Supreme Leader Meets with War Veterans

Supreme Leader Meets with War Veterans
IRAN  - Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei met with a group of war veterans on Friday, where he described the era of the Sacred Defense (i.e. the Iraqi imposed war on Iran from 1980-1988) Era as "a beautiful and fine picture".

 "The path that was started by the Islamic Revolution will be continued and in order to graphically describe the beauties of the Sacred Defense days and the details of the sacrifices made by our soldiers, it is necessary to write thousands of books with artistic standards," the Leader said according to his website.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to the achievements of Iranian soldiers in the imposed war as very valuable, great and astonishing, and added, "As the people who shouldered important and sensitive responsibilities during the Sacred Defense Era, you should know that after the lesser jihad, it is time for the greater jihad, which is far more difficult."

His Eminence reiterated, "In the current atmosphere of the country, if you insist on the principles and values and observe piety in different political, social, economic and cultural arenas, your work will be more important and more valuable."

"Today we are faced with two enemies: one is the evil arrogant powers and the other is our inner selves. If we manage to move forward and make decisions while observing piety, the ground will be prepared for spiritual transcendence and material progress."

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that avoiding sins is a requirement for transcendence, and continued, "By avoiding sins, half of the path will be traversed. Of course, the sins of those who shoulder political, executive, managerial, public relations and religious responsibilities have far more dimensions."

His Eminence said that appropriate actions by government officials will bring about calm for society. "Through resistance and appropriate actions, we can give encouragement to our society and of course we should know that this movement of the Iranian nation will not falter and it will not be derailed because of the tiredness and impatience of certain individuals."

At the end of his statements, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution added, "The path that was started by the Islamic Revolution will continue and you saw that those who failed to carry the burden of their responsibilities during the popular movement by the Iranian nation were immediately replaced by motivated youth. And by Allah's favor, these youth will carry out the responsibilities."
