Hajj must manifest a firm Muslim resolve

October 26, 2009


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with organizers of this year’s Hajj ceremony Monday noted that Islamic unity was a necessity for the Muslim world at present, adding that the Hajj ceremony must become a manifestation of firm resolve of the Islamic Ummah against any divisive move.

Ayatollah Khamenei described Hajj as a great opportunity and urged the Hajj pilgrims to grab their chance of presence in the holy mosques and shrines in the journey and add to their wealth of faith and spirituality.

Ayatollah Khamenei also urged the pilgrims to be careful not to spend the opportunity on cheap worldly affairs.

The IR Leader then noted that the opportunity was precious as it offers chance of relations with other Muslims, adding that an Iranian pilgrim is expected to present the IRI version of Islam to other pilgrims during the journey through conduct.

Ayatollah Khamenei then urged the Iranian pilgrims to attend congregational prayers in the two large mosques of Saudi Arabia (Masjed al-Haram and Masjed an-Nabi) in a show of unity of Muslims, adding that the advice was also a recommendation of the late founder of Islamic Republic Imam Khomayni.

Ayatollah Khamenei then said that the pilgrims could carry out a large Islamic propagation through holding of Kumayl prayers and Disavowal of Pagans ceremony, adding that Hajj is manifestation of monotheism as it rejects any guardianship from any entity other than Allah.

Ayatollah Khamenei underlined the significance of Islamic unity at the current time and said that the carnages which take place in Iraq, Pakistan and some parts of Iran are aimed at sowing discord among Shi’i and Sunni Muslims.

“Those who carry out these terrorist and bloody moves are agents of aliens directly or indirectly,” the IR Leader said.

The IR Leader said the Hajj pilgrims could not remain indifferent towards what takes place in the world of Islam, especially in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and part of Pakistan.

Ayatollah Khamenei urged the pilgrims to avoid any divisive acts or efforts which aim to harm the hoisted flag of the world of Islam.

Ayatollah Khamenei then slammed the recent insults against Shi’i Muslims during Hajj, adding that these moves are in the interests of America and foreign spy services. The IR Leader urged the Saudi government to meet its duties regarding such moves.

Turkey acted rationally in supporting Palestine

October 29, 2009


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his accompanying delegation Wednesday lauded the existing deep historical bonds between the two nations of Iran and Turkey, adding that the present cordial ties between the two countries have been unprecedented in the recent few centuries.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the IRI was pleased with the back to back religious and diplomatic achievements of the Turkish nation in internal and international arenas.

The IR Leader said the foreign policy of Turkey regarding the world of Islam was fully appropriate and appreciated the policy, saying that Turkey’s stance in supporting the Palestinian people was a correct Islamic and rational move and that such moves would bolster the position of Turkey in the world of Islam.

Ayatollah Khamenei added that the proximity of the Turkish government to the world of Islam would enhance its popularity inside Turkey, at the same time it would attract the support of world Muslims.

Ayatollah Khamenei expressed the pleasure of Islamic Republic of Iran over the country’s international policies and politico-economic approach, adding that the IRI would welcome any move which would bolster the position of the world of Islam and that for the same reason the mutual relations between the two countries are at their best levels ever since the Islamic Republic was established.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the potentials for IRI-Turkey relations were several times its current levels, adding that the seriousness and velocity of both the Premier and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was a precious opportunity for expansion of relations between the two countries.

In another part of his talk, Ayatollah Khamenei touched on the Middle East’s situation and said a Western recipe for the regional issues was neither fair nor effective so that it would fail to resolve regional problems including in Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan.

“Iran and Turkey then must embark on removing the problems in a friendly and brotherly manner,” Ayatollah Khamenei urged Erdoğan.

Pointing to US weaknesses and failures in Iraq and Afghanistan, Ayatollah Khamenei said: “We are assured that there are no differences between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Turkey over the Iraqi issues as the two sides are seeking stability, independence, security and unity for Iraq.”

Ayatollah Khamenei noted that stability and independence of Iraq was not in the interest of those who have currently held a grip on Iraq and that contrary to their slogans, they never seek democracy in the country.

Ayatollah Khamenei underlined necessity of precise and premeditated cooperation between the four countries of Iran, Turkey, Syria and Iraq, adding that there are however adversaries to such cooperation.

Ayatollah Khamenei then highlighted the establishment of the group of eight Islamic countries called D8 as a sophisticated move, urging the group to follow up economic, cultural and diplomatic plans more actively than ever.

Premier Erdoğan for his part thanked IRI for its hospitality, adding that so far he had held very cordial meetings with Iranian authorities in which the Turkish side could raise and negotiate all issues of interest.

Erdoğan then pointed to a meeting of 400 Turkish and Iranian traders, adding that Turkey would make efforts in expanding ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran as well as in adopting a common stance with the country regarding regional and international issues.

Meanwhile, the meeting was also attended by First Vice President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi.

Leader: No talks if result fixed by US


The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday that Tehran rejects any negotiations whose result is pre-determined by the US.

“We do not want any negotiations, the result of which is pre-determined by the United States,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a speech to students on the eve of Wednesday’s 30th anniversary of the US embassy seizure by students in 1979.

“A dialogue like this is like a sheep and wolf relation, which the late Imam (Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomayni) has said that we ‘do not want,’” the leader added.

Khamenei also warned he will not allow people with “ill-intentions” towards the Islamic republic to “throw out a red carpet for the United States.”

He also said that “the US should shed its hegemonic spirit and quit threatening nations, otherwise Iranian nation will not be deceived” by its words and will not forgo the nations interests, independence and freedom.”

Ayatollah Khamenei added that as long as the US wanted “to turn back the time and seek dominance over Iran”, it could by no means compel the Iranian nation to retreat.

Under a proposal discussed in Vienna in mid-October, the United States, France and Russia wanted Iran to send most of its domestically-produced low enriched uranium (LEU) abroad to be converted into more refined fuel for the Tehran reactor that produces medical isotopes.

The world powers introduced the plan, which was first floated by the Obama administration.

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Monday that Iran’s ‘technical and economic’ concerns must be taken into account regarding the draft deal.

“We have examined this proposal, we have some technical and economic considerations on that,” Mottaki told reporters in the Malaysian capital on Monday.

Mottaki also called for the establishment of a technical commission to review and reconsider Iran’s stated issues.

Ayatollah Khamenei’s comments came as Iran prepares to mark the seizure of the US embassy 30 years ago that sparked the rupture of relations with Washington.

The commemoration has become one of the cornerstones of the country and every year students gather outside the embassy building in central Tehran and shout “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!”

Islamic Republic, more profound than US thinks

November 3, 2009


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei Tuesday called the American government a truly arrogant government in the world, adding that the Iranians are in need of an insight in order to know the arrogance.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a speech to thousands of university and school students as well as families of martyrs.

Ayatollah Khamenei urged the American authorities to abandon hope in a turmoil which ensued the presidential elections in Iran “as the Islamic Republic is more profound than they think and the Islamic system has overcome even more thorny incidents than the issue.”

In the meeting held on the eve of the November 4, national day of combat against world arrogance in Iran, the IR Leader said a precise, logical and firm combat against arrogance is bound to several prerequisites, including a motivation which is inspired by faith “because orders fail to make any nation to stay a situation.”

“Thank to an abundant experience gathered through the past thirty years, the present young generation is enjoying so powerful a faith that is never less than early in the revolution if not being more,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The IR Leader noted that the account of a few dilapidated and frustrated revolutionary men are separate from that of the mass of nation and youth, adding that given at present an incident like the imposed war takes place against the country, the voluntary rush of the youth to the frontlines against invading enemies would be far more than what took place in 1980-1 when the western-backed Iraqi army invaded Iran.

A second prerequisite as the IR Leader stated was insight. “The reason behind my repeated calls for insight is the current situation of the world as well as the extraordinary position of Iran. Any public move at the current situation requires a public insight,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The IR Leader also appreciated the present young generation of Iran as being in command of a stronger insight than early revolutionary or pre-revolutionary generation adding that knowing the arrogance is the lead prerequisite in a combat against the arrogance.

“By the arrogance, I mean a power or those powers which intervene in the internal affairs of other nations or countries by assistance of their financial, military or propaganda facilities as if they are owners,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Ayatollah Khamenei then touched on the records of the American government in different countries especially the Islamic ones, saying that the government is arrogant in a true sense.

“Following the Islamic Revolution which revealed the might of the Iranian nation in overthrowing a corrupt, puppet royal system, the American government instead of making an apology and compensating damages it had already inflicted on the nation, embarked on hatching plots against the nation from the very early days and its embassy turned into a centre of espionage and ploy against Iran,” Ayatollah Khamenei deplored.

Ayatollah Khamenei described the written records of the US atrocities against Iran as a thick book.

He continued that years ago a US Defence Secretary spoke from the heart of politicians in Washington and voiced hope for elimination of the Iranian nation, but the late Imam Khomayni stood fast and said Iranians would never withdraw from their rightful stance.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution asserted that the US activities against Iran had caused the nation to move forward.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to recent so-called friendly words on the side of the US officials and said their smile had never been a sign of friendship but something that showed they are intended to hatch a new plot against Iran.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said that tactical smiles can only trick the children and that if a great nation or its officials are to be tricked by such smiles they must have been credulous or taken by carnal desires and fancies.”

Referring to the US president’s oral and written messages for negotiations with Iran and solving the problems, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “We decided not to judge beforehand and instead sit and witness the slogan of change in practice however they did the opposite of what they said.”

Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized on what he had said in his speech to celebrate the Iranian New Year (On March 21st) that the Islamic Administration would not shake hand with iron hands gloved with velvet.

The leader of Islamic Revolution said Washington spoke of talks and threats at the same time, saying that the negotiations must lead to our desired results otherwise we will do this and that

“This is the wolf-sheep relationship that Imam (Khomayni) noted and we do not want this kind of relationship,” he underlined.

“During the era in which two superpowers were in the world and they had agreed on enmity with the Islamic Republic, the Iranian nation stood i n front of them and defeated both. This should be a lesson for America, because it now does not have the power of that era while the power of the Islamic system has multiplied,” said the IR Leader.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the Iranian nation seeks independence, freedom, national interests and progress in science and technology, adding “If anybody wants to attack these rights of the Iranian nation, the nation will stand in front of him.”

“Once America quits its arrogant mood and irrelevant interventions in the affairs of nations, it will be a government like other governments for us, but until America has greed for a return to Iran and control Iran, by no means can it force the Iranian nation to retreat,” he added.

“Let Americans know, the few people with any motivations who have confronted the Islamic Republic of Iran, can not roll a red carpet for America, because the Iranian nation is standing,” Ayatollah Khamenei stressed.

