The text of the Leader’s message is as follows:
In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Dear honourable scholar, Sheikh Maher Hamoud
The respected chairman of the International Union of Resistance Scholars
Greetings be upon your and all of the distinguished participants in this conference. The heavy and unforgettable responsibility of Palestine rests on the shoulders of the entire Muslim world.
Indeed, scientific, clerical and political elites as well as the officials of Islamic countries shoulder the greater share of this responsibility; this is a sacred and auspicious campaign; and definitive victory in this campaign is what God Almighty has promised.
Your conference today is an important part of this public and great movement.
I ask God Almighty for your collective success and urge all those who sense this great responsibility to press ahead with the campaign against the aggressive Zionist regime through different means.
Peace, mercy and blessings of God be upon you all.
Seyyed Ali Khamenei
