(Excerpted from Chapter 911: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)
The Eight Families and their Four Horsemen progeny find Islamic fundamentalism quite congruent to the global monopoly capitalism from which they continue to derive their wealth.
Both ideologies advocate centralized control, intolerance of opposition, rule by decree and a return to feudalistic rule by monarchy. They share common enemies in nationalism and socialism, which seek to redistribute wealth and power. Many times throughout history the Illuminati bankers have turned to Islamists to terrorize popular nationalist movements that aimed to wrest control over their nations from the bankers’ IMF/World Bank program of global domination.
The Knights Templar worked with the Assassins to carry out Crusade-era plots against Saracen nationalists. The founder of the Assassins was Hasan bin Sabah, who shares names with the Kuwaiti ruling Hashemite clan. The latter had been employed by the British to repel the Turks from the oil-rich Persian Gulf region by the end of the 18th Century. After WWII CIA Director Allen Dulles- cousin of the Rockefellers- cut a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood-Benoist-Mechin, whose center lies in the Wahhabist House of Saud. The deal was cut in Lausanne, Switzerland- home to Otto Skorzeny’s Nazi International- and may have furthered CIA MK-ULTRA mind control efforts via Muslim Brotherhood knowledge of the mind-controlled Assassins.
The Eight Families and their surrogate intelligence agencies backed Islamic fundamentalists during the CIA overthrow of the leftist Sukarno government in Indonesia in 1964.  When the Shah of Iran was deposed, the CIA and British intelligence provided fundamentalist Ayatollah Khomeini with a list of leftist Tudeh Party leaders whom they wished exterminated. In Afghanistan the CIA launched its biggest covert operation since Vietnam, a $3.8 billion campaign which backed Gulbuddin Hekmatyar’s Hezbi-i Isbmi acid-throwing extremists in their proxy war against a succession of socialist governments in Kabul. These Frankensteins were then deployed throughout Central Asia and the Balkans to terrorize governments unfriendly to Four Horsemen and Eight Families hegemony.
Israeli Mossad uses the fundamentalist Hamas as a fifth column against the nationalistic Palestinian President Yasser Arafat and has funded Egyptian Islamic Jihad along with fundamentalists in Jordan.  Egyptian President Anwar Sadat- a staunch banker ally- encouraged Islamists in his country as a counterbalance to pro-Nasser leftist groups. The CIA backed Islamists in Somalia to tear that country apart for Big Oil. The House of Saud has financed many of these efforts. As recently as 1996, according to the London Observer, British MI6 used al Qaeda operatives in Libya in an attempt to assassinate leftist President Mohamar Qaddafi.
Osama bin Laden supervised the building of CIA terrorist training camps at Khost and held accounts at BCCI. He did so as an emissary of the Muslim Brotherhood House of Saud, once stating, “To counter these atheist Russians, the Saudis chose me as their representative in Afghanistan. I set up my first camp where these volunteers were trained by Pakistani and American officers. The weapons were supplied by the Americans, the money by the Saudis.”
Is it any wonder then that 15 of the 19 hijackers on 911 were Saudi? Or that 24 members of the bin Laden family were allowed to fly on private jets to a “secret assembly point in Texas” shortly after 911, when all other air traffic in the US was grounded, so that the family could evacuate to Saudi Arabia. Raytheon even provided a jet which carried Saudi royals from Tampa to Lexington, KY. No Saudis were held for questioning by the FBI. On the evening of 911, Saudi Prince Bandar- House of Saud point man in funding CIA covert operations for decades- stood smoking a cigar on the White House balcony alongside President Bush. 
Agha Khan is the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose modern-day tentacles include the House of Saud, Hamas, Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the Shi’ite Ismaili sect, Louis Farrakhan’s Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda. The House of Saud serves as financier to all of these neo-Crusaders.
But the Illuminati banking families and the Islamists share common roots that precede Crusade-era secret societies. The GCC monarchs are descendents of the Hashemites who employed secret societies such as the Karmathites, the Druses, the Brotherhood of the Nine and the Assassins to carry out their political skullduggery. These Muslim secret societies’ power center was the Grand Lodge of Cairo, which was run by the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood- like the Illuminati bankers- descends from the Brotherhood of the Snake, which oversaw the slave-labor construction of the Egyptian pyramids possibly overseen by Annunaki Serpent Kings. Illuminati spiritual father King Solomon frequented the same Grand Lodge of Cairo as the Muslim Brotherhood. 
The Eight Families emerged from a tangle of secret societies- Freemasons, Knights Templar, Teutonic Knights, Rosicrucians, Cabalist Order of Melchizidek, Knights of Malta and Knights of St. John’s Jerusalem. These groups also descend from the Sumerian and Egyptian Brotherhood of the Snake, later carrying out the political machinations of the Genoese banking families who funded the expansion of the Roman Empire and who now control the City of London.
The fortunes of the Muslim Brotherhood House of Saud became intertwined with those of the Illuminati when ARAMCO discovered oil in the Kingdom in 1938. From this moment forward the old Crusader pals reunited, working together to control the world using oil as their centerpiece. While the House of Saud represents the Muslim Brotherhood, the Saudi branch of Freemasonry is concentrated among ARAMCO executives and the SAMA White Father bankers. Other Gulf State Hashemite rulers were cut into the Illuminati/Muslim Brotherhood global petro-hegemony scheme in 1981 with the formation of the GCC.
In late November 2002 Newsweek reporter Michael Isakoff broke a story revealing that Princess Haifa- wife of Saudi Ambassador to the US Prince Bandar- had written checks to two Saudi intermediaries, who delivered the proceeds to two of the alleged 911 hijackers. Within days of the revelations, the two Saudis were allowed to leave the US before a credible investigation of the money trail had even gotten under way.
Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) accused the Bush Administration of protecting the House of Saud by blocking a meaningful investigation into Saudi involvement in 911. Leaders of a Joint Congressional Task Force investigating 911 accused both the FBI and CIA of withholding classified documents from their probe.
It was Bandar who twenty years earlier had personally donated $20 million to the Nicaraguan contras. Were his wife and the other wealthy Saudis with whom the al Qaeda money trail was intertwined, simply playing the same paymaster role the Saudis have played for the CIA for decades?
