Crowd: Allah Akbar.
Khamenei is the leader.
Death to those who oppose the rule of the jurisprudence.
Death to America.

Death to the hypocrites [Mojahedin-e Khalq] and Saddam.
Death to Israel.
Ayatollah Mohammad Ememi-Kashani: One young Iranian is worth all you [Americans]. He smiles at your weapons. Is he afraid? We hope that by the virtue of Muhammad and his household, God will give some brains to the arrogant, the enemies, and to the Zionists.
