Speaking during his class at Qom’s Grand Mosque, Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem-Shirazi referred to Saudi Arabia’s criminal war against Yemen and said that dirhams and dinars are idols which are a means by which Saudi Arabia purchases and persuades all international organizations in any manner that they want, Taqrib News Agency (TNA) quoted Rasa as saying.
“The Saudis have trampled over all divine laws and morals and have created wars in Yemen and other countries,” he added.
The revered source of emulation said that Yemen is the scene of all the tests in the world and said that the “senseless” Saudi government has been killing people, destroy and bombing Yemen for the past nineteen month. “I wish others were at least silent, but unfortunately they have assisted Saudi Arabia,” he said.
Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi said one of the British newspapers has criticized the government of the United Kingdom for selling the Saudi government more than two billion dollars in weapons and published the figures and numbers of people killed and displaced in the Saudi war on Yemen.
“It is unfortunate that in addition to not expressing sympathy for those killed in Yemen, such governments do not follow the principles of human rights but rather they assist the violators of human rights,” he said.
His Eminence said that a British journalist said if the United Kingdom doesn’t sell weapons to Saudi Arabia, others. “The army of ibn Ziyad said that ‘if we don’t steal the earrings from [Sukaynah] the daughter of Imam Husayn, someone else will.’ This is Yazidi culture which is being revived,” he said.
He pointed to the lack of emotion in the world today and said, “When a government sells weapons worth two billion dollars in order to murder men, women and children, it is clear that human emotions and morality is dead.”
In other remarks, Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi referred to the presidential election in the United States said that these two people who have both confessed to corruption, lying, immorality and a history of abuse and want to be at the helm of the world. “Woe to a world where such people want to rule over it,” he said.
He said when there is no religion, emotion cannot be expected so when the world doesn’t adhere to the teachings of the prophets, such a situation occurs and corrupt, ruthless and money-minded people rule the world. “They constantly arm senseless governments until they turn Yemen into ruins. Our question is whether they want to rule over the ruins,” he said.
