Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenie said in a gathering of senior Shia clerics in Tehran today that resolving problems facing the Muslims requires the removal of the US from the Islamic World.
"The main problem in the Muslim world is the presence of the United States. It is the biggest problem. We need to address that," Khamenei said. "It is necessary to remove the United States from the Islamic world," he added.
Referring to the uprisings in the Arab world, Khamenei said the movements are not secular but Islamic in nature.
"The enemies try to say that the popular movements in Egypt, Tunisia and other nations are not Islamic, but certainly these popular movements are Islamic and must be consolidated," he said.
