Saudi Arabia is considered to be a country plagued with a number of human rights violations, allied with the United States, they continue to face large amounts of criticism for refusing to take in any of the millions of Syrians currently fleeing their homeland in search for safety.
This is more so because Saudi Arabia has approximately 100,000 air-conditioned tents sitting empty on a giant plot of land, located approximately 2, 150 miles from Syria in the city of Mina. Apparently, they’re only used a few days a year to house pilgrims commuting to Mecca for hajj.
Why is this? Well, perhaps it’s because that this entire global war on terrorism is a United States undertaking, carried out by a number of countries that are obeying orders from Washington.
More people are starting to wake up to this possibility, and evidence showing that all of this activity is “based on fake premises,” and that “somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic State, when it fact the Islamic state is fully supported and financed by the Western military alliance and America’s allies in the Persian Gulf.”
One of those allies is Saudi Arabia.
The quote above comes from Dr. Michel Choissudovsky, a Canadian economist and professor emeritus at the University of Ottawa. He and many others expressed these concerns at the International Conference on the New World Order, which was organized and sponsored by the Perdana Global Peace Foundation. (source) (source)
It’s more convincing compared a reporter saying something on T.V., isn’t it?
What’s also interesting to note is that, according to mintpressnews, Saudi Arabia, Turkey & Qatar were involved in a secret anti-Syria plot, as exposed by Wikileaks.
This would make sense, it’s no secret that the western military alliance has destabilized, killed and basically taken over and destroyed a number of countries, and that’s not in the name of defence as they claim. As Vladimir Putin stated (president of Russia):
“It’s my deep belief that any actions to the contrary in order to destroy the legitimate government [of Syria] will create a situation which you can witness now in the other countries of the region or in other regions, for instance in Libya, where all the state institutions are disintegrated. We see a similar situation in Iraq.” – Vladimir Putin (source)
This plot was also brought to light by the United States, when four star United States Army General, the former Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO, stated that the plans to over-throw Iraq, Syria, and other countries has been laid out for a long time. You can watch that interview here as it was made many years ago.
I am sure that if you went into Saudi Arabia, and even into Israel, you would find a large group of the population wanting and willing to take these refugees in.
As we’ve seen before, governments, then above them the corporations, and then above them the big banks, IMF, Trilaterals, Bilderbergers and more, do not really speak for the people that they govern and dish out mass amounts of propaganda to.
So when you hear that Saudi Arabia is not accepting refugees, do not let that conjure up a stereotype of a Saudi Arabian citizen.
Although, as the Washington Post reports, wealthy Gulf Arab nations like Saudi Arabia have taken in zero Syrian refugees. Saudi Arabia has taken in half a million since 2011.
Lebanon, on the other hand, has accepted more than 1.3 million refugees, more than a quarter of its own population.
Keep in mind, Saudi Arabia gave four million Burmese permission on their land, Saudi health centers provide psychological services to some 1,400 patients a week In Zaatarl camp, Saudi Arabia provides share of Palestinian Authority budget and they donate tons of food for refugees in east-em Cameroon.
They are one of the largest international aid donors in the world and they do offer various programs for Syrians and Somalis, among other things. King Salman also recently doubles humanitarian aid to Yemen to more than $540 million.
Regardless, we must wake up to the reasons that this is happening in the first place, we have to identify it, because that’s the only way we can solve it.
How exactly are we going to do this, and dethrone those that sit atop the pyramid? I don’t know, but ignorance and ‘shutting up’ is definitely not the answer.
As mentioned above, this location is used to hose the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, and as true-activist mentions:
“Given that the Arabic concept of Ummah is supposed to offer protection to all Muslims under one brotherhood, surely an alternative location could be found so that Mina can be repurposed to house desperate families feeling war and ISIS persecution.”
