Drums of War: Iranians set fire to Saudi diplomatic mission after execution of Shi’ite cleric

As I have repeatedly explained, the fight between Sunni and Shia is a fight to the savage death for who is the true Muslim. The Sunni versus Shia conflict is explained here. Iran is Shia and Saudia Arabia is Sunni. The Saudis executed a Shia cleric who was agitating for the overthrow of the Saudi government. Iran has been waging a proxy war against the Saudis in Yemen, Syria, etc.

Al-Qaeda preacher Faris al-Zahrani and Shia leader Nimr al-Nimr, who led anti-government actions, were among those 47 executed by the Saudi regime.

The Iranians, who systematically execute “enemies of the Islamic State,” got a taste of their own medicine.

Al Jazeera, a Sunni Muslim Brotherhood media organization, reported it this way:

In a press statement read out on state TV on Saturday, the Saudi ministry listed the names of all those it said were already convicted on charges of terrorism.

The death sentence given to Nimr al-Nimr, who led anti-government protests in the country’s east, was confirmed by the Supreme Court in October.
Faris al-Zahrani had been in custody ever since his detention near the Yemeni border in 2004 [Youtube]

He was convicted of sedition, disobedience and bearing arms. Nimr did not deny the political charges against him, but said he never carried weapons or called for violence.

The execution prompted calls for demonstrations in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province and in other countries of the Middle East, but the brother of Nimr called for calm in Eastern Province.

“This action will spark anger of [Shia] youths” in Saudi Arabia, but “we reject violence and clashing with authorities,” said Mohammed al-Nimr.

Many of the other men executed had been linked to attacks in the kingdom between 2003 and 2006, blamed on al-Qaeda.

“Report: Iranians set fire to Saudi diplomatic mission after execution of Shi’ite cleric,” J Post, January 2, 2015

Arab-language media outlets are reporting on Saturday that enraged mobs of Iranians set fire to a Saudi diplomatic mission in Iran.

The Iranian regime has denounced its longtime Sunni rival Saudi Arabia after the government in Riyadh executed 47 people, among them a prominent Shi’ite cleric that was accused with fomenting sectarian unrest.

  • Cate

    Go – knock yourselves ALL the way out Iran and Saudi Arabia. Kill each other with wild abandon!!

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      This intra Muslim war has already spilled into the West.

      • Mindy Robinson

        The west needs to shove it back into it’s own borders and then stay out of their war. Let them kill each other, they enjoy it.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Never interrupt enimies when they are killing each other. Go wild, follow the profit.

    • ______________

      It would be great if this could turn into a modern version of the Iran-Iraq War. Just let the Scuzlims kill each other off as long as possible.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        They kill each other all the time, all this is would be formalization of continuing hostilities. But, with any luck, it will escalate.

  • groinpains

    Call all our troops and American nationals back to the US. Close all our borders to muslim immigration. Then, show our generous support for the muslims by supplying an unlimited number of suicide vests. We can watch and eat popcorn.

    • Millionmileman

      On a Sabbath morning, In September 1970 I was on a kibbutz facing the border of Syria but facing Jordan from Israel’s side of the River Jordan. This was started by Black September trying to take over Jordan. The topography placed us a good mile or two out of range but being a day of rest we brought out deckchairs, chips a couple cases of “Tempo,” orange flavored soda. By the afternoon the Jordanian Army gave a preview of the 1986 Bears-Patriots Super Bowl!

      • Cate

        OMG – Tempo. Now THAT brought back a flood of memories. I remember that stuff well! When I was in Israel back in the day, wherever we were guests, that’s what was on the tables. From the north to the south. Thanks for that, Millionmileman. You made my evening.

      Every terrorist attack, implicitly by Muslims, helps Donald Trump and his ban the immigration/invasion of Muslims into the US. Let Muslims continue to flow into Eurabia.

    • faraway

      We should always support the losing side until there’s just one man left standing.

    • Mindy Robinson

      I am convicted that is pretty much what has to happen. islam needs to duke it out with themselves, there are no good guys with islam, just bad guys. We need to make certain none of them can get out while it’s taking place. None of them are on the right side, none of them are the victims, they are all in a massive, evil cult. Let there finally be a victor assuming they don’t annihilate themselves.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        The Shitites are on the short end of that stick. Sunnis are the vast majority of the muslum world. I’d rather see both groups of psychopaths annihilate each other.

