Ahmadinejad urges Saudi king to speak up on Gaza

Ahmadinejad urges Saudi king to speak up on Gaza

Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is urging Saudi Arabia's king to break his "silence" over Israel's Gaza offensive that has killed more than 1,000 Palestinians.
Thursday's report by the official IRNA news agency quotes Ahmadinejad as saying in a rare message to Abdullah: "Break your silence over the massacre of your children in Gaza."
Ahmadinejad also urged Abdullah to clearly announce his stance on this crisis to "demolish hopes" of those seeking to forge a rift among Islamic countries.
Arab nations have been at odds how to deal with the Gaza conflict.
The kingdom is hosting a meeting Thursday on Gaza of Gulf countries. Saudi Arabia is overwhelmingly Sunni, as are the Palestinians.
Iran doesn't recognize Israel and supports militant Hamas.
