A New BS Book About Bandar Bush

By Debbie Schlussel
****UPDATE, 10/19/06: OOPS! My friend, magnificent author and journalist Paul Sperry, points out that I erred about Princess Haifa Al-Faisal, who paid rent for two of the 9/11 hijackers. As he notes, Princess Haifa is Prince Bandar’s WIFE, not cousin, which makes it that more frightening that such a BS book is being so heavily promoted and that Bandar is such a trusted bud to the Bush White House. Buy Paul’s excellent book, “Infiltration,” which is chock full of evidence and research into the Islamist influence upon to our government and how it panders to those who support and fund Islamic terrorism. ****
A new book is out. Its subject? Take a guess about whom these people are gushing:

A man for our times who has been at the very heart of world events for two decades

–Margaret Thatcher

A man of principle, a diplomat of astonishing caliber, and one of the great peacemakers of our time.

–Nelson Mandela
It figures a man with connections to 15 out of the 19 9/11 hijackers would be called “a man of principle” and “one of the great peacemakers” by blowhard Mandela.

But Can It Fertilize Your Lawn?

The book, “The Prince: The Secret Story of the World’s Most Intriguing Royal,” is about Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud, the slimy, sleazy Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the U.S. through 2005. He’s the guy that is so close to the Bush family, they nicknamed him “Bandar Bush.” He’s the guy that’s so close to the Prez, that on the eve after 9/11 happened, he and Bush smoked stogies together on the White House balcony. (I’m no Michael Moore. And while he’s better than the alternative–Bin Laden extremists worse than the Al-Sauds controlling Arabia, and us getting no oil/gas from them–this guy is pretty bad and the President’s close friendship with him is very troubling.)
And he’s the guy whose family has been justly maligned for their part in Al-Qaeda terror. He’s the guy whose WIFE, Princess Haifa Al-Faisal, was paying the rent for two of the hijackers.
He’s the man who was the face of the country that is the chief financier and proselytizer of Islamic hate against Jews and Christians that leads Muslims to try to annihilate us. But this book focuses more on how he’s “just like us,” with his skiing skills and fancy, chintzy highest priced mansion ever, just sold for about $150 million in Colorado. Just like us. Right.
Peacemaker? Principle? Sorry, Charlie, but this man–yet another phony leader emanating from our “ally in the War on Terror,” Saudi Arabia just doesn’t fit those fecal material-filled words of praise.
We wonder just how much William Simpson got for writing and Judith Regan got for publishing this absurd book on Prince Bandar that brought the fertilizer spigot a-flowing with such volume. And with no less a shabby launch than a half-page, full color ad in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal A section.
And who subsidized that ad? Let me guess–relatives of the same woman who paid the rent for Khalid Al-Midhar and Nawaf Al-Hazmi?
Probably not much of a stretch.
The author, Simpson, is hardly an objective observer. Part of England’s noblesse oblige, he’s an old chum of Bandar–a former classmate of his at a fancy English prep-school style college–who was granted all kinds of access in exchange for all kinds of accolade-laden bloviating. Whoever thinks this frizzy-haired terror-apologist Prince is “intriguing,” needs to get the lobotomy reversed.
How many days until “The Prince”–a bloated brick of future recycling paper–goes to the $1 bin? Not soon enough, in our opinion.
If you like this book, your name is probably James A. Baker III.

No one can accuse you of trying to position yourself for an invitation to Kennebunkport, Maine.

These Washington types will do anything for a little television time. Baker…a real disappointment.

I will overlook the Margaret Thatcher pronouncement due to the fact that she is very old and probably somewhat senile. Ddin’t Babs Bush refer to Bandar as being “one of the (Bush) family”?
EVEN BEFORE SHE WAS OLD AND SICK, THATCHER WAS ALWAYS PRO-SAUDI AND PAN-ARABIST BECAUSE, AFTER ALL, THEY OWN LIKE HALF OF ENGLAND AND THERE ARE A TON OF THEM IN THE COUNTRY AND GROWING.

It makes sense that the author of this poppycock is British. And an “aristocrat” no less. Some of the “aristocrats” are the worst. To continue, the British empire has been pro-Arab since 1920 at least. The British empire was a silent partner in the Holocaust, and now they’re trying for Holocaust II. The main instrument of the British empire in promoting the next Holocaust is the BBC. Don’t believe anything on the BBC except the weather and the stock quotes.
By the way, France is trying to catch up to Britain as an enemy of the Jews, although they’ve got a long way to go. News came in today [see Augean Stables] that a Jewish internet journalist named Philippe Karsenty, whose family comes from Algeria by the way, was convicted of insulting the TV network France2 and its correspondent in Israel, Charles Enderlin. He was ordered to pay 3000 euros damages to Enderlin. Enderlin, just by the way, was one of the creators of the “death of Muhammad al-Durah” hoax, of October 2000, which helped to promote Arab violence against Israel and Muslim violence generally around the world.
YOU ARE 100% CORRECT. THE WALL ST. JOURNAL RECENTLY HAD AN EXCELLENT PIECE ABOUT THE HISTORICAL–AND HYSTERIC-LADEN–ANTI-SEMITISM IN BRITAIN. IT’S WELL WRITTEN, BY NAOMI SCHAEFER RILEY, AND VERY DISTURBING:

There are two perceptions here: One, this guy must need the “funding” for his terrorist toys (that apparently no one cares about); or two, the more public one is, the easier it is to manage their activities. I think the President is dumb like a fox. I know “Dad” told him to keep his friends close, but his enemies closer!

As a follow up to my Maggie Thatcher post. Yes Britain is perpetually Arabist but as goes British Prime Ministers (I agree this is not setting the bar too high) she was pretty sympathetic towards Israel. Her old district in London in which she was elected to Parliament was Finchley which back then had a large Jewish population. The problem is that Arabism is so widely entrenched into all aspects of British life – The Foreign Office (aka The Camel Corps), The Royal Family (never visited Israel until Prince Charles spent an hour there for Rabin’s funeral), the media (the BBC is horrible), academia – that Thatcher and Blair was/are as good as one could legitimately hope for (on Israel issues). She also was a stalwart ally during the Cold War. The current Tory Party is a mess and has become an out and out pro Arab appeasement party, witness David Cameron’s speeches. Anyway soon Londonistan will arise as St. Paul’s becomes a MOsque.
GOTTA AGREE TO DISAGREE ON THATCHER & ISRAEL. SHE WAS NEVER PRO-ISRAEL. THANK G-D, THE GREAT COMMUNICATOR, RONALD REAGAN, DID NOT LISTEN TO HER ON THAT ISSUE. BUT HIS SUCCESSOR, POPS BUSH, SURE DID. HE AND SHE PRESSURED THEN ISRAELI PM YITZCHAK SHAMIR, BIG-TIME. THEIR DOUBLE TEAMING FOR THE JIHAD WAS DISGUSTING, WITH JAMES A. BAKER EGGING IT ON.
