Referring to the recent American movie desecrating Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)., Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei says that since the enemies feel backwardness against raging waves of the Islamic awakening, they take such insane and deplorable measures.
Addressing army cadets in Iran’s Northern port city of Noshahr on Monday, Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the American movie insulting the Grand Prophet [Mohammad] (PBUH), and affirmed that “nations are pointing the finger at the US and certain European governments because they know the anti-Islam policies of Zionism and the US.”
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution went on to say that “Leaders of these countries must prove in practice that they were not involved in this big crime by preventing such crazy measures.”
The Leader referred to the recent anti-Islam move as one of the enduring lessons of the history, pointing out that the Zionists and the US and other heads of the global arrogance claim that they were not involved in this deplorable move while they refuse to condemn this crime and fulfill their duties towards it.
In his message on Thursday (Sep 13) following the anti-Islam move, Ayatollah Khamenei stated that if the US politicians are honest in their claim of not being involved [in production of this film], [they] must bring the perpetrators of this hideous crime and their financial backers, who have wrenched the hearts of Muslim nations, to face a punishment proportionate to this great crime.
To prove that Western and US officials’ remarks, that “preventing insult to Islam is against freedom of speech”, are false, Supreme Leader pointed to some facts.
That there are clear red lines in the West to prevent any violation of the arrogance principle, is one of the facts.
At the end of his speech, he emphasized “without a doubt, the sun of Islam, in the arrogant powers confrontation with this divine religion, will shine more than ever and the victory would be for the Islamic Ummah.”
