Here's a shocker. Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei speaks out about the U.S. mass slaugher of the innocents in Fallujah.
Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has denounced what he described as crimes committed by "infidels" in the shattered Iraq city of Fallujah and called on the Muslim world to protest.
"The massacre of civilians, women and children by the thousands, the execution of wounded, the destruction of homes, mosques and other places of prayer... makes every Muslim restless," Khamenei said in a statement read out on state television.
He said the Americans wanted to spread "the events of Fallujah elsewhere in Iraq, notably Mosul, Samarra and Baquba", as state television showed television pictures of a US Marine allegedly shooting dead an injured insurgent.
Muslim governments "must protest against the crimes committed by the infidel oppressors," said Iran's all-powerful leader, while criticising "Arab and Islamic governments who stand by and watch while we hear appeals for help from the Iraqi people."
"All of these crimes are committed by the occupation forces under the pretext that terrorists are among the population. Does this seriously doubted pretext give the right to murder innocent people, to leace the injured untreated and abandon starving women and children?" the statement said.
