Iraqi Sunni Cleric:‎
Rasa – Shaykh al-Mulla ‎argued that by following the wise leadership of Iran will prevent any ‎harm to the IRGC by the United States and said, “The United States is trying to divide the ‎Iranian people."‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Shaykh Khalid al-Mulla, the ‎chairman of ‎the Scholars Council of Iraq,‎ referred to the designation of the Islamic ‎Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization by the Trump administration ‎and said, “It’s not strange for the United States to put the IRGC on its list of terrorist groups ‎because it has acted against Iranian institutions since the Islamic Revolution until today and ‎is taking steps which are in the interests of the Zionists.”‎

The Iraqi Sunni cleric ‎added, “The United States wants to put pressure on the Iranian people ‎by placing the IRGC on its list of terrorist groups but by adopting positions in line with Iran, ‎the Islamic resistance movements in the region have isolated the American authorities. This ‎is considered as part of Tehran’s support for the Islamic resistance.”‎

In regard to a meeting in Saudi Arabia aimed at announcing an ‘Arab NATO,’ Shaykh al-Mulla ‎said, “The project in the region aims to prevent the international activities of Islamic ‎organizations and movements. As a result, the West is trying to form a coalition for this ‎purpose but as the name of the Arab NATO implies, this coalition will be formed based upon ‎complete Western criteria aimed at confronting the people of the region.”‎
‎ ‎
He said, “Through its actions against the IRGC, the United States is trying to divide the ‎Iranian people but by following the wise leadership of Iran, the people will prevent the ‎United States from reaching its goals and they will not be able to destroy their unity.”‎
‎ ‎
Shaykh al-Mulla ‎added, “Although it took about two years to put the IRGC on the list of ‎terrorist groups until its implementation, but with this generosity, the United States suffered ‎serious miscalculations because they were unaware of the support for the IRGC by Islamic ‎groups in the region and the Iranian people and this support will prevent the IRGC from ‎being harmed.”‎
