Declaration of the Quds Day by Imam Khomeini

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

For many years I have been warning Muslims of the menace posed by the usurper Israel which has recently intensified her savage raids on our Palestinian brothers and sisters. Bent on the destruction of Palestinian freedom fighters, Israel has been ceaselessly bombing their houses and homes in South Lebanon.

I call on the Muslims of the world as well as on all Muslim governments to join forces to cut down this usurper and its supporters. I invite Muslims all over the globe to consecrate the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan- which is a `day of fate' and which could also become the day on which the fate of the Palestinian people might be determined- as `Quds Day' and to proclaim the international solidarity of Muslims in support of the legitimate rights of the Muslim people (of Palestine) I pray to the Almighty for the victory of the Muslims over the infidels. May God's peace, mercy and blessings be upon you.
