    Those rare moments that WikiLeaks gets invoked at the United Nations are always fun, especially when part of a tense feud between Middle East rivals and involving Hillary Clinton.

    Iranian Ambassador to the UN Gholamali Khoshroo gave a fiery speech during the final days of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York wherein he responded to specific charges of Saudi Arabia that Iran sponsors terrorism and is waging proxy wars on Riyadh throughout the Middle East, saying that global terrorism actually originates with the Saudis.

    The Iranian ambassador supported his case by appealing to a specific WikiLeaks email: “Everybody knows that Saudi Arabia supports terrorism in a very blatant and widespread manner,” he said. In a shock statement before his UN audience, he added, “in the framework of WikiLeaks in 2009, Hillary Clinton is said to have stated that Saudi Arabia is the greatest donor to terrorist groups around the world.”

    Interestingly Khoshroo delivered his speech in Arabic, instead of his native Farsi, in order “to make sure that our position is rendered clear” to Riyadh.

    He was referencing a 2009 intelligence memo released as part of Clinton’s emails which said that “donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide” — though she herself was not the author. The memo continued with Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for Al-Qaida, the Taliban… and other terrorist groups.”

    The Iranian diplomat may have also been referencing another Wikileaks file which shows that in a private speech Hillary Clinton made in 2013, she said: “The Saudis and others are shipping large amounts of weapons – and pretty indiscriminately – not at all targeted toward the people that we think would be the more moderate, least likely, to cause problems in the future.”

    And further, a 2014 WikiLeaks released Hillary Clinton memo spells it out clearer, saying “We need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to Isis and other radical groups in the region.”

    Ambassador Khoshroo used the WikiLeaks evidence to make the case before the UN assembly that the Saudis back both ISIS and Al-Qaeda, using them as proxy forces to conduct attacks on Iran and religious minorities in the region, such as the recent gunning down of 25 at a military parade in Ahvaz in Iran’s southwest.

    His speech also focused heavily on Saudi Arabia’s bloody war in Yemen: “It’s an open secret that the Yemen nation is suffering as a result of the direct machinations and maneuvers of Saudi Arabia,” he added, while holding up photos of Yemeni children who had been killed in an August coalition air strike on a school bus.

    “You say that you’re defending the Arab identity,” the Iranian representative said, addressing the Saudis. “You’re not defending the Arab identity. You’re killing the Arab identity with your dollars. You have no pity for anyone in the Arab World. You have no pity for any Arab people, including those, who are supposedly you allies.”

    Saudi Arabia’s ambassador had previously stated before the assembly that the kingdom “supports the new US strategy to counter Iran, including its seriousness to address the nuclear issue and ballistic missile program and support for terrorism.”

    Meanwhile it’s not Saudi Arabia that’s come under pressure for terrorism charges and regional threats of late. On Tuesday France announced it has frozen the funds of a large swathe of Iran’s Intelligence Ministry, specifically its interior security section as well as an associated diplomat. 

    The French Foreign Ministry’s announcement said that the move was “preventative, targeted and proportionate” and related to counter terror efforts on its own soil.

    However, given the lengthy documentation that’s long existed that makes an even greater case proving Saudi state sponsor of terrorism, perhaps such sanctions should also be directed at Riyadh?

      1. I could care less about the middle east. Heck I woulsnt care if the left and right coast of the usa disappeared. Im gonna worry about me and mine. Only be concerened about things I have some control over.

      2. I doubt there is anywhere in the ME that can’t be claimed to be a State sponsor of terror in one manner or another by someone else that can also have that same label equally applied to themselves as well.

        And very few in the entire world as well. Switzerland maybe, but I’m not having any others readily pop into mind.

        But in the end there are only winners and losers, in the end there can be only one.

        And that one will be the author of its own history as well as that of everyone else.

      3. OPEC is the greatest sponsor of global terrorism!
        Kick the habit people!

      4. Old Guy, has the government sent you your share of Sunni Somalian terrorists yet? They sent over 300,000 to Minnesota so far. And that’s just Somalians. It doesn’t even count the Nigerians, and other west Africans that are being brought in by the millions. Yes, over the last few decades, millions have come from Africa. Mostly Muslims. Enjoy.

        • Nope I live in the heart of KKK country. the adjoining county. Boone county Arkansas is where the national headquarters is located. Read at what the white folks here did to the black enclave at Harrison in the early 1900,s. I moved my Racist, Honky ,Cracker , White Trash , Confederate Flag Flying ,Gun Toting Ass here on purpose. My county has less than 1/2 of one percent a race other than white. That one guy claims to be a native American.

      5. “Ambassador Khoshroo used the WikiLeaks evidence to make the case before the UN assembly that the Saudis back both ISIS and Al-Qaeda…”

        Hillary said they were US backed, in a talking point, which she has repeated, freely, voluntarily, from one public speaking engagement to the next. This is not a leak.


        Why are Saudis taking all the blame for this.

      6. Lock her up

        • None of Hillary’s associates, who died under questionable circumstances, were arch conservative, religious fundamentalists, btw.

          They were her associates, close business relations.

          Noone should think she is a worse, more-dangerous traitor, than her fellow Democrats and Marxists.

      7. Trump is right in the Saudi sphere of influence also as is the entire US military-intelligence, headchoppers no problem. Corruption at the peak of influence the American way. Both parties have sold out Americans yet people imagine a difference between the two. The common single enemy.
