Supreme Leader’s Aide: Islamic Ummah to Show Might against Powers in Int’l Quds Day
Supreme Leader’s top adviser for international affairs Ali Akbar Velayati stressed that Muslims will display their power and might to the enemies and oppressor powers by their massive turnout in the International Quds Day rallies on Friday.
“Today, unfortunately the enemies of Islam and Muslims have attempted to downplay over a century of innocence of Gaza and Palestine by creating terrorist and Takfiri groups and committing crimes against the oppressed and defenseless people of the region in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, … but they are unaware that they (the Muslims) have stood and will gain victory over enemies of Islam, specially the Zionist regime, through resistance and support of the resistance pivot and will disturb the enemies’ dreams,” Velayati said in a statement on the occasion of the International Quds Day rallies on Thursday.
He invited all Muslims, including the Iranian people, to massively participate in the International Quds Day rallies.
The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.
International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Israel’s occupation of Beitul-Muqaddas.
Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held every year on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world, and specially in Iran.
