Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei speaks at a meeting with participants in the International Conference of Muslim University Professors and Islamic Awakening in Tehran on December 11, 2012.
The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has praised comments made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in support of the people of Palestine.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the resistance movement hailed Ayatollah Khamenei’s speech to participants in the first International Conference of Muslim University Professors and Islamic Awakening, which was held in Tehran on December 10 and 11.
The leader’s “unifying and enlightening remarks once again shed light on the region’s main problem and the source of sedition and evil, that is the ill-natured presence of the Zionist regime [of Israel],” said the statement, a copy of which was faxed to IRNA.
The statement noted how the remarks highlight the issue of Palestine and prevent it from being drowned out amid the ongoing developments in the Middle East region.
In his Tuesday speech, Ayatollah Khamenei hailed the Palestinian people as well as the resistance movements of Hamas and Islamic Jihad for an incredible victory against the Israeli regime.
The Hamas statement praised the remarks for foiling the enemies’ plots aimed at “sowing discord between the movement and the Islamic Republic through the spread of rumors about the closure of Hamas offices and accusations against the movement’s leaders.”
