Prologue:*

In view of the very little time existed for the organization of the fourth International Conference “in support of Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of crime”, the majority of participants of conference were not able to write their articles to be presented during conference. This problem from one hand and publishing all the materials and articles of the conference in three languages of English, Persian and Arabic within a very short period of time on the other hand, created problems for compilation of present document. But the permanent secretariat in support of Intifada of Palestine made great efforts so that within one month after ending of the conference to prepare and arrange audio-visual software of all speeches presented during the conference. Considering the importance of recording indirectly all the speeches and then publishing and translating the articles in the above-mentioned languages, the duty was given to me by the permanent secretariat since April 14th 2009. So we started all the works collectively and within framework of a group. At first we collected and compiled all the written speeches and in case if there was not a written one, we tried to prepare written speech through hearing audio software in spite of different languages and accents such as: Farsi-Dari, French, English, Spanish, Turkey, Italian and Arabic, and then these texts were translated in Persian, Arabic and English by our efficient translators. Before translation, necessary changes were done on the Persian texts (original copies) and following these changes, the translation was performed. In this regard all the speeches, poems and narratives were checked on the basis of their resources (original text) so that to be correct.

Undoubtedly this important papers which is considered as a main documents of fourth International Conference in support of Palestine, could not be materialized without continuous cooperation and efforts of my colleagues.

Introduction:

One of the significant characteristic of the late Imam Khomeini the great leader and founder of the Islamic revolution of Iran from the very beginning was his struggles against illegitimate Zionist regime parallel to his struggles against Shah of Iran. The late Imam believed that the emergence of dictatorial regimes under influence of Western Imperialist was in fact supported by usurper and criminal Zionists. On this basis since the beginning of his struggles, he had tried to target this malignant tumor and after destroying shah, he brought light of hope for the Islamic Iran and Islamic Ummah.

There is no doubt that preset Zionism had been created by Western powers for controlling the vital recourses and communicating crossroads of Middle East and Particularly the world of Islam and in fact the Zionism is considered as a motor power for the great industrial Machine of Western powers.

From one hand the occupied Palestine is located in the Middle East and Islamic world and Al-Qods is the first Quibble of all the Muslims of the world and is the third holy shrine of Muslims, and on the other hand the geographical position of Middle East as communicating crossroad between Asia, Europe and Africa, and the existence of three important and vital straits of Bab-mandeb, Suez channel, and Hormoz strait and having 65% of energy resource  of the world, had all added to further importance of this region.

Thus the west led by Great Britain which wanted to get rid of Jews from their own lands, started to push them toward Palestinian territory so that to continue its influence in the most sensitive region of the world.

If we look at the history of the noble people of Iran and their struggles we come to know that the reasons for their defeat in the struggling movements of nationalism were resulted from self-interest leadership in Iran. So for solving this very important deficiency, the strategy of the great leader of the Islamic revolution was the need to struggle firstly against Pahlavi regime in Iran and secondly against usurper and criminal Zionists which the Pahlavi regime was affiliated to it, and as a result the Islamic government was established in Iran.

The victory of the Islamic movement led by late Imam Khomeini which is mentioned as “the victory of the revolution of the Century”, became the symbol of all struggles of the Islamic Ummah against Zionism and thus gave new spirit to the world of Islam Particularly after continuous defeat of Arab armies and acceptance of shameful pact of Camp David which was very disgraceful.

Breaking economic and diplomatic relations with occupying regime of Israel, establishing Palestine embassy in Tehran, declaring the last Friday of Ramadan as the Global Day of Al-Qods, accepting Palestinians in Iran as the real owners of occupied territories, granting legitimacy to the jihad and Islamic resistance against occupying Zionists, adopting the law for supporting Islamic revolution of Palestinians, and establishing permanent secretariat in support of Intifada of Palestinians under supervision of the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran, were initiatives  brought by the Islamic Republic of Iran. This strategy and fundamental view of the late Imam Khomeini, the great leader of the Islamic revolution which today is being followed under the guidance of His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei  the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, led to further expansion of the struggles against Zionism beyond Islamic world. Thus today you can see the new world with new ideology has been created with freedom-seeking and justice- seeking people.

Undoubtedly, the three victories achieved by the Islamic resistance within less than three decades since the victory of the Islamic revolution, not only led to the defeat of the most powerful army of the world (4th powerful army), but it further strengthened the faith and believe of the justice-seeking people of the world particularly Islamic Ummah with regard to the strategy of the late Imam Khomeini who said: “Israel is malignant tumor and thus should be disappear from the world”. .

All these victories which were started in the year2000, while Zionist army shamefully withdraw from southern parts of Lebanon in the year 2000 and continued till the victory of Lebanese justice-seeking resistance during the 33 day- war and then Palestinian Islamic resistance in 22 day- war of Gaza in 2009. Thus the justice-seeking people of the world and Islamic resistance really believed the defeat of Zionist army.

This important message in the sustainable movement of the late Imam Khomeini was institutionalized by establishing permanent secretariat for supporting Intifada of Palestine. This secretariat during different struggles of Palestinians considers its main duty to create unity and solidarity among Palestinian combatants and to give spiritual and material support to the oppressed people of Palestine and their resistance, and to consider the struggle against oppression on the basis of international legal capacities as its main duty.

On this basis the secretariat of the Palestine Conference according to the law adopted by the Islamic Consultative Assembly on 1990 started its official activities and to this end, held its first international Conference for the victory of the Intifada of the people of Palestine on 1990.

The second Intifada started because of different reasons including the defeat of second Camp David and racial discriminatory policies of Zionism and visit of Ariel Sharon and military forces of occupying regime from Al-Aqsa Mosque which led to the killing of many Palestinians while they were praying. Thus the permanent secretariat of Palestine Conference decided to hold the second International Conference in support of second Intifada in Al-Aqsa Mosque in 2001 (May 2001). On the basis of uprising of the people of Palestine in the two former Intifada, the treasons of Zionist regime changed and took new form. This time under pretext of finding the “David body” they (Zionists) started to destroy Al-Qods and eastern part of Al-Aqsa Mosque. These ideas of Zionist regime indicate its expansionist policy and its objectives in changing Al-Qods to Jewish city and its judaization and thus destroying the first Quibble of all Muslims. On this basis the third International Conference of Palestine under the title of “Al Qods and supporting the rights of the people of Palestine” was held on 2006 (April). This conference brought tremendous results for the Islamic world.

In the current year (2009), the people of Palestine on the basis of regional and international changes and developments which include the responsibility of Islamic resistance movement of Hamas in the legislative Parliament and establishing resistance government till the great victory of resistance in Lebanon in the summer of 2006 and counting for the defeat of Zionist regime and its American and Arab allies and economic siege in Gaza strip for many months, obliged them to fight once again against their enemy which was fully armed. The Palestinian combatants repeated the same epic of 33 day- war of resistance in Lebanon which had very deep perception from strategic point of view. So after the victory achieved by resistance in Gaza, the secretariat decided that on the basis of the intentions of the leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran to hold the fourth International Conference “in support of Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of crime” on 4 and 5 of March 2009.

 

Appropriate time for holding the Fourth Conference,

The brave people of Palestine during the history of their struggles did not used arms and instead they had many stone Intifada. While the occupying regime of Israel after its strategic defeat in 33 day- war against Lebanese resistance, started another plan to fight against Palestine resistance. This defeat not only destroyed all the efforts of conciliation with Zionist regime, but rather it institutionalized the resistance as the sign for the victory of the people of Palestine. So on this basis in all over occupying territories with regard to the two great victories achieved in the decade of 2000, a new hope was created for the freedom and justice- seeking people of the world particularly for the Islamic resistance. So any other effort which shall be made by Zionist enemy in future is consider a defeat.

Under such circumstances, while public and international opinions urgently request for condemnation of the criminals (Zionists) so that do not repeat their criminal and anti humanitarian aggressions again, the Islamic Consultative Assembly availed itself of this opportunity to support once again the legitimate arm resistance of the people of Palestine and thus decided to hold the fourth International Conference “in Support of the Palestine Symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of crime” with the participation of distinguished heads of Parliamentarian delegations, and honorable religious, cultural, political and social personalities.

Participants From Different Geographical Areas

While all the distinguished cultural, legal, political and social personalities appreciated holding of the fourth Tehran Conference, at the same time the Secretariat of Conference on the basis of its existing potentialities and possibilities was able to respond only to certain applications. On this basis in spite of the participation of all Parliamentarian groups, on the basis of geographical distances the participants had come from following continents:

At the same time His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani, Esteemed head of Conference and other Participants severely condemned the unwise efforts of I.C.C for issuing a verdict for the arrest of His Excellency Mr. Omar al Bashir, esteemed President of Sudan.

Opening remarks presented by of His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei,

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran,

 I would like to welcome you, honorable Participants, scholars, thinkers, statesmen, and combatants’ who have come to the Islamic Republic of Iran to participate in the Fourth Conference in Support of Palestine.

Important and crucial developments have already occurred between this and the last meeting held in Tehran during 15-17 Rabi-Al Awl, 1427 H.(April 14-16, 2006).

These developments have brightened the future prospects of the issue of Palestine and made clearer our duties concerning this fundamental problem of the Islamic world.

Among these important developments were the amazing military and political defeats inflicted by the Islamic resistance in Lebanon on Israel during the 33-day war in 1427 h. (2006), and the humiliating failure of the Zionist regime in the 22-day long criminal war against the people of Gaza and the legal government of Palestine.

Now this usurper regime-which with its army and support flaunted a fearsome and undefeatable façade during the last several decades-has twice been forced to suffer defeat by the forces of resistance fighting with trust in God and the people, rather than reliance on arms and equipment.

Notwithstanding its military exercises, preparations, and far-reaching intelligence outfits, as well as the unsparing support of the United States and some western governments, along with the collaboration of some hypocrites in the Muslim world, the Zionist regime is faced with incompetence, a steep downfall and dissolution before the powerful wave of Islamic awakening.

On the other hand, the crimes committed by the Zionist criminals during the historic events of Gaza the genocide of civilians’ the destruction of defenseless homes, the impaling of infants, the bombing of school and mosques, the use of phosphorous bombs and other outlawed weapons, all this following an almost two-year blockade on supplies of food, medicine, fuel and other essentials of life for the people, and numerous other crimes-proved that the savage and criminal instincts of the leaders of the fake Zionist state have not changed in the least since the early decades of the disaster in Palestine. Exactly the same policies and predatory and ruthless motives which created such tragedies as those of Deiryasin, Sabra and shatila still rule the dark minds and hearts of the contemporary tyrants.

Of course, the magnitudes of such atrocities and their disastrous consequence have been amplified by the advances in technology.

By now those who advocated a “pragmatic” approach under the illusion of the invincibility of the Zionist regime, and who succumbed to surrender and compromise with the usurpers, should have realized their mistake, as well as those who entertained hopes of peaceful coexistence with the Zionists, wrongly believing the second and third generation of Zionist politicians to be free from the criminal impulses of the first.

Firstly, the false image of invincibility was shattered by the wave of Islamic awakening and maturing of the erstwhile sapling of Islamic resistance. The signs of the usurper regimes weakness and despondency have become fully visible. Secondly, the aggressive character of the ringleaders of that regime and their unscrupulousness in committing atrocities remain unchanged since the early decades. They are not averse to committing any atrocity whatsoever and whenever they think they can do it.

Now 60 years have passed since the occupation of Palestine. During this period all material means of power have been in the service of the usurpers,

Including money, weapons and technology, as well as political and diplomatic initiatives and the giant empire of news media and networks. Yet despite these staggering and far-reaching satanic efforts, the usurpers and their supporters have not only failed to solve the problem of the Zionist regimes illegitimacy, but it grown more complicated with time.

The intolerance shown by the western and Zionist media and pro -Zionist governments toward even the mere posing of any question concerning the Holocaust – which served as on excuse for the usurpation of Palestine-and research on the topic, is one of the signs of this nervousness and uncertainty.

The image of the Zionist regime in world opinion today is much worse than it has ever been during its black history, and more serious questions are being raised concerning the rationale of its creation.

The spontaneous and unprecedented world-wide protests against this regime and in support of the Islamic resistance in Gaza and Lebanon during the 33 day war, which extended form the far East to Latin America, and demonstrations in 120 countries including Europe and Britain, the breeding ground of this evil tree, reveal the emergence of a world-wide resistance against Zionism that has never been so serious and extensive in the last 60 years. It may be said that the Islamic resistance in Lebanon and Palestine has succeeded in awakening the world’s conscience.

This is a big lesson, for both the Muslim Ummah and its enemies.

It is a lesson for the enemies, who tried to create a fake and counterfeit nation and state by resorting to force and repression, and to convert it in course of time into an undeniable reality, and to make such an unjust imposition something normal for the Islamic world.

It is also a lesson for the , Muslim community, especially the proud youth and their alert conscience, so that they may know that any struggle waged for the restoration of usurped rights is never in vain and  that Gods promise is indeed true when He, the Most High, declares(in the Quran).

“Those who are fought against are permitted {to fight} because they have been wronged, and Allah is indeed able to help them. –Those that were expelled from their homes unjustly, only because they said, Allah is our lord. Had not Allah repulsed the people from one another, ruin would have befallen the monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques in which Allah’s Name IS mentioned greatly. Allah will surely help those who help Him. “Indeed Allah all-strong, all-mighty.”(22:39-40)

 “and when He, the Most High, says: Indeed Allah does not break His promise.” (3:9)

“Allah shall never break His promise.”(22:47)

“{this is} a promise of Allah: Allah does not break His promise, but most people do not know.”(30:6)

“So do not suppose that Allah will break His promise to His apostle. Indeed Allah is all-mighty, avenger”.(14:47)

And what promise can be more categorical than this promise of God,

“Allah has promised those of you who have faith and do righteous deeds that He will surely make them successors in the earth, just as He made those who were before them successors, and He will surely establish for them their religion which He has approved for them, and that He will surely change their state to security after their fear, while they worship Me, not ascribing any partners to Me. And whoever is ungrateful after that – it is they who are the transgressors.” (24:55)

A big fallacy which has taken control of the minds of some persons concerning the problem of Palestine is that a country named Israel is a 60-year old reality with which one has to reconcile. I do not know why these people do not learn from other realities that are in front of their eyes. Is it not a fact that the countries of the Balkans, Caucasus, and Southwest Asia reclaimed their identity after 80 years of loss, and after being of the former Soviet Union? Why cannot Palestine, which is part of the body of the Islamic world, reclaim its Islamic and Arab identity? Why cannot the Palestinian youths, who are among the most astute and resistant of Arab youth, over come this unjust reality by their will and resolution? Another big fallacy is to that negotiation is the only means of deliverance for the Palestinian nation. With whom are these negotiations to be help? With a usurper, misguided and bullying regime which does not believe in anything except force? What have those who have been captivated with this game and delusion achieved?

Firstly, what they obtained from the Zionists in the form of the Palestinian Authority-its humiliating and disgraceful character aside-was at the enormous cost of having to recognize the ownership of the usurper regime over nearly the entire Palestine.

Secondly, even that partial and fake authority was at times trampled underfoot by the Zionists under empty excuses. The siege of Yasser Arafat in his administrative building in Ramallah and numerous forms of humiliation he was made to suffer are not events that can be forgotten.

Thirdly, during Arafat’s days and, especially, after him, they have treated the officials of the autonomous Authority as police-station chiefs whose duty was to prosecute and arrest Palestinian combatants and to keep them under intelligence and police surveillance, thus spreading seeds of enmity among Palestinian group and prompting them to wage war against one another.

Fourthly, even that puny achievement was the fruit of the struggle of Palestinian combatants and resistance of its proud men and indomitable women.

Had the Intifada not occurred, the Zionists would not have given them even this little, despite the successive compromises made by the conventional Palestinian leaders.

Or shall it be negotiations with the United States and Britain, who are guilty of the biggest sin in creating and sustaining this cancerous tumor, and who moreover, are one of the parties to the dispute and not arbiters.

The United Stated government has never ceased its unconditional support for the Zionist regime and its flagrant crimes, such as those committed the recent events in Gaza.

Even the new American president, who came to office with the slogan of bringing change in the policies of the Bush Administration, avows unconditional commitment to Israel’s security, which means defending state terrorism, defending injustice and oppression, and defending a 22-day-long massacre of hundreds of Palestinian men, women and children.

It is a policy which amounts to the same crooked ways of the Bush administration and nothing else.

Negotiations with bodies associated with the United Nations are another exercise in futility. The United Nation has perhaps confronted few tests such as the problem of Palestine, wherein it has been exposed and earned a bad name. It was a day when the Security Council promptly and officially recognized the occupation of Palestine by acquisitive terrorist groups and played a basic role in the birth and continuation of this historic injustice.

After that, for several decades, it maintained a satisfied silence with regard to the cases of genocide, expulsion of refugees, war crimes and various atrocities committed by that regime. Even when the General Assembly voted branding Zionism as a racist ideology, the Security Council not only did not go along but also maintained practically a diametrically opposite stand. The oppressive world powers, which enjoy permanent membership in the Security Council, use this world body as an instrument. As a result, the Security Council not only does not help the cause of world security, but also rallies to the assistance of this power whenever they deploy notions such as human rights, democracy and the like as pretexts to further their greed and domination, drawing a curtain of deception and lies over their illegitimate actions.

The deliverance of Palestine cannot be obtained through begging from the United Nations or the dominating power, and more so from the usurper regime. The sole path of its deliverance is through resistance and fortitude, through the unity of purpose of the Palestinians and the word of Gods oneness (taw hid), which is the inexhaustible resource for human struggle.

The pillars of this resistance, on one side, are the combatant Palestinian groups and each and every one of the faithful and resistant Palestinians, those who are within that country as well as those who are abroad.

From another side, the pillars are the worlds Muslim nations and governments, religious scholars, intellectuals, political figures and academicians. If these two pillars remain firmly in their place, there is no doubt that in every part of the world, awakened consciences, hearts and minds which have not been spoiled by the spell of the news media empire belonging to the global arrogance and Zionism, will rally to the assistance of the victims and those who have been denied their rights, forcing imperialism to confront a storm of thoughts, emotions and actions.

We have seen an example of this truth in recent days during the magnificent resistance of Gaza.

The sobs in front of the news cameras of a western chief of one of the international aid organizations, expressions of sympathy by activists belonging to humanitarian organizations, the large and impassioned public demonstrations in the heart of European capitals and American cities, the bold moves made by the heads of several states in Latin America –all these are signs that the non-Muslim  world has not yet  been fully subjugated by forces of evil and corruption –called “Satan” in the nomenclature of the Quran-and that the ground is still open for truth to manifest itself.

Yes, the resistance and fortitude of the Palestinian combatants and people, together with all-round support and assistance from all Islamic countries, will break the satanic spell of the usurpation of Palestine. The prodigious energies of the Islamic Ummah can solve the problems of the Islamic world, including the urgent and acute issue of Palestine.

Muslim brothers and sister throughout the world, my message now is addressed to you as well as to all persons with an alert conscience, irrespective of country and creed. Make an effort, and break the spell of impunity for the Zionist criminals. Bring to trial the political and military heads of the usurper regime who have had a role in bringing about the Gaza tragedy, and, mete out to them the punishment laid down by reason and justice.

This is the first step to taken. The political and military leaders of the usurper regime should be brought to trial. If criminals are punished, the room for criminal acts by those who possess the motives and madness to commit them will be restricted. Impunity for perpetrators of great crimes is itself a cause and incentive for further crimes.

If after the 33-day Lebanon war, the Muslim world community had earnestly demanded the punishment of Zionist leaders responsible for the terrible atrocities committed during this war, had this legitimate demand been made following the massacres of wedding processions in Afghanistan, after the atrocities committed by Black water mercenaries in Iraq, and following the Abu Ghuraib scandal and other cases involving U.S.soldiers, we would not have witnessed another Karbala in Gaza.

In these cases, we, Muslim states and nations, have not acted in accordance with our duty as dictated by the laws of justice and reason. Its consequence is what we are witnessing today.

It is a matter of deep regret that some governments and world politicians are today alien to moral values and judgments of human conscience. They are insensitive to the 22-day long genocide in Gaza in which 1350 people were killed and about 5500 civilians were wounded, many of them children. The murderers and criminals are not only not punished, but are even rewarded. The security of the bloodthirsty regime is considered sanctity to be defended at all cost, and the victims, whether it is a government elected by a decisive popular vote or the people who have elected it to office, are accused and condemned.

Such is the judgment of political tribunals totally divorced from ethics and alien to conscience and human virtues. Yet, when these governments encounter public opinion in the form of a deep hatred, instead of noting its obvious cause, they again resort to political maneuvers, thus continuing the vicious circle.

Dear brother and sister throughout the Islamic world! Let us learn from experience.

Our great community with the boon of the Islamic awakening possesses tremendous power.

The key to the solution of many of the problems of the Muslim countries lies in the resoluteness and solidarity of this wonderful galaxy. The question of Palestine is the most urgent problem of the Islamic world. At times some people are heard to say that Palestine is an Arab problem. What does that mean? If it means that there is a stronger feeling of consanguinity among the Arabs, who are willing to offer Palestine a greater service and do more struggle for its sake, that is something desirable and we welcome it. But if it means that the heads of some Arab countries should refuse to pay any heed to the cries of help of the Palestinian people which are addressed to all Muslims, if it means that they may collaborate with the ruthless usurper enemy in such an important case as the tragedy of Gaza while loudly condemning others who cannot remain indifferent to their call of duty to help Gaza – then no proud and conscientious Muslim or Arab will accept it, nor spare the speaker of disapproval and reproach. It is the same as the logic of Akhzam, who used to beat his father and chide others for interfering. After him, his son would assault the grandfather with his fists.

The fable is the source of an Arabic proverb.(which means: My sons have left me covered with blood, a custom that I know was laid down by Akhzam).

Offering a multi-faceted assistance to the people of Palestine and complete support is a joint duty of all Muslims.

The governments which criticize the Islamic Republic of Iran and some other Muslim countries for assisting Palestine should come forward to bear the burden of such support so that others are relieved of this Islamic duty. But if they lack the ability and courage to do so, instead of criticism and causing hindrance, they should appreciate the dutiful and courageous steps taken by others.

Respected audience! You who are present at this conference are thinkers and specialists about the problem of Palestine. Today our historical duty is not to repeat the bland statements and torpid theories of the past, but to suggest approaches for liberating Palestine from the oppression of the Zionist regime.

