The Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei strongly criticized the US president rudeness for sword dancing with murderers of the Yemeni people and showing no respect for the Iranian nation who newly attended a free election.
In a ceremony held in Tehran marking the 28th anniversary of founder of the Islamic Republic the late Imam Khomeini, the Leader referred to the latest visit to Saudi Arabia of the US President Donald Trump, censuring accusations he leveled against Iran and the issue of human rights.
“It is blatant rudeness that the US president, in a backward, tribal and declining system, stays alongside the heads of the tribe to sword dance but on the other had, [US president] complains about 40 million of the Iranian nation’s votes cast in a newly-ended free election,” said Imam Khamenei.
The Leader said the Islamic Revolution gave identity and independence to Iranian society by toppling the previous tyrannical regime. His eminence said the secret of the success of Imam Khomeini’s movement was that he managed to bring the youth and all people into the arena and to keep them there.
Imam Khamenei noted that Imam Khomeini’s ideas, including freedom, social and economic justice, and the need to get rid of US domination were among major factors, which attracted the Iranian youth to the revolution.
The Leader stated that as a result of Imam’s ideas, young people even in those countries that are subservient to the United States, like Saudi Arabia, cherish the idea that their countries must be freed from US domination.
“Imam Khomeini had described the US as the Great Satan and an unreliable state over 30 years ago,” Imam Khamenei said, noting that the heads of European countries have confessed now that no one can trust Washington, which attests to truth of Imam Khomeini’s ideas.
“The late Imam is not a cultural heritage. He is alive, his path, his thoughts and his words are still alive among people. It is only his body that is dead. He is still our leader and our Imam,” the Leader said.
