IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, Jan 30, IRNA -- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said on Monday that the current waves of Islamic Awakening in Muslim countries are gaining momentum regardless of Shia and Sunni affiliations.
The Supreme Leader made the remark in a meeting with young Muslims from 73 countries including Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Lebanon, Yemen, Bahrain and Palestine. The meeting echoed the Islamic and revolutionary sentiments between the Leader and the young Muslims from all over the world.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that followers of all Islamic sects are exercising solidarity in their campaign against puppet regimes backed by the United States.
The Leader said that the Islamic Awakening is the introduction of ultimate campaign against the World Arrogance, the main sponsor of oppression in the international community, adding that the world's state of affairs are on the brink of major overhaul.
The Supreme Leader made it clear that each and every nation has its own national values and despite the common ground among the Muslim nations, there is no identical pattern for them to follow in light of their own geographic or other preferences.
'The strategy of Muslim nations is that they cannot recognize the cancerous tumor of Israel and can no longer accept dominance of the Zionists and the US over the international community,' the Supreme Leader said.
The Supreme Leader said that the Islamic Awakening against dictatorial regimes is a good omen and God willing will ultimately ruin the corrupt network of global dictatorship and once again Muslims will embrace Islamic renaissance in glory and prosperity.
Elsewhere in his address, the Supreme Leader said that humanity has passed the era of Marxism, liberal democracy and secular nationalism and has currently given attention to divine religions and reliance upon Almighty God to attain salvation.
The Supreme Leader cautioned against the complicated networks of global dictatorship and their satanic links to the Zionism and said that the current waves of Islamic Awakening will help the international community get rid of greed of the global arrogance and achieve independence.
The Supreme Leader recalled the belief of some people in the past that victory over the network of global dictatorship and Zionism was impossible, or victory of Hezbollah faithful youth over the Zionist regime was impossible, or the fall of the Egyptian dictator was not easy or how it was possible to see the current events in North Africa and said that it is the might of God which has prevailed and created such glories.
'Thanks to the vigilant presence of nations and their resistance to tyranny, the promise of God to help man's struggle for salvation has been materialized. The Zionists and the great Satan and the western powers have currently got sense of desperation in the face of the Islamic Awakening and they are being overwhelmed by the sense of weakness day by day.'
The Supreme Leader said that the Muslims must consider the current victories as the beginning of the way to salvation and continue with their campaign with reliance upon Almighty God's promise to help them attain ultimate victory.
Ayatollah Khamenei called on the Muslim youth worldwide to follow the model of the Iranian youth who have paved the way for economic development of their country its progress in science and technology.
