Terrorist attack in saudi arabia

75
Information Agency Associated Press reports a terrorist act in saudi arabia. The material states that an attack was made on a Shiite mosque near the city of Makhasin. Immediately, two suicide bombers attempted to enter the mosque’s building, but the guards attempted to check the persons who had caused her suspicion. At that moment, one of the suicide bombers launched an explosive device. The blast killed at least three people, six were injured.


Terrorist attack in saudi arabia


The surviving guards of the mosque opened fire on the second terrorist. He was injured and then captured by the police.

Information agencies report that at the time of the terrorist attack on the Shiite mosque, there was a man named Mohammed an-Nimr. This is the brother of the preacher Nimr al-Nimr, who was executed by the Saudi authorities among those accused of complicity with terrorism. This execution provoked massive anti-Saudi Muslim Shiite speeches in different countries of the world. The most massive protests took place in Iran.
After the attack on the Saudi embassy in Tehran, perpetrated by outraged protesters, Riyadh announced the severance of diplomatic relations with Iran.

For reference: the state religion of Saudi Arabia is Sunni Islam. At the same time, most of the subjects of Saudi Arabia call themselves Salafis. A number of provinces previously isolated by the Saudis from Yemen are inhabited by Shiite Muslims.

    Now, at the place of the attack, they will find the Syrian passport of a native of Damascus - there are just a lot of Shiites living there. Or even a terrorist will be an Iranian citizen. In general, on discretion KSA special services fantasy, but Shiites will definitely be extreme.

        It’s like they tried to blow up a Shiite mosque. Therefore, Iran and the Syrian passport have nothing to do with it. In Iraq, for example, before any Islamic State, Shiites and Sunnis blew up each other in mosques. Or rather the enemy of the enemy. For fanatics, heretics and apostates are the main and worst enemies. And only in second place the crusaders.

        I mean, an exception can be made from any rule.

        And also do not discard propaganda, the organization of the necessary directional consciousness. In particular, Shiite explain that it is EXACTLY in this mosque that the mullah is the wrong Shiite and the wrong Shiites go there. Therefore, they need to be blown up so that all nishtyaks in the next world will get the right Shiites ...

        A suitable explanation is why Shiite Shiite, Russian Russian, etc.? ...

              But in Iran it’s a little different. They have 90% of the Shiite population. This can be seen with the participation of Iran only as a provocation on its part with the aim of starting a war. But what kind of war is Iran now? In general, Iran has nothing to do with it. These are local religious cleansings. Since you remembered Germany, it’s closer to the Jewish pogroms.

          Sergei welcome! about historical memory. Five were accused of arson of the Reichstag: Van der Lubbe, Ernst Torgler, Dimitrov Georgy, Vasil Panev and Blagoy Popov. The Dutchman, the German and three Bulgarians. The Germans and Bulgarians were acquitted because of the alibi (the German was at a restaurant in another the end of Berlin, And the Bulgarians were not in Berlin at all, they were in München. The Dutchman admitted to arson and was beheaded.

            Of course of course...
            On February 27, a fire broke out, and on February 28 an extraordinary decree of the Reich President “On the protection of the people and the state” was published, abolishing the freedom of the individual, assembly, union, speech, press and limiting the secrecy of correspondence and the inviolability of private property. The Communist Party of Germany was banned. Within a few days, about four thousand communists and many leaders of liberal and social democratic groups, including deputies of the Reichstag, were arrested. The closure of opposition newspapers (the communist “Rote Fan” was closed before the arson) made it possible to successfully complete the election campaign.
            And after that, anyway, who of what nationality was sitting in the dock, who was convicted or acquitted, the main thing is achieved - the political opponents are removed.
            By the way, it looks like the story of a Malaysian plane, no one has yet proven anything, but the perpetrators have already been appointed ...
            So, I completely admit the similarity of tactics in this case. Otherwise, there would be no reason for the police to arrest the second attacker alive, usually the dead do not talk.

    What a strange attack. Very targeted - one was executed, the second - they were afraid. The attack was muddied. Oh, the Saudis will set fire to the ground under their feet. They are very combustible, both literally and figuratively.

    Autumn, this attack looks interesting, in light of the fact that Yemeni rebels with the army captured three Saudi bases in the territory of Sa. In my opinion, sa is already burning both from the outside and from the outside.

