RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in the Iraqi holy city of Najaf’s al-Fatimiyah al-Kubra Husayniyah, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Sadruddin al-Qubanchi stated that the death penalty for the seventeen Saudi terrorists must be enforced and said, “The Iraqi government is under pressure from Saudi officials to release these terrorists. The government must demonstrate that it doesn’t kowtow to Saudi pressure by executing these terrorists.”
The Iraqi Shi’ah scholar called for France to apologize to the people of Iraq and the families of the martyrs and stated, “The members affiliated with the Daesh terrorist group who are French nationals must also be executed without any consideration.”
An Iraqi court has sentenced to death the last two French nationals on trial in the Arab country for joining Daesh and involvement in acts of terror.
In another part of his Friday prayer sermon, Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi referred to the attacks on two oil tankers in the Sea of Oman and said, “The accused in the first row of this incident is the Zionist occupying regime, because it’s the only country which benefits from these kinds of incidents. We condemn the incident that occurred at the same time as the Japanese Prime Minister [Shinzō Abe] was visiting Iran. This kind of incident isn’t in the interests of the region because no party wants war.”
Referring to Iran’s position against the message of the President of the United States, Donald Trump, His Eminence said, “The decline and humiliation of the United States against the Iranian people is due to the culture inspired by Imam Ali and Imam al-Husayn who never surrendered to the enemies.”
He responded to a conference scheduled to take place this month on the subject of the so-called “Deal of the Century” in Bahrain and said, “Iraq has refused to attend the conference because participation in it implies its officially recognition of the Zionist occupying regime.”
Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi said that the attacks by Yemen’s Houthis on Saudi airports were an integral part of defending themselves and added, “While Yemen has defended itself, the world has been silent for the past five years despite the invasion of Yemen. The Saudi regime must stop its attacks as soon as possible.”
