Iran’s Ruling Mullahs Issue ‘Land Day’ Call for ‘Resistance’ Against ‘Illegal Zionist Regime’
Iran’s rulers issued yet another chilling call for Israel’s elimination on Friday, as the Tehran regime vented its anger at US President Donald Trump’s decision recognize the Jewish state’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
The call for what Iran’s Foreign Ministry described as a “complete end to the occupation of Palestine” was timed to coincide with “Land Day,” an annual day of protests and commemorations among Arab citizens of Israel for the six Arab protesters killed in violent clashes with Israeli soldiers and police on March 30, 1976.
“The US president’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital…and the occupied Golan Heights as part of the illegitimate Zionist regime…shows clearly that Palestinian resistance and perseverance as symbolized by ‘Land Day’ is the right path,” the Foreign Ministry said on its website.
The statement continued: “The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the establishment of sustainable and fair peace in the region will only be possible through the continuation of resistance until the complete end of Palestine’s occupation.”
The Iranian statement added that the close relationship between the US and Israel demonstrated the “futility of efforts by some Arab countries in the region to normalize ties with the Zionist regime.”
Iran’s president added his voice to the chorus of condemnation. “Americans are breaking international law on a daily basis…and recently in regards to the Golan Heights,” Hassan Rouhani said in remarks carried by state television. “We should resist this and, God willing, we will come out victorious.”
