“The European races are barbaric. They wear freshly pressed suits and ties, and they smell of eau de cologne, but deep down, they still have the same barbaric nature known from history. They kill with ease. They murder people without any problem. Therefore, beating women in their homes is of no consequence to the [Europeans] and Americans, whereas in an Islamic environment, it is unimaginable.”“Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei: The European Races Are Barbaric Races,” MEMRI, May 10, 2013, http://www.memritv.org/clip_transcript/en/3844.htm.
