Destabilization by #Israel+#SaudiArabia+#UAE in the Middle East is equal to the destabilization by #Iran. Is it?

I listened to @PeterBeinart on @FareedZakaria's show. He used this contrast to justify rejecting the idea of a #JCPOA rethink to include Iran's malign activities. /1
Are #Israel #KSA #UAE destabilizing the Middle East equally to or more than #Iran? This juxtaposition is used by Iran govt and sympathizers who suggest Tehran's wide network of proxies & operations in the region is not unique. Rather, it's normal. /2
Keeping #JCPOA intact is a legitimate goal but not on the basis of a fallacy. Moral and political equivalency that @PeterBeinart suggested [b/w #KSA/#Israel/#UAE and #Iran] is worth discussing. In short bursts, just key points, for the sake of informing. /3

#SaudiArabia #Mecca #Coronavirus #Umrah

Saudi Arabia wants to gradually allow the Muslim Umrah pilgrimage again under strict conditions after a seven-month Corona break.
The second largest pilgrimage after the so-called #Hajj was banned at the end of February due to concerns about the spread of the corona virus. As of Sunday, the small pilgrimage should initially be feasible again for believers who are in the country,
said the Saudi Interior Ministry, as the state news agency SPA reported. The small pilgrimage to the city of Mecca, which is holy for Muslims, is recommended for devout Muslims. In contrast to the great pilgrimage (Hajj), the Umrah can be performed at any time.

Some of the African ancestors of the Gullah Geechees were Muslim. The “ring shout”—a form of religious dance where worshipers turn counterclockwise while singing, clapping, and shuffling their feet—was directly inherited from enslaved Muslim slaves brought to the Sea Islands. Image
Research done by Lorenzo Dow Turner, the father of #Gullah studies, shows the worshipers recreated the circumambulation (the act of moving around a sacred object) or tawaf of #Muslim pilgrims around the Ka ́bah in Mecca. This brings to mind the #hajj, which just ended last week.
