Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told the participants in the International Conference of Muslim University Professors and Islamic Awakening in Tehran on Tuesday that the U.S. wants to eliminate Islam and Islamists and any notion that it may come to terms with Islamic movements is wrong.
“Wherever Islam and Islamists (‘Islam-gara’) are present, the U.S. will make every effort to eliminate them; notwithstanding the smile they always wear on their face,” Khamenei said. (leader.ir, 11 December)
“Any notion that the global arrogance led by the U.S. may come to terms with Islamic movements is wrong,” Khamenei added.
Khamenei also cautioned the revolutionaries throughout the region to keep a safe distance distance form the U.S.
“I am not saying they (the revolutionaries) should go to war with the arrogance (the U.S.), but if they don’t keep their distance, they will be fooled,” Khamenei added (leader.ir)
