This paper reviews the stages of Saudi policy towards the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and monitors the most important changes that affected it after the Egyptian revolution, whether internal changes in both countries, or Arab, regional and international changes, which put pressure on Saudi Arabia’s relationship with the Brotherhood, and led to an “unprecedented tension” between them, within the context of the Saudi foreign policy crisis towards the Arab revolutions and the future of change in the Arab world.
