Iran Declares A War On Mecca By Banning Shiites To Do Pilgrims To The Holiest Sites In Islam

This is becoming unbelievable. Iran has just forbidden its citizens from practicing the Hajj to Mecca, one of the five pillars of Islam. Iran’s prohibition to  travel  to Islam’s holiest sites, Mecca and Media, confirms what we have been saying all along, that Iran will eventually abandon Mecca altogether. As it seems the Sunni-Shiite divide reveals a major schism between two Muslim holy cities, Mecca on the one hand and Karbala on the other, an un-healable divide that Scriptures in Isaiah 21 predicts Iran will end up nuking Arabia.

Iran in order to divert attention from Mecca found the typical excuse that governments always do to spark a rivalry: they claimed that two teenaged boys were abused by Saudi airport officials while returning from a pilgrimage.

So Iran took this action regardless that in the incident, no abuse has happened, and the two policemen who allegedly attempted the abuse (which no one knows the details) were identified and detained by Saudi police. This was even confirmed by Ali Ghaziasgar, the Supreme Leader’s representative for Hajj affairs was quoted as saying.

But Iran’s alleged abuse story did what Iran wanted, sparked unauthorized protests at the Saudi Embassy in Tehran on Saturday with increased public anger has grown over the incident, with President Hassan Rouhani even ordering an investigation and Iran’s Foreign Ministry summoning a Saudi diplomat for an explanation.
