Addressing Iran’s Air Force commanders and officials on Wednesday The Leader of Islamic Ummah and oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said, “Today the slogans used by the Iranian nation have caught on in the region and those countries that followed the arrogant front are now standing beside the Iranian nation and pursuing their (Iranian nation) objectives and slogans.”
The Supreme Leader added that recent developments in the region shows that the Iranian nation has found itself followers and companions over the past three decades.
“We are not saying that the Iranian nation created the recent developments in the region, but ignoring the effect of the awakening of the great Iranian nation on the Islamic Awakening of the region is illogical.”
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei described Iran as the mother of Islamic Awakening and movements in the region and said,” the Islamic establishment is moving towards a real, lasting, strong and durable identity which is defendable in the face of aggressions.”
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said awakening is the opposite of neglect, adding that if a country seeks to gain respect, identity, security and assert its benefit, it will always be in need of innovation and effort.
Stressing that the West’s material-based civilization has not been able to bring humanity true happiness, the Leader said, “The Western world and countries that follow it have gained nothing from immersing themselves in materialism, carnal desires … and abandoning spirituality.”
The Supreme Leader said this approach has caused serious problems for the foundations of families and in educating future generations.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei added that the message of the Islamic Revolution is a message of spirituality and divine values and freedom from the path that brings misery for the West.
