In an interview with IUVMPRESS, Mr Abdul Mahdi Abdul Hussein Al-Sharif, the head of the political bureau of Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq movement, insisted that the United States’ mischievous plots were not fulfilled.
Question: The President of the United States has always claimed that the world will become a safer place by assassinating Haj Qassem Soleimani. What do you think about this?
Answer: In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. We know that Trump has a wicked personality. But, thank God, the Islamic Republic raised the slogan of Islam. Iran’s Islamic path was followed by the martyrs of the Islamic Resistance, Haj Qasem Soleimani, and his brother, Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes. Indeed, the nations of Iran and Iraq are brothers, and both nations belong to Imam Hussein [PBUH].
Washington is afraid of exactly the union between Iran and Iraq. In answer to your question, I must say no, the world became a less safe place for the American occupiers. The Middle-East region and the world did not and will not become a safe place after the martyrdom of Haj Qasem Soleimani.
Question: After the martyrdom of Haj Qassem Soleimani, the Americans began the process of political normalization between the Zionist regime and the Arab states. Do you think there is a connection between these two events?
Answer: Yes. There must be a connection, but I must refer to the hadith of Imam Sajjad [PBUH], in which he said: Thank God that you made our enemies fools. Our enemies will not be able to achieve their goals despite all their efforts. All Islamic resistance groups have become more united today, and their allegiance to Imam Khamenei (as) has become stronger.
Question: How would you describe the character of Haj Qassem Soleimani?
Answer: I really cannot describe a great figure like Hajj Qassem because I cannot fathom the great personality such as that of General Haj Qassem Soleimani.
