Khamenei calls to destroy Israel in 'phases'
At the closing ceremony of the conference, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani described the Palestinian issue as a deep wound in the body of the Islamic world and as an embarrassment for the global community and some Muslim states, Tasnim news agency reported.
"The Iranian nation has paid a heavy price for supporting the Palestinian nation and opposition to the Zionist regime's actions but it will continue its support with resolve and determination", Rouhani told Palestinian National Council chairman Salim Zanoun, according to Iranian state-run media.
A two-day global conference in support of Palestine opened here yesterday, with Speaker of Parliament Advocate Jacob Mudenda condemning Zionist Israel for its continued violation of a series of United Nations resolutions, including the regime's ongoing construction of illegal settlements within the Palestinian territory.
Every four years, since the 1990's, Tehran has hosted a similar conference to support the Palestinian cause, inviting guests who oppose Israel.
Speaking to the gathering, Khamenei said Israel was created by bringing Jews from other parts of the world to the Mideast region to settle in the land of the Palestinians to replace its "true entity".
Among the countries represented at the conference, whose focus is to support Palestinian resistance to Israeli occupation, are super powers Russian Federation and China, including North Korea and a host of other pro-Palestine militant groups like Hezbollah and Hamas.

Wakim emphasized that the conference is very important to support the Palestinian Intifada against Israeli aggression, especially at the time when "the United States and Israel are pushing to liquidate all remnants of the Palestinian cause".
The venue was decorated with a large map of Israel and the Palestinian territories covered in the colors of the Palestinian flag.
It expressed strong backing for the two Palestinian intifadas of 1987-1993 and 2000-05.
"Supporting the resistance is the responsibility of all of us", Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding, "No one has the right to have special expectations of them in return for assistance".
The creation of Israel is "one of the dirty chapters of history that will be closed, with the grace of God", he added. He also accused Israel's founders of being responsible for the current upheaval in the wider Middle East.
But he did not appear to endorse an all-our war on Israel, saying instead that it's a "cancerous tumor" that requires a "step by step" treatment. "The cure for this tumor should be developed in phases as well", Ayatollah Khamenei said.
