Iranians mark anniversary of victory day in 1979 revolution

Iran's Islamic Revolution Meant

Netanyahu quickly fired back on Monday night, saying that if Tehran attacks Israel, it will be the last anniversary of the Islamic Revolution that they celebrate.

Every year, the anniversary festivities start on February 1 - the day Khomeini returned home from France after 14 years in exile to become the supreme leader as Shiite clerics took power - and continue for 10 days, climaxing on February 11.

He said, "We will not let America become victorious.Iranian people have and will have some economic difficulties but we will overcome the problems by helping each other".

The years since have been marked with domestic struggles between reformist and conservative politics, and worldwide disputes over Iran's nuclear development. "It has been moving forward over the past 40 years and making Iran stronger".

Over the past decade, Iran has frequently test-fired and displayed missiles, sent several short-lived satellites into orbit and in 2013 launched a monkey into space.

"Perhaps worst of all, the people of Iran have suffered grievously".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday that Iran was determined to expand its military power and ballistic missile programme despite mounting pressure from hostile countries to curb Iran's defensive work, state TV reported.

The son of the Iran's last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, says Iranian society is close to a "flash point" like it was before the 1979 Islamic Revolution and that the government in Tehran is near collapse.

Earlier, Trump's chief foreign policy advisor John Bolton issued a similar statement, tweeting that "it's been 40 yrs of failure. But if they attack us, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground", Javani told the state news agency IRNA.

"If this regime makes the terrible mistake of trying to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa, it will not succeed", he said.

State television offered blanket coverage of the commemorations, showing marchers in cities ranging from Abadan in south-western Iran to Mashad in the northeast, all joined in fervent denunciations of both the US and Israel. Today, the United States, its Arab allies and Israel are trying to counter Tehran's growing influence in the Middle East, where it has proxies in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen. -Gen.
