"This is press play on W I'm Madeleine brand the hajj. For months. There has been speculation about the annual pilgrimage to Islam's holiest site of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. 2.5 1,000,000 Muslims participated last year. Well. This week, Saudi Arabia announced that only 1000 pilgrims will be allowed to make the journey this year, none from outside the kingdom, so it's effectively canceled from anyone outside Saudi Arabia. It is yet another economic blow to Saudi Arabia, already suffering from low oil prices, and that could impede Crown Prince Mohammed bin Someones plans to move beyond oil and turned his country into a global economic player. NBS has spent years consolidating his power, silencing dissidents and even jailing his own mother along the way. Ben Hubbard writes about the life of the man in line to rule Saudi Arabia for the next half century. In his new book, It's called NBS, the Rise to power of Mohammad Bin Salman and I spoke with Van Who's the Beirut bureau chief for the New York Times a few months ago. Right. So NBS is young, Relatively speaking. He's 34 years old, and the King has lots of sons who were in line. When did he become? The clear favorite to become the next ruler. Well, one of the problems with Saudi Arabia you know, with understanding issues like this in Saudi Arabia is that this is an absolute monarchy. And so it's not like the King is ever going to sit down for an interview and explain Why he decided to choose this particular one of his sons. Many of his older sons are, I think, in a traditional sense, much, much more accomplished. They studied in the West. One of them was one of the first he was the first Arab astronaut. Another one. Another one has a PhD from Oxford. They're very, very accomplished. NBS doesn't have any of these qualifications. His background was almost entirely inside the kingdom got a law degree at a Saudi university, and then you basically went to his father, and so you know, we we don't really know exactly why the decision was made, but it's clear from what we do know that he was very, very close to his father. He basically shadowed his father for many years. And his father came to trust him greatly. And so when it came time to choose among his son's the one who would inherit his power, he chose MBIA's Well, the Saudi royal family is famously wealthy and some of the princes are well, they live quite extravagant lifestyles. Where would you put NBS in this? Is he one of those that likes to flaunt his wealth? Well, he started out not particularly wealthy. His father was not known to be a super wealthy prince didn't have a lot of business interests, and neither did NBS. But soon after his father became king, we see him kind of gone. This buying spree where your money comes out of nowhere, and he's you know, in a very short period of time, he makes a number of significant acquisitions. The famous one is this yacht, the serene Which he bought Actually, from a from a Russian vodka magnate, and it cost you know, just under half a $1,000,000,000. He apparently saw it floating off the southern coast of France while he was on vacation and said, I want that boat. So he sent his some of his aides to go down the negotiated and the ink was dry quite quickly. That same day. A very nice place. It's I forget how many levels it is, but it has speed boats and as a grand piano. I think it has a climbing wall. There's a Jacuzzi on one of the top decks that you can hang out in and out. You know, he spends a lot of time on the yacht floating in the Red Sea. You know his other famous purchases, he bought a gigantic palace outside of Paris, which is known as the world's most expensive home. You know, he was also it was leaked that he was the buyer of the You know, famous Leonardo Da Vinci painting at Christie's auction house. Now the Saudis and Mohammed bin Salman have denied up and down that he was the one that Got it. But pretty much everyone still believe that he did. So you know, from somewhat lower ranks in terms of money in the royal family, he very much rocketed to the top and started dropping these huge sums on things. And so initially NBS he's seen as what as you say. He's sort of a unknown quantity. Ah, here in the West. Initially, How is he seen in Saudi Arabia? Well, Saudi Arabia, you know, kind of depends on who you're talking to. I think it took people a little bit of time to realize what a force the sky wass, but it became clear very quickly that he was out to do things that nobody had done before. You know, within a few months of you know his father becoming king. He becomes the defense minister, which puts him in charge of the military and he launches a new military intervention in Yemen. Saudi had never really been a not kind of a war before. He starts talking about how important it is to diversify the Saudi economy away from oil. Then he starts talking about how he wants to change Saudi society, and he wants women to drive and he wants to bring in entertainment and all of these things that Saudi Arabia had never been known for, and so It became clear pretty quickly that this was a young man with big plans who would not gonna waste any time and trying to do what he wanted to do Right? So he went on. That famous charm offensive He came here to Los Angeles is part of that, where he really wanted to sell this new version of Saudi Arabia to the West that They were democratizing in a way, or at least opening up and liberalizing some of these old constraints, letting women drive and they wanted movies in the kingdom and popular music and they wanted to Open it up for more business as you say, privatized the national oil company..