In another part of his speech, the IR Leader regarded the country and its future as belonging to the youth, adding that the country would be preserved with strong will and determination and that the real might of the Iranian nation is in science and research.

At the end of his speech, Ayatollah Khamenei urged the youth to have reliance and good faith in the Almighty God and that the divine victory is with them if they move forward with might, determination, self-refinement and scientific training.

Regional states must thwart enemy plots

November 5. 2009


Leader of Islamic Revolution referred to IRI-Qatar ties as an example of outstanding relations in the region and said the Persian Gulf region should be a safe, secure, and flourishing area through neighbouring countries’ cooperation.

Ayatollah Khamenei said there are foreign efforts to prevent the countries in the region from achieving this goal, adding all the regional countries should make efforts to thwart foreigners’ plots.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution appreciated the Qatari government’s stance against the Zionist regime’s 33-day invasion of Lebanon as well as the 22-day attack to the Gaza Strip.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out that in the case of Lebanon and the Gaza, it was expected that the Arab states, due to common religious background, took sides with the defenceless Lebanese and Palestinian youths in Gaza, but unfortunately some Arab governments’ stance was frustrating.

“More efforts must be made to promote economic relations more than ever,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The leader of Islamic Revolution expressed satisfaction with Tehran-Doha relations and said, “One reason for close relations between the two countries is that all Islamic nations in the region have common enemies.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said the enemies were trying to marginalize main issues while rendering trifles as key issues.

Shaykh Hamad ibn Khalifah ath-Thani in return expressed deep satisfaction of his meeting with the Leader of Islamic Revolution and appreciated Iran’s stance regarding Islamic-Arabic issues especially Palestine.

The Emir of Qatar referred to Iran and Qatar’s shared viewpoints and urged all the regional states not to yield to foreign pressure.

Shaykh Hamad ibn Khalifah ath-Thani voiced hope for rapid growth in relations between the two countries, particularly in economic matters.

Leader urges measures to counter enemy’s soft war


The Leader of the Islamic Revolution warns that hostile countries are trying to create a conflict-ridden atmosphere in Iran with their ‘divisive policies’.

“Attempts to create an atmosphere of distrust and disunity in the country will benefit no one,” said Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in an address to Basij forces on Wednesday.

“Therefore, those who take their cue from the enemy and try to confront the principles of the Islamic Republic and the constitution should know that their efforts will [fail],” he added.

The Leader, however, cautioned that opposition figures, who question the outcome of the June 12 elections, should not be branded as monafeq (seditionist).

Monafeq is usually referred to the members of the terrorist Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) which has masterminded a torrent of terrorist operations inside Iran and Iraq over the past three decades.

“Not all people are seditionists or against the Rule of the Just Jurisprudent (Velayat-e Faqih),” said Ayatollah Khamenei.

Ayatollah Khamenei stressed the importance of “national vigilance” in order to confront the soft war waged by the enemy.

“The enemy has put soft war on its agenda concerning the fact that the arrogance faced failure in confronting the Islamic establishment during the first decade after the Islamic Revolution,” said Ayatollah Khamenei

“Presently the fight against the enemy’s soft war is our main priority,” added the Leader.

The Leader went on to elaborate on the enemy’s soft war and said, “The enemy tries to use a mixture of cultural means and advanced communication equipment to spread lies and rumours and cause doubt and difference among the people.”

As an example, the Leader pointed to the post-election crisis in June, saying, “The enemy sought to drive a wedge between the people and the government but, thanks to the vigilance and alertness of the nation, failed to achieve its goal.”

The message of Ayatollah Khamenei to the Hajj pilgrims

November 26, 2009


Islamic revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a statement to the Hajj pilgrims urged Muslims and Hajj organizers to cherish the precious opportunity and realize their immediate duty which is consolidation of fraternity, resistance against the multi-faced demon of colonialism and renouncing of the infidels in word and deed.

The text of the statement is as follows.

In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate

The season of Hajj is the time of a spiritual rebirth and the dawn of monotheism across horizons over the world. Its rituals flow like a limpid river, offering chances to pilgrims to wash away the filth of sins or negligence and to eventually restore the sheen of their God-like innate disposition.

The shedding of the attire of snobbery and privilege in the Hajj rendezvous and the subsequent wearing of the uniform garment of Ihram altogether symbolize a unanimous Islamic Ummah and decree a symbolic call of unity and empathy to Muslims worldwide.

The Hajj calls “Your God is One God, so to Him surrender. And give good tidings unto the humble” (The Hajj: 34) on the one hand and “the Holy Mosque that We have appointed equal unto men, alike him who cleaves to it and the tent-dweller” (The Hajj: 25) on the other and in doing so, the Ka’bah embodies a call in unison for Islamic fraternity besides its call of monotheism.

The Muslims who have converged onto the holy place from the four corners of the world with an ardent desire for circumambulating around the Ka’bah or visiting the shrine of the Noblest Messenger, may the peace of Allah be upon him and his progeny, are expected to cherish the opportunity in consolidating their mutual brotherly bonds as it would heal many woes of the Islamic Ummah.

Nowadays, we clearly see that the hands of the ill-wishers of the world of Islam are busy more than the past driving wedges among Muslims, thus the Islamic Ummah is in need of integrity and unanimity more than ever before.

Today, the bloodstained claws of enemies are busy unleashing tragic scenes here and there across the Islamic lands; Palestine languishes under the wicked grip of Zionists and suffers a widening tribulation. The al-Aqsa Mosque faces a grave threat; innocent people of Gaza, having already been subjected to an unprecedented genocide and still endure the harshest conditions; Afghanistan, under the boots of the occupiers, witnesses a new suffering on a daily basis; in Iraq instability has robbed people of their calm and their peace of mind; in Yemen fratricide has struck the Islamic Ummah with a fresh grief.

Muslims worldwide should rather stop and think how and where these blind seditions, wars, blasts, assassination bids and massacres which have gripped Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan have been planned. Why was it that before the American-led Western troops arrived in this region in a peremptory and possessory manner, the regional nations had never been subjected to such a long list of sufferings?

The occupiers, on the one hand, brand any popular resistance movements in Palestine, Lebanon or any other place as terroristic, and on the other hand, are organizing or masterminding a violent sectarian terrorism among the regional nations.

The Middle East and the North African region was once colonized and humiliated for more than a century by the Western governments of Britain and France and subsequently by America; their natural reserves were plundered, their free spirit was trodden upon and their nations were taken hostage by the greed of the aggressive aliens.

Yet, after an Islamic awakening coupled with a popular resistance movements made it impossible for them to proceed and following a re- emergence of the issue of martyrdom and ascension to God and on the path of God , as an exceptional factor in the scene of Islamic jehad, the aggressors, having been pushed to a defensive position, resorted to duplicitous methods after replacing their old approach with a new type of colonialism.

Nonetheless, the multi-faced demon of colonialism has now fielded all its capacities to bring Islam to its knees, from military might, an iron fist and flagrant occupation to an evil chain of propagandas and a myriad of lie-spreading and rumour-mongering media centres, from the organization of networks to ruthlessly carry out assassination and homicide to promotion of promiscuity and the proliferation of narcotics targeting the morale and the morality of the youth, and, finally, from a thoroughgoing diplomatic assail on any hub of resistance to the provocation of sectarian snobbery, prejudice and enmity among brothers.

If affection, trust and empathy take the place of the enemy-desired mistrust and animosity among Muslim nations or Islamic sects, the conspiracy of the ill-wishers would be defeated for the most part and their sinister plots in seeking a growing dominance over the Islamic Ummah would be foiled.

The Hajj is one of those precious opportunities for this sublime goal.

Muslims will only be able to withstand the multi-faced demon and overcome it through cooperation with one another and reliance on their common foundations which are encapsulated in the Holy Koran and the practice of the Messenger. Islamic Iran, following the lessons of our great Imam Khomeini, has epitomized this fruitful resistance. The enemies have faced defeat in Islamic Iran.

Thirty years of plotting, conspiring and ill feeling, from staging a coup and imposing an eight-year war, to imposition sanctions and the freezing of assets, from the unleashing of psychological warfare and media confrontation to making efforts to hinder scientific growth and the acquisition of modern sciences including nuclear expertise by the Iranian nation, and even blatant provocations and interventions during the recent glorious and meaningful elections, all turned into scenes of setbacks, passiveness and confusion on the part of the enemy, re-evoking a verse in the Iranian mind: “Surely the guile of Satan is ever feeble” (The Women: 76).

In all other areas of the world too, where people have countered the arrogant powers through a faith-inspired resistance, the faithful achieved victory while the tyrants ended up in scandal and retreat. The shining victory of the Lebanese in the 33-day war and the prideful and victorious jehad of the Gazans during the past three years stand as living evidence in this regard.

I emphatically recommend the fortunate pilgrims in general and especially the scholars and orators of the Islamic countries who have attended the Hajj gathering, as well as the leaders of Friday prayers in the noble sanctuaries, to recognize their your immediate duty, to expose the conspiracy of the enemies of Islam in the eyes of your audience, and to call the people to affection and unity, they should strictly avoid anything which may provoke a sense of mistrust among Muslims, and vent all cries at the arrogant and the enemies of the Islamic Ummah and the masterminds of all seditions headed by the Zionists and Americans, and in doing so, help materialize the practice of renouncing the infidels in word and in deed.

I humbly pray to God, the Most High, to confer His succour and blessing on me and to you all.

Islamic Revolution Leader: No threat stands as long as Basij lives

November 25, 2009


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei received thousands of Basij members Wednesday and referred to Basij as the key to survival, national dignity.

Ayatollah Khamenei also urged the media, political activists, and officials to avoid arguing over trivial matters.

“Today, the country’s high priority is to counter enemies’ soft warfare which is intended to incite doubt, discord, and suspicion in the society,” Ayatollah Khamenei said and spoke of Basiji attitude as the best way to meet with the challenges.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution spoke of Basij and its formation as unprecedented and exceptional, adding, “It is the Islamic Revolution’s specialty that the best of people defend the establishment regardless of any reward. The late Imam had the ability (to utilize this potentiality) with God’s blessings.”

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to Basij’s active role in all stages of the Islamic Revolution and said without the help of Basij the outcome of Iran’s Sacred Defence might have been different.

“After the war (Iraqi invasion of 1980), Basij has always pioneered in all fields. The country’s achievements are because of these devoted, able, yet unknown people and not making these facts known to people is doing injustice to Basij,” the Leader of Islamic Revolution said and added that Basij was beyond any cliché military formation despite the fact that its military wing was made of elites.

“Basij, in reality, is the active participation of a wide array of people regardless of wealth or position, founded solely on foresight and faith in God,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution emphasized on Basij’s incomparable abilities and said it had been subjected to unfriendly conducts despite its merits.

