Following are excerpts from an interview with Iranian Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, which aired on Al-Alam TV on September 16, 2012.
Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami: This wave of holy rage must turn into a hurricane or a tsunami against the US so that they will refrain from toying with what is holy to the Muslims. They should learn that toying with Islam and with its most honorable prophet is tantamount to playing with a lion's tail. They will pay a steep price for this. They have already paid for this, and they will pay more.
