Tehran: Conference on Islamic awakening: Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood leader makes pilgrimage to kiss the ring of the Supreme Ayatollah

He also said that Imam Khomeini’s views have played a key role in the political changes currently taking place in the region, because he taught people to rise up against the oppressors.

They must be wounded in that they know the revolt in the Islamic world has nothing to do with the west ~ and that the empty promises of Islam have not filled the gap ~ between the reality of the western living standard and their own.

The democracy and human rights promoted by the Western countries are false slogans and the perfect version of the human rights can be found in the Islamic principles, he added.

Obviously if the MB gain control of Egypt there would be even a further erosion of human rights in favor of Islam.

TEHRAN – The conference of the Islamic Awakening in Arab World was held on Sunday in the Faculty of World Studies at the University of Tehran.

Political analysts, pundits, journalists, politicians, and lecturers gave talks at the conference on the ongoing developments and uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa which led to major political changes in countries like Tunisia and Egypt.

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has described the Islamic nations’ movements against their autocratic rulers as Islamic awakening.

Kamal al-Halbawi, a senior member of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, was one of the prominent figures who gave a speech at the conference.

“The Westerners have always tried to present Egypt as a close friend of Israel. But there is evidence that all Egyptians hate the Zionists regime and wish for the downfall of this dictatorial government,” he said.

Many people in the region are against the Zionist regime and the hegemony of the United States, he stated.

He also said that Imam Khomeini’s views have played a key role in the political changes currently taking place in the region, because he taught people to rise up against the oppressors.

Elsewhere in his remarks, al-Halbawi highlighted the importance of Islamic unity, saying Muslims should maintain their unity and solidarity because the Westerners are seeking to undermine the unity among Muslims.

He said that the Islamic countries should not ask for the West’s assistance, and they should work together to make progress.

The democracy and human rights promoted by the Western countries are false slogans and the perfect version of the human rights can be found in the Islamic principles, he added.

Massoud Shajareh, a member of the Islamic Human Rights Commission, was also one of the speakers at the conference.

He said that the most important tool of the West for controlling the regional countries is the secularization of the Muslim societies.

The Westerners try to control Muslims through dependent rulers like Hosni Mubarak and Muammar Gaddafi and establishment of NGOs which promote secularism.

He added that Muslims should make every effort to neutralize the West’s plans, and the best strategy is promotion of Islam as the best ideology in the world.

The Faculty of World Studies dean, Saeed Ameli, also gave a lecture at the conference.

He said that recent developments in the region and downfall of some regional powers are signs of the end of the U.S. hegemony in the world.

He also opined that regional nations have risen up against secularism and promotion of Western thoughts.
