Iran and Hizbullah on executions

I have written this in Arabic: Iran and Hizbullah are in a weak position on the matter of mass executions in Saudi Arabia: 1) as sectarian parties, they seem to express outrage when the victims (outside of Palestine) are Shi`ites.  Why not express outrage at the victims of the regimes when they are Sunnis? 2) They are too pragmatic: they attack Saudi regime one day and then seek a rapprochement the next day. 3) Iranian regime also applies executions by hanging and it also does not have a fair and unbiased judiciary.  4) Shaykh An-Nimr was more consistent than they are in condemning tyranny wherever it is.
