On the 2nd of January, Saudi Arabia executed a prominent Muslim Shi’ite leader sending a strong message to the Shi’ite world – primarily its arch-regional rival Iran. The signal by the Saudi monarch’s, amid growing regional proxy-wars, was a claim of leadership to the Sunni Muslim world; One that has brought about a harsh response by Iran’s leaders, proclaiming the Saudi act would bring about “divine revenge” – a statement which prompted an angry Iranian mob to storm the Saudi diplomatic mission in Tehran.
These occurrences have severed the already strained relations between the Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims– with fears of the ongoing chaos in the Middle East deteriorating further to new lows.
