The bloody terrorist incident in Zahedan which led to the martyrdom and injury of a number of worshippers and followers of the Holy Prophet's Household (Peace be upon them) caused me great sadness, heartache and dismay. Murdering faithful and innocent individuals who had gathered in the House of God to worship and supplicate, followers of the Holy Prophet's Household (Peace be upon them), is an enormous crime, whose perpetrators, their accomplices and facilitators God Almighty will not forgive easily. Those who have committed this terrorist crime, although they may be ignorant, misguided or angry, they have committed a big crime, and there is no doubt that those who have aided and abetted this crime, providing support for the terrorists, such as some 'interventionist powers', and their intelligence and spying agencies, are stained with the blood of the innocent victims of this bloody terror attack.

In his message the Supreme Leader said one of the persistent aims of the enemies of Iran has always been to stoke tensions, sedition, and fratricide among Muslim communities in this region, and in Iran in particular. He said it is only through vigilance that these plots can be foiled.

19.5.2009

TEHRAN (FNA)- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Tuesday lashed out at enemy efforts to sow discord between the Islamic Republic of Iran and other Muslim countries.

"Vigilance of the (Iranian) nation, including the Kurds, has defused this plot in the country, and although this trap proved efficient with regard to some Muslim governments affiliated to the world arrogance, nations, thinkers, intellectuals and scholars of the Muslim world call Iran as the honor and glory of the Muslim Ummah (community) and this reality has made the bullying powers paralyzed, perplexed and frustrated," Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated addressing a large gathering of the local residents on the eighth and last day of his tour of the western Kurdistan province.

The supreme Leader also called on all Iranians to be on the alert against enemies' plots to sow discord between Shiites and Sunnites, and warned that any blasphemy and insult to the Shiites or Sunnites' sanctuaries and beliefs is a violation of the Islamic Republic's red line.

"No one has the right to trespass this red line because of negligence or prejudice, since anyone who steps over this line will, knowingly or unknowingly, turn into a tool in the hands of the enemies," he cautioned.

He referred to the United States' organized plots in the western borders of Iran and its information, financial and military backup for the terrorists, and urged the entire nation, specially the Kurdish population, to maintain and enhance vigilance.

"The United States is promoting terrorism behind Iran's western borders... the US administration directly finances operations and organizes terrorist movements to undermine the Islamic Republic," the Leader said on the 8th day of his tour of Iran's western province of Kurdistan.

Ayatollah Khamenei underlined that in the fourth decade of the Revolution, development and justice should be turned into a national discourse upon which a national pattern would be implemented. So we could take big steps at the end of this decade.

The IR Leader noted that the true meaning of development is different from what is called progress in the west and said that they may have some common points which should be considered.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that dividing the countries into advanced, progressive and non-developed ones is a western trick adding that in this pattern the real meaning of development has accompanied with the western values. In this pattern an advanced country is merely a western country but we completely reject this conception.

The IR Leader said that historical, political, human, cultural and geographical conditions determine the development pattern of every country adding that regarding many differences in the conditions of the countries, it is impossible to offer a single pattern for all countries.

Ayatollah Khamenei noted that regarding our special culture and history, we can not follow the patterns of America, western Europe or northern America but it is necessary to draw a native pattern. The main duty in this regard is upon thinkers and university students.

Pointing to some advantages of the western development pattern, the IR Leader underlined that we follow our native pattern but we should not ignore some advantages of the western pattern including innovation, risk taking, discipline and braveness for action.

Touching on link between development and justice, Ayatollah Khamenei said that in western patterns, growth of gross national income (GNI) is among important criteria but if it increases in a country under injustice, the real development has not created.

The IR Leader noted that according to the Islamic view, human has two material and spiritual dimensions. The two dimensions are needed for offering the true development pattern, so the pattern which is based on the material view is completely different form the true development pattern.

Ayatollah Khamenei urged the students to avoid dependence on the political powers as the first condition for development and preserving the true development pattern.

The IR Leader rejected the way of some countries which have made some progress but follow approach of big power and said that following America and others is not sign of development and has no value because over the issue of national development, the independence of the country is the main priority.

Ayatollah Khamenei rejected the meaning of globalization as turning into some tolls in hand of western capitalism and added that the countries should keep their independence in this regard.

