The masses are in reality their own leaders, dialectically creating their own development process.
They are scared that the BBC or CNN may call them radicals, so they remain soft instead. The problem lies there, with the Muslim leaders, not the Muslim masses.
The masses are the decisive element, they are the rock on which the final victory of the revolution will be built.
Only through the conscious action of the working masses in city and country can it be brought to life, only through the people’s highest intellectual maturity and inexhaustible idealism can it be brought safely through all storms and find its way to port.

All the world over, I will back the masses against the classes.

I have witnessed the tremendous energy of the masses. On this foundation it is possible to accomplish any task whatsoever.
