RNA – A conference on "the Decline of the United States" was organized by the Arba’in Committee of the Province of Qom on November 5th at the Qom Mosalla (Prayer Hall).
Speaking at the conference, Nader Talebzadeh, a renowned Iranian political scientist, referred to the presence of Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI), in Iran and said, “He came to Iran during a very sensitive time and his surprising presence has attracted international organizations because when national solidarity occurs in the United States, he is in the first row.”
The film director said that Mr. Farrakhan is a representative of African American Muslims in the United States and added, “He also has a special influence among Christians of colour and that the followers of various religions in the United States have a special respect for him. Thus, at a time when Trump declares stronger sanctions against Iran, [Farrakhan’s] presence in Iran will be considered as a great risk.”
Mr. Talebzadeh added that Mr. Farrakhan’s words are influential among American Christians because he is fully aware of the Bible, art and the Quran and also knows psychology. Today, after 22 years, he came to Iran and had a sincere meeting with the Supreme Leader of the Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei].”
Stressing that the United States is angry with our nation, he said, “Today, I saw anger over the presence of Mr. Farrakhan in Iran in American and Israeli newspapers and undoubtedly, the sacrifice, selflessness and devotion of the Nation of Islam is evident in this movement.”
The expert in political affairs said, “This movement and Mr. Farrakhan have made great efforts for the victory of the Muslims. One of their main beliefs is the expectation of the advent of the Imam of the Time to the extent that he and the Islamic Movement in the United States have a special dedication to Imam al-Mahdi.”
In conclusion, Mr. Talebzadeh added, “We appreciate this opportunity and we hope that these events will continue in Islamic Iran and in other world-renowned cities such as Qom, so that the hegemonic United States will know that Islam, our religion and our revolution will not suffer from decline.”
