    Fight to “liberate Palestine is Islamic duty” Iran’s Supreme Leader

    “The objective of the struggle was to liberate the whole Palestinian land and facilitate the restoration of all Palestinians to their country.” Khamenei

    Islam strongly emphasizes adherents’ individual responsibility to their neighbours. Good neighbourliness does not just mean being friendly to the homeowners next door, it means helping the underprivileged and taking care of the community as a whole.

    The Hindu, a print media, reports that Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a landmark speech, amid rising tensions with regional arch-enemy Israel, on Friday said it was Islamic duty to fight towards the liberation of Palestine.

    Khamenei, in his first ever address marking Quds (Jerusalem) Day, condemned some countries within the Middle East and others in the Western world for offering support to the Jewish state.

    The 80-year-old also seemed to confirm for the first time that Iran has helped with the provision of arms to the Palestine State.

    Khamenei’s remarks came at the end of a week when Israel’s Prime, Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, launched a Twitter tirade against Khamenei and the global media reported that the two countries carried out cyber attacks on each other.

    Also, Khamenei, on state television said the objective of the struggle was to liberate the whole Palestinian land and facilitate the restoration of all Palestinians to their country.

    Making the presence of the Zionist State in the region seem like a normal, everyday event is one of the major policies of the U.S.

     Also, The Daily Star reports that in his speech, Khamenei strongly criticised the United Nations for failing to do its job in trouble spots within the Middle East.

    Meanwhile, Jordan’s Prime Minister, Omar Al-Razzaz, told the official Petra news agency she would be forced to review her relationship with Israel if the Jewish state goes ahead with controversial plans to annex some parts of the occupied West Bank.

    His comments came days after Jordan’s King Abdullah II cautioned that if Israel annexes the West Bank in July, it would lead to a massive conflict with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

    In a related development, the Vanguard News reports that Iran cancelled its Quds Day rallies this year in a bid to minimize the spread of the novel coronavirus, which was firstly recorded in the country in February 2020.

    This 2020 commemoration comes after the January assassination of Qasem Soleimani, the powerful commander of the Quds Force, the foreign operations arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

    Earlier this week, Israelis woke to a series of cyber attacks targeting websites of businesses, municipalities and some other organisations with a message in Hebrew saying the countdown to the destruction of Israel began long ago.

    Also, The Washington Post reports that Israel has launched a cyber attack against the Iranian port of Shahid Rajaee, located on the Strait of Hormuz, a critical route for international oil traffic.

    Israel’s attack was assumed to be a revenge for a cyber attack on civil hydraulic installations in the Jewish State.

    According to the newspaper, Khamenei explained that the main policy of Zionism and arrogance is to underrate the Palestinian crisis in the minds of Muslim communities so as to push it into oblivion.

    Khamenei said the Syrian conflict, the Saudi-led war on Yemen’s Huthi rebels and the destruction of Iraq are all ground plans to entertain the resistance front and create the chance for the Zionist regime.

    Like a twist of fate, on the eve of Khamenei’s speech, the Arab League issued a statement condemning Iranian interference in the internal affairs of Arab countries.

    The Cairo-based organisation remarked that such an action whether through direct intervention or through Iran’s agents constitutes a threat to regional stability.

    The Pulse News reports that Khamenei who spoke at the Quds (Jerusalem) Day for the first time in over 30 years as the supreme leader, repeatedly referred to the Palestinian cause as the greatest problem of the Muslim world.

    Khamenei berated the efforts of some Arab countries in the region as completely fruitless saying they act as puppets to the U.S. and have provided necessary preconditions such as economic ties and the likes for this. 

    He admonished countries in the sub region to ‘fill the hand of the Palestinian fighter and strengthen their backs’.

    Every year since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran has marked Quds Day on the last Friday of Ramadan in solidarity with the Palestinians.
