Statement Analysis: Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, March 12, 2015

Supreme Leader's Speech in Meeting with Members of Assembly of Experts

On March 21, 2015:  Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called 

for “Death to America” on Saturday,  



March 21, 2015,  a day after  President Barack Obama appealed to 


deal and a  better future, and as US Secretary of State John Kerry 

claimed substantial progress toward an accord.


Is he serious, or is this rhetoric?  Statement Analysis gets to the 

truth. 


Is he our enemy, or, as President Obama says, our ally, with whom 

trust can be yielded with the 

Nuclear development?



The following is the full text of the speech delivered on March 12, 2015 by Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, in a meeting with the chairman and members of the Assembly of Experts. The meeting was held on the occasion of the 17th Congress of the Assembly of Experts.

I.  The Statement
II.  The Statement With Analysis, Emphasis Added.

Please note that Statement Analysis is best done in first language.  When working with a translation, we "move back", or "away" from the statement, itself, focusing upon bigger principle, while avoiding nuance and small detail.  This is more accurately called, "Content Analysis."

An example:

In Statement Analysis, when the subject answers a question with a question, the question posed, itself, is considered "sensitive" and the answer's specific wording is analyzed. 

In dealing with a second language, when the subject answers the question with a question, the question, itself is, still, deemed as "sensitive" to the subject; yet the analysis of the specific words in the avoidance is viewed in general terms and not in detailed specifics or small points.   

