Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameini worked hard Monday to weave a tale that would inspire renewed loyalty to Tehran among terrorist-linked residents of Gaza and the Palestinian Authority, as he welcomed the head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group.
“Palestine will strongly persist and by the grace of God, the Palestinian nation’s ultimate victory will be realized in the near future,” the ayatollah told PIJ terrorist leader Ziyad al-Nakhala. “Thank God, the people of Palestine have resisted until now in the fight against the Zionist regime, and have been victorious.
“As for the recent years, the victory of the Palestinian people has not meant being able to establish a government in Tel Aviv — of course that will come true by God’s help.
“However, the main victory has been the fact that the Zionist regime — which Arab armies failed to defeat — was brought to its knees by the Palestinian people and the resistance; and by God’s will, you will achieve greater victories,” Khamenei added.
What is really interesting to note, and what’s new in this narrative, is the Iranian leader’s apparent comprehension at last that there will never be a “Palestinian government” in the eternal Jewish capital of Jerusalem, regardless of the Palestinian Authority fantasy promoted for decades by the entity’s leader and spinmeister Mahmoud Abbas.
Wonders never cease.
