Khamenei: Settlement of Palestinian issue is in democracy
Supreme leader of Iran Ayatollah Khamenei stated that the path Iran chose in settling the Palestinian issue is based on democratic standards. According to Khamenei, the plan suggested by Iran complies with international standards and is officially confirmed in UN. “Our solution of the Palestinian issue is completely logic and based on democratic standards. Does this plan of the Islamic Republic, which is officially confirmed in the UN, not comply with the international standards? Why do the Europeans not want to understand it?”, Khamenei asked during a meeting with professors and academicians of Iran. Indicating the visit of Israeli prime minister Netanyahu to Europe, Khamenei accused him of hypocrisy. “This criminal, who dominates all oppressors in the history, lied to Europe: “Iran wants to destroy us and millions of Jews”, whereas Iran’s offer on settlement of Palestinian crisis is completely logic an sound and complies with all democratic rules”, the Supreme leader stated. Khamenei criticized the silence of Europeans against crimes of the Zionist regime in Gaza and Jerusalem and said, “We always say that in order to determine shape and form of state government in historical Palestinian state, we should act on the basis of the public opinion, using methods accepted by the international community, on the basis of consultation and referendum”, “We need to consider opinions of all true Palestinians, including Muslims, Jews, and Christians, who lived at this land at least last 80 years, both inside and outside of the occupied territories”. It should be reminded that until now Iran accused “Israel” of genocide of the Palestinian people and threatened to wipe off “Israel” from the world map as a solution to the Palestinian problem.