I.  The Statement Text

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and greetings be upon our Master and Prophet, Muhammad and upon his immaculate household, especially the one remaining with Allah on earth.
I would like to welcome the honorable gentlemen in this meeting. Besides the advantages that Mr. Yazdi, the esteemed Head of the Assembly of Experts, referred to, this meeting and congress has another advantage - of course, this advantage is for me - which is the fact that we have the opportunity to meet with you dear brothers and honorable gentlemen up close. This is an opportunity for us and I ask Allah the Exalted to bestow success on all you gentlemen and friends to carry out the responsibilities that fall on the shoulders of all of us in the best way possible.
First of all, I would like to congratulate Mr. Yazdi on his appointment as the chairman of this meeting. Well, his personality, experience and credentials are things which show the correctness of this election. I hope that by Allah's favor, he is prepared enough to carry out his responsibilities. Also, I would like to commemorate the memory of the late Mr. Mahdavi (may God bestow paradise on him). He was an outstanding individual and he was really an influential personality both before and after the victory of the Revolution. He was the manifestation of an active and knowledgeable clergyman. I hope that Allah the Exalted will bestow great rewards on him. I hope that He will bestow His mercy and blessings on the late Mr. Mahdavi.
According to the reports that have been delivered to me, your congress - during which organizational elections were held - was a very valuable congress. In fact, it was a model for other organizations to hold their elections the way you did. It was held in a very peaceful way and without the uproar and commotion that we usually witness in elections. Thankfully, you accomplished a great feat. 
Because of the conditions that dominate our region and the world, because of the challenge that exists between the Islamic Republic and some egotistic and arrogant governments on different issues - whether the nuclear issue or other issues - because of the economic discussions that have broken out in the country and the efforts that different officials are making, in different ways, for the sake of achieving Islamic goals and ensuring the interests of the people and finally because of the issue of Islamophobia which is one of the common phenomena in the arrogant and western world, I deemed it necessary to discuss this matter with you: what we understand from all Quranic teachings is that Islam commands Muslims to create a perfect and complete Islamic government. Islam wants the complete implementation of Islam. This is the general feeling that we get from these matters.
A religion that is satisfied with minimums is not acceptable from the point of view of Islam. In our religion, we have nothing like the religion of minimums. In many cases, the Holy Quran has blamed us for our satisfaction with some religious teachings minus others: "Those who have made Quran into shreds" [The Holy Quran, 15: 91] and "Those who wish to separate Allah from His messengers, saying: ‘We believe in some but reject others'" [The Holy Quran, 4: 150]. The latter is related to hypocrites. It is not even enough to be satisfied with very important religious concepts such as administering justice. We cannot say, "We are after administering justice and we will do it. So, Islam has been fully implemented". This is not the case.
Of course, administering justice in society is really an important matter. There is a holy ayah which says, "We sent aforetime our messengers with clear signs and sent down with them the Book and the Balance, that men may stand forth in justice" [The Holy Quran, 57: 25]. According to this ayah, it seems that the purpose of sending messengers, books and divine teachings is to administer justice. However we interpret the sentence "that men may stand forth in justice", it shows the significance of administering justice. There are two interpretations of "That men may stand forth in justice". One is that it is the people's responsibility to administer justice in their living environments and another is that we [officials] should behave in a just way towards them. Even if we consider either of these two interpretations or other possible interpretations to be true, it shows the significance of administering justice in society.
But this does not mean that the Divine Lawgiver accepts our satisfaction with administering justice and focusing all our efforts on it. He does not accept it if we ignore other Islamic rules. There is a holy ayah which says, "Believers are those who, if We establish them in the land, establish regular prayer and give regular charity, enjoin the right and forbid wrong" [The Holy Quran, 22: 41]. God's expectation from the inhabitants of the earth is first to say prayers and second to "give regular charity, enjoin the right and forbid wrong".
It is not the case that if we pay attention to the administration of justice, we will have the right to ignore the significance of saying prayers, paying zakat, enjoining to do good and advising against evil. The holy ayah "For We assuredly sent among every people a messenger with the command, ‘Serve Allah, and avoid taghut' [The Holy Quran, 16: 36] - this concept and command has been repeated several times in the Holy Quran - shows that Allah the Exalted sent prophets to promote monotheism, to prevent people from taghut and to worship God. This was the basis of their work.
There is another holy ayah from Sura ash-Shura which is related to God's command to Noah, Ibrahim, Musa and other prophets: "You should establish religion" [The Holy Quran, 42: 13]. What God wants is to establish religion, all of it: "And make no divisions therein. Hard to the unbelievers is that which you call them to. Allah chooses for Himself whom He pleases, and guides to Himself him who turns to Him, frequently" [The Holy Quran, 42: 13].
Allah calls for the establishment of the entire religion with all its parts and constituents. And the main opponents of this movement and outlook - that is to say, the establishment of religion with all its parts and constituents - are global bullies and arrogant individuals: "Hard to the unbelievers is that which you call them to". It is difficult for atheists to accept what you invite them to do.
Another example is the holy ayah from the beginning of the blessed Sura al-Ahzab: "Oh Prophet, Fear Allah and hearken not to the unbelievers and the hypocrites: verily Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom" [The Holy Quran, 33: 1]. It means that God is omniscient. He is full of knowledge about all parts of the universe and the way things work in it. God is also wise. He has determined our path in the world with wisdom and we have to follow it: "But follow that which comes to you by inspiration from your Lord for Allah is well acquainted with all that you do. And put your trust in Allah and enough is Allah as a disposer of affairs" [The Holy Quran, 33: 2-3]. There will be enmity against your movement. This is the main issue. 
The Islamic government that we claim to pursue is really Islamic when all parts of Islam - its outward and inner aspect - are preserved. Islamic government means all the capacities that form the general movement of the people and officials. We call this "a system and government". The sum of the capacities that lead to the public movement of the people and officials is the Islamic government. Now, the outward appearance of Islam is the statements that we make and the measures that we adopt on the basis of Islam. These things constitute the surface of the issue. The inner aspect of Islam is that we should define a goal, ideal and destination for ourselves. Then, we should do complete planning in order to reach it and move on the same path. And we should move on it with all our hearts and souls. If this is done, the inner aspect of Islam will be protected and perfected as well as its outward appearance. Besides, it does not have any limits for development. Well, this is the plan that we need for reaching these goals. 
Today, what we witness in the statements of arrogant powers and the opponents of the Islamic government - particularly, the opponents of the Islamic Republic - is their insistence on a change in our behavior. They sometimes say, "We do not want to change the Islamic Republic. Rather, we want a change in its behavior". A change in behavior is not different from changing the system. It is exactly the same. A change in the inner aspect of Islam is the meaning of this change in behavior. When they say that we should change our behavior, it means that we should abandon and forget about the main elements of our movement and that we should make no effort to preserve them. This is the meaning of a change in our behavior. This is what is referred to - in some writings and speeches - as the religion of minimums. It means decreasing one's ideals and this means the destruction of the inner aspect of Islam. This religion of minimums means the complete elimination of religion.
Now, under such circumstances, our goal and main guideline should be to pursue Islam in its entirety. We should really do our best - Allah the Exalted does not expect us to act beyond our power and capability - to pursue this. Our effort and goal should be to establish Islam - in its entirety and with all its parts and constituents - in society. When this becomes our goal, they immediately bring up a certain issue, namely Islamophobia which is common in today's world. In my opinion, we should not at all adopt a passive outlook towards the phenomenon of Islamophobia. Islamophobia exists.
Some individuals are frightening peoples, societies, youth and minds of Islam. Who are these individuals? When we delve deeply into this matter and when we think carefully about it, we see that they are the same minority of bullies and greedy individuals who are afraid of the rule of Islam. They are afraid of political Islam. They are afraid of Islam's presence in the heart of societies. The reason for their fear is that Islam harms their interests. As a matter of fact, Islamophobia is a translation of powers' fear and anxiety in the face of Islam. This is the truth of the matter. 
You members of this Assembly really made efforts. The people of Iran made efforts as well. They showed diligence and they established and brought to power the Islamic government. They strengthened its foundations and they immunized and secured it against different matters. They strengthened it on a daily basis. This frightens global bullies. The Islamophobia that exists today is, in fact, a reflection of their anxiety and nervousness. It shows that you have managed to move forward. It shows that Islam has been able to successfully launch its movement until today.
Of course, despite what are they doing, their movement against Islam and their effort to create Islamophobia will produce the opposite result. That is to say, their actions will make youth curious about Islam. If the masses of the people in the world are given a little nudge and if we attract their attention, they will begin to understand why the Zionist press and television networks - those which are dependent on powerful and well-to-do cliques - launch so many attacks on Islam. This will pose a question in their minds and we believe that this question has certain blessings and that it can turn this threat into an opportunity.
We should make efforts. In the Islamic Republic, the great and important feat is that all of us - anyone at any level and with any capability in this regard - should make efforts to introduce original Islam, one that supports the oppressed and that opposes the oppressor. The youth who live in Europe, America and distant countries become excited about this kind of Islam. They become excited and it becomes clear to them that Islam means a force, motive and thought which moves against oppressors and transgressors and in favor of the oppressed. It becomes clear to them that Islam has plans to pursue this and that it considers it its responsibility to do so.
We should introduce the kind of Islam that supports reason and deep philosophies. We should introduce the Islam of thoughts and ideas and the kind of Islam that attaches great significance - through the Holy Quran - to reason, logic and thought. We should introduce the kind of Islam that supports rationality and that opposes partiality, fossilization and foolish delusions - these are characteristics that some people advocate in the name of Islam. We should say that Islam is this. We should say that Islam is committed to fighting against decadence. Today, there are many organizations that drag youth towards self-indulgence, decadence and indifference on different matters. Well, Islam - which believes that human beings have certain responsibilities - wants them to remain responsible.
We should introduce the kind of Islam that is present in people's lives as opposed to secular Islam. Secular Islam is similar to secular Christianity which imprisons itself in a corner of church and which has no presence in real life. Secular Islam acts in the same way. Today, there are some people who invite people to isolated Islam, one that has nothing do with people's lives. This kind of Islam calls on people to perform some religious acts in a corner of mosques or houses. We should introduce the kind of Islam that is present in people's lives. We should introduce the Islam of mercy to the weak and the Islam of jihad and fighting against arrogant powers.
In my opinion, this is a responsibility that falls on everyone's shoulders. Our promotional and scholarly organizations and our Islamic seminaries should pursue this goal. Today, they are targeting Islam on many occasions. And it is clear which people, organizations and orientations are doing so. They are dependent on a powerful and well-to-do clique which is active in economic and political areas and whose members are mostly Zionist and Jewish. If not so, they are non-Jewish Zionists. Today, we have non-Jewish Zionists in the world as well. Against these people, we should benefit from the opportunity to pose this question in the minds of people and youth throughout the world so that they think about why they are attacking Islam so vigorously. Then, we should provide them with real Islam. 
In my opinion, if we clergymen, ulama and people who are working in religious areas set this as our goal - that is to say, implementing Islam in its entirety and confronting such enmities - we will make many achievements.
[Another issue is that] we are faced with some global challenges. I believe that we should avoid adopting a superficial outlook towards our global challenges. We are faced with certain challenges from America and some European countries. Today, these challenges are clear because of the nuclear matter, but there are many different matters which are causing these challenges between us and them. We should look and see where these challenges come from. We should understand the root of them and we should avoid superficiality.
Moreover, we should delve into our problems in a deep way. Imagine that we receive certain blows from sanctions and that sanctions harm, in different ways, our economy and other areas. Where does this harm come from? If we delve deeply into the matter, we will see that this harm results from our dependence on oil and from the absence of the people in economic arenas. It results from governmentalizing economy. It results from such things. If we take a look, identify the main factor and cure it somehow, sanctions will have either no or little impact. The reason why the enemy can impose sanctions on our oil and hurt us by doing so is that we have based our lives and economy on oil. The reason why sanctions are imposed on different governmental organizations is that these organizations belong to the government. We could have involved the people in the arena of economy. Well, this is the result of the mistakes that we made in the beginning of the Revolution. In those days, we used to insist that everything should belong to the administration. We even entrusted our administrations with very small affairs. We should find a cure for these problems.
I believe that if we think and move like this, problems will be solved. In solving our problems, we will not rely on the kindness of the other side. We can really influence the challenges that exist between us, and our enemies and arrogant powers, one of which is the ongoing nuclear negotiations. In the present time, nuclear negotiations have engulfed our activities in the area of diplomacy and foreign policy. But in my opinion, this outlook, guideline and reason is completely effective in our negotiations with them.
I should add that the team and group that the honorable President has appointed for the nuclear negotiations are trustworthy and good individuals. We are closely acquainted with some of them and we really believe in them. And we know some of them out of their statements and measures they have taken. They too are trustworthy and diligent. They are really working hard. It is necessary for us to say this. Of course, although these friends and brothers are good and trustworthy individuals and although we know that they are working for the interests of the country, I am concerned. This concern is because of the fact that the other side is deceitful. One of the things which is usually invisible is the deceitfulness of those individuals and orientations that seem to be great and respectable. One cannot think that such people are deceitful.
Well, today, America has an attractive appearance and grandeur on the face of it: it has monetary, economic, political, military and security power. This is why some people ignore the fact that in this powerful system, some weak people are deceitful. But this is really the case. America is deceitful and dishonest and it stabs people in the back. America is like this. We should not think that because they have atomic bombs and powerful military equipment, they do not need to use deception and trickery. This is not the case. On the contrary, they desperately need to use deception, as they are doing so in the present time. This is a source of concern for us. We should be careful about the enemy's tricks. Whenever we have approached a specific deadline for concluding negotiations, the other side's tone - particularly the Americans' - has become harsher and more aggressive. The reason is that this is one of their methods and tricks.
As you can witness, the statements that they make are really ridiculous and disgusting. In the recent days, a Zionist clown [Benjamin Netanyahu] travelled to the U.S. and made certain statements there. In order to look impartial, they made certain statements, but they accused Iran of supporting terrorism. Well, this is a ridiculous claim. Today, everyone in the world can witness that the power and government that has supported and created the most vicious terrorists - such as DAESH and other such groups - is America as well as its allies. Despite their claim to oppose these groups, they do not stop supporting them. Those people who support, help and join hands with the Americans are supporting terrorism and dangerous and malevolent terrorists. America is outspokenly supporting a government that officially admits to being a terrorist - that is to say, the fake Zionist regime. As a matter of fact, supporting terrorism means this and it is the ugliest and most disgusting form. This is while they accuse the Islamic Republic of advocating terrorism. These matters should receive attention.
The letter that U.S. senators wrote recently is a sign of the destruction of political ethics in the American system. One can see all sorts of matters in that letter. It is clear that they are really on the verge of destruction. According to well-known global regulations, all governments in the world should be committed to the promises that they make. Imagine that an administration holds office in a country. This administration promises to do something. When this administration is replaced by another, that promise is still valid and the latter does not go back on it. These senators openly said, "When the current U.S. administration leaves, the contract that it has signed with you and the promise that it has given you will expire as if it did not exist at all".
This is a sign that shows the total destruction of political ethics in America. It indicates that this system is one that cannot really continue. It indicates that this system is totally ruined. This is while they say that they want to teach their rules and regulations to the Iranians. Well, we do not need their lessons. Even if we reach an agreement with them, we know how to act so that they will not be able to keep the Islamic Republic behind the door. The officials of the Islamic Republic know how to do so and they do not need their lessons. But this is how they act. This is really a sign of their downfall.
In any case, in all of our tasks, efforts and decisions on economic and cultural matters, we should not forget that our responsibility is to implement Islam in its entirety - by Allah's favor, if I live long enough, I have certain issues to discuss in the beginning of the new year. We should be after practicing complete Islam. It should not be the case that we compromise Islamic ideals so that we make an achievement on such and such an issue. Our success and progress is dependent on our ability to practice complete Islam.
If this is done, Allah the Exalted will help us. And divine assistance definitely and undoubtedly relies on us helping God's religion: "if you help the cause of Allah, He will help you" [The Holy Quran, 47: 7]. There is no clearer and more outspoken ayah in this regard. You should help God's religion. "If you help the cause of Allah, He will help you and make firm your feet". Another ayah is, "Allah will certainly aid those who aid his cause" [The Holy Quran, 22: 40]. These are among definite promises made by God. We should not ignore these divine promises: "Those who imagine an evil opinion of Allah" [The Holy Quran, 48: 6]. If we think that it is impossible for divine promises to come true, this is the worst doubt that we can have about Allah the Exalted. In the blessed Sura al-Fath, Allah the Exalted expresses His anger at those who think like this.
I hope that Allah the Exalted will bestow success on you and us so that we can carry out our responsibility in this regard and so that we can help ourselves, our country and our people to benefit from the blessings of launching this movement. I hope that Allah the Exalted will make the pure soul of our magnanimous Imam (r.a.) happy. I hope that He will make the pure souls of martyrs happy as well because it was they who showed and opened this path to us. It was they who helped us take it.
Greetings be upon you and Allah's mercy and blessings

