Khamenei, that greasy Islamophobe, somehow has gotten the crazy, bigoted, Islamophobic idea that the “Arab Spring” does not herald a flowering of democracy, human rights, freedom and pluralism in the Middle East, but represents rather a resurgence of political Islam, which will result in the establishment of Islamic states and a new jihad against Israel. How did such a venomous Islamophobe become top dog in the Islamic Republic?
“Imam Khamenei: Islamic Awakening pointed at Zionism,” from the Ahlul Bayt News Agency, October 3 (thanks to Twostellas):
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei underscores Muslim vigilance against enemy efforts to generate ethnic and religious discord, noting that the ongoing Islamic Awakening in the region is pointedly directed against arrogance and Zionism.
Addressing a Monday gathering of cultural and executive officers in charge of Iranian pilgrims to the annual Hajj pilgrimage in the capital city of Tehran, the Leader cautioned against persisting and intensifying enemy ploys to sow division among Muslim masses since they have been the main target of the recent regional uprisings as part of the Islamic Awakening wave sweeping countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
