EXECUTED SAUDI SHIITE CLERIC AL-NIMR BACKED TERROR ATTACKS ON AMERICA
The Saudi justice system is cruel and barbaric. But occasionally they get one right
The Saudi justice system is cruel and barbaric. But occasionally they get one right.
The media is scuttling to turn Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, a Shiite leader so great they named him twice, into a martyr after the Saudis put him down on terror charges. But Nimr al-Nimr was a terror leader. There are no shortage of quotes from him endorsing terrorism, backing Iran and calling for Iranian intervention in Saudi Arabia.
And yes, he hated America too.
Sheikh al-Nimr also made various anti-American references, claiming that America “wants to humiliate the world.” In the case of America striking Iran, al-Nimr stated that “Iran has the right to close the Straits of Hormuz, to destroy the Zionist enemy, and to strike at American bases and American interests anywhere.”
Nimr was an agent of Iran. We, these days, have no ability to execute traitors. The Saudis do.
Saudi Arabia is full of Sunnis who say most of the same thing. Nimr got it because he was a Shiite and backed Iran. We don’t actually have a dog in this fight, but we can say good riddance to another enemy. The media has tried to turn Nimr and his relative Ali Mohammed al-Nimr into martyrs. But let’s remember how their Iranian bosses treated protesters during the Green Revolution.
