Iran Calls Berlusconi ‘Ignorant’ for Islam Remarks
TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran blasted Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi as “ignorant” Thursday for saying that Western civilization was superior to Islam.
“These remarks are the result of the Italian prime minister’s ignorance about Islam’s culture and civilization and its fundamental impact on Western civilization,” said Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi, quoted by Iran’s news agency IRNA.
“It is expected that the Italian prime minister will revise his viewpoint and correct his remarks,” Kharrazi said, adding that the comments were “irresponsible.”
Muslims around the world demanded an apology and the European Union voiced concern over the remarks by Berlusconi, who took office in June amid concerns outside Italy about his far-right political partners.
