FATHER: Faisal bin Abdulaziz:

    1. Iffat Al-Thunayan:
      1. Born: 1916, Istanbul, Turkey
      2. Died: February 17, 2000 @ 84 years of age, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
      3. Spouse: Faisal of Saudi Arabia (m. 19321975)

        Iffat was a dark blond with bright eyes.[SUP][6][/SUP] She liked to garden roses. She was a fluent French-speaker and loved to read. She was remarkably well organized.[SUP][2[/SUP][SUP]][/SUP][SUP][14][/SUP]When her aunt Jawhara was incapacitated, Iffat cared for her.[SUP][1][/SUP]
        She appeared at many state functions and received female dignitaries. She traveled far and wide across Saudi Arabia. Her palace had an open-door policy which allowed any Saudi citizen to visit her.[SUP][2][/SUP] She was rarely ever photographed in public and she never appeared on television.[SUP][14]

        In 1931, Prince Faisal met Iffat for the first time while she was undertaking a Makkah pilgrimage with her aunt.[SUP][2][/SUP] Prince Faisal, who served as viceroy of the Hijaz, took Iffat back to Turkey with her aunt.[SUP][3][/SUP] However, there is another report about their meeting for the first time, stating that they first met in Istanbul in 1932 when Prince Faisal visited the city following an official visit to Russia.[SUP][10][/SUP] It follows that he and Iffat went to Jeddah together after this incident.[SUP][10][/SUP][SUP][9][/SUP] They married in Jeddah in 1932[SUP][11][/SUP] and lived in Mecca.[SUP][9][/SUP]
        Because neither spoke the other's language, they taught each other. They had nine children[SUP][4][/SUP] five sons and four daughters. Iffat was the mother of Mohammed, Bandar, Saud al Faisal foreign minister, Turki, Abdul Rahman, Lulwah, and Haifa.[SUP][12][/SUP] Four of their children learned Turkish at home. Iffat became a fluent Arabic-speaker but never lost her Turkish accent.[SUP][2][/SUP]

        Their sons are very educated and are alumni of Princeton, Harvard, Georgetown, Sandhurst, and Cranwell. She contracted foreign tutors to educate her daughters. The daughters later received additional education in Switzerland. In stark contrast, only 6 of the 107 children of Faisal's older brother Saud even completed high school.[SUP][2][/SUP][SUP][13][/SUP][SUP][14]
        [/SUP]

        In 1943, Prince Faisal and Princess ffat established the boarding school Taif model school for boys and girls.[SUP][17][/SUP] Many children of the extended royal family, including their own, attended. Majority of the teachers were Egyptian or Yemenis. The girls' section was strictly for daughters of the extended royal family.[SUP][2][/SUP]
        In 1955, she initiated Saudi Arabia's first private school for women in Jeddah the Dar Al Hanan (literally "House of Affection").[SUP][17][/SUP] one of her younger daughters attended Dar Al Hanan.[SUP][17][/SUP] The name of the school is derived from the Quran. Its starting class had 15 students.[SUP][2][/SUP] In 1956, she donated money and land to build anorphanage for girls where they would also be educated.[SUP][10][/SUP] She also founded a first college for girls in Riyad, called Kulliyat ul Banat, in 1960.[SUP][18][/SUP]
        In 1967, she launched the Nahdah Al Saudiyyah, an organization that educated illiterate Riyadh women.[SUP][2][/SUP] In the 1970s, Iffat started the country's first community college for women.[SUP][19][/SUP]
        In August 1999, she established Effat University adjacent to Dar Al Hanan[SUP][2][/SUP] just months before her death. Effat University is the kingdoms first private, non-profit womens college.[SUP][20][/SUP]
        She frequented many graduation ceremonies. Her motto was Educate yourself. Be good mothers. Bring up perfect Saudis. Build your country." Her other motto was "The mother can be a school in herself if you prepare her well".[SUP][21][/SUP][SUP][22][/SUP]
        The Princess Iffat Al-Thunayan Prize recognizes accomplishments of women.[SUP][23][/SUP]

Had there been no Saudi and GCC help to Pakistan , especially after Shah of Iran ouster , the attitude of India would have been much more aggressive with Pakistan . The time period 1947 to 1984 when Pakistan developed nuke was very dangerous for us . The time period 1979 to 1987 was very dangerous as shah a strategic partner was gone . Ayub,Yahya,Bhutto and Zia realized the importance of Saudia and GCC to counterbalance India . Said All Faisal gave chance to Muslim Ummah to solve all three crisis first before they approached others , They invited OIC to end Iran Iraq war , they offered Muslims to solve Kuwait Iraq issue and even his request to sendPakistani and Turkish troops to Yemen was an effort to give Muslim countries a chance to solve this issue themselves.

The body of former Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal has arrived in Jeddah on Saturday, two days after his death in Los Angeles, Al-Arabiya news site reported.

A flag-draped coffin of the former Saudi foreign minister was shown on Al Arabiya News Channel being unloaded from a plane in Jeddah's King Abdulaziz International Airport.

He is to be buried in Makkah later in the night after funeral prayers at the Grand Mosque, Al Arabiya said.

Prince Saud died on Thursday at the age of 75, two months after he stepped down as foreign minister after 40 years in service for health reasons.

Prince Saud retained an influential position in Saudi foreign policy circles even after his replacement, serving as an official adviser to King Salman, who took power in January, and was sometimes present when foreign leaders met the monarch.
