    The Duran and Al-Masdar News both report that the prince died when his security contingent got into a firefight with regime gunmen attempting to make an arrest.

    Prince Aziz (44) was the youngest son of King Fahad.

    The Duran’s Adam Garrie points out that Prince Abdul Aziz was deeply involved in Saudi Oger Ltd, a company which until it ceased operations in the summer of this year, was owned by the Hariri family. Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri was punitively in charge of the company until it ceased operations.

    What do you think? Is this just a regular purge to consolidate power or an ideological purge? Does bin Salman really intend to eradicate radical Islam?

    This is indeed a power consolidation by the young heir apparent! I have no doubts about it. Also, the young heir apparent may well turn out to be a visionary. His recent moves to crack down on the religious power blocs within the country, grant phased rights to women (baby steps yet, but these will lay the foundations of steps further along the road if he is able to carry out his agenda), purge of the palace and other institutions of State power - all point towards badly needed reforms tailored to the Saudi society and keeping in mind the ruthlessness required to rule over the disparate tribes that compose the Arabs (please note that Arabs was never and is not synonymous with Islam).

    The writing is there on the walls - and I guess the young price understands it - Saudis are associated with wahabis and most of the terror outfits are identified with their ideology. Iran is emerging as an important challenger to this rabid philosophy and has buffed it's credentials in the middle east by undertaking operations against ISIS and AQ affiliates.

    With increment in terror strikes within mainland US and Europe, and a restlessness in the population within these over the issue, the day is not far when a call for action against the home source is raised. That the US shale has undermined the importance of Saudi Arabia to oil and changing economic parameters and thrusts further erode the pre-eminence of Saudis in the energy calculus, further indicates the position of Saudi Arabia is increasingly appearing threatened.

    Let us see how this plays out.

    Looks like Bin Salman is doing this to project himself as good guy to the masses and western world. This should be seen as social, political and economical change in KSA, soon they'll have to replicate UAE model to encourage more people to KSA for tourism bcoz importance of oil is diminishing very rapidly and they have very limited options available.

    This might start a bloody civil war and create circumstances like what happened to Mongols. They all eventually fought and killed each other. And became weak with no power left to control anyone. Even the Rajputs whotook sides in these succession battles were left weakend to the extent that they werenot able to fight Marathas also.

    These Saudis sided with Britain against Ottomon empire...
    This monarchy is US puppet, India should exploit this puppet for cheaper oil deals and employing more Hindus in gulf jobs.
