TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei stressed that the entire Islamic society must defend the Lebanese Hezbollah.
“Some Muslim governments have kept silent to show their considerateness for the US and arrogant powers, but they must know that the United States would never feel considerate towards them,” the leader said in a meeting with a group of people, families of the martyrs and Sunni theologians who have come from the different parts of the country to congratulate him on the birthday anniversary of Imam Ali (PBUH), the first Imam of the Shiites.
Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the present tragedy in Lebanon and Palestine and the mass killing of the innocent people, including children, by the Zionist regime and reminded, “The hardship the Lebanese people are afflicted with today might happen to any other Muslim country in future. The Islamic Ummah (nation) must be careful that the world powers may never care for their interest. Therefore, they must increase their power and solidarity in a bid to safeguard their entity.”
He further censured the encouraging words and behavior of the US, England and some other powers in the face of the crimes of the Zionist regime and the inaction and inability of the United Nations who alleges to be a supporter and protector of human rights, civilization and campaign against terrorism.
The leader said, “Along the previous catastrophe, there is another bitter phenomenon we are experiencing today, and that’s the separation and discord among the Islamic governments, specially those who are just watching the status quo. This kind of behavior is truly wrong and detrimental.”
Stressing that the entire Islamic society must defend the Lebanese Hezbollah, he reminded that some Muslim governments have kept silent to show their considerateness for the US and arrogant powers, but must know that the United States would never feel considerate towards them.
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution warned that sowing discord among the Muslim Shiites and Sunnites has been an instrument at the hand of the enemies who intend to defeat the Muslims in such a way, and reiterated, “Discord is a lethal poison for the world of Islam and any kind of measure which causes discord among Muslims is a betrayal to the Islamic world.”
He said that the Islamic Republic of Iran has displayed that it’s stances on the different issues of the world of Islam, including Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon and Afghanistan, are equally solid and strong, and further explained, “The United States, cooperated by the Zionists and some devilish European states, such as England, are trying to uproot Islam from this region, because Islam has always stood up to their illegitimate desires.”
He also said that after the formation and establishment of the Islamic ruling system in Iran, Islamic sentiments, inclination towards Jihad (religious defense) on the path of Islam and Islamic identity and glory have all come back to life.
Ayatollah Khamenei described the ceaseless efforts of the Lebanese people and Hezbollah as an instance of Islamic resistance and the livelihood of Islamic glory and honor, underlining that the army of the Zionist regime was once well known as an invincible army which could defeat three Arab armies in a period of just 6 days, “but now after around one month that it has utilized all its US-assisted military capabilities, it has not succeed in gaining superiority over Hezbollah and has sustained frequent losses and defeats.”
