By Majid Rafizadeh, FrontPage Mag – “The West and mainstream media have made significant efforts to paint a moderate picture of the Iranian regime, with amiable sentiments towards Western and American values.
Nevertheless, on Sunday, Iran’s most powerful political and religious figure, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, reiterated the Islamic Republic’s real intentions towards the West and particularly the United States during a speech he delivered to the Majlis — the Iranian parliament in Tehran. He called the fight against the United States as a great and ongoing jihad.
When a parliamentarian and lawmaker loyal to the regime asked the Supreme Leader how long the nation should carry the jihad against the United States, he responded:
Battle and jihad are endless because evil and its front continue to exist… This battle will only end when the society can get rid of the oppressors’ front with America at the head of it, which has expanded its claws on human mind, body and thought… This requires a difficult and lengthy struggle and need for great strides.
From Khamenei’s perspective, the nation should follow this sixth pillar of Islam for Allah’s sake. The end of this jihad for the Iranian regime occurs when his loyalist Muslims wipe out their opposition. Many Western politicians, particularly in the Obama administration, seem to have a benevolent view of the Iranian regime and its president Hassan Rouhani.
Any scholar or policy maker who has closely studied the Islamic Republic of Iran and its ideological and geopolitical foundations is cognizant of the fact that the key principle upon which the Islamic Republic rules is its Jihad— and opposition to the United States as well as Israel. The founding father of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini said, it ‘is the established principle of Islamic nations and countries who, with the help of Allah, will accept Islam as the only ideology leading to salvation – and they will not go back from this principle in the least.’
He added, ‘in our domestic and foreign policy […] we have set as our goal the world-wide spread of the influence of Islam… We wish to cause the corrupt roots of Zionism, capitalism and Communism to wither throughout the world. We wish, as does God almighty, to destroy the systems which are based on these three foundations, and to promote the Islamic order of the Prophet.’
The fact is that the Islamic Republic of Iran is centered on this Jihadist and anti-American principle that Ayatollah Khomeini established, and his followers like Ayatollah Khamenei want to carry out these goals. The Iranian regime and its Supreme Leader derive power and legitimacy from this antagonism towards America and from pursuing this Jihad (which requires eliminating America, and other countries such as Israel from the earth). If the Iranian regime changed this fundamental organizing principle, it would not be able to yield power from its loyalists, constituents, and define itself as the “Islamic Republic of Iran.”
In other words, Jihad against America is in the roots of the Iranian regime’s ideological and political underpinnings.
Khamenei clearly stated that aggressiveness is required to pursue this Jihad, get rid of America, and achieve Allah’s will, and higher Islamic values and platforms.
Iran’s most powerful man, Khamenei, even extended the Jihad to the whole world …” Read more.
