“Question: [Since] a national holiday was announced in association with the atrocities leveled against the beleaguered Muslims of Gaza, why was no action whatsoever taken, nor was any sympathies expressed, in a period of 30 years in defense of Muslims in Chechnya?”

“Ayatollah’s Answer: “He is Eternal”! Sympathy with Muslim in Chechnya is tantamount to objection to our friendly neighbor, Russia, and until the completion of the atomic site in Bushehr, any objection to Russia would be equivalent to enmity toward His Holiness the Hidden Imam.”
