Deputy Secretary-General of the Iraqi Hizbullah Al-Nujaba Movement, Sheikh Yusouf Al-Nasseri, discussed recent statements attributed to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and said that anyone who denies the doctrine of the Mahdi "is an impure heretic who should be killed." Speaking to Afaq TV on April 7, Sheikh Nasseri accused the Saudi rulers of placing a sniper in Mecca whose job is to kill the Mahdi upon his arrival. He said that another sniper was placed near the Israeli city of Lod, where, according to Islamic tradition, the Dajjal – or Antichrist – would be killed at the end of time.

Sheikh Yusouf Al-Nasseri: "Anyone who denies the doctrine [of the Mahdi] denies a religious imperative, and therefore, he is an impure heretic, who should be killed. That man [Muhammad bin Salman] might not be a Muslim, because, as we all know, the Saud clan, which was placed on the throne by British intelligence, are of Jewish origin, and they are full of hatred toward the Prophet Muhammad. Today, they propose moving the body of the Prophet Muhammad, or to wipe out his grave.


"Many people don't understand how Obama, who opposes the existence of Israel, led policies in support of Israel. Let me explain this. Are people aware that the White House believes, to the point of absolute certainty, in the stories about the appearance of the Savior at the end of time? They believe that supporting the plundering entity of Israel paves the way for the arrival of the Savior at the end of time. They do not believe in Israel as a just state worthy of existence.


"Following the incident in Mecca in 1979, they placed a sniper... See how stupid and naïve the Wahhabis are. They placed a sniper in a room at the top of King Fahd's palace, with the black stone of the Kaaba directly in his sights. They believe that if the true Mahdi arrives, they will shoot and kill him. They did the same at the gate of Lod in Palestine. They are waiting for the Messiah so that they can kill him."
