these people, demonstrating across the street from the New York
exchange on Saturday, want to become Muslim revolutionaries?
is the most recent claim being made by Iran's theocratic regime.

protests that began in New York on September 17 and have now spread across the world
reflect a yearning on the part of the West to reject capitalism and embrace
Islam and the Iranian Revolution? According to columnist Hussein Shariatmadari
of Iran's government-run Kayhan, the events now taking place across the
globe were forecast by the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and Iran's current
theocratic dictator, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
The news reached the city of
Medina overnight. The enemies of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) had
set aside their age-old hostilities and prepared attack Medina as a coalition.
Their mission: uproot newly-born Islam and finish off its small number of
followers, just like occurred during the eight-year Iraqi-imposed war or the
2008 post-presidential election unrest.
The Prophet (PBUH) agreed to
a proposal by Salman
al-Farisi, his companion, and ordered his followers to dig trenches around
the besieged city to stop the invasion and minimize casualties. While digging a
trench, a pick sparked when it struck a rock. It was then the Prophet (PBUH)
said, “Through the flash of this pick I foresee the collapse of Rome and the Sassanid empires” - the two
superpowers of those days.
Some must have thought
otherwise, since the tiny army of Muslims was confronting the dominant forces
of the infidels! But it didn’t take long for the Muslim army to conquer Rome
and the Sassanids and topple their repressive rulers. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
was no longer among them - but he must have seen it from above.
THE ISLAMIC REVOLUTION
In the early years of Iran's Islamic Revolution,
we saw an analogous war party when enemies of Iran, both from within and without,
formed a coalition. The superpowers of the East and West had set aside their
differences to douse the flames of the Islamic Revolution. In those days,
materialistic eyes saw little chance for the fledgling Islamic Republic.
But the late Imam Khomeini foresaw that the days
of oppressive regimes across the region were numbered. He also forecast the
fall of hegemonic powers and said, “I can say with confidence that Islam will
rout the hegemonic powers. One after another, Islam will overcome its internal
and external barriers before conquering all major global fronts.”
The late Imam further
maintained that, “The days of the cul-de-sac, of desperation and of living in
the lands of the infidels are over. We hope all Muslims will live in freedom
and peace. We seek to uproot Zionism, capitalism, and communism. Sooner or
later, the day will dawn for all nations. Today the world pines for the
immaculate religion of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Our war is a war of
ideology. It has no geographical boundaries. Allah will help us withstand the
hardship of battle with the sweet taste of the enemy’s defeat. Is there
anything sweater than seeing the Iranian nation strike America like a thunderbolt?”
IMAM KHOMEINI PREDICTED TODAY'S EVENTS
The late Imam made all these
predictions, and without our records no one would be able to recount them today.
Indeed, he saw these fateful events and defining moments before anyone else. It's
as if the late Imam was from above and recounted these events that are now unfolding
across the globe. Isn’t it true that current events in the Muslim world and
beyond are what he predicted decades ago?!
These fundamental and
unfolding events (read: revolutions) are moving faster than anyone could have possibly
predicted. In fact, many have been caught off guard. People were still fixating
on Tunisia and the fate of its fugitive ruler Bin Ali when a
second revolution ignited in Egypt, toppling its pro-Israel and pro-West puppet
regime. Then while the world fixated on Egypt, similar revolutions began in
Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, Jordan, and of course, Saudi Arabia.
All eyes were focused on the
Middle East and North Africa, when we heard Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei talk of
the imminent awakening at the heart of the West, where people would take to the
streets in Britain, Greece, Italy, Spain, Australia and the United States.
The Washington Post
tells President Barack Obama to “leave the Middle East alone because the real
threat is here at home.” The Daily Mail publishes a 25-year-old quote
from Alvin Toffler, an
American writer and futurist, who warned the European Union of the Islamic
Revolution: “The Khomeini movement is not restricted to the Muslim world. This
man is calling on all Muslims to fight secularism.”
Shimon Peres talks of the
memoirs of Moshe Dayan.
On October 6, 1979, Dayan referred to the Islamic Revolution as "an
earthquake that shook the foundations of Israel.” Likewise, American strategist
acknowledges that the U.S. has dealt with many crises in the past, and found
solutions for each and every one. Whether they were difficult or easy,
solutions were to be found. But for the current crisis in the U.S. and Europe, Wallerstein
says there is no solution.
economist Samir Amin (who
also a critic of capitalism), speaking of the ongoing protests in the United
States and Europe, says, “Up to now, capitalism thrived by devouring the
resources of other nations. But now that there is nothing left to gulp down, it
has turned into a snake that is eating its own tail.”
Likewise, for France's Le
Post, Zionist columnist Zirahuen Duvoir writes that, “This revolt (read:
uprising) that the West is desperate to call the Arab Spring, is part of
Iranian ideology. It is the spearhead of a global revolution in which Islam
will conquer the world. What has happened in the Muslim world and what is
happening in the U.S. and Europe is indeed the beginning of a grand victory for
It is worth repeating what
the late Imam Khomeini said years ago: “One after another, Islam will overcome
its internal and external barriers before conquering all major global fronts.”
WALL STREET PROTESTS HERALD END OF INJUSTICE
The human eye can't keep up with
all of the developments and revolutions. The wave has given the Muslim world a
new lease on life and is spreading even further. The wave of awakening had
conquered only a small number of fronts, and the fighters were still counting
the costs and building new systems based on Islamic beliefs and values, when
suddenly it began to engulf the land of the Vikings and Yankees.
In September 17, many people in
New York took to the streets, calling their movement “Occupy Wall Street.” Some
U.S. officials and a number of naive elites were quick to dismiss the
protesters as a bunch of dissatisfied jobless Americans, and decreed that their
movement would quickly die. But Leon Panetta, former CIA chief and current defense
secretary said he was worried. Soon the protests had spread to almost 100 American
cities, where thousands of cultural and economic activists and students joined
the demonstrations. No wonder White House officials could no longer hide their concerns.
The protesters are calling
Wall Street and Manhattan their “Tahrir Square,” holding signs that read
“Enough of Capitalism.” This makes it clear that the situation is far worse
than U.S. officials would like us to believe. The American protesters are
unmistakably shouting that “capitalism is our main problem.”
IRANIAN LEADERS KNEW WHAT WAS COMING
Except for the late Imam
Khomeini and his successor Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, others couldn’t see
these developments and revolutions coming. Our supreme leader once said
astutely that: “Today, the U.S. is at its weakest point in history, while Islamic
Iran is approaching its golden years.”
Similarly, the late Imam
Khomeini once said: “The U.S. can’t do a damned thing.” In his words: The
hegemonic powers rule the world not by military strength, but by bullying other
nations. The U.S. is like a timid and toothless lion that has no mace or mane.
