They’re criminals he says, sure it’s illegal to do so and 90% of the idiots behaving that way belong to his sect. But what about shooting at people? Why doesn’t he mention hizbala’s role in domestic and global terrorism? What about walking around with chains, knives and machetes and threatening people during ashura?
