The internet is a wondrous thing. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can discover that the main benefactor
to the Saudi telethon
is Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.
Youll remember he is the prince to whom Rudy Giuliani returned a $10 million donation after the prince suggested U.S. policies in the Middle East contributed to the September 11 attacks,
per CNN. Prince Alwaleed is described as the single largest Arab investor in U.S. corporations, and Forbes magazine listed him as the sixth richest person in the world in 2001. A collaborative effort by TIME and CNN journalists in December named him among the 25 most influential global executives, defined as one of those few CEOs who "exert a broader, lasting influence - creating new industries and reshaping markets and leadership styles
. With approximately $16 billion in holdings, the Prince has major financial positions in some of the world's best known companies, including Citigroup, News Corp. (Fox), AOL Time Warner, Motorola, Four Seasons Hotel, Apple, Teledesic, Kodak, Euro Disney, and Planet Hollywood.
(Mideastinsight.org). He is the nephew of Saudi Arabia's current ruler, King Fahd Bin AbdulAziz Alsaud, and of Crown Prince Abdullah Bin AbdulAziz Alsaud.
There are quite a few powerful interests who would prefer not to have the Israelis expose Saudi Arabia as the mother of all terrorism.