Our proposal is a solution which is in total agreement with democracy and can form a common logical basis. That proposal is that all those who have a legitimate stake in the territory of Palestine, including Muslims, Christians and Jews should choose their own system of government in a general referendum. All Palestinians who have borne for years the ordeals of exile should also participate in this referendum.

The western world should know that non-acceptance of this solution will imply an absence of commitment to democracy, which it always claims to support. The failure to pass this test will further expose its double standards. Palestine was also the focus of an earlier test, when the west didn’t want to accept the result election in the west Bank and Gaza which brought the Hamas government into office. Those who accept democracy so long as it results in achieving their aims are war-mongering adventurers. If they talk about peace, it is nothing but lies and deception.

The reconstruction of Gaza is one of the most urgent problems of Palestine.

The Hamas government – which was elected by a decisive majority of the Palestinians and whose epical resistance, which saddled the Zionist regime with defeat, is the brightest page in Palestinian history of the last hundred years- should be the centre of all reconstruction efforts. It will be appropriate for the Egyptian brothers to open the way for aid to move in and allow Muslim countries and nations to carry out their duty in this regard.

In conclusion, I honor the memory of the martyrs of the 22-day war. With their blood they made the Palestinian Gaza a matter of pride for Islam and Arabs. I implore Gods mercy and forgiveness for them.

In addition, I invoke His blessing for all the martyrs of Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan and for all martyrs of Islam, as well as for the pure spirit of our magnificent leader, the late Imam Khomeini.

I beseech God, the most High, to exalt Islam and Muslims, to bring Muslim nations closer to one another, and bring a daily increasing awakening to the Islamic world.

May peace and Allah mercy and His blessings be upon you.*

 

 

 

 

Opening remarks by His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani,

 Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly *

In the Name of God, the compassionate, the Merciful

Let me thank the wise leader of the revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei may the Almighty bless him- for his wise remarks and outlining the sound logic of Moslems in being specially sensitive to the plight and sufferings of the Palestinian people.

As the wise leader has said the defense of the Palestinian nation has Arabic, Islamic and human dimensions and it is finding yet other dimensions – as a result a heavier responsibility put on our collective shoulders.

The Palestinian issue is a major event in human history and nearly unprecedented. Millions of people have been displaced.  Millions more, in the past sixty years have become hostages in the occupied territories. But these are a few aspects of this tragic event. The design of those who have constructed Israel, calls for supremacy over all Islamic states and their preoccupation with daily occurrences. In recent years American adventurism and the creation of repeated wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine have laid this plot bare.

However, on closer examination one appreciates that because of the vigilance of the resistance – which has evolved- many US and Israeli plots have been failed.

The US must not assume that by sending more envoys to the region and statements in support of Israel, it can change the course of events and by organizing a carnival of conferences and striking authoritarian poses can influence the will of the resistance. Today the world is clamoring for fundamental change in the existing ideas and traditional plans for peace rather than tactics.

The Tehran conference intends to realistically approach the Palestinian issue and its related events. The issue of Palestine involves a chain of adventurous events. I am hopping that the attending scholars can convey a realistic picture to the public.

I also thank the attending Parliamentary delegations and pundits from different Islamic states.

Vasalam, O, Alaikom Va Rahmatollah *

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Dr. Mahmmoud Ahmadinejad,*

President of the Islamic Republic of Iran

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

I pray to the God Almighty to give me this opportunity to participate in this Conference.

I would like to congratulate birthday of Prophet of Islam, scent of prophet hood and the great gift of God to you and human society and we consider holding the Conference in this month (Rabiol aval) as a good omen. While welcoming all of you, I do hope this Conference will bring fruitful and constructive conclusions. 

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Distinguished Audience,

The sorrow of Palestine is not only the story of sufferings of the people of Palestine for 60 years, but rather it is an old wound on the shoulder of humanity.

It is quite clear for everyone that Zionist Regime has emerged from several big lies of Zionist and colonial powers for dominating not only over Islamic region but all over the world.

During the period of negligence of nations, the dominion powers, plunderers and killers who were not satisfied with their two hundred years domination over world and who massacred about one hundred millions during the world wars first and second, by pre-mediated and step by step plans, committed the most horrible crimes in the history. The story of holocaust, a nation without homeland and a homeland without a nation, pretending to be oppressed and innocent, and the big lies during our century are all nothing rather than beginning of committing crimes and occupation.

Decades of displacement of more than five millions people from one nation, committing thousands of crimes, starting several destructive wars, occupying other territories, committing thousands of terrors and assassinations, catastrophe of Diryasen, Jenin, Sabra and Shatila, Gana and the last one oppressed Gaza, more than sixty years of humiliation and threat of nations, are all a part of the mission of illegal and false Zionist Regime.

Today it is clear that the imposition of this Regime is not for supporting Jews but it is as a result of plans of some powers emerged after second world war and the mission of this Regime is permanent threat and prevention of progress of nations and preparing the ground for the domination of the said powers over the world and region, creating disunion as well as paving the ground for finding market for the sale of western made weapons and plundering oppressed people and even dominating over the people of Europe and U.S.

In fact the Zionist Regime is the poisonous sword and trick of world Zionist network and imperialist powers in our region and whole of the world.

Under pretext of protecting security of this Regime the development of nations must be stopped and esteemed leaders who are committed only to national interests such as honorable president of Sudan should face pressure so that do not resist against them.

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters

Distinguished Audience,

By the grace of the God Almighty the era of cruel relations which was raised during Second World War and period of imperialist had come to an end, and the Zionist Regime is falling down. So in this regard I would like to refer to certain points as follows:

The issue of Zionist Regime is not an  issue between Arab-Zionist or Jew-Islam or an issue of  Middle East only, but the establishment of this Regime is consider as an insult to humanity and all the fair-minded people  and justice seeking people of the world considered this Regime as an opposition to their legitimate rights. The Zionism is not a religion but it is a way and custom with satanic aims. Basically the Zionists are neither Jews nor Christians, and they do not have any religious entity. They do not have any humanistic nature and character too.

Zionist front is a party with maximum two thousands staff and several thousand agents which dominated over financial, political centers as well as mass media of European and American governments. It is regrettable that some people have not yet believed that Zionist Regime is nothing rather than occupation and violation of human rights and in fact  its philosophy is to create corruption, disunion, threat… etc. and that is why its crimes and aggression are still continuing.

The only solution for Palestine issue and Al-Qods is firstly to pay respect to the fundamental rights of the people of Palestine for having self-determination. All Palestinians including Muslims, Christians and Jews, should have the right to participate in a free election and choose their own ruling system and to establish their own government in all over the territory of Palestine.

The continuation of the existence of Zionist Regime even in one inch of Palestine territory means continuation of crimes, occupation, threat and insult in this territory.

The legal resistance of Palestinians guarantees the rights of the people of Palestine and force the world Zionism and its supporter to accept free election, and legal resistance of Palestinian people, the same people who were able to defeat the Zionist Regime during the Gaza war.

Today , we should follow seriously the aim of establishing a global front against Zionism and supporting the people of Gaza and Palestine from one hand and punishing the Zionist perpetrators on the other hand, so that by saving Palestine and establishing independent state to free the world from racial discrimination attitudes  and occupation.

We should make efforts so that to free Security Council from unilaterally domination of certain Zionist supporters and to become a center in the service of real interests and security of the people of the world.

We know that many people of the Europe and America are very dissatisfy of Zionist sovereignty  over the right of self-determination for Palestinians and the Zionist behavior, but have been siege under political pressure of their own government. Now is the time to break the silence and to reveal their own freedom and do not allow that their interests and dignity to be violated any more.

The powerful states who are supporter of this false regime can not play mediatory role and experience has shown that their plans have always been to the benefit of Zionists. My suggestion to them is not to humiliate their own nations any more and turn to right route of justice and that is to their own benefit. If they are looking for real change the above mentioned fact can be considered as constructive measures for establishing peace and security.

Esteemed Friends,

Experience has shown that for the basic and durable correction of the situation of the world and establishing prosperous life full of love, affection and peace, we should implement the just laws and just and honest leaders should govern over the world so that perfect talents to be flourish.

By the grace of the God Almighty, the human community is changing towards monotheism and seeking justice. This is divine promise which will be materialize by emergence of promised man of Ummah  deserve son of Prophet of Islam, His Eminence Hazrat Mehdi (PBUH) along with Jesus Christ and then the world will witness happiness. So my friends join us to have a share in this great and eternal event.

At the end I would like to express my thanks and appreciations to our brother His Excellency Dr. Larijani, Honourable Speaker of the Islamic Consultative Assembly as well as Hojatol Islam Mohtashamipour and all of you.*

Speech presented by  H.E Dr. Mosses Abu Marzough

Deputy Head of Hamas Political Bureau

 

In the Name of God, the Almighty

His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei, supreme leader of the Islamic of Republic of Iran,

His Excellency Mr. Mahmmoud Ahmadinejad, Esteemed president of the Islamic Republic of Iran,

His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani, Honorable Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly,

His Excellency Seyyed Ali Akbar Mohtashamipour,Distinguished secretary of Conference,

Dear Sisters and Brothers, Distinguished Audience,

Heads of parties, members of Parliaments, Esteemed legal experts and scholars,

Salamo Aliakom Va Rahmatollah Va Barakatoh

The issue of Palestine in the political agenda is an important and significant issue which always remains in the minds and hearts of all the Muslims of the World. All the people of the world follow the issue of Palestine and daily crimes committed by occupiers against oppressed people of Palestine. So please accept our greetings from injured Palestine and from Al-Qods which face conspiracies all the time and from Gaza with lots of dignity and honor, while enemy is trying to destroy it.

Please accept our greetings on behalf of the brave Palestinian prisoners, wounded children, martyrdom families and all the supporters of Palestine cause and their resistance.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Undoubtedly there are two situations existing in Palestine: firstly what we all witnessed that means: mass killings of children and women. Since enemy could not face with brave Palestinian soldiers, thus it started to kill innocent and defenseless women and children. Secondly there are the resistance, stability and beliefs of the brave people of Gaza. So the first cause indicates the brutal behavior of Zionist enemy while Palestinians resist and relay on their national cause. and beliefs.

During the war we did not observed even once that people of Gaza leave the frontiers of war. While usually during the wars the people go and take refugee in the safe places. The people remained stable and resisted. They did not want to go any where else. This people very bravely faced the crimes of occupied regime. This is an honor for the people of Palestine. While many states tried to justify the crimes of Zionists in Gaza they were thinking that they will conquer in this war. The other aspect was uprising of the Islamic Ummah and freedom-loving peoples in the world, who were trying to support people of Palestine and their resistance. Undoubtedly the Zionist regime was defeated not only in the war frontiers but rather from moral point of view. This regime has lost its false justification in the field of its right for establishing occupied independent country in Palestine. Surely all the scenes of crimes committed against oppressed people of Gaza shall remain in the minds of the people of the world. Because this war will be the last war among states who claim to be moderate and peace seeking. They have used all the methods. They have even tried economic siege. No body can move easily in this region. They imposed siege in order to reach to their ominous objectives.

But Palestinians resisted for two years, in spite of all sufferings remained fidel To their cause. Then there was domestic conflict. But again the enemies were defeated. They started civil conflicts in Gaza in order to impose suppression on resistance. But again they were defeated. Today while they are entering Gaza with tanks, war fleets and thousands of soldiers still faced defeat. So they resort to other methods such as political one under pretext of the reconstruction of Gaza. But they will be defeated again. We Palestinians have always emphasized on solidarity and unity of all Palestine domestic groups vis-à-vis Zionist enemy.

For materialization of this objective we have tried to open all the doors and had taken steps for national reconciliation. Reconciliation in which all the people and groups in Palestine become united and create a program which supports national cause. At present different Palestinian groups are making serious talks for creating reconciliation among all the Palestinian groups.

All those who talk today about four lateral committee has forgotten that they had already said before that they are ready to cooperate with the government of Israel. They create conditions for dialogue while before did not created any condition for dialogue and talks. The most important is that they do not create any pre-condition for negotiation with Israel. I tell them you have repeatedly followed US and its allies. So for once come and join Palestinians. The nation which remain stable in Gaza and West Bank. So for once follow up the programs of the people of Palestine and be assure will gain victory.

Those who have faith on their people definitely shall gain victory.

The Gaza war started and continued while all the passages were closed, but finally the enemy was defeated and forcefully withdraw. Till now various talks had been held for calming the situation. The Palestinian and resistance groups were successful in all these dialogues and talks. Any way we think our only option for arriving to final victory, is resistance. So if there is any agreement for calming the situation that means to give opportunity to the enemy for strengthening its military powers resistance which is natural right of a nation. However sometimes situation is calm but that dose not means Palestine will accept occupation. So Palestine considers resistance as the only option for realizing its objective and creating independent state.

Here I would like to refer to the issue of reconstruction of Gaza. These days after Sharam Al Shiak conference, many states talk about this issue. But we believe that while tanks and military armament of Zionists could not defeat Palestine and Gaza, definitely the policy of creating disunion and false pretext of reconstruction also can not defeat Palestine. We believe that reconstruction is natural right of the people of occupied lands. But reconstruction should not be based on political conspiracy. Without pre-conditions we accept reconstruction of Gaza. I should say that any condition for Palestinians which cause damage to the freedom of the people of Palestine and their right of self determination shall not be accepted by us. So we faced all the conspiracies of enemy and their military attacks, so please do not try to use other means of conspiracy under pretext of reconstruction.

Realization of national unity and solidarity is an objective which we follow. Reconstruction of Gaza is basis duty on our shoulders. So we do hope that by Grace of the God Almighty all these talks and dialogues to be in the interests of the people of Palestine.

At the end I sincerely thank the organizers of this conference and particularly people of the Islamic Republic of Iran for supporting the Palestinian resistance. Also I would like to thanks the distinguished participants and all the freedom-loving people of the world for supporting Palestine and its cause.

With greetings to all the martyrs of Forghan war. With greetings to all the brave and heroic soldiers who are in the prisons of Zionist regime. I tell all of them that very soon the sun shall raise and morning will arrive. So they ask when? And according what the God Almighty says:

“when will it be say’ maybe it has drawn nigh” (17:51)

            Thank you

 

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Nabieh Berry *

Head of The Parliament of Representative of Lebanon

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

At first I would like to thanks Dr. Ali Larijani, Esteemed head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly for holding this Conference with the title of "Palestine Symbol of resistance, Gaza Victim of Crime".

It is an honor for me to be here in Tehran capital of revolution and movement which after collapse of shah closed Israel embassy and instead of that established Palestine embassy. Once again on behalf of the people of Lebanon I would like to thanks the Islamic Republic of Iran and the late Imam Khomeini, leader and founder of the great Islamic revolution and also His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei, supreme leader of Islamic Republic of Iran and Dr. larijani head of the Islamic consultative Assembly, government and all the people of Iran for their support from resistance and their aid and assistance to Lebanon and Palestine in order to free Palestine from Zionist occupiers.

Also I avail myself of this opportunity to express my gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for supporting oppressed people of Palestine and national cause of this country and its support from Al-Qods and Islamic, Christian and humanitarian heritage of this country.

Before any thing I should say that holding of this Conference at this political juncture indicate that the third war of Israel against people of Palestine is not yet finish, and still continuing. In this regard the results of recent elections in Israel in which extremist group have come to power prove this fact regarding continuation of war in future.

Also it is necessary to refer to this point that Zionist regime after each war uses various methods in order to destroy the effects of its crimes and to cover the crimes committed by its military forces against innocent people and as a result taking attention of public opinions to other issues rather than the issue of Palestine.

This Conference provide appropriate opportunity for giving reasons regarding third war which is suppose to be started against people of Palestine.

The reason for war against Gaza was the changes in anticipated results of parliament election of Zionist regime. But war brought opposite results and emphasize the fact that Israel move towards extremist.

Regarding military reason of war we must say that Zionist regime made all its efforts to gain once again the credit that lost during the war with southern part of Lebanon and defeat of Israeli army in different parts of Jabalia during war against Gaza strip in 2008.

In this regard we should emphasize that the strategy of Israel in the beginning of its surprise and brutal attack, could not be materialized any of the objectives which were declared before war.

His Excellency Mr. Chairman,

Distinguished participants,

Whit regard to main aspects of war we should say that Zionist regime by destroying all the possibilities of living including houses, public and private administrations and infrastructures, tried to destroy Gaza strip and make it as a camp for refugees.

It is necessary to mention that 1/3 of the people living in Gaza strip before recent war of Israel lived in the camps for refugees and the rate of unemployment in Gaza was about 45% which is highest rate in the world.

As we said before, the goal and objective of Israel for changing Gaza strip to damaged area for long time, is to show that reconstruction of Gaza is useless because Israel will never led an area which Hamas call it Boostan (means garden and because it is the base for Iran and it threaten many moderate Arab states) to be reconstructed. But the fact is that Zionist regime destroyed Gaza strip in order to force its people to go somewhere else and this means forcing people of Gaza strip to go to Egypt and thus pave the ground for second cleansing operation against Arabs living in occupied territories of 1948 with the title of "without loyalty never citizenship". Loyalty here dose not means being loyal to terrorist organizations but rather being loyal to Israel and government of Israel.

Also I would like to recall that right wing of Zionist regime which has majority votes of Zionists along with certain parties in Washington and western countries, once again give the slogan of continuation of occupation and establishing further settlements. Therefore I would like o alert our Palestinian brothers in the field of the risk and danger of disunion and differences that might be created.

It is better that if Palestinian groups instead of intensify the differences, wait and see weather future cabinet of Netanyahu will agree to implement its obligation particularly in the field of establishing two independent countries! Netanyahu the future prime minister of Zionist regime while declared to agree with establishment of a Palestinian country without sovereignty in certain parts of Wes Bank, has already provided a ground for not being obliged to its obligations. The result of recent elections was like firing a gun to all the solutions for the two countries.

In the field of humanitarian aspect of war which is main topic of our Conference, we should say that the Israeli army just like before has committed brutal genocide and massacre. The Israeli bombs had been launched against women, children, schools etc in Gaza. Of course if we study the rate of killings of women and children in Gaza, we will come to know the confirmation of the above mentioned. Maximum rate of killing of children had taken place in Palestine, because the army of Zionist regime follows the policy of forcing Palestinians to leave their homeland, creating Jewish settlements in these territories, following policy of genocide and massacre and etc.

If we refer to Direyasin massacre and genocide on 9 April 1948 as a symbol of tragic event in Palestine, genocide of Bahr Al Gamar on 8 April 1970, Sabra and Shatila massacre on 16 and 17 September 1982 as symbol of crime of 1980, and Ghana massacre on 18 April 1996, all these massacre and crimes indicate the commitment of crimes of Israel in Palestine which we can call them as symbol of crimes in third millennium.

Israel had already confessed that they believe that Lebanon war is considered by the world and Arab states as a victory against the most powerful army in Middle East. Gaza defeated Israel with resistance and its simple arms such as hand made missiles and stone.

Mr. Chairman, Distinguished participants, 

Today with regard to the changes achieved in US, I am sure all the members of Obama cabinet and those who are active behind political curtains all know who is responsible for maintaining peace in Middle East.

Today US has golden opportunity to create peace in Middle East instead of dispatching arms to this region, because only US can control Israeli crimes in order to maintain international and regional peace and security.

US should at least even once confess to the rights of Palestinian in establishing independent country, to have right of self determination and right of return of refugees to their motherland.

Today the Zionists are not able to achieve peace among them as a result of election, the important point is that those Israeli who feel sorry about Palestinian situation want to establish self-governing state with check-point stations to be control and monitor by security and military forces of Zionist regime.

Many of the experts of Middle East in Obama administration know that whatever is going on in the region is noting rather than new atmosphere for creating further violence.

The slogans of development and organizing national regime without democracy just like ignoring the result of election of Palestine Parliament, cause disaster. In any case we have hope on resistance and we make our efforts for its survival. We not only have hope on those who support resistance, but we also have hope that self-governing administration continue to support the amendment of infrastructure role of the PLO in the life of the people of Palestine as the only legal representative of the Palestinian people and to all other national options such as resistance.

Also we should emphasize that the most powerful arm for defense is the arm of national unity and solidarity. In fact without unity and solidarity, there will be no peace and security.

Establishing Palestine national unity without making confidence among Arab relations including relations of Syria and Saudi-Arabia and Syria and Egypt and without making confidence and relations between Arabs and Iran and Arabs and Turkey, then it will be useless.

Mr. Chairman and distinguished participants,

In supporting Palestine issue I would like to emphasize on the following points:

Emphasize on this point that Palestine issue is the main issue of the Arab world, Muslims and all the noble people of the world.

Opposing any security agreement between US and Israel.

Supporting legitimate rights of the people of Palestine for resistance and opposing any efforts for calling resistance as a terrorist act.

Condemning state terrorism and condemning war crimes and establishing a fact finding committee and condemning war criminals.

Opposing Israel for not implementing international resolutions regarding Palestine, Syria, Shaba Plantation and occupied heights of Kafar Shoba.

Opposing all the settlements plans for refugees and displaced people.

Establishing an institute with the objective of promoting public opinions regarding:

historical aspects of Palestine issue

Considering Palestine issue as an issue of displaced nation.

Racial discrimination policies of Zionist and its expansionist policies ,

Establishing settlements as a tool for imposing realties.

Supporting Palestine dialogue till revival of national unity and amendment of the structure of self-administration and PLO, on the basis of democracy and struggles which call for public participation and realization of Palestine cause and also participation of all groups in society.

Supporting the reconstruction plan in Gaza strip on the basis of the ideology of united Palestine, and removing siege and opening passages and freeing and liberating war prisoners.

10) Requesting for destruction of Jewish settlements and also racial discriminatory wall.

11) Condemning the continuation of the effort of Zionist regime for Judaization of Al Qods and effacement of its historical identity and destroying holy and sacred places.

At the end on behalf of the people of Lebanon, I would like to thanks the Islamic Republic of Iran. *

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Dr. Ramezan Abdullah Shallah*

Esteemed Secretary General of the Islamic Jahad

 

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Excellencies,

Esteemed Sisters, Brothers and Audience,

At first I would like to extend my gratitude to the leader and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran for hosting this conference and supporting Palestinian people and their justice-seeking cause. I thank you all for participating in this conference. Your participation indicates your solidarity with Palestinian people and Palestinian cause. This fact indicates that Palestine issue is in the heart of every Muslim and every Arab and all the freedom-seeking people of the world.