The IR Leader termed producing science as another prerequisite for the true development pattern and said that we should make balance between scientific exports and imports like economic issues.

Ayatollah Khamenei lauded the scientific achievements within three past decades and expressed his pleasure over the issue of producing science at universities.

The IR Leader urged for speeding up the scientific movement in all fields as well as theorization in different fields including in the human sciences so that we could add to the human knowledge.

Ayatollah Khamenei advised the university students to make efforts to confront with colonial power centers as another prerequisite for development and said that without touching on new scientific fields, no progress would be achieved.

The IR Leader also slammed silence of the global arrogance and international organizations such as the United Nations on the crimes and atrocities of the Zionist regime during the 22-day war in Gaza, IRIís legitimate rights to make use of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes and mass killing of innocent civilians by the American troops in some neighboring states.

"World nations should learn lessons from the Iranian nation which strongly condemned the crimes and atrocities of the American and Zionists in international for a but unfortunately some people in the country feel shame over the nation's stances like some people who felt shame for saying prayers in public during the Pahlavi era," Ayatollah Khamenei added.

"IRIís explicit stand on global developments is a source of pride for this generation," the IR Leader said.

Ayatollah Khamenei also advised the university students to do their utmost to bring more scientific success and development for the country.

The IR Leader reiterated that firm and clear stances of the Iranian nation over the global developments should be put forward with proud to make the world people become more aware of the glory of the nation and the Islamic system.

Ayatollah Khamenei also ordered the Health and Science Ministers to pursue the suggestions of the Kordestan province's professors and the university students.

The IR Leader urged for more connection and meeting between officials and the university students to find more ways for development of the country through such meetings.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the enemy did his utmost efforts to make the Kords separate from other races but the enthusiastic gathering of Kord people in Sannandaj and Marivan proved that all races of the country are united and follow the Islamic and national causes of the country.

Ayatollah Khamenei termed variety of races as an opportunity for the country and said the Iranian races including Fars, Turk, Lor, Balouch, Arab and Turkmen can play their role for development of the country and become source of blesses for the country

On his fifth day of visit to Kurdistan Province, he said the glorious future belongs to the youths; a matter that will be materialized by relying on Islamic, national and indigenous principles and through avoiding foreign prescriptions.

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the weakness of management methods in western countries as a main reason of the West's capitalist system's failure to encounter economic crises and reiterated that any dependence on the outsiders' instructions is contrary to the country's national interests and may damage its independence, dignity and prosperity.

Recalling the chemical attacks and other crimes unleashed by Saddam in the course of the Iraqi imposed war on Iran, he termed the bitter events during eight years of sacred defense in Iran's western borders, including Kurdistan, as big tests that proved the deceptive and false claims by Saddam's supporters and the so-called advocates of human rights.

The Supreme Leader further referred to confessions by world's politicians and policy-makers concerning the important status of the Islamic Republic of Iran in regional and international equations as an indication of the country's stability and power, reiterating that the Islamic government is in a position that can concentrate on long-term plans for progress and flourishing.

Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in Marivan

(2009/05/16)

On the fifth day of his visit to Kurdistan province, the Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei regarded national dignity as a very effective factor in the brilliant future of the Iranian people.

Addressing a very enthusiastic gathering of the faithful, affectionate and brave people of Marivan, the IR Leader stressed: "The glorious future belongs to the youths and it has to be be fulfilled by relying on Islamic, national and indigenous recipes and avoiding alien recipes."

In this gathering that was organized in Marivan's Zagros stadium, Ayatollah Khamenei regarded fighting the aliens that seek the nation's humiliation and abjection as a prerequisite for national dignity and said: "The enemies of this great land see no benefit for themselves in the progress and glory of Islamic Iran; therefore, any dependence to alien-written recipes is against national interests and would destroy the country's independence, dignity and prosperity."

The IR Leader regarded the inability of the Western capitalism in confronting economic crises as a clear reason for the weakness of management methods in Western countries, adding: "The officials, the people and especially the youth and thinkers should contemplate on this reality."

He considered the pure Islam, namely the Islam of Qoran, Sunna and Ahl-ul-Bait as the base and original recipe for the movement and progress of the nation and system, stressing: "We do not call anyone to the petrified and narrow-minded Islam, but the Islam that we regard as treatment for pains and guarantee for the country's progress and glory is an Islam that calls the human being to thinking and contemplation and is able to create a historical and magnificent movement like the Islamic Revolution."

