BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei strongly criticised US President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents on its southern border, during a meeting with members of the Iranian parliament in Tehran on Wednesday.

“How can they be convinced over a policy, a procedure, to initiate such a wrong and criminal overture of separating several thousands of children from their mothers? This is who they are. This is who they are. These are the same several big, advanced powers which, equipped with modern arms, took to the sea to face the people of Yemen and to take from them a port city which is their only passage to breathe. They kill people without a doubt. This is who they are”, stated Khamenei.

He also called on the “Islamic Republic” to “stand up against this”.

US President Donald Trump’s administration has been roundly condemned for its treatment of migrants on its southern border, in particular a ‘zero-tolerance’ policy that has led to the separation of children from their parents.

Full transcript:

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iranian Supreme Leader (Farsi): “The issue of separating several thousands of children from their mothers in America is no small thing.

It’s a very big issue. One cannot bear to listen these kids crying on TV. How can they be convinced over a policy, a procedure, to initiate such a wrong and criminal overture of separating several thousands of kids from their mothers?

This is who they are. This is who they are. These are the same several big, advanced powers which, equipped with modern arms, took the sea to face the people of Yemen and to take from them a port city which is their only passage to breath.

They kill people without a doubt. This is who they are. They are not bad only for the Islamic Republic. They are innately oppressive people.

They are the creatures of systems of oppression. And yes, since the Islamic Republic seeks justice, boasts of Islam, and boasts of defending the oppressed, they will severely oppose her and renege as they do. One should stand up against this.

We should stay firm and make sure that with the help of Almighty God, the Iranian nation will gain victory over the US and the enemies.”

“They kill people without a doubt. This is who they are.”
=> Ayatollahs hang about a thousand people a year. This is who they are. One should stand up against this.
When Khamenei succeeded Khomeini, a ‘purge’ was made, executing 30,000 people. This is who they are. One should stand up against this.
Since when Ayatollahs care about anything bad happening to the kâfir? This is TAQIYYA. This is who they are.
They are innately oppressive people.
