Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Israel is looking to create a more chaotic situation in the Middle East, and called on the regional countries to become united and maintain their vigilance in a bid to foil the plots hatched by Tel Aviv.
“Zionists want Turkey, Libya, Egypt and other regional countries to always be in a volatile situation; so given such behavior, we should extend the hand of brotherhood to one another more than ever,” Ahmadinejad said, addressing a meeting with Iraqi Parliament Speaker Osama al Nujaifi and the country’s lawmakers on Thursday.
He noted that certain enemies, specially Israel, are happy to see some of regional countries to be gripped in turmoil “because they do not want these states countries to be powerful and make progress.”
In relevant remarks in August 2012, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with Indonesian Vice-President Boediono in Tehran warned of the plots hatched by certain powers to stir religious and sectarian strife in Muslim nations.
During the meeting held on the sidelines of the 16th heads-of-state summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) here in Tehran at the time, the Supreme Leader cautioned against the dangerous attempts made to sow discord and stir clashes between different religious sects in the Muslim nations, specially between the Shiite and Sunni Muslims, and said, “These actions are carried out through the support of certain powers and by means of their hirelings, whose instances can be seen in Afghanistan and Pakistan now.”
“The Al-Qaeda and the Taliban were created with the support of the US allies in the region, while the US is bombing countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan under the pretext of fighting them,” said the Leader, and added, “But their main goal is hegemony over these countries.”
He further warned the Indonesian official to take precautions about such dangerous plots against Muslims in Indonesia, Egypt and Libya, and underlined the necessity of increased cooperation among Islamic states.
