Press Shia – Ayatollah Seyfi-Mazandarani said, “It isn’t acceptable for officials of the system of the Islamic Republic to refer to the statements of the Leader but to act in complete contradiction to them.”

Press Shia Agency – Speaking during his ethics class, Ayatollah Ali-Akbar Seyfi-Mazandarani said that sometimes people in politics become involved in shouting slogans and the result of politics without religion is hypocrisy and without religion, politics is the same as hypocrisy.

The teacher in the Islamic Seminary of Qom pointed to the hypocritical and arrogant policies of the United States an added that it’s possible that the Dajjal or Antichrist which is mentioned in Islamic narrations, could be the US.

“In Islamic narrations, the Antichrist is said to have a single eye on its forehead. This doesn’t mean that the Antichrist will be a man with such attributes but the Antichrist is someone who is dishonest and represents duplicity and hypocrisy,” he explained.

“The head of an Islamic government should not act like American politicians,” he added.

Ayatollah Seyfi-Mazandarani added the US has taken all the truths in the world as a joke and treats all values as playthings. If the US speaks the truth, values, justice and humanity, they speak of them as if they are weapons and playthings to use to implement their political interests.

He said that in their statements, the arrogant powers speak of justice and humanity in the best manner but in reality, they act in complete contradiction to their statements. In the system of the Islamic Republic of Iran, officials speak about the Supreme Leader but don’t act in regard to what he said about the negotiations with the US.

Ayatollah Khamenei had said negotiations with the US would be ineffectual and disastrous but gave them his blessing.

“It isn’t acceptable for officials of the system of the Islamic Republic to refer to the statements of the Leader but to act in complete contradiction to them,” he stressed.

His Eminence said that remains to be seen how Muslims can counter the arrogant powers and added, “Negotiations which lead to the fate of the Muslims being given to hands of the arrogant leaders, who have engaged in tyranny, oppression and aggression, isn’t acceptable in the light of Islamic law.”

Ayatollah Seyfi-Mazandarani said that currently, the enemies are using the JCPOA as an excuse to impose a variety of sanctions. The arrogant powers don’t accept and also deny the right of the Islamic Republic to have missiles to defend itself from others.

He said that Ayatollah Khamenei commanded that the negotiating team must negotiate on the basis of Islamic law and within the red lines of the Islamic system and said, “If someone isn’t committed to Wilayat al-Faqih and only shouts their slogans, can he be considered on the path of Wilayat al-Faqih? The followers of the Supreme Leader must act in accordance his commands and if they act against the Leader, they has acted with impudence and has rebelled.”
