First of all, it is imperative to realise that the wealth of Saudi does not belong to Aal Saud but rather to the entire Islamic Ummah since oil is public property in Islam. The role of the state, be it an Islamic Khilafah or a secular Kufr state, is confined to overseeing the distribution of the wealth among the subjects.
However, the raison d’être of the depraved collaborators ruling the Muslims is to protect Western interests and prevent the Muslims from referring to their Shari’ah which would liberate them from international enslavement and steer them towards revival and prosperity, thus making them the world’s focus of attention.
Ever since it concluded a secret deal dubbed as the “Petro-dollar deal” with Saudi in 1974 through US Secretary of Treasury, William Simon, America has been controlling the fate of the masses, especially in the Islamic world. Were it not for Aal Saud, the US economy would collapse and return to civil wars to which she is doctrinally, demographically and nationalistically susceptible. Soon after the Petro-dollar agreement took effect, America faced a new debacle, namely her debt to Saudi which had accumulated from oil revenues in the form of bonds; this caused America a kind of strategic anxiety as the Saudi regime dared to verbally threaten to sell $750 billion of its debt in retaliation to the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) that holds Saudi responsible for the 9/11 attacks and allows the US administration to punish Saudi and compensate the victims of the attacks.
We cannot decisively affirm that the Jamal Khashoggi issue had been designed to either ensnare Saudi and twist her arm into writing off the US debts, although there are indications that suggest that the event could be exploited in that direction, or to blackmail Aal Saud in order to tackle the forthcoming economic challenges the US will be facing as recently forecast by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Although Donald Trump seems to adopt the official Saudi story on the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, or perhaps he is attempting to market it, the deep state in America however has been encouraging Turkey to incriminate Saudi; following Trump’s statement, US intelligence circles announced that they were in the possession of information incriminating Mohammed bin Salman in the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi.
For her part, Turkey is seeking to showcase herself to the international community as a state of law and order by tackling the issue in a political and professional manner that leads to incriminating Saudi in an attempt to win over the deep state in America. As for Europe, she has taken the “moral” bait and naively set about swimming with the American and Turkish tide by tightening the noose around Saudi’s neck so as to give her no choice but to submit to Trump and his blackmail.
