"it is unfortunate to observe some of the domestic press media are following the same line of policy as the sworn enemies of the islamic revolution," the leader drew the attention of the nation to this fact.

The friday prayers leader pointed out, Claims made by some of the u.s media that the islamic republic of iran is reviewing the possibility of its normalization of relations with the united states is totally unfounded and basically senseless. the leader highlighted, "the united states and its lackeys have dangerous ulterior motives against iran and that the iranian nation should be fully alert to objectives and designs of the enemies and not allow the enemy to do whatever it wants in the area of Propaganda against the islamic republic of, iran." the grand ayatollah then elucided on the u.s satanic Propaganda machinery, saying the american administration is after the policy of creating a division among the united iranian nation and by doing so, they intend to create differences among the ummah.

"now we see that the countries, which do not share the borders with the zionist entity and their facing no danger and härm from israel, are also talking about entering into negotiation with the zionist regime," ayatollah khamenei adduced. "the iranian nation: based on its strong rationality and logical reasoning considers the government of the united states as its enemy rand that all the nations around the world admire the islamic republic of iran for having such stance," stressed the leader.

this taboo of relation and negotiation with the united states the leader of the islamic revolution stated."the principle of negotiation between the islamic republic of iran and the united states of america as a superpower is of a vital importance, saying the u s is seriously after becoming a Singular global pole and it wants to establish itself as the only imperial power in the world, the matter which the u.s political analysts and think tanks openly discuss." "the united states is fully aware of this fact that there is a country in the world which does not either value it or give it creditability and that such an attitude of the islamic repüblic of iran is looked at as intolerable element by the united states " highlighted the leader.

the friday prayer leader then pointed out the sovereignty of islamic republic of iran and iranian nation are the destroyers of the fearful profile of the united states and that all the superpowers feign their authority/ command and power on the basis of instilling fear in nations of the world.

the leader pointed out, "iran is not a place where it could impose such a practice of instilling its fear as a super global power. ayatollah khamenei argued that if iran were to enter into negotiation, it would mean that it is surrendering due to the fear of rthe united states and as a consequence of this, the u.s would emerge as a singular global superpower.

in the other part of his sermon, the leader continued that the islamic revolution movement initiated by the iranian nation has been the cause for the awakening of the muslims around the world and due to this very reason, muslim nations and communities in the name of islam started their political movement and reformation and they regard iran as the pole and centre of such movements. "if we are to establish relations and initiate negotiation with the united states, the u.s would have a peace of mind over the fact that the islamic movement would become dormant," the leader pointed out.

"all the officials, intellectuals and political analysts of the third world are of the same belief that there exists no fear for the united states as a global power," said the friday prayers leader.

the leader pointed out that severing of diplomatic relation between iran and the united states is a natural outcome of american conduct and measure as an arrogant power on one hand, and the iranian nation being under oppreösion on the other. "consequently, either negotiation or normalization of relation with the united states will bear no benefit for iranian nation and that the its consequences would be injurious to iran," highlighted äyatollah khamenei.

the leader of the islamic revolution then stated that america first set its foot in iran in 1320 (1941) and it slowly replaced the british influence in iran. during these years prior to the triumph of the islamic revolution, america had a füll grip of iran and it not only persistantly humiliated the iranian nation, but continued practising its oppressive policies as an arrogant power against the innocent people of iran.

the united states continued plundering iran's natural resources in addition to fully supporting the despotic regime of pahlavi. in 1953 the u.s through cia designs toppled the legitimate national government to reinstall its puppet, said the leader. äyatollah khamenei then pointed out that if the american atrocities against the iranian nation are to be compiled it would a thick volume.

the friday prayer leader stated that the severing of diplomatic relation with the united states after the triumph of the islamic revolution is regarded as a great victory for the oppressed people of iran. "after the triumph of the islamic revolution the united states disregarding and disrespecting the great iranian nation, transformed its embassy in tehran into a center for conspiring against the islamic republic of iran. in addition it initiated ugly measures against iran inside the united states," supreme religious jurisprudent stated. "the result of the u.s conspiracies led the students of followers of the line of the late imam, to take over the spy den and to take the members of the embassy as hostages and this is regarded a real punishment against american administration," added the leader.

punishment against american administration," added the leader. the supreme religious leader of the islamic revolution then focused on an all-out backing of the united states for the baathist regime during the eight-year iraqi imposed war against iran (1980-1988).

dwelling on u.s support for the usurping zionist entity, the leader of the islamic revolution stated "the zionist entity is the worst political entity in the world for the fact that it drives away the rightful and legitimate peoples from their lands and those, peoples who continue to reside on their own lawful homeland are maltreated besides practicing the act of kidnappings in the rural areas of lebanon." "it is for this reason the zionists are the expression of terrorism in the world and that the united states support for the zionist is regarded as one of the biggest crimes and that it is also for this very reason that the great nation of iran condemns the united states and openly announces that xthe islamic republic of iran has nothing whatsoever to do with the united states'," ayatollah khamenei underlined.

the supreme religious jurisprudent stated, "it would be wrong to assume that if we are to initiate negotiation and establish relation with the united states, the iranian nation would bear such benefits as the annulment of d'amato intra-territorial law meant for extra territorial implementation and the abrogation of economic sanction against the islamic republic of iran." "the iran government has been successful in attaining major developments during the past ninteen years after the victory of. the islamic revolution, whic.h, in fact, has beeri against the will and wishes of the united states," said the leader. the friday prayers leader pointed out that the united states will never succeed in its efforts to impose its satanic wishes over the islamic republic of iran.

referring to President hojjatoleslam seyyed mphainmad khatami's, interview with the cnn, the leader pf the islamic revolution said that "President khatami had rationally and realistically presented an excellent talk and as a leader, i have the responsibility to disclose what is true to the nation."

