Great Satan a Big Loser in Ayatollah's 'Best Quote' Poll

Who says that Iran isn’t free? Iranians were given the opportunity to vote in an opinion poll on Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s website to pick his best quote of the past year (1390). The “most memorable comment” actually had to do with slamming Bahrain, though there were Zionist name drops:

“I would like to take this opportunity to make a comment. The rulers of Bahrain claimed that Iran is involved in the events of Bahrain. This is a lie. No, we are not involved. Whenever we are involved, we announce it explicitly. We were involved in the anti-Israel events which resulted in victories in the 33-day and 22-day wars. And from now on, wherever a nation or a group fights and confronts the Zionist regime, we will support and help it and we are not at all afraid of saying this. This is the truth. But the claim made by the rulers of Bahrain that Iran is involved in the events of Bahrain is wrong. The claim goes against the truth. If we had interfered, the conditions would have been different in Bahrain.”

In second place, according to the ayatollah’s site, were comments about “the conditions of Badr and Khaybar.” His rant about the “threats of America” came in third.

We’re guessing that “none of the above” wasn’t a poll option.
