Five widows of victims who died in the 9/11 attacks published an op-ed in the print edition of The New York Times on Wednesday, condemning the U.S. government’s close alliance with the extremist Saudi monarchy.

“Saudi Arabia has spread its Wahhabi religion around the world for years. Its funding of madrassas and support of extremist clerics have paid and paved the way for the spread of deadly terrorism,” the women wrote.

“We should know, since our husbands were killed by Saudi hijackers on 9/11,” they added. “These men were well schooled in the Wahhabi belief of killing the infidels to further the Sunni Islamic cause.”

Wahhabism refers to the extremist sect of Islam spread by the Saudi monarchy. It is a minority tendency in the incredibly diverse religion, and many Muslims do not even consider Wahhabism to be a real form of Islam, arguing it is a distortion of the religion much like the strands of extreme, bigoted Christianity preached by fundamentalist groups like the Westboro Baptist Church or the Ku Klux Klan.

This has been an open secret since at least the 70's.The House Of Saud's backing and funding of Wahhabiism through out the world.Although nearly every country turns a blind eye and proclaims that Saudi Arabia is a "valuable" ally in the war on terror they fund these guys in hopes of making them someone else's problem knowing that as long as the rest of the world is dependent on their oil they will look the other way.

I don't think the Saudi government planned 9/11. That is the only problem with this.

They are simply the fall back Patsy the elite who did plan it could inevitably blame.

Whether one believes that Saudi Arabias officialdom had a hand in the 9/11 attacks or not, elements, powerful ones in their society, absolutely did. They paid for it, and many, many more events of a despicable nature to boot. Whether they paid for it on behalf of manipulators close to DC, or whether they paid for it off their own backs, the Saudi power base has an awful lot to answer for, and does not make for a nation with whom a decent people should align themselves. This means, of course, that the US government, and for that matter my nations government, should not have diplomatic ties with this nation, not participate in its efforts, until or unless the following things occur.

First, the Saudis who are paying for terrorism now must be rounded up and tried as traitors to the human species, under laws written under strictly secular conditions.

Second, the nation itself, and by extension its leadership, must deconstruct the bonds that tie religion to the law of the land with the rigidity that is seen at the moment. Freedom is paramount to any civilised society, and if there is no freedom in a land, the west should not deal with that land or any cohort of it (although, that would necessitate a far greater respect being paid to the concept of freedom and liberty by western powers, which might be tricky, since many western powers are currently in the process of dismantling liberty at every possible opportunity). In a land where a woman has virtually no proper rights, where a man can be beheaded for petty offences and speaking their mind as they ought to have a right to do, there cannot even be the pretence of freedom, and that accurately describes the situation in Saudi Arabia, ergo, western powers should not deal with that nation.

Third, Wahhabism must be abandoned in favour of a more traditional, less psychotic Islamic paradigm, because it is toxic, not only to Islam as a whole, but the species. That which threatens mankind as a species must be opposed. This species has a job of work to do, if it is to reach its potential, rather than be constantly craning its neck to see its loftiest peak, and among many other cultural sicknesses (like blind capitalism so entrenched as to value its continuation more highly than it does human life, or extreme socialism so rabid as to make all commerce impossible) Wahhabism threatens to hold back the whole species in a way that Islam, unfettered by the evils of Wahhabism, would not.

If these three key things are addressed, then Saudi Arabia would be a nation that anyone could do business with, absent any qualms about doing so. As it is however, the west should not be investing in, with, or with the assistance of the Saudi Arabian government, it's institutions, companies, or any company owned by or earning money for its citizens.

From the South East, the county of Essex to be more precise.

Please do not hold that against me. I know we have a reputation, but as with any generalisation, it does not hold for all the residents of the county!

No, just carried it out. 17 of the 21 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, right?

Theres your sign.

As far as our sensibilities , the Sauds behead more people than ISIS, ship US arms and fighters to various subversive insurgencies in the Middle East, are currently bombing Yemen with US manufactured arms and aircraft, and yet besides Israel, are the biggest ally of the west in that region.

Dual standard banner is up.

The fact that mostly all the hijackers were Saudi and we invaded Iraq while helping Saudi Arabia is all the proof you need the US population has been dumbed down to the point of no return. The citizens should have burned DC until we went after the right people but they did not. Will not. Too little too late.

But of course according to the MSM all this talk about The Saudi's supporting and paying off terrorists is just a nutty conspiracy theory.Completely ignoring the evidence and the fact this letter to the editors of the NYT came from The Jersey Girls.
