Saudi Arabia has become the centerpiece of the West’s presence in the Middle East. The West overlooked massive human rights abuses in the nation, as long as the Saudi government remained friendly with western elites. King Abdullah took the throne in August of 2005. During his reign, it is estimated that over 1000 people were executed by beheading, stoning, or firing squad. Sometimes the bodies of the deceased are crucified for a set number of days.

The donation was just the latest in the flood of similar assistance extended by various nations and international organizations for the thousands of people that were left homeless and starving by Yolanda, which lashed Central Philippines on November 8, leaving close to 4,000 people dead as of Monday morning. On behalf of the Philippine government, Tago thanked King Abdullah “for his generous contribution to the relief efforts for the Yolanda victims.” “The Kingdom and its people have long been kind hosts to Filipinos in the Kingdom.

A recap of recent events from different sources... This week, Obama cancelled a trip to the Taj Mahal so he could go pay his respects for King Abdullah in Saudi Arabia. He went to see the new King, Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud, who just happens to be named as a defendant in a law suit against Saudi Arabia brought about by 9/11 Families. Some of the people that accompanied him were John McCain (who loves the 9/11 Report which absolved the Saudi Arabian Government), James A. Baker (his law firm Baker Botts represented the Saudis against the 9/11 Families in a lawsuit), and Condoleezza Rice (who lied before the 9/11 Commission, and had an oil rig named after her). Michael Smerconish asked White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough about the 28 redacted pages of the Joint Congressional Inquiry Into 9/11, something the families have been fighting for the release of for years, and he said “well, this is obviously an issue that you have been working on for some time.

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo killings in France, U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry couldn't cut short his visit to India to show solidarity with 40 heads of state, Including Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu. Kerry said he "very much wanted to have been there but couldn't do so because of the commitment that I had here and it is important to keep these kinds of commitments." I find it interesting that the Secretary of State can't break "these kinds of commitments" speaking specifically of his meetings in India, yet the President apparently shares no such qualms in cutting his trip to India short by a day. Perhaps, after showing obeisance to King Abdullah by bowing at his first visit as the Head of State for the U.S.; President Obama felt it was more politically expedient to cut short the final day of his trip to India in order to meet with King Salman than it was to finish "these kinds of commitments" with regard to his Indian visit.

Two things caught my eye .One was a beautiful sword presented to him by his friends. Another was a Certificate of Excellence personally signed by Hillary Clinton awarded for more than fifty years of his service at the Riyadh American Embassy. As we all talked he told my dad that he had already made his Will regarding the inheritance. He said he had readied the papers nominating his wife as his pensioner. The huge mansion seemed to be longing for its flock..His children who have flown away to different lands in search of Rizq. I was glad I reminded them of their daughters. A happy visit it was indeed.

Brent rises after Saudi king dies, US crude falls NEW YORK: Brent crude rose on Friday on uncertainty over Saudi oil output following the death of King Abdullah, while US crude prices fell, with traders citing a reported build at the Cushing, Oklahoma storage hub and the partial shutdown of an Indiana refinery. Salman, the late king's brother and successor to the throne, is expected to continue OPEC's policy of keeping oil output steady to protect market share. Still, the transition should be bullish for Brent, said Bob Yawger of Mizuho Securities USA. "Any time there's uncertainty in the market, you tend to have support," he said. Brent was up 47 cents to trade at $48.99 by 12:50 p.m. EST (1750 GMT). It rose as high as $49.80 after reports of the Saudi king's death. US crude fell 49 cents to trade at $45.83. A trader said energy data provider Genscape estimated that US crude stockpiles in Cushing, Oklahoma, rose 2.7 million barrels in the week ending Tuesday.

Supreme Court to examine Oklahoma's lethal-injection protocol The Supreme Court announced on Friday that it will review Oklahoma's lethal-injection protocol, determining whether the state's current methods qualify as cruel and unusual punishment, which is constitutionally prohibited under the Eighth Amendment. Oklahoma has been under the microscope since the botched execution last year of Clayton Lockett. The justices will hear arguments in April — at least a month after three Oklahoma inmates who have filed the suit are currently scheduled for execution. The inmates' attorneys will likely try to have those executions stayed, pending the court's decision. [The Wall Street Journal] 2.

King Abdullah meets Pope Benedict XVI in 2007 at the Vatican
The trouble with a backward absolute monarchy in which the state is run like a family business is that secretive succession of power is prone to explosive petty rivalries. With no constitution or democratic system of governance, the House of Saud is vulnerable to power grabs based on perceived rightful lineage among hundreds of potential suitors. One of the many contradictions of the feudal kingdom is the practice of polygamy (multiple marriages) by the House of Saud. Ibn Saud, the founder of the state in 1933, is reckoned to have had 22 wives and more than 36 sons. They in turn have had sons - and all can claim some right to hereditary power. The late King Abdullah, who took over in 2005, is believed to have had 24 wives and at least four sons. Three of them, Princes Mutaib, Turki and Mishaal, hold positions of considerable power.
