Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr Shia cleric executed by Saudis

Iran supreme leader says Saudi faces ‘divine revenge’

Iran’s supreme leader said on Sunday that Saudi Arabia will face “divine revenge” for executing a top Shia cleric whose death sparked protests in which the kingdom’s embassy in Tehran was firebombed.

“The unjustly spilled blood of this oppressed martyr will no doubt soon show its effect and divine vengeance will befall Saudi politicians,” state TV reported Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as saying. It said he described the execution as a “political error”.

    ‘Divine Revenge’ a/k/a multiple suicide bombers.

    • Great idea. Lots of dead Muslims.

        Can’t argue with that, as it never gets old. They’ve been at it for over a thousand years already. 😉

  • If the Iranians and the Saudis just act like regular old Muslims this thing could get out of hand real fast.

    Imagine what would happen if their militaries got involved.

    The Persian Gulf oil industry could take a big hit – so to speak.

      Good for Canada if it does.

    Keep the problem contained at its source. Otherwise, take a lesson from Japan…

    “Divine Revenge”. Well this should be fun, will it be televised? Can we watch it on the big screen? Christ, I can hardly wait.

    Poor guy was oppressed AND beheaded.

    I predict Iran will ‘suddenly’ announce a nuclear breakout. Followed by Saudi Arabia announcing their own nuclear capacity.

    • Shebel

      So what? You already know this is true. Big deal.

      You stop it now or have a ‘Cold War’ in the Mid East.

      • Hard Little Machine

        I don’t care either way. The purpose of atomic weapons is not to use them it’s to not use them. Iran will threaten Europe with atomic weapons whenever it wants something. Let’s say Iran decides that the Straits of Hormuz is theirs. Choke it off by moving missiles into position to target Europe. Case closed. Oil goes up to $100 a gallon. Awesome.

            It has already been said on numerous stations like Al Jazeera, RT and other stations that if Iran is to be attacked by Saudi Arabia that Russia would attack Saudi Arabia. The truth is the Middle East is become more Iran-focused and centric. There is no escaping that with the rise of BRICS.

          For me—- I would never ,ever let them go nuclear .
          but— there is a Muslim in the Whitehouse and he doesn’t exactly like the Jews.

            Hillary is a best, no better and probably worse. And let’s face facts America is never ever ever ever ever ever ever going to elect Bernie or any other nominal Jew from Brooklyn. He could be a gay illegal Mexican ex al Qaeda terrorist and have better odds.

            People use religion for tradition nowadays and it is for show rather than actually following the true teachings of Jesus which is to love your neighbour. People should just come out and be honest, especially the Christians, Muslims and Jews that they never really had a religion because many are following the God of the marketplace.

    The prediction from around four years ago that Israel will be “the last man standing” in the Middle East is coming closer to fruition.
