Iraq Cabinet: Saudi 'Responsible' for Militant Financing

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Saudi Arabia should be held responsible for militant financing and crimes committed by insurgent groups in Iraq, the Baghdad government charged on Tuesday.

Comments from Riyadh indicates it is "siding with terrorism", the cabinet said in a statement issued by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's office.

"We strongly condemn this stance," the statement read.

"We hold it (Saudi Arabia) responsible for what these groups are receiving in terms of financial and moral support."

It continued: "The Saudi government should be held responsible for the dangerous crimes committed by these terrorist groups."

The statement came just days after Saudi Arabia and Qatar blamed "sectarian" policies by Iraq's Shiite-led government against the Sunni Arab minority for the unrest that has swept the country.

The unrest "could not have taken place if it was not for the sectarian and exclusionary policies implemented in Iraq over the past years that threatened its stability and sovereignty," the Saudi government said in a statement.

In March, Maliki accused both Saudi Arabia and Qatar of supporting terrorism in Iraq.

is there anything strange about a possible Saudi involvement? why is it OK to have Iranians and hizbushaitan involved but not others?
terrorism is terrorism, and both sides can play the same game.

while iran is discussing the region with the US, the Iranians advised they want Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, as well as Pakistan and Afghanistan.

what is going on is a reminder to iran they have nothing, not even Iraq which has been invaded by a terrorist group in just a few days, nearly breaking the line between iran and Syria.

Malaki & Co. deflecting. Trying to shift the blame for their secterian policies.

When they decided to sideline the Sunni community and remove the Sunni leaders who successfully fought Al Qaeda between 2006-2008; what did they expect? The US was only successful in defeating these animals when they enlisted local support.

Thumb Machia 17 June 2014, 17:03

In general I agree with your analysis save for the following. I don't think you need a stronger leader to stand against those crazies. What you need is a unified front.
It worked to an extent in Lebanon where the cabinet is a uniformed front.
In Syria there is no united front. The Assad regime is a dictatorship that cannot unify the country.
As for Iraq Maliki has decided to rule alone and fill his pockets. Not only did he alienate the Sunnis and the Kurds but he even pushed away Al Sadr and Al Hakim.
What those country need is a social contract between the main components of the country.
The way things are heading in Lebanon. But the moment one party wants to dominate the other, extremism will come back running.

'So Saudi funds Sunni terrorists, Iran funds Shia terrorists'........well, one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter, which is why I never use this word Terrorist except on Colonial occupiers (because they always use it). There is a big difference between ISIL who are not supported by most Sunnis, and HA and the Iraqi government who are supported by most Shiites.

"The unrest "could not have taken place if it was not for the sectarian and exclusionary policies implemented in Iraq over the past years that threatened its stability and sovereignty," the Saudi government said in a statement."...................Even though I do not like sectarian Maliki who was elected by the Iraqi people, there is no justification for the KSA to support the ISIL in Iraq! If the KSA is concerned about the sunni Arab minority in Iraq who represent 15-20% of Iraq's population, how come they are not arming the Palestinian Sunnis in Occupied Palestine who are the majority when you include those living in forced exile? I really hope these Sunni sectarian extremists burn the Kings one day who are financing them.

Also, I love when Obama and other zionist pandering western leaders tell Maliki to include Sunni Arabs (who make up 15 to 20% of the Iraqi population) in sharing power. Now forget Israeli occupation of the west bank and Gaza...In "Israel" proper, Christian and Muslim Palestinians make up over 20% and they are not represented in the Zionist government except for a few token paid collaborators. Why there are no criticism of the Zionist racist policies and discrimination toward the Arab minority by the Friends of Israel and their Arab Kings collaborators???How come there is no calls for jews to share power with the Arabs in "Israel" proper.

