Quran reciters met with Ayatollah Khamenei

Al-Quds is the capital of Palestine and the US cannot do a single thing

On the first day of the auspicious month of Ramadan, an assembly of Quran recitation commenced at the Hussayniyeh of Imam Khomeini with the Leader of the Islamic Revolution— Ayatollah Khamenei— in attendance.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution among Quran reciters, minutes ago referred to the recent crimes of the Zionist regime, and stated: "Palestine will be released from the enemies, with the Almighty God's grace and permission. Quds is the capital of Palestine; the U.S. and the like, neither smaller or bigger entities, cannot do anything before the truth and tradition of God regarding Palestine."

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, in an assembly of Quran recitation, this evening said: Today, the calamity of the Muslim world is due to its distancing from the Quran. The disastrous situation in some Muslim countries is due to their separation from the Quran. You see the situation in Palestine [how Muslim countries’ negligence of Quran has afflicted their brethren in Palestine]; a nation displaced from their homes; those who stayed in their homes are under extreme pressures of different kind. A great number died and numerous others were injured.

Some complain that the US doesn't take a position against Zionists. The US and some European countries are the allies [of Zionists]. You expect them to take a position against them?
It is on the part of the Muslim nation to take up a position for Palestine. The Islamic Ummah, the Islamic government, and the Islamic states should react and resist; but they don't. Why? Because they are far from the Quran; because they do not truly believe in the Quran.
