Here we go again: Islamic apologists in the West and non-Muslim Western analysts insist that jihadists and Islamic supremacists misunderstand the Religion of Peaceâ„¢. Meanwhile, the jihadists and Islamic supremacists insist that it is their opponents who are misunderstanding the Religion of War. “Enemies of Islam are exploiting religion and morality: Leader,” from the Tehran Times, June 27 (thanks to all who sent this in):
TEHRAN — Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says that the enemies of Islam are exploiting religion and morality.
It is essential that efforts are made to enlighten public opinion and maintain vigilance in Iranian society and the Islamic world because the enemies of Islam are exploiting religion and morality as their tools, Ayatollah Khamenei stated in a speech to a large gathering of people commemorating the birth anniversary of Imam Ali (AS) in Tehran on Saturday.
When they seek to deceive the non-Muslims, the arrogant powers make use of issues such as human rights and democracy, and when they are trying to influence Muslim public opinion, they exploit Islam and the Quran, the Leader noted….
“With God’s grace, the Iranian youths will see a day when the arrogant enemies will feel they no longer have the ability to bully the Iranian nation,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
“The era of the hegemonistic powers freely threatening other nations is over. The Iranian nation is now recognized as a powerful nation in the world,” he said.
He went on to say that the powers of global arrogance, and above all the United States, have been disgraced in the eyes of the international community.
They are no longer able to prevent Iran from pursuing the path it has chosen, the Leader observed.
Or maybe Obama’s America doesn’t even really want to.
