IRGC Commander Highlights Islamic Revolution’s External Influence
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari underlined that today’s grandeur of Iran is indebted to the Islamic Revolution’s external influence.
“The revolution’s external dimension is progressing well and today, all our grandeur is indebted to the movement of the Islamic Revolution in its external dimension, which means countering the hegemonic system and fighting against arrogant (powers),” Major General Jafari said in a speech on Wednesday.
He further emphasized that all revolutions across the world have either come to an end after several years or deviated from their original path.
Only the Islamic Revolution has continued on its straight path that Imam Khomeini set for the revolution, the IRGC commander added.
Major General Jafari further stressed that the enemies of the revolution have failed in all their plots to sow discord between Shiite and Sunni Muslims and find ways to oppose the revolution.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the commander emphasized that fighting against enemies and the global arrogance is the main concern of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei about the external dimension of the revolution.
In relevant remarks in July, Ayatollah Khamenei slammed the US as the "true embodiment of arrogance", stressing that the Islamic Republic's fight against the global arrogance and hegemony will never come to a halt.
"Based on Quranic tenets, the battle against the arrogance and hegemonic system could never be interrupted, and today, the US is the clearest embodiment of arrogance," Ayatollah Khamenei said in a gathering of Iranian university students in Tehran on July 12.
The Leader made the comments after a student asked about the future of the fight on arrogance following completion of the nuclear talks between Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).
"Fighting the arrogance is among the fundamentals of the (Islamic) Revolution and is a basic task; therefore, be prepared for continuing the battle against arrogance," the Leader told the students at the time.
The Leader explained that "the root cause of the global bullying powers' hostility towards the Iranian nation is the Islamic Republic's rejection of the system" which is based on hegemony.
