Iran’s supreme leader calls on Muslim world to arm Gaza

Nasir Khan: The Arab rulers have American and Israeli rulers as their guardians and protectors. In return they do what US and Israel tell them to do. But any occasional word of sympathy by the Arab rulers for the people of Gaza who are being slaughtered mercilessly by Israel are only a public relations stunt meant to deceive domestic and Muslim audiences and a cover-up about their real masters and partners. To expect them to arm the Palestinians against a barbaric Zionist war-machine seems unrealistic. That’s the truth in a nutshell.

During his Eid al-Fitr address July 29, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei spent a considerable portion of his speech discussing the war in Gaza. He condemned Israel and called the attacks on Gaza “genocide.”

 In response to calls by Western nations to disarm Hamas, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “What do you mean, disarm? They have a few missiles to briefly defend themselves against the enemy.” He said the West wants to disarm Hamas so that “Whenever the Zionists want they can attack, light any fire, and [Gazans] would not even be allowed to defend themselves.”
He continued, “The president of America issued a fatwa that the resistance must be disarmed. Yes, it’s clear, you want this [minimal] attack in response to all of these crimes not to happen. We say the opposite. All of the world, especially the Islamic world, has a responsibility: whatever it can do to equip the Palestinian people.
