TEHRAN (Press Shia) – The Palestinian Popular Resistance Committees lauded Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei for his remarks in support of Palestine and in rejection of the so-called deal of the century.
In an interview with Al-Manar TV, the spokesman for the Palestinian Popular Resistance Committees, Abu Mujahid, appreciated Ayatollah Khamenei and the Islamic Republic for defying the plot that has been hatched against Palestine under the name of deal of the century.
Iran has been almost the only country that has taken a formal stance against the deal of century ploy and explicitly voices support for the cause of Palestine, he added.
Abu Mujahid also said that Palestine has pinned its hopes on great nations like Iran and on the stability and wisdom of their leaders.
In the Eid al-Fitr sermons in Tehran on Wednesday, Ayatollah Khamenei said the US-Israeli plot against Palestinians, known as the deal of the century, is doomed to failure and will never materialize.
Decrying the US conspiracy for the deal of century, the Leader said the betrayal of the cause of Palestine by some Muslim countries, including Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, has provided the grounds for “the evil plot”.
The deal of the century will never materialize, Ayatollah Khamenei said, expressing gratitude to some Arab countries and the Palestinian groups that have voiced their opposition to the deal.
The deal of century ploy, fronted by US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, has already been rejected by the Palestinians, who say the White House’s policies have been blatantly biased in favor of Israel.
Palestinians have cut off all contacts with the Trump administration since the president broke with decades of bipartisan policy to recognize al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of Israel in December 2017.
In the meantime, Bahrain is going to host a conference this month to encourage what it calls investment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as part of Trump’s plan for Palestine.
The so-called “Peace to Prosperity” economic workshop, to be held on June 25 and 26 in cooperation with Washington, has already been rebuffed by Palestinian officials and business leaders.
