MP: Islamic Awakening in the Region Was Iran Revolution's Explosion of Light

Commenting on the formation of the Islamic Awakening faction in the Majlis, Ali Akbar Kaeidi said the new faction had been launched in line with the guidelines of the IRI Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in support of the popular movements in the region. He said on the permanent agenda of the new faction will be the recent events in the region and the expanding wave of Islamic awakening.

He said as the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran Imam Khomeini had said "the Islamic Revolution was the explosion of light", adding: "The light of the Iranian revolution is now brightening the Middle East and North Africa.

The lawmaker said the victory of the Islamic Revolution was the first wave of the Islamic awakening; the second wave was the 22-day war the Lebanese Hizbollah won against Israel; and the third wave which started from Egypt, Tunisia and Bahrain and reached North Africa including Morocco and Algeria. "I am sure that in view of the economic problems the West is facing we will soon witness the fourth wave of the Islamic awakening in the West," the MP said.

Kaeidi, also a member of the Health and Treatment Commission of the Majlis, said the present century is the century of victory of the oppressed over the oppressors, adding that the Islamic Consultative Assembly (Majlis) will play its part in this effort.

He said inside Iran too all officials should work for the cause of unity because, the lawmaker noted, the people in other countries are fixing their eyes on the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Islamic Awakening faction issued its first statement Monday accusing the US and Israel of being behind the Syrian unrests. "Wherever the Iranian nation see footsteps of the US and Zionism it would regard that action deviational," said the statement.

What the peoples in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Bahrain, Yemen, Jordan and Saudi Arabia want is Islamism and establishment of popular and Islamic governments, the statement said, adding that the Islamic Revolution of Iran has played as a model in this great movement.

Referring to the trial of former dictator of Egypt Hosni Mubarak, the statement said the people of Egypt would not quiet down unless "this pharaoh of the time and ally of usurper Israel and criminal US" is sent to the gallows.

As for the Saudi rulers, the statement said they have exposed their real face and committed the highest degree of tyranny against the defenseless people of Bahrain. It added that the fall of the Saudi monarchs was near as they faced a doomed fate in this world and severe punishment in the other world.

The statement slammed NATO for plundering the Libyan people's national resources and wealth and for massacring them instead of supporting the oppressed people of the country.

Turning to the recent unrests in Europe, the statement said the wave of global awakening had penetrated deep into the heart of Europe, including Britain, Spain, Italy, Greece and France. It predicted that after UK it would be the turn of the US to face a similar tragedy to what has happened to its ally. In the meanwhile, the statement strong condemned the brutal and racist behavior of the British government in suppressing its people and urged international and human rights organizations to see into the tragedy.

Referring to continued efforts by the arrogant powers, led by the US, to harm the Islamic Republic of Iran through different military, political and economic means, the statement urged the Iranian officials and media to refrain from involvement in secondary and sideline issues under the present sensitive conditions.

The new faction is headed by Seyed Shahabedin Sadr, second deputy speaker of parliament.

Sadr said at the time that his group will closely monitor the Islamic awakening trend and plans to meet with revolutionary groups in the region who are fighting US and Israeli despotism.

He said the group will most probably hold its first session next week, adding that the faction will operate under the Majlis Association of Principlists and share their goals and inspirations.
