Imam Khamenei

Ayatollah Khamenei warned Bahraini leaders of supporting the Zionist regime

Today, the issue of Palestine is among the most important issues of the world of Islam, actually, it is the most important one. That is while they organize a summit in Bahrain, at the command of the US, on destroying the issue of Palestine. The rulers of Bahrain should know that they are pulling the rug from under their own feet. They should not be deceived by the Saudis. They, as well as the Saudis, are pulling the rug from under their own feet and this will end in their own disadvantage: “And so will they continue to spend, but in the end they will have only regrets and sighs.” [The Holy Quran, 8: 36]

They spend money and work hard, but it will end in their own disadvantage, despite what they had hoped for. The Quran says this in a decisive way. All these measures will end up in their own disadvantage, but they do not understand. Unfortunately, they do not understand. They can return because the path to return is open. They can repent because the path to repentance is open: “Except those who repent and make amends.” [The Holy Quran, 2: 160] They should make amends and make up for the corruption that they have caused.

Today, the world of Islam needs this. The problems of the world of Islam will be resolved if Muslims cooperate in harmony with one another. We should work to that end. The intellectuals of the world of Islam are responsible. The ulama of the world of Islam are responsible.

We in the Islamic Republic have accepted the price for defending Palestine. We have declared that we would defend Palestine. The world of arrogance stood against us then and delivered blows, but we showed resistance and we stood firm and we will continue to stand firm. We are certain that the final victory will belong to the Palestinian nation.

The treason of some orientations in Islamic countries has led to explicitly treasonous actions regarding the issue of Palestine. The summit that is going to be held in Bahrain is orchestrated by the Americans, but the rulers of Bahrain have prepared the ground for this with their weakness, their various inabilities, and their appallingly bad and anti-popular and anti-Islamic spirit. They have committed themselves to hold this summit.

The goal of the summit is to implement the wrong, treacherous and malicious plan of the US regarding Palestine, which has been referred to as “the deal of the century.” Of course, this will never happen and by Allah’s favor, the deal of the century will never be concluded.

I wish to thank those Muslim and Arab countries which have expressed their opposition to it and also the Palestinian groups which have opposed it. This is a grave act of treason against the world of Islam! I hope that the rulers of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia realize in what quagmire they are setting foot and what damages it will inflict on them in the future.
