15 th Khordad, a turning point in the history of the nation

Khordad 15 th is approaching. Our nation should not forget it. It should be treasured in memories. Fifteenth of Khordad is a turning point in our history. From that date onward our political activities started. The clergies equipped and themselves well. When I came out of the prison, I was told that the agents of Shah in the districts whereon 15 th Khordad campaign was underway had arrested and executed the people. I was informed that on 15 th Khordad, fifteen thousand people were killed. Those days we considered this a great event. Indeed, it was great. Later the crimes of the deposed Shah were far greater. We cannot imagine the crimes which have been committed since 15 th of Khordad till the departure of Bakhtiyar «1» from this country by the Shah's agents and Americans. We cannot count them. We can just tell a summary of it. It is beyond imagination and numeration. How can we know the number of the disabled ones. The martyrs and executed ones; it is said they were fifteen thousand. But those who gave their bodies partly and rendered themselves disabled, what about them? How their body parts can be compensated? We can neither narrate the plight nor can we even frame the happening in our fancy. Anyway, it was a great havoc in our nation. But it initiated the movement. Since that day, rather a little earlier, our clergies started the campaign. The uprising grew in the hands of clergies. It sprung from Qum. It reflected far and wide. The regime arrested the clergies. Almost all the clergies in Tehran were imprisoned. Later on, gradually they were released. Although there was havocbut it was a gift from god. People were aware now. They concurred and gave consent to the call of the clergy. The campaign spread across the country. The root of the campaign was Khordad 15 th. Little by little it became demotic and disseminated. Thanks God the foreigners' roots were eradicated from this country. The Shah departed. America provided him refuge. He is now under the protection of America. He is living somewhere near Egypt which is under the power of America. However, the Khordad 15 th was a calamity to the nation but it was the blessed day, which ended in the independence and the freedom of the country as a whole.

Avocations of some countries in the crimes of America

We obtained freedom at a heavy cost. But its worth stands higher. Those who support America and the previous regime, still try to bring the past conditions back to the country. But this is a vain idea. Carter has recently announced that he will intervene if other governments do not do that. He has told that he will intervene for the sake of those who are imprisoned in Iran. This is a criminal thing, particularly for the president of America who claims to protect human rights. This is a crime. He should be put to trial. Carter should be brought to justice in an international court. Where are those who claim to respect the independence of all the countries? Why do not they check Carter? On what grounds does he want to assault Iran- an independent country? He has brought his army and wants to bring more. Where are the others? Are they supporting a criminal? Where should we protest? Where should we complain? The countries are the followers of America. The heads of those countries are all employed by America. They support the crimes America is perpetrating. To which quarter, to which court should we go to complain about these tyrants? They are holding the reins of the victims in their hands.
Unfortunately the governments which claim to be independent are satellites of America. They should be charged for the economical blockade keeping a nation under the pressure of need and deprivation. Such an act is based on what principle of the human standards? Which law is in line with such an act? The only justification is that America is powerful. It gives us the only justification that America is powerful. It gives you orders. Do you think that by economical blockade, our nation will be defeated? Will it be humiliated? Will it fear you?

American threat won't have any effect on the strong will of the Iranian nation

The Americans should know and all other who want to intervene in our affairs militarily, even if the Soviet Union and all its allies intervene- you all know that your intervention or your incursion nor your economical blockade will have the least influence and effect in the decision and determination of our nation. We are girded up for every thing. We are prepared for death. What do you want to make us afraid of? What can make us fear? We are ready for martyrdom. Your militarily incursion? Go and frighten those who are afraid of death. This country is willing to embrace martyrdom because it discerns martyrdom as its own prosperity. Therefore, none of us have any fear of any of these things. Let America do what it wants as Carter has said. Let them do that, and then they will understand what the matter is and where and how the things stand. It is better if Mr. Carter takes a lesson from Afghanistan. The government of Afghanistan is already in line with him and with Soviet Union. The government of Afghanistan is already in line with him and with the Soviet Union. The communist and Leftists parties too are in agreement with him. The parties are in agreement with him. Afghans have had no modern weapons. They took weapons from Russian soldiers and killed the Russian officers by their own weapons. Still it is going on. The Soviet Union sends weapons and soldiers daily. But so far it has not been able to humiliate the brave nation of Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, although the Communists and the Leftists are allied they cooperate with the government. But they cannot humiliate the nation.
In Iran, thank God, the government and the nation are together. The Leftists who are with America, here they are not paid any attention. We don't take them seriously. One day all of them will vanish. America should know that it cannot do anything by its military attack. Likewise, the economical blockade is of no use. A nation that observes fast and believes in martyrdom never fears these things. Therefore, this 15 th Khordad though it was heavy for us as we had to sacrifice several martyrs it brought blessings for us. I congratulate the people. I hope our country will remain constant at its campaign here after too as it was on the 15 th of Khordad. All the mighty ones may get disappointed to intervene in the affairs of our country. May God make you all prosperous. May God give strength to Islam. I hope this uprising go beyond the frontiers and reach of all the Islamic countries. This school is for all the oppressed ones to get rid of the arrogant. Thanks God the beginning has already defeated them. Such a start is already begun in the world. It is not only in Iran, but everywhere in the world. the oppressed are awaken. The absolute majority is with them. I hope the tyranny will soon be wiped out. May God bless you. May God's peace, mercy and blessings be upon you.
«۱»- Shapour Bakhtiyar, the last Prime Minister of the Shah's regime.
