A senior Iranian cleric lauded Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei’s second letter to the Western youth, saying it clarifies the views of Islam against terrorism.
Ayatollah Ahmad Moballeqi, Chancellor of the University of Islamic Sects, added that the letter also shed light on the nature of terrorist acts and highlighted the West’s double standard approach to the issue of terrorism.
He added that the Supreme Leader has addressed the youth because they have the opportunity and capability to correct the past mistakes in the West that caused the spread of terrorist activities.
Ayatollah Khamenei’s second letter to the youth in the West was released on Sunday, November 29, following the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
In the letter, the Leader underlined that it is only the “youth , who by learning lessons from today’s hardships, will be able to find new solutions for building the future, and block off-roads which have led the West to this current position.”
The Leader’s letter came against the backdrop of a renewed wave of attempts in the West to spread Islamophobia after a string of terrorist attacks claimed by Daesh (ISIL) shocked Paris on November 13.
