Palestine, Muslim world's priority: Iran Majlis Speaker

Sep 6, 2012 - Iran’s Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani says Palestine and restoring the rights of the Palestinian people have always been a priority for the Muslim world.

“International supporters of the Zionist regime [of Israel] have always tried to marginalize the issue of Palestine, but Palestine and restoring the rights of the oppressed people of this country has always been a priority for the Muslim Ummah,” Larijani said in a meeting with the senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar on Thursday. 

He further noted that resistance against occupiers of the Zionist regime is a deep-rooted movement in the Islamic world, adding, “The result of popular revolutions in the region is increased power of Islamic resistance in the world.”

Larijani stated that the role and position of Hamas as “the symbol of the Palestinian people’s resistance” should not be undermined.

Al-Zahar, for his part, stated that Hamas will never give up even an iota of the Palestinian soil and “struggle will continue until the complete liberation of all Palestinian territories.” 

The senior Hamas official also expressed gratitude over the Islamic Republic’s support for the Palestinian people’s resistance movement, adding that “Iran’s role in supporting Palestinian people over the past years has been nonpareil and no one can deny the importance and important position of Iran in this regard.”
