A close and dear Western friend

The Angry Arab and an exclusive:

A Saudi scandal…in London. One of the divorcees of King `Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, Princess Al-`Unud Al-Fayiz, fled Saudi Arabia to London. She was willing to speak about her bitter experience, and an Arab journalist taped hours of interviews with her, to publish as her memoirs. The princess feared for her life, and the Saudi government through its intelligence service was eager to bring her back to the Kingdom. I was provided the transcript of those long interviews although I don’t own the copyright to use: they belong to the person who interviewed her. Now, the Princess has suddenly disappeared, I am told, and I would not be surprised if the British government helped to smuggle her back to the Kingdom to please the Saudi King.
