Israel’s ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer has chastised the global double standards over the world’s protest after the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
During a panel discussion, Ron also deliberated on the efforts made by Turkey and Qatar to ruin Saudi Arabia’s relationship with the United States. He stated that it has become hard for him to take the statements of anger sternly that was caused because of the murder and also the request for rudimentary change to the relationship with Saudi Arabia. He added that previously these people only backed an accord that entitled an asserted enemy of the US with billions of dollars.
Ron also directed the criticism of the US decision to pull out from the Iran nuclear deal and enforcement of sanctions. He further added that if they get infuriated with the murder of just one person, then they should be equally disgusted with the killings of the five-hundred thousand. He even alludes to the nuclear deal that had allowed Bashar al-Assad to kill over 500,000 Syrians. Furthermore, he criticized, a Qatari owned news channel Al Jazeera for spreading anti-Semitic and anti-Americn messages. In this respect, he stated Turkey and Qatar are trying hard to ruin the relationship between the US and Saudi Arabia.
Ron further commented that the US needs to be very careful about pulling out from the diplomatic relationship it has with Saudi Arabia; as the US and Iran don’t share any interests and values.
