No power can persist based on coercion, interference, domination

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the power of the United States is in decline, warning that a power based on domination and interference in other countries’ affairs will not persist.
RNA – Ayatollah Khamenei’s remarks were published in several posts on his official Twitter accounts in English and French on Monday, marking the anniversary of the conviction of the deceased French philosopher Roger Garaudy at a court in Paris for questioning the Holocaust.

Garaudy was a French philosopher, resistance fighter and a prominent author who was convicted and fined in 1998 for Holocaust denial under French law.

In his book, The Founding Myths of Modern Israel, Garaudy asserted that the allegation about “six million” Jews having been perished through the Holocaust was a myth, prompting the French judicial system to ban any further publication of his book and fining him 240,000 French francs on February 27, 1998.

“#RogerGaraudy has an accurate and precise prediction about the U.S. regime, which we confirm, too,” the Leader said in his tweet.

“We also believe that the US is declining. A power built on the basis of coercion, interference in other countries’ affairs and domination over other nations won’t persist.”

Ayatollah Khamenei also took a jab at the Western countries’ claims to being advocates of freedom of speech by bringing up Garaudy’s case, who was also given a suspended prison term of several years for denying the Holocaust.

The Leader noted that in response to Garaudy’s academic criticism of the Holocaust, instead of giving convincing answers or allowing unbiased research, “the French govt. not only banned his book, but also brought Garaudy to trial.”

“These are the claimants of advocating #FreedomOfSpeech,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Bravery and tirelessness of Roger #Garaudy in the work he initiated is praiseworthy. The fight he engaged in against the Zionists is a #DivineDuty for all those who respect the #Truth.
