RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in the Iraqi holy city of Najaf’s al-Fatimiyah al-Kubra Husayniyah, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Sadruddin al-Qubanchi welcomed the holding of a conference with the heads of the Kuwaiti, Saudi and Jordanian parliament in Baghdad and said, “If this conference doesn’t lead to interference in Iraq’s internal, political, and international affairs, it is a positive step.”
Referring to the international coalition’s acknowledgment of murdering of 1,257 Iraqi and Syrian citizens, the Iraqi Shi’ah scholar added, “The international coalition must determine the fate of 3,000 kidnapped Yazidi youth in Iraq.”
He said, “Iraqi officials must deal with places that promote corruption and nihilism because they deceive the youth and this leads to the destruction of families.”
In another part of his Friday sermon, Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi said, “The Sha’ban Intifada –the uprising of the Iraqi people against the country’s former Ba’ath regime – was a milestone in Iraqi history on March 1, 1992 and it led to a change in international stances toward Saddam Husayn, the former dictator of Iraq. The current freedom in Iraq is due to the blessings of the blood and sacrifices of that time.”
In his sermon on religious issues, His Eminence said, “Thought, good deeds, contentment, trust, reliance on God and tolerance are factors in human happiness.”
It should be noted that Marzouq Ali al-Ghanim, the speaker of Kuwait’s parliament, said that the heads of the Kuwaiti, Saudi and Jordanian parliaments have decided to attend the conference of the heads of parliaments of Iraq’s neighbours, held in Baghdad.
In his thought-provoking remarks, he called on Arab parliaments to come to an agreement not to empty the space for other countries and said, “Arab countries must act and emphasize the expansion of Arab influence inside Iraq.”
According to al-Ghanim, Abdullah Al Shaykh, the head of the Consultative Assembly of Saudi Arabia, announced that a conference with the heads of the parliaments of the Arab Persian Gulf countries will be held in Jeddah in late March and all of the presidents of the member countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council will be invited to participate.
