SHAFAQNA – Ayatollah Arafi has emphasized that Saudi Arabia has not achieved any of its goals in Yemen, saying that Ansarullah is stronger than ever.
During his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in Qom’s Holy Shrine of Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah (S), Ayatollah Ali-Reza Arafi noted that the United States and the arrogant powers seek to divide the Muslim world. “By promoting Takfirism and terror throughout the region, these countries seek to harm relations among Muslims,” he said.
Ayatollah Arafi stated added that the arrogant powers are promoting dissention in the interest of the Zionist entity and the West and explained that the House of Saud is a tool in the service of the arrogant and sinister colonialist powers. “By launching an aggressive attack on Yemen, the House of Saud has committed one of the most horrifying acts,” he explained.
In response to the question over whether the House of Saud has achieved their aims and succeeded or failed during their ruthless invasion of Yemen, the president of al-Mustafa International University responded that Saudi Arabia claims to have achieved its goals and reached victory, but analysts have argued that their assault has failed.
“Perhaps the House of Saud has reached its goals in massacring the oppressed and defenceless Yemeni people and in the destruction of the country’s infrastructure, but they haven’t achieved anything else,” he said.
The renowned scholar added that the House of Saud sought to suppress Ansarullah [the Houthis], but the Saudis have not achieved any of their goals in this regard because today, Ansarullah and Yemen have become the new front of resistance against the arrogant powers. The House of Saud wants to break up Yemen again. However, today Yemenis are far more united than every before and most of Yemen’s 21 governorates are in Ansarullah’s hands.
Qom’s Friday prayer leader emphasized that from a political perspective, the House of Saud has suffered a disgraceful defeat in their aggression on Yemen. Also, ISIL, who are the agents of the House of Saud, are surrounded by Yemeni Muslim forces. “From a moral and humane perspective, the House of Saud has been humiliated and disgraced,” he said.
Ayatollah Arafi stated that the House of Saud must stop promoting divisiveness and support Muslims and the Islamic Awakening. He explained that the House of Saud has always been working alongside the arrogant powers of the world and are a “black spot on the history of Arabia.”
“The House of Saud and the world have realized that the Islamic Revolution and the Islamic Awakening are on the path of resistance and stability and are fighting against the arrogant powers. At the end of all these conflicts, victory will be on the side of truth,” His Eminence stated.
In regard to Iran’s ongoing negotiations with the P5+1 group of countries over Iran’s disputed peaceful nuclear program, Ayatollah Arafi emphasized that four points: sanctions should be removed along with any agreement, nuclear research should not be prohibited, negotiations should only focus on the nuclear issue and inspections must be under international supervision. “All actions must maintain Iran’s dignity, strength and courage in order to solve the problems caused by our enemies,” he explained.
