Leader: Muslim unity key to progress of Islamic worldThe Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday that unity and resistance against bullying powers is the key to the progress of the Muslim world.

He made the remarks on the occasion of Eid al-Mab’ath that marks the anniversary of the day Muhammad (PBUH) was raised to prophethood through divine order. Ayatollah Khamenei was addressing a gathering of Iranian authorities and ambassadors from Muslim nations.

Regretting US divisive policies towards the world of Islam, Ayatollah Khamenei said that plunderers have their hands in the pockets of some regional countries and, in order to continue their policies, project Shiism as their enemy.

The Muslim governments had better realize that the main objective of US support for one Muslim country and hostility towards another is to prevent unity within the Muslim world, and a common understanding among Muslims of their common interests.

The United States and Zionists are directing belligerence against Iran because Islam is most prominent in the Islamic Republic, he said.

“After the establishment of the Islamic Republic, where some features of the Prophet’s rule emerged, and still continues, the enemies of human societies began battling what constitutes the reason for the progress of human societies, namely Islam, because Islam can stop oppression against humanity,” the Leader said.

“Today, all these animosities [targeting Iran and Islam] are spearheaded by the US and Zionists,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Leader noted that “the creation of terrorist groups in the name of Islam and engendering divisions among Muslim countries, including in Iraq, Syria, Bahrain, and Yemen, are among the conspiracies devised by the oppressive US and the evil Zionist regime to fight Islam.”

Advice for Iran’s presidential candidates

Ayatollah Khamenei further told the candidates contesting the presidential elections in Iran that they should not be eyeing foreign assistance to enable the country’s development.

“They should pledge that they would look toward the [Iranian] nation itself, and not look beyond the borders for the advancement of the country’s affairs, its economic development, and for removing obstacles,” the Leader stated.

The Iranian presidential election is slated for May 19.
