He has called al-Qaeda an "illegitimate child of America and Israel":
|“||You talk about al-Qaeda. Have you forgotten who has bred al-Qaeda? It's the illegitimate child of America and Israel, but you name it Islam. This savagery is not Islam. It is coming from inside of you and it is now punching you.||”|
He is a proponent of the rule of law with the following condition,
|“||The law comes from the people and our laws are based on Islam.||”|
At the age of 18, he left for Najaf, Iraq, to continue his Islamic education. Like all Iranian ayatollahs, he possesses a working knowledge of Persian and Arabic.
