Iran’s Supreme Leader cautions Muslims against enemies' plots
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has warned against the conspiracies of the global hegemonic powers to divert the tide of Islamic Awakening, PressTV reported.
In his annual message to 2012 Hajj Pilgrims on Thursday, the Leader lauded the popular uprisings and revolutions across the Arab countries as "one of the most crucial issues of the Muslim world".
"If Muslims let go this great opportunity without using it to reform the Islamic Ummah, they would incur great losses," he added.
"The aggressive and interventionist arrogant powers are making every effort to divert the course of these significant Islamic movements," Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out.
The Leader described the Muslims' struggles against the despotism of the rulers and American dominance, support for "the oppressed Palestinian nation" and the urge for solidarity among the Islamic Ummah as the top aspirations of the tide of Islamic Awakening.
"These are the basic foundations of the popular uprisings in countries which raised the banner of freedom and reform in the past two years and the people, with their body and soul, flooded the squares of the revolution. These are the things which reinforce the foundations of reform within the Islamic Ummah," the message said.
"Standing firm by these basic principles is the necessary condition for the ultimate victory of the popular uprisings in these countries," the Leader pointed out.
Ayatollah Khamenei warned that the enemy seeks "to rock these foundations".
"By exploiting inattention and shallow-mindedness on behalf of some, corrupt American, NATO and Zionist agents are trying to divert the deluge-like movement of the Muslim youth and bring them into confrontation with one another in the name of Islam," he added.
