The Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, greeted him. As Iran's FARS news agency reports:
"I am very optimistic about the future of Palestine and believe that Israel is moving on the precipice of wane and demise, and God willing its annihilation is for sure," Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement Ramadan Abdullah Shallah here in Tehran.But...I thought that Sunnis and Shiites hate each other!
Elsewhere, Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the attempts made by certain Arab governments to help the Zionist regime, and said these attempts are certainly doomed to failure as the Muslim nations always support the Palestinian cause.
Abdullah, for his part, admired the Iranian nation's vigilance against enemies' plots, and said, "Today the Islamic Republic of Iran is experiencing its best conditions and is in its strongest position."
"Everyone honors the righteous positions of Iran," he reiterated.
"Certainly the right will be victorious," he added.
I guess when they hate a third party enough, they can set aside their differences in a wonderful show of unity and love.
They should thank Israel for providing them with such an opportunity.
