Iranian Ralliers Renew Allegiance to Islamic Revolution’s Values
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Mass rallies in Tehran on the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution wrapped up on Tuesday with a statement in which Iranian people voiced support for the Islamic establishment and deplored the recent US threatening remarks against Iran.
The Iranian demonstrators in capital Tehran, who attended the mass rallies in their millions, announced in the final statement that they will continue to call for the country’s diplomatic channels to “adopt explicit stances” in dealing with the country’s enemies.
The stances should at the same time be based upon the Islamic Revolution’s values and on the “threat vis-à-vis threat” policy, the statement added.
The statement also denounced any move that could sow discord among the Iranian people and damage the national unity, and emphasized the necessity for solidarity and rapport among the whole Iranians with different religions.
The statement further deplored the foreign interference in the region, which it said has inflicted the “sedition of Salafi and Takfiri (extremist) terrorism” upon a number of Muslim countries such as Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Bahrain and Iraq.
The demonstrators then took a swipe at the US officials for their “impolite, outrageous and threatening” remarks about the viability of military option against the Islamic Republic, and threw their weight behind the Iranian military commanders who made a “revolutionary and decisive” reply to the Americans.
This comes after some senior US officials have in recent weeks stepped up their provocative remarks about a possible military action against Iran.
Meanwhile, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Monday played down the US “ludicrous talk” of military action as a viable option against Iran, arguing that even the American military commanders are well aware that such an option would not work anymore.
Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari lashed out at Washington for its repeated rhetoric of taking military action against Iran, and explained that the US claim that military option is still on the table is just to make the White House’s policies more palatable to the US nation.
The commander said Iran has already advised the US officials to consult with the American elites before talking about any military action, and added, “We have no doubt, according to the obtained reports, the American military forces and generals have also advised their political officials of the reality that such an option (viability of military action) will be of no avail in dealing with Iran.”
