The Instances of Arrogant powers and the psychology of arrogance in the viewpoint of Imam Khomeini

Islam and revolutions that have sprung forth from Islam in all ages have been in danger of enemies and an attack by arrogant powers. This principle continues today as well.

In must be observed in regards to arrogant powers that they are not exclusive to particular people or a particular group. They cannot be considered to only be from one or two countries. Rather, they include individuals, organizations, and political parties who are open enemies of Islam. Because of their expansion they have been entitled the world arrogant powers.

Secondly, the enmity that the arrogant powers have with Islam started from the age of the Noble Prophet (s) and this groups enmity has severely increased with the internationalization and spread of Islam. They were always at war with the Prophet and his companions at all times; when the prophet had power and before he had power.

    This post is rhetorically brilliant as it doesn’t specifiy who these “arrogant powers” are supposed to be and yet points out very clearly as to where the accusation is directed.
    I think the post is right when he says that these “arrogant powers” should be viewed rather as individiuals than as whole countries. But as a result the ensemble of these individuals can’t cary an open and overall enmity towards the Islam as such as it is a pluralistic community that follows its very own dynamics. There might be some (or maybe many) individuals and organisations that follow an open enmity towards the Islam but those views can not be generalized onto the “arrogant powers” as such.
    Thus you can’t really speak of unified “arrogant powers” as well as you can’t speak of a single Islam, at least in my humble opinion.
