Leader: Orators of arrogant front scared of uttering “Islamic Awakening”

Monday, 29 April 2013 09:09

Leader of the Islamic Revolution said: “Islamic Awakening will prepare the ground for the emergence of Islamic civilization for both the Islamic Ummah and mankind in a not so far future.”

According to IRIB World Service, speaking at the world conference of Ulema and Islamic Awakeningon Monday,Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei deemed the issue of Islamic Awakening as the top priority of the Islamic Ummah adding: “What is before our eyes today that can’t be stopped by anybody is that Islam has found an prominent status at the center of the determining events of the world.”

The leader noted: “Islamic Awakening, which the speakers of the Arrogant Front are scared of even pronouncing it, is a reality that can be seen all over the world.”

In his important speech, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei pointed to some pivotal issues such as: “preserving the status of religious bases as the places of reference”, “designing of long-term goals”, “abstaining from bitter experience of pinning hope at the promises of the west”, “vigilance against creation of sectarian, religious and ethnic conflicts”, “not forgetting the Palestinian issue as the basic index and touchstone of uprisings.”

The leader stressed: “The most obvious sign of the Islamic Awakening is the enthusiasm of the public opinion especially the youth to revive the grandeur and splendor of Islam and disclose the abominable, cruel and arrogant image of the domineering governments.”

Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei emphasized that the victory of the Islamic revolution and materialization of its bright realities have occurred in the light of the Divine promise, patience, resistance and seeking help from God. He said: “Today this precious experience is available for nations which have stood upright against [World] Arrogance and Despotism and have succeeded to topple or shake corrupt governments who were obedient and affiliated to the US.”

Reminding the heavy duty of the Ulema, the leader said continued: “The Ulema and religious men should be very much careful and attentive.”

Referring to the efforts of the mercenaries and elements affiliated to the US and Zionism for fabricating uncertain ideological sources and corrupting the religious and pious people, the leader reiterated: “Attending the luxurious banquets of the world and being polluted by the gifts of the owners of gold and power, are the most dangerous factor for separation from people and losing their trust and closeness.”

Pointing to the conditions of Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, Pakistan, Iraq and Lebanon, Ayatollah Khamenei stated: “The propaganda of the west and their mercenary regional media introduce the destructive war of Syria as a Shia-Sunni strife and create a safe margin for the Zionists and the enemies of the resistance in Syria and Lebanon; while the two sides of the conflict in Syria are neither Sunni nor Shia but the supporters of the anti-Zionist Resistance and its enemies.”

Reminding the events of Bahrain, the leader added: “In Bahrain, an oppressed majority, which has been denied the right of vote and basic rights of a nation for long years, has risen up to demand its right; but since this oppressed majority is Shia and the bullying secular government pretends to be Sunni, European and American propaganda apparatuses and their regional cohorts illustrate it as the Shia-Sunni conflict.”

The leader stressed: “These are the issues that call on the Ulema and fair reformists’ reflection, carefulness and sense of responsibility; and makes it obligatory to recognize the enemies’ goals to aggrandize sectarian, ethnic and partisan differences.”

The leader also said: “Anyone who doesn’t agree with the motto of freedom of holy Al-Quds or wants to marginalize it and turn his back to the front of resistance, is an accused.”

Supreme Leader Meets with Laborers and Producers

(2013/04/27)

Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution met Saturday morning with thousands of laborers and people who are active in production sectors. Speaking at the meeting, which was held on the occasion of Labor Week, His Eminence referred to the need of the country for achieving valor and making a quantum leap in economic and political arenas.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution described elections as important and the manifestation of national power. He stressed that candidates should carry out a proper evaluation of their capabilities and of executive duties, further reiterating: "The great country and people of Iran need a president who is courageous in international arenas and who has plans, who is wise, who believes in an economy of resistance, who is pious, who avoids causing turmoil and who chants slogans based on reality when he addresses domestic issues."

Ayatollah Khamenei stated that the main characteristic of laborers is that they devote their bodies to the progress and tranquility of the country, adding: "Laborers are the spinal cords of a society. If they do not exist, the country will be paralyzed."

His Eminence stressed the necessity of paying attention to the issue of labor and laborers in cultural, legislative and executive arenas: "If laborers have hopes, welfare and job security, the movement of the country towards progress will be faster and easier."

He referred to the special role of laborers during and after the victory of the Islamic Revolution such as during the Sacred Defense Era, further adding: "During the past 34 years, many efforts were made to pit laborers against the Revolution and the Islamic Republic. But the religious and revolutionary laborers of the country courageously stood up against this plot and this is a source of honor for laborers."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to naming last year as "The Year of National Production and Supporting Iranian Labor and Capital", reiterating: "Supporting national production is not peculiar to one year. Rather this issue should be pursued in a serious and fundamental way."

Ayatollah Khamenei described developing a culture of using domestically produced products among the people as very important, further adding: "The idea that the use of a product with a domestic or foreign brand can make an Iranian laborer prosperous or poor should be promoted among all the people."

