Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a ceremony Tuesday to mark the birth anniversary of Hadhrat Fatema Zahra (S.A.), congratulated the occasion and said the revered personality was an exceptional person following Hadhrat Muhammad (S.A.) and Imam Ali (A.S.)

Ayatollah Khamenei also marked the birth anniversary of Imam Khomeini, which falls on the same day as Hadhrat Fatema's, and called it a sweet coincidence.

Ayatollah Khamenei described Imam Khomeini as an example of the shining personality and a devout, sincere, and resilient person.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the Islamic Revolution has kept its path for the past 32 years despite many problems, thank to clear stances and ideas of Imam Khomeini, adding that no power in the world can stop the revolution if the nation takes its steps firmly.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the Iranian nation has grown hope in the heart of Muslim nation by its continued adherence to values and principles of the Islamic Revolution.

"The flowers of hope would have been weathered if the nation had relinquished its slogans and retreated in the face of the threats of the Arrogance," the IR Leader said.

Western attitude towards women must be challenged


Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with hundreds of Iranian women scholars and top personalities said Islam views women as master of family, adding that the Islamic system must do more to fully revive the genuine, Islamic status of women in society and family.

Ayatollah Khamenei in the meeting which was held on Sunday on the eve of the birth anniversary of Hadhrat Fatema Zahra (S.A.) and the day of women, congratulated the auspicious day and said the gathering of large number of women intellectuals shows the Iranian women were moving towards the apex of perfection and that the Islamic system has succeeded to raise intellectual women who hold their own opinion concerning different social issues.

Ayatollah Khamenei said problems of the world today stemmed largely from the west's wrong attitude towards the status of women in society and family and that the wrong attitude has triggered a crisis.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the west has established an unfair equation in society under which the men are the beneficiary and the women are the benefit, and based on the equation, the women must act in such ways as to satisfy the beneficiary. "This is the most immense oppression ever against women," the IR Leader said.

The IR Leader touched on an organized and gradual drive by the west to instill the nations with such wrong ideas as to status of women, and that to the same effect, if someone moves to condemn such behaviors that are fed by female attractions, he or she would be treated with western media's hue and cry.

Ayatollah Khamenei said another outcome of the western oppressive attitude towards women is its open objection to Hijab. "The west claims that Hijab is a religiously-motivated issue and must not be allowed to appear in atheist societies however its true motivation for that objection is that Hijab challenges its strategic policy in seeking women promiscuity," the IR Leader said.

Ayatollah Khamenei noted that based on official reports of relevant global centers, the western attitude towards women has led to a fragile familial structure, speedy growth of shameful trade in women and the phenomenon of illegitimately-born children. He said the Islamic Republic should expressly and relentlessly challenge the western ideas concerning women and meet its responsibility in defending the true status of women.

As to status of women in the country, Ayatollah Khamenei said a legal lever was needed in order to materialize the Islamic views concerning women and family, adding that despite all good works done since the Islamic Revolution (1979), there were still many deficiencies as to how women must be treated in family.

"The family environment must become a safe, dignified and tranquil one for women so that they could do their best in fulfilling their main task which is to care the family," Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Ayat ollah Khamenei also said the issue of women and family would be set as topic of discussion and research in the seminars on strategic thoughts in the Islamic Republic of which two seminars have already been staged in the presence of the IR Leader.

Ayatollah Khamenei urged the intellectual women to join the seminar, adding that the women-related issue must be studied and tackled based on Islamic teachings and the findings must be followed in future planning.

Meanwhile, in the meeting, 10 intellectual women figures expressed their views concerning different cultural, social and political issues.


Justice must turn into common discussion


A meeting on strategic thoughts in the Islamic Republic was held Tuesday in the presence of Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei where several scholars presented their papers and exchanged views with the IR Leader on the issue of social justice. This is the second meeting on such strategic thoughts ever held.

In the 4-hour session, 10 scholars expressed their views on the notion, aspects and functions of "justice in society".

Next, Ayatollah Khamenei delivered a speech, saying that Iranian intellectuals and thinkers must engage in a serious exchange of views until a genuine Islamic view of justice is developed based on Islamic sources and teachings.

The IR Leader appreciated the overall efforts made in the past three decades for the purpose of social justice in the country, adding however that the current status of justice in society was never satisfying the demands of Islam as the faith seek a maximum implementation of justice as a global value.

Ayatollah Khamenei called the Tuesday session a starting point, adding that the notion of justice must turn into a common discussion among the elites until it bears its blessing fruits.

Ayatollah Khamenei said justice has been a preoccupation for human being throughout history and that unlike many theories made by different intellectuals, divine faiths have played an exceptional role in the expansion of justice worldwide.

