Since Hassan Rohani has assumed the post of President of the Islamic Republic of Iran the Instigators started following the events and programs of his new administration. In particular it is very interested in the technological changes of Iran. One of his articles on “Electronic Government” by Hassan Rohani, published in “Solidarity” World of Repubblica.it, has been translated and published on the official website of the Iranian Government.

On January 21, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei wrote a letter asking the European and North American youths not to judge Islam based on the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.

In his letter, Imam Khamenei urged Western youths to try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of the religion in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns.

In an e-mail interview with the Tasnim News Agency, Italian anthropologist Tiziana Ciavardini discussed the significance of the Supreme Leader’s letter.

Ciavardini is a cultural anthropologist, and the president of Italy’s Ancis Anthropology Forum.

Q – Regarding the recent letter by Iran’s Supreme Leader to the youth in Europe and North America, how could it be (more) effective in attracting those youths to real and authentic Islam?

A – What written in the letter is very true, we must learn from the real source. I hope that this letter could help the youth to study Islam as a religion, and lessen the bad propaganda against Islam.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that there had been a flood of misinformation about Islam in the West. Unfortunately, in western countries people who declare themselves as ‘expert’ on Islam sometimes are confused about understanding the religion. Even the one who tries to tarnish the image of Islam, most of the time doesn’t know what he is talking about. This is one of the reasons behind the increase of Islamophobia in the West…

Typical Islamic behaviour: pretend to be warm and fuzzy whilst supporting groups like Hezbollah. Of course, Italy is so far gone, that might not bother this stupid woman. I wonder if she would like to live there herself.  

She might be crazy enough – she has apparently visited the place, as I discovered while searching for a photo.  I also found photos of her on PressTV (also run by Iran).
