“We shouldn’t be content with Google removing the abusive movie but should oblige them to correct their mistake. In the same way that it spread lies, it should be obliged to spread truth and rightness by presenting credible information about the Messenger, and his various qualities and ethics” — in other words, Islamic dawah and propaganda, as if there wasn’t already quite enough of that on YouTube already.
What is this curse that has befallen us in Iran? What kind of slaughterhouse lines up young men for hangings? How much more blood does this regime need in order to simply stay in power — with its increased wave of executions behind closed doors?
