Dominance in the Middle East and Africa
Saudi Arabia has an outsized political influence in the Middle East and the rest of the world due to its vast oil reserves. However in 15 to 25 years these oilfields start to deplete, likewise its influence. Saudi Arabia doesn’t want that. It actually aims for much more influence, starting with ruling the Middle East. Its ‘Arab Spring’ target became Syria, a country with a big Shia population. Successfully, Saudi Arabia managed to damage the image of President Assad severely. He is now perceived in the Western world as a ruthless dictator. China, India and Russia have a more positive view of President Assad.
It is really difficult to see what is propaganda and true facts. Our point of view is that in Syria as well as in the Gulf States the court system has to become honest and fair. Torturing and other physical or mental mistreatments are out of the question. Political opponents, unless using arms, have to be respected and it has to be mutual. Countries, officials and other people who don’t respect this point of view have to be brought to justice accordingly. Heads of states should be not excluded from it.
Besides the above we all can know two things for sure. Syria under President Assad is a country with limited political freedom. In Syria is total freedom of religion. Ethnic minorities and the Sunni majority hold top positions in crucial government sectors.
The Gulf States and Saudi Arabia suppress most of these freedoms. The latter even beheads people if they speak up against the government. So not only Syria but also the Gulf States should be held accountable for inhuman imprisonments, lack of Human Rights and so on.
Despite its own horrible Human Rights record Saudi Arabia’s despotic regime started to demand regime change in Syria. Western politicians were easily persuaded to do the same. To support its dominance goal Saudi Arabia is also:
- Investing tens of billions of dollars in Wahhabi boarding schools, mosques and clerics in countries with a Muslim population for decades. Supported by its Gulf State allies, it has created Wahhabi and Salafi societies throughout the world.
- Supporting, directly and indirectly, Wahhabi and Salafi terrorism in the Middle East, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent. This terrorism is leading the violent opposition in strength and seize everywhere.
- Creating an investment fund of two trillion US dollars.
In 2015 Saudi Arabia, UAE and other Gulf State allies started to intervene in the civil war in Yemen. These countries support (ex-) President Hadi. In 2014 Hadi was elected President in a one-candidate election. The government happened to be weak and was not able to fight off terrorist groups Al Qaeda and ISIS. This weakness and the long existing tensions with the Houthi movement brought President Hadi down in a short civil war. The Houthis took over the Yemen Government.
Soon after Saudi Arabia and allies started to back ex-President Hadi, who had fled to Saudi Arabia. Then these allies started to bomb Yemen and invaded it with ground troops. The Saudis and allies also blocked any access over sea. This all resulted in: Severe famine, mass killings of civilians caused by the indiscriminate bombing of hospitals, schools and other civilian structures and in a stronger Al Qaeda and ISIS.
Mid-term, this strategy could deliver a decisive dominance in the Middle East, Africa and in the Indian Subcontinent. It will be paired with ongoing terrorism violence in countries with Wahhabism and Salafism followers. Countries like France, Germany, United Kingdom, Russia, Belgium, USA and so on.
The mistake was accepting Islamists at all, and the second was carrying weapons.