"Long time. This opposes big problems because it crunches the state budget it makes. It gives him less money to do a lot of the reforms and things that he wants to do inside the country and anyway so he more recently wants to steal starts talking to Russia. About how are we going to keep the price up? Let's come to some kind of agreement and this had worked for a while. I mean for the last few years they had sort of considered Russia. You know at sort of defacto member of OPEC you can almost say. They were agreeing on production concert production levels just to try to keep the price up and and it was working and then you know. Nba just basically decided. We need to take more steps to get the price up. He starts making outreach to the Russians. What do we do production costs? We ought to do this do that. The Russians do mirror. I don't know we're going to think about it. Let's see they talked to them again. Well let's see and then finding the Russians say no. We're not interested in so and BS basically does exactly the opposite thing. He says okay. Well then we're going to boost production and output and we're GONNA crash the price and that's exactly what happened and here. We are so what happens from here from him. He's made so many errors. I mean. These errors are really quite massive. A war a murder. You know boxing all kinds of advantages like you said. What's it called one in the goal or you want in your own goal of some own-goal own-goal thing. He's doing this all the time. All kinds of stories I hear about him are talk about someone who super twitchy loves video. Gains doesn't have an attention span of a GNAT essentially the people who've met with them in Silicon Valley nonetheless. They continue to accept his money was wine on the Vision Fund which is money over What happens is there any repercussions for this or I don't see it in Silicon Valley. I don't see them. There's a little a- among some start ups for example or some like I don't want that Saudi money anymore do you imagine that he'll get it right at some point though he doesn't certainly deserve it Given the his behavior so far But a lot of people I know who are quite worried about his demeanor and all kinds of you know talk about his the way. He behaves away his again. His attention span is ability to understand things. The kind of people. He's that he has around him. That are weak. Obviously Week and and sort of yes men. Where do you see this going? This is the most critical country in the Middle East except for Israel. I I'd correct. I mean if if people were expecting that the murder of Jamal Hushovd you was GonNa Cause King Solomon to remove BS and send them back to you know send them out to the ranch and say oh come try somebody else. That obviously didn't happen and so if that didn't do it and all these other things didn't do it. I don't think there's any reason to believe that. The king is suddenly going to change his mind and do it and I think from what from the best information we have from the situation in Saudi Arabia. I think that there's no reason to believe that. When his father dies he's not going to become king and that he could be king for many many decades? I mean if he lives to be as old as his father is he'll be king into the two thousand sixty s so this guy is going to remain there for a very long time and I think the conversations you're talking about the Silicon Valley people are having. You're you're hearing all over the place I mean I hear it from people in the US government people in the UK government people around the Middle East and various governments. Here who are watching this guy and and wondering I think the big question everybody is asking is really. Is He learning from his mistakes does he? Sort of look at the Yemen war and all of this civilian deaths all of the money wasted and the lack of anything kind of approaching victory and say Yeah maybe we could have done that better. Does he look at the Jamaica. Shoji thing and say like wow. We really screwed that up and we really like ruined my international reputation like yeah. Maybe we shouldn't. Maybe we should just let the Guy Right as newspaper coms like what's the big deal you know. Does he look at sort of lock up at the Ritz? Does he look up at the kidnapping of Haredi and say wow? This really made people who were thinking about doing business in Saudi Arabia. Scratch their heads and say wow. Do I want to deal with this like do? I want to take on this amount of risk if I'M GONNA take my business to Saudi Arabia and and I mean I don't I don't know the answer but I think the big question is is he learning and does he consider these mistakes He is now thirty four years old. Which is incredibly young You know there's a possibility that he will learn from them and he will grow into being a wiser sort of more seasoned monarch. And there's also a possibility that it's just gonNa be a wild wild ride from here on out that like every year or two. There's just GONNA be like a new crazy thing that that he does that. You know tanks the world