Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei warned of a planned, extensive war launched by arrogant systems and aimed at manipulating the Islamic Republic's path.
The most important goal of such a complicated war is to manipulate the Iranian nation’s beliefs, the Leader said in a meeting with President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) Mohammad Sarafraz and its managers and officials in Tehran on Monday.
“The main goal of this well-thought-out and pre-planned war is to transmute the Islamic Republic of Iran, and change its essence and nature while maintaining its appearance” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Leader also added that Iran’s national radio and TV has a unique role to play in this “serious battlefield” and should draw up “precise and wise” plans to fulfill its duties.
The enemy’s soft war is aimed at having Iran serve the interests of the US, Zionists and the global network of powers, the Leader added.
The main targets of soft war are the officials and people, especially the elite, academics and university students, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
“They (the enemy) seek to influence the people and a wide range of their beliefs, especially [among] the youth and elite,” said the Leader, adding, “The people’s religious, political and cultural beliefs are among these beliefs.”
Another objective of the enemy’s soft war is to get people to change their beliefs about the past, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
“Our people have some beliefs about the former corrupt and authoritarian regimes, and in the soft war efforts are made to depict this ugly, wicked and black past to a brilliant and beautiful one,” said the Leader.
