Molazehi: Quds Day is an Important Event for Islamic Republic of Iran
Iranian political commentator, Pir Mohammad Molazehi, says Quds Day is an important event for Islamic Republic of Iran, in which the country declares its support for Palestine and Jihadist groups fighting for the freedom of their motherlands.
“Over the past few years, U.S. government has managed to hold a number of meetings between the representatives of Jihadist groups and Israeli government. But the two sides failed to reach an agreement over the subject of Palestine.” Pir Mohammad Molazehi said in an interview with state-owned TV channel on Tuesday.
“Officials of Islamic Republic of Iran believe that the people of Palestine should make decision about their future. However, Israeli army displaces Palestine nationals from their homes and lands. This has made Islamic Republic of Iran to support Jihadist groups.” Molazehi added. In 2012, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Kahmenei expressed his support for Palestine-based paramilitary forces.
Pir Mohammad Molazehi went on to say that commemorating Quds Day will keep Muslims and people from all over the world informed about the on-going crisis in Palestine. “Promoting this event is very important for Islamic Republic of Iran and other Islamic states in the Middle East region. Quds Day plays an important role in motivating Muslims to support Islamic movements of Palestine.”
“Recently, Israeli government has failed to pursue its hostile policies against the innocent people of Palestine. Islamic groups of Palestine have granted international recognition, so they can put pressure on Israel via international courts and organizations.” Pir Mohammad Molazehi concluded.
It is good to mention that International Quds Day is an annual event that began in Iran in 1979. This event is commemorated on the last Friday of Ramadan, expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people and opposing Israel’s control of Jerusalem.
