Dr. Jamileh Alamolhoda, the wife of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, said in a January 23, 2023 interview on Mayadeen TV (Lebanon) that that the basis for military resistance is a resistance "culture" and that there can be no martyrs in Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq or elsewhere without the wives and mothers who prepare their husbands and sons for martyrdom.
Dr. Jamileh Alamolhoda: "The culture of resistance against the culture of hegemony — or rather, the cultural hegemony that America wants to impose on other cultures — manifests itself in the countries of the resistance [axis] and is encountering a cultural resistance. People usually look at resistance in the military field, although the basis for military resistance is cultural resistance.
"In other words, if we have martyrs, and if we carry out martyrdom operations in Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq, and elsewhere, the main support for these operations is the culture of resistance of the wives and mothers. If a wife is not ready to prepare her husband for martyrdom, and if a mother does not want this, and does not sow the resistance sentiment in the makeup of that martyr, he will not be able to do this."
