At some point, it seems like Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and the rest of the GCC would simply admit they are funding and supporting jihadists and al-Qaeda terror groups across the world. After all, an official public announcement is, at this point, merely a formality since it is apparent to all who follow the developments of international terrorism and geopolitics with even a slight amount of critical thought.

Still, despite the ample evidence that GCC member states are some of the largest financial supporters of al-Qaeda, the Western mainstream press has opted for the “shadowy” and “wealthy Islamist donation” theory of al-Qaeda funding. But even with such staunch cover provided by a media apparatus itself tightly controlled by relevant Western governments and intelligence agencies, the myriad of connections between the jihadist terrorist organization and the GCC cannot be fully hidden.

For instance, a documentary film maker working for the BBC has recently brought back evidence of collaboration between the Saudi-led coalition and al-Qaeda fighters in Yemen.

The film maker, as part of her mission, filmed fighters from the United Arab Emirates and those from “jihadist” brigades. The film maker discovered that, not only were the jihadists and the coalition members fighting the same enemy (Houthi rebels opposed to the government of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi) but that they were doing so in a coordinated fashion.

The coalition publicly denies supporting the jihadists but Safa al-Ahmad, the BBC film maker discovered just the opposite upon her trip to Taiz, an embattled city under control of jihadist fighters but essentially surrounded and cut off by Houthi rebels.
