Their recent public dealings have exposed the Bani Saud as bosom pals of Bani Isra’il, write Mukhtar Hashmi.
There is little doubt that Bani Saud are acting like frightened mice facing serious danger, even death. In the process, they have exposed themselves as the true allies of Zionists. Created by British colonialists, they have always lived as puppets of the imperialists. This is the only way for them to survive since they do not have support of the masses in the Arabian Peninsula.
By embracing the Zionists so openly, they have confirmed that they are the enemies of Islam and Muslims. Those familiar with their treacherous history always knew this but now even ordinary Muslims have become aware of their real nature. That they should be welcoming the Zionists to the Arabian Peninsula puts the holy land at great risk. The Zionists have always had their eyes on Makkah and Madinah. Their maps show the two holy cities as part of “Greater Israel.”
The Muslim world should wake up before Makkah and Madinah are also lost to the Zionists in the manner of al-Masjid al-Aqsa that was handed over to them in June 1967. The other treacherous family — the Husseins of Jordan — surrendered the first qiblah of Muslims to the Zionists without even making an attempt to defend it. Why would the cowardly and treacherous Bani Saud act any differently?
