Press Shia Agency – Hujjat al-Islam Ebadi said that the United States and Europe are worried about Iran’s positions and that they have the right to worry because of Iran’s strong defence system.

Press Shia – In a meeting with the managers of the departments affiliated with the Ministry of Defence in South Khorasan province, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Alireza Ebadi, the representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei] in South Khorasan province, said, “The issue of defence is an issue that is embedded in the system of creation and in Shi’ism, it’s considered as one of the Ancillaries of the Faith. Jihad, which is the eighth of the Ancillaries of the Faith, is the same as defence, and the creatures that were created, along with creation, have a defensive motive.”
 
 
The Friday prayer leader of Birjand said that the defensive system is not just for the organs of the body but the defensive system also includes thought, reason and the psychology of man and added, “A person who is not mentally and intellectually healthy may change his mind and belief by 180 degrees by watching a film.”
 
 
Noting that if we want to compare mental and psychological illness to illnesses like AIDS, which is called a disease, but in reality there are several diseases and these inflict all organs, he said, “Those who don’t have healthy thoughts and rationality, in fact, they have become afflicted with psychological AIDS.”
 
 
Hujjat al-Islam Ebadi emphasized, “Society must have a good defence system. One weakness of a country is that doesn’t have a good defensive system. The reason that our enemies scream and impose conditions on Iran is due to the fact that they are afraid of the defensive system of the country.”
 
 
His Eminence said that the United States and Europe are worried about Iran’s positions and that they have the right to worry because of Iran’s strong defence system, stressing, “The concerns of the United States and Europe are that Iran’s plans are not compatible with their temperament and thus, they know well that the dreams they have for us will never be interpreted.”
 
 
He stated, “As long as our nation adheres to Islam, honour and dignity, the enemies won’t achieve their goals in this country.”
 
 
Hujjat al-Islam Ebadi said, “The country and the people of Iran aren’t an oppressive people but they must be powerful and have a strong defence system so the enemies don’t covet the country.”
 
 
The Iranian cleric argued that sometimes we see the enemies greed for country and unfortunately, some officials often speak with weakness and this weakness causes the enemies to covet our country.
 
 
He added, “Fortunately, the honourable armed forces and law enforcement forces have been steadfast and will continue to be steadfast over their promises since the time they pledged allegiance to the late Imam Khomeyni until now, which has been almost forty years.”
 
 
In conclusion, Hujjat al-Islam Ebadi said, “Each system has a front line and a rearguard and everyone must work together to defend it.”
