Islam Times Exclusive:
Saudia Arabia's King Abdullah passed away
Islam Times: Saudi Arabia's 86-year-old King Abdullah was discharged from a New York City hospital in good health after going through two back operations in December 2010. The king delegated the management of the affairs of the world’s largest oil supplier to his half-brother, Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz, during his absence.
King Abdullah talked with Obama about the situation in Egypt over the phone yesterday. Obama and the King got into a heated debate about their opinions of what Hosni Mubarak should do. After the phone call sources stated that King Abdullah was furious and then suffered a sudden heart attack.
Doctors ran to his rescue but were unable to save him. He was pronounced dead, but his death was not reported due to the sensative conditions that exist in the region. The Saudi Arabian government will reject this claim; but the ball is in their court to prove that he is alive.

Might not be sure on this, as i can no longer find any article mentioning it, but it seems that well over a year ago there was at least speculation that he was dead. I am not sure if he has been dead the entire time or if there was a rumor based on him being unable to be found at the time, but it would be interesting to find where this had been mentioned back when it was.
supposedly he suffered a heart/heat (?) attack after speaking with Obama on the phone.. Islam Times statement was published on 2/10/11.. on 2/11/11 author Brigitte Gabrielle made a similar statement during an interview..

maybe some of this explains the confusion and concern..
one of the comments to the video, "The mahdi in islam sets the stage for Jesus's return. The Mahdi is supposed to come from Medina Saudi Arabia, and his army will be the army with the black flags from Khorasan (modern day Afghanistan). Supposedly he won't even know he's the Mahdi.."
there are these 'hadiths' which supposedly are non-Qua-ran statements by Muhammad
"...The reason why Hazrat Mahdi (as) is known as Hazrat Mahdi (as) is this; he will be directed toward a secret matter, will extract the Torah and other Divine books from a cave in Antioch and will rule among Jews with the Torah and among Christians with the Gospel.
(Al-Mahdiy al-Mawud, Vol. 1, pp. 254-255)
"The reason why he is called Hazrat Mahdi (as) is that he will head to one of the mountains in Sham. From there he will produce the (true) books of the Torah and raise evidence against the Jews."
(Suyuti, al-Hawi al-Fatawa, II. 81)
Under the just rule of the Imam az-Zaman [Hazrat Mahdi (as)], all the divine books will be presented in their original forms and with no corruptions. Imam Mahdi (as) will rule the people of the Torah with the Torah, the people of the Injil with the Injil, the people of the Psalms with the Psalms and the people of the Qur’an with the Qur’an.
(Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 351)
