Millions of Americans do not view Saudi Arabia in the way our government does, as a benevolent monarchy in the middle of the world’s largest sand pit with a lot of oil that just wants great relations with its trading partners and natives.
In fact, most Americans who were alive on 9/11 and old enough to understand what was going on, remember that 15 of the 19 hijackers who destroyed the World Trade Center and killed nearly 3,000 Americans, were originally from Saudi Arabia.
Our intelligence community and foreign policy apparatus have long known that factions within the Saudi Arabian government support terrorism, and in particular, jihadists known to target the West. As noted by the CATO Institute, a libertarian-leaning think tank, in 2001:
The Saudi government has been the principal financial backer of Afghanistan’ s odious Taliban movement since at least 1996. It has also channeled funds to Hamas and other groups that have committed terrorist acts in Israel and other portions of the Middle East.
Worst of all, the Saudi monarchy has funded dubious schools and “charities” throughout the Islamic world. Those organizations have been hotbeds of anti-Western, and especially, anti-American, indoctrination.
Now, it seems, this state sponsor of jihad and terrorism is set to supply vaccines to the world, having bought a vaccine manufacturing operation from the Danish government, as reported by the Gatestone Institute, which tracks global jihadist operations.

“Selling the crucial manufacture of vaccines to an ideologically hostile country, which might – for whatever reason – suddenly decide to shut down production, does not sound like a good idea… Those who say that the Saudis are merely interested in profit, just like everybody else, should know better,” said Rachel Ehrenfeld, an expert on the financing of terrorism.
A year ago, Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman announced the creation of the Public Investment Fund, which eventually plans to control some $2 trillion in a bid to help move the country’s economy away from its primary source – oil. To do that, the Prince announced that the monarchy would sell shares in the parent company of Aramco, the Saudi oil giant, in a bid to transform it into a conglomerate of other companies and interests. It’s likely that the purchase of the Danish State Serum Institute by the Aljomaih Group is part of that portfolio diversification.
The problem is, the purchasing group has given donations to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic extremist organization.
Interestingly, the Gatestone Institute notes, Saudis boycotted Danish goods in 2006, after the publication of cartoons depicting Mohammad. What changed is anyone’s guess.
But it does make you wonder how much trust Danish consumers should have in Saudi-manufactured vaccines.
More about the purchaser: The Aljomaih Group is a Saudi family dynasty, Gatestone notes, and is led by Sheikh AbdulAziz Hamad Aljomaih, the largest stockholder in Arcapita Bank in Bahrain, where he is also the chairman. The bank features a so-called Sharia Supervisory Board, which consists of Islamic scholars who ensure the bank’s dealings and transactions comply with Sharia law.

There are a number of concerns here. First, while it may seem as though the Saudis’ diversification is afoot with this purchase, it could also be a way for a supporter of strict Sharia law to control the flow of vaccines into the West, which is currently inundated with Muslim migrants fleeing the war-torn region. As we have seen for the past two years, terrorist incidents have begun to increase in many countries, including France, Germany and Belgium, as more unvetted Islamists continue to pour into the continent.
Another possibility: Would the Saudis intentionally taint already toxic vaccines bound for Western countries as a means of poisoning the population? If that sounds crazy to you, imagine what you would have thought before 9/11 if someone had told you that Saudi terrorists were plotting to fly commercial planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
