London (GPA) – In recent years, it is increasingly possible to hear about the threat of “British Shiism”. This hidden enemy is the instrument of the Kufra world to fight the Ummah and its revolutionary force.
“British Shiism” was created to fight the ideas of the Islamic revolution and prevent the unification of Muslims with their provocative antics, British agents are trying to wage a secret struggle with the Islamic enlightenment around the world. The following are the words of the great scientists, politicians, and analysts of Iran about this dangerous sect created by the British and their allies.
To begin with, Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei addressed radical Shias in London, saying “We do not approve of the kind of Shia whose headquarters are in London [audience chant “Allahu Akbar”] because it is not the kind of Shia that the Holy Prophet’s household (greetings be upon them) promoted. The kind of Shia that is based on creating discord and on clearing the road for the presence of the enemies of Islam is not real Shia, rather it is a deviation. Shia is the epitome of original Islam and the Holy Quran. We will support all those people who help unity and we will oppose all those who act against unity. We will support all the oppressed.”
According to Khamenei, these organizations promote sectarianism: “The fact, that there are TV stations launched to insult (Sunni figures) well, makes it crystal clear that they are funded by the British Treasury; this is British Shiism. This game, of insults, will have a contrary function. When you insult others, the words of truth won’t be heard,” and that “Inciting emotions among other branches of Islam, in the name of Shiism, is actually the approach of ‘British Shi’ism’;–whose outcome would be the emergence of vicious groups and mercenaries from the U.S., and the U.K’s intelligence services, such as ISIS, Al-Nusra Front, and terrorist groups–who have committed multiple crimes and destruction in the region.”
“When you witness that certain radios and television channels are launched in the world Islam whose job is to insult the great personalities of other denominations under the title and in the name of Shia, it is clear that this is funded by the English Treasury. This is funded by the English Treasury. This is English Shia! No one should think that developing Shia and Shia ideology and strengthening Shia faith is dependent on such insults and such a manner of speaking. This is not the case because such courses of action produce the opposite result.”
“English Shia and American Sunni are the same. All of them are the same. They are the two edges of one pair of scissors. They are trying to pit Muslims against one another. This is the message that the willpower of discord – which is satanic willpower – is conveying, but the message of unity is that Muslims should pass through such discord, that they should stand by one another’s side and that they should work together.”
“We do not believe in the kind of Shi’a Islam which is supported by London; we do not consider those Sunnis [Wahabbi] who are supported by the US and Israel as Muslims: we do not believe them to be Muslim in any way. Islam is opposed to kufr [disbelief], to oppression, and to arrogance: these are our common points of interest. Our commonalities are monotheism, Ka’aba, and the existence of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.); another characteristic we have in common is expressing kindness towards the Ahlul Bayt [the Holy Prophet’s household] (as). There are many other commonalities: all of our obligations are among our shared features.”
