Speaking at a press conference here in Tehran on Wednesday, Larijani dismissed the recent hues and cries made by the West about Iran's nuclear program, and its allegations about Iran's human rights record and involvement in an alleged terrorist plot on the US soil, and said the US-led West has grown pressures and animosity towards Iran because of the growing ties of Islamic awakening in the region.
"The reason should be found in another place which is the Islamic awakening of the regional people."
"It should be known that the West is upset because of the Islamic awakening of the regional nations," Larijani added.
Meantime, the Iranian top legislator said that the regional movements will continue their move regardless of the West's pressures on Iran.
Is political Islam replacing Arab dictators?
With a victory for Islamist parties in Tunisia and Morocco, is political Islam now spreading across North Africa?
The Arab revolution spread accross the Arab world as the population demanded political change. But in Morocco protesters did not bring down the government.
The Moroccan monarch quickly responded to their demands by amending the constitution, giving parliament and the prime minister more powers, and calling for early elections, which were held last week.
It resulted in a resounding victory for the Islamist Justice and Development party. And now, its leader Abdelilah Benkiran has become prime minister, a post that had nothing to do with democracy previously.
In the past, the king chose whomever he wanted to head the government regardless of the will of the country's 33 million people.
With the victory for the Islamists in Tunisia and the Muslim Brotherhood expected to gain political clout in Egypt, is the Arab world about to become home to political Islam? And can these parties bring an alternative to corruption and dictatorship?

Two points should be clarified in advance. The first point is that our demand is the liberation of Palestine, not the liberation of a part of Palestine. Any plan to divide Palestine is completely unacceptable. The two-state idea which has been presented in the self-righteous clothing of "recognizing the Palestinian government as a member of the United Nations" is nothing but giving in to the demands of the Zionists - namely, "recognizing the Zionist government in Palestinian lands". This would mean trampling on the rights of the Palestinian nation, ignoring the historical right of the displaced Palestinians and even jeopardizing the right of the Palestinians settled in "1948 lands". It would mean leaving the cancerous tumor intact and exposing the Islamic Ummah - especially the regional nations - to constant danger. It would mean bringing back decades-long sufferings and trampling upon the blood of the martyrs.
Any operational solution must be based on the principle of "all of Palestine for all Palestinian people". Palestine is the land that extends "from the river to the sea", not one inch less than that. Of course it should be noted that through its elected government, the Palestinian people will run the affairs of the any part of the Palestinian soil they manage to liberate, just as they did in the case of Gaza, but they will never forget the ultimate goal.
The second point is that in order to reach this lofty goal, what is necessary is action, not words. It is necessary to be serious, not to make ceremonial gestures. It is necessary to have patience and wisdom, not engage in a variety of impatient actions. It is necessary to consider horizons that lie far ahead and to move forward step by step with determination, reliance on God and hope. Muslim governments and nations and the resistance groups in Palestine, Lebanon and other countries can each identify their share of work in this general struggle and solve the puzzle of resistance with Allah's permission.
Tunisia , Egypt , Morocco , Yemen , Bahrain are getting out of the path toward the New World Order.
