Press Shia – Ayatollah Sa’idi said, “On the eve of the fortieth anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, ‎those who resisted with their lives, property and their power for the Islamic system, will ‎never abandon their system despite these blind acts of terror.”‎

Press Shia – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in ‎‎Qom’s Qods Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad Sa’idi referred to the establishment of ‎the Zionist regime as a collaboration between the United Kingdom and the United States and ‎noted the crimes of this usurping regime against Muslims and said, “This criminal regime ‎hasn’t spared any crimes against the Islam ummah.” ‎


The custodian of the Holy Shrine of Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah added, “According to divine ‎will, the Islamic Revolution in Iran achieved victory and as it was able to confront this ‎criminal and usurping regime and today we see that the slogan ‘Death to Israel’ become a ‎strategic slogan in Iran and the world.”‎


He noted, “One of the most important and effective issues in managing the Islamic ‎Revolution and the country and in order to promote the transcendental goals of Islam is ‎unity of the seminary and university and the advancement of the cultural revolution and the ‎attention to the great stratum of university students and seminarian.”‎


Ayatollah Sa’idi honoured Student Day and said, “December 7th reminds us of the ‎revolutionary epic of dear students in confrontation with the stubborn enemies and arrogant ‎United States. On this day in 1953, a group of revolutionary students protested against the ‎official visit of the Vice President of the United States, Richard Nixon, and the resumption of ‎relations between Iran and the United Kingdom and were killed by the Shah’s police forces.” ‎


The representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] in ‎Qom said December 7th reminds us of the interference of the United States and the United ‎Kingdom in Iran’s internal affairs and the plundering of the country’s national wealth and the ‎disregard of the independence, freedom and dignity of the Iranian people and added, ‎‎“Student Day teaches that revolutionary and committed students must be on the path of ‎independence, freedom progress, national dignity, the authority of Islamic Iran and ‎resistance against the evil enemies.”


Referring to the terrorist attack in the strategic southeastern Iranian port city of Chabahar ‎on December 6th, he said, “When the terrorist who sought to enter the Chabahar police ‎headquarters was confronted with the resistance of the brave police officers, he blew himself ‎up and two of the brave policemen were martyred and forty people were injured.”‎


Ayatollah Sa’idi said, “For many years, the people of Iran have been standing up for the Islamic ‎system with their lives and property and by offering their martyrs. On the eve of the fortieth ‎anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, those who resisted with their lives, property and their ‎power for the Islamic system, will never abandon their system despite these blind acts of ‎terror, but rather they will give them and their masters an unforgettable lesson with their ‎broader efforts.” ‎


His Eminence stressed, “Everyone must know that the security of the Islamic Republic is a ‎red line for all of us. The enemies must know that with this blind terrorism, their wish to ‎disturb the security of the Islamic Republic will be taken to the grave. The haters of Islam ‎and those who want to eliminate the security of society must know that they will be treated ‎in accordance with the ruling of the Holy Quran. The punishment of those who fight against ‎God and His Prophet and those who spread corruption on earth is death.”‎
