Saudi Arabia: King Hints Iran Behind Arab Revolts


Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud said that “unnamed hands” targeting Islam and the Arabs are behind recent events in the region. In a recent televised address to a conference of prominent Saudis, the monarch did not name any country. But Saudi officials have used similar terms to suggest a connection with Shiite Iran, the AP reported.

“There were hands that are known to you all … behind what has happened in the Arab world, regrettably targeting Islam and the Arabs,” Abdullah said.

Saudi Arabia is wary of the wave of Arab Spring uprisings, particularly in nearby Bahrain as well as its eastern part which harbors the Shiite minority.
