The capital Tehran and other cities and towns once again witnessed rallies in celebration of the victory that put an end to the monarchical rule of the US-backed Pahlavi regime.
The Islamic Revolution, under the leadership of Imam Khomeini, established a new political system based on Islamic values and democracy. By attending the rallies on Thursday, the Iranians reaffirmed their allegiance to the causes of the Islamic Revolution and its founder Imam Khomeini.
The Islamic Revolution had all the necessary ingredients of a popular uprising: Its core value was Islam and piety; it was under direct supervision of a leader whose only assets were sincerity, knowledge and faith in God Almighty; and more important than that, its main purpose was to serve the nation, protect national interests and rout tyrants of the time. All these noteworthy attributions made Imam Khomeini a popular and spiritual leader not only in Iran but also around the globe.
It was under his valuable leadership as well as national resolve that the Iranians similarly defeated the US-backed invading army of Ba’ath regime during the Iraqi-imposed war of the 1980s. However, that was not the final product of the revolution. After the nation single-handedly crushed the invading enemy and its Arab-Western allies in an unjustified and unequal war, other spectacular events started to unfold in the world that showed there was indeed a divine intervention behind them all.
Some of these historic developments were: The ouster of Saddam and his Ba’athist regime; the collapse of the former Soviet Union; the collapse of regimes which supported Saddam during the imposed war such as the former Yugoslavia; the humiliation of France and the so-called Great Britain; the breakdown of the American Empire, in particular after the illegal invasions and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq; the popular uprisings in certain Arab countries which once supported Saddam, and more amusingly, Saddam’s trial and execution by the elected Shia government of Iraq; the terrorist war on Syria that blew back and now the Europeans and many regional states are paying a heavy price for their regime-change fantasy; Israel’s failed campaign for regional domination; as well as Ansarullah (Houthi) domination in Yemen.
All these developments and many others translate into the fact that the Islamic Revolution has successfully managed to change the concept of regional-global status quo and socio-politics affairs. It is exactly for this particular reason that the Ansarullah movement in Yemen has now become an Islamic resistance, as a consequence of which the unelected regime of the House of Saud is no longer able to sleep at nights.
It is also for this particular reason that the Hezbollah of Lebanon joined the ongoing war on all manners of terrorism and extremism in Syria in alliance with the Syrian Army, popular forces, Iran and Russia – now with the full backing of the international community. It is also for this particular reason that the foreign-backed terrorist groups are calling it quits in both Iraq and Syria, all while the Saudi-led war on Yemen is not going anywhere.
Consequently, and just as predicted by the late Imam Khomeini during the early years of the revolution, the world public opinion is now more than ever confident that the end of the American Empire and its minions is nigh.
By participating in the Thursday rallies, yet again the Iranians demonstrated to the illicit regimes of the Capitol Hill, Tel Aviv and their regional minions that the ideological warfare and the regional proxy wars they have been fighting against the Islamic Republic of Iran since 1979 are indeed hopeless battles that they can never win.
