Addressing a group of visitors, Ayatollah Khamenei said, "Hegemonic powers try to obliterate major historic events from the memory of world nations using two tricks of forgetfulness and distortion.
The Supreme Leader referred to the forceful evacuation of the Palestinians from their homeland by Zionists and the bravery of the Iranian forces during the eight years of Iraq's imposed war (1980-88) as two major contemporary historic events.
"Any historic event can be damaged by two major elements of forgetfulness and distortion. The world's arrogant powers are bent on making world public opinion gradually forget how the Palestinians were forced to leave their cities and villages in an unprecedented plot.
"Using the element of forgetfulness, the hegemonic system is trying to make the issue of Palestine be gradually disappeared and forgotten from the memory of world nations," said the Supreme Leader.
Ayatollah Khamenei added despite arrogant powers' conspiracies in the past years, the cause of Palestine has been kept alive thanks to the Islamic Revolution and sincere support of the late Imam Khomeini."
The Supreme Leader urged elites and scholars to prevent hegemonic powers from erasing the memory of world nations.
In February 2012, Ayatollah Khamenei categorically denied Iran's interference in Bahrain, but meantime stressed Iran's direct involvement in the Palestinian and Lebanese confrontation against Israel, including the Lebanese Summer 2006 33-day resistance against the Zionist regime.
"Wherever Iran interferes, it announces it in a very straightforward manner. For instance, we interfered in confrontations against Israel, which resulted in the (Lebanese) victory in the 33-day war and (Palestinians' victory in) the 22-day (Gaza) war," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing millions of Friday Prayers worshippers on Tehran University Campus.
"In future too, we will support and help everyone who opposes the Zionist regime," the Leader underscored.
"The Zionist regime is a real cancerous tumor that should be cut and will be cut, God Willing," Ayatollah Khamenei underscored.
