You might almost get the idea that Brigadier General Qolamhossein Qeib-parvar thinks that the conflict between Iran and the West has something to do with Islam. But Barack Obama and so very many other authorities assure us that this is not the case — Brigadier General Qolamhossein Qeib-parvar must be wrong, no?
“Iranian General: Obama, EU Leaders Should Convert to Islam For Peace,” TheTower, December 29, 2014:
A general in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), stipulated on Saturday, that President Barack Obama, as well as leaders of the European Union (EU) should convert to Islam in order for there to be peace between the United States and Iran to be possible. The report that has been carried by Al-Arabiya in Arabic has been translated in other outlets.
Brigadier General Qolamhossein Qeib-parvar speaking on Saturday at a local conference commemorating Kazerun martyrs said “There are only two things that would end enmity between us and the US. Either the US president and EU leaders should convert to Islam and imitate the Supreme Leader, or Iran should abandon Islam and the Islamic revolution.”
EU or US leaders would not turn Muslim, he observed, adding “If they are not going to turn Muslim, we are not going to abandon Islam or the revolution either. But I do not know why some people believe that some day we will make peace with the US and start relations with them.”
Because they so desperately wish it were true.
