Lawmaker Reiterates Islamic Revolution's Influence on Regional Uprisings

"Such popular upraising, as the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution has noted, are a wave of Islamic awareness, and this is an undeniable fact that the revolutionary moves of the regional nations are influenced by the revolution of the great Iranian nation 32 years ago, aimed at achieving independence, freedom and an Islamic political system in this country," Head of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Wednesday evening.

Earlier, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei had also underscored the profound and vast influence of Iran's Islamic Revolution on the growing wave of Islamic awakening in the region, and voiced confidence about the desirable outcomes of the current popular uprisings.

"Thanks to Islam and Islamic Revolution, a public Islamic awakening has happened in the region today, which will definitely yield its results as it has already yielded its results in certain points," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a group of Iranian people here in Tehran on Saturday.

"The more the people's determination, faith and readiness for sacrifice grows, the higher the chances of victory will be," the Leader continued.

In recent months, a wave of revolutions and anti-government uprisings has been sweeping the Arab world.

In January, a revolution in Tunisia ended the 23-year ruling of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

In February, another Arab revolution led to the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak after three decades of his authoritarian rule.

Other revolutions are erupting in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain, while other anti-government unrests have swept Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Kuwait and Algeria.
