Qom Friday Prayer Leader:‎
Ayatollah Arafi explained the prominent achievements of Martyr Haj Qasem Soleymani and ‎emphasized, “The path of reconciliation with terrorists is closed and the path of resistance ‎must be pursued.”‎ ‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers at ‎Qom’s ‎Qods ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Alireza Arafi offered his condolences on the martyrdom of General ‎Qasem Soleymani on January 3rd, the death of a number of citizens who died in a stampede ‎during the martyr’s funeral in Kerman on January 7th, a plane crash near Tehran on January ‎‎8th and a bus crash on January 9th. ‎

The head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran referred to the achievements of General ‎Soleymani before his martyrdom and said, “For more than twenty years Haj Qasem was the ‎commander of the Qods Force and his support for the growth and power of Hezbollah is ‎considered to be his achievement. The arrogant powers in the world are furious because due ‎to General Soleymani and people like him, Hezbollah rose up and defeated the Zionist ‎regime.”‎

Referring to General Soleymani’s support for the Palestinian struggle, especially in the Gaza ‎Strip, he added, “Among his other achievements that shook the arrogant powers and ‎established the power to confront the enemies in Palestine, supported the oppressed and ‎defeated and attacked the extremist and Daesh movements.”‎

Ayatollah Arafi considered defeating the “New Middle East” plan as one of the great ‎achievements of General Soleymani and stated, “The failure of the occupiers’ plans to divide ‎the Islamic world was the result of General Soleymani’s resistance and the valiant youth of ‎the Islamic Resistance Axis.”‎
‎ ‎
The jurisprudent member of the Guardian Council stated, “With the blood of Martyr ‎Soleymani, the oppression, the terroristic nature and the violation of rights and laws by the ‎United States became clear to the world and the foundations of the friendship between the ‎Iranian and Iraqi people and solidarity with the Islamic Resistance Axis were furthered and ‎strengthened.”‎

He said, “The enemies must not think that because they assassinated Haj Qasem Soleymani ‎in the middle of the night, our shouts will be extinguished. Our people remember the ‎message of Imam [Khomeyni] in accepting the [United Nations Security Council] Resolution ‎‎598 when he said ‘keep your anger in your hearts and one day, empty this anger on the ‎heads of the arrogant powers of the world.’ The blood of Martyr Soleymani has fueled this ‎anger and it will descend on the enemies.”‎

Ayatollah Arafi referred to Iran’s response to the United States’ act of terrorism and added, ‎‎“For the first time in the Islamic world, a country dared to attack the military bases of the ‎American terrorists with missiles. This achievement of the Iranian people, the greatness of ‎the blood of Martyr Soleymani, the Islamic discourse and the Islamic Revolution were ‎manifested in the defensive and military power of Iran. For the first time the United States ‎was subject to a direct blow from the Iranian nation in defence of its dignity and history will ‎never forget this.”‎

His Eminence stressed that the path to reconciliation with terrorists was closed and added, ‎‎“Governments and movements in Iran and around the world know that terrorists can’t be ‎compromised with. Their language is the language of force and that the extraordinary power ‎of missiles and your great faith can dignify society and you must pursue the dialogue of ‎resistance.”‎
