3Anti-Semitic Quds Day on April 29
The last Friday of Ramadan was named “Quds Day” by the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ruhollah Khomeini. In addition to everyday threats by the regime officials against Israel, Quds Day is the epitome of their rhetoric. Khamenei’s Kayhan Newspaper, in an editorial piece, praised Hitler for killing and displacing Jews: “With expelling these people from Germany, Hitler showed he is smarter than all the current leaders of Europe and he is braver in expressing himself.” Ebrahim Raisi said “Quds Day brings the news of Israel’s destruction.” Speaker of the Islamic Republic “Parliament” in a meeting with high-ranking Hamas official said, “Islamic ummah, resistance groups and the Islamic world must increase the price of relationship normalization for the countries seeking relations with the Zionist regime!” IRGC issued a statement, threatening Israel, “Israel’s last breathes are here. Israel nears its end.” IRGC Commander-in-Chief called on Palestinians, “They have realized they could not reach their goal other than by Jihad!”
