World people feel thirst for Imam Khomeini thought: Leader

Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Revolution says the people in various parts of the globe feel more thirst for genuine teachings and dynamic thought for the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The supreme leader made remarks while delivering his speech on the occasion of 25th anniversary ceremony of heavenly departure of Imam Khomeini in the Iranian capital Tehran.

The leader noted that Imam's personality and thought were becoming increasingly popular among the oppressed people and the Muslim world by the passage of time.

The leader also said the world arrogant powers have been unable to curb the nation's divine ambitions by imposing sanctions and war.

Ayatollah Khamenei also said the Islamic Republic of Iran has never succumbed to the West, and managed to make progress day by day.

“Our external challenge is the troublemaking by the [global] arrogance. Let’s speak frankly; the troubles [caused] by the United States,” the leader said in an address at Imam Khomeini's Mausoleum in the south of the Iranian capital of Tehran, on Wednesday, marking the late Imam's anniversary.

Even some American analysts may be of the conviction that such trouble-making would be to no avail and fail to counter the Islamic Republic, said the Leader, adding, “But the US is still making troubles, and their agenda should be identified.”

Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized that European countries are making a “big strategic mistake” as they respect US interests while Washington refrains from respecting theirs.

Military action is not currently a priority for the US after it suffered losses during its invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, the Leader stated.

Ayatollah Khamenei also stressed the importance of identifying the country’s true enemies.

“Today, Takfiri groups are working against Islam and Shi'ism in certain regions and carrying out evil acts, but they are not the main enemies. The main enemy is the one who provokes them and provides them with money,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The Leader described Takfiris as “unwise groups” which have been deceived.

Ayatollah Khamenei warned that everyone who attacks Iran will face the country’s “clenched fist.”

The leader further stated that the wave of Islamic Awakening in the region may have been suppressed in some parts of the Muslim world “but it will undoubtedly prevail.”
