Iranian al-Quds Day resolution demands elimination of ‘cancerous’ Israel

A resolution issued in Iran to mark Friday’s anti-Israel al-Quds Day openly calls for the elimination of “the cancerous tumor of Israel,” and declares this “noble cause” as the top priority for the Muslim world.

The text of the resolution was published by the semi-state Fars news agency, which said it was adopted by the vast numbers of Iranians who took to the streets across the country on Friday to demonstrate against Israel and its allies, including the United States.
“We Iranians as a united and integrated nation see liberation of the Holy Quds (Jerusalem), rescuing the oppressed and defenseless Palestinian nation from the dominance of the fake Zionist regime, and efforts aimed at eliminating the cancerous tumor of Israel as the noble cause of the Islamic Revolution,” Fars quoted the resolution as saying. This goal is the “first priority of the Muslim World and the only way to confront the illegitimate and criminal Zionist regime,” the text continued.
The resolution also urged Muslims worldwide not to allow “the enemies of Islam” to distract their attention from the issue of the Holy Quds and Palestine, Fars said.
“We, as the united Iranian nation, condemn the Al Saud war against Yemen and the savage killing of the oppressed and Muslim nation of Yemen and also Saudi Arabia’s partnership with the Al Khalifa regime in oppressing and committing crimes against the people of Bahrain as well as stripping (that country’s prominent Shiite leader) Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim of his citizenship right, which unfortunately took place under the silence of the international bodies and the cruel support of the US rulers,” the resolution added.
The text was published as Iranians staged anti-Israel rallies across the country for the annual al-Quds Day events, a tradition established by the late ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on the last Friday of Ramadan. Some protesters trampled the Israeli flag, and also chanted “down with the USA.” READ MORE
