BEIRUT: The recently announced appointment of a "relatively mild" figure to lead Al-Qaeda in Saudi Arabia and the repeated Saudi crackdown on the group will lead to a breakthrough in the crisis that has destabilized the kingdom, according to an Islamist engaged in efforts to end the violence.
"They (Al-Qaeda leaders) failed to come up with clear objectives, which was why they were carrying out vengeful attacks rather than ones that would lead to political gains," said Qassem.
"Oufi is now a leader of the remnants of this damaged ship and those in it need help to survive. That's why the Saudi amnesty offer came at the right time," said Awaji.

At the right time? They think this is a breather and an opportunity to redefine what their group stands for? As far as I know the amnesty states they won't employ the death penalty, but all suspects will face trial., even if they surrender.
Someone needs a reality check.....
