Ayatollah Khamenei quotes
The evil family tree of the Saudi dynasty does not have the competence to manage the holy shrines.
Because of these (Saudi) rulers' oppressive behavior toward God's guests (pilgrims), the world of Islam must fundamentally reconsider the management of the two holy places and the issue of haj. They must not let those rulers escape responsibility for the crimes they have caused throughout the world of Islam.
S-300 air defense system is a defensive instrument, not offensive. But the Americans applied all their efforts for Iran not to have it.
This is a very important and necessary task, but is it a priority? Imagine that we buy 300 airplanes. It is not clear whether this is a priority or not. This should be studied.
Some think that we can get along with the Americans and solve our problems. This is an incorrect idea and a delusion.
The nuclear deal has holes which, if they were closed, would reduce or cancel its disadvantages.
The Islamic Republic won't be the first to violate the nuclear deal. Staying faithful to a promise is a Koranic order. But if the threat from the American presidential candidates to tear up the deal becomes operational then the Islamic Republic will set fire to the deal.
We do not violate the deal, but if the other party violates it, if they tear the agreement up, we will light it on fire.
It is a wrong idea that we can reach a compromise with the U.S.. The main argument is about the existence of the Islamic Republic, and this cannot be resolved through negotiation.
They use human rights, terrorism ... as pretexts to avoid fulfilling their commitments.
The U.S. Treasury ... acts in such a way that big corporations, big institutions and big banks do not dare to come and deal with Iran.
America is thousands of kilometres away from the Persian Gulf and conducts exercises there with regional countries … but if we have exercises in our own security realm they protest loudly.
In Western countries and places which are under U.S. influence, our banking transactions and the repatriation of our funds from their banks face problems … because (banks) fear the Americans.
The nation does not want a pro- or anti-government parliament, but rather a strong and faithful parliament that is aware of its duties and is not intimidated by the United States". he wanted a large voter turnout in the elections, but also voiced his support for banning any candidates deemed not to "believe in the Islamic Republic.
I reiterate the need to be vigilant about the deceit and treachery of arrogant countries, especially the United States, in this [nuclear]issue and other issues. Be careful that the other side fully meets its commitments. The comments made by some American politicians in last two, three days are suspicious.
We will not stop supporting our friends in the region: the oppressed people of Palestine, the oppressed people of Yemen, the people and government of Syria, the people and government of Iraq, the oppressed people of Bahrain.
We believe that no deal is better than a bad deal. A deal which is against the national interests. A deal that humiliates the great and glorious nation of Iran.
It is genocide committed by the Zionist regime. It is a catastrophe of history. Those who support the people responsible for these crimes must be condemned. The whole world, above all the Islamic world, must arm the Palestinians.
They (Israel) know that under these conditions they are more vulnerable than before. If they take any miscalculated action, they will receive a thunderous blow.
If we manage to increase our domestic production, the issue of inflation will be resolved, the issue of unemployment will be resolved and our economy will be strengthened in the real sense of the word, which will disappoint the enemy.
Do not forget that if the Palestinians, as they have already done in Gaza, succeed in liberating a part of Palestine and to manage their own affairs through elected representatives, then that is what they must do. But we must never forget the ultimate goal.
They divided your lands and looted them, be suspicious and don't be taken in by their smile. Behind that smile there is conspiracy and betrayal.
Confronting the system, confronting the principles of the system, standing up to and drawing a sword against the system, will get a harsh response.
Neither the establishment nor the nation will yield to pressure, at any cost.
Struggling on the streets is not acceptable. It diminishes the electoral process and democracy. All sides should stop. These are not correct actions. If they do not stop then any consequences will be their responsibility.
