The whole world is celebrating today. The whole revolutionary, Islamic Liberationist, Counter-Hegemonic, Anti-Zionist, Anti-Imperialist, Anti-Parasitic and independent world, that is. Because 40 years ago at this very second, Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), the Imam of the Islamic Revolution, declared the end of Shah Pahlavi’s (L.A.) tyrannical regime and announced a new era for Iran–one that would not be beholden to any global power. Not Western. Nor Eastern. It would be the Muhammadi-Husseini way that would reign supreme.
The law of the Divine (SWT). Not the law of man. The Holy Qur’an, the Sunnah, Ahlul Bayt (A.S.), the Ahadith and the martyred Mouqawamist Ulema (R.A.) would be the guiding lights which would shine into the void until the void became no more. Not any of the relics left behind by the colonialists. The bacilli of Westoxification and Tahwid [Judaization] would be marvelously supplanted by Tawhid. From his prayer rug, armed with nothing but his intellect, a Thawrawi spark that ignited a blaze in millions of his countrymen and a love for Islam bigger than the combined size of all 51 galaxies in the Local Group, Imam Khomeini (R.A.) laid waste to nearly three decades of Zio-American hegemony and two and a half millennia of despotic, feudalistic rule that had placed the Iranian nation in manacles.
The caterpillars, monstrously oppressed by their SAVAK-constructed and Mossad-CIA-MI6-enforced cocoons, shattered these very prisons and became butterflies. And with every flap of their wings, led by Imam Khomeini (R.A.) and later Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, they pollinated the plants of Revolution, Resistance and Counter-Hegemony across the planet. And it all began at home.
Before the Islamic Revolution, under the “secular” and “enlightened” Shah (L.A.), there were a minuscule 16 universities with just over 154,000 students. Because of Wilayet al-Faqih, there are now a whopping 267 universities with over 4.5 million students. Half of Iran’s college-goers are women and Iranian females rank number one throughout the globe among those studying to become engineers–almost twice that of the American ZOG. With this, Iran has the fastest-growing scientific progress on Earth. Furthermore, literacy was a pathetic 41% under Pahlavi the Parasite (L.A.) Today, it is 93%. Iran is also 9th in the world in publishing new books and 7th in the world in registering new patents–compared to an embarrassing 38th under M.R. the Maggot (L.A.) Despite being surrounded by enemies and internal destabilizers in the ongoing Western-Zionist war on its project, Iran remains one of the safest countries in the world and has a booming tourism industry with 5 million visitors entering its borders yearly. Many will be chronicling these achievements and so much else–as they should be.
But we are choosing a more… imaginative means of celebrating and upholding the Khomeiniist ascendancy. Because there’s no better way of appreciating something magnificent than contemplating, even if it is for the briefest of moments, like the length of this essay, how life would be without it. What if… What if the momentous event of the Islamic Revolution never occurred? What if… Imam Khomeini (R.A.) didn’t make it back safely from France? What if his deputies were liquidated, killing the movement dead in its tracks? What if? It’s a disturbing thought. However, it’s one that should be pondered upon. For it will reinforce just how important, how gargantuan, how pole-shifting, how history-changing, how world-breaking, how mystifying and how glorious Iran’s triumph truly is.
If the Islamic Revolution never peaked, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) never would’ve been established. Dr. Moustafa Chamran (R.A.), Hajj Ahmad Motaveselian (may he be returned to us soon), Commander Saeed Ghasemi and many other legends never would have went to Lebanon with a 1,500-strong contingent. They never would have trained the young lions who would go on to become Hizbullah. The most successful Arab/Muslim anti-colonialist force would never be formed and there’d be no effective challenger to ‘Israeli’ occupation, terrorism and colonization. The Lebanese state would have been absorbed into “Eretz Yisrael” and today, the Lebanese people would find themselves in a scenario akin to Palestine. Multiple IOF ethnic cleansing operations take place, culminating in a Lebanese Nakba.