“There would be no threats to the Islamic Administration while Basij lives and this is absolute,” Ayatollah Khamenei asserted.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution urged the necessity to identify flaws and weaknesses within Basij so as to facilitate its progress. Ayatollah Khamenei added that after being defeated in hard war, the enemy had adapted the strategy of soft warfare and that it is a priority for the country to tackle the issue.

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to what had happened after the June election as an instance of soft warfare and said the election was an excuse for the enemy to make people harbor grudges against each other. But their intentions to cause discord through manipulation of their agents turned to be impractical because of people’s foresight.

“It is because of the need for understanding what is happening and identifying those behind the scene of such events that I insist on foresight,” The Leader of Islamic Revolution said

Ayatollah Khamenei said any action that fostered enmity among people was harmful to the society and asked political movements as well as people to unite so as to stand against those who had intended to offer the country to the US and arrogant powers.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution warned about some irresponsible statements because they could blur things and cause people to form poor opinion of the elite or the authorities.

Ayatollah Khamenei expressed deep dismay at some members of the media and press that sought discord and advised those who wished the best of the country to ignore minor disagreements.

Ayatollah Khamenei slammed those who spread rumours or slander and said such conducts were only favourable to enemy and said, “The President, the Speaker of the Parliament, the Chair of the System Interests Council, and the Head of Judiciary handle the country and must be trusted by People.”

The IR Leader then cautioned about a post-election ongoing drive to make doubt about the performance of the authorities including the Ministry of the Interior and the Constitutional Guardian Council, adding that the enemy would surely wish for such an ambience.

Ayatollah Khamenei urged the Basiji folks to enhance their faith and foresight and also follow the standards in their judgments, adding that it is not allowed to call someone as hypocrite only for one single wrongdoing and that similarly no one could be called anti-leader only for his or her different views.

Ayatollah Khamenei then urged Basij to extend their dedicatory and untiring manner to other scientific and cultural arenas, adding that the country is in need of various undertakings which could only be accomplished through spirit of dedication.

“As long as a Basij-inspired spirit of sincerity and doing unrequited services exists among people, especially the youth, the enemy could not deal any blow to the country, the revolution or the Islamic System,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The IR Leader also noted that those who seek to confront the Islamic System, the Constitution and the magnificent public movement would rather know they are hitting their heads onto rocks and their efforts will end up in failure.

Ghadir marks true path of the Islamic Ummah

December 6, 2009


Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed ‘Ali Khamenei received thousands of people Sunday on the occasion of the 18th of Dhul-Hijjah (December 6) which marks ‘Eid al-Ghadir al-Khum (the day in which the Noblest Messenger of Allah Hadhrat Muhammad (S) announced Imam ‘Ali (as) as his successor) and said enjoying the divine criterion, the Ghadir issue marks the true path of the Islamic Ummah.

Ayatollah Khamenei congratulated the Iranian nation and all Muslims around the world on the occasion of ‘Eid Ghadir al-Khum and said the Ghadir event is deeper than other Islamic feasts in which the permanent duty of Muslims over guidance and government was determined according to divine criteria, so it was named as the greatest Islamic feast.

Pointing to Quranic verses over completion of Islam in the Ghadir event, Leader of the Islamic Revolution said in fact the leader of the faithful (Imam ‘Ali) was appointed by God and the Noblest Messenger of Allah Hadhrat Muhammad (S) completed his prophesy by announcing the issue.

Referring to some verses of Quran and other Islamic valid documents, Ayatollah Khamenei said Hadhrat ‘Ali ibn Abi Taleb was the most perfect man in knowledge, piety, sacrifice, struggle and other virtues. He invited all Muslims to study and think deeply about these truths.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution underlined on Islamic unity and said we do not expect an Islamic sect accepts beliefs of another sect but our logical call on Muslims is that they should study and think deeply about the truths were released by great ‘ulama including Sayyed Sharafoddin and Amini.

Ayatollah Khamenei named the leader of the faithful (Imam ‘Ali) as an example for the youth and advised all people to take examples from Imam ‘Ali (as) for their different passages of life.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that Shi’ism has originated from divine inspiration and Quranic values.

Ayatollah Khamenei rejected some accusations against Shi’ism that it is a forged and political belief and said that the Ghadir event is a definite issue in the Islamic history which foils all these accusations and elucidates spirit and origin of Shi’ism.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution said Zionists, Americans and other imperialist powers are extremely fearful of Muslim nations’ awakening and Iranian nation’s serving as a model for others. “That’s why they (westerners) have been using ample ploys and tricks over the past thirty years to marginalize the nation and the country but to no avail. Under God’s grace, neither will they be able to do so in the future.”

Ayatollah Khamenei slammed the Zionists and enemies’ lies over Iran’s nuclear issue and said,” The enemies of the nation with telling lie and creating trick try to mislead world’s public opinions, but when the realities became clear, they would hit by disgrace”.

Ayatollah Khamenei warned the leaders of America, England and other Europe an countries to avoid telling lie, adding,” “As we have announced times and again, Iranian nation seek nuclear energy for scientific purposes, believing that tomorrow, when the world’s economic wheels turn on nuclear power, it will be too late for them, if they fail to acquire the knowledge, technology and might today.”

“The Iranian nation tries to earn the nuclear knowledge to fulfill the needs of the next 20 or 30 years generation, but the West by creating turmoil, accusation and telling lie try to prevent the IRI national success,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

“Westerns raise hues and cry, accusations and lies to prevent materialization of the objective,” the IR Leader said. He cautioned the audience against imperialist powers’ political and propaganda conspiracies to deprive Iranian nation from their absolute nuclear right.

“Whenever the world arrogant powers when fail in using threats, military attacks and sanctions against a nation, they seek to sow discord among them, the IR Leader added.

Ayatollah Khamenei termed Iranian nation as patience, brave and resistant and said,” The leaders of arrogant powers in their propaganda talk about their patience, but they know they have no patience before the Iranian nation. They (arrogant powers) have arranged all their political, economical and military plots to defeat the nation.”

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution highlighted patience and resistance of the Iranian nation as the grounds for progress in the country, reiterating,” The Iranian patient nation will foil the aliens hue and cry and continues the way of the founder of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini with vigilance and will conquer peaks of glory.”

‘Nation supports way of late Imam Khomayni’

December 13, 2009


The Leader of Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei receiving Islamic seminary students, scholars and leaders of Friday prayers, said true preaching illuminates minds in the time of political turmoil.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that certain individuals, through law-breaking attitudes, tried to encourage people to act against the Islamic Republic system.

The IR Leader reiterated that such a law-breaking approach resulted in insult to the Father of the Islamic Revolution, the late Imam Khomayni by the disappointed enemy.

Ayatollah Khamenei called on the people to be calm towards those who have insulted the late Imam Khomayni, adding they are people with no roots.

The IR Leader reiterated that the defeated presidential candidates, who have failed to prove their claims of vote fraud, should return to the right path as the election file has come to a close.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to enemies’ active role in what happened after the June election especially insulting the late Imam Khomayni and acknowledged the nation’s support of the late Imam Khomayni.

“This Administration has divine geometry, constructed by a divine man, and relying on people’s support,” Ayatollah Khamenei said while inviting people to be calm and prudent.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution slammed those who incite discord by blurring issues after they had broken the law.

“They pretend they respect the law while in practice they violate every law. They chant their support of Imam Khomayni, yet they set the scene for some to commit such sin and insult Imam to please enemies,” the IR Leader added.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said those who had grown bold and stood against the revolution are small in numbers and spoke of the Islamic Administration as a divine system which had been protected by God in the past thirty years and would remain the same.

“One who works for Islam, the Revolution, and Imam Khomayni changes his course of action the moment he feels he has caused things to go against the principals,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said some should reconsider their actions when they face those who advocate omission of Islam from the most important motto of the Revolution, or when they face some who chant in favour of the Zionist regime on al-Quds Day.

“Why don’t they open their eyes when they see the patriarchs of imperialism, America, France, and England, are supporting them,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The Leader of Revolution said it was more reasonable to acknowledge the truth and condemn the act of insulting to the late Imam instead of denying it.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to those who diverged from the path of Imam while Imam was alive and said that should be a lesson for everyone.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution added that he strongly believed that the administration should have tolerance, but when some insist on diverging from the principles nothing could be done.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the enemies of the Islamic Administration and those who seek to rule the world with their false logic would receive a hard slap from Iranians as well as free nations of the world.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution asserted that the main goal of unity among seminaries and universities is using spiritual and material capacities of these two parts and said main goal in this path is preaching divine messages and offering truth to the people.

Ayatollah Khamenei underlined on holding special ceremonies on Ashura event and said some people believe that there is no need to such ceremonies but elucidation of Ashura event is necessary.

He urges holding such customs and avoiding incorrect moves in this regard.

Pointing to the conditions the era of the Noblest Messenger of Allah, Hadhrat Mohammad, Ayatollah Khamenei said in an atmosphere full of seditions, people can not distinguish between right and false issues and even certain individuals may face with hesitation in different cases.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution reiterated that the enemy uses all its tools to confuse people including the certain individuals. Certain slogans such as law, supporting human rights and oppressed people are among such tools.

Referring to recent remarks by the American president over the lawbreaker governments, Ayatollah Khamenei said which government is more lawbreaker than the American government which occupied Iraq and imposed many difficulties on the country’s people.

“What rules have allowed the American government to occupy Iraq and Afghanistan and kill many innocent people?” The IR Leader asked.

“Promoting religious differences among different sects is another way to sow discord among Muslims,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding the only way to confront religious differences is insight, true preaching and avoiding the enemies’ plots.

“We stand firm in the Palestinian issue”

December 15, 2009


The Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei receiving the Chief of Hamas’ Political Bureau Khaled Masha’al and his entourage regarded resistance and faith in God together with action as the only way to save Palestine.

“It is God’s immutable covenant that victory is for those who believe in Him and practice Jihad in His way,” Ayatollah Khamenei said emphasizing that the Palestinian cause would lead to a bright future despite present hardships.

IRI Leader pointed out two aspects of what is happening in Palestine and said, “One is the Palestinians’ Resistance in the face of the enemy and not yielding. The other is treachery on the side of some Arab leaders disguised as Muslims.”

Ayatollah Khamenei praised Hamas leaders’ uncompromising stance and asserted that the Islamic Republic of Iran regards the Palestinian cause as its own and thinks of its support of Palestinians as a religious duty.

Pointing to enemies’ efforts to inspire a sense of indifference in Iran concerning Palestine, Ayatollah Khamenei said: “Enemies’ plans did not produce despite employing various methods.”

