Skip to comments.Ayatollah Speaks of Plot to Abuse Koran (Amidst Chants of "U.S. Pastor Must be Killed")

DAMASCUS, Syria Irans supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, delivered a fiery address on Monday accusing the United States government of orchestrating desecrations of the Koran by right-wing American Christian groups last weekend, Iranian state news agencies reported.
The speech appeared to be part of an effort by Irans hard-line leaders to amplify Muslim outrage over scattered gestures to burn or tear pages of the Koran, in the wake of the threat later withdrawn by Terry Jones, a Florida pastor, to burn the Koran on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
In Tehran, about 1,000 protesters chanting Death to America and U.S. pastor must be killed clashed with the police and threw stones at the Swiss Embassy, Reuters reported. The Swiss have handled American interests in Iran ever since the United States severed diplomatic relations with Tehran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
After Irans state-owned Press TV ran reports about Koran desecrations in the United States, India blocked local cable operators from broadcasting the station in Indian-controlled Kashmir, where angry anti-American protests have taken place in recent days.
In his speech, Ayatollah Khamenei said the leaders of the global arrogance a code for the United States among Iranian conservatives had engineered the plot to desecrate the Koran, Press TV and other agencies reported. He added that Zionist think tanks which hold the most influence in the United States government and its security and military organizations were also involved.
Ayatollah Khamenei warned people not to believe that isolated right-wing American Christians were to blame, calling them puppets of the government. This incident and previous incidents clearly show that what the global arrogance is attacking today is the foundation of Islam and the Holy Koran, he said.

Uh oh - sounds like the devil’s waterboy has his turban in a bunch again.
We just don’t have enough cruise missiles at the ready to shut up all these a-holes. Then again, maybe just two or three would get the message across.
See what all of the groveling towards the Islamo-Fascists gets you? The Obama Administration bent over backwards to go after this pastor, but according to the numbnuts, he was in on the plot.
Hearing these rantings and ravings, can anyone deny that the death cult is not a religion, but a political movement cleverly disguised as a religion?
Good thing I’m not President. I’ve pretty much had a belly full of this stuff and the next time even one hair on anyone’s head is harmed by a rabid muslem Mecca would get a nuke launched straight at it with no warning whatsoever.
If that didn’t send these cretins back into their caves, then I’d start taking out each and every holy site one by one. Let’s see how well Sharia can advance without Mecca to pray to or a pilgrimage to a now non-existent black stone.
Why doesn’t anyone tell them that we’ll quit burning the Koran when they quit burning our flag?
The disguise ain't that clever.
It only fools morons.
Like the simpletons who believe government is the answer, and capitalism is evil.
Islam: Demanding tolerance; giving none in return.
But yeah, in the U.S., this is O.K., I mean geez, look how many idiots here and across this country demonized this lone wacky pastor and his insignificant congregation for what they were going to do ..... /s =.=
