I guess I need you to explain your comment a little bit so I can understand what you mean.
From what I understand there are two factions inside the family Saud. One who what's the modernize Saudi socity, one that doesn't. I first ran across it in Yossef Bodansky's "The Secret History Of The Iraq War". On one side there was the old king along with the new king Abdullah.
Of course we are talking Saudi Arabia, so when I say modernize I'm not talking about turning the place into Vegas.
