Of course! Who else could be behind it except those whom the Qur’an designates as “the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers” (5:82)?
“Ayatollah Khamenei blames Israel and US for Egypt turmoil,” by Ariel Ben Solomon of the Jerusalem Post, August 17:
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is placing the blame for Egypt’s political turmoil on Jerusalem and Washington.
The Shi”ite religious leader took to his official Twitter account on Saturday, to attack Egypt’s former leader Hosni Mubarak and his relations with Israel and the US.
“Mubarak’s collaboration w/ Israel&US made Egyptians feel humiliated so they made a #revolution&Zionists reacted against this revolution now,” he tweeted.
He pointed out that Egyptians acted against Israel in the past, saying “#Egypt was 1st country that entered into war w/ #Zionists for Palestinians.”
Khamenei also seemed to imply a parallel between current army chief Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Mubarak, tweeting that Mubarak “was not a #freedom fighter or an anti-Zionist, but a servant to the Zionists.”
In another tweet earlier this month he stated that the “Zionist regime” is behind the turmoil, not only in Egypt, but in all of the Arab countries. “Muslims must beware,” the tweet concluded.
Also earlier this month, Khamenei tweeted that the “#Zionist regime sit and watch the situation of #Egypt w/ satisfaction.” A link in the text goes to a cartoon image of a group of American political leaders laughing hysterically at the turmoil in Egypt….