As your representative I would like to send my greetings to the brave people of Palestine in the settlements and other parts of the world. Here I would like to send my greetings to all the Muslim and Arab Ummah and freedom-seeking people of the world who support oppressed and deprived people of Palestine.

When we see the life of Palestinian families in their tents in Gaza, under rain and chill of coldness and under shelter of bombardments, then we come to know that the problems are still continuing for Palestinians Living in tents which indicate that the defeat of 1948 is still continuing and our Ummah has a great duty and responsibility on its shoulder in order to help oppressed people of Palestine in Al-Qods and other parts of Palestine.

We pray to the God Almighty that this conference had been held at the time when there are the signs of peace among Palestinians and recently the negotiations had been held in Egypt in this regard. Perhaps this event may be an opportunity to decrease the sufferings of the people of Gaza. In spite of all these negotiations we do not want to be unrealistic and to have vague hopes on these talks.

Unfortunately we should say that the impasse and problem in which the Palestinians are facing, is a huge impasse and problem which has not been created as a result of separation of Fateh and Hamas. We believe the conciliation which was raised could save Palestine cause. Perhaps this move can help us to certain extent and solve some of the problems. But definitely it cannot solve the historical and infrastructural crisis of Palestinian. Any efforts for solving present crises should be done through studying the roots of crisis and its real reason. One of the main important issues which were raise is that there is a lack of united views in managing struggle against Zionist enemy. The disputes among Palestinians are concerning with key points of a national plan. There are differences of views regarding aims and objectives: whether to free Palestine or to establish a state of Palestine. For materializing this goal whether we should resist or negotiate? We believe to give respond to all these questions, is the base for starting any activity and effort and on the other hand to give incorrect response to all these questions will lead to further crisis just like the past.

Therefore we declare that if Palestinians get closer to each other in order to find a solution for ending this crisis without considering and responding to the basic issues, then it is not a solution but rather it is a kind of escape from this crisis which will lead to nothing.

I take your permission to refer to some important issues which are included in national plan and they are the aims and objectives of struggle.

Since 1974 and till the independence of Algeria the objective of Palestinian national plan was only to establish an independent country within the boarders determine in 1967. The objective which was declared before and was suppose to be materialize by Oslo treaty, but today after 21 years since declaration of independence and after 15 years since Oslo treaty, what have we achieved?

The Zionist plan has put its shadow over every thing and has not left any country.

More than 50% of West Bank is under control of enemy. Today we witness Jewish settlement in Al Qods while their real inhabitants are displaced and exiled from Al-Qods . The same thing happens for people near Al-Aqsa Mosque under the pretext that they are searching for Jewish statue.

So where the state of Palestine shall be establish? Is it a segregated state in Ramallah which through a Tunnel is connected to the biggest prison of history, that is a Gaza or perhaps the solution is to change West Bank with some of Nagab soil.

Now this imagination has come to an end, but not because the Palestinian lost the opportunities but rather because this solution was not based on reality from very beginning. How 80% of the territories had been given to enemies and enemies became a criminal and started genocide and massacre, and then try to revive the 20% which has been left.

The response of Oslo treaty has been left for our future destiny and Israel is repeating this response every day by expanding its attacks, and thus is increasing Jewish settlements in West Bank. Some official resources of Palestine responded that all these efforts would threaten the peace process. For them it is important to dominate and negotiation is not important. The most important thing is the peace process to be continued. The peace that has not yet materialize and only its voice through the bombs and missiles and prohibited weapons which we witnessed during Israel attack to Gaza, can be seen and heard.

The result of the recent election in Israel was in fact nothing rather than lay promises and conspiracies extended from Spain to Annapolis, and the return of Netanyahu to power.

Yes, the issue of establishing Palestinian state was nothing rather than lie which was raised during the balance of power and it was raised not because it is just issue or a response to legitimate rights of Palestinian. How these dream of peace also had became a nightmare because it did not had any logic from very beginning and establishment of a state could not be possible before suppressing an occupation and create national freedom. Do you know any nation in the process of history, who was under domination and occupation but at the same time reached an agreement with occupiers?

The plan for liberation in fact destroyed the national plan of Palestine and programmed for national liberation which led to establishment of national liberation movement. The self governing state could reduce the pressure of occupation without ending the occupation. Even it has been said that self-governing state is the only power in the world that support its own enemy. This is not what we say but the entire important philosophers think so.

Israel and Zionist leaders did not accept establishment of a state as a solution for Palestine issue but they accepted this state only on the basis of Israel interests. According to Zionist ideology the Jewish state is considered as the most important aim rather than Israel territory.

For making myself clear I should say that we are not agree to establish a state because according to our belief Palestine is our country and we do not agree to coexist with our occupying enemy which has occupied forcefully our territories. As a solution 100% of a country should be divided but this division has been done over 20% of territories. Therefore many people believe that establishment of one united state is much more just rather than the solution based on establishment of two governments and states.

In fact Sharon and his followers decided to find a solution based on establishment of two states. This is a dangerous game. When Sharon gave this recommendation for establishing two states, whoever did not doubted this decision of Sharon should think twice and hear what Lieberman said when again gave same solution ( especially when Lieberman suggested the same solution). He wanted to be free from Palestinian on the basis of the limitation decisions of 40 and thus faced us with new defeat, which was the same catastrophe as 48. The full responsibility of this defeat was on the shoulder of those who accepted to establish a state in West Bank and a state in Gaza Strip and at the same time ignore other Palestinians in other parts of world.

Whatever has been said is not the end of tragedy but if establishment of an imaginary country is the main goal and self – governing state is only a tool for continuation of the present game, then future will be full of tragic events not only for Palestinians but for Arab states too.

This fear exist for future that West Bank move toward Jordan and Gaza move toward Egypt.

Here we should refer to a plan of Zionist Jon Bolton and the writings of Thomas Fredman regarding destroying five countries. We should recall the conspiracies of Malak Abdoulah Second r. Here I would like to say very briefly that if establishment of a government became an objective for us then we should look for a country too. If we search the solution on the basis of balance of power and since occupiers are stronger than us then will not accept to establish a real state with sovereignty. On the other hand the weaker side shall remain under domination of occupiers. There for we announce here that it is not possible to establish a state which has relations with its occupiers. This state can be established only by suppression of occupiers. But this theory that a temporary state in relation with Jordan to be establish, is nothing rather than new conspiracy which if it come to practice, it shall not only destroy Palestine but Jordan too.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

For facing all the present and future challenges, we should present a new strategy for Palestine without going in to details with regard to war which will lead to continuation of occupation.

This new strategy should be recommended on following points:

To end negotiations this started long ago in Spain and Oslo. This choice has been completely defeated. It can only be stop if Palestine issue is destroyed. The hope for achieving a just solution with regard to present balance of power and the changes and development of Zionist Regime, is in fact the continuation for creating a condition for destroying Palestine cause.  Israel after defeat on 2006 and its recent defeat on 2009 in Gaza is not the same Israel of 67 or Israel of the time of Oslo treaty.

The self – governing state should be established as such that it does not serve the Israel's interests and does not coexist with occupiers. The peace and conciliation on the basis of Oslo treaty is not at all a national plan. To establish a self governing state without any sovereignty or capability is a great problem. The solution is that national plan of Palestine shall be review firstly on the basis of liberation movement plan and not on the basis of conciliation. In this regard the Palestine liberation organization should be considered and act as a multi-lateral framework for collecting all groups and Palestinian forces.

The strategy to create resistance as an option has been accepted by all national groups. Thus the Gaza could be a base for defending all invasions, and supporting resistance in West bank. But changing West Bank to be under sovereignty of Israel will not lead to any thing rather than changing Gaza to a library for experiences and plans of U.S. and thus the security of Israel shall be provided by Palestinians. This in nothing rather than national betray.

Arabs and Muslims should know their national and religious duties and to act on the basis of moral and humanitarian obligations and to support Palestine people and their cause. The peace initiative of Arabs regarding this plan that it should not remain on the table of negotiation is a positive step. It has already been proved that Israel is not willing for peace but rather for killing and destruction and through their criminal acts they are willing to increase their domination in the region, like the time started attacking women and children in Gaza.

The Arab and Muslim States are denying  their responsibilities with regard to Palestine from one hands and cruelty of Israel on the other hand which is dangerous not only for Palestine but for all countries of the world. The Zionists plan is trying to create an agenda with regards to priorities in the region which is not to the interests of Arabs and Muslims but to the interests of colonial powers and Israel only. The effort for creating enemies in the region not only has any interests for our Ummah but it will increase the position of Zionism in the region.

At the end I would like to refer to the important issue of reconstruction of Gaza. The promises which we heard by the so called granting countries were not enough. The problems and sufferings of the people of Gaza are very hard. At present the promises for granting aid would lead to deprivation of one group over other. This means ignoring the realities in Palestine scene and Gaza Strip.

Adoption of this kind of positions not only will lead to continuation of disputes and problems, but it will lead to misuse of the problems of Palestine. Thus the perpetrators will get the chance to materialize their political objectives.

Once again I would like to emphasize that Israel shall be consider as our permanent and historical enemy and it should wipe out from the scenes. The sun will raise that day that all human beings will be awaken and will see that there is no Israel. This goal will not be materialize by miracle but rather with the efforts of people.

"The God Almighty says: it shall be for them. So when the second promise came (we raised another people) that they may bring you to grief and that they may enter the mosque as they entered it the first time, and that they might destroy whatever they gained ascendancy over with utter destruction." (17:51)

We pray to the God Almighty for the liberation of prisoners of war and blessing to all martyrs of Islam.*

Speech presented by His Excellency Mr. Mahmmoud Abrash,

Head of House of Representatives of Syria

 

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Greeting to the Islamic Revolution on 30th anniversary of its victory,

Greeting to the revolutionary Iran which supported Palestine by breaking off its relations with Zionist Regime after victory of the Islamic revolution and supported Palestine cause.

Greeting to Gaza and to its children, women and martyrs. Greeting to Gaza in which military attacks and long economic sanction and siege put pressure on its vein; Gaza which was attacked by the bombs made in America and prohibited arms; of course Israel does not consider any value for Muslims and Arabs,

Greeting to Al-Qods a holy and blessed city,

Greeting to Al-Aqsa Mosque which is the First Quibble of all Muslims.

Greeting to the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran and His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran for inviting us to participate in this conference in order to support Gaza and Palestine cause.

Greeting to all of you for participating in this historical meeting and supporting our goals and objectives.

Dear Brothers,

The issue of Palestine and Al-Aqsa which is the first Quibble of all Muslims, are Islamic, Arabic and humanitarian issues. Therefore all the Arabs and Muslims should join together and make united efforts and position for confronting Israel aggressions and their supporters including the United States of America.

Dear Brothers,

Syria defines its relations with other countries with regard to its understanding of the characteristics of Zionist enemy and its discriminatory and expansionist policies. Syria strongly believes that only by establishing independent country of Palestine with the capital of Al-Qods and with return of refugees to Palestine and by returning to the former boarders of 4 Jun 1967, then it is possible to establish real peace between Arabs and discriminatory regime of Zionist.

Dear Brothers,

 our relations delineated on the basis of the concept of the revolution of Iran and Iran's relation with Palestine cause and conflicts between Arabs and Israel and western plans against Arabs and Muslims, so if we review the characteristics of relations between Iran and Syria, it indicates that there is strong concept of resistance against western and anti-Islamic projects.

Syria has good relations with most of the countries of the world like Latin American countries, European countries or African or Asian countries, and it has good relations even with different political and cultural parties. Its relations with other countries and parties are based on understanding of the Palestine cause and conflict between Arab and Israel. Syria has balanced relations with all Palestinian groups and is making a lot of efforts to create solidarity and unity among all Palestinian groups for confronting against aggression. In Syria we give great importance to the role of Iran as a friend of Arab world and we know that before victory of revolution Iran was one of the two sides of arm which siege Arabs and today all these hue and cry regarding Iran's nuclear program is for decreasing the influence and role of Iran in Arab-Israel conflict.

Dear Brothers,

Invasion of Israel against Gaza is a part of the 60 years story of war and invasion against Arab and Muslims. Israel war against Gaza is in fact the third war between Palestine and Israel. The dream of Palestinians for establishing independent country has changed to a nightmare. Gaza war had been started by Israel in order to destroy resistance and to introduce new Middle East for world.

Zionist Regime thought about 2 year’s siege of Gaza. The siege that was strengthen by domestic disputes between Palestinian groups and Arab States, disputes between Arabs and Iran, silence of international community and unlimited support of United States of America to Israel. Thus a brutal invasion started against Gaza and its goals and objectives were to destroy men, women, children, schools, hospitals and U.N. centers…etc.

Dear Brothers; Israel considers old-testament expansionist theory as its own theory and thus has close up all the ways for creating peace. The peace that Israel thinks about is nothing rather than our acceptance of expansionist policies, disintegration of region and obedience of Israel’s policies.

At present, we should find solutions for disputes between Palestinians groups and Arabs and Iran and to end any kind of negotiations between Arabs and Israel until Israel stop creating Jewish settlements. Israel is the only country that invaded Arab states and Palestine and violated all Islamic and Arab values. Therefore any kind of effort for creating a change in this understanding even if it has been done for good  intention, it will be only to the interest of Israel and its theory for changing the Arab-Israel conflict to a Arab-Arab conflict or Arab-Islamic conflict.

Dear Brothers,

The issues of Gaza, Al-Aqsa Mosque and Al-Qods are not only Palestinians but also Arabic, Islamic and humanitarian issues. If Israel could change Holocaust as an issue for world conscious, then why should we limit Gaza Strip and West Bank only to Palestinians? Why should not we consider this issue as an international and Islamic issue and thus together we should condemn Zionist aggressions in international courts and also should try to stop their expansionist policies.

Dear Brothers, if today they attack Gaza, tomorrow they attack Damascus, Mecca or other Arabic cities. The Zionists because of their aggressive culture they do not consider any differences among impious, nationalist or white or black and thinks only of imposing their expansionist policy.

The Zionist Regime does not look for peace. In fact Israel had responded to Arabs by attacking Palestinians. People of Israel had increased their enmity extremist, discriminatory behavior and conspiracies to the extent that only those persons will come to power in Israel who has more dislike towards Arabs. It is for many years that Zionist Regime thinks about making Al-Qods Jewish and that's why it started to make Jewish settlements inside Palestine and outside it and exiled all the Muslims and Christians from these settlements.

The Zionist enemy choused new policy while exiled Palestinians from Al-Qods in order to create new situation for itself. According to the statement of Minister of foreign Affairs of Israel, the Zionist Regime wants to exile about 1.5 million Palestinians from 1948 territories; Israel is looking to materialize this issue within the framework of racial discriminatory policy. So I end my speech by sending once again my greeting to revolutionary Iran, and to its leader and people. Also I send my greeting to my brother Mr. Ali Larijani who invited us to participate in this Conference.

Greeting to people of Gaza and West Bank, and finally greetings to all resistance groups in Arab Islamic and other countries of the world.

Greeting to all of you and our martyrs.

Assalamo Aleikom va Rahmatollah Va Barakato

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Seyyed Ebrahim Amin Al-Seyyed

Head of Hezbollah Political Council *

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Mr. Chairman,

Dear Brothers and sisters

With greeting to all of you, I would like to extend my gratitude to the responsible authorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran particularly to His Excellency Mr. Larijani for inviting us to participate in this conference.

Holding this conference in Tehran can be considered as natural and continuous process of Iran in supporting the people of Al-Qods and Palestine and gives great priorities to their issues. This responsibility is as a result of the plan of action of the late Imam Khomeini. The great Imam who teaches people of the world the signs and ways of prophets. He was an intellectual and religious scholar who followed Holy Qoran and prophet.  He brought loftiness and prosperity for the people of the world and future generations. So I should say: "my great leader, at present we are next to you and following you and by your guidance we are leading resistance and will achieve victory. My great leader with your eyes, we look at Al-Qods and we feel you every ever as our Imam. The distance between us and Al-Qods is like the distance between us and your eyes.

My dear Imam we came here to achieve victory on the basis of your guidelines and then we will grant you this victory with love and loyalty."

But today the conscious have forgotten awareness and we cannot give anything to these conscious except a shame. Because the last signs of honor have changed to shame and ignorance.

Al-Qods is running away from its usurpers and all the conciliation conferences and meetings, and is coming to you my dear Imam and is touching your soul and wants to replace itself in your heart. The heart that can place in itself all the oppressed people of the world, and does not have even one place for an oppressor.

Al-Qods is coming to you my Imam and is presenting its flag to you.

My Imam, they consider you as a great change that came to give his messages and brought development.

My Imam, they came to know you and saw David, Mosses, Jesus Christ and Mohammad (P.B.U.H). My dear Imam, they came to know you and saw Imam Ali in you, where he broke the door of Khibar.

My Dear Imam, we came to know you and consider you as a symbol of victory and dignity. We saw you as a message who has destroy certain groups.

They were looking for you in Lebanon but you came after them in Gaza,

They were looking for you in Gaza, but you came after them in ……..

They were looking for you in ….……

But you came after them with satellites and Medias ………

So where should they escape………

They will be destroy and disappear very soon.

Our struggle is the struggle based on values and faith.

Faiths have broken and destroy their atheism and infidel strategy.

Our struggle is based on our will and intention and with our firm will and intention we could defeat them and confront against their genocide and destructive weapons and massacre.

Our struggle is the struggle of leadership and our leadership destroys them. Our resistance leadership is the leadership of countries and people who defeated our enemy. Our struggle is the struggle of choices and options. The option of resistance against option of aggression and occupation. Our struggle in itself is a war and struggle of options. The struggle and war between the option of resistance from one hand and option of defeat and acceptance of conciliation from other hand.

This option of conciliation could not give us anything even a small part of our territories. The option of conciliation could not stop the war, aggression and genocide. This option could not save the children and could not support any woman. This option could not stop the construction of Jewish settlements. This option could not free even one war prisoner or give back to a Palestinian his house. This option could not bring back Al-Qods. It could not only materialize any of our objectives but rather it changes the option of conciliation to the option of resistance and by confronting resistance they try to destroy it. This option of conciliation change to a way for assisting aggressors and enemy and their conspiracies. This option consider enemy as his brother and close friend.

Yes, this is our suffering. The crisis which we are facing is as a result of this suffering. Lebanon and Gaza are very close to us.

So, in spite of all the things which have been said, we should make our efforts for materialization of the following issues:

We should have believed in God for achieving divine victory.

We should have confidence on the Islamic Republic of Iran and Syria and their roles and responsibilities.

We should have confidence to the leadership of His Eminence Imam Khamenei and responsible authorities and people of Iran.

Why I mention the name of Iran and leader of this country? Because you all know that during the time of Shah, the Shah was the guardian of Persian Gulf and friend of Israel. So why are you making conspiracies against Islamic Iran, the friend of all the Muslims and oppressed people of the world and enemy of Israel?

We should have confidence to the power of resistance and its potentiality and its will and intention in Lebanon.

We should cooperate with each other in order to construct Gaza, the symbol of resistance and to praise the honorable people of Gaza who resist all these atrocities with patience.

We should have confidence to the wills and intentions and uprising of the people and their participation in resistance during Zionist aggression against Lebanon and Gaza. We should have confidence on this people because they are the one who led to the defeat of cultural, psychological and political formulas of enemy in the region.

We should replace the culture of victory in Lebanon and Gaza with other defeated culture of enemy.

We should review and work on the consequences of invasion of U.S. against Iran and U.S. defeat in this invasion.

We should review the collapse of philosophy of capitalism and to recognize its political, military and security consequences.

We should think about unity, solidarity, cooperation, coordination and resistance in the region.

We should try to stop the efforts lead to division and religious conflict.

Victory is for resistance, and greetings to all the martyrs of Islam. Usurper regime days are numbered. Palestine will survive and Israel shall wipe out from the world map.*

Thank you.

Speech presented by His Excellency Dr. Ahmad Bahr,*

Acting Head of legislative parliament of Palestine

 

In the Name of God, the compassionate, the Merciful

The God Almighty says:

“And we desired to bestow a favor upon those who were deemed weak in the land, and to make them the Imams, and to make them the heirs, and to grant them power in the land, and to make firon and Human and  their hosts see from them what they feared. (28:5-6)”

His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani, Esteemed Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly,

Honorable Heads of Islamic and Arabic Parliaments,

Distinguished Leaders and Scholars,

With greetings in the Name of Gaza, land of resistance and from Al-Qods the first Quibble and holy shrine of all Muslims. With greetings in the name of Palestine territory and the outcry of small girls and boys who lost their families and houses and say: “va Islama”, va Moutasema”, va Araba”,

With greetings to all of you and to the Palestine prisoners and martyrs and particularly to Dr. Doviek, head of Palestinian legislative Parliament who is in Zionist prison at present.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Salamo Aliakom Va Rahmatollah Va Barakato,

At first on behalf of the people of Palestine I would like to thanks our brothers in the Islamic Republic of Iran for holding fourth international Conference "in support of Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of crime". We do hope by the grace of the God Almighty this Conference will be starting point to help and support people of Palestine.

Dear Brothers,

The Zionist enemy has started to brutally attack Gaza since 27 Dec 2008 for almost 22 days. During all these days the Zionist enemy used all kinds of prohibited weapons and bombarded Gaza with its military aircrafts. These aircrafts launched more than one thousands tons of phosphorous and explosive bombs in Gaza which all of them are internationally prohibited.

In all these crimes seven army divisions of Zionist occupiers were involved. During 22-days attack against defenseless people of Gaza about 1400 were martyred which were mostly woman and old people and 5500 people were wounded. As a result of this attack 20, 000 were displaced and homeless, and many ministries, public institutes, hospitals, and mosques and universities and schools were destroyed. The Zionist enemy in the black report of its crimes executed many civilian prisoners and massacre many Palestinian families such as Al-Samori and Al Dayh families. Even they destroyed the building of legislative parliament. Also Sayyed Sadom, representative of Palestinian parliament was martyred during Zionist attacks.

At present more than 40 representatives of Palestinian parliament and at top of them Dr. Dovik are kept in Zionist prisons under very bad conditions.

 

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

In spite of all these crimes and destructions, the people of Palestine by the grace of the God Almighty and through resistance and solidarity were able to force enemy to withdraw.

