Deal, Struggle Against 'the Arrogance' Must Go On (Kayhan, Iran)
As the world
awaits historic news of a deal at the Iran nuclear talks in Vienna, Iran's
state-run media reports that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei is
saying that even if the two sides sign on the dotted line, the battle against
the United States, Israel and their Arab allies can and must go on. The reason
for this, according to state-run Kayhan, is that the Quran, in Khamenei's
words, 'mandates our drive against arrogance.'
Some may say that a nuclear agreement could soon be signed in
Vienna between Iran and the world powers. But that isn't the point. The point
is that even after a final deal is struck, Washington will continue its
hostility toward Iran. The warmongers will continue wreaking havoc across the
Middle East and North Africa – and for reasons that have little or nothing to
do with Iran or its nuclear program.
That is why Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei
says the struggle against the arrogant powers will continue – even after a deal.
In his words, "The campaign against arrogance is one of
the principles of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. The Holy Quran mandates our
drive against arrogance.”
So even after the conclusion of the nuclear talks with the
P5+1 group (the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China), there must
be no respite from our campaign against arrogance. There are many reasons for
-- With great impunity and no accountability to
international law, the United States and its Arab-Israeli allies remain busy
destroying sovereign nations, all because they have rejected foreign meddling
and said yes to democracy and self-determination.
--Thanks to the U.S.-led wars of terror and aggression,
hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and continue to
die in places like Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya and Afghanistan. Most tragic is the
fact that the United Nations is doing nothing about it: No resolutions, no
condemnations, no sanctions and certainly no charges at the International
Criminal Court in The Hague have been lodged against the war criminals
-- While the world hangs its head in shame, the apartheid,
occupation, land theft, war and crimes against humanity of the U.S.-backed
Zionist regime of Israel continue to destroy Palestinian lives.
--The medieval butchers of America’s very own creation Daesh as well as al-Qaeda and other terrorist affiliates
continue their reign of terror across our volatile region. Meanwhile, the
U.S.-led anti-Daesh circus continues to "entertain"
the world, creating even more violence and misery.
--Millions of refugees continue to suffer under the harshest
conditions across our region and beyond, all because of the military
adventurism of the United States and its Israeli-Arab allies. These arrogant
entities are desperate to preserve the status quo - even if it means the destruction
of all sovereign nations and communities.
These are just a few of the reasons Leader of the Islamic
Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei insists that the nuclear talks must never include
the discussion of regional issues with American diplomats. There is a reason the
bullying powers remain hostile toward Iran: It refuses to accept their arrogant
U.S. Is Ultimate
Embodiment of Arrogance
On Saturday, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei told a meeting of
Tehran students that the United States is the "ultimate embodiment of
His eminence met Saturday afternoon with 1,000 students from
across the country. Speaking at the meeting, he described the battle against
global arrogance as an ideal for the students, stressing: "The central
reason for the enmity of the global bullies toward the people of Iran is the
Islamic Republic's rejection of a system based on oppressor and oppressed."
Referring to the methods Marxist and communist groups use to
impose their ideas on others, the Supreme Leader said: "If news about a
return of the Marxist orientation to some of our universities is true, we can
be sure that U.S. money is behind it and that their goal is to separate and
disintegrate the bonds between our students."
When asked whether students should continue fighting the arrogance after the nuclear
negotiations, the Supreme Leader answered: "Based on Quranic
principles, fighting the arrogance
and global imperialism is never-ending, and that today, America is the very
epitome of that arrogance."

Ayatollah Khamenei said, "Fighting global arrogance is
the core of our revolution and we cannot put it on hold. Prepare to continue
your fight against the global arrogance."
Iran, the United States and other major powers are
struggling to break a deadlock which has held up a historic deal that would
bring sanctions relief to Tehran.
Tehran and the six powers have given themselves until today
[Monday] to reach an agreement, after their third extension in two weeks. The
Iranian delegation accuses the West of throwing up new stumbling blocks.
"We have told our negotiating officials that they
should only negotiate on the nuclear issue. Although the American side raises
regional issues such as Syria and Yemen, our officials have told them that we will
not negotiate over these issues. Fighting the
arrogance is a principle of the Revolution. It is a fundamental task.
Therefore, you should prepare yourselves to continue the battle."
Ayatollah Khamenei added that the campaign against arrogance,
based on Quranic principles, will never be ended.
Potential of Deal with America Goes 'Far Beyond' Nuclear Issue (Etemaad, Iran)
The Leader pointed to Iran’s "astonishing and spiritual
presence and influence” in the region, which have incurred the wrath of the Saudi
aggressors. His Eminence stated that the reason the Saudis and their supporters
have bombarded the houses of Yemeni people is the rage and anger they feel
toward Iran's influence in the region. He reiterated that "Despite their
claims to the contrary, Islamic Iran's influence in the region springs from a
divine blessing, not from physical force or the power of weapons. Like [late
Iranian jurist] ShahidBeheshti, we would
like to say to enemies of the people, 'Go and die of your rage and
The Leader said Saudi Arabia and its allies have been brutally
pounding Yemen, killing the innocent and oppressed Yemeni people for over 100
days mainly due to Iran’s regional influence.
Ayatollah Khamenei added that in covert talks among themselves,
the U.S. and the reactionary states of the region admit to Iran’s regional
influence, but can do nothing about it.
