Putin: Russia in no position to urge Iran to leave Syria.
Khamenei: For the academics, the way to combat Domineering system's tricks is to strengthen national identity and idealism among them. Our young elites should take pride in being Iranian, being Muslim, in their outstanding national identity, ideals and history.
Khamenei: The enemy seeks to exclusively possess science andwealth-producing, power-producing knowledge; hence they assassinate nation's scientists. This didn't occur only to Iran. When US dominated over Iraq, it identifiedandkilled 10s of scientists so that Iraq wouldn't develop after Saddam.
Khamenei: Human Resources make a great treasure and wealth that enemy seeks to grab away from the country. Among arrogant powers' methods to so are physical removal of scientific elites, culturally deviating them or making them busy with irrelevant affairs.
Chief of IRGC's ground forces Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour has threatened to launch a military operation on Pakistan soil.
Khamenei: The reason behind country's scientific, moral and political backwardness during that dark era was incompetent, avaricious, dependent and inept rulers who were arrogant towards the nation and didn't care for people's welfares, yet bowed down before foreigners.
Khamenei: Since 1935, when the first university was built in Iran, till 44 years onwards—in 1979, Iran had a total of 150k university students but today we have over 4 million university students. One should be thankful to the Islamic Republic for this great move.
Khamenei: During the Qajar and Pahlavi eras, Iran was among the most backward countries in up-to-date knowledge. Our share of science production during Pahlavis hardly made 1/10 of a percent, but today Islamic Republic of Iran's share has increased to about 2%. We shouldn't stop there.
@TWITTER just published the full dataset of tweets from the Russian and Iranian troll farms. 9 million Russian tweets. 1 million Iranian tweets.
Khamenei: It is necessary to have scientific ties with nations that are progressing rapidly. These countries are mainly in Asia; hence, we should look to the East not the West. Likewise, to look to the West and Europe lead to nothings but lagging behind, begging them and being humiliated.
Khamenei: Today the enemies' fierce propaganda, media war resembles the US-backed Saddam war on Iran. Our media facilities are also as limited as were our equipment during the war. But just as we gained victory then, by God's Grace, we will certainly gain victory in this war too.
Khamenei: Having 10s of thousands of academic elites is an indicator of the correct and true image of Iran and a source of happiness and hope; yet, enjoying from academia's potentials should certainly be promoted and their viewpoints should be applied to the country's planning framework.
Khamenei: Making up a wrong, negative and disappointing image of the situation in Iran is on top of enemies' agenda. However, with the Grace of God, the true image of the country is generally the exact opposite of what the Front of Arrogance depicts.
