Late last month Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman made a speech about stuff.
>"We are returning to what we were before - a country of moderate Islam that is open to all religions and to the world," the 32-year-old prince said.

>"We will not spend the next 30 years of our lives dealing with destructive ideas. We will destroy them today," he added. "We will end extremism very soon."

Now he's heading a "anti-corruption" crackdown against political opponents which has resulted in a bunch of princes and ministers being jailed in a Ritz-Carlton, and a helicopter crash that killed another prince and a number of officials.

>Before the arrests on Saturday of his fellow royals and former ministers on corruption allegations, Prince Mohammed had stripped the religious police of their arrest powers and expanded the space for women in public life, including promising them the right to drive.

>Dozens of hard-line clerics have been detained, while others were designated to speak publicly about respect for other religions, a topic once anathema to the kingdom’s religious apparatus.

>All clerics interviewed for this article spoke on condition of anonymity for fear that they, too, would be arrested for breaking with the government line.

>“They did a pre-emptive strike,” one cleric said of the arrests. “All those who thought about saying no to the government got arrested.”

>Recently I asked a Saudi friend why Salman chose Crown Prince Mohammed as his successor, given that he is not his oldest son. The answer: “The King thinks Mohammed is the toughest. He’ll pull the trigger when he needs to.” This weekend, he did just that.

Depends if he can bring his opponents to heel forcefully enough to keep everybody else from trying anything, which he seems to have already started doing.

Though Trump has already pledged support for the king and prince since they let him touch THE ORB, so lol if you think Russia and Iran won't start supporting the Wahhabis just to fuck with the KSA and the US.

there are Shia dominant regions in the KSA which have a lot of people with grudges against the ruling family, that Iran can support. No need to for the bottom of the barrel Wahhabis, even in the KSA.
