“The US president says that Israel's security is his red line. What has drawn this red line? The interests of the American nation or Obama's need for the money and support of Zionist companies to secure his second term as the US president?” the Leader said Saturday at the fifth International Conference on Palestinian Intifada in Tehran.
“This red line drawn by Obama and people like him will be crossed by Muslim nations that have risen up,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
The Leader said that the real threat to the Zionist regime was the resolve of Muslim countries that did not want America, Europe or their stooges to rule over their countries.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that Western countries had to stop their support for the Zionist regime and recognize Palestinians' rights or face heavy blows in a not very distant future.
He also urged Muslim countries to cut off diplomatic and economic relations with the Zionist regime to prove their sincerity in supporting Palestinians, saying: "The most important pillar in supporting the Palestinian nation is cutting support for the usurper enemy."
The Leader rejected any solution seeking to split Palestine and called for the liberation of all Palestinian lands.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that a solution suggesting the existence of a Palestinian state along with an Israeli one amounted to the renouncement of Palestinians' rights, adding that any plan needed to be based on the principle of “the whole Palestine for all Palestinians.”
The Leader reiterated Iran's proposal of staging referendum for all Palestinians, saying: "Today, the Zionist regime is hated and America is confused more than ever."
The fifth International Conference on Palestinian Intifada opened at the Summit Conference Hall in Tehran on Saturday.
The conference focuses on the restoration of Palestinians' rights, including their rights to return to their homeland and determine their own fate, and on the liberation of Palestinian territories occupied by the Zionist regime.
