Iran on Sunday marked the 34th anniversary of its Islamic revolution with a show of defiance towards the United States, predictions of Israel’s eradication, and fresh attempts to take credit for the so-called “Arab spring.”
February 10 marks the culmination of what Iran calls the “Ten Day Dawn” – the 10 days in 1979 between Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s return from exile and the fall of the U.S.-backed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. [...]
“The revolution which Imam Khomeini had dubbed as the Explosion of Light, has indeed triggered the Islamic Awakening,” the paper said.
“Without the least doubt, the wave of Islamic Awakening that is sweeping the Arab world, inspired by the historic events in Iran over three decades ago, seems all poised to make more heads roll this year, following the ouster of four notorious dictators in the past two years,” it said, in reference to the toppled leaders of Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen.
“Insha Allah [Allah willing], very soon, the illegal Zionist entity will be removed from the map of Palestine,” it added. That would sound “the death knell for the cowardly compromisers including the unelected, unpopular, and oppressive Arab regimes of the Persian Gulf which are at the end of their wits.”