Ayatollah Khamenei criticized those who in different times including in election periods, repeat the Westerners' remarks to attract people's attention, adding: "Such remarks are not considered as privilege. They are opposition to the Islamic-Iranian thought and identity."

In another part of his speech, he termed Kordestan and Marivan as a land full of glory, braveness and natural beauty, and full of the feeling of affection and loyalty, saying: "I regard this area as one of the gifts and blessings that God has granted to the country and the system."

Referring to his visit to Marivan and surrounding area in 1980 at the peak of Baathist Saddam's attack on Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei said: "The enemies of this nation's progress relying on hireling and dependent agents wanted to create a deep valley of suspicion between the people of this very important and sensitive area and the people of other parts of the country, but the faithful, zealous and loyal Kords foiled this conspiracy very well. The young generation of the country and the area should become very well familiar with these instructive realities."

Reminding Saddam's war crimes including his chemical attacks, the IR Leader regarded the bitter incidents of eight years of sacred defense in western areas including Kordestan as a big laboratory for proving the deception and insincerity of Saddam's supporters and the claimants of human rights.

"The ups and downs of thirty years of the Iranian people's perseverance and victory should be explained as instructive lessons for the youths, so that the weight and real nature of today's propaganda of the arrogance become clearer for them," he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei considered the admittance by the world's politicians and policy-makers to the regional and global position of the Islamic Republic of Iran as a sign for the stability and power of the country.

"The Islamic system, by God's help, is in a position that it can focus on long-period projects of progress and prosperity," he stressed.

The IR Leader termed the 20-year prospect document as the guide, director and real agenda for the officials of different forces and organizations and said: "In order to achieve the goals of this very credible and important document, both the officials and people bear great responsibilities, and we should be cautious that the enemies of the country's progress do not distract the minds to marginal issues."

Ayatollah Khamenei then noted that the province was in need of industrial and agricultural investment, especially in light of the hazards of joblessness in the area which among others include a tendency among the youths for smuggling induced by poor job opportunities.

Ayatollah Khamenei then noted that security was a prerequisite for investment and wealth production, adding that enemies would try to hinder any investment in the area through creation of insecurity however the powerful force of Islamic Republic with the help of valiant and loyal youths of the province will take a tough line on any spawners of insecurity.

The IR Leader then noted that the Kordestan visit was a bid to attract public attention to the talented, green and scenic area and expand affective ties among different Iranian ethnicities. He noted that Kord, Fars, Tork, Lor, and Baluch form a unified body called the great Iranian nation.

Ayatollah Khamenei concluded his remarks by noting that the nation and system would be viable once the nation and authorities attend to Islamic Revolution's aspirations non-stop.

"A mutual trust and affinity among the Kordish brethren towards Iran is tangible also on the other side of the border however the enemy has not rested its conspiracy," Ayatollah Khamenei warned, urging the Kordish people to enhance their preparedness

Religious scholars must keep abreast of time

13.5.2009

Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with religious scholars in Kordestan province Wednesday said the current era was distinct form other eras owing to two major phenomena of complicated methods of intellectual exchanges and the Islamic government in Iran. He urged the scholars to utilize the two in fulfilling their heavy responsibilities of promotion of justice and fight against oppression and corruption.

In the meeting which was held in Sanandaj grand mosque, Ayatollah Khamenei called religious scholars as forerunners of reforms and progress of the nation, adding that the duties of the scholars besides promotion of the statute was also to stand against those who have imposed themselves on the nations as idols.

Elaborating on the special characteristics of the present time, Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the emergence of new methods and means of exchange of ideas and thoughts, adding that the arrogance besides rattling saber of intimidation is using all modern communication and cultural facilities at hand to impose its false thoughts on the nations. Ayatollah Khamenei noted that against the complicated onslaught, the scholars must keep up to date with time.

Ayatollah Khamenei then warned about some efforts by aliens to stuff the mind of youths with wrong ideas and urged the scholars to counter the intellectual attack with up-to-date methods.