Missing bigjohn 17 June 2014, 19:05

More than half of the Palestinians boycott Israeli elections. There are Sunnis in Iraq's parliament and All sunnis are allowe to vote. That IS NOT what I am talking about! The Arab community in "Israel" do not have a say in the government. The pro zionist enemies want the Sunni Arab minority to play a big role in what goes on in Iraq. READ before you answer!When i said collaborators, I was not reffering to arab parties in Israel. i was talking about the one Likud Arab cabinet member of the israeli government.

I believe that the US has listed ISIL as a "terrorist" organization. Will the US government put its puppets the KSA and qatar as a state sponsor of terrorism? Off course not. The ISIL are killing Arabs not Israelis. If they attack Israelis or Americans than the US will order Qatar and the KSA to stop supportingn them.

All,

On this forum, most of us are obviously educated and can express ourselves in a clear way.None of us is happy with what is happening in the Middle East today. I am sure we all love our country Lebanon in our ways. And we want the best for Syria and Iraq. We also want a just solution in Palestine.
We are all disgusted with ISIL's extremism, massacres and takfirism. We want justice in Palestine and we think that US policies in the Middle East were, to say the least, not fair.
We are also great believers in freedom of expression, cultural and social freedoms and democracy.
Where we differ is in how to tackle the immense problems we are facing. If this is the case then what I suggest on this particular story's comments is to try to find together a workable plan that could get us to the sort of Lebanon that we all aspire to live in.
Happy to read your point of view.

Thumb Machia 17 June 2014, 20:30

It would be great if we can be positive, put our emotions aside and prove to ourselves that we are not only sarcastic and insulting but also constructive citizens. I know that our avatars permit us to "n'fesh khelekna" but for once only this once, let's write something that will leave us with something to think about for the night.

Thumb Machia 17 June 2014, 21:52

But at times like now, I stop the blame game, and I wonder if Lebanon can still regain this political, economic and social stability. And this is why I am asking the anonymous contributor to this forum for their views. I want to believe that there is still hope.

Thumb Machia 17 June 2014, 20:56

Thank you anonymetexasusa for this. But let me try and go beyond the quandary we are in today.
I want to be an advocate of those on the forum that support Hezbollah, Iran and Assad.

I would say that they are literate and have a good command of English. They are disgusted by ISIL not because ISIL are Sunnis but because ISIL is committing massacres and are behaving in inhumane ways and also their takfiri ideology condemns other human beings to death just because they are not supporters of their ideology.
I would say that they respect, embrace and enjoy life, (Wolves mention of Freddy Mercury up there, the avatar of lebpatriot2323, etc.).
They do not condemn Western culture, political and economic systems but condemn Western policies towards the Middle East.

Thumb Machia 17 June 2014, 20:58

They are not Hezbollah members but admire Hezbollah's actions and policies. They are sure that Hezbollah and Syria did not murder Rafic Hariri but that it was a Zionist plot to destabilize the resistance against Israel.

Thumb Machia 17 June 2014, 21:01

Thank you for this contribution but I am more optimistic about people in general and about Lebanese and Iraqis in particular.
All Iraqis I have met are truly patriotic and non-sectarian. They all love their country and hate to identify themselves by their sect, unlike us Lebanese.
They have a lot of pride in their history, their land and their professions, like the Lebanese.
Generalization is dangerous but that is the first thing that comes to my mind.

Thumb Machia 17 June 2014, 21:49

One more thing and to be totally frank with everyone on this forum, in 2000 when our land was liberated, I was proud and I thought Hezbollah were heros.
Moreover, when the Syrian army occupied Lebanon, with the world's consent, Lebanon enjoyed a few years of stability and economic growth. Yes I did not enjoy the occupation but I greatly enjoyed the stability, rediscovered my country and went about my work.
Then after 2006, hope to build a new country evaporated and everything imploded.

Funny statement this, because Muqtadā al-Ṣadr, Sayed Ammar Al Hakim and Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani were all blaming Maliki's dictatorship for the deteriorating security situation in Iraq shortly before ISIL seized Mosel, I guess they also are to blame. It's a happy coincidence for Maliki that this happened when everyone especially the Shiite leaders were looking to replace him as PM after he failed to secure a clear majority in the election.
