Ayatollah Khamenei: Enemy Means Global Arrogance and its Complete Manifestation [which is] AmericaSalem-News.com Foreign Affairs
“The main goal of the enemies is that the Iranian nation should set aside its revolutionary ideas so as to lose its power and be devoured by the plots of several bullying countries claiming to be the global community.” ~ Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei
(TEHRAN) - Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the leader of the Islamic Revolution, in a meeting Wednesday with thousands of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commanders, described the IRGC as a divine blessing and the watchful and vigilant guardian of the Islamic Revolution in internal and external issues.
Elucidating the requirements and various aspects of safeguarding the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei said: “The enemy is thinking about infiltration, particularly politico-cultural infiltration, in the vain hope of putting an end to the [Islamic] Revolution, which uncovers the conspiracies of the enemy, upgrading and strengthening the revolutionary spirit, and persistently moves towards the realization of the ideals [of the revolution] will defeat [attempts made for the realization of] this objective".
Ayatollah Khamenei said knowing the enemy is another aspect of “guarding the revolution”, adding: “Enemy means global arrogance and its complete manifestation [which is] America, for which reactionary regimes and weak-hearted people are agents.”
"The necessity for guarding the revolution is to know the enemy’s cognitive and practical weaknesses and to convince those people who have no accurate knowledge of the enemy yet,” added Ayatollah Khamenei.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution went on to highlight weaknesses and contradictions in the fundamentals of the enemy, saying: “The enemies of the Islamic Revolution are those who came to the region years ago with [such] slogans like ‘establishment of security’, ‘fighting terrorism’, ‘establishment of democracy’ and ‘establishment of peace’, but now the result of their presence is [nothing but] insecurity, emergence of savage and violent terrorism, and ignition of war in the region.”
Ayatollah Khamenei said: “The slogan of ‘establishing democracy’ in the region, which is shouted by the Americans, has now grown into one of their major problems and their Achilles’ heel because today the most reactionary and the most dictatorial regimes in the region continue their crimes through America’s assistance and support.”
The Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei explains, is a permanent and durable reality and a “profound and never-ending transformation and evolution,” adding: “In spite of illusions and insinuations of foreign think tanks, which are repeated by some people inside the country, the revolution never ends and transforming it into the ‘Islamic Republic’ in the sense that they imagine will not be possible.”
Ayatollah Khamenei mentioned delineation of political ideals as the first step in every revolution, adding: “Unlike tools and methods, these principles and ideals are unchangeable.”
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution said separating ideology from diplomacy and domestic policy is another focal point of the West’s current propaganda campaign, adding: “They expect us not to let our principles interfere in foreign policy, but thought, belief and ideology constitute a determining guide in all fields.”
Ayatollah Khamenei went on to speak about the contradiction between two phrases that have been repeated in foreigners’ propaganda recently.
Ayatollah Khamenei said: “On the one hand, the enemies say the Islamic Republic has power and influence and weight in the region and, on the other, they say ‘Set your revolutionary spirit and thoughts aside to join the global community’.”
“These two phrases contradict each other because our power and influence stem from our revolutionary spirit and performance and naturally if we ditched them, we would be weakened,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution said: “The main goal of the enemies is that the Iranian nation should set aside its revolutionary ideas so as to lose its power and be devoured by the plots of several bullying countries claiming to be the global community.”
After reviewing different aspects of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei elucidated the features of the fourth word in the “Islamic Revolution Guards Corps”, i.e. ‘Islam’.
Ayatollah Khamenei said: “Islam is the basis and essence of the revolution, but some are afraid of the name of Islam and instead of saying Islamic Revolution, they say ‘the 57 Revolution’ (1357 is the Iranian year when the 1979 Islamic Revolution triumphed.”
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution said the “entire substance of the revolution” is pure Islam and while strongly criticizing populist, deviated and idiotic ideas of Takfiris.
“An Islam relying on wisdom and narrations, and documented upon the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet [Muhammad (PBUH)] and his Household is the basis of our revolution that could be presented and defended with strong logic in all up-to-date forums in the world,” he added.
Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the influence of the Islamic Revolution on the minds and hearts of Muslim nations, saying: “An Islam restricted to personal practice, secular Islam, [and an] Islam minus jihad and martyrdom and prohibition of vice is not acceptable to the Iranian nation and the ‘Islam of the revolution’ could be found in the Quranic verses and the [late] Imam [Khomeini]’s last will and testament as well as his speeches and writings.”
“Economic and security infiltration is of course dangerous and has grave consequences, but political and culture infiltration of the enemy is a far greater danger, which everyone should watch out for,” said Ayatollah Khamenei.
Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out the enemies’ heavy investment in cultural infiltration in order to gradually change people’s beliefs, saying: “Also in the field of politics, the foreigners are seeking to infiltrate into decision-taking centers and if they fail, they would seek infiltration into decision-making centers, which in case of success of these conspiracies, orientations, decisions and general movement of the country would be regulated and implemented based on the demand and will of foreigners.”
Concluding his remarks, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution underscored the necessity of public awareness against enemy tactics, saying: “They are waiting for the nation and the [Islamic] Establishment to fall asleep and ten years later when, for example, I may not be [present], they would realize their objectives. But the nation and officials will not let the evil hope of foreigners in nation falling asleep to take root in the heart of the enemy.”
