Iranian officials in charge of planning cultural excursions to the country’s border areas that used to be war zones during the Iraqi imposed war on Iran in the 1980s met with Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Monday, March 17.
During the meeting, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “Hegemonic powers try to obliterate major historic events from the memory of world nations using two tricks of forgetfulness and distortion.”?
The Supreme Leader referred to the forceful evacuation of the Palestinians from their homeland by Zionists and the bravery of the Iranian forces during the eight years of Iraq’s imposed war (1980-88) as two major contemporary historic events.
“Any historic event can be damaged by two major elements of forgetfulness and distortion. The world’s arrogant powers are bent on making world public opinion gradually forget how the Palestinians were forced to leave their cities and villages in an unprecedented plot.”?
“Using the element of forgetfulness, the hegemonic system is trying to make the issue of Palestine be gradually disappeared and forgotten from the memory of world nations,”? said the Supreme Leader.
Ayatollah Khamenei added “despite arrogant powers’ conspiracies in the past years, the cause of Palestine has been kept alive thanks to the Islamic Revolution and sincere support of the late Imam Khomeini.”?
The Supreme Leader urged elites and scholars to prevent hegemonic powers from erasing the memory of world nations.
The Leader further warned that like the issue of Palestine, the arrogant powers are trying to marginalize the issue of Sacred Defense made by the Iranian people during eight years of Iraqi imposed war on the country in the 1980s.
“We should not allow the great event of Sacred Defense to be forgotten,”? the leader stressed.
Ayatollah Khamenei also underlined the significance of the Sacred Defense, saying that the Iranian defense against the Iraqi invasion is like a “great and glorious picture”? with deep and wonderful aspects.
In Iran, the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war is known as the Sacred Defense, and Sacred Defense Week is held on the anniversary of the beginning of the war.
Sacred Defense Week begins on Shahrivar 31 in the Iranian calendar (September 22 this year), which is the day Iraq invaded Iran and began the imposed war on the country in 1980.
