Occupied Ahwaz / Iran / Jordan:
“سفير الأردن في إيران : “إيران تذل السفراء العرب وتمنعهم من الصلاة حتى يوم الجمعة
Finally, another Arab diplomat has announced it publicly. How naive most of the Arabs are! (Video below).
Jordan’s ambassador to Iran: “Iran humiliate Arab ambassadors and prevent them from praying Jouma’a (Friday) prayer! These are such criticisms as Iran keeps asking Jordan to allow building a Husainieh (Shiite prayer venue) in Abdoon, Amman while there is no at least ONE MOSQUE for Muslim Sunnite in all of Tehran! We used to pray Jouma’a Prayer in the Saudi Consulate in Tehran in a garage with mats inside it, and that’s only for diplomats and their families not even accessible for public. And yet Iran is working on preventing us from praying Jouma’a recently! We are not even allowed to make Adhan (Call to prayers) publicly in Tehran as well as not allowing Muslim public to join us in prayers, despite the big numbers of Churches in Tehran alone.”
These spoken words from a Jordanian diplomat who was in a close relationship with the Iranian authorities are not new or shocking to me. I’ve been talking about this issue years ago and trying to spread the word as far as I can, but unfortunately God has tested me with thousands of stupid and naive Arabs and Muslims in this region. I have mentioned in an earlier article how Sunni Muslims in parts of Tehran were prevented from holding their own congregational prayers to celebrate the Eid festival (Eid-el Adha) and I have showed how the Iranian security forces barred worshipers from entering some houses that they had rented for the purpose of holding the prayer, knowing that there is not even ONE Mosque for Sunni worshipers in Tehran, Iran (the so-called Islamic State).
Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has guaranteed freedom of belief and religion as it stipulates that “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, TO MANIFEST HIS RELIGION OR BELIEF IN TEACHING, PRACTICE, WORSHIP AND OBSERVANCE.”
Furthermore, the Iranian Constitution recognizes Islam as its official religion. The Constitution also recognizes Zoroastrians, Jews, and Christians as religious minorities along with Sunni Muslims. The adherents of these religions LEGALLY FREE TO PERFORM THEIR RELIGIOUS RITES AND CEREMONIES, and to act according to their own canon in matters of personal affairs and religious education!
Article 4 of Iran’s Constitution states that; “all Iranian laws must conform to Islamic criteria, as determined by the Guardian Council”, and Article 167 obligates judges to give precedence to Islamic Sharia in ruling upon cases presented to them!
Where is the so-called Islamic Republic of Iran from these Articles? Where are the hypocrites of Iran from implementing these Articles inside Iran and on the people of Iran in the first level?
Iran have nothing to do with Islam and Muslims. I believe there is no difference between Iran and Israel and any other fanatic blood-loving country, Iran and Israel both work systematically on destroying all aspects of Islam by misrepresenting its beautiful and peaceful teachings and principles and also by preventing Muslims from practicing their religion and spreading the word of it.
