Palestinian Politician Hails Power of Int'l Qods Day
TEHRAN (FNA)- The head of Qods and Intifada's central headquarters, Ramazan Sharif, on Sunday underlined that the change in Israel's military pattern as well as the vigilance of the Islamic countries should all be viewed as achievements of the International Qods Day.
Referring to the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan dubbed as 'the international Qods Day' during which worldwide Muslims stage demonstrations to voice their strong protest and outrage at the occupying regime of Israel, Sharif told a press conference, "Imam Khomeini's initiative in naming the last Friday of Ramadan as the Qods Day has yielded ample achievements during the past years."
The International Qods Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of Qods to Muslims.
Noting that the Qods Day has brought about vigilance for the Muslim world and unveiled enemies of the Islamic Ummah (community), Sharif reiterated that the demonstrations held on the International Qods Day are a reminder of the Palestinian issue to the world and the new Muslim generations.
Sharif further pointed out that the International Qods Day has transformed Palestine into a global issue, and made "the Zionist regime face big challenges and witness a defusing of its plots".
He also underlined that those who defended the occupying regime can no more express their support publicly due to the vigilance and awareness created after the International Qods Day.
Sharif praised Imam Khomeini's successful initiative, and said that Muslim boycotts against Israeli goods is yet another achievement of the International Qods Day.
