Trouble in Palestine
Supreme Leader: Liberation of Palestine Responsibility of All Muslims
The Fars News Agency reports: “Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined the importance of this year’s International Quds Day rallies, and reiterated that liberation of the Palestinian territories from the hands of the usurper Zionist regime is the responsibility of all Muslims.
Ayatollah Khamenei noted that liberating Palestine from the grip of Israel and its allies is a religious duty for all Muslims across the world.
He also called for an enthusiastic participation in demonstrations marking International Quds Day.
During a meeting with hundreds of veterans from the Iraq-Iran war, Ayatollah Khamenei said that a high turnout on Quds Day would give a crushing response to the enemies of Islam and Palestinians.
The Leader described the occupation of the Palestinian territories and the formation of the Israeli regime as the root of evil in the Middle East.
Had this conspiracy not taken place, these wars, divisions, and interventions by colonialists and oppressors would not have occurred, the Leader stated ” (This headline could be the Armageddon over which they claim is coming. Once they have a Palestinian State, they will demand that Jerusalem becomes Palestines capital. Egypt and Jordon are demanding this for Palestines leaders and President Obama has already promised this would take place after the elections. That move is what creates a global war when they divide Gods Holy City Joel 3:2. See the next three reports.)
Egypt’s President Mursi Calls Palestine “Top Priority”
The Fars News Agency reports: “Egyptian President Mohammad Mursi called the Palestinian issue a top priority agenda not just for his state, but for the entire Arab nations, and voiced his government’s strong support for the official membership of an independent Palestinian state at the United Nations.
Palestine is the top priority of Arabs, Mursi said during his remarks at the opening session of the Arab League’s 138th regular meeting of foreign ministers, which began at the AL headquarters in Egypt’s capital of Cairo.
He said despite the high pace of all challenges and developments in the region, the Palestinian issue has remained unresolved, adding that Israel is not serious about finding a solution to the issue.
That’s why we are necessitated to support the Palestinian issue so that a fair and comprehensive solution is found to meet the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and form an independent Palestinian state, Mursi continued.
He added that Egypt will make its utmost effort to support recognition of an independent Palestinian state at the UN ”
