It's time for Muslims to set aside differences and unite in order to end conflicts in the Middle East!

This is what participants at the 4th edition of the International Conference of Expatriate Resistance Forces agreed upon.

The annual event, which brought together officials from across the Muslim world in the Iranian city of Damghan, seeks to highlight the efforts made by resistance movements in the region to counter threats posed by foreign intervention. 

The conference comes against the backdrop of popular protests in Iraq and Lebanon, where demonstrators demand economic reforms.

Delegates here believe there are traces of foreign interference in both countries, trying to derail the popular protests. 

The Yemeni Ansarullah Movement, which is fighting off the nearly five-year Saudi-led invasion, says Riyadh has not achieved its goal. 

Many believe only the enemies of the Muslim world are benefitting from the conflict in Yemen. 

Delegates at this conference say the US and its allies have long been using the policy of divide and rule in the region. They believe the US would leave the region only if political differences give way to religious commonalities.

Organizers of this conference say external actors in the Middle East, the US being on top of them, are trying to trigger political and religious differences to exploit the region's resources. They believe such conferences help cement ties between resistance forces in different countries to ultimately foil such attempts.
