Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that the US move to recognize Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as Israeli capital is out of despair, stressing that Palestine will be free.
During a meeting with Iranian and Muslim figures on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (saw), Imam Khamenei stressed that the US and Zionists can’t achieve their goals.
“It is out of despair & debility that they want to declare Al-Quds as capital of the Zionist regime. On issue of Palestine their hands are tied & they can’t achieve their goals. Victory belongs to Islamic Ummah. Palestine will be free, Palestinian nation will achieve victory,” the Leader said, according to IRNA news agency.
His eminence congratulated the Iranian nation, the Islamic Ummah (nation), and all the free people across the world, on the birth anniversary of the Prophet of Islam.
“Today, the enemies and others have lined up against the Islamic Ummah and the Prophet of Islam’s path: US, global arrogance, Zionist regime, as well as reactionaries and hedonistic figures among the Islamic Ummah,” Imam Khamenei addressed heads of government branches, a group of government officials, ambassadors of Islamic countries and participants in the 31st International Conference on Islamic Unity.
The Leader meanwhile stressed that the United States and Zionist entity are sowing discord amongst the Muslim nation.
“Today the Pharaoh is the US, the Zionist regime and their followers in the region who want to stage wars in the region; this is US’ plot. US officials have said: we should stage wars in the region to protect the Zionist regime’s security.”
His eminence lashed out at some rulers and elites in this region who “dance to the tune of the US and they do whatever the US desires against Islam.”
“We are up for unity; but, if there are people who are against this movement which is interested in unity and they are after staging war, we advise them: the outcome of what some states, in region, are doing will be as Quran says, ‘their own destruction.”
