Iranian Supreme Leader: Arab Spring Means More Islamist Governments

From the Tehran Times:

TEHRAN – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said that the United States and the Zionist regime are fearful of the fact that the Islamic system of Iran is serving as a model for the popular movements in the region.

The Leader made the remarks on Monday in a meeting with a large number of IRGC commanders and officials.

“The U.S. and the Zionist regime are frightened of the fact that the Islamic system has become a model for the regional people,” he stated.

“They cannot change the realities on the ground no matter how they try to deny this fact and the Islamic orientation of regional people through their propaganda machine and media outlets,” he stated.

The Leader described the ongoing developments in the region and the world as unprecedented and said people with “monotheistic and divine” orientations have entered the scene and turned a new page in history.

He added that the new wave of Islamic awakening which began in the region will reach extra-regional countries in the near future.
