Iranians under Imam Khomeini’s leadership emerged unscathed out of imposed war

The Islamic Republic emerged unscathed and triumphant despite numerous attacks during the eight-year Iraqi-imposed war.

Supported by regional and international powers, the Saddam regime invaded Iran via land and air in September 1980. 

The war that followed lasted for eight years and claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.

Imam’s divine conduct will be remembered for the future generations and decades to come.

Imam issued several statements in favor of Iraqi, Iranians and other regional Muslim and oppressed nations and strongly denounced the dictators such as Saddam and his colonial backers.

Imam Khomeini who considered the protection and maintenance of Iran and Islamic Republic of Iran as the most necessary and important matter than victory in the war, announced his agreement with the acceptance of the resolution 598 and said in a message addressing Iranians. The part of historic message read as following:

"what should be said about the acceptance of the resolution which was caustic and deplorable for all people and especially for me is that I already believed in this method of the defense and the announced positions in war and considered the expediency of the Revolution, system and the country in the accomplishment of it until some days before, however, based on the incidents and elements that I refuse to mention them now and God willing , they will become determined in the future , and according to the opinion of all high status political and military experts of the country that I trust in their obligation, sympathy and honesty, I agreed to accept the resolution and cease-fire and consider it as the expediency of the Revolution and system  and God knows that  if there was not such motivation that our respect and confidence should be sacrificed in the way of the expediency of the system and Muslims , I would never have consented to do this action and the death and martyrdom were more delectable for me, but, what is the alternative?

We should obey God's satisfaction.

The previous day was the day of divine examination which was spent and tomorrow is another examination which will happen ... I say again that the acceptance of this matter is more deadly than poison for me, but I am contented to make God happy with me and for God's sake, I drank this nip. The point which should be notified necessarily is that the acceptance of this resolution was only with the decision of Iran's custodians who decided about this matter with their confidence. Today's decision was only for the recognition of the expediency ... Know that the victory is yours. "
