Ali Akbar Velayati is Khamenie's Advisor for International Affairs.
Last Saturday June 11th Velayati warned:
IN WEST ASIA GENERALLY
"Enemies, including the US, are trying to undermine Muslims' progress through
 increasing political, military and economic pressures,
 disintegrating Islamic countries,
 imposing war on them and
 dissolving popular governments."
IN WEST ASIA SPECIFICALLY
"Enemy provocations to stir sectarian strife in the regional [West Asian] countries is a major threat to and vulnerability of the Islamic awakening movements."
The Superpower aims to enslave the whole world. It looks at "Muslims' progress" from a quite different angle than does Velayati.
Here's an item from "New Scholarly Books" at page B17 of The Chronicle Review predated June 17th:
"A CONVERGENCE OF CIVILIZATIONS: THE TRANSFORMATION OF MUSLIM SOCIETIES AROUND THE WORLD, by Youseff Courbage and Emmanuel Todd(Columbia University Press; 134 pages; $35).
"[The book] Uses data on literacy, birth control, and other phenomena to document a trend towards modernity and secularization in Muslim socities; draws parallels with the history of Christianity."
1st. Transformation of societies = The overthrow of societies = SOCIOCIDE.
The Superpower aims to enslave the whole world, not just Muslims. To accomplish that task, its main method is sociocide, which embraces
 increasing political, military, economic, and ideological pressures,
 disintegrating all countries,
 imposing war on them,
 dissolving independent governments, AND
 whatever else it takes!
2d. Modernity = Wall Street-style capitalism + Terror-state imperialism.
Secularization = Superpower atheism + The collapse of humanity.
History of Christianity = Pitbull --> Lapdog.
How did that happen? Sectarian strife is a good-enough answer.
3d. The Superpower will do anything (whatever it takes!) to get its way. With money or with smiles The Superpower encourages a small group in Iran to
buddy up to The Superpower's puppet Afghanistan,
buddy up to The Superpower's puppet Iraq,
buddy up to The Superpower's puppet Pakistan
--THEREBY BETRAYING BAHRAIN AND IRAN.
