The “truth of the Is­lamic awak­en­ing” was con­veyed last week by the supreme leader of the Is­lamic Revo­lu­tion, Ay­a­tol­lah Seyyed Ali Khamene’i, in a mes­sage to Hajj pil­grims “The Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment, the dom­i­neer­ing cap­i­tal­ism of the West and the cor­rupt Zion­ist po­lit­i­cal lob­by­ists have be­gun to sense the liv­ing truth of the Is­lamic awak­en­ing, and by ad­mit­ting that their mil­i­tary might is use­less against this truth, they are us­ing all their power to em­ploy po­lit­i­cal ploys and tac­tics. “The en­tire Mus­lim ummah, whether the po­lit­i­cal, cul­tural and re­li­gious elite, or the masses of peo­ple, must re­main vig­i­lant more than ever be­fore, and try to iden­tify and foil the con­niv­ing schemes of the en­emy… The con­cept of the West es­pe­cially af­ter be­ing led by the US, through its fla­grant acts of op­pres­sion and end­lessly ar­ro­gant and il­log­i­cal be­hav­iour, is now clearly seen as an an­ti­value in the Is­lamic world. “Their treat­ment of the Pales­tinian peo­ple com­pared to their treat­ment of the blood­thirsty Zion­ist regime, their po­si­tion with re­spect to the ad­mis­sion of the Zion­ist regime on pos­ses­sion of nu­clear weapons against their po­si­tion on civil­ian use of nu­clear en­ergy by Iran... and even open defama­tion of Is­lam by high-rank­ing au­thor­i­ties in the West, in­clud­ing the Pope, while mak­ing any in­quiry into and ques­tion­ing of Holo­caust or the for­ma­tion of the Zion­ist regime a pun­ish­able of­fence. “All the hul­la­baloo on the war on ter­ror while clan­des­tinely talk­ing with and sup­port­ing bru­tal ter­ror­ists in Iraq. A pro­found and deep-rooted move­ment has be­gun in the Is­lamic world. This move­ment will lead to the in­de­pen­dence, dig­nity and re­ju­ve­na­tion of the Mus­lim ummah.” (Source: The Ira­nian IRNA news agency web­site, Tehran, in English, De­cem­ber 29) In a ser­mon from the holy mosque in Mecca, Shaykh Muham­mad Bin-Salih Al Talib called for an end to in-fight­ing among Mus­lims “What shall we say to our brothers in Pales­tine, Iraq, Le­banon, Afghanistan, and other volatile Is­lamic coun­tries which are im­preg­nable to en­e­mies but are lost in their dif­fer­ences? Each Mus­lim is pained by his brethren Mus­lims fight­ing one an­other while the en­emy is watch­ing them hap­pily. “[Hail] the lib­er­a­tion of Afghanistan, the de­feat of the Zion­ists in Le­banon, the de­par­ture of the en­emy from Gaza Strip, and the fail­ure of the usurper in Iraq… Mus­lims must patch up their dif­fer­ences and place pub­lic wel­fare over self­ish­ness. “Lead­ers and ulema should do ev­ery­thing they can to end the let­ting of Mus­lims’ blood. [I ask God to] strengthen Is­lam, to sup­port Mus­lims, to hu­mil­i­ate athe­ism and athe­ists, to de­stroy the en­e­mies of the re­li­gion, to save Al-Aqsa Mosque from Jews, to pro­tect the two holy mosques, and to give suc­cess to the Saudi lead­ers.” (Source: Saudi TV1, in Ara­bic, De­cem­ber 22)
