Hours after Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Bahrain cut off diplomatic ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran, the foreign ministers from Egypt and Oman both sharply criticized these countries for creating turmoil in the region.

Saudi Arabia attempted to get several Arab League countries to end diplomatic relations with Iran after they brashly forced the Iranian ambassador and his staff to leave the country.

The Egyptian and Omani governments rebuked the Saudi regime’s diplomatic war against Iran, stating that they refuse to follow suit and create unwarranted hostility between their nations.

The Saudi regime has a long history of opposing Iran, dating back to the Iran-Iraq War when they funded Saddam Hussein’s war machine against the newly created government of Iran.

Egypt, Iran, and Oman continue to enjoy friendly relations, while Iran and Oman have entered into a naval pact that requires them to conduct military exercises together.

Oman is the only country in the moslem world that fascinates me. If I eventually decide to become a Moslem after years of soul searching, it would be because of the peaceful and rational impressional impact of Oman has on me!!!
