Saudi newspaper declares sectarian war on Saad Al-Hariri on eve of election

Saudi newspaper Okaz slammed Thursday former Prime Minister Saad Hariri, criticizing his "Iranian-like beard" and accusing him of "political Shiitization."

"By urging the Sunnis to boycott the parliamentary elections, Saad has done a great favor to the killers of his father. He left the elections arena to terrorist Hizbullah and to the Free Patriotic Movement at the expense of his country and his sect," Okaz said.

The daily added that "Saad today is not the same young man whose tears were wiped by Saudi Arabia after the assassination of his father in February 2005, seeing as Saad has allied with the FPM and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri."

Okaz said that Hariri must bring Lebanon back to its Arab identity, instead of "subordinating" it to Iran.

"This is your historic chance, and maybe you do not deserve it. Choose your country first and your sect second," Okaz addressed Hariri.