oil price or locks up more people for this or that or hack somebody else's some other famous person cell phone and we just don't really know but that's that's really the question is is he learning from these things or is he not so last question. The trump administration and NBS are quite close included. Especially Jared Kushner. They apparently have this weird special relationships close. Would that change in another administration or will it be like look? We need these guys now. As long as we need their oil and their money and we WANNA sell them. Things like weapons systems do magic changing in any administration or is this unusual. Well I think this is definitely unusual. kind of you know if if if. I had done some of these things under a Barack Obama Administration. I don't think that he would have received as much cover as he did. From the trump administration. No because I don't WanNa make it sound like the Obama Administration the Obama Administration and they still sold tens of billions of dollars in arms to Saudi Arabia while the Yemen war was going on. So I don't WanNa make it sound like Obama was really tough on. Mba Us all the time but when you look at the kind of cover that trump gave him after. The murder of Jamal showed you. It would have been very. It's difficult to imagine Obama doing the same thing. I don't want to speculate too much about future administrations but I think what it's because we don't know we don't know who it's going to be but I think it's fair to say that a that. His relationship with trump is quite exceptional and that the anger at NBS is vast inside of the US government. Probably bigger than we've seen. Maybe since I don't know I think it surpasses nine eleven because that was a different thing. Maybe it goes back to. The you know the nineteen seventies in the oil bar embargo. I wasn't really around then and so I don't know how how much anger there was. But he's dump thinks that have angered the CIA. He's somethings that have angered a lot of people at the State Department career people. He's done things that have angered people in both houses of Congress and in both parties. You know you look at the number of times that Congress people have come together to try to pass legislation to stop the arm sales to Yemen. We're not talking to. This is for once not a bipartisan. Issue of AP Republican. You know Lindsey Graham has become a huge critic of 'em bs so this is not a partisan issue and you know in the democratic before the Democratic Field. Really thin down. You had basically nobody who was going to say anything nice about MB s you know. Nobody was really going to stand up and say yes. These people are important for us and we look forward to selling arms and I could be wrong. You know I mean the US. Same Time we've been dealing with dictators for a very long time and you know it's part of the way that we do business but it is yeah. It will be surprising the first time we see say. Let's say that you know we have a Democratic president. Will THIS PERSON BE? As willing? As Donald Trump to invite Mohammed bin Salman into the Oval Office for a photo op. I duNNo. Nbs will. Will he feel comfortable coming to Pennsylvania Avenue when you might have protests are show upside holding saws and pictures of Jamaica Shoghi? He might decide to pass. He might decide that you know. That's not worth the news coverage So I think in that way were definitely were definitely in a new era in terms of the way that sort of I'd say the broader US government see Saudi Arabia and that could very well be reflected in the new administration if there is one aright should silicon valley accepting the amount of money. It is from this guy. Oh you know. I can't take that question. I'm not an opinion. I'm a report or no. I don't think they should will they? Well I think I think the interesting question is. What is the risk premium? And how does that factor into their calculation like if M B S Had? Just been the first guy that we talked about in the early part of the interview if he'd been the guy who gave women the right to drive and brought movie theaters and loosened the social codes. Then I think Silicon Valley would love this. You know they would love to go. Let's go set up a thing in NEOM. Let's go you know. Facebook's can open an office they they probably would have been more than happy to be on board with this and I think he on the city of the future. Just let's say the city it's their city of the future sooner. The future supposed to cost five hundred billion dollars going to be sort of staffed by robots and fuelled by solar power. And you know this is. This is his pie in the sky project for the future. I think that what all these companies have now is. They have a risk premium that they have to take into account that they didn't have before and everybody who thinks about it. They said Oh wow Saudi Arabia. There's a lot of money there you know. We could really make a lot of money. But do we really want it on our website that we're like in business with these guys you know