TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Secretary-General of Society for Defending Palestine Nation (SDPN) Zahra Mostafavi condemned attempts by a number of Arab states to normalize relations with the Israeli regime, warning against repercussions of such bids.
In an open letter to some heads of Islamic countries, Mostafavi said, “As some leaders of the Muslim world have overlooked the issue of Palestine, their occupation and their sufferings and displacement and, instead, have taken steps to establish diplomatic ties with the occupiers of Palestine is in actual fact in contrast with the Islamic teachings and the Holy Quran itself,” and a decision against Islamic unity and fraternity”.
She added, “This is obviously to let down the duty of liberating the Muslim land from the hands of Kufr. As Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has stated, any relations with the Zionist Regime is a great betrayal against the cause of Palestine and the Muslim Ummah”.
“No doubt, if the Arabic and the Islamic states remained beside the Palestinian nation as the Islamic Iran has stood beside the Palestinian cause for the past 42 years and has taken up this measure as part of its priority in its foreign policies and has continued this trend with steadfastness and strong will during the past 42 years, the Palestinian liberation would have taken a faster pace and would have led to an end to all the insecurity within the nations, as well as the entire region, through close cooperation,” the letter further read.
In a tweet on Friday, US President Donald Trump announced the normalization of bilateral ties between Bahrain and the occupying regime of Israel, the second Arab state to join a deal widely censured as a betrayal of the Palestinian cause.
Trump said that Bahrain had agreed to join the United Arab Emirates in striking a deal to normalize relations with Tel Aviv.
Bahrain will join Israel and the UAE for a signing ceremony at the White House hosted by Trump on September 15. The Israel-UAE ceremony will be attended by Netanyahu and Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
