The Saudi activist, Omar bin Abdulaziz, said that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman does not pose a threat only to Saudi Arabia but to the entire region, warning of a “new Saddam Hussein,” as he described it.
“If he continues to do what he is doing, we will have a new Saddam Hussein in the region,” said Saudi activist Omar bin Abdulaziz, during a joint briefing session in the US House of Representatives.
He continued, “We have alternatives in the Al Saud family, although I do not like them. The release of a number of them will put pressure on Mohammed bin Salman, and we want to speak freely in Saudi Arabia.”
He continued: “We are not against the reforms of Mohammed bin Salman and Jamal Khashoggi was supportive of them, but we can reform without killing anyone and arresting thousands.”
Sanctions on bin Salman
He continued: “We have to do a lot of work and sanctions must be imposed on Mohammed bin Salman personally, and Mohammed bin Salman does not seem to learn from the lessons of the past.”
He went on to say: “I am glad that the administration of US President Joe Biden has lifted the secrecy of the Khashoggi report, but it does not appear that Mohammed bin Salman has received the message clearly.”
The Saudi activist pointed out that the message of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in his country’s consulate in Istanbul more than two years ago. It means we will pursue you and you will not be safe.
Badin’s sanctions against Saudi Arabia
Earlier, the “Asia Times” website said that US President Joe Biden’s move to withdraw the Patriot missiles from Saudi Arabia by the US Department of Defense. And ending the stationing of aircraft carriers from the region indicates that President Biden sees Iran as the real power in the Middle East.
The site pointed out that the US move came in conjunction with Tehran signing a long-term strategic and economic agreement with China.
The site pointed out that the agreement signed between Iran and China is related to the oil and gas trade, and directly undermines US sanctions against Tehran.
The website added that Biden and his administration did not question the agreement signed between China and Iran.
But she made one comment that China and America have one factor in common, and that is the opposition to Iran’s possession of nuclear weapons.
Iran is an upcoming partner
The site stated that political experts are trying to think about the reasons for Biden’s departure from Saudi Arabia, and to weaken a long-term strategic relationship with it.
The site said that these actions indicate the desire of the American administration and its endeavors to convince Iran that it is a good partner for the future, considering that Iran. “From a strategic perspective, it is the only real force in the Gulf.”
According to these data, the options before the Biden administration are either entering a war with Iran, or concluding deals with it.
The newspaper continued, saying that “the other countries in the Gulf (Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Oman and Qatar) are considered oil suppliers, but they are militarily weak countries.”
In contrast, Iran is not only a military strongman but is on the verge of taking over Iraq through its proxies. It also effectively controls Lebanon through Hezbollah, and is a major player in Syria. ”
And the site considered that the US administration is unable to change these facts, so it began to do something different in alliance with Iran.
The site stated that there is another explanation, which believes that US President Joe Biden “views Saudi Arabia as not being a progressive country. And she can’t. Providing alternative leadership for the region, as well as human rights violations in the Kingdom, including the assassination of journalist “Jamal Khashoggi”.
The site added that the surprising thing is that the Biden administration did not consult Israel about these decisive military moves from the region. Note that Iran has always affirmed its desire to remove Israel from the map.
Iran has also armed Hezbollah and Shiite militias in Iraq with long-range precision missiles that could target Israel.
Despite this, the new US administration did not do anything. Other than encouraging some countries in the Middle East to stay away. On the Abraham agreements that were signed between the UAE and Bahrain, which resulted in the normalization of the relationship with Israel.
