Zionist plots aim at keeping Muslims negligent of Israel
Ayatollah Arafi said that the Zionist entity should know that the Islamic ummah is aware of all their plots against Muslims. These plots attempt to turn the Islamic world away from civilization and keep them negligent of Israel.
Ayatollah Ali-Reza Arafi referred to the Zionist aggression against Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque over the last week, saying the Zionist usurper has violated the sanctities of Islam and the al-Aqsa Mosque, and said the offensive onslaught and continuous violence by this “false” regime has brought “pain to the hearts of all Muslims.”
His Eminence explained that the Takfiri phenomenon was created to isolate the Islamic Resistance and the Islamic Revolution and said that despite all the conspiracies of the Zionist leaders against the Iranian nation, the Islamic nation is alert and enlightened and added that the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, has said that Iran will support the Islamic Resistance in any conditions and will stand against the enemies of Islam, reported Rasa.
“It is for this reason that our nation’s slogan of ‘Death to Israel’ is still heard,” he said.
Ayatollah Arafi said that the Zionist entity should know that the Islamic ummah is aware of all their plots against Muslims. With these plots, the Zionists seek to turn the Islamic world away from civilization and keep them negligent of the crimes Israel is committing in Palestine.
“Israel launched the Takfiri phenomenon to keep Muslims busy so they cannot fight against them,” he said.
8-year Iran-Iraq war disproportionate in all aspects
The president of al-Mustafa International University on the occasion of the upcoming Holy Defense Week in Iran honoured the memory of the martyrs of the eight-year long Iran-Iraq War and added that the war was disproportionate in all aspects – arms, logistical and propaganda wise.
He noted that this “imposed war” was a reminder of the tragedy of Ashura and Imam Husayn’s disproportionate war against Yazid.
He explained that the Iran-Iraq War was one of the longest wars in the 20th century and its battlefield was also one of the largest, and added that during the “War of Sacred Defence” the most dangerous and the most advanced weapons were used, including chemical weapons.
“Those who threaten Iran with ‘all options on the table’ today must know that the Iranian nation came out of this war with honour,” he said.
Qom’s Friday prayers’ leader said that the same people who make false claims today, helped the Iran’s enemies during this war against the Islamic Revolution, which had national, revolutionary, Islamic and international dimensions. He added that the Iranian people, especially the youth, must believe in themselves and not forget the honour and sacrifices made during the Sacred Defence.
Ayatollah Arafi stated that the unique leadership of Imam Khomeini and the unparalleled role of the Iranian youth in the war led to the victory of the cause of the Islamic Republic and added that the enemies were not able to achieve any of their goals to bring about Iran’s collapse and division despite the immense devastation the war brought to Iran.
He said that after the war, the Islamic Revolution was able to achieve its goals and put Iran on the path toward growth and development. The waves of the Islamic Resistance resonated all over the world. This war also showed the weak will of the hypocrites and their defeat was due to the power of Islam and the Islamic Revolution.
Ayatollah Arafi stressed that Iranians shouldn’t fear the threats of the foreign and arrogant powers. The Iranian authorities must take the country forward based on reason, logic and resistance. He added that the rise of the Islamic resistance groups and advances in knowledge, especially in nuclear energy, are among the blessings of the war, which we owe to the martyrs.
