Press Shia – Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi said, “The US immigration department has issued visas for many travelers, but now they ban those travelers from entering the US. Therefore, a question is raised here, who has confirmed these entry visas? Where in the world is there such anarchy and lawlessness?”

Press Shia Agency – During his advanced jurisprudence class at Qom’s Grand Mosque, Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem-Shirazi, a senior Shi’ah cleric, made some remarks regarding the “Ten Day Dawn” which marks the victory of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution saying, “During the 1979 popular uprisings in Iran against the Shah’s regime, the people came together in their resolve by adhering to valuable concepts such as national unity, self- sacrifice and recourse to God to overthrow the Pahlavi regime. This victory serves as a historic lesson for the generations to come.”

 
The Shi’ah source of emulation then stressed the significance of the country’s independence adding that relying on foreign countries is not rational and added, “American politicians, for one, do not abide by their own words, so how can one trust them?”

 
Ayatollah Makarem-Makarem added, “The US immigration department has issued visas for many travelers, but now they ban those travelers from entering US. Therefore, a question is raised here, who has confirmed these entry visas? The American politicians do not respect and approve their own rules and regulations, so how do we expect them to respect others? Where in the world is there such anarchy and lawlessness?”

 
“Is it rational to trust people who don’t trust themselves? Meanwhile, Saudi citizens, whose country is known to be the main sponsor of terrorism, are allowed to freely enter US without any problems. this is the logic of countries such as US,” he concluded.