Addressing the people of Iran, His Eminence said: "I request that all the people of Iran move towards using domestically produced products."

He stressed that executive organizations should not at all use foreign products for fulfilling their own needs, further stating: " Of course, domestic producers - including managers of agencies, laborers and investors - should provide the people with good and high-quality products."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to Islam's advice on developing labor as well as respecting the laborer, providing him with job security and ensuring the safety of capital, stressing: "Unlike liberal and socialist outlooks on economy, Islam has taken the middle course and it has adopted a humanitarian and justice-based outlook on labor, laborer and investor."

Ayatollah Khamenei stressed that today, the inefficiency of capitalism has been revealed in practice, further reiterating: "Reactions triggered in Europe and - of a different kind - in America is the strongest practical reason why the path of capitalism is wrong."

His Eminence said: "The current events in Europe and America are just the beginning. The situation will be much wors e because capitalism is on the verge of destruction."

He added: "One reason for the decline of western civilization is the current economic problems in the west. Another reason is moral and cultural problems."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to naming this year as "The Year of Political and Economic Valor", reiterating: "Valor means a jihad-like and enthusiastic movement. The people and officials should pay attention to this issue. Based on this, identifying the weak points and shortcomings and developing proper plans for achieving this valor are necessary."

Ayatollah Khamenei added: "In all plans, the lives of underprivileged classes should receive careful attention."

His Eminence said that making a quantum leap and achieving valor are prerequisites for the progress of the country, stressing: "Political and economic deeds of valor are closely intertwined an d each of them preserves and strengthens the other."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution pointed to the efforts and plots of the ill-wishers of the Iranian nation to create obstacles in the way of political and economic valor, further adding: "They try to pit the people against the Islamic Republic and frustrate the people by exerting pressures. This is while they say with complete shamelessness that they are not the enemies of the people of Iran."

Ayatollah Khamenei stated: "If executive and legislative organizations pay careful attention to making a great economic leap, then the effect of all economic pressures will be countered."

"The people of Iran and Iranian officials will frustrate the enemy in economic arenas with their firm determination."

His Eminence described political valor as the vigilant presence of the people in political and managerial areas, adding: "A clear example of political valor is the upcoming elections which, by Allah's favor, will be held in due time and with the enthusiastic presence of the people."

He said that the plot of the ill-wishers of the Iranian nation is to reduce the people's incentive to participate in elections, further reiterating: "Even after the passage of many years of hostility, the arrogant plotters - who are acting behind the scenes - have still not understood and known the people of Iran and their spirit of faith and resistance."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution added: "If officials put up a resistance on a certain issue in the past, this was because of the support of the people. The first well done is for the people. The greatest praise should be given to the people. It was they who encouraged and supported the officials so that they could stand up against the bullying, pressures and greed of the enemies and arrogant powers. Today, it is the same and, by Allah's favor, it will be the same in the future."

Ayatollah Khamenei described elections as important and the manifestation of national power, further stating: "A nation which is lively and dynamic, which relies on the will of God and which is confident about divine assistance will be victorious in all arenas including the arena of elections."

His Eminence said that all the people with different opinions who believe in the Islamic Republic can participate in elections, further adding: "But those who run for elections should not make a mistake in their calculations. They should know what executive management means in our country. They should neither make a mistake in the evaluation of the need of the country for a powerful executive official nor in the evaluation of their own capabilities. If they carry out a proper evaluation, they can enter the arena. And the people will look at them and they will choose. "

He described the structure of elections in the country as solid and firm. He reiterated: "The inclusion of the Guardian Council in the Constitution - which was constantly stressed by Imam (r.a.) - is really an auspicious inclusion. The decision of the Guardian Council on the issue of vetting is one which is made by a number of just, impartial and wise people. This is an auspicious thing for us and for all the people of Iran."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution stated: "After the Guardian Council makes its decision, the people will take a look at the individuals who have been considered as righteous. They will inquire about these individuals, ask reliable people about them and look at their background, slogans and statements. Then they will make a decision."

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the characteristics that the elected president should have: "First, the president should be an individua l who has faith in God and believes in the people and the Constitution. Second, he should have the spirit of resistance."

His Eminence stressed: "Our nation has lofty goals. It has great things to do. It does not surrender. No one can speak to such a nation in a bullying tone. Those who occupy the highest positions in the executive branch should be the people who put up a resistance against the pressures of the enemies. They should not be intimidated easily. They should not quickly leave the arena. This is one of the necessary conditions."

He stated that having wisdom, acumen and definite plans are the other characteristics that a president should have, adding: "As we need dignity, wisdom and acumen in the arena of foreign policy, we need a comprehensive and long-term outlook and a proper calculation on domestic and economic issues."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution described adopting a routine o utlook on economic issues, constantly changing economic policies, relying on inexpert opinions and trusting the imposed economic theories of the west and the east as harmful, further stressing: "Economic policies should be based on economy of resistance."

Ayatollah Khamenei added: "Economy of resistance is a kind of economy which enjoys a firm and solid infrastructure and which does not waver in the face of different changes in the world."

