Ayatollah Mohammed Emami-Kashani (born in Bid Aabaad, Isfahan, in 1937) is a member of the Assembly of Experts of the Islamic Republic of Iran. He has been the Interim Friday Prayer Leader of Tehran.[1]

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.[2]

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.[3]

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.
