In the name of Allah
This must be realized finally, and I believe that this struggle against the Zionist regime will bear fruit, I firmly believe in this. We must, by no means, think that it is too late even if decades have passed; certainly, by Allah’s Grace, resistance will bear fruit, just as the resistance has progressed today. There was a time when the Zionists chanted “From Nile to Euphrates.” Today they are building up walls around themselves, so that they can protect themselves on occupied lands. Hence, the resistance has progressed, and it will continue to progress. Palestine is a collective [nation]: a country with a history. As mentioned repeatedly, Palestine extends from the river to the sea; from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea: this is Palestine, and Quds is undoubtedly its capital. This fundamental thought and fact can by no means be disrupted.
Furthermore, the recent move by U.S. officials—the U.S. officials do such things, too, however the man who rules over the U.S. today behaves a little more blatantly, but other U.S. officials would carry out the same method because they are no different from this new person in office whom has taken unjust measures against Jerusalem (Quds)–is an approach that, certainly, will not advance: they will fail at doing what they have set out to do. Today, in our region, they [some Muslims countries] are deceitful. Everyone should be aware this, it is a deliberate act of betrayal to compromise with the enemy, an enemy like the Zionists, while being hostile to their Muslim brethren, like what the Saudis are doing today. This is certainly an act of betrayal that works against the Islamic Ummah and the World of Islam.
There is no power in the world that can put out the motivation for freedom and return of Palestine to its owners, in the hearts of Muslim nations and, especially, in the hearts of the Palestinian people.
