WikiLeaks: Saudi princes throw boasting drink, drugs and sex parties
Saudi Arabia: In what may prove a particularly incendiary cable, US diplomats describe a world of sex, drugs and rock’n'roll behind the official pieties of Saudi Arabian royalty.
Jeddah consulate officials described an underground Halloween party, thrown last year by a member of the royal family, which broke all the country’s Islamic taboos. Liquor and prostitutes were present in abundance, according to leaked dispatches, behind the heavily-guarded villa gates as reported by Guardian UK.
The party was thrown by a wealthy prince from the large Al-Thunayan family. The diplomats said his identity should be kept secret. A US energy drinks company also put up some of the finance.
“Alcohol, though strictly prohibited by Saudi law and custom, was plentiful at the party’s well-stocked bar. The hired Filipino bartenders served a cocktail punch using sadiqi, a locally-made moonshine,” the cable said. “It was also learned through word-of-mouth that a number of the guests were in fact ‘working girls’, not uncommon for such parties.”
The dispatch from the US partygoers, signed off by the consul in Jeddah, Martin Quinn, added: “Though not witnessed directly at this event, cocaine and hashish use is common in these social circles.”
The underground party scene is “thriving and throbbing” in Saudi Arabia thanks to the protection of Saudi royalty, the dispatch said. But it is only available behind closed doors and for the very rich.
More than 150 Saudi men and women, most in their 20s and 30s, were at the party. The patronage of royalty meant the feared religious police kept a distance. Admission was controlled through a strict guest list. “The scene resembled a nightclub anywhere outside the kingdom: plentiful alcohol, young couples dancing, a DJ at the turntables and everyone in costume.”
The dispatch said the bar featured a top shelf of well-known brands of liquor, the original contents reportedly replaced with sadiqi. On the black market, they reported, a bottle of Smirnoff vodka can cost 1,500 riyals (£250) compared with 100 riyals (£16) for the locally-made vodka.
In a venture into Saudi sociology, the diplomats explained why they thought their host was so attached to Nigerian bodyguards, some of whom were working on the door. “Most of the prince’s security forces were young Nigerian men. It is common practice for Saudi princes to grow up with hired bodyguards from Nigeria or other African nations who are of similar age and who remain with the prince well into adulthood. The lifetime spent together creates an intense bond of loyalty”
The cable claimed it was easy for would-be partygoers to find a patron out of more than 10,000 princes in the kingdom. Some are “royal highnesses” with direct descent from King Abdul Aziz, while others are “highnesses” from less direct branches.
One young Saudi told the diplomat that big parties were a recent trend. Even a few years ago, he said, the only weekend activity was “dating” among small groups who met inside the homes of the rich. Some of the more opulent houses in Jeddah feature basement bars, discos and clubs. One high-society Saudi said: “The increased conservatism of our society over these past years has only moved social interaction to the inside of people’s homes.”
Gay sex and drug addicted 30-year old Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan “Fazza” Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Makthoum of Dubai. We will not go into details of the sadomasochistic gay sex orgies Hamdan keeps getting involved in, except to say we got surprised because Hamdan is the Second Coming of Arabia.
Sadomasochism, gay orgies, violence, rape, and even murders, drug and alcohol binges is nothing new with the Arabs. You come across reports of this deplorable conduct quite often from Arabs visiting Britain and other countries.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum (حمدان بن محمد بن راشد آل مكتوم) (born 14 November 1982), is the Crown Prince of Dubai, and second eldest son of HH Emir Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum. He is popularly known as Fazza, the name under which he publishes his poetry.
On 1 February 2008, Sheikh Hamdan was named as the Hereditary Prince of Dubai. He was also appointed as the Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council in September 2006. However, as of late his public appearances are reduced and we rarely find any new pictures of him, only older ones republished again and again. His website only shows two short reports about a tiny handful appearances within the past three years. In the past he was a constant and almost daily subject in the media and his pictures were blasted with tiring repetition all across the Middle East Media, his every move followed, filmed, and photographed. His marital status remain unknown to the public but he is said to have dated (purchased?) British resident Verns Buckley-Chiongbian.
When the first diplomatic Wikileaks cables were published it came to surface that the Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh “Fazza” Hamdan is actually a notorious drug and sex addict, who fly in male and female prostitutes with private planes to Dubai for weekend group sex parties.
Is the Prince finally cured off his gay sex, orgie, and drug addiction?
During his many documented and media covered travels and ventures Sheikh Hamdan has shown to have a daredevil personality with a strong passion for sports and risky stunts. It’s not unusual for people with this personality for dangers and challenges to be prone to addiction. Behind closed doors Sheikh Hamdan and his brother has been addicted to hard drugs and incessant and perverted sex orgies (with both men and women).
Fazza was appointed as the royal representative and board member of his father’s company but got momentarily replaced by his less popular and lesser attractive brother (while Fazza was in rehab?). According to the early wikileaks documents the young Hamdan’s addiction got so bad, he was taken to several secret drug rehabs around Europe but they failed to cure him.
The World Drug Report 2010, published by the UNODC, shows Saudi authorities confiscated 12.8 metric tons of amphetamine in 2008. A total of 24.3 metric tons of amphetamine were seized worldwide that year, with 15.3 metric tons seized in the wider Middle East.
The Arab royal family, who consist of several thousand family members (!), have many who are deeply addicted to drugs and orgies. Often they travel to destinations around the world to conduct shameless sex, drug and alcohol fueled orgies in our hotel rooms – far away from the eyes and ears of servants or people who may get access to the information.
