Palestinian Sunni cleric: Palestinians following Imam Khomeini (RA)
Palestinian Sunni elite stressed resistance against oppression as the main issue for the late founder of Islamic Revolution saying that Palestinian nation followed Imam Khomeini (RA) in confrontation with the US and Zionist regime.
Sheikh Abdullah Katamtu, Head of the Iran-Palestine Friendship Society in an interview with Iran’s RASA News Agency praised Imam Khomeini (RA) for sympathizing with the oppressed and that the late leader of the Islamic Revolution pursued human liberty based on the holy Qur’an and lifestyle of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
He said,” Awakening of the people and resisting against the oppressions of the US were among the main concerns of Imam Khomeini (RA) and the Palestinian nation has learnt how to stand against the US and Zionist regime from Imam Khomeini (RA).”
He also referred to the view of Imam Khomeini (RA) on the American Islam and said,” American Islam is to stand by the oppressors and supporting their criminal interests.”
Prayer leader of AlWasim Mosque in Damascus also quoted Imam Khomeini (RA) calling the US as devil and said,” Late Imam Khomeini (RA) had found the truest description for the US because this devil is in pursuit of ruining the rights of other people and intends to introduce the nations as enemies for each other.”
He called the present Islam followed in some Arab countries as the American Islam and stressed,” An unidentified Islam is a type of the American Islam which stands opposite to the true Islam of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).”
The cleric highlighted the necessity of maintaining Islamic solidarity and said,” Boosting Islamic unity against the measures of the enemies and world terrorism has to be set as another mission for the world Muslims.”
Sheikh Abdullah Katamu hailed the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei as the best substitute for late Imam Khomeini (RA) and referring to the increasing developments made in the Islamic Republic of Iran said,” Imam Khamenei has taught us to be determined and strong,” adding,” The Supreme Leader has always stressed importance of standing against the enemies and accompanying the friends.”
Sunni cleric expressed his gratitude for the support of the Islamic Revolution for Palestine and said,” The late founder of the Islamic Revolution has started his support for Palestine since the beginning days after the victory of the Islamic Revolution and has proved true fraternity to us.”
