IS-filialen i Saudi-Arabia har utstedt en oppfordring om å drepe shiaer  og rense Den arabiske halvøy for dem.

Det er en krigserklæring som må tas på største alvor. Selvmordsbombere har sprengt seg i og ved to shia-moskeer i den østlige provinsen hvor det bor flest shiaer.

IS ønsker en sekterisk krig mellom sunnier og shiaer. Hvilken respons kan de forvente? Teologien i Saudi-Arabia er også sterkt negativ til shiaer. De har gjødslet den marken som IS kan høste av.

Krigen mot houti-militsen i Jemen bidrar også til en shia-fiendtlig stemning.

A Saudi branch of «Islamic State» has urged the kingdom’s youth to join its cause of clearing the region of Shiites. The Sunni militant group has carried out two attacks on Shiite mosques in Saudi Arabia this month.

According to the US-based SITE monitoring group, an IS-affiliated group in Saudi Arabia has defended attacks on Shiite Muslims in a 13-minute long audio message, which it posted online late Friday.

The so-called Najd Province group said in the message that Shiites should be «killed everywhere.»

The IS «has ordered its soldiers everywhere to kill the enemies of religion, especially the Rafidha (Shiites),» a group spokesman is heard saying in the audio.

«They are disbelievers and apostates, and their blood is permissible to be shed, and their money is permissible to be taken. It is a duty upon us to kill them … and even to purify the land from their faith,» the message continued.

The Sunni militant group IS, which has taken over vast swathes of territories in Syria and Iraq, claimed responsibility for two separate suicide bombings on Shiite mosques in eastern Saudi Arabia on May 22 and May 29, which killed 25 people in total. The majority of the Sunni-dominated kingdom’s Shiite population lives mostly in the eastern parts of the country.
