Member of the Iraqi parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee Abdol Razzaq Heidari told FNA on Wednesday that some political figures in certain countries should be blamed for dispatching terrorists to Iraq and Syria and for supplying them with weapons and equipment.
Some people under the auspicies and supervision of certain Islamic countries, specially some political figures, who have Takfiri or Wahhabi thoughts are sent to ideological and training centers in Syria and Iraq to fight for the terrorist groups, he said.
Also, another Iraqi legislator, Alia Nassif, told FNA today that « the Iraqi government should identify all Arab and non-Arab terrorists and file a lawsuit against the governments of the countries of their origin at the international courts like the Hague ».
Their remarks came a week after activists gathered outside Saudi Arabia’s embassy in Washington, D.C., to denounce Riyadh’s support of terrorism in the Middle East and around the world.
Hundreds of Americans of various Middle Eastern descent attended the protest on to slam Saudi Arabia’s funding of the ISIL terrorist group.
The protesters then marched to the White House to denounce the regime’s intervention in Syria, Yemen, Bahrain and Iraq.
“Saudi, ISIL are the same; the only difference is the name” and “people yes, Saudi no, the royal family’s got to go”, were among the many slogans chanted during the demonstration.
The protesters called on US officials to sever ties with Riyadh, describing the regime as the root of all evil in the Middle East.
“We know that Saudi Arabia is involved in spreading extremism, the Wahhabi ideology, first around the Middle East and South Asia and now it’s really all over the world,” said protest attendee Medea Benjamin, a member of the Code Pink, a peace and social justice movement working to end US-funded wars and occupations.
