Tehran – Lotfollah Dezkham, a close associate of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei threatened – ‘The Iranian people are fighting to spread Islam in the whole world. Iranians will continue their struggle with slogans of “Death to America!”, until the time we turn the White House into a ‘Hussainiya’ that is an ‘Iranian Islamic Center”.
The Iranian political system is designed such that all the rights are concentrated with the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. The statements of Ayatollah Lotfollah Dezkham, a close associate and representative of Khamenei, have gained much significance. ‘The Iranian people firmly believe that the Islamic flag will fly across the planet and that our saviour, Imam Mahdi will establish his global rule. Therefore, the Iranian people are making untiring efforts to achieve it’, said Dezkham.
‘It has frightened Iran’s enemies. If the United States were not terrified, it would not have imposed such comprehensive sanctions against our country. If US President Donald Trump didn’t fear Iran, he would not have stopped us from selling oil. Moreover, the loud Iranian outcry threatens the world powers. The Iranian people will continue with slogans of ‘Death to America’ till the time Imam Mahdi, the saviour of Muslims establishes his global rule and transforms the White House into a Hussainiya’, declared Dezkham.
After his controversial address, the attendees are said to have chanted strong anti-US slogans. The Iranian leaders have delivered vitriolic speeches against Israel and the United States even in the past. However, Dezkham’s statements at a time when a conflict appears to be flaring up between the United States and Iran, are only worsening the situation.
Some Israeli leaders have proposed a direct attack on Iran to curb their activities in Syria. Whereas, the Iranian defence officials have come to conclude that in order to stop Israel’s attacks on Iranian locations in Syria, it is imperative to strike them. Concurrently, a military option against Iran was open, reminded the United States as well. Furthermore, the US president has threatened to take action against the European countries, if they continue to transact with Iran, by violating the US sanctions.
Thus, the Iranian economy which is already under tremendous pressure may possibly collapse. Given the scenario, a close associate of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei issuing a threat has only added fuel to the fire.