These same IRGC personalities also never would’ve traveled to Syria in the most crucial point of the conflict between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the US-Zionist-Jordanian-Iraqi-backed “Muslim” Brotherhood and imparted their knowledge of asymmetrical warfare to Bilad al-Sham’s defenders. Unable to utilize the proper tactics to beat back the insurgency, the SAA is overrun, dismantled and Syria winds up balkanized. ‘Israel’ advances from the south and extends its occupation of the Golan Heights into Daraa, Sweida and Damascus. “Eretz Yisrael” grows.
Dr. Fathi Shaqaqi (R.A.), heartbroken over the collapse of the Islamic Revolution, never establishes Islamic Jihad and the Resistance in Palestine is never galvanized and supercharged by Islam. Gaza is never liberated as a result of the Second Intifada because without the IRGC and Hizbullahi superheroes like Fawzi Ayyoub (R.A.), the Palestinian Resistance never gets the arms it needs and the Second Intifada never even occurs. ‘Israel’ doesn’t only expand its control over Gaza, resulting in the wanton displacement of millions of two-and-three-time refugees, it moves back into the Sinai and re-establishes the criminal colony of Yamit. Without Iran, International Al-Quds Day is never birthed either and global pro-Palestine consciousness stays stagnant instead of reaching the heights of DTI-seeking militancy.
As the Shah (L.A.), or one of his repugnant, mongrel-like progeny still maintains power, Iran is an outpost of Zio-Imperialism, not Islam and Striking Star Solidarity with the Moustazafeen. Thus, while the US-Saudi-‘Israeli’-backed dictatorship of Ali Abdullah Saleh is waging an exterminationist war on the Islamic revolutionaries of northern Yemen, the Houthi family has nowhere to go. Instead of traveling to the Khomeiniist Islamic Republic for safety, they are stuck in Saada and ultimately get assassinated. Ansarullah is never born. The September 21st Revolution, which parallels the February 11th, 1979 triumph eerily, never happens. Yemen remains occupied by the forces of despotism, collaboration and Sahyu-normalization.
Iraq dies a thousand deaths as the IRGC and Hizbullah never dispatch clandestine forces to aid the struggle against the American-British invasion and prevent the South specifically from falling into the aggressors’ hands. ‘Israel’, emboldened and having already expanded into Lebanon, Syria and Egypt, dispatches a Mossadnik terrorist contingent to the Kurd-controlled north, tells its Kurdish friends and family that their services are no longer needed and declares it to be an ‘Israeli’ province. “Eretz Yisrael” grows again. The pipeline from Kirkuk to Haifa is built and Iraqi oil now becomes ‘Israeli’ oil. Antiquities and Islamic-Christian sanctities are Judaized. The shrines of Imam Hussein (A.S.), Imam Ali (A.S.), Imam Moussa al-Kazim (A.S.), Imam Hassan al-Askari (A.S.) and more are bulldozed. ‘Israelis’ flock to Iraq in droves, colonizing and putting the Judaic stamp on sacrosanct Iraqi ground. The Halakhic-Zionist dream of establishing a Jewish “state” from the Nile to Euphrates is complete and the “chosenite” Imperium keeps globalizing on a grander scale.
Without Imam Khomeini (R.A.) as his reference and emulation point, Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky never becomes Shi’a and Zaria never becomes the Karbala of Nigeria. He never even becomes a Sheikh. Shi’a Islamic Liberation Theology never enters into the Nigerian social fabric. The greatest Islamic saint of our time and most prolific executor of Dawa outside of Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) and Ali al-Karrar (A.S.) themselves never attains his true rank. Millions of Nigerians touched by the Nour of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) are worse off than they ever could have possibly thought.
Syed Arif Hussain Hussaini (R.A.), the Pakistani Shi’a giant, like Dr. Fathi Shaqaqi (R.A.), is shattered over the loss of Imam Khomeini (R.A.) Mossad and RAW never plot to assassinate him because he never rises and reaches the status that he did with Sayyed Ruhollah (R.A.) as his guide. Instead, he dies in loneliness. The Zaynabyoun never come to be. Pakistani Shi’a aren’t inoculated against Takfirism and Zio-Imperialism by the power of the Islamic Revolution. The genocide against the community, driven in no small part by an even larger ‘Israeli’-Indian Dragon Policy, quadruples in scope.
