Israeli tanks, troops enter Gaza

Israeli ground forces have crossed the border with the Gaza Strip, starting a new phase of Operation Cast Lead, an army spokeswoman says.

Major Avital Leibovitch, the spokeswoman, said the Israeli army aims to take control of some areas in the coastal sliver.

“The objective is to destroy the Hamas terror infrastructure in the area of operations,” she was quoted by Reuters as saying.

Witnesses said the forces entered the beleaguered region from the north. The incursion follows the heavy bombing and shelling of the Gaza Strip on Saturday.

At least 460 Palestinians have been killed since the start of the offensive, while some 2,300 others are reported wounded.

In retaliation to the attacks, the Hamas movement has continued its attacks launch from the Gaza Strip. Six people have been killed and 18 wounded in retaliatory rocket fire by Hamas.

The strip has been under an Israeli blockade since the Hamas movement won a majority in the 2006 Palestinian election and took control of the area in mid-June 2007.

Islamic Revolution Leader issued a statement Sunday on the horrendous tragedy of Gaza bloodbath in the hand of the Zionists

Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei issued a statement Sunday on the horrendous tragedy of Gaza bloodbath in the hand of the Zionists, strongly condemning the heinous complicity of the criminal Bush’s regime with the Zionists, adding that the silence of some international bodies and some Arab states provided for the crimes.

Ayatollah Khamenei declared Monday as day of general mourning and called on all Muslim people and free men of the world to render their duty towards the tragic issue. The text of the statement is as follows.

Bismillah-e Rahman-e Rahim

“We belong to Allah, and to Him we return”

The horrific atrocity of the Zionist regime in Gaza in which hundreds of innocent men, women and children were massacred pushed the curtain of deception from the blood thirsty face of the Zionist wolves and noted the negligent about the presence of this warring infidel  in the heart of the lands of Islamic umma.

The horrendous ordeal is very heavy and moving for any Muslim not to say for any free and noble human being in any corner of the world. However, the larger ordeal is the encouraging silence of some Arab governments which claim to be Muslims. Which ordeal could be larger than the fact that Muslim governments, otherwise expected to support the innocent Gaza people against the usurping and hostile regime, adopted a mood which encouraged the criminal Zionist authorities to impertinently consider them as in harmony with the large tragedy?

Which answer the heads of those countries have prepared to give to the Messenger of Allah (S.A.)? Which answer they have prepared to give to their own nations which are indeed mourning the tragedy? Indeed today the heart of the Egyptian, Jordanian and the people of other Islamic countries is overwhelmed with sorrow about the bloodshed as well as the protracted food and medicine embargos.

By his complicity in the large crime, the criminal Bush’s administration in the last days of his shameful rule more darkened the face of the American regime than ever and added to its dossier of war crimes. The European governments with their indifference and sometimes their complicity in the large tragedy once more proved that their claims of advocacy for human rights are false and also showed they are present in the front against Islam and Muslims. Now, I ask the scholars and Alims of the Arab world and the chiefs of the Egyptian al-Azhar center “isn’t it the time to feel the threat facing Islam and Muslims?” “Isn’t it the time to fulfill the mandatory act of standing against any bullying ruler?” Is an additional, more divulging scene of complicity between the warring infidels and the hypocrites of umma in repressing the Muslims than the current Gaza and Palestine developments is needed to prompt you to feel responsibility?

I have also a question to ask the media and the intellectuals of the world of Islam and especially the Arab world. For how long you have decided to remain indifferent regarding your media and intellectual responsibility?

Has there remained any more face for the scandal-hit human rights bodies of the west and the so-called ’security’ council of the United Nations to lose?

All the Palestinian Mujahid and other faithful of the world of Islam are supposed to defend the defenseless people of Gaza. Anyone who is killed in the legitimate and holy defense is a martyr and is hoped to be among the ranks of the martyrs of Badr and Ohud battles in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (S.A.).

The Organization of the Islamic Conference must fulfill its historical responsibility in the sensitive conditions and form a solid front, bereft of inaction and reservations, against the Zionist regime. The Zionist regime must be punished by the Muslim governments. The heads of the usurping regime must be tried and punished in person for their crimes and the protracted siege.

