Like Hezbollah, Assad declares war on Saudi Arabia

nasrallah assadSyria’s President Bashar al-Assad Monday called for a battle against Wahhabism, the political and religious ideology embraced by the Saudi government, a key backer of the uprising against his regime.

The comments came amid ongoing tensions between the two countries, which are fiercely opposed to each other.

“President Assad said that extremist and Wahhabi thought distort the real Islam, which is tolerant,” state news agency SANA said.

“He underlined the role of men of religion in fighting against Wahhabi thought, which is foreign to our societies,” the agency said.

Wahhabism is an ultra-conservative Muslim tradition, which is predominant in Saudi Arabia and applied to both religious and political life.

Assad’s remarks during a meeting with religious clerics from Lebanon come a day after Saudi King Abdullah accused the Syrian leader of “destroying his country”.

The monarch, who is hosting French President Francois Hollande, also accused Assad of having attracted Islamic extremists to Syria.

Groups affiliated with and loyal to Al-Qaeda are now among those fighting on the ground against Assad’s government.

Saudi Arabia is a key backer of the rebels fighting against Assad’s regime, and the Damascus government accuses the kingdom of funding “terrorists” seeking to destroy Syria.

Iran focusing on Saudi Arabia

It appears from Assad’d remarks that Iran has recently decided to indirectly declare war on Saudi Arabia thru its allies and proxies.

Assad’s remarks come a day after Saudi Arabia pledged 3 billion US Dollars to arm the Lebanese army, which for the first time today responded to an attack by Syrian warplanes near the town of Arsal.

Recently Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy in Lebanon has been focusing its attacks against Saudi Arabia . The struggle between Iran (through Hezbollah and the Syrian regime) and Saudi Arabia over the future of Lebanon has reportedly cost former Lebanese finance minister Mohammad Chatah his life last Friday when he and at least six others were killed in a massive bombing that rocked downtown Beirut.

Hezbollah according to observers may be settling a score with Saudi Arabia, with which Chatah and others within the March 14 alliance are considered close. Hezbollah, after all, believes that Riyadh has played a key role in the recent attacks against it.

During an interview with OTV on December 4 Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah went radically off script, zeroing in on a new target for his rhetorical darts: “Saudi Arabia”.

Nasrallah rarely mentions Saudi Arabia by name, only referring to the monarchy in vague terms in order to maintain plausible deniability. But that all changed on December 4 when he accused Saudi agents of being behind the suicide-bomb attack on the Iranian embassy in Beirut last month that claimed 25 lives. In doing so he had openly declared a war that has long been fought in the shadows, first in Lebanon where Hezbollah-allied parties are at a political impasse with the Saudi-backed Future Movement of Saad Hariri, and now in Syria, where Hezbollah, with Iranian assistance, is fighting on the side of President Bashar Assad against Saudi-backed rebels.

“This is the first time I have ever seen such a direct attack by Nasrallah against Saudi Arabia,” said Lebanon-based political analyst Talal Atrissi. “This was the formal declaration of a war that has been going on in Syria since Saudi first started supporting the rebels.”

In the same 2/1’2 hour interview Nasrallah returned to the subject of Saudi Arabia multiple times, declaring that it was Saudi Arabia that was prolonging the agonizing civil war in Syria, not the Syrians themselves, or even Hezbollah. “Saudi Arabia is determined to keep on fighting until the last bullet and last drop of blood.” He proclaimed.

    Its amazing how much support and weapons and training the wahhabimsm got from Assad and Iran when most of the American Soldiers were there. Suddenly when the tide turned against him, he is not against them of course.. all the routes he opened for Al Qaada to attack American soldiers and the planning of terror attacks by Iran using Al Qaada network.. I am still baffelled why Al Qaada has not gone around the world by attacking Iranian and Syrian Embassies after all the attacks on Muslim Sunnis. Yet when one crazy Copt released a video mocking Prophect Mohamed suddenly then the world was burning.. I still think they’re in bed together no matter how much Assad is against them in public..

      Al-Qaeda are not sunnis but they pretend to be sunnis. These are called Khawarij. They are secretly pro Iranian and work with Iran. Outwardly they show otherwise. The Syrian situation is exposing this dirty relation. There will be a time when this situation will be clear to all of us. One of the Al-Qaeda leader named Omer Bakri Muhammad send their deligation to France and proposed Khomeini to be their Khalifa! Then again they send another delegation to Iran when Khomeini was there and proposed him to be the Khalifa. Their religious doctrine is very different than that of sunnis. During the time of Jesus (Peace be upon him) similar group emerged who were called the Zealots. The following Youtube video have some great information about the Khawarij

        In 1948, Ibn Saud participated in the Arab-Israeli War. Saudi Arabia’s contribution was generally considered token.

