Leader warns of hijacking uprisings
BFnews: The Leader said in a meeting with ambassadors and representatives of Islamic countries in Tehran on Monday: The elite's guidance is needed to assist the people of nations to prevent the arrogant apparatus from hijacking the glorious popular movements [of the Muslim world] and steal their uprising.

He went on to say that the dominant powers' plots against Islamic countries have created discord among Muslim nations, calling on the Muslim nations and governments to become vigilant and stop the “great Satan” [the US] from interfering in their destinies.

The Leader pointed out: If governments become united with their peoples, no power can take control of their nations.
