A group of Iranian regime loyalists delivered a message to Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi expressing their readiness to export means of Islamizing the state to post-revolution Egypt.
The group is made up of 17 figures close to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei, including his international affairs advisor and brother-in-law, the conservative website Afkar News reported.
According to the website, the signatories of the message addressed to Mursi took this initiative on the occasion of the second anniversary of the Egyptian revolution and owing to their belief that the experience of the Islamic revolution in Iran should be emulated in Egypt to establish a religious state.
“In spite of the economic sanctions and political blockade, Iran is proud to have achieved a great progress thanks to its Islamic law and the wise leadership of Sayyid Ruhollah Mostafavi Musavi Khomeini and Khamenei,” said the message.
This progress, the message added, can be seen in the elimination of poverty in Iran’s countryside and impoverished towns as well as scientific and technological advancement and several educational, industrial, and economic achievements.
The signatories, who called themselves the Muslim Thinkers of Iran, said they are willing to transfer all the expertise and knowledge they have to the Egyptian government and people.
They urged Mursi to form a religious state and not to pay attention to “international goals and pressures” or “trends that call for separating religion from politics, culture, and economy.”
