Ayatollah Mohammad Imami-Kashani says that the Islamic Republic of Iran is founded upon Islam. So this bloody and repressive regime is an example of what Islamic law brings to a country? Surely then the Ayatollah Mohammad Imami-Kashani must be a misunderstander of Islam! For if Iran really were built upon Islam, it would be peaceful and tolerant, not genocide-minded, threatening, authoritarian, and violent — right? Right?
“Cleric warns of plots against Islamic establishment,” from the Tehran Times, October 31:
A leading Iranian cleric has warned against the enemy’s plots to damage the Islamic establishment and called for proper counter measures to be taken.
–We must identify where the enemy seeks to penetrate the Islamic establishment and then counter it,– said Tehran’s Interim Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Mohammad Imami-Kashani.
He touched upon Iran’s great achievements in different fields saying, –We must realize that aside from enemy media outlets, the rest of the world supports the Islamic and scientific movements in Iran.–
—When science is founded upon faith and Islam, no one will be able to stop it,– added the cleric.
–History has shown that the Islamic civilization, which incorporates science, faith and effort, was taking over the world, when certain parties stepped in and laid claim to the achievements of Muslims. They proclaimed themselves as the owners of the world and enslaved Muslim countries,– he said.
Those darn Zionists. That little sliver that comprises Israel is a splinter in the foot of the Islamic world, hobbling it when otherwise it would be “taking over the world”!
–The Islamic establishment and the Islamic Republic is an establishment built upon the foundation of Islam…and it has made achievements,– he added.
Ayatollah Kashani, who serves as a member of the Assembly of Experts, went on ot say that –it is a pity to see that the rapidly-developing Islamic civilization, which the world has its eyes on, questioned.–
–Criticism that is intended to help make progress is good, but views that are expressed to belittle (the) others are not acceptable in any way.–
