ARAB INTERIOR MINISTERS CONCLUDE MEETING IN TUNIS
January 30, 2001
At the end of its session, the council issued a statement on the Al-Aqsa intifada, strongly condemning the brutal massacres, killings, torture, siege and starvation suffered by the Palestinian people at the hands of the occupying Zionist enemy. The statement reiterated support for the intifada, describing it as the legitimate right of resisting the occupier, deterring aggression, protecting sanctuaries, and realizing the hopes of the Palestinian people to establish their independent state on their national soil with Al Quds [Jerusalem] as its capital, together with the rights of refugees to return to their homes and to be compensated. The statement paid tribute to the souls of the martyrs of this holy intifada and to the provision of assistance to its heroes and to those of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) in accordance with the statement of the extraordinary Arab Summit held in Cairo in October 2000.

FINANCE MINISTER SPEAKS OUT ON AID TO PALESTINIANS
March 20, 2001
Minister of Finance and National Economy Dr. Ibrahim Al-Assaf said today that the Saudi government has to date given a total of SR 8.9 billion [U.S. $2.37 billion] in aid to the government and people of Palestine. Dr. Al-Assaf, speaking at a press conference in Riyadh, reiterated the Kingdom's staunch support of the Palestinian intifada [uprising], and declared that assistance to the Palestinian people, a firm Saudi policy ever since the days of King Abdulaziz, has been translated into unlimited initiatives in various political, economic and social areas and at various local, regional and international levels. He referred in particular to the sum of SR 2.2 billion [$585.89 million] since Madrid, that includes the Kingdom's donation of $300 million as announced at the international conferences for the support of the Palestinian Authority. This assistance, he explained, is disbursed by the Saudi Development Fund (SDF), partly for SDF projects but also to support the Palestinian budget.
Dr. Al-Assaf said that the emergency Arab Summit in Cairo in October 2000 accepted a proposal made by Deputy Prime Minister and Commander of the National Guard Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdulaziz concerning the establishment of a fund for the intifada. This fund has resources of $200 million, with the Kingdom's share standing at $50 million, and targets the families of victims of the intifada, specifically to educate the sons of martyrs and rehabilitate the injured. Dr. Al-Assaf added that the Crown Prince's second proposal, to establish a fund for Al-Aqsa, with resources of $800 million in which the Kingdom's share is $200 million, is dedicated to finance projects that would protect the Arab and Islamic identity of Al-Quds [Jerusalem].
Donations are still coming in to the committee, chaired by Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz, that was set up to coordinate the fundraising. This committee, Dr. Al- Assaf said, has pledged a sum of SR 20,000 [$5,333] to each family that has suffered from martyrdom. A total of SR 124 million [$33.07 million] has been transferred for this purpose, and to provide for the injured.
KINGDOM REITERATES SUPPORT FOR PALESTINIANS
August 20, 2001
The extraordinary Arab Summit in Cairo in 2000 adopted the Kingdom's proposal to set up two funds with a capital of $1 billion, for the purpose of preserving the Arab and Islamic identity of Al-Quds and to support Al-Intifadah (uprising). Saudi Arabia contributed $250 million to these funds. That year, Saudi Arabia sent medical teams to help wounded Palestinians, extended to others free medical treatment in the Kingdom, and offered financial support to one thousand families of Palestinian martyrs and those who suffered injuries in the cause.
CONCLUSION OF ARAB SUMMIT IN BEIRUT
March 28, 2002
"We would like to salute the heroic intifadah of the Palestinians and their resistance to Israel's occupation and its destructive military machinery and repressive measures against them. We hail the courageous martyrs of the intifadah, and stress strong support on all levels for the Palestinian people and for their legitimate heroic struggle against occupation, to achieve their just demands for their right of return, self-determination, and the establishment of their state with Al-Quds [East Jerusalem] as its capital."
And the Saudis only gave Clinton $20 million or so for his library, and a few hundred thousand for his speech a few weeks back.
We need oil. Saudis have billions in our banks. We are tied together, the nations of the "free" world.
President G H W Bush did as solid a job driving Saddam out of Kuwait as anyone could. The rest is leftist drivel...permeating the press and rewriting history until even "conservatives" buy the lies.
I can't help but think that the transnational terrorists cannot be stopped without a confrontation between the US and the Muslim states over their support of the terrorists. I can understand our current temporizing as long as it is part of a long term plan to end the sickness which has invaded the Muslim world, and the governments of Muslim nations. It won't be pretty, but unfortunately, it must happen for our welfare, and in fact, for the welfare of the people of the Muslim nations.
Monday, April 01, 2002 WASHINGTON The Bush administration accused Iran, Iraq and Syria of fomenting terror while it urged Yasser Arafat on Monday to ban suicide attacks and Israel to "carefully consider the consequences" of its military thrust into Ramallah.
The multifaceted message emerged after President Bush met at the White House with Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld, Secretary of State Colin Powell, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and, by video linkup, Vice President Dick Cheney.
Clear shadings of emphasis emerged from the various parts of the administration.
Bush and his spokesman, Ari Fleischer, focused on Arafat, demanding the Palestinian leader denounce terror. The State Department delivered a more evenhanded lecture to Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
At the Pentagon, Rumsfeld offered a searing indictment of Iran, Iraq and Syria as supporters of a terrorist "war on civilization."
The above cites are taken directly from the Saudi Embassy USA web site. Is that drivel?
Or has cocktail hour started early this evening?
hmmm! well I guess the Arab nations don't want these idiots moving back to their land, since initially..they threw them out! When the heck did any part of Israel become their national soil? In about 700bc or so when Muhammad decided that Israel had all the riches he desired and so it unconditionaly became Muslim soil i.e the Palestinians!
Well I hope the Israeli's kick their low down dirty rotten butts out of the country entirely.. wouldn't hurt my feeling one little bit.. we ought to do the same here.. or we will be in the same shape as Israel.. hide and watch!
Of course, anyone can post anything, but if our state department, CIA, FBI, Pentagon, Homeland Security, et al went to Register.com they could check who owns that site and verify the information contained on SAUDIEMBASSY.net for themselves AND check it for accuracy.
