Iran Says Saudis are Jews
By Micah Halpern
The head of the Iranian Navy said on Bushehr TV that the Saudi Royal family is Jewish. This was not a compliment. It was an insult and a theological attack.
He was saying that the conflict between Iran and the Saudis goes back to the 7th Century, to the battles between the first Muslims and the Jewish tribes in Arabia.
General Alireza Tangsiri, commander of the Iranian navy said: “We cannot bear to see injustice in a Muslim country that is perpetrated by the Zionists and the seed of the Jews.”
In a clear reference to the assassination by the United States of Qassem Soleimani, the former commander of the IRGC Quds Brigade, he said: “[We cannot bear to see] that Muslims are being slaughtered by people who call themselves Christians but are not.”
And in a clear reference to the Saudis. General Tangsiri said: “These are the very same Jews — and I’d better say Zionists — whose hearts have never aligned with Islam, and even with the Prophet in his time.”
He continued: "The grudge that the enemies harbored towards Soleimani resembles their grudge towards Imam Hussein in Karbala." This was a reference to the battle in which Ali, the son in law of Muhammed, was brutally killed. Ali was the first imam of Shia Muslims, and to the battle in which he was killed, which became a formative event for Shia Islam.
This tirade was a direct attack against the Saudis and a call to all Shiites to understand that the Sunni Saudis are enemies - just like Israel.