The enemy who did not achieve its goals which was destruction of legal government of Palestine and Ismail Haniyeh prime minister of Palestine.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

The victory of Gaza was divine miracle. Can you imagine the most powerful regime of the Middle East and fourth military power of world to be defeated by the resistance of Palestinians who had little possibilities and were totally defenseless people? This victory could be achieved only on the basis of divine will.

Victory of Gaza is the realization of the following verse of holy Oran. The God Almighty says:

You are certainly greater in being feared in their hearts than Allah; that is because they are a people who do not understand (59:13)

In another verse the God Almighty says:

“Those who were sure that they would meet their Lord said: How often has a small party vanquished a numerous host by Allah’s permission, and Allah is with the patient.”(2:249)

Gaza achieved victory and all the air attacks of the first day of Zionist regime were defeated. At the first day of attack more than 60 Zionist aircrafts within less than 3 minutes bombarded more than hundred thirty targets. This brutal attack was designed to defeat selected government of Palestine. But second day was surprising day because various police officers were located in different parts of Gaza to create security.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

In this conference on behalf of the people of Palestine we emphasize that we remain always stable and will continue our cause even if we would be killed and martyred and we will continue our resistance. We shall defeat not only from Palestine but rather from dignity of the Islamic Ummah. Therefore dear brothers please do not leave us alone in the frontiers. Please defend and support Palestine with Your arms and money. This is your religious duty.

Distinguished Audience,

Al Aqsa which is the place of Ascension of prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) is now facing with the most tragic event of history which is really unique in the process of history. Facing people to leave their houses and Al Qods which is their homeland, establishing Jewish settlements around Al Qods, continuing excavation below Al Aqsa mosque in order to destroy Al Aqsa and destruction of Palestinian houses under pretext of not having license for construction, are small parts of all these crimes committed by Israel.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Vis-à-vis all these obvious crimes committed by usurper Zionist, which injured the sentiments of one million Muslims in the world, shall we not adopt common position in this regard? What should do to condemn all these crimes? In this regard I would like to suggest to the conference the following points:

Supporting Palestine resistance particularly after the victory of Gaza, through providing comprehensive and broad-based programs so that the issue of Palestine to remain always alive in the conscious of the Islamic Ummah.

Establishing an international court in order to introduce terrorist leaders of Israel and Zionist regime as war criminals.

Emphasizing on Al-Qods as being Islamic and Arabic and being capital of Palestine forever and requesting the leaders of Arab and Islamic countries to fulfill their duties in helping and supporting Al-Qods and people living there, vis-à-vis the crimes committed by Zionist region.

Requesting the rapid reconstruction of Gaza and opposing to make this issue as Palestine issue. Also to consider the conditions set forth by United States for reconstruction of Gaza as an effort for political black-mail of refugees and prisoners of war.

Also we request for the further efforts of all international and Islamic parliaments to put further pressure over Zionist regime in order to free all the representatives who had been kidnapped and particularly Dr. Aziz Dovik, head of legislative parliament of Palestine.

Speech presented by His Excellency Abdoul Aziz Ziari,

Honorable Speaker of the House of Representatives of Algeria

 

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani, Distinguished Speaker of the Islamic Consultative Assembly,

Esteemed Heads of Parliaments,

Honorable Audiences

At first, I would like to extend my gratitude to the people, parliament and government of the Islamic Republic of Iran for hosting this Conference and also I avail myself of this opportunity to thank H.E. Dr. Larijani Distinguished Speaker of the Islamic Consultative Assembly for the warm hospitality extended to all of us.

Holding this Conference is another political effort made by the Islamic Republic of Iran just like its other efforts, in support of Palestine issue.

In this regard I would like to refer to the similarities existing between Iran and Algeria in the fields of respecting to the rights and freedom of people, their independency and preserving security and peace in the world. Also I avail myself of this opportunity to extend my congratulations as well as those of the people of Algeria on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and praise all the achievements gained by Islamic Iran which will lead to further progress and development.

Mr. Chairman,

The people of Algeria are very proud, firstly of your country because of your latest achievements in the fields of science and technology and secondly for the achievements gained by the Muslim countries in these fields, which bring a lot of progress and developments for human society. We believe that the efforts of our governments on international political relations depend on our obligations regarding humanitarian values and our scientific and economic capabilities.

Mr. Chairman, Distinguished Audience,

We have gathered once again to consider the consequences of Zionist crimes and continuous violation of human rights by this Regime and to find the way for creating further solidarity among Arab and Islamic countries.

You know very well that the following issues were emphasized during Istanbul meetings in Turkey:

Emphasize on supporting just struggle of Palestine people for defending their legitimate rights, and helping them to establish an independent country.

Emphasize on geographical unity of Palestine including unity between Gaza Strip and West Bank and occupied Al Qods and disagree with any plan concerning distribution and disintegration of this land.

Emphasize on the need to provide security for the citizens of Palestine and adopting necessary measures for granting aid to the people of Palestine.

Requesting UN for establishing an international fact-finding committee regarding violation of human rights in Palestine by Zionist regime.

Mr. Chairman, Distinguished Audience,

It is clear for everyone that the present situation in Middle East will endanger peace and stability of the region and world. The recent brutal attacks of Zionist Regime against Gaza have very negative effects on world public opinions. All the people of the world have condemned these attacks.

Majority of the people of the world already declared their solidarities with people of Palestine.

This global uprising in declaring solidarity with the Palestinians obliged all supporters of Palestine issue particularly Arabs and Muslims to reconsider their heavy duties vis-à-vis Palestine issue.

The present situation with all its positive and negative results obliged us to have interaction regarding Palestine issue and all other challenges. We should not be disappointed.

Mr. Chairman, Honorable Audience

We should all be united and have strong solidarity, this is a political must and holy duty for all supporters of Palestine issue.

Algerian delegation believes that the only response for making this solidarity is to create united position based on following principles:

To respect independence and sovereignty of Palestinians,

To grant aid and sincere assistance to our Palestinian brothers through supporting the efforts of Palestinian groups for materialization of their national solidarity.

To give serious support to Palestinians in the field of materializing their goals regarding establishment of an independent country.

To continue granting financial and non-financial aid to the people of Palestine and to strengthen the spirit of solidarity with this people in order to help them to overcome these crisis.

If we have common ideas regarding above-mentioned points, then we can have positive effects on international conventions at bilateral and multi lateral fields.

Mr. Chairman, distinguished Sisters and Brothers

At the end I do hope that this Conference shall materialize our goals and led to further promotion of public opinions in all political, legal, humanitarian, and moral fields regarding Palestine issue which is an issue of all freedom-loving people of the world.

I wish you all success *

Thank you

Va salamo Aleikom va Rahmatollah Va Barakato

 

 

speech presented by His Excellency Ayatollah Hashemi Shahroudi ,

Judiciary chief of the Islamic Republic of Iran’

Ayatollah Hashemi Shahroudi at the second day of conference on support of Palestine said: “to support people of Palestine and other oppressed people of the world is regarded as religious duty based on school of thought” .

Resistance arising of the beliefs and sacrify of the people of Gaza rests at core of attention.

Nowadays, victory of resistance, belief and bloodshed over the most advanced and destructive weapons and the latest technological progresses draw the attention of all countries of the world to Gaza and Palestine. European states and America had session in Sharma Al Sheikh to extend aid for the reconstruction of Palestine, the countries which themselves reached consensus to destroy Hamas and used all tricks and potentials to destroy Palestinians in Gaza Strip.

Nowadays, thanks to the resistance arising of belief and martyrdom of campaigners and people of Gaza, they shed crocodile tears for the reconstruction of Gaza. These days in Iran, the conference and gathering has been hold to support Palestine and to reveal the new trick of Zionists and its supporters. The comparison of participants of these two conferences and their slogans and speeches clearly shows the righteousness of this great gathering and its objectives and will.

The government of Hamas has no presence in Sharma-Al-Sheikh, the owner of this catastrophe has not been invited and instead of that the countries have been invited whose hands and tongues involved in this great-crimes, destruction and genocide.

The presence of heroes of the resistance and great victory at the Tehran conference clearly shows the righteousness of this gathering. Based on Islamic duty, Iran has been with the people of Gaza and Hamas government for combat and resistance against aggression and assault of Israel. Now, Iran is the place for exchange of views to help Hamas government to utilize this great victory and to reveal the plots of usurper regime of Israel and its supporters.

Sharma-Al-sheikh conference aiming to continue American and European objectives under the guise of one humanistic action and with the slogan of concern for the people of Palestine has exerted new pressure on Hamas and Palestine resistance.

President of France clearly says: "Hamas has not been invited, because insists on resistance. He considers this attitude as a punishment for Hamas".

The government which hosts the conference has declared that aid of Arabs and Persian Gulf Cooperation Council will be granted to Palestinian self – ruling entity, while self-ruling entity is not the legal party for the reconstruction of Gaza.

Now, the Zionist's lobby in America and Europe and some other countries follow the policy of confiscating the achievements of the Hamas and people of Gaza to the benefit of Zionist and reconciliatory faction, which are the major arrogance objective and the logic of domination system in the region. As long as justice seekers in Palestine, Lebanon , Iran , Iraq, Afghanistan, and throughout the world do not make reconciliation  with them, are always  charged with accusations such as terrorism, and being  evil  etc.

All oppressed, resistance and sacrificing nations of the world should know that the God Almighty and believers in God are winners.

It is quite clear that the support of Islamic Republic of Iran to the Palestinian people is regarded as a revolutionary and religious duty. Imam Khomeini's uprising on Khordad 15th began with the shouting against Zionist aggression against territory of Palestine. Imam who is the symbol of Khordad 15 uprising and founder of the Islamic Revolution outraged against shah that why we should give the Iranian oil to the usurper regime? Why allow Israeli commodities to be sold in the Iranian market? He says: “I have always said in my statement that Shah had always cooperated with Israel and when war between Muslims and Israel has reached to its turning point, Shah would still usurped Muslims oil and delivered it to Israel and this was one of the factors which I opposed it”. With one glance to Imam Khomeini's speeches and position, we find out that opposing Zionism and supporting oppressed people of Palestine is regarded as major principle and integral part of Islamic Revolution.

He, in a statement addressing to Islamic government and people declared:” Israel has waged war against Islamic States and it is incumbent on Islamic Nations to eradicate it. Extending aids to Israel, selling weapons and ammunition or oil to Israel is considered taboo and is against Islam.

Imam considers the main objective for establishing Israel among Islamic States in Middle East as a tool to fight against Islam and Muslims and he says in this connection "Excavation of Al Aqsa Mosque, the first Muslim Quibble, and destroying it is another example for the hostility of Israel with Muslims and Islam, and Muslims should resort only to Islam which is their common aspect against Israel.

Supporting Palestine and oppressed people is a religious duty. Palestine is the symbol and clear example of being oppressed.

People and Nation who are displaced by a racist nation with the support of global arrogant, their houses are destroyed, their lands are usurped and their homes and belongings are openly destroyed by weapon and military tools and instead of it, pro-Zionist builds settlements, kill children (Palestinians) and displace old women and men and their genocide is performed in various forms.

Supporting and defending such oppressed people and crying for struggle against such aggression and tyranny is a religious duty of every Muslim. Even if Palestine was not a Muslim country and still was attacked, it was again the duty of followers of Koran and Islam to support and defend them and condemns such domination, aggression and tyranny.

There is a narration that if a tyranny is performed any where in the world or  in west and at the same time the rights of people are violated, so the Muslims who live in East and could be able to help them must act immediately.

Since supporting Qods and Palestine is regarded as main principle of Imam's ideology and revolution, soon after the victory of Islamic Revolution in Iran, the Embassy of Israel was closed and hand over to Palestinian. Imam, declared the “day of Al Qods” at the last Friday of Ramadan after victory of revolution and defending Al Qods and Palestine becomes the top priority of foreign policy of Islamic Republic of Iran. Imam Khomeini makes a distinction between Zionist and Jewish community and names the government and rulers of Israel as racist and aggressor party against Islam. He says,” we make distinction between Jew community and Zionists. Zionists are not religion and uprising against arrogant Zionist has been the policy of His Eminence prophet Mousses Our approach towards Jew is different compare to Zionists and we are not against them (Jew). We are against Zionists because they are against religions. They are not real Jews, but they are political people and they misuse the name of Jews and the real Jews hate them and all the people of the world should hate them.

Revealing Zionist's plan and their objectives are the major position of the Islamic Revolution and Imam has paid attention to it and all Islamic mass media should consider it as their own duty and highlight it so that to promote awareness of the  people of the world  in order to know the realities about Zionist objectives .

Islamic Revolution based on Imam Khomeini ideology insisted on the aspiration of defending Al Qods and Palestine and his leadership played major role in this victory and led to creation of the epics of Lebanon and Gaza. Although, Iran paid heavy prices for defending Al Qods and Palestine, but we are glad that God gave us this opportunity to perform this divine and humanistic duty and God helped Iran, Palestine and Hezbollah in materializing their cause.

Supreme leader, Hazrat Ayatollah Khamenei, the honest successor of Imam in his statement yesterday, clearly declared in this conference the road map for the liberation of Al Qods and Palestine from the yoke of Zionist regime. The road map which is based on democracy and is the common logic of all people throughout the world. In accordance with this plan, all those who have right in territory of Palestine including Muslims, Jews and Christians will choose their own desired system in a referendum. Rejecting this solution by west and so called advocate of democracy and human rights is the best reason for not abiding to democracy and also indicates that their peace loving and human rights' slogans are mere lie and false.

Another related issue is the legal and judicial measures of Islamic States and supporter of Palestine against Zionist regime.

Islamic States adopted in the past certain measures in the General Assembly of UN concerning genocide in former Yugoslavia and South Africa for imposing racial policies, so now is the time to raise such a request via NAM and Organization of Islamic Conference to exert new economic and diplomatic sanctions against Israel occupying regime as well as adopt effective measures in this regard.

We can also indict Zionist regime via our judicial systems. Considering that based on article 9 of civil law of Iran, the rules of international treaties which Iran joined them too can be regarded also as internal law.

In accordance with articles  146 and 147 of the  Fourth Geneva Convention (1949) which Iran joined it, member states are duty bound to consider the war crimes of the convention as crimes describe in their own internal legislation system, and considering the officially recognition global qualification for prosecution of such criminals in the internal judicial establishments of countries or extradition to the other applicant states, in case of arresting or finding them shall be taken to considerations. Trial of such criminals has been predicted in the qualified judicial system of our country.

On this base, it is appropriate that by adopting measures and based on all-out support of Palestinian and NGO's, prepare the ground and with the help of outstanding internal and international lawyers and attorneys to follow committed crimes of Zionist regime in Gaza and  various petitions to be raised in the internal courts of some countries which accepted world qualification in their courts for the international recognized crimes at their own penal codes and to follow the case via internal legal system, as well as international authorities.

At the end, we commemorate the memory of martyrs of 22 -day war who rendered Gaza to Islamic and Arab world and pray to the God Almighty for their blessing as well as for the further glory and honor of Islam.*

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Ahmad Jebreil *

Esteemed Secretary General of the People's Front for liberation of Palestine

 

In the Name of God, the Almighty

Salamo Aliakom Va Rahmatoollah Va barakato

At first I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Islamic Consultative Assembly for holding this Conference.

Also I would like to thanks our dear brother Dr. Ali Larijani, Esteemed Head of Iranian Parliament and dear brother Hojatol Al`Islam Mohtashamipour for organizing this great Conference.

Yesterday, we heard many speeches among which the speech of His Eminence Ayattollah Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran regarding Palestine, took my attention and attracted me.

We really enjoy to hear speech of His Eminence and consider it as a document that should be published as a guide and reference among all Muslims of the world. What make me sad is that during all these years we never heard the same words from any Arab leaders regarding these values.

They only talked about granting land for achieving peace, for example they said: "about hundred percent of Palestine territory shall be for you and the rest for us, in that case we shall fly the Israeli flag in all the Arabic and Islamic capitals like Riyadh, Baghdad, Damascus and Algeria (Algiers) …. Etc." or they said: "you shall come and visit our country". Unfortunately we hear these kinds of talks even today.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Mr. Chairman,

The first conference in support of Palestine was hold about 18 years ago before Madrid Conference by the Islamic Consultative Assembly headed by Ayatollah Karobi in Isteglal Hotel in Tehran. This conference was held at the time while Bush father administration was ruling over the region. The then US government dispatched all its military forces to the Saudi Arabia peninsula and Persian Gulf. In this field the resistance whose numbers at that time were very little among Islamic Ummah did not joint this "dependency". So these groups were gathered here in Tehran about 18 years back. But the other groups which their numbers were many were waiting for green light to go to Madrid. Even some of the Palestinians wanted to go to Madrid in order to become a part of Jordan plan.

There was darkness and unawareness in all over the region. They told us: "your numbers are limited so what can you do? You are not even aware about strategic policies. The powerful Soviet Union had collapsed. So today the most powerful super power in the world is United States and we should all obey the orders of this country."

Again they told us: "this is Israel which was established here in the Middle East region about 60 years back. The reason for establishing Zionist regime was to implement an imperialist project which concerns the entire region. Then, they started to equip Zionist regime with all kinds of arms. The tragic events of 1948, the three- lateral crimes of 1956, defeat of Arabs in 1967 all caused defeat of military forces of Egypt, Damascus, Iraq and Jordan by Israel within few days. We were close to witness the Zionist attacks against Algeria, Tunisia, Baghdad, and even central Africa such as: Nairobi, Kampala and Uganda. They claim that: "we do not understand all these events". But we are not Red Indian or primitive tribes of Australia. We are Islamic Ummah which has the responsibility of governing this world. The duty of Islamic Ummah regarding humanity is that  they  believe there are no differences between Arabs and non-Arabs. The only differences are based on virtue. So Based on virtue we can not consider any differences between white  and black. The message of the Islamic Ummah is that those who have virtue are close to God Almighty. Islam dose not have any slogan for Arab or non-Arab. This message of Islam has already been transferred to all over the world.

While Islam was expanding all over the world the Islamic leaders emphasized that: "you should not kill any woman, child or old and do not cut a tree." So Islamic Ummah is not weak but some of the ruling regimes in the Islamic countries are scared or are exaggerating.

They said: "US is the most powerful country in the world and is like God on earth and Israel is its preventive power in its hand. Therefore we have no other choice rather to accept. So there were so many who give positive response but there were little who rejected their demand and said "no". As we said the reason for defeat in 1948 and following defeats till today were because the Muslim nations did not participated in these wars, but rather the weak ruling administrations and armies participated in these wars. These armies did not have any particular belief and thus they had compatibility with Zionist enemy. That is why most of these wars were not taken long. We told them that the nation and resistance groups should fight against enemy. Thus these two fronts were segregated.

Israel attacked Lebanon on 1982. The Israel army entered an Arab capital, but Arabs did nothing and only said: "the people of Lebanon should reach to agreement with Zionist." As you know they signed the Agreement of 17 May. The Agreement that was worse than Camp David pact. But in spite of all these events the small resistance group still continued its struggle.

About 18 years back in the first conference in support of Palestine many significant leaders participated in which some of them have been martyred. The martyred Fathi Shaghaghi and martyred seyyed Abbas Mossavi participated in that conference. They were martyred because they were not so many. But the struggle continued. The army which was very strong after 18 years was defeated. In Lebanon many wars took place and Palestinian and Lebanon participated together in all these wars. Those who gathered in Tunisia were only supervising the things. For 18 years Lebanon struggled. We always said if we achieve victory in Lebanon and defeat Zionist enemy, then Islamic Ummah shall have bright feature. Since 1982 for almost 18 years in which Palestinians were martyred inside the refugee camps, they told us:" why you play with the life of Palestinian people and killed them in Jabal Amel in southern part of Lebanon." We laughed at what they said and always believe that with the help of the God Almighty and resistance very soon we shall defeat them. Not paying attention to the Agreement of 17 may of 1983, was one of the great victory which lead to the defeat of Israel in Lebanon. I should frankly say that this above-mentioned victory was just an introduction. The people of Palestine have heavy duty. This duty was resistance. Victory in Lebanon brought very deep effects on the people of Palestine, which resulted to first Intifada. Palestinian people continued to struggle. In fact resistance led to this victory. As a result of the people's resistance and resistance of Muslim nation in Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia etc, we achieved victory.

Now you looked at the US situation on earth. US who wanted to dominate over the world. What has happened to its power? The Zionist regime fights against us for 60 years. But today the resistance had brought the war to Tel Aviv, Haifa. Resistance shaken the pillars of Zionist society as some of the Zionist researchers declared that Zionist plan has began to decline.

During recent tragic event in Gaza, who could believe that they could resist as such? But this happened in Gaza.. The people of this region were well aware about their historical responsibility. They knew that they are not only defending Palestine issue but rather the issue of Arabs and all the Muslims.

This victory was achieved as a result of struggles of those who relay on God Almighty and bravely fight against Israeli army. Frankly speaking, I should say that this victory is as a result of Syria’s resistance after signing of Camp David Pact and victory of the Islamic revolution of Iran; the revolution that created the spirit of Jihad and resistance in our blood and thus the true Islam of Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) entered correct way. As Islam say that religion is not only worship but Islam is religion of the way of life and jihad.

Dear Brothers,

I know that all of you have given presentations in support of Gaza. But I would like to refer to one point: have you ever seen in the past, that Islamic and Arabic world and all other freedom-loving people of the world to support Palestine issue as they do now? So what is the meaning of these demonstrations? The concept of these demonstrations was struggle against those who wanted to destroy a culture that some people tried to revive it. A big group in Palestine guided this culture. This group believed that Palestine shall decide independently. But this is not true. How we can say that Palestine is independent? For confronting them Particularly Zionist regime we need help of all Arab and Islamic Ummah and also freedom-loving people of the world. Today the Zionist regime has been destroyed, because we witnessed so many people's demonstrations in various Africa and Asia continents. They call for jihad. Thus all these uprisings had lead to their defeat. The Israel was defeated in Gaza in spite of cooperation and participation of certain Arabs and international groups. So now they are trying to harm us at international field. They talk about national unity. In year 2005 we listened to them and talked about our positions with Egypt leaders. These leaders agreed with certain positions which were accepted by them, but did not pay attention to the most important issue which was reconstruction of P.L.O. For 5 years they ignore us and now they want us to joint them in Egypt for national unity. Who is against unity? How you want to be integrated while there are two different programs in Palestine?

One program declare that Israel is a reality and should be recognized and the Zionist should be settled in Wes Bank but at the same time it wants us not to talk about Al-Qods or right to return for refugees.

