Islamic Revolution Leader, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with commanders, officers, pilots and staff of the Air Force said divine motivation, sincerity and faith in the Islamic Revolution are keys to effectiveness and strength of the Islamic Revolution adding the Iranian nation will stun the arrogance front in Bahman 22 rallies. Â Concurrent with the anniversary of the 19th of Bahman, 1357 (February 8, 1979) in which Air Force personnel swore allegiance to Imam Khomeini, the IR Leader described the move as a big political barrier-breaking move and said the people were only motivated in their presence by sincerity and divine purpose and the issue recorded the move in the history. “The Islamic Revolution is a successful revolution for implementing divine rules and establishing justice,” Ayatollah Khamenei added. The Islamic Revolution Leader underlined that the enemy, the arrogant system and Zionists are not able to understand the reasons behind the Islamic Revolution’s spiritual strength, adding thousands of media and intellectuals always make propaganda against the Islamic system but they could not affect the system because it is based on a divine and faithful foundation. Ayatollah Khamenei said no system in the world could stand up like the Islamic system in spite of all the existing false propaganda as well as political and economic pressures and sanctions. The Islamic Revolution Leader stressed that the Islamic system will continue to resist all pressures, adding reliance on God and people’s faith are keys to stability of the Islamic Revolution. “People due to their faith will come to streets without any call, whenever they feel danger for the Revolution, like what happened in rallies on December 30. Pointing to the efforts made by ill-wishers of the Islamic Revolution to make the presence of millions of people in December 30 to appear less important, the Islamic Revolution Leader said the march was too great for the enemy to cover it up. Ayatollah Khamenei said the presence of people in time of threats was inspired by faith and Divine will, adding that God holds the heart of human in His Hand and since the Islamic System is a Divine move, God will secure it. Ayatollah Khamenei said the enemies have failed to grasp the true nature of people’s support of the government and insist on threats. He continued that they think they can make use of issues of democracy and human rights to allege that Iran has weak points while the world laughs at such claims. Ayatollah Khamenei added that those who trampled on the rights of prisoners or even their citizens are now speaking of human rights and it is shameful. “These so called advocates of democracy make friends with the most autocratic and totalitarian regimes in the Middle East and the rest of the world and speak of democracy. The world witnesses such contradictory behavior and doesn’t believe their claims,” Ayatollah Khamenei added. Ayatollah Khamenei continued that the so-called advocates with such records accuse the Islamic Republic of Iran, which has the power to bring 85 percent of the eligible to polls, of not having democracy. Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out that the Islamic administration has stood firm in the face of all threats in the last 30 years. He continued that Iran has advanced in various technological and scientific fields. The Leader of Islamic Revolution stated that the nations’ unity is like a thorn in the enemies’ flesh. Ayatollah Khamenei continued that causing discord in the society is what the events after the June election was aimed for. He added that all attempts proved futile and those who stood against the nation’s will are not of the people but against the revolution, either because of their ignorance or stubbornness. The Leader of Revolution asserted that masses are treading in the path of Islam and the revolution so that Islamic laws are enforced in the country through which they can achieve independence and glory. Ayatollah Khamenei also added that some have been opposed to the revolution from day first and wanted to restore the US dominance in the country. The Leader of revolution continued that monarchists and those who supported the late regime of Iran have got a grudge against the revolution for thirty years. He added that some are against the very core of the government which is the sovereignty of Islam. “All these people are a small group compared with the nation that despite variety of political attitudes is united.” Ayatollah Khamenei said. Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the efforts of enemies in ruining the unity of nation, adding that by God’s assistance, the Iranian nation in February 11 march will stun all the arrogant powers, including America, Britain and Zionists through their united presence. The IR Leader said the Islamic Republic of Iran will firmly continue to seek dignity under Islam, security under Islam, justice under Islam and the Islamic-inspired democracy, adding that the present youths and the next generations would conquer the peaks of progress by use of the ample experiences of the nation gathered in the face of the world arrogance. The Commander-in-Chief said a smart nation like the Iranian nation, cherishing innovation and freedom of Islam and Revolution, will never stop moving forward. Ayatollah Khamenei then appreciated the Air Force for its recent achievements, adding however that the force must advance in a way that shows the perseverance of the Iranian nation.
