TEHRAN (Iran News) – The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Iran’s Islamic Revolution Leader says the downward spiral of the Israeli regime has started and will not stop.
Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei noted the issue of Palestine remains the most important and very much a live issue for the whole Muslim community.
“There are two significant factors which determine the future,” said the Leader in a televised message on the occasion of International Quds Day.
“First and foremost is to continue resistance inside Palestinian territories as well as reinforce the trend of struggles and martyrdom,” Ayatollah Khamenei noted.
“The second factor is international support by Muslim governments and nations around the world for those fighting for the cause of Palestine,” said the Leader.
“Ayatollah Khamenei said unity among Muslims on the issue of Quds will lead to a nightmare for the Israeli regime and its American and European supporters,” he added.
“The failed ‘deal of the century’ scheme and the move by a handful of weak Arab states to normalize their relations with Tel Aviv are a desperate attempt to run away from that nightmare,” he explained.
The Leader said the Israeli regime has turned occupied Palestine into a terrorist base.
So, he added, fighting the despotic regime of Israel amounts to fighting terrorism.
He said that the Israeli regime is getting weaker year after year, adding that one cannot find any weaker entity than the Zionist regime of Israel.
Today, which is the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan, is marked by the people across the world as International Quds Day. The day was designated by Late Leader Imam Khomeini in 1979 to express support for the Palestinians and oppose Zionism and the Israeli regime.
Ayatollah Khamenei described the issue of Palestine as the most important and most active issue for the Islamic world, and then touched upon the atrocities and crimes done by the Israeli regime against the Palestinians.
He said that the Zionists drove out Palestinians from their homeland, and described Israel as the weakest regime in the world which is based on terrorism.

He went on in Arabic to say that Palestine and Quds have been occupied by devils who massacre honorable men.
