From Iran’s PressTV:
The two-day Tehran conference on Palestine, attended by around 700 foreign guests from dozens of countries and representatives of pro-Palestinian organizations, wrapped up on Wednesday with a statement that voiced support for the rights of the Palestinian nation and underlined the need for an end to Israel’s nearly seven decades of occupation.
In the statement, the participants underlined the need for further unity among the Palestinians, and highlighted resistance as the sole solution to the Palestinian issue.
The use of the word “occupation” is deliberate, specifically to appeal to gullible Westerners. Saying you are against Israel’s “occupation” is laudatory, but saying you are against Israel’s existence is not quite acceptable to the UN yet.
The word “resistance” is the same. It sounds so much nicer than “terrorism” which is what it means, during the “6th International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Intifada.”
People believe what they want to believe.
The good news is that Tehran is clearly concerned over Arab ties with Israel.
Addressing the 6th International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Intifada (Uprising) in Tehran on Wednesday, the Iranian president raised the alarm over the Tel Aviv regime’s attempts to normalize relations with certain Arab countries of the region.
“The occupying regime [of Israel], in an attempt to normalize its situation, has for the first time referred to certain Arab countries as its allies against the resistance front, instead of describing them as its enemies,” he said.
The Tel Aviv regime “claims that most of the Arab countries are not the enemies of Zionism or opposed to occupation anymore, but that they share the same phobia about resistance,” Rouhani added.
The Iranian president called on the countries of the region to remain vigilant in the face of Israeli plots, and said the Muslim world needs to clarify its position on the issue of Israel’s efforts to normalize its ties with Arab countries.
“Isn’t it time that neighbors once and for all say ‘No’ to war and fratricide?” Rouhani asked, calling for collective efforts to resolve the Palestinian issue, which he described as the Muslim world’s major problem.
The idea of Arabs allying with Israel scares them more than anything President Obama ever said.
Iran likes to pretend that it is the leader of the Muslim world, and when Saudi Arabia sides with Israel over fellow Muslims, it shows that Iran’s ambitions in that area are in shambles.
