"Bedouin riding a camel"
This makes me laugh. It is too funny when the Iraqi Interior Ministry, Bayan Jabr, fired back at the Saudi.
...This Iraq is the cradle of civilisation that taught humanity reading and writing, and some Bedouin riding a camel wants to teach us... They have one god, he is the king, he is the god, and he rules as he likes. A whole country is named after a family...
It might as well be a shot at the whole Arab establishment. It is a response to the racist comment by the Saudi Foreign Minister that the Saudi government is concerned about the growth of Iranian influence in Iraq. Jabr further said that Saudi Arabia should let "Saudi women be allowed to drive cars first before Saudis can talk about Iraq’s internal affairs" (Iraq the Model).
I agree with Mohammed that the comment is extremely undiplomatic and should have not been said, but nevertheless Jabr is correct. The Saudi position is absurd. What we should be concern is the Saudi regime, who is tyranical and beholden to a fundamentalist sect, who oppress women and minority (particularly Shiites). The Saudi is not in a position of criticizing anyone - and for that matter not a single Arab country in the Middle East is any position to criticize Iraq.
