Hatred Between Saudi Arabia And Turkey Were Drawn Years Ago

Hatred between Saudi Arabia and Turkey were drawn years ago, the wounds of 1818 are still fresh. Disputes between Saudi Arabia and Turkey have begun to widen. That is why Saudi Arabia has appealed to its citizens to boycott Turkey.

Azlan al-Azlan, president of Saudi Arabia’s Chamber of Commerce, tweeted and called for a boycott of everything in Turkey. This boycott will be about the import, investment, and tourism of the goods there.

At the same time, Israel is also seen supporting Saudi Arabia against Turkey in this case. Israel has said that it has told NATO to rein in Turkey’s antics, otherwise it will be forced to consider other options. In this appeal, the hidden threat of military action against Turkey can be clearly understood.

If we talk about hatred between Saudi Arabia and Turkey, then its history is quite old. You will remember that in July 2020, Hagia Sophia in Istanbul was described as President Erdon Mosque.

This mosque has very bitter memories of Saudi Arabia behind which Turkey. In 1818, King Abdullah bin Saud of Saudi Arabia was beheaded in front of Hagia Sophia.

Shah Abdullah bin Saud and Wahhabi Imam were brought to Istanbul by tying the soldiers of the Osmania Sultanate, ie, the Ottoman Empire.

When Abdullah was beheaded, the crowd outside Hagia Sophia celebrated fiercely. Not only this, his severed head was kept for three days for people to see. During this period, the soldiers of the Ottoman Empire attacked and demolished the Saudi kingdom capital, Diria, and the outskirts of Riyadh.

The Ottoman Empire itself became a modern-day Turkey in 1924, and present-day Turkey considers Ottoman its glorious history. This incident has given Saudi Arabia an unending pain.

While addressing the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly for the first time, Saudi Arabia’s Shah Sultan had accused Iran of harming the stability of the entire region, while making various accusations on Turkey.

Even if you turn the pages of history, the old rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Turkey can be clearly seen and understood. In fact, Turkey has been trying for a long time to lead the Islamic countries and become their chief.

But currently, Saudi Arabia dominates the OIC, an organization of Islamic countries. The organization has more than 50 Islamic country members. In November 2019, Malaysia, along with Turkey and Pakistan, fueled the exercise to form an organization other than the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

Under this, a conference was organized in Malaysia, in which the Prime Minister of Pakistan was asked to play the chief guest. However, Imran Khan refused to participate in the conference after Saudi Arabia’s direct warning to Pakistan.

His move was supported by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates in January this year when US President Donald Trump gave Israel control of the West Coast and the Jordan Valley as part of his Middle East plan.

On this support, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the Arab world even deceitful. He severely criticized the countries supporting Trump’s plan. Trump, in his order, described Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Also, tell you that Trump was recognized as the capital of Israel in 2017 by Jerusalem. At that time too, Turkey protested strongly. This opposition to Tukai was seen even after the recent historical agreement with Israel and the UAE and Bahrain.

Turkey’s relations with Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi deteriorated following the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul’s Saudi Consulate in October 2018.

After this assassination, Turkey alleged that Khashoggi was killed at the behest of Saudi leadership. Significantly, Khashoggi used to work for the Washington Post. However, Saudi Arabia denies all such allegations.

Not only this, Saudi Arabia has convicted eight people killed by Khashoggi. 5 of these were sentenced to death. Three other people have been given a total of 24 years in prison. According to the Saudi government, 11 people were tried in the case.

However, his name was not disclosed.
