A political analyst tells Press TV Americans are becoming more aware that Leader of the Islamic Revolution Seyyed Ali Khamenei is more trustworthy than their own leaders.
“I think that more and more Americans are actually going to be coming around to accepting that what the Supreme Leader of Iran is saying is a lot more honest and truthful and realistic than what they are hearing from their own leaders here in the US,” Dr. Kevin Barrett said in a Press TV interview.
The analyst, who is with the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance, made the remarks in reaction to Ayatollah Khamenei’s condemnation of the death of innocent people in a twin bomb blast in Boston.
“Following Islamic logic, the Islamic Republic of Iran opposes any blast or the killing of innocents be it in Boston in the US or Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq or Syria and condemns it,” Ayatollah Khamenei said on Wednesday.
“The US is waging terrorist warfare against people all over the world and then when something like this happens in Boston, the media generates a huge outcry, whipping people up into a kind of a xenophobic frenzy blaming it on some others,” Barrett added.
The analyst however, noted that Americans are now more understanding of their government’s hypocrisy, as polls show that “one-third of Americans” do not support “US wars of aggression”.
On Monday, the twin bombings in Boston near the finish line of the city’s annual cross-country marathon race killed three people and injured over 130 others.