Sheikh Ali Salman, Bahrain’s hero, doesn’t become the powerhouse we know today, as he can’t travel to Qom for his religious studies since the tyrannical Pahlavi dynasty closed down the Hawza. He pursues his secondary career in mathematics and fades away into mediocrity and obscurity, for there is no Islamically-derived passion to fight against the oppression in his own nation or Palestine. The Bahraini people descend deeper into despair.
Even non-Islamic states like Bolivarian Venezuela and Vladimir Putin’s Russia, which were both dependent on political support and financial backing from the Islamic Republic of Iran as they rebuilt themselves and got out from underneath the jackboot of the Anglo-Zionist Empire, can’t hold on. As we have seen in the modern age, one of the chief reasons Venezuela and the Russian Federation have been able to mount such mighty oppositionist currents against Washington, is because they’ve established an alliance with steadfast Iran. Without the Islamic Revolution, they are each on an island targeted by Earth’s Most Evil. El Comandante Hugo Chavez (rip) succumbs to one of the many coup attempts launched against him by Elliot Abrams and the neocons. He is murdered. Vladimir Putin is debilitated by the Jewish-Zionist oligarchs. He too is killed. Caracas and Moscow once again become ZOGs.
We could go further but that should be sufficiently torturous. In the simplest terms… We’d be living in total Zionist dystopia if Imam Khomeini (R.A.) and the Islamic Revolution didn’t triumph on this day 40 years ago. What took place in 1979 wasn’t just a win for Iranians. Nor Muslims. Nor Shi’a. It was a point of immeasurable joy for all of humanity. Concurrently, it was (and still is) a cataclysmic wake-up call for the Moustakbireen (oppressors), as they came to realize their plots stood no chance against a genuine, unblemished, Godwary movement with an equally genuine, unblemished, Godwary leader.
Imam Khomeini (R.A.) gave us the blueprint. Imam Khamenei amplified it–like a master-tailor picking up where the previous master-tailor left off and putting the finishing touches on a perfectly-stitched work of art. And as a result of the Islamic Revolution, we now have Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Hajj Qassem Suleimani, Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi, Sheikh Zakzaky, Sheikh Ali Salman, Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi, Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari, Abou Mahdi al-Mohandes, Aliakbar Raefipour, Agha Alireza Panahian, Hassan Rahimpour Azghadi, Dr. Hassan Abbasi and an increasing number of exceptional others. Imam Khomeini (R.A.) famously said to the SAVAK agents who mocked, captured and exiled him, that his soldiers were in their cradles. Now they’re grown and have had children of their own. Soon, those children will have soldiers too. The Islamic Revolution has become an ever-swelling, unkillable rain forest–sparkling with unique life and a canopy that hovers above any and all structures built by the Judeo-Western capitalist world.
The Islamic Revolution is the embodiment of truth prevailing over falsehood; the personification of the the oppressed vanquishing their oppressors. Verily, the world will never be the same again all because Imam Khomeini (R.A.) dared to stand up for what was just and what was right. On February 11th, 1979, we witnessed a miracle. 40 years later, that miracle has morphed into an unstoppable force of nature. Everyone who has tried to oppose it is rotting in the ground as well as burning in Jahannam, while Iran and the Resistance Bloc it leads continue to soar. If that’s not proof of Divine Intervention; of Islam’s truthfulness and solidity; and of Imam Khomeini’s (R.A.) righteousness, then nothing is. The Islamic Revolution isn’t the canary in the coal mine. It’s the phoenix in the coal mine, burning away the poisonous framework so no more innocents choke on toxic fumes and illuminating that brighter, clearer, healthier days are ahead. May it last until Imam al-Mahdi (A.J.T.F.) returns and takes over. May all its adherents, Martyrs (R.A.) and defenders be rewarded with the most remarkable pleasures of the Akhira. And may we all never, EVER forget just how horrifically engulfed in shadows the world would be without it.
