BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared that al-Quds [Jerusalem] will remain the capital of Palestine, during a meeting with organisers and officials of Iran’s Hajj organisation in Teheran on Monday.

“The satanic and filthy policy that the US has adopted regarding Palestine, and termed the ‘deal of the century’, but they should know that this ‘deal of the century’ they have imagined will, by the Divine Grace, never come true,” said Ayatollah Khamenei.

The Iranian leader then dismissed the decision to make Jerusalem the official capital of Israel, and instead said: “contrary to the expectations of US officials, who are all over the place to do something about the Palestine issue, the issue of Palestine will not be forgotten and the holy city of al-Quds will stay as the capital of Palestine.”

Full transcript:

SOT, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iranian Supreme Leader (Farsi): “The policy that the US has adopted regarding Palestine is satanic and filthy, and named it the ‘deal of the century’, but they should know that this ‘deal of the century’ they have imagined will, by the Divine Grace, never come true.”

SOT, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iranian Supreme Leader (Farsi): “Contrary to the expectations of US officials, who are all over the place to do something about the Palestine issue, the issue of Palestine will not be forgotten and the holy city of al-Quds [Jerusalem] will stay as the capital of Palestine; and the primary qibla of Muslims will remain for Muslims. The hallucination they have dreamed, thinking they take al-Quds [Jerusalem] and saying beneath the city, above the city, the depths of the city, everywhere, its east and west should be in the hands of Jews is irrelevant talk. That will not happen and the Palestinian nation will surely stand up against it and the Muslim nations will stand behind the Palestinian nation to prevent that from happening.”

Considering Jordan being 77% of Palestine, the capital is obviously Amman, period. ““The satanic and filthy policy that the US has adopted regarding Palestine, and termed the ‘deal of the century’, but they should know that this ‘deal of the century’ they have imagined will, by the Divine Grace, never come true,” said Ayatollah Khamenei.” => Says the man who created ISIS! It’s the pot calling the kettle black. BTW, he has no idea what the deal of the century will be. Some rumours say that Egypt will give 20,000km² in Sinai while Gulf states and UN will invest billions… Read more »
