Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Imam Ali Khamenei: Iran to Pin US Down
“Every one should know that with God’s help, we will pin the criminal US and its collaborators down in this phase,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing members of the Council of Coordination on Islamic Propagation in Tehran on Wednesday.
He blasted the huge amounts of money spent and complicated plots hatched by the US to sow discord among the Iranian people as fruitless, and said the Iranian nation will make Washington disappointed in all arenas.
Ayatollah Khamenei predicted that Washington’s pressures and mischiefs would continue during US President Donald Trump’s era, but ensured that they will never succeed in weakening or overthrowing the Islamic Republic.
“(Former US President Donald) Reagan was both wiser and more powerful than Trump. They took measures against Iran: they shot down one of our passenger aircraft. But where is Reagan, and how powerful is the Islamic Republic now,” the leader said.
He expressed pleasure that Americans’ ill wishes for Islam and the Islamic Republic have been unveiled to the Iranian nation soon after a number of US officials sought to fool Tehran with their iron fist covered in a velvet glove.
Ayatollah Khamenei described the US as the most corrupt and most cruel government in the world, lashing out at Washington for its support for the ISIL and other Takfiri terrorists, the Zionists and the Saudi regime which kills the Yemeni people every day.
He also underscored the racism ruling the US and its judiciary system, and expressed surprise that Washington raises allegations against other countries’ judiciary systems, including Iran.
In relevant remarks in November, Khamenei categorically rejected any possibility for Iran’s compromise with the world powers on its national interests.
“We have experienced that we can [overcome]. We saw firsthand that we can [overcome]. Some spread disappointment, saying that we should compromise with those major powers. Not at all,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of Basiji (Mobilized Forces) in Tehran.
He praised the young revolutionary individuals, who continue to celebrate and act upon revolutionary values, by stating: “The fact that, after 38 years, the youth–who never met Imam Khomeini and didn’t experience the holy defense era or the revolution–can be so zealous and influentially act (make a difference) in the region is truly a miracle of the Islamic Revolution. In certain neighboring countries some couldn’t believe that the barbaric, takfiri group ISIS (ISIL) could be eradicated, but they had to enter the fight, and they soon came to believe it was possible. This is how the Islamic Republic of Iran’s message, the Revolution’s message, reaches out to other nations.”
Ayatollah Khamenei applauded the endeavors of the young men, in nullifying US plots and conspiracies, adding, “In the region, the Islamic Republic and you, young individuals, managed to bring the US to its knees and defeat it. All their efforts and plots were aimed at removing the ideologies of the Islamic Revolution or resistance from the region, but the exact opposite occurred.”
“The operation in Syria and Iraq–disposing of the cancerous tumor, created by the enemies to counter the resistance–was successful thanks to devout young men.
One of the enemy’s strategies is to disappoint our younger generation. Unfortunately, some act like mouthpieces for the enemy, spreading hopelessness, saying it’s not possible to resist such enemies. And, why not? The Islamic Republic has stood up against the enemies’ avarice and has defeated the enemy in all cases,” he said.
“The Iranian people overthrew the monarchy, which was an evil, long-standing regime in Iran, while the US, Europe, and the reactionaries of the region backed it. It was able to create and maintain a state based on moral values, in a world full of disbelief, atheism and negligence, and they developed it [the new state] day after day,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
“You have witnessed that these consecutive conspiracies, which were created in this region by the US, Zionists, Arab reactionaries and others, were destroyed by the sovereignty of the Islamic Revolution. One of the conspiracies was the inhumane Takfiri group: ISIS–which was destroyed, thanks to the efforts of faithful men, with the help of those who supported the resistance force,” the Leader said.
“Even in some of our neighboring countries, sometimes, they did not believe that it was possible to accomplish this. But, they had to join the fight: they entered the battlefield; they succeeded and came to believe it was possible. This is how the message of the Islamic Republic, the message of the revolution, reaches other nations,” he added.
Noting that the Mobilized Forces (Basij) is a unique phenomenon of the Islamic Revolution, which can act in all areas as required and open up the problem nodes, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “Basij represents the gathering and aligning of capacities and facilities to achieve goals. If the Islamic Revolution was only left with all it has today without their Basij, it would no doubt see a great deficiency.”
“In every country, the element that has the last word is the working force. The advanced materialized countries also reached a climax, because of perseverance of their active labor force, who abandoned stagnation–even if for the pursuit of money and materialism,” he said.
