Imam Khamenei went on to stress that this “wrongdoing by the French cartoonist is not just a mistake by a corrupt artist but there are certain hands in gloves behind the scene of this incident because there is no reason for a president and for a whole government to rise in support of such a cartoon or a cartoonist if it is a normal practice.”

The Leader commented on the present situation in the United States and said the US regime is suffering from extreme political decline, civil and moral decadence. He said: “This is not just an analysis of the situation; this is based on what they say. This is what their spokespersons and their writers and think tanks from inside the US say.”
