Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei today told a group of organizers of the upcoming Hajj that the “defeat” of Israel in the 50-day Gaza war was a manifestation of Muslim power.
“The defeat of the Zionist regime (Israel) in the 50-day war was the defeat of the symbol of Western power in the region at the hands of Gazan people,” Khamenei said. “The Gaza victory proved that Muslims are strong and have many capabilities, can defend themselves and challenge all enemies.” (Fars News Agency, 7 September)
“In the Palestinian issue, the Muslim fortunately have the upper hand,” Khamenei said, without any further explanations.
