Tehran:Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei says an upcoming US-devised deal on the Palestine issue is doomed to fail and will “never materialize.”
While delivering his Sermon on the day of Eid-al-Fitr at Imam Khomeini’s Mosalla Grand Prayer Grounds in Tehran, Supreme Leader of Islamic Revulotion Ayatollah Khamenei slammed heads of Muslim states that betray the Palestinian cause and asserted: The treason committed by some Muslim states has lead them to blatantly perpetrate treasonous acts related to the question of Palestine.
Referring to the Arab summit in Bahrain, the Supreme Leader stated: The summit that is to be held in Bahrain belongs to the U.S. But the rulers of Bahrain, with their various weaknesses and faults, and their anti-democratic and anti-Islamic spirit have laid its foundations and have committed themselves to the organization of this summit. This summit aims to help realize the treasonable and wicked plot by the United States— what they have called as the “Deal of the Century”.
His Eminence reminded his audience that the move by Saudi and Bahraini governments will turn to their detriment and held: The rulers of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia do not understand what a quagmire they are stepping into. This will of course not succeed and the Deal of the Century will never gather momentum by the grace of God, God willing.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution appreciated the Muslim countries that refrained from partaking in the treasonous summit and maintained: We appreciate those Muslim and Arab countries, as well as Palestinian groups who opposed it.
The Leader further rejected US President Donald Trump’s yet-to-be-unveiled deal on the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict as “a betrayal of the Muslim world.”
Ayatollah Khamenei further denounced the Bahraini regime for agreeing to host a conference, where Washington is set to unveil parts of the plan later this month.
All Palestinian groups along with the United Nations and several other countries have boycotted the event.
“The objective of this conference is to materialize America’s wrongful, treacherous and evil scheme for Palestinians — which they (Americans) have called ‘the deal of the century.’ However, this will not happen, and this plot will never get off the ground, by divine grace.”
Ayatollah Khamenei described the Palestinian cause against Israeli occupation as the “number one issue” on the agenda of the Islamic world, thanking those who have voiced opposition to the so-called “peace” deal and the relevant event in Bahrain.
“The treachery of some Muslim states such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain set the stage for such an evil plot,” Ayatollah Khamenei said. “I wish Bahraini and Saudi rulers would [eventually] realize what a quagmire they are stepping in and what damages this will do to their future.”
