This is indeed a great lost to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We lost the Custodian to the Two Holy Mosques. My condolences go to his widow Princess Jawhara Binti Ibrahim al-Ibrahim, the new King Abdullah Ibn Abd Aziz, the new Crown Prince Sultan and the entire members of Saudi Royal House as well as to all people of Saudi Arabia.

May he rest in peace.

:confused: I saw it on Good Morning America. Is the King Abdullah a nice guy? Why did his half brother take over?? Sorry the questions the only thing I know about Saudi Arabia is oil.
Here is one pic of the new king from Getty.

yes he is .

madonna23 08-01-2005 04:04 PM

my condolences to the family and to Saudi Arabia.

I have a general question: why pass on to half-brothers/brothers? why not sons? is it wise to have an aged crown prince?

houri 08-01-2005 04:06 PM

I did hear in TV that prince Charles will attend the funeral , do any one know if there are any other royals will be there .

I heard in TV that in constitution that who should be the king must be the fittest one of the sons of the founder of the kingdom , and who became the king must chose one of his brothers as crown prince .

Yes. King Fahd, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, has been in and out of the hospital in recent months.

May his soul rest in peace.