“One of the main reasons behind the arrogant powers’ enmity with the Islamic Republic of Iran is the issue of Palestine and if Iran had withdrawn in the Palestinian issue, many of these enmities would have decreased but we stand firm in this issue and will not withdraw,” stressed IRI Leader.

Referring to the Iranian people’s support for the Palestinian issue, Ayatollah Khamenei said: “The idea that the Iranian people believe in support for the Palestinian issue from the depth of soul is because of Imam Khomeini’s blessing who made this issue flow to the depth of souls and faiths of Iranian people.”

“If the Palestinian issue is solved in a right way, many problems of the Islamic Ummah would be solved,” he stressed.

Referring to latest threats of the Zionist regime against the Palestinian people, IRI Leader added: “If the Zionist regime wages another war against Gaza’s people, it will receive a harder blow and a stronger defeat and will be disgraced in the world more than the disgrace of the previous defeat.”

In this meeting, the Chief of Hamas’ Political Bureau Khaled Masha’al appreciated the brave stances of the Islamic Revolution Leader and Iranian people and government on supporting the Palestinian people and presented a report of the latest situation of Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

“Resistance is the strategic option of Hamas, Resistance groups and the Palestinian people and we will never surrender in front of political and military pressures,” said Masha’al.

Referring to the latest military threats of the Zionist regime against Gaza’s people, he stressed: “If the Zionist regime makes a mistake and wages another war, this time it will receive a harder defeat because Gaza’s faithful people, despite all pressures, now enjoy a higher morale and resistance power in comparison with the 22-day war.”

IR Leader highlights ongoing scientific drive

December 30, 2009


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with members of the EU-based Union of Islamic Associations of Iranian Students Wednesday highlighted the ongoing national scientific drive as a dire need, adding that the youths at present have a divine duty to acquire knowledge and work in the path of God.

Ayatollah Khamenei appreciated the Union for its efforts abroad and called it a Blessed Tree of faithful youths.

Ayatollah Khamenei noted that the key to materialize the aspirations of the Islamic Republic was to institutionalize the scientific drive.

The IR Leader then said the ruling system of the world was unjust, adding that in the world today, the man is confined by discrimination and unfairness of false systems and that an unjust attitude has prevailed the world as an integral part of the Western Capitalist system though under the motto of Liberal Democracy.

Ayatollah Khamenei then touched on an IRI campaign to develop a fair international order and expressed hope the flag of justice could be hoisted in the world after gathering the huge world public force underneath.

The IR Leader spoke of two major goals in this regard: “Development of a model, just system” and “presentation of the features of such a system”. Ayatollah Khamenei said in developing and presenting such an Islamic system, one needs to acquire knowledge, faith, and spiritual and physical strength, adding that the Iranian youths are featured with those elements.

The Islamic Revolution Leader urged the audience that one needs faith and perseverance in order to tread the tough track taking into account the fact that there are worldly desires and motivations in the path.

The IR Leader then pointed to the failure of some fickle individuals to keep the track in the country, adding had they kept their attitude intact, the country would have enjoyed much better a status today either in spiritual or material affairs.

Ayatollah Khamenei added however that the realities on the ground have proved that the size of individuals who join the track is twice those who leave.

Ayatollah Khamenei then pointed to the remarks of some world politicians in support of the ‘Ashoura riots in Tehran and said that such remarks either stem from a desire on their part to play a role in distortion of realities or they being under the influence of Zionist and other alien media of the world.

Dec 30 marches manifested able hand of God

January 9, 2010


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei said Saturday morning the December 30 nationwide marches in support of the Islamic Republic were memorable and manifested the able hand of God, adding that the aliens by making charges that the marches were arranged by the government inadvertently acknowledged that the Islamic Republic enjoys a strong public approval.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with thousands of people from the Qom Province on the occasion of the anniversary of January 9 1977 Qom Uprising against the deposed Pahlavi Regime.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said some events have become landmarks in history due to the people’s endeavour in achieving their goals and Dec. 30, 2009 is one of such events.

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the event as the manifestation of God’s able hand and said the event was doubly important in light of the current political situation.

Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized on the complexity of decision making at the time of political sedition and said in the Battle of Seffin (May-July 657 CE) those who assumed devotion to Islam were fighting Imam Ali and Ammar ibn Yaser illuminated the matter that there was no difference between fighting against the Last Messenger of God and those who stood against Imam Ali only that the latter pretended to support Islam, the Quran and the Messenger.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution concluded that since the early stages of the Islamic Revolution the US, UK, royalists, and the rest of the arrogant powers fought against the late Imam Khomayni and it has continued to the present.

Ayatollah Khamenei asserted that nothing has changed and the enemies of the Islamic Government has been lining up since before the election.

The Leader of Revolution stated that the event of December 30 was the result of nation’s wisdom and said it is not enough even if we thank God for this wisdom hundreds of time.

Ayatollah Khamenei added that the nations’ awareness and presence are the custodians of the revolution and constant fear for the arrogant powers.

The IR Leader then said that the arrogant powers have faced a defeat in their assessments about the recent developments in Iran, adding that the awareness of the Iranian nation has foiled their plots and that the imperialists try to prevent the Islamic Ummah from hearing the voice of foresight and preparedness of the nation.

The IR Leader said the anger of the youths across the country over the desecration of Ashoura and Imam Husayn (as) was natural, adding however that all people should be cautious not to help the enemy sedition by taking uncontrolled moves.

Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that the enemy is planning a complicated sedition adding we should perform cautiously and decide on time so that the enemy plot is foiled.

The IR Leader then urged the responsible organs to follow the rules in this regard.

Pointing to the Holy Quran’s call to justice and moderation, Ayatollah Khamenei said that all people should avoid uncontrolled behaviours and perform according to the law.

The IR Leader said the mass presence of the nation in the December 30 rallies was a final notice, adding that the heads of the three branches of the government heard the nation’s demands and should do their duties against rioters.

Ayatollah Khamenei noted that the enemy seeks to block the country’s economic and scientific progress and hinder the strong presence of the Islamic Republic at international arenas.

The IR Leader then described the huge presence of the nation as the most significant support for the system. He rejected the charges of the alien media that the December 30 rallies were arranged by the government, adding by making such charges, the enemy inadvertently acknowledged that the Islamic Republic enjoys a strong public approval and that no government in the world could arrange such a huge national gathering and bring people to the streets in the course of two days.

Ayatollah Khamenei said under the auspices of Imam Khomayni and sacrifice of the martyrs, the people and the government have formed a single reality and that all the authorities, he himself too, make drops of the large ocean of nation.

Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei: Islamic Revolution of Iran will not budge to enemy

January 26, 2010


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with thousands of people from northern Mazandaran province Tuesday said there are many lessons in historical events that the nation could take in its future path, adding that different plots of enemy were futile during the past due to the faith and vigilance of people.

Ayatollah Khamenei said some nations failed in their national aspirations because they were unprepared for facing with the challenges ahead and therefore their history could teach us to be ready for the threats ahead.

Ayatollah Khamenei then noted that in the past thirty years, the opponents of the Islamic System have made two major mistakes; they considered themselves superior to people and have relied on the enemies of the Iranian nation.

Ayatollah Khamenei elaborated that the superior mood had caused the opponents to brand any legal action or choice of people as populist. The IR Leader added that the opponents of the System were seriously wrong in their reliance on enemies.

The IR Leader said that the US plots in the past thirty years were evidently futile, adding that a clear proof to the argument was that the Islamic Republic of Iran was many times more powerful than the early revolutionary period and keeps its path more robustly.

Ayatollah Khamenei expressed wonder that the enemies fail to take lesson from their past records and continue to push their plots against the Iranian nation.

“American authorities say they have approved a 45 million dollar budget to defeat the Islamic Republic through the Internet. This is the height of frustration of enemy because they have already spent many 45 million dollar sums in their fight against the Islamic System through diplomacy, sanctions, dispatching of spies, recruitment of henchmen and other methods, all futile,” the IR Leader said.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution referred to enemies’ inability to comprehend the reality of 1979 Revolution and power of the masses as the will of God and said the enemies of Iranian nation had long planned to incite riots in Tehran, but their efforts only made people become more determined in defending the Islamic Republic.

Ayatollah Khamenei asserted that recent events caused people to feel more obliged to defend the Islamic Republic.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said some of the enemy plots were designed to make the Islamic Republic to budge, adding however that the Islamic administration will not budge to enemy and the late Imam Khomeini did too.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the nation has stood firm in demanding their rights and added that Iranians want to be a free, independent, and developing nation.

Ayatollah Khamenei said according to Islamic teachings, if the followers of truth are sincere they would overcome any obstacles and what the people have learned since the revolution has proven this.

Active participation in the scene was what the Leader of Islamic Revolution noted as the crucial duty of the people and officials especially the younger generation and those influential in the society.

The Leader of Islamic revolution added that everyone ought to feel responsible in defending the Islamic Republic of Iran and the December 30 rallies were the manifestation of this sense of responsibility. He added that people will show their liveliness in the forthcoming February 11 rallies.

“The heads of three powers in the country should think of serving the nation with prudence as their solemn duty and should not let anything deter them in their task,” The Leader of Islamic Revolution said and added that the country’s forward movement shouldn’t be obstructed.

Ayatollah Khamenei also spoke of numerous evidences that show the hand of God is behind the nation. He expressed hope that with the help of God and Imam Mahdi’s praying the nation will achieve its lofty goals.

Meeting with hundreds of professors, officials and members of scientific boards of Tehran University

February 2, 2010


In a meeting with hundreds of professors, officials and members of scientific boards of Tehran University, the Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei regarded science as real base of Iran’s progress and might, adding: “The ongoing way of scientific progress should be continued with full force and more haste.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said the tyrant Pahlavi regime committed the big sin of demoting religion and religious teachings, adding that political prudence would be boosted if the students command a deep religious knowledge. The IR Leader said the university officials are responsible for the issue.

The IR Leader then addressed the issue of politics in universities, saying that there must be a burgeoning political ambience in universities. “If university totally avoids politics, it would turn into a place for the growth of dangerous intellectual and behavioural microbes however a political university never means a place for abuse of political currents or elements,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Ayatollah Khamenei then pointed to the repeated insistence of the Holy Koran that the faithful must not ignore the tricks of Satan and its followers, adding that through a pessimistic attitude, he considers the recent political developments and bitter incidents as being the outcome of negligence of some individuals. Ayatollah Khamenei noted that political negligence sometimes bears the same fruits as political treason’s.

Ayatollah Khamenei at the end of his remarks thanked the Chancellor and professors of Tehran University for their offer of an honorary doctorate and called it a pride, adding however he could not afford to accept the offer as, if God assists, is willing to keep devotion to his original seminary oath.

