A chilling threat to US? Iran leader says Jihad will continue till America is DESTROYED
Tehran: Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that his country’s struggle will end once it defeats the oppression by US. Khamenei said Iran needed to develop a more combative mindset in order to achieve its higher Islamic role and stand up to ‘oppressors’.
While speaking to members of parliament in Tehran, Khamenei said Iran must be armed and ‘have the capability to defend itself’ in a ‘world full of thieves’.
According to Daily Mail, “Khamenei’s comments came as negotiations with the international community over Iran’s nuclear programme ran into a stalemate, with Tehran saying world powers were ‘demanding too much’. Battle and jihad are endless because evil and its front continue to exist,’ Khamenei told MPs, according to a translation by US news site The Daily Caller. This battle will only end when the society can get rid of the oppressors’ front with America at the head of it, which has expanded its claws on human mind, body and thought. This requires a difficult and lengthy struggle and need for great strides.’ The Daily Caller’s translation of a Fars News Agency report is by a reporter pseudonymously bylined Reza Khalili, who claims to be a former CIA agent in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.”
The report said, “Khamenei’s address to Parliament on Sunday continued with veiled references to the actions of the West and Arab states as he justified Iran’s continued defiance of international sanctions against its nuclear programme. ‘Logic and reason command that for Iran, in order to pass through a region full of pirates, needs to arm itself and must have the capability to defend itself,’ he said. ‘They should stop demanding too much’: Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who says the impasse in nuclear talks is not his fault. Today’s world is full of thieves and plunderers of human honour, dignity and morality who are equipped with knowledge, wealth and power, and under the pretense of humanity easily commit crimes and betray human ideals and start wars in different parts of the world’.”
