IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, Jan 26, IRNA -- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday that the US government and the Zionist regime have been the worst enemies of the Iranian nation in the past 30 years.
In a meeting with several thousand people, religious figures and officials from Amol, Mazandaran province, the Supreme leader said that the enemy has entered into the battlefield, a reference to the US earmarking budget to boost cyberspace facilities for propaganda campaign against Iran.
“We all should take care of the current situation and correct our deeds if we have made a mistake,” the Supreme Leader said.
“To pin hope in the enemy is a great mistake.”
The Supreme Leader recalled the counter-revolutionary operation in Amol on January 26, 1982 and said that the Iranian nation have experiences about a variety of conspiracies to strike a blow to Iran in the past 30 years which have been neutralized thanks to the vigilance of the people and their presence on the scene.
“Today, every individual, especially the youth and influential people are expected to be present on the scene to defend the Islamic Revolution, the Islamic Republic and place trust in the officials,” the Supreme Leader said.
The Supreme Leader said that the major responsibility with the officials is to work hard and take measures to solve the problems and speed up the progress of the country.
The Supreme Leader said that the counter-revolutionaries declared in 1360 (1982) that they had dug 1,000 hideouts in Amol to confront the Islamic Republic, but, the stronghold of the Islamic Revolution has its place in the hearts of the people.
“Glory of the people’s standup to the counter-revolutionaries in Amol on January 26, 1982 was immense to the extent that the late Imam Khomeini brought it in his will in order to make it unforgettable for the generations to come.”
The Supreme Leader said that it is surprising that the enemies have not taken lessons from failure of a variety of conspiracies in the past and are pressing ahead with new plans.
“The US says it has earmarked dlrs 45 million to initiate propaganda campaign against the Islamic Republic of Iran through the Internet. It indicates their extreme desperation, because they have spent tens of dlrs 45 million so far to strike a blow to Iran through diplomatic campaign, sanctions, espionage, hiring mercenaries and other methods, but, they have never been successful.”
The Supreme Leader said that the inability of the enemy to understand the reality of the Islamic Revolution and its popular strength is a blessing from the Almighty God.
“The enemies of the Iranian nation have long ago planned to stage riots in Tehran, but, the plan backfired and brought vigilance to the public.”
The Supreme Leader said that the riots encouraged the people to come to the scene and defend the Islamic Republic more than ever.
The Supreme Leader said that the enemies pursued to blackmail the nation by staging riots in Tehran.
“The late Imam Khomeini never gave any concession and we, on behalf of the Iranian nation, will never give any concession,” the Supreme Leader said.
