Qom Friday Prayer Leader:
You must not trust the Europeans
Rasa – Ayatollah Arafi stressed the need to pay attention to the dignity and authority of the country and stressed that the officials are expected to pay more attention to the recommendations of the Supreme Leader and not trust the Europeans.

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers at Qom’s Qods Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Alireza Arafi emphasized on making use of the remaining time of the holy month of Sha’ban and preparing for the upcoming holy month of Ramadhan and added, “The holy month of Ramadhan is the month of piety and man must prepare himself for it.”


Referring to the withdrawal from the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran said, “We have been familiar with the disloyal United States and some European countries for a long time. What is expected from a arrogant regime which has launched over one hundred wars in the past century, has occupied dozens of countries and doesn’t adhere to international treaties?”


He added that the wise Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, has repeatedly stated from the outset that the United States has been a great traitor which cannot even adhere to environmental treaties and we cannot trust them. The file of the United States is dark, despicable and mixed with thousands of acts of oppression and crimes. 


“We never had confidence in the Americans and it was not surprising to us that they left the JCPOA, which from our perspective isn’t a complete document,” he said.


Emphasizing that Iran and the whole world must protest against the treachery of the oppressive government of the United States, Ayatollah Arafi added, “[Iranian] officials are expected to pay more attention to the recommendations of the Supreme Leader and not to trust the Europeans because they have the same essence of treachery in them as the Americans have.”


The member of the Supreme Council of the Seminary continued, saying, “It’s said that the officials are paying more attention to the dignity of the nation and are completely precise and without an absolute guarantee, they don’t stand on anything. Even the guarantees of these countries are not credible and we must be vigilant.”


Calling for complete management for the administration of the country, he said, “We need to manage issues such as the foreign exchange and domestic production. Issues such as strengthening communication with the sensible countries of the world, trusting in internal capital and having a jihadi and resistance spirit can strengthen the economy. The disarray in the foreign exchange market and other issues must be controlled in a correct manner and we must not place hope in foreigners and all the hopes of the officials must be placed within the country.”


Referring to the sensitivity of some countries to the United States’ latest actions, Ayatollah Arafi addressed the House of Saud and the reactionary regimes in the Middle East, saying, “Don’t get excited, the United States and the Zionist regime is useless for you and doesn’t benefit you. If you care about them, you will be defeated just as you were defeated in other arenas.”


The dean of al-Mustafa International University has noted, “Today, the Islamic Resistance Front is standing against the imperialistic regime and the United States. The Islamic Republic and the Islamic Resistance Front are destroying their conspiracies and by the grace of God, all of the conspirators will be disappointed and destroyed in the near future.”


He added, “The Resistance Economy, reliance on domestic resources, protection of the defensive power against the enemies, accurate and correct decision-making against the enemies and unity and solidarity in the light of the guidance of the Supreme Leader are a series of principles that will guide the future of the country towards good.”


Ayatollah Arafi also discussed Hezbollah’s victory in the May 6th Lebanese parliamentary election and said, “Hezbollah’s victory in the Lebanese elections reflects the strength of the Islamic Resistance and that the chain of these victories will continue.”


Mentioning the rallies by the Iranian people through the country to condemn the hostile actions of the United States today, His Eminence added, “In these rallies, the people announced once again that the feet of Islam, the Revolution and ideals are firm and that they won’t allow the enemies to act impudently.
