The Iranian document cited approvingly by the Obama administration as a purported Islamic prohibition of nuclear weapons also calls the United States the world’s “only nuclear criminal” and a “bullying and aggressive” regime that poses a serious threat to the Middle East and the world.
Iran’s mission to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and other international organizations in Vienna has provided a copy of a document, which it says constitutes supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s “fatwa” outlawing nuclear weapons.
Administration officials refer periodically to the “fatwa,” although some skeptics, including Muslims, have expressed doubts that such a ruling exists – or if it does, that it holds much weight. Some Iranian critics of the regime call it an outright hoax.