II.  Statement With Analysis

Statement Analysis is in bold type, with emphasis (underlining, color) added to the original.  

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

This came from the Iranian website, and it is not known if the above words are from the speech, or Iran's introduction.  The reason this is important is that in analysis, we note the beginning of any statement as important.  

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and greetings be upon our Master and Prophet, Muhammad and upon his immaculate household, especially the one remaining with Allah on earth.

Analysis is best done in first language; here, it is second language, which means that we 'step back' and take only broader views, not small, detailed views, so as to remain accurate.  
"immaculate household" is reference to the home life of Mohammad.  Mohammad had multiple wives, including pedophilia, which is here "immaculate", or "clean", "without blemish", "without transgression."
This is fundamental to Islam:
a.  The Koran
b.  The life of Mohammad
c.  Tradition 

This is the beginning of the views of Islam on women.  
The more dedicated to Islam (as the subject would be here), (the more "devout") the more the life of Mohammad is to be declared, which includes the pedophilia.  This means not only praise, but imitation.  

If this is the beginning of the speech, it is important to the subject that Mohammad's household (members, domestic life) be upheld as "immaculate" to the subject.  

Short primer:  

Islam is a religion of coercion, not persuasion.  In keeping the pillars of Islam, the practitioner is not guaranteed eternal life, hence, the instability of the belief.  This is said to be due to the teaching that "Allah has to be free to change his mind", and only guarantees eternal life for two reasons:

1  martyrdom during Jihad
2.  death in child bearing by a woman 

Since life, itself, is unstable and uncertain, those who "dig deep" into the Koran, in order to be devout, learn its principle of conquest and order. 

The target of Jihad is in this order of "Infidels" is as follows:  

1.  "Hypocrites" are:  Muslims who are "disobedient" to the Koran.  This targets those who consider themselves non-practicing, or secular Muslims.  They are the number one target because they have 'turned their back on the truth' and are to be "beheaded."  This also includes Muslims who embrace Christianity. 
Secular Muslims includes Muslims, by culture, who do not support Jihad, pedophilia, subjugation of women, and so on.  They are "disobedient" and "willfully ignorant" of the Koran, inciting greater hatred. 

2.  After secular Muslims, Jews are targeted for death.  Jews are considered "arrogant" and should "know better" than they do. 
3.  Christians.  The doctrine of the Trinity, specifically, is mocked. 
4.  "Pagans", which includes homosexuals, women's rights, and those of no specific religious conviction who refuse to either embrace Islam, or pay the "tax" to Islam.  These are those who do not show "understanding", especially with regard to "freedom" (antithesis of order) and the role and "purpose" of women.  This is sometimes in the language when women education is attacked.  


I would like to welcome the honorable gentlemen in this meeting. Besides the advantages that Mr. Yazdi, the esteemed Head of the Assembly of Experts, referred to, this meeting and congress has another advantage - of course, this advantage is for me - which is the fact that we have the opportunity to meet with you dear brothers and honorable gentlemen up close. This is an opportunity for us and I ask Allah the Exalted to bestow success on all you gentlemen and friends to carry out the responsibilities that fall on the shoulders of all of us in the best way possible.

We always note the first name within a statement, as well as any repetition of the name, noting any change.  Here we have "honorable gentlemen" first (no females), but the specific name:

"Mr. Yazdi" is the first used, making this name very important to the subject.  
"Allah" is now "Allah the Exalted", that is, lifted up to be seen, recognized and credited.  
The "gentlemen" are then listed close to "responsibilities."

What are the "responsibilities" the subject hopes for?  We seek the subject's own words to guide us.  


First of all, I would like to congratulate Mr. Yazdi on his appointment as the chairman of this meeting. Well, his personality, experience and credentials are things which show the correctness of this election. I hope that by Allah's favor, he is prepared enough to carry out his responsibilities. 

Numerics indicate logic. 

