Press Shia Agency – Shaykh Ahmad al-Qattan has stated that Saudi Arabia has executed a terrorist attack in Makkah to keep the people’s minds away from the disputes between the princes.
Press Shia – Referring to the latest developments in the region and in Saudi Arabia, Shaykh Ahmad al-Qattan, the head of Lebanon’s Qawluna wal-Amal [We Say and Act] Society, said: “Undoubtedly, the events that are occuring in Saudi Arabia are undoubtedly the largest reason behind the mistaken policies that Saudi Arabia has taken by its raw, young and non-diplomatic politicians. These developments clearly show that Saudi Arabia is a yes-man to the imperialist powers, especially the United States. Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia has pledged and sworn allegiance to the Israeli regime against Muslims.”
The Lebanese Sunni cleric added that the domestic developments in Saudi Arabia began with the goal of aligning this country with the policies of the imperialist powers, the Zionist regime and the US though new policies with the aim of securing the interests of these countries in the Middle East.
“The domination of imperialist powers over Saudi Arabia is a game which aims at normalizing relations with the Zionist regime in order to ensure the security of Israel and the domination of this regime over Muslims,” he said.
In another part of his speech, Shaykh al-Qattan described the incident of the June 23rd terrorist attack in Makkah and its connection with the ousting of Muhammad ibn Nayef from his posts and his replacement by Muhammad ibn Salman as the new Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia and said, “The Saudi authorities’ blatant and deceptive decisions and actions have led to very unsatisfactory security outcomes, especially given the current situation in the country. Saudi Arabia is a country which exports terrorism to the whole world. The Wahhabi religion is a model, a leader and a genuine principle of Takfiri terrorist groups.”
He added, “Thus, it’s not surprising to witness a terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia, since the pretext for accepting the Takfiri ideology and terrorist operations in Saudi Arabia is completely prepared and ready.”
“We strongly condemn this terrorist attack in Makkah and condemn any terrorist incident that occurs anywhere,” the head of Lebanon’s Qawluna wal-Amal Society said, adding, “Makkah is very valuable to Muslims and we don’t accept the occurrence of such incidents in Makkah but it isn’t strange that the Saudi puppeteers are behind the scenes of this blast. Saudi Arabia may be sending an important message to the countries of the world, and especially its allies, through this incident. It’s very likely that the internal disagreements and tensions in the Saudi royal family have led to this incident to keep people away from these tensions and important government issues.”
Shaykh al-Qattan explained the essence of the accusations against Iran and the indictment of the countries supporting the Islamic Resistance in Makkah’s terrorist incident and stated: “This claim, while foolish, is absurd and meaningless and until now, the Saudi authorities have failed to prove that Iran or the countries supporting the resistance have been linked to this incident.”
The Sunni cleric added that Iran, Hezbollah and the Resistance Axis are at the forefront of fighting the Takfiri/Daesh enemy, saying, “Undoubtedly, the repeat of these incidents would be in the interests of the imperialist powers and Israeli, although it can be said that such crimes were committed by Takfiri groups who had ended their obedience to the Al Saud.”
Shaykh al-Qattan said that Muhammad ibn Salman’s appointment as the Crown Prince and the association of this with his support of terrorists in the region and the expansion of Shi’ah and Sunni sectarianism and ethnic conflict and noted, “Of course, regional incidents such as the victory of the fighters of the Resistance Axis in Syria and Iraq or the severing of relations between several Arab countries with Qatar or the increase of the oppressive and brutal [Saudi-led] war on the oppressed people of Yemen will certainly not benefit the supporters of terrorism.”
In conclusion, he said, “The Arab countries and their allies will not be the main victors of this battle, but rather the Resistance Axis will be the ultimate and the true victor in all these battles. Any individual or group seeking to attack the Resistance Axis will take refuge in Saudi Arabia because the Saudis are the ultimate defenders of the war on the Resistance Axis and any action and victory achieved will worry this country, but the Islamic Republic of Iran and other Islamic countries must increasingly advocate for the oppressed of the world.”
