Senior Iranian cleric Hojjatoleslam Kazem Seddiqi

A senior Iranian cleric says the anti-corporatism protests in the US and Europe will lead to the collapse of Capitalism just as the Islamic Awakenings will topple the fake Zionist regime.

Hojjatoleslam Kazem Seddiqi made the remarks in reference to the growing protest rallies against corporatism, poverty and social inequity in the US.

“Those who claim to be the advocates of freedom of speech and create media hype, issue statements, condemn and even make military threats over minor issues in other countries, treat their own awakened people with violence and brutality,” Seddiqi noted.

Tehran’s interim Friday Prayers Leader asserted that three waves have been influential in the global awakenings and focusing the world’s attention on Islam, namely the Islamic revolution of Iran, the disintegration of the communist eastern bloc and the recent Islamic Awakenings in the Middle East, IRNA reported on Friday.

The Senior Iranian cleric further said that the US and Saudi Arabia are complicit in aiding and abetting the repression of the popular protests in the regional countries such as Yemen and Bahrain.

“God willing, the popular resistance would disarm their (the US and Saudi Arabia) weapons and bring the arrogance to its knees,” he said.

  1. Cleric Seddiqi got it right. Capitalism in itself however shouldn’t be a focus of concern. Those former British shopkeepers were never such a problematic and social engineering force as for example, Walmart is. The feudal fiefdoms we now call international corporations are the real problem. They’ve got their second wind, that is, the right to flood money into election campaigns here in the first world, corrupting influential politicians still further. Third world countries rich in minerals like copper, uranium and lithium are still not getting an equivalent return in social justice. Instead of weighing milligram for milligram of raw mineral export in a BARTERED exchange for books, teachers, shelter and agricultural advances, their governments are taking bribes, handing the greatest portion of the peoples wealth over to (international) feudal lords. I can only hope the Libyan Intelligentsia will send a clear message to it’s general public just how precious their sweet crude really is, milliliter for milliliter. Unfortunately, the richest country of the third world, in terms of mineral variety, is Afghanistan and it has no organized intellectual hierarchy like Libya and Egypt does. Perhaps these two great African nations will extend a helping hand to the Afghans and open their eyes to what wealth they really have!
