leaders views about aristrocracy (29.11.1999)

tehran, nov. 29, irna -- elaborating on the views of the leader ayatollah ali khamenei on the issue of aristocracy, an english daily monday stressed that a proper attitude on the part of the people will, as pointed out by the leader, be highly effective in safeguarding the islamic society from the vice of aristocracy. 'kayhan international' was referring to last week's meeting between the leader and the students of the sharif technical university. responding to a question as to why no specific and definite measures are taken to stop the trend toward aristocracy which is now being materialized in many official quarters of the country, the leader said that such kinds of vices cannot be eliminated by highhandedness. it is up to the people to not only be vigilant, but that they should also make it known that aristocracy and nobility will not be upheld as was the practice in the pre-revolution era. ''people then were impressed and attracted by the pomp displayed by aristocrats. after the culmination of the islamic revolution, such trends were looked down upon and none dared to indulge in such practices. the society showed abomination toward all that was relevant to haughtiness and arrogance - the inherent qualities of aristocracy,'' noted the paper in the viewpoint column of the paper. as for those persons who have suddenly become rich and make attempt to show off their newly acquired affluence by indulging in un-islamic behaviors with their offsprings behaving worse still, the leader stressed that it is here ''the people can play a significant role. the haughty and arrogant should be discouraged. they should be made to understand that their way of life is not looked at in awe but in disgust,'' noted the paper in conclusion.

leader's answers to questions asked by students (27.11.1999)

tehran, nov. 27, irna -- the following is excerpts of an question-and-answer meeting held at sharif technical university between the leader of the islamic revolution ayatollah seyed ali khamenei and the univeristy students.
q- "i had a question about social justice. despite your remarks over the past few years, the issue over overshadowed by political games. isn't it the time to raise the issue and inqure about the assets of individuals and start it from the statesmen and then other
people?"
a. "that's a good question. it is easy in words, but, difficult in practice. as soon as you start from statesmen, of course they will complain and protest. i strongly believe that we should raise the issue of social justice. there is no doubt, the judicial system and the government organizations should follow it. a part of the issue should be solved by good legislations, a part by executive organs, and auditory bodies. "some work are being done and i have already asked questions from the judiciary in this respect. the answer was that they are doing some work, but i am not satisfied with the slow process and of course it will not satisfy you," the supreme leader told the students.
q. "what is the practical way out of existing economic difficulties, unemployment and housing shortages. does the doctrine of the slamic economy really work?"
a. "yes, we have the doctrine of the islamic economy. some books have been written on this issue. the state-controlled economy initiated in the early days of the islamic revolution was in accordance with the islamic economy. i think the economic difficultiescan be solved. we have acceptable programs in this respect. president khatami has worked with a group of specialists and provided a program for the economy, envisaged in the third five-year development plan. i am confident that the program will improve the economic situation."
asked about the status of the special clerics court, the leader said "the special clerics court is legal. the clerics like the other people are vulnerable and a court is required to examine the accusations raised against the clerics, because it can well investigate the charge of another cleric, since the judge is well informed of the principles that the clerics should observe. "those who say the special court for the clerics did not exist during the late imam khomeini's time, are mistaken. the late imam himself gave authority to form the special court for the clerics."
q: do you see the performance of clerics court as fair?
a: its performance is legal; i can not really make a judgment about the ruling issued in every single case whether the ruling is 100 percent fair or not; but as far as i have seen there has not been any unfair decision made on the part of the court; if there happens to be any evidence showing the unfair performance of the court, of course it can be followed up.
q: is existence of such a court in accordance with the constitution?
a: yes, and completely; if clerics court has not been in accordance with the constitution during 17 years of its existence, certainly continuation of court would have stopped. q: how long do you plan to remain silent against different political factions destroying unity; of course i know that you do warn them but now that with the grace of all-mighty god president khatami has been able to show the peaceful picture of iran to the world, is it not better to create an atmosphere in the country for the government to do its job; if we are muslims; if the political factions like to do good deed in iran is it not better to strengthen islam instead of weakening each other?
a: i strongly agree with the person asking the question; fortunately about the issue you have raised i have not been silent; i repeatedly have talked to different political factions whether in their own meetings or in joint meetings or else i have talked about it in the friday prayers that let the feelings of people be a driving force for all factions to move towards unity; by unity i do not mean for all factions to exist as one entity but for all factions to cooperate and let things move forward.
q: does your support of government and person of president khatami also mean believing in the policies of government and person of the president?
a: i have supported president khatami and continue to do so; i see it as a commitment; i also support the government as a whole. of course there are individuals in the government with whose policies i do not agree; they know it themselves and the people in charge know it also; the people might not be aware of it or it might not be necessary; but for those who needed to know, they knew it; i have made criticism when i saw necessary; at times that i felt necessary, i reacted accordingly; but as far as i have so far seen from the performance of government there is nothing wrong with it.
q: if there should be some difficulty in policies and performances, should one express it? how? how can one express it without being accused of going against your words in support of the government?
a: i have never prevented criticism; there is nothing wrong with honest and responsible criticism... if we look upon certain people as being able to solve, say the problems of the economy, we ought to support them ... if we do not support them, how can we expect that they will do what we expect them to do? i think it is every one's duty to support the people in
charge of the country. of course, only as long as they move in line with the policies of islam and of the imam. any one who deviates from the path of islam and the imam does not deserve our support; this is same for every one from top to bottom; this also goes for me if god forbid i deviate from the path of islam it will not be necessary for the people to support me; in case of misunderstanding it should not be a reason for people to stop their support for the people in charge of the country. i would like you all to know that the power of this country is due to the fact that people and government are as one; nowhere in the world can you find this unity; even in democratic countries you cannot witness officials... to sit down and have an intimate and sincere talk with the people without people being afraid of the official and without the official having any fear and without his feeling alienated from the people. this, too, we have because of islam and religion. the unity between the government and the people is as the result of the islam. it is the one thing that we should not miss. the inter-relation between the people and government administrators, and the support of the government for the people and of the people for the government as well as the pleasantly affective relations between the two of them is highly valuable..."

