The illegitimate rulers of Saudi Arabia insist President Bashar al Asad has no role to play in Syria' future. Who gave the Najdi Bedouins the right to decide who should rule in another country when they have no legitimacy even in their own? Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi lashed out at Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir for making such a comment.

In one of the strongest statements to come out of Damascus, Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi has told the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir to keep out of Syrian affairs. Al-Zoubi was speaking on Syrian Ikhbariya TV today when he castigated the Saudi regime for its destructive role in Syria. He was responding to comments made by the Saudi foreign minister a day earlier in which the latter said the kingdom saw no role for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in any political transition in the war-wracked country.

The conspiratorial powers have realised that overthrowing Asad is not a realistic option at present.

The Syrian Information Minister lashed out at Riyadh saying it cannot play a “productive” role in finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria since the Saudi kingdom has the blood of innocent people such as those in Yemen and Syria on its hands.

Al-Zoubi used particularly harsh language against Jubeir describing him as a “tumor” and a “servant,” saying the Saudi minister and “his masters have been notorious for having the blood of Muslims and Arabs on their hands.” He went on to excoriate Jubeir saying he “who has no clue how diplomacy and politics work, should keep his mouth closed and keep his country out of a matter that is none of its business.”

The Saudi regime has unleashed takfiri terrorists in Syria since the beginning of the foreign-imposed war. After nearly five years of blood-letting whose ostensible purpose was to overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Asad, the foreign-backed conspiracy has failed. The conspiratorial powers—the US, Zionist Israel, Turkey and others—have realised that overthrowing Asad is not a realistic option at present. The Washington warlords have therefore decided to change tack even if they have not given up on mischief-making.

International talks on the Syrian turmoil are scheduled to take place in the Austrian capital Vienna tomorrow. About a dozen countries including Iran, Russia, the US, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are expected to attend. Damascus is unhappy about Saudi presence seeing the regime as the principal instigator of turmoil in Syria.

From Damascus’ point of view, the presence of Iran and Russia, its two closest allies, is a good development. Whether the talks will produce any results is a moot point but given that nearly 250,000 people have died in Syria and led to millions of others fleeing the war-torn country, minds are being focused on finding a solution.

This is especially acute in Europe that has had to take the bulk of Syrian refugees as well as others fleeing other war zones such as Afghanistan and Somalia.
