Trump's vain remarks united Islamic states in resistance drive: Iranian cleric

Tehran, Dec 15, IRNA – Tehran temporary Friday Prayer Leader Kazem Seddiqi lambasted US President Donald Trump for his anti-Quds stance, saying that his inonsense statements prompted Muslim states stand in being united in their resistance.

Addressing the weekly congregational prayers on Friday, he added that Trump and the Zionist regime are seeking to create sedition among the Islamic states to fulfill their plots.

Palestine is the first issue of the Islamic World which the US and Israeli regime attempted to sideline it, but Trump's idiotic remarks made all Muslim countries to stand united and show reaction.

The arrogance and its allies not only failed to achieve their goals but they also prompted Islamic states form strong defense fronts against new threats, he said.

Israel annihilation is not too far; rather it is certain and undeniable, the cleric said, noting that the Palestinian people stood up unanimously to create the third Intifada, he added.

Seddiqi also that the US was isolated once more when its anti-Quds stance was rejected even by its allies, as the Israeli shameless prime minister was told during his France visit that Trump's words are not acceptable, because they run counter to international resolutions.

The cleric also urged the Islamic states no to be satisfied with issuing resolutions and take practical measures.

As recommended by Secretary General of Lebanon's Hezbollah Seyyed Hassan Nasrullah, the countries are advised to close down their embassies in Israel and call the US ambassadors to voice their protests. As an Arab thinker has called for banning US and Israeli goods to drive the US to economic, political and intellectual isolation to stop bullying and talking nonsense, Seddiqi said.

The fact that Trump dared to utter such a word is that he is lacking wisdom and this irrationality will bring his country and nation numerous problems and create many crises across the world, he said.
