London-based Iranian opposition activist Dr. Abu Muntasir Al-Baloushi said in a May 20, 2022 show on the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Channel 9 (Turkey) that Iran should be reverted to its "Sunni days" and that it has only been a "curse" since it became Shiite. He criticized the "blood thirsty" IRGC and Iran's proxy militias in the region and said that the Arab countries should act against Iran in a fashion similar to how Iran acts against them. For more about Dr. Abu Muntasir Al-Baloushi, see MEMRI TV Clips Nos. 4871 and 1591.

Dr. Abu Muntasir Al-Baloushi: "The [Iranian] people want to topple this regime. They do not want this regime. The regime has canceled the subsidies on all the commodities, in order to feed its mercenary terrorists in the region. The regime's Shi'ite mercenaries, like the PMU and the Satanic Hizbullah, as well as some Palestinian forces, have entered [Iran] through Imam Khomeini International Airport, in order to quell the demonstrations. However, the people are angry at the regime, and they will use any opportunity to bring this regime down.


"The Shi'ite Rafidite forces support one another, but they all follow the "Supreme Wailer" [Khamenei], who calls himself "ruler of the Muslims." Why do the Shi'ite PMU, Satanic Hizbullah, and some Palestinian forces come to Iran? Because they need Iran to support them through the IRGC's so-called Qods Force. Who is fighting in Iraq, in Lebanon, and in Syria? A Shi'ite force that answers to Khamenei, whether the come from Afghanistan, Pakistan, or Arab countries.

"So why don't the Sunni countries learn the lesson and do the same thing? The Sunnis are suffocating Iran from all four directions. Iran is surrounded by Sunnis. So how come Turkey, the Taliban, Pakistan, and the Arab countries are not taking advantage of this Trump card? Because they do not think this way, and because America does not want any Sunni movement in the region.


"How come the Muslims in the region — Arabs and non-Arabs — do not support the Sunnis in Iran? The rulers might have political excuses, but what about the people?


"Most IRGC members are ideologically committed people, even though they have become thieves and merchants, who control Iran's economy and fate.


"They do not mind killing a million or two. This is a blood-thirsty branch of the jurisprudence. They have no qualms about killing people in order to reach power, because they believe in the nonsense of meeting that fictional Mahdi of theirs.

"That figment of their imagination, that Great Antichrist, who does not really exist, is more important to them than Allah, God forbid, like I always say.


"Believe me, even if, for instance, Israel or America were to attack Iran, the people would help them. Why? Because they hate this regime. I'm talking about the Shi'ites, not about the Sunnis. Like I always say, the Shi'ites hate this regime more than the Sunnis hate it.


"We must revert Iran to its Sunni days. When Iran was a Sunni country, it was the pearl of the Islamic world, but when it turned Shi'ite, it transformed into a curse for itself and for others."
