It’s no coincidence most of the 911 hijackers were Saudis or the attack was funded by Saudi oil money. This has left the U.S. in a position to either deal with our “allies” such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt and their exporting of terrorism to the West, or risk oil supplies. Most of this terrorism can be traced directly back to Saudi Wahhabism (the state religion of Saudi Arabia) or it’s offshoot the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt.
70% of all Muslim schools (Madrasah) and mosques in the west are funded by Saudi Arabia and staffed with Wahhabi clerics. These are the training schools of the Taliban in Pakistan and elsewhere. The Muslim Brotherhood too is widespread among Muslim organizations of all kinds including the leading organizations such as MAS, ISNA, and CAIR. Wahhabism by any rational definition is evil. What can we do if our government won’t act because “other foreign policy interests outweighed fighting terrorism.”

There is a direct Saudi connection to terrorist Nidal Hasan according to Stephen Schwarts (New York Post 11-7-2009) himself a Muslim convert battling Wahhabism. To quote:
What interpretation of Islam influenced Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan? As often before, the trail leads to the official sect of Saudi Arabia — known as Wahhabism to most of us of who denounce it…
(Hasan) regularly attended Friday prayer at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, Md. The Silver Spring clerics have issued formal statements condemning the carnage at Ft. Hood. But Imam Faizul Khan, long the main prayer leader at the mosque and a friend of Hasan, said he never believed Hasan capable of such an act. Yet what docrines did Hasan absorb at the mosque? While he was a communicant, it hosted at least four talks by Enver Masud, the founder of The Wisdom Fund, the main Muslim “truther” group in America.
And Khan is a leading board member of the Islamic Society of North America — the main Wahhabi-lobby group in the United States, established by Saudi Arabia to impose extremism on American Muslims. ISNA has a long and disgraceful record of promoting radical Islam…
Saudi bank’s role in mosque is questioned
The Islamic Society of Boston’s effort to build the region’s largest mosque has received at least $1 million in financing from a Saudi Arabia-based bank dominated by governments that critics of the mosque project say support Islamic extremism.
The Islamic society acknowledged yesterday receiving a $1 million loan from the Islamic Development Bank in late 2005 — principal owners of which are Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iran, and Egypt — after opponents of the mosque project provided the Globe with documents showing that the bank paid about $500,000 in mosque construction bills late in 2005…
Saudi, Libyan, and Iranian government funding for Islamic fundamentalist organizations have been criticized by the US State Department and human rights organizations for contributing to the rise of terrorists who use Islam to justify their actions…The bank has not been targeted separately for such criticism…

The Saudi Connection: How billions in oil money spawned a global terror network
The CIA’s Illicit Transactions Group…(and) the NSC formed a task force to look at al Qaeda’s finances. For months, members scoured every piece of data the U.S. intelligence community had on al Qaeda’s cash…The evidence was indisputable: Saudi Arabia. America’s longtime ally and the world’s largest oil producer had somehow become, as a senior Treasury Department official put it, “the epicenter” of terrorist financing…
Over the past 25 years, the desert kingdom has been the single greatest force in spreading Islamic fundamentalism, while its huge, unregulated charities funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to jihad groups and al Qaeda cells around the world.
Those findings are the result of a five-month investigation by U.S. News…The charities were part of an extraordinary $70 billion Saudi campaign to spread their fundamentalist Wahhabi sect worldwide. The money helped lay the foundation for hundreds of radical mosques, schools, and Islamic centers that have acted as support networks for the jihad movement, officials say. U.S. intelligence officials knew about Saudi Arabia’s role in funding terrorism by 1996, yet for years Washington did almost nothing to stop it.
Examining the Saudi role in terrorism, a senior intelligence analyst says, was “virtually taboo.” Even after the embassy bombings in Africa, moves by counterterrorism officials to act against the Saudis were repeatedly rebuffed by senior staff at the State Department and elsewhere who felt that other foreign policy interests outweighed fighting terrorism.

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Hasan al-Banna, a 22-year-old elementary school teacher, as an Islamic revivalist movement following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the subsequent ban of the caliphate system of government that had united the Muslims for hundreds of years. Al-Banna based his ideas that Islam was not only a religious observance, but a comprehensive way of life, on the tenets of Wahhabism…
Wahhabism was sect formed in Saudi Arabia in the early 19th Century and was loathed by the Ottoman Turks. Because of oil the West has allowed this sect and its offshoots to spread like a cancer across the Islamic world.