Note that "Mr. Yazdi" is mentioned again, using the same title and last name (formal in English) and is congratulated on his "appointment."
Note the order of attributes:
1.  personality
2.  experience
3.  credentials
This indicates priority, which places "personality" above "credentials."  With numerics indicating logic, this indicates that Mr. Yazdi's personality may be of "logical" importance, therefore, we look to see if this is expounded.  We seek to avoid interpretation, allowing the subject to explain himself to us. 
Why would personality be before credentials?  

We also note "appointment" and later "election", which for English readers, are different things. 
Note that the subject only "hopes" Mr. Yazdi can carry out his "responsibilities", which may have something to do with Mr. Yazdi's personality. 
Since he began with "first", we expect a "second" to continue logic, otherwise we are viewing a change into emotional language. 

Also, I would like to commemorate the memory of the late Mr. Mahdavi (may God bestow paradise on him). He was an outstanding individual and he was really an influential personality both before and after the victory of the Revolution. He was the manifestation of an active and knowledgeable clergyman. I hope that Allah the Exalted will bestow great rewards on him. I hope that He will bestow His mercy and blessings on the late Mr. Mahdavi.

Please note the second name to enter, "the late Mr. Mahdavi" enters the language.  Note the praise is related to his "influential personality" and that the subject "hopes" great rewards will be bestowed upon him .
Recall in the primer that to the Islamic mind, the god, "Allah" cannot be held to an opinion:  he has the right to change his mind.  Therefore, even though Mr. Mahdavi was a praise worthy "clergyman", the subject can only "hope" he gets rewarded.  This speaks to the instability and uncertainty of the faith and signals to us that Mr. Mahdavi, although dead, (the late), did not die in Martyrdom killing infidels (see list above) 


According to the reports that have been delivered to me, your congress - during which organizational elections were held - was a very valuable congress. In fact, it was a model for other organizations to hold their elections the way you did. It was held in a very peaceful way and without the uproar and commotion that we usually witness in elections. 

The "gentlemen" held elections in a way that was not the norm, or what preceded them:  they were "a very peaceful way" and without "the uproar and commotion" that they usually had.  


Thankfully, you accomplished a great feat. 

They are now elected and "responsibilities" must be defined.  Please keep in mind that "personality", itself, is important to the subject: 

Because of the conditions that dominate our region and the world, because of the challenge that exists between the Islamic Republic and some egotistic and arrogant governments on different issues - whether the nuclear issue or other issues - because of the economic discussions that have broken out in the country and the efforts that different officials are making, in different ways, for the sake of achieving Islamic goals and ensuring the interests of the people and finally because of the issue of Islamophobia which is one of the common phenomena in the arrogant and western world, I deemed it necessary to discuss this matter with you: what we understand from all Quranic teachings is that Islam commands Muslims to create a perfect and complete Islamic government. Islam wants the complete implementation of Islam. This is the general feeling that we get from these matters.

We do not interpret, but listen.  We seek to learn what "responsibilities" these "gentlemen" must have the "personality" to fulfill:

Note the entrance of certain words in his language as we learn about responsibilities, which matter to their "region" first, and then the "world."

1.  nuclear issue
2.  islam0phobia in the western world being "arrogant"

and that these matters come from the teaching of the Quoranic teaching and not "Koran" (in either spelling) which indicates a teaching from, rather than specifically stated.  This is the difference between the command to "kill" and how this killing can be fulfilled.  Nuclear is not in the Koran, as a specific means, therefore it is "Koranic teaching" (English) and not "Koran."  The command to spread Islam by coercion does specify some killing (beheading) but not Nuclear. 

The "command" is that to have Islam means to have "perfect" (or complete) Islam.  We do not need to interpret "perfect" as "complete" since he uses both words.  

The "feeling" is "general" and it comes from "these matters":

Nuclear
Economic
Western arrogance and Islamophobia 
Complete Islam.  


A religion that is satisfied with minimums is not acceptable from the point of view of Islam. 

Statement Analysis recognizes anything in the negative as more important than that in the positive.  Here we learn a general teaching from the subject to the gentlemen who have been elected:  less than "perfect and complete" Islam is "not acceptable" from the point of view of the ideology (Islam).  

We now look for the subject to guide us to "perfect and complete Islam" for us.  Please note the close proximity to "nuclear issues" to "perfect and complete Islam."

Will this be nuclear energy and finance (economic)?  Or, is the reference to nuclear something else?

We let the subject guide us, and avoid interpretation:   


In our religion, we have nothing like the religion of minimums. In many cases, the Holy Quran has blamed us for our satisfaction with some religious teachings minus others: "Those who have made Quran into shreds" [The Holy Quran, 15: 91] and "Those who wish to separate Allah from His messengers, saying: ‘We believe in some but reject others'" [The Holy Quran, 4: 150]. The latter is related to hypocrites. It is not even enough to be satisfied with very important religious concepts such as administering justice. We cannot say, "We are after administering justice and we will do it. So, Islam has been fully implemented". This is not the case.

Note that the subject defines, for us, who "hypocrites" are:  They are those who were "satisfied" with "minimal" adherence to the Koran.  

Note next that "very important religious concepts" is said to be "administering justice."  We must learn what "administering justice" means to the subject. 

Each one of us has a personal, internal, subjective dictionary, which is why we let the subject interpret for us.  

We note that justice is associated with "we" (the subject and the elected "gentlemen" and "administration" of justice.  

We need to learn, from the subject, what administration of justice means:  

Of course, administering justice in society is really an important matter. There is a holy ayah which says, "We sent aforetime our messengers with clear signs and sent down with them the Book and the Balance, that men may stand forth in justice" [The Holy Quran, 57: 25]. According to this ayah, it seems that the purpose of sending messengers, books and divine teachings is to administer justice. However we interpret the sentence "that men may stand forth in justice", it shows the significance of administering justice. There are two interpretations of "That men may stand forth in justice". One is that it is the people's responsibility to administer justice in their living environments and another is that we [officials] should behave in a just way towards them. Even if we consider either of these two interpretations or other possible interpretations to be true, it shows the significance of administering justice in society.

Two "interpretations" are given by the subject:

we, elected gentlemen, administering justice; 
and "the people" have a responsibility to administer justice "in their living environment."
"Of course" is to accept without question. 



But this does not mean that the Divine Lawgiver accepts our satisfaction with administering justice and focusing all our efforts on it. He does not accept it if we ignore other Islamic rules.

The word "but" refutes or minimizes by comparison that which preceded it, making that which is now following, more important


There is a holy ayah which says, "Believers are those who, if We establish them in the land, establish regular prayer and give regular charity, enjoin the right and forbid wrong" [The Holy Quran, 22: 41]. God's expectation from the inhabitants of the earth is first to say prayers and second to "give regular charity, enjoin the right and forbid wrong".

We need the subject to interpret for us what is meant by "forbid wrong" in his language,  as he associates it with the "administration of justice" next,  as it is beyond "saying prayers, paying zakat, enjoining to do go and advising against evil" below: 

It is not the case that if we pay attention to the administration of justice, we will have the right to ignore the significance of saying prayers, paying zakat, enjoining to do good and advising against evil. The holy ayah "For We assuredly sent among every people a messenger with the command, ‘Serve Allah, and avoid taghut' [The Holy Quran, 16: 36] - this concept and command has been repeated several times in the Holy Quran - shows that Allah the Exalted sent prophets to promote monotheism, to prevent people from taghut and to worship God. This was the basis of their work.
There is another holy ayah from Sura ash-Shura which is related to God's command to Noah, Ibrahim, Musa and other prophets: "You should establish religion" [The Holy Quran, 42: 13]. What God wants is to establish religion, all of it: "And make no divisions therein. Hard to the unbelievers is that which you call them to. Allah chooses for Himself whom He pleases, and guides to Himself him who turns to Him, frequently" [The Holy Quran, 42: 13].


