Iranian Cleric: Zionists behind ‘Fitna’ film

According to Iranian cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, Israel, Zionists, and unidentified oppressive powers are behind the production of the anti-Islamic film ‘Fitna.’ During a Friday prayer sermon, Khatami was quoted as saying Behind these satanic acts can be found the oppressive powers and the Zionist regime […] We see the hand of the Zionist regime behind these satanic acts and we cry ‘death to Israel.’ He also asserted that the film in addition the caricatures of the prophet Muhammad were a reaction to stop the blossoming of Islam in the world, but stated that it would have a reaction adverse to those intended by the authors.
