Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a September 18, 2019 address to an Iraqi delegation that aired on Channel 1 TV (Iran) that America and its lackeys, collaborators, and mercenaries have been conspiring against, threatening, and boycotting Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, but that Iran has nonetheless transformed "from a thin twig into a thick trunk with solid roots and branches in the sky." The audience chanted "Death to America," and Khamenei responded: "Allah willing, the slogans you chant against America, the Zionist regime, and the arrogant enemies will be realized in the not-so-distant future."

 

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: Forty years have passed since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution. [In that time,] America and its lackeys, collaborators, and mercenaries have been conspiring against the Islamic Republic. They have been acting [against], spending money, threatening, and boycotting [Iran]. Whether they like it or not, the Islamic Republic has transformed in the past 40 years from a thin twig into a thick trunk, with solid roots and branches in the sky.

Audience: Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America!

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: Allah willing, the slogans you chant against America, the Zionist regime, and the arrogant enemies will be realized in the not-so-distant future. Allah willing, you will succeed.
