Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined the western nations’ growing tendency for Islam and Islamic values, and said that the US and European nations are disappointed with the capitalist system.

“Today the Islamic Republic’s words about the unfruitfulness of the Marxist system have been proved and the same thing is happening to the capitalist system,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing Sunni and Shiite clerics, theology students and teachers and jurisprudents in the Western Kermanshah province Wednesday night.

He also stressed the rising tides of Islamism in the world, and called on Islamic scholars to double their efforts to illuminate the concepts and values of Islam to the world people.

The Supreme Leader said that the Occupy Wall Street movement will bring down capitalism in America, underlining that the US administration could crack down, but would not be able to stop the movement.