Palestine symbol of faith, struggle and dignity

February 7, 2010


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, in a meeting with Secretary General of the Palestinian Islamic Jehad Movement and his accompanying delegation, said Palestine today has turned into an arena for materialization of divine will and victory of the oppressed against the arrogance.

The IR Leader compared the present conditions of Palestine and the Zionist regime within the past 30 years and said, “Palestine today is the symbol of faith, living, will, struggle and dignity.

The Palestinian nation has proved that it is very stronger spiritually than the Zionist occupiers so that the Israeli army with military superiority could not overcome the Palestinian nation’s faith and will and was defeated.

Ayatollah Khamenei termed the Zionist regime’s inability to dominate Gaza as something like a miracle adding that the regime, though enjoying all material and political supports, could not break down the Palestinian nation’s resistance after nearly two years of siege.

The IR Leader added that the divine will has ordained that cruelty will be finished in the region and the arrogance would be defeated.

Pointing to the Zionist regime’s unprecedented barbarism and brutality, Ayatollah Khamenei said that the occupying regime has been the symbol of all cruelties and heinousness within the past 60 years.

Ayatollah Khamenei described the resistance of Palestinians against all pressures as marvellous and said hope of the Palestinian people rooted in their faith is the main cause of their victory.

Being hopeful to victory and resistance should be considered constantly in all Palestinian political scenes, the IR Leader added.

Appreciating the role of Islamic Jehad Movement in the scene of Palestine’s Jehad and politics, the IR Leader said, “I’m optimistic about Palestine’s future and believe that Israel is on the precipice of decline. God willing, its disappearance will be certain.”

Referring to the current process that force of truth is coming to power and force of falsehood is weakening, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “There is no doubt that the end of the route is the release of Palestine from the claws of the Zionists and its return into the Palestinians.”

Talking about the aid of some Arab governments to the Zionist enemy, the IR Leader said, “Surely such efforts are fleeting and Muslim nations will always give their support to the Palestinian cause.”

“We defend Palestine based on our beliefs and stand by it,” Ayatollah Khamenei reaffirmed, adding, “we believe that the Almighty Allah will defend those who are faithful.”

Islamic Jehad Secretary-General Ramadhan Abdullah Shallah, for his part, congratulated the 31st anniversary of Islamic Revolution victory and said the Islamic Revolution of Iran is a unique revolution which could not be compared with any other one.

“Islamic resistance groups will continue their Jehadi and political activities until the event ual victory is reached,” he added.

Supreme Leader Thanks Iranian Nation for Impressive 22 Bahman Rallies

February 12, 2010


Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution issued a message praising the Iranian nation for their massive presence in the 22 Bahman rallies. The following is an excerpt of the message:

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Dear honourable Iranian nation,

I wholeheartedly thank God who manifested His hand of power through your faith, determination, and insight and proved the power and dynamism of the Islamic Republic - which is rooted in the faith and confidence of this ancient nation - to its enemies more than ever before on the 31st anniversary of the Revolution.

Is thirty years of trial and error not enough to awaken the arrogant and bullying powers and prove to them the futility of their efforts to dominate Islamic Iran?

Is the presence of millions of enthusiastic and insightful people in the ceremonies marking the 31st anniversary of the Revolution not enough to awaken the ill-wishers and deceived people inside the country who sometimes hypocritically claim to support the people? Is this not enough to show them the wish and path of the nation which is the path of pure Islam and our magnanimous Imam?

The friends and enemies of the Iranian nation should know that this nation has found its path and will remove all obstacles on its way to reach the peaks of success and prosperity by relying on God and their God-given power. May God bestow His assistance and success on this nation, and I hope this nation will benefit from the prayers of the Imam of the Age (may our souls be sacrificed for him).

Sayyed Ali Khamenei

22 Bahman, 1388

Jamaran Destroyer joins the IRI Navy

February 19, 2010


Jamaran Destroyer, designed and built by the IRI Navy, officially joined the Naval Fleet in Persian Gulf upon a command by the Commander-in-Chief, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei Friday.

Islamic Republic of Iran is now among the few countries which are capable of designing and building advanced battleships and destroyers.

In a multi-purpose mission, Jamaran could operate in aerial, surface and subsurface battles.

Outfitted with over 1.4m pieces of parts or systems, the destroyer has a helideck and can run HIFR operation. Part of the know-how was previously in western monopoly.

Ayatollah Khamenei after the launching ceremony delivered a speech to a group of Navy commanders and engineers of the Jamaran Destroyer in which he appreciated the Navy’s efforts and said that the key to progress and sovereignty of the country is to commission the affairs to faithful youths.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the day was a blessed and promising day, adding, “This significant achievement which is the result of trust in God will make our young generation more determined than before and this is more important than the construction of a destroyer itself.”

Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that the basis of progress and sovereignty is to recognize abilities and talents in the country, adding initially some wishes seem ambitious but everything would be practical under belief in God and reliance on self.

Ayatollah Khamenei hoped that the next Navy projects would be greater and more invaluable.

The IR Leader lauded the Iranian nation for its resistance against arrogance and said the failure of the world arrogant powers against the Iranian nation had proved that no power could dominate a nation if it relies on its own identity and sovereignty.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to the anger and frustration of the enemies after the February 11 rally and said, “In the memorable day, tens of million of faithful hearts chanted their hate against the arrogance and underlined their beliefs and Islamic dignity.”

“The fair reality disappointed the domineering powers including America,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the recent remarks of US President Barrack Obama were prompted by his anger and disappointment at the Iranian nation. “Old and meaningless remarks that Iran is building an atomic weapons show that the enemies of nation have been unable even in propaganda.”

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution said, “We had said many times that our religious beliefs consider the weapons as symbol of destruction and deems them forbidden and prohibited. We have no belief in atomic bomb and will never pursue it.”

“In spite of the propaganda of the world arrogant powers, we seek to revive the heroic soul and dignity of Islamic nations. So far too, the Iranian nation and Islamic System’s efforts has helped awaken t he nations against the arrogance especially America,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Ayatollah Khamenei rejected the US and some other western countries’ claims that Iran takes measures against its neighbours, saying, “Our neighbours know that the claims are lies. America and the Zionist regime try to divert the attention of the Islamic nations from their main enemies which are America and Israel.”

The IR Leader said the Islamic Republic of Iran, as a principle Persian Gulf policy, considers the regional countries as its brothers. “We believe that the Persian Gulf could be managed in the benefit of all regional countries and nations through a collective wisdom,” the IR Leader added.

Ayatollah Khamenei termed the foreigners as an obstacle for security in the region, adding the fixed policy of foreigners is to create discord between regional countries. “We hope they fail in their plots through vigilance and awareness of all the countries,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Meanwhile, in the beginning of the ceremony Ayatollah Khamenei inspected a guard of honour and then paid tribute to Iranian martyrs.

Meeting with leaders of Palestinian resistance

February 27, 2010


Islamic Revolution Leader, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, in a meeting with leaders of Palestinian resistance movements Saturday said Palestine and Quds will return to the Islamic Ummah through resistance and Jihad adding the occupying Israel has no fate but defeat and disappearance.

The Palestinian leaders are in Tehran for a two-day conference on ‘National-Islamic solidarity for the future of Palestine’.

Ayatollah Khamenei in his important and hopeful remarks lauded the firm resistance of the Palestinian nation and people in the Gaza Strip and said,” certainly, Palestine will be released through the memorable resistance of the Palestinian nation, unity of Palestinian resistance movements, as well as faith and reliance on God. Supporters of the Zionist regime will gain nothing but disgrace in history.”

The Islamic Revolution Leader termed the resistance of the Palestinian nation and Gaza as an astonishing and wonderful event and the main reason for progress and firm position of Palestinians, adding that bearing difficulties and non-stop pressures is only possible by God’s assistance and guidance.

“Fairly the Palestinian nation is deserved to be named as the most resistant nation in history,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Islamic Revolution Leader urged the combatant movements to maintain the spirit of resistance among the Palestinian nation as a ground for continuation of the Palestinians’ victories and said,” The Zionist enemy and other sides pressure the people of Gaza and the West Bank in a bid to distance them from the Resistance and force them to surrender but the Palestinian nation with strong spirit and more hopes should be certain that its moves will surely yield positive results.”

Ayatollah Khamenei termed the increasing strength of the Resistance against the arrogance as a clear and undeniable reality, adding, “Strength and firmness of the Resistance front is the result of a combination of spirituality and struggle. The true faith of the Palestinian nation should be deepened. Reliance on God and hope in the fulfillment of God’s promises should be boosted.”

The Islamic Revolution Leader termed the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran as a sign of fulfillment of God’s promises and said,” Establishment of the Islamic Revolution in a country that its regime was completely supported by America and the West was impossible but reliance on God, a united fight, and faith and resistance turned the impossible move into a possible one. Certainly liberation of Palestine will not be more difficult than the victory of the Iranian nation against the former cruel regime.”

Ayatollah Khamenei also urged for combat against western false propaganda over the Palestinian issue.

Pointing to the disgrace of America and the other so-called advocates of human rights in the Gaza 22-day war, the Islamic Revolution Leader said that America and other supporters of the Zionists ignored the most heinous crimes of the regime in the Gaza Strip but when the nations held demonstrations, some Europeans and so-called advocates of human rights only verbally condemned these crimes to avoid more disgrace.

Ayatollah Khamenei spoke of the United Nations’ stance on the 22-Day war in Gaza as scandalous, adding that according to the Goldstone report, the Zionist authorities should stand trial for their atrocities.

Ayatollah Khamenei expressed dismay at the Arab states’ approach to the issue of Palestine and said they regard it as something for the Arabs to deal with, but when it comes to helping Palestinian, they fail to live up to what is expected from them and Palestinians are left alone to face the enemy and its allies.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said that the US President’s promise of change was merely a face saving act that didn’t produce the favourable results, for the Americans explicitly lie in case of Palestine and other occasions.

Ayatollah Khamenei spoke of Palestine as a serious challenge to the Western civilization and the advocates of liberalism. He added that resistance in Palestine has challenged the West’s claims of guarding peace and human rights.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said that Palestine has become a touchstone of real defenders of human rights.

Ayatollah Khamenei added that the US is the definite loser of the Palestinian resistance issue and what the country did in support of the Zionist regime in the past years has blackened the country’s reputation.

Defending the Palestinians was what the Leader of Revolution referred to as a moral duty for the Muslim world.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that supporting Palestine is not a political tactic or strategy but something of ideological value to the Islamic Republic and the nation as evidenced by Quds Day rallies.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution continued that Quds Day rallies were the overflow of pure faith in the Palestinian cause as manifested in February 11th rallies.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out the futility of Palestinian compromise talks and stated that those who seek compromise and abandon resistance, which is the only way to save the Quds and Palestine, are destined to humiliation.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said rejecting the resistance in Palestine, consciously or unconsciously, is a blow to the Palestinian Nation. He continued that the public should be well informed of the realities.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the US incomparable economic, military, and propaganda superiority and said because of the divine assistance, Iran is more powerful than the US.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution concluded that the Muslim world would soon take hold of the Holy Quds as God wills and the whole world would witness the event.

