Not saying he won't walk,but if he does,that could be a big problem for the kingdom. Everyday people in SA are not over joyed with their king or his family. Jobs ,GOOD jobs go only to those that are related to them. If you have no ties with them,you are doomed to a life of struggle to make ends meet. At least that is what I have been told by Saudis I have known.Considering that punishment the people have to put up with,to let the prince walk it off may very well cause an uprising. That could be bad. For them.

He'll probably walk. My question is... how do they come up with their names? Are they really on their birth certificates like that (if they have birth certificates even, I don't know), or can they just arbitrarily change their names and call themselves whatever they want? Is it done for confusion purposes so it would be really hard to pin them down? Abdul al-Muhsen bin Walid bin Add al-Aziz Al Saub....Really?? I think it means Abdul from Museum who was son of Walid who was son of Add who was from Aziz. And now I'm lost.... Can anyone explain?

Actually, you nailed the gist of it. Though I'm not from there so it might be a little off. Their culture emphasizes their specific bloodline, so it's important to know who is who.

Every culture has different naming customs. In many eastern countries, the clan/family name is given first because the clan/family is more important than the individual. And in Western countries, the family/clan name is given last because the individual is more important than the family/clan. And some small cultures only give one name, though I don't know why (I guess everyone's assumed to be from the same line?).

Thanks for that info. It's still confusing to me. Why in the world do they have to go back so far? ? Maybe that's his princely title and they have to name then all for the crown, or whatever. The only thing know about their culture are divorce and marriage practices, and those are as weird and as lopsided as you can get.

What if this is just the guys personal stash? I've read someone on here stating the Royals from Saudi love their booze and drugs. What if he's not actually a smuggler, what if he just has a habit and likes to keep plenty in stock?


If that is private stock, its enough to make him a "very heavy" speed user (1g/day) for 4,964 years.

Its a shame. Maybe they will fix the aircraft so it has mechanical problems on its flight back home. It avoids the l legal system entirely if th e plane crashes due to poor matienence right?

Well there are thousands of members in the Saud family. I think 15,000 or so. There are at least several hundred princes & there might be at least 1,500.

I think they have to list that many names to know which line in the Saud family they're from. There are different factions within them. I believe Ibn Saud, the country's founder, had a marriage & and at least one child from each of the major clans he was allied with (with 52 children in total).

Edit: Just found a link saying all of his sons have the surname "bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud" & the daughters have the surname "bint Abdul Aziz Al Saud". So that should clear up that part of the names. Here's the article, which is titled with his very long name.

Abdul Aziz bin Abdul Rahman ibn Faisal Al Saud (Ibn Saud)

I've known people who sprinkle 6 grams on their cornflakes for breakfast ,
instead of sugar . And that's just to start the day.
'course they're dead now !

an amphetamine allegedly widely used among fighters in the Middle East

A very important point that you made.
ISIS fighters, most likely would be the intended end users... don't you think?



Yes, the identity of the drug is most interesting.

medium.com...

This article is from over a year ago.
Captagon is the drug fueling the mercenaries and terrorist armies across the middle East.

One article said they found 12 tons of it in Saudi before.
And a bunch of supply in Dubai as well.
It is an interesting thing to do, to follow a few older links about this stuff.

To me, the pervasiveness of this speed in the ME is another clue to the way events are being orchestrated there.

As such is the region's being flooded with arms, and the Saudis promotion of Wahabbism.

Saudi is is key ally in the Globalist plan to destabilize the ME.

9/11 NEVER FORGET

the daughters have the surname "bint Abdul Aziz Al Saud".


Hence the term 'bint'


From Arabic بِنْت ‎(bint, “girl, daughter”), used to denote a patronym.

The term entered the British lexicon during the occupation of Egypt at the end of the nineteenth century, where it was adopted by British soldiers to mean "girlfriend" or "bit on the side". It is used as a derogatory slang word in the United Kingdom, meaning 'woman' or 'girl'.


Thanks for the lead. Etymology is a useful and interesting tool.

My thoughts are that the drugs were destined to some sort of (para)military unit, as other members have suggested.

2 tons of pills were most likely for ISIS, they are known to chew amphetamine.

So, this arrest gives a kind of idea how the thing is done. Saudi royal family members fly stuff in and take it over to the ISIS or Al-Q or so. And perhaps get paid too, so they can fix the hefty casino bill from Monaco ...

I wondered where he'd got them from and can't find a story that tells us where the flight had come from. Seems like two tonnes of (apparently) branded medicines would need to purchased directly from the producer or a broker very close to the company.

There's a good photo of the boxes and they have labels although I can't say if they're brand labels.
