If this isn’t reason enough to cut the head off the Saudi snake. then what? We should have taken out the Saudis after 9/11 along with Mecca and Medina. No matter how you twist the logic, the Saudis are the enemy.This story is a jaw dropper from an al qaeda commander for Europe’s new jihadist
Al Qaeda Commnader: Saudis funded Al-Qaeda mujahideen The Philadelphia Inquirer hat tiip rut
DOBOJ, Bosnia – For years, Saudi Arabia flatly denied it had provided money
and logistical support for Islamist militant groups that attacked Western
But that assertion is disputed by a former al-Qaeda commander who testified
in a United Nations war-crimes trial that his unit was funded by the Saudi High
Commission for Relief of Bosnia and Herzegovina, a government charity.
Ali Ahmed Ali Hamad, the former al-Qaeda fighter, gave the same account to
The Inquirer in an interview in this struggling city in the central Balkans.
"Because it was the biggest charity, [the commission] helped the mujaheddin
the most," Hamad said, adding that it had provided "everything a person needed
Hamad, 37, is expected to be called as a witness in a lawsuit filed by Cozen
O’Connor alleging that Saudi Arabia and affiliated charities financed al-Qaeda
and other terrorist groups as they geared up for the 9/11 attacks.
As a convicted terrorist, Hamad is an imperfect witness.
During the Balkans war, from 1992 to 1995, jihadists from North Africa and
the Middle East were accused of atrocities against indigenous Serbs and
This is who Bush is backing in recognizing the illegally declared independent Muslim Republic of Kosovo, a radical Islamic state in th heart of Europe.
Hamad admits having done "bad things" as an al-Qaeda fighter, and he is
serving a 10-year sentence in a Bosnian jail for his role in a 1997 Mostar
Yet Hamad’s account of his time in the Balkans went largely uncontroverted
during the U.N. trial, where he was a prosecution witness.
He contends that the Saudi High Commission, an agency of the Saudi
government, and other Islamic charities supported al-Qaeda-led units that
committed atrocities. Mujaheddin units, he said, recruited fighters, prepared
for battle, and financed their operations in the Balkans.
He said the Saudi High Commission had poured tens of millions of dollars into
mujaheddin units led by al-Qaeda operatives who fought with Osama bin Laden in

The charities also provided false identification, employment papers,
diplomatic plates and vehicles that permitted Islamic fighters to enter the
country and pass easily through military checkpoints, Hamad said.
Several charity offices, including those of the Saudi High Commission, were
led by former mujaheddin or al-Qaeda members, at least one of whom trained with
Hamad in an al-Qaeda camp in Afghanistan, he said.
Like other al-Qaeda fighters, Hamad said, he was an employee of the Saudi
High Commission for a time and traveled through the war zone in commission
vehicles with diplomatic plates.
