The Recent Events in France Have Convinced Me to Directly Talk to You: Leader

The bitter events brought about by blind terrorism in France have once again, moved me to speak to you young people.



This is the second time the Leader addresses the Western youth in an open letter. In January, Ayatollah Khamenei had sent another missive to the youth in Europe and North America, urging them to study about Islam and to obtain firsthand information about it before accepting their governments’ propaganda.

“I want you youth to lay the foundations for a correct and honorable interaction with the Islamic world based on correct understanding, deep insight and lessons learned from horrible experiences,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in the new letter to the Western youth released on Sunday.

“Anyone who has benefited from affection and humanity is affected and disturbed by witnessing these scenes- whether it occurs in France or in Palestine or Iraq or Lebanon or Syria,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in the letter.

The Leader touched on the recent act of “blind terrorism” in the French capital, which left some as many as 130 people dead, warning, “The truth is that if painful matters do not create the grounds for finding solutions and mutual consultation, then the damage caused will be multiplied.”

 Ayatollah Khamenei said, however, that the “insecurity and strain” experienced by the Western youth following the Paris attacks “differs from the pain that the people of Iraq, Yemen, Syria and Afghanistan have been experiencing for many years, in two significant ways.”
