Hassan Rahimpour Azghadi, who is a member of the Iranian Supreme Council for Cultural Revolution, said during a broadcast that aired on Channel 1 TV (Iran) on Dec. 21, 2018 that Iran’s global influence extends into Yemen, Lebanon, Palestine, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and other countries throughout the world, and that it even has supporters in the United States and Europe.

He said that Iran has forces that are willing to sacrifice their lives for it even without being told to do so.

He gave the example of a Hindu Marxist professor at the University of Delhi in India who told him that if America attacks Iran, he and his students would fight alongside Iran, even in Indian territory. Azghadi alleged that leftist Indian students had told him that they would leave no Americans alive in India if the U.S. attacked Iran.

Azghadi referred to a statement by Imam Khomeinei that a world war would break out if the United States attacked Iran and added that Iran is not a country; rather, it is a “great international revolution.”