    Guys! I don’t know, when in Russia a series of terrorist attacks in the 90s swept, then the number of victims went to "tens"! The performers, which has been proven, are Muslims! (Nothing personal, but, nevertheless ...!) Here, too, of course, I feel sorry for people, but why: two or three victims, four or five wounded! Here, either the "charges" are not the same .. Or, the goal is different ?! recourse Middle Eastern courage ?!

    But really what ??? Elementary struggle for power. From Ineta
    The reason for the emergence of two Muslim camps was, however prosaic, not differences in belief, but political motives, namely the struggle for power.
    The thing is that after the reign of the last of the four caliphs Ali, the question arose of who will take his place.
    Some believed that at the head of the caliphate can only be a direct descendant of the Prophet, who will inherit not only power, but also all his spiritual qualities, will honor traditions and become a worthy follower of his ancestors. They were called Shiites, which in Arabic means "Ali power." More details: http://thedifference.ru/otlichie-shiitov-ot-sunnitov/

    So how is it???? Like, Ivan Sergeyevich quarreled with Pavel Sergeyevich and now his children are arranging for the whole world Kuzkin's mother. So how is it?????

      namely, the struggle for power.

      There are also ethnic differences. After the capture of Persepolis by the troops of the invincible A.F. Macedonian and its subsequent plundering and burning, the Persians did not go anywhere, they simply recognized A.F.M. new king-kings. The Persians practiced Zoroastrianism, an almost monotheistic religion. Therefore, when the victorious troops of the warriors of Islam / strict monotheism / came to them, Islam was easily accepted by the Persians, who else would like to pay jizya? The easiest way for the heirs of the ancient culture to isolate themselves from the conquerors / camel drivers / was by adopting one of the currents in Islam, namely "Shiyat Ali", which arose after the death of the fourth imam.

    In Arabia, this is the way Shiites produce oil and rule and enjoy the benefits of the Sunnis. Who knows Islam knows that the cornerstone of the entire Islamic worldview is the issue of social justice. Mohamed was the founder of real socialism, he was the first to raise the question of the fair distribution of surplus value and definition of the sinfulness of loan interest. Thus, the Shiites in their struggle can be represented as the proletariat, and the Sunites as the bourgeoisie, in short this is the classic class struggle.

      ......... "Anyone familiar with Islam knows that the cornerstone of the entire Islamic worldview is the question of social justice. Mohamed was the founder of the construction of real socialism, he was the first to raise the question of the fair distribution of surplus value and the definition of the sinfulness of loan interest." .......
      ABALDET !!! I envy your knowledge of Islam! As if I re-read one of the works of Karl Marx.
      .... "Muslims split into Sunnis and Shiites for political reasons. In the second half of the XNUMXth century, after the end of the rule of Caliph Ali in the Arab Caliphate, disputes arose over who would take his place. The fact is that Ali was the son-in-law of the Prophet Muhammad, and some Muslims believed that power should be passed on to his descendants. This part began to be called "Shiites", which in Arabic means "the power of Ali." While other followers of Islam questioned the exclusive privilege of this kind and offered the majority of Muslims communities to choose another candidate from the descendants of Muhammad, explaining their position with excerpts from the Sunnah - the second source of Islamic law after the Koran, which is why they began to be called "Sunnis" ...
      What are the differences in the interpretation of Islam between Sunnis and Shiites?

      ..... "The Sunnis only recognize the Prophet Muhammad, while the Shiites equally revere both Muhammad and his cousin Ali.
      Sunnis and Shiites in different ways choose the highest power. For Sunnis, it belongs to elected or appointed clergy, and for Shiites, the representative of the highest authority should be exclusively from the Ali clan.
      Imam. For Sunnis, this is a cleric who runs a mosque. For Shiites, this is a spiritual leader and a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad.
      Sunnis study the entire text of the Sunna, and Shiites only the part of it that tells about Muhammad and his family members.
      Shiites believe that one day the Messiah will come in the person of the 'hidden imam'. "...

    Here you are "confused" by the Saudis and Persians. Interestingly, somewhere in Italy or Ireland, men are also so intently worried about the countries of the devil where, or are they thinking how to lift up some kind of skirt ??)))