The administration of justice  will be "hard to unbelievers"


Allah calls for the establishment of the entire religion with all its parts and constituents. 

The "entire religion" is given in comparison to saying of prayers, etc.   There is something else in mind, associating with "administration of justice" that it is compared to, with the target of this now identified:  

And the main opponents of this movement and outlook - that is to say, the establishment of religion with all its parts and constituents - are global bullies and arrogant individuals: "Hard to the unbelievers is that which you call them to". It is difficult for atheists to accept what you invite them to do.

The "hard" administrative justice is towards:

1.  "Global bullies"
2.  "arrogant individuals"

Please note that this is another reference to "arrogance", which above was "Western" world and "Islamophobia."

For the faithful, there is prayer, paying tribute, but the part of the religion that is emphasized in order to be "complete", versus the "parts", is the "administration of justice towards the Western arrogant and Islamophobiac" ones. 

Another example is the holy ayah from the beginning of the blessed Sura al-Ahzab: "Oh Prophet, Fear Allah and hearken not to the unbelievers and the hypocrites: verily Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom" [The Holy Quran, 33: 1]. It means that God is omniscient. He is full of knowledge about all parts of the universe and the way things work in it. God is also wise. He has determined our path in the world with wisdom and we have to follow it: "But follow that which comes to you by inspiration from your Lord for Allah is well acquainted with all that you do. And put your trust in Allah and enough is Allah as a disposer of affairs" [The Holy Quran, 33: 2-3]. There will be enmity against your movement. This is the main issue. 

The "main issue" is that "Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom",
"God is wise";
He has determined "our path in the world", which is done with "wisdom" and
"we have to follow it", giving no choice to the Ayatollah (subject) and the "gentlemen" (those present).

This means that there is something to be done, which is "wise" but that natural reluctance may exist within their personalities, that must be over come:

"we have to", that is, without choice, but "have to" follow it, which they must "put their trust" in this, specific wisdom.  The subject has not specified what this is yet and we do not speculate, but wait upon the subject's own words to guide us. 

We know, thus far, that it is something towards "hypocrites", which are from the "West" and practice "Islamophobia", and that they are left without choice, because it is the "wisdom" of Allah, and not the wisdom they might normally embrace. 

This warns that that a difficult task is about to be assigned by the subject to his audience.  

The Islamic government that we claim to pursue is really Islamic when all parts of Islam - its outward and inner aspect - are preserved. Islamic government means all the capacities that form the general movement of the people and officials. We call this "a system and government". The sum of the capacities that lead to the public movement of the people and officials is the Islamic government. 

He states that the Islamic government is Islam, or "really" Islam but only when "all parts of Islam" are engaged. 

What "parts" are to be practiced?

He asserts that Islamic government is the ideology of Islam. 
Note the "outward" versus the "inward", with "these" indicating closeness versus "those" being distant.  The driving ideology (Islam), therefore, (can be seen by the subject) is outward and inward, with outward coming first.  Outward is defined as "surface" by the subject:  


Now, the outward appearance of Islam is the statements that we make and the measures that we adopt on the basis of Islam. These things constitute the surface of the issue. The inner aspect of Islam is that we should define a goal, ideal and destination for ourselves. Then, we should do complete planning in order to reach it and move on the same path. And we should move on it with all our hearts and souls. If this is done, the inner aspect of Islam will be protected and perfected as well as its outward appearance. 

Note that the inward part of Islam requires "all our hearts and souls.
Note next the negative as important: 


Besides, it does not have any limits for development. Well, this is the plan that we need for reaching these goals. 

The subject now goes to the topic of the negotiations over the nuclear facility, right after the word "limit" enters his vocabulary.  The negotiators want a "change of behavior" from Iran, which is here addressed.  

To "change" is to challenge Islam:  

Today, what we witness in the statements of arrogant powers and the opponents of the Islamic government - particularly, the opponents of the Islamic Republic - is their insistence on a change in our behavior. They sometimes say, "We do not want to change the Islamic Republic. Rather, we want a change in its behavior". A change in behavior is not different from changing the system. It is exactly the same. A change in the inner aspect of Islam is the meaning of this change in behavior. When they say that we should change our behavior, it means that we should abandon and forget about the main elements of our movement and that we should make no effort to preserve them. This is the meaning of a change in our behavior. This is what is referred to - in some writings and speeches - as the religion of minimums. 

To "change" is to become the "religion of minimums" or "external" Islam.  This is to "destroy" the "inner aspect", that is, beneath the surface: 


It means decreasing one's ideals and this means the destruction of the inner aspect of Islam. This religion of minimums means the complete elimination of religion.
Now, under such circumstances, our goal and main guideline should be to pursue Islam in its entirety. We should really do our best - Allah the Exalted does not expect us to act beyond our power and capability - to pursue this. Our effort and goal should be to establish Islam - in its entirety and with all its parts and constituents - in society. When this becomes our goal, they immediately bring up a certain issue, namely Islamophobia which is common in today's world. In my opinion, we should not at all adopt a passive outlook towards the phenomenon of Islamophobia. Islamophobia exists.

Note that the negotiations, in the language of the subject, to change any behavior, is to challenge the "inner" or pure Islam.  He has yet to assign specific definition to "inner" Islam, or pure Islam to this point. 

He has specifically identified the arrogant as the West.  
He has specified that negotiations are intended to change the behavior of Iran, and that this change is to destroy the true, or "inner" Islam.  

Question:  Who, specifically, is the target of Islamophobia in the mind of the subject?

Some individuals are frightening peoples, societies, youth and minds of Islam. 

Answer:  Muslim countries. 

He asserts that there are those who have an  fear of Islam (Islamophobia, yet he does not define it as irrational fear) and that there are those who are afraid of the "inner" Islam and are attempting to get Muslims, themselves, to be afraid of "inner" Islam, which is true Islam. 

Yet, he still has not given the "responsibility" that they are to carry out, which is "Allah's wisdom" and something they may not like, naturally, to do.  He continues with the "arrogant" ones who are attempting to frighten Muslims:  

Who are these individuals? When we delve deeply into this matter and when we think carefully about it, we see that they are the same minority of bullies and greedy individuals who are afraid of the rule of Islam. They are afraid of political Islam. They are afraid of Islam's presence in the heart of societies. The reason for their fear is that Islam harms their interests. 

He will define Islamophobia, but first we learn what they are afraid of: 

"political Islam", that is, the ideology followed that it put upon society (political). 

The ones who are doing this are not only "West" and "arrogant" but are "bullies" and "greedy", (Note outside the text in commentary that the US and its allies have been long called "bullies" and capitalism is called "greed")  and he then gives the reason for the fear:  Islam hurts their "interests."

Thus far, he has not identified specific "interests" outside of "greed."


As a matter of fact, Islamophobia is a translation of powers' fear and anxiety in the face of Islam. This is the truth of the matter. 

Islamophobia, according to the subject, is the "fear and anxiety" of losing one's "interests" due to Islamic political power.  

Any individual or group that fears losing its interests because of political control of Islam is, according to the subject, practicing "Islamophobia."

This is why we do not interpret.  One might consider a "phobia" to be an irrational fear.  We listen.  The subject (Ayahtolah Khamenei) defines it for us.  