        While the members of the royal family wanted heavenly gardens, splendid cars, and concrete palaces, Ibn Saud wanted a royal railway from the Persian Gulf to Riyadh and then an extension to Jeddah. This was regarded by all of the advisers living in the country as an old man’s folly. Eventually, ARAMCO built the railway, at a cost of $70 million, drawn from the King’s oil royalties. It was completed in 1951 and was used commercially after the king’s death. It enabled Riyadh to grow into a relatively modern city. But when a paved road was built in 1962, the railway lost its traffic

    Strong men from Iraki militias should seek martyrdom on the illegitimate monarchy’s oil fields. Such a despotic leadership has no right to exist and exploit the land for the sole purpose of subjugating its people under the obsolete tenets of the religious Middle Ages.

    Fortunately, its days are numbered. You cannot encourage economic development as the princes of Saud are doing and expect to keep a monocratic monopoly on political power. I will laugh the day I see these princes being beheaded by the same takfiris they were funding just before.

    First of all I would like to point out that al-wahhab is a name of Allah and calling someone wahhabi is just like calling him Allahi, the ignorant are excused.
    Second, I have noticed that people these days tell lies about the history of Muhammad ibn Abdulwahhab or are oblivious to it and just talk market talk about his history. For example, some jaahil qabuuri will say that the sheykh fought against the ottomans and that makes him a khaariji. For all those who perhaps dont know why the sheykh is hated by the qaburis, here is a glance of what he did in uyayna:

    After his return to ‘Uyayna, Ibn Abd al-Wahhab began to attract followers there, including the ruler of the town, Uthman ibn Mu’ammar. With Ibn Mu’ammar’s support, Ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab began to implement some of his ideas for reform. First, he persuaded ibn Mu’ammar to level the grave of Zayd ibn al-Khattab, a companion of the Muslim prophet Muhammad whose grave was revered by locals, citing Islamic teachings that forbid grave worship. Secondly, he ordered that an adulteress be stoned to death, a practice that had become uncommon in the area despite having Islamic textual basis. These actions gained the attention of Sulaiman ibn Muhammad ibn Ghurayr of the tribe of Bani Khalid, the chief of Al-Hasa and Qatif, who held substantial influence in Najd. Ibn Ghurayr threatened Ibn Mu’ammar that he would not allow him to collect a land tax for some properties that he owned in al-Hasa if he did not kill ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab. Ibn Mu’ammar declined to do this, but ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab was forced to leave.
    Our sheykh emerged at a time when there was great fitnah of grave worship in the peninsula and he saved countless souls from that evil practice.Upon his expulsion from ‘Uyayna, Ibn Abd al-Wahhab was invited to settle in neighboring Dir’iyya by its ruler Muhammad ibn Saud in 1740 (1157 AH). Two of Ibn Saud’s brothers had been students of Ibn Abd al-Wahhab in Uyayna, and are said to have played a role in convincing Ibn Saud to take him in. Ibn Saud’s wife is also reported to have been a convert to Ibn Abd al-Wahhab’s cause. Upon arriving in Diriyya, a pact was made between Ibn Saud and Ibn Abd al-Wahhab, by which Ibn Saud pledged to implement Ibn Abd al-Wahhab’s teachings and enforce them on neighboring towns. Beginning in the last years of the 18th century Ibn Saud and his heirs would spend the next 140 years mounting various military campaigns to seize control of Arabia and its outlying regions, finally taking control of the whole of modern day Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1922. This provided the movement with a state. Vast wealth from oil discovered in the following decades, coupled with Saudi control of the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, have since provided a base and funding for Salafi missionary activityAs can be seen from above, the sheykh was welcomed by al saud in 1740, long before abdul aziz al saud would conquer the whole of modern saudia, regaining terrirtory lost by al saud after the al saud were driven from power by the ottomans who came to help the grave worshippers in medina and makkah in 1818 when the sheykh was long gone rahimahullah.
    So, for those who say that the sheykh rebelled against the ottomans, either they dont know history or are just bitter that he put to a stop the grave worshipping and other bid3a that was rampant in the arabian peninsula at his time.
    Oh, and the house of saud of today dont really follow Muhammad ibn Abdulwahhab, except when they feel like it…
    So calling someone a Wahhabi simply because you don’t like them is a very cheap insult with no substance . So if you don’t want to be classified in the same league as Assad and other Iranian lackeys, as well as the enemies of the true Islam , do not use the term Wahabbi.

