The 1979 Iranian Revolution: Was this event 34 years ago

the trigger for the Arab Awakening?



Glory to Iran's Islamic Revolution, Mother of the Arab Awakening (Kayhan, Islamic Republic of Iran)


Is it fair to say that Iran's 1979 revolution is the cause of today's Arab Spring? Ironically, since the Arab uprisings began, Iran's despotic regime has claimed that it is inspiring people around the Arab world to throw off their dictatorial rulers. This editorial from Iran's state-run Kayhan, on the 34th anniversary of the Iranian revolution, claims that the 'great Satan' and its allies are looking on with confusion as its Arab 'stooges' are swept aside by a wave that began in Iran.

Followers of the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini storm the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking a majority of the embassy staff hostage. They were held 444 days, doing great damage to the presidency of Jimmy Carter. They were finally realeased on the day of the inauguration of President Ronald Reagan.

"Attention please; this is the voice of the Islamic Revolution."


We all remember the thrill of hearing these words broadcast by Radio Iran 34 years ago on the 22nd of Bahman, as the last remnants of the British-installed, U.S.-backed Pahlavi regime were finally thrown onto the dustbin of history. In grand styled under the wise leadership of that sage of the age, Imam Seyyed Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini (may his soul rest in peace), the Islamic Revolution had triumphed.


It would be repetitive to recount the events of the past 34 years. It is a period replete with landmarks in the history of Iran and human civilization, as the Islamic Republic has continued to march toward the pinnacle of progress in every field.


This is why there is panic in the camp of the Great Satan and his devilish surrogates. In 1979, the fugitive Shah fled Tehran for Cairo to sob in the arms of that other U.S. stooge, Anwar Sadat - so brilliantly executed in revolutionary manner in October 1980 by Khalid Islambouli.


Today, Egypt has returned to the Islamic fold, and as Iran is celebrating its 34th 10-Day Dawn, the president of the Islamic Republic is being feted in Cairo.


Allah-o-Akbar (God is Great), the Islamic Revolution continues to act as a catalyst. The revolution that Imam Khomeini dubbed an explosion of light has triggered the Islamic Awakening.


Inshallah, very soon, the illegal Zionist entity will be removed from the map of Palestine, whose elected [Hamas] prime minister, Ismail Haniyeh, was present in Tehran's Azadi Square to witness the million-strong rally.


At the time, he vowed to continue the struggle against the Zionists until the eventual liberation of Palestine in its entirety - from the river Jordan in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west, and from the borders of Lebanon in the north to Egypt's Sinai Peninsula in south.


This most surely sounded the death knell for the cowardly compromisers including the unelected, unpopular, and oppressive Arab regimes of the Persian Gulf, all of which are at the wits end.


At any rate, without doubt, the wave of Islamic Awakening that is sweeping the Arab World, inspired by the historic events in Iran over three decades ago, seems poised to make even more heads roll this year, following the ouster of four notorious dictators in the past two years.


As we go to press, the oppressed people of Bahrain, who were peacefully marking the first anniversary of their uprising against the tyrannical minority regime of Al-Khalifa, are being mercilessly attacked on all sides by Saudi occupation forces and other American mercenaries.


These brutes are wrong to think that the popular uprising of the Bahraini people will be crushed. No, it will throw the hated regime into the dustbin of history.


The secret behind the success of Iranian Muslims in all fields, at home and abroad, including the spreading rays of revolutionary light, is without doubt the dynamic concept of Wilayat-e Faqih or the Guardianship of the Islamic Jurists, which has helped materialize popular religious rule in the country. This is far better than any of the flawed versions of democracy in the West and its client states.

On Sunday, as Iran steps into the 34th brilliant year of the Islamic Revolution, with tens of millions of people pouring into the streets across the country to reaffirm their allegiance to the legacy of Imam Khomeini, the free world is watching attentively, knowing these events are an energizer for all oppressed people in the region and beyond.


The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has issued a smashing reply to the U.S. for its hypocrisy, and has made it clear that there is no question of direct talks unless Uncle Sam repents and rectifies its ways.


This confidence is due in its entirety to the Iranian nation's adherence to the path of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) who prophesied: "If knowledge is in the Pleiades, his people (pointing to the devoted Iranian companion Salman al-Farsi), will acquire it. "
