Video: History Of Saudi Arabia

[Hat-tip to Mark Alexander, who alerted me to this video about Wahhabism and Saudi Arabia]

About seven minutes in length:

YouTube Link, which has numerous comments

According to Dr. Tawfik Hamid, what the film doesn't mention is that the discovery of oil in Saudi Arabia reinforced Wahhabism as the Islamic doctrine which fulfills the will of Allah. Petro-Islam has been on the march for decades, and the West, funding its own destruction, is too stupid to recognize that fact.

Update: So much for Saudi's recent plan, from this source, with many internal links:
Our friends the Saudis' have withdrawn their support for the so-called 'Saudi plan,' ostensibly out of fear of attacks by Iran or al-Qaeda. Under the 'Saudi plan' the Arab states were to recognize Israel's 'right to exist' existence in return for Israel's full withdrawal to the June 4, 1967 borders and permitting 'Palestinian refugees' to resettle in Israel and destroy the Jewish state from within. Obviously, I do not consider the 'Saudi plan' a great loss, but the withdrawal of Saudi sponsorship from even a bare recognition of Israel's 'right to exist' ought to prove - if anyone still needs it proven - that the dispute between Israel and the Arab world is not over borders but over the very existence of a Jewish state in this region.
