Hujjat al-Islam ‎stressed that Iran has disgraced the United States by ‎shooting down its drone ‎over the Persian Gulf.‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in ‎‎the‎ ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Pakistani city of Lahore, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Jawad ‎Naqvi ‎stressed that Iran has disgraced ‎the United States by shooting down its drone over the Persian Gulf and said, “Many incidents ‎have taken place in the Persian Gulf and on June 20th, an important incident took place in ‎this region wherein Iran shot down an American spy drone. This was a drone of the latest ‎technology which they used for spying in many places to obtain images and observe the ‎military movements of other countries. They flew this drone from a base in the United Arab ‎Emirates and entered Iranian territorial waters.”‎

The principal of Jami’at Urwat ‎‎al-Wuthqa Islamic ‎Seminary in Lahore ‎added, “This wasn’t the ‎first time that this has happened – In December 2011 also Iran was able to down an ‎American drone by using electronic systems to take control of it. They reverse engineered it ‎and started to manufacture drones themselves. The Obama administration asked Iran to ‎return the captured drone but Iran refused to return it. This drone contained advanced ‎technology and its downing was a big shock for the world. In such a situation where the ‎United States came with its marine fleets, forces and technology and has besieged Iran along ‎with its Arab alliance and talks about war every day, Iran has shown the courage to down its ‎drone. The reaction which Trump has shown was only a small statement that Iran has made ‎a big mistake and he wasn’t expecting Iran to do this.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam ‎Naqvi ‎also referred to the visit by Shinzō Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, ‎and said, “Abe came to Iran as a representative of Trump and met the Supreme Leader of ‎the Islamic Revolution and received a historic response from him. This was a historic ‎moment for every Muslim in the world. Every community must witness that despite of being ‎besieged and suffering from high inflation and many threats and having the entire world ‎against them but for the sake of their dignity, they aren’t surrendering to anyone. They have ‎said ‘if the United States makes a mistake we will punish them.’ The drone didn’t even enter ‎into Iran’s airspace and was shot down while it was above Iranian territorial waters.”‎

His Eminence said, “The Iranian leadership has announced that if this war takes place then ‎the United States won’t be in any position to fight any more wars in future. On the other ‎hand, Arab nations and Israel are putting all efforts on the table for this war to take place. ‎Muhammad ibn Salman [the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia] and Israel have formally asked ‎the United States to attack Iran. The attack that took place on two oil tankers in the Gulf of ‎Oman has been declared as dubious by the United Nations and looks like it was a ‘false flag’ ‎operation carried out by Israel or Persian Gulf Arab monarchies in order to blame Iran and ‎with this excuse, the United States will attack but still the United States didn’t have courage ‎and sent a spy drone and tasted the consequences.”‎

He stressed that when you encounter a dignified community, you can see what the outcome ‎will be. I wish other Muslim nations and rulers should also learn this lesson of dignity and ‎said, “How many drones did they send to Pakistan which did so much damage and went ‎away. I remember some retired army officers who issued statements now who desired that ‎Pakistan could down one American drone. Those drones come down to Pakistan and killed ‎innocent people. The Pentagon has confessed that they have killed thousands of people ‎through drone attacks. They said this must be done to act against terrorism. If the entire ‎Islamic world can learn this lesson of dignity then they can achieve the path of dignity.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam ‎Naqvi ‎said that alongside this chaos in the Persian Gulf, a rocket hit an Iraqi ‎compound housing several international oil companies, including the American multinational ‎ExxonMobil, in Basrah. The United States has started to pull their forces and diplomats out ‎of Iraq. This was also a message that if the United States does any attack in the Persian ‎Gulf, the entire Middle East will become a war ground. Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Israel and the ‎Arab countries in the Gulf will all turn into battlefields and this would be the most dangerous ‎battlefield in the world.
