Enemies confront Islam in name of religion: Leader

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the enemies of Islam confront Islam in the name of the religion.

Addressing a group of Qur’an reciters on Sunday, the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution said that “the enemies’ intelligence apparatus” plays a role in fueling civil conflicts in a number of Islamic communities, including Iraq.

Praising the deep level of insight of the Islamic Ummah, Ayatollah Khamenei underscored, “The enemies of Islam are afraid of this fact and try to confront Islam in the name of Islam and under the cover of Islam.”

The Leader also insisted that religious experts are making significant and valuable efforts to familiarize the people with Qur’anic concepts.

“The planning should be so that all people become familiar with the concepts and meanings of Qur’an,” the Leader added.

Ayatollah Khamenei also highlighted the difference between American Islam and true Islam.

“The American Islam, despite having Islamic appearance and name, complies with despotism and Zionism… and totally serves the goals of despotism and the US,” stated the Leader.

On Saturday, the Leader warned against enemy plots to provoke sectarian conflicts among Shia and Sunni Muslims in the region to undermine the wave of Islamic Awakening.

“Today, the enemy is investing in civil wars in the region and pins hope on a Shia-Sunni war to relieve itself of the concern of Islamic Awakening,” the Leader said.

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the ongoing crisis in Iraq and stated that the remnants of the ousted regime of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and a bunch of ignorant people are perpetrating crimes in that country.
