Iran’s ‘Punch’ Is Its ‘National Solidarity’

From Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA):

Iranians display national solidarity, a crushing response to enemies

Tehran, Feb 11, IRNA — Iranians on February 11 marchers Thursday displayed national solidarity, an alarming and crushing response to enemies.

“The rallies are a sign of freshness, vigilance, insight, commitment and crushing response of Iranian people and Islamic Revolution to enemies,” read an eight-point resolution issued at the end of the rallies.

The people renewed firm allegiance to martyrs, aspirations of the late Imam Khomeini and Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.

They said that safeguarding the Islamic Republic is the most important duty as support for “Velayat-e Faqih” (Guardianship of Supreme Jurisprudent), which is symbol of the Islamic and Republican features of the system.

The people said in a resolution said liberation of Holy Quds and Palestine is the Islamic Republic’s constant and strategic policy.

They said that supporting campaign to liberate the Palestinian territories, Holy Quds and Jihadi groups such as Hezbollah of Lebanon, Hamas and Islamic Jihad is a religious and national duty.

“The Great Iranian nation considers Quds as part of Islam and the usurper Zionist regime is criminal and inhuman supporter of international terrorism and cause of insecurity of region and Muslim states.”

They said in the third point of the resolution that unity, solidarity and national sovereignty are great asset for Iranian nation’s victory and resistance to the bullying powers and that any move by anybody under any pretext to harm the unity is a service to foreigners and treason to the aspirations of the late Imam, the nation and the country.

The ralliers emphasized unity on the basis of Velayat (Guardianship of Supreme Jurisprudent) and expressed support for country’s officials, especially those in the three branches of government.

They praised shining success of young Iranian scientists and elites, declaring that Iran considers its capability in advanced nuclear technology for peaceful purposes as its absolute right. It condemns foreigners’ plot targeting Iran’s undisputed nuclear rights, and that no body can stand the wise guidelines of the Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution and that no compromise on Iran’s absolute nuclear rights is acceptable.

They said that rallies of tens of million people on December 30 and 40 million turnout in the glorious June 12 presidential elections (85 percent turnout) is a clear sign of democracy, freedom, voting right and commitment to religious duty.

“While condemning questioning of the health of elections, rioting and plotting, the free nation of Islamic Iran asks the deceived individuals to officially recognize the right of the majority and voice regret and apology, thus turn to people and the leadership.”

The resolution’s sixth point asked the judiciary to strongly and firmly deal with the case of culprits and rioters and deal with those targeting sanctities on Ashura.

The seventh point said as long as the US has not officially recognized rights of Iranian nation, continues with military build-up and aggression, denies rights of independent nations, launches velvet coups, allocates budget for toppling the popular governments, stages campaign against political Islam, supports crimes of the Quds occupying regime, and the change slogans in absence of practice, any word about talks and relations with the US will be doomed to failure and will face crushing response by the great Iranian nation.

The eighth point of the statement said that Iranian nation seeks to proceed with national determination to progress and justice as the doctrine of the fourth decade of the Islamic Revolution’s triumph.

This is pretty much what we predicted.

And the fact that they have banned foreign media from these demonstrations and blocked all non-government controlled internet access should tell us all we need to know about their “solidarity.”

  1. Its amazing what a theocratic thugocracy can do when it kills its dissenters.

    TAKE THAT western world! (As they unfold the fist from a punch to a simple middle finger..)

  2. Right of the People

    Yep, that’s got me quaking in my boots for sure. Ever notice how dictatorships are really good at marching and showing off their strength until it comes to time to use it?

    The Iranian leadership is like a blustering bully, shaking its fist at the west, “We’ll show them!” Oooh, scary stuff.

    Reading the article, I was half expecting a reference to Hi-C punch!

    Sabre rattling is only effective if you are using real sabres….
