‘Saudi Arabia on verge of collapse’

TEHRAN, Jan. 02 (MNA) – An Iranian parliamentarian has maintained that Saudi Arabia has executed Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr on behalf of the Zionist regime, noting that the act is a sign of Saudi's collapse.

Seyyed Hossein Naghavi Hosseini, Spokesman for the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, referred to the execution of Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr by Saudi Arabia; “we condemn the crime of Saudi regime which was much worse than ISIL’s misconduct,” he stressed.

Naghavi Hosseini deemed the action as inhuman, undemocratic and medieval adding “we believe that such an action will open the path for issuance of similar verdicts on scholars of the Islamic world.”

“The killing of Sheikh al-Nimr along with a number of his followers by Saudi Arabia is analogous to the crimes of the Zionist regime and it seems that Saudi Arabia committed the crime on behalf of Israel," added he.

These hasty measures indicate the successive failures of Saudis in pursuing interventionist policies in Yemen, Syria and Iraq.

“Saudi empire takes such criminal steps due to being on the verge of collapse,” said Naghavi Hosseini maintaining “the Muslim world will react to Saudis who are becoming increasingly isolate.”

Accordinly, Tehran interim Friday Prayers Leader and a senior member of the Assembly of Experts Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami has said “the crime of executing of Sheikh al-Nimr marks only one link in a chain of crimes and that Al Saud will eventually get wiped out.”

Touching upon the the purpose of Saudis in killing Sheikh al-Nimr, Khatami said “the al-Saud family have been committing savage crimes since their emergence and the crimes in Yemen will remain in the history of the world as a sign of eternal shame for the Saudi regime.”

Khatami called for the Islamic world and Iran’s diplomacy to react to the scandalous crime and take a proper position with regard to the incident.

Brigadier General Rasoul Sanaei-Rad, Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) for Political Affairs has also deemed the brutal action as a sign of Saudi Arabia’s weakness; “the Iranian government needs to take a firm diplomatic stand against the inhuman action.”

Sanaei-Rad further referred to the attack of Saudis on Yemen asserting “brutal slaughter of Yemeni people also represents the weakness of Al Saud regime which they tried to conceal in a hasty and nervous manner."
