Iran assails two-state solution for Palestinians

Iran’s supreme leader assailed a two-state solution for Israel and the Palestinians on Saturday, saying the Palestinian bid for statehood at the United Nations is doomed to fail.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the Palestinians should not limit themselves to seeking a country within the West Bank, east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip — which would implicitly recognize Israel — because “all land belongs to Palestinians.”

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has asked the U.N. Security Council to recognize an independent Palestinian state in those areas, which were captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war.

Israel and the United States oppose the U.N. bid, saying there is no substitute for direct peace negotiations. But with Israel continuing to build settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, Abbas says there is no point in talking.

Iran doesn’t recognize Israel and considers it an archenemy.

Khamenei, who spoke at a pro-Palestinian conference in Tehran, called Israel a “cancerous tumor” that should be removed.

Iran supports the militant Palestinian Hamas group, which rules Gaza and which does not back the statehood bid pushed by Abbas and his Western-backed Fatah movement.

“Our claim is freedom of Palestine, not part of Palestine. Any plan that partitions Palestine is totally rejected,” Khamenei told the gathering. “Palestine spans from the river (Jordan) to the (Mediterranean) sea, nothing less.”

Khamenei claimed that a two state solution would mean “giving in to the demand of the Zionists” and that it would “trample the rights of the Palestinian people” to live on their land.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reacted angrily to Khamenei’s speech.

“The declarations of hatred from the ayatollah regime on the intention to destroy the state of Israel reinforces the government’s steadfast position for the security needs of Israel’s citizens and the demand for recognition of Israel as the Jewish state,” Netanyahu said.

The conference in Tehran was attended by senior Palestinian militant leaders, including Syria-based Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal, who told the gathering that “resistance” was the only option left for the Palestinians.

“Palestinians must resort to resistance no matter how costly it is, until Palestine is free and Israel is destroyed,” Mashaal said.

Mashaal’s comments could potentially undermine Abbas’ U.N. bid and stall talks between the rival Palestinian factions on power-sharing. The talks were expected to resume in the coming week.

Abbas and Fatah favor a negotiated peace deal with Israel, while Hamas is sworn to Israel’s destruction. Israel has warned Abbas it will not negotiate with any Palestinian government that includes Hamas.

    With support like this who needs enemies? SO khomieni, what do you suggest? another 100-200 years of Palestinian casualties at achieving nothing? These idiots would rather have the Pals die fighting with sticks and stones than accept a start to a future of some sort for them? islamist logic is so twisted and down right stupid its almost laughable. good luck fighting fighter jets and future war technologies with rocks and the odd suicide attack lol. This plan will surely keep Israel getting STRONGER and keep their war machine driving their economy nicely. morons…

        When everyone who dies becomes a ‘Martyr’, then it’s all so wonderful, right?
        We know where the tumours are, and the cancerous thoughts that emminate from the Supreme Being’s aging brain are the only ones causing problems.

          logically if they keep calling for the elimination of israel and all they are  missing is the opportunity, then israel sooner or later will have to preemptively  go on the offence and wipe them out before iran  got the goods to make their dream come true, which in forward thinking  is a nightmare for the whole region and especially  lebanon  will get scraped and bruised from the magnitude of israels reaction, no doubt israel will not hesitate to use nukes and not stop after 30 days for the un to make a toothless resollution. senile supreme and budy frump need to think twice.

        You can’t convince them. Palestinian identity exists entirely due to antagonism towards Zionism.

    We agreed in principle to give away the holiest site in Judaism. We went in and forcefully ethnically cleansed our own people from Gaza. If the Palestinians actually wanted peace, there would be peace by now.

    These backward peace hating groups are the only thing stopping the people from having a peace of land to call home.
    The fact is they don’t care about the people.
    So the Palestinian people should STAND UP and say enough is enough, let us the people decide if we want peace with Isreal or not.
    Stop talking on our behalf because we are SUFFERING NOT IRAN OR HA OR ANYONE ELSE.

    it is  not  in the interrest of those axes of evil regeme iran,syria, that the palestinians have there own state and palestinian  problem is resolved , because that is how they are gaining a lot of power  by lying to there own people telling them that they are fighting for the palestinians cause ;  so they can rule there people by dictatorship and steal all there country wealth and oil money ; where the rest of there citizens live in povertylevels ;  the iranian people  and the syrian people need to weak up and realize ,that there rulers , are lying to them and decieving them , claiming that they are working for muslim cause , in reality they are robbing and king and torturing muslims all across the middleeast and iran ,they are killing there own people for political gain, and just a few years ago iran had  stole the land of iraq arab and mulim land , and they went to war  with irq killing 2 millions iraquis , the palestinian people should recognise that they have been played and used for over 50 years by those axis of evil , so they will have an exuse to brutally rule and kill there own people  and rob there country wealth , all in the name of palestinian cause , if iran truly cares about palestinians people such a rich country like iran with 100 billions dollars a year  earned from oil , why would they let 2 millions palestinians living in tents like cavemen for years , across the middleeast in camps and tents for 5o years most they do,nt even have running water and electricity , why would,nt iran say here are brothers, this is 10 bilions dollars donations and we will build you homes ,where you live until you resolve your problems and go back to your country ;  the truth is those iranian evil regeme are big liers , and they care for there own self interrest , they created hamas and ha to further complcate the palestinian israeli peace issues , because like this they can rally more ectrmist around them and radicals , so they keep there dictatorship in power longer and longer , soon the plaestinian cause resolved , they become much less powerfull and radicals will fade away from them and the iranian people will overthrough those dictators regeme easily and democracy will prevail , no wise man or woman in iran or the rest of world should believe anything those iranian officials say.

    The Iranian people had a cultural tradition of questioning things. I don’t think that the transition to democracy would be all that difficult if they could just get rid of that group of fascists.
