Leader: Resistance Only Way Of Achieving Ideals

Islamic Republic,
A Manifestation
Of Imam Ali’s Path

TEHRAN, July 28--Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the resistance of Iranian people and officials is the only way of achieving the ideals and expectations of the great nation of Iran.
Addressing a gathering on the auspicious birth anniversary of Imam Ali (the first Imam of Shiite Muslims) on Saturday, Ayatollah Khamenei noted that justice seeking, piety, and resisting oppressors and bullying powers were the characteristics of Imam Ali’s (AS) way of life, IRNA reported.

Referring to Imam Ali (AS) as “a shining sun in human history that never sets and the great ocean of wonders and beauties“, the leader said the establishment of the Islamic Republic was a manifestation, although an incomplete one, of Imam Ali’s (AS) path.

“The identity of the Islamic government is based on the objectives of Imam Ali (AS) which are justice seeking and combating oppression, bullying and discrimination. This is why the world oppressors, who tyrannize human beings with their deceiving propaganda in the name of democracy, freedom and human rights, are against the Islamic Republic,“ he said.

He added that the Iranian resistance against the Zionist network of the world bullies was a manifestation of Imam Ali’s (AS) cause and urged the nation to pursue the same to achieve the national ideals of the Islamic Republic.

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the Zionist Israeli regime and the US government as the main enemies of Iranian nation.

Referring to the growing hatred of nations toward the US regime, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “In spite of the fruitless efforts of enemies, Iran is adored by Muslim nations and the Islamic Iran will strongly continue on its way with the mottos of justice and caring for people.“
