'Islamic Revolution brought US to knees'

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says political developments in Iran and the region indicate that the Islamic Revolution has brought the US to its knees.

Radical religious cleric known as President Ahmadinejad's spiritual mentor says attacks on Israeli civilians permissible, suicide bombings a Muslim duty

Tue May 31, 2011


“The Great Satan, the US, from the beginning of the [Islamic] Revolution, brought its military, financial, propaganda and political [campaign] empire to the scene to defeat the Islamic Revolution and the Iranian nation but the realities of the political arena of Iran and the region indicate that the US has come to its knees in front of the Islamic Revolution,” Ayatollah Khamenei said Tuesday.

The Leader referred to analyses on the failure of US strategies in the Middle East and said, "Thirty years ago, the Great Satan just lost one of its corrupted cronies, the Pahlavi regime, but today the US is witnessing that more regimes dependent on it are collapsing one after another."

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the isolation of the US and the revival of Islam were indications of the realization of God's promises and added that the US failure in the Palestinian issue was yet another indication of US failure in the international arena.

The Leader also said that the Islamic Revolution was on a higher status compared to thirty years ago and called on the Iranian nation and officials to remain steadfast and vigilant in the face of Western plots.



Iran cleric: Killing Israeli children OK

A senior Iranian cleric, who is known as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's spiritual mentor, urged followers to continue suicide attacks against Israelis, including children.



Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah, considered one of the Islamic Republic's most radical clerics, issued a religious edict on his website whereby suicide attacks are not only legitimate but are a must for every Muslim, a special paper by the Middle East Media Research Institute shows.

The senior cleric was responding to a question from a follower regarding the difference between "martyr's death" and "suicide." The man, who wrote anonymously, noted that "some people say that martyrdom operations are considered suicide and that they are haram (forbidden) because they contradict Islam."

In response, Mesbah expressed his regret that his follower has fallen victim to "propaganda of the enemies of Islam." He added that the follower was wasting his time instead of focusing on "uprooting the Zionist regime."



"When protecting Islam, the Muslim people depend on martyrdom operations. It not only is allowed, but even is an obligation," Mesbah wrote.



The follower presented another question regarding Islam's position on harming Israelis, wondering whether Hamas and Jihad actions against Israeli civilians are forbidden. He also asked: "How about the Israeli children killed in such attacks?"

The Iranian Ayatollah did not see fit to forbid the killing of children, only noting that Israelis can be harmed unless they openly express their objection to their government's position. He added that even in such cases, harming civilians is permissible if "they are used as human shield and fighting the aggressors depends on attacking those civilians."



Beyond these insights, the cleric did not offer further instructions and failed to censure the killing of children.



Notably, for the followers of Mesbah, his words are considered as a binding religious edict. On several occasions in the past, Iranian President Ahmadinejad also spoke in favor of "martyrdom acts."

  • If Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah was true to his words then he should set an example and strap some bombs on his body and walk up to the Jewish state and blow himself up. But he will not do it because he wants others to do the job for him. Go ahead and bow down to you moon god and hopefully a nice slim rocket will shot up into it.

    • @satan777 Check into the chatter about Pakistan, China and the Ukraine helping Iran. They pretty much are nuclear now and with a 3200km reach. I see a pre-emptive strike coming and it all hedges on what Pakistan's next move is. I'm no prognosticator but this September looks to be a very interesting month.

  • Listen up, you ignorant cave-men. Islam is a movement of complete ignorance. The only reason we give you any attention at all is oil. The second that changes, our attention to you will disappear.
    we don't care that you beat your wives and behead people for burning a Koran. None of us has any illusions we will change you and no one believes we should try. Every piece of technology you own was obtained from infidels and Jews. You'd still be shooting arrows and riding donkeys if it wasn't fo More..
