Unity, only way to counter Takfiri, Zionist threats: Lebanese mufti
Beirut, Aug 23, The only means to deal with threats from Takfiri and Zionist terrorists is unity among the Muslims, a Lebanese grand mufti said here on Wednesday.
'Muslim brothers and sisters in Palestine are being attacked inhumanely by the Zionist regime, while the Islamic countries are involved in their internal disputes,' Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian said in a meeting with the visiting Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Jaberi-Ansari.
The grand mufti referred to the Zionist regime's state terrorism and Takfiri terrorist groups as two major threats to the world of Islam.
He further underlined that the Ulema (Muslim religious leaders) bear a heavy responsibility for fighting against those two threats.
Jaberi-Ansari arrived in Beirut on Aug 21 to express Iran's support for political and religious diversity and national unity in Lebanon.
