Islam naturally stands against liberal democracy’s plot to dominate the world
WANA (Feb 23) – In meeting with the head and members of the Assembly of Experts, Imam Khamenei argued that the leaders of liberal democracy have been dominating the world for decades and and the religion of Islam naturally stands against such domination. This meeting was held on February 23, 2023 in the Imam Khomeini Hussainiyah.
Imam Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, said “political” and “essential” reasons are behind the widespread enmities toward the Islamic Republic. Clarifying his point, the Leader said certain enmities toward the Islamic Republic are related to political issues, such as its positions on issues such as Palestine.
But the main reason behind the enmities, he said, is the nature of the Islamic government, because it opposes those who believe in the Western prescription, which is against any kind of religious presence in social affairs, or opposes the leaders of liberal democracy, who have devised a plot to dominate over and plunder the world’s resources, hiding behind the banner of freedom and democracy.
The Islamic Republic, according to the Leader, has disrupted such a plot by uniting “democracy” and “religion”.
During the meeting, Imam Khamenei congratulated the Assembly on the beginning of the month of Sha’ban and the Sha’ban holidays. He described the Assembly of Experts as a true symbol of the combination of republic and Islam. “This assembly is elected by the people in light of the completely legitimate implementation of democracy, while being composed of religious scholars, showing the religious essence of the system,” the Leader stated.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution considered the position, importance and sensitivity of the Assembly of Experts to be above any other center or organization in the country. “This assembly determines the leadership [of the country] and with vigilance, it guarantees the existence and continuity of the leadership conditions.”
Imam Khamenei considered the Assembly of Experts’ endeavors in dealing with various issues in the country as a correct matter and a demand of the leadership. He added that the most important issue is to pay serious attention to the internal and external duties of the members of the Assembly of Experts.
The Leader of the Revolution considered it important for the investigative committee of the Assembly of Experts to continue to handle and take care of “maintaining the conditions of leadership and performing the duties stipulated in the constitution and other definitive duties of leadership.” He added that the most important duty of the [country’s] Leader is to monitor and maintain the overall movement and to make sure that the system’s important sectors are moving in line with the Revolution so that a deviation does not arise from the main path and that the Islamic Revolution does not deviate like the other revolutions.
