This study aims to analyze the identity-based positive and negative foundations in the context of the resolutions of 22nd of Bahman ceremonies (as the most important document of the Islamic revolution anniversary) in the 2010s. Therefore, it questions, “how the Islamic republic of Iran has represented its identity borders with its discursive others “the USA and Israel” in the resolutions of 22nd of Bahman ceremonies”. Answering this question is done through a two-level approach, having (critical) discourse analysis and cognitive linguistics. In this approach, the cognitive linguistics (CL) tools, especially Leonard Talmy (2000) force-dynamic patterns are applied in the micro level and the discursive analyses make the macro level to describe the study’s issue. The micro level defines how the resolutions formulate the entities Talmy introduces in his approach, the relation between these entities, Iran on the one hand and the USA and Israel on the other, which is generally understood in the framework of the global imperialism and oppression. The force-dynamics patterns describe the intrinsic tendency of these entities, their impingement state, and the result of this impingement. The macro-level data analysis is achieved through Laclau and Mouffe’s (2001) discourse theory.
