“The heavy and unforgettable responsibility for Palestine rests upon the shoulders of the entire Muslim world,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a message addressed to Chairman of the International Union of Resistance Scholars, Sheikh Maher Hamoud.
The following is the text of the message of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution to the chairman of the International Union of Resistance Scholars on the occasion of the union’s congressional hearing:
In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Respected scholar, your Eminence Sheikh Maher Hamoud, the respected chairman of the International Union of Resistance Scholars,
Greetings and peace be upon you and all respected participants of this conference. The heave and unforgettable responsibility of Palestine rests upon the shoulders of the entire Muslim world.
Without a doubt, scholarly elites, clerics and politicians, as well as the officials of Muslim countries carry the heavier part of this responsibility; this is a sacred and well-ending Resistance. The Divine promise guarantees definite victory of the resistance.
Your congress today represents part of this vast, public movement. May God help you succeed on this path. I recommend all individuals, who feel the importance of this great responsibility, to continue different methods of fighting against the usurper Zionist Regime.
Salams and Regards,
Sayyed Ali Khamenei
