TEHRAN (FNA)- Enemies of Islam are exercising plots to stir sectarian strife in the Muslim states, a senior Iranian legislator warned, underlining the need for vigilance against the US and Israeli divisive plans in the region.
“The reality is that the strategy of the US and the Zionist regime of Israel is to get the Islamic countries embroiled in civil wars and the massacre of Muslims by themselves,” Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Sunday.
“Its vivid example is in Syria, where the deviant Takfiri mentality kills Muslims in the name of Islam and uses chemical weapons,” he added.
The lawmaker pointed out that the Takfiri crimes also target the followers of other divine religions. Such crimes, he added, have recently also targeted Lebanon’s security.
“The Islamic countries must liberate themselves from this US-Zionism ploy and aim their weapons in such a way as to defend themselves and counter the intruding enemies,” Boroujerdi stated.
Early in June, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei urged the Muslim nations to be vigilant against the plots hatched by the enemies to create rift among them.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with Iranian officials and ambassadors of Muslim countries in Tehran on the occasion of Mab’ath, the anniversary of the appointment of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) to prophethood.
“Hegemonic powers intend to sow discord among Muslims in order to distract them from their main issues and making the necessary progress,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Supreme Leader noted that the most important duty of Muslim nations under the present conditions is to remain vigilant against the enemy plots in a bid to be able to take appropriate measures and avoid mistakes.
“The enemy’s main scheme is to create rifts and conflict among Muslims. So, unity, solidarity and cooperation are the most pressing needs of the Muslim world,” Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
He said that the enemies seek to drive a wedge between Muslims to deflect their attention from their main enemies which are corrupt capitalism and the Zionist regime of Israel.
