Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Blames Foreign “Enemies” For Protest In Country

The recent street protests in Iran have evoked the wrath of the country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

He has blamed the recent protests on what he regarded as foreign “enemies” seeking to overthrow the Islamic Republic.

He also accused the United States and its allies of waging a “psychological war” against his country.

“Today, the enemies’ most important hope for striking a blow at the country is based on popular protests,” Khamenei said.

“They hope to turn the people against the Islamic establishment and the Islamic Republic through psychological work, activities on the internet and cyberspace … and by spending money and recruiting mercenaries.”

“But the enemies’ calculation is as wrong as many earlier ones,” the Iranian leader said in a speech to mark the 33rd anniversary of the death of the leader of Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
