stop supplying them!”
Syria was a peaceful country. No underlying tensions. Al Qaeda was there from the 1st week. Assad said these were terrorists.” Why did nobody believe him? “The heads of the people were not open. A lot of it was steered by outsiders, namely the Gulf States.

Independency from Russia is an attractive geopolitical perspective for hegemonists in Europe and the USA. However, US policy regarding the Middle East and oil is then largely at the mercy of the Saudi Kingdom and Turkey.
The mid-term goal of Saudi Arabia is dominance in the Middle East, Africa and in the Indian Subcontinent in countries with a substantial Muslim population. Since 1975 Deobandism was influenced decisively by Wahhabism. Establishing Wahhabism doctrine in the Deobandi society of Pakistan has been very successful. In Pakistan are 35 million Deobandi. Step by step also the Deobandi society in India and Bangladesh became influenced.
The long term goal is dominance in the Muslim world and through this world dominance. Everywhere the Saudi Kingdom embedded potential terrorists with murderous Wahhabi-Salafi teachings given in madrassas and mosques. These potential terrorists have become active. That’s why we have regularly terrorist attacks outside of the Middle East. But this is just the beginning.
It shows Western and Eastern countries, that not giving in to the demands of Saudi Arabia and allies will cause terrorism and chaos. Turkey does the same. President Erdogan demands from the EU visa-free entrance for its citizens, including terrorists. If the EU doesn’t give in, he threatens to overflow Europe with refugees. That’s our future if we don’t stop these power hungry and terrorism supporting countries.
He believes in a radical Islamic solution to the problems in the region. The fact that terrorists are going to Europe, is part of Turkish policy.

Alliance with the USA
From the 20th century on, the Saudi clan understood that alliances with Western forces are a great opportunity to expand influence and power. The discovery of vast oil reserves in the Shi’ite region of Al-Ahsa in 1938 and its development gave the Saudi Kingdom leverage. Gradually it built up a strong alliance with the USA.
The USA, being its biggest oil client, gave the Saudi Kingdom the chance to increase its influence in world politics. The world dominance ambitions of most of the US political elite enabled the Saudi Kingdom to act as a cooperative subordinate. The Saudi’s managed to guide US policy for decades towards their own goals. The Saudi’s pushed for regime changes in Syria, Afghanistan (Soviet Union), Iraq (Saddam Hussein), Libya (Gadhafi) and Iran (overthrow government 1953/sanctions). Saudi Arabia and its allies were also successful in convincing the USA to provide so-called moderate terrorists with weapons. Weapons that upended in the hands of ISIS, Al Qaeda and others.
Over the last fifteen years Western politics has been more and more guided by the US. The EU became stronger in numbers but its influence decreased. It is truly a follower of the US, also in regards to the Middle East and North Africa.
Lack of Morality
Most of our western politicians and media elite are watching the Middle East holocaust unfold, just like they did with the Rwanda massacre. Some are ludicrously asserting that it would take thirty years to take out terrorists like ISIS. Former Defense Secretary L. Panetta said in USA Today “I think we’re looking at kind of a 30-year war.”
As a normal citizen, you keep asking yourself regularly: Where is their moral care for millions of children, women, elderly and men who are forced to undergo these atrocious ordeals? Their lives sacrificed on the altar of desired regime change by foreign governments supported by Western governments.
Sadly, we have to conclude that most of the western political and media elite have no genuine moral care. That’s why warmongering is happening.
Moderates and Hegemonists
Until recently, the political world was divided into two main streams: Left and Right. With the implosion of the Soviet Union and a diminishing blue collar workforce, it began to change. Nowadays, we have Moderates and Hegemonists, the latter are also called hawks. These cross the lines of, outdated but still existing, old left and right wing parties. In the USA, Democratic neo-liberals are teaming up with Republican neo-conservatives. In Europe the situation is more or less the same. In essence: Moderates stand for a balanced power sharing between countries and don’t want war. Hegemonists, the neo-conservative and neo-liberal stream, find themselves exceptional and want world domination for the USA and its partners by any means.
