Al-Qaeda Chief Ayman al-Zawahiri urged Saudis to rise up against the regime of Al-Saud, who described as the “one of the worse regimes in terms of corruption.”
"Why don't you rise while you are the sons of the proud and strong tribes that look down upon death in order to lift the humiliation and the oppression?" Zawahiri asked on Thursday in a video translated by the SITE Intelligence Group.
"Why don't you follow the example for your brothers in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen and the Levant?"
"It has been nearly a year now since the Arab peoples rose against their rulers. They rose in the west and north, and you don't move," the Egyptian-born Zawahiri said in the video.
"My noble brothers, why are you patient with the rule of the family of Saud, while it is one of the worse regimes in terms of corruption?" he asked.