In the beginning of the meeting, the Political Bureau Chief of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Khaled Masha’al acknowledged the holding of the conference of “National and Islamic Solidarity for the Future of Palestine” in Iran and termed it a blessing for the beginning of “the Unity Week”.

Masha’al said the current situation in the region is very different to the past adding, “Today the Resistance Front through the blessing of God and the brave stance of the Islamic Republic of Iran earned several victories against the Zionist regime which were impossible in the past.”

Ramadhan Abdullah Secretary General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement also in his speech termed the conference as very important reiterating, “Solving Palestinian issue is possible through Islamic nations’ consensus. He hoped the conference would pave the way for a strong national consensus about Palestine.

“The main way for solving Palestinians issue is resistance against the Zionist regime because the past experience had shown that political methods have had no positive results except trampling the Palestinians’ rights,” he added.

Secretary General of the Islamic Jihad acknowledged the Islamic Revolution Leader and nations’ support to the Palestinian people and said, “Resistance is the Palestinian nation’s right and we as the leaders of the Palestinian groups including Ezzeddin Qassam, Sheikh Ahmad YaSin and Fathi Sheghaghi will not choose a way than resistance.”

Ahmad Jebril, Founder and Leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine for his part referred to the sufferings of the Messenger of Allah Hadhrat Muhammad (pbuh) in the face of the enemies of Islam and said, “We will continue the same way of the Messenger of Allah and choose resistance as the only way for gaining victory against the Zionist regime.”

He also acknowledged the Islamic Revolution Leader and nation’s support to the Palestinian nation’s resistance.

Colonel Abu Mousa Secretary General of the Fatah based al-Intifada Front referred to the main issue which endangers the Holy Quds and other holy sites in Palestine and said, “The Zionist regime tries to Judaize the Holy Quds through construction of residential units and destruction and occupation of the Palestinian territories and other lands around the al-Aqsa Mosque.”

He said that the victory of the Islamic Revolution was very effective for the formation of Resistance and its victories in the recent years. He said the stances of Iranian and Syrian presidents were brave response to the American and Zionist regime’s attitude and made happy all Muslims in the world including the Palestinian nation.

Maher Taher, the Politburo Chief of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine referred to the role of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the region.

Haytham Setaei, Syrian President’s special envoy notified Bashar al-Assad’s warm greeting to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei and said, “Syria by attending Tehran’s meeting announced the message that the Resistance front will resist against the Zionist regime and its allies through unity.”

Leader received Assembly of Experts members

February 25, 2010


The Leader of Islamic Revolution receiving members of the Leadership Assembly of Experts spoke of the Islamic administration as a divine system based on absolute obedience to God.

Ayatollah Khamenei continued that that those who respect the identity of the Islamic administration which is manifested in the constitution and obedience to law are part of the system, but those who trample the basic principles of the administration in theory and practice undermine their own credibility.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution added that preserving the essence of the Islamic administration and its borders is the main cause of the nation’s clashes with the arrogant power. He continued that the Islamic administration endangers the arrogant powers’ interests in the world and that is the source of their enmity towards the Islamic system.

Ayatollah Khamenei spoke of justice, human dignity, and peoples vote as the foundation of the Islamic administration and said because of this, elections are real in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution continued that some denied people’s vote in June 2009 election and by committing this serious sin they didn’t obey the law.

"In the Islamic system, despite many so-called democratic countries, those possessing power and wealth wouldn’t direct people’s votes and the nation decides on their own. Their decision may be wrong, but it is their decision and everybody should respect it," The Leader of Islamic Revolution said.

Ayatollah Khamenei added that distinguishing one’s stance from the enemy is necessary and blurring the differences is a big mistake which misleads people.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution asserted that the Islamic system is in a far superior position compared with 31 years ago and the February 11th rallies have proved it.

Ayatollah Khamenei also spoke of the widely spread frontline of the enemies of the people and added that centers controlled by the Zionists as well as international companies are utilizing all their power to confront the Islamic administration. He continued that at the same time some inside the country repeat enemies’ false claims so as to win their confidence and pave the way for them to damage the Islamic system.

Ayatollah Khamenei resembled the Islamic administration to an arch that whoever gets on board is saved. He added that those who doesn’t respect the law and the majority’s vote while trying to turn the glorious election of June to a point of weakness are practically leaving the arch and lose their credibility to be part of the Islamic system.

Anti-hegemony policy only belongs to IRI

February 28, 2010


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with IRI’s Foreign Minister, the officials of Foreign Ministry, ambassadors and the heads of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s missions regarded the Islamic Revolution as the creator of a new logic and policy in international relations arena under the title of “interactive policy against the hegemonic system.”

“The duty of an ambassador and representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran is to make use of qualitative, strong and effective diplomacy to push forward ‘policy against the hegemonic system’ which requires logical persistence on the principles of the Revolution and basics of shari’ah and not being shameful because of these principles and basics,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Underlining that the practical implementation of “the policy against the hegemonic system” is only belonged to the Islamic Republic of Iran, he added: “In the system of hegemony, there are two side s: one is the dominant and the other is the conquerable but the Islamic Republic of Iran has announced clearly from the beginning that it is not dominant and does not accept the dominance of any country.”

Referring to the novelty of “the policy against the hegemonic system” in the world and welcoming this new logic in international relations arena by governments, figures and intellectuals, IRI Leader said: “The policy against the hegemonic system has strategically strong backings and supports, one of which is the great popular backing of the Islamic Revolutions.”

Stressing that contrary to some revolutions, the people’s roaring movement has not declined since the first day of the Islamic Revolution till now, Ayatollah Khamenei asked: “Which country do you know that after 31 years, people’s presence in the anniversary of the Revolution not only declines but has remarkably surged and this backing of people’s presence is a very important issue which is exclusive to the Islamic Re public of Iran.”

He regarded the stunning scientific and technologic progresses of the Iranian young scientists as another strategic backing of the policy against hegemonic system, saying: “Another one of these backings is the unique people’s presence in the elections as the great symbol of democracy that not only has declined but also has surged.”

Considering the great volume of prosperity and construction works in the country in different governments and broad social activities as other strategic backings of the policy against the hegemonic system, Ayatollah Khamenei stressed: “All of these strategic, morale-boosting backings pave the way for the self-confidence of the representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran abroad so that by relying on them push forward the new policy against the hegemonic system on the basis of three principles: dignity, wisdom and expediency.”

He evaluated making use of the power of diplomacy to push this policy forward as very important, adding : “The power and effectiveness of diplomacy is not less than military, propaganda and monetary power and even is more in many cases, thus in order to implement the policy against the hegemonic system, one should make use of a strong and effective diplomacy that is based on logic, wisdom and the morale of self-confidence.”

IRI’s Leader regarded that strong and effective diplomacy requires firstly full belief in shari’ah basics and the principles and thoughts of the Islamic Revolution, saying: “In the arena of diplomacy, one should persists on revolutionary principles and religious basics with national self-confidence and without any bashfulness.”

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution spoke of insistence on revolutionary and Islamic principals as the strong point of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s foreign policy.

Ayatollah Khamenei added that resistance accompanied by logic is a sign of strength which compels others to respect it.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution said in the past years some were under the illusion that to establish relations with the West, one should adopt methods and procedures approved by the West. He continued that some believed that adopting western concepts elevates our position. “But western concepts are old and belongs to 200 years ago while the word and policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran is new and effective,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution acknowledged the Foreign Ministry’s efforts and pointed out Iran’s diplomatic success in the face of international challenges.

“In the nuclear issue for instance, despite the surge of slander, propaganda, and pressure imposed on the Islamic administration, the world powers couldn’t achieve their goals which is a sign of mighty stature of the Islamic republic of Iran,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

“Since the very beginning, the Islamic Republic of Iran clearly stated that it seeks nuclear technology for peaceful purposes such as energy,” The Leader of Islamic revolution added.

Ayatollah Khamenei refuted allegations made by America, Britain, and the Zionists and said they are well aware of their unfounded claims.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution continued that Iran has advanced in nuclear technology despite all sorts of pressure and will continue till the country becomes scientifically and technologically self-sufficient.

Ayatollah Khamenei expressed dissatisfaction with the IAEA and said recent reports and conducts show that the organization doesn’t act independently and continued that such unilateral acts undermines trust to the IAEA and the United Nations.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution spoke of developing the anti-hegemonic policy as the basis in the IRI Foreign Ministry and said every meeting or statement in the field of diplomacy should be measured and timely.

Ayatollah Khamenei added that being familiar with the delicacies in art of diplomacy and negotiations is essential for Iranian diplomats.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution continued that common diplomacy is one of the inventions of the Islamic Republic of Iran and emphasized on effective connections with Iranians outside the country.

There are two most important organs of human body,

Brain and heart,

The whole body depends upon these two,

The heart manages blood circulation,

The brain manages all other body parts,

This is blood circulation that gives movements to body parts,

Once parts start movements, immediately brain comes to combine all body movements,

This is brain that controls all body parts under a combined and united movement,

This is brain that gives body a system,

This is brain that gives body a discipline,

This is brain that tells: “you go first”

This is brain that decides: “what next”

Without brain, the body is like stone,

Without brain, the body cannot show reaction,

Without brain, the body can never recognize its friends or opponents,

Without brain, the body can not even recognize other parts of own body,

Without brain, the body parts are like a crowd that have no connection with each other,

Independence is good when you act like a united body,

When parts of a body try to become independent then this is a sign of death,

When brain is unable to control body then this is death,

One single brain has all the data required to control a body,

No other part of the body has such ability and capacity neither challenges the brain,

This discipline gives a body an identity,

This system gives an unnamed body a name,

This unity gives a body a remarkable sense of security,

This combination gives body the ability to reach at the top of Himalaya,

This is system,

This is law,

This is nature,

Did you find western democracy any where in your own body???

Then, why you put a burden on your brain to develop an unnatural democracy that does not even exist in your own brain???

If, your own brain does not accept such unnatural democracy then why you try to devise it???

For other brains???

To transform them a crowd???

To make them unaware of friends and opponents???

To destroy their identity???

To make them dead???

Yes, human beings catch diseases,

But because of disease, we don’t leave the system,

System of brain and wisdom remains intact in healthy human body or society,

We reject artificial system,

We accept the system of nature,

You claim that the western democratic constitution is every thing???