Looking back on what went wrong.
Benefits of Terrorism
Terrorists embrace and execute certain Wahhabi principles mercilessly. That’s why these barbaric terrorists slaughter nearly all males who don’t convert to Wahhabism. They rape or kill their wives and older children. The purpose of these dehumanizing abuses is to put a paralyzing fear in people. It makes them completely submissive and servile to Wahhabism. ISIS excels in it all to the benefit of the aspired Middle East dominance of the Saudi Kingdom.
In the Middle East and Africa are two big sects abusing the Islam religion as a pretext to gain the power to subdue people: Wahhabism and Salafism. These two sects contradict the principles of the Prophet Mohammed fundamental. For instance, Prophet Mohammed doesn’t allow killing unless out of self-defense. The sects, however, allow killing anyone who doesn’t submit to its sect. Therefore, these sects are not-Islamic, but an apostate and heretical.
The origins of Wahhabism are in Saudi Arabia. Salafism originated in Egypt. Current Salafism is designed by people like Qutb in the second half of the 20th century. It was imported by Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia used its enormous wealth to steer Salafism towards Wahhabism. Saudi Arabia succeeded very well in it. Salafism is nowadays the second ‘house’ sect of the Saud Kingdom. It is guided by the first principle of Wahhabism:
- Only Wahhabism (Salafism) followers are true believers in God. All others like Sunni Muslim, Shia Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Jew and other faiths are apostate. These non-believers can be killed.
The second main Wahhabism principle applies only to Wahhabi and people living within the jurisdiction of the Saudi Kingdom:
- The leader of the Saudi Dynastic clan possesses absolute authority over everybody and everything including the application of the law.
Founder Al Wahhab added to second point:
Those who do not conform to this view should be killed, their wives and daughters raped and their possessions confiscated.
Pact Ibn Saud and Al Wahhab
Back in 1744 Ibn Saud and Muhammad Al Wahhab put together the Wahhabi principles. The Saudi leader’s absolute power over people’s lives was despotically implemented in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Kingdom is nowadays repeating its despotic family history. But it doesn’t do the cruelties by itself anymore. Together with Turkey and its Gulf Sates allies, it funds Wahhabi and Salafi terrorists like Al Qaeda, ISIS, Al Islam, Al Sham. The number of active Wahhabi and Salafi terrorists goes towards 150.000. In conquered territory, terrorists set up the first Wahhabi principle. Often killing Muslims and others who don’t convert. Paving the way for the Saudi Kingdom and its allies.
Normal Muslims, which are 94% of the 1.5 billion Muslims, do not support the murderous teachings of Wahhabism, Salafism and the kingdom of Saud.
In 2013, the European Parliament identified Wahhabism and Salafism as the main source of global terrorism. The relationship between the Saudi Kingdom and both sects is obvious. Still, most Western politicians are intensifying their relationship with Saudi Arabia and its allies.
Therewith in fact supporting the funding of terrorists.
Clearly, the risks posed by Salafist/Wahhabi terrorism go far beyond the geographical scope of the Muslim world.
Saudi Arabia and allies convert
Muslims into Wahhabi terrorists
Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and UAE convert Muslims into Wahhabi with teachings that promote murderous violence. For decades, Saudi Arabia and these allies have financed Wahhabi boarding schools, mosques and clerics everywhere in the world. Wahhabi and Salafi clerics openly preach hate and violence against anybody not following their doctrine. It is turning people into terrorists.

Imagine, every day more young Muslims convert into murderous Wahhabi or Salafi. It has created embedded terrorists, so-called fifth columns, in all of our countries. President Erdogan tries the same with some ethnic Turkish European citizens, creating his own fifth columns in Europe.
The larger Wahhabi-Salafi terrorist groups Al Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram have branches and terrorist cells all over the world. They thrive on an increasing Wahhabi and Salafi population living in Western, African and Asian countries.
Wahhabi mosques all over the world are financed by Saudi Arabia. Many Islamists who are a threat to public safety come from these communities in Germany.

Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)
For some time already, it has become clear that Wahhabi or Salafi terrorists use chemical weapons in their attacks in Syria and Iraq, like Sarin and Chlorine gas. In December 2015, the German Government acknowledged that terrorists also have the capability of attacks with biological and small nuclear weapons. It is extremely dangerous because WMD’s can easily be transported and locally made. Just imagine a small nuclear bomb or gas attack on your shopping mall or at schools.

Middle East and Africa
Al Qaeda’s Al Nusra and ISIS are losing in Syria and Iraq at the moment. However, in Afghanistan the Taliban, Al Qaeda and ISIS are winning. The Taliban terrorists are part of the Deobandi sect. Saudi Arabia financed this sect and strongly influenced Deobandism with the Wahhabi principles. In Libya, ISIS and Al Qaeda are expanding. So terrorist wars in the Middle East and Africa will continue until the support of terrorism has halted completely.
Overview of Casualties
12 million Syrians have been displaced. The Iraq wars and terrorism have killed hundreds of thousands of people. Some estimates range over 1 million deaths with many more injured or mutilated. In Libya, 25.000 people died in the overthrow of Gadhafi. In Yemen are more than 25.000 casualties caused by the terrorists and Saudi Arabia and Gulf State allies.
12 million people displaced
Continued killings by Libyan factions, Al Qaeda, Al Shabaab and ISIS result in new victims every day. Boko Haram, a Salafi sect in Africa, has slaughtered more than 20.000 people in Nigeria and other Central African countries. It displaced 2 million people, which is the combined populations of Washington, Boston and Las Vegas.
The atrocities are gruesome. Beatings are normal. People are beheaded with knives or axes. Their heads are hung on fences or played football with. People are burned alive hanging on chains or otherwise. Blown up by a cord, shot in the head or elsewhere, drowned alive or crucified. Women and girls are raped repeatedly. In Syria and Iraq, girls are forced to marry terrorists temporarily. Then, their vaginas are stitched together to re-establish their virginity. Then a new forced temporary marriage to another terrorist takes place. This is repeated again and again. Schoolgirls in Africa are kidnapped to pleasure Boko Haram soldiers. Thousands of men, women, boys and girls are forced to experience this hell. Young children are brainwashed with murderous Wahhabism and Salafi teachings. Trained to become child soldiers. Taught who and how to kill.
