Welcome Back!

Saudi Arabia was the country of origin of 15 of the 19 hijackers on September 11, 2001

(Apr. 18, 2013) — The Post & Email has spoken with the executive director of the Forum for Middle East Understanding (FFMU) founded by Walid Shoebat, a former PLO member who is a reformed Christian.

At the time of our interview and as of this writing, FFMU Executive Director Keith Davies reported that Shoebat’s website, www.walidshoebat.com, was under attack, and the FFMU website also appears to be under attack.  Earlier today, this writer had read Shoebat’s website, which had contained photos, sidebars, articles and an embedded video of The Investigative Project on Terrorism’s Steve Emerson telling Sean Hannity on Wednesday night that a young Saudi national was set to be deported after having been named as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon explosions on Monday.

The Blaze is now reporting that the man might not be deported and that on Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refused to answer a question from a congressman on the matter.

Shoebat had first reported that the man, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, is part of a family linked to terror in the Middle East.  Davies told us that in Western cultures, a person whose family is involved in crime is considered innocent until proven guilty, but in the Middle East, “It’s a clan, like a gang.  Loyalty in Islam is very strong.”

Davies outlined the chain of events involving the Saudi national as follows:

1.  A Saudi national, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, was identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston explosions on Tuesday.

2.  Also on Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry had a meeting with the Saudi Foreign Minister which was expected to be open to the press but was closed at the last minute.

[Editor’s Note:  The Post & Email has inquired of the State Department why the meeting was made closed press and whether or not it had anything to do with the alleged deportation for Ali Alharbi and has not received a response as of press time.]

3.  Obama met with the Saudi Foreign Minister on Wednesday in a non-publicized meeting.

4.  An arrest in the Boston case had been “imminent” but never took place.

5.  The Obama regime is attempting to “whitewash” involvement in the crime by a Saudi national and has withdrawn the deportation order for Ali Alharbi.

Davies believes that a “deal” has been made between FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III and Obama to allow the man to go free and reported that Obama has now made the Boston investigation “classified.”

Davies told The Post & Email that his organization has worked with the FBI in the past, only to find that someone “at the highest levels” reneged on a promise to a reliable Middle Eastern informant.  The FBI “is as crooked as they come,” he said.  “They betrayed us on two different projects.”  He added that on “regular crime” investigations, the FBI often performs its job effectively.  He said that the “pressure-cooker” bombs used on Monday to maim and kill are “an Al-Qaeda-style operation,” although he could not say definitively who the perpetrators are at present.  In his opinion, the explosives and the manner in which they were detonated represent “the ideology of Islam,” which he said “people don’t want to admit.”

He reported that in 2001, there were approximately 6,000 Saudi Arabian students in the United States on student visas, and in 2013, there are 97,000, with another 6,000 Saudi nationals in the country on other types of visas.

The Forum for Middle East Understanding conducts physical rescues of Christians in danger in various Middle Eastern countries.  Davies told us that he knows “for a fact” that in order for a persecuted Christian in a Middle Eastern country to obtain a visa to come to the United States, he or she must “pay a bribe” to a State Department official, particularly if they reside in Pakistan.

Davis said that both political parties in Congress are “sold out to the Saudis” because of “oil and corruption.”


Update, April 19, 2013, 6:06 a.m. EDT:  Walid Shoebat’s website is partially restored today, but the content of his article regarding the Saudi Alharbi family was reproduced here.

  1. Obama Gave Saudis ‘Trusted Traveler Status!’
    “Travelers approved for the program can skip the normal Customs and Border Protection (CBP) lines…” (freedomoutpost.com, 3/22/2013.)
    Investigative journalist Tim Brown reported on March 22, 2013, some 24 days before the bombing in Boston, on the website freedomoutpost.com in the article headlined ‘DHS: Saudi Passengers to Get Trusted Traveler Status,’ that “…some officials question why the country merits such a benefit—which is similar to a theme park “fast pass” to avoid long lines—when other allies like Germany and France are not yet included.”
    “I think you have radical Wahhabism in certain elements in Saudi Arabia, and I think to be more lenient there than in other places would be a mistake,” said Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA), whose district lost more than 70 people during the attack on the Pentagon. “There were 15 [hijackers] from that country, and there is a lot taking place in that region.”
    “Some of the people who went back to Saudi Arabia through Guantanamo—we find that they are in battlefields in Afghanistan or some other place, so I don’t think it’s a good idea,” he added.
    Wolf reminds us that the Saudis obstructed former FBI Director Louis Freeh’s effort to investigate the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing by refusing to share information. So the Saudis have a long history of withholding information from America. “I think there has been a history of not cooperating,” Wolf said.
    Additionally, it was the Saudis that funded the madrassas along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, something that Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) said he would like to see the United States public education system modeled after, which paved the way for 9/11. This is also part of Representative Wolf’s concern.”
    “Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the agreement in January after meeting with Saudi Interior Minister Prince Mohammed bin Nayef.”

  2. Dear Sharon:

    I have included most of Walid’s info regarding the Boston massacre on my following blog:

    “Innocent” Saudi has ties to several Al-Qaeda Terrorists!

    God Bless Victims Of Boston Marathon-God Bless America!

    Semper Fi!
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Thank you. I have updated the article with the link.

  3. Because of TAQIYYA (art of deception and cultural camouflage) many cannot perceive what the perceptive maintain has happened: DHIMMITIZATION.

    The process of TRIUMPHALISM is slow but the end goal is total SUBJUGATION of the current majority cultural “world view” by that promoted by Islamists.

    Obama is clever…but not CLEVER enough to fool ALL Americans.

    His little curtsy to the Saudi King and his “57” state slip-up were REAL, but quirky enough that he could “taqiyyize” them.

    Hmmm Hmmm Hmmmm

    Patriots should believe Walid Shoebat when he tells us what he perceives. He is NOT the only one.

    Perhaps Orly’s 22 April Court appearance will shake America out of its self-elected cobwebs.

  4. My (would’ve been had I been elected President last year) VP had it right when he wrote to me, “What’s the use, nobody listens to us”.
    And he mentioned “Burn-out” and the physical AND mental toll it’s taken to constantly tell people the same thing (but in different ways) over and over again but they (our fellow citizens) can only say “Baaah! Baaah!”, which, translated, means “Ha ha! We won, you lost!”.
    Really now, how many times do we have to say that Obama’s a Muslim, the DOJ, as Homeland Security, pro-Muslim? That we’re importing millions of Muslims to be Obama’s Praetorian Guard? That this Sharia Law is a thing to be avoided at all cost?
    And then we have these Islamvilles scattered throughout our country which are, in reality, terrorist training camps (actually, they’re the very same training camps that we went to Afghanistan to destroy) and our FBI turns a blind eye.
    These neighborhood mosques are armories and our prisons Islam recruiting stations.
    Islamic schools who take our Federal dollars teach “Kill the Infidel”.
    Listen: we have Muslims in our military, anybody listen to us? Ft. Hood?
    LTC Terry Lakin was denied to defend himself in a Court Martial for just asking to see Obama’s Birth Certificate, and then, just before Lakin was released from prison, the White House dumps a FAKE Birth Certificate on us.
    We MUST deport each and every Muslim from our borders NOW if we’re to have any hope in keeping our Constitution our Law and, consequently, our country.
    Like a broken record, it is.
    Obama belongs in a cage down in Gitmo. Tell your friends.
