Iran’s Defense Minister has warned the kingdom that nowhere will be safe except Islam’s holiest places Mecca and Medina if Saudi Arabia does anything “ignorant.”

Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan made the comments on Sunday after a Saudi prince threatened to move the Sunni- Shia “battle” of Islam into Iranian territory.

Since the U.S. invasion of Iraq and subsequent withdrawal, the Middle East has been consumed by the likes of Al-Qaeda and ISIS.

Iran has been utilizing Hezbollah for fighting and training in reaction to events in its neighborhood.

The Sunni-Shia battle of Islam was unheard of prior to 9/11.

Saudi Arabia has been providing extremist doctrine to Al-Qaeda, and later on to ISIS, ever since the Russian invasion of Afghanistan during the 1980s.
