Iran Supreme Leader: Some Regional States Betraying Muslims + VIDEO

Wed May 18, 2016 15:58:21

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says certain Muslim governments have been betraying their people by helping the US implement its policies in the region.

"Some Islamic governments are betraying their people and the Islamic Ummah and paving the way for the American influence," the Leader told participants at an international Qur'an competition in Tehran Wednesday.

"Certain (governments) in the Islamic world, instead of clinging to the Qur'an, are clinging to Taghut," Ayatollah Khamenei said, using the Arabic word for idolatry or the worship of anything except Allah.

"America is the major Taghut and the Great Satan," the Leader added.

"Those who are implementing the American policy in the region are adhering to Taghut and do not have disbelief in Taghut," Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The Leader also said Takfiri terrorists and Wahabbi affiliates are doing the enemy's bidding by "consigning the Palestinian issue to oblivion" through their reign of terror in the Middle East.

"Satanic powers are scared of Islam and the 1.5-billion Muslim community," the Leader said, adding tremendous sums of money is being spent to harm Islam and Muslims but "we have no doubt victory belongs to Islam."

"The enemy is afraid of a powerful and brave Islam," Ayatollah Khamenei said, citing Iran as the main target of attacks because of this fear.

"Resistance against America is the main point of Iran's prowess," the Leader said, adding "neither the enemy's promises deceive us nor its threats frighten us."

"They (enemies) know that the Islamic Republic's stances are influential in the world. We are sincere with Muslim nations and our words and deeds are the same," he added.
