Tehran, May 15 – Ignoring denials by senior United States officials, including Condoleezza Rice, that the American military had desecrated the Quran at Guantanamo Bay, Iran’s theocratic regime issued a number of inflammatory statements whipping up Muslim feelings on this sensitive issue.

The Islamic Information Dissemination Organization (IIDO) issued a statement on Saturday condemning the U.S. military forces for “desecrating the Holy Quran in the prison at Guantanamo Bay”.

The IIDO also condemned the Washington Post for publishing a caricature which it said was an affront to Islam.

“After the U.S. and its allies realized that the essence of the Islamic revolution in Iran is Islam and its redemptive teachings, they were forced into planning a conspiracy against Islam and its holy book Quran,” the statement said.

The Islamic Information Dissemination Organization is one of several state agencies dedicated to “spreading the Islamic revolution beyond Irans’ borders”. They operate under the authority of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and are allocated hefty budgets.

The IIDO statement said, “We stress the necessity for Muslim nations and governments to keep as vigilant and aware as possible toward the cultural attacks that are made by enemies of Islam.”
