Irfan Nidham Ad-Din

In his massive book about his experience with Saudi media (MBC (King Fahd's brother-in-law); Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat (mouthpiece of Prince Salman); Al-Hayat (mouthpiece of Prince Khalid bin Bribe bin Sultan), Nidham Ad-Din admitted that he often could not sleep and had nightmares: that there were too many tabooes, restrictions, and censorship rules that he would never know when he may have offended the Saudi royal family.  And he is still a pathetic advocate of House of Saud, mind you.  He said that he offered Shafiq Al-Hut in his last years to write a column for Al-Hayat or Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat, and Shafiq told him that he is not in the mood to observe the various Saudi rules and restrictions.  He refused although he needed the money, he said.
