Top General: Leader’s Letter, Beacon of Hope for Western Youth
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces praised Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei’s recent letter to the Western youth, saying the message offered hope to the young generation mired in the capitalist systems.
In a Tuesday address to a gathering of top military commanders in Tehran, Major General Hassan Firouzabadi described the Leader’s letter as a “reviving message” that presents a “celestial path” to the youth in the West.
Ayatollah Khamenei’s second letter to the youth in the West was released on Sunday, November 29, following the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
In the letter, the Leader underlined that it is only the “youth , who by learning lessons from today’s hardships, will be able to find new solutions for building the future, and block off-roads which have led the West to this current position.”
The Leader’s letter came against the backdrop of a renewed wave of attempts in the West to spread Islamophobia after a string of terrorist attacks claimed by Daesh (ISIL) shocked Paris on November 13.
