The Supreme leader of Iran, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, recently announced that talks with America over ending their nuclear program are basically dead. But that’s not the big news.
He also said Jihad will continue until America is no more.
Sounds hopeful, right?
This is the leader of a major world nation. We’re not talking about some warlord in the jungles of Africa, or some little despot in a Latin American Banana Republic. This is the leader of one of the most powerful Islamic nations in the world. This is a guy who holds religious and political sway over MILLIONS of Muslims in Iran and beyond. This is trouble.
“Those [Iranians] who want to promote negotiation and surrender to the oppressors and blame the Islamic Republic as a warmonger in reality commit treason,” Khamenei told a meeting of members of parliament, according to the regime’s Fars News Agency.
Khamenei emphasized that without a combative mindset, the regime cannot reach its higher Islamic role against the “oppressors’ front.”
“The reason for continuation of this battle is not the warmongering of the Islamic Republic. Logic and reason command that for Iran, in order to pass through a region full of pirates, needs to arm itself and must have the capability to defend itself,” he said.
“Today’s world is full of thieves and plunderers of human honor, dignity and morality who are equipped with knowledge, wealth and power, and under the pretense of humanity easily commit crimes and betray human ideals and start wars in different parts of the world.”
In response to a question by a parliamentarian on how long this battle will continue, Khamenei said,“Battle and jihad are endless because evil and its front continue to exist. … This battle will only end when the society can get rid of the oppressors’ front with America at the head of it, which has expanded its claws on human mind, body and thought. … This requires a difficult and lengthy struggle and need for great strides.”
Khamenei cited the scientific advancement of the country. “The accelerated scientific advancement of the last 12 years cannot stop under any circumstances,” he said, referring to the strides the regime has made toward becoming a nuclear power.
Wake up, fellow Americans. We aren’t just fighting “extremist” terrorists in caves and on dessert battlefields. We are also fighting politicians and governments of supposedly respected nations. Iran is an enemy… but they’re not the only one. Don’t get caught up in a mindset that says only Islamic terrorists our out to get us because many of these Islamic nations are the ones funding the terrorists efforts against us.