Contextual note:  Those who have "interests", in the west, including those identified by the Israeli Prime Minister's speech includes:
Jews, Christians, Women's groups, gay people, and freedom of speech groups.  
Here, we have, thus far, only "West" and "greedy" (capitalists).  


You members of this Assembly really made efforts. The people of Iran made efforts as well. 

He united the people of Iran with the members of the elected Assembly together. This unity did not derive its power from Islam, instead, brought power "to" the Islamic government, as it already existed, but has gotten "stronger" by them:   

They showed diligence and they established and brought to power the Islamic government. They strengthened its foundations and they immunized and secured it against different matters. They strengthened it on a daily basis. This frightens global bullies. 

The strength brought to the Islamic government by the people of Iran and the Assembly is what brought fear to "global bullies."

Recall the language earlier of their "region" and the "world."
In the context of the negotiations to lift sanctions and allow Iran to develop the nuclear facility, the West has "anxiety" and now "nervousness."

Questions:

1.  What causes this nervousness?
2.  Is the nervousness justified?

The Islamophobia that exists today is, in fact, a reflection of their anxiety and nervousness. It shows that you have managed to move forward. It shows that Islam has been able to successfully launch its movement until today.

In Statement Analysis, we note that the specific words chosen reveal information to us.  Sometimes, this information is incidental, and called "leakage."  A recent example of one was where a pot-smoking father said he "smoked the polygraph."

Before, we had the word "development" enter the subject's vocabulary.  
Now, we have the word "launch" as part of his vocabulary.  We continue to look for contextual justification of the language, including the negotiations over the nuclear facility.  
Is it, in the oil rich land, only for energy, or is it for weapons?
If it is for weapons, what is the ideology for the weapons?  Is it self defense against its enemies?
Or is there something else?

We look for the subject's own words to guide us.  

Of course, despite what are they doing, their movement against Islam and their effort to create Islamophobia will produce the opposite result. 

Note that the West is in a "movement" (negotiations over nuclear facility) which, in opposing the nuclear facility, is opposing "Islam" and the west is making an effort to "create" Islamophobia, which the subject defined for us above. 

What is the opposite reaction to the West?

That is to say, their actions will make youth curious about Islam

It will make youth "curious about Islam."

In the subject's own words:  "Islamophobia" is to resist Islam and be "anxious" about its political application, and this fear will cause young people to become curious, not about Iran, nor about nuclear power, but about "Islam."

In the subject's language, there are two Islams:
1.  External
2.  Internal

In his words:  The internal, or pure Islam, has a difficult task for them (the audience), but is pure Islam and "must" be done.  It causes fear and anxiety among the West, who are greedy.  


If the masses of the people in the world are given a little nudge and if we attract their attention, they will begin to understand why the Zionist press and television networks - those which are dependent on powerful and well-to-do cliques - launch so many attacks on Islam. This will pose a question in their minds and we believe that this question has certain blessings and that it can turn this threat into an opportunity.

Note the introduction of "Zionist" with regard to the "press" and note:  "launch" with "attacks on Islam" in his language. 

Next, a third "Islam" enters his language, besides the external or surface, and the pure, inner:

We should make efforts. In the Islamic Republic, the great and important feat is that all of us - anyone at any level and with any capability in this regard - should make efforts to introduce original Islam, one that supports the oppressed and that opposes the oppressor. The youth who live in Europe, America and distant countries become excited about this kind of Islam. They become excited and it becomes clear to them that Islam means a force, motive and thought which moves against oppressors and transgressors and in favor of the oppressed. It becomes clear to them that Islam has plans to pursue this and that it considers it its responsibility to do so.

"Original" Islam is now introduced.  
The youth are identified as being:
European, American, and "distant countries."
Note the word "force" is employed and that "Islam has plans" to "do this", which is to "oppose the oppressors" in Europe and America.    


We should introduce the kind of Islam that supports reason and deep philosophies. We should introduce the Islam of thoughts and ideas and the kind of Islam that attaches great significance - through the Holy Quran - to reason, logic and thought. We should introduce the kind of Islam that supports rationality and that opposes partiality, fossilization and foolish delusions - these are characteristics that some people advocate in the name of Islam. We should say that Islam is this. We should say that Islam is committed to fighting against decadence. 

The word "should" is used five (5) times here about the "kind of Islam"; which is to say, it has not been done, but "should" be done.  
They "should" introduce: 
1.  The kind of Islam that supports reason and deep philosophies.  
2.  The Islam of thoughts and ideas
3.  kind of Islam that supports rationality and opposes partiality, fossilization and foolish delusions
4. We "should say" Islam is this.
5.  We"should say" that Islam is committed to fighting against decadence. 

We now need Islamic political (that is, applied in society under rule) definitions of:
decadence, foolish delusions, as well as what thoughts, ideas, reason and deep philosophies, all are. 
He returns to "responsibilities" in his speech: 

Today, there are many organizations that drag youth towards self-indulgence, decadence and indifference on different matters. Well, Islam - which believes that human beings have certain responsibilities - wants them to remain responsible.
We should introduce the kind of Islam that is present in people's lives as opposed to secular Islam. Secular Islam is similar to secular Christianity which imprisons itself in a corner of church and which has no presence in real life. Secular Islam acts in the same way. Today, there are some people who invite people to isolated Islam, one that has nothing do with people's lives. This kind of Islam calls on people to perform some religious acts in a corner of mosques or houses. We should introduce the kind of Islam that is present in people's lives. We should introduce the Islam of mercy to the weak and the Islam of jihad and fighting against arrogant powers.

In what should be done, he now likens secular Islam and secular Christianity together, which "has no presence in real life."

Then, he introduces the "Islam of jihad" and "fighting against arrogant powers" as two elements. 

Question:  What is the difference between "Islam of jihad" and the "fighting against arrogant powers"?

Who's responsibility is it to present the Islam of jihad?

In my opinion, this is a responsibility that falls on everyone's shoulders. Our promotional and scholarly organizations and our Islamic seminaries should pursue this goal

Education "seminaries" should pursue the goal of presenting Islam of "mercy to the weak" and Islam of jihad to the West and arrogant.  

Today, they are targeting Islam on many occasions. And it is clear which people, organizations and orientations are doing so. They are dependent on a powerful and well-to-do clique which is active in economic and political areas and whose members are mostly Zionist and Jewish. If not so, they are non-Jewish Zionists. 

Previously introduced was "Zionism" but here they are "mostly Zionist and Jewish" but of those who support Israel but are not Jewish he labels:  "non-Jewish Zionists."


Today, we have non-Jewish Zionists in the world as well. Against these people, we should benefit from the opportunity to pose this question in the minds of people and youth throughout the world so that they think about why they are attacking Islam so vigorously. Then, we should provide them with real Islam. 

The answer to the Zionist press and others attacking Islam is to present the youth "throughout the world" with "real Islam" which he has now brought together with "mercy to the weak" and "jihad" to the West and arrogant.  

In my opinion, if we clergymen, ulama and people who are working in religious areas set this as our goal - that is to say, implementing Islam in its entirety and confronting such enmities - we will make many achievements.

Is it Islam without jihad an Islam that is not in its entirety?  We look for the subject to guide us: 

[Another issue is that] we are faced with some global challenges. I believe that we should avoid adopting a superficial outlook towards our global challenges. We are faced with certain challenges from America and some European countries. Today, these challenges are clear because of the nuclear matter, but there are many different matters which are causing these challenges between us and them. We should look and see where these challenges come from. We should understand the root of them and we should avoid superficiality.

