According to MehrNews, the mouthpiece of the Islamic regime in Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that the Knesset’s decision to declare al-Quds (Jerusalem) the capital of Israel not only will not save the Zionist regime but also will speed up the regime’s annihilation.
Ahmadinejad made the remarks during a meeting with the head of Turkey – Iran parliamentary friendship group, Murat Yildirim, in Tehran on Tuesday.
He said that the Judaization of al-Quds (Jerusalem) is in line with the domineering powers’ colonialist policies to save the Zionist regime and dominate the region.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Ahmadinejad said that the Islamic Republic and Turkey have shared interests and common enemies.
He added the Palestine issue is one of the main concerns of the region and the world, and nobody can be indifferent to it. Iran and Turkey should prevent the hegemonistic powers from dominating the region, he stated.
He went on to say that the colonialists have always cast a greedy eye and thieving hand over the Middle East region and do not want any nation in the region to be powerful and advanced.
According to the website of the terrorist group Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Knesset has recently approved a draft law declaring Jerusalem the eternal and united capital of Israel.
Hamas leadership in line with the radicals ruling Iran, recently called for the first ever Arab army to liberate the holy city of Jerusalem. Hamas also called on Arab countries to champion this cause and take preliminary steps toward the establishment of an Arab military coalition. Hamas’s statement reads: “The first step is to form Quds Brigades in each Arab country in order to invite the abandoned Palestinians to join, as well as establish, a central Arab military command.”
Hamas reiterated in its statement: “The battle for the liberation of Jerusalem is closer than ever and, God willing, we will win.”
Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and Chairman of the Hamas Political Bureau Khaled Meshaal are scheduled to pay a visit to Iran and Turkey during their trip to a number of Muslim and Arab countries.
