ARABIAN PENINSULA AND THE INTERNATIONAL SEX SLAVE TRADE
The Arabian Peninsula inhabitants have long been involved in purchasing slaves. Up until recently, most of these slaves were purchased in Africa. With the advent of oil wealth the Saudi princes have been able to extend their slave purchases throughout the world. This has enabled the Saudi princes to become more selective and specialized in their tastes for slaves. The Saud family continue to be the prime purchasers on the international slave trade and are known as high end buyers. The Saudi Arabian Government continues to refuse to sign the United Nations treaties on slavery or other human rights issues because they do not want to be subject to their provisions. They will not sign extradition treaties even with Washington. They constantly declare they are free of slavery but will not allow international scrutiny. We will deal with the kidnaping of US male and female children by Saudi princes and their associates in this issue. We will substantiate the pattern of abuse using documented occurrence where the princes and their associates have been caught.
STATE DEPARTMENT SENSITIVITIES TOWARDS THE SAUDI ARABIAN INTERNATIONAL SLAVE TRADE
It has been an open secret in Washington that the State Department has been extremely sensitive to criticism of its actions regarding Saud Arabia and its princes. There has been an unusual amount of personnel turnover at the Saudi Arabian desk where officials showing the slightest tendency towards ethics and morality are either transferred or terminated to make an example to others. Why the State Department sensitivity? There are things going on in Saudi Arabia which are so embarrassing to Washington that if the United States citizenry knew, their worst fears about Washington would be corroborated. We will deal with one of these sensitivities in this issue, child abduction by Saudi princes. This is one of several issues we have been reluctant to publish because of the emotional ramifications to families of children who have been abducted around the world in general and the United States in particular. We had to balance what the Saud princes involved in these abductions would do upon publication. In considering publishing this article against the potential benefits of making known their actions, we chose the latter. The humanitarian action would be for the Saudi Arabian Government to return the sex slaves to their US families so they could receive hospitalization and rehabilitation. We believe this will be considered impractical because of the numbers as well as the legal and political ramifications.
We have seen time and time again US media reported scandals when slaves of Saudi princes and their associates brought into the United States try to escape. The State Department then intervenes on behalf of the Saudi princes with diplomatic or retroactive diplomatic immunity. We initially became aware of non-parental child abductions by Saudi princes when a US citizen enslaved and tortured by King Fahd’s nephews was told by a guard in their palace prison the last person to inhabit his cell was a “US girl child whore slave”. We soon found the extensive nature of the non-parental abductions of US children by Saudi princes and their procurers.
This room eerily looks like the room in Kuwait used by the Iraqis to torture Kuwaitis during the gulf war. This cell is in the Eastern province of Saudia Arabia within King Fahd’s nephews’ palace and is where the “US child whore slave” was held.
MIDDLE EAST TIMES SPEAKS OUT ON SAUDI PRINCES SEX SLAVES
The Middle East Times reports: “There’s no capability for reform, no strong character to stop the princes from corruption. You’d need someone to line tens of them up against the wall and shoot them, they’re so used to spending this amount of money. You couldn’t tell them — you don’t need 20 whores for the night, just one or two. Or you’ve got 20 dwarves in the palace, do you need to get two or three whores for every one? Someone like Prince Bishai bin Abdel Aziz — that’s one real debauched individual. Try to stop him and he’ll come and kill you.” L105 The Saudi princes dehumanize child sex slaves obtained through their sex rings by demeaning them and calling them whores so as not to come into conflict with Saudi religious tenets.
US CHILD SEX SLAVES
There is a thriving industry of international child sex slavery within the United States. It has gone unabated for decades covered up by the assertiveness of Washington lobbyists representing the perpetrating countries, especially Saudi Arabia. Saudi princes are the high end buyers in the US child sex slave market and demand the best product. How does the US sex slave trade operate?
The National Center for Missing & Exploited children reports: “Child pornographers (and pimps), like other sex offenders, seek victims in places where youth gather: shopping malls, fast food establishments, nonalcoholic clubs, video game arcades, bus stations and through unethical ‘modeling’ agencies. The fact that juveniles are being recruited from the community both for pornography and prostitution is most disturbing … runaways were spotted by pimps loitering in bus stations who approached the teenagers almost as they exited the buses. … A primary method of procuring a juvenile for prostitution is through the use of feigned friendship and love. … They (procurers) evaluated what the young woman needed, created the dependency, and then took advantage of that dependency. … if a teenager was a runaway the pimp would find shelter for her … Through practice, many child molesters have developed a real knack for spotting vulnerable victims.” L106 This is a favored recruitment method commonly used by procurers to obtain children of both sexes for their own use or sale. Again, among the most prominent high end purchasers within the international child sex industry are Saudi princes. Saudi princes will also “special order” children through a picture of the child in a media or give a description of a desired child. In these cases the child is “snatched” from in front of their house, coming from school or at a store while with a parent. The child is in Saudi Arabia before the local police develop a search procedure.
