IRIB-News-June 10, 2008

Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khmenei in a speech Tuesday to the newly-elected lawmakers of the eighth Iranian parliament considered the phenomenon of religious democracy as being protected by some Divine custodianship.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the fundamental task of lawmakers shall be to feel responsibile towards God, adding that provided the directors of the System undertake the assignment, different minds and tastes would converge and rational intentions would get united in resolving the existing challenges in a composed atmosphere.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the ultimate goal of the Islamic Republic of Iran was to help human being to gain perfect spirituality, adding that the establishment of Islamic Community which is run by a fair system is just a vehicle to materialize the ultimate goals of the Divine Messengers, the mankind's spiritual perfection.

The Islamic Revolution Leader said God would protect the lawmakers if they undertake their God-assigned duties firmly and bravely, adding that such duties would be of higher importance once an individual sits the sensitive lawmaking position.

Ayatollah Khamenei said laws and regulations would act as software for any national movement and the significance would double if one considered the situation of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iranian nation which had opened a new track before the humanity.

Ayatollah Khamenei called the Islamic Republic an outcry in the face of blind move of hegemonic systems in trampling on humanity and justice, adding that the savior call would gain ground only through precise propagation that is the establishment of a just system based on Islamic thoughts especially in light of the fact that the revolutionary words of Imam Khomeini are genuinely attractive.
