BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Adel Al-Jubeir, believes that Iran is the first state sponsor of terrorism in the world, stressing that “this is what we have been saying for many, many years.”

Al-Jubeir said on Al-Arabiya TV, on the sidelines of the Mediterranean Forum Summit in the Italian capital, Rome: “Iran is a country that assassinates diplomats, storms embassies, cultivates terrorist cells and carries out sabotage in various countries. The work of terrorist organizations.”

“Iran threatens the entire region and we can no longer afford its aggressiveness. We support the pressure on Iran,” he continued.

Al-Jubeir added that “Iran believes in the principle of exporting the revolution and does not respect the sovereignty of states. We must be tough with Iran and no one is seeking war.”

The Iranian file was strongly present at the Mediterranean Forum Summit in Rome, despite the exclusion of Iran and its Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, from participating for the first time.

According to the Saudi King it was “accidentally”. They don’t do such things. Only Iranians do…

And the Iranian regime even does it massively, just remember the 1988 hanging of 33,000 dissidents : half of them were children under 18y old.

They were much less pro-active than Iran, Turkey, Qatar and Pakistan before MBS took over and decided to stop funding extremists.

Half of 9-11 hijackers were helped by Quds-Force to enter USA. When it comes to AQ, it was Mugniyeh (Hezbo) who personally trained OBL and his close aides into terrorism, it happened in Sudan. In fact, Dubya attacked the wrong country.
Kashogi was a Muslim-Brotherhood member. MB is also a terrorist organisation in Russia+CSTO, Syria, Egypt as in all Gulf monarchies but Qatar… When you’re in a terrorist organisation, it’s not a good idea to enter the embassy of a country where your organisation is banned.

There is competition to be the #1 sponsor of terrorism : Turkey, Qatar and Pakistan are strong competitors. The Muslim-Brotherhood is a 5th column and should be dealt with too.
