Khamenei in Qom

Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei arrived today in the holy city of Qom. Addressing a public rally in the city, Khamenei said the internal enemies of the Islamic Republic want an Islam without clergymen, and a non-political Islam altogether. He also accused the opposition of sowing “the seed of pessimism” in the Iranian society.

Without naming names, Khamenei also accused opposition leaders of “spreading rumors” about the leadership and its achievements. “Such moves are not in line with the interests of the country's future,” he said.

On the issue of economic sanctions, Khamenei said the West wanted to exert pressure on the society by these sanction to cause people to lose faith in their leadership. But he declared that the sanctions would have no impact whatsoever on the country. “Today, Iranians are moving towards a bright future with more progress and will thwart enemies' plots," Khamenei added.
