The objective of the enemies’ psychological warfare is to create hopelessness and separate people from the Islamic Revolution
Press Shia Agency – Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri said that today, the enemies have launched a media and psychological war in order to create pessimism and disappointment and separate the people from the Islamic system.
Press Shia Agency – In his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers in Qom’s Quds Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Seyyed Hashem Hoseyni-Bushehri said that the leaders must defend the oppressed and not allow the oppression of the people and added, “This issue is necessary for the realization of social justice and that the managers of the Islamic society must defend the rights of the oppressed.”
The member of the board of directors of the Assembly of Experts added that the institutionalization of oppression in society is a major obstacle to progress in all fields and doesn’t allow the implementation of Islamic and social justice to be realized and noted, “There must be no oppression in the Islamic society and the rights of the oppressed must be taken from the oppressors.”
He noted that about two million Iranians participated in the Arba’in pilgrimage and that the many of the enemies made disappointing remarks and said that the glory of Arba’in was reduced but the people created another epic and Arba’in was a very meaningful and great movement.
Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri stated that foreign media networks wanted to boycott the Arba’in pilgrimage just as they did in previous years, saying, “The media were forced to break their silence in the face of the greatness of this pilgrimage wherein the pilgrims came from dozens of countries but another conspiracy was initiated and they claimed that the pilgrimage was influenced by a government, this is a false claim because the Arba’in pilgrimage is a spontaneous and popular movement.”
In another part of his speech, the member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom referred to the forty-year-old challenge between Iran and the United States and said, “Despite all the threats, this year, the Iranian people showed their greatness to the world on the November 5th. The imperialist powers are seeking a unipolar world and to dominate over nations. Nations can surrender to the American bullying and allow plundering. In the region, there are those who have lost their identity and consider the United States as the angel of their salvation.”
He said that for the past forty years, the brave people of Iran have stood against all kinds of sanctions, plots and bullying by the enemies and said, “The people of Iran don’t forget the numerous plots by the United States and the arrogant powers. We have been under sanctions since 1980 and today, the enemies have launched a media and psychological war in order to create pessimism and disappointment and separate people from the Islamic system.”
Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri stressed that the enemies have created problems with the sanctions but today we have progressed in various fields that have astonished the world. The United States must know that the Iranian people aren’t willing to humiliate themselves to the will of the United States.
His Eminence added that American President Donald Trump announced November 5th the re-imposition of the “toughest” sanctions ever against Iran’s banking and energy sectors with the aim of cutting off its oil sales and crucial exports as the peak of sanctions and said, “[Such remarks were] mostly psychological. Officials must pay attention to domestic capacities, maximize the use of sanctions and reduce dependence and reliance on oil.”
He said, “The enemies had threatened to bring Iran’s oil exports to zero but according to one of its journalists, the United States has circumvented the sanctions and eight countries have been given exemptions, which marked the beginning of the retreat of the United States, and we must wait for the next retreats.”