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children further reports; “pimps placed legitimate advertisements in newspapers and interviewed women for secretarial positions. They told female applicants that no job was available or that it had already been filled. They then attempted to date the applicants. With continued contact the pimp worked on the woman’s weaknesses and tried to find out if she needed large sums of money. The pimps also placed advertisements for dancers, models or escort services. Showcasing was another technique in which applicants performed acts that were videotaped. While videotaping, the pimps tried to discover if the young women were interested in making large sums of money. They (procurers) wanted to be identified as mind controllers, experts in understanding the vulnerabilities and dependencies of women and men” L107 With quality product in hand, procurers will then send videos to Saudi princes in an attempt to sell the child. If the Saudi prince is interested he may ask that delivery be made near his plane in order to make a swift exit to Saudi Arabia.
KING FAHD’S SONS’ LOS ANGELES SEX RING
King Fahd’s sons’ control their child sex ring from their Beverly Hills palaces. They learned from the Al-Fassi palace sex scandals in Beverly Hills during the 1980’s and rent motels away from their palaces to conduct orgies with children procured for them. Around these motels they have a cordon of US security guards. An inner cordon is made up of the princes body guards, usually foreign. The younger the child the more desirable. These children are brought up through the sex ring channel to the point of purchase under the modeling or acting ruses of going to a shoot or set in Saudi Arabia. Upon purchase, children are then taken by limousine directly to the Saudi prince’s plane at Los Angeles airport. As we mentioned in our prior newsletters, Washington allows Saudi princes and their entourage to circumvent customs and immigration which allows them to ship their child sex slaves out of the US without need of the customary passport. The children are then escorted directly onto the Saudi princes plane and flown to Saudi Arabia never to be seen again.
PRINCE JEFRI’S SEX SLAVES
These girls were brought to Brunei in a similar manner to that used by Saudi princes. Within the US a child is generally defined as someone that is under 17 years of age. We do not know if some of the girls in the above picture are under 17 years of age or their country of origin. This rare glimpse of the international sex trade sheds light on not only what goes on in Brunei but what goes on in Saudi Arabia. King Fahd’s sons and other Saudi princes are directly involved in the international child sex industry as high end buyers. We see one of the usual enticements of a modeling job in a distant land. Life Magazine reports; “former Miss USA Shannon Marketic, in a recent lawsuit, claims she was imprisoned. She had gone there for what she believed was legitimate modeling work paying $3,000 per day … she tried to leave and was forbidden.” L108 In Miss USA’s law suite she said upon arriving she was given a physical exam by a doctor ostensibly for country health regulations. Soon after, she was given clothes to wear for the evening. She said she was escorted to a room where she all of a sudden felt drowsy and fell asleep. She awoke to find her clothes rearranged upon her body, like somebody had removed them and then redressed her. We know from the Center for Missing and Abused Children that pedophiles keep photo/video libraries of their victims. It is reasonable to believe there are pictures/videos of Miss USA taken of her without her knowledge while unconscious. Even so, she was one of the lucky girls being high profile and whose parents knew of her whereabouts. Washington still denies the international child sex rings prey upon US children. US based child abduction organizations funded by Washington will not admit on the record to the international child sex rings preying upon US children for fear of loosing their funding. An old Washington maxim is: “He who controls the investigation wins.” Miss USA lost her law suit because the State Department granted Immunity. The abducted children and their parents always lose out to foreign policy considerations of the politicians and their lobbyist associates who represent countries like Brunei and Saudi Arabia. When members of an international sex ring are caught Washington allows them freedom from criminal and civil actions by either giving them diplomatic immunity, retroactive diplomatic immunity or other State Department protection under the Foreign Sovereign Immunity Act.
US MODEL DISAPPEARS
A new model comments: “At first I shared an apartment with two other models, one … I forget what her name was, who was there for three weeks and then she was gone. Disappeared … I know what I was getting myself into. I wasn’t like the naive girl from Podunk that came in and got drugged at a party and sold to the Arabs!” L109
ANOTHER MODEL DISAPPEARS
“Which one (international model) disappeared on a (film) shoot with a nonexistent Saudi Arabian magazine, ending up who knows where?” L110 Middle East businessmen, and others get into the relatively small-time modeling game where most of the abuse occurs.” L111 John Casablancas as founder of Elite modeling was accused by Ilene Ford of Ford modeling of introducing models to; “disgusting — one day it was Arabs, the next day it was Jews from New York”. L112
A runway agent at the New York international modeling agency Wilhelmina reports: “A lot of Arabs were storming Europe looking for beautiful young girls. A lot of girls made a lot of money not modeling” L113 It should be noted “Arabs” was a term used to connote Gulf citizens, especially Saudi princes and unfairly construed towards all Arabs.
One should not think all Saudi princes participate in the international child sex trade industry. It is a small but apparent number. We do not have the intent to contribute to a mistaken stereotype that causes both fear and disgust in the hearts of parents. Some of this fear is created for political reasons. We are attempting to sunlight this shadowy practices of child sex slavery so that parents of the world in general and the US in particular will be more cautious with their children. If we can save but one child from the clutches of these few Saudi princes, we will feel gratified. We also would like Washington to stop turning a blind eye and deaf ear to what some Saudi princes do in this country. We must stop Prince Bandar’s Washington retainers from selling the human rights of US citizens to these Saudi princes.
