Following are excerpts from an interview with Watheq Al-Battat, secretary-general of Hizbullah of Iraq, which aired on Sharqiya TV (via the Internet) on February 5, 2013.
Interviewer: "Where do you train your soldiers – in Iraq, in South Lebanon, or in Iran?"
Watheq Al-Battat: "We train them wherever necessity takes us. We have built an army, and Allah willing, we shall be praying at the Two Holy Mosques [in Saudi Arabia]."
Interviewer: "I don’t understand. What do you mean by saying that you will be praying at the Two Holy Mosques? Will your army raid the Two Holy Mosques?"
Watheq Al-Battat: "Allah willing, we shall annihilate the infidel, atheist Saudi regime, and all the regimes that wage war against Islam, incite their peoples to wage war against Islam and the Prophet Muhammad, and support Israel and America."
Interviewer: "How will you fight them?"
Watheq Al-Battat: "As I have said, the [Hidden] Imam will soon appear, and along with him, we will march on Saudi Arabia to liberate it."
