Iraqi Shiite Imam and former MP Jalal Al-Din Al-Saghir said that even though the Shiites are the minority in the numerical sense, "we are the majority, strategically speaking." The Shiites control the oil reserves in the region, as well as the straits controlling international maritime traffic, he said. The address was posted on the Internet on April 28."Do you think that the Syrian army is behind the improved security in Syria? Seriously?! The Syrian army? . . Shiite special forces and mujahideen go there and sacrifice their lives. They fight and die as martyrs, and then they say to the Syrians: We have liberated this area for you. The next day, the Syrians sell it as an act of corruption or treason. So it should come as no surprise that the Americans want to sign deals with Iran. They don't do it out of love for Iran, or anything. It is no surprise that they broke away from the Saudis, and left them with broken bones. The last meeting between Obama and Abdullah was a reprimand. Following the meeting, a top US official said: "We have never seen anyone worse than the Saudi rulers." The Saudi king will be gone, Allah willing, in a day or two, or maybe 10-20 days. That will be the end of the story. The armies they sent to Syria were vanquished, and Allah willing, so will the armies that they have sent to Iraq. The moment that our leadership is replaced by a clean and honest one, we will not be stopped - not by ISIS and not by Abu-ISIS."
