Press Shia – Speaking in regard to the United States’ new sanctions targeting Iranian oil on ‎November 4th, Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri said, “Once again, Iran will overcome the crippling ‎sanctions that the enemies have drawn up and planned against the nation of Iran.”‎

Press Shia – Ayatollah Seyyed Hashem Hoseyni-Bushehri, the secretary of the Supreme Council of ‎the Seminary, said, “November 4th represents the three major events [in revolutionary ‎Iranian history]: the exile of the late Imam Khomeyni in 1964, Student’s Day and the seizure ‎of the Den of Spies [American embassy in Tehran]. These three events are linked together ‎as the United States and the arrogant powers have interfered in [all three of] them and this ‎day has been named as the ‘National Day of Fighting the Arrogant Powers.’”‎

 

The member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom said, “The enemies didn’t support ‎the Iranian nation before the Islamic Revolution and neither did they support the Iranian ‎nation in the victory of the Revolution, but rather their work was sabotaged. Despite all their ‎desires and sabotage, the proud of Iranian nation came to the fore and this revolution was ‎victorious.”‎

 

He added, “After the revolution, there hasn’t been a day where the enemies haven’t ‎sanctioned  the Iranian nation and, one after the other, the sanctions became neutral and ‎ineffective due to unity and patience.”‎

 

Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri stressed that in order to achieve their goals, the enemies are ‎getting help from media outlets which are hostile to the Islamic Republic of Iran and are ‎spending a large amount of money to meet their goals. By being vigilant and being unified, ‎the Iranian nation has been able to neutralize the enemies.‎

 

His Eminence said that in various periods, the Iranian nation stood against a variety of ‎threats and conspiracies with the sympathy and unity such that they properly managed and ‎administered the Imposed War [Iran-Iraq War] for over eight years and noted, “Today, with ‎pride and honour, even one inch of the territory of Islamic Iran is in the hands of those who ‎started the war against us and this is a sign of the greatness of the Iranian nation in ‎protecting the achievements of the Islamic Revolution.”‎

 

He stressed, “In regard to these sanctions, in regard to which, on November 4th, the United ‎States will impose another wave of sanctions against the Iranian people, I must say that the ‎United States and the enemies of the Islamic Revolution have had many sanctions against us ‎since the beginning of the Revolution. Perhaps there are no other sanctions left.”‎

 

Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri stated, “But what’s important is that if the United States wants to ‎impose new sanctions against the Iranian nation, with this sympathy that exists between the ‎people, the nation and the authorities, they have decided to give a big ‘no’ to the excesses ‎of the United States and not yield to the will of the enemies.”‎

 

In conclusion, he stated, “We hope that with God’s grace, we will overcome the crippling ‎sanctions that the enemies have drawn up and planned against the nation of Iran, just as we ‎overcome the previous steps with glory and pride, and we will celebrate the fortieth ‎anniversary of the Islamic Revolution with beauty.”‎
