    What is going on over there?? MSM made it seem like the young (idk he looks 30-40yo) Crown Prince was running the Kingdom since the former king died and was the de facto king. This news says otherwise. Can a Saudi give us the reality of what's going on?

    Saudi Arabia's King Salman has named his son, Mohammed bin Salman, as heir, in a major reshuffle announced early on Wednesday.

    A royal decree removed Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, 57, as next-in-line to the throne and replaced him with Mohammed bin Salman, 31, who was previously the deputy crown prince.

    According to the official Saudi Press Agency, the newly announced crown prince was also named deputy prime minister.

    He already oversees a vast portfolio as defence minister and head of an economic council tasked with overhauling the country's economy.

    Some royal observers had long suspected his rise to power under his father's reign might also accelerate his ascension to the throne.

    The young prince was little known to Saudis and outsiders before Salman became king in January 2015. He had previously been in charge of his father's royal court when Salman was the crown prince.

    It was expected,as MBS was active in every affair of kingdom he is de facto king since his father became king. MBS is overexcited man it will be destructive for the kingdom if he became king in future,because he was behind yeman war propaganda and new IMA and now war mongering against Qatar.may Allah help muslims from these kind of stupid people.king Abdullah was the best man in saud dynasty .

    Fantastic news! This really made my day!

    MBS is going to open up / liberalize Saudi Arabia.

    Saudi Arabia will change for the better under his leadership.

    Was it really a surprise? I don't think so. What is surprising is why it took so long for this to happen. This is the natural trend in an absolute monarchy. Bloodline always speaks louder than qualification in a monarchy and that is why it is abandoned by most modern states and this is also exactly the reason why our so-called allies love to have this kind of rule in the Muslim world. Though they don't want it for themselves but they say it is good for us.


    I think the king and his son are blaming the ousted crown prince for their failure in Qatar.

    We have yet to see a fully zealous Saud.

    No one in modern Saudi will have as much of an influence as this guy, barely 32 years old.

    infighting in house of Saud? anyways MBS is believed to be progressive and popular leader which is good for people of Arabia. he is also in charge of industrialization.
