The Zionist regime's foundations in the region are shaky, unstable, and faulty: this is not something wherein the key to solving matters are in the hands of other government officials. The people's emotions in some of the countries, which happen to have a long history of friendly relations with the Zionist regime – I will not mention which countries, are getting much tenser towards the Zionist regime than other countries. The overall concern rest with several nations.

 

The Zionist regime's lack of legitimacy has been carved into the hearts of the Islamic Ummah and this is not erasable. They will not be able to solve this problem with the efforts of the White House and by transferring the US embassy to Quds and other such actions. This problem is unsolvable. And without doubt, by Allah's favor and with the determination of Muslim nations, this regime – which has been created on the basis of falsehood – will be completely destroyed.

 

Like all free countries in the world, the people of Palestine – real Palestinians – should be asked for their opinions: this includes Palestinian Muslims, Christians, and Jews. Those who are Palestinian – not those who have entered Palestine from other places – should be asked to express their opinions. The votes of those who are Palestinian should become a point of reference. They should be asked to give their opinions. It is they who should determine the government of the country of Palestine. Then, that government will make a decision on those who have entered the region unlawfully – the Zionists, their leaders, and the rest.

 

There is no other way to heal Palestine, and this also provokes the annihilation of the evil and illegitimate Zionist regime which, unfortunately, has power today. By Allah's favor and grace, this [end of the Zionists regime] will definitely happen in the not-too-distant future – one cannot set a date for this time to come, it will happen. And when it happens, Muslim nations will manage to achieve unity in the region, God willing.
