Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday said all Muslims should mobilize their resources to uproot Zionism.

”World Muslims should forge unity in their struggle with bullying powers, and by the time that the Zionist usurpers commit crimes through occupation and vandalism,” he said during a speech to the 26th international conference on Islamic unity. “It is not advisable to sit idle and take no action.”

The only leader who can guide the Muslim world is the guidelines of Prophet Muhammad, he added.

“All differences and discords among Muslims have roots in our misunderstanding of Holy Quran and guidelines of Prophet Mohammad. Today we need leadership similar to the prophet to get the Muslim world united,” the Iranian president added.

Mr. Ahmadinejad criticized the management of the global economy, led by the U.S., which he claims transfers the wealth of world nations into the pockets of certain governments.

“Enemies of humanity claim they are administering the world,” Mr. Ahmadinejad concluded. “They claim to be advocates of freedom and democracy around the world, but under such circumstances, they should not say that they advocate freedom of Muslims. They must call for liberation of all world nations as well as the U.S. people from the rein of Zionists.”
