Political observers have compared the crimes committed by Saudi Arabia to those of Israel amid Riyadh’s military invasion of Bahrain to help quell the anti-government protests.On March 13, Saudi Arabia dispatched troops to Bahrain to crush Bahraini protesters who have been demanding the downfall of the al- Khalifa dynasty in the small Persian Gulf kingdom.
The move has prompted political observers to look back at the crimes of the Saudi regime throughout history and pose the question, â€œHow different are the Saudi and Israeli regimes?â€
Israel invaded Palestine and changed its name to â€œIsrael,â€ and the Saudi dynasty invaded Hijaz and put its family name on the territory, calling it â€œSaudi Arabia.â€
Israeli regime invaded Lebanon and Gaza under the pretext of establishing security; Saudis launched an onslaught on Bahraini civilians to prevent anti-government protests from spreading to their territory.
Israel violated international rules of engagement and used non-conventional weapons against the Lebanese and Gazans; Saudis used live ammunition and nerve gas in their attacks on defenseless Bahraini protesters.
Israel targeted residential areas, hospitals and schools during its assaults; Saudis hit ambulances and raided hospitals in crisis-hit Bahrain.Back to top button
Israel resorts to kidnapping, bombing and other terrorist operations in other countries to maintain its hegemony; Saudis have set up al-Qaeda to continue their dominance and sent terrorist groups to Iraq to massacre innocent people in the war-ravaged country.
Now the question remains: â€œBetween Israeli and Saudi regimes, which one is more criminal and which one enjoys more US support?â€
