RIYADH: Saudi King Abdullah, whose country is a close US ally, on Wednesday slammed the "illegitimate foreign occupation" of Iraq in an opening speech to the annual Arab summit in Riyadh.

He said that the foreign forces may not be allowed to decide the future of Middle East, adding that Arab leadership is responsible for the disunity among the Arab world and Arab leaders are condemnable, as they could not get over their mutual differences.

"In beloved Iraq, blood is being shed among brothers in the shadow of an illegitimate foreign occupation, and ugly sectarianism threatens civil war," Abdullah said.

He also said that Arab nations, which are planning to revive a five-year-old Middle East peace plan at the summit, would not allow any foreign force to decide the future of the region.

In the past, Saudi leaders including Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal have often criticised US policy in Iraq but have never described its presence there as "illegitimate."

If Arab leaders recover trust in each other and regain their credibility, "the winds of hope will blow on the nation, and then, we will not allow forces from outside the region to determine the future of the region, and only the flag of Arabism will be raised on Arab soil," Abdullah said.

Arab foreign ministers meeting ahead of the summit agreed on Monday to call for an amendment of Iraq`s 2005 constitution to give Sunni Arabs a greater share of power in the war-ravaged country and prevent its breakup.

But Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari responded by saying the government did not need a "diktat" from the Arabs on how to amend its constitution and boost national reconciliation.

Embrace change and democratise.

Democracy was described by Churchill as the worst kind of government except all those that were tried from time to time. Arabs have been in disarray ever since the fall of Abbasid rules. The Ottomans breathed new lease of life in them but the monarchy and autocracy reverted again in Arabs after the fall of Ottoman Empire. If the monarchs and dictators do not democratise their countries, outside forces would do that for them. Just look at the Royalty in Saudi Arabia from the eyes of the outside world. That is what the media should do. And shame on the insignificant monarchy in Jordan. Unity comes from the people and people's say is counted only in democracy.

Good comeback but interest of Islam as well as EU allied security essential

"Arab leadership ( including his own )is responsible for disunity among Muslim countries"
said King Abdullah Adding "illegitimate foreign occupation of Iraq amid bloodshed
must stop immediately".Qadaffi said the same thing after all these years and green
holy book of his own.

Allah helps those who help themselves.EU USA allied presence is trapped .Everyone
Is entangled. All this bloodshed waste of money waste of time past 3 decades is based
upon crazy People crazy Zionists and incompetent Muslim Cult who had wrongly
interpreted “Iqra” themselves who taught allied army wrongly and made them gay
lesbian priests cult saddamist.

Iqra means Mankind based upon Iqra blood Then illicit democracy none functional
judiciary tribunal meaningless doctorate thesis Fraudulently Nobel laureate and above
all human worshipping human or cultism. Wearing Hijab skull cap or doing nude
lap dancing or chanting harikrishna or yahabib (without Any thoughtful outcome)
may have compounded wasted effort.Issue is to evict foreign soldiers with guaranteeing
their safe return to UMMA camp as Business partner in good standing. Islam had
developed methodology. Islam was self Sustaining.

But western few basic methodology drive and patents has also changed the world
Into dynamic struggling kind with will to fight will to survive and revive.Top Priority
Is need To resolve the issue with careful mechanism without war without violence.

Leadership who think they know what they are doing go ahead and solve.make
everyone green making everything green and refresh.Sprinkle Water Purify them.
