One can do without America: cleric

October 22, 2016

TEHRAN – An interim Tehran Friday preacher has said life without the U.S. is possible, stating, “Those who think one cannot live without America lack revolutionary life.”

“Imam Hussein (AS) considered martyrdom on the path to God equal to dignity, and rejected compromise with paganism and dishonesty as abject,” Ayatollah Kazem Seddiqi said, the YJC reported.

“Today America as the mischievous oppressor and Saudi Arabia and the child-murdering Israel are the embodiments of global arrogance,” the ayatollah stated.
