Bin Laden’s Son Urges Overthrow Of Saudi Regime, Jihad Against US Influence

Tyler Durden's picture

Following several unclaimed terrorist attacks on Saudi territory over the past few months, yesterday the son of Al-Qaeda's founder Osama bin Laden urged Saudis to take discontent to the next level and to "overthrow" the kingdom's rulers in order to "free" themselves from US influence, SITE Intelligence Group reported Wednesday. In an undated audio message, Hamza bin Laden urged Saudi youth to join the Yemen-based Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) to "gain the necessary experience" to fight, according to SITE.

In a new recording released on Wednesday by the Al-Qaeda-linked As-Sahab media outlet, the heir of Osama bin Laden urged Saudi youth to join the Yemen-based Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) to “gain the necessary experience” in waging “intifada” to free the country from the Al-Saud family.

The undated audio message is Hamza bin Laden’s fourth speech since August 2015, as he tries to assert his influence over the global terrorist network. While Al-Qaeda has been headed by Ayman Al Zawahri since 2011, experts believe that Hamza is aiming for the top terrorist position. Furthermore, the resurgence the ‘heir’ comes amid rivalry among the notorious jihadist groups. Al-Qaida’s Syria affiliate Al-Nusra Front is a rival of the Islamic State, which itself is a former Al-Qaeda offshoot whose leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in 2014 declared an Islamic caliphate across Iraq and Syria.

After he urged an uprising against the Saudi monarchy, Hamza went on to focus on global jihad issues, touching on the need to continue resistance in Palestine and Syria, as part of “an ongoing effort to unify and head the movement,” SITE’s Director Rita Katz said on Twitter.

Just last month, the son of the former Al-Qaeda head released a video vowing revenge against the United States at home and abroad in response to Washington’s policies in Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Somalia.

Classified by the United States as the network's deadliest franchise, AQAP was formed in January 2009 as a merger of the Yemeni and Saudi branches of Al-Qaeda. Yemen is the ancestral home of Saudi-born Osama bin Laden.

As AFP reports, US intelligence officials have said that 23-year-old Hamza was the favorite son of the 9/11 mastermind who had been grooming him to take over as Al-Qaeda's leader.

On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death, experts have noted Hamza's increasing prominence among jihadists in comparison to that of Egyptian Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

A Saudi-led coalition is battling Iran-backed rebels in Yemen as well as Sunni jihadists who have joined AQAP and the Islamic State group. Earlier this week, Sadi forces killed over ten doctors working in a Doctors without Borders hospitral in Yemen, in an incident that has gotten zero US press coverage.

About twenty years ago I read an article in the local paper. Seems a not-to-bright individual traded in his car at the local dealer for a shinny new one. When a worker started cleaning out the vehicle for re-sale, they found several ounces of high grade weed in the glove box.

They called the police, who preceded to set up a sting operation. They had the dealer call the guy back and tell him he had left something in the glove box and would he please come by and pick it up. Presumably the guy suddenly realized what he left behind because he immediately showed up at the dealer asking for his property.

A cop, acting as a dealer employee, pulled the pot out of a brown paper bag and asked the guy if it was his. He, of course, said yes,

There, fixed it. Rita Katz/SITE... really? WTF ZH? Disinformation much? Fer fuck's sake...

CorneliuCodreanu's picture


Rita Katz and SITE= 0 credibility and 100% lies.

Once again, the difference between a real jihadist and a fake one is who they attack. There have been precursory signs that both Saudi Arabia and Turkey have been deliberately weakened from within. In the case of Saudi Arabia, revenues have been run down in an oil price war as well as military adventures in Yemen. The latest Rita Katz's fakery does suggest that the Saudis are on the menu. We can anticipate more sabotage,disruption and a downward spiral in that country.

As far as propaganda,giveaway for me was Rita Katz at the top of the article. Seems to me that the House of Saud have been a bitch of USA for decades but they have done a decent job of keeping their masses placated,within their own borders anyway. The next pimp of SA,and there will be one cause they can't fight their way out of a wet paper bag,may not be so kind to the ho. Just slap her around and take her money and oil and then let the neighbors have their turn once the resources dwindle.

EDIT: I see CC had the same idea at the same time above.

Moral of the story..... leave no enemies behind.  Kill them all or they will rise up and tear at your throat.  Seals should have tapped everyone in the compound.

You would be amazed at how many times that has actually happened.

Back in the day I remember the Hertz Rent-A-Car desk and operation at National Airport was involved in three busts in one year where someone would rent a car, turn it in at the airport and forget all about the large parcels of drugs they had in the trunk. ... The Hertz clean up boys would jump right on their job tiding up the car for the next costumer and find suitcases full of narcotics in the trunk.

I don't think drug couriers are suppose to be tapping the product they're transporting but you know how hard it is to find good help in that profession.

It's called dope for a reason.

That was back before the gov stepped in and took over shipping for the cartels. .. Now, of course, they just pick up and deliver at the customs bonded warehouse and don't sweat checking funky luggage.

After 15 years of endless wars (Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Lybia, Syria, Yemen...), started on a lie (WMD), you haven't learned a god damn thing yet, have you now.

You gringos (derived from Green Go, during your Mexican conquests) should abandon the Middle East and stop recruiting, arming and training YOUR terrorists to overthrow governments you don't like for whatever hegemonic whim.

The cockroaches you talk about, are of your own making, so don't complain and get the fuck out of there!

15 years? Are you that young. The U.S. has been meddling in the middle east for at least several decades.

Don't be a hypocrite!  What, when we (US people) want the Saudis overthrown, then that is "Good", but when they want it to happen, then it's "Bad"?  Seriously?

