Palestinians' strong resistance has completely dispirited Zionists, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday. Ahmadinejad told Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal during a meeting between the two that the Palestinians and Lebanese had emerged victorious due to their determination, state-controlled Press TV reported. "The Iranian nation and government will continue to support the Palestinian nation," he added. Mashaal said that Palestinians would never cease to resist Israel's "illegal regime," which he said was on the brink of extinction. Earlier, Mashaal met with Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who also congratulated him on his fight against Israel, and said the Jewish nation was helpless in the face of the Palestinian struggle.
