Saudis: Syria Can Only Be Considered an ‘Occupied Land’

What a friend we have in Assad...
The Saudis occupied the Arab Peninsula from King Abdullah's great grandfather.

The Saudis occupied the Arab Peninsula from King Abdullah's great grandfather.

Syria can only be considered as an “occupied land,” Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said on Tuesday during a press meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, according to Al Arabiya.

This must be a little bit heart warming to us, occupiers of our own country, just south of Syria…

You know that, if we’re already discussing occupation, the legitimate rulers of the Arab peninsula are the Hashemites, currently the rulers of Trans Jordan. That portion of Eretz Israel was given to them because, back in WW1, the Hashemites had left Mecca and Mediana to help the Brits drive out the Turks from the Syrian desert. While they were away, a tribe of highway robbers, nasty types who followed a misanthropic Muslim tradition known as Wahabi, led by a Bedouin chief named Ibn Saud, occupied the peninsula.

See, if the Hashemite  King Abdullah would go back to Mecca, which is his birthright, and the Palestinians get their state in today’s Jordan, and the Saudis go back into the dunes where they belong… But I’m digressing.

Faisal described the intervention of Iran and Hezbollah in Syria as dangerous, saying the “opposition forces” must be offered military help to defend themselves.

“The most dangerous development is the foreign participation, represented by Hezbollah and other militias supported by the forces of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard,” said Faisal, according to Reuters.

Faisal criticized Syria’s allies, saying there was “no logic” behind Russia providing arms to the Syrian regime.

Other than Russia’s loyalty to an ally of 40 years, and the need to collect the cash for previous arms shipments.

“The kingdom calls for issuing an unequivocal international resolution to halt the provision of arms to the Syrian regime and states the illegitimacy of the regime,” Faisal said, as quoted by Reuters.

Sec. Kerry headed on Tuesday to Saudi Arabia in hopes of coordinating support for Syria’s opposition fighters amid fears that a prolonged civil war will embolden extremists.

What a diplomatic juggler Mr. Kerry must be — getting talks going between rebel and government forces in Syria, reviving the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks — what an ambitious man he is. With nothing to show for it, of course, but we didn’t expect more than that, did we?

In addition to meeting the Saudi foreign minister, Kerry will also engage in talks with Saudi Arabian intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan, who directs the country’s efforts to bring down Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

They’re training rebels in Turkey and in Jordan, in the use of modern American-made equipment. Of course, the training and the equipment will eventually be used to kill Americans, possibly at home, in the U.S.

Discussions include the Obama administration’s plans to provide military support to General Salim Idriss of the Supreme Military Council, the Syrian main civilian opposition group’s military arm.

To his record, President Barack Obama is being cautious about any deeper U.S. involvement in the sectarian conflict, with the only solid reasoning so far being that Assad killed as many as 100 of his people using used chemical weapons.

What about the tens of thousands he murdered with conventional weapons? Why is the world so enraged by chemical murder, as opposed to the old fashioned cutting open of the enemy’s chest cavity and eating his heart?

Saudi Arabia has increased its involvement in the Syrian crisis in recent months, providing anti-aircraft missiles to the rebels, among other weapons, according to Reuters.

Last week, Kerry and his European and Arab counterparts met in Doha, agreeing to intensify support for the Syrian rebels. Yeah… If you ask me, the secret Muslim in this Administration is not Obama, but Kerry. He’s really into bringing up bigger, better Mujahideen.

Italy and Germany strongly are opposing gifting the rebels with modern arms.

See? Some folks learn from their past mistakes.

One Response to “Saudis: Syria Can Only Be Considered an ‘Occupied Land’”

  1. Most people don’t know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today. Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at Isaiah 17. I’m not saying it is, but it looks like it very well could be. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.
