To the Islamic Republic of Iran, the security and wellbeing of Palestine is not just a security concern, rather, it is more a matter of principle since Jerusalem is considered to be sacred and hallowed ground by all followers of the Abrahamic religions.
Jerusalem has been kept secure by Palestinians since the dawn of the Abrahamic religions, . And now for non-Palestinian, fellow-Arabs, to just hand it over to already-occupying Zionist Israelites, is beyond insufferable. It doesn’t work for the Palestinians, it doesn’t work for Iran, and it certainly doesn’t work for a predominantly Muslim Arab middle-east or west Asia.
What are the options for Palestine?
The best solution, when something has been seized from you, would be its peaceful repossession, failing this, as the Leader of The Islamic Republic of Iran so sagaciously put it, holding a referendum in Palestine in which all parties concerned would have a say in the kind of governance they wish to have.
If this option doesn’t work there would be no other choice than war and resistance. Someone has stolen a title deed from you. If by using a peaceful language and using political means you get nothing you will have a third solution, which would be to fight for the deed. That is the solution for Palestine.

After WWII, Europe passed its Jewish problem on to Palestine, in effect, establishing a military base for the West and a homeland for the so-called Jews.
In order for this to come to fruition, villages were demolished and Palestinians slaughtered, driven out or fenced in, in their own homes.
