Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says a "resistance movement" based on Islam is building up across the world, which is unsettling world powers, especially the US.
Ayatollah Khamenei said Sunday the sensitivity of the US to the Middle East is due to the rise of Islam and Islamic awakening which is threatening arrogant powers.
"That the world's arrogant powers and at the top of them the criminal America and the Great Satan are sensitive to Western Asia is due to a spirit of reception of Islam and Islamic awakening among the regional nations," he told participants at an international Islamic unity conference.
"Anywhere that Islam has dominated the hearts and minds of the people, the arrogance has been slapped, and we seriously believe that the arrogance will be slapped again from the Islamic awakening in this region," the Leader added.
Ayatollah Khamenei urged thinkers and religious scholars to "strengthen the Islamic awakening and resistance movement in the region as much as they can, because the only way for the salvation of the region is to spread this spirit and thinking.
The Leader also addressed certain rulers of the Islamic states, saying, "Our advice to you is to return to the rule of Islam and come under the authority of Allah because the rule of America and Satan will not benefit you."
