Saudi Crown Prince Rips Iran Supreme Leader: He 'Makes Hitler Look Good'
Saudi Arabia's crown prince ripped Iran's supreme leader in an interview with The Atlantic, saying that Ali Khamenei "makes Hitler look good."
Mohammed bin Salman referred to Khamenei as the "Hitler of the Middle East" and said both men are "evil guys."
"In the 1920s and 1930s, no one saw Hitler as a danger. Only a few people. Until it happened," he told The Atlantic.
Fox News national security analyst Walid Phares said Tuesday that Salman is attempting to sound the alarm about Iran and its aims in the region.
"The Saudi leadership [believes] that the Iran deal is providing Iran with weapons and money," Phares said. "Evidence on the ground shows that Iran is expanding in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and is not showing signs that it is retreating and going back in a peaceful direction."
The Trump administration said it would extend waivers on Iran’s nuclear sanctions earlier this year, keeping alive the landmark 2015 deal for at least another few months.
It was, in part, made to reduce Iran’s ability to produce plutonium and uranium when making nuclear weapons.
Salman met with President Trump at the White House on March 20, where they discussed relations and arms deals between their countries.
