Abstract

Saad El-Faqih and Tristan Schulze: Saudi Arabia is a shuttered but pivotal country on the world scene. Its oil feeds the world's energy needs. But terrorism is on the increase, and the ruling royal family, the House of Saud, is ageing and divided. Saad Al-Faqih, the head of the Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia, was a surgery professor until he was exiled from Saudi Arabia ten years ago. He portrays himself as a moderate activist leading a campaign to transform Saudi Arabia from a virtual dictatorship to a democracy. The Saudi government calls him a Muslim extremist and accuses him of having strong ties to terrorists. It wants his operation shut down.
