The crimes perpetrated by Hitler were not mere lies: Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Imam Sayyed Ayatollah Khamenei
Fascism was another outcome of Western experience. It is possible that the claims about Nazi concentration camps were not true, but the crimes perpetrated by Hitler were not mere lies. Fascism was a product of Western schools of thought and ideology, as were Communism and forced labor camps in Siberia and so on.
Today you can see that Western Liberalism led by the United States has resulted in AbuGhuraib and Guantanamo prisons and many other similar prisons across the world. I recently read in a report that the United States has tens of other secret prisons like AbuGhuraib and Guantanamo throughout the world. Such reports have not been denied by U.S. officials.
Still, another harmful result of Western experience was the production of nuclear and chemical weapons, which have proved destructive to mankind.
Western models have turned out to be abortive paradigms for humanity, including for Western nations themselves. Today, in the United States and Europe the family’s foundation has been greatly damaged, and there are alarming statistics about the spread of crime, corruption and other social maladies. This indicates the failure of Western paradigms to bring about prosperity for mankind.
