Saudi Arabia Welcomes the New Year 2016 with Salafist Compassion and Empathy.
The New Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Nayef, in his Sagacious Wisdom, Summarily Executes Shi’ite Holy Leader, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr!
The Holy Wars Continue!
The Holy Wars Continue!
For moment there, I was becoming concerned by our brave Hawaiian/Kenyan Leader, Sheikh Obama, and his obsessive needs to create false flags and stand-downs like Sandy Hook in order to impose gun control. Yet, no act of stupidity by Obama can really match the pubescent thoughts of the present rulers of Saudi Arabia. After having just executed over 157 people to mark the beginning of the new year, Saudi Arabia sent ‘a message of determination to Iran’ [NYTimes, Ben Hubbard, January 2, 2016] by killing the most revered Shi’ite leader in that God-forsaken rat hole, Sheikh Nimr al Nimr, the leader of the minority Shi’ites in Saudi Arabia.
Since Islam provides for more than ample allowance for the eye-for-eye Code of Hammurabi, The Saudi Arabian Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulazziz Al Sheikh “called these executions a ‘mercy to the prisoners’ because the executions would save them from committing more evil acts.” Now, if that reasoning is not solipsistic, I don’t know what else to call it, other than venal, absurd, short-sighted and clearly self-destructive.
If anyone in America or the western world thinks that the present reign of terror is about anything other than Shi’ite versus Sunnis; they then should keep their hands on their smartphone and their minds on social media—lost in the world of binary numbers and the Kardashians. Nothing has changed in decades or centuries, since the Shi’ites and Sunnis have been killing each other over a belief; interpretation of the Koran; or whatever rationalization might be proffered at a particular time.
I have repeatedly warned the Saudi Kingdom that they are living in a world of self-created misery and death that has been their inveterate companion since the birth of that desert kingship [after WWI]. Nothing was more ill-timed and poorly conceived than executing a highly revered holy man [whatever his religion] alongside common criminals who were absurdly categorized as ‘Al Qaeda/ISIS’ terrorists.
No one in the world will believe that Saudi Arabia, which gave birth to Al Qaeda, in concert with its puppet masters--the choirboys from the increasingly defunct American CIA; Israeli Mossad; and British MI/6—can exonerate itself for past, present and future crimes committed against the rest of the world. Iran has and will retaliate in kind, if not worse. The world is waking up and realizing that the Saudis are very old news and the country is warped beyond repair.
Having travelled through both countries, I garnered a clearer sense of civility and sobriety in Persia, present day, Iran. I personally witnessed their complete tolerance toward Sunnis, Greek Orthodox Russians, Armenians, Jews, Christians and many other religious sects other than Bahais [unfortunately]. In contrast, Saudi Arabia tolerates no other religion on its soil—neither Christianity nor Judaism [its creator and writer of the Koran].
Geopolitical imperatives had placed Saudi Arabia, and its desert minions in supplicant positions to the great western powers of England and America. However, now that neither power is in need of its sycophant partner, Saudi Arabia has literally been cast to the desert of 40% unemployment; as well as thrown to the mercy of a resource which has been completely depleted—oil.
Now, alone, left on its own, Saudi Arabia has shown a complete lack of understanding of how to arise as a civilized nation in a world that no longer cares about a former faux desert kingdom. It would behoove the rulers of this pathetic country to learn a little bit about Christian charity and forgiveness in this New Year of 2016, if they have the least desire to see the next few years.
My prediction is that Iran will teach SA such a strong lesson that their rulers will think twice before committing another stupid act like this one. As for the rest of the world, let Shi’ites continue to kill Sunnis. That’s just what they do.
I urge both sides to enter combat at full force until there is no more will to fight. Only the complete exhaustion of hate can allow for some new, more constructive remedy in the 21st century.
Allah Be Praised!
