Top cleric calls Palestinian issue Iran’ top priority
Addressing a huge gathering of worshippers here in Tehran on Friday, Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahedi Kermani pointed to a recent conference on Palestine held in Tehran and expressed his gratitude to the high-ranking foreign officials and guests participating in the international event.
He said the issue of Palestine is closely related to Islam, which says the domination of the unbelievers over Muslims is prohibited.
“…We cannot just overlook it (the Palestinian issue) and the world should know that Palestine is the top priority for the Islamic Republic of Iran,” the cleric stated.
The 6th International Conference on Palestinian Intifada was held in Tehran on Tuesday and Wednesday with around 700 foreign officials and intellectuals, including 18 parliament speakers, in attendance.
Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Sayyed Imam Ali Khamenei was the keynote speaker at the opening session of the gathering.
In his speech, Imam Khamenei said the third Palestinian intifada (uprising) will begin a very important chapter in the history of the Palestinian nation’s fighting and will inflict another defeat on the Zionist regime of Israel.
In recent years, the concept of resistance has attracted a great deal of attention across the Muslim world.
It refers mainly to the courage and fortitude shown by the people of Palestine, who have withstood Israel’s crimes for years.
