“One of their latest crimes is supporting the secular forces in Egypt against the government of Morsi,” Ibrahim al-Rubaish said in a statement.
Rubaish is considered the religion affairs chief of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the Yemen-based franchise of the jihadist network, formed in a 2009 merger of its Saudi and Yemeni branches.
“The son of Saud was the first to offer congratulations after the fall of the government of Morsi, and the most generous supporter, offering billions to the Tamarod government that rebelled against everything, including Allah,” he said.
Tamarod, or rebellion in Arabic, was the movement behind nationwide protests that preceded the Egypt military intervention to depose Morsi on July 3.
Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states welcomed Egypt’s ouster of Morsi, with Riyadh announcing an aid package of $5 billion to Egypt.
Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates followed suit, bringing the pledges made by the three oil-rich Arab states of the Gulf to $12 billion.
Analysts say Riyadh and its allies are throwing their financial and diplomatic muscle behind Egypt’s army-installed rulers because they see the political Islam espoused by Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood as a destabilising factor.
Ruler of Dubai Sh. Mohammad’s Daughter :Feel sorry for His father’s Support of the Egyptian Dictators
News websites reported that the daughter of Dubai’s ruler resented the United Arab Emirates continued support of the Egyptian army’s suppression of supporters of the deposed President Mohamed Morsi.
According to social media websites, the daughter of the ruler and Prime Minister of Dubai, Sheikha Mahra bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, addressed her father saying, “Sorry father, but our money is the reason for this bloodshed “on her Facebook page.
The UAE announced its support for the isolation of Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi and their support of the Egyptian forces actions against protesters over the past few days.
Please note that the post seems to have been removed from her Facebook page since then, and the Dubai Media office claims the post was a fake.
