Iran's Khamenei: Palestine will be captured from the enemies
Khamenei: We are grateful to God for having bestowed upon us yet another year in life to benefit from Ramadan and to visit this luminous Quranic gathering, enjoying the blessings of Quran to the extend that our capacity allows.
Khamenei: It is the Muslim states that should take a stance against it [the massacre of Palestinians]. The Islamic Ummah, Muslim states are the ones that should rise up but they don't; because they've distanced themselves from Quran and don't believe in Quran.
Khamenei: The calamity that has befallen on some Muslim societies is due to ignoring Quran. Look at Palestine where dozens have been killed and injured. Some complain why US does not take a stance against it. US and some western countries are complicit; do you expect them to oppose it?.
Khamenei: By God's grace, Palestine will be freed from the vicious enemies. Al-Quds is the capital of Palestine and the U.S. and its followers cannot do a single thing against the Truth and the Divine Tradition regarding Palestine. AlQudsCapitalOfPalestine
