Two important security events took place in Saudi Arabia within a few days. A terrorist attack in the eastern city of Saihat, where two security men were killed after being attacked by an armed group who fled afterward.
The second was the announcement by the Saudi Interior Ministry of the Al-Harazat cell, which included 46 members who were arrested. The cell was responsible for the attack on the Prophet's Mosque in July 2016.
Despite the ideological and doctrinal differences between the two groups, the common factor between them is that they are both armed. Violence is their way of imposing ideas, breaking the law and the authority of the “state”.
Terrorism is not related to a specific doctrine, but rather is an exclusionary behavior practiced by groups with an unilateral, radical thinking that does not believe in the right of the other person to have different opinion, or in conversation as a means of communication, change and reform.Hassan Al Mustafa
At the same level of danger comes the question of “sectarianism”, as a symbolic and intellectual terrorism that establishes physical violence, gives legitimacy to the accusation of disbelief, exclusion and desecration of the other.
After every terrorist act in Saudi Arabia we find that the social networking sites are filled with many provocative tweets that pushes elements of society into conflict.
