[In the U.S.] blacks are ignored and humiliated. Besides, their lives are in danger as well.
April 4th marks the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the well-known American Civil Rights leader. On this occasion, a review of Ayatollah Khamenei’s remarks on the status of blacks in the United States is published...
Freedom. Human equality. Morality. Humanity. All these values are ones that we all hold dearly, right? However let’s be honest, do any of these actually exist anymore? What happened to the eras where altruism was the common way of living, the eras where the difference between rich and poor was barely existent?
How is it possible that in one corner of the world, a person is swimming in pools of cash and fortune, and in another corner, someone else is watching their family die of starvation?...
Shooting down a woman in the middle of a street for the crime of protesting against a soldier who is armed to the teeth- if this is not terrorism, what is it? This barbarism, because it is being done by the armed forces of an occupying government, should not be called extremism? Or maybe only because these scenes have been seen repeatedly on television screens for sixty years, they should no longer stir our consciences.

The political leaders of arrogance say, "We should disarm Hamas and Jihad". What does it mean to disarm these groups? It means that these groups have a number of missiles with which they can somehow defend themselves in the face of the incessant attacks of the enemy. They say, "We should even take away these few missiles from them". From their viewpoint, Palestine - including Gaza - should be in such a condition that the enemy can attack and fire on it whenever it wants. And Palestine should not be able to defend itself at all. This is what they want.
The President of America has issued a "fatwa" saying that the resistance should be disarmed. Of course, it is clear that you want it to be disarmed so that it cannot deliver any blow against these crimes. But we say that the opposite should happen. The entire world - particularly the world of Islam - should provide the people of Palestine with as many weapons as they can.
