Rift between Saudi Arabia and UAE widens as Abu Dhabi is accused of attacking Wahhabism
SANA’A – A Saudi writer has launched an exciting tweet against the UAE government which received wide-ranging interaction through the Twitter site.
The Saudi Writer, Abdullah al-Mizhar commented on the accusation made by the UAE‘s Permanent Representative in UNESCO, Abdullah al-Nuaimi.
He said that Wahhabism (originating in Saudi Arabia) is the cause of extremism in the region, while shows his flirting of “Sufism”.
“The work is systematic and accurate since the Chechen Conference, not for the sake of Sufism, but the main goal is to weaken the UAE ambitions of expansionism),” al-Mizhar said.
“This barrier is Saudi Arabia,” al-Mizhar said, noting that the UAE wants to exclude Saudi Arabia from its front.
According to activists, the UAE is trying to compete with Saudi Arabia and is no longer receptive to the idea that the kingdom is the most important country in the Gulf region.
