Nations are aware of the Islamophobic policies of arrogant powers and Zionists and are pointing the finger at the US and certain European governments, and leaders of these countries must prove that they were not accomplices in this big crime in practice by preventing such crazy measures.” Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali KhameneiThe Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the US and some European countries must practically prove that they have played no part in the production of the anti-Islam movie, “not just in words.” “Nations are aware of the Islamophobic policies of arrogant powers and Zionists and are pointing the finger at the US and certain European governments, and leaders of these countries must prove that they were not accomplices in this big crime in practice by preventing [the repetition of] such crazy measures,” said the Leader on Monday. The Leader pointed to the feeling of frustration among the enemies of Islam in their confrontation with the Iranian nation and the sweeping wave of Islamic Awakening, emphasizing that this issue has made enemies of the Muslim world take such crazy measures as the recent move.
Ayatollah Khamenei stated that leaders of hegemonic systems claim that they have played no role in the production of the anti-Islam film without condemning this crime and fulfilling their duties towards it.The Leader said the hegemonic powers are influenced by anti-Islam motivations and this is why they have done nothing to prevent insult to Islam and will not do it in the future. “Does anybody believe that preventing insult to Islam and its sanctities is [considered as] against freedom of speech in countries where any move against hegemonic principles is dealt with firmly and violently?”, the Leader questioned. Ayatollah Khamenei added that massive rallies targeting the US political and social centers in various nations prove their profound hatred towards arrogant and Zionist policies of the United States. The Leader expressed confidence that Muslim nations will emerge victorious in confrontation with the arrogant powers. Fury over the US-made anti-Islam film produced by an Israeli-American has spread across the Muslim world, with protesters marching on the US embassies and torching the US flags. The blasphemous film has been made through Jewish donations totaling USD 5 million. SF/SS/AZ
