Iranian Ayatollah Lackies Offer To Islamize Egypt

While leftists and Islamists decry U.S. "hegemony", they have been far more guilty of imperialistic and supremacist goals than we have- in the past and to this day. Centuries ago we had the Ottoman Empire. Then we had Soviet imperialism in Eastern Europe. China invaded Tibet. Russians invaded Afghanistan. Now Iran wants to help Egypt Islamize the country. They're already meddling in a bunch of neighbouring lands in the region (including Syria), so with an Islamist-led government, Egypt seems a perfect target.

Apparently, 17 of Iran's Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei's lackies, including his brother-in-law and his international affairs advisor,  have offered to help set Egypt on the road to becoming an Islamic state. According to Afkar News:

.. the signatories of the message addressed to Mursi took this initiative on the occasion of the second anniversary of the Egyptian revolution and owing to their belief that the experience of the Islamic revolution in Iran should be emulated in Egypt to establish a religious state.

“In spite of the economic sanctions and political blockade, Iran is proud to have achieved a great progress thanks to its Islamic law and the wise leadership of Sayyid Ruhollah Mostafavi Musavi Khomeini and Khamenei,” said the message.

This progress, the message added, can be seen in the elimination of poverty in Iran’s countryside and impoverished towns as well as scientific and technological advancement and several educational, industrial, and economic achievements.

The signatories, who called themselves the Muslim Thinkers of Iran, said they are willing to transfer all the expertise and knowledge they have to the Egyptian government and people.

They urged Mursi to form a religious state and not to pay attention to “international goals and pressures” or “trends that call for separating religion from politics, culture, and economy.”

Maybe they eliminated poverty in the rural areas, but half the urban population lives in poverty. They're even writing rap songs about it.
