Capitalism close to collapse: Iran cleric

A senior Iranian cleric says the anti-corporatism protests in the US and Europe will lead to the collapse of Capitalism just as the Islamic Awakenings will topple the fake Zionist regime.
Hojjatoleslam Kazem Seddiqi made the remarks in reference to the growing protest rallies against corporatism, poverty and social inequity in the US.
"Those who claim to be the advocates of freedom of speech and create media hype, issue statements, condemn and even make military threats over minor issues in other countries, treat their own awakened people with violence and brutality," Seddiqi noted.
Tehran's interim Friday Prayers Leader asserted that three waves have been influential in the global awakenings and focusing the world's attention on Islam, namely the Islamic revolution of Iran, the disintegration of the communist eastern bloc and the recent Islamic Awakenings in the Middle East, IRNA reported on Friday.
The Senior Iranian cleric further said that the US and Saudi Arabia are complicit in aiding and abetting the repression of the popular protests in the regional countries such as Yemen and Bahrain.
“God willing, the popular resistance would disarm their (the US and Saudi Arabia) weapons and bring the arrogance to its knees,” he said.
