Iran responded this evening (Friday) to Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s remarks against Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calling the Crown Prince “weak and childish.”

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghassemi said in an official response broadcasted on state television that “nobody in the world and in the international arena trusts the prince due to his behavior and remarks.” The spokesman added that Crown Prince bin Salman “decided to follow the path of famous dictators from the region and he should think well about their fate.”

This morning, JOL reported bin Salman’s unprecedented attack of Khamenei. “We learned from Europe that appeasement doesn’t work,” MBS told the New York Times in a special interview. “We don’t want the new Hitler in Iran to repeat what happened in Europe in the Middle East.” The young defense minister is striving to build a coalition against Iran with the support of US President Donald Trump, who he claimed is “the right person at the right time.”
