The Protector Of The Haramayn ?

Muslim pilgrims walk near a construction crane that crashed into the Grand Mosque in the Muslim holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, Sept. 12, 2015.   At least 107 people were killed when the crane toppled over at Mecca's Grand Mosque on Sept. 11.                        (photo by REUTERS/Mohamed Al Hwaity)

Saudi Arabia has pretty much given up on its status of Protector of the Two Holy Places, Al Madina and Mecca. (Al Haramayn)

Saudi Arabia has banned Muslims from Yemen and Syria from participating in the Hajj... a political ban which has superseded the status of the Hajj as one of the pillars of Islam, an act of political expedience for no one, except Saudi Arabia itself.
Thus, the universality of the protectorate of the holy places has been relegated to being a myth, which Saudi Arabia will observe or ignore as it suits Saudi Arabia.

Even if you be a Muslim who is not banned from the Hajj, you are a chicken to be plucked by the Saudi Kingdom:

...However, the moment a Muslim decides to make the pilgrimage, he is at the mercy of the commercialization of this religious duty. From visa fees imposed by the Saudi government to transportation and accommodation charges, pilgrims are a source of income to both the Saudi government and service providers. The Saudi government prefers to call pilgrims “guests of God,” but these guests pay a high price. It takes some Muslims a lifetime to save for this important journey; many may never have enough resources to make it. Others can be banned for political reasons...

Saudi Arabia actions may in other areas are ominous and contrary to religious sentiment:

...Hasan Sufyani, a leading political analyst at the Sana’a Institute for Arabic Studies, argues that the kingdom’s henchmen are laying the groundwork for a religious cleansing movement.

“Religious minorities in the Middle East have never been under such aggravated threat. Christians in Iraq and Syria have been massacred en masse, Shia Muslims have been persecuted, their faith belittled and chastised by radicals on Riyadh’s payroll,” Sufyani told MintPress News.

When I first saw the picture at the top of the crane which had fallen over, I thought "Darabat Yad Allahi !"...

! ضربت يد الله

The hand of Allah has struck...

Stand too closely as we do in perilous alliance with the unholy House of Saud andwe will reap their whirlwind, also.
