The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Ali Khamenei says Britain has a history of humiliating nations, destroying cultural and civilizational heritage and taking control of their resources.
Addressing Iranian naval commanders on Monday, Supreme Leader said British imperialists are known to convince nations of their ineptitude in order to dominate their resources.
“During the Qajar and Pahlavi eras the country’s officials were helpless in the face of the demands of domineering powers … but the Islamic Revolution gifted Iran dignity,” the Supreme Leader added.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Ali Khamenei added that the sense of self-respect that Iran gained because of the Islamic Revolution resulted in the country “single-handedly standing up to the biggest arrogant [powers] and imperialists and crushing their will.”
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Ali Khamenei stressed that feeling weak in front of the enemy will prevent nations from progress.
