On Sunday 18 February, in fear of the nationwide uprising and anger and hatred of the frustrated people, Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the falling regime of mullahs, made a late confession to injustice in the mullahs’ regime, and said: “We are completely aware of the people’s criticisms, and their complaints; We have been told; others have been told too and these words are conveyed to us…. When we say they could criticize, it doesn’t mean that they only criticize the government or the judiciary or the parliament; no, somebody may also criticize this humble person (me) too.” He added, “We are retarded in justice, there is no doubt about it; we acknowledge, and we admit… Regarding the justice, we should try hard, we should work, and we should apologize to the Almighty God and the dear people. We have problems in justice.”
Khamenei’s apology merely reminds the Shah’s message in November 1978, two months before he fled Iran, when he said: “I heard the message of your revolution.” Khamenei’s words are also delirium of the regime’s collapse. He is making this apology at a time when his crimes have not diminished whatsoever, and every day there is news about the killing under torture by the mullahs’ regime’s henchmen of those who were arrested in the uprising. Khamenei is the greatest thief in Iran’s history and the great killer of Iranian people. He and other leaders of the regime have done nothing over the past four decades but robbery, mass executions, massacres and torture.
At the same time, Khamenei once again admitted that any reform and modification within this regime or its constitution is absolutely a mirage and would lead to the overthrow of the regime. “The administration of the country is respected, the constitution is respected, the constitution must be respected; this structure must be respected; (so must be) all the principles of the constitution … the revolution, that is, the revolutionary system, this Islamic system,” he said.
In the course of the January heroic uprising, the Iranian people gave their response to this late remorse with the slogans of “death to the principle of Velayat-e-Faqih” and “Down with the mullahs’ rule”. With this foolish tactic, he will not be able to rescue his broken and totally corrupt system from overthrow. Iran’s youth are determined to cleanse the occupied Iran from the existence of the regime of killers and looters forever.
