He said,” International Monetary Fund, World Trade Organization and other importance organizations are all controlled by Zionists who make the decision for Muslims.”
He added,” We should look towards Mecca while we are looking towards Moscow and Beijing to decide for us; therefore, we have lost our reference.”
He called on Muslims to organize themselves and be united and demanded the Muslim rulers to practically pursue Islamic solidarity.

He warned of the crises challenging the world of Islam urging the Islamic countries to mobilize the youths in the face of these challenges.
