The US officials have acknowledged that the Iranian nation refuses to submit to the bullying tactics of arrogant powers due to its adherence to Islamic ideology, the Leader said in an address to a commencement ceremony for graduates of Imam Hussein (AS) Military Academy in Tehran on Monday.
Ayatollah Khamenei underlined that arrogant powers resorted to every tool in an attempt to “bring the Islamic establishment to its knees and force it into submission” but all in vain.
Imam Khamenei highlighted “steadfastness”, “defiance of the enemy” and “safeguarding the revolutionary and Islamic identity” as the main factors of the strength of the Islamic establishment and the Iranian nation.
“The Americans and other powers are extremely sad at this issue and they have no other option. That is why they made huge efforts in order to bring the country’s decision-making and decision-taking centers under their control, but they failed and thanks God they will fail to do so,” noted the Leader.
The Leader further said the US hostility against the Islamic Republic stems from Iran’s defiance of Washington’s arrogant policies.
“The main cause of all these enmities and fabrication of pretexts is (Iran’s) defiance of Arrogance (a reference to the hegemonic powers led by the US).”
“Were the Iranian nation ready to surrender, they (arrogant powers) would have comprised over (Iran’s) missile power and nuclear energy and they would have made no mention of human rights,” Imam Khamenei went on to say.
