Don't say the destruction of the Zionist regime is impossible; nothing is impossible in this world

A great fallacy which has taken control over some minds, concerning the issue of Palestine, is that a country named "Israel" is a 60-year old reality with which one has to reconcile. I do not know why these people do not learn from other realities that are in front of their eyes. Is it not a fact that the countries of the Balkans, Caucasus, and Southwest Asia reclaimed their identity after 80 years of loss, and after being parts of the former Soviet Union? Why can't Palestine, which is part of the body of the Islamic world, reclaim its Islamic and Arab identity? Why can't young Palestinians, who are among the most astute and resistant of Arab youth, overcome this unjust reality by their will and resolution?

Another great fallacy is to say that negotiations are the only means of deliverance for the Palestinian nation. With whom are these negotiations to be held? Are they to be held by a usurper, a misguided and aggressive regime, that does not believe in anything other than excessive use of force? What have those who have been captivated by this game and delusion achieved?

Firstly, what they obtained from the Zionists in the form of the Palestinian Authority--its humiliating and disgraceful character aside--was at the enormous expense of having to recognize the ownership of the usurper regime over nearly all of Palestine.

Secondly, even that partial and fake authority was at times trampled underfoot by Zionists with flimsy excuses. The siege of Yasser Arafat, in Ramallah, at his administrative building and numerous forms of humiliation he endured are not events that can be forgotten.

Our view on the issue of Palestine is clear. We believe that the solution for Palestine is the destruction of the Israeli regime. They cannot say it is impossible; nothing is impossible in this world. Anything is achievable. All the huge mountains that prevent people from moving are removable. Forty years have passed; if it continues for another forty years, the state of Israel will still be destroyable in the end, and it must be destroyed. Only a short time ago, no one thought that the Eastern superpower would collapse. If two years ago someone said that the superpower of the East would be destroyed, some would have denied, pretending to be philosophers, by saying “you are naive!" The day Imam Khomeini wrote to Gorbachev in a letter, that “Since then Marxism was to be found in museums only," some sneered! Only after two or three years, that prediction came true. After the death of Imam, shortly one year after his death, everything changed. How is it impossible?
 The American arrogant power will also perish; it will collapse; this doomed power is not forever lasting, neither is Israel. This is the word of the Iranian government, nation and the Islamic Republic system, and it will come true. This will come true through awareness of the Iranian nation and all the Muslim nations. We must strive to achieve this goal. Our duty is to strive.
