Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that US President Donald Trump’s proposed Israel-Palestine peace deal, the so called ‘Deal of the Century,'”will never get off the ground,” while leading Eid al-Fitr prayers at Tehran’s Imam Khomeini Grand Prayer Grounds on Wednesday.
Khamenei criticised Bahrain for agreeing to host an upcoming summit where the Trump administration is reportedly set to reveal the details of its proposal, dubbing it “a great treachery to the Islamic world.”
“We hope that the Bahraini and Saudi rulers realise what a quagmire they are stepping in and what damages this will so to their future,” he added.
He also commented that “The goal of this summit is to set up America’s wrongful, treacherous and evil scheme for Palestine, which they [Americans] have called ‘the Deal of the Century’.”
Many Palestinian groups, alongside the United Nations, will boycott the event, while Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates announced their participation to the summit scheduled in Bahrain’s capital Manama on June 25-26.
Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and lasts 29-30 days. Muslims observe it as a time of fasting during the day, and it is regarded as one of the five pillars of Islam.

By Noam Chomsky and Ilan Pappé
Operation Protective Edge, Israel’s most recent assault on Gaza, left thousands of Palestinians dead and cleared the way for another Israeli land grab.
The need to stand in solidarity with Palestinians has never been greater. Noam Chomsky and Ilan Pappé, two leading voices in the struggle to liberate Palestine, discuss the road ahead for Palestinians and how the international community can pressure Israel to end its human rights abuses against the people of Palestine.
This urgent and timely book offers hope and a way forward for all those committed to the struggle to liberate Palestine.
On Palestine is the sequel to Chomsky and Pappé’s acclaimed book Gaza in Crisis.
