According to diplomats, the Saudi Binladin Group, founded by Osama bin laden's father, is planning an investment in Indonesia to grow basmati rice. (Rich countries launch great land grab)

The Binladin group is planning to invest some Rp14 trillion ($1.53 billion) in Southeast Sulawesi.

Prof. Dr. La Ode Masihu Kamaluddin, chief adviser to the regional governor on investment and trade, said that a Memorandum of Understanding had been signed by the regional government and Bin Laden Group in Jakarta on August 14 2008.



Bin Laden Group was represented by head of the Middle East Foodstuff Consortium, Hasan Mohammad Bin Laden (a brother of Osama bin Laden).

The signing took place at the office of the chief adviser for President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono for Middle East issues, Alwi Shihab. ( Saudi Arabia’s Bin Laden Group)

The Saudi Binladin (or Binladen) Group is a multinational construction conglomerate and holding company for the assets owned by the bin Laden family, headquartered in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.


Jersey is one of the Channel islands.

According to Inter Press Service (5 April 2007)

BCCI was the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, which the CIA used "to run guns to Hussein, finance Osama bin Laden, move money in the illegal Iran-Contra operation and carry out other 'agency' black ops." Khalid bin Mahfouz was on the board of BCCI.


In 1992, Khalid bin Mahfouz established the Muwafaq ('Blessed Relief') Foundation in the Channel Islands.

The U.S. Treasury Department called it “an al Qaeda front that receives funding from wealthy Saudi businessmen.”


Reportedly, millions of dollars were transferred to Osama bin Laden through Blessed Relief.

An audit of the Defendant National Commercial Bank of Saudi Arabia in the mid-1990s, which was then run by Khalid bin Salim bin Mahfouz, "reveals the transfer of $3 million for Osama bin Laden that traveled from the accounts of wealthy Saudi businessmen to Blessed Relief." (Yassin Al-Kadi - 9/11 Encyclopedia)

The bin Laden family and the Bush family have had investments in the Carlyle Group. (http://911review.org/Sept11Wiki/Bush1-Carlyle-BinLaden-Ties.shtml)

Carlyle holds its stake in defence firm QinetiQ through various special-purpose vehicles registered in the Channel Islands. (http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/story/0,3604,1579753,00.htm)

On 21 August 2005, Wayne Madsen reported (U.S. BUSINESS AND BUSH FAMILY TIES TO OSAMA BIN LADEN REVEALED) :

"European intelligence provided to WMR confirms that Osama bin Laden has been a major kingpin in drug shipments to Europe and North America since 1991, when he established a major drug smuggling network in Sudan and Saudi Arabia.

"WMR can also confirm that the Bush administration's cozying up to the Sudanese government (which once provided Osama Bin Laden safe haven) is another indication that the Bush family continues to engage in joint financial activities with Osama Bin Laden.

"It is likely that Sudan's southern Christian rebel leader John Garang was encouraged to enter into a peace agreement with Khartoum in a ploy for him to let down his guard. Just days after Garang became Sudan's Vice President, he was killed in a suspicious helicopter crash along the Ugandan-Sudanese border, an area where Pentagon Special Operations forces are present. As Vice President, Garang was in a position to discover Bin Laden's past and present activities in Sudan, including those that involve Bush family interests.

"While Sudan claims it no longer has any relations with Osama Bin Laden, it can now be revealed that Osama Bin Laden continues to operate the Al Shamal Islamic Bank in Sudan that was identified by the State Department in 1996 as being linked to Al Qaeda and Bin Laden.



"The 'Al Qaeda' leader invested $50 million in the bank. The bank was used in 1993 to transfer $210,000 to a bank in Tucson, Arizona to finance the purchase of a plane to fly Stinger missiles from Pakistan to Sudan. The plane was flown to Khartoum. (According to the French intelligence report, Bin Laden was still under U.S. and British intelligence control at the time of the plane purchase and in 1993 Sudan was on the State Department's state sponsors of terrorism list).

"It is significant that Al Shamal's assets were never frozen by the United States nor was it designated a terrorist-related organization. The Sudanese claim that Al Shamal is no longer in operation and the Bush administration has not countered these claims."


"The Bin Laden drug network also intersects with Geneva-based financial entities established by George H. W. Bush while he was CIA director and Vice President and President of the United States.

"Bin Laden and Bush money are held in some of the same financial tranches in Switzerland, the Isle of Man, and the Bahamas."
