|Gaza war animates Iranian leadership: CNN||
TEHRAN – In an article published on the CNN website on August 1, the authors say that Israel’s ongoing military operation in Gaza has animated the leadership in Tehran.
It adds that the bloody conflict, and the global Muslim outrage it has provoked, is held by the Iranian government as a chance to redeem itself in the eyes of the Sunni Muslim majority in the world.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei this week called on the “Muslim Nation” to set aside differences and unite against Israel, the article says. Other Muslim leaders speak in such terms. The difference is Iran has the capacity to militarily make a difference by resuming arms supplies to Hamas.
Iran and Hezbollah can deliver weapons and military know-how, something that other Hamas backers -- such as Qatar and Turkey -- are unable or unwilling to do, the article adds.