      Hey BTRU, You missed some more facts.

      Following the capture of Riyadh, many former supporters of the House of Saud rallied to Ibn Saud’s call to arms. He was a charismatic leader and kept his men supplied with arms. Over the next two years, he and his forces recaptured almost half of the Najd from the Rashidis.

      In 1904, Ibn Rashid appealed to the Ottoman Empire for military protection and assistance. The Ottomans responded by sending troops into Arabia. On 15 June 1904, Ibn Saud’s forces suffered a major defeat at the hands of the combined Ottoman and Rashidi forces. His forces regrouped and began to wage guerrilla warfare against the Ottomans. Over the next two years he was able to disrupt their supply routes, forcing them to retreat.

      He completed his conquest of the Najd and the eastern coast of Arabia in 1912. He then founded the Ikhwan, a military-religious brotherhood which was to assist in his later conquests, with the approval of local Salafi ulema. In the same year, he instituted an agrarian policy to settle thenomadic pastoralist bedouins into colonies, and to dismantle their tribal organizations in favor of allegiance to the Ikhwan.

      During World War I, the British government established diplomatic relations with Ibn Saud. The British agent, Captain William Shakespear, was well received by the Bedouin.[13] Similar diplomatic missions were established with any Arabian power who might have been able to unify and stabilize the region. The British entered into a treaty in December 1915 (the “Treaty of Darin”) which made the lands of the House of Saud a British protectorate and attempted to define the boundaries of the developing Saudi state.[14] In exchange, Ibn Saud pledged to again make war against Ibn Rashid, who was an ally of the Ottomans.

      The British Foreign Office had previously begun to support Sharif Hussein bin Ali, Emir of the Hejaz by sending Lawrence of Arabia to him in 1915. The Saudi Ikhwan began to conflict with Emir Feisal also in 1917 just as his sons Abdullah and Faisal entered Damascus. The Treaty of Darin remained in effect until superseded by the Jeddah conference of 1927 and the Dammam conference of 1952 during both of which Ibn Saud extended his boundaries past the Anglo-Ottoman Blue Line. After Darin, he stockpiled the weapons and supplies which the British provided him, including a ‘tribute’ of £5,000 per month.[15] After World War I, he received further support from the British, including a glut of surplus munitions. He launched his campaign against the Al Rashidi in 1920; by 1922 they had been all but destroyed.

      The defeat of the Al Rashidi doubled the size of Saudi territory. This allowed Ibn Saud the leverage to negotiate a new and more favorable treaty with the British. Their treaty, signed at Uqair in 1922, saw Britain recognize many of his territorial gains. In exchange, Ibn Saud agreed to recognize British territories in the area, particularly along the Persian Gulf coast and in Iraq. The former of these were vital to the British, as merchant traffic between British India and United Kingdom depended upon coaling stations on the approach to the Suez Canal.

      In 1925 the forces of Ibn Saud captured the holy city of Mecca from Sharif Hussein bin Ali, ending 700 years of Hashemite rule. On 8 January 1926, the leading figures in Mecca, Madina and Jeddah proclaimed Ibn Saud the King of Hejaz.On 20 May 1927, the British government signed the Treaty of Jeddah, which abolished the Darin protection agreement and recognized the independence of the Hejaz and Najd with Ibn Saud as its ruler.

    Thank you Saudi Arabia, for taking the hard-and right-path to stop the expansionism of Iran. Do not bother listening to the apologists of Shia Persian aggression – Iran’s two dogs, Assad and Nasrallah.

    Once it gets its nuke, Iran will hold a knife to the throat of the Arabian Gulf’s oil producing countries; it will be an existential threat not just to the West, but to the entire world.

    Saudi Arabia knows this; Israel knows this; Lebanon’s subjugated population knows this; Syria sadly knows this. In Bahrain today (31 December 2013) the police uncovered a massive cache of explosives and weapons, offloaded from an Iraqi ship in the Arabian Gulf, and they caught 13 terrorists, trained in Iran, in a speedboat headed away from Bahrain towards Iran. This occurred after 2 bombings in less than two weeks over the Holiday Season critically injured 4 policemen.

    You want the truth? Amazon Kindle’s new thriller The Bahrain Protocol spells out the frightening reality of the U.S.’ withdrawal from the Middle East; and the creation of a new partnership to take on-and take out-the New Islamic Persian Empire. Those countries that are the bulwark between freedom and Shia hegemony are Saudi Arabia-and Israel.

