I have heard that Ayatollah Khomeini once said that he could forgive saddam for what he did but he could never forgive the saudi government for what they did...

 

Why was this?

He said:

 

The issue of Hijaz is one for which we are still in slumber; the world is still in slumber as to what transpired. The issue of Hijaz is the issue of the greatest Islamic and global sacred precincts that were desecrated. The Ka`bah is respected not only by us and all Muslims, but also by all nations, all nations that follow a divine religion. Ka`bah has been there since the time of creation, and all the prophets had been at its service. Desecration of the Ka`bah is not an issue that should be ignored like that. If we forget the issue of Quds; if we forgive Saddam and all those who did us wrong, we cannot forget the issue of Hijaz. The issue of Hijaz is another story; it is different from others.

Kind Fahd

For Fahd, Khomeini was a danger because the Ayatollah had called the Saudi monarchy “un-Islamic,” though Saudi Arabia was one of Saddam’s chief financiers during his war on Iran. But Saudi-Iranian relations were never good. Fahd’s police kept a close watch on Iranian pilgrims, and in 1987 some of them raised placards criticizing the USA and Israel just outside the House of Allah, the Ka’aba, in Mukkah. It should be mentioned that according to Islamic tradition Allah has absolutely forbidden bloodshed in any form or quantity (haram) in and outside theKa’aba. That’s why the Ka’aba is called Masjid-e-Haram, the “Forbidden Place.” The Iranian pilgrims were not protesting against Fahd or the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but the Saudi police opened fire nonetheless, killing hundreds. King Fahd perpetrated these murders in order to spite Khomeini and to show who was in charge.  

To Khomeini, Fahd’s massacre was the greatest and most painful blow of his life, even worse than the killing of his own son and hundreds of thousands of Iranians during the Iraq war. Khomeini used to say that he could forgive Saddam, but not King Fahd for the the sin he had committed in Mukkah.
