Imam Khomeini remains the spirit of Islamic Revolution and exceptional personality: Leader

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei made the remarks on Saturday at a ceremony marking the 33rd anniversary of the passing of Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Revolution.

The leader said that Imam was essense and spirit of the Islamic Revolution and exceptional figure in its real sense. He also stressed the need for the young generation to become aware of Imam's thought and ideals.

The late Imam Khomeini- Founder of the Islamic Republic and Father of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran- passed away 33 years ago at the age of 86.

Imam Khomeini, who steered the popular uprising in Iran culminating in the fall of former regime of Shah, passed away on June 3, 1989.

He is known as one of the most influential leaders who inspired many other revolutions all across the world.

 Ayatollah Khamenei further said the enemies were seeking to pit the Iranian people against their government and the Islamic establishment but all to no avail.

The leader said Western countries mainly pin their hopes on the popular protests in order to overthrow the Islamic Republic.

“By launching psychological warfare, recruiting mercenaries, and staging media campaigns against Iran, they attempt to set people against the Islamic establishment,” he said.

However, the Leader added the enemy is making miscalculations as they did before by erroneously believing that it can stir up public dissent in the country.

He pointed out that they enemy gehas advisors He said “Iranian traitors” are consulting them.

Still, they give them advice without having “accurate information.” One of these misleading pieces of information is that they can “count on Iranians to counter the Islamic establishment,” the Leader stressed.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the Iranians’ interest in the Islamic Revolution and the Islamic Establishment is growing day by day, referencing the funeral procession held for Iranian military commander martyr Qassem Soleimani.

He also underlined that the West has plundered nations all the way from Asia to Africa and South America for the last three centuries.

Expose enemies’ lies, deceptions, and psychological warfare’

Ayatollah Khamenei also emphasized the enemy's lies, deceptions, and psychological warfare must be exposed.

He touched upon the recent illegal seizure of an Iranian oil tanker by Greece and the confiscation of its oil by the US, praising Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) for retaliating Athens' act of piracy.

Days after the Iranian oil tanker was captured by Greece in its territorial waters, the IRGC naval forces seized two Greek oil tankers in the Persian Gulf over violations.

The leader said that the enemy has “accused Iran of stealing” in their media campaigns, however, “taking back what is stolen from you is not called stealing, you are the [real] thieves.”
