We must not be content to negotiate with the Europeans

Ayatollah Sa’idi ‎stated that the Islamic Resistance is moving forward and emphasized, ‎‎“Everything that the Islamic Republic of Iran has achieved so far is due to the blessing of the ‎Islamic Resistance and will continue.”‎
RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers at ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Qom’s Qods Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad Sa’idi referred to the Hajj pilgrimage, ‎which begins on August 9th, and said, “We pray to God for all those who are on the Hajj ‎pilgrimage to have the grace to perform the correct and acceptable rituals of the Hajj and ‎we hope that they will return home with an acceptable Hajj.”‎

The custodian of the Holy Shrine of Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah‎ ‎commemorated the ‎Resistance Day, which celebrates Hezbollah’s defeat of the Israeli regime the 33-Day War in ‎‎2006 and said, “On this day, Hezbollah defeated the Zionists in the 33-Day War through the ‎grace of God and the special favour of Lady Fatimah al-Zahra and pushed them back.” ‎

He noted the importance of resistance in Islam, adding, “Resistance in the Holy Quran is ‎more than a word or a term and resistance isn’t limited to a dream on the battlefield but ‎rather it includes any kind of struggle against those elements which disturb balance and ‎equilibrium.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Sa’idi ‎continued, “From the beginning until now, the Islamic Revolution and the ‎religious system arising from it, has moved forward with divine dignity and power and with its ‎young and elite manpower, they have overcome the acts of sedition, conspiracies and evil ‎plans of the global arrogant front and their mercenary and internal agents.” ‎

The representative of the Supreme Leader in ‎Qom ‎stated, “Although the pressure, hostility ‎and conspiracies against the Islamic Revolution have intensified, the strength and ‎development of the Islamic Republic has increased in various arenas. The Americans ‎assumed, within the framework of the JCPOA nuclear deal and through negotiating, that they ‎can put the Islamic Republic on the path of surrender, compromise and the renunciation of ‎resistance, but the vigilance of the wise Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution eroded ‎the evil plans of the Americans and their allies.”‎

He said, “After that, the Americans drew up another plan, and with their departure from the ‎JCPOA, they embarked on a strategy of intensifying sanctions and crises in Iran to overthrow ‎the Islamic Republic. At this time, the division of work was done between the United States ‎and several European countries in order that with the withdrawal of the United States from ‎the JPCOA, the Europeans could enter the scene and by imposing pressures and pushing ‎Iran to the negotiating table, they could gain greater concessions on scarce economic aid.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Sa’idi ‎continued, saying, “At the same time, the United States insisted on ‎negotiating with Iran but the Supreme Leader considered negotiating with the United States ‎as poison and announced negotiating with the United States as strictly prohibited. It was ‎here that the United States lost hope in negotiating with Iran. They acted foolishly by ‎sanctioning Mohammad-Javad Zarif, the Foreign Affairs Minister of Iran, because Americans ‎assumed that Mr. Zarif’s importance was due to his presence in the negotiations and when ‎there were no negotiations, his position wasn’t required.”‎
‎ ‎
He added, “With the experience gained from negotiating with the deceitful United States, we ‎hope that the diplomatic apparatus of the Islamic Republic of Iran won’t be content to ‎negotiate with the cunning Europeans because the Europeans have admitted themselves that ‎they are united in opinion with the United States in dealing with the Islamic Republic of Iran. ‎Everything we have achieved is in the light of resistance and we will continue this path to the ‎end, with the grace of God.”‎
