Cleric warns US infiltrating

TEHRAN, Sep. 24 (MNA) – Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami led the Eid al-Adha prayers and touched upon JCPOA at the sermon afterward.

One of the most significant festivals on the Muslim calendar, the Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) was celebrated by Iranians across the country.

The prayers of the Eid al-Adha is one of the rituals of the day which was held early in the morning in mosques, Musallas and open grounds on Thursday in all Iranian cities.

Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami led the Eid al-Adha prayers held in Tehran with flocks of people and high-profile officials of the country in attendance.

Noting the start of educational year in Iran, the cleric urged focus on academic endevours in unversities across the nation as he called political activities of parties in campuses unnecessary.

Rapping the “Israeli regime” for "insult" on Al-Aqsa mosque, the Grand Ayatollah described Israeli soldiers and police forces treading on the holy place as ruthless and evil while nobody voiced protest against it in the Islamic worls, as the US has involved the Mulim nations with ISIL and terrorism.

He highlighted Iran’s Leader putting emphasis on unity among Muslims as Al-Aqsa violaters took advatage of the disharmony among Muslims.

Reiterating the necessity of removal of sanctions after implementing the JCPOA, Ayatollah Khatami rejected the idea of suspension of the embargos.

He also notified the sensitivity of post-JCPOA events vis-a-vis the time before signing it as he called the American adminstration untrustworthy.

Khatami declined the interpretation that Iran-US relations are thawing as he stressed the all-out differences of policies of the two countries.

The senior cleric slammed those who heavily censure the Parliament's Special Commission for JCPOA and called their move against the Constitusion.

He added that a country supporting terrorism, bringing up ISIL, and backing the “anti-Islam regime of Israel” would never be a friend of Iran.

He also warned Iranian officials to be weary of the US seeking to infiltrate in economic, political, and worse than all cultural system of the country.

He concluded that with all history of US measures against Iran, since the American backed 1953 Coup to topple democratically elected Mosadegh, Iranians would keep the grudge against the US.
