Tehran's Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Mohammad Emami Kashani on Friday held America, especially CIA, and Zionists responsible for recent cold blood killings southeast of Iran, saying enemy has targeted the country's border security, economy, universities and science.
"Our enemies which are the US and Zionists -- and of course Zionists give lessons to Americans too -- have targeted security on borders, economy, universities and science in Iran," said Ayatollah Kashani in his second sermon to multitudes of worshippers at this week's Friday prayers congregation at Tehran University campus.
"The whole thing is planned in the disgraceful organisation, the CIA, and based on the difference between Shiites and Sunnis. They want to pit Shiites and Sunnis against each other as they did in Iraq," said the major cleric.
Ayatollah Kashani was referring to a series of deadly attacks on Bam-Kerman road southeast of Iran last week, which claimed lives of a group of 12 civilians.
"The enemies had since triumph of the (1979 Islamic) Revolution (in Iran) overwhelmed the (Iranian) society and the world atmosphere with propaganda in the one-side road of the world media; the world people, however, do not have a mere belief in their claims because they (the enemies) are separate from their people."
"These idiots have not identified Shiites and Sunnis well; true, Shiites and Sunnis have differences inside but they share a common culture for protection of Quran and religion and they are all unitedin their basics," he added.