Moreover, we should delve into our problems in a deep way. Imagine that we receive certain blows from sanctions and that sanctions harm, in different ways, our economy and other areas. Where does this harm come from? If we delve deeply into the matter, we will see that this harm results from our dependence on oil and from the absence of the people in economic arenas. It results from governmentalizing economy. It results from such things. If we take a look, identify the main factor and cure it somehow, sanctions will have either no or little impact. The reason why the enemy can impose sanctions on our oil and hurt us by doing so is that we have based our lives and economy on oil. The reason why sanctions are imposed on different governmental organizations is that these organizations belong to the government. We could have involved the people in the arena of economy. Well, this is the result of the mistakes that we made in the beginning of the Revolution. In those days, we used to insist that everything should belong to the administration. We even entrusted our administrations with very small affairs. We should find a cure for these problems.
I believe that if we think and move like this, problems will be solved. In solving our problems, we will not rely on the kindness of the other side. We can really influence the challenges that exist between us, and our enemies and arrogant powers, one of which is the ongoing nuclear negotiations. In the present time, nuclear negotiations have engulfed our activities in the area of diplomacy and foreign policy. But in my opinion, this outlook, guideline and reason is completely effective in our negotiations with them.

Note the linguistic connections with "oil" and the "sanctions" and the "nuclear negotiations." 

Are those of whom are entrusted to negotiate with the United States over the nuclear facility also of the mindset of "pure" Islam and jihad to the West and arrogant?

This is important to know. 

The nuclear facility is objected to because it leads to nuclear weapons. 
Question:  Are the negotiators of the same mind as the Ayahtollah?

I should add that the team and group that the honorable President has appointed for the nuclear negotiations are trustworthy and good individuals. We are closely acquainted with some of them and we really believe in them. And we know some of them out of their statements and measures they have taken. They too are trustworthy and diligent. They are really working hard. It is necessary for us to say this. Of course, although these friends and brothers are good and trustworthy individuals and although we know that they are working for the interests of the country, I am concerned. This concern is because of the fact that the other side is deceitful. One of the things which is usually invisible is the deceitfulness of those individuals and orientations that seem to be great and respectable. One cannot think that such people are deceitful.

The Ayatollah states that the Iranian negotiating team is "friends and brothers" with them, of the "pure Islam."

Well, today, America has an attractive appearance and grandeur on the face of it: it has monetary, economic, political, military and security power. 

To the subject, the "attractive appearance" is not just monetary, economic and political, but is also:
military and security power.  He now introduces the words "atomic bombs" in the speech, associated with the "deceitful and dishonest" America:  

This is why some people ignore the fact that in this powerful system, some weak people are deceitful. But this is really the case. America is deceitful and dishonest and it stabs people in the back. America is like this. We should not think that because they have atomic bombs and powerful military equipment, they do not need to use deception and trickery. This is not the case. On the contrary, they desperately need to use deception, as they are doing so in the present time. This is a source of concern for us. We should be careful about the enemy's tricks. Whenever we have approached a specific deadline for concluding negotiations, the other side's tone - particularly the Americans' - has become harsher and more aggressive. The reason is that this is one of their methods and tricks.

He now calls America the "enemy" who concerns him because they are deceitful and using "tricks."

As you can witness, the statements that they make are really ridiculous and disgusting. In the recent days, a Zionist clown [Benjamin Netanyahu] travelled to the U.S. and made certain statements there. In order to look impartial, they made certain statements, but they accused Iran of supporting terrorism. 

Note "Zionist clown" is presented by the Iranian text with "Benjamin Netanyahu" in brackets.  

Here an allegation is now given:  "Iran supporting terrorism."

We listen for a reliable denial: 

Well, this is a ridiculous claim. 

He does not deny the claim.  Recall whom the subject is speaking to:  fellow "true Islam" followers.  
Instead of denying, he accuses "America" and its allies, as terrorists:  

Today, everyone in the world can witness that the power and government that has supported and created the most vicious terrorists - such as DAESH and other such groups - is America as well as its allies. Despite their claim to oppose these groups, they do not stop supporting them. Those people who support, help and join hands with the Americans are supporting terrorism and dangerous and malevolent terrorists. America is outspokenly supporting a government that officially admits to being a terrorist - that is to say, the fake Zionist regime. As a matter of fact, supporting terrorism means this and it is the ugliest and most disgusting form. This is while they accuse the Islamic Republic of advocating terrorism. These matters should receive attention.
The accusation of the "Islamic Republic" advocating terrorism is raised again.  
No denial is given.  

The letter that U.S. senators wrote recently is a sign of the destruction of political ethics in the American system. One can see all sorts of matters in that letter. It is clear that they are really on the verge of destruction. According to well-known global regulations, all governments in the world should be committed to the promises that they make. Imagine that an administration holds office in a country. This administration promises to do something. When this administration is replaced by another, that promise is still valid and the latter does not go back on it. These senators openly said, "When the current U.S. administration leaves, the contract that it has signed with you and the promise that it has given you will expire as if it did not exist at all".
This is a sign that shows the total destruction of political ethics in America. It indicates that this system is one that cannot really continue. It indicates that this system is totally ruined. This is while they say that they want to teach their rules and regulations to the Iranians. Well, we do not need their lessons. 

The vocal American goal of spreading democracy may be the "rules and regulations" that America wants to "teach" to the Iranians.  These may refer to the freedoms often cited, which may be "decadent" to the subject.  

The agreement is to open the doors of the Nuclear facility to inspectors to make certain that nuclear weapons are not developed.  

Does the Ayatollah accept this?  He does not make us wait to find out:  

Even if we reach an agreement with them, we know how to act so that they will not be able to keep the Islamic Republic behind the door. The officials of the Islamic Republic know how to do so and they do not need their lessons. But this is how they act. This is really a sign of their downfall.

The clash of ideologies:  Democracy versus Islam is here stated to be a "sign" of American "downfall" in that America does not understand, and it is this lack of understanding that is driving America, who is deceitful, into negotiations.  No matter what the outcome, there is still a "responsibility" that the subject and his audience must keep to   

In any case, in all of our tasks, efforts and decisions on economic and cultural matters, we should not forget that our responsibility is to implement Islam in its entirety - by Allah's favor, if I live long enough, I have certain issues to discuss in the beginning of the new year. We should be after practicing complete Islam. It should not be the case that we compromise Islamic ideals so that we make an achievement on such and such an issue. Our success and progress is dependent on our ability to practice complete Islam.

Note the sensitivity via repetition of the "complete Islam"

What does "Allah need help" in doing?  He answers this quickly:  

If this is done, Allah the Exalted will help us. And divine assistance definitely and undoubtedly relies on us helping God's religion: "if you help the cause of Allah, He will help you" [The Holy Quran, 47: 7]. There is no clearer and more outspoken ayah in this regard. You should help God's religion. "If you help the cause of Allah, He will help you and make firm your feet". Another ayah is, "Allah will certainly aid those who aid his cause" [The Holy Quran, 22: 40]. These are among definite promises made by God. We should not ignore these divine promises: "Those who imagine an evil opinion of Allah" [The Holy Quran, 48: 6]. If we think that it is impossible for divine promises to come true, this is the worst doubt that we can have about Allah the Exalted. In the blessed Sura al-Fath, Allah the Exalted expresses His anger at those who think like this.
I hope that Allah the Exalted will bestow success on you and us so that we can carry out our responsibility in this regard and so that we can help ourselves, our country and our people to benefit from the blessings of launching this movement. I hope that Allah the Exalted will make the pure soul of our magnanimous Imam (r.a.) happy. I hope that He will make the pure souls of martyrs happy as well because it was they who showed and opened this path to us. It was they who helped us take it.
Greetings be upon you and Allah's mercy and blessings

To the subject, Allah is both all sovereign, yet in need of help.  The responsibility is to "implement true Islam" in all lands.  This "true" brand of Islam is in comparison to "secular", "external" and "minimal" Islam, with true Islam not only brining mercy to the weak, but jihad to the arrogant West. 

