Iran Gloats

As you probably already know, Israel has announced a unilateral cease-fire as Hamas rocket fire continues. Let's see what the regime sponsoring Hamas has to say (click to enlarge):

According to IRIB:
Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei wrote a message Friday to Ismail Haniya, the Premier of the Gaza-based legitimate Palestinian government about the defeat and disgrace of the equipped army of the Zionist regime in the face of the "patience, bravery and sacrifice" of the valiant combatants and the innocent people of Gaza.

Ayatollah Khamenei in the message praised that the dignified perseverance of the Gaza people against one of the most atrocious war crimes in history helped discredit America, the supporters of the Zionist regime and the traitors and hypocrites in the Islamic Ummah.
And that's just the intro to the Ayatollah's message, which includes the following:
The Arab traitors would rather realize that their fate would not go better than that of the Jews in the war of confederates (early in Islam) for whom the Almighty said 'And He brought down those of the People of the Book who supported them from their fortresses' (The Confederates: 26).
A Mehr News headline proclaims: "Secret deal for Gaza war backfires":
The resistance in Gaza has made defending the oppressed a universal value in contrast to Israel’s false claims about the Jews’ oppression during the Holocaust. And with the revelation of the Zionist regime’s genocide in Gaza, now their crimes have been documented by hundreds of the world’s media outlets.

Israel and its supporters have been humiliated in the eyes of the world and independent media outlets’ coverage of the Gaza conflict has revealed the censorship of the realities by the U.S. and Israel media.
Iran's Press TV had a headline on Thursday that read "Hamas: Victory is within arms reach." A current headline reads "Israel set to swallow defeat in Gaza." They cite international pressure:
Gazan resistance and the world condemnation of Israeli crimes against Palestinians -- the native population of the land -- are seen as the primary reasons for Israel backtracking on its previously set goals.
Elsewhere, the Guardian worries: "Can Hamas still walk tall in Gaza's streets?" Iran thinks so, obviously, or their propaganda does. The Palestinian press is not so uniformly triumphant since some of it is pro-Fatah. See EOZ's "PalArab press roundup."
