Call for Papers; Iran’s top unity body invites thinkers to share view
The World Forum for Proximity of the Islamic Schools of Thought is to mount the 32ndedition of the International Conference on the theme of “Quds, Axis of Unity among Muslim Ummah”; Iran top unity body kindly requests religious thinkers and elites to submit their papers in line with the themes of the conference, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
The thirty-second round of the international conference on Islamic unity will be held under the blessings of the Almighty Allah in Tehran during 24 and 26 November, 2018 by the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought concurrent with the Week of Unity and the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and his noble grandson Imam Jafar Sadeq (AS).
The theme of this year’s conference focuses on Quds as the axis of unity among the Muslim Ummah. This clearly indicates that the Muslim Ummah should focus its main efforts on finding solutions for the challenges faced by Palestine. This puts heavy responsibilities on the shoulders of the Islamic Ummah.
There is no doubt that the occupation of Palestine in the hands of a group of racist and bloodthirsty criminals is the biggest catastrophe the world of Islam is suffering from. This occupation is the main reason behind crises, conflicts, division and underdevelopment of Palestine as well as the displacement, killing and destruction of the houses of Palestinians.
On these days, the critical and landmark issue of Palestine is experiencing its hardest moments as the great nation of Palestine has risen up once again to continue its return rallies and intifada and will not back down from their right of return to the occupied territories.
No one except Zionists would deny the right to return for Palestinians as it is the legitimate and lawful right of Palestinians, as per international resolutions, to return to their homeland which should be enforced.
The people of Palestine persist in demanding their rights by presenting convoys of martyrs and wounded. This would not continue unless all the world’s freedom seekers rise side by side with the Palestinians and support their right of return rallies. Therefore, the Muslim world shoulders a heavy and tremendous responsibility.
On the other hand, the Americans and Zionists have intensified, through the so-called “deal of the century”, their efforts to put a cap on the righteous demands of the people of Palestine for freedom and return. If God forbidden this “deal” is brokered—which will never happen—it will result in the humiliation and disgrace of the whole Middle East while all the rights of Palestinians will be seized and their territories abandoned. In this case, Zionists would dominate the destiny and fate of Palestinians.
In order to prepare the ground for such a treasonous deal, the United States arrogantly relocated its embassy to the occupied Quds in spite of the strong opposition of the Muslim and non-Muslim states. Shortly after such a heinous act, the Knesset of the Zionist regime approved a law whereby the right to self-determination is only given to the Jews in Palestine. This racist law is even unique among all the past racist regimes that have joined the dustbin of history.
We are confident that the fate of this racist and atrocious regime is sealed to the destiny of the previous inhumane regimes and the sacrifice and courage of the people of Palestine in the right of return rallies under the practical, scientific, mental and political support of the world’s freedom seekers would ultimately lead to the extinction of Israel in view of the rightfulness and fairness of the cause of the Palestinian resistance.
Under such circumstances, the Conference on Islamic Unity would focus its attention on the issue of Quds, the right of return rallies and the Zionist atrocities against the first Qiblah and the third holiest place for Muslims. The upcoming conference shall be held in Iran which, during the past four decades, has made all its efforts to support Palestinians and has been therefore exposed to numerous pressures and plots. And say, “Do as you will, for Allah will see your deeds, and so, will His Messenger and the believers (9:105).
