The Leader of the Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said that the abolition of the Zionist regime means the Palestinian people, the true owners of the land, choose their own government.

Iran PressIran news: On the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (s.w.a.), the heads of government branches, a group of government officials, ambassadors of Islamic countries and participants in the International Conference on Islamic Unity met with the Leader of the Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei, this morning November 15, 2019.

The following are excerpts from a speech by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei made at the meeting:

"Our position on the case of Palestine is definitive. Early after the victory of the Revolution, the Islamic Republic gave the Zionists’ center in Tehran to the Palestinians. We helped the Palestinians, and we will continue to do so. The entire Muslim world should do so."

"In the remarks of Imam Khomeini and the Islamic Rep’s officials, the issue of 'the abolition of the State of Israel' has repeatedly been raised. This doesn’t mean the abolition of the Jewish people; we don’t want them harmed. This means the abolition of the imposed regime and state."

"The abolition of the Zionist regime means the Palestinian people, the true owners of the land, choose their own government and oust people like Netanyahu. This is going to happen, like the Balkans, which became independent after 60 years, and the nation returned to their country."

"We are with the people and for the independence of Palestine; we are not anti-Semitic. The Jews live completely safe in our own country, Iran."

"We seek and cherish unity. Islamic unity has enemies, esp. the U.S. govt. and the Zionist regime. The U.S. is not just Iran’s enemy. They are hostile to the Muslim world, to Palestine, and to the nations of West Asia and North Africa. The nature and logic of Islam is why they are hostile."

"The U.S. and Israel are more opposed to Iran, but they’re also opposed to the Saudis. They openly say the Saudis only have money, and they should take it. Enmity more than this?!
The Saudis must understand the duty of a dignified man facing this enemy? What’s required by the Islamic and Arab dignity and honor against such insults?" 207
