Imam Khomeini raised Palestinian issue on international arena

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic through his historic messages and speeches denounced the Israeli occupation and crimes being committed by Tel Aviv regime against the Palestinian people.

Imam Khomeini also advised all relevant authorities to raise the Palestinian issue at international forums and on the world arena.

Some historic quotes by Imam regarding the Palestinian issue come as following:

“All must know that the superpowers aim in creating Israel does not end in the occupation of Palestine. They plan, Heaven forbid, extending the fate of Palestine to all Arab countries. “

“Do not the authorities of the nation see or know that diplomatic talks with history's criminal and powerful politicians cannot save Lebanon, Palestine or quds and the number of crimes and oppressions increases daily. “

“Neither the Iranian Muslim nation, nor any other Muslims and, as a matter of fact, no open-minded individual, will recognize Israel. We shall always support our Arab and Palestinian brothers. “

“The issue of quds is not a private or personal issue. It is neither the exclusive problem of one country nor a present-day problem of all Muslims. Rather, it is a phenomenon concerning the monotheists and faithful people of all ages-past, present and future. “

The Israeli regime is now exploding with rage in the wake of last week’s United Nations Security Council resolution which calls for a halt to the regime's expansionism on the occupied Palestinian land.

 Tel Aviv has summoned the ambassadors of the US and ten other countries over the anti-settlement resolution.

 Experts say Israel fears the potential consequences of the resolution.

Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has recently called on the international community to assume its responsibilities and take an appropriate action aimed at putting an end to the Israeli regime’s continued acts of aggression against Palestinians.

“It is time for the international community to uphold its responsibilities to bring an end to this Israeli aggression and arrogance. I had hoped to come to you this year to proclaim together the end of this occupation, the Israeli occupation of my homeland, Palestine. But, regrettably, I stand before you today bearing the same miseries and pain that have been endured for so long by my people, who, despite all that they have suffered, … still hold on to the hope of achieving their freedom and independence, like all other nations of the world,” Abbas said at the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Thursday.

He added, “I ask you once again: Hasn’t the time come for the emancipation of the Palestinian people and their freedom from this injustice, oppression and occupation?”

The Palestinian president then denounced Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s controversial pledge to annex the Jordan Valley and the adjacent northern Dead Sea in the occupied West Bank as illegal, underlining that the Palestinian Authority will terminate all its agreements with the Tel Aviv regime in case the latter proceeds with such a plan.

“A week before the recent Israeli elections, Israel’s Prime Minister (Benjamin) Netanyahu came out to arrogantly announce that should he prevail in the election, he will annex and apply Israeli sovereignty to the Jordan Valley, northern Dead Sea, and Israel’s colonial settlements despite the fact that all these areas are occupied Palestinian territories. We reject entirely and completely this illegal plan,” Abbas said.

Abbas also slammed the United States’ support for Israel while denying Palestinians’ rights, noting that Washington has destroyed any possibility of peace and has jeopardized the so-called two-state solution with President Donald Trump’s controversial proposal for “peace” between the Israeli regime and Palestinians, dubbed “the deal of the century.”

The Palestinian president stressed that he will not accept any American mediation anymore due to Washington’s biased policies.

He also demanded the cessation of the US role as the key player in the so-called Middle East peace process.

The last round of Israeli-Palestinian talks collapsed in 2014. Among the major sticking points in those negotiations was Israel’s continued settlement expansion on Palestinian territories.