The subject reveals the true intent of gaining the Nuclear facility, and that they have a "responsibility" to "implement" Islam, that is "order", upon others. 

Please note that a previous article discussed the religions of Judaism and Christianity as being religions of persuasion, whereas Islam is a religion of coercion and subjugation.  This subjugation is linked to opposing Western "decadence" as well as "Zionism" (Israel) and is, in the language of the subject, bonded to the Nuclear facility.  The subject reveals that those who are negotiating with America in favor of the Nuclear facility are of one mind with the "true Islam" ideology of the Ayatollah, the elected officials, and the people of Iran. 

He calls America the "enemy" and says that Iran "knows how" to limit the ability of the nuclear inspectors.  The nuclear bomb is the world's most powerful weapon, capable of destroying entire nations.  

He identifies the United States, by name, as the enemy, and that the driving ideology is "true" or "complete" Islam, that is, the Islam that is obedient to the Koran and the prophet Mohammad.  
The Koran's teaching is coercion, and the life of Mohammad is in striking contrast to excepted ethics and norms of Western civilization including pedophilia and degradation of women.  

Identifying Islam with jihad offends some non Muslims within American government and media. 

It does not, however, offend the Iranian leaders, nor the Ayatollah, who are not shy about declaring who is their enemy.

How do the leaders in this country continue to ignore this??? In the context of your article, Obama is a "external" muslim at the very least. Wow.

You all are over estimating nukes- there are not enough to 'flatten' the world. They can cause death and destruction,yes, in the area of a few mile radius. Here is the proof- there have been hundreds of tests in the past plus the 2 bombs dropped on cities. The world is not destroyed...
If the president you hate gave Iran every one we have, they still could not destroy the US. They could damage cities or corn fields or rivers or dams, but not the whole country.

In our religion, we have nothing like the religion of minimums.

In many cases, the Holy Quran has blamed us for our satisfaction with some religious teachings minus others: "Those who have made Quran into shreds"

[The Holy Quran, 15: 91] and "Those who wish to separate Allah from His messengers, saying: ‘We believe in some but reject others'"

[The Holy Quran, 4: 150]. The latter is related to hypocrites. It is not even enough to be satisfied with very important religious concepts such as administering justice.

The latter s related to hypocrites. It is not even enough to be satisfied with religious concepts such as administering justice.

Not satisfied or administering justice -the video below dated 3/19/2015 filmed by witness

Extremely graphic * non confirmed* -the accusation was enough ? woman was accused to have burned the Quran, she beaten by countless men savagely, then set on fire. In the name of Islam?

You all are over estimating nukes- there are not enough to 'flatten' the world. They can cause death and destruction,yes, in the area of a few mile radius. Here is the proof- there have been hundreds of tests in the past plus the 2 bombs dropped on cities. The world is not destroyed...
If the president you hate gave Iran every one we have, they still could not destroy the US. They could damage cities or corn fields or rivers or dams, but not the whole country.

How do you know the limitation of nuclear warheads?

Since a single city was destroyed in 1945, and just a few years later, in the early 50's, detonation of nuclear bombs were many times larger, and science has made tremendous strives in the last 60+ years, how powerful is this weapon?

I don't know.

I do know that the Khamenei's statement about "know how" and the ideology of Islam being fatalistic, is about the worst combination possible.

As one commentator said, she was glad when there was "talking."

I agree.

By their words, we know them.

The Koran teaches subjugation of the world by force. The hatred of Israel is pathological.

the most oil rich nation on the earth wants a nuclear facility for peaceful reasons?

It is not credible.

That they are the enemy of the US is in words and in decades of deeds.

We put Israel, our own ally in the region, alone in having to use jet fighters to take out that facility.

I believe the words.

TxTchr,

I think that they, according to their language, do view him as you said: "external" or "minimal" Muslim.

Muslims, even secular ones, cannot condemn jihad. It is to speak against the Koran. This is why they may be against the violence, but remain silent.

here is an article to sum things up for all of us who are concerned:

First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and nationalizes the Internet.

He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican “enemies.” He abandons our ­allies, appeases tyrants, coddles ­adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast.

Now he’s coming for Israel.

Barack Obama’s promise to transform America was too modest. He is transforming the whole world before our eyes. Do you see it yet?

Against the backdrop of the tsunami of trouble he has unleashed, Obama’s pledge to “reassess” America’s relationship with Israel cannot be taken lightly. Already paving the way for an Iranian nuke, he is hinting he’ll also let the other anti-Semites at Turtle Bay have their way. That could mean American support for punitive Security Council resolutions or for Palestinian statehood initiatives. It could mean both, or something worse.

Whatever form the punishment takes, it will aim to teach Bibi Netanyahu never again to upstage him. And to teach Israeli voters never again to elect somebody Obama doesn’t like.

Apologists and wishful thinkers, including some Jews, insist Obama real­izes that the special relationship between Israel and the United States must prevail and that allowing too much daylight between friends will encourage enemies.

Those people are slow learners, or, more dangerously, deny-ists.

If Obama’s six years in office teach us anything, it is that he is impervious to appeals to good sense. Quite the contrary. Even respectful suggestions from supporters that he behave in the traditions of American presidents fill him with angry determination to do it his way.

For Israel, the consequences will be intended. Those who make excuses for Obama’s policy failures — naive, bad advice, bad luck — have not come to grips with his dark impulses and deep-seated rage.

His visceral dislike for Netanyahu is genuine, but also serves as a convenient fig leaf for his visceral dislike of Israel. The fact that it’s personal with Netanyahu doesn’t explain six years of trying to bully Israelis into signing a suicide pact with Muslims bent on destroying them. Netanyahu’s only sin is that he puts his nation’s security first and refuses to knuckle ­under to Obama’s endless demands for unilateral concessions.

That refusal is now the excuse to act against Israel. Consider that, for all the upheaval around the world, the president rarely has a cross word for, let alone an open dispute with, any other foreign leader. He calls Great Britain’s David Cameron “bro” and praised Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Morsi, who had called Zionists, “the descendants of apes and pigs.”

Most troubling is Obama’s bended-knee deference to Iran’s Supreme Leader, which has been repaid with “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” demonstrations in Tehran and expanded Iranian military action in other countries.

The courtship reached the height of absurdity last week, when Obama wished Iranians a happy Persian new year by equating Republican critics of his nuclear deal with the resistance of theocratic hard-liners, saying both “oppose a diplomatic solution.” That is a damnable slur given that a top American military official estimates that Iranian weapons, proxies and trainers killed 1,500 US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Who in their right mind would trust such an evil regime with a nuke?

Even if Obama senses danger, his pride and arrogance won't allow him to back down. There won't be any "lame" in this duck for sure!

As a Christian, I see this situation as a possible precursor to the end of times. Revelation talks about the Jews returning to the Holy Land. If Israel is forced to defend itself, I believe many Jews will leave the countries they live in now and return to fight for Israel. It's exciting but at the same time terrifying.

This is a FASTINATING article written by Johnnie Moore. Mr. Moore likens the executions of Christians in the Middle East to a "Christian Holocaust".