No,  if this kid says it, then good for him.  I hope the Saudis do overthrow the House of Saud, and make them swing from gallows -- or however they eliminate people like that.

BTW, let's not forget that

   1. The Muhajadeen that OBL joined were originally funded and supplied by the US (DOD, CIA), to fight the Russians -- by supplying them with Stinger missiles and Comm equipment.  Has it ever occured to anyone on ZH (or elsewhere) that the NSA and CIA were always listening via their backdoor ways, as to what OBL & Co were up to?  Hello?  Bueller?  Ferris Bueller?  Anyone?  Sheesh!

   2. OBL did not cause 9/11.  He never took credit for it, but he did rejoice in it -- as did a bunch of dancing Israelis, dancing on NJ rooftops

   3. Most of the alleged hijackers were Saudis

Nice rant, Cap.

Every bit of it true too.

I say go for it kid. .. The House of Saud and their 'Intelligence Community' buddies all over the world are an evil lot of lowlifes.

Kick their ass and take your country back. ... When you're done and we've solved our problems here we'll see if we can work on a little nicer relationship and stay out of each other's family business.

Been lurking for a little while, but finally broke down and decided to create an account. Because disseminating information (while we still can) is more important than being on some list. I'm sure I'm already on some lists.

Anyway, long time computer nerd here.

The future is secure, encrypted, and decentralized networks. Like FreeNet and others. There are some interesting distributed search engines some people are working on now, too. At minimum, for Godssakes, stop using Google if you haven't already (DuckDuckGo and others are good altenatives that you can start using RIGHT NOW). But going forward, think distributed, instead of centralized. Like bittorrent protocol. This way there is no central sever that can be taken down, controlled, censored, etc.

I would encourage everyone who comes to this site and shares in most of the concerns that are expressed here to learn everything you can about encryption, privacy, networking, and computers, while you still can. Start learning how to use GNU/Linux and other Free Software. Familiarize yourself with the philosophical underpinnings of the Free Software movement (, if you have not already (there is a differeence from "open source" software).

Start using GNU/Linux instead of Windows. M$ have just gone too far with all the spying in Win 8 and 10. And because of PRISM, you can know that everything that M$, Google, Yahoo, or any of them have stored on their servers, the .gov also has access to whenever they want, without even needing a warrant. I still take advantage of some online cloud services for extra storage and backup, but only by placing my data inside an encrypted TrueCrypt container. But mostly I am moving toward hosting as many of my own services and data right here at home on a server I control like XMPP messaging server, email, DNS, etc. But the latter is not for beginners.

On the hardware front, try wherever possible to purchase older hardware that has not been compromised with bootloader/BIOS backdoors from the factory (as all AMD and Intel CPUs have been for several years now). T60s were the last true ThinkPads (before IBM sold to Lenovo), 5:4 screen ratio, quality IPS displays with great viewing angles, built like a tank, true 5/7 row keyboard (not chicklets), nipple mouse, built like a tank (legendary reliability, search for videos surviving fires, etc.), but probably most important they can run LibreBIOS. You can find them nowadays for $100 each or less. Spare parts are also readily available, and so are repair manuals, they were designed to be modular and repaired as components of a corporate fleet. Top of the line laptops in their day, they can be had for a song now, and are plenty good for what most people use their computer for (web browsing, email, etc.). You might find them slightly heavy by todays standards though, if you are a limp wristed iFag, although I don't imagine that's too much of a problem around here. There is a lot of great information and a great community at ThinkPadForums.

On the cell phone front, things are a little more bleak. Unfortunately the baseband processor itself is the problem, therefore you can never truly have control over your own hardware that you bought. So if you really need to be untraceable for whatever reason, leave your phone at home. With the battery out of it. Or get rid of it entirely, use a burner dumb phone, etc. although I am not willing to be that much without technology, given the tradeoffs, for now (until things start to get a little worse).

There are a few things you can do right now to improve your privacy, without going full luddite. Learn to live without Google Play Services on your Android phone (there are great FOSS alternatives for all Google's services (install F-Droid, a Free Software alternative market to Google's Play Store), and you CAN run AOSP/Cyanogenmod without Google Services. In fact that's the way it comes. Obviously I don't need to tell you to get Facebook off your phone, and learn about VPNs, TOR, script blockers, ad blockers, etc. on PC and phone and start using them. Be mindful of browser fingerprinting, once you have started using ad and script blockers. Some good resources at /r/privacy and elsewhere on the internet.

But longer term, if/when things do get that bad, the more you know about communications may help you if you decide to be a part of the resistance against the forces of tyranny. I am getting more involved with my local HAMs to learn more about antennae and other radio transmission fundamentals, to supplement my other computer and networking knowledge.

Again on a resistance front, I believe, after much consideration that any resistance should also take the form of unassociated individuals, instead of some centralized leadership. Like bittorrent. This way there is no leader who can be targeted, killed, etc. All of us must educate ourselves and become self sufficent, self aware, autonomous cells. Personally, I think this should be added to hedgeless horseman's revolutionary call to arms. But maybe I lean too much on the technology, perhaps under those circumstances we would be better off just passing memorized information by courier. I dunno. Yes the bad guys may intercept some of the communications some of the time, but that doesn't mean we should abandon technology altogether IMO.

In fact, one good thing to remember is that the hackers are generally smarter and one or two steps ahead of the government forces. Because anyone who is smart enough to work on technology and encryption is also smart enough to understand what governments are really all about, generally speaking. And so, that is why there has always been a strong sense of liberty amongst cypherpunk types and computer hackers, going all the way back.

Anyway, just my $0.02.