The Muslim nations are able to materialize the demands through firm resolve. The duty of politicians, Alims and intellectuals in this juncture is much heavier than others.

I declare Monday a day of general mourning in commemoration of the Gaza tragedy and instruct the country’s authorities to fulfill their duties regarding the sad incident.

“And those who do wrong shall surely know by what overturning they will be overturned”

Sayyed Ali Khamenei
December 28, 2008

First Statement: English

In the name of God the compassionate, the merciful


Gaza, a city in Palestine with over 1.5 million populations, has been besieged by Zionist usurper forces for a long time. Gaza’s oppressed and wronged people are now in their worst situation and are deprived of first needs of living. For which reasons? Why Zionist forces don’t allow any necessary thing to come to Gaza strip? Only because its people are supporting Hamas? About two years ago, Palestinians voted Hamas to be the ruling power to their country. Is this a big fault? One of the greatest human disasters of several decades is happening and international associations are in complete silence and strangulation.

To international associations:

<!--[endif]-->You always make resolutions even for the least word on history forged by Zionist forces and don’t even allow any scientific work to be done on how these Zionist forces were made. You who always make resolutions on small problems of
independent countries like Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Afghanistan! You who always talk about human rights and the need to have human rights … aren’t it the right time to open your eyes and see the realities? Haven’t you seen the bullet which has gone into a suckling baby’s stomach? Speaking the truth, for what sins have they been killed? Don’t you see the tears of oppressed mothers and children of Gaza who are crying for their fathers, husbands, brothers, sisters and mothers?
Believe that your acting will be kept in nation’s historical memory, and no longer will be disintegrated because of this partisan acting of yours and a new system will be ruled over international associations. A kind of system based upon justice and human rights, which you have never heard anything about it.

To Arabian governments:Arab Government

What has become to you? You’re crying for Arabs to be united has made the world deaf. Why are you so silent about Zionists’ weak and absurd crimes? Aren’t Palestinians and people of Gaza of the same race and religion and gender of yours? Is it wrong that people of Gaza, themselves, chose Hamas? So why some of you Arabian governments, along with western cruel governments have boycotted Hamas and are supporting surrounding Gaza in Hinder? When are you going to wake up? When are you going to take yourself out of cruelty? You must know that an Islamic vigilance is taking up and if you don’t correct yourself, without any doubt, would be taken away by your own nation and Islamic governments will be ruling your country. Come with this crowd of Muslims of the whole world before it drowns you …

To Hosni Mobarak and its regime in Egypt:hosni mobarak

Your situation is really critical. Don’t you remember Anvar Sadat? Have forgotten that his chest was opened by Muslim fighter martyr Khalid eslamboli? Why don’t you learn a lesson from those before you? Haven’t they gone around the world to see what happened to those who were before them? Can’t you open Passage of Rafah to your fellows? You can do but the fear of Zionists and American government and devoting to them has made you unable to do this. So know that your falling is soon.

To you Hosni Mobarak ruling to Egypt for 27 years and have make a dictatorship for yourself. We warn you that the ending of pharaonics and coptics would be nothing but death and suffering. And what fires and tortures are made ready for them in futurity. So, either change your route or wait for revolutions of Khalid Eslambolis and what
a bad fate is waiting for you if you do so.

 To Zionists regime:

What have Gaza’s people done to you? Isn’t it right that they just want life and voting right? So, why don’t you respect their primitive right? Is it lawful that you don’t allow any food packages like milk powder and meat and etc. to enter to Gaza strip? What fault and crime have Palestinian children done that they have to lose life because of the lack of food and sanitation? Do you stand this kind of violence on children? You who claimhuman rights, why do you reject the rights of Palestinians and residents of Gaza strip?

To Arab people and world’s Muslims:

We say this to ourselves and all the Muslims all over the world: Stand Up. It’s time to answer Gaza’s call for help. Muslims of Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, African and European and south American countries, and Muslims of America ! We must unite and end surrounding of Gaza.

To Muslims of Gaza:

You, oppressed people of Gaza know that we Muslims of Iran and all over the world haven’t forgotten you and will not cease until complete breaking of the surrounding of your city. In the path along freedom of Gaza and our common value which is the freedom of Palestine, we will not cease and will go on…

And the last word:

Standing till the end…
