The Tehran Friday Mass Imam condemned the deadly attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris this week, saying: "we firmly condemn the terrorist attack in France and Confirm that Islam does not permit the killing of innocent people whether they are in Paris, in Syria, in Iraq, in Yemen, in Afghanistan or in Pakistan."

Ahmad Khatami

Ahmad Khatami added however that the West should be held partly culpable in the attack, saying: "The weapons of these terrorists are provided by U.S. dollars, British pounds and the EU euros. You have reared these beasts in you own sleeves."

On Wednesday January 7, twelve people were killed when armed assailants attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine which often publishes caricatures of Muslim holy figures.

Addressing the West, Khatami said on Friday January 9: "These terrorists are reared with your political support and the support of your allies...Know that the path you have been treading the past 10 years is the wrong path."

Yesterday Iranian Foreign Ministry also condemned the attack on Charlie Hebdo but also spoke out against insulting the values of different religions.