If you are agree with this program the P.L.O shall be re-establish. But we are not agreeing with this program. Do they agree with reconstruction of P.L.O? If they agree then we shall be ready to negotiate only.

We avail ourselves of this opportunity and suggest that main issue is the leadership of Palestine. So question is how to elect a leader for nation? Holding of free election and democracy is based on western method. They should come and see how this people elect their leader. Of course these elections shall be hold in all over west Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and other parts and all the Palestinians shall have the right to vote. But do they accept with election? Definitely they shall never agree with these elections. Because they know they can not have many votes. They talk about legacy of revolutionary groups. No problem, but do they accept to create a balance inside P.L.O. They have seized P.L.O Mahmmoud Abbas Took over P.L.O. Abbas, America and Arab regimes know that if they reconstruct P.L.O on the basis of revolutionary criteria then who shall support them. But we Palestinians say that we and members of Fateh do not considered this movement as the movement of Mahmmoud Abbas, but rather we consider it as movement of Fateh who belong to noble people. We want P.L.O based on revolutionary criteria.

What is their political program? They want us to accept conditions set forth by the international four lateral committee, to recognize Israel, to stop resistance, and to leave our arm. They want us to recognize all the agreements signed with Zionist enemy since 1993 till now. They gave lots of privileges to enemy but what have they achieved till now? Could they taken back a piece of land? Could they destroy one of the Jewish settlements? Could they free a revolutionary fighter? What Mahmmoud Abbas has done till now? Therefore dear sisters and brothers I request you when you are taking about national unity, first of all you should know what kinds of issue exist among us?

Frankly speaking whatever you witness in Egypt such as false conciliation etc, are nothing rather than ceasefire. The war is continuing. On this basis I request my Arab and Islamic brothers to help Palestine people. There are lots to say but I shall not take your time any more.

Thank you.*

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Ahmad Ebrahim Zaher*

Head of National Parliament of Sudan

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

With greetings to Honorable brother Dr. Ali Larijani, Head of Conference and his invitation for participating in the 4th international Conference in "support of Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of Crime."

With greetings to the Islamic Republic of Iran for paying due attentions to the issue of Palestine and their problems.

With greetings to all the participants who have come from all over the world to give their spiritual support to Palestine and with greetings to our sisters and brothers in Gaza and Palestine who teach us every day new lessons of stability, victim and resistance and are not afraid of any destruction, displacement or being refugees and are not familiar with the concepts such as sadness, defeat, etc.

The methods of arrogant powers have not changed in the course of history and in order to protect their own interests they never would stop their aggression policies, massacre of children, women and aged people, or creating disunion among different nations.

“Surely Firon exalted himself in land and made its people into parties, weakening one party from among them; he slaughtered their sons and let their women live; surely he was one of the mischief makers”(28:4)

The contemporary colonial states while killing people and creating holocaust and shed blood of innocent peoples in all over the world, in fact are following the way of Farraon. Vis-à-vis all these brutal acts the God Almighty ask his pious creatures to have tolerance, to respect values and to seek justice, solidarity and unity. The God created the earth for noble and pious creatures:

"And we desired to bestow a favor upon those who deemed weak in the land, and to make them the Imams, and to make them the heirs, and to grant them power in the land, and to make fir on and to make fir on and Human and  their hosts see from them what they feared." (28:5-6)

As long as these resistance methods remain in our minds and with regards to changes and developments we remain in the same line, then the divine victory is definite. The wise speech of His Eminence, supreme leader of Iran which was presented yesterday, clarified this fact.

But we should pay attention to this fact that Palestine issue is not the issue of Iran only. However Iran has made tremendous efforts for Palestine issue such as holding. This significant Conference. Even the issue of Palestine is not only the issue of Palestinians. However they are the only one who suffers and give their life, families, wealth etc. the issue of Palestine is not the issue of Arabs also, even though the Arabs are in the center of this issue. So the issue of Palestine is the issue of Islamic Ummah.

So our duty is to attract Islamic Ummah to the Palestine issue. All of us including Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and Africa including Somalia, Senegal and Nigeria ……… etc should all make efforts for Palestine. The issue which was almost forgotten.

In this Conference we should recall the resources of this Ummah. If these resources to be exploited positively then the map of the world will change. So for collecting our potentialities and using our resources, firstly we should determine certain priorities. One of these priorities is to determine that who is the enemy?

To answer this question is key important for our Ummah. Because then we knew who is our real enemy.

There is no enmity between Iran and Arabs as it has been said by enemy.

Also there is no enmity between turkey and Arab world as the Western powers said.

The Islamic Ummah is united Ummah with common goals and objectives. So it is not merited to have attitudes such as hatefulness, vengeance and revengefulness among Islamic Ummah.

We should take advantages from the potentialities and abilities of this Ummah so that our Palestinian brothers become happy and they feel not alone. The spirit of solidarity and unity among Islamic Ummah should be strengthening day by day. So adopting integrated positions and coordinated stands in solving daily issues are important factors in strengthening unity and solidarity of this Ummah.

Today one of the main important factor for helping Gaza and its reconstruction is to help and support resistance and granting spiritual and material aid to the resistance, and also to introduce resistance as the main option for solving Palestine issue.

Today the most important method for supporting resistance and Palestine issue is the efforts for creating unity and solidarity among Palestinian groups. We should be aware that any kinds of disunion among Palestinian groups shall create obstacles for the victory of resistance, and thus the Zionists shall gain interests in this regard.

We agree with the condemnation and punishment of the criminals in all over the world, but the truth is any request for the punishment of Israeli war criminals in the international courts shall not be accepted and will have no result.

The trial which has been formed on the basis of political objective shall never be considered as a safe place for condemnation of criminals. The International criminal court has not been established to condemn the criminal leaders of US, Israel, European countries …. etc. But rather it has been created to condemn the African leaders and heads of third world Countries in order to further strengthen their position. Therefore we should not waste our time for introducing the three Zionist criminals that means Olmert, Barak and Livni to the court for trail, because it is useless and waste of time. Undoubtedly US shall veto any verdict which shall be issue by court.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

You are all aware about recent verdict issued by international Criminal Court against president of Sudan. The verdict accused the president for committing crimes in Darfur and you are well aware that the decisions of this court have not any relation with justice.

The resolution No 1592 of the Security Council for transferring Dafrur issue to the international Criminal Court is the same resolution which refer to immunity right of every Americans who committed crimes in Darfor. So this international Criminal Court by issuing this discriminatory verdict has changed to a place under influence of colonial powers.

Issuance of this verdict will not have many effects on Sudan. We have prepared ourselves for the verdict worse than this one.

We do not listen to imperialist and its lies and had always supported Palestine issue since 1948, and we are waiting for final divine victory over Zionist enemy.

While we express our gratitude to His Excellency Mr. Mahmmoud Ahmadinejad for his support from Sudan, we requested the participants of this Conference to use these kinds of hostile efforts against Islamic Ummah, as a tool for further adopting united stands in confronting against arrogant enemy.

I assure you that people of Sudan will not leave their president and this verdict shall further lead to the unity of the people of Sudan. In the next week's meeting of our parliament, by the grace of God, we shall adopt a law concerning prohibition of introducing Sudanese citizens to the international criminal court. Also in our national parliament we adopted a resolution in which we requested all the parliaments of the world to withdraw from membership in international criminal court. This court has been established by European with colonial objectives which never implement and seek justice.

At the end I wish success for this Conference and I wish further unity of the Islamic Ummah.*

Va Salamo Alaikom Va Rahmatollah Va Barakato.

Speech presented by His Excellency Sebghatollah Mojad'adi *

Head of Senate Parliament of Afghanistan

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

At first I deem it necessary to express my gratitude to His Excellency Dr. Ali Larigani, Esteemed Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly for holding this Conference. Of course this gathering including esteemed scholars, clerics and Palestinian brave soldiers, is considered very important at this time.

Distinguished participants,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I deem it necessary that on behalf of my accompanying delegation to thanks you all for giving us this opportunity to participate in this Conference in order to help and support oppressed people of Palestine.

We are all well aware about the cruelties and oppressions implemented against oppressed people of Palestine during last 60 years.

We can never forget the aggressions of usurper regime of Israel against oppressed people of Palestine. Their crimes are not related to yesterday or today, but it is almost thousands of years that this sect is acting the same. Even the God Almighty in holy Qoran refers to the oppression done by this sect. According to certain narratives more than 300 messengers of God had been killed by this sect. There is another narrative which quoted that more than 30 prophets had been martyred by them.

These narratives and quotations are not mentioning their cruelties and oppressions and aggressions for the first time, and in fact all other religious sects are aware about their cruelties.

The God Almighty say in holy Qoran that: the Zionists committed many brutal crimes. During their 60 years aggression against Palestinians they committed brutal massacre and genocide many women, children and aged people. They have determined objective in their minds. The reason for killing women and children and aged people is nothing rather than massacre, genocide and killing the generations in Palestine. To take revenge can not be avoided and the God Almighty in this regard says:

 “And do not think Allah to be heedless of what the unjust do; He only respites them to a day on which the eyes shall be fixedly open” (14:42)

So from here in this holy Conference and all other international forums we cry for taking revenge from criminal Israel and other supper powers supporting Israel. So I ask international forums that how long these crimes and cruelties shall be continued? We are all responsible vis-à-vis our God Almighty to resist and support resistance because at the resurrection Day we should answer for our acts. Resurrection Day is undeniable truth. The God Almighty shall ask us at that day about our acts, so we are responsible and shall act according our duties.

Even the famous poet saddi refer to this point of a Resurrection Day, and the God Almighty Says in holy Qoran: 

“And you shall see every nation kneeling down; every nation shall be called to its book : today you shall be rewarded for what you did” (45:28)

So this is duty of all Muslims to end the crimes and cruelties of Zionists. This is promise of the God Almighty.

So the day for taking revenge shall come soon. In famous narratives have been mentioned that when Imam Mehdi shall appear and advent on earth, some of the cruel soldiers of Jesus Christ who are Jews and the monstrous donkey on which the imposter rides shall surround the Imam Mehdi and at that time he take secure from the God Almighty. The God almighty send the Jesus Christ from heaven to earth so that to help Imam Mehdi It is said that Jesus Christ shall be descended to earth on Damassca and from there he will come to accompany Imam Mehdi.

Then Imam Mehdi shall be realized and he kills the monstrous donkey on which the imposter rides and thus in one day more than 70 thousand Jews shall be killed. On this day the Jews shall be hidden behind the trees then there will be voices from the rocks and trees that these Jews have been hidden among us so find them and kill them. The only tree which does not cry and keep quite shall be Farghad tree which support Jews. Today we hear that Israel cultivate millions of this tree. Perhaps this myth has been told in their holy books. Of course we believe that these stories are truth and not myth. These stories and talks are the documents of Jews. Thus we would like to ask international community to take revenge from Jews and to help oppressed people of Palestine.

Of course all the Muslims have believed to all the prophets and their holy books. We should ask the Zionist who false fully called themselves Jews that all these crimes committed by them are written in which section and chapter of old testament? This indicates that malevolent Jews do not believe to Old Testament. We have all heard the following verse from holy Qoran that:

“Say: O followers of the Book! Come to an equitable proposition between us and you that we shall not serve any but Allah and (that) we shall not associate aught with Him, and (that) some of us shall not take others for lords besides Allah; but if they turn back’ then say: Bear witness that we are Muslims”(3:64)

What other document can be as strong as this one. This is a document which is accepted by all those who believe holy book. Thus we requested to start negotiations on the basis of logical reasons. If the true religion of Islam is just and right, then they should have faith and worship the God Almighty. They should stop these aggressions which bring nothing except injustice and genocide of innocent peoples. Of course whoever kills a Muslim should face punishment and go to hell.

As the God Almighty says:

“And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his punishment is hell: he shall abide in it, and Allah wills end His wrath on him and curse him and prepare for him a painful chastisement”(4:93)

They have destroyed the world for so called western democracy. It is really sad that today the west talk about democracy. The western democracy is nothing except commitment of all these crimes and violence which we witness all over the world. They call these aggressions as democracy. Does the International community wants to keep quite vis-à-vis all these injustice of usurper regime of Israel and to support injustice?

Dear Brothers, Sisters and Audience,

We support sincerely all the oppressed peoples and fighters of Palestine and Lebanon and condemned those who violated the legitimate rights of the oppressed people, particularly the people of the Islamic countries. So we requested our Muslim brothers and sisters in Palestine and Lebanon that never stop their legitimate resistance and in this regard the God Almighty says:

“O You who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion, then Allah will bring a people, he shall love them and they shall love Him, lowly before the believers, mighty against the unbelievers, they shall strive hard in Allah’s way and shall not fear the censure of any censurer; this is Allah’s Face, He gives it to whom He pleases, and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing”(5:54)

So our dear Palestinian brothers and sisters you are fighting for more than 60 years against oppression so please be brave and continue your resistance because the God Almighty is with you all.

Undoubtedly the promises shall be materialized and we shall support you all. Our heart and spirit shall be with you all the time I do hope we would have got the chance to fight next to you against cruelty and Zionism.

Inshallah the God almighty shall protect you all and grant you loftiness.

I deem it necessary to refer to certain issues regarding Afghanistan. I reject this great lie that we accepted the presence of foreign forces in Afghanistan. The Afghan experienced struggles against foreign aggressions since long time back during their struggles against British and Russia. So this is not true that we have joined the foreign forces. The foreigners have come to Afghanistan with the positive response of UN for helping and supporting Afghans in their struggles against foreign forces. This was the will and intention of Afghan people to be free from Taleban, otherwise Afghanistan during the process of history has never united with foreigners. We want to organized our military and disciplinary forces as soon as possible so that Afghanistan to be rule by our children and future generation. This issue is undeniable and is the secret for releasing Afghanistan from foreigners. *

 

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Salim Al-Hoss*

Former prime minister of Lebanon

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

The atrocities and crimes of Zionist military forces in Gaza strip was design as such, as if nothing had happened. But this is not true, Gaza was never considered a problem but rather it is real picture of all Palestine problems. It is the issue that concerns all Arabs, Muslims and the world. The Gaza war was started so that the world comes to know that Palestine issue is still alive.

The holy land of Palestine was divided in 1947 on the basis of UN oppressed resolution. Arabs were defeated from Zionist aggressors on 1948. Today after 60 years of this tragic event, Palestine remains as the most important issue of the world of Islam.

Arabs were defeated in many wars and among all these war, the war of 1967 had many consequences. In spite of this fact the Palestine issue remains as an immoral issue among Muslims.

However the titles of the issue of Palestine change under different pretexts, but it remains always as a basic issue. It is an issue of a nation. Nation means people of Palestine with all its Muslims and Christian people.

The Arabs who are deprived from their human and legitimate rights in their own country and those who live inside racial territory called Israel, are the main parts of this issue.

Also the issue of refugees and displaced and homeless people who do not enjoy a life with dignity and at present are living in camps and settlements in neighboring countries such as Lebanon, Syria and Jordan, are the main important issue of Palestine.

Jollan Heights in Syria, flight of Zionist aircrafts from air space of certain Arab countries, naval pirate, Gaza siege etc, are all considered in the framework of Palestine issue.

The attacks of occupying regime of Al-Qods against Lebanon in 1978, 1982 and 2006 and land, naval and air attacks of this regime against Lebanon objectives during many years are the consequences of Palestine issue.

The terrible crimes committed by the Zionist racial regime in Diryasin, Kafar Ghasem, Ghana and Gaza are again the consequences of Palestine issue and its cause.

In this regard we can refer to under-development of Arab countries in the world and their efforts for giving their financial resources for arm competition, which are again as a result of Palestine issue. Today Arabs are facing with the Zionist regime which is the most powerful power in the Middle East. A regime which is supported by the most powerful power in the world, and receive all kinds of technical and destructive weapons. On this basis we can say that in this arm race Arabs are losing their interests while participating in this competition and will remain under developed.

American claims that it wants freedom, democracy, human rights and other human values in the western world.

We respect all these values but the question is to what extent the US government believes to these values.

Inside America there is democracy but at the international arena there are despotism and tyranny against freedom of people and their legitimate rights. How come US can claim to respect humanitarian values while has started war against Korea, Vietnam, and Afghanistan and recently against Iraq? What kinds of relation exist between humanitarian values and dispatching military forces to different parts of the world such as Lebanon? US claims that it respect human values while support brutal attacks of Zionist regime against Palestine. Can we smell human rights, democracy and freedom in all these crimes?

Once again I would like to say that Palestine and Gaza at top of it, is firstly an issue of a nation.

Today every one is trying to solve the issue of Palestine by presenting different plans; the plans which according to them Palestine will be divided to two parts of Arabs and Jews, under the names of Palestine and Israel.

The last plan was Arab peace plan raised during Arab summit conference in Lebanon and then Riyadh.

These plans are accepted by heads of Arab states, but the problem is that we believe these plans are based on compromise and are not final. That means if the Zionist enemy agree with this plan then defiantly it will disagree on two points: firstly the Zionist regime wants to expand its territory and secondly it wants to eliminate the rights of Palestinian to return to their homeland.

So the result will be nothing rather than compromise with Zionists. So today the policy of compromise is the only solution which can not be accepted by Palestinians or Arabs. Of course a plan of compromise is not wise. So we emphasize on this point that Palestine is an issue of a nation rather than a country. That means the issue of Palestine can be solve only through realization of the rights of all Palestinian refugees and their right to return to their homeland, who are real owner of Palestine territory. Palestine should be integrated so that Arab and Jews live over there together peacefully. This is the tradition of life in the contemporary period. The millions of Arabs who live in western societies enjoy civil rights; similarly the Jews also can live next to Arabs in Palestine and enjoy civil rights. If the rights to return for Palestinians to their homeland are respected then delineation and delimitation of border lines between the two countries (Jews and Palestinians) shall not be important for us as in the past they impose the division of Palestine over us.

It should be pointed out the right to return to their own territories and homeland was not mentioned in the Arab Peace Plan when it was presented first time during Beirut meeting. This paragraph (right to return) finally was added in the draft with persistence of then president of Lebanon. So we believe that these kinds of plans should never be implemented.

Before Gaza crisis, we always asked this question what had happened for Arabs world. In the past the Arab world had always supported any Arabic events or changes. Every body knows how the Arab world was dynamic during period of Jamal Abdul Nasser. Perhaps we can say the unique phenomena of Jamal Abdul Naser are considered as main title of Palestine issue.

For many years we thought that the Arab world had passed all the difficulties and became a nation without problem but suddenly the issue of Gaza took place. All the integrated Arab nations in east and west of the world upraised and obliged all the ruling Arabs either those who had doubt or those who had negative positions, to express their sympathy with the people of Gaza and to condemn Zionist enemy. Thus it was proving to every one that Arab world not only has not been surrounded but rather it can impose its will and intention over their leaders. The epic of Gaza once again revived and raised our self confidence and hope. It gives as hope that we can make the future with our hands. Gaza further strengthen our believes regarding importance of the issue of Palestine. The most important lesson we took from this epic of Gaza is resistance, as the only way for facing the crimes of Zionist.

Naturally, Israel army will be succeeded in all land and air attacks since it receive military aid from super powers. So the Israeli army can be defeated only through sacrifice, resistance and guerrilla warfare.*

 

 

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Ayatollah Dori Najaf Abadi

Public Prosecutor General of the Islamic Republic of Iran

 

In the Name of God, the compassionate, the merciful

“You are certainly greater in being feared in their hearts than Allah; that is because they are a people who do not understand they will not fight against you in a body save in fortified towns or from behind walls; their fighting between them is severe, you may think them as on body, and their hearts are disunited; that is because they are a people who have no sense”(59:13-14)

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Excellencies and Distinguished Participants,

Honorable Jurists and Legal Experts,

Asalsam Alaikom va Rahmatollah Va Barakatoh

First of all, on the behalf of government and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran and especially Honorable Chief of judiciary, His Eminence Ayatollah Hashemi Shahroudi and legal association, I would like to thank and appreciate the esteemed guests for participating in this conference.

The people of Iran are honored that once again are the host of intellectuals who are committed to humanistic dignity from throughout the world. The figures that have not tolerated tyranny, violation, crime, genocide and occupation and along with oppressed and deprived people defend humanity and dignity.

Without any doubt, human society from historical point of view had always require welfare, security based on Justice and virtue and we have gathered in this Conference to study the hindrances of creating this historical needs and to find ways to go out of the condition that have been emerged for humanity due to expansionist, egoism, non commitment to humanistic norms and had led to victimizing justice, honor, dignity and human virtue only for the interests of a monopolist minorities.

Nowadays, the old sixty years wound which inflicted on the body of oppressed people of Palestine, especially in the Gaza 22- day war, injures the heart of freedom loving people as well as conscious of Justice seekers. The Hearts of people of the world ach for observing the scene of martyrdom of innocent children and defenseless women, men …. Etc. These victims have illustrated the ugly face of the accomplices and supporters of these crimes and revealed to the world the vicious nature and sleepy conscious of these elements. The history will never forget that during this devastating aggression, thousands of innocent people were killed and from December 18, 2008 till January 2009 in the process of extensive military (air, ground and sea) attacks against Gaza strip another disgraceful act was added to their previous ones.

Considering that the existence of Palestine government especially in the Gaza strip has been threatened due to long-term siege, extensive attacks, organized crimes as well as lack of the least guarantee for non-repetition of them in the future, thus all citizens, N.G.Os, political parties, resistance movements and the people elected government have officially confirmed this fact. In order to defend the dignity of Palestine people who are the members of human family and also based on human rights declaration, enjoying equal rights for all Palestinians is in fact basis of freedom, Justice and peace in the world.