leader says powers still antagonize revolutionary islam (24.11.1999)

tehran, nov. 24, irna -- the leader of the islamic revolution, ayatollah seyed-ali khamenei, here wednesday congratulated the iranians on the occasion of the birthday anniversary of the 12th imam of shi'te muslims, hazrat mahdi, (now in occultation) and reminded that the islamic revolution had proved its capacity to rid peoples from the tyranny of arrogant world powers. in his address on the occasion of the day that was carried live on the national radio and television networks wednesday, ayatollah khamenei addressing thousands of basijis and the nation at large at tehran's uptown congregational prayers hall (mossalla) for special
occasions said every free-man throughout the world who is fair and justice-seeking would certainly crave for the global establishment of justice and annihilation of all forms of inequities. he said the purpose of all prophets was to raise the banner of monotheism, justice and equity and let it prevail in the human societies. the leader of the islamic revolution said that the twelfth imam of shi'ite muslims is the fountain of all blessings, knowledge, beauty and goodness for the humanity, and added that every believer believing in the continuing existence of his holiness hazrat mahdi in the world and feeling a spiritual inter-relation with him feels also that he has the greatest assets on earth.

he said today the humanity is plagued by tyranny and oppression more than it was at any other time of the history, that in light of improved learning of men and of their better intellectual preparation for learning the humanity today is closer to the re-advent of the twelfth imam, and that consequently the humans are steadily looking up to his eventual re-advent. ayatollah khamenei paid a personal tribute to the basijis, saying that their professional designation is truly a high title, but added that every other man and woman with religious faith and a religiously enlightened heart feeling a responsibility for the people and for the banner of islam is to be considered a true basiji. he said over the past two decades the muslim umma had been experiencing new blood in their veins as the result of the words of imam khomeini while the arrogant world powers had felt totally confused at their confrontation with the surging islamic revolution. he said those powers still continue to antagonize a revolutionary islam that is manifesting itself in such national qualities as honor, genuine national identity, power and valor, because, he said, it was the same islam that cut off their hands from iran and that divested them of their hold on the national resources of the country. before his address to the basijis on the occasion of the religious feast of 'milad hazrat mahdi' here wednesday, brigadier general seyed-mohammad hejazi commander of the basij resistance force congratulated the leader on the occasion of the day, and also offered a brief report on recent organizational developments with the basij, and their marking of the day throughout the country.

