Once again we see the Islamic supremacist deflection of responsibility. Ayatollah Qommi couldn't offer an honest evaluation of why Sunnis and Shi'ites are fighting one another, because that would touch on Sunni-Shi'ite hot buttons that he didn't want to discuss while speaking in Sunni Pakistan (where so much of the violence has taken place). How much easier it was for him to blame the U.S. and that ever-present bogeyman, Israel.
"Ayatollah Moshin Qommi: Global imperialism masterminds Shia-Sunni riots to save Israel," from the Ahlul Bayt News Agency, September 30 (thanks to Twostellas):
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Ayatollah Mohsin Qommi, head of international affairs of the office of Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution, Imam Khamenei, has said that the U.S.-led global imperialism was the mastermind of Shia-Sunni riots across the world.
“Shia-Sunni tension is created to benefit and defend the weak and illegitimate state of Israel,” he said addressing the annual convention of the ISO in Lahore.
Shiite News Correspondent reported that Ayatollah Mohsin Qommi said that the imperialist powers have been exposed and humiliated in all over the world. Due to Islamic Awakening and the awakening of the oppressed nations, U.S.-led imperialism cannot continue and it will die soon.
“I am proud to be here among the pious and righteous youths of Pakistan. I am proud that I represent the Supreme Leader here,” he said.
The senior cleric said that Imam Khamenei too love Pakistani pious youth as they adore their leader. He said that righteous people always faced evil powers. He said that Imam Hussain (AS) countered Yazidi forces and now Islamic Ummah and oppressed nations are facing the satanic power U.S.
“75% of the media is under control of the U.S. through which the devil of the world politics manipulates global and regional events. The U.S. impose wars on nations and usurp their resources,” he said.
Ayatollah Qommi further said that Palestine still remains under the domination of an illegitimate state because the U.S. supports illegitimate Zionist regime of Israel.
Meanwhile, Ayatollah Qommi also visited the office of Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen Punjab Chapter. Allama Nasir Abbas Jafari, Allama Amin Shaheedi, Allama Haider Ali Javadi, Allama Shaikh Hassan Salahuddin, Allama Aijaz Behishti and other eminent scholars received him at the office.
Talking to them, Ayatollah Qommi said that Supreme Leader endorse the decisions of representative Shia leaders and scholar of other countries regarding their countries. Therefore, he supports the MWM for its role in defence of Islam and Shiites in particular.
He said that Pakistan is an important Muslim majority country and Islamic Republic of Iran always attaches importance to this brotherly neighbouring country. He urged the Shiites to remain united and always preach love and tolerance and strong relations with Sunni brethren.