as Human Rights Watch gonNA come after US or other human you know. Other activists can criticize us. Is that going to hurt our business model and other parts of the world and you know that for me is the interesting question. I mean you know. They're not just going to say we don't like Saudi Arabia. We're not GONNA do business there but for me. The more interesting question is how that affects their calculus when they're trying to decide whether it's worth getting on a plane flying. Saudi Arabia opening an office putting some money into a business or not. I just think that all of these things that he's done have made that much harder decision for these people to make than it would have been otherwise one hundred percent. You're not gonna see a tour Google anytime soon. I would imagine unlikely unlikely unlikely. And then again since you mentioned the last thing this neom project is it just a fan like Mirage hate to use a desert metaphor but is it just a mirage or is there real technology behind us. Oh I don't know we're going to have to wait and see I mean just to give a sense for what this thing is. I mean you know Mohammed bin Salman announced this in late. Two thousand seventeen surprises everybody at this investment conferences. We're going to build. This thing is going to be. You know we're going to spend five hundred billion dollars. We're GONNA have business. People write the regulations in order to encourage investment to encourage growth into converge innovation. We're going to you know It's GonNa be you know they. I mean some of the language in the documents is incredible. He basically said we're going to create a new way for humanity to live like this is not just a development project you know like a new housing development or something. I no no no. This is supposed to be like a new model for humanity. That's the way that they're thinking about it then. There was a Wall Street Journal. Got Some amazing internal documents about this. That really you know at the beginning. A lot of us like okay. Well we'll see you know. Good Luck with that Wall Street Journal. Got Some amazing documents where you know they're talking about. Nbs really wanted to have a beach with glow in the dark sand yeah and they sort of godly scientists together to figure out like wow. Is there a safe way to make low in the dark sand and I don't know if we can really do it you know he wanted to? Have you know a fake moon? That would rise over Neelam at night. That would be hoisted into the air by drones and you know Saudi wants to be won by robots and wants to have solar energy. I mean Saudi. Arabia is the world's largest oil producer. They they don't really have any history with solar energy sake. Sure they can buy these things from Barat but they don't have any history with the stuff robots. I mean. I would be surprised if you know one of the major. Saudi universities even has a robotics program. But they're not known for producing robots. So they're going to have to buy all this stuff so you don't will it turn on it but again like if he had not done all this crazy stuff that made people sort of hesitate to be associated with him and with Saudi Arabia? Neil would have been a lot easier. Now it's GonNa be really hard. It's going to be really hard to convince the people who do have those skills and who own those technologies to move to Saudi Arabia and live in this weird place out in the middle of the desert and try to build this. This sort of Saudi Arabian Xanadu right. So I don't know we'll see where it goes you know. Maybe he'll surprise us and in twenty years we'll say oh my Gods Neelam. It's amazing I'm going to go out on a limb.

"You're listening to the foreign desk on monocle. Twenty four still with me. Are Ali Ahmed and Laura James in the second part of the show? I want to talk a bit more again. So far as we understand about where. Nbs thinks he's going with all this. And I guess we should stop this part of the show by addressing another fundamental question. Which will put to you? Laura which is how certain actually is it that he will be the next king of Saudi Arabia as things stand. It seems that there's no other possibility is very effectively quashed all domestic opposition. He has control of all of the levers of power in the country. This latest move against the remaining family members. He might conceivably put forward a threat. I didn't think they were very advanced necessarily in coup-plotting but they were the possible centers of at least criticism. That's just finished off. What was already fairly. Well ruled out the possibility of anyone challenging him because he controls security forces he controls the economic levers of power. So I think that a nestling very dramatic changes in the country. I don't think there's another option apart from his eventual succession Ali as we've been discussing. Nbs has been willing to exhibit extraordinarily ruthlessness in grasping power and maintaining power. Do we understand what he wants? That power four does he have a vision of Saudi Arabia. If for