Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said some Muslim countries are being humiliated by arrogant western powers because of their departure from the teachings of the Qur'an, which calls for Muslim unity.
"Muslim countries have been plagued with the disease of indignity because of their failure to resort to the Qur'an," the Leader told participants of the 35th International Holy Qur'an Competition in Tehran on Thursday, his official website reported.
Ayatollah Khamenei's remarks were made in reference to US President Donald Trump who took aim at western allies in the Middle East on April 24, saying that they would crumble within "a week" without the United States so they should pay for American protection and deploy their own troops in war-torn Syria.
As French President Emmanuel Macron visited Washington, Trump said at a news conference, "Countries that are in the area, some of which are immensely wealthy, would not be there except for the United States and, to a lesser extent, France."
"They wouldn't last a week. We are protecting them. They have to now step up and pay for what is happening," he said, according to the Washington Post.
