'Resistance Forces In U.S': Iran's Supreme Leader Lauds Students Protesting For Palestinians

In a dramatic and provocative letter, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei addressed American university students on Thursday, commending their "defense of the Palestinian people" amidst a surge of pro-Palestinian protests on U.S. campuses. His message, "Do not oppress and do not be oppressed," came at a time of heightened tensions and safety concerns for Jewish students. Khamenei's letter, released during a wave of campus protests demanding a ceasefire in Gaza and divestment from companies with ties to Israel, criticised the U.S. government's support for Israel. He framed the students' activism as part of a larger "Resistance Front" against Zionist oppression, calling Israel's treatment of Palestinians a continuation of "decades of genocide and apartheid." He declared, "As the page of history is turning, you are standing on the right side of it." #Iran #SupremeLeader #AliKhamenei #USProtests #Gaza #Palestine #StudentProtests #CampusActivism #FreePalestine #Resistance #HumanRights #MiddleEastConflict #GlobalSolidarity #Peace #Justice
