“Although Daesh reached its end in Iraq and Syria, one should not ignore the deception of enemies as the US, Zionism and their lackeys will not stop the animosity against Islam and they may hatch and implement a plot similar to Daesh and the likes in another region,” said the Leader on Thursday, Press TV reported.
Ayatollah Khamenei was speaking at a Thursday meeting with a group of scholars who attended an international conference on countering Takfirism in the Iranian capital, Tehran.
The Leader further underlined the Islamic Republic’s determination to stand against any plot by Israel and global arrogance to instigate wars among Muslims, noting that Iran will emerge victorious in such a campaign as it did so in its fight against Daesh in Iraq and Syria.
The Leader pointed to Iran’s significant progress and its resistance against hegemonic powers despite four decades of US and Israeli pressure against the country.
“We expressly announce that the Islamic Republic of Iran will provide assistance wherever there is a need for fighting infidelity and arrogance, and in saying so we show no consideration for anyone,” he added.
Ayatollah Khamenei underlined the importance of the Palestine issue as “the key to conquering the enemies of Islam,” noting that hegemonic powers and Israel have turned Palestine into a “base for disrupting the security of regional countries” since they have occupied the Muslim country.
The Leader argued that the enemies seek to create security for Israel by sowing discord among Muslims, noting, “The day when Palestine is returned to the Palestinian people, the hegemonic powers will receive the real blow; we continue efforts to reach that day to come.”