His Eminence said that the president should have moral purification and he should not involve himself in any kind of political turmoil: "I have always supported presidents and administrations during past years. However, I have simultaneously given them a number of recommendations and asked them to answer certain questions."

He stated: "I have always stressed that they should not impose unnecessary expenses on the people, they should not create problems for the people and th ey should not make them distressed and nervous."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution reiterated: "Those who enter the arena of elections should not make false and hollow promises. They should not make irrational claims. They should move forward by relying on Allah the Exalted and by adopting a rational, sensible and realistic outlook."

Ayatollah Khamenei stressed: "The president who is going to be the head of the executive branch in our country and who wants to tread this glorious path with the help of the people should have these characteristics."

His Eminence reiterated: "What we learned from the long experiences that we have gained since the victory of the Revolution is that, with His kindness and guidance, Allah the Exalted will help our nation achieve a victory over all its enemies."

He stated: "Anyone who confronts this deeply religious nation will be definitely destroyed."

 (2013/04/17)

Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution met Wednesday afternoon with a number of commanders and personnel of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army, their families and members of Basij. Speaking at the meeting, which was held on the occasion of the 29th of Farvardin -Day of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army - His Eminence described the Islamic Republic of Iran Army as a source of honor and a popular, scientific and faith-based army which has given rise to many successfully-tested innovations.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to the irrationality of the camp of global arrogance, headed by America, saying: "Today, western civilization is on the verge of collapse and destruction because of its contradictions, irrationality, oppression and indifference to human values."

The Commander-in-Chief of the Iranian Armed Forces stated that one of th e unique characteristics of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army is that it is a popular army, adding: "In the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Army is respected by the people because of its self-sacrifice and efforts, not because of its power."

Referring to the scientific orientation of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army, His Eminence said: "The achievements and the range of scientific activities of the Iranian Armed Forces, including the Islamic Republic of Iran Army, are amazing and incomparable to the achievements and activities before the victory of the Islamic Revolution or even during the early years after the Revolution."

Ayatollah Khamenei added: "All these achievements have been made during the time when the ill-wishers of the Iranian nation refused to give us the most basic equipment. But the talents of the youth and children of this nation brought about astonishing achievements."

He pointed to the religious nature of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army and stated: "Because the Islamic Republic of Iran Army works on the basis of a sense of responsibility and because it has deepened its religious and revolutionary spirit, it has turned into an army which is committed to values and beliefs."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution stressed: "Such an army will definitely emerge victorious out of all tests."

The Commander-in-Chief of the Iranian Armed Forces said that being experienced - because of a glorious presence in the eight-year Sacred Defense Era - is another privilege of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army, further adding: "The Islamic Republic of Iran Army played an outstanding role in different operations during the Sacred Defense Era and it did great things."

Addressing the personnel of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army, Ayatollah Khamenei said, "You should be proud of being members of t he Islamic Republic of Iran Army and you should preserve your determination and strengthen your outstanding qualities."

His Eminence referred to the different attitudes of the Iranian Armed Forces and other armies in the world saying: "The Islamic Republic of Iran Army, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps and the Basij, have presented a different culture and orientation to the world. Such a culture and orientation is a new model and it stands against the colonialist and imperialist orientation of many armies in the world."

His Eminence pointed to the domineering spirit of the armies that belong to the camp of arrogance, particularly the American army, reiterating: "Wherever these armies show up, they give rise to moral corruption and killings and they put pressure on the people."

He said that the American claim to combat weapons of mass destruction is false, further adding: "Contrary to this claim, Ame rican drones massacre the innocent children, women and people of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Also, the terrorists who are overtly and covertly supported by America kill the people in Iraq and Syria."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to the contradictions in the statements of American politicians, adding: "America and other countries that claim to defend human rights are silent about the massacre of innocent people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. But after a few explosions in America, they create uproar throughout the world."

Ayatollah Khamenei stressed: "As a follower Islam, the Islamic Republic of Iran is opposed to any kind of bombing and massacre of innocent people - no matter whether it is in Boston or Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria - and it condemns such moves."

His Eminence added: "On the issue of the massacre of innocent people, there are contradictions in the behav ior of America and other countries which claim to defend human rights. Based on this, we believe that America and the camp that is opposed to the Islamic Republic of Iran, are irrational."

He said: "What kind of logic is this? If children and women are murdered in Afghanistan and Pakistan by the Americans and if terrorists who are supported by America in Iraq and Syria create so many disasters, it is alright. But if an explosion takes place in America or a western country, the entire world should pay the price for it."

"This way of thinking and this spirit of America and the west - which consider themselves as more important than others - will result in its gradual decline and fall."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to the rational ideas of the Islamic Republic of Iran, reiterating: "These rational ideas are the foundations of a deep-rooted and everlasting civilization."

Elsewhere in his statements, Ayatollah Khamenei expressed his gratitude to the wives, families and children of the personnel of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army for their sacrifices, cooperation and support. He added: "The honorable families of the personnel of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army should always be proud of such men."
