Iranian MP: Muslims in America Are Time Bombs

Iranian MP Hamid-Reza Katoziyan was interviewed by the Iranian TV channel Jaam-E-Jam 2 and spoke about possible terror attacks by Muslims in the US. The following are excerpts:

Katoziyan: The whole group of people belonging to the Arab community and a large part of the Pakistani and Indian Muslims living in the US are currently, in my opinion, in a special situation. Perhaps they do not walk the streets with weapons in their hands or attach bombs to themselves in order to carry out a suicide operation, but the thought is there.

By the measures America is taking in Muslim countries, the US brings this segment of its population closer every day to the conclusion that this is an administration that will not compromise and that it has made up its mind to annihilate Islamic religious thought in the Islamic world. Thus, there is anger and hatred towards the entire American administration. I claim that if America continues with this policy, then these people will be like time bombs within America.
