"With an inquisitive look at the past decades, we see that a big backward movement has taken place in the states of this region, which was accompanied by the emergence of new and different concepts, particularly in the last decades, foremost among which is the concept of the new world order, or globalization as some call it. It is something different from the world order. But we see there is a mix, knowingly or unknowingly, between the two terms. Globalization which is a political, economic and cultural case, is not new. Islam, since its emergence, has crossed geographical borders and penetrated the various nations and cultures. But it did not cancel them, rather it asserted commitment to the homeland and nationhood, building this commitment on sound foundations that are, to a large extent, different from what we see in our current case. Consequently, the hardships and the negative aspects from which we suffer at present are not an absolute result of globalization, which could be a case full of positive aspects if it rested on justice and equality as Islam rests on, in addition to the other principles of Islam."

" The New World order in its literal sense is not like this. ‘’ World’’ is understood as the participation of all world countries and their agreement on a certain way or method for running the affairs of this world in a manner that realizes their interests without exception. What we see today, however, and what we experienced during the past few years is not a world order; it is the order of a state or a few states on this planet, and the rest are mere states swimming within this world order., Some of them float to the surface with difficulty, and must continually prove their good will, obedience and commitment. They are always wrong and are required to atone for their sins. Others have sunk to the bottom to stay there until further notice. Thus, what conforms to the desires of those states has become democracy and justice, and what realizes their interests is human rights human rights and civilization."
