Qom Friday Prayer Leader:‎
The slogan ‘Down with America’ is resonating more than ever
Rasa – Ayatollah Arafi stressed, “The slogan ‘Down with America’ means the solidarity of the ‎Islamic ummah and confrontation against the evil governments, of which the United States ‎and Israel are at the head of.”

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers at Qom’s Qods ‎Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Alireza Arafi referred to the magnificent and epic Arba’in pilgrimage and ‎said, “We must be thankful to God who graced our ummah to attend this this spiritual and ‎divine epic.”‎


The member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom added that Arba’in has an inner ‎divine motive and a divine hand led the ummah to create this magnificent epic and stated, ‎‎“The twenty million-strong Arba’in pilgrimage is the embodiment of divine values that can be ‎the engine of the Islamic ummah for unity, solidarity and resistance against the enemies and ‎there is also a moral reminder.” ‎


He criticized the Western media for boycotting the Arba’in pilgrimage and said, “When an ‎event occurs in any corner of the world, these huge giants enter and highlight the event but ‎in the course of Arba’in, other than the media of the Islamic Resistance and the Islamic ‎Revolution, Western and the propaganda octopuses of the Western and imperialistic media ‎have been silent in the face of this epic pilgrimage and they have provided false analysis in ‎some cases.” ‎


Ayatollah Arafi condemned the attacks on Arba’in mourning commemorations in some ‎countries, saying, “Unfortunately, in some countries, the mourners of Imam al-Husayn were ‎attacked. In Nigeria this year, just like last year, mourners were attacked and some of them ‎were martyred and wounded in the same manner as Daesh and [the caliph] Mutawakkil ‎acted. These governments must stop confronting the faith-based and divine Arba’in ‎pilgrimage and know that Arba’in brings the message of peace, spirituality and resistance ‎against oppression to the countries of the world.”‎


The member of the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution also condemned the ‎reception by the Omani government for Benyamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of the ‎Zionist regime, and said, “It was a egregious and strategic error. Governments must know ‎that they simply cannot cooperate with the Zionist regime because the people will not forget ‎this issue.”‎


He argued that Saudi agents were directly involved in the murder of journalist Jamal ‎Khashoqji in Turkey and this issue must be pursued. The recent excuses in Denmark were to ‎made mitigate the tragedies in Yemen and Turkey. We hope that Europe won’t continue on ‎its misguided path. The Europeans didn’t take the right actions in regard to the JCPOA and ‎their policies aren’t correct and the nation is following this debate seriously.”‎


Ayatollah Arafi said that this year, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, ‎announced that the United States would impose new sanctions and cut off Iran’s oil exports ‎on November 4th and added, “The Iranian people must realize that we have been under ‎sanctions for forty years and during this time, more than 100 indicators of development have ‎progressed.” ‎


His Eminence referred to Trump’s absurd comments and said, “[Trump] said that with the ‎withdrawal of the United States from the JCPOA, Iran has become weak, has suffered from ‎turmoil and that the people has been separated from the system and that that anti-‎imperialist slogans have declined.”‎


He added, “These are the nonsensical words of the president of the United States but Trump ‎and his mercenaries must know that the Iranian people will stand against the imperialist ‎powers by relying on divine power, unity, solidarity and by following the Supreme Leader of ‎the Revolution and won’t forget the slogan over the imperialists of the world, especially the ‎United States and will overcome these stages.”‎


Ayatollah Arafi stressed, “The slogan ‘Down with America’ means the solidarity of the Islamic ‎ummah and confrontation against the evil governments, of which the United States and ‎Israel are at the head of, and as long as their imperialistic and malicious actions continue, ‎this slogan will not end.”‎
