Who's Who in the Sunni Shiite Muslim World? Religion and Minorities.
Part One.


We are now considering the Arab States of the Persian Gulf and Arabia.
These areas like the rest of the Islamic world are those wherein one group rules over another. In nearly every case whoever rules oppresses they whom they rule over.
Very often the rulers are in the demographic minority.
This is the natural order of things in the Islamic world.

The Hashemite Family in Arabia, Syria, Jordan, and Iraq.

Arabia was divided up into a number of principalities in the Ottoman Turkish Empire.
The Hashemite Clan governed the region of Mecca the holy city of Islam and the Hejaz in the southwest of Arabia. The Hashemites were from the same family as Mohamed.
In World War-1 the Hashemite ruler, Hussein bin Ali, Sharif of Mecca rebelled against the Turks. He was advised by a British official, T.E. Lawrence, known popularly as Lawrence of Arabia.
The Sharif was expelled in 1925 along with his son and would be successor Ali.
The Hejaz was annexed by Ibn Saud. The Saudi family had emerged from Riyadh in the center of Arabia slightly towards the east. Ibn Saud had founded the  Ikhwan, a military-religious brotherhood which believed in purification of Islam and Jihad i.e. Wahabbi Islam. They conquered the lands of other princes and named their conquests Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile the sons of  Sharif Hussein bin Ali had become rulers in their own right. Abdallah had been created King of Transjordan (later named Jordan) and Feisal was first king of Syria then King of Iraq.
Feisal was the one whom Lawrence had befriended. He could not get along with the others.

The Allies had liberated Palestine and Syria from the Turks. Australian troops conquered Damascus in 1918. Feisal leading his Arabs and guided by Lawrence took over Damascus and set up an Arab Government. Later the myth would be promoted that the Arabs had captured Damascus from the Turks. Feisal at that time was considered the figure head of Arab nationalism. Feisal wrote an acceptance of the Balfour Declaration of 1917. This declared the intention of the British to establish a Jewish Homeland in the region of Palestine which at that time included Transjordan. It has been claimed however that this acceptance was dictated by Lawrence with Feisal doing no more than sign.

Feisal had himself proclaimed King of Syria in March 1920. In July 1920, after a battle, the French expelled Feisal from Syria and took control. Feisal fled to Britain. The British then made Feisal King of Iraq in August 1921. The British granted Iraq independence while continuing to work the oil fields and maintaining Air Force bases. In Iraq, Feisal was relatively successful and encouraged Arab nationalism. Feisal was followed by his son Ghazi (1933-1939) under whose reign there occurred massacres of Christian Assyrians, Kurds, and Shiites. Ghazi was assassinated on orders of his former Prime Minister. Ghazi was followed by his son Feisal-2. During the reign of Feisal-2 a coup in 1941  replaced the government while leaving the monarch in his place. The new government asked for assistance from Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. This turning to the German Axis was merely continuing a policy that the previous administration  had initiated.   Meanwhile the anti-Jewish Grand Mufti, religious leader of Palestinian Arabs, had fled to Iraq where he conducted propaganda urging the Arabs to support the Nazi cause. In May 1941, an attempt was made to eject the British from their Air Force bases in the country. This was during the course of World WQar-2 and the Allies badly needed Iraqi oil.  The British sent a force from Malaya in addition to receiving assistance from an Assyrian Christian Iraqi militia. The Grand Mufti in Bagdad, Iraq, declared a jihad against the British Empire. Syria at this time was ruled by  French forces who had sided with the pro-German Vichy government of France. German and Italian aircraft were brought into Iraq. Nevertheless the Iraqis were defeated and a pro-Allied government installed. Angry Iraqis rioted and vented their rage on the Jews of Bagdad. 120 Jews were killed and 850 injured along with much damage to Jewish property.
 Feisal-2 (1939-1958) was later killed by members of the army after which Iraq became a republic.

The Persian Gulf

The Persian Gulf and its coastal areas are the world's largest single source of crude oil and related industries dominate the region. ...
In 2002, the Persian Gulf nations of Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE, produced about 25% of the world's oil, held nearly two-thirds of the world's crude oil reserves, and about 35% of the world natural gas reserves.[7]

Bahrein has a majority of  Shiites  of Iranian orientation ruled by Sunni Arab autocrats. Iran has claims to Bahrein. An attempt is being made to bring in more Sunni Arab settlers.
The population in 2010 stood at 1,234,571, including 666,172 non-nationals.[1]

About 57% of the population in Kuwait is Arab, 39% South and East Asian, and 4% are classified Bidoon ('without' ? stateless Arabs).[18]
Kuwait in Ancient Times was known as Characene.  Togerther with Adiabene in the north, Characene was given over by the Persians to Scythian-Sakai settlers. Converts to Judaism
emerged from its ruling families as they did with Adiabene.
Kuwait is probably located within the borders of Great Israel as defined by the Bible.

In 1991 Iraq under Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. This was followed by the first Gulf War.
Kuwait had had ca. 400,000 Palestinian guests and workers. These on the whole backed the Iraqis. Consequently the Palestinians were ejected and by 1998 their numbers reduced to ca. 30,000.

# Kuwaitis forced them out of the country using a systematic and violent campaign of ethnic cleansing. #


Quatar on the Persian Gulf Coast has a minority of native Arabs (20%) ruling over other Arabs (also 20%) and an Asian labor force. It has close to 2 million people and is extremely rich due to its oil reserves.

UAE (United Arab Emirates)
The UAE is a federation of seven emirates, the most well-known of which are Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
The UAE has ca. 8 million residents consisting (similar to Quatar) of ca. 16% native Arabs ruling over other Arabs (ca. 20%) and an Asian work force. Very rich.

In foreign and defense policy Kuwait, Quatar, and the UAE, cooperate closely with Saudia.

Saudi Arabia today.
Population total ca. 27 million.
Saudi Nationals ca. 16 million.
ca. 9 million foreigners legally there.
ca. 2 million illegal foreigners.
Foreigners are Indians, Pakistanis, Egyptians, Yemnis, Bangla Deshis, etc.

Most money derived from oil.

The ethnic composition of Saudi nationals is 90% Arab and 10% Afro-Asian.

About 85-90% of Saudis are Sunni, while Shias represent around 10-15% of the Muslim population. The Shiites however are the majority in the eastern provinces where most of the oil is found.
Approximately 40% of Saudi nationals consider themselves Wahhabis. The Wahhabis are Sunni extremists who believe in jihad.

Saudia does not allow Jews into its country.
Elements within Saudia finance Al Quaeda and the Taliban.
The Government of Saudia is responsible for the radicalization of Islam throughout the world.
Saudia money pays for Mosques and preachers who toe an extremist Islamic position.
Saudi money is also very important in US politics.
There is an overlap between the Saudi Wahhabis and the Muslim Brothers of Egypt.

The character of the Saudis may also be measured by its treatment of fellow Moslems. In 1934 Saudia conquered Najran province from  Yemen. The inhabitants of Najran are mainly Ismails. They number about 1 million (Saudia in general has ca. 28 million). The Ismailis are a branch of the Shiites. They are given to mystical interpretations of the Koran. The famous Assassin (later 1000s CE) were Ismailis. Drugged with hashish they would disguise themselves as the army and assassinate their political opponents. The Aga Khan is the name given to the head of the Nizari branch of Ismailis. Holders of this office in the past had a reputation as affluent play boys. The present Aga Khan is one of the richest persons in the world.

Within Saudia the Ismailis are persecuted and described as  "corrupt infidels, debauched atheists."

All truth passes through three stages: First it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
