Iranian official: Charlie Hebdo murders were a plot by the West

Iran believes is time to send in the clowns. As for this one, Ali Akbar Velayati, he was for 16 years the Iranian foreign minister. He was a presidential candidate in the Islamic republic in 2013.

From Press TV:
​A senior Iranian official has denounced sacrilegious cartoons published by French weekly, Charlie Hebdo, depicting Prophet Mohammad, saying the move has been orchestrated by the West.

This move is completely condemned and is masterminded by Western states, Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei told reporters on Sunday.

“The terrorist attacks carried out against that publication are also condemned like other terrorist acts and this should not be used a pretext for insulting Islamic sanctities,” Velayati, who is also the president of the Expediency Council's Center for Strategic Research, added.
"What has occurred was based on a plot and propaganda war against Islam and is completely condemned by us," Velayati said.
Sadly, President Obama believes we can reason with these Iranian loons. The Tehran Times also has a write-up about Ali Akbar.
