Supreme Leader Blames US, Zionists for Anti-Islam Movie

Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Thursday blamed the US and the Zionists for the sacrilege of Muslims’ Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in a movie made by an American-Israeli man, and called on Washington to punish those behind the blasphemous act.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the Iranian supreme leader said the US and Zionists’ hands can be seen behind the move, and said if Washington statesmen claim to be not involved in this sacrilege of Islam and Islamic values, they should punish those who have designed and orchestrated the move.

“The filthy hand of the enemies of Islam once again revealed its deep-rooted malice by insulting the Grand Prophet [Mohammad] (PBUH) and with an insane and deplorable measure showed the fury of the evil Zionists at the daily-increasing radiance of Islam and Holy Qur’an in the present world.

“Behind this evil move lie the antagonistic policies of the Zionists and the US and other heads of the global arrogance, who in their vain delusions want to knock down the Islamic sanctities from their lofty position in the eyes of the young generations in the world of Islam and to extinguish their religious sentiments. Had they not backed the previous links in this evil chain, namely Salman Rushdie, the Danish cartoonist, and the US pastors who burned the Holy Qur’an and had they not made orders for [production of] tens of anti-Islam movies to companies affiliated to the Zionist capitalists, things would not have lead to this great and unforgivable sin today,” said the statement.

“The number one suspects in this crime are Zionism and the US. If the American politicians are honest that they had no role, then they must punish those who committed this heinous crime and their financial backers, who have wrenched the hearts of Muslim nations, in proportion to this great crime,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Innocence of Islam

The violence that is going on today in September 2012 in the Middle East relates to the anti-Muslim film produced and directed by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula in America. But I fear he was not the mastermind behind the whole ordeal. Somehow racists and haters of Islam, could have easily influenced Nakoula while imprisoned. And he then could have been influenced further by other white anti-religious sources.

That mastermind as far as I can tell beyond the dissemination and exploitation of the evils the film represents… is likely to be Pastor Terry Jones, whose burning of copies of the Quran previously led to deadly riots around the world. (Wikipedia: Innocence of Muslims; Subparagraph: Screening and promotion)

Jones a Southerner and from Florida is bent on destroying the religious values of the Islamic region and its Quran for the sake of hate and religious bigotry. No one knows and certainly this white man, pretending to be a Christian and man of God, if Muhammad Ali was not visited by an Archangel. But indeed that the Quran is a book written for the sake of spreading divine Love and the word, that a God does exist and one of his names is Allah.

It is obvious that racism, hate, vindictiveness, and religious deception, are tools by which anyone intolerant of the religion of others will use to incite violence in the targeted religious group, and then claim they are irreligious, violent, and evil because they lash out in anger in defense of their faith.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula’s criminal record in the U.S. is not a good one. He has been imprisoned for several white collar crimes and thus not to be trusted. And surely not to believed by anyone who is religiously sensible.

According to a paper at Wikipedia titled ‘Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria’, it states, and I quote, “The position of the Copts began to improve early in the 19th century under the stability and tolerance of the Muhammad Ali Dynasty. The Coptic community ceased to be regarded by the state as an administrative unit. In 1855 the jizya tax was abolished. Shortly thereafter, the Copts started to serve in the Egyptian army.[13]”

This certainly teaches us that the prophet Muhammad supported religious tolerance. That his message did not necessarily exclude other religions, even though, the nature of war by the prophet Muhammad was grounded in violence. But well… the nature of all wars is violence to say the least… including the Crusades, ordained and carried out by the Pope and the Catholic Church.

I believe this is one of those cases where American racists are seeking to influence public opinion further with this untimely event to bait the coming general election with the expectation that Republicans have the real interests of the American people at heart.

This political deceptive act and I believe it is one… has been executed in order to stall for time, to come up with more convincing means to smear the Democrats and bring down the Obama administration by making Obama appear as a buffoon on foreign policy and out of touch with U.S. positioning in the global community, is not without some reflection.

Moreover, I wouldn’t be afraid to say, that I’m of the mindset, that Mr. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, has allowed himself and his family to be used by conservative right-wing racists.

I could be wrong… but I dare anyone to prove it….
