Iran protests: Supreme leader Khamenei blames ‘enemies’

Source: BBC News

Iran’s supreme leader has accused the country’s enemies of stirring days of protests that have claimed at least 22 lives.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was speaking for the first time since people protesting at Iran’s economic troubles clashed with security forces last Thursday.

Nine people, including a child, died overnight in violence in central Iran, state media say.

The protests are the largest since the disputed 2009 presidential election.

  1. The protests initially are often genuine. High unemployment and high prices are frustrating. The danger comes when outsiders take advantage of it. Like in Syria. Initial protests were for genuine grievences. All-of–sudden the demonstrators got weapons courtesy of ‘democracy-loving-CIA and Mossad’. We pray that Iranian protests remain Iranian protests.

  2. Rafiq.. Why you do not support CIA- MOSSAD who want to defeat the enemy of Ahmadiyya namely the extremist wahhabi and Syah?
    You know that the extremist wahhabi / extremist syah who have been expeling Ahmadiyaah from their home in Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysis etc since 100 years ago till today.
    Whereas Ahmadiyyah can live in peace in Israel and America.
    I do not understand you where ahmadiyyah stand for.


    • Sorry to be plunt: you are … (ok, let me not use that word). I have seen what they do. They create disturbance, destabilization, destruction, death. Again, I support justice for all, not ‘selected justice’, ‘selected democracy’ …

      • You should see two sides:
        If you see America and Israel in conflic nations was crazy and destruction.

        But if you see American and Israel people in their own country, they are lovely people, they treat people with justice for all. Ahmadiyyah and others treat equally, I is the true fact.

        Please look at every thing wisely and professionally. Rafiq??

      • Thank you Somi for finally acknowledging the crazy and destructive nature of USA and Israel outside of their borders. Well, the occupied Palestinian territories are somewhat inside the responsibility of Israel and they are equally crazy and destructive inside those territories. Yes, they treat the Israeli Arabs somewhat better than those in the occupied territories, but only somewhat. Did you read of the detained Arab Member of Parliament? Without charge?
