Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called for holding a free referendum in the entire Palestinian lands (including those under the Israeli occupation) to determine the fate of the country, and rejected the plans which envisage division of Palestine. Â Â Â“We neither propose dumping the migrant Jews in the sea nor the UN arbitration, rather our proposal includes a referendum to be participated by all Palestinians,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing the 5th International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Intifada in Tehran on Saturday.Â
He also dismissed the West’s plots to disintegrate Palestine, and said, “Today the West is standing on a crossroad and it should either leave its age-old bullying and recognize the rights of the Palestinians or wait for harder blows in the near future.”Â
Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the US President Barack Obama’s remarks that Israel’s security is Washington’s “Red Line”, and said Obama should know that this red line will be crossed by the awakened nations of the region.Â
