The cleric Shiite added that, the Islamic resistance groups, specially Hezbollah, Badr Corps, and Hamas have not forgotten the supports of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the past. He added, Ayatollah Khamenei is the leader of Shiite people in the world, and Lebanese fighters are ready to defend Islamic Republic of Iran.

He added that just as Islamic Iran defends the rights of the Palestinians, Hamas will defend the rights of Islamic Iran.

Analyst Comments: So far the west have been trying to contain the Iranian nuclear activities, but have done not enough to stop spread of Iran’s extremes Ayatollah’s terrorist ideologies such as Khamenei, Janati, Kashani, Mesabah Yazdi, around the world. The Iranian authorities strongly believe that Iran is carrying the flag of the Islamic movement resistance around the world.

On January 7, 06 - Tens of thousands of Hajj pilgrims shouted Saturday "Down with US", "Down with Israel" in the Masjed el-Haram (the sacred realm around Ka'ba) in the holy city of Mecca. Hajj pilgrims were conducting ritual ceremonies when they unexpectedly chanted slogans, including "Allah-o Akbar" (God is beyond description) and "There is no God but Allah" in the holy mosque. The pilgrims expressed their hatred to the tyrant powers and occupiers of the Islamic countries.

Mecca, January 7, 06 The Supreme Leader's representative for Haj Affairs, Hojatoleslam Mohammad Mohammadi Reyshahri, said that the prestige achieved by the Lebanese Hezbollah has come as a result of Jihad, resistance and obedience to Imam Khomeini's calling and that of his rightful successor. Reyshahri made the remark at a meeting with the head of the Lebanese Hezbollah's representative office in Mecca, Sheikh Mohammad Yazbok.

On November 28, 05- Mohammad-Ali Samadi, the spokesman for a government-orchestrated campaign to recruit suicide bombers said, Lebanon’s Hezbollah group studied suicide operation tactics from Iran.

On July 25, 05- Iranian TV, Channel One, Ahmadinejad said we want art that is on the offensive. Art on the offensive exalts and defends the noble principles, and attacks principles that are corrupt, vulgar, ungodly, and inhuman. Art reaches perfection when it portrays the best life and the best death. After all, art tells you how to live, and this is the essence of Art. Are there art that is more beautiful more divine, and more eternal than the art of martyrdom? A nation with martyrdom knows no captivity. Those who wish to undermine this principle, undermine the foundations of our independence and national security. They undermine the foundation of our eternity. The message of the (Islamic) Revolution is global, and is not restricted to specific place or time. It is a human message and it will move forward. Have no doubt, Allah willing, Islam will conquer all the mountains tops of the world.

On January 2004, when I was working in Baghdad, I sent out a report called Nature of Modern Martyrdom: Culture of Terror and Fanaticism, and clearly explained the Iran’s involvement in cultivation of suicide bombing in the Middle East. In that report, I said “The Iranian regime has not exported their revolution yet, but it definitely has exported the culture of martyrdom throughout the Middle East. The fact is that before the Islamic Revolution, there was no such a deadly culture in the Middle East. The culture of suicide bombing was started after the establishment of the Islamic Republic in Iran.”
