Sticking one’s nose where it doesn’t belong

Yes, the Saudis are in a snit all right.


Amid a diplomatic spat between Saudi Arabia and Canada, a pro-Saudi Government Twitter account shared – and then deleted – a digitally altered image that appeared to show a plane flying towards the skyline of Toronto, Canada’s largest city.

The image, shared by the account @infographic_ksa, was accompanied by a message in English that contained the saying, “He who interferes with what doesn’t concern him finds what doesn’t please him.” The text “sticking one’s nose where it doesn’t belong!” was also superimposed over the image.

Although the image was deleted, screenshots of the tweet were quickly shared.

The post reminded many social media users of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the United States, in which planes were deliberately flown into the World Trade Center towers in New York and the Pentagon. A total of 2977 people were killed.

Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were citizens of Saudi Arabia, and Saudi royals have long been accused of complicity in the attack.
