The evil ‘isms’ plaguing the world: imperialism, Zionism, Christian Zionism, and Wahhabism.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has called on the Muslim world to join forces and bring the Saudi regime to justice for its atrocities in Muslim countries of the Middle East.
“The countries of the region and the Muslim world should take concerted efforts aimed at resolving the existing problems and punishing the Saudi government,” Rouhani said on Wednesday.
The Iranian chief executive highlighted Riyadh’s support for terrorism, adding that the regime is “practically spilling the blood of Muslims in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen through its crimes in the region.”
The kingdom, where radical Wahhabism is freely preached by its clerics, is accused of providing ideological and financial support to the Takfiri terrorists, who have been sowing death and destruction in Iraq and Syria in recent years.
The Saudi regime has also been waging an indiscriminate military campaign against Yemen since last year, killing around 10,000 people in the Arab world’s most impoverished nation.
Rouhani further lambasted Saudi authorities for their “tactlessness and ineptitude” in overseeing the Hajj pilgrimage last year, when thousands of Muslim pilgrims, including 465 Iranians, died in a human crush.
Rouhani further slammed Saudi rulers for creating obstacles to prevent the dispatch of Iranian pilgrims to this year’s Hajj rituals.
Hajj serves as a time when the Muslim world’s interests and unity should be paraded to the world, but the Saudi kingdom, “has even stopped short of verbally apologizing to Muslims” for the Mina tragedy, Rouhani added.
