Confirming this article posted by The American Thinker back in August, Iran's Majlis (Parliament) has stated their goal of a unified Islamic world.
'We strongly support unity among Islamic nations', the Majlis Speaker said, adding that such unity was critical in preserving the interests of the nations.
Of course the "interests" of the Iranian nation come first because the comment was made in context of Iran courting support from the most populous Muslim nation, Indonesia, for Iran's nuclear program.
Tehran is banking on Jakarta's support in a possible upcoming showdown over its controversial nuclear activities — a program which the West believes developing nuclear bombs. Indonesia is one of 35 governing board members of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that have the power to refer Tehran's nuclear dossier to the United Nations Security Council.
But, it is obvious the Iranian Majlis view their country, armed with nuclear weaponry, to be the leader of this unity of Islamic nations.
