"Israel is not a country; rather it is a terrorist camp against the Palestinian people and the rest of the Muslim Ummah. Fighting this despotic regime is fighting oppression and terrorism, and this is a collective responsibility.”
This was the gist of yesterday’s memorable message of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution on the occasion of the annual World Qods Day, which over the past decades has evolved into a humanitarian resolve of all conscientious people for the eventual weeding out of the illegal Zionist entity from the face of the Earth.
Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, whose 25-year deadline for the end of Israel set several years is fast approaching for the eagerly awaited Day of Destiny for the oppressed Palestinian people and the whole Islamic world, pointed out to realities that expose as totally baseless the claims of the West in having planted Israel for East European non-Semitic Khazar Jews on the myth of the holocaust.
He rightly remarked: "Today, hope of achieving victory is stronger than ever. Today, the balance of power has swung in favour of the Palestinians. The Zionist enemy has become weaker year after year while its army, which used to describe itself as "invincible”, has turned into "a force that never tastes victory” after its debacle in the 33-day war in Lebanon (2006) and its bitter experiences in the 22-day and 8-day wars (in Gaza in the following years).”
The Corona pandemic sweeping Iran and the world may have for the moment prevented the Iranian masses from taking to the streets on Qods Day to declare the support for the goal of the liberation of Palestine, but it has not dampened their support and activities – both diplomatic and on the field – for confronting the crimes against humanity of the Zionists.
With Iran’s peaceful proposal for a referendum to resolve the chronic question of Occupied Palestine ignored by the UN and the powers that control it, especially the satanic US, it is clear that diplomacy has utterly failed for the single state solution and the orderly exit of all European, American, and Russian Jews from Palestine.
The only option is to mobilize forces on the field for the coup-de-grace, as was done eight centuries ago in 1187 to liberate Palestine from the usurper Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem by a united army of Turks, Kurds, Arabs, and Iranians.
This may happen sooner than later and neither the blind support of the western powers for Israel nor the treason of the Arab regimes will be able to avert the inevitable, thanks to the sacred blood of the martyrs, especially of the Martyr of Qods, General Qassem Soleimani (to quote Hamas Leader, Ismail Haniyeh), who has well paved the ground for the final victory.
Glory to the soul of the Father of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (RA), who while designating the Last Friday of the Fasting Month of Ramadhan as World Qods Day, had rightly said that the arousing of Muslim conscience worldwide for the cause of al-Aqsa Mosque, Bayt al-Moqaddas, and all of Palestine is the prelude to the grand operation for weed out the cancerous tumour called Israel.
