Former Lebanese and Future Movement chief Saad Hariri described the Iranian political and media war against Saudi Arabia as “an episode in a dangerous series that only aims at exacerbating discord and threatening stability in the region.”
“After the irresponsible words of the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on the eve of Eid al-Adha, his foreign minister came out with a text full of hatred against Saudi Arabia,” said Hariri on Twitter.
“Zarif used an American media platform to incite the American administration and the American people against Saudi Arabia. The platforms of the “great Satan” are now considered suitable by the Iranian leadership to express satanic views,” he added.
“Iran is leading the widest operation to destroy the Arab societies starting from Lebanon to Syria, Iraq, Yemen and every country infiltrated by the Revolutionary Guards.” He stressed
“Iran is a direct partner in breeding terrorism and spreading it in the Islamic world, as can be seen in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Syria. Those responsible for displacing the Syrian people, dividing Iraq, impairing Yemen’s unity and helping those accused of killing Rafik Hariri to escape, have no rights to point the finger at Saudi Arabia and its history of protecting moderation,” remarked Hariri.
In a related development Mecca province governor Prince Khaled al-Faisal was quoted as telling journalists on Thursday that his message to the Iranian leadership was “I pray to God Almighty to guide them and to deter them from their transgression and their wrong attitudes toward their fellow Muslim among the Arabs in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and around the world”.
The Mecca warned Iran :
“But if they are preparing an army to invade us, we are not easily taken by someone who would make war on us.”
“When we desire, and with the help of God Almighty, we will deter every aggressor and will never relent in protecting this holy land and our dear country. No one can defile any part from our country if any one of us remains on the face of the earth.” he added
