Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah asserted that the execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr underlines Al Saud's terrorist arrogance and insistence on murdering all who speak out truth and right, offering condolences and congratulations to martyr Sheikh Nimr Nimr's family and all the locals of Qatif and the Eastern Province in Saudifor 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 falsely named Saudi Arabia, noting that it is the land of the Two Holy Mosques, Islam, the first Mujahidin, the Prophet and His Family (P) and that Al Saud dynasty, as history documents, imposed itself on it via massacres, intimidation and terrorism.
Aired live by Al-Manar TV, and according to a translation by Mohamed Salami, Sayyed Nasrallah added that with respect to Al Saud, clerics, whether they are Shiites or Sunnites, cannot express their reform stances and that they get murdered in case they reject the ruling regime's actions.
In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah considered that the execution of Sheikh Nimr is a serious crime committed by Al Saud, pointing out that the martyr used to speak out right peacefully, not violently.
"Sheikh Nimr's blood will plague Al Saud till the Day of Resurrection."
"The corrupted Saudi court, where the defense lawyer cannot argue with the judge, failed to prove that Sheikh Nimr held weaponry since he was peaceful as all the clerics in the Eastern Province in Saudi and in Bahrain."
His eminence mentioned that Sheikh Nimr demanded courageously and clearly the Saudi regime to grant the people their rights and freedom, adding that who speaks out gets executed in Saudi which claims to be defending freedom in the region.
"Why did Saudi insist on executing Sheikh Nimr at this time? Why did it ignore all the pleads submitted by Sunnite and Shiite clerics to refrain from implementing the decision?" Sayyed Nasrallah asked.
"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 explained, "Al Saud are also explicitly telling people that they can either live under the dictatorship of the royal family or to suffer all sorts of misery, including death."
Hezbollah leader stressed also that the Saudi regime executed Sheikh Nimr to get more involved in its scheme of stirring seditions among the Muslims and to maintain that it follows the path of bloodshed, not that of the rational dialogue.
"Shia Muslims must be aware so that they do not fall in the trap of seditions as only Al Saud, not the Sunnites killed Sheikh Nimr."
"The United Sates proposed to the Shia scholar in Saudi to grant them an autonomous ruling system in the Eastern Province where most of the Saudi oil resources exist, but they rejected," Sayyed Nasrallah revealed.
"The Saudi regime is responsible for all the seditions 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 the destructive wars in approaching all the issues but never run constructive dialogues, Sayyed Nasrallah confirmed.
His eminence affirmed that the Saudi regime, via this crime, revealed to the world its real face of takfiri, criminal terrorism as it rejects that any one exposes its oppression and criminality within the kingdom and in Yemen.
A spirit of revenge and hatred, not a political decision, was behind the Saudi war on Yemen, Sayyed Nasrallah added.
"Saudi wants to punish and destroy the entire Yemen for rejecting its oppression. It does not care for the identity of the president, but for his degree of loyalty to its torturing policy."
"The Saudi regime does not want to end the war on Yemen, even if ISIL 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 ISIL and Saudi use similar books in their religious curricula.
"Is not it high time to say courageously and regardless of all scores that the principle and spirit of the takfiri thought which destroys, murders, commits massacres and threatens the whole world is produced by Al Saud?"
Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say that Al Saud dynasty is involved in the bloodshed which prevails in several Arab and Muslim countries, asking: "Is not it high time to speak out right before the tyrant which is 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 strike the Palestinian cause?"
In line with the stance of Sayyeda Zainab (P) before Yazid, Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted that the response to the Saudi crime is to speak out right, adding that bloodshed will lead Al Saud dynasty to its downfall as history teaches us.
Eulogizing Sheikh Khatoun
Hezbollah Secretary General reiterated his deep condolences to Sheikh Mohammad Ali Khatoun's family for the loss of the honorable cleric who was a member of Hezbollah Central Council and spent most of his lifetime in his scholarly and jihadi work.
Sayyed Nasrallah said that Sheikh Khatoun was among those who joined the military resistance since its inception, adding that his eminence spent most of his life as a Mujahid and a religious preacher who lectures people on various religious and political subjects.
Sayyed Nasrallah described Sheikh Khatoun was modest, pious and easygoing and that he used to have the same character traits of former Hezbollah SG martyr Secretary General Sayyed Abbas al-Moussawi.
Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Hezbollah moral and jihadi spirit has attained and all the victories, and that none can affect the party's power, reputation and achievements.
With the bless of Sheikh Khatoun and all the martyrs, Hezbollah will always be victorious, Sayyed Nasrallah asserted.
Confirming that Hezbollah will respond to the Israeli crime of assassinating martyr Samir Kuntar, Sayyed Nasrallah concluded by saying that the Zionists must keep afraid of the resistance threat.
The memorial service which was held by Hezbollah on Sunday in Beirut's Dahiyeh was started by a recitation of Holy Quranic verses and displaying a short video about Sheikh Khatoun's life before his eminence's brother delivered a speech on behalf of his family.
