Ayatollah Khamenei's statements on U.S. and Zionist regime's conspiracies against Iran

Khamenei.ir reviews Ayatollah Khamenei's statements in meeting with participants of the the International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Intifada, held in Tehran on April 24, 2001.

Dear brothers and sisters,

The main reason for the immense pressure, which is being exerted by the front of global arrogance led by the United States on the Islamic Republic, is our support of the Palestinian nation. The U.S. officials have said, in explicit remarks, that the main problem of the United States with Iran is the opposition of the Islamic Republic to the so-called “peace process,” which is actually the process of forcing the Palestinians to forgo their rights and accept a humiliating compromise with the occupiers of their homeland.
The ridiculous accusations--such as human rights violations or seeking weapons of mass destruction--are only empty claims aimed at exerting pressure on the Islamic Republic, and if Iran stops its support of the Lebanese and Palestinian people, the United States will also change its hostile attitude toward the Islamic Republic.
We consider supporting the Palestinian and Lebanese people as one of our major Islamic duties. This is why Washington is applying every form of pressure, aimed against the Islamic Republic, in order to stop this support.
The main U.S. strategy towards Iran is to create division between the united ranks of the revolutionary and devoted Iranian people. In order to foment discord, they are calling one group "reformists" and some other group "conservatives.” While claiming to support the first group, they are disseminating negative propaganda against the other group.
Furthermore, by aggrandizing some problems, they are trying to portray the Islamic system as inefficient in order to make the Iranian people disappointed with the system. They are also propagating the idea of the separation of religion from the state, but the U.S. plots have always been foiled by the strong faith of our nation.
Therefore, through their negative propaganda, U.S. officials seek to dishearten the Iranian people, especially our youngsters, and portray the Islamic system as inefficient by exaggerating our economic problems, despite the fact that economic problems are common in almost all countries around the globe.
The United States has also launched a smear campaign against the Islamic Revolution and Imam Khomeini, since Washington has received heavy blows from Islam and our revolution.
U.S. officials are concerned about the Islamic awakening of Muslim ummah and are deeply worried by the expansion of struggle and resistance in Lebanon and Palestine. Thus, they are making every effort to subvert Islamic thought and ideology by spreading poisonous propaganda against this divine religion.
As the struggle against the Zionist occupiers in Lebanon and Palestine becomes more extensive, the Zionist regime and the United States become more confused, and they are hatching more plots and increasing their negative propaganda against the Islamic Republic.
Nevertheless, the Zionists and U.S. officials should know that despite all their poisonous propaganda, the officials of the Islamic Republic as well as the devoted Iranian people are all unanimous in defending their Islamic and revolutionary ideals. Furthermore, supporting the Intifada of Palestinians in their resistance against Zionist occupiers is a cornerstone of our foreign policy.

We are sure that, through the continuation of the struggle of Palestinians and the support extended by Muslim nations, Palestine will be liberated, and Bait-ul-Moqaddas and the Al-Aqsa Mosque will be returned to the Islamic world.
