Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, speaking at the 8th summit of Islamic Radio and Television Union on Monday pledged that Jihad against the forces which are bent upon destroying the Islamic Revolution by military attacks or sabotaging it from within will continue even after signing a nuclear agreement with the so-called ‘P5+1 powers’.
He described the struggle against the plots hatched by the evildoers in the Middle East region as an evident manifestation of the ‘Jihad on the path of Allah’.
Underscoring the need for taking firm action against US efforts to exploit the outcome of the nuclear talks to boost its economy, political and cultural infiltration into Iran, Ayatullah Khamenei said, “The hegemonic system’s plan for the region is based on two pillars of division and infiltration, which should be fought against vigilantly and incessantly through correct aggressive and defensive plans.”
Ayatullah Khamenei also noted that since the victory of 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iranian nation has always been targeted by military threats, sanctions, assassinations, security pressure and vicious anti-Iran propaganda to destroy the true revolutionary Islamic state established by Imam Khomeini.
Ayatullah Khamenei stated that the international anti-Iran campaign with United States on the top, is the most objective instance and complete manifestation of “the concept of the enemy,” stressing, “The US is fully devoid of human ethics and embarks on wickedness and crime with no bridle and under the guise of attractive words and smiles.”
I’m sure Ayatullah Khamenei and his advisers know that stopping America’s inroad march through trade deals, political or cultural exchanges wouldn’t stop Washington from its ultimate goal; a regime change in Tehran for Israel (also here and here).
Washington’s pro-Israel allies like Germany and France have already sent their foreign ministers to Tehran to woo Iranian economy sectors. Australia is also eager to invest in Iran’s mine industry. Tehran also needs to be very careful in dealing with India, Russia, EU and Turkey, as they would abandon Iran to please United States as they did in the past.
Gen. (ret) Amine Htaite, PhD, is one of top Lebanese Army officers and academic. In a recent interview he said that ISIL and other militant groups operating in Syria were created by United States to destroy the ‘Axis of Resistance‘ (Syria-Iran-Hizbullah) for the benefit of Israel. However, he claimed that the anti-Resistance agenda has failed thank to the help Syrian army received from Iran, Hizbullah and Russia.
Four things Iranian leaders must not forget; without United States imperialism Iranian would have a democracy in 1953; no 8-year long Iraqi invasion; no missile attack on Iran’s commercial flight 655, killing 299 passengers, and no Zionist entity to bully Iran and the rest of the Muslim world.
