Germany and its allies must re-examine their relationship with Saudi Arabia where arms are sent and oil returns, said Ozdemir at the party’s annual congress on Friday.
He noted that as long as this hypocrisy remains, success is unattainable in the battle against the Daesh Takfiri terrorists.
"Saudi Wahhabism is not part of the problem," he said, stressing that, "It is the source of the problem."Takfirism is largely influenced by Wahhabism, the radical ideology dominating Saudi Arabia and freely preached by Saudi clerics.
The Daesh terrorists, who were initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government, now control parts of Syria and Iraq. They have been engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control.
Ozdemir made the remarks at a time that the monarchy’s forces were engaed in a deadly war on the impoverished Yemen, which has failed to prevent the West from selling arms to Saudis.
Just earlier this month, the Pentagon said that the US State Department has approved a $1.29 billion sale of smart bombs to Riyadh.
