Iran’s Leader: Enemies’ Chagrin behind blasphemous movie

ayatollah seyyed ali khamenei

Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said that the fact that the enemies have failed to keep pace with the Islamic Awakening in the region has prompted them to perpetrate crimes such as insulting Prophet Muhammad.

The film, which insults Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), was produced in California, cost $5 million, and was financed with the help of more than 100 Jewish donors.

“Nations that have experienced anti-Islam hegemonic and Zionist policies have pointed a finger of blame at the United States and a number of European countries, and the leaders of these countries should prevent such insane actions in order to prove that they are not accomplices in this great crime,”‌ he noted.

“The leaders of hegemonic systems claim that they were not involved in this incident, while they refrain from condemning this crime and do not meet their duties in regard to this great crime,”‌ he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei also said that the claim that preventing people from insulting Islam infringes on their right to free speech is a false statement, noting that the red lines set in the West that prevent questioning hegemonic principles refute such claims. He said that the protest demonstrations held near political and cultural centers of the United States illustrate the deep animosity of the people of various countries toward hegemonic and Zionist policies.
