Iran’s supreme leader to Islamic Jihad: You have proven you can ‘crush the enemy’

August 15, 2022The Times of Israel reports: “Iran’s supreme leader applauded the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group on Thursday, telling the leader of the Iran-backed organization it had proven Palestinians could ‘crush the enemy’ during three days of fighting with Israel last week.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the remarks in an exchange of letters with Islamic Jihad’s general-secretary, Ziad Nakhaleh, according to a report in Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency.

In the letters, Nakhaleh and Khamenei both played down divisions between different Gaza terror groups, after Hamas sat out last week’s fighting.

Khamenei told the terror chief, ‘The recent event has added to the honors of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement and elevated the status of Islamic Jihad in the magnificent resistance movement of the Palestinian nation.’

‘You have proven that each section of the resistance is able to crush the enemy,’ Khamenei told Nakhaleh, who was in Iran for meetings with the terror group’s main backers throughout last week’s fighting…”  (Israel will never be destroyed.  God has declared His love for Israel from its very beginning: And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.  None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.  And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live… Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil – Ezekiel 16:4 – 6; 9.  Deuteronomy 7:6-8 states: For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.  The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:  But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.  Despite the rantings and ravings of the world: …let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance – Psalm 83:4, God has promised: …I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off – Isaiah 56:5.  See the next report.)
