Mysterious Termites!

Kheybar Online - If we look at the “soft war” waged by the enemies of the Islamic Revolution for many years, we see that this “invasion” is divided into two general parts: the part whose actors are foreigners, and other part, [which] is driven by the deceived, self-serving, naive, or inwardly erroneous elements. In other words, “cultural invasion” by “foreigners” is one thing, and the same issue by “insiders” is another thing...

In another letter, Dr. Zibakalam, based on the biased reports of Ahmad Shaheed, attacks Mohammad-Javad Larijani, the secretary of the human rights council in the Judiciary, in a brazen tone. In part of his letter, he calls Mohammad-Javad Larijani’s unrealistic and biased reports “justification”, “pretext” and “excuse”! Recently, he has gone even further and risen in defence of Baha’ism! And in a letter to Dr. Mohammad-Javad Larijani, he complains of the barring of the registration of Baha’i students!

In part of his angry and insulting letter, he wrote, “If, the day after tomorrow, Mr. Ahmad Shaheed writes a report about preventing Baha’i students from entering the country’s universities or [the government’s] dealing with Gonabadi dervishes, Nematollahi and their relatives, you will be the first official in charge of the system to attack him and his report with the most obscene wording... In any case, Mr. Zibakalam’s tone can be examined during this period, and what is clear is that he has become ruder in attacking various institutions such as the Judiciary, the Islamic Consultative Assembly, and the Tehran municipality, as well as questioned the plans in support for hijab and promotion of virtue―let alone his support for Baha’ism, for which there can really be no justification!
