    Tehran - A senior Iranian cleric Friday rejected Western proposals on its its nuclear programme. 'The West can keep this proposal package for itself because it is no use for Iran and the Iranian nation,' Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati said at the Friday prayer ceremony in the Tehran university. His remarks were approved by thousands of worshippers who shouted the standard slogan of 'Nuclear technology is our undeniable right.' 'Yes, of course this is your right and you will eventually get this right,' said Jannati, who is head of the powerful senate-like Guardian Council. 'History has taught us a lesson: whenever...

    Tehran, 23 Nov. (AKI) - Iran's religious minorities have slammed recent controversial remarks by a top aide to the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, describing non-Muslims as "sinful animals who roam the earth and engage in corruption."

"Not only are non-Muslims not sinful animals, but if Iran has an illustrious past and civilisation to feel good about, it owes this to those who lived in Iran before the arrival of Islam," said Niknam, adding that animals...

    Tehran, Iran, Jul. 15 – One of Iran’s most powerful clerics hinted during the Friday prayers sermon in Tehran today that last week’s London bombings could have been the work of the United Kingdom government. Addressing worshippers at the site of Tehran University, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, who heads the powerful Guardian Council, the unelected constitutional watchdog, said, “At times they blame this [London bombings] as the work of Al’Qaeda. Al’Qaeda means [United States President George W.] Bush and [British Prime Minister Tony] Blair who were the mothers of Al’Qaeda and brought to life this illegitimate child”. “There exists the possibility...

The reasons are multifold. With Iran on the verge of developing both nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile capability, Washington policymakers can no longer ignore the Iranian threat, especially when confidants of Supreme Leader Ali Khomenei lead televised chants of "American will be annihilated," as Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati did last June.
