'Enemies of Iran will have the same fate as Saddam'

TEHRAN, Sept. 22 (MNA) -- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has stated that the assertion that the Islamic Revolution is over is only a delusion.

The enemies of the Islamic Republic of Iran will have the same fate as former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, the Leader said at a meeting with members of the Basij volunteer forces held in Tehran on Wednesday to mark the beginning of Sacred Defense Week.

Saddam, who had the financial, political, and military assistance of the global aggressors to confront the late Imam Khomeini, the Islamic Revolution, and the Iranian nation, died such a humiliating death, and history can repeat itself, Ayatollah Khamenei observed.

“The enemies pretend that they have targeted Iran, but in reality they have targeted Islam and the Quran, since they have realized that spirituality and the Quran are the engines of progress… of Iran,” he stated.

The Leader said that the enemy is becoming increasingly disappointed since all their efforts to undermine the revolutionary spirit of the Iranian nation have failed.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Ayatollah Khamenei noted that the Iranian nation is passing through a dangerous time in its history.

“Over the past 30 years, we have passed through part of this critical era, but the crossing of these sensitive and historic points in time is not over yet,” he added.

Sacred Defense Week is an annual event commemorating the anniversary of the beginning of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war. It begins on September 22, which is the day Iraq invaded Iran and began the imposed war on the country in 1980.
