Secret Recording: Saudi Prince Threatens to Behead, Dismember Biz Partner Who Questions Hezbo Money-Laundering Deal
For those who think that the Saudis–because they are Sunnis–are against Shi’ite Iran and Hezbollah (based on leaked Wikileaks cables, etc.), recorded telephone conversations in a British lawsuit should be Exhibit A that things are not always what they seem. Jordanian businessman Faisal Almhairat is suing two Saudi princes–Prince Mishal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, a former Saudi defense minister and brother of King Abdullah, and his son, Prince Abdulaziz bin Mishal bin Al Saud–in a UK court. The Saudi princes were partners with Almhairat in a London-based telecom software company, Fi Call, but it’s quite apparent that, to the Saudi Royals, the telecome software company was little more than a money-laundering operation to Hezbollah operated by the Saudi Royal Family. The prince son threatened more than once in recorded conversations to behead and dismember Almhairat if he continued to question the dealings with Hezbollah.

The princes fought in British court to keep documents and transcripts of their Hezbollah dealings a secret, but they failed. Check out the transcript of a telephone conversation between Almhairat and Prince Abdulaziz bin Mishal bin Al Saud on March 21, 2010:
Prince Abdulaziz: Hello, Faisal
Faisal Almhairat: Who is this?
Prince Abdulaziz: This is Abdulaziz
Faisal Almhairat: Yes, Your Royal Highness
Prince Abdulaziz: Hello Faisal, How are you?
Faisal Almhairat: Very well, thank you, Your Royal Highness
Prince Abdulaziz: [XXX] has told me about the conversation he had with you. I’m not pleased with it.
Faisal Almhairat: I’m sorry to hear that.
Prince Abdulaziz: Faisal, I thought you were a smart man and understood your position. There is no need to explain more. Yet, it seems that I should spend my time explaining the position to you.
Faisal Almhairat: I just asked [XXX] why he would be dealing with Hezbollah.
Prince Abdulaziz: Faisal, listen to me carefully. I’ll explain this only once.
Faisal Almhairat: Yes, Your Royal Highness.
Prince Abdulaziz: We deal with whoever we want to deal with, whether it’s Hezbollah, the mafia or even the Jews.
The important thing is that you implement any given order without questioning. Even your king does not raise a question.
Who the f*** are you to raise questions about my business?
When you work for us, it’s a lifetime commitment. You agreed to obey us and in return you get our protection.
Yet, be sure if we remove our protection, you and all your family are dead within a second.
There is a single lesson which you should understand. Do as you are instructed. Otherwise, your head will be at my feet without your body.
When [XXX] tells you something on my behalf obey my orders without questioning.
Faisal Almhairat: But, Your Royal Highness…
Prince Abdulaziz: Shut-up! I haven’t finished yet.
This deal is important and I need to show Hezbollah that we can transfer the money to them smoothly.
They have potentially billions which they want to be transferred.
My father is interested in this deal and he will be very pleased with us if things go well.
My father has placed me in charge of this company and has given his money to manage and I’ll not disappoint him.
So don’t disappoint me; if you want to stay alive. Hurry up to Beirut and finish the job”.
And here’s part of the transcript of another recorded conversation between the two men at the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai on April 9, 2011:
Prince Abdulaziz: Listen, my father [Prince Mishal] will speak to you about [Fi Call] and he may speak about other activities.
I’ve given him a full briefing about you and I’ve told him that you’re a trusted man and you are considered one of us. I told him that you helped move the money for us in Lebanon and I told him about your help in Nairobi.
Concerning Nairobi, XXX has said that you’ve been raising questions once again. It seems that you haven’t understood my last lesson to you over the phone.
Listen, carefully to what I’m telling you now. My father will tell [you] everything.
Don’t question my father about what he says or I swear you will not leave Dubai alive.
We’ll ship your body in pieces back to Jordan after which we will take care of the other members of your damned family.
Faisal Almhairat: Yes, Your Royal Highness.
Yup, more “peacefulness” from the “Religion of Peace.”
Clearly, doing business with these people is like doing business with the Mafia, except that the Mafia actually has honor.
Remember, anything you purchase that benefits the Saudis ends up in the Hezbollah pipeline, as Prince Abdulaziz makes crystal clear.
