Khamenei Blames US: “Americans and Zionists incited protests” (Go Figure)

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday claimed that the United States and Israel had incited the anti-government demonstrations in his country, AFP reported.Khamenei praised what he described as a “massive movement of the people against the plots of the enemies”, a reference to the pro-government rallies that have been held across the country since late December, according to Iranian state media.

Such a “popular mobilization against the enemy’s plots targeting the regime… doesn’t exist anywhere (else) in the world,” Khamenei said in a speech broadcast by Iranian media.He accused the United States and “the Zionists” (Israel) of spending months preparing demonstrations in small towns in the hope that they would spread to the capital.

“This will not go unanswered,” he vowed, adding, “The money came from the rich governments of the Persian Gulf and the perpetrators were the criminal Monafeghin group.”Monafeghin (“hypocrites” in Persian) is a label Iranian authorities use for the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran, an outlawed opposition group.
