The Scholars of Iraq confronting the Dominance of the Infidels
Ayatollah Bahjat said:
"God knows how many Shia scholars in Iraq and Najaf entered the front to fight and confront England, even people like Sheikh Shari’at and Ayatollah Sayyid Mohsen Hakeem entered the front. The scholars were willing for the Sunni Ottoman Empire and their nominal Islam to remain in power; they preferred it to Kufr (Britain). But it’s a pity that some of the Islamic states such as Andalus (Muslim Spain) and Tripoli have been divided into three parts: Islam, Christianity and Kufr. Also the government of Caucasus that some of its cities used to be parts of Iran, and were separated from Iran at the time of Fath Ali Shah, now (before the collapse of the Soviet union) they are surely under the control of a Kafir and communist government."
