Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili warned that enemies of the Muslim nations are exercising plots to reduce the current pressures on the Zionist regime of Israel through stirring rifts among Muslims.
“One of the plots against the Islamic world included their (enemies’) attempts to create internal conflicts in the Muslim world so as to reduce today’s pressure against Israel,” Jalili told reporters in a press conference in the Syrian capital city of Damascus on Monday.
“Israel and its allies are seeking to divert the energy which has been formed around the (anti-Israel) resistance front from Israel towards internal rifts among Muslims,” Jalili said, and called on Muslims to avoid sectarian and ethnic strife.
The senior Iranian security officials further said that the Islamic Awakening movement in the region has prepared a proper opportunity for unity in the Muslim World, and urged Islamic nations to take this opportunity to increase unity and solidarity against enemies of Islam.
Last Tuesday, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned Muslim nations about the plots hatched by enemies to sow discord in the Islamic community.
Addressing a group of Iranian officials and the foreign participants of the 26th International Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran, Ayatollah Khamenei felicitated birthday of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and stated that unity among the Islamic community was the main mission of the Holy Prophet.
The Leader pointed to the wave of the Islamic awakening in the Muslim World, and reiterated that the world arrogance targeted the Islamic Awakening movements and aims to divide the Muslims pitting them against each other.
“Therefore, the main duty of the elites in the Muslim world is to help expose the enemies’ plots and take serious efforts to materialize the motto of Islamic unity,” the Leader underlined.
