Union of the Islamic Students Associations in Europe has issued a statement calling on people in Iran and other countries to participate in demonstrations on Quds Day.
On the occasion of last Friday of holy month of Ramadan which marks International Day of Quds in solidarity with oppressed people of Palestine, Union of the Islamic Students Associations in Europe has communicated a statement expressing support for Palestinian Cause. Here is the full text of the statement:
In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
«As we stay up during the Night of Power and supplicate Allah to decide a good fate for us, let’s be vigilant and awake during the Day of Quds which serves as the Night of power for the history of Islam and let’s not give up saving the Muslim nations especially the brave and oppressed nation of Palestine till the Dawn breaks.»
«Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei, the Quds Day of 1997»
The last Friday of Ramadan (called as the Quds Day) is the Friday of resistance and campaign against the usurper Israel as a cancerous tumor for modern world. In this day, the fasting people of Iran who have spiritually purified themselves for a month demonstrate in the streets against the arrogant powers of the world concurrent with the other fasting Muslims of the world. This day of resistance and campaign is Imam Khomeini’s valuable legacy and it is the hope of the oppressed nations which is a mixture of the teachings of resistance and campaign against the arrogant powers.
Since the year 1948 when the Zionists invaded the Muslims and appropriated their properties and displaced thousands of people and established the usurper state of Israel till now, we have witnessed many cruel wars. Each one of them is a dark page in the history of the world arrogant powers and the Zionism and each one of them has led to the murder or displacement of millions of children together with men and women. The complicity of those claiming human rights in these crimes reveals their sinister and cruel intentions.
In order to dominate over the Middle East, Israel has used all means possible including warfare, threatening and cultural infiltration. After passage of many years, now we are witnessing that some seemingly Muslim states are following and supporting the Zionists in materializing their sinister intentions. They are good examples of modern «Abi Lahab» which has been mentioned in Quran.
The Islamic Iran is the standard-bearer of Islamic resistance in the world and campaign against the oppressing Zionists such that the Islamic resistance in the world has pinned hopes on it. The bold presence of the Iranian brave nation in the World Day of Quds and their slogans which are chanted against the arrogant powers is a re-voicing of support for the oppressed people of the world and hatred from the usurper Zionist regime and its supporters in the region.
We, the members of the «Union of Islamic Students Associations in Europe» commemorate the World Day of Quds and invite the noble nation of Iran especially the academicians and the students to attend the Quds Day demonstration. Along with the Iranian nation, we remake a covenant with the causes of the martyrs and their Imam in campaign against the world arrogant powers and support the oppressed people of Palestine till the day when the Holy Quds is liberated from the seizure of the usurpers.
Peace be upon those who follow the Guidance.
