"To the Syrians, we are all like Ants" Rafic Hariri

Few days before his assassination in 2005, late Rafic Hariri told a Lebanese politician visiting him "to the Syrians, we are all like ants" (bil nisba lil souriyin nahnou jami3an kal niml). I wonder if Saad Hariri remembers those words these days and if he does, what does he think of them? Except of course, we need to exchange "Syrians" with "Saudi Arabians" for a better understanding of what is happening here.
