TEHRAN - Spiritual Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Seyyed
"The issue of is an important issue that needs attention throughout the Islamic world," Khamenei said in a speech at the "International Conference on Palestine" held on October 1-2, 2011, then.
According to Khamenei, the Palestinian issue has a number of special characteristics. First, Muslim countries it is taken from its rightful owners, then handed over to strangers who gathered from various countries, and forming a false state.
Second, continued Khamenei, an event like this had never happened before in human history. Where the massacres, crimes, injustices, and insults continued on without stopping.
"Third, the first Qibla of Muslims located in this country, and religious centers are respected threatened demolition, humiliation and insult," he explained.
The fourth characteristic, said Khamenei, in the most sensitive for the Islamic world, government and community fake (Israeli) plays the role of the military, security, and political arrogance as the principle of state since its creation until today. "And this Western colonialist-axis against development, unity and progress of Islamic countries with a variety of reasons-is used as a dagger to stab the heart of Muslims," he said.
Fifth, Khamenei said, Zionism-which is a threat to moral, political and economic footing for the humanitarian-use this as a tool and a springboard to spread the influence and hegemony in the world.
He said, and other points that can be added is financial and human cost of the expensive paid by the Islamic countries. Among the occupation of Muslim countries and peoples, the suffering of millions of Palestinians in refugee camps for over six decades, and an end to important historical centers of civilization in the Islamic world.
Khamenei asserted, more than six decades have passed since the tragedy of bitter occupation of Palestine. The main cause of this bloody tragedy is nothing but an act of the British government. "The policy of political, military weaponry, and the economic strength of Britain and Western countries, played a role in the suppression of the Palestinian people," he explained.
According to Khamenei, under the pressure of a cruel colonizers nan cruel, helpless Palestinians are massacred and forcibly expelled from their homes. "Until today, the portrait of the tragedy that befell the Palestinian people, less than one percent of the exposed media. The owners of a majority of Western media, did not want this tragedy unfold. The Palestinians were massacred in silence," he said.
Khamenei said the solution offered by the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Palestinian issue is a clear and logical proposal, based on political policies that can be accepted by the global public. "We do not propose to invite the soldiers of war classics with Islamic countries. Nor does it propose to throw the Jews into the sea of immigrants or intervene in the UN and other international organizations," he said.
"We proposed a referendum among the Palestinian people. Like other nations, the Palestinians have the right to determine their own destiny and choose their own government," he said.
All native Palestinians, including Muslims, Christians, Jew and non-immigrants must take part in the referendum is to determine the future of Palestine. The government formed after the referendum will determine the fate of Palestinian immigrants who migrated to Palestine in the past.
"This is a fair and logical proposal, which the public can be understood globally. And should get support from countries and independent government," Khamenei said.
