TEHRAN (IQNA) – The president of Algeria’s High Islamic Council said the biggest danger threatening the Muslim Ummah (community) is the racist Zionist ideology advocated by some Christian denominations.


Addressing the opening ceremony of the 35th International Islamic Unity Conference, Bu Abdullah Al-Ghulam Allah said this ideology has been growing in some Christian communities, including in the United States.

He referred to former US president Donald Trump as one of those who supports this ideology, adding that he was the one that relocated the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds.

The scholar said one of the manifestations of this ideology is that its advocates praise certain Muslim countries’ close ties with the Zionist regime but seek to undermine close friendship among Islamic nations like Iran and Algeria.

He called on Muslims to stay away from this ideology that seeks to “Zionize” Islam as it has “Zionized” some Christians.  

Elsewhere in his remarks, Al-Ghulam Allah stressed the need for Islamic Ummah’s vigilance and awakening and make the most of its human, economic and geographical capabilities and assets.

The 35th International Conference on Islamic Unity got under way on Tuesday morning in Tehran with the participation of Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi and a number of Iranian and foreign Muslim scholars.

This edition of the event is being held both virtually and in person with a limited number of guests due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

“Islamic Empathy and Sympathy and Avoidance of Tensions and Conflicts” is one of the main themes of the conference which will continue for five days in Tehran.

Just war and just peace, Palestine and Islamic resistance, Islamic fraternity and countering terrorism; mutual respect among Islamic schools of thought; and Ummah Wahida (united community) and a union of Islamic countries will be among the subjects of discussion, according to Shahriari.

230 guests including 52 scholars from 16 foreign countries have taken part in the conference, he said, adding that scholars will give a total of 514 speeches as 360 addresses will be made through video-conference.

The meetings of the conference will be held with maintaining health protocols. The event will wrap up on Saturday with participation of guests and Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf.
