A former Iranian lawmaker underlined that the recent message of Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei to the European youth is meant to help them not to be deceived by the lies spread by the western media.
“The Supreme Leader addressed the youth in his message and this means that he sees the youth to be different from their governments, and he has asked them not to be deceived by the civilizational war of Huntington and ISIL,” Emad Afrouq, now a university professor, told FNA on Friday.
The veteran politician noted that the policies pursued by Huntington and the ISIL ideology have been created to block the Islamic Revolution’s thoughts and materialization of a religious civilization.
Asked why the Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei has released this message at this juncture, he said the West is trying to make the western people forget about their problems by distracting their attention to an outside enemy who does not exist in reality and for the same reason Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei wants to enlighten the European youth in this respect.
On Wednesday night, Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei sent a highly important message to the European youth on Wednesday night to stress the Islam that the West is trying to portray is a forged concept and not the reality, demanding the younger generation in the West to do research to get firsthand information before accepting their states’ propaganda.
“I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
“I would like to talk to you about Islam, particularly the image that is presented to you as Islam. Many attempts have been made over the past two decades, almost since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, to place this great religion in the seat of a horrifying enemy. The provocation of a feeling of horror and hatred and its utilization has unfortunately a long record in the political history of the West.”
“Here, I don’t want to deal with the different phobias with which the Western nations have thus far been indoctrinated. A cursory review of recent critical studies of history would bring home to you the fact that the Western governments’ insincere and hypocritical treatment of other nations and cultures has been censured in new historiographies,” the Supreme Leader added.
