    Time for Iran to step up its game and start active covert assistance to the Shia majority of the oil rich eastern regions of KSA.

    There might be a succession issue in KSA. We have to see if the successor is a moderate or a hawk.

    Defence Minister Prince Salman is the successor

    Saudi Arabia appoints new successor to King Abdullah


    Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has appointed Defence Minister Prince Salman as crown prince and heir apparent, ensuring a smooth succession at a time of tough challenges for the world's biggest oil exporter.

    The appointment, reported on state television, was announced in a royal decree one day after the burial of Crown Prince and Interior Minister Nayef, who died on Saturday.

    Crown Prince Salman becomes Abdullah's third heir after the deaths of two elder brothers in the past eight months. He has built a reputation for pragmatism and is seen as likely to continue the king's cautious domestic reforms.

    Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, a younger brother of both Salman and Nayef, was named as the new interior minister after spending several decades as deputy interior minister.

    The new crown prince will keep the defence portfolio and has been appointed deputy prime minister to King Abdullah, the royal decree said.

    Salman, 76, a half-brother of the 89-year-old Abdullah, is likely to continue with cautious social and economic reforms as well as Saudi Arabia's moderate oil pricing policy, analysts said before his appointment.

    He would also be likely to maintain the kingdom's alliances with Western and Sunni Muslim states, they said.

    And Prince Salman is around 77 years old.

    One thing is certain: succession questions are decided behind palace doors, with no public participation.

    The choice of Prince Salman at least delayed any generational change. He is said to suffer from non-life-threatening back ailments, but in recent years many senior princes have become stooped. The sight of King Abdullah and his closest brothers all in a line and bent over on wobbling canes brings into clear focus what a gerontocracy the kingdom has become.

    Prince Salman took over the Defense Ministry in November upon the death of his full brother Prince Sultan, after supervising Riyadh’s growth from a minor town of around 200,000 people to a sprawling metropolis of more than 5.5 million.

    Other Saudi cities have faltered in their development — Jidda, the commercial capital, notoriously lacks a sewage system, for example. But Prince Salman created a Riyadh development authority with a representative from each ministry to cut through the red tape.

    The prince is variously described as disciplined, active, austere, sober and traditional but not hard-line. He is considered generally popular with the family and the public, and has traveled abroad widely.

    Saudi analysts peg him as a “moderate conservative” with ties to all the competing factions within the country, from strict Islamists to liberal intellectuals pushing for political change.

    Normally I wouldn't endorse this, but given Saudi role in Afghanistan and Syria, and the violence and bloodshed it has caused the world over, that comment seems apt.

    I closely followed event leading upto the execution of Najibullah (and his brother) in Afghanistan. I must say, the dead King isn't going to Heaven for sure.

    He is better of the kings that KSA produced. And the Saudis have a good opinion of him. That is what matters at the end of the day. Would we care or would it matter if Pakis had a good opinion of Manmohan ?



    Why blame the saudis when there are enough people in Syria and elsewhere with a sectarian and extremist mindset who are eager consumers of the idealogy shipped from Saudi ? After all the saudis are only looking after their interests. Same goes for iran which is also busy meddling in middle east. I would not blame India if it induces some separatist tendencies in Pakistan..we are only looking after our interest..its the people over there who get to bed with India against their country who are to be blamed.
