Caspian International News Agency– Today morning, at the beginning of Kharej Fiqh course, Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme leader of Iran, stated, “today, the arrogant powers’ efforts to strip us of material and spiritual power contrasts the determination of the Iranian nation, and we have to keep this power and improve it day by day”.
Ayatollah Khamenei, referring to a narration by the Holy Prophet, stated that a society will achieve prosperity by possessing power, and added, “Arrogant powers, like the United States, are after social prosperity and what they call ‘American values’ by acquiring wealth and dominating the world. Islam, however, considers the prosperity of mankind as an achievement of human virtues, and the application of Quranic thought and deeds in all parts of society.”
The leader of Islamic revolution stated that a system based on Islam which has power and influence in different areas causes hostility and hatred of global powers, and added, “dominating powers oppose any anti-cruelty thinking in the world, but it arises against a tide only when that tide has been able to move the ocean of people”.
He believes that the conspiracies and different hostilities with the Islamic Republic is because Iran, which has major natural, human, and economic resources, logic and political talk, and great military force, opposes the dominating system. He noted, “In reaction to these hostilities, the Islamic Republic of Iran, must add to its power, and that’s why we stress on increasing national power and building strength”.
Ayatollah Khamenei, referring to the necessity of equipping with various powers, including “mind, economic, social and people’s power”, and added, ” When after nearly 40 years, people come to streets for the Islamic revolution, it is a sign of the power of Islamic revolution in gathering people together, and this is unique in the world”.
The supreme leader of Iran considered the event of December 29 as another sign of this system’s power and added, ” there was no one involved in that event, and the only thing forcing people into the street was the intellectual power at the heart of Islamic system”.
He pointed to the tricks and conspiracies of the enemies for depriving Iran of it’s military power, and said, “the enemy is like a thief who plans to invade a house, but it pretends that this is because of a weapon that the house owner has in his hand for protection, and if he puts the weapon down, the fight is over. Thus, he tries to disarm the owner by talking, smiling, kidding, and threatening to enter the house”.
Ayatollah Khamenei stated that prosperity or adversity depends on how to use the power and said, “prohibiting nuclear weapons has very important jurisprudential and logical foundations, but the government and nation can try to gain other sources of power”.
