Most Muslims reject US anti-Iran claim

saudi arabian ambassador to washington adel al-jubeir

A new opinion poll shows that more than two-thirds of the Muslim world believes US accusations about Tehran’s involvement in a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian envoy to Washington are fabricated.

According to the Sunday results of the online survey conducted by Doha-based Al-Jazeera news network, with a sampling of 11,556 people, over 65 percent of the respondents said they consider US claims against Iran unfounded and baseless.

Some 35 percent of the surveyed individuals said they believed in the alleged Iranian plot to kill a Saudi diplomat in Washington.

Last Tuesday, the US Justice Department accused Iran of plotting to assassinate Saudi Arabian Ambassador Adel al-Jubeir, with help from a suspected member of a Mexican drug cartel.

Tehran says the media hype created by Washington is an attempt to deflect international attention from the anti-corruption and anti-corporatism protests currently rocking the country.

Iran’s envoy to the UN, Muhammad Khazaei, has filed a complaint against the US for what he called the ”evil plot.”‌

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has described the US accusation as an immature scenario and says US officials will ultimately be forced to apologize.
