Rabbi Younes Hamami Lalehzar, leader of the Jewish community in Iran in an interview with Mehr News Agency conducted on the eve of the International Quds Day stressing that to defend other people as an important principle in all religions, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
He said," To defend the rights of oppressed people has also a moral aspect and is counted a religious mission."
He added," Zionism is inspired by European nationalist movements with emphasis on some Jewish ambitions without maintaining the religious aspects that is why several orthodox Jews were against the movement from the beginning."
Rabbi Younes Hamami Lalehzar added that the first opposition with Zionism was on the side of Jews and orthodox Jews because they do not recognize that as a lifestyle or path of Prophet Moses (AS).
He referred to the Jewish community living in the occupied lands that oppose and clash with Zionists.
Leader of the Jewish community referred to the active role of the Iranian Jews for annual International Quds Day ceremony.
He called on the world Jews to stand by the oppressed Palestinians in the occupied lands.
