President in a meeting with the Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine:

Defending Palestinian nation’s rights must come ahead of any regional issue/No way except Jihad, resistance against Zionist Regime

“Today, the issue of Palestine and the Holy Quds has turned into a cause for all Muslims around the world and freedom of the Holy Quds and defending Palestinian nation’s rights must come ahead of any regional issue,” said President Rouhani in a meeting with the Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, Ramadan Abdullah.

In the meeting that was held on Tuesday in Tehran, Dr Rouhani said: “We should not let conspiracies and hardships discourage us in our way towards defending the lofty ideals of Palestine”.

“Today, the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine and other resistance groups have a great responsibility in this regard,” added Rouhani.

He continued: “Today, there is a powerful reasoning in world public opinion that the Zionist Regime has never sought peace. We should tap this issue and prove that there is no way other than Jihad for the Palestinians to resist against this usurper Regime”.

Stating that major world powers have supported the Zionist Regime militarily, politically and economically from its first days, he said: “We should enlighten the U.S and Europe public opinions that the Zionist Regime can never be a good support for them”.

"The Zionist Regime has taken advantage of the current security issues in the region, especially that they have created conditions for the terrorists in many countries of the region, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, and even some parts of northern Africa in Egypt and Libya to keep them busy with their domestic security issues and shift their attention away from Palestine".

Referring to the 33-Day War in Lebanon and the 22-Day War in Gaza and that although the Zionist Regime fought with all its military power, it lost the war, Dr Rouhani said: "Resistance in Gaza and Lebanon that led to victory, has casted serious doubt on Zionist Regime Army's capabilities and invincibility in Europe and America".

He added: "Today, freedom of the Holy Quds and defending the rights of the Palestinian nation are two great goals and there is a difficult path ahead of us and we should trust and rely on God to lead the path to victory".

From the early days of the Revolution, the Islamic Republic of Iran has supported the cause of the Palestinian people, said Rouhani adding: "The Iranian government and nation has always walked along this path and will spare no support and help to the people of Palestine"

Without a doubt, the conspiracy that is aimed at shifting attentions away from the issue of Palestine will fail, he said.

At the meeting, the Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, Ramadan Abdullah also appreciated Iran for supporting the oppressed people of Palestine and the Resistance and said: "Unfortunately, some countries in the region are trying to create conflicts in the region to help the Zionist Regime become recognised and shift attentions away from public opinions".

"If it weren't for the Islamic Republic of Iran's support, the Palestinian people could not express their stances and words to the world and keep their position," he added.

The Palestinian nation, despite all pressures, will never be tired of resisting against the Zionist Regime and will continue to do so by relying on the passion of resistance in its youths".
