Qom Friday Prayer Leader:‎
Rasa – Ayatollah Arafi said that one of the goals pursued by international treaties is to ‎change and assimilate others’ cultures into their culture and undermine their ‎independence and greatness of the nations. We must intelligently and courageously ‎deal with international treaties.‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers at Qom’s ‎Qods ‎Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Alireza Arafi referred to the upcoming fortieth anniversary ‎of the Islamic Revolution and said, “Today, the enemies are trying to empty the hearts ‎of the people and separate the people from the Islamic Revolution from all sides and in ‎this regard, all of the arrogant powers resort to physical and virtual means to destroy ‎the great heritage of the Iranian people.”‎

The head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran ‎said, “Referring to the great achievements of ‎the nation in the Islamic Revolution doesn’t mean that today we have no problems and ‎that the officials are faultless. Today, in various fields, especially in regard to the ‎livelihood problems of the people, we face serious weaknesses and these weaknesses ‎must be resolved and we must not allow these weaknesses to distance them from the ‎magnitude of the Islamic Revolution.”‎

He stated that the main shareholder of the Revolution is the youth and people of Iran ‎who are from all walks and said, “The Iranian people have had a stunning presence in ‎all fields over the past forty years.”‎

Ayatollah Arafi referred to some of the great achievements of the Revolution and ‎added, “If we set aside all the Islamic and religious logic and establish the indicators of ‎growth and development that are commonly known in the world as our criterion, we ‎still have made huge achievements in health, science, industry, infrastructure, medicine, ‎roads, housing, agriculture, media, defence industries and other fields.”‎

The member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom considered the creation of the ‎modern civilization of the Revolution as its highest achievement and continued, “The ‎Islamic Revolution and the Iranian nation brought a new message to the world. Due to ‎the blessings of the Revolution and to divine grace, the cornerstones of a modern ‎civilization must be founded for humanity today. The West doesn’t have the potential ‎for development, if we take this issue into consideration, forty years is as much as one ‎year.”‎

He emphasized that we must stand up against the problems with a revolutionary spirit ‎and jihad and said, “Due to the grace of God, the Islamic Revolution is continuing its ‎work with greater power after forty years and on the day of 22nd of Bahman [February ‎‎11th], this glory will become more manifest and millions of lovers of the Revolution, ‎Islam and the country will be on the scene and all of the illusions of Donald Trump and ‎his mercenaries will be shattered.”‎

Ayatollah Arafi ‎referred to the recent remarks by the sources of emulation on the issues ‎of culture, politics and economics and said, “The sources of emulation and sympathizers ‎stressed that the officials are expected to pay attention. In the fields of culture, chastity ‎and hijab, important remarks were given to the officials. Although corrections were ‎made, it’s expected that the policies of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution ‎‎[Ayatollah Khamenei] and the sources of emulation in regard to cultural affairs aren’t ‎neglected by the administration and the officials.”‎

He added, “Just as the Supreme Leader said, there may be seemingly worthwhile ‎international treaties, but one must understand that one of the goals pursued by ‎international treaties is to change and assimilate others’ cultures into their culture and ‎undermine their independence and greatness of the nations. We must intelligently and ‎courageously deal with international treaties.”‎

Emphasizing that attachment to foreigners and enemies doesn’t achieve anything, the ‎member of the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution said, “The case of the JCPOA ‎demonstrated that the enemies and the West cannot be trusted. For many months, the ‎Europeans have made empty promises with complete audacity but they don’t act on ‎their promises and the revolutionary patience of the nation and the officials of the ‎country will be too high.”‎

Referring to the United States’ plots in Venezuela, Ayatollah Arafi said, “The Americans ‎are those who have illegally intervened in Venezuela and have stood against the ‎legitimate government of this country. Americans are those who have imposed cruel ‎sanctions and want to hold a conference against the Iranian nation in Poland.”‎

His Eminence said, “It was the Americans who illegally arrested the Press TV journalist ‎‎[Marzieh Hashemi]. This is a chain of the treachery of the United States. Can we reach ‎out to negotiate and sign agreements with them, relying on dear Islam and the jihadi ‎and revolutionary spirit? With the grace of God, we will stand up against the enemies ‎and bring the Revolution to the height of glory.”‎
