"Anti-Capitalism, Islamic Awakening Inspired by Imam Khomeini's Thoughts" (Fars News-Iran)

This is reminiscent of North Korean claims that "all progressive people" are impressed by the Juche idea:
The thoughts and notions of the Late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, is the source of inspiration for the growing tides of Islamic awakening in the region and the anti-capitalist moves in the western society, the Iranian Armed Forces said in a statement on Saturday.

In a statement released on the occasion of the 23rd anniversary of the demise of the Founder of the Islamic Republic, the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces stated said that revolutions in the Middle-East followed by the collapse of the West-backed dictatorial regimes in the region was a materialization of the events forecasted by the Late Imam Khomeini.

"23 years after the painful demise of the great architect of the Islamic Revolution, the emergence of Islamic Awakening in the region and anti-Capitalism movement in the western bloc indicates the effects of the Revolution and the influence of Imam Khomeini's pure thoughts beyond the Islamic Iran's geographical boundaries," the statement said.

In relevant remarks in February, Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei had also described the Islamic Revolution as a source of inspiration for the revolutions and popular uprisings which have swept the Middle-East and North Africa.

Addressing Iranian Air Force personnel here in Tehran at the time, Ayatollah Khamenei said that Iran did not claim that the Islamic Awakening in the region had been initiated by Iran, but, no one could neglect the fact that the waves of Islamic Awakening had been inspired by the victory of Islamic Revolution.

The leader underlined that the latest developments in the region and the Islamic Awakening proved that the Iranian nation was moving in the right path and that the Islamic Revolution had flourished and was dynamically moving forward towards its goals 33 years after its victory.

Ayatollah Khamenei added that slogans of the Iranian nation had prevailed over the region and the nations following global arrogance had now stood by Iran pursuing the same goals.
Sounds like that refers to "arrogance," doesn't it?
