Hujjat-ul-Islam Hamid Shahriari in his remarks at the fifth international summit for solidarity with Palestinian children held in the capital Tehran on Friday noted resistance as the sole way against Israeli regime, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
He said the meeting aimed to voice international support for the Palestinian children and entire nation.
The cleric added,” Because of the regime’s oppression, withdrawal of the Palestinian citizens in Jerusalem from their homes, expansion of Israeli settlements and blocking the ways to Palestinians, our resistance against Israel is a religious mandate.”
He quoted verses of Qur’an commanding Muslims to stand against oppressors warning them of any relations with oppressive people.
Hujjat-ul-Islam Shahriari noted,” Judaism is different from Zionism and our hostility with Israeli regime is due to its oppression against Palestinian citizens; hence, our behavior with Jews is in two manners because holy Qur’an has also divided them into two groups, the first group those whose hostility with us is more adversarial and the second the Jews who are not arrogant, as Zionists are.”
Iranian cleric noted,” We admit peaceful coexistence with the second group of Jews, as we have done so with Jews, Christians and other minorities in the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
Secretary General of World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought related on normalization of relations with Israeli regime playing a key role in intensifying the crimes against al-Aqsa Mosque.
“We cannot identify normalization of relations with Israeli regime as anything but crime and aggression against Palestinian regime” said Hujjat-ul-Islam Shahriari.
The cleric stressed,” We should stand against Israeli aggressions against al-Aqsa Mosque, settlement expansion, massacre of Palestinian citizens, Gaza siege, ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in their mother lands and also any form of normalization with Israeli regime because the crimes by Israeli regime is in fact crime against Palestinian nation and entire humanity.”
Hujjat-ul-Islam Hamid Shahriari concluded,” There is no way against the criminal arrogant power of Israel but to maintain Islamic unity because to sow dispersion and division among Muslims will lead to disagreement, hatred and failure for them.”
Senior Iranian cleric made the comments in the fifth international summit of solidarity with Palestinian children and adolescents held in the capital Tehran on Friday.
