Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the Iranian nation’s resistance against the US pressures has surprised the world as it is impossible for other countries to show such tolerance.
“Other nations would not bear even one-fifth or one-fourth of the pressure being imposed by the wild American monster,” the Leader said in a Saturday gathering in Tehran.
However, he added, the Iranian nation is standing firmly. “Everyone is amazed to see such a resilient nation.”
“Nobody would believe that Iran would reach its current status in regards to its political status and regional influence and progress in scientific and technological fields in the early days of the Islamic Revolution,” the Leader said.
“However, the Iranian nation put its trust in God. did not fear any power and was able to achieve such progress,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
“Praise be to God, a heroic spirit is alive in our country. People are enthusiastically and devotedly present on the scene. To increase this heroic spirit, it is necessary to cultivate this culture.”
He further noted that “today, the important need of our country is for our youth to be equipped with various weapons and means of soft war, which consist of willpower and the power of reason.”
“I have repeatedly said about the need to strengthen the country,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
“One of the central components of this is to equip the youth with the means of thought and correct insight in the knowledge of the Ahl al-Bayt,” he added, referring to the progeny of the Prophet (PBUH).
“Thankfully, there are all types of good people in the Islamic Republic: military commanders, motivated young scientists, diligent builders of culture, artists and people who are present. The ultimate victory over the massive front of the enemies certainly belongs to the Iranian nation.”
