Sayyid Ali Khamenei - Sept. 2008

Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei underlined Friday that the Palestinian issue remains to be the prime regional problem at present, calling for the Muslim people across the globe to take to streets in droves to mark the World Qods Day (Sept 26).

Ayatollah Khamenei told worshippers in Tehran university campus, the venue of Tehran’s weekly Friday prayers that the upcoming World Qods Day ceremonies prove more significant as the Zionist regime had tightened the grip on the Palestinian people.

“The usurper regime has heightened pressure over the Palestinians after facing back-to-back defeats. They could not keep their fake dreadful image in the hearts of the Arab nations due to the valiant resistance of Lebanese and Palestinian warriors,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Ayatollah Khamenei denounced the west over its refusal to recognize the elected Hamas government. “The Gaza-based government of Hamas is the very legal authority which the world is expected to recognize. However, those who profess to cherish civilization but otherwise show no trace of humanity witness how the Zionist regime treats the Palestinians and keep silence and even supports it,” the IR Leader deplored.

Ayatollah Khamenei then urged the world of Islam to voice its stance over the issue. “The day of Qods is a favorable chance for the world of Islam. May God confer mercy on Imam Khomeini who designated the day as a day of solidarity with the Palestinian nation,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Ayatollah Khamenei expressed hope the world of Islam would see a substantial part of its population out of homes and in streets voicing their support to the Palestinian people. “God willing the world of Islam would grab the opportunity to live up to the right of the Palestinian people.”