The constitution works like brain,

OK then,

There are so many countries in the world where there is a constitution,

Then, why they are in chaos and in bloodshed???

Can you bring health to Sharon by reciting Israeli constitution on his bedside???

Can you end the recession by reciting constitution of united states???

Can you end the occupation in Iraq, Afghanistan and Falistine by reciting uno constitution???

Only brain can do it but not constitution…and you know it,

That’s why you oppose Wilayat-e-Faqih…

The identity,

The brain,

The symbol.

Meeting with head of Islamic Culture and Communications Organizations well as IRI cultural representatives

March 2, 2010


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with head of Islamic Culture and Communications Organization as well as IRI cultural representatives abroad said Tuesday the real might of the country was in culture, adding that the cultural ambassadors were duty bound to help present a correct image of the IRI’s Islamic system realities, reflect the advances of current Iran and promote the Persian language and literature.

Referring to the position and importance of cultural activities and communications, Ayatollah Khamenei added: “If a cultural work is done correctly so that it affects people’s thought and emotions, definitely some possible vacuums in the foreign diplomacy of the country or commercial and economic communications would be filled.”

The Islamic Revolution Leader pointed to the methods of colonizer countries in reaching their incorrect and unjust goals through cultural relations and influence, saying: “These countries pursue their inhuman goals with cultural moves, while in the Islamic system which is originated from genuine divine thoughts, cultural methods and tools should be used more appropriately.”

Explaining the heavy duties of cultural ambassadors, the IR Leader added: “Presenting a correct image of the Revolution and the system of Islamic Republic to the world’s people and the officials is one of the important duties of cultural ambassadors.”

Referring to the broad propaganda efforts of the arrogance in presenting a marred image from the Islamic system, Ayatollah Khamenei said: “By presenting a marred image of the system of Islamic Republic, they intend to make the world’s people and those interested in this system pessimistic and reduce the spiritual effect of the Islamic Revolution.”

The IR Leader said the job of presenting a correct image from the Islamic system requires a correct definition of Islam. “Ill-wishers and bullies try to present an Islam to the world’s people that is either a petrified Islam or a useless liberal Islam, while the real and genuine Islam has lofty, deep and clear concepts of human being, God, the future world and the humanity’s material and spiritual needs.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said another duty of the representatives was to introduce the remarkable scientific progresses and the literature and art of the country.

The Leader also urged the representatives to present the democratic manifestations of the country, adding religious manifestations are among the significant realities in this regard.

“The spiritual and amorous presence of different layers of people especially the youth in religious ceremonies including Quran and prayer recitation and mourning gatherings is a great event in the country that should be showed to the world’s people through art and documentation,” Ayatollah Khamenei urged.

The IR Leader also highlighted the issue of Persian language and literature and urged the cultural ambassadors to promote the Persian language through promotion of boards of Persian language in scientific and academic centres.”

IR Leader highlights D8 as model for Muslims

March 3, 2010


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei on Tuesday highlighted the huge cultural and Islamic commonalities of D8 member states and said cooperation between the 8 Muslim countries can be a model for the world of Islam.

Ayatollah Khamenei was addressing the participants of the first D8 Industrial Ministers Summit in Tehran.

The IR Leader in his remarks highlighted the cultural and Islamic commonalities of D8 member states including their important geopolitical position in Asia and Africa, and their one billion population and energy resources.

The IR Leader said cooperation between the member countries can be a model for all Muslim countries and the continuation of industrial cooperation would certainly have positive effects on the Islamic world, including the 8 countries.

Referring to Iran’s support for cooperation between Islamic countries since the beginning of D8 establishment, Ayatollah Khamenei said Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to present its scientific and industrial achievements to Muslim countries.

Pointing to the application of science and industry by hegemonic countries in gaining dominance over other countries, the IR Leader said the Muslim world should promote Islamic countries to their deserving position by employing their great human and natural resources, outstanding talents and cooperation with each other.

Ayatollah Khamenei underlined the necessity of implementing agreements reached in Tehran Summit and urged D8 Group members to increase their cooperation and make impressive strides in industrial progress.

In the beginning of the meeting, IRI Minister of Industries and Mines Ali Akbar Mehrabian reported on the D8 Summit in Tehran and said the first D8 Industrial Ministers Summit was held in Tehran on the initiative of Iran.

D8 is a group of 8 developing countries with large Muslim population that have formed an economic development alliance. It consists of Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, Nigeria, and Turkey.

Palestinian issue can be solved by return to Islam

March 4, 2010


Islamic Ummah must revisit the tenets of Islam and put the teachings of the Last Messenger of Allah to practice, Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei urged Thursday, adding that the world of Islam could find the key to its prosperity in unanimity.

The Thursday meeting which came in celebration of the birthday anniversary of the Last Messenger of Allah, Hadhrat Muhammad and the sixth Shi’i Imam, Hadhrat Sadeq (as) was attended among others by Heads of the three branches of System, Chairman of the System Interests council and guests of Tehran’s two day conference of Islamic Unity which wrapped work Wednesday.

Ayatollah Khamenei said humanity owes morality and dignity to Hadhrat Muhammad “the embodiment of Godly qualities and pick of the good ever” whose birth illuminated a world where negligence and meanness were lingering.

The IR Leader recommended the community of Islam to take light from the luminous standard of the Noblest Messenger, adding that it was an issue of enquiry why a huge community as the Muslims have has gone astray and undecided whereas it is in possession of a large population, a major geostrategic position and ample natural and human resources.

“Why have miseries of poverty, discrimination, and scientific backwardness still gripped the community? Why has it found itself unable to defend its rights in the face of the world bullies?”

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said the world of Islam has been revealing a feeble side in the Palestinian issue. He regretted that while the usurpation of the historical and revered land of Palestine which preceded an age of repression by criminal Zionists against the innocent Palestinian nation has left a deep wound on the body of Islamic Ummah, the latter treats the issue as irrelevant.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the fake, Zionist state of Israel was a perilous cancerous tumour inside the body of Islamic community, adding that the community may fend the malignant tumour and its backers only if it returns to Islam and the teachings of the respected Messenger.

The Leader said the community especially failed to defend the Muslim rights after it fell into a pit of discord set up by America, Britain and other adversaries of Islam. “Those hegemonic powers are well aware that the Islamic community would not notice of the core issue of Palestine once it loses harmony and thereby fan the fire of sectarian discords in the heart of Shi’ah, Sunni and followers of other Islamic sects,” Ayatollah Khamenei cautioned.

The Islamic Revolution Leader then issued a collective call for unity to governments, intellectuals, scholars and activists of the world of Islam, adding that the track of cooperation and progress would break open and Muslim problems, even the Palestinian problem would in large part be resolved provided that Islamic awakening widens and Muslim hearts grow amicable to one another.

Ayatollah Khamenei then noted that a conviction cuts across different Islamic sects that it is mandatory for Muslims to defend any Islamic land that falls victim to aggression. “That the world of Islam, however, contrary to the conviction, has remained influenced by a US and British fuss levelled at Muslim unity,” Ayatollah Khamenei bemoaned.

The Leader of Islamic Revolution said the IRI as bedrock policy pursues a unification of Muslims and a resolution of Palestinian problem. Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei recounted quotes from Imam Khomayni, the Great in this regard; adding that the Islamic System and the state consider it a religious must to pursue the agenda by word and deed.

Ayatollah Khamenei in sum noted that an ever widening wake-up in the Islamic world, emerging notably in pro-Palestinian cries effectually mirrored the rightful call of Islamic Republic.

The IR Leader urged the Muslim governments to take model from the Messenger and pursue Muslim unification and defend their rights particularly in the face of the cancerous tumour of Israel and its allies so that by God’s assistance the Islamic Ummah becomes prosperous in the worldly life and the world to come.

Supreme Leader’s New Year Message

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Oh Conqueror of hearts and sight,

Oh Planner of night and day,

Oh Transformer of power and circumstances,

Change our condition to the best of conditions.

I congratulate all my honourable countrymen who live across our dear and vast country, all Iranians who live in different parts of the world and have pinned their hopes on their beloved homeland, the self-sacrificing youth, men, and women who have made great sacrifices for the lofty goals of the Revolution and the country and who have laid down their lives and offered their youth to the Revolution and the glory of the country, the honourable families of our martyrs, our disabled war veterans and their self-sacrificing families, all those who made sacrifices during the war, and those who work and make efforts for the glory of the country on the auspicious occasion of Norouz and the beginning of the new year - which is the beginning of spring and revitalization of nature. And I offer my greetings to the immaculate soul of our magnanimous Imam who was the founder of this great public movement and the source of progress and improvement of great Islamic Iran.

Norouz is the beginning of growth. Just as this growth is tangible in nature, it can also be manifested in our hearts and souls and in our movement towards progress. Let us have a look at the year 1388 which has ended now. If the year 1388 were to be described in a sentence, I think the description would be, the year of the Iranian nation, the year of this great nation’s glory and victory, the year of this nation’s historic and significant presence in the arenas that determined the fate of our great Revolution and our country.

In the beginning of the year 1388, through their unprecedented presence the people gave rise to an election that was unprecedented in the history of our Revolution - and of course in the long history of our country -and was considered a prominent peak. During the months following the election, the people demonstrated their presence, determination, resistance, national determination, and insight in a great test and in a great and fateful movement.

A short analysis of the post-election events which lasted several months is that after the passage of 30 years the enemies of the country and the enemies of the Islamic Republic have focused all their efforts and power on defeating this Revolution from within. Faced with this great conspiracy and this hostile movement, the nation managed to bring the enemies to their knees through its unique awareness, insight, determination, and resistance. The eight-month experience - from the presidential election to the 22nd of Bahman - that the nation and the country went through was full of lessons and was indeed a source of honour for the Iranian nation.

In the year 1388, the nation had a brilliant performance. Government officials made valuable and great efforts. These efforts are comparatively valuable. They are praiseworthy. All fair observers have a religious obligation to appreciate the efforts which were made in different arenas for the reconstruction, prosperity, and progress of the country. In scientific arenas, in industrial arenas, in social activities, in foreign policy, and in many different areas, government officials have made great achievements. May God reward all of them and bestow on them the opportunity to progress.

Observing the current situation of the country and the great potentialities that lie in the heart of this great country and nation, one may conclude that what we have done and what government officials and the people have done are not a great achievement compared with the great potentials of this country for achieving progress and justice. Everyone should make more efforts than before, and they should consider themselves responsible.

This prayer, which we recite every New Year, contains a very interesting point. It says: “...transform our condition into the best condition.” It does not say transform us to a better state or better condition. It asks the Almighty to transform our condition to the best of conditions. The sincere and dedicated effort of Muslim individuals is that which allows them to reach the best in all areas and affairs.

