RIYADH, 12 March — Prince Alwaleed ibn Talal announced yesterday that he
has spent $1 billion on stocks over the last six months, including another $500
million on Citigroup.
“Already the world’s largest shareholder in Citigroup,
the prince’s shareholding in the world’s most profitable bank is now around $10
billion,” said a press release from his Kingdom Holding group.
“At about $43,
Citi’s share price was at too attractive a price,” the prince said in the
And he added $450 million to existing shares in AOL Time Warner.
“The price was very cheap at around $23,” the prince said.
“I believe in the
power of the AOL brand and I am already a shareholder in this global media
giant. Therefore, when the price reached lucrative levels, we decided to
increase our stake. The weakness in AOL’s stock price is temporary as it
reflects the temporary weakness in several areas in which it is involved,”
He also increased his stake in priceline.com to $100 million,

AOL BIAS - This is a growing guide to AOL political and religious bias seen
by AOL subscribers as
demanded by its Arab owners.
AOL shows political and religious bias in
its news coverage. The bias is also seen in the use of AOL message board
censorship policies. Poster's messages are deleted by AOL monitors
violating AOL's own Terms of Service, TOS.
Time Warner has taken no action
to stop the bias but has looked into it. They did nothing. AOL is
owned by Arab money.

Georgetown’s Capitulation to Radical Islam
By Joe Kaufman

FrontPageMagazine.com | Friday, January 06, 2006
Georgetown University was built with a Catholic and Jesuit identity.
This bit of information is proudly displayed on the school’s website. But
like Bethlehem in Israel, that identity is quickly being lost to a radical
strain of Islam, as a counter-terror symposium has been abandoned and a
pro-terror conference has been confirmed. Indeed, one of America’s most
prestigious universities appears to be under siege.
Fearing violent reprisal from militant Muslim members of their student
body, the school’s conference center rejected an educational symposium being
hosted by America’s Truth Forum (formerly the People’s Truth Forum), a
non-partisan, fact-based organization whose sole mission is to educate the
American people on topics of national security. In this case, the subject
matter to be discussed involved the “Underlying Roots of Terrorism: The Radical
Islamist Threat to World Peace and National Security.”...
While the counter-terror symposium was shunned, an organization
associated with violence has been awarded a forum. From February 17 - 19,
the Palestine Solidarity Movement (PSM), an activist group that has expressed
its willingness to work with Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, will be
holding its “Fifth Annual Divestment Conference” on Georgetown University’s
campus. At past events, shouts of “Kill the Jews” and “Death to Israel”
could be heard amongst the crowd. And according to a news report, during
PSM’s last conference, when a resolution to condemn terrorism was voted down,
“the delegates erupted in cheers.”
When PSM announced its event, it’s interesting to see who they sent a
press release to. A site that devotes a page to the release, Palestine
Monitor, is said by one source to be a “PRO-TERRORIST SITE.” This is easy
to understand, as the website contains numerous pages glorifying the Intifada
(uprising) against Israel. Another location that prominently displays the
press release is Ramallah Online, a hate site that equates the Jewish Star (Star
of David) with the Nazi Swastika.
Not wanting to anger its on-campus insurgency, the university has
remained hush about the event. The consideration of a small matter of
money may also be on Georgetown’s mind. The PSM conference is coming on
the heels of a $20 million donation to the school, given by a fairly effluent
Saudi sheikh, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. This is the same sheikh who had
previously donated $27 million to a telethon that raised money for the families
of suicide bombers.http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=3398EF71-9067-4C86-88D2-9A8AD51427A5

New Islamic satellite channel launched

Newspapers — Hans Henrik Lichtenberg @ 2:24 pm
Prince Alwaleed ibn Talal,
the chief executive of Saudi Arabia’s Kingdom Holding Company, has officially
launched an Islamic satellite channel seeking to project Islam as a religion of
moderation, the Arab News online daily reports. Al-Resalah (The Message) has
been broadcasting informally since last Wednesday. At a press conference on
Monday, Prince Alwaleed said the 24-hour channel would target an Arab audience,
especially young people, by projecting ‘our Arab heritage through a modern
medium.’. Al-Resalah will be the forerunner of a future English-language Islamic
channel for Western audiences.
The prince said the new Islamic network would provide a platform for a
dialogue on religious, social and economic issues affecting everyday life, but
its priority would be to counteract the misconceptions of Islam in other
societies. Tarek Alsuwaidan, the channel?s general manager, said that 40 per
cent of the programmes would be youth oriented, 30 per cent would target women
and families, and 10 per cent would focus on children, Arab News reports.

The Failure of Western Universities [incls. Middle East studies, MESA, Saudi

Kari Vogt, historian of religion at the University of Oslo, has stated
that Ibn Warraq's book "Why I am Not a Muslim" is just as irrelevant to the
study of Islam as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion are to the study
of Judaism. She is widely considered as one of the leading expert on Islam in
Norway, and is frequently quoted in national media on matters related to Islam
and Muslim immigration. People who get most of their information from the
mainstream media, which goes for the majority of the population, will thus be
systematically fed biased information and half-truths about Islam from our
universities, which have largely failed to uphold the ideal of free inquiry.
Unfortunately, this situation is pretty similar at universities and colleges
throughout the West.
London's School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), scene to a
growing number of anti-Semitic incidents from an increasingly pro-Islamic
campus, issued a threat to one of its Jewish students to cease his protests
against anti-Semitism at the University. Gavin Gross, an American, had been
leading a campaign against the deterioration of conditions for Jewish students
at SOAS, which is part of the University of London. SOAS had witnessed an
escalation of anti-Jewish activity, in both severity and frequency. At the
beginning of the year, the Islamic Society screened a video which compared
Judaism with Satanism.
Meanwhile, in a move to "promote understanding between
Islam and the West," Saudi Arabia donated about SR13 million to a leading
British museum. The officials said the money from Prince Sultan would pay for a
new Saudi and Islamic gallery, which would help to portray Islamic culture and
civilization in right perspectives. It would also help fund scholarships for
Saudi students at Oxford University.
The Saudis and other oil-rich Arabs are busy buying influence over what
Westerners hear about Islam. Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud,
a member of the Saudi Royal Family, is an international investor currently
ranked among the ten richest persons in the world. He is known in the USA for a
$10 million check he offered to New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani in
October 2001 for the Twin Towers Fund. Mayor Giuliani returned the gift when he
learned that the prince had called for the United States to "re-examine its
policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stance toward the
Prince Talal is also creating a TV channel, Al-Resalah, to target
American Muslims. He already broadcasts in Saudi Arabia. In 2005, Bin Talal
bought 5.46% of voting shares in News Corp, the parent of Fox News. In December
2005 he boasted to Middle East Online about his ability to change what viewers
see on Fox News. Covering the riots in France that fall, Fox ran a banner
saying: "Muslim riots." Bin Talal was not happy. "I picked up the phone and
called Murdoch [...] [and told him] these are not Muslim riots, these are riots
out of poverty," he said. "Within 30 minutes, the title was changed from Muslim
riots to civil riots."
