On August 26, 2011, millions of people hit the streets in over 40 countries to show their solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian people. This event has been repeated every year since 1981 when the Leader of Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini, proclaimed the the last Friday of Muslim month of fasting as ‘International Al-Quds Day’. His vision of Palestine was an independent Palestinian State covering whole Palestine – from the Nile to the Forat River.
In Brazil, 150 elite, academic and citizen issued a statement asking their government to annul all contracts with the Zionist regime, expel all Israeli companies from Brazil and downgrade its relations with the Zionist regime.
As usual, the speeches by Iran’s President Dr. Ahmadinejad and Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, delivered on Al-Quds Day became the subjects of distortion and fear-mongering by the Zionist-controlled mainstream media which is busy cherning laughable lies about Libyan leader Qaddafi each day. Yesterday’s top jokes were; Qaddafi’s little adopted daughter declared killed as result of US bombing in 1988 – is alive and a top medical doctor in Tripoli! The rebels also found several pictures of AIPAC’s Black darling Condileeza Rice in Qaddafi’s room!
Iran’s President in his speech said that Zionist regime’s existence (not Jews) is not merely a threat to the Palestinian and the entire regional nations, rather its establishment and continued survival contrast interests, independence and dignity of all regional nations.
He said the prelude to establishment of the regime was lies and deception. “One of the big lies is the Holocaust (six million died) fable.”
President added that this comes as raising questions about the philosophy of Zionist regime’s creation carries a punishment of prison sentence in Europe in order to silence the vocal opponents.
“In the United States and Europe, political figures can be criticized under the right to freedom of expression. Nevertheless, it is considered an unforgivable sin should someone question the creation of the Zionist regime. He will be confronted in the most bizarre manner,” he pointed out.
President Ahmadinejad added that arrogant powers, soon after the World War I and II, came to the conclusion that they had to outsource their problems (the Jewish Problem), and to move their problems outside their borders. For that reason, they made a decision to create Zionist regime.
Ahmadinejad reiterated, “The oppressor powers were initially after stabilizing the Zionist regime at the entire land of Palestine, but they faced defeat in the process. Today they are tactically speaking of a two governments solution, and if the establishment of a Palestinian Government would be a step towards the liberation of the entire Palestine in the long run, the Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes this initiative.”
President Ahmadinejad emphasized, “Everyone must be ware that demanding freedom, justice and the right to choose their fates must be in line with countering oppression and the Zionist regime. A supporter of freedom and justice cannot be at peace with the Zionist regime, whose foundations are set on injustice, oppression, and limitation of liberties.”
The president reiterated, “The nations that are after achieving liberty and justice should not due to these demands ignore the need to counter the Zionist regime, or the hegemonic tendencies of the westerners, but on the contrary, these tendencies, too, must be further fortified in their movements.”
He stressed that Zionist regime is the cornerstone of all imperialist and anti-human powers. “The regime is the embodiment of all the characteristics of materialistic and capitalist powers in the West. It is the representation of all brutalities of the imperialist powers,” he went on to say.
Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah leader, Sheikh Nasrallah in his televised speech claimed that Lebanon has become ‘a trap for Israel’. He warned Lebanon’s enemies that Lebanon is no longer a weak point in the region and stressed there will never come a day when it become so.
Sheikh Nasrallah said the so-called UN Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) was politicized and stressed that everthing the STL issues is worth less.
He also warned that the situation in Syria is going to effect the entire Middle East and called upon Arab leaders to resolve the situation as soon as possible.
Sheikh Nasrallah also promised the Zionist regime that Palestine will return to its Natives. He declared that no one has the right to dispose any part of Palestinian land or its natural resources.
Sheikh Nasrallah blamed Qaddafi for depriving Lebanon one of its top Mujahid, Sayyed Mousa al-Sadr, to please Israel.
“One of Qaddafi’s crimes against the Palestinian cause was the kidnapping of Imam Moussa al-Sadr and his companions,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, as he stressed that the abduction was a favor to the Zionists. “We all know what does Sayyed Moussa al-Sadr represents for the Resistance and the Palestinian cause. He had been detained in order to target the Lebanese and Palestinian resistances. Should Sayyed Mousa al-Sadr still with us, outcomes would be positively different for the Resistance and the Palestinian cause.”
Sheikh Nasrallah paid glowing tributes to Assad regime in Syria. “The Syrian regime had prevented the elimination of Palestinian cause, and this shouldn’t be forgotten. We are pleased with the Syrian people and leaders’ commitment to national principles and Arab rights given the international pressure that did not destabilize the Syrian leadership. Had it succumbed to the pressure, Palestine would have been lost. Syria supported resistance in Lebanon and Palestine. We all support reform in Syria given its important position in the region. Those seeking sectarian incitement and NATO want to transform Syria into Lebanon, i.e. rife with sectarianism. Some sides are seeking to break up Syria as part of a new Middle East agenda, which we destroyed in Lebanon and Palestine”.