example he becomes king in the next year or two. He will still only be in his mid thirties if he lives as long as many of his relatives he may rule over. Saudi Arabia for half a century. What would he won't country to look like at the end of that. What you will see is a shift from horizontal transfer of power from brother to brother or brother cousin or cousin to cousin to father to son so it is going to be vertical system. Where Hamad bin Salman will hand the power to one of his sons and this will happen immediately maybe after King Solomon dies which. I don't think he will die anytime soon. He is in very good health except for the problem. He has with early dementia. He doesn't have any serious illness although he's eighty four you never know but It will become a vertical monarchy and because Muhammad surmise right. You cannot have thirty. Four hundred thousand members rolling family all vying for power and so I think he will take extre even more measures in terms of slimming down the ruling family to his own offspring. It's not sustainable to have so many people with titles and benefits and they are parasites on the state and it's you know it's economy and its power and it is. Kinda run if if he does not basically cut the cord and I think he will will that give Saudi Arabia which will give it extra time to survive but after all we are in the twenty century. It's very hard for any population to live under certain type of despotic rule. And they would. They would fight. Data clear indirectly Laura given everything ally has just laid out there for all that. Mbbs has attempted to present himself as a reformer as a modernizer is Saudi Arabia in. Its present form actually modernize -able or reformer bowl interesting because it depends what you mean by reform. Nps basically said Saudi Arabia urgently needs economic reform and to enable that to some extent it needs social reform. I miss my way. We're going to get it if I do what? The West calls political reform so he centralized power in political terms to try and push through this economic agenda. You lost how he sees the country in fifty s time and I would suggest that probably what he thinks is. I need still to be a country in fifty years time but going the way that Saudi Arabia was going it was not clear. A tool kind of future could happen. Post-oil era was simply nothing happening it would be a desert on economic activity would be lacking and strategic importance anymore. So I think that what he's doing is he's trying to push forward economic reform agenda which will enable that still to be country. He's saying well apart from that. Reform is an obstacle. But I think that the problem which we've already mentioned is that the economic reform agenda doesn't necessarily seem to be working. Neither was the previous model of course but that doesn't mean that he's to succeed with this one Ali. It is a curiosity or a paradox of tyrants they are still nonetheless somewhat dependent on the consent of the subjects how patient especially that young up and coming Saudi generation who had much greater exposure to engagement with the outside world than previous Saudi generations. How patient are they going to be with? Nbs to deliver the kind of Saudi Arabia that people of NBS's age and even younger might prefer to live in. I don't. He has a lot of support among the younger generation. And this is because it's you have very high degree of oppression. People are not in liberty to speak their mind given that environment you have the largest exodus of young people from Saudi Arabia to Western countries. That didn't happen. Any other. King happened under Hamad bin Salman and that said these are mostly young men and women who have their from people who call themselves ex. Muslims who call themselves L. G. D. people who became Christians and people who audaciously devout following there were hobby that you know the state religion is just because we have a problem with coverage in that country. We have maybe favorable western media that covers Salman Saudi Arabia historically so you are not aware of the amount of anger. The thing is what we see if you take a total of what ambience has done over the past few years most of what was called reform is about opening cinema or cafe. The reality is that this allstate controlled the concerts state controlled you when you bring in Mariah Carey and all these singers and pay them huge amount of money. But you do not have an any of universities anyplace to learn music. There is no department in any Saudi University to learn playwright or drama or film making these other forms that you should look for not allowing cinemas to open. That's good but it does not really give those people in that advantages that jobs that they need he should allow these business people and young people to have their startups and give them the economic freedom. If you give them your freedom singer will move otherwise. I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel. Elliott Armored Laura James. Thank you both very much for joining.

