How to be a “cultural monarch” in 2017
King Salman has been in power for less than a year and has shown his commitment to the kingdom’s long-held traditions of religious freedom and a strong social and economic outlook.
But for some in Saudi Arabia, a key pillar of the kingdom has become increasingly vulnerable to external threats, with many fearing the rise of extremism and an Islamic resurgence.
In his book, The Culture of the King, author Fahad Al-Jubeir writes about the ways in which the monarchy has grown increasingly vulnerable over the past five decades, as the Arab Spring has unfolded and the number of people returning to the country has increased.
The book argues that the monarchy, which is ruled by a royal council, has lost much of its social capital over the last 15 years, and it is no coincidence that this has been the case in Saudi.
In this article, CNN is taking a look at how the royal family has evolved over the years, from the time when the monarchs reign began in 1952, through to the current time, and why they are now facing a growing threat from terrorism.
In the 1960s, Saudi Arabia was a vibrant society that was full of cultural activity, according to Al-jubeir.
The monarchy enjoyed a reputation for being a place where the people lived in harmony, in harmony with their surroundings and in harmony.
Saudi Arabia became a very liberal society in the 1970s, and the country enjoyed a new, modern and modern-day culture.
The new culture had been brought to Saudi by foreign influences, particularly in the form of foreign actors, who came to Saudi Arabia to perform and to observe religious rituals.
The modern-days culture was more tolerant and inclusive than the conservative culture of the past, and people could freely express their views in this new and different way.
This modernity was not the original culture, but it was the culture that Saudi Arabia had inherited from its early history.
This is why the modern-types of culture, which Saudi Arabia inherited from the Ottoman Empire, such as music and theatre, became very popular.
In the late 1970s and early 1980s, it was also very popular to be creative, to do art and music, and to explore other ideas, Al- jubeir said.
This was not a Saudi culture.
It was an Arab culture that had been imported to the Arab world.
In that era, the Arabs and the Muslims had their own culture, the modern culture, and that was different from the Arab culture, Al jubeirs book said.
Saudi culture, in contrast, was more focused on its own history and tradition, he said.
The first Islamic wave of terrorism in Saudi in the 1980s changed the course of the monarchy’s trajectory, according the author.
Saudi’s Islamic Revolution, which began in 1979, was the first major political event that was seen as a sign of a new era in Saudi society, Al Jubeirs said.
It also marked a significant shift in the kingdom, from a very conservative society in which religious freedoms were strictly controlled, to one in which more and more people were able to express their opinions, including secular ideas.
The king’s first move to respond to the Islamic wave, in 1981, was to ban the use of the niqab, the full face covering, during public gatherings and in public gatherings for women.
Al- Jubeir points out that the royal decree was one of the first official measures that the king took to respond in a serious way to the new trend.
The next move was to expel all the foreigners from Saudi, and this was also a very major change in Saudi culture and society, according Al-jebeir.
In 1985, the king appointed the first Saudi female governor general in Saudi history.
The governor general was the country’s first female leader, who was the only woman to hold that position.
Saudi women were now allowed to take part in public affairs, which included running for political office, according a statement from the kingdom.
The new era was not without its critics.
The Saudi people had a very different view of the new culture, compared to the past and the people of the Arab countries, said the author, who served as an adviser to the Saudi foreign minister from 1992 to 2002.
In 1982, the first female member of the Saudi royal family, Princess Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, was appointed the countrys first woman ambassador to the United Nations.
Saudi officials had hoped that the new era would change the country and bring about change.
But Saudi Arabia has not been able to shake off the culture of conservatism, and there are still people who are opposed to the changes.
The government has been under pressure for years, Al Jaubeirs statement said.
In 2017, Saudi leaders are still trying to maintain the country as it was in the 1990s, but some people fear that the kingdom is heading in a very dark direction.
They are afraid that the future of the country is uncertain and that the government may be no longer able to carry out its tasks
