Tehran, YJC. Senior adviser of Iran parliament speaker says that if Morsi had listened to the Supreme Leader’s guidelines he would not have been overthrown.

Majlis Speaker’s Consultant in International Affairs Hossein Sheikholeslam pointing to Morsi’s mistakes in managing the affairs of Egypt said "The Revolution Leader stated guidelines in his Friday sermons for Morsi to succeed. If Morsi had listened to him, he would not have lost his government.”

Sheikholeslam said in an interview with Tasnim "What happened in Egypt was because the Western countries, and especially the Israeli and American do not tolerate democracy in the region, because they know that democracy is against them.”

He added "Americans do not tolerate democracy because naturally a government shaped on democracy must gratify people’s demands and the people of the region are entirely against the US and Israel. Therefore the US and Israel prefer that an anti-party or dictatorial government is formed in these countries which will rely on foreign power.”
