Iran Leader says world on verge of transformation

Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, says the world is on the threshold or the beginning of a transformation, which includes the weakening of the arrogant powers.

“The arrogant power of America and some European countries has weakened and will become weaker,” he said in a meeting with thousands of people from the provinces of Sistan and Baluchestan and South Khorasan in Tehran on Monday.

The US, the Leader said, is working on ethnic and sectarian faultlines in Iran with the aim of creating a crisis in the country.

“Our information tells us that the American government has created a crisis group with the mission to search for the points which they think can be used to provoke a crisis in Iran.

“With contemplation and study, they have concluded that there are several crisis points in Iran: ethnic differences, religious differences, and the issue of gender and women, which should be provoked to create a crisis,” the Leader explained.

“This is America's program but camels dream of cotton seeds,” Ayatollah Khamenei, using a famous Persian proverb to denote delusion.

About a year ago, Iran was hit by a cocktail of subversive action, which included riots under the moniker of women’s rights after a young girl from Iran’s Kurdistan collapsed at a police station and passed away later in hospital.

The incident was pounced upon by subversive elements in Sistan and Baluchestan and Kurdistan to trigger months of mayhem. Like the Iranian Kurdistan which is predominantly Kurdish and Sunni, Sistan and Baluchestan has a significant Baluch and Sunni population.

Ayatollah Khamenei said, "The enemy is serious in its enmity and planning, but we are also very serious in confronting the enemy."

"The enemy has targeted two basic points, one is national unity, the other is national security, and we must stand against this plan of the enemy."

Unity, Ayatollah Khamenei said, means that religious, political, group and ethnic differences should be left aside where the interests of the nation are at stake.

“All people from different ethnicities and religion groups should join together. Since there is a clear direction, this unity is important," the Leader said.

As for security, he said, "those who threaten national security are the enemies of the nation; they work for the enemy, whether they realize it or not".
