    Guardian: Ibn Salman wants to silence his opponents to take the throne




    The Guardian correspondent Martin Schulof wrote about the Saudi crackdown on a number of Saudi preachers and activists, some of whom have millions of followers on social media.
    "Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman launched a massive crackdown against dissidents and targeted political preachers, critics and rivals as he moves to strengthen his new position amidst a confrontation with Qatar," Schulof said.
    According to the report, the campaign led to the imprisonment of about 10 prominent preachers, the largest arrest in the history of the Kingdom of the near.
    The campaign comes after a failed attempt to resolve the three-month-old standoff between Riyadh and its allies and the small emirate of Qatar, which has refused to respond to demands to break ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran.
    The writer pointed out that the repression comes amid speculation that Prince Salman bin himself to assume the throne at the beginning of next year, according to what some expect, which was denied by the Royal Court strongly, referring to the confirmation of close to the Authority that plans were to transfer power, but based on Conditions laid down by the father of Crown Prince Salman.
    According to the report, the arrest of the preachers is a shift in the way Saudi Arabia deals with known opponents after a Saudi campaign in June against Qatar, where it imposed with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt an air, land and sea blockade on neighboring Qatar. Doha refused to respond, pointing out that the Crown Prince isolated Prince Mohammed bin Nayef is still in compulsory confinement, in addition to the eminent principals were prevented from traveling.
    The newspaper said that the crackdown aimed to neutralize the influential preachers, who the royal court saw as silent, and did not support the campaign against Qatar, which, analysts say, revealed the limited power of Saudi Arabia, rather than showing its strength.
    "This repression is mainly seen through the lens of Qatar," Schulof said. "But it is an attempt to erase any potential competition base in the home front to rise to first place, and there is still concern from anyone associated with Mohammed bin Nayef or Old guard ".
    The report notes that the official religious establishment and the media in support of the arrests, and accused the media of preachers in relation to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the General Intelligence said that the detainees had links with "external forces."
    Among the detainees is a well-known poet, university professor and well-known businessman, but the focus is on Salman al-Awda, Awad al-Qarni and Ali al-Amri, each of whom has an influence base in Saudi Arabia. Salman has more than 14 million followers on Twitter.
    "It is a risk to arrest these people in this way, but the 32-year-old crown prince has the authority to do what he wants," the senior official told the paper. "He wants full loyalty and will get rid of anyone he thinks he did not Give him this loyalty. "
    The old king has given his son wide authority to turn the kingdom's dependence on oil and change society, he said, pointing out that at the heart of his efforts to sell shares of Aramco, where economic analysts say emergency plans have been put to postpone the registration of shares in the financial markets.
    The report finds that if this is true, it is a setback to the efforts of the Prince, noting that he did not achieve the results of the confrontation with Qatar and the war in Yemen,
    The Guardian concludes its report by referring to another official saying: "The Crown Prince wants to achieve something. If he does not succeed, he will be seen as a weak person in front of his rivals, and that is what he does not want, and close associates say it is time to take the first position, The king wants to be harassed, so he does something he can to strengthen his authority, but he risks expanding more than he can.
