Gholam-Ali Haddad 'Adel: "England, and then America, wished to have control over the Islamic world, to prevent Muslim unity, and to have control of the oil resources in the Middle East. Therefore, following World War II, they established an artificial, false, and fictitious state called Israel in this region.

"They established a political party, and supported the Zionists, claiming this was support for the Jews of the world. They mobilized the racist Zionists, who are not accepted even by many Jews. They came to Palestine, and under the pretext of wrongs supposedly done to them during World War II, they carried out terrorism, conspiracies, massacres, and bloodshed in this region.

"The indigenous Muslim people of Palestine and the Arabs of the region have been here for over 1,400 years, since the advent of Islam, and have their civilization and culture. They drove them out of this region with massacres. They turned them into refugees and tent dwellers. They made them homeless, dispersed in various countries. The Western governments supported them, exerted influence in the U.N., and created this fictitious state.

"They lied, exaggerated, and fabricated events, in order to present their unjustified deeds as justified. This shows the depth of the animosity and rancor that America, England, and the supporters of Israel harbor towards the Muslims and the Islamic world."

[...]

"America talks about democracy and the rule of the people, and claims that the vote of the people should be respected - but by means of the plundering Zionist regime, it wants to take revenge upon the Palestinian people for voting Hamas in the elections."

[...]

"Today, the peoples have awakened. The Muslims have awakened and are facing you. As you have seen, they are facing you in Lebanon, and so far you have not dared to set foot on Lebanese soil."

[...]

"Today, nobody in the Islamic countries is rolling out the red carpet for you. Today, the land of Palestine is painted red with your contemptible blood."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Khamenei is the leader."

Gholam-Ali Haddad 'Adel: "Today, the confrontation is not only within the borders of Lebanon. It is taking place deep within your land. Today, your flourishing cities in the north of Israel… of occupied Palestine are within the range of fire of the fighters and lion cubs of Hizbullah. Today, Haifa and Tiberias are within Hizbullah's range of fire. No place in Israel will be safe."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Khamenei is the leader.

"Death to those who oppose the rule of the jurisprudent.

"Death to America.

"Death to England..."

Gholam-Ali Haddad 'Adel: "Today is the day you will flee occupied Palestine. You must return to your homes."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Khamenei is the leader."

Gholam-Ali Haddad 'Adel: "Our slogan and the slogan of the Islamic world is: Everyone should return to his own home."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar."

Gholam-Ali Haddad 'Adel: "The Palestinian refugees should return to the land of their forefathers, and you, who came to Palestine from other countries, should return to your homes too.

"Today is the day of the liberation of Palestine, and the day of resistance. As said by Hassan Nasrallah, this courageous, vigilant, and informed religious scholar, the war has just begun."

[...]

"We say to America, England, and the supporters of Israel in the West: You will not benefit from supporting Israel. You are earning the hostility of 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, under the pretext of supporting a handful of Zionists, whom you brought and stuck, like a dagger, in the hearts of the Muslims in the Middle East."

Crowd: "No more humiliation.

"No more humiliation.

"No more humiliation."

Gholam-Ali Haddad 'Adel: "The Americans should know that as long as this festering growth remains in the body of the Islamic world, with their support, the Muslims will never, under any circumstances, cease to hate and to oppose America."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar."

Gholam-Ali Haddad 'Adel: "The Muslims throughout the world say: Stop your support for Israel, or else don't expect any kind of peace or reconciliation with the Islamic world."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar."

[...]

Gholam-Ali Haddad 'Adel: "To Hassan Nasrallah we say: Well done. This religious scholar roars like a lion, and the blood of Imam Khomeini rages in his veins."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar."