leader: irgc, target of global arrogance hostility (13.11.1999)

tehran, nov. 13, irna -- the leader of islamic revolution, ayatollah ali khamenei here on saturday said the islamic revolution guards corps (irgc) is one of the organs to which the world arrogance holds hostile attitude. addressing thousands of the rank and file of the islamic revolution guards corps (irgc) on the occasion of 'pasdar' (irgc) week, the supreme leader said faith, purity and piety are spiritual factors of power adding that the spiritual power will remain forever throughout history. the birthday anniversary of imam hussein ibn ali (a.s.), the third imam of prophet mohammad's (peace be upon him) infallible household
is celebrated in iran as 'pasdar' day. referring to various events occurring in history of human beings, the leader laid emphasis on weakness of material factors of power and eternity of spiritual factors. the power, shaped by such spiritual factors as faith, belief, jihad (holy war) and the divine and religious values, serve as a determining factor in destiny of human beings because this is the same power, which remains eternal in history, and insures the same trend of divine messengers' teachings, the leader added. the leader said that arrogant powers have launched all-out campaign to eliminate the religious sovereignty from mankind's life. religious sovereignty and domination of religious values in this part of the world is a lesson for world nations, said the supreme leader, adding that the world powers have concentrated their efforts on cracking down the religious values, the eternal lessons for the mankind.

''but there are some who fail to understand the meaning and concept of such a movement,'' regretted the leader. the leader said: ''you struggled for the sake of a great fact and emerged triumphant and today if you decide and rely on the almighty god, the enemy will not gain any success in its misleading activities.'' ayatollah khamenei said today, the enemies have entered the scene of battle against the islamic system (of iran) with all their military, political, publicity and cultural means. however, one can understand clearly, that enemy has got disappointed of harming this system, the leader added. the supreme leader said that enemy has pinned hope on possible negligence of officials of a system and indulgence in insignificant issues and profit making affairs. this is the biggest calamity of a nation, the leader warned. concluding his remarks, the leader called on the state and military officials to work hard and avoid being engaged in minor
issues.

leader:abandonment of purely personal motives, prerequisite for divine rule (6.11.1999)

tehran, nov 6, irna -- the leader of the islamic revolution, ayatollah seyed-ali khamenei, told a group of visiting government officials here sunday that for the global promotion of islam and islamic learning it is necessary to trust in god and abandon all forms of preferences that have their roots in selfishness, or in ethnic or purely political interests. ayatollah seyed-ali khamenei who was addressing a large group of visiting government officials headed by president hoajatoleslam mohammad khatami on the auspicious occasion of the anniversary of 'mab'ath' or the divine appointment of prophet mohammad (pbuh) to the prophethood, advised the officials and the people of the country to arrive at a genuine unity round the axis of the tenets of islam. in his address to the visiting officials, the leader of the
islamic revolution reminded them and the nation at large that to set materials goals for oneself and to pursue those goals is the root of all misfortunes. he said he expects government administrators and muslims at large to not set material and privately personal goals for themselves and instead give priority to intellectual, religious and divine ideals and to a perfection based on those values. the leader of the islamic revolution addressing himself to the visiting officials and the public at large said that since the triumph of the islamic revolution in 1979 where the officials and the people appreciated their religious duties and placed their first preference on their fulfillment of those preferences they were successful, and whenever the motive and the propulsive force behind the acts of officials was their self-interests and their egoism, they and the nation suffered loss. he said today the divine proofs are manifest before the eyes of the people, and the administrators of the state shoulder the responsibility to protect a system in iran the establishment of which had long since been the wish of all reformers in the muslim world. in a brief opening statement at the start of the audience, president hojatoleslam mohammad khatami felicitated the leader of the islamic revolution on the occasion of the annual feast of mab'ath.

