The supreme leader of the Islamic regime ruling Iran in a speech has blamed America and the Western culture for the world’s problems and promised it soon will fall. And he’s compared the Boston terrorism to military actions in Afghanistan and other troubled Middle East locations.
According to Mashregh News, an outlet run by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards’ intelligence corps, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in a speech yesterday to members of the military and their families compared the killing of the innocent people in Boston to military actions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Syria, which have resulted in “the killing of innocent people.”
The ayatollah, referring to “America’s claim” of being against weapons of mass destruction, stated, “Despite these claims, America’s pilotless planes (drones) mass murder innocent children, women and people of Afghanistan and Pakistan and the terrorists who visibly or in secret are supported by America kill people in Iraq and Syria.”
He added, “America and others claiming human rights who choose silence over the killings of innocent people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, after a few explosions in America make a big deal in the world.”
Khameni accused the West of a double standard, claiming it has a belief that killing innocent people in Boston is wrong but killing innocent people in other parts of the world is fine.
“If there is an explosion in America or a Western country, the world needs to pay a price,” he said.
He said that America’s actions were illogical and based on its opposition to Iran as well as a lack of attention to the principles of humanity, he believes it is on the brink of collapse.
Regime officials have long warned America that its action in Syria to topple President Bashar al-Assad will not be tolerated and that the U.S. has to remove sanctions against the Islamic regime and accept its nuclear program.
Khamenei once threatened the U.S. that in any confrontation, America’s homeland will not be immune to attacks.
But the most ominous statement has come from a senior commander of the Islamic regime: “If the people of America and Europe do not confront the aggressive policies of their governments, they cannot then remain far from the possible future events (terror attacks),” the regime’s armed forces deputy chief of staff, Brig. Gen. Masoud Jazayeri, said in a Feb. 23 interview with Fars News Agency, a media outlet run by the Revolutionary Guards. “Al-Qaida groups and other services which operate for the interests of America (in Syria) will soon change the region of their operations and thereafter create new problems for America and Europe.”
Jazayeri, objecting to U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war, warned that explosions similar to those in Syria would take place in other countries.
As reported exclusively on WND on April 16, a source within Iranian intelligence services told WND the Islamic regime was behind the Boston bombings and to look for trails through Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
The source pointed to the collaboration of the regime’s Quds Forces with Hezbollah and elements of al-Qaida with links to individuals in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. He said that under Quds Force guidance, Hezbollah recruited Sunni terrorists allied with al-Qaida factions in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, who then entered the U.S. for terrorist activities.
The information has been shared with U.S. officials.
But until the FBI and other U.S. agencies complete their investigations, all information regarding the bombings must be considered with great caution and any conclusions would be premature.
In the aftermath of the Boston bombings, Fars News Agency put out a piece headlined, “Obama in deep trouble if Boston bombing was by Salafis (ultraconservative Sunni Muslims).”
Fars, in laying the groundwork for blaming al-Qaida and the Sunnis for the attack, said one reason that Obama has not linked the Boston bombing to al-Qaida is that his administration wants to show it has defeated al-Qaida and any mention of the terrorist group would undermine his position.
It ominously mentioned that America is now allied with the Salafis and al-Qaida in confronting Syria’s Assad and that if it’s proven that the same elements were responsible for the bombings in Boston, then Obama would be severely criticized by the American public.
WND reported exclusively on Dec. 11, 2012, that a team of Quds Force terrorist leaders had infiltrated the United States to attack from within in 2013. The source said the team is to create instability in America through terrorism should the U.S. fail to accept the regime’s illicit nuclear program or increase sanctions, confront Iran militarily or intervene in the Syrian civil war.
In a WND exclusive report on Feb. 28, the source said that a six-member team, including an explosives specialist, was to join 10 Quds Force commanders who already have a cell of 50 terrorists in the U.S. The source added that Iran is working with al-Qaida factions because al-Qaida attacks would not leave behind a link to Tehran.
In the bombing at the Boston Marathon Monday, two explosions killed three people and injured nearly 200. Just today, the FBI released information about those it believes may have been involved.
