Must be Tuesday… Iran’s supreme leader calls for jihad against Israel

The Iranian leader’s remarks come at a time of growing conflicts between the country and the Arab states

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said Muslims today are obliged to fight Israel with whatever means they have because Palestine is the foremost issue of the Islamic world.

“According to Islamic jurisprudence, when an enemy takes over Muslim lands, Jihad in any possible form becomes everyone’s duty,” Khamenei told Muslim ambassadors, Iranian officials and the public in Tehran on Monday during a meeting on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, reported Iran’s state-owned news media Press TV.

“Palestine is the number one issue of the Islamic world, but some Islamic countries are acting in such a way as to have the Palestinian case ignored and forgotten.”
