While reactionary Arab regimes are slavishly serving American interests and dallying with Israel against fellow Muslims, especially against the Islamic Republic of Iran, the illegal Zionist regime is freely terrorizing the sons of the soil, that is, the Palestinians, and desecrating their religious sanctities.
This is not the first time the illegal Jewish migrants to Occupied Palestine are desecrating the sanctity of Islam’s former "Qibla” (direction of prayer), the al-Aqsa Mosque.
According to reports, on Tuesday morning, at least 300 Zionists entered the sacred compound from the Moroccan Gate. Except for Fridays and Saturdays, these illegal settlers violate the mosque in the morning and in the afternoon on a daily basis.
The Arab leaders as we all had expected, have chosen to remain silent on the daily violation of al-Aqsa Mosque. Either they are in a slumber or pretending to be asleep by closing their eyes regarding this important issue. Or, maybe they don’t want to hurt their newfound Zionist cousins, and don’t want to ruin their family kinship (in the case of Aal-e Saud).
It is rather unfortunate that except for words of denunciation no concrete steps are expected from the Muslim World to stop the current phase of sacrilege in the occupied Islamic city of Bayt al-Moqaddas – which the U.S. president, Donald Trump, criminally calls the capital of Israel and has relocated the American embassy there.
We all have sympathy for the Palestinian Muslims. We strongly condemn the desecration of the al-Aqsa mosque.
We in the Islamic Republic of Iran have always called for effective steps, not just lip service, for materialization of the rights of the people of Palestine, as well as of all other oppressed nations.
On Monday, in Belgrade, Speaker of the Iranian parliament, Dr. Ali Larijani, during a meeting with Secretary-General Martin Chungong of the Inter-parliamentary Union (IPU), highlighted the significance of the Palestine, calling on this international body to serve as the clear voice of the Palestinian nation amid the challenges facing them.
Remember what the Father of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (RA), had said: "If every Muslim around the globe were to pour a bucket of water, the cancerous tumour called Israel will definitely drown.”
So better late than never. It is time for the brains, active minds and conscientious persons of the Muslim World to coordinate efforts for the eventual end of Israel, and then only the desecration of Islamic sanctities will end in Palestine.
