Islamic Revolution Leader, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei issued a condolence statement over the demise of Ayatollah Hussein Ali Montazeri.

The statement reads as follows.

I received the sad news of the demise of the honorable Islamic jurisprudent Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri. He was a knowledgeable Islamic jurisprudent and a prominent scholar, and many students benefited from his knowledge.

He spent a major portion of his life serving the late Imam Khomeini's movement. He made many selfless efforts and endured many hardships on this path.

During the latter stages of Imam Khomeini's auspicious life, he went through a difficult and critical test, and I ask Allah the Exalted to bestow mercy and forgiveness on him in light of the hardships he endured.

I extend my condolences to all of his family members, particularly to his honorable wife and children, and I pray to God to bestow mercy and blessing on him.

We stand firm in the Palestinian issue


The Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei receiving the Chief of Hamas' Political Bureau Khaled Mashaal and his entourage regarded resistance and faith in God together with action as the only way to save Palestine.

"It is God's immutable covenant that victory is for those who believe in Him and practice Jihad in His way," Ayatollah Khamenei said emphasizing that the Palestinian cause would lead to a bright future despite present hardships.

IRI Leader pointed out two aspects of what is happening in Palestine and said, "One is the Palestinians' Resistance in the face of the enemy and not yielding. The other is treachery on the side of some Arab leaders disguised as Muslims."

Ayatollah Khamenei praised Hamas leaders' uncompromising stance and asserted that the Islamic Republic of Iran regards the Palestinian cause as its own and thinks of its support of Palestinians as a religious duty.

Pointing to enemies' efforts to inspire a sense of indifference in Iran concerning Palestine, Ayatollah Khamenei said: "Enemies' plans did not produce despite employing various methods."

"One of the main reasons behind the arrogant powers' enmity with the Islamic Republic of Iran is the issue of Palestine and if Iran had withdrawn in the Palestinian issue, many of these enmities would have decreased but we stand firm in this issue and will not withdraw," stressed IRI Leader.

Referring to the Iranian people's support for the Palestinian issue, Ayatollah Khamenei said: "The idea that the Iranian people believe in support for the Palestinian issue from the depth of soul is because of Imam Khomeini's blessing who made this issue flow to the depth of souls and faiths of Iranian people."

"If the Palestinian issue is solved in a right way, many problems of the Islamic Ummah would be solved," he stressed.

Referring to latest threats of the Zionist regime against the Palestinian people, IRI Leader added: "If the Zionist regime wages another war against Gaza's people, it will receive a harder blow and a stronger defeat and will be disgraced in the world more than the disgrace of the previous defeat."

In this meeting, the Chief of Hamas' Political Bureau Khaled Mashaal appreciated the brave stances of the Islamic Revolution Leader and Iranian people and government on supporting the Palestinian people and presented a report of the latest situation of Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

"Resistance is the strategic option of Hamas, Resistance groups and the Palestinian people and we will never surrender in front of political and military pressures," said Mashaal.

Referring to the latest military threats of the Zionist regime against Gaza's people, he stressed: "If the Zionist regime makes a mistake and wages another war, this time it will receive a harder defeat because Gaza's faithful people, despite all pressures, now enjoy a higher morale and resistance power in comparison with the 22-day war


Ghadir marks true path of the Islamic Ummah


Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei received thousands of people Sunday on the occasion of the 18th of Dhu'l-Hijjah (December 6) which marks Eid Ghadir Khumm (the day in which the Noblest Messenger of Allah Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) announced Imam Ali (AS) as his successor) and said enjoying the divine criterion, the Ghadir issue marks the true path of the Islamic Ummah.

Ayatollah Khamenei congratulated the Iranian nation and all Muslims around the world on the occasion of Eid Ghadir Khumm and said the Ghadir event is deeper than other Islamic feasts in which the permanent duty of Muslims over guidance and government was determined according to divine criteria, so it was named as the greatest Islamic feast.

"That’s why they (westerners) have been using ample ploys and tricks over the past thirty years to marginalize the nation and the country but to no avail. Under God’s grace, neither will they be able to do so in the future."

"The Iranian nation tries to earn the nuclear knowledge to fulfill the needs of the next 20 or 30 years generation, but the West by creating turmoil, accusation and telling lie try to prevent the IRI national success," Ayatollah Khamenei added.

"Westerns raise hues and cry, accusations and lies to prevent materialization of the objective,” the IR Leader said. He cautioned the audience against imperialist powers’ political and propaganda conspiracies to deprive Iranian nation from their absolute nuclear right.

"Whenever the world arrogant powers when fail in using threats, military attacks and sanctions against a nation, they seek to sow discord am ong them, the IR Leader added.

They (arrogant powers) have arranged all their political, economical and military plots to defeat the nation."

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution highlighted patience and resistance of the Iranian nation as the grounds for progress in the country, reiterating," The Iranian patient nation will foil the aliens hue and cry and continues the way of the founder of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini with vigilance and will conquer peaks of glory."