"this not the first time that the scandal of such an enormity isbeing spread by media and even the press media. in the time after the demise of imam khomeini the normalization of relation with.the united states was brought up by even by newspapers and a number of articles were printed in that direction," the leader highlighted. "however, no sooner such a scandal was initiated the nation slapped on their ears and the chapter was closed," added ayatollah khamenei.

the friday prayers leader then pointed out that the scandal this time is far wider and of a different nature. President khatami's interview was used as an. excuse for the triggering of scandal of such immens ity. referring to iran,1 s stand in the affairs of relations .with both the united states and the ziönist regime, the leader stressed "Iran has clearly announced its principled policy." "i personally clpsely folj-owed the interview and i'm fully aware what had to be said was precisely put foreward by then president," said ayatollah khamenei.

"i prayed for the President, foreign minister and other officials for having adopted righteous stance against the israeli regime and a correct stand for the palestinian struggles and other domestic issues," added the leader. the leader of the islamic revolution stated that such scandals are •certainly not meant to be in the behefit of the islamic republic of iran or the iranian nation. the friday prayers leader concluded that today,'the islamic republic of iran is the rotating President of the organization of islamic conference (oic) and it has been admitted as a respectible member in many international agencies and that many countries, nations and governments respect, honour and admire iran. however, if we look into the u.s diplomacy and its foreign policies we see that it stands very weak.

 

Friday-prayer: nation is fully aware of the history

(02.01.1998)

tehran, jan. 2, irna -- the leader of the islamic revolution, supreme religious jurisprudent and the friday prayer leader, grand ayatollah Seyyid Ali Khamene’i stated that "arrogant power count on their highly systematized propaganda machine to counter islamic sovereign state." in his address to a great number of worshippers congregated at tehran university campus and the vicinity on the first friday of the holy fasting month of ramadhan, the friday prayer leader went on to say that "the arrogant powers had vital role in transforming and destroying marxist doctrine in east europe through its enormous and strange propaganda machine." "basing the experience attained in the east european communist countries, the arrogant powers are of the belief that they can apply the same kind of guileful propaganda tricks against the islamic republic of iran," highlighted ayatollah Khamene’i.

the leader then drew the attention of the nation that "the arrogant powers are fully mistaken in comparing the islamic republic of iran with european communist countries and the iranian nation with east european peoples as being the same." referring to the united states' and united kingdom's propaganda against the islamic republic of iran during the eight-year iraqi imposed war as a clear example of the sly nature of their propaganda, the supreme religious jurisprudent underlined that "the iranian people have not forgotten their guileful propaganda in presenting the war observely in the benefit of the enemy of iran." ayatollah Khamene’i elucidated that "the nation is fully aware of the history of the negative and hostile propaganda against the islamic revolution carried out by the notorious arrogant power and that such insidious acts would not have any effect over the nation."

the friday prayer leader further propounded that "it would be in their interest to see iran being unstable and insecure, and if they can, they would like to bring about instability and insecurity in the nation. the grand ayatollah then deduced that "when they see no way of injecting their satanic conspiracies, the arrogant powers try to show iran as an unstable and insecure country." "if they could achieve a minimum of spreading rumors to destabilize the rational mentality of some people, create doubt in their minds, and plant fear in their hearts and create suspicion in the minds of the foreign friends of the islamic republic of iran, they consider it a great success in their wily propaganda," said the friday prayer leader.

then referring to the old tricks of the arrogant powers, the leader of the islamic revolution stated "they want to show that there exists differences among the iranian officials." "however, iran's clear cut policies during the eighth oic summit in tehran, has baffled all political analysts in the world and they had come to the realization of this fact and a firm conclusion that `the officials of the islamic republic of iran are united and of same consensus in matters of the policies of the nation'," highlighted the leader.

the leader of the islamic revolution dismissed `any rumors of any high ranking official, people or faction being inclined towards the west'. "the arrogant power seeing the islamic republic of iran having adopted a wise and rational policy, the west and the united states are, in their insidious propaganda, trying to instill the notion that there exists differences among the officials of iran," pointed out

ayatollah Khamene’i. "in another ploy of western satanic propaganda conspiracy, the west is trying to depict the iranian young generation being indifferent to the affairs of the religion," adduced the leader. "at the time when the young generation in the world are becoming more and more corrupt, our iranian youths show depth of adherence to their religious rituals, a clear demonstration of their pious nature and innate traits," the ayatollah added. leader of the islamic revolution finally drew the attention of the ummah, "bbc, the voice of america and the zionist radio are spending in billions of dollars trying to drive their satanic ploys which might possibly work in their interests; however they should clearly comprehend this reality that no one in the islamic republic of iran would buy them."
