Iran concludes Palestine conference, pats itself on the back

This touches on a number of the current popular topics for Khomeinist pronouncements: Sudan, the Saudis, Iran's "centerpiece" role of the "world of Islam," but above all, the Zionist entity:
Tehran's provisional Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami lauded the positive results of an international conference held in the Iranian capital to support the Palestinians, and called it a successful move.

The international conference dubbed 'Palestine: Manifestation of Resistance, Gaza: Victim of Crimes', held 4-5 March in Tehran, brought together legal experts, politicians and religious leaders to Tehran to focus on Gaza's reconstruction and Israeli war crimes.

The Tehran conference showed that Iran is the centerpiece of the world of Islam and is passionately focusing on the world's oppressed people, Ayatollah Khatami reiterated, while addressing large and fervent congregation of worshipers on Tehran University Campus here on Friday.
Iran's way of "focusing" on Sudan's considerable share of "the world's oppressed people" is to express support for their oppressor. See below.
Ayatollah Khatami also praised the measures adopted by the Iranian judiciary system for prosecuting the Zionist regime of Israel for its crimes in the occupied territories and Gaza.

Iran said on Thursday that it would present the Interpol with a list of names of over 100 Israeli commanders and officials who had committed war crimes in the recent 22-day onslaught against Gaza.

"A fresh list of the Zionist criminals who played a role in the genocide of the Palestinian people has been compiled which will be gradually presented to the Interpol for legal action after each case is completed," Iranian Prosecutor General Saeed Mortazavi told reporters on Thursday on the sidelines of the 4th international conference on support for Palestine.

Elsewhere, Ayatollah Khatami condemned the arrest warrant issued by the Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC) against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.

"The ICC arrest warrant issued against the Sudanese president testifies the instrumental use of international bodies (by the western powers)," Ayatollah Khatami said.

He said the warrant is among the bizarre events of the present age.

Ayatollah Khatami also called on Saudi Arabia to mobilize the world of Islam against Israel instead of focusing on issues which would undermine Muslim solidarity.