    They both are words that begin with S … another S word can be substituted !!! 😎

    • Mahou Shoujo

      A word describing islam that starts with “s”
      There is one that comes to mind, I confess
      It seems somewhat logical
      The word scatalogical
      Describes the islamic mess.

      • Darrell Standing

        The lovely poetess strikes again … I knew you’d take my straight line and work wonders with it !!! 😎

        • Mahou Shoujo

          At risk of being though an immodest skank, have had a bit of practice dealing with lines. Your’s are good, don’t mind dealing with them at all.

          • Darrell Standing

            No chance of that darlin’ … I was hoping you’d see that and finish it … thanks !!! 😎

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Engrish can be fun.

  • Kook of the East

    Bullcrap.
    They are both pussies.
    Neither one will do sh!t.

    • harbidoll

      they will hire their blond, blue eyed soldiersslaves to fight for them

  • cdnmohamhater

    Good thing the UN helped Iran get some nukes…..it will be a much brighter day when the sodomites are finished….

  • bill reitzes

    moslems killing other moslems for allah, has to be viewed as a positive step.
    Arm them both to the teeth with camels and swords, and let them have at it.

  • mamayake

    Let them turn against eachother instead of the west!

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      The jihadis already have their sights set on the West.

  • Janis

    Some more action at the Chop, Chop Square. (what foreigners call it) People losing their heads on a Friday, their day of religion. Business as usual. At least they’re leaving the women alone this time.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Yes, but pity the livestock.

      • harbidoll

        LOL

      • Sarita La Cubanita

        LOL omg

    • Sarita La Cubanita

      I hadn’t thought of that. Good point.

  • Fred Sawyer

    Let’s hope they all kill each other. Get Iraq and Syria involved and make it a fatal four way wwf style. Maybe Iran has chemical weapons left from the 1980s war with Iraq- they can all use chemical weapons on each other.

    • harbidoll

      Didn’t the west (Obama) have to even up the playing field tween S. A. & Iran by giving Iran permission to build more rockets & future bomb

      • Fred Sawyer

        Silly me. Forgot about that. That deal was a JOKE

  • Johnno

    So, Saudi Arabia executes the prominent Shi’te cleric, Nimr al- Nimr and 46 others and the UN elected Saudi Arabia to be(head) of the Human Rights Council? Go figure……

    • Mahou Shoujo

      That is the U.n’s interpretation of human rights. How do you like islam so far?

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Islam is the Religion of Peace. They and Socialists keep telling us so, despite all the evidence to the contrary.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Socialists are born egotistical liars, they will insist you believe them rather than your own eyes.

        • jeff dee

          Islam has absolutely nothing to do with Islam.

      • Mindy Robinson

        I just recently realized there are no good guys with islam, all nations need to step away and let them have at each other while insuring they can’t slither out of their own created hell and continue on with their blood lust in other nations. You watch, every developed nation will be outlawing the unholy islam within the next few years.

        • Steve

          I agree. A few countries have already outlawed the Islamic cult.

    • harbidoll

      he was an Ayatollah! they have 45 of such men with this title.He was assigned to S. BArbaria

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    Again, Muslims can’t get along with fellow Muslims, yet we keep hearing the same ol’ Taqiyya that Muslims respect other religions.

    Seems that Socialists practice Taqqiya too.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Even more than muslims, if that’s possible.

  • hurricanepaul

    I mean, can you really blame these people for wanting to KILL each other? Have you seen the faces of their “women” when they remove their burka’s?
    I’m telling you, I’ve seen more attractive FISH.
    No wonder they are all so ANGRY all the time and more willing to blow themselves up with their suicide vests.

  • Darrell Standing

    They can just gather around the combination Sunni/Shiite can … until things work their way out !!! 😎

    • harbidoll

      the lid threw me off for a minute but this is all that’s left of the black rock that fell from heaven. Read they carved a female goddess called Ashara- & set her up in Babylon. Bible calls her Queen of heaven/Harlots. Mohammed’s tribe brought what was left of her to Mecca.

    • Sarita La Cubanita

      ^^^ Isn’t that what they have inside that black shoebox in Mecca?

      • Darrell Standing

        Yep … the “Hajar-e-Aswad” the black stone plus frame … they stick their stupid heads in there to kiss the stone !!!
        I’ve always found it funny (for a bunch that treat women like dirt) that they are sticking their faces into a large metal vagina !!! Of course I added a lid to make it look like a toilet (it was actually used for a bit as a urinal) !!!