"It is easy to forget that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz. Al Sowed is not actually technically ruler of Saudi Arabia. That title belongs formerly to his elderly Father King Salman however since his appointment as crown prince in two thousand seventeen. It has been widely understood that. Nbs often known is the heir designate. Power behind the throne and at the age of thirty four very much the future of Saudi Arabia in this unofficial role mb has furnished considerable cause for concern he has overseen a terrible onslaught against Yemen and a blockade of Qatar. Neither of which appear to have accomplished much. He has interred dozens of his fellow royalty. For a time in a Ritz hotel and more or less kidnapped the prime minister of Lebanon perhaps most infamously. Nbs is widely supposed responsible for the murder of Washington. Post columnist. Jamal Khashoggi even by those standards. This week's palace intrigue in Riyadh is remarkable. Several members of the court appear to have been arrested at MBA's instruction including one of his uncles and one of his cousins dozens more army officers and civil servants are also reported to have been rounded up east this NBA swatting a coup. D'etat conducting one of his own. If he does manage to reach the throne when King Solomon's time comes. What does he want to do with it and is in BS? Perhaps not quite the Mariah Carey loving modernizer. He would have us believe. This is the foreign desk when you bring in Mariah Carey and all these singers and pay them views amount of money but you do not have an any universities anyplace to learn music. There is no department in any Saudi university to learn. Play ride to a drama making this these other forms that you should look for. And whether this massive youth constituency what she has to some extent manage to bring behind him is still behind him in five years time because young people need to get jobs. They need to be able to get married. They can't subsistence promises forever. So I think Basch is going to be the key determinant his credibility rather than some of the things that I looked with more interested in the book. We must remember that. Donald Trump has given unequivocal support. D'amato Vince on who is heavily implicated in the killing of the journalist. Jamal Hasha he. Trump has had his back on that one and I think as as long as trump remains in power that this relationship will continue quite strongly. You're listening to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today show. I'm joined by Ali Al Ahmed and Laura James Ali. Ahmed is a Saudi Scala. The Institute for Gulf Affairs joins us from Washington DC. Laura James is senior Middle East analyst at the Global Advisory Firm Oxford Analytica Ali. Al Start with you and I'll start with well it's not always an easy question to answer with Saudi Arabia's concerned which is the the pretty basic one of as far as we know what has been going on this week Mohammed bin Salman the heir apparent of King. Solomon who has a lot of political ambitions obviously has members of the ruling family who are his rivals and they do not want to see him become king if they would like to see him ousted some just by talking and some by plotting so what has happened is Hamad discernment is extremely insecure about that and he took measures to stop any attempt to remove him. We have two groups here those who are talking and then the sort of speaking ill of Like his uncle Ahmad but Abdelaziz who who thinks that he has better in terms of becoming king and you have his cousin especially the younger ones who rallied around the his main rival. Hamad bin naive to try to dislodge him for power by by force even and that is why we have seen these steps of arrest and monitoring hundreds of members on family who are eyeing the throne Laura to bring you in his they one fundamental thing looking behind this extraordinary shakespeare in intrigue. Is it a reasonable assumption that MBBS is trying to nail down his future in anticipation that King Mohammed who is eighty four years old and not in good health? Con- last forever. I think he's done really since he became Crown Princeton before has been based on that assumption. It's been about shoring up his position within the family and I think if when his father succeeded nobody would have predicted that he could have done it. This effectively. He is essentially unchallenged. Do we understand. If the differences between the rival factions are actually political or is this basically a more atavistic. Instinctual family feud. I'm not sure that you can draw the distinction very clearly in Saudi Arabia between family in politics the two very much Banda with each other. I would say one difference between Mohammed bin Salman. His rivals is that he thinks that the anyway food. Saudi Arabia is essentially for one person to be in clear charging for that person to him whereas some of the people who oppose him wants to get back to a more consensual style family managed rule and Schering of resources and consensus in enslave change whereas if a political as well family reasons bin Salman says no that model work for Saudi Arabia. Dunga all these possible to be clear on rich factions of the house of sowed supporting. Nbs this point. Does he actually have the numbers? I think? So the most important in Saudi government and the ruling. Saudi Arabia is not even the ruling family anymore. It was about power previously. The model like Laura speaking about the there were centers of power at King. Abdullah had the national guard was his own militia guns so he can force his His agenda and his position and so on the delayed crown prince was also minister of defense so he had the army under his control so he can push his agenda and most importantly then the ministry of the interior with late conference knife had the interior ministry. Which has the largest number of security personnel and across the country and so he can use that to push himself to the throne in all of these people reach the throne. Some some did some died before they they got to to become king now all of these powers the Army National Guard and the Interior Ministry has been gutted and removed. Everything that's powerful about.

