“Freedom of expression is just an excuse for the West. They are fearful of people’s interest in Islam … and that is why they resort to such insults,” Vahid Ahmadi, chairman of the parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee said.

He was referring to the recent publication of a blasphemous cartoon of Islam’s Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) by the French weekly magazine, Charlie Hebdo…

…Ahmadi underlined that the West has been inciting Islamophobia to prevent western people from getting attracted to Islam.

“They (westerners) do everything they can to stop the spread of Islam,” he stated, adding that insulting Islamic sanctities and giving rise to terrorist groups like ISIL to tarnish the image of Islam are among the measures taken by the West to that end…

So Islamophobia really is fear and not “hate”?

People need to keep this and other insane garbage from Iranian sites mind when reading Ayatollah’s latest “peace offering.”

    He has a white turban, that signifies 2nd tier status.

      Yep. Not a descendent of Mo.

        Claiming to be “Sayyid” requires only the personal conviction that one is descended from Mohammed. No family records or documentation are required.

    What the West fears is the BRICS economic arrangement and what Israel fears is any strong Muslim nation and why Iraq was launched. All strong Muslim nations have to be eliminated and the US and Israel work within that framework. Remember the lies about WMDs, the lies about Hussein wanting to build a nuclear weapon, the lies about Hussein’s regime being linked with 9/11, and the list goes on. The average person needs to document the lies and show to the mainstream class how many times we have been lied to and simply demand a system which is truthful, based on facts, works for all and does not allow the mainstream to benefit from the system at the expense of us. That is what we must ask for because quite frankly the system is broken and that is why I won’t support any war unless there are clear facts and they have to be documented and proven by independent experts.

    • BBT – I have seen your posts before. Funny how your discourse is always pro-Arab, anti-American. Here, you call for truth and facts, but you certainly are selective in your truths and facts. The truth and fact you need to consider is that the whole Western world is currently under aggression by the whole Muslim world. The war is on, whether you support it or not.

        I agree that the war with Iran will happen because the West is just so in Israel’s corner and the fact is America has launched 50+ wars since 1945 and millions have had to die for America’s actions. I wonder why you defend their aggression yet they claim to be a Christian nation? The fact is there is no proof of a nuclear program and those claims have been around since the 80’s. Lies have been used to sell the wars. Also, the West has proven they are the aggressors and Iran is an independent nation. The West hates BRICS and I feel that governments are having a hard time these days selling wars and their flawed economic programs.

        What is amazing is how libertarian conservatives claim to want to distrust government but love how their parties go to war and trust everything say.

        • BBT – In Iraq, WMD’s were not found (officially, at least) because they were moved to Syria – where they (chemicals) were later found and (we are told) neutralized. As regards Iran, there is zero doubt that it is developing Nukes – your doubt is pure fantasy or misinformation. Your comments in reply all confirm your anti-West pro-Islam stance. The West doesn’t love to go to war – it is forced to by the lunatic behavior of Islamic nations and groups.
