RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Shaykh Maher Hammoud, the chairman of the International Union of Resistance Scholars in Lebanon, referred to the death anniversary of Imam Khomeyni, the leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, said, “The late Imam’s political thought is a distinct thought and a prominent feature of his personality is courage.”
Imam Khomeyni died on June 3, 1989, after spending eleven days in Tehran’s Jamaran Hospital after repeated heart failure and stomach cancer.
The senior Lebanese Sunni scholar continued, “Imam Khomeyni’s thought played an important role in the unity of the Islamic ummah and its cohesion and all Muslims need his political slogans, which were reflected in his positions against the United States and the Zionist regime, which this cancerous tumour knows and it must be destroyed.”
Shaykh Hammoud added, “Imam Khomeyni considers Muslims as a powerful nation and considers resistance as the only way to get rid of the domination of arrogant powers. If Muslims follow his advice, the reality of the Islamic world will be different but unfortunately, most Arab rulers turned to sectarianism and the dictates of the United States because they owe their thrones to Washington.”
Referring to Saddam’s imposed war on Iran [Iran-Iraq War], he said that Arab countries supported the war under false pretenses, such as supporting the Sunnis, thus creating obstacles to the implementation of Imam Khomeyni’s recommendations among Muslims.
Shaykh Hammoud noted that Imam Khomeyni chanted slogans that reformed the theory of political Islam and gave a new identity to the Islamic ummah and said, “The Islamic Resistance Axis in the region must be freed from the accusations of leftists that it agreed with the United States because it chanted ‘America is the Great Satan’ and made everyone aware of the correct movement of the Islamic Resistance against the Westerners.”