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, backed by the king, moves for absolute power

"It is easy to forget that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz. Al Sowed is not actually technically ruler of Saudi Arabia. That title belongs formerly to his elderly Father King Salman however since his appointment as crown prince in two thousand seventeen. It has been widely understood that. Nbs often known is the heir designate. Power behind the throne and at the age of thirty four very much the future of Saudi Arabia in this unofficial role mb has furnished considerable cause for concern he has overseen a terrible onslaught against Yemen and a blockade of Qatar. Neither of which appear to have accomplished much. He has interred dozens of his fellow royalty. For a time in a Ritz hotel and more or less kidnapped the prime minister of Lebanon perhaps most infamously. Nbs is widely supposed responsible for the murder of Washington. Post columnist. Jamal Khashoggi even by those standards. This week's palace intrigue in Riyadh is remarkable. Several members of the court appear to have been arrested at MBA's instruction including one of his uncles and one of his cousins dozens more army officers and civil servants are also reported to have been rounded up east this NBA swatting a coup. D'etat conducting one of his own. If he does manage to reach the throne when King Solomon's time comes. What does he want to do with it and is in BS? Perhaps not quite the Mariah Carey loving modernizer. He would have us believe. This is the foreign desk when you bring in Mariah Carey and all these singers and pay them views amount of money but you do not have an any universities anyplace to learn music. There is no department in any Saudi university to learn. Play ride to a drama making this these other forms that you should look for. And whether this massive youth constituency what she has to some extent manage to bring behind him is still behind him in five years time because young people need to get jobs. They need to be able to get married. They can't subsistence promises forever. So I think Basch is going to be the key determinant his credibility rather than some of the things that I looked with more interested in the book. We must remember that. Donald Trump has given unequivocal support. D'amato Vince on who is heavily implicated in the killing of the journalist. Jamal Hasha he. Trump has had his back on that one and I think as as long as trump remains in power that this relationship will continue quite strongly. You're listening to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today show. I'm joined by Ali Al Ahmed and Laura James Ali. Ahmed is a Saudi Scala. The Institute for Gulf Affairs joins us from Washington DC. Laura James is senior Middle East analyst at the Global Advisory Firm Oxford Analytica Ali. Al Start with you and I'll start with well it's not always an easy question to answer with Saudi Arabia's concerned which is the the pretty basic one of as far as we know what has been going on this week Mohammed bin Salman the heir apparent of King. Solomon who has a lot of political ambitions obviously has members of the ruling family who are his rivals and they do not want to see him become king if they would like to see him ousted some just by talking and some by plotting so what has happened is Hamad discernment is extremely insecure about that and he took measures to stop any attempt to remove him. We have two groups here those who are talking and then the sort of speaking ill of Like his uncle Ahmad but Abdelaziz who who thinks that he has better in terms of becoming king and you have his cousin especially the younger ones who rallied around the his main rival. Hamad bin naive to try to dislodge him for power by by force even and that is why we have seen these steps of arrest and monitoring hundreds of members on family who are eyeing the throne Laura to bring you in his they one fundamental thing looking behind this extraordinary shakespeare in intrigue. Is it a reasonable assumption that MBBS is trying to nail down his future in anticipation that King Mohammed who is eighty four years old and not in good health? Con- last forever. I think he's done really since he became Crown Princeton before has been based on that assumption. It's been about shoring up his position within the family and I think if when his father succeeded nobody would have predicted that he could have done it. This effectively. He is essentially unchallenged. Do we understand. If the differences between the rival factions are actually political or is this basically a more atavistic. Instinctual family feud. I'm not sure that you can draw the distinction very clearly in Saudi Arabia between family in politics the two very much Banda with each other. I would say one difference between Mohammed bin Salman. His rivals is that he thinks that the anyway food. Saudi Arabia is essentially for one person to be in clear charging for that person to him whereas some of the people who oppose him wants to get back to a more consensual style family managed rule and Schering of resources and consensus in enslave change whereas if a political as well family reasons bin Salman