leader: three events on november 4 betrayed u.s. hegemonic nature (3.11.1999)

tehran, nov. 3, irna -- leader of the islamic revolution ayatollah seyed ali khamenei said on wednesday that the u.s. administration is symbol of arrogance and that the anti-arrogance campaign is the innate part of the islamic revolution. in a meeting with thousands of students on the eve of the national day of the anti-arrogance campaign (november 4), the supreme leader said the national day marks the anniversary of three events in the iranian history, the imposition of capitulation law by the u.s. in 1964, opening fire on the students' anti-shah rally in 1978 and the activation of the u.s. espionage apparatus after victory of the islamic revolution which led to takeover of the u.s. embassy in tehran in november 4, 1979. the three events indicated the hegemonic and arrogant face of the united states on the one hand and the oppression suffered by the iranian nation on the other, the leader said. the national day of the anti-arrogance campaign is very important, deep-rooted and a subject for contemplation, the supreme leader said adding that the anti-arrogance campaign is a new term in the political dictionary of the world and the students are required to discuss about the word of arrogance and the anti-arrogance campaign. on campaign against the world arrogance, the leader said ''the courage, national identity and sense of honor are the key factors in the campaign against the world arrogance adding that the world arrogance targets national identity, culture, religious belief, independence, government and economy of a nation to gain dominance over a country. this is what that happened to iran before the islamic revolution.'' ayatollah khamenei said the iranian nation opened the way to stand against the world arrogance and now the nations do what they can to safeguard their national identity and existence by opposing the u.s.


the supreme leader said the media empire influenced by the international zionism blocks broadcasting accurate news about the resistance to colonialism and the arrogance across the world. "the radios broadcasting news in different languages are part of the media empire set up by the big capitalists and the zionists to mislead the nations by blocking broadcast of real news. nonetheless, the nations stand against the interference of the world arrogance," ayatollah khamenei said. the leader said, "the iranian nation enjoying the religious faith stood against the corrupt regime backed by the u.s. and that the religious faith had a key part in the victory of the nation." referring to the iran-u.s. relations, the leader said it is a big mistake and illusion to think that through resumption of relations with the u.s., the economic difficulties would come to an end. the difficulties facing the iranian nation now are the results of the time when the u.s. and britain had dominance over iran, the leader said.

the most bitter experience that the iranians have dates back to the period of 1953-1979, the time when the u.s. plundered the iranian assets, the leader said adding that no doubt that relations with a government which has arrogant objectives would bring nothing to the nation. the leader said the americans have already said they are willing to have normal relations with iran, but, they hid the goal of their desire, but, recently a u.s. statesman has said naively that resolving the problem between iran and israel is a precondition for setting up of iran-u.s. relations. this is what the u.s. follows in relation with any country especially with iran which has stood firmly in the campaign against israel.
the supreme leader said the zionists are the directors of the u.s. policymaking and israel is a cancerous tumor whose presence among the muslim nations has brought the greatest misery for the muslims. "the u.s. is not honest in its alleged desire to have relations with iran. they want relations with iran to dictate and impose their policy on iran," the leader said. "the iranian nation and government have announced that they want to live independently with no need for permission from any other power, in order to go ahead with their great goals; therefore, they will defend their goals resolutely and will pay no heed to the desire of the international tyranny," the leader made it clear. the leader said those who had no objection to capitulation, and condemned the student's action in taking over the spy den (u.s. embassy) do not believe in the national identity, and dignity and do not understand the benevolence of national independence and progress of the nation. they are forgettable minority who are working in line with the propaganda of the enemies, the leader pointed out. "today, the u.s. has no plan for iran except its arrogant schemes and no doubt that the iranian nation will oppose the return of the pre-revolution situation," ayatollah khamenei maintained.
the leader called on the youth to look into the goals of the enemy and added that some are working to turn november 4, the national day of anti-arrogance campaign to the day of leniency towards the u.s. if we do not want to say they are commiting treason. of course it is out of naivety and negligence," the leader said. :irna 03/11/99 18:24
