Imam Khomeini warned about dangers of Israeli expansionism

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic repeatedly through his historic speeches and messages pointed out the danger of Israeli expansionism..

Imam also through his historic speeches and messages said that Israel would not be satisfied with its present boundary, and he informed the people that any kind of denial or cover-up by Israel of this aim was merely done to deceive public opinion in the Islamic world and allow it to pursue its step-by-step policy to achieve its ultimate aim.

If this warning of Imam's alone had been understood properly, the way for the various conciliatory plans - which naively sought to make Israel the captive of international agreements and resolutions and, at the cost of giving it most of the occupied lands, obtain a kind of limited self rule in a corner of Palestine - would have been blocked. 

From the very beginning, he introduced the Islamic aspect and the ideological dimension of the struggle with Israel as the most effective factor in the movement for mobilising the oppressed Palestinian nation and attracting support for them from the Islamic ummah.

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic considered other methods of struggle, such as reliance on Arab nationalism and nationalist views along with other imported and non-Islamic ideologies, as a departure from the path of struggle for the freedom of Quds.

Imam Khomeini, leader of the contemporary Muslim world,  had a clear insight into the internal problems besetting the Islamic world, amongst them the weakness, inability or subordinate nature of some of the heads of Islamic countries.

Consequently, Imam Khomeini used to stress the importance of public knowledge and awareness in the Islamic world stemming from the principles of belief and the ummah's common faith and culture, and of avoiding sectarian differences.

Imam called on the heads of the Muslim governments to accept this approach too, and believed that as long as the governments were of the same mind as their people and went along with Muslim public opinion and demand, they were to be entrusted with the authority of leadership and with the responsibility for guiding the struggle, otherwise the Muslim nations should do to them what the Muslim nation of Iran did to the Shah.
