Addressing thousands of worshipers gathered at the Tehran University campus for the weekly congregational prayers, Ayatollah Jannati said the noble and justice-seeking judges in the judiciary might commit unintentional mistakes which dissatisfy people.
"these weaknesses will discourage people towards judiciary and government," he said.
He admitted that in certain cases the judiciary happened to deal with small offenses while some bigger ones have been ignored, and said thus the need for such purification in judiciary sounds vital.
The move will help people trust the justice-seeking aspirations in the judiciary, he said, predicting that the valuable performance of the judiciary will bear fruit in the future.
On recent unrests in the country, he said such move was predictable since the Americans have always supported fall of the Islamic system.
He appreciated the judiciary, security and police force as well as officials of the higher education who collectively prevented spread of unrests in the country.
He called on the Judiciary to adopt tough measures against trouble-makers who were behind the recent unrests in the country. The offenders should know the price they have to pay for their crimes and offenses, he warned.
The US is now fomenting unrest in Iran, he said, adding that they should understand that the Islamic Iran will not be toppled by such unrests.
"Goerge W. Bush and Tony Blair should understand that the Iranians will sacrifice themselves for their religion and in case their supreme leader gives such verdict, they will welcome it wholeheartedly", he underlined.
The US is now seeking to stir up unrest in our country and dealing with such move should be considered as a campaign against US and UK, he said.
He called on the US administration to stop threats and avoid resorting to the issue of weapons of mass destruction.
"We are to benefit from technological know how to serve our people", he said, adding that "history testifies that we have never welcomed war and aggression."
On Palestine, he said that the issue is now worsening day by day and the Israel imposes more pressure on Palestinians, but the Israelis who enjoy support of the Americans have failed to attain their goals and even caused the Palestinians to become more vigilant and united, Jannati said.
The more the US exerts pressure over Palestine and Iran , the more consolidated will become these peoples, he underlined.
Those who enjoy US support will arouse ire of people in the country, he concluded.