Supreme Leader: US Government Not in a Position to Talk About Democracy, Human Rights

March 21, 2010


On the occasion of Norouz and the beginning of the new Iranian year, Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution met with the people of Mashhad and the pilgrims to Imam Ridha’s (as) holy shrine. Speaking at the meeting, Ayatollah Khamenei strongly criticized the false claims made by the US government about supporting democracy and human rights. He said that the US government is not in a position to talk about democracy and human rights considering its crimes in Iraq an Afghanistan and its support for the crimes which are committed in Gaza.

He further touched on areas in which the country is in need of intensified efforts and described the necessities of the fourth decade of the Revolution. He further praised the unity and unanimity of the Iranian nation in opposing the efforts of the enemies during the post-election events and said that the Iranian nation will continue to make progress while the enemies of the Iranian nation will only achieve failure and backwardness.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the Islamic Republic is based on belief in God and the teachings of the prophets. He further cited verses from the Holy Quran and said that believing in God and Islamic teachings will result in moral perfection as well as material prosperity and will help humans achieve comfort and progress. “It is due to this reason that the Islamic Republic is based on these principles,” he noted.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution touched on the new Iranian year which was named “The Year of Intensified Effort and Labour” and added that choosing names for every year is not a ceremonial move and will not help solve all the problems of the country either. “Rather, it shows everyone the right path. And considering the lofty goals of the country and the nation in the current year, everyone should have great determination and make more serious efforts.”

Ayatollah Khamenei touched on the efforts made by the officials during the past year to reform the norms of consumption and added that the country is still far from achieving this goal. “But what is important is to pursue this goal because problems will still persist if the norms of consumption are not reformed.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said that gaining knowledge and engaging in research are one of the most important manifestations of intensified effort and labour and said that academic and research centers of the country should set lofty goals in this regard and pursue them with great determination and serious efforts.

Ayatollah Khamenei also urged the executive and legislative branches of the government to cooperate in this regard. He added: “The administration is responsible for carrying out this plan and all the organizations of the country, including the legislative branch, should cooperate with the administration in this regard. On the other hand, the administration should also enforce the laws which are passed by the legislative branch.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said that engaging in innovative thinking, reading books, and increasing general knowledge are other areas in which the country is in need of intensified effort and labor.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that fighting poverty, corruption, and injustice are the most important areas in which the country is in need of intensified effort and labor. He further urged everyone to make non-stop efforts to achieve this fundamental goal.

Elsewhere in his speech, Ayatollah Khamenei said that the vigilance of the nation was manifested both during and after the presidential elections and added that this opened a new chapter regarding the insight of the nation.

Referring to the vigilant presence of the nation during the post-election events, Ayatollah Khamenei described the year 1388 as the year of the Iranian nation and their brilliant presence in different arenas. He said that the 40-million turnout in the elections and the historic and enthusiastic presence of the people in the elections was an important event and a manifestation of the legitimacy of the Islamic Republic. “Even if they deny these facts, the world’s politicians and political analysts realize that the Iranian nation has maintained its position and still believes in the principles of the Islamic Republic thirty years after the Revolution.”

Ayatollah Khamenei described the Islamic and republican aspects of the Islamic Republic as inseparable. He further touched on the post-election events and stated: “I do not accuse anyone. But I am aware of the enemies’ policies and their plans. After analyzing the post-election events and the way they were organized, the people as well as independent, sincere, and perceptive analysts attributed these events to foreigners.”

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to the victory of the Iranian nation in the big test which they were put to during the post-election events and said the attempt to change the result of the elections though violence and riots was against the law and Islamic Sharia.

He said that dividing the people into “losers and winners” and “the majority and the minority” was a clear plan by the enemies which was aimed at creating discord among the people.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the enemies of Islam and the Islamic Republic supported the rioters during the post-election events and reiterated that if they could, the US, Britain, and the Zionists would have sent their forces to Iran during the post-election events in order to fulfill their evil plan. “But they knew that this would not be to their benefit. Therefore, they entered the scene through politics and propaganda hoping to mislead internal and international public opinion through supporting the rioters. But they failed to achieve their goal.”

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution further touched on the necessities of the fourth decade of the Revolution which has been named the decade of justice and progress. He said: “Considering the realities and the fact that the required infrastructures have been created, the fourth decade of the Revolution is an appropriate time for taking great strides towards achieving progress and administering justice.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the educated, enthusiastic, and self-confident youth of the country provide the strongest support for the country in its movement towards achieving progress and administering justice.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution further described the obstacles which lie ahead of the Iranian nation and said that the Islamic Republic has enemies like other countries of the world. “But unlike the US government which is hated by the nations of the world, the Islamic Republic opposes the enmity of arrogant and bullying powers, the Zionist capitalists, and the enemies of humanity.”

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to insight and courage as two essential factors in confronting the enemies and added that the country will be faced with failure if the officials of the country lack courage when dealing with the arrogant powers. He further stated that the enemies may achieve their goals thorough deception if the officials of the country lack insight and courage.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to his last years’ New Year address and added: “The officials of the country carefully considered the apparently extended hand of the US President to see if an iron hand lay under a velvet glove. Unfortunately, that was the case.”

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the covert and overt claims by the US government and their messages and letters regarding their interest in starting relations with the Islamic Republic on the basis of justice and said: “In practice, all these claims proved to be false. The US President adopted the worst stance during the post-election events. He described the rioters and those who attacked the people as a civil movement and inadvertently revealed the nature of his goals.”

He further strongly criticized the false claims made by the US government about supporting democracy and civil rights and added: “The US government ignored the great movement of the Iranian nation during the elections and their unanimous presence in different arenas. Americans continue to kill the people of Iraq and Afghanistan and support those who kill Palestinian children in Gaza. Yet, they claim to support human rights.”

He added that the realities have proved that the US government is not in a position to talk about democracy and human rights.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that governments which adopt an arrogant attitude towards the Islamic Republic should know that the Iranian nation and officials will reject them. He added that the Iranian nation and officials are aware of the true nature of these governments and will not give up their rights under any circumstances.

Norouz, an opportunity for Eastern culture

March 27, 2010


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei received the high-ranking participants of Norouz International Celebration as well as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday.

During the meeting, the IR Leader described Norouz as a spiritual, national and international opportunity which bears outstanding values and is a symbol for innovation, freshness, happiness and deepening friendly relations among people.

Ayatollah Khamenei said it was a privilege for those nations which mark Norouz that the holiday with such values begins the new Persian year.

Even though Norouz is a national ceremony, it has been lauded in different Islamic sayings and therefore it could be an opportunity for remembering the Almighty Allah and expressing submission to the Almighty, Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Referring to the international registration of Norouz, the IR Leader reiterated that it is an opportunity for transferring cultural values of nations which celebrate Norouz to other nations especially in the West.

In the current situation that the east is only consumer of western culture, the international registration of Norouz is a good opportunity for transferring high cultural values of East to western nations, Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The Leader praised the holding of the Norouz International Celebration in Tehran and said such a ceremony could also set the proper stage for all regional nations to get closer to each other than before.

Ayatollah Khamenei also referred to the efforts by certain world powers to cause crisis among regional nations and said, “The fact is that the interests of regional nations are not in contradiction to each other but indeed they complement each other.”

He said that the regional nations can establish a lofty cultural system, adding, “The Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes expansion of ties with neighbouring and regional countries as it favours development and prosperity for all regional states.”

In the Beginning of the meeting the IRI President pointed out that from then on Norouz celebrations would be held in one of the countries celebrating the festival so as to help closer relations. He added that Norouz was the herald of peace, justice, and friendship to the world.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai was the first guest who acknowledged Iran’s initiative in holding the international ceremony and hoped that it would bring peace and friendship to the region.

President Emomali Rahmon of Tajikistan was the second foreign guest of the Leader of Islamic Revolution who praised Norouz and spoke of Norouz registration in the UN as a remarkable event at the time of cultural clashes and threats.

The Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, too, referred to Norouz registration as important. He also acknowledged Iran’s support of the Iraqi people after the fall of the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow of Turkmenistan was the last chief executive in the meeting with Ayatollah Khamenei who praised Iran for making Norouz better known to the world.

Azeri Foreign Minister spoke of International Norouz Celebration as a great event.

The meeting ended with the leaders and high ranking officials of the neighbouring countries standing by the side of the Leader of Islamic Revolution posing for the cameras.

Leader blasts US nuke threat on Iran


The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said Washington's nuclear threat will leave a 'dark spot' in US history.

"International bodies cannot turn a blind eye to this threat," Ayatollah Khamenei said on Wednesday.

"No one should dare to threaten humanity in this way. We will not allow the US to revive its evil dominance over Iran with such threats," the Leader added.

Ayatollah Khamenei said US threats would have no effect on the Iranian nation, but will leave a 'dark spot' on the political record of the United States.

Earlier this month, US President Barack Obama released a new US Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) that among other things restricted the use of nuclear arms against most non-atomic states.

The restriction, however, did not apply to countries that are, from Washington's viewpoint, in non-compliance with non-proliferation treaties.

Just before the NPR was issued, Obama told The New York Times that the loophole would apply to what he called "outliers like Iran and North Korea."

Just found a report with a bit more meat to the bones. For the kids and black equality activists who idolised Obama back then, this is unfortunately how it is.

Leader Urges World to Hold Obama Accountable for N. Threat against Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei deplored the US President's recent nuclear threat against Iran and other states, and called on the international community to hold Obama accountable for such warmongering remarks.

"International circles do not have the right to ignore this threat," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a group of Iranian nurses here in Tehran on Wednesday.

The Leader also described Obama's nuclear threats as "a dark point in the US administration's record" of activity.

"Nobody should have the courage to pose such threats against humanity," Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated.

"We will not allow the US to revive its hell-like hegemony over Iran through such threats," the Leader stressed.

Obama, in an interview with The New York Times, threatened Iran and North Korea with nuclear weapons.

The US administration earlier this month released its policy document known as "Nuclear Posture Review", in which the administration called a manifesto "achieving substantial further nuclear force reductions", but meantime posed a nuclear threat against Tehran and Pyongyang.

Although it explicitly states that all non-nuclear weapons states are immune from nuclear attack, the statement reserves a so-called right for the US to use nuclear weapons against countries like Iran and North Korea, labeled as "outliers" in the paper.

Iran's state and military officials have shown strong reaction to Obama's remarks, warning that any hostile move against the country would be reciprocated by the most crushing response.

Also Last Sunday, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei reiterated that Obama's remarks showed the true nature of the policies pursued by Washington.

"This statement is very strange and the world should not neglect it because the head of a state poses the threat of an atomic attack (against another state) in the 21st century which is the century of claims about support for human rights and campaign against terrorism," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a number of senior military commanders from the Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) last week.
