The Supreme leader of the Islamic revolution Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made an appeal on the holiday of Eid al-Fitr. In it, he made new attacks on Israel.
«According to Islamic law, if the enemy seizes the Muslim lands, Jihad becomes a duty of the faithful. Thus, the war with the Zionist regime is our duty. Why many shy away from it?» asked the Iranian leader listeners.
Khamenei said that the events in Yemen, Iran, Iraq and North Africa will not make the Muslims forget the Palestine issue. «She is the most important in the Islamic world, but some countries behave as if it does not exist,» said Grand Ayatollah.
In his opinion, to extinguish the fire sectarian fighting and terror, it is necessary to re-unite the Muslim world. «We must avoid the use of force. Bozhestvennoi should be guided by wisdom,» said Khamenei.
However, he strongly condemned foreign politicians, who, commenting on the terrorist attack in Tehran, said that Iran is the leading sponsor of terror. According to him, such policies drive a wedge between Shiites and Sunnis.
