'We, explicitly, declare that the Islamic Republic of Iran will help, wherever its presence needed, to confront disbelief and arrogance,' Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with participants at the 'Worldwide Conference on Takfiri Issues and Enthusiasts of Ahlul-Bayt (as)' opened in Tehran on Wednesday, IRNA reported.
'We will not compromise with anyone when expressing this,' he added, accoerding to the website of his office Khamenei.ir.
Ayatollah Khamenei regarded unity and sympathy among Muslims, in current times, as imperative, stating: 'The Islamic Republic of Iran is standing; and, it will continue to stand against the conspiracies of the arrogant Zionist Front that seeks to create rifts between Muslims. Iran will be victorious in this fight, with God’s favor; the enemy will be defeated just as the wicked ISIS was uprooted in Iraq and Syria.'
He described the presence of Muslims, in various countries, as being viewed as an imposition by the front of arrogance and disbelief, and added: 'The Muslim World can stand against the Front of Disbelief and Arrogance, today; moreover, the Islamic system in Iran, which seeks the full realization of Islamic law, will make victory over the enemies of Islam a reality.'
Referring to about 40 years of conspiracy, pressure, and sanctions--on the part of the United States and Zionism--against the Islamic system, Ayatollah Khamenei asserted: 'Despite all pressures, the Islamic Republic of Iran has made remarkable progress, thanks be to God, and has withstood, at full force, the Front of Arrogance. We, explicitly, declare that the Islamic Republic of Iran will help, wherever it's presence needed, to confront disbelief and arrogance: we will not compromise with anyone when expressing this.'
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution dubbed Palestine as the most important issue within the Muslim World, to that he added: 'The key, towards overcoming the enemies of Islam, is Palestine, because the Front of Disbelief, Arrogance, and Zionism, occupying the Islamic country of Palestine, have made it their base for disrupting the security of countries within the region. We must confront the cancerous tumor of Israel.'
Ayatollah Khamenei mentioned that the main goal of the enemies--from creating wars and conflicts among Muslims--is to create a secured margin for the Zionist Regime, however, he added: 'We hope that, one day, the people of Palestine will own their homelands, and that day will be celebrated by the entire world of Islam.' Furthermore, Ayatollah Khamenei assured participants, 'The day Palestine is returned to its people is the day a definite blow will be dealt to the Front of Arrogance: we will strive to achieve that day.'
Before the speech of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Mr. Velayati, the Secretary-General of the Global Association of Islamic Awakening, called the motto of the Worldwide Conference on Takfiri Issues and Enthusiasts of Ahlul-Bayt (as), “Love for Ahl-uhl-bait (as), a promise of unity, and revival of the Islamic civilization,” and said: 'In recent years, the enemies of Islam have sought to neutralize the effects and results of Islamic awareness with the two strategies of 'causing religious divisions' and 'Islamophobia.'
As the closing of the ceremony neared, a number of participants, individually, met with the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution.
