Jalili criticizes West for not tolerating Islamic thoughts

Tehran, Jan 26, IRNA – A senior official at the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) on Monday censured nations with long history of civilization for not tolerating the flourishing Islamic thoughts which are getting momentum after the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
“Owners of five centuries of civilization deny righteousness and are afraid of the Islamic thoughts which are growing quickly inspired by the Islamic Revolution (of Iran),” Supreme Leader’s representative at the SNSC Saeed Jalili said in an address to a ceremony in the Iranian capital.

The ceremony was held at Tehran University’s Faculty of Law and Political Sciences to unveil a comprehensive document on the cases of human rights violation in Britain.

“Those who consider themselves as the Father of Freedom of Opinion are spending all within their reach to halt the spread of the Islamic thoughts,” the official said.

Referring to the nuclear talks between Iran and world big powers (US, Britain, France, Russia and China plus Germany), Jalili said, “They are not concerned about the number of Iran’s centrifuges which are monitored by the inspectors (of the International Atomic Energy Agency) but are fearful of expansion of the Islamic thoughts that would limit their power.”

Jalili stressed that the Iranian nation would not allow anyone to violate its rights.

Referring to the message sent by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei to the European and North American youth, Jalili said it was a “civilized move” through which the Leader told the West’s young generation that a new civilization has been formed which addresses human nature.

“Unfortunately, the new civilization is strongly under fire by those who deny the truth,” Jalili regretted.

On January 21, Ayatollah Khamenei issued a message addressed to the youth in Europe and North America in which he called on Western youngsters not to miss the opportunity to “gain proper, correct and unbiased understanding of Islam.”

Jalili said that Ayatollah Khamenei’s message was a valuable beginning” to echo the voice of the Islamic civilization to the European and the North American young generation.
