Press Shia Agency – Hujjat al-Islam Mojtahed-Shabestari said that today the United States is in a weak ‎position and is in decline and said, “The Americans are trying to misrepresent the truth with ‎the tool of the media.”‎

Press Shia Agency – In an exclusive interview with Press Shia Agency News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Javad Mojtahed-‎Shabestari, the representative of the people of West Azerbaijan province in the Assembly of ‎Experts, argued that presently, the United States is in a state of weakness and ‎decline and said, “Due to the existence of some economic problems in Iran, the ‎president of the United States [Donald Trump] claimed that Iran was in a state ‎of turbulence and that its economy was in a dire situation, while everyone, with ‎a little examination, can understand that Trump is a liar.”‎


The teacher in the Islamic Seminary said that by using the tool of the media, the ‎United States tries to bring the people of Iran toward itself and stated, “By ‎misrepresenting the truth, the enemies are attempting to show the Islamic ‎system as unreasonable to the will and views of the [Iranian] people.”‎


Hujjat al-Islam Mojtahed-Shabestari ‎noted that the enemies are seeking to ‎propagate a dark image of Iran without reflecting of the presence of the people ‎in various fields and said, “If the smallest protest movement takes place in the ‎most remote part of Iran, the enemies will magnify and inflate it but they don’t ‎show the massive presence of the people in defending revolutionary aspirations ‎and values.”‎


Referring to the rallies in more than 1,000 cities and towns across Iran to mark ‎the anniversary of the 1979 takeover of the American embassy by Iranian ‎students in Tehran on November 4th, he said that the enemies are seeking to lie, ‎to fabricate and to not reveal the realities of the events occurring in Iran and ‎added, “We saw that this year, the rallies marking November 4th were held with ‎greater passion and were more widespread then ever before and the people ‎patriated in these rallies with more passion and intensity but the enemies try to ‎misrepresent these facts.”‎


Hujjat al-Islam Mojtahed-Shabestari stressed that the role of youth in advancing ‎the goals of the Islamic Revolution is undeniable said, “Since the beginning of ‎the revolution, the youth and teenagers have played a major role in various ‎fields. Therefore, the government must play special attention to the youth and ‎their role in the administration of the country. The guidance of the Supreme ‎Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] in this field will be a ‎priority in their work, as the youth are the engine of the community’s drive ‎toward progress.”‎
