Supreme Leader: Iranian nation thwarts any destructive plot

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Oct 16, IRNA -- Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Sunday warned enemies of the Iranian nation that any destructive movement or plot will face a crushing response from the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Addressing large groups of academics in western Kermanshah Province, Ayatollah Khamenei said the Islamic Republic of Iran is closely watching the behind-the-curtain goals of the US scenario.

The Paramount Leader said one of the likely intentions of the US in making such a hue and cry is to overshadow the Wall Street movement.

“People in at least 80 countries have supported such a widespread movement, which is a highly bitter and hard experience for the US statesmen,” noted the Supreme Leader.

Touching on suppression of the popular protests, Ayatollah Khamenei said the American police or army might try to suppress the movement but to no avail.

Ayatollah Khamenei then referred to influence of Zionism on the American and European officials and warned western states, “The day will come for your nations to find out the root cause of your misery and problems, i.e. your humiliation before Zionists and that day the flames of their wrath will definitely burn capitalist system into ashes.”

“You have turned your back to your public and are hated by their majority; however, situation is vice-versa in the Islamic Republic of Iran and huge congregation of people indicates the firm determination of the nation to confront any plot,' the Supreme Leader said.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the Iranian people are present on the scene and they will withstand any satanic plot. “If the US officials have some plans, they should know that any improper moves, either political or security, will be thwarted strongly by the Iranian nation,” declared the Supreme Leader.

Elsewhere in his address, Ayatollah Khamenei touched on the Islamic awakening movement in the region, including Egypt and Tunisia, saying that under such sensitive conditions, the emergence of new systems in the region and the Islamic Republic establishment in Iran would influence both present and future of the region.

The Supreme Leader then scoffed at western slogans of justice and freedom saying that as they have shown in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and other countries, westerners, by chanting such mottos as democracy, campaign against nuclear arms and terrorism, follow their sinister goal including control over key economic and strategic parts of the world and nations’ wealth and resources as well as support for Zionism. “Based on realities on the ground, we declare that the so-called western democracy is false and empty in nature.”
