Prince Nayef: Saudi Shiites should be hunted!

A prominent Arab journalist residing in London told the Arab Digest the following story:

I met Prince Nayef, the Saudi interior minister and Crown Prince, in Saudi Arabia. He asked me about the current rhetoric in the West about Saudi Arabia; after he insisted, I told him about the call for equality between the Kingdom's Sunni and Shiite citizens. He replied angrily that "Shiites should be thankful that we let them live here. Islamic jurisdiction orders us to hunt them down". 

We have reported earlier on Saudi Arabia's Shiites' revolting in the oil rich Eastern region, here is a video of the Awamieh protest where they burn and step on photos of the royal family:

Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy. Shiites are considered heretics and are denied basic human rights. The United States refuses to endorse their demands due to its strategic partnership with Saudi Arabia, and animosity with Iran, the major Shiite power in the world.

 Prince Nayef, pictured above, is known to be a hardliner and close to the religious establishment in Saudi Arabia.
