Zionist right-wingers applaud Bin Laden’s attacks on Saudi oil facilities

Feb 26 2006 Ultra-right Zionist group announces its support for Al Qaeda bombings of Saudi oil facilities

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: repeatedly urged Israel and the Western countries to destroy Saudi Arabian and Iranian oil facilities in retaliation for sponsoring Islamic terrorism. Oil accounts for 99% of Saudi GDP, and allows the flagship of Islam to spread aggressive Wahhabism worldwide. By procuring Saudi oil, the West finances anti-Western ideological and terrorist campaign.

With the end of the Cold War, Russia became more reliable and amenable oil supplier than Saudi Arabia. Opening the American market to Russian oil and closing it to Saudis is a task of strategic importance.

The group’s founder, anonymous Israeli politician known as Obadiah Shoher, wrote in his controversial book, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict: “Since Arab countries export nothing beside oil, only going after the oil wells can succeed… Even if the Saudis and Iranians stand by the Palestinians to the end, the end would come soon as those governments, starved of cash, fell to internal insurrection. No oil means no foreign support, and they would have to face Israel alone… The hike in oil prices that stifled the oil supply in 1974 was a function of Egyptian military strategy, and the Arabs left no doubt they were using oil as a weapon. So if a weapon, oil should be a target.”

After years of fruitless appeals to Israel and the West to disrupt Saudi oil production, is happy to see the Islamic radicals carrying out Israeli tasks.

Shoher warns that the Saudi bombings must be considered in the context of Bin Laden’s offer of truce. Years ago, Osama offered the West to convert, and himself as a spiritual guide. Then, he offered the West a truce. It is extremely unlikely that by attacking the Saudis Al Qaeda launched apocalyptic war on all fronts. In Shoher’s opinion, Bin Laden establishes his credibility as opponent of all things evil. He only needs such credibility if Al Qaeda prepares a major attack in the West, and Bin Laden had already shown that he tried every peaceful means.

The group formed around Obadiah Shoher’s manifesto, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict, and advocates realpolitik approaches to Arab-Israeli peace process. Yahoo and Google banned parts of website from advertising programs for “unacceptable content.”
