TEHRAN (Fars News Agency) Iran’s Parliament Speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel said measures and actions of the western powers are against the teachings and aspirations of the holy Jesus Christ, stressing that western powers stand against the Christ as they are a symbol of war and animosity.
The speaker made the remarks while addressing an open session of the Islamic Consultative Assembly here on Wednesday.
He congratulated the Iranian and world Christians on the birthday anniversary of Jesus Christ and the onset of the new Christian year, and expressed the hope that the New Year would be a year of peace and justice in which the world people would benefit from the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Stating that the world people know Jesus Christ as a symbol of peace, kindness and justice, Haddad Adel reminded, “But unfortunately, many Christian powers are standing at a point on the opposite side of Jesus Christ and are a symbol of war, oppression and animosity.
“We should pray that the western world powers become real Christians, because they are not Christians at present and are, in fact, acting against the Christ.”
The speaker further called for understanding, peace, friendship and tranquility for all followers of the divine religions.
