The International Quds Day Rallies this year witnessed a stronger and wider public turnout in all the world countries.
Millions of people took part in the International Quds Day rallies in solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian people today.
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.
Demonstrators in Tehran and hundreds of other Iranian cities in a resolution condemned the Zionist regime’s oppression of the Palestinians and supported Palestinians’ resistance for liberating their territories from the Israeli occupation.
“We Iranians as a united and integrated nation see liberation of the Holy Quds, rescuing the oppressed and defenseless Palestinian nation from the dominance of the fake Zionist regime and efforts aimed at eliminating the cancerous tumor of Israel as the noble cause of the Islamic Revolution, the strategy of the late Imam Khomeini and his successor, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and the first priority of the Muslim World and the only way to confront the illegitimate and criminal Zionist regime,” part of the statement said.
The Iranian demonstrators voiced their support for anti-Israel resistance, and underlined the need for the return of all Palestinian refugees to their country from remote parts of the world and holding an all-inclusive and free referendum to determine the future of their country.
“We consider any other solution as a prescription for compromise and a trick to help the fake Israeli regime to continue its devilish life,” the demonstrators said.
They said that unity, convergence and integrity of the Palestinian groups against the Zionist regime is one of the most crucial contributors and necessity for the liberation of the Holy Quds and expulsion of the Zionist occupiers from the Palestinian territories.
The resolution also voiced their permanent strong support for the Palestinians’ popular uprising, the Intifada, and the path of resistance, and strongly condemned Israel’s Judaization of the occupied territories and efforts to destroy the national and historical identity of Palestine, lamenting that the Israelis’ judaization agenda is unfortunately being pursued due to the silence and absolute negligence of the international bodies that claim to be advocating the rights of the nations.
The Iranian demonstrators described unity and solidarity among the Palestinian groups against the Zionist regime as one of the most important necessities for the freedom of the holy Quds.
The resolution called on the international organizations and bodies to halt the continuation of such dangerous plots through taking resolute and practical measures.
The Iranian demonstrators voiced their support for the armies and popular forces of Syria and Iraq, and condemned the proxy wars and savage crimes committed by the Salafi and Takfiri terrorist groups in the Muslim countries as well as the “devilish efforts made by the Saudi regime and some other regional countries to weaken the axis of resistance and ensure the security of the Zionists through support for terrorism and normalizing relation with the Quds Occupying Regime.
“We consider the Islamic resistance in the region that has frightened the hegemonic system and the Zionist regime with its victories and new achievements in Fallujah and Aleppo more than ever as the outcome of the prevalence of the discourse of revolution and Islamic resistance,” the resolution said.
The demonstrators said that the plots of the Takfiri-Salafi terrorists in Syria and Iraq are proxy wars of the arrogant powers and the outcome of a joint plot by the US and Israel as well as the regional reactionary currents to weaken the axis of Islamic resistance, fueling Islamophobia, confronting Islam and creating a rift among Muslims.
“We ask the Muslim Ummah to defuse the enemy’s objectives and strategies by maintaining their unity and Islamic solidarity as well as strengthening the front formed against violence and fratricide,” the resolution added.
The Iranian demonstrators also called on the world Muslims not to allow the enemies of Islam to distract their attention from the issue of the Holy Quds and Palestine through their targeted problem-makings.
“We, as the united Iranian nation, condemn the Al Saud war against Yemen and the savage killing of the oppressed and Muslim nation of Yemen and also Saudi Arabia’s partnership with the Al Khalifa regime in oppressing and committing crimes against the people of Bahrain as well as stripping (that country’s prominent Shiite leader) Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim of his citizenship right, which unfortunately took place under the silence of the international bodies and the cruel support of the US rulers,” the resolution added.
The Iranian demonstrators also deplored the negligence, disrespect and lack of action of the Saudi regime in the last year’s Hajj pilgrimage which resulted in the death of thousands of Hajj pilgrims, including Iranians and also depriving the Iranian pilgrims from the Hajj rituals this year.
