Iran Blames Jared Kushner For Middle East Turmoil

Tyler Durden's picture

Iran’s foreign minister accused President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner of being responsible for the surprise resignation of Lebanon’s prime minister over the weekend, a move that further fueled the regional rivalry between Tehran and Riyadh, and may have resulted in a ballistic missile being fired - and intercepted - near the Saudi capital, Riyadh. As reported on Saturday, Saad Hariri unexpectedly announced his resignation while visiting Riyadh, where he accused Saudi nemesis Iran and its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah of having a “grip” on Lebanon. He also said he feared for his life.

In response, the Iranian foreign minister said the US and Saudi Arabia were responsible for Hariri’s resignation, claiming on twitter that the move was meant to sow tension in Lebanon and the Middle East, the The Times of Israel first reported.

Visits by Kushner & Lebanese PM led to [Saad] Hariri’s bizarre resignation while abroad,” Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted. “Of course, Iran is accused of interference.”

Addressing Saudi Arabia’s intervention in the Yemeni civil war, Zarif accused the kingdom of bombing Yemen “to smithereens, killing 1000’s of innocents including babies.” He also said Saudi Arabia “spreads cholera and famine” in its southern neighbor. The Iranian foreign minister also accused Saudi Arabia of “regional bullying” and destabilizing the Middle East, while trying to pin the blame on Iran. “KSA is engaged in wars of aggression, regional bullying, destabilizing behavior & risky provocations. It blames Iran for the consequences,” he said.

Zarif did not say how Kushner allegedly helped orchestrate Hariri’s decision to step down.

Kushner visited Saudi Arabia in October as part of a four-day trip to the region that also included stops in Israel, Jordan and Egypt, Politico reported last week. On Sunday, the Washington Post added some more detail:

MBS is emboldened by strong support from President Trump and his inner circle, who see him as a kindred disrupter of the status quo — at once a wealthy tycoon and a populist insurgent. It was probably no accident that last month, Jared Kushner, Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, made a personal visit to Riyadh. The two princes are said to have stayed up until nearly 4 a.m. several nights, swapping stories and planning strategy.

Separately, the now former Lebanese prime minister Hariri traveled to the kingdom twice last week, announcing his resignation on the latter trip. Shortly after, Hassan Nasrallah, head of Iran-sponsored Hezbollah, echoed Zarif's accusations, and said the resignation was “imposed” by Saudi Arabia.

Hariri’s resignation has added fuel to an already simmering regional rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia. On Monday, the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen threatened retaliation against Iran over a unsuccessful missile attack on Riyadh carried out by Iran-backed rebels.

Separately, Zarif blamed US President Trump’s visit to the kingdom in May for leading to regional crises. “Visits to the belligerent #KSA have proved hazardous to regional health. Trump visit led to Bahrain repression followed by Qatar debacle,” Zarif also tweeted. Riyadh is a top backer of Sunni-ruled Bahrain, whose Shiite minority has received support from Tehran. Along with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt, Saudi Arabia cut ties with Qatar in June, in part due to its Gulf neighbor’s ties with Iran.

For its part, the White House has provided little detail on Kushner's Saudi meeting: 

“The Senior Advisor to the President, the Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy, and the Special Representative for International Negotiations recently returned from Saudi Arabia,” the White House official said in a statement to POLITICO. “The Senior Advisor has also been in frequent contact with officials from Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.”


“While these regional talks will play an important role, the President reaffirms that peace between Israelis and Palestinians can only be negotiated directly between the two parties and that the United States will continue working closely with the parties to make progress toward that goal.”

Considering that Kushner's original charge as a Trump advisor was to restore peace to the middle east, the fact that the region now finds itself on the verge of war is somewhat ironic, if expected.

Iran Blames Jared Kushner For Middle East Turmoil

My response: I am speechless. ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Little Jared had to sleep in the basement when Uncle Bibi came to visit Kushner's Zionist daddy because Uncle Bibi was given Little Jared's bed to sleep in- if that doesn't tell you all you need to know nothing will.

Methinks the Russians on behalf of the DNC hacked Iran's "clarity" system

Fucking Insane!

You know, much more of this shit and we'll understand why Little Kim-foil feels threatened.

Warmer, follow the tribe Luke.

Kushner gave the GO list for the Crown Prince to arrest the criminal funders of terrorism around the world. Including Alwaleed bin Talal who funds the Clinton Foundation, CIA black ops like 9/11, and also coincidentally owns the top floors of the Mandalay Bay Casino. Noose-tightening.

This is the first event in about 3 years that hasn't been blamed on Russia.

Signs of progress, I suppose.

Iran has repelled zionists for centuries. They have experience and one would be insane to ignore it.

Lebanon and Iran are on the AAZ empire menue. They were mentioned in the "7 countries in 5years" .Iran was the "gran finale" .And the Donald is to deliver this to his zionist masters.

Let's see how the stupid American public is going to swollow this.

"This is how the Tribe survives and thrives"

There's that ... but let's not forget the block buster dark romance novel that tribal elders* penned for the goyim some 2000 years ago.

On it's back they've ridden right to the top.

The *authors have never been identified,  tho the "chosen race" being given a free pass to heaven without atonement clause, and the "throw down your riches" demand, should provide enquiring minds a clue.

Probably the best comment I have ever read.

The Zio Trolls are especially ornery today in that air exercise story.

Kushner is the Mouth of Sauron... an Orthodox Jew with deep ties to Netanyahu, the 'settler' movement and Chabad: quite literally a Jewish Supremacist organization and mafia.

Will Trump allow a Nativity Scene on the WH lawn next to the giant Chabad menorah?

Will Mosley stop washing Orange Jebus' balls when he does not?

Consider reviewing the following as WW3 heats up:

'Israel' will have to suffer.

Agreed. Zio jooz like kushner are insane.

His "insanity" is called demonic possession.

The 666 numbering must be a coincidence; NOT.

This is Kabbalism folks.

You have choices in life, but know what you are involved with.

Yes, there are a few good Jews, Muslims and Christians.

Sadly only a handful.

And, sadly, only a handful know the true meaning of that number.

They are 100% right. Kushner visited the Zionist Entity 1 week prior to this and the Hariri episode.

And the Donald accused Iran of acts of war against SA.

What a complete joke. They can only blame themselves. We are looking at a titantic shift in geopolitics and a massive stirring of governments around the world. Turmoil is going to increase, not decrease in the short term.

No brainer.

Hariri family are billionaires, likely interested in living their days in luxury unimagined by most.

Alternative is to be permanently put to sleep by some lawless dual citizens.

They are only billionaires because the Central Banks let them be. With one key stroke they could be wiped out with no recourse. That is the power of the dark side.

I don't know much, but after watching presidential elections, one after the other, I have a very strong suspicion that elections have nothing to do with who is elected, not at the highest levels.

Iran better have their antennas up. Something is up, maybe typical turmoil and noise, maybe a coming war.

And Iran better be doing a good job of vetting Putin and his reliability should the Saudis/Israel launch missiles or random jet bombers. (Putin just agreed to sell the S400 to the Saudis)

In regards to Syria. The SDF is the new US/Israel proxy (or is quickly becoming so). Thus the SDF taking land from ISIS is even worse than ISIS, such as Raqqah.
