IRAN NEWS NATIONAL DESK TEHRAN - Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said here Thursday that the Holy Prophet's blessed daughter Hazrat Fatima Zahra (SA) is the manifestation of the values of prophethood and Imamate, qualities which ordinary mortals cannot fully grasp.

Leader Says No to Relations With America (03.11.1994)

Iran News

TEHRAN - The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei yesterday ruled out the likelihood of resumption of ties between Iran and its arrogant and hegemonic enemy, the U.S. "The aim of the Americans in holding negotiations with Iran is to find a way of exerting pressure on the government of the Islamic Republic," the leader said.

"We want no dialogue with them because we do not need them nor do we fear them. There can exist no friendly relations between Iran and a regime (U.S. administration) which, under false pretense, shot down an Iranian passenger plane and did not even apologize," he said.

Ayatollah Khamenei was speaking to thousands of theological, college and high school students who had called on him on the eve of the 13th of Aban (November 4th), marked nationally as student day and the national day for the campaign against global arrogance.

Recalling the criminal role of the U.S. during the former monarchial regime of Iran, the leader pointed out that the victory of the Iranian people in 1979 was in fact the victory of an anti-American revolution because Iranians held Washington responsible for the crimes committed by the Pahlavi regime.

The audience supported the leader's remarks by chanting `Death to the U.S.', `Death to Israel', `We are all your soldiers and Are All Awaiting Your Order, Khamenei'. The ayatollah continued by saying that when the Islamic Revolution became victorious, the Iranian people had the right to take any decision they liked against U.S. agents.

"But the reaction of the nation, revolution and the noble Imam to the Americans was full of magnanimity and forgiveness," the Leader of the Islamic Revolution said. "Instead of taking advantage of such generosity of spirit displayed by the Iranian people, (the U.S.) adopted a hostile stance and turned its embassy into a center for organizing dissidents and enemies of the Islamic Revolution and system," the Ayatollah said. The U.S. refused to return billions of dollars worth of the assets of the Iranian people plundered by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and his agents, while freezing Iranian assets in the U.S., he noted.

The leader also pointed to the courageous action of the students following the Imam's path in taking over the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979. "The aim of the brave nation of Iran in occupying the (U.S.) den of espionage was to convey the message to the U.S. regime that the Iranian nation will not sit idle in the face of

American plots and will resist at any cost such a hegemonic and arrogant power". Referring to Washington's attempts to transfer its domestic problems to Iran and other parts of the world including Europe, Ayatollah Khamenei said that the animosity of the Iranian nation is directed only at the U.S. administration and to the dismay of the American government, the Islamic Republic of Iran enjoys logical and friendly relations with most other countries of the world, he said. In fact, the leader noted, "it is the U.S. that is not on good terms with others and treats them in an insulting and rude manner."

The leader remarked that Iran is a great country with a rich culture and glorious history which are manifested in each and every Iranian and, therefore, the American administration and others should not underestimate it. The free nation of Iran has chosen Islam, the Islamic system of government and a life full of struggle and free from big power intervention. This is why governments of the world are keen to have ties with us he said. Ayatollah Khamenei stated, "As long as the Islamic Republic treads the right path and its goals are divine, Islamic and Qor'anic, the confrontation with leaders of the U.S.-led arrogant powers will continue."

Elsewhere in his speech, the Supreme Leader observed that the Islamic Revolution is not confined to Iran's boundaries because its message is universal. The victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979 meant the opening of a new chapter in history for Muslims living in other parts of the world, he said. When the late Imam appeared and the banner of Islam was hoisted in Iran, Muslims worldwide felt they, like their Iranian brethren, had become victorious, the leader remarked.
