Iran leadership representative issues call to kill
three US ministers
ABC - Saturday, October 12, 2002
A personal representative of Iran's supreme leader has
called for three prominent US Protestant Ministers to
be killed for insulting the Muslim prophet Mohammed.
The Ayatollah Mohsen Mujtahed Shabestari, who is
supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's personal
representative to Iran's Azerbaijan province, says US
leaders want to repeat the crusades.
The three are Jerry Falwell, who has called the
prophet Mohammed "a terrorist"; Pat Roberston, who
claims Islam is a religion of violence seeking to
"dominate and destroy"; and Franklin Graham, the son
of televangelist Billy Graham, who says Islam is "a
very evil and wicked religion".