          • Hind Abyad

            Not once you mention Israel, Al Qaeda never attacks Israel, because
            NATO backed Al Qaeda & affiliates (The West), are finance and trained
            in US military bases in Saudi Arabia.
            Simplifying?

            The West is not in Iraq-now because the PLAN of self-destructive-sectarian
            War don’t need help it works by itself-now.

            The West is in Lebanon, Holland French Embassy is a nest for Israeli
            and West spys, reunited with Saudi intelligence a deadly combination.

            Iran Embassy was bombed by a Saudi. Iran never bombed anyone,
            i said, i’m not interrested in Iran, i’m simply noting facts, CIA Mossad
            works fulltime not “occasionaly”.

            Iran is trying to defend Shias as Sunni extremists are shoping their heads
            in Syria (as in Egypt).

            Iran didn’t invade a country for 200 years, Israel obsession for the West
            to invade Iran is puting the Planet in danger of a WW3.

            West-Saudi calling the shots in Lebanon, in Syria, in Irak.
            PS. Saudi Intelligence controles Chechean also calling the shots in bomb
            attacks in Russia, and i wish you well.

          • Icansee4miles

            You are defending Iran a little to vigorously to not be Shia; you are showing your colors. Remember the U.S. Marine bombing in Lebanon? Hezbollah=Iran. Rafiq Hariri the Prime Minister? Hezbollah=Iran. The latest bombing taking out the former Lebanese Minister? Hezbollah=Iran. And Iran not invading another country for 200 years? Please-their people are In Syria and Hezbollah is an Irani Militia; even Lebanese Shia have said this on the website!! But they are scared to say the truth; because Hezbollah is a Mafia that will kill you if you speak.

            And by the way – Christians don’t defend murderers

          • Hind Abyad

            Hezbollah liberated Christian town of Kousseir in Homs besieged
            by Sharia Jihadis since 2011. More than 1.600 people went back
            to their homes, a week later Mass was celebrated for the first since 2001
            while Saudi Arabia sends beheaders to massacre Christians in Syria.

            Is your sister Shia?
            Don’t bother me anymore!

          • Icansee4miles

            A Shia-loving Christian is not a Christian; it (not he or she) is a Judas!

          • cook

            She’s a fake little christian. She’s the diet coke of a christian. No Christian speaks of Israel like this and defends the party of Satan all the time

            Well Cookie, you have to imagine from the look on the guy’s face and his silly grin, he should probably be in an asylum. They are among the people of the world making the rest of us a little crazy … too.

          • cook

            The guy in the picture? lol, I hate orthodox Jews. Id deport them if I was in charge

          • Icansee4miles

            Agreed; I do give Hezbollah credit for hiring first class propaganda agents; their lies have no equal in the world.

          • cook

            Are you a frequent commenter on CNN? : P

          • Icansee4miles

            You hurt my feelings! LOL!!

          • Peaceforleb

            Hang on Cookie, wasn’t the Jews who apparently crucified Jesus (PBUH). On the contrary, I think most Christians despise Jews.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            There’s no ‘apparently’ and I know you mean well but PBUH is not required. Would you install an a.c in Siberia? Would it be necessary to resuscitate an already living person? You dont cool down by having a hot shower do you! Anyway I have to make the comment in response to yours but no disrespect intended.

          • Peaceforleb

            No problem brother. :-))). But just one question, whats wrong with saying Peace be upon someone. Bro, I don’t wont to turn this into a religious debate, however I really think PBUH or her can be said to anybody. Don’t you think.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            I have thought about it many times and my conclusion isn’t the absolute truth it’s just my opinion, but when you are referring to a person who as we understand is in heaven then that person is in the pinnacle of peace he or she is in the presence of God, what more could you ask for then to be in the presence of God and what could there dare to be other than peace and Gods love. Peace be upon him or her would be more suitably addressed and said of those who have departed and our sincerest hopes are that they may be waiting to enter heaven at best, I dont think you believe any prophet hasn’t made it to heaven and I know that Christ is the Prince of peace. So I think it is an error to make the PBUH comment to some souls.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            you can say it to me I need it.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Thank you same to you.

          • Peaceforleb

            Fair enough, I can respect that. And be peace be upon not just you but all of mankind. -:)

          • cook

            Nope, Jewish method of execution was stoning. It was the Romans who crucified people.
            Jesus, his family and friends we’re all Jewish. Not so logical to “hate Jewish people” if you loved Jesus.

