From Khamenei’s wbsite:
Ayatollah Khamenei, the Commander-in-Chief of the Iranian Armed Forces, attended the graduation ceremony of cadets at Imam Hussein (a.s.) University on Wednesday morning. Speaking at the meeting, which was held on the occasion of the anniversary of the liberation of Khoramshahr on May 24, 1983, His Eminence described building religious, committed, revolutionary, knowledgeable and skilled youth at Imam Hussein (a.s.) University, as a clear example of the fruits of the Islamic Revolution.
Referring to the resistance of the people of Iran against arrogance and the division of the world into the oppressor and the oppressed, He stated: “Today, the camp of arrogance is extremely angry at the achievements of the people of Iran and the Islamic Republic which have been made without the assistance of America and western powers and by relying on domestic capacities and capabilities. In response to their anger, we would like to repeat the well-known statement by Shahid Beheshti: ‘Go and die of anger.'”
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution emphasized that Islam is the only way to save humanity – which has suffered from different events over the course of many centuries – and the only path for achieving true dignity. He reiterated: “Religious and committed youth are the builders of the future of the country and they are the main elements for creating the new Islamic civilization.”
Pointing to the different challenges that the Islamic Republic is faced with, Ayatollah Khamenei said: “The existence of a challenge never worries wise, well-informed and courageous individuals. Rather, it focuses their efforts on domestic and untapped capacities.”