Terrorists are used against
Russia and China
They see China and Russia as their true enemies. They are proponents of using Wahhabi, Salafi and Deobandi terrorists against the interests of Russia and China, with no regards to the ‘collateral damage’. Hegemonists often call the 9/11 attacks and the attacks on Paris, Brussels and San Bernardino "a small price to pay for being a superpower". Actually they hand out world domination to Saudi Arabia and its allies. Take a look at Kosovo in Europe. The USA split it off from Serbia. For many years now there has been an ongoing stealth attempt by the Wahhabi sect to take over the moderate Muslim society of this Islamite country. Are hegemonists ignorant or just naive?
Currently, most leading EU politicians have hegemonistic views. The majority of the USA Congress is hegemonist. The USA administration is divided. President Obama carries that division frequently out. Sometimes he has a moderate stance, most of the times he has a hegemonistic one.
Syria was accused of the gas attack on Goutha in Damascus. President Obama changed his threat of airstrikes after being informed about the questionable guilt issue. In cooperation with President Putin, he managed to take the necessity of airstrikes away. His decision caught the Saudi Kingdom and the hegemonists off guard.
In cooperation with Putin, Obama removed sanctions on Iran despite strong opposition and feelings of being betrayed by the Saudi’s and the hegemonists. The anger of the Saudi’s resulted in a purposely crushed US oil shale industry. Achieved by deliberately increasing their oil output which made oil prices collapse. It's a clear warning to US political elite, that ignoring the interest of the Saudi Kingdom has consequences.
The Turkish who did that. It was the Turkish Intelligence. That Sarin was homemade. It was not the same that Bashar al-Assad’s army had in their stock.
Ray Mc Govern, former Daily Intelligence Briefings officer US President on Sarin Gas attacks in Damascus
In February 2016 Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir expressed his continued support for regime change by terrorists in Syria. The German magazine Der Spiegel asked him: Is Saudi Arabia in favor of supplying anti-aircraft missiles to the rebels? His answer: “Yes. We believe that introducing surface-to-air missiles in Syria is going to change the balance of power on the ground”. Obama understood the signal. He is giving in to the demands of Saudi Arabia and its allies to provide the terrorists with more weapons and portable rockets. Portable rockets that can also shoot down civil airplanes! Where is the common sense?
Nowadays, Obama is hesitant regarding the removal of Bashar Assad. The moderate in him will oppose it. The hegemonist in him will remove Assad. Who can tell the outcome? The State Department under John Kerry, his assistant secretaries and other hegemonists in the USA and Europe insist on removing Assad. President Putin opposes this firmly. He says that the Syrian people have to decide and not foreign powers.
The 12 million Syrian refugees and their needs are a big problem. Outside Syria, there are 4.5 million of them. Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Europe too, are flooded with refugees. A cause of refugees coming to Europe is the shortage of financial help of the Western world for refugee camps in the Middle East. It resulted in a lack of food, clothes and other things, forcing people to flee. Making it worse, thoughtless and incompetent EU politicians invited the refugees loudly without any preparations. It is madness to invite millions of people without thorough preparations. The huge amount of refugees has upset unprepared European citizens. The EU politicians discovered that they were unable to fulfill their promises of help and support for refugees. The situation is out of control. There is chaos, humiliation and panic. This is evil and criminal.
Confronted with soldiers, tear gas, barbed wire, roadblocks, freezing temperatures and rain
Imagine the horrors of the refugees: First invited, afterwards rejected and then confronted with soldiers, tear gas, barbed wire, roadblocks, freezing temperatures and rain. Then forced back to Turkey. An unbearable misery and disgusting experience.
The cooperation in the destruction of Syria is a cash cow for Turkey. ISIS, Al Qaeda, Qatar and Saudi Arabia are well-paying clients. The Syrian refugees produce Turkey six billion euros, delivered by the EU. In principle, the EU agreed that Turkey gets a visa-free entry for its citizens, terrorists included. A possible membership of the EU is another present. It is a fantastic reward for an immense murderous regime change attempt. However some of these arrangements between the EU and Turkey are since October 2016 not sure anymore.
