Meeting a huge gathering of nurses, teachers and workers

(2009/04/29)

Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that in spite of enemy efforts to dent the upcoming presidential elections, the great Iranian nation will produce such a huge turnout that leaves enemy in fury.

In a speech to a huge gathering of nurses, teachers and workers from across the country, Ayatollah Khamenei said the despotic kings of Qajar and Pahlavi used to consider the country and people as their property and in absence of people, only what they wished would turn from ceremonial ballot boxes however the Islamic Revolution turned the page and handed the power to people.

The IR Leader said in the course of the thirty-year-old Islamic Revolution, people's vote directly or indirectly has had key role in the choosing of all the country's authorities however the enemies cut out of their illegitimate interests have kept to ignore or deny the blessing public role and instead tried to question the Iranian elections.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the Iranian elections were freer and more enthusiastic than many of the so-called democratic countries. He regretted that while healthy elections have always been staged in Iran, some unfair compatriots who suppose people to heed their call are making shabby comments against the nation and by repeating the enemy lies question the health of elections.

Ayatollah Khamenei said all authorities and people helped secure the health of previous elections, adding that in one or two elections before, there were questions for some individuals over the elections but more investigations proved they were healthy.

Ayatollah Khamenei then said "many a time elections results have run counter to a ruling party so how one can move to question the elections."

Ayatollah Khamenei expressed hope that God-willing the nation as a whole would go to presidential ballot and would create a vote which infuriates the enemy.

Ayatollah Khamenei in another part of his speech called teachers, nurses and workers as key strata in society. The IR Leader said teachers are entrusted with children and play a key role in building their personality, hence their invaluable role.

Ayatollah Khamenei urged the society and government to value the role of teachers, adding that teachers too must value their occupation.

Ayatollah Khamenei then said the structure of the education ministry must undergo a dramatic change so that it could respond to traditions and needs of the country. He said the experiences of other countries, including the west should be used in this regard but no imitation should take place.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the situation was opportune to push the change through the ministry with respect to the stable status of the country, adding that the government must innovatively and bravely put to action a package of studies it has already carried out in this regard.

Ayatollah Khamenei also underlined the issue of nurturing in education, adding that the mind of children could also needs nurture and the issue must be considered in textbooks, selection of teachers, and the education system.

The IR Leader also urged the ministry to consider quality matters in expansion of educational services.

Ayatollah Khamenei then praised the status and role of nurses and urged people to appreciate the individuals whom he described as angle-like.

He said nurses and midwives have a key role in the country's health system and urged them to appreciate their occupation and value their services.

Ayatollah Khamenei also called workers as a pivot of society and urged promotion of domestic production through appreciation of role workers, employers and managers of labor units.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the real price of using foreign made commodities was continued work of Iranian laborers in other countries and job loss inside the country. Ayatollah Khamenei said the Iranian workers enjoy ability to design and implement most complicated plans and produce quality goods.

The IR Leader then urged provision of job security for workers and underlined how it may affect the quality of production.

"Consumption of domestic products must be considered as a value inside society and in order to materialize the issue, domestic products must improve, foreign goods must not be advertised, employers must be appreciated, and all elements of production and imports must cooperate with each other," Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Supreme Leader's Message on the Terrorist Attack on Iranian Pilgrims in Iraq

24/04/2009

Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution issued a message of condolence on the occasion of the tragic terrorist event which led to the martyrdom of the innocent pilgrims to the holy shrines in Iraq. The full text of the message is as follows:

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The tragic terrorist event which led to the martyrdom of the innocent pilgrims to the holy shrines in Iraq filled with grief the hearts of those who seek prosperity and salvation in following the path of the Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) and his household - those whose hearts are brimful of love for the Prophet's household. The disgraceful people who committed this appalling crime and who have the blood of these innocent pilgrims on their hands should know that they chose the satisfaction of devils over that of God's saints. They should know that they are engulfed in the flames of God's wrath. "And truly hell encompasses the disbelievers" [The Holy Quran, 9: 49].

The filthy hands and wicked minds which have spread such blind and uncontrollable terrorism in Iraq should know that they will also be engulfed in these flames, and their evil intentions will rebound on themselves, as was the case in some other Islamic countries.

The main suspects in this crime and similar other crimes are the American security forces who have occupied an Islamic country under the pretext of fighting terrorism in a tyrannical manner. They have massacred thousands of people, and have constantly increased insecurity in that country. The growth of the poisonous weeds of terrorism in Iraq will undoubtedly be put on America's criminal record and the American and Israeli intelligence services are the main suspects.

We expect the Iraqi government to seriously oppose such crimes and to provide maximum security for the pilgrims to the holy shrines in Iraq.

Those who were killed in this event are the martyrs of Imam Hussein's path and will hopefully be rewarded by Allah the Exalted. However, the hearts of their families are brimful of grief. I hereby extend my condolences to all those who were bereaved by this event, especially to the families of the martyrs. I pray to Allah the Exalted to aid the recovery of those who were injured in the event.

Venezuela at Latam Forefront

5.4.2009

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei talks with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez (C) in Tehran on Saturday, while President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad looks on.


Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Saturday commended the courage, justice-seeking and humanitarian stances of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

“Your coming to power in Venezuela marked a new chapter in the history of Latin America and the courage of the government and people of Venezuela helped create self-reliance among the people in the region,“ the leader told Chavez, www.leader.ir reported.

Ayatollah Khamenei praised the valor of the Venezuelan leader and his government vis-ˆ-vis the Gaza crisis and Caracas’ decision to cut ties with the Zionist regime.

“What the Venezuelan government did was in essence the duty of European governments which often boast of advocating human rights É, but unfortunately European governments took a reverse course during the genocide in Gaza,“ he noted.

The leader characterized America as accomplice of the Zionist regime in the slaughter of innocent people in the tiny Palestinian costal city earlier this year and pointed to the fury of the arrogant powers toward Venezuela’s stance in the Gaza war.

“The anger of arrogant powers and their stance against us reveals that we have influence (on the global scene),“ he pointed out.

The leader also referred to the propaganda launched against Iran’s nuclear energy program in recent years and said, “In this case also the anger of arrogant front shows that Iran’s access to nuclear technology is an effective measure for fortifying the virtuous stance in global equations.

Westerners know that we are not after the atomic bomb, their anger is mainly because a country has acquired nuclear technology without their permission.“

He noted that bilateral ties in various sectors are good.

“However, both countries possess vast potential for bolstering cooperation and there also is potential for transforming bilateral ties into multilateral collaboration,“ he noted.

Chavez, for his part, expressed gratitude for having the opportunity to once again meet Ayatollah Khamenei and said that he is a student of leaders of the Islamic Revolution.

“We have learned a great deal from the political experience of the Iranian government and people in resisting foreign enemies and imperialism and will strongly continue our struggle for maintaining our independence,“ he said.
