Khamenei turns up heat: Reformists “will be destroyed before your eyes.”
We are living in a time when the globe is on fire. It is laughable to watch American leftists applaud the decimation of the power of the United States. They are playing right into the hands of people who want to remove the United States from its centrality on the world stage. Do they really want to leave the world in the hands of people like Hugo Chavez and Khamenei?
I will be posting some original articles on Hugo Chavez’ Sao Paolo Forum, which is the most powerful Marxist organization in South America today. With this post, I have included a video by Dr. Robert Spencer about Stealth Jihad. It is chilling, yet important.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, stepped up the pressure on reformist leaders on Sunday, accusing them of challenging the foundations of the Islamic regime amid warnings by the opposition that a new round of suppression could be under way.
In a meeting with the clergy, the ayatollah said the anti-government leaders, whom he described as “former brothers”, had turned a dispute over the June 12 election into “a fight against the system”.
Borrowing from the Koran, Ayatollah Khamenei said the regime would remain “stable . . . and you’ll see these opponents…will be destroyed before your eyes”.
It was not clear if the speech, described by state television as “very significant”, was an ultimatum to an opposition that has shifted its focus from criticising Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad, the fundamentalist president, to attacking the supreme leader.