says no that model work for Saudi Arabia. Dunga all these possible to be clear on rich factions of the house of sowed supporting. Nbs this point. Does he actually have the numbers? I think? So the most important in Saudi government and the ruling. Saudi Arabia is not even the ruling family anymore. It was about power previously. The model like Laura speaking about the there were centers of power at King. Abdullah had the national guard was his own militia guns so he can force his His agenda and his position and so on the delayed crown prince was also minister of defense so he had the army under his control so he can push his agenda and most importantly then the ministry of the interior with late conference knife had the interior ministry. Which has the largest number of security personnel and across the country and so he can use that to push himself to the throne in all of these people reach the throne. Some some did some died before they they got to to become king now all of these powers the Army National Guard and the Interior Ministry has been gutted and removed. Everything that's powerful about. It has been moved to something called the State Security Agency and the control of bin Salman so our bin Salman controls all the military and security apparatus in the country. So who is his real challenge? No one they can speak. They can talk about. They cannot do very much. There are members of the family who want to see him out. This is not strange to the Saudi ruling family King Faysal was shot and killed by his own nephew. King Salad was overthrown by his brothers.

"That can flout modern diplomatic norms. My sense is there is a lot more here than people realize and I intend to use my feet on the intelligence committee, and the ranking democrat on the finance committee to make it clear that the days of a country just getting a slap on the wrist when they violate diplomatic norms. Those days are over a proposed legislation that would cats the sovereign wealth funds at a significant rate, and I've also made it clear that under my legislation. The core thought he family if they continue to engage in this kind of conduct will not be able to use the United States is a playground. If they think they're above the law. Well for more we go to Portland, Oregon where we're joined by Shane Dixon. Cavanaugh? The Oregonian reporter who broke the story of Saudi students fleeing US possibly with the assistance of the Saudi government, Shane, welcome to democracy. Now, explain how you got tipped off to the story. And then how it grew. Thank you, Amy and one for having me on the show and happy belated birthday to democracy. Now, we got the a tip from federal law enforcement back in October twenty eighteen specifically with the case involving Abdul remind neuro the Saudi national who was accused of fatally hitting fifteen year old Fallon smart here in Portland, Oregon at the time we learned that Nora who disappeared in June of twenty seventeen two weeks before his manslaughter trial here federal law enforcement believes that the Saudi government helped mister Noura escape prosecution in return to Saudi Arabia in kind of an extraordinary manner. Law enforcement believe that the Saudi government likely. Furnished Mr. neuro with an illicit passport and possibly got him out of the country here on a private plane. Once we started looking into that particular case, we soon found that. There were at least four other cases here in Oregon where young Saudi students who are studying at public university universities or colleges here. Were accused of serious crimes from rape to possession of child pornography? All of them were all, but one were built up by the Saudi government and all of them have since disappeared. Now, Shane most people are not aware that there's a considerable number of Saudi university students here in the United States for most of them actually paid their expenses and their tuition paid by the Saudi government. Could you talk about that the the the the the the numbers involved if you have an idea? Yeah. Absolutely. So following nine eleven where relations between the Saudi government and the US government were immensely strained back. In about two thousand five or two thousand six George W Bush and keying Abdulah reached an agreement that would create sort of a massive scholarship program funded by the Saudi government to allow tens of thousands of Saudi students come over to the United States to study here in the US last year in two thousand eighteen there were forty thousand university students from Saudi Arabia here at American universities and colleges that was down from a high even a few years before of about seventy thousand. So one thing that we've tried to make clear in our reporting is even though we're looking at criminal cases here in Oregon and other parts of the country where Saudi students have been accused of crimes and have vanished. Facing prosecution. It's just a tiny fraction of the tens of thousands of Saudi students studying in the US. Each year. I wanted to go back to nura the Saudi student Abdurrachman Samir nura who is accused of hitting killing the hit the hit and run killing Fallon smart while speeding and Portland Oregon before his trial.
