This genesis story doesn't begin with a charismatic Arab leader, but with a member of British intelligence: St. John Philby, known also as Jack Philby
. Jack Philby: Saudi Arabia's Founding Father Many people are more acquainted with Jack Philby's son, the notorious Communist double agent, Harold Adrian Russell Philby, also known as Kim Philby.
could be considered the founding father of Saudi Arabia.Jack Philby
was a British Civil Servant who was dismissed for sexual misconduct (Loftus and Aarons 25).
From there Jack
was picked up by British secret service MI6 in 1915 (25).
During the early 1920s, Philby
secret service colleagues did everything they could to undercut Zionist immigration.Philby's
secret service station organized anti-Jewish propaganda in Palestine.To be fair, he
was merely carrying out a policy organized by his
predecessors to stir up the Arabs against the Jews.According to several of our sources, Great Britain was the first modern country to use its intelligence service to organize terrorist acts against the Jews. (33)
was more than just a Jew-hater.Philby's
fanaticism went much further than the fanaticism of his
colleagues in MI6 or the British power elite.While the British power elite and MI6 were anti-Jewish, they were still not supportive of Arab self-determination and political independence.From the perspective of the British oligarchs and MI6, the Arab world was to be divided into French and British spheres of influence.The secret Sykes-Picot agreement of 1916 was concocted for just this purpose (28-9).Jack Philby
was fanatically pro-Arab.In 1917, Jack
met with the chieftain of the Wahhabi sect, Ibn Saud (30).
This was supposed to be just a minor political mission, but what came out of it was an alliance between Jack
and Ibn Saud as well as Philby's
adoption of Wahhabism (30-1).
...Philby passed intelligence information to Ibn Saud that allowed the House of Saud to defeat Sharif Hussein and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was born (35).
In all likelihood, the answer is no. Philby's
support of Ibn Saud was motivated by his hatred for Britain.
realized that British promises of Arab independence were not genuine, he
broke politically with England (28).Still, Philby's
pro-Arab fanaticism buttressed the British power elite's anti-Jewish agenda.While he
may have been a renegade, Jack Philby's
work seemed to always help one or more faction of the power elite.This included the American elite.With the aid of Allen Dulles, Jack Philby
would connect the Saudi elite to American elite.
In the 1930s, Philby
was able to convince Ibn Saud to allow foreign investment in the Kingdom in the name of discovering oil.
convinced Ibn Saud to allow Charles Crane to facilitate exploration of Saudi Arabia's subsoil assets (42).
In 1933, Standard Oil of California (SOCAL) negotiated with Philby
for a 60-year contract that allowed SOCAL to have exclusive rights to explore and extract oil (42-3).
Not only was the Dulles brothers agents of the power elite, but Allen Dulles had also been in a criminal relationship with Jack Philby
since 1921 (39).
In that year, Philby
, who was then the secret service head of intelligence for Transjordan
, met Allen, who was then stationed in Istanbul (39).
Allen helped Jack
guarantee the economic and political survival of Ibn Saud through his connections to American oil companies (38).
and Dulles helped build the modern state of Saudi Arabia and connect the American elite to the Saudi elite.
This would have led to a deeper examination of the Saudi elite, which would have revealed that the American power elite has been connected to the Saudi criminal and conspiratorial infrastructure since Philby
and Dulles created it.
