The advisor to the Iranian foreign minister, Sheikh Hussein Al-Islam, has said the relationship between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Hamas is excellent and has become stronger and more solid.

“Anything Hamas requests from Iran will be given. This is our duty,” Sheikh Al-Islam said in an exclusive interview with Shehab News Agency.

“All of Iran’s doors are open to Hamas which represents the first line of defence for the Palestinian resistance,” he said.

Commenting on Israel’s demand that Hamas sever ties with Iran as a precondition to accept Palestinian reconciliation, Sheikh Al-Islam said that “Israel wants to destroy Hamas because it is a resistance movement, not because of its relationship with Iran”.

“Hamas’s relationship with Iran is not important, the important thing is that Hamas is a resistance movement, and therefore Israel wants to wipe it out,” he said, adding that the movement makes its own decisions and that Iran does not tell Hamas what to do or not do.

The Iranian official praised the Palestinian national reconciliation, stressing that the agreement serves the Palestinian people’s interests.

Recently a Hamas delegation led by deputy political chief Saleh Al-Arouri visited Iran and met with a number of Iranian officials.

  1. It is said(incorrectly) that Iran want’s to ‘wipe Israel off the Map'( a LIE propagated and spread by Israel), but it is perfectly clear to even a casual observer that Israel’s goal is to wipe Palestine off the map, so, is it any wonder that Iran will stand by the Palestinians(when no one else seems willing to do, particularly, “The World’s Policeman”).

    It’s no wonder that The World’s Policeman has turned a blind eye to the plight of the Palestinians…..Just have a look at how the American police are shooting American citizens dead in the Streets of America……..