The IR Leader then said that another distinctive feature of the current era was the existence of a Qoran-based government in Iran. "We never claim the government totally follows Qoran however we believe that it moves on a right track," Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding that all people, especially the scholars must make their best of the phenomenal opportunity in expanding Islamic thoughts among the nations.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the aliens failed to realize their two dreams of destroying the Islamic Republic or keeping Iran backward, adding that the Islamic Republic survived all the plots and proved the ability of religious government in advancing the nations, bringing honor to Muslims thank to its own progress in such giant scientific fields as stem cell and sending satellite into orbit.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the arrogance and some reactionary governments in the region are moving against the Islamic government because they see an interest on the part of nations in the Islamic government and an inclination on the part of elites of Islamic world in the Iranian system.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that another sign of scariness of the bully superpowers and their regional mercenaries is that they try to fan Shii-Sunni conflict in a country where the Sunni people have a love for the household of the Messenger of Allah.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the continued aggression of the world arrogance against the Islamic Republic showed how deep a blow it has received from the faithful Iranian people, adding that the Iranian nation has stood like mountains in this regard.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the depth of resolve of the Iranian nation was a token of God's blessing, adding that the blessing doubles the responsibility of the scholars.

Ayatollah Khamenei underlined the necessity of distinguishing enemy from friend. He made an example in this regard, saying that at the peak of the full scale support of the Iranian government and nation to the innocent Palestinian people in the 33-day Gaza war in late 2008, suddenly a destructive viral idea penetrated the society namely that 'Palestinians are enemies of household of Hazrat Muhammad' in a bid to push the Islamic Republic to withdraw support.

On the other side, certain people seek to track possible insults against Sunni sanctities to mar their relationship with Shii people, Ayatollah Khamenei warned, adding that Shii and Sunni scholars must realize the plots and never allow them to ruin their mutual intimacy.

Sample ImageSupreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, addressing a huge congregation in Sanandaj, capital of Kurdistan Province, said today that 'national identity' is among the key factors of real life in an honoured society, and is a bastion against the designs of outsiders.

He was moved at the massive welcome accorded to him by hundreds of thousands of people who line the avenues all the way from the airport to the city's main square, and emphasizing on national identity said: Today the people of Iran take pride for being Iranian Muslims.

Ayatollah Khamenei said world powers have begun to admit that their threats have failed to dent the firm resolve of the proud Iranian people as well as the sacred, mighty system of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

He cautioned against plots of the enemies of the nation who are scheming to sow seeds of sectarian discord, underscoring that persons, who whether knowingly or unwittingly serve the propaganda of the enemies of the nation, are in fact in the camp of the enemies of the nation and Islam.

Emphasizing unity among Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims, Ayatollah Khamenei said: Islam is monolithic and despite the minor differences among the schools of jurisprudence, strives for fraternity and solidarity of mankind.

The Leader lambasted the propaganda of the Salafis who serve the interests of the enemies of Islam by branding fellow Muslims as infidel.

Ayatollah Khamenei deplored that this seditious group terms not just Shi'ite Muslims who follow the path of Prophet's Ahl al-Bayt as infidels, but it also regards as infidels the devoted Sunni Shafei Muslims of Kurdistan and other parts of the world, as the Malekite Sunni Muslims of Africa and of Egypt who revere the Prophet and the Ahl al-Bayt.

He underlined that such seditious acts are totally against Sharia (Islamic Law) and also in contrary to the laws of country.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that only Islamic unity can thwart the plots of Global Arrogance and its agents. To cheers of "Allah-o Akbar" or "God is Greatest" from the massive gathering, the Supreme Leader enumerated the eye-catching progress made by Kurdistan along with the rest of the country in all fields since the victory of the Islamic Revolution, calling the province as a land of faith, culture, and outstanding sacrifices.

He said the Islamic stance of Iran toward the issue of ethnic diversification is deeply rooted in Islamic teachings, calling on different groups and ethnicities to coexist peacefully with each other and move toward Iran's progress through making use of talents and potentials.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution finally said that by turning out massively for the forthcoming presidential polls the people of Iran can again frustrate the designs of the enemies of the Islamic Republic to try to undermine the system.

He also emphasized that the Iranian people and government have chosen the dynamism of Islam to govern their life and will stand steadfastly till the end, not allowing the enemies to make a dent whatever the magnitude of pressures and plots.