        • Sarita La Cubanita

          Revolting. These people are trash. The camel urine drinking, the torture and murder… is there anything that isn’t objectionable about Muslims?

          • Darrell Standing

            Hmmm … can’t think of anything !!! 😎

  • Tatonka

    With a bit luck they’ll kill each other off

  • conan_drum

    They are always talking about Allah the merciful. Mercy seems to be in short supply in both of these countries, especially in the country of Mohammad’s birth!

  • jeff dee

    Islam has nothing to do with Islam.

  • steiner

    Now, I guess fomenting unrest in Saudi Arabia may imply speaking against their version of Islam…consequently, we in the Western world must be very careful not to offend their religion…and this is what we have come to?! Please, please, do not vote for Clinton! hopefully Trump is now realizing how Clinton is using her logic to accuse Trump for offending Muslims to the point that her claim that they turn to Alshabab because they feel offended seems justified…and yet being part of an administration responsible for the creation of ISIL and the support of the muslim Brotherhood, and what not, is perfectly fine. The reality is that if muslims (supposedly peaceful ones) saw the Alshabab video, they should blame alshabab for the problems it has created for islam, and should back Americans like Trump who seek to stop this extremism. This is not happening, they want trump out because they are afraid that he will stop their extremism….vote for Trump…

    • Janis

      So true. It was the AL Shabab militants who captured a North American journalist who travelled to Somalia, only to get abducted and held captive by AL Shababa terrorists and held for ransom for 15 months. She was raped, beaten, and forced to convert to Islam. When she was able to escape, she made her way to a Mosque, where she thought she had found safety (members of the mosque were there), but instead they threw her back to the savages who had been raping her. Every country in the free world, needs leaders who are not afraid to take this kind of evil on. But instead they guard their mosques, after their adherents slaughter 130 innocents in their city.

  • Drew the Infidel

    One has to wonder about the perpetual strife between these two factions of primitives. The only difference between us Methodists and other Protestants is that we will at least speak to each other in the liquor store.

  • moberndorf

    I sincerely hope that they kill all of each other. Painfully.

  • Terry101

    The only ‘good’ thing about Islam is the Sunni/Shia split. It is like if the Waffen SS fought the Wehrmacht in WW2.

  • WarEagle82

    If only we can remind them that they also hate each other, it might buy us some time. But during the Iran-Iraq War in the 80s, we learned that there are a lot more Iranians than Arabs in the Arabian peninsula and that doesn’t bode well for the Saudis.

    Still, if they are busy killing each other, it gives us a break.

    It’s a good think we have all these western-style, liberal democracies popping up the Middle East. Oh, wait….

  • joe1429

    Isnt it strange, how the embassies of countries that the mullahs disagree with arent safe in iran, despite intl law. I suggest the saudis take away their protection from the iranian embassy in their country, and let it get trashed, the same way the iranians did to the american embassy in 79, and now the saudi embassy

  • Esteban Sperber

    In VII century started Islam, is a war between Persia and Arabia untill know: Iranies and Arabs.

  • Mindy Robinson

    I have noticed there is no good guy with islam. We need to step back and let them have at each other, until a victor emerges. There are no good guys in islam.

  • Patriot Girl

    Sounds good to me! Let those craven savages destroy each other and leave the west in peace! But we will never be that lucky because I believe while they loathe one another we in the west are their true enemies… God keep Israel safe in these horrible times.. It’s as though the earth split opened and released all the devils from hell (Muslim savages) to destroy us, out populate us, and take our countries! I never thought I would see this horrible time.. Growing up in 60’s it was the evil empire (USSR) we all feared and how I long for those days once more… The Berlin Wall falling was the beginning of the end for USA and Europe bec the Soviet order as loathsome as it was kept the savages in check.. They would’ve never dreamed crossing through all those countries to get to Germany!. Boundaries were drawn and respected and we didn’t import millions of savages who detest what and who we are only to come here and suck up all our welfare and housing and get citizenship to boot! Those who have led us here through unbridled immigration will have soo much blood on their hands when we the people have had enough! They will answer for this one day (the hell hag shrillary, pelosi, boxer, Feinstein, Reid, McConnell, gowdy, GUITERREZ .. The list of traitors is endless! But the MULLAH AND HIS ACOLYTES DESERVE ALL OUR SCORN AND SHOULD PAY FOR THE RUIN OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY!
