Today, after the movement of the great Islamic Revolution, the flag is in your hands. Which flag? The flag of the "New Islamic Discourse" which is useful and valuable for the happiness of human beings. Everyone should know this: Islamic discourse is valuable for all humans and for the entire humanity. This flag is available to today's youth. This new, attractive and magnetic discourse was created by the Islamic Revolution and with the leadership of our magnanimous Imam (r.a.). The Islamic Revolution offered this discourse and our intelligent, vigilant and appreciative people took it, placed great value on it and protected it until today. The sacrifice of the people of Iran - one of the manifestations of which was the Sacred Defense Era - managed to raise this flag in the present time.
Today, this flag and discourse is faced with "jahiliyya" discourse. Islamic discourse advocates justice, freedom of human beings and destruction of arrogant and colonialist elements. It advocates the destruction of global arrogance throughout the world. In other words, Islamic discourse does not want a system which is based on the oppressor and the oppressed to exist in the world. This is the discourse of the Islamic government. This is the same flag which is in your hands. At the opposite extreme, there is the discourse of oppression, bullying, arrogance and selfishness which is advocated by totalitarian and imperialist powers in the world. These powers are dependent on great economic cartels. They have always existed and they exist in the present time as well. In the past, they revealed their nature with visible and verbal shamelessness and impudence, but today they further their goals in a hypocritical way and by hiding themselves behind beautiful slogans such as human rights and hatred of violence.
Nonetheless, the sharp eyes of peoples can recognize them. They can
differentiate between these two discourses. These two discourses do not
make up with each other. They do not get close to each other and they
cannot be reconciled with each other. One discourse is the discourse of
oppression and hostility towards the oppressed and nations in general.
Another discourse is the discourse of supporting the oppressed and
confronting the oppressor. How can these two discourses shake hands? How
can they get close to each other? And today, the world knows and
