For those who believe that negotiations with the Iranian Regime are possible, might want to know that Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has made it abundantly clear again that the Iranian Regime will continue to wage war against the enemy. “Presently the fight against the enemy’s soft war is top priority,” he said.

Iran Daily has the story: Adversaries Out of Step

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution warned on Wednesday that hostile powers are trying to create a climate of conflict in Iran with their policy of discord and divisiveness. “Attempts to create an atmosphere of distrust and disunity in the country will benefit no one,” Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said in a meeting with the Basij (volunteer) forces in Tehran, Presstv reported. “Those who take their cue from the enemy and try to undermine the principles of the Islamic Republic and the Constitution should know that their efforts are in vain”.

He once again cautioned that opposition who question the validity of the June 12 elections, to see to it that they are not labeled as Monafeq (hypocrites). The term Monafeq in Iran is referred to the members of the banned Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) which masterminded a wave of terrorist attacks in Iran and Iraq in the past three decades. “Not all people are hypocrites or against the rule of the jurisprudent (Velayat-e Faqih),” Ayatollah Khamenei recalled.

National Vigilance

He stressed the importance of “national vigilance” to confront the soft war being waged by the enemy. “The enemy has placed soft war on its agenda because the arrogant powers failed in confronting the Islamic establishment during the first decade after the revolution.”

The Leader noted that “Presently the fight against the enemy’s soft war is top priority.” Elaborating the point he said “The enemy is trying to use a mixture of cultural tactics and advanced communication methods to spread lies and rumors and create doubts and differences among the people.”

As an example he referred to the post-election unrests and said “The enemy sought to drive a wedge between the people and the government…but failed, thanks to the vigilance and steadfastness of the people.”
