New ZOA Report Documents Saudi Government Support For Terrorists
April 22, 2002

On Eve of Saudi Leader’s
Visit to the U.S.

NEW YORK- On the eve of Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah’s visit to the United States, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has released a new report documenting the Saudi government’s support for anti-American and anti-Israel terrorist groups.

Prince Abdullah is scheduled to meet with President Bush at the president’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, on Thursday, April 25.

The new ZOA report, titled Saudi Arabian Support for Terrorist Groups, shows:

* The Saudis refused to help the U.S. capture Osama Bin Laden when he was located in Sudan in 1996.

* The Saudis sabotaged an attempt by the U.S. in 1995 to arrest Imad Mughniyah, a leader of Hezbollah, which has murdered hundreds of American citizens.

* The Saudi government praises Palestinian Arab suicide bombings against Israelis; provides payments of $5,333 to every bomber’s family; finances the Hamas terrorist group, which has murdered hundreds of Israelis and at least 19 Americans; and has been sponsoring a telethon that has so far raised $100-million to support the Palestinian Arab “intifada” against Israel.

ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said: “Saudi Arabia has been the single largest recipient of U.S. foreign military aid over the past decade, receiving $33.5-billion. Does the American public really want its tax dollars given to a Saudi regime that supports anti-American, anti-Israel terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah, which have murdered hundreds of Americans…?”
