The Jewish community in Tehran started their anti-Israeli rallies on the international Quds Day in front of Abrishami synagogue, this morning.
In Isfahan, Jews started their rallies from Keter David synagogue. In Shiraz, the minority group joined the rallies from the main gate of the Association of the Jews of Shiraz, and in Kermanshah, they started the rally from the main synagogue of the city.
In a statement on Thursday, representative of the Iranian Jewish community at the parliament Siamak Mareh Sedq underlined Jews’ participation in the International Quds Day rallies on Friday, saying that the Palestinian nation will soon be liberated from the occupation of Israel.
“Jewish Iranians consider participation in Quds Day rallies as a national and religious responsibility… all walks of the honorable Iranian nation obey the orders of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei) and will shout slogans against the US and Israeli occupiers in a united and integrated manner,” Mareh Sedq said.
He added that full liberation of Quds and Palestine is close, noting that the resistance front will soon celebrate its victory.
Mareh Sedq called on all monotheists, specially the Jewish people, across the world to participate in the International Quds Day rallies in their countries to show opposition to Zionism.
The International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Israel’s occupation of Beitul-Muqaddas. Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world, specially in Iran, as well as a large number of non-Muslim states.
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.
