Leader receives top Muslim world parliamentarians
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has received participants in the 13th session of the Parliamentary Union of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Member States.
The meeting was held in Tehran on Tuesday after the Muslim world's senior parliamentarians attended the morning session of the conference.
Ayatollah Khamenei urged Muslim countries to counter the "dangerous and horrific Western propaganda empire" which, the Leader said, is run by Zionists.
The Leader stressed the importance of countering the "conspiracy of silence" aimed at cosigning to oblivion the main issues of the Muslim world, particularly the Palestinian cause.
Ayatollah Khamenei warned that the important issue of Palestine is being totally ignored by the international community.
The Leader emphasized that the Muslim world must now play a role in "important and fundamental issues" and prevent the reoccurrence of the "bitter experience of the past decades and dominance of powers and their long-term effects."
Ayatollah Khamenei called on the Muslim countries to be explicit vis-à-vis the fundamental issues of the Muslim world in order to be able to influence public opinion and set trends.
He emphasized the significance of "unity in the Muslim world" and said unity in the Muslim world which enjoys enormous facilities and a very crucial global status can prepare the ground for the formation of a "big and influential power."
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution added that Muslim countries should not allow discord, war and bloodshed, whose main cause are the US and Zionists, to establish a safe haven for the Zionist regime.
Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei further pointed to the US claim on advocating human rights and said the current US president is stating the country's stances "very nakedly and explicitly."
He further called on Muslim nations to help resolve the crises in Yemen and Bahrain as they are among the important issues of the Muslim world.
The Leader also noted that the Iranian nation has managed to thwart the enemies' economic war against the Islamic Republic, including sanctions, through its resistance.
