Rouhani: Enemies’ Threats Childish, Worthless

Politics - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani played down enemies’ threats against Iran, reiterating that the nation cannot be intimidated by the threat of increasing sanctions.

“Threats against Iran are worthless and childish,” President Rouhani said addressing millions of Iranians participating in the rallies of Bahman 22 (February 11) marking the 35th Anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

The Iranian president said that Iranians are not afraid of the sanctions imposed by the West against Tehran.

“Unity and resistance against foreign colonialism made the Iranian nation victorious,” President Rouhani said.

He underlined the Iranian people have played a very active role on different occasions, mainly during and after the 8-year war and in the nuclear case.

“Our revolution did not rely on any foreign power; no country, no superpower and no power --even when a bipolar system governed the world those eras – could help a foreign country triumph over us,” President Rouhani said.

Millions of Iranians in Tehran and other cities throughout the country poured to the streets on Tuesday to show their unconditional support for the Islamic Republic through staging massive rallies on February 11th, marking the 35th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

Huge masses of people from all walks of life converged on streets and squares all over the country to express their support for the cause and ideals of the Islamic Revolution.

A large number of foreign reporters covered the Bahman 22 rallies.

In Tehran, demonstrators then congregated at the Azadi Square, Tehran's main square and the site of major national rallies over the past three decades.

The nationwide rallies also prove to the world that the brave Iranian nation is fully ready to resist and challenge the enemies of Islam and the Islamic Republic.

Led by the Founder of the Revolution, Imam Khomeini, Iranians confronted the forces of US-proxy Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi in late 1977 to end his oppressive, cruel and autocratic rule over the country.

By December 1978, millions of Iranians would take to the streets in protest against the policies of the Shah on a regular basis.

Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned from exile to Iran to be received by millions of cheering crowds after the departure of the Shah in mid-January 1979. Two weeks later, the country saw the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

The final collapse of the Shah's regime came on February 11 when the military renounced its loyalty to the Shah and joined the revolutionary forces.

On this day 35 years ago, people took to the streets to celebrate the collapse of the Pahlavi Dynasty and the emergence of the new era.
