DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:30 PM) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei has called upon Iraqis to be wary of American plots in the Arab country.

The Leader said this during a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi during a meeting in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Thursday. The Ayatollah did however praise the Iraqi government for its recent efforts to improve ties with regional partners and bordering states in the Middle East.

“The Americans created Daesh [ISIS] themselves, but now that the terrorists have been defeated by the Iraqi government and people, they pretend to be supportive of this important development (…) However, they will undoubtedly not hesitate to harm Iraq again if they find the opportunity,” the 78-year old Leader stated.

As for the recent successes Iraq has made in the fight against ISIS, Ayatollah Khamenei praised the unity between different ethnic groups within Iraq, as well as Baghdad’s support for and cooperation with the people’s militias known as the Popular Mobilisation Units as being the most important factors for Iraq’s ongoing victories in the war against terrorism.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi from his side stressed that Baghdad is determined to safeguard the country’s territorial integrity and national unity, and reiterated that no disintegration of the Iraqi nation would ever be accepted.

Personal I am no fan of the Mullahs. Too close ties to the Vatican, but in that case Mr. Khamenei is %100 right, because he knows what is do come, right Mr. Khamenei?
Are the readers, includes Mr. Brecht Jonkers, aware yous will find Mullahs in the Vatican on a daily base? They are everywhere, all the time.
Are the readers, includes Mr. Brecht Jonkers, aware a good amount of cardinals in the Vatican converted to Islam?

Nonsense. Why would the mullahs be in the Vatican on a daily basis when they should be in their mosques back home with their congregations? Name one Catholic cardinal that has converted to Islam.
As far as I can observe, of all the religions currently in existence, Islam is most afraid of losing members of their faith to others. That is why the punishments for apostasy in many Middle Eastern countries are so harsh.
