UNDOUBTEDLY, the Arab world needs an effective and influential power able to form a solid nucleus for facing major challenges in this sensitive stage in our history.
Therefore, when we see some other countries do so, we turn to them because such countries will be the source of actual protection for Arab national security.
What if this case is about the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and its Arabian and regional role, where its nucleus lies on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with its financial, human resources, mineral wealth and vast geographical scope — and also the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and its capabilities that everyone knows?
These two countries have proven their abilities in forming a political and security umbrella for countering humongous evil plots against our regimes. In fact, countering threats to the Arab world.
The ability and strength of the UAE made it spearhead the standoff under the youthful and aspiring leadership of Sheikh Muhammad bin Zayed and Sheikh Muhammad bin Rashid.
This is also the case in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under the veteran leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and his young crown prince who is aspiring to modernize the country at a time he is confronting continuous attempts to undermine security and stability of the kingdom.
Since 1979, the kingdom has been sustaining series of terrorist attacks by Iran’s regime, its agents and soldiers especially on the most sacred place in the world.
Hence, today’s attack through the Houthi rebels is a clear indication that the kingdom and the Arab coalition are not only confronting the Houthis as the real confrontation is with the evil of the Mullah in Iran which is targeting all GCC countries.
This is due to the fact that the Persian expansionism scheme can only be achieved if the Mullah regime controls these sacred areas and strives to change the culture of the region as a whole.
Because of this, the scheme failed to achieve any of its objectives. Despite continuous terrorist aggressions from almost all directions, its information media resorted to campaigns of lies and fabrications with the hope that it can change the course of facts with series of lies.
If the weapon of an incapacitated cowardice is insult, then the weapon of a strong sagacious believer is fact. Based on this deduction, the two leaderships — Saudi and UAE — are combating media lies wisely by not paying attention to such lies, because they are preoccupied with major issues rather than responding to shenanigans.
These two countries are working towards completing the course of modernization which started decades ago when the Mullah regime was drowning in the swamp of blood by imposing itself on the rule and depending on intimidations and destabilization of neighbors’ security through terrorist militias, such as ‘Hezbollah’ and ‘Hezbo Dawah’, as well as its alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood group.
In this respect, the first real trial that Iran’s regime underwent proved its inability and exposed it as merely a vocal phenomenon; whereas the kingdom and the UAE succeeded in overcoming historic challenges and trials which were imposed on them. They exited from trials to be in a better situation than before.
Whether during the first trial when these two countries carried most of the burdens in confronting the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait or during the aggression on Bahrain, they played a major role in crushing dissidents and dismantling terror cells and groups planted by Iran.
Indeed, the fabrications and lies campaign is major and the mouthpieces are propagating it day and night. However, the people, amid the social communication media revolution, have become more aware and able to distinguish between evil and good, especially if evil is emitting from an evil source.
Nonetheless, if the aggression rhetoric is based on the saying, “A little neglect may breed great mischief,” the kingdom and UAE has immense capability to crush a great mischief. Their people, together with all other GCC nationals, form a protective fence for the royal houses in these countries.
Therefore, all that remains to be said is, “The intelligent suffers in bliss with his mind,” because he is striving to be on board development and luxury for his people which is the case with Saudi Arabia and UAE.
As for Iran, “The ignorant in misery lives blissfully,” because he goes in the darkness of terrorism while claiming to be exporting illusionary revolution which has brought nothing but fury, hunger, misery and sanctions.
