IRGC Public Relations Department Lieutenant General Ramezan Sharif says Islamic Republic must be careful about the next plots of the United States government against the establishment of Islamic Revolution in this country. In last 30 years, tensions between Iran and U.S. have been increased dramatically and Iranian government usually accuses the other side of agitating Iranian citizens against the system.
“The global arrogance is investing smartly and widely on plots against Iran. They are trying to increase their current influence on people and agitate them against the system. For example the United States government is funding and supporting satellite television channels which are working against Iran and Islam.” General Ramezan Sharif, one of the top commanders of IRGC, said during a seminar.
“Western countries have understood the importance of religious leaders’ places in Muslim countries. So their intention is undermining this holy position. They are pursuing the same policy to cope with the power of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei but Iranians are aware of this plot.” Ramezan Sharif continued.
He also went on to say that Iran’s Islamic Revolution has affected on Arab Spring. “Today we see that people from all around the world are getting more from Islamic Revolution as Arabs and Muslims are doing their best to topple monarchy regimes in their own countries.”
The authorities of Iran always use the phrase of ”Islamic Awakening” rather than “Arab Spring”. Ayatollah Khamenei believes “running Islamic rules” is the main demand of these revolutions in region.
