Pandemic or any plague, Palestine’s liberation is the most avowed goal of the Islamic Ummah, which, whatever the circumstances, is determined to cure the region of the more dangerous virus called the Zionist entity.
This was evident yesterday, the last Friday of the blessed month of Ramadhan, when millions of Muslims marked the "World Qods Day” to mobilize public opinion to end the plight of the Palestinian people.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution in his message to the world made it clear that it is the obligation of all Muslims to contribute to efforts for liberation of Bayt al-Moqaddas and the al-Aqsa Mosque – the former qibla (focal point of prayers) of the Islamic Ummah.
Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in his speech on the occasion deplored the treason of certain so-called Muslim heads of state in betraying the Palestinian cause by trying to legitimize the illegitimate existence of Israel, on the orders of the Great Satan (US).
He, however, was fully confident that "the virus of Zionism will not last much longer and will be uprooted thanks to the determination, faith and pride of the youth”.
Since 1979, when the Father of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (RA), designated Jum’at-al-Weda or the last Friday of the Month of Fasting as Word Qods Day, rallies have been taking place all over the world, along with seminars and conferences in support of the Palestinian people and the Islamic issue of al-Aqsa.
This year as well, despite the precautionary measures of social distance against the spread of Covid-19, people from Indonesia to North Africa made a bonfire of the Israeli flags and torched effigies of the ringleaders of Zionist terrorism, along with that of Donald Trump, the notoriously criminal US president, who is an avowed enemy of Muslims, including the Palestinian people.
In some cities of the Muslim world people staged a novel protest, featuring a cavalcade of cars, holding aloft pictures of the al-Aqsa, while reaffirming their determination to root out from the region the cancerous tumour called Israel.
An interesting point to note is that this year the World Qods Day has coincided with the eve of the 38th anniversary of the historic liberation of the Iranian port city of Khorramshahr from the US-Zionist-supported repressive Ba’th minority regime of Saddam.
It is an indication of the auspicious events awaiting the Ummah, and the day will soon dawn when like the grand spectacle of Iranian combatants marching from several directions to liberate Khorramshahr on 23rd May 1982, Muslims of various countries of the world will join ranks in converging upon Bayt al-Moqaddas from various points to liberate al-Aqsa and the whole of Palestine.
This is not a daydream, but a reality steadily taking shape in the face of the most satanic plots of the US and its minions in the region to try to avert the inevitable.
There is no cause for despair. When in 1187, Turks, Kurds, Arabs, and Iranians, could join together to end the 88-year illegal existence of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem, there is no question why they, along with Africans, Indians, Africans, Indonesians, and even Europeans and Americans, cannot do it again.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has time and again emphasized a peace solution to the chronic question of Palestine. It is the democratic holding of a referendum under UN auspices by all original inhabitants of the land, whether Muslim, Christians, and Jews (but not the non-Semite illegal Zionist settlers from Europe) to determine one single country called Palestine, stretching from the borders of Lebanon in the north to the Sinai Peninsula in the south, and from the River Jordan in the east to the shores of the Mediterannean Sea in the west.
Any delay will indeed be disastrous for Zionist terrorists.
