(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Imam Khamenei the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution met yesterday morning with a group of government officials and ambassadors of Islamic countries on the occasion of Mab'ath. Speaking at the meeting, His Eminence said that the enemies of the Islamic Republic should learn a lesson from their past failures against the Iranian nation. "Our enemies do not want to learn from their past experiences. They should know that obstinacy, arrogance, self-importance and unreasonable expectations will not get them anywhere against the Iranian nation."
His Eminence referred to the crimes committed by the bullying powers in the regional countries and added that the domineering powers do not have any respect for humanity.
Referring to the economic problems of Europe and the world, he said: "Today solving the problems of the people is not an issue for Europe. They are only trying to solve the problems of capitalists and owners of banks."
Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated: "The cause of all these problems is the system of hegemony, the existence of two poles: those who dominate and those who are dominated. If the domineering powers did not exist, the system of hegemony would be annihilated. Similarly, if those who are dominated refused to give in to domination, the system of hegemony would fall apart."
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that the bullying powers of the world are making constant efforts to control and derail the regional revolutions. He added: "Nations should make use of the divine blessing of wisdom and thinking. They should trust themselves and their power. They should trust God."
He stated that if nations stand up against the arrogant powers and resist, they will definitely achieve victory. He referred to the Iranian nation as an example of a nation that has stood up against the global powers.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that the arrogant powers have formed a unified front against the Islamic Republic in order to prevent it from becoming a role model for resistance and progress.
Stressing the necessity of unity in the world of Islam, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that the enemies of Islam are trying to turn Shia and Sunni against each other. He criticized those who foment discord in the Muslim world and stressed: "Acting in line with the wishes of the intelligence services of America and Israel, those who believe neither in Shia Islam, nor in Sunni Islam, nor in the essence of Islam express concerns about the spread of Shia Islam."
