Iran's top leader hails uprisings

TEHRAN, Feb 4: Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei (pic) says the Iranian nation's voice is echoed in the countries of the Muslim world, pointing to the Tunisia revolution and Egypt uprising.

“Today, developments in North Africa, [including] Egypt,

Tunisia and some other countries have a special meaning for the Iranian nation,” the Leader stated.

“This is what was always referred to as the Islamic awakening created by the victory of the great revolution of the Iranian nation,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in his comments during the Friday prayer sermons in Tehran.

Khamenei noted that Tunisia's former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali was dependent on the US and even the CIA.
He also pointed to the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak as a “lackey of the Zionist Regime.”

Khamenei said that Americans and Israelis have become helpless in the face of freedom-seeking Egyptians and noted that irreparable defeat awaits the US and Israel in Tunisia and Egypt.

He made a reference to Egyptians' fight for “dignity and honor” and noted that Mubarak's biggest crime was to make Egypt a tool in the hands of the US.

Khamenei said that the Egyptian army would join the masses and will line up against the enemy, and reminded that the Islamic Revolution in Iran has disrupted the plots by Western countries trying to establish weak and vulnerable regimes in the Middle East.

Khamanei said Iran's enemies have been launching a psychological war against it for the past 32 years, pointing to the 2009 post-election events in Iran as the enemies' latest scenario to damage the Islamic Revolution.

He said their plots however will have no effect on the Iranian nation.
