"The U.S. is doomed to collapse someday as the former Soviet Union did." .
Ayatollah Abdullah Javadi Amoli, a Senior Shia cleric, received two Russian cultural activists, Rajab Safarov, Head of the Center for Contemporary Iran Studies in Russia and Alexander Prokhanov, member of the secretariat of the Writers Union of the Russian Federation, in his office in the Iranian city of Qom on Sunday, February 26.
During the meeting, Ayatollah Javadi answered a question on the content of late Imam Khomeini's (ra) letter to Mikhail Gorbachev, former General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and said, "The voice of Islam which has been spread by Iran throughout the world is a call that attracts every human heart; the prophets were appointed by Allah (swt) in order to deliver the divine message to all mankind."
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian cleric reiterated that the fate of the U.S. is going to be the same as what happened to the former Soviet Union; "The U.S. is doomed to collapse someday as the former Soviet Union did," Hawzah News quoted him as saying.
Elaborating on the issue of apocalypse, Ayatollah Javadi Amoli remarked, "The creator of this world will definitely decide its end and see it fulfill its purpose; the world will await the last savior who is a perfect human being in all fronts, Imam al-Asr (May God hasten his Reappearance) will be accompanied by Jesus (as) on the day of his arrival to save the world from all the corruption and vice."
In the end, the Shia cleric extended his best regards to the people of Russia and asked the Russian figures to inform their people on the philosophy of creation of the universe; he asserted, "This precise and subtle scientific system of the universe most certainly needs a creator who is God Almighty; the human soul is immortal. If the world moves toward a more rational and just state, then the people would benefit from a peaceful cohabitation. This is the true meaning of global human rights."
