Iran's Ayatollah says US must be removed from Islamic world.

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday called on Muslims to "remove" the US from the Islamic world.

"The main problem in the Muslim world is the presence of the United States. It is the biggest problem. We need to address that," he told a gathering of Shiite and Sunni scholars in Tehran for an international conference on Islam.

"It is necessary to remove the US from the Islamic world," the all-powerful cleric and Islamic republic's commander-in-chief said, adding that the country's arch-foe was currently weak.

I thought electing Obama would strengthen the standing of the US in the world, particularly among Muslims. Thoughts?

  • Should be interesting to see the reaction to this. Frankly, I'm surprised it took them this long to say it. I think most of us saw the writing on the wall though. This script could have been written.

    Not mine, but all you heard when Bush was in office was how the world hated us and that when we elected Obama and got rid of Bush we would regain our standing in the world.

    I'm more concerned with what he means by "removing the US from the Islamic world." Does he mean completely, or out of Iraq, Afghanistan, etc?

  • We're acting like this is a new mentality. I am also a big fan of getting the US out of Islamic countries we have enough to deal with here.
