Thousands of people from several Iranian provinces, including those with various ethnic backgrounds, met with Ayatollah Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution today, August 1, 2016, at the Hussainiyah of Imam Khomeini.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution divulged in Saudi Arabia’s attempts, which are meant to normalize relations with the Zionist regime. He described this attempt as a stab in the Islamic Ummah’s back, saying “The move, by the Saudis, is an immense sin and treason, but the U.S. has a share in this major transgression, since the Saudi government obeys the U.S., is controlled by them, and looks up to their word of mouth.”

On June 4, 1989 AD, the Father of Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (RA) passed away at the age of 87. Following the announcement this report, world Muslims and conscientious people throughout the globe, mourned for the Sage of the Age, who had not just transformed Iran into a powerful independent country, but by inspiring the people to overthrow the British-installed and American-supported Pahlavi regime, also shattered big power equations in Iran and the region.
