In his late 80’s, Adly Abadir is a Coptic-Christian refugee from Egypt and the international president of Copts United based in
Zurich, Switzerland.Mr. Abadir is an engineer of note who was compelled to escape his homeland because of persecution by the Egyptian regime-much of it is religious intolerance on the part of the Muslim majority towards the Christian Copts-one of the oldest Christian communities in Christendom. And, because Hosni Mubarak’s regime appeases the Wahhabi-influenced radicals of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Abadir has sought to bring together all the minorities in the
Middle East who have endured religious, racial and ethnic persecution at the hands of the Arab-Muslim majority. In an open letter published on his website he declared: “Middle East minorities are suffering from humiliation, subjugation, and persecution in their own lands thanks to their rulers who made themselves subservient to the whims of the Wahhabi king of
The point Abadir makes regarding the influence of the Wahhabi intolerant Islamic ideology is worth internalizing. Saudi petrodollars enabled the Wahhabi regime in Riyadh to highly influence the policies of various Sunni Muslim countries throughout the
Middle East and beyond.
Competition between (Shiite-Muslim) Iran and (Wahhabi-Sunni-Muslim)
Saudi Arabia for the leadership of the Islamic world, enabled by huge oil profits, has put the security of non-Muslim communities in their midst in serious jeopardy – pushing up the level of religious extremism directed towards them.
According to Abadir, the collaboration between the Wahhabis and the Muslim Brotherhood that began in 1975 led to the execution of their mutual plans on September 11, 2001. Bin Laden’s Al Qaeda is an offshoot and a fusion of Wahhabi and Muslim Brotherhood ideology.
Abadir asserts that the perpetrators of 9.11 called the catastrophe “The Manhattan Ghazwa” (Arabic for invasion) which was followed, Abadir added, by Bali, Madrid, London, Taba, Sharm El-Sheikh, and Jordan…
“Saudi Arabia” Abadir contends, “is spreading terror, hatred, and humiliation and, it is killing
Middle East minorities who are actually the region’s original inhabitants. It puts their blood, dignity, and possessions to waste since one of its tenets is to destroy whoever does not follow the backward and regressive Wahhabi ideology.”
The Middle Eastern minorities Abadir refers to include the Copts, Nubians (Sudanese African-Black-Muslims), Shia Muslims (in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain), Bahais (in Iran and the Arab Sunni world), Assyrian-Christians (primarily in Iraq and
Syria), Sabeites, and Jews.
The Shia Islamic Republic of Iran and
Syria are both engaged in ethnic cleansing. The ruling Alawi minority dominating Syria is ethnically cleansing against the non-Arab Kurds (mostly Sunni-Muslim) in the northeastern
Al Hasakah, and replacing them with Arabs. Similarly, the Iranian regime of the Ayatollahs is cleansing the Arab-Sunni majority in the oil rich province of Khuzestan (southwestern Iran), and replacing them with Iranian Shiites and, it is persecuting its large Kurdish minority in northwestern Iran, much as Saddam Hussein did in Iraq.
Iran’s Islamic republic has created serious problems for the large communities of non-Persian minorities, including the Azeri’s and the Baluchis and is treating its small Jewish community – much like Iraq and
Syria did – as hostages. Iran, like
Saudi Arabia has put its triumphalist ideology above everything else, forcing its ideologies on the Iraqis, Palestinians, Lebanese, Somalis, Sudanese, and other Muslim countries in their quest to mobilize an Islamic front against the West.
Abadir pointed out that “Israel’s operations in Lebanon and
Gaza in the last several weeks are nothing but a reaction to the criminal activities of Hezbollah and Hamas – the offshoots of the Muslim Brotherhood.” These two organizations, Abadir added, “commit their crimes in the name of Allah, as if he came down to earth and organized a party to forcibly convert the whole world to Islam through terror and killing.”
“Egypt,” according to Abadir “has become
Saudi Arabia’s whorehouse,” with over five million illegitimate children fathered mostly by rich Saudis who use Egyptian soil for their “nefarious sexual appetites.” He blames the Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak for being bought off by the Saudis and for allowing
Egypt to become a toy in the hands of intolerant Saudi Sheikhs.
Abadir maintains that “Saudi Arabia tried to bribe the U.S. and
Britain, offering to purchase weapons from them in the sum of more than $40 billion dollars, ostensibly to defend against the Iranian danger.” This, said Abadir, was true soon after the beginning of the Iranian subversive activities in the region, using
Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas. The Saudi forces, its religious police and Ulama (Muslim religious scholars), Abadir claims, are willing to purchase weaponry, however,” they cannot absorb and operate the advanced technology built in these weapons.”
Abadir believes that the Saudis are seeking to reinstate the mutual defense treaty with the
U.S. that was abrogated due to Bin Laden and Muslim Brotherhood pressure. He suggests that the “Saudi dynasty is now trapped between its own Wahhabi hammer and the more vicious Iranian anvil.”
Adly Abadir calls on members of all Middle Eastern persecuted minorities in the region and abroad, including American Jews and Christians, “to work together to crush the head of the blood thirsty Wahhabi snake (and the Iranian dragon) as they threaten the rest of the world.”
