Iranian leader hails ”resistance”, says CIA behind terrorist groups

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali on Monday said that the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran and its perpetuation stemmed from the "wise resistance" of the Iranian nation to foreign powers.  


Addressing a large group of the Air Force commanders and personnel, Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that Iran's Islamic  Revolution is the "first great revolution of the world which has been able to bravely and powerfully continue its march towards its objectives on the right direction."

The Iranian nation will once again put on display its national  strength and public will on Bahman 22, marking the anniversary of the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, Khamenei added.  


The major problem of despotic regimes, led by the US, with Iran is that a country and nation which had been under the US influence and pressure for a long period of time is now standing against the will of Washington and all hegemonic powers and has not given in to the international dictatorship, the Iranian leader said. 


The Bahman 22 rally is a manifestation of the will of a nation  which is able to defeat any power with great military and political  potentials, he added, according to IRNA.                                                 

The "most wicked and mischievous terrorist groups are created by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)," he said, adding that moreover, "the Zionist prime minister who is the mastermind behind the assassination of Palestinian people is backed by the US officials.                                                            

The only solution to the Palestinian problem is to act upon Iran's recommendation, hold a referendum among Palestinian people on  their own fate and establish a popular government on the basis of the referendum as well as to make a decision on non-Palestinian migrants, Ayatollah Khamenei said.
