TEHRAN (FNA 27.1.2010)- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution
Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Tuesday reminded the hostile policies and
animosities shown by the US administrations and Zionists towards the
Iranian nation, and cautioned that no one should ever pin hope or trust in
such inimical states.
"During the past 30 years, US administrations, the Zionist regime (of
Israel) and worldwide Zionists have been the most hostile enemies of the
Iranian nation and they are, in fact, the most hostile enemies of Iran
today as well, and relying on these enemies is a big mistake," Ayatollah
Khamenei said at a meeting in Tehran with a large and fervent congregation
of the people, religious figures and officials who came from the city of
Amol in Iran's northern province of Mazandaran to pay homage to the
"When enemy enters the scene, we should pay attention to situation and
correct our deeds if we have been or done anything wrong," the Supreme
Ayatollah Khamenei further cautioned that enemies, despite their
previous failures, are hatching a new plot against the Iranian nation.
"Americans say that they have ratified a $45-million budget to overcome
the Islamic Republic of Iran through internet, and this shows enemy's
complete despondency since they have already spent tens of these
$45-million budgets to confront the Islamic establishment through
diplomatic campaign, sanctions, espionage, hiring hirelings and
mercenaries and other methods, but, they have never gained any fruit."
Addressing the West, the Leader underscored that the Iranian nation
would stand firm in attaining its rights and would never backtrack on this
"The Iranian nation wants to be an independent, dynamic, progressive
and powerful nation to fulfill Islamic laws and defend its rights and
beliefs," he reiterated.
Earlier in November, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined the necessity for
proper measures to repel enemy's soft war against Iran.
"Today, the main priority of the country is to confront (enemy's) soft
warfare which is aimed at creating doubt, discord and pessimism among the
masses of people," Ayatollah Khamenei said.
"Given the failure of the arrogant powers in the hard confrontation
with the Islamic ruling system in the first decade after the (Islamic)
Revolution, soft war has now come on the enemy's agenda, so confrontation
against enemy's soft war is the main priority today," the Leader noted.
"In soft war, enemy seeks to create doubt, pessimism and discord by
spreading rumors and lies and using certain excuses through advanced
cultural and communication means," Ayatollah Khamenei noted.

Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting
with thousands of people from northern Mazandaran province Tuesday said
there are many lessons in historical events that the nation could take in
its future path, adding that different plots of enemy were futile during
the past due to the faith and vigilance of people.

aspirations because they were unprepared for facing with the challenges
ahead and therefore their history could teach us to be ready for the

opponents of the Islamic System have made two major mistakes; they
considered themselves superior to people and have relied on the enemies of

opponents to brand any legal action or choice of people as populist. The
IR Leader added that the opponents of the System were seriously wrong in
their reliance on enemies.

evidently futile, adding that a clear proof to the argument was that the
Islamic Republic of Iran was many times more powerful than the early
revolutionary period and keeps its path more robustly.
Ayatollah Khamenei expressed wonder that the enemies fail to take
lesson from their past records and continue to push their plots against
the Iranian nation.
"American authorities say they have approved a 45 million dollar budget
to defeat the Islamic Republic through the Internet. This is the height of
frustration of enemy because they have already spent many 45 million
dollar sums in their fight against the Islamic System through diplomacy,
sanctions, dispatching of spies, recruitment of henchmen and other methods,
all futile," the IR Leader said.
The Leader of Islamic Revolution referred to enemies' inability to
comprehend the reality of 1979 Revolution and power of the masses as the
will of God and said the enemies of Iranian nation had long planned to
incite riots in Tehran, but their efforts only made people become more
determined in defending the Islamic Republic.
Ayatollah Khamenei asserted that recent events caused people to feel
more obliged to defend the Islamic Republic.
The Leader of Islamic Revolution said some of the enemy plots were
designed to make the Islamic Republic to budge, adding however that the
Islamic administration will not budge to enemy and the late Imam Khomeini

rights and added that Iranians want to be a free, independent, and

the people have learned since the revolution has proven this.

Revolution noted as the crucial duty of the people and officials
especially the younger generation and those influential in the society.
The Leader of Islamic revolution added that everyone ought to feel
responsible in defending the Islamic Republic of Iran and the December 30
rallies were the manifestation of this sense of responsibility. He added
that people will show their liveliness in the forthcoming February 11
"The heads of three powers in the country should think of serving the
nation with prudence as their solemn duty and should not let anything
deter them in their task," The Leader of Islamic Revolution said and added
that the country's forward movement shouldn't be obstructed.
Ayatollah Khamenei also spoke of numerous evidences that show the hand
of God is behind the nation. He expressed hope that with the help of God
and Imam Mahdi's praying the nation will achieve its lofty goals.
