Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned the world Muslims against the plots hatched by the enemies to sow discord among Muslim nations and followers of different Islamic faiths.
The Leader made the remarks addressing a meeting with cultural and executive staff and personnel of Hajj in Tehran on Monday.
"Enemies of Islam and Muslims will make more attempts (during the Hajj rituals in Mecca) this year to foment sectarian and ethnic strife among Muslims because the Islamic awakening is waving its sharp point and menacing the world arrogance and Zionism," Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Muslim world is preparing for this year's Hajj as it is experiencing unique developments caused by the growing waves of Islamic Awakening.
Since the beginning of 2011, a wave of revolutions and anti-government uprisings has swept the region from the Middle-East to the North of Africa.
In January, a revolution in Tunisia ended the 23-year ruling of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
In February, another Arab revolution led to the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak after three decades of his authoritarian rule.
Other revolutions are erupting in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain, while other anti-government unrests have just started in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Kuwait and Algeria.
The United States and certain other western countries have adopted a double-standard approach towards the popular protests against the dictatorial regimes in the region.
Political observers believe that people's uprisings in Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, Jordan, Yemen and Libya are the result of growing "Islamic awakening" in the Middle-Eastern countries and have remarkably weakened support for the Zionist regime in the region.
