Khamenei: Regretful destabilizers and the gluttonous; negotiation fans
Iran Briefing Ayatollah Khamenei’s hardline supporters have attacked the government based on various excuses including the nuclear negotiation between Iran and the U.S. Supreme leader’s representative in the Revolutionary Guards, Saeeidi, began a new round of accusations of moderating, reforms, 88 intrigue and revolutionizing. However the eve of the 13th day of the Iranian calendar month of Aban, which has been designated as the Student Day and the National Day of Fight against Global Arrogance and the anniversary of the United States’ embassy takeover in 1979 and its 444-day hostage crisis, was the day when the commander in chief of the Islamic Republic found the opportunity of a public speaking, reading a sermon in front of his desperate fans of conservatives, cheering the military under his command up. Stimulating the Military and supporters of Ayatollah could facilitate them to move in the direction of the Supreme orders and the supreme commander of the armed forces and law enforcement as the orator, would conceal his concerns and dissatisfaction of the operated changes suppressing them by his subordinates’ assistance. He had previously tried it once during the reform period in Iran. Iran’s contemporary history never forgets “the case of chain murders” committed by security enforcements, attacking on student dormitories and suppressing the student movement in July 1999, the threatening letter of the senior commander of the Revolutionary Guards to Khatami, creating crises for the reformist government so that Khatami called it as “every 9 days one crisis” and etc.
The following article is provided by Radio Farda analyzing Khamenei’s recent speech on November, 2nd.
Radio Farda: Attacking the United States’ government and “the agents’ dependent on them”, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei criticized the U.S. and the negotiation fans in the country calling them “regretful destabilizers and the gluttonous”.
According to Ayatollah Khamenei, some dangerous moves and efforts made to infuse two mistaken thoughts in the minds of Iranian people and the public opinion, particularly the youth. At that, he stated: “These two errors are: One, the belief that the Imam Khomeini’s resistance against the U.S. and the fact that he said, “Whatever you want to shout out, shout it at the U.S.” were done out of fanaticism and stubbornness; two, the belief that resolving the country’s problems are tied to negotiation and compromise with the U.S.” He continued:” These two erroneous ideas are being injected into our society—particularly in the media and universities—by the U.S. and the agents’ dependent on them, as well as regretful destabilizers and the gluttonous. The fact that they propagate, “Imam Khomeini’s resistance was out of prejudice, stubbornness and arrogance” would erroneously insinuate that Imam Khomeini had no logic in standing against the U.S. This myth is taught while the Islamic establishment and the Iranian nation’s resistance against the U.S. is based on thorough logic and reasoning.”
Ayatollah Khamenei’s frequent harsh criticism, particularly after the nuclear deal, could be a sign that some officials of Hassan Rouhani’s government have defended the policy of negotiating with the U.S. According to him:” Some says lets compromise with America on Syria, Hezbollah of Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and even on the national issues.”
He emphasized, “Negotiating with the Americans won’t solve our problems: firstly, they are dishonest, unreliable, deceptive, back stabbers; secondly, the United States, itself, is facing a crisis, how can a crisis-stricken country resolve another country’s problems?”
The Leader of the Revolution referred to what the two U.S. presidential candidates- Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump discussed, during debates, saying:” These two candidates are revealing the truth and the miseries of the United States that we used to say much less than the reality, but some did not believe or did not want to believe; however the deprivation of human values and human rights, and the prevalence of discrimination and racism are today’s realties of the American society.”
He pointed to the nuclear talks, regarding the unreliability and dishonesty of the U.S. and added, “Today it is not only me saying they are unreliable; the respected authorities and even the negotiators–who underwent great measures and efforts—talk about U.S.A.’s unreliability.”
This is not the Ayatollah Khamenei’s first time showing his dissatisfaction with JCPOA, prohibiting indirectly any negotiations with America. Insisting on his “absolute distrust against the U.S.” he had previously emphasized that any negotiations with this country was considered useless and impede the progress of the country.
As well as that, the Supreme Leader’s representative in IRGC in last October accused the Rouhani’s state of “seeking relationship with America” through the nuclear deal in Vienna and continuing to follow the implementation of the “JCPOA 2 and 3”.
