U.S. imperialism and the wanton destruction of cultures: an open letter to Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei

“The real aim of the invaders in the 9/11 wars is not to fight Islamic terror.

Above is an online conference on false flags and Islamaphobia held yesterday, Dec. 13, in Paris. It featured a number of guests and was hosted by the author of the letter below, Anthony James Hall, and Arabist/Islamologist and radio host Kevin Barrett. Below is an open letter to Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei from Hall that was written originally for an Iranian audience. The letter, which is reproduced here in agreement with the author, is a response to the second letter written by Iran’s Supreme Leader to the youth of the West (Dated Nov. 29, 2015). The first was released in January of 2015 and was prompted by the Charlie Hebdo event in Paris. As well as being a 9/11 truth activist, Hall is professor of globalization studies at the University of Lethbridge in Calgary, Alberta, and is the author of two critically acclaimed books: The American Empire and the Fourth World (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2003) and Earth Into Property: Colonization, Decolonization and Capitalism (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2010).—Craig McKee

After taking his vow of office, Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau introduced his new cabinet.
