When plane of Saad Hariri landed in Riyadh, DemRegierungschef of Lebanon was immediately aware that something was wrong. Keinoffizieller representative of kingdom had appeared at airport. Next morning, irritated guest was immediately quoted to Crown Prince Mohammed BinSalman. Hours later, visibly stressed Lebanese Milliardärim Saudi television resigned. The text was riddled with ihnuntypischen blows against Iran and Hezbollah – with which he has been sitting at cabinet table since EinemJahr.
It is now clear: humiliating demission DerHeimat was enforced by Saudi Arabia. After American and British Lesartwird Hariri prevented from returning to Lebanon. It may be under hausarrest. Because Saudi Arabia wants to Haririsälteren bror Bahaa as head of government impose to small Mediterranean Sea. He has little PolitischeErfahrung, all more aversions against Hezbollah.
For a week, Washington was silent about MerkwürdigenTreiben. Then Ministry of Foreign Affairs and White House, toger, DieSouveränität of Lebanon must be respected. They titled Saad Hariri Demonstrativals Prime minister and praised him as a highly respected partner of States. This was a harsh replica for friendly Saudi Arabia, find at same time addressed to Iran.
For future of region, youngest Eskalationnichts is good. While "Islamic State" (IS) is almost militarily defeated, Zwargeht Syrian civil war under Russian-Iranian sign of his Endeentgegen – but instead of desired pacification of Middle East, all parties are preparing for new conflicts.
First of all, Kurds tried to into ir participation in IS campaign against Mosul by referendum in a factual independence from Iraq. There should also be controversial areas such as rich Kirkuk Einverleibtwerden. A decisive short-term offensive by Iraqi army and internal Zwistunter to Kurds made this project impossible for time being. But germ istgesetzt. Next, Syrian Kurds will try to resolve mselves from Ihremramponierten State Association.Dogged fight against Iranian influence
Iraq, too, since 40 years in permanent war, is only a shadow of itself after Demi's debacle. At $100 billion, Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi estimates damage caused by terrorist militia alone. In Arab neighbor of Yemen, Saudi Arabia and VereinigtenArabischen Emirates have been dogged by a war against Iranian influence, followed not Can win. Yemen, as well as Syria, is now experiencing a derderzeit largest humanitarian crisis on planet.
Thus, not Saudi Arabia, but IslamischeRepublik Iran is clear winner of double catastrophe of "IslamischemKalifat" and Syrian civil war. The supremacy of Shiites has never been so close to its goal of a continuous power axis from Tehran to Beirut, wiejetzt. Through nuclear treaty, 80 million nation was able to strip its pariah Roleand most international sanctions.
On or hand, three-year "caliphate" desis in Sunni Arab Islam with Saudi Arabia left lead in Einebeispiellose self-destruction. The ideological poison for this historischenNiedergang was in homeland of Prophet Mohammed, after fatal desecration of Mecca 1979 Denwahhabitischen fundamentalists promised free hand.Political and cultural catastrophe
From Morocco to Yemen, from Pakistan to Indonesia, demonized ir missionaries to local, VerwurzelteReligiosität as corrupt and unislamic. And billions of dollars from Courtal Saud ensured that this aggressive intolerance was carried up to every angle of those. Three years ago, she returned as a murderous ideology in Middle East: 30,000 religious fanatics from over a hundred nations ließensich from "Islamic State" as God's Warriors recruit.
The Saudi royal house now finally understands politischeund cultural catastrophe it has done. Suddenly, equally allmächtigewie-leaping heir Mohammed bin Salman wants to tackle everything at once. He recently criticized UltrakonservativenKlerus in his country as clearly as nobody before him; Since n Pious Lords have been silent and waiting for ir Zeitpunktzum counterstrike. Saudi Arabienauf is trying to meet strategic power gains of arch Iran at same time.
Yemen, Iraq and Syria are already in ruins. DerLibanon has, through consensus of its elites, been laboriously preserving peace. But brute meddling course of Saudi crown prince could now also shake DenZedernstaat.
In an earlier version of article it was said that Iraqi prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi treasures damage caused by terrorist militia to a billion dollars. It is true that he estimated cost to 100 billion dollars. We have changed this and regret error.
