Iran's Supreme Leader Blames US & Zionists For Samarra Blasts
The message at Friday prayers must have hit home…
After prayers today in Tehran, the hardliners hit the streets and torched the US and UK flags (notice the banner in the background) ISNA.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in a message to condole Muslims on the terrorist attacks on the shrines of the Shiite Muslims’ 10th and 11th Imams in Samara, Iraq stressed that the devilish plot had been mainly devised by the intelligence services of occupiers and Zionists.
The Leader further called on the entire world Muslims, specially Iraqi Shiites and Sunnites to maintain vigilance in the face of the dangerous policies of the enemies for sowing seeds of discord among Muslims and to show self restraint and maintain solidarity more than before.
He reiterated that no matter whether the big crime has been carried out by the remnants of Ba’th party of the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein or other deceived individuals and groups, “there is no doubt that the intelligence services of occupiers and Zionists have been the main designers of this devilish plot.”
He reiterated that the occupying forces are instigating the disturbances in Iraq and leaving enough space for terrorist movements in order to justify the ongoing illegitimate occupation of the country and to debilitate the genuine popular government of Iraq.
