Ahmadinejad Says Chávez Will Rise With Christ; Is Chastised by Cleric : The Two-Way : NPR
Just before leaving for Venezuela to attend the funeral of Hugo Chávez, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad penned a laudatory tribute for the late president.
“[Chavez] is alive, as long as nations are alive and struggle for consolidating independence, justice and kindness. I have no doubt that he will come back, and along with Christ the Saviour, the heir to all saintly and perfect men, and will bring peace, justice and perfection for all,” Ahmadinejad wrote in a letter he sent the Venezuelan vice president.
But The Guardian reports his note almost immediately unleashed criticism from Ahmad Khatami, a cleric.
I am left speechless…. because I’m laughing too hard.
