Iran: Regional Peace Rests on Restoration of Palestinians’ Rights

Al-Manar | May 30, 2019

In a statement on the occasion of the International Quds Day, Iran’s Foreign Ministry emphasized that sustainable peace in the region will materialize only with restoration of Palestinians’ rights, which entails repatriation of displaced Palestinians and holding a referendum.

In the statement, released on Thursday, the Foreign Ministry described the issue of Palestine as the Islamic world’s pivotal subject, stressing the need to counter the Zionist regime’s policy of occupation.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran… believes that establishment of sustainable peace and calm in the region would not come true unless with the full restoration of rights of the oppressed Palestinian nation through the return of displaced Palestinians and holding a referendum in Palestine’s occupied territories with the participation of all main inhabitants of that land,” the statement said.

Stressing the need for Muslim unity and solidarity in the face of Israel, it said the usurping Zionist regime’s existence over the past 70 years has brought about nothing but displacement of millions of people, imprisonment and torture of thousands of innocent people, making thousands of Palestinian children orphans, and causing insecurity and instability in the region.

“The litany of the Zionist regime’s crimes and anti-human rights measures throughout the past 7 decades includes organized occupation of Palestine, systematic efforts to fully Judaize al-Quds, destroying the historical and civilizational identity of noble al-Quds, expansion of settler homes in the West Bank, forced relocation of al-Quds’ non-Jewish residents, depriving Palestinians of access to holy sites of al-Quds, illegal confiscation of their estate and demolishing their lands, and finally imposing inhumane redoubled pressures on people of Gaza and denying their access to basic foodstuff and pharmaceutical and medical commodities,” the statement deplored.

The Foreign Ministry called on the Muslim nations to stand against Israel’s divisive plots aimed at consigning the issue of Palestine to oblivion in order to prevent the implementation of the so-called deal of century and defy an upcoming “conference of deception and ruse” in Bahrain.

While the Muslim world is geared up to mark the International Quds Day on coming Friday, Bahrain is going to host a conference in June to encourage investment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as part of US President Donald Trump’s Israel-Palestinian peace plan.

The so-called “Peace to Prosperity” economic workshop, to be held on June 25-26 in cooperation with Washington, has already been rebuffed by Palestinian officials and business leaders.

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and Hamas have called for an Arab boycott of the meeting.

However, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have announced they will participate in the conference.

  1. Fact-filled, well-written, and stimulatingly on point to anyone who’s not a hypocrite.

    “…(Iran’s) Foreign Ministry described the issue of Palestine as the Islamic world’s pivotal subject….” This truth reminds me of the pertinence of the great video-documentarian John Pilger’s short 2003 “Palestine is Still the Issue.” These 16 interminable years later, Palestine is indeed still the issue — except for rogue, unrepresentative Arab quisling regimes that richly deserve to be termed “hypocrites” and roundly condemned for consorting with the enemy.

    “The (Iranian) Foreign Ministry called on the Muslim nations to stand against Israel’s divisive plots aimed at consigning the issue of Palestine to oblivion in order to prevent the implementation of the so-called deal of century and defy an upcoming “conference of deception and ruse” in Bahrain.” You stand, Iran; you stand tall! While the Arab “elite” grovel on their knees and genuflect to Zionism, you stand tall and proud!

    Palestine Is Still THE Issue!

    (I haven’t come across more than a few words on the subject, but I wonder if the Zioregime dustup over Satanyahu’s reported inability to form a government (sic) will not put a wrench in the Mideast works. I can’t possibly recount the episodes over decades of either (i) a US electoral process wherein it is deemed divisive and “impolitic” to consider pursuit of any effort at progress toward solution of the Palestinians’ torture or (ii) a reverse-image Zioentity election cycle wherein (in “entangled alliance” US environs) any discussion of Palestine must conveniently be put on hold lest the US be viewed or accused of “election meddling.” Voila, interminably! — kick the pizza pan down the road while the devourers of the pizza continue their repast unchecked toward the ultimate goal of there not being even a crumb of the pie left for the Palestinians. Such a deal…(lately, by arrogant design and slyly emplaced action by Zionist-Enterprise plunderers-cum-Zionist Enterprise entrepreneurs avid to make the “deal” of the 20th and 21st Centuries…at the Palestinians’ expense and prospects of starvation and extermination, of course).
