Todays Weekly Friday Hate highlights provided by Provisional Friday Prayer Leader of Tehran Hojjatoleslam Ahmad Khatami
On the Knighthood of Salman Rushdie:
Khatami then focussed on the British Queen’s decorating of the disbeliever Salman Rushdie with a Knight Medal, as a sign of Britain’s direct confrontation with 1.5 billion Muslims around the globe.
He said, “The old, and decrepit British colonialism that claims to be the standard bearer of the human rights is now awarding a wretched bankrupt fellow that has insulted the sanctities of 1.5 billion Muslims.” Posing the question, “Is that the meaning of the human rights and the Western Civilization of yours?” he added, “The old and feeble British Government had better realize now that it is no longer an empire, but an ear-ringed slave of the Americans.” Pointing out that the Islamic movement is gaining momentum around the globe, he said, “Under such conditions the height medal of honor of Britain is given to a wretched fellow that knows no art at all.” Khatami added, “The Islamic World is unanimously protesting against that new insult, and in Islamic Iran, too, the verdict issued against Salman Rushdie is still in effect, and irrevocable.
He emphasized, “The British had better know they are for sure the losers in this scene.”
