Saudi’s attempts to normalize relations with Israel is an immense sin: Imam Khamenei
Saudi Arabia’s attempts to normalize relations with the Zionist regime is an immense sin and treason, but the U.S. has a share in this major transgression, since the Saudi government obeys the U.S., is controlled by them, and looks up to their word of mouth.
Thousands of people from several Iranian provinces, including those with various ethnic backgrounds, met with Ayatollah Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution August 1, 2016, at the Hussainiyah of Imam Khomeini.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution divulged in Saudi Arabia’s attempts, which are meant to normalize relations with the Zionist regime. He described this attempt as a stab in the Islamic Ummah’s back, saying “The move, by the Saudis, is an immense sin and treason, but the U.S. has a share in this major transgression, since the Saudi government obeys the U.S., is controlled by them, and looks up to their word of mouth.”
His eminence called out the Saudi war on Yemen, the non-stop bombardment - of houses, hospitals and schools - and ongoing infanticide in Yemen (by the Saudi regime) as other major crimes and added, “These crimes are also committed by the U.S., which is providing arms and a green light for the Saudis.”
Ayatollah Khamenei condemned the United Nation’s silence towards these crimes, by stating: “Unfortunately, even when the UN decided to condemn these crimes after a while, they threatened and pressured the UN with their money and shut its mouth. The shamed UN Secretary General admitted to these pressures, however, instead of admitting, he should have resigned rather than stay and betray humanity.”
“U.S. animosity is not limited to the Islamic Republic of Iran; there is a great chance that the recent events in Turkey were also plotted with the help of Americans; if this is proven, it will in turn become a major scandal for the U.S. Turkey was a regional ally of the U.S., but the Americans oppose Islam, and Islamic inclinations; therefore, since there is an Islamic inclination in the Turkey, they launched a coup. Of course, the attempted coups, as well as the U.S. are abhorred by the Turkish people, so the U.S. is declining in Iraq, Syria and other parts of the region.”
His eminence also shed light on the U.S.’s role in creating and strengthening Takfiri groups; aimed at sowing discord among Muslim nations, while promoting an Umayyad type of Islam; in fact, giving Islam a bad name, by stating: “The Americans claim they have formed a coalition against ISIS and takfiri groups, while they do nothing practical against them and based on certain reports, they even help these groups. Today, it has backfired to them.”
Additionally, Ayatollah Khamenei touched on the concern of Bahrain, describing the foreign troops sent to Bahrain, in order to oppress protesters, as an act supported by the U.S.
He stated, “Today the Saudi government is in the hands of unwise individuals, but a precise analysis of regional problems reveals that the U.S. has a hand in all these issues.”
