In the following link, you will find an eye-witness account of a gathering of Scholars that took place at the house of Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee on 7/12/1431H:
From those who were present in this gathering - in addition to Shaykh Rabee' - were: Shaykh Falaah Ibn Ismaa'eel, Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee. Shaykh Falaah spoke and Shaykh Rabee' listened and Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee was listening at his right side. Then Shaykh Rabee' added his remarks to the speech of Shaykh Falaah. Then, Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee spoke and then Shaykh Rabee' added his remarks to Shaykh Muhammad's talk. And this was how they spoke words to strengthen the seeker of knowledge is adherence to the Sunnah, especially in during the gloomy fitan (trials, tribulations) that no one perceives, except for those who have purified themselves from following desires and doubts!
And many others were present at this gathering as well, such as a group of Salafee students from Algeria, Shaykh Ahmad az-Zahraanee, Shaykh 'Abdul-Waahid al-Madkhalee and others.
A partial recording of what took place at this gathering is found here:

He also mentions that he witnessed their efforts to turn the youth away from the pure and clear Salafee manhaj in the European countries - Britain, Sweden, Germany, Holland, Belgium and elsewhere. And then listen to the remarks of the noble Shaykh, al-'Allaamah Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee - hafidhahullaah - after which, he asks Allaah to bring about benefit through this discussion.
