“There is no doubt that the dramatic moves over the past few weeks- detaining supporters of political Islam-to allowing women to drive- and now the beginning of a much needed anti corruption effort that not only upends the entire Saudi social strata but effectively shuts down illicit behavior. To date, and due to the country's sizable youth population who support MBS, the Saudi revolution is occuring before our eyes,” the analyst added.
He also notes that the Trump Adminstration fully supports the Saudi anti-corruption campaign because the cleaning of corrupt practices in the Kingdom helps to guarantee foreign investor confidence in projects related to ARAMCO, Red Sea Resorts, Saudi Arabia Military Industry (SAMI), and NEOM. The binary relationship between the US and Saudi Arabia are clear.
“Saudi Arabia's epic changes are still ongoing. The Kingdom is moving quickly with dramatic actions in term of the relationship between "mosque and state" as the foundations of the Saudi state are transformed in to what historians refer to as the Fourth Saudi State. The Custodianship of the Two Holy Mosques is undergoing a clear restructuring,” Karasik stated.
