(June 28, 2022 / JNS) The Grand Mufti of Oman, Ahmed bin Hamad Al-Khalili, said in an interview on Qatar’s Al Jazeera that the Taliban’s “victory” over the United States was a miracle.
“We saw a child from the Taliban learning the Quran with a gun hanging next to him[;] [The Taliban] combine the Quran with the gun, and this is how they won [against the U.S.].”
According to the report by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Khalili also said peace agreements with Israel are “nothing but a waste of time,” and the only way to “take back” the land is through resistance.
“I do not think that Oman has compromised with any regard to the Palestinian cause,” he added.
When asked about former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Oman in 2018, the mufti replied that the visit was political.
