Iran's Rouhani calls for Muslims to unite against United States

Source: Reuters



NOVEMBER 24, 2018 / 3:07 AM / UPDATED 7 HOURS AGO

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called on Muslims worldwide on Saturday to unite against the United States, instead of “rolling out red carpets for criminals”.

Washington in May reimposed sanctions on Tehran, after President Donald Trump pulled out of a 2015 international nuclear deal with Iran under which they had been lifted.

“Submitting to the West headed by America would be treason against our religion ... and against the future generations of this region,” Rouhani told an international conference on Islamic unity in Tehran, in a speech broadcast live on state television.

“We have a choice to either roll out red carpets for criminals, or to forcefully stand against injustice and remain faithful to our Prophet, our Koran and our Islam,” Rouhani said, in an apparent reference to Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states which have close ties to Washington.

2. Thanks for sharing, Mr. Rouhani. Get back to us after some Sunni

extremist bombs another Shi’a mosque or gathering place.

3. Just a reminder:

This is the result of the potus using his deal making skills to bring peace to the Middle East. What did he think would happen when he terminated the Iran Nuclear deal? I don't see him rushing into Iran with his new plan to replace the one he terminated.

6. It's because Trump forced his hand on this rhetoric.

Trump's actions are what makes it impossible for him to be silent or to say anything other than what he's said.

If Trump had not messed with the Iran deal Rouhani could have remained silent.

7. red dons got a month to revive the muslim hate rhetoric and start a war.

Then the dems are bad for beating up on a 'war prez'...during the coming investigations. Saudi Arabia, Im sure will help make some attack look good.
