"The secret letter of the Saudi prince" - the threads lead to Qatar

13

This publication should be considered as one small episode of the hidden struggle between Qatar and Saudi Arabia for influence in the Middle East.


In the modern world, having basic knowledge of the work of the media (in particular, online media) and the necessary connections or opportunities, you can update almost any topic, while the excuse may well be contrived.

In the September 20, reports about a letter allegedly written by one of the Saudi princes began to spread on the Internet, in which he allegedly harshly criticized the policies of the ruling monarch, as well as the crown prince and minister of defense.

The first to inform about this was an English-language resource based in London, Middleeasteye. I am not a journalist, my principle of work is not to process the information provided, I focus more on the source and on the motives. From the very beginning, the presence of this “letter” caused doubts among a number of specialists. The letter seems to be there, but no one has seen it, the prince seems to be there too, but nobody knows his identity either. I think this, informational stuffing is aimed at the general public, a little delving into the essence of the issue.
Let's start with the resource Middleeasteye.net. He is headed by a British journalist, a former employee of The Guardian, David Hearst. There is evidence that the company that owns the resource is registered with a certain ethnic Palestinian Jamal Bassasso.

Mr. Bassaso is closely associated with certain circles in Qatar, in particular with the leadership of Al Jazeera, which as it is known belongs to the ruling Al Tani family, which, in turn, has, to put it mildly, tense relations with Saudis.

There is information that Middleeasteye is one of the resources serving the interests of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Jazeera, that is, in fact, the Al-Thani family. Among the resource staff there are also former employees of Al Jazeera. For example, Al Jazeera employee Jonathan Pavel (Jonathan Powell) has worked with Al Jazeera’s 2009 year.

The editor-in-chief of the publication, David Hearst, every time refuses to name financial sources, publications. Hurst argues that funding comes from private donors interested in democracy in the Middle East ...

I want to emphasize that the content of the editorial staff in the amount of more than 20 employees, an office in London and a network of freelancers is not a cheap pleasure.

This resource has also been blamed by the UAE authorities, in collaboration with the Muslim Brotherhood, and in unreasonable attacks and criticism of the UAE. I believe this publication should be considered as one small episode of the hidden struggle between Qatar and Saudi Arabia for influence in the Middle East.

However, this does not mean that there are no problems in the ruling Saudi dynasty, and there is complete mutual understanding and harmony, this is far from being the case. The Saudis are a big, even huge dynasty, which in turn is divided into clans. There are clans of the first echelon, for example, As-Sudayri is also less influential.
Among these clans, the struggle for economic superiority, for power, for a better position and lucrative positions in the kingdom is almost always going on. So far, all discontent and strife are settled by the royal council, which plays the role of the supreme court for the clans. He monitors the balance within the dynasty.

The fact that there are dissatisfied, believing that they got less than others is no secret for anyone. Sometimes external forces are trying to take advantage of this discontent.

      All modern terrorist rabble revolves around Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which share influence through the groupings organized by them

        I agree. I already got tired, reading about one mess and then about the other I met both Qatar and the SA as sponsors and organizers of the mess. One strange thing is that no one has yet pressed on the horns. Although, part of recent events tells me that everything is possible. And there, you look, and oil prices will rise a little wink

          Judging by the small flow of facts, it is possible to judge that some positions in ISIS are occupied by finance specialists, professional operators are involved in shooting executions, psychologists are involved in working with clients on the network. assistant is too influential

        The author wanted to report on the role of Qatar in financing Islamic radicalism and its relationship with the SA. But he did it kindly gently. smile This question is not even informative, I would call it philosophical, about the dangers of vast wealth. Such states, the first, cease to limit conscience in the desire for annihilation, the second, inflates the sense of self-importance to a universal scale, and the third, develops a rapid flow of overvalued ideas. What we observe among the kings of the Middle East. I’ve been waiting for twenty years when they will start fighting ..... I’ve waited.

        I think that there’s a bazaar stating that there is no unity in the kingdom)))
        And if you bet on “offended and deprived”, then you can seriously shake the Saudis.
        As practice shows, the principle of "Divide and Conquer" works without fail.
        The bullet with the letter, thrown through the media, is precisely aimed at the fact that they would start intra-clan fuss to find the "dissatisfied".
        I think so..

    Let's start with Middleeasteye.net. It is led by a British journalist and former The Guardian employee, David Hearst.

    Allegedly, the letter, allegedly by the prince, allegedly exposes. Where are the facts? One rhetoric. I also have a letter from the MOST FURHER TO MOST B.KH. OBAMA !! And there it is written ... Only I will not show it - the secret ... The article is empty.

    When "democracy" is sponsored by private individuals who do not want to show their face - this is not democracy, but a blood business project.

    Regardless of whether this letter exists or not, this is a positive reset for revealing the secrets of one of the most non-democratic, totalitarian regimes serving as the bedding of the United States.
    The country of Muslim shrines serves the crusaders who use it as a cheap whore.
