SHAFAQNA – “The Zionists are trying to use the chaos created by the Takfiri phenomenon throughout the Middle East to divide the al-Aqsa Mosque between Muslims and Jews but they were met with resistance and now, a third intifada has begun,” Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Bushehri said.
During his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in Qom, Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Bushehri said that the Zionists are trying to use the chaos created by the Takfiri phenomenon throughout the Middle East to divide the al-Aqsa Mosque between Muslims and Jews but they were met with resistance and now, a third intifada has begun.
“By the grace of God, the Zionists will be defeated,” he said.
He expressed his appreciation for the establishment of a coalition made up of Russia, Iran, Syria and Iraq, saying that when the Western coalition against ISIL was formed, instead of attacking the Takfiris they put weapons at their disposal.
Qom’s Friday prayers’ leader said that now that the JCPOA has been approved, the government and the parliament should insist on the lifting of sanctions. He also called on the authorities to “prevent the enemies’ ability to influence us nor should they allow the United States to find a way to have political, economic, social and cultural influence in Iran.”
Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Bushehri emphasized that the US has taken the most hostile stance towards the Iranian nation and said that as long as the US maintains its arrogant stance toward Iran, Iran will not have relations with them. “The people are aware and the officials must also be aware so that the US cannot realizes that they cannot influence Iran,” he said.
His Eminence also refered to the tragic incident in Mina saying this tragedy which overwhelmed the Hajj pilgrimage is only one side of the story and the carelessness of the House of Saudi over handing over the bodies to their respective countries of the pilgrims is another issue.
“Some of the bodies were buried in Saudi Arabia and some others were returned to their countries,” the Iranian scholar stated.
Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Bushehri stressed that the Saudi government should have had enough foresight before accepting two million pilgrims. He added that similar incidents have occurred in past years during the Stoning of the Devil ritual.
His Eminence said that Saudi Arabia is fighting wars on three fronts and sent experienced troops to the battlefield instead of having them present in the Hajj rituals. The Saudi government’s lack of responsibility and accountability has caused greater discomfort among the people and until recently, they did not even offer any consolation to the victims of this tragedy.
