Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Muslims today are obliged to fight Israel with whatever means they have as he calls Palestine the foremost issue of the Islamic world.

“According to Islamic jurisprudence, when an enemy takes over Muslim lands, Jihad in any possible form becomes everyone's duty," the Leader told Muslim ambassadors in Tehran Monday during a meeting on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.

“Today the fight against the Zionist regime is obligatory and necessary for Muslims. Why do some evade this duty?” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

The Leader touched on the ongoing conflicts in Yemen, Syria, Iraq and North Africa, warning of the "great danger of consigning the Palestinian issue to oblivion."

“Palestine is the number one issue of the Islamic world, but some Islamic countries are acting in such a way as to have the Palestinian case ignored and forgotten."
