He described them as “Bedouins” … Saudi princes rise up after “insulting” Lebanese Foreign Minister Charbel and a gift to them | A nation is tweeting out of tune


Saudi princes and tweeters launched a sharp attack on the Lebanese Foreign Minister Charbel Wahba because of his statements during which they were considered insulting to the Saudis.

This came after an argument took place between the Lebanese Foreign Minister and the Saudi analyst Salman Al-Ansari during an interview on the American “Al-Hurra” channel.

Lebanese Foreign Minister Charbel Wahba responded to “Al-Ansari”: “I am from Lebanon … one of the Bedouins insults me ?!”

The minister refused to insult “Al-Ansari,” the President of the Lebanese Republic, and asked about the murderer of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The minister criticized the presenter, Samah, for “insulting” the Saudi guest to the President of the Lebanese Republic, before he withdrew from the studio.

In the meeting, Wahba hinted that some Gulf countries have supported ISIS.

He said: “ISIS came and were brought by states of Prime Time Zone of love, friendship and brotherhood. The states of love brought us the state and planted them for us in the Nineveh Plains, Anbar and Palmyra.”

The Lebanese minister’s statements were considered to increase tension with Saudi Arabia and sabotage the Lebanese-Gulf relations, while Saudi princes and tweeters attacked the minister and defended his description of them as “Bedouins.”

We will review for you some of those responses to the Lebanese Minister Charbel Wahba.

For his part, Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri criticized the minister and the party he represents.

He confirmed in a statement issued by his office late on Monday evening that “Wahba” (affiliated with President Michel Aoun) does not represent most of the Lebanese, but rather a specific axis in the authority accustomed to presenting certificates of good conduct to internal and external bodies, he said.

He also stressed that what the minister said in one of the television interviews, against some Arab and Gulf countries, “does not mean most of the Lebanese who are looking to correct relations with brothers in the Arab Gulf and reject the disgraceful excess of insulting the rules of brotherhood and common interests.”

The Saudi-Lebanese relations are mainly experiencing tension, especially after Saudi Arabia recently banned the entry of Lebanese vegetables and fruits into the Kingdom after controlling the attempt to smuggle a huge amount of drugs coming from Lebanon.
