An Iranian lawmaker says Imam Khomeini’s designation of the upcoming International Day of Quds aimed at exposing the malicious face of the Zionists and the US in the world.
Mohammad Mehdi Zahedi was speaking to the Qods News Agency (Qodsna) weeks ahead of the international occasion.
The former minister of education added that Imam Khomeini’s thoughts actually inspired a current in the world in support of the oppressed, especially the Palestinian people.
The lawmaker said Muslims must express solidarity with the Palestinian nation so that they do not lose their morale.
Asked about the emergence of the ISIS terror group, the lawmaker said the group was created in a bid to pit Muslims from various denominations against one another and mar the face of Islam.