Ayatollah Khamenei said in view of the Holy Koran, the divine messengers sought justice as their main aim and that such an attention to justice has never been paid by any human school of thought. "The divine messengers also struggled with oppressors and supported the oppressed besides elucidating the notion of justice while theorists of justice only paid lip services to the concept," the IR Leader said.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the divine faiths also differ from human schools of though in that they beli eve that human history ultimately ends in an era full of justice.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the divine faiths have all depicted a similar track for human being which eventually leads to justice and for the same reason, the issue of justice has found an exceptional status in the Islamic Republic from the advent of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and has been underscored in the national slogans and views of Imam Khomeini (R.A.)

Ayatollah Khamenei said justice has been the foremost objective of the Iranian Islamic System from the outset. He however expressed dissatisfaction over the current status of justice in the society and said that the Islamic Republic seeks a full implementation of justice and removal of the existing gaps based on Islamic views and for that purpose, serious, all-out efforts were needed.

Ayatollah Khamenei also noted that for the Islamic Iran, trial and error approach to social justice was a thing of the past and that from now on, any projects in this do main must be carried out based on a solid platform.

The IR Leader said greater decisions were needed in order to keep the current speedy national progress however the drive must go hand in hand with justice so as to avoid irreparable losses.

Ayatollah Khamenei urged the scholars to avoid any confusion of Islamic views of justice with those of other schools of thought and that the Islamic theory of justice should be purely developed through genuine Islamic sources. Ayatollah Khamenei said every school of thought defines justice based on its own ontology and for the same reason the views of human schools of thought concerning justice must be shunned in the development of the Islamic theory.

"Islam considers implementation of justice as a divine duty unlike human schools of thoughts," he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei also noted that no prejudgment is allowed in the development of the theory and rather the theory must be developed through serious exchange of views between dome stic scholars and the exchange of views must continue even after a theory as such was developed.

The IR Leader said the scholars were expected to arrive at a solid definition and mechanism of justice in the first place so as to be followed up in the future, long-term national projects, and afterwards, newer researches must be conducted to develop possible relevant executive methods.

Ayatollah Khamenei then proposed the university and the Howza (Islamic seminary) establish a course on justice studies and called it a useful investment for implementation of social justice and training of powerful human resources to that effect.

The IR Leader also urged building independent, Islam-based assessment indicators to see whether and to what extents social justice has been materialized, adding that many western indicators in this domain are either incomplete or totally wrong.

The Islamic Revolution Leader also urged the parliament and the Constitutional Guardian Council to heed the issue of justice in their ratifications or verifications, adding that many projects had remained to be carried out for the purpose of social justice.

Ayatollah Khamenei wrapped his remarks by saying that justice could not be implemented in a society which has no belief in God as origin of creation or Day of Resurrection as a day when people are awarded or punished for their deeds. He said every individual in the society was also expected to implement justice in his or her self and that the individual efforts would help keep the person from sins and indirectly advance the social justice.

Vigilance movements to continue to very heart of Europe


Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei said the vigilance movements now underway in west of Asia and northern Africa are a continuation of the grand movement of the Iranian nation.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks on Wednesday morning while receiving thousands of teachers from all over the country who were meeting with him on the occasion of the national Teachers Week.

Islamic Revolution Leader stressed that such movements would undoubtedly continue to the very heart of Europe to awaken and inspire the European nations against their politicians and statesmen who are utterly in service of US and Zionist cultural and economic schemes.

Supreme Leader: Europe to Experience Islamic Awakening Soon


TEHRAN (FNA)- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei stressed on Wednesday that popular uprisings and revolutions sweeping the Middle-East and North of Africa at present will soon spread to the European continent.

Addressing a large number of Iranian teachers and university professors here in Tehran on Wednesday, Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that the growing wave of Islamic awakening in the Middle-East, North Africa and other parts of the Muslim world has been inspired by Iran's Islamic Revolution, and said this awakening will definitely spread to the European countries.

"This awakening move will certainly advance to the very heart of the Europe and the European nations will rise against their politicians and rulers who have fully surrendered to the US and the Zionists' cultural and economic policies," he said.

"The current awakening shows the profoundness of the Iranian nation's great move and if we want it to continue with the same speed and power, we should activate talents, breed resistant people, strengthen faith, insight, awareness and knowledge and further consolidate unity and integrity," Ayatollah Khamenei added.

In relevant remarks earlier this year, a prominent American analyst had said that the wave of Erhal revolutions in the Middle-East and North Africa is now growing to the European continent, stressing that the popular uprisings in the Arab states serve as a role model for the European people who have just started protests against their corrupt leaders.

"Due to the financial corruption dominating most of the European governments and the pervasive bottlenecks and crises that have arisen in the western countries these days, it is predicted that the growing trend of such discontents will soon turn into a series of revolutions known as the Erhal Revolutions" in the Middle-East and North Africa, Dr. James Anderson said late March.

He said the European countries have not witnessed a major development and political leap after the Renaissance, the World War II, the Cold War and formation of the European Union (EU), but now the time is ripe for the European people to get ready for political revolutions and change in their ruling structures.

Dr. Anderson also described the current protests and rallies in London as a prelude to Erhal revolutions in Europe, and said many European countries will soon be Erhalized and the world will soon witness that Erhalization has no boundaries.