Considering that the principle of not resorting to force is regarded as prevailed principle of international law as well as public and global rules that the charter of united nation has confirmed it,

Considering that non-aggression is one of the main recognized principles of law,

With due regard to necessity of halting aggression and violating actions or conditions which lead to violation of peace ,and commitment of states to resolve them based on justice principle and international law which have been reiterated in the charter of U.N, and in order To fulfill the recognized humanistic value which stressed by the divinely religious including administer of penal Justice and struggle against tyranny, aggression,  crimes and punishment of criminals and support their humanistic rights via implementation of law and to prevent repetition of such crimes based on responsibilities of all human being for the fulfillment of these aspiration as well as U.N member states commitment to global respect and real observation of human rights and basic freedoms,

Considering that administration of Justice and paying compensation for the unjustified losses and damages, is a part of General principle of common laws of all global legal systems and Internationally accepted by virtue of articles 146 and 148 of the fourth Geneva convention (1949) which reiterates on  commitment of contracting parties to implement all legal measures in order to determine appropriate penal punishment for those who committed or ordered the violation mentioned in article 147 and obliged them for the investigation and surrendering them to courts as well as stipulate that none of the contracting parties shall not exempt herself of other contracting party,

By virtue of statue of international penal tribunal which stipulates the most terrible crimes that cause anxiety of the international society should not be left without punishment and by adopting the required measures at the international and national level, guarantee the effective prosecution of perpetuators, and for ending the immunity of perpetrators and not letting them to escape and consequently to prevent the repetition of such crimes, it is duty of all governments to exert their own penal jurisdiction on perpetrators and those who are responsible for the crimes,

By declaring the judicial process of various states in recent years, especially the European countries and viewpoint of the International law commission of U.N for the preliminary draft of crimes against peace and security of humanity, it is necessary to exert global Jurisdiction on international crimes and genocide,

Declaring the necessity of pursuing the files of all associates, partners, accomplices of crimes that the international supporters of Zionist regime are part of that, as the only way to prevent the repetition of crimes and violations until the punishment of all criminals,

State  public prosecutor while indict those who, on the basis of these  reports and existing evidences, have committed international disastrous crimes in the Palestine territories especially at the 22- day Gaza war, and urges for the just hearing and punishment of criminals and to revive and grant the legitimate rights of victims to them.

I would like to request you distinguished jurists and legal experts who came here  for the exchange of view and finding solution for the greatest problem inflicted on Islamic Ummah by the plots of imperialist and also for supporting defenseless and oppressed people whose legitimate rights have been trampled under the boots of criminals, to open tiding horizon for the prosecution of all associates, partners and executors of these crimes, especially the crimes such as genocide, crime against humanity, aggression and occupation, flagrant and organized violation of human rights, threat against peace and global and regional security as well as violation of international rules and resolution and none abiding to treaties and pacts. I hope we all will witness very soon a world free of any tyranny and crime and none repetition of such crimes in the future.

At the end, I refer to the following cases in order to be followed at the international level:

It is expected that long and firm strategy to be put at the agenda of committed people for the solution of Palestinian problem and the issue constantly to be pursued.

Without any doubt, the siege of Gaza must be ended and for the opening of crossing routes the legitimate rights of Palestinian people should be observed as well as medicines and the required equipments to be supplied appropriately.

Appropriate measures should be adopted for the reconstruction of Gaza and compensation should be granted for the losses and damages of people in Gaza.

People of world expected that a part from associates, perpetrators and those who ordered this human catastrophe, the states and governments who supported this inhuman ways or cooperated in the siege of Gaza or created certain restrictions, shall also be punished.

Since passiveness vis-à-vis what happened in Gaza is not acceptable by aware and awake consciousness at worldwide, accountability of Islamic and Arab States especially neighbors of Palestine in the history will be a decisive issue, therefore, it is expected the esteemed representatives of all nations to convey the protest of free-minded people and Islamic nations to the heads of their states.

Occurrence of such unfavorable events at the regional level and Islamic world, indicates that the world of Islam does not utilize opportunities and neglects creating unity and cooperation based on common objective and holding such conferences will led to further unity and coherence among Islamic Ummah.

During this period, passiveness of international forums and silence of organizations which have been established to support world peace and security has created doubt for every one in the world.

The government of Islamic Republic of Iran urges International penal tribunal and all independent and all other free tribunals that by considering the existence of people and government of Palestine and violation of their legitimate rights, immediately to review and consider the committed crimes in Gaza and issue decisive verdict in this regard. *

Vasalam Alikom va Rahmatollah

 

 

 

 

 

Speech presented by  His excellency Dr. Salim Al Za'anoun *

Head of National Parliament of Palestine

 

In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful

“Glory be to Him who made His servant to go on a night from the Sacred Mosque to the remote mosque of which We have blessed the precincts”(17:1)

At first I would like to express my gratitude to the esteemed president, government and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and also to the Islamic consultative Assembly and His Excellency Dr. larijani for holding this Conference at this time. 

Today we came here in order to praise the resistance of Gaza. The resistance vis-à-vis air, marine and land attacks of Israel. But our people resist in Gaza in order to prove that even if the armies are strong but still can not break the will of the people.

This sentence had been said by the supreme leader of Iran during his opening speech and the president of Iran has always emphasized on it. The president that always says "no" to the expansionist demands of the United State of America.

Here I would like to send my greetings to all my brothers who have come from Gaza.

Our dear brothers and friends who passed difficult period with resistance and sacrifice. Now at this time the solidarity of the people of Palestine have been proved, because our people hand in hand have given the lesson of resistance to the world and did not act according Israel's wish.

But Israel did not take lesson from its oppression and attacks to Gaza, as it did not took lesson from its attacks to Lebanon. Today we witness that Israel use new methods such as attacking residential houses in Albastan area under pretext of opening a way toward Wailing Wall (Divar eh Nodbeh). Thus it wants to isolate Al Qods. Israel still continue the excavation and digging under Al-Aqsa Mosque which is first Quibble of all Muslims and the third holiest shrine. All these digging shall destroy the Mosque and may lead to its collapse. But the God will protect his house, as they tried to burn the mosque but the God did not permit. The digging also by the grace of the God Almighty can not destroy the mosque.

All these aggressions of Israeli forces are condemned by international community and public and private institutes because they are contrary to article 49 of the 4th Geneva agreement of 1949.

All these criminal acts are supported by Israeli parties. The parties that during election chose the most extremist one to be elected in order to further intensify Israeli aggression against oppressed people of Palestine. Of Course the response of Gaza vis-à-vis all the brutal acts of Zionist regime was very strong. People of Gaza and all the resistance groups by tolerance and sacrifice indicate that they will continue their resistance. We had seen in Balein they resist against construction of wall and even they are trying for judaization of Al Qods . In Al Khalil the people resist against construction of Jewish settlements supported by Israeli army.

The people of Palestine shall continue their resistance until achievement of their national goals and objectives. The objectives such as: return of refugees to their territories and homeland, abolishment of Jewish settlements, destroying the wall of separation and establishment of independent state of Palestine with Al-Qods as its capital. So our promise shall be materialized soon in Al-Qods and in Al-Aqsa mosque and in Abraham Shrine where we can find solutions for all the problems. The atmosphere that we see today makes us hopeful for future. This atmosphere has been created as a result of Palestine – to – Palestine talks. All these talks should be supported by our brothers and friends, because victory can be achieved only through unity and solidarity. so on behalf of the National Parliament of Palestine which act as an umbrella to support Palestinians inside or outside Palestine I would like to tell my people and my brothers who do all the talks and negotiations, to fulfill the  wishes of our people. This Ummah expect you to consider Palestine superior to all of your other demands. 

So I invite the world of Arab and Islam to support these talks and negotiations so that the state of national unity to be establish, and role of P.L.O as the only representative of Palestine to be further expand and under its flag all the Palestinian groups to be united based on Egypt and Yemen agreements.

Dear Sisters and Brothers

In this Conference, there are elites and scholars who are worried about Palestine crisis. They have come to this Conference in Iran which always protected oppressed people of the world, in order to support the powerful people of Palestine and Al-Qods. Here I would like to recall the holy decision of His Eminence late Imam Khomeini when he declared every last Friday of Ramadan as the Day of Al-Qods .

The people of Palestine expect that this conference to be starting point in support of Palestine cause so that it bring a normal life for Palestinian. We do hope that all women, children and old people in Palestine enjoy the blessing of the God Almighty and live on earth with tranquility and peace.

I thank all the participants and the Islamic Republic of Iran for supporting the brave people of Palestine. *

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Dr. Maher Taher*

Responsible Member of People's Front for Liberation of Palestine outside Occupied Territories

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Dear Brother Mr. Chairman,

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

 

At first on behalf of People's Front Liberation of Palestine and its Secretary General Mr. Ahmad Sa'adat, who is under arrest in Zionist prison at present, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the people and government of the friendly and brother country of the Islamic Republic of Iran and its Islamic revolution which from very beginning have always supported people of Palestine and strongly resisted against Zionist enemy.

Also I would like to thanks all of you freedom and justice-seeking people on behalf of brave and indefatigable people of Palestine, who are writing the pages of history with their blood and on behalf of resisting children in Gaza strip, West Bank, Hifa, Al-Qods and other parts of Palestine. I avail myself of this opportunity and emphasize that the brave people of Palestine will never give up to unreasonable and illogical demands of Zionists and will continue their struggles till the end. Thus I would like to present you distinguished participants and organizers of this Conference, certain recommendations in this regard:

In spite of brutal attacks of Zionist enemy against Gaza Strip and using all kinds of illegal and prohibited weapons for the destruction and bloody massacre and killings of the innocent people, but still could not force people of Palestine to give up. These myths of resistance under such circumstances did not give up. These victories along with myth resistance of Lebanon under leadership of Hezbollah give us this hope that from one hand the great victories and on the other hand the destruction of occupying regime, shall be materialized. So with these two great victories the day of promise shall be close. Thus whoever say that it is not possible to destroy Israel is not true and all these ideas are nothing rather than ideas given and supported by United States of America. We tell them look at resistance of brave people of Palestine which give us strength for bigger struggle against Zionist Regime. Therefore we announce that the strategy of the resistance of the people of Palestine and Lebanon which is supported by Syria and Islamic Republic of Iran along with the brave victory of the people of Iraq which defeated all the Zionist and US plans in the region, shall further strengthen the hope of Palestine and Palestinians for the achievement of greater victory in near future.

All the treacherous conspiracies of enemy for preventing to send any arms and weapons to the oppressed people of Palestine, in spite of Zionist attacks against Gaza strip, are done in order to control marine boarders. The presence of French motor boats in this region, are in fact for helping enemy. Presence of NATO representatives are for surveillance, monitoring and control. All the international elements have joined together to control and monitor marine, naval and air ways. Thus the Palestinians can not receive any weapon. They are well aware that if Palestinians receive any arm and weapon then will be much stronger to defeat Zionist enemy. We recall 1948 when people of Palestine were prevented to receive weapons. Even in 1967 they again implemented this policy in Gaza Strip and West Bank. As a result of this siege and blockade the Gaza Strip and West Bank went under occupation of Zionist Regime. Today we say whatever the people of Palestine have, either the potentialities or capabilities, it is their right and we cry loudly and tell to all freedom and justice seeking people of the world to support people of Palestine and help them to receive arms so that they will be able to strengthen their military capabilities. Thus I would like to ask the organizers of this Conference to mention in final Declaration the legitimate and legal right of the people of Palestine in receiving arms and weapons so that the people of Palestine are able to fulfill their duties for liberating their territories and enjoy the right of self-determination.

Some of the international and western powers are making conspiracies. The conspiracies that want to change Israel from an enemy to a friend. Thus to control the public minds and to replace Islamic Republic of Iran as enemy instead of Israel. They are trying to create ethnic and religious conspiracies among Muslims and Arabs. Here we would like to declare that people of Palestine know and recognize their enemy. The people of Palestine consider Islamic Republic of Iran as its close friend and brother and will never stop its resistance and arm struggle against Zionist enemy.

Here I deem it necessary to emphasize on unity and solidarity of the people of Palestine in achieving their great objectives. We should not forget that for achieving these goals and objective we should have reconciliation and have unity and solidarity, because these objectives can not be materialize under disunion. So we should once again reorganize Palestine Liberation Organization and to give back its important role and to pave the ground for participation of all national and Islamic fighting groups so that to destroy all the conspiracies of America and its allies such as Israel.

Returning back of Netanyahu to power and return of extremist attitudes of Israel are obvious warning for Palestinian fighters. Recently Netanyahu declared that he wants Palestine without stability and independence. He wants to control all the passages of Palestine. He wants Palestine to be disarmed.  In fact the Israeli extremists want Palestine to serve them. But we tell them that we reject firmly all your demands and intensions and declare that we continue our resistance and will force all the Israeli soldiers to leave our country.

Also we emphasize that we need your help and support to continue our way. We can not sacrifice all our potentialities.

We should support Palestine Liberation Organization; because this organization is consider real representative of the people of Palestine inside and outside Palestine. We clearly declared that national unity can not be materializing on the basis of Oslo pact or route map or political efforts and conspiracies of US. It is normal that we would like to take revenge from racism regime since it dose not believe to the principle of peace and conciliation, but only believe to domination over region. Thus we cry loudly that we want neither conciliation nor coexistence with our enemy who implement terrorist acts against people of Palestine.

At the end I would like to present two recommendations. The first recommendation is to dispatch a delegation to Gaza including representatives from participants of this conference, so that to talk with the people of Gaza and at the same time to observe the extent of crimes committed by Israel.

My second suggestion is that this Conference shall adopt a declaration for condemning International Court of Justice for the verdict issue against Mr. Omar Al Bashir, president of Sudan. Thus by doing so they have denied firstly this unjust verdict and secondly we announce to all the people of the world that the main duty of this Court is to investigate about crimes committed by the leaders of Zionist regime such as crimes of Netanyahu, Livni and Almart.

Also once again we declare our solidarity with the people and leader of Sudan.

I wish you all success and victory. *

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“And help one another in goodness and piety, and do not help one another in sin and aggression” (5:2)

His Excellency Mr. Mahmmoud Ahmadinejad, Esteemed President of the Islamic Republic of Iran,

His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani, Esteemed Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Assalamo Alaikom Va Rahmatollah Va Barakato

The issue of Palestine, since its occupation by the brutal Zionist enemy has been considered as the most crucial issue of the world of Islam. The issue of Palestine is considered as the most important issue in U.N agenda, which has priority over other issues.

The U.N organization has issued many resolutions regarding Palestine but none of them have been implemented because of selfish Israel. All the Zionist wars against Palestine were brutal, but among all these wars, the war against Gaza Strip on 27 December 2008 which took place for three weeks was the most cruel and brutal one. The Zionist Regime used all kinds of prohibited and destructive weapons during this war and thus killed thousands and thousands of innocent defenseless people in Gaza and destroyed houses, state or residential buildings, mosques… etc… The recent crimes of Zionist Regime in Gaza are clear violation of international law, human rights and international criteria. The freedom loving people of the world started to protest against all these cruel crimes of Zionists in Gaza and requested the immediate and unconditional stopping of Israel aggressions against Gaza Strip. Along with the demonstrations of the people in different parts of world, PUIC held a meeting on 14 January 2009 in Turkey. All the participants in this meeting adopted united position vis-à-vis the issue of Palestine and confronting Zionist Regime aggressions. In the resolutions adopted by them, they requested the parliaments of the member states to encourage their governments to help the people of Palestine to continue this just struggles until the achievement of their legitimate rights. In these resolutions they also requested the international community and concerned organizations particularly U.N to establish Fact Finding Committee and to condemn the criminals for committing the crimes.

This union held another meeting on 8 February 2009 in Nigeria and while condemned the brutal crimes of occupying regime of Al-Qods in Gaza, requested all the Islamic countries to make necessary coordination and documents regarding the crimes committed by Israel in Gaza and then grant all these proofs to the international courts and thus on this basis the  criminals of Israel could be punished. During that meeting all the member countries and international community were requested to grant humanitarian aid to Gaza and to participate in the process of reconstruction of Gaza and at the same time to make all the necessary efforts for return of all displaced Palestinians to their motherland.

The sympathy of the people of the world vis-à-vis the issue of Palestine and holding this international conference at this time with the title of : “support for Palestine, symbol of resistance and Gaza scarify of crime”, and participation of many heads of parliaments and legal experts from Islamic countries, indicate the Islamic awareness of the world vis-à-vis the violated rights of the people of Palestine and helping this country to gain victory and become independent with Al-Qods as a capital.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We express our concern regarding the recent acts of Zionist Regime while destroyed the Palestinian houses located around Al-Aqsa Mosque and led to displacement of Palestinians and in fact is trying to make geographical changes in Al-Qods and make it as a city for Jewish. So we requested all the Islamic countries and International Community and U.N and its affiliated associations to adopt immediate measures for preserving the historical monuments of Al-Qods.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

The national unity of Palestine is the guarantee for materialization of Palestine cause which is establishment of an independent country. Thus we request all the Palestinian groups to put aside their differences and express our happiness for the recent agreements among different Palestinian groups for establishing national unity.

I pray to the God Almighty for ever-increasing success of this conference in helping the people of Palestine and the success and prosperity of the Islamic Ummah.

Speaker of the House of Representatives of Bahrain

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

His Excellency Dr. Ahmadinejad

Honorable President of the Islamic Republic of Iran,

Distinguished Brothers,

Honorable Audience,

Assalamo Alaikom va Rahmatollah va Barakato

 I would like to thank our distinguished Iranian brothers for holding this important Conference and also I extend my gratitude to His Excellency Dr. Larijani, Esteemed Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran for inviting us to participate in this Conference. While emphasizing on the importance of holding these kinds of conferences, we express our sympathy with Palestinians during the process of brutal war of Zionist Regime against Gaza which by the grace of the God Almighty ended to the interest of brave people of Palestine.

Distinguished Audience,

We should always remember the devastating crimes and genocide committed by occupier against people of Gaza and we should never listen to those who say if we continue to recall the crimes committed against Palestinians, it will disturb peace and tranquility. No, we should not forget the past. Our response shall be as such that even if there is a just peace, that peace does not means that we should forget the past. At present the Zionist Regime is in peace with Germany but not only does not forget Holocaust but rather Israel uses all the means in order to revive this issue in the minds of Jews and Non-Jews for its interest.

Of course seeing the pictures of committed crimes against innocent people of Gaza who wanted to defend only their national cause, always remain in the minds of freedom-seeking people of the world. These realities should be reflected to our next generations so that they come to know that some parts of their Islamic territories were under occupation and when they read this verse:

“Glory be to Him who made His servant to go on a night from the Sacred Mosque to the remote mosque of which We have blessed the precincts”(17:1)

They should know that this verse refer to the ascension of Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) to Al- Aqsa in Palestine which is now under occupation of Zionist Regime.

Distinguished Brothers,

His Majesty King Hamd Bin Issa Al- Khalifeh the king of Bahrain requested to hold a National Committee in Bahrain for granting aid to the people of Gaza and collecting humanitarian aid for them.

Bahrain has always supported Palestine just issue in all international forums.

Also the House of Representatives of Bahrain since three years ago had held a Committee in order to grand aid to Palestine. The parliament of Bahrain from its own budget has already granted financial and non-financial aid to the people of Gaza.

 

Distinguished Audience,

Supporting people of Gaza and make efforts for reconstruction of Gaza Strip are international responsibilities. Everyone should try to remove economic siege and make efforts to open the passages and ways to Gaza, and use all kinds of political and economic pressure to create national conciliation. We do all our best for realization of these goals in Gaza.

We pray to the God Almighty to bless all the martyrs and to help us to be in service of Islamic Ummah.

Va salamo Aleikom va Rahmatollah va Barakato

In the Name of God, the compassionate the merciful

At first, I would like to express my gratitude to the people and government of the Islamic Republic of Iran for holding this conference and following up the Palestine issue and victory of the people of Palestine. I avail myself of this opportunity to refer to certain points which we should all be aware about them.

Gaza is the first reality and truth in Palestine. The reality which was realized after the great victory of Lebanon resistance in the summer of 2006. But there are other realities vis-à-vis this victory. The truths and realities are the crimes and genocide committed by Zionists who are racism. The reality which follows the massacre of innocent children, aged people and women. These acts show the cruel attitudes of Zionist Regime. Of course the Zionist enemy knows very well that today's children are fighters of tomorrow and today's mothers are zealots of tomorrow. Emphasizing these truths and realities are essential so that to stop any kinds of deceit and cheating against resistance and victory. Of course enemy is trying to bring Palestine issue to the point zero and to hidden the truths from the people of the world. Thus the duty of this Conference is to state the facts and realities regarding Palestine. Also it should prevent the political intentions of the supporters of Zionists, who are trying to destroy Palestine under the pretext of reconstruction of Gaza or granting economic aid.

The Palestine issue is Islamic and Arabic issue and also it is the issue of all justice-seeking people of the world. Today the issue of Palestine needs practical consideration.

There are those who feel weakness when they talk about peace and tranquility. We should ask these people peace with whom? It should be created among which parties? For what? This approach guided us toward two political ideologies. Thus we should try to establish national dialogue in order to create solidarity and unity among people of Palestine, So that the issue of Palestine became fundamental issue in the Arab, Islamic and international world. Following up and implementing the goal is responsibility and duty of every people in the world which should be follow up widely and give support to arm resistance of the people of Palestine, without challenging other efforts and activities either political or non political efforts.

In any case the pillar and basis of this resistance strategy shall be the people of Palestine.

National plan of Palestine: Also this plan should be design on the basis of national broad-based participation particularly with the participation of those supporting Palestine. This plan must be based on supporting the legitimate resistance of the people of Palestine which respect human rights and UN charter. This plan can not be materialize unless through reconstruction of Palestine Liberation Organization, based on national participation and culture of resistance and democracy. Thus it is necessary to support all the Palestinian groups in order to materialize this great achievement and to create necessary materials for them in this regard. But of course only through direct dialogue and establishment of Palestine national parliament the above-mentioned achievement can be realized. The national Palestinian parliament shall be established after implementation of national plan. I should say that after passing from this stage then we can say that we have performed our historical duty.

I avail myself of this opportunity and send my sincere greetings to Mr. Omar Hassan Albashir, Esteemed president of Sudan. I think it is necessary that all the participants of this conference to send their message of solidarity to the president of Sudan. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to present my speech.*

 Head of  the parliament of Gambia

 

Thank you very much Mr. Chairman,

Distinguished colleagues, Speakers of various Muslim countries, Parliamentarians

Experts and other Personalities,

Mr. Chairman

Salam Aleykom Va  Rahmatollah Va Barakatoh

 First of all I would like to thanks H.E. Ali Larijani, Speaker of the parliament, my counter part and my brother for inviting us to this valuable event hosted by great Nation of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In order to discuss issues of paramount important for all Muslims including I myself and the president of Gambia who asked me to participate in the present gathering. That is the common cause for our brothers and sisters in Palestine against Zionism.

