Arab League disappoints Saudi on Iran’s case


Cairo: Saudi Arabia started a campaign against Iran’s to overwhelm so-called ally Hezbollah by calling 22 members of Arab League so that they would declare a war with Iran. According to Saudi monarch, Iran supports terrorist organizations in Syria and Yemen.

All member accepted the emergency meeting except Lebanese, Iraqi, Iranian Foreign Ministers who was called on Sunday in Cairo by Arab Foreign Minister under the command of Saudi government to persuade most members of the Arab League to rebel against American arch enemy, Iran.

Reports proclaimed that most of the members of Arab League didn’t agree on Saudi’s statement against Iran, Iran became the second strong Islamic Nuclear state; the campaign against Iran had started earlier that year after Donald Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia.

The representatives of all member states expressed reservations during the meeting over the final communique till November 22, 2017.

“We want to hold everyone responsible,” Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa said, “We want to hold countries where Hezbollah is a partner in government responsible, specifically Lebanon.”

Al-Khalifa claimed, “Lebanon is subject to full control by this terrorist group.”

Commenting on the Bahraini foreign minister’s statement, American University of Beirut professor Rami Khouri told, “Hezbollah is certainly the single most powerful political group in Lebanon, where governance requires complex consensus building in which Hezbollah is clearly preeminent. But it is not in total control.”

“We cannot flare up the fire between two countries. The purpose is to resolve the issue,” he added, “We cannot support Saudi’s personal enmity with Iran, It’s from day one when Khaminei 1979 (Iranian revolution) overtook the throne of Iran.”

He accused Saudis by saying that Saudi Arabia subsequently expressed its anger at Hezbollah, which maintains close ties with Iran.

Saudi Minister for Gulf Affairs Thamar Sabah has warned Lebanese, “They must choose either peace, or to live within the political fold of Hezbollah.”

UAE Foreign Minister said, “We don’t want to be the part of any war with Iran or Hezbollah, even American Air Chief officer denied attacking Iran then why Saudi wants us to fight.”

Furthermore, the situation became ambiguous by Arab League during the meeting and it would not have any tangible decision, no member agreed to attack Iran.
