TEHRAN (FNA) The results of the visit to the region by US President George Bush manifested themselves in no time, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said during a phone conversation with a Hamas official in the wake of a massacre of Palestinians by the Israeli regime in Gaza.
Mottaki expressed his condolences to Mahmoud al-Zahar on the martyrdom of a number of Palestinians, including al-Zahar’s son.
“The results of Bush’s visit to the region revealed so soon. The supports he extended (to the Zionist regime) before he left the region led to the resumption of the Zionist regime’s criminal acts in Gaza,” he said.
He further wished patience and tolerance for the Palestinian leader, and said, “Martyrdom of the children of the leaders of a resistance movement indicates their popularity, something which guarantees victory.”
The Palestinian leader, for his part, appreciated Mottaki’s contact, and said all those accompanying the US are Washington’s accomplices and should account for their acts before the Islamic Ummah (nation).
Al-Zahar also praised Iran’s all-out support for the struggles of the Palestinian nation, and said, “My child is like all other martyrs Hamas movement and Palestinian nation have presented for securing victory.”