Mr. Chairman, we are Muslim countries facing the problems affected Palestine. We normally do not attend conference but this conference was important for the head of state because he has a touch for the Palestinian cause but it is so unfortunate that today we have to talk about brutality against Muslim brothers and women all over Africa, and especially in my country, because they are in fact fighting for the cause of Islam. And we also like to admire them who are still fighting shoulder to shoulder with your husbands, brothers, fathers, cousins, your sons. Fight for the cause of delivery of Palestine. Absolutely we should come and offer our financial support. We are speaking as members of African community and Islamic world. We have witness the strong resolution against Palestine and we as Muslim or non Muslim members of the Parliament of the world, shall take our action. We have rendered our assistance through the UN in this respect.

 As I look across the conference as a member of the International Parliamentary Union where the issue of Palestine has always been in top of the Agenda, we are the brothers and sisters who are trying to fight for our brothers and sisters in Palestine, so how can we fight for the cause of Palestine. The rockets and bombs are still hitting Gaza and people are targeted especially women and children. We in Africa can see through our TV that women and children are dying. Of course the role of women in the Palestinian issue is great. We salute Palestinian women all over Africa, and especially in my country, because they are in fact fighting for the cause of Islam. 

Mr. Chairman,

Yesterday, you were asking me to make statement and I said making statement is not important because we speak from our heart because we are true Muslims, and we want to see the solution for the issue of Palestine. In this respect we must cope with very strong issues. As a common platform in the world the Islamic Conference can help us to of support Palestinian cause. If we are Muslims, Islam is strong because the Almighty God is behind Islam. But Muslim has come together and sits together for the issue of the cause of Palestine which is very significant.  We have to listen to one another. Today as Muslim countries we shall make great efforts because the western world is unwilling to join and participate in the support for Islam. We shall be serious to fulfilled our objective, so Mr. Chairman’ I am asking my colleagues to make sure we come at a very strong solution so that our sisters and brothers, daughters and sons, live in great land of Palestine and especially in Gaza in peace and their sufferings stop. and it is on us, as Muslims, followers of Islam, to stop their sufferings. If we do not stop aggressor then they will extend their aggressions but whether they like it or not the Palestinians are supported by Islam.  It is Islam who will save them but we have to play our role in this respect. Make sure that our fight will reach a conclusion. Finally once again I want to take this opportunity to thank H.E. Dr. Ali Larijani, who is one of the very serious authorities that I respect in the Islamic Republic of Iran, because he wants to make sure that all Islamic countries to participate in realization of Islamic causes including Palestine issue. I thank president and speaker of the Islamic Republic of Iran as well as Parliament of the Islamic Republic of Iran and all brothers and sisters who came together in the present conference. Victory to the Palestine cause and long live Islam. *

Speech presented by H.E.  Mr. Farah Maaliem,

Deputy Head of the parliament of Kenya and Head of Iran and Kenya Parliamentarian Friendship Group *

 

In the Name of God ‘ The Compassionate the Merciful

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Distinguished Participants,

I join the remarks made in appreciating and thanking the organizers of this very important gathering. I also join in supporting the Palestinian cause. Dispossession and sufferings of Palestinian people now has been for almost 80 years. Now it seems it is the time to take serious actions for peace process. Genocide which has been committed against Palestinian people all the time gives us the impression that we must witness establishment of peace in Palestine for all Palestinians.

According to peace process some lands shall be returned to their Palestinian owners in return for the land taken from them. But what lands? It is important for all progressive countries in the world and most of the Arab countries and Muslim nations to come to this realization as a matter of fact and to be honest with ourselves. Because all the visible conditions imply that the Oslo peace process has forwarded only further establishment of Jewish settlements and further loss for Palestinians. The International community and the Arab and Islamic countries shall use every possible possibility to fight for the liberation of Palestinian people including oil I think. Based on all international rules and national constitutions we can take this measure in to consideration in favor of the oppressed Palestinian Nation. In the case of Palestinians it seems that lives of Palestinians are not as important comparing to the Israelis. The genocide which has been carried out, the successive veto used by super powers in this respect and the fact that all resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council have been rejected by Israeli and that nothing has been happened as a result of that, all make us disappointed.

Conclusion is that Palestine is the main victim of all the relevant events. So it is important for the present gathering that all participants use every available means in favor of Palestinians including sanctions against Israel, the fact is that the resolutions must be implemented and their implementations shall be supported by all members of the civilized world and international community.

Concerning Sufferings of Somalis people, we ask all international parties to support Somali in favor of Somali people in order to put an end to their sufferings. I also now wish to refer to sufferings of the minorities in the world including the Boa Muslim people in Myanmar. We have never talked about them. The human life is the same for all in every part of the world. It is important to extend our support for them and encourage the international community to support them as well as for some reasons we shall support Palestinian people strongly. This shall be our message to all leaders of the world. We gathered here because the rights of every people in the world are the same as the rights of other people.

Thank you.*

 

 

 

 

Speech presented by H.E. Dr. Hamzeh Mansour *

Representative of the Parliament of Jordan and Head of the Islamic Group in Parliament

 

In the Name of God, the Almighty

I present my speech on behalf of the representatives of the Jordan parliament, parties and media.

God bless you all, undoubtedly you achieved victory in Palestine or perhaps it is better if we say resistance which at present have lofty concept for all of us. Now it is a time in which the Zionists with full support of world arrogant power and without paying attention to holy rules and traditions of contemporary world commit oppression. Support that has been created by imperialist powers. The Islamic Republic of Iran has taken great initiative in holding this Conference. The conference which is hosted by the Islamic consultative Assembly “in support of Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of crime", and is hold to help and support resistance and brave people of Palestine vis-à-vis the attacks of Zionist enemy.

This conference considers Palestine with all its potentialities, history and civilization.

 

Mr. President, 

Distinguished participants,

We are at the stage which every one should make effort and every one should be honest, frank and perform its duty. The duty clarifies our position in the arena of conflict with Israel. Then the border line between death and life will be clear for us. What I want to say is that Palestine is the issue that concerns all of us: Arabs or non-Arabs, Muslim or non-Muslims. At present enemy is in the hearth of Palestine. Our Palestinian brothers are killed because of their firm believes. They are killed and martyred for their territories.

Palestine is not the last revenge for Israel but in fact it is the beginning for Israel to start its amenity with others. This attitude emerges from expansionist and racial discriminatory policies of Zionist regime. The regimes which dose not respect the rights of others and in the other word it dose not accept the existence of Muslims.

So helping Palestinians is must and religious duty and humanitarian act. Therefore we should demonstrate and uprising for the victory of Palestine even it might be necessary to give military aid.

This is duty of all peace-loving people of the world. It is the issue that we will be question about it on the resurrection day. The enemy undoubtedly could not stop its expansionist policies and would continue its aggression and siege.

Secondly: Palestine will not give up as a result of Israel pressure. The Palestine defeat could be materializing only by diverting Palestine cause. But what is the real way of Palestine? In response we should say: today Palestine issue is within the humanitarian, Islamic and Arab framework. The enemy by blockage of Gaza is trying to make distance between Gaza and Arab and Islamic world. If arm resistance would be taken in to consideration, then it would be consider as the most suitable tool for freedom of the people of Palestine if we do not have faith we will not achieve victory. Today there are long way till the victory of Palestine. If the enemy was not so strongly supported by other powers, certainly it could not so strongly and brutally attack Palestine. So undoubtedly Palestine issue is Arabic and Islamic issue.

Thirdly: if resistance would not be denied then the enemy would not be so strong. Of course creating the gap among Muslims on the basis of ethnic groups, religious sects etc have decreased our potentialities and capabilities.

Unfortunately the disputes between our nations and their leaders and creation of civil conflicts in the Islamic and Arab societies, lead to negligence vis-à-vis the important issue which was struggle against world Zionism and imperialism. Therefore one of our important duties at present is to avoid any civil conflict. We should strengthen self-confidence among ourselves, and continue solidarity till realization of permanent unity. The same unity which created our great civilization in the history.

Fourthly: we should not forget that enemy is very weak at present.

Today after achievement of the victory in the war, the necessary potentialities have been created for defeating Zionist enemy along with the victory achieved on summer of 2006, which ever very great victories. Therefore siege, pressure and even war of enemy can not make us weak. I repeat once again that by the grace of the God Almighty the recent victories including victory achieved on Lebanon (summer of 2006) made us stronger.

The unity and solidarity of the nation based on beliefs can bring great success. We should not forget that victory achieved in Lebanon was as a result of having strong belief and faith. Gaza achieved victory based on its belief and faith.

We should remember that with strong faith the solidarity shall be integrated and the confidence shall be strengthening, and thus victory can be achieved.

Fifthly: we believe that the bloods and martyrs which we have given in Gaza are as a result of tolerance of the people of Gaza which according the tradition of holy prophet (P.B.U.H), tolerance and sacrifice are two important elements of victory. So we send our greetings to the martyrs of Gaza who are superior to all of us. Also we send our greetings to the war prisoners who destroyed tyranny with their tolerance and patience. With greetings to all of you distinguished participants who condemned any act or measure that will lead to the breaking of resistance, will and intention of the people of Gaza. Resistance is the best way for achieving victory.

Sixthly: we witness martyrdom of the people of Gaza. We see their sufferings; we see how their houses had been destroyed. But in spite of all these events they are patient and resist.

But the most important duty of all of us is to defend Al-Aqsa mosque which Zionists are trying to destroy it under pretext of finding the body of Davood. Thus I take the attention of all the Islamic nations to help and support Al-Aqsa mosque and encourage their government to cut off their diplomatic relations with Israel.

In this regard we shall all condemn the crimes of enemy and help the people of Palestine to be free from the oppression of Zionist regime.

At the end I refer to the verdict issue by International Criminal Court regarding president of Sudan. We strongly shall condemn this verdict and shall tell the president and people of Sudan that we always support them.

We firmly believe that all the oppressions impose over Sudan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, and Palestine, could be face only by resistance. We express once again our sympathy with Sudan and thank the Islamic Consultative Assembly for holding this Conference. *

 

 

 

Speech presented by H.E. Mr. Farhan Abol Hiija *

Secretary General of Fateh, Intifada and Sa'egeh Forces,

 

In the Name of God, the Almighty

I sincerely thank the efforts of the Islamic Consultation Assembly for holding the forth International Conference "in Support of Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of Crime". Since the time when Zionist plan was implemented in Palestine and other Arab countries, and since the time that world arrogant powers including Imperialist and colonial powers started to support this plan while resorted to oppression in all international forums, the people of Palestine were and are still under oppression.

Today the US which is symbol of wickedness in the world guide this plan of supporting Israel and for implementing appropriately its role uses all kinds of destructive weapons. Of course there are other western countries and parties who support US in this field.

So we request all the justice loving people in the international community to support Palestine to materialize its aim and cause. Also we request all these groups while reject all the claims and lies of Israel regime, to face and oblige this regime to obey international Islamic and Arab wish and intention so that the cause and objective of Palestinians for returning to their homeland to be materialized.

We emphasize that the people of Palestine shall certainly continue the resistance as a basic method for realization of their goals in returning refugees to their home and territory. Also it will not allow that terrorist conspiracies, occupation of territories, collective immigration, constructing Jewish settlements, confiscating water resources and denying of national rights of the people to be continued.

The myth resistance of the people of Gaza, which caused many martyrs and wounded people and destruction of houses and public buildings, shall never be wasted.

Our people are very determining to achieve freedom of Palestine territory and destroy Zionist plan and all the terrible conspiracies and useless long talks.

Here I take your permission to send my greetings to all the people of the world including Muslims or non-Muslims who express their solidarity with the people of Palestine. Also we send our greetings to all those who along with Palestinians resisted all the brutal crimes and destructive and terrorist acts of Zionist regime. The Zionist regime has committed the most horrible crimes and oppression including destruction of residential houses, and massacre and genocide of Palestinian children and women. So once again we request that all these crimes and oppressions of Israel have to be condemned in the international court.

Also we express our gratitude to all those who were involved in the process of uprising and demonstrations in all over the world.

I do hope all the participants will achieve this goal and objective which are to help the resistance of the people of Palestine and to strengthen the culture of resistance. Also we wish success for all of them in arranging all these programs and granting aid to Gaza. We send our greetings to all the Arab countries for supporting the culture of resistance.

We send our greetings to the Palestinian and Arab fighters particularly Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah leader of national and Islamic resistance of Lebanon that by the grace of the God and support of Arab and Islamic nations and all the
freedom – loving people of the world were able to achieve two victories; the first victory was in the year 2000 in which the Lebanese resistance groups could send out Zionist occupiers from south of Lebanon without any condition.

The second victory was the war of June of 2006 which brought great honor and victory for Lebanon.

We wish success for Palestinian resistance and send our greetings to Palestinian martyrs and all those who are in the prisons of Zionist regime.*

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Dear Brother Mr. Chairman,

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

With greetings to all of you distinguished participants in this conference. At first I express my gratitude to the organizers of this Conference and I pray to the God Almighty for the success of this Conference.

What we heard from different parts of the world, is that Gaza gain victory.

Gaza is the sign of dignity for all Muslims and etc. so by hearing all these things about Gaza then certain questions will be raise: the first question is weather Gaza is separated from other regions or is a part of entire territory of Palestine? The second question is weather all these killings and genocides were performed for the first time? Third question is: what is the reason for this resistance and victory which was gained in Gaza?

Fourth question is: Dose Palestinian woman play any role in this great victory and event? And if the answer is positive then how come they could achieve this role?

The answer to first question is that Gaza is a part of Palestine and Palestine is an Islamic issue and while we talk about Palestine, we are talking about ideological issue which has relations with "Al- Qods mosque” It is an ideological issue which is related to the believes of all people, therefore Gaza as an Islamic issue is not separated from Palestine issue. When we talk about Gaza we should not forget West Bank which is under pressure. The land of 1948, Haifa, Aka and Yaffa whose people were obliged to immigrate and were displaced, all these events will teach us that Palestine issue is a comprehensive issue of all Arabs and Muslims.

The answers to second question is that the killings which took place in Gaza and thus all the freedom-loving people of the world started uprising, were done for the first time or were first range of killings?

We should say no that was not the first range of killings but it was a part of the chain killings, casualties and conspiracies which people of Palestine were force to face them.  We should refer to them from 1917 which were known as the days of Balfour promises till now. But if we talk about these killings and casualties is for saying that these killings and casualties describe resistance or the good sense of loftiness which lay in all these destruction and casualties.

The third question: what were the reasons for this victory and weather they were achieved suddenly? The answer to this question is divided in two parts. The first section is resistance which was even stronger among Palestinian women and children and it has many reasons that should be search within 35 years of the history of Palestine. Since our great sheikh Mr. Ahmad Yasin started to train Palestinian children to defend their legitimate rights and teaches them that land is a part of our belief and wanted them to defend their land and territory. Thus those women and children started to serve the people of Palestine during all these years and their services either from scientific or cultural points were directed by the health, educational, social organizations. This training teaches people of Palestine how to choose and what to choose? And they choose Hamas.  But the second step after legislation that means second part of question was the beginning of the activities of Hamas which came to scene with clear program, and started to take heavy responsibilities. So all the conspiracies were designed to destroy this goal, but our brothers made their best efforts. Thus they not only protected resistance but supported it in all the stages. The reason is that the leaders of Hamas and its members in spite of having different posts still were and are standing next to the people of Palestine in the first line.

But with regard to reconstruction, the Hamas in spite of lack of communication, blockade and siege still could promote awareness among people and strengthen the culture among people and created security and justice for the people of Palestine, who were deprived from them for many years. Hamas became a pattern for the people of Palestine.

The last question is weather Palestinian women have play any role in this victory? The answer is yes. The Palestinian women firstly strengthen the relations between families particularly the families of martyrs and families of prisoners while tried to resist the economic siege and blockade and lived simply in order to resist. These women say: we accept all the sufferings and pains but we can not tolerate the enemy.

Therefore the Palestinian women had play significant role in arm conflict.  They play important role in sending arms from one place to other place. Also they play important role in giving shelter to the fighters.

The Palestinian women played significant role in liberating 70 fighters who were under arrest in one of the mosque. We should not forget that their most important role was their belief and ideology. The Palestinian women believe to martyrdom. But how Palestinian woman could reach to this understanding? The answer is: they took pattern from all the women of prophet and thus could play the role of those pioneers in the history of Islam. The role which was very significant. These significant characteristics of Palestine women and people are the reasons for their victory.

So now after this victory we should all cooperate in order to reconstruct Gaza. Of course this nation achieved victory by relying on their will and beliefs. Their will and beliefs overcame the arms. So today it is the time for reconstruction of Gaza and it is an essential issue, but the most important fact is the resistance of the people of Palestine for the liberation of Palestine. *

 

Speech presented by H.E. Mrs. Liyla Khaled *

Member of Central Council of People's Republic for Liberation of Palestine*

 

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the leader and noble people of Islamic Republic of Iran for supporting Palestine issue particularly with regard to this point that their supports are not limited only to the holding of conference. As you are aware very soon it will be 8 of March. On March there are various occasions and events for women. 8 of March is Woman-Day and first of March is Mother- Day .The 30th of March is Earth-Day. On these occasions we praise all the Arab mothers whose children had been  martyred  in Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq and women who themselves had been martyred; women who sacrifice their life for freedom of their country. Woman is creative who defend survival of society. So here we honor the memory of martyred Maryam Saleh, Al Ryashi, Dalah Almagrami, Noor Amal Shalhoob, Hanadi Deraghem, Jaradat, Ayat Al-Okhras, Vafa Edris and other women who have been martyred. So we respect and praise all those martyred women who sacrifice themselves and shed blood for Palestine so that we live.

Also from here I would like to praise those women who are arrested by Israeli military forces and now are living in Israel prisons including: Rebeat Hamayel, Ameneh Mani, Ataf Almayal. It is an honor for us and feels proud to recall their name. the women who confronted Zionist executioners and shouted in occupiers courts that our country is the glory and honor for us and our honor and glory do not exist in our corpses while you naked them in order to deceit our youths. This is characteristic of Palestinian woman. Palestinian woman can not be defeated. She is the one who train great leaders and heroes in the society. All the freedom-loving fighters are grown by Palestinian women. So we send our greetings to all Palestinian women.

I should refer to Palestinian mothers too. The mothers of captives and prisoners who are present in Israeli prison, mothers of fighters for freedom. Greetings to you brave mothers in Gaza who act like mother of Omar Barghoi.

It is merited in this Conference we send our greetings to all these brave mothers because these women strengthen the pillars of resistance. Our greetings to you mother of martyr Hadi Nasrolah and mother of martyr Emad Magneyeh and all those mothers who scarify their children for the country and Islam. So on behalf of all these brave mothers I tell to our sisters and brothers inside and outside Palestine that considering all these sacrifices they should get united. We have long way to go and our children and husbands obey only the God Almighty. We have all common elements that on the basis of them we can strengthen the program of resistance.

The emergence of disunion will have negative effects on mothers and all other members of family. We should not give privilege to our enemy. The enemy that has already proved that it dose not want peace and tranquility in Palestine.

We are responsible to create peace on the basis of the will and intention of our martyrs. No body brings peace for us on the table of negotiation. Peace should be taken, and we want it since we are victim of terrorism. I am the member of these women's association. At the end I should say that we Palestinian women and those women who support Palestine would not like to talk with Mrs. Hilary Clinton or Mrs. Livini former foreign minister of Israel.

We are women who enter jihad for realizing freedom of our country.

At the end I would like to thanks the organizers of this Conference and all the participants.*

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

At first I would like to extend my gratitude to the Islamic consultative Assembly for holding the fourth International Conference on support of Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of crime.

When we talk about resistance firstly we should evaluate the reasons that have led to the victory of people’s resistance. I believe that resistance and victory of the people of Palestine in Gaza are continuation of former victory in Lebanon.

First victory was materialized on 2000. At that time because of brave resistance of Lebanese forces the army of enemy was obliged to leave an Arab country unconditionally for the first time. After this victory, the war of June 2006 started. The brave people of Hezbollah defeated the powerful army of Zionism, the army which was called undefeated army.

On this basis, our resistance groups remained stable in Gaza Strip, of course resistance proves that how powerfully they faced enemy and did not led them to continue their criminal objectives.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

While resistance in Gaza gained victory as a result of wars of 2000 and 2006 in Lebanon and also I should say that Hezbollah’s victory was effected by the victory of the great people of Iran under leadership of Imam Khomeini, the person that pave the ground for oppressed people of the world.

I refer to this point because the sign of great victory with the help of the God, Almighty is very close.

Dear Sisters and Brothers’

Distinguished Audience,

Materialization of national solidarity and conciliation is the issue of Palestinian and particularly at present condition it is an essential objective. But we should consider that there are two programs in Palestine:

According to the first program: conciliation with enemy is the first selective strategy and this is a program that some Arab states follow them. They do not accept any other choice for confronting Zionist enemy and this action would not led them recognize the legitimate rights of the people of Palestine.

The followers of this program signed Oslo Treaty with Zionist enemy and recognized the entity of Zionist regime in 78% of occupied territories of 1948 and claimed that West-Bank is under dispute. Besides, they sign other pacts too which all of them rejected the rights of the people of Palestine. Like: Paris Economic Agreement, Taba Agreement and Al-Galil Agreement. According to the last mentioned agreement the enemy has a right over Al-Aqsa Mosque, and half of Al-Khalil was given to enemy.

Then the next step was to drawn the map for roads and to establish four lateral committee the priority of this committee was to end resistance and to recognize Zionist regime. Also this program emphasized that any government in Palestine should accept the establishment of the country for Jewish and Palestinians and that means to recognize Israel.

Then there was Arab peace process of 2002. According to this peace process and on the basis of this claim that there should be a just solution, then the issue regarding the right to return for refugees was practically abolished.

All of you know who has drawn this plan and for what reason. The plan which according to enemy does not has the value to be written on paper also, and then this plan was send to Annapolis Conference, the conference that its effects are still continuing.

But second program which was the program of resistance and not recognizing Zionist Regime. This program relies on Palestine people’s intention and is determine on the basis of right to return and liberation of the occupied territories. After 20 years today it has been proved to every one that program of conciliation and negotiation with enemy not only did not bring any achievements to the interest of Palestine but it rather led to further construction of Jewish settlements in all over West Bank for changing  Al-Qods to a Jewish city.

On the basis of what had been said, the national peace plan was raised in Egypt and five Committees were established in this regard. The most important Committee were, Committee of reconstruction, revival of Palestine Liberation Movement on the basis of arm resistance as a just right through revival of national charter which were abolished on 1998 by self-governing administration.

