Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Qatar in order to cheer on
his country's national team in the Asia Games, and used the opportunity to
meet Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh face-to-face Friday night.
Haniyeh embarked on a trip around the Middle East.
Ahmadinejad used the meeting between the two leaders to express his support
for the Palestinian people's struggle and to give his prediction for the
continued existence of the State of Israel. He emphasized the need for Muslims
throughout the world to give their full support to the Palestinian people
against the aggression of the occupying regime.
The Iranian president doesn't see a chance for peace on the horizon.
"This regime was established in order to force the policy of the United States
and Britain on the states in the region. It can't even help the establishment
of peace and security. Today, even other Western politicians are expressing
their doubts on the need for the continued existence of the illegitimate
regime and are suspicious of its existential ideology," said Ahmadinejad
during his meeting with Haniyeh.
He called all Muslims to stand by the Palestinians and to encourage their
struggle. According to him, "The continual crimes of the Zionists will hasten
the fall of this counterfeit regime."
Haniyeh thanked the Iranian regime for its support, and said, "The intifada
will continue until Palestinian rights are realized and holy Jerusalem is
liberated." This is Haniyeh's first time leaving the Gaza Strip since he was
elected prime minister.
