The following is the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei’s letter to Hamas leader Ismail Haniya in which the Leader praises the bravery of resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip.

In the Name of God the Compassionate and the Merciful

To the Hamas leader Ismail Haniya

“Peace be unto you and so may the mercy of Allah and His blessings”

The 20-day perseverance of you, the courageous resistance fighters and the people of Gaza against one of the most atrocious war crimes in the history of the world has hoisted the flag of glory overhead the Islamic Ummah. You have proven that Muslim hearts filled with confidence in God and the Day of Judgment, which will not bow to oppression, can create such heroism that will bring the arrogant powers of the world and their well-equipped armies to their knees.

The army, which you have managed with your perseverance to keep outside Gaza City for the past 20 days, is the same army that took large portions of three Arab states in just six days.

You must be proud of your unshakable faith in God almighty and his promises, of your courage, patience and sacrifices, as today, the whole of the Muslim world is proud of it. Your resistance has brought shame on the US, the Zionist regime and their supporters in the United Nations and in certain Islamic countries.

Today, not only Muslim nations, but also many European and American nations have acknowledged your righteousness. In our eyes, you are victorious today and with the continuation of your resistance, you will further bring shame to the enemy.

You must remember that “Your Lord has not forsaken you, nor has He become displeased,” and that “Soon your Lord will give you so that you shall be well pleased,” God willing.

But even so the atrocities committed in Gaza and the death of innocent Palestinians, especially the children, has deeply saddened us. Our entire nation is in mourning because of the crimes committed by the occupiers of Palestine which are broadcast from our television channels everyday.

I pray to God for a speedy victory. As God almighty never goes back on his promises and has said “And surely Allah will help him who helps His cause; most surely Allah is Strong, Mighty” and “Those who strive, strive for their own good”….

Those among the Arab world who have committed treachery must know that a fate no better than that of the Jewish people involved in the battle of the clans will befall them, as God almighty has said “He also brought down their allies among the people of the scripture from their secure positions.”

The nations of the world stand beside the people and resistance fighters of Gaza. Any government that goes against the will of its nation will further distance itself from its people and the fate of such government is obvious.

They must remember that the Commander of the Faithful Ali ibn Abi Talib has said “Living a life of defeat is death and a death with dignity is life.”

I salute you and the resistance fighters of Gaza and the oppressed and resistant people of Gaza.

Aside from the Islamic Republic of Iran’s efforts to aid you, which we have viewed it as our duty, I pray for you day and night. I wish you patience and victory from God almighty.

“Peace be unto you and unto every pious person and so may be the mercy of Allah and His blessings”

Seyyed Ali Khamenei

Sayyid Khamenei said: “The Islamic world which has a rich source of natural resources, a strategic geographical location, a lot of land, and a large population of active and educated people can be transformed into a power. But, the old leaders of the world are in opposition to this issue.”

 

“The enemies of the Islamic world opposed Iran’s nuclear program eventhough they knew it was peaceful because this national movement in Iran is leading to progression.”

 

“The Islamic world with all of its abilities does not have enough strength to defend itself. Islamic countries must take practical steps in order to implement this issue. They must forget whimsical obstacles, geographical differences, race, and sect.”

 

“Unfortunately, some politicians, educated people, and scholars in the Islamic world have fallen into this trap. But, everyone must know that the path to strengthening the Islamic world is unity; the heartfelt and practical cooperation between Islamic countries.

“The Zionist regime, which once looked invincible, suffers its weakest ever position now, being unable to stand against the shelter-less and lone Palestinian nation that nevertheless has been persevering,” Ayatollah Khamenei told the Hamas Political Bureau Chief, Khaled Mashal and his accompanying delegation.

“May Allah’s peace be upon the Palestinian nation which has stood by like mountains despite all these stunning and unprecedented atrocities,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The Islamic Revolution Leader said that the sole way to free Palestine was to keep resistance and faith. He appreciated the elected Hamas authorities, not least the Premier Ismail Haniya, for adopting a brave and resolute stance.

The Islamic Revolution Leader expressed deep sorrow at the current woes of the Palestinian people, especially the inhumane siege of the Gaza Strip coupled with the daily bloodshed of women, children and other defenseless people in the area.

“The tragic scenes are painful. However, the perseverance of the innocent Palestinian people against the usurper Zionist regime which is backed by all sorts of economic, military and propaganda supports, generates hope and proves to be a Divine Promise,” the IR Leader added.

Ayatollah Khamenei elaborated that the Palestinian issue and the frustration of the Zionist enemy and arrogant powers against the nation as well as the ever growing achievements of the Iranian nation despite all pressures in the past thirty years are all the clear interpretation of the God’s promise that ‘if one assists the faith of God and persevere, God too would assist him.’

Ayatollah Khamenei noted that perseverance in the path of God has a price, adding however that those who step in the path and endure any potential hardships would be honored by God whereas those who choose another path would pay the price of being shameful before God.

Khaled Mashal for his part delivered a report on the latest Palestinian developments, especially the disastrous situation in Gaza, adding however that the Palestinian nation takes honor in its perseverance and would not relinquish resistance or support to the Hamas government under any conditions.

Hamas Political Bureau Chief said the Palestinian youths have embraced spirit of martyrdom, adding that the issue had given a large boost to the position of the Palestinian resistance.
