On February 9, 2022, on the eve of the 43rd anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Ahmad Hossein Falahi, chairman of the Iranian Majlis Faction Supporting The Resistance Axis And The Liberation Of Jerusalem spoke at a media event on "The Islamic Revolution and Solidifying a New Regional Order." The event was held by the Association to Defend the Palestinian Nation.

In his speech, Falahi emphasized that the regime of Islamic Revolution in Iran is a universally applicable government model. In the 43 years of its existence, he added, the revolution and its tenets have spread and taken root in the region. He explained the vision of the Islamic Revolution: the annihilation of the State of Israel – a precondition for the arrival of the Mahdi, the Shi'ite Messiah, and for the establishment of universal Islamic rule.

Falahi emphasized that Iran and its revolutionary ideals are the guiding light for the liberation of the Palestinians, dismissing the struggle against Israel waged by the Palestinian nationalist movement in the 1960s and 70s, and saying that the Iranian revolution plays "an important role in the development of resistance groups and the spirit of jihad in the region."

The following are the main points of his speech:

"The Islamic Revolution is global in nature, and is not limited to one country [Iran]. The Islamic Revolution and its philosophy have flooded [past] its borders, and other nations have accepted that they can live with dignity with the Islamic Revolution and its freedom-seeking thought. Exporting the Islamic Revolution means that the philosophy of the Islamic Revolution is spreading to different arenas and different countries, and that the identity of other nations [in the region] are based on the ideas of the Islamic Revolution.

"One place [for which Iran's] Islamic Revolution was the inspiration was the Palestinian people – a nation occupied by the Zionist regime for many years. The liberation movement of the Palestinian people was formed in the years following the [1979] victory of the Islamic Revolution, and was inspired by its concepts and ideals. In fact, the Islamic Revolution played an important role in the development of resistance groups and the spirit of jihad in the region. Even in the earliest days of the Islamic Revolution, Iran shut down the embassy of the Zionist regime in Tehran, replacing it with a Palestinian Embassy. Several other countries were inspired by the Islamic Revolution movement, and implemented it. Today, many nations and even governments oppose the Zionist regime.

"One of the main goals of the Islamic Revolution has always been the annihilation and destruction of the Zionist regime. Today, all those who believe in the Islamic Revolution and in the arrival of the Mahdi  is certainly thinking of the annihilation and elimination of the Zionist regime. In fact, no one can talk about Mahdism and the arrival of the Mahdi without thinking about the issue [of the annihilation of Israel], because [as far as the revolution is concerned,] the annihilation of the Zionist regime is one of the preconditions for the arrival of the Messiah.

"The resistance and steadfastness based on the ideas of the Islamic Revolution are planted deep in the souls of the nations, and the enemies cannot eliminate this movement created in the region by oppressing these nations.

"The Palestinian people now produces, on its own soil, weapons against the Zionist regime, standing fast in the face of that regime's aggression. Today, that regime can no longer act on its ambition to expand as it once did, and the Zionist regime elements have lost their tranquility thanks to the [Islamic] resistance movement [led by Iran] and the steadfastness of the Palestinian people. This is because some [of the Zionist regime elements] are now forced to hold their meetings in bomb shelters. These are all warnings to anyone who supported and continues to support this regime.

"This [Zionist] regime and its elements, who every so often threaten [Iran], should know that the resistance and the peoples that support it are only waiting for a pretext to eliminate this regime from the annals of history, and to save, once and for all, the nations of the region from this cancerous growth."[1]
