Hezbollah Secretary General says Saudi regime’s execution of prominent Islamic scholar Sheikh Nimr Baqir Al Nimr points to the regime’s terrorism and arrogance which will lead to its downfall.
Speaking on Sunday, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah asserted that the execution of Sheikh Nimr underlines Saudi regime’s terrorist arrogance and insistence on murdering all who speak out truth and right.
He offered condolences and congratulations to martyr Sheikh Nimr Nimr's family and all the people Qatif and the Eastern Province in Saudi Arabia for the martyrdom which is the legacy of the prophets.
In a speech during Hezbollah ceremony to mourn and honor Sheikh Mohammad Khatoun, Sayyed Nasrallah said that, “In the Arabian Peninsula a state was established and fallaciously named Saudi Arabia,” adding that it is the land of the Two Holy Mosques, Islam, the first Mujahidin, the Prophet and His Family (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon them) and that Al Saud dynasty, as history documents, imposed itself on it via massacres, intimidation and terrorism.
Sayyed Nasrallah added that the Saudi rulers deny Islamic scholars, whether they are Shiites or Sunnis, the right to express their stances and that they get murdered in case they reject the ruling regime's excesses.
The Hezbollah leader pointed out that the execution of Sheikh Nimr is a serious crime committed by Al Saud regime, adding that the martyr raised his voice of justice peacefully, not violently.
"Sheikh Nimr's blood will haunt Al Saud till the Day of Resurrection."
"The corrupted Saudi monarchy, where the defense lawyer cannot argue with the judge, failed to prove that Sheikh Nimr was armed and this is because he was peaceful as all the Islamic scholars in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia and in Bahrain."
Sayyed Nasrallah mentioned that Sheikh Nimr courageously and clearly demanded that the Saudi regime grants the people their rights and freedom, adding that the Saudi regime executes anyone who speaks out gets executed adding that this happens while the Saudi regime claims to be defending freedom in the region.
"Why did the Saudi regime insist on executing Sheikh Nimr at this time? Why did it ignore all the pleas submitted by Sunni and Shiite scholars to refrain from implementing the verdict?" Sayyed Nasrallah queried.
"In fact, the execution sends a clear message that the Saudi regime does not care for Islamic and the international public opinion and for hundreds of Millions of Sheikh Nimr's lovers who would be hurt by his execution," Sayyed Nasrallah noted. He pointed out that, "The Al Saud regime is explicitly telling people that they can either live under the dictatorship of the royal family or to suffer all sorts of misery, including death."
The Hezbollah leader also stressed that the Saudi regime executed Sheikh Nimr to concentrate more on its scheme of stirring sedition among the Muslims and follow the path of bloodshed, not that of the rational dialogue.
"Shiite Muslims must be vigilante not to fall into the trap of sedition and discord as only Al Saud, not the Sunnis killed Sheikh Nimr."
Sayyed Nasrallah revealed that the United Sates had proposed to the Shiites that they be granted autonomy in the Eastern Saudi province where most of the Saudi oil resources exist, but they rejected the offer."
"The Saudi regime is responsible for all the sedition and discord in the Islamic world, including Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Indonesia, etc," Sayyed Nasrallah maintained
The execution of Sheikh Nimr clearly tells those who are betting on a moderate voice in the Saudi regime that it will launch destructive wars in approaching all the issues but never engaged in constructive dialogue, Sayyed Nasrallah noted.
The Hezbollah leader affirmed that the Saudi regime, via this crime, revealed to the world its real face of Takfiri, criminal terrorism while confronting any one exposes its oppression and crimes within the kingdom and in Yemen.
Sayyed Nasrallah added that a spirit of revenge and hatred, not a political decision, was behind the Saudi war on Yemen.
"The Saudi regime wants to punish and destroy the entire Yemen for rejecting its oppression and does not care about the identity of the president, but for his level of loyalty to its torturing policy."
"The Saudi regime does not want to end the war on Yemen, even if ISIS or Qaeda ruled that country."
Hezbollah Secretary General wondered whether it is high time to say that the terrorist groups are mere agents funded and supported by the Saudi regime, explaining that ISIS and Saudi use similar books in their religious curricula.
"Is it not the high time to say courageously that the principle and spirit of the Takfiri thought which destroys murders, commits massacres and threatens the whole world is produced by the Saudi regime?," posed the Hezbollah chief.
Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say that Al Saud dynasty is involved in the bloodshed in several Arab and Muslim countries, asking: "Is not it high time to speak out against the tyrant destroying Islam and the Islamic Umma? Is not it high time to expel the Saudi regime which violates the human rights? Is not it high time to speak out about the services provided by Al Saud to Britain in its efforts to destroy the Palestinian cause?"
In line with the stance of Sayyeda Zainab (Peace be upond) in front of Yazid the tyrant, Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted that the response to the Saudi crime is to speak the truth, adding that as history teaches us, bloodshed will lead to the downfall of the Al Saud dynasty.