  • Icansee4miles

    Thank you Saudi Arabia, for taking the hard-and right-path to stop the expansionism of Iran. Do not bother listening to the apologists of Shia Persian aggression – Iran’s two dogs, Assad and Nasrallah.

    Once it gets its nuke, Iran will hold a knife to the throat of the Arabian Gulf’s oil producing countries; it will be an existential threat not just to the West, but to the entire world.

    Saudi Arabia knows this; Israel knows this; Lebanon’s subjugated population knows this; Syria sadly knows this. In Bahrain today (31 December 2013) the police uncovered a massive cache of explosives and weapons, offloaded from an Iraqi ship in the Arabian Gulf, and they caught 13 terrorists, trained in Iran, in a speedboat headed away from Bahrain towards Iran. This occurred after 2 bombings in less than two weeks over the Holiday Season critically injured 4 policemen.

    You want the truth? Amazon Kindle’s new thriller The Bahrain Protocol spells out the frightening reality of the U.S.’ withdrawal from the Middle East; and the creation of a new partnership to take on-and take out-the New Islamic Persian Empire. Those countries that are the bulwark between freedom and Shia hegemony are Saudi Arabia-and Israel.

          A little price tag for the traking & spying i have suffered here, called bint Sharmouta by a Hezzies Headless, because i happen to have different opinions, they insulte track where i live publish my regional code number, Province & City in public, hack my Discuss serial number they published here, by an angry pro-Israel ligth bulb, Cooked&half..(?)

          Now i’m Hezbollah? I am Lebanese Christian, that’s how women are treated by the other side. Yes thats my picture..Iran is not my business, i’m speaking about trashing the Midlle East because of alliances. I just don’t think it’s worthed the whole Middle East been destroyed.

          Israel want’s to destroy Iran-Shia. Hesbollah-Shia. Syria-Allawites.
          Saudi whant’s to destroy Iran-Shia, Hezbollah-Shia. Syria-Allawites.

            Romans 1:21-22 DRA

            Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God, or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened. For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

          • 5thDrawer

            So Maborlz … my first foolish question will be:
            ‘After a long, and I assume eventually boring, time with dinosaurs, what the hell was this experiment with humans supposed to be about? Because it’s turning out to be a larger failure than the first one.’
            After all, if God & Devil wanted ‘glorification’, they (He?) could have reduced the brain just a bit to have robotic fulfilment for that.
            As the ‘Mars Society’ begins it’s quest, it would be better if ‘the spirit’ exported back to the stars was less antagonistic. Especially if there are other little experiments going on somewhere else in the universe.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Your wrong 5th, that’s not a very foolish question. The concept of time for you and I may be very similar based on our understanding of time, so the dinosaurs were around for a long and boring time from your perspective yes maybe your right and are we the next failed experiment? Ummmmm it looks as though you could be correct again, especially when the species originates from the Middle East. However, the concept of time in relation to the creator is different, the knowledge of the Creator is infinite, and what we see as boring and long might be a fraction of a second or a blink of the eye according to the Creator, and is the creation of humans a failure? The answer is NO! The failure is when the created tries to pride himself with his own wisdom which is absolutely finite in other words limited to a maximum comprehension of how it really is, and the wisest amongst us is far from being as infinitely enlightened as the Creator. So when your done patting yourself on the back, take a moment and thank God for who you are.

          • 5thDrawer

            And, Mab, that’s the private part of the conversation between me and a creator.
            So beyond the question, I’ll thank Him for ‘my time’ in that ‘creation’, and for seeing as much of it as I have, and expect only upon death to become once again part of ‘The Universal’ – on Earth; water and a few minerals returned to the soil, with only the bones left as a record of a passing – shall we call it – spirit.
            And in that inevitably minuscule span of time, I can say I attempted NOT to ever Lord it over any other human spirit moving through the same years … although I may also have pointed out what I see as some errors in their ways at times.
            (Which didn’t physically harm them unless they drew abrupt attention needed for self-preservation.)
            I always found it interesting, those bones. In places that preserve them well, they can remain part of a landscape – or are even the visual evidence of an epoch of the time, such as the burial chambers at Tyre – the ones of the poor piled randomly still and open to view there – unlike those of some covered by nature.
            The evidence when we dig, if you will, of a progression in nature.
            This has allowed us to note well the changes during ‘the experiment’. To throw that accumulation of ‘evidence knowledge’ away is, I believe, only detrimental to the greater experiment, and certainly not ‘godly’ in any sense of the word.

            Open a mind, and thank God for the ability. The rest is Physics.
