Palestinian people are not alone

Palestinian people are not alone

By Zohreh Elahian*


Israeli soldiers once again revealed their cruel nature in their latest crime on Friday by storming the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound and attacking Palestinian worshippers in its courtyard. Israeli forces are said to have injured about 150 people during the attack and taken away about 400 others.

The Zionists’ action once again brought under the spotlight the developments related to Palestine in the media and the world’s public opinion, showing that the Palestinian cause still remains one of the most important issues in the world, particularly in the Muslim world.

The Israelis may have had the slightest idea that by advancing the project of normalizing relations with certain regional states, the Muslim people of the region would turn a blind eye to their atrocities in Palestine and that Palestinian resistance groups would also gradually give up struggle against their oppression and usurpation. However, the global condemnation of the Zionists’ attack on Palestinian worshippers has proved that their calculations are nothing but merely wishful thinking. 

From the UN secretary general to some European countries and many Muslim states and even those Islamic countries that have recently signed normalization deals with the Israeli regime have either condemned or reacted to Friday's attack. Moreover, demonstrations and rallies have been held in some Muslim countries in support of Palestine. Resistance groups across the Palestinian territories have also reiterated their readiness to confront the continuation of the Zionist aggression. Meanwhile, the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan, which is designated as Quds Day, is approaching and it seems that given these new events, Muslim people in different countries will do their utmost to mark this day more gloriously so that the loud voice of Muslims in condemning the usurping and oppressive policies of the Israeli regime is heard by the world and new hope flares for the true fighters for the liberation of Palestine.

The Zionist regime has intensified its attacks in the occupied territories and on Palestinians at a time when the morale of resistance of the Palestinian people is at its zenith and such a high morale among the Palestinians for fighting the Israeli oppression will take out the sinister Zionist regime. In his recent speech, Iran’s Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei predicted that Israel would suffer a complete defeat. On the other hand, the escalation of Israeli attacks on the oppressed people of Palestine seems to be related to the inefficiency of the Israeli cabinet and ineffectiveness of its policies. 

The cabinet came to power about a year ago with campaign promises to ensure security and improve the economic situation, but now what is happening in the occupied territories is totally different from what the regime’s prime minister has promised. Martyrdom-seeking attacks by Palestinians have now swept the occupied territories hitting cities such as Bethlehem and suburban Tel Aviv to indicate that the usurper Zionists are not safe even if equipped with military systems. In addition to growing insecurity, the continuation of economic woes and ethnicity-related problems are among other internal issues the Zionist regime is grappling with. It seems the Israeli regime is trying to cover up internal problems, especially insecurity, through intensifying its attacks on Palestinian Muslims. Therefore, the sinister regime appears to have more internal and external problems than ever before.

The dear people of Palestine should know that they are not alone in this path, and that the fighters and the comrades of martyred Iranian Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani from across the region will stand by them until the Zionist regime is completely annihilated.