For success of Palestine Liberation Movement all different groups and members of people’s union and struggling personalities should participate in this organization so that Palestine Liberation Movement shall become real representative of the people of Palestine . Also we should recall that the other committees which were established did not have the potentiality to materialize national conciliation and national cause including the right to return for refugees.

Also I should mention that I am sure that conciliation program will never withdraw and thus resistance groups should be fully aware particularly with regard to their conspiracies like Egypt meeting.

At the end I wish ever-increasing success for this conference.

His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani’ Esteemed Head of Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran,

Excellency, Heads of Parliaments and parliamentary Delegations

Distinguished audiences,

Salamo Aliakom Va- Rahmatollah Va Barakato

At first on behalf of the Qatar delegation I would like to thanks all the distinguished participants who participated in this conference for supporting Palestine "symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of crime." Also I thanks the Islamic consultative Assembly for the warm hospitality extended to us and also the government and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran for efficient organizing of this Conference.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Today we have gathered here while the world of Islam witnesses the unstable situation; the situation which create threat and disunion. The world of Islam is still condemned for terrorism and for having mass destructive weapons. The world of Islam is still condemned for apposing the policies of globalization and emancipation of women. As a result their positions and power decrease. All these events will take place while all the Islamic nations are looking to be united in order to face all these threats.

 

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Under present conditions when the world is moving toward injustice, our efforts for defending ourselves and freeing our territories from occupiers would be called terrorism. Any arm in our hand, would be considered as mass destructive weapon and we can not convince the west. Even our democracy is not accepted by them because we do not listen to them and do not act according their will and intention.

All the UN resolutions regarding Israel are nothing rather than papers, while if these resolutions were against Arab or Islamic countries then all the international organizations and other countries of the world would react. So all these issues caused lack of confidence for Muslims regarding international organizations and realization of justice.

They wanted to isolate and blockade the people of Palestine under the shadow of all these plans and events and deprive the Palestinians from their basic needs of life, while Israel was constructing all the economic and political communicating routes in different Palestinian occupied territories, the displacement and immigration of Palestinians was implemented by Israel. Israel performs the most horrible crimes and oppressions against Palestinians.

A wall was constructed around Gaza strip and the Israel continued brutal attacks with different kinds of prohibited weapons.

But by grace of the God Almighty Gaza gained victory based on resistance. But what is the most painful is the integration of will and intention of Palestinian soldiers in West Bank and Gaza strip. So from here I invite you all the participants to further encourage and strengthen the will and intention of Palestinian people and to support them to have once again strong solidarity and unity. We should try to break the siege and help people of Gaza.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Qatar with the leadership of His Excellency Mr. Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa al Thani shall always support people of Palestine.

Thus the King of Qatar took the initiative in this regard and for helping the Palestinian brothers and sisters held an extra ordinary meeting of Arab leaders in Doha- Also Qatar has already dispatched its caravan of aid to Gaza strip.

Qatar believes that permanent peace can not be establish as long as all the routes are closed by Israel and at the same time Israel dose not act according international resolutions. So we request UN organization to perform its duty and support people of Palestine, and oblige Israel to accept investigation and inspectors of Nuclear Agency (like other countries of the region) and to request this regime (Israel) to respect the treaty of non-proliferation of nuclear arms.

Government and people of Qatar hope that this Conference brings great achievements for the Palestinian sisters and brothers Particularly in Gaza. If so this victory shall be as a result of the common efforts of the Arab and Islamic world. I wish success for materialization of the goals and objectives of this conference.*

Speech presented by His Excellency Mohammad Hassan Al-Amin *

In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful

Dear Brother Mr. Chairman,

Dear Sisters, Brothers and Distinguished participants,

With greetings to all of you distinguished participants in this conference.

Also I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran for his wise speech which gave us particular guidance in order to support and follow up Palestine issue. The sacrifice that not only can be seen in Arab world but rather it can not be seen in the Islamic world. Secondly I deem it necessary to express my gratitude to my dear brother His Excellency Dr. Mahmmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran and also dear brother His Excellency Dr. Ali Larigani, Esteemed Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly. Also I express my congratulations on the occasion of the anniversary of the holy Islamic revolution of Iran which pave the ground for sacrifice and devotion of the Palestine and all the oppressed people of the world. The opportunity which other countries did not gave to Palestinians. Iran is a country which creates in all its parts a base for creating solidarity with the support of freedom loving people of the world. Iran faces all the threats and dose not has fear from any powerful country. This is the position of Iran, the position that can not be seen today in any Arab country.

Also on behalf of Mr. Mohammad Saghar, Head of Arab Union Parliament I would like to express my gratitude to all of you Participants in this very important Conference. The Arab Union Parliament expresses its solidarity and support to all the decisions taken by 4th Tehran Conference. We believe that all the challenges vis-à-vis Islamic world and Arab world are very important and should not be ignored.

Revengefulness of Zionist regime has aimed all the Islamic and Arab countries. Whatever we witnessed during crisis of Gaza strip and its 22 days war and even different crisis which have taken place in Palestine and other Islamic and Arabic countries have all one result and it was era of organized threats of west and Israel against world of Islam and Arabs. In fact it is new effort of colonialism. The effort which we have not seen or hear like it before! The recent action of International criminal court against president of Sudan is a good example regarding these threats and policies. As we witnessed the use of prohibited weapons against innocent and non-military people in Gaza and particularly children, women and aged people which are good example for confirming above-mentioned and why the so called international regime of justice did not even once protested about all these brutal and savage acts of Israel .Why they are trying to legalize all these brutal acts which are perform for destroying basic right of resistance? Of course if our loyal and fighter brothers from Hamas require these kinds of arms and missiles then it can destroy the balance with Zionist enemy. That is why they want to disarm and destroy the Hamas movement. But in spite of all these events we suggest our brothers from Hamas do not have any doubt and continue their legitimate resistance.

But our demands for holding these kinds of conferences are to provide grounds for loftiness and growth of the people of Palestine.

We try to recognize their problems and remove obstacles for them and to further strengthen their spirits for continuation of this resistance because we are well aware about all problems.

In spite of all these facts, the war has break out and what should be done now is reconstruction. Of course Hamas should take the responsibility of reconstruction because those who have money and plan for reconstruction are in fact those who had certain roles in breaking out war and killing innocent people of Gaza.

We should remember that this holy place was always place of dispute and conflict and that is why it is consider as very sensitive place.

So today this territory needs help and assistance for reconstruction. From here we would like to send our greetings to all the families of martyrs and particularly war wounded people and we pray to the God Almighty for the blessings of the martyrs and victory of the resistance.

The most important issue is unity and solidarity of the people of Palestine. This is the issue which we should pay great importance to this issue in the Arab Union Parliament and we encourage all the Palestinian groups to have solidarity and unity because the success of resistance depends on their unity and solidarity. Of Course this is duty of every Arab and Muslim people to take every step in order to materialize this objective.

Here I deem it necessary to refer to the verdict issued by International Criminal Court against president of Sudan. Here I would like to invite the presidents and heads of all the Islamic and Arab countries to unity and solidarity. Verdict against Sudan is the beginning of conspiracy against Islamic and Arab leaders. At first they condemned president of Sudan and then they will continue to condemn other presidents and heads of Islamic and Arab countries. We all know this verdict was baseless and illogical, while the International Criminal Court close its eyes regarding the crimes committed against people of Palestine. They raise issue of Darfur of Sudan without any reason. So here I would like to thank you all for supporting Sudan and particularly I thanks for taking diplomatic gesture of dispatching a delegation headed by Dr. Ali Larijani to Sudan. I welcome them from here and I should say this is what we expected as a unity and solidarity among Muslims and Arabs.

I do hope the God Almighty strengthen this unity among Islamic and Arab countries day by day. God bless you all.*

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Mahmmoud Ali Alshadadi,*

Deputy Head of the parliament of Yemen

 

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Esteemed   Head of Conference,

Distinguished Heads of Delegations,

Honourable Political and Religious Leaders in support of the Rights of the Palestinian People,

Assalamo Aleikom Va Rahamatolah Va Barakato

On behalf of parliamentarian delegation of Yemen and my own, I would like to express my gratitude to His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani, Honorable Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran for inviting us to participate in this Conference and also for the warm hospitality extended to us by our Iranian brothers.

At first I would like to send my greetings to brave people of Gaza who filled the pages of our history with bravery and once again revive our dignity and broke the power and pride of Zionist enemy and force the enemy to withdraw unconditionally from Gaza strip and thus the goals and objectives of enemy were not materialized.

Zionist Regime by committing its recent crimes in Gaza opened another page of genocide and massacre in its black records of crimes which are against all kinds of international laws and criteria and are obvious violation of human rights of Fourth convention of Geneva. During its attacks, the Zionist Regime not only used prohibited weapons but attacked houses and schools and many children and women and innocent people were killed.

The most important point was that Zionist Regime attacked Gaza at the time when Gaza was under economic siege for more than two years. All the roads for importing foods, medicines and basic needs of people, were closed. All their crimes and siege were performed while certain governments of Arab and Islamic world kept silent and United States of America and other international community cooperated with Zionist Regime.

In the Republic of Yemen we nationally and officially condemned the occupying Regime and expressed our sympathy with the sorrow and outcry of the people of Gaza and supported the resistance front of Palestine. In this regard the House of Representatives of Yemen held special meeting for studying the crimes and its consequences. Also we requested all Arabic, Islamic, regional and international parliaments and all U.N Organizations supporting Human Rights, to perform their humanitarian and historical responsibilities and duties vis-à-vis the atrocities and brutal acts of Zionist Regime and to assist Palestinian people to free their occupied territories and to establish an independent government with Al-Qods as a capital.

Mr. Chairman,

Distinguished Audience,

I want to be frank with you, we have gathered here today after two months since the beginning of crimes against Gaza Strip which is in fact very late. It was better if we would hold this meeting much earlier. But unfortunately our mechanisms for holding such conferences are not very rapid and are not simultaneous with rapidity of world changes and developments. But any way even with retard it is better to come together in these conferences for further exchange of views rather than not holding at all such conferences.

Before we ask something from others it is better to start from ourselves and to help our brothers in Palestine and particularly in Gaza as much as we can. Here I would like to request all distinguished participants to continue their financial and political supports to Palestine resistance and to further increase these process. At the same time all of us should start very rapidly the construction of Gaza Strip. Helping Gaza is a necessity and not only a voluntary act. You all agree with me that we have the potentialities and possibilities to help people of Gaza and resistance and to support their legitimate rights.

Here I would like to request the Conference in support of Palestine to establish a legal team for condemning and punishing the criminals for committing crimes in Gaza. The Zionist criminals shall be condemned so that do not get further opportunity to continue their atrocities against defense less people of Gaza.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

We, as the representatives of our people are obliged to defend freedom and human rights and particularly the rights of our people. Also we should not keep quite vis-à-vis the violation of international justice and emergence of dual criteria in which cruelty has become a law. We should try to make coordination between position taken by Islamic and Arab states, and to be united in order to support the people of Palestine and their legitimate rights for establishment of an independent country.

Also we requested the esteemed Secretary General of United Nations and Security Council to start investigations with regard to brutal crimes committed by Zionist Regime in Gaza and to move within framework of establishing justice and having fair interaction with the people of Palestine.

Mr. Chairman,

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

At the end of my speech I would like to ask my Palestinian brothers to join together and to have unity, solidarity and tolerance for confronting Zionist enemy, the enemy which today, more than ever, is moving toward extremities. 

In the Republic of Yemen, our President has asked all Palestinian groups and at top of them Hamas and Fateh, to come to Yemen for further discussion and solving disputes and creating unity for confronting the atrocities of Zionist Regime. I thank you and pray to the God Almighty for our success.

Assalamo Alaikom va Rahmatollah Va Barakato

                                            

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Ali Al Rashed *

Deputy Head of the Parliament of Kuwait

 

In the Name of God, the compassionate, the merciful

His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani, Esteemed Head of Islamic Consultative Assembly

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Honorable Heads and Members of participating Delegations

At first I would like to express my gratitude and greetings as well as those of the parliament of Kuwait to the government, people and parliament of the brother country of the Islamic Republic of Iran for hosting this Conference and granting necessary facilities for its success.

I thank Dr. Larijani for holding this Conference at the present time while the situation of the world, the region and Islamic Ummah is very complicated. Also I avail myself of this opportunity that on behalf of His Excellency Mr. Jasem Mohammad Al Kharafi, Esteemed Head of Parliament of Kuwait to wish success for this Conference.

Esteemed chairman,

Dear friends,

This conference is being held at the time while Gaza, Middle East and Palestine witness very dangerous and complicated situation.

There are killings and destruction by Israel regime against Palestinian children and people in Gaza strip which indicates the expansionist policies of Zionist regime. In this regard we can also refer to Diryasin massacre and other genocide and killings against Palestinian children and children of other Arab states. The recent result of elections in Israel and victory of extremists in Israel, emphasize further aggression and oppression of Israel in this region in near future. Unless we  try to make unity and solidarity among Arab and Islamic  world.

Mr. Chairman,

The present situation prove that the only strategic way for facing Israel aggressions and plans is Islamic unity and solidarity and also making confidence among ourselves. Confidence which guarantee respect of powerful countries to the sovereignty of small countries. We should strengthen the pillars of our cooperation for achieving the rights of the people of Palestine. Thus we would be able to resist the aggression plan of occupier Israel.

Mr. Chairman,

Dear friends,

In Kuwait, we firmly believe that support for people of Palestine and their legitimate rights are considered as the most important national values of Kuwait. Here I would like to refer to the resolutions adopted during summit economic conference which was held at the beginning of the recent year. These resolutions include provisions as follows: condemnation of military attack of Israel against Palestinian people in Gaza strip; talks among all parties regarding attack on Gaza strip and creating national conciliation among all Palestinian groups. Also this Conference emphasized on reconstruction of Gaza and improvement of health and humanitarian situation in this region.

Kuwait Parliament was one of the first centers which requested for holding special meeting for Gaza in which 34 million dollars was allocated for Gaza reconstruction.

The government of Kuwait also granted 200 million dollars with coordination of others member countries of Cooperation Council, to the investment funds for reconstruction of Gaza. Here I deem it necessary to express my appreciation to His Excellency Mr. Shikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah for his important role in bringing success for Summit Conference of Kuwait and making conciliation among Arab states. This conciliation can be considered as effective move for facing Israel aggressions.

Mr. Chairman,

Dear friends,

This Conference should not be limited only to issuance and adoption of resolutions regarding condemnation of brutal aggressions of Israel, but it should bring new ideas. Here I would like to recommend following suggestions:

We should support the efforts made by regional states or national organizations for putting pressure on International Criminal Court for trail of Israel war criminals. Because the Israeli criminals have committed various crimes against children, women and humanity.

To make necessary cooperation and coordination with International and regional Parliamentary organizations (IPU) and PUIC and APA in order to support the efforts made by the republic of Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

At the end I once again thank the Islamic Republic of Iran for hosting this conference and the warm hospitality extended to us. I wish success and victory for all of you. *

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Mr. Saol Antonio Ortega Campus *

Deputy Head of National Assembly of the Republic of Venezuela

 

At first I deem it necessary to thank Dr. Larijani the Head of Islamic consultative Assembly for inviting me to participate in this Conference. Also I congratulate the people of Iran for the 30th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic revolution. With greetings to all the participants I would like to extend the warm and sincere greetings of the people of Venezuela particularly those of Mr. Chavez president of Venezuela to all the honorable participants.

 In this Conference once again we express our solidarity with the people of Palestine and its organizations. After Israeli attack against Gaza, our solidarity became further stronger. Venezuela expelled ambassador of Israel according the order of the president Chavez and cuts off its diplomatic relations with Israel in order to emphasize on its support for the oppressed people of Gaza.

On the other side the people of Venezuela expressed their solidarity with the people of Gaza through different cultural, commercial, and student organizations. They also started great demonstrations in the streets in order to express their support for the people of Gaza.

Granting humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza was another gesture of the government of Venezuela in supporting oppressed people of Gaza. All these support for the people of Gaza were in line with the struggle against imperialism and colonialism.

We have come a long distance from Latin America to say that Latin America is not a backyard or base of western imperialism and in our region we have achieved solidarity and integrity in our struggles against colonialism and imperialism and at present we are trying to make necessary changes in our constitution so that to be able to help all these freedom-loving people of the world and Palestinians who are struggling for liberty and freedom and from our point of view are looking for socialism.

Today I heard the speeches of the leaders and heads of different participating countries in this conference. So we have come to know the problems of Palestinians so our most important sympathy with Palestine is the struggle against imperialism in Latin America. We do hope to see soon the same position to be adopted by the leaders of Latin America. We think this is best way for helping Palestine. Undoubtedly all the efforts of great powers and European powers are to crate segregation and disunion among the peoples and nations who fight for freedom.

Today it is evident for all that this evil regime of imperialism is trying to create disunion and conflict among Latin American countries. So we believe that preserving of this unity and solidarity could be the best solution for strengthening resistance and solidarity of the people of Palestine. This conference is a good example for supporting the people of Palestine and condemning inhuman crimes of Zionist enemy. In fact this conference is an example of faith and honesty for supporting oppressed people of Gaza. At present we are living in a very good condition because imperialism has been injured. Therefore we should continue firmly our struggles against imperialism and colonialism. We should take this opportunity and continue our struggles. I should add here that before military aggression, the cultural aggression of Medias started in Israel. The lobby of Zionism employed all its powerful media and communication tools in order to fade the struggles of the people of Palestine and those people who fight for their freedom. Before attack, Israel tried to introduce all Palestinian revolutionary organizations as terrorist organizations. Why? Of course it was for introducing and presenting wrong picture about PLO to the people the world.

Today, these lies have been expanded through electronic mass media. At first we should try to prove to the world that Zionist and imperialist say nothing except lies. Because these propaganda Medias are working very strongly and are trying to nullify the resistance struggles of Palestinian and at the same time to justify their brutal attacks against Palestinians.

Recently Mrs. Clinton, US Secretary of State has presented a report regarding the situation of human rights in the world. While Zionists attacks millions of innocent people in Gaza and destroy houses, schools and mosques.

So people ask themselves how come Mrs. Clinton dose not see these crimes of Israel. These are so many who keep quite vis-à-vis all these brutal crimes.

Undoubtedly the issue of Palestine is the heritage of colonialism or the interest of imperialism. We should review this issue because it does not concern only to Palestine but it is the question of humanity which is in danger. Because we can see how Israel expanded its aggressions against Syria, Lebanon etc. Therefore we request the participants in this Conference to take initiative and request their governments to condemn the brutal massacre of the people of Gaza.

Mr. Chairman,

I would like to present here a suggestion: one of the provisions of the final resolution of this Conference should refer to this point that all the international organizations particularly UN should obliged all the states to adopt a resolution for condemning and punishing the Zionist crimes particularly the massacre which was committed by Israeli leaders in Gaza. So we should react seriously vis-à-vis all the war crimes committed in Gaza.

This issue is the clear ideology and belief of all the esteemed representatives of parliament being here in this Conference.

I firmly believe that now is the time to shift from talk to practice so that to create independent and free Palestine.

The people of Palestine resist and defend their values with all their power so that to establish free Palestine.

But what we can do as the representatives of the people is to support firmly all these struggles and resistances because there is no doubt that very soon we will achieve final victory.

For achieving free Palestine it should fight and resist. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to present my speech.*

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Eshaq Ovalous*

Deputy Head of house of the Representatives of Bolivia

 

Mr. president,

Distinguished participants,

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

At first I deem it necessary to thanks organizers of this Conference for holding this Conference at this sensitive time.

I would like to express sincere gratitude and greetings of revolutionary people of Bolivia and those of Mr. Morales esteemed president of Bolivia, and representatives of the parliament of Bolivia, to the honorable participants of this Conference.

Undoubtedly the Islamic Republic of Iran is the axes of unity, solidarity and integrity of the present world. Now that we are in the Islamic Republic of Iran we can feel this unity and solidarity. Because the people of Bolivia just like the people of Iran had faced lots of sufferings during the course of history. On the other hand both Iran and Bolivia had very bitter experiences regarding the greed of western industrial countries which were looking for acquisition and possession of our natural resources. Thus I deem it necessary to thanks the Islamic Republic of Iran, for all the efforts it made against racial discrimination and violation of human rights in the world in spite of US opponents and conspiracies.

Of course these efforts have been started in Bolivia too. For example recently the president of Bolivia expelled the ambassador of US at Bolivia because of intervention in Bolivia's affairs and for not making any effort for strengthening bilateral cooperation. Our question from US is why it should try to interfere with domestic affairs of Bolivia? Of Course there is no doubt this is the nature of Imperialism to plunder the natural resources of southern countries. That is why we joint our Iranian brothers and will tell them you are not alone.

I, on behalf of president of Bolivia and Latin America express the full fledged support of Bolivia from Iran, and assure our Iranian friends that your Bolivian sisters and brothers shall continue their justice-seeking struggles just like you. It is true that this move shall bring certain criticism inside country.

But I deem it necessary to tell you that we are trying to implement new plan and constitution for the people of Bolivia as the noble owners of this country. The fundamental consequence of implementing this plan is to abolish all forms of racial discrimination in Bolivia.

The Bolivian state administration believes in creating strong and developed country. We strongly believe to respect human rights and justice and we are not optimist about wars.

We do not agree with the brutal acts of Zionists and massacre of women, children and youths. We consider these attitudes a kind of domination over other countries and we strongly condemn these acts. This attitude belongs to US and its allies. We believe that for releasing Palestine or any other oppressed country either in Latin America or outside it, we should be united. If we want to decrease the sufferings of the oppressed people of the world and create peace and justice, we should be united vis-à-vis US and its allies.

Thank you distinguished scholars and intellectuals for hearing my speech. *

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Dr. Jebreil Amin ,*

Deputy Head of the Parliament of Nigeria,

 

In the Name of God’ the Almighty

Asalamo Aleykom Va Rahmatollah Va Barakato

Mr. Chairman, 

Excellencies,

It is so great pleasure to address this great conference I bring you greetings of our National Assembly as well as your brothers and sisters in Nigeria. I congratulate the Islamic Republic of Iran for organizing the present conference concerning situation in Gaza and support for many just causes in many parts of the world especially in the middle- East. Allah will protect the Iranian leadership and the people of Iran in supporting the Palestine and its civilization. The Palestinian and Israel conflict, the kind of situation that will favor the permanