"The Americans are sad about the rise of a powerful and great Iran in the region and today, the security established in Iran due to the glorious Islamic Revolution is not seen in any place in the Middle-East, and the Americans are well aware of this fact," Jahangiri said in the Southern city of Shiraz on Monday, addressing the annual nationwide February 11th rallies marking the 40th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
He noted that the Americans have clearly declared full-scale economic war against Iran, and said they also raise terrorism allegations against the country, while some of those who provide advice to the White House have assassinated the Iranian scientists and officials after the Islamic Revolution.
The VP reminded the US threat to zero down Iran's crude supplies as well as embargos on exports to Iran, and said "despite all these sanctions and problems, Iranians will remain on the stage and these are the Americans who will be forced to leave the scene."
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 sum of 6,500 Iranian and foreign journalists, reporters and photographers covered the Bahman 22 (February 11) rallies this year.
In Tehran, demonstrators then congregated at the Azadi Square, Tehran's main square and the site of major national rallies over the past four decades.
The nationwide rallies also prove to the world that the brave Iranian nation is fully ready to resist and challenge the enemies of the Islamic Republic.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei had in December warned the Iranian nation to remain vigilant against new US plots for the next year, saying that Washington might have made done the propaganda this year, but be readying to stage the main part of its plot in 2019.
"Earlier this year, the US claimed that Iran was to have a hard summer and that the revolution wouldn’t see its 40th anniversary. To their dismay, this summer was one of the best summers; and the Iranian nation will magnificently celebrate the 40th anniversary of the revolution on 22nd of Bahman (February 11)," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing the family members of the Islamic Revolution's martyrs in Tehran.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution of Iran called for the Iranian nation to keep vigilant in the face of deceits by the US, saying, "The Iranian nation should maintain their awareness. When the US says in 2018 they will do this or that, it could be a deceitful plot. They might want to stir controversy in 2018 while their actual plots are for 2019. You should be completely ready and alerted."
Ayatollah Khamenei described the US as a vicious enemy, and said, "The US is a wicked enemy, united with the Zionists and the reactionary regimes of the region. We are of course stronger and until now they have been unable to do a thing, and they won't be able to anything in the future."
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 40 years ago, people took to the streets to celebrate the collapse of the Pahlavi Dynasty and the emergence of the new era.
