Tehran, July 30, IRNA - Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said in Tehran Wednesday that Iranian nation is determined to follow up their clear path.
"Resistance under all conditions is the big lesson of the Great Prophet of Islam Hazrat Mohammad relying on the decisive lesson (of the prophet) and by having strong presence in all fields and scenes of campaign, engagement and dialogue, the Great Iranian nation will continue their clear path," said Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution in an address to a group of officials, people from different walks of life and Muslim ambassadors on the occasion of the auspicious feast of Mab'ath, marking divine assignment of Prophet Mohammad.
Ayatollah Khamenei said having a right stance is the key but not sufficient condition for progress.
"Based on a divine tradition, right will be victorious when its followers keep resistance under all conditions," he said.
The Supreme Leader said contrary to the world bullying powers' wishes, the Great Iranian nation will continue supporting the oppressed Palestinian nation.
He said that Iranian nation strongly condemns dirty and impudent silence of the so-called advocates of freedom and human rights in the face of Zionists' daily crimes and injustice.
The Supreme Leader also said the US President George W. Bush's support for the murderer and terrorist Zionists is in brazen contradiction with his claim of support for freedom.
"Iranian nation is awake and fully understands the facts," announced the Iranian Supreme Leader.
Recalling bullying and ambitious nature of the world arrogance, Ayatollah Khamenei said, "Backing down one step in the face of the arrogance will encourage it to come one step forward. The idea, that retreatment and giving up right stances and words will make the arrogance change its policy, is totally wrong and baseless."
Terming nuclear bomb producers and the ones threatening mankind's security and calm as "Abujahl" (ignorant persons) in today's world, Ayatollah Khamenei said, "The present time Abujahls (ignorant persons), who only look at their arms and roar like foolish hooligans, do know that Iranian nation pursues nuclear energy for electricity generation.
They (the west) however claim that since such a work gives you (Iranians) power, we (westerners) will not allow (you to pursue it).
Iranian nation will of course defy such claims and continue their path, relying on their helpful experience and on the reliable benefits of its 30-year resistance."
The Paramount leader said Iranian nation's present capability, and regional influence and strength cannot be compared with the past.
"A bright horizon is ahead of dear Iran; we do know what we do and where we will get. We think that reaching to the point needs movement and perseverance and not standing idle or moving backward."
Ayatollah Khamenei concluded that today, Muslims should be wise enough and upgrade their knowledge standards and try to fully materialize the prophethood message.
