Tehran’s Interim Friday Prayers Leader, Hojjatol-Islam Kazem Sedighi, has condemned the European Union’s recent blacklisting of the Lebanese Islamic resistance movement, Hezbollah.
Addressing a huge crowd of Friday prayers worshippers and the faithful in Tehran, Hojjatol-Islam Kazem Sedighi said the European Union’s blacklisting of the military wing of the Lebanese Islamic resistance movement, Hezbollah, is a shameful act which should be condemned forthrightly.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Hojjatol-Islam Kazem Sedighi described the new EU move against Hezbollah as “illegal and immoral”, and said this will only result in a disgrace for the EU and will not harm Hezbollah in any way.
Tehran’s Interim Friday Prayers Leader described EU’s actions as “biased and unfair”, and stressed that whilst the Zionist regime is so clearly a terrorist entity and a sponsor of terrorism, it is absolutely disgraceful to blacklist Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
In further remarks, Tehran’s Interim Friday Prayers Leader said Hezbollah has forever shattered the “invincibility myth of the Zionist regime’s army”, and has shown the entire world that the fake Zionist regime has been shaken to its core and is collapsing.
Referring to EU’s decision to take the name of MKO terrorist group off EU’s official list of terrorist organizations, Hojjatol-Islam Kazem Sedighi pointedly added: “Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement is a defensive organization which has worked tirelessly for progress and independence of Lebanon”.
Turning to the deplorable situation in Egypt, Hojjatol-Islam Kazem Sedighi said events in Syria are a lesson for the people of Egypt. He added: “The Americans and the Zionists started the war in Syria, in order to weaken the Islamic resistance movement in Syria, and now they are turning their attention to Egypt”.
Hojjatol-Islam Kazem Sedighi went on to urge Egyptian intellectuals, ulama (or religious scholars), writers, and prominent personalities in Egypt to work hard to bring to full fruition the Egyptian people’s revolution. He said recent developments in Egypt are the work of the Americans and the Zionists.
Hojjatol-Islam Kazem Sedighi also strongly condemned violence and bloodshed in Egypt, and stressed that Egyptian Muslims are not responsible for initiating violence in the country.
