In US people starved to death in streets: Supreme leader Ayatollah says Iranians proved again they are powerful

"The people proved again that they are powerful and great, and defeated the big conspiracy of the enemy with their presence on the scene," Iranian Supreme leader said.

Tehran (AFP) - Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday praised the country's people for foiling a "very dangerous" plot, after violence erupted during protests this month against a fuel price hike.

Khamenei said Police and security forces entered the scene and performed their duty, but what the nation did during this week was more important than any other measure. 

The movement started in Tabriz and Zanjan, spread to all cities, villages, and this great movement took place in Tehran.

The demonstrations broke out on November 15, hours after the shock announcement at midnight that the price of petrol would be immediately raised by as much as 200 percent.

They quickly turned violent and saw petrol pumps torched, police stations attacked and shops looted, before being quashed within a few days.

Officials have not yet given overall figures on the number of casualties or arrests made during the unrest which affected much of the country.

"The people foiled a deep, vast and very dangerous conspiracy on which a lot of money was spent for destruction, viciousness and the killing of people," Khamenei said, quoted by state television.

The Iranian leader was speaking at a gathering of the Basij -- a militia loyal to the Islamic republic's establishment.

On Twitter, Khamenei expressed his "heartfelt gratitude and appreciation" to the Iranian nation in a post alongside pictures of a massive pro-government rally held in Tehran on Monday.

@khamenei_ir I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to the great #IranianNation for their magnificent movement during recent days. The people proved again that they are powerful and great, and defeated the big conspiracy of the enemy with their presence on the scene.

"The people proved again that they are powerful and great, and defeated the big conspiracy of the enemy with their presence on the scene," it said.

The tweet blamed the unrest on the "#GlobalArrogance and #Zionism" -- in reference to Iran's arch-enemies the United States and Israel.

@khamenei_ir The grave, extensive and very dangerous conspiracy that #GlobalArrogance and #Zionism spent so much on and worked for so that they could cause this destruction, villainy, and murder in #Iran at a crucial time was quashed by the presence of the people.

Domineering countries led by tyrants are fundamentally against #freedom and #justice: In the US there are people who starve to death in the streets, whereas the majority of wealth belongs to a small number of the population. They even inflict any injustice they can on the world.

Domineering powers are against #freedom. The biggest freedom is a nation’s freedom and #independence, which they are against. They enter via colonialism, then via Neocolonialism, today using new methods, soft war, and if they can, they use military force without hesitation.

The opposition of domineering powers to #Islam is inevitable. It is most when Islam is in the form of a political system with a govt, armed forces & scientific advances. Their hostility is 100s of times more against us as a set, powerful political system that governs +80M people. Khamenei concluded.
