Over four decades ago the Father of the Islamic Revolution had appealed to the heads of state of Muslim countries to close their ranks by adhering to the Divine injunctions in the Holy Qur’an and diligently following the practical path of unity as shown by Prophet Muhammad (SAWA).
Imam Khomeini (RA) had said: “O Muslims, followers of the school of Towhid! The ultimate reason for all the troubles that afflict the Muslim countries are their differences, disunity and lack of harmony, and the secret of future victory will lie in unity and the creation of harmony.”
Unfortunately, the political leaders not just ignored the wise words of that Sage of the Age, but allowed the sworn enemies of Islam and Muslims to tighten the yokes around their necks.
This is the reason that the illegal Zionist entity continues its genocide of the Palestinians, and although its dream of domination from the River Nile in Egypt to the River Euphrates in Iraq has long turned into a nightmare, thanks to the power and prestige of the Islamic Republic of Iran, it is still utilizing the naivety of certain regimes to spread its poisonous tentacles, especially in the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf.
Yesterday, in his address to ulema and scholars of world countries assembled in Tehran for the 37th International Islamic Unity Conference the Leader of the Islamic Revolution presented the same formula of Islamic solidarity by saying:
“If we all become united and Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and the Persian Gulf countries adopt a single policy in fundamental and general issues, the oppressive powers cannot and will not dare interfere in our internal affairs and our foreign policies.”
He rebuked the regimes seeking to normalize relations with Usurper Israel, stating that “the Zionist regime is perishable.”
Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei added: “The Islamic Republic’s definite position is that the governments that use the normalization gamble with the Zionist regime will lose and the loss awaits them.”
He called such an attitude as “betting on a losing horse” – as they say in the western culture – and cautioned them against repeating the same mistake of the past, since the Zionist entity is not in a situation as to encourage closeness and countries with it, especially in view of the fact “The Palestinian movement is more cheerful than ever in the past seventy and eighty years, and the Palestinian youth and the anti-usurpation, anti-oppression and anti-Zionism movement are more cheerful, more lively, and more ready than ever, as you can see.”
The Leader was confident that “this movement will come to fruition and as the late honourable Imam [Khomeini] described the usurper regime as a cancer, God willing, this cancer will be eradicated at the hands of the Palestinian people and the resistance forces in the entire region.”
Wonder, how many leaders of Muslim countries will heed this timely warning of Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei to realize the fact that Israel does not only hate Iran, Palestinians, and the people of Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Yemen, but is also full of hatred towards, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, the UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the rest of the Muslim countries.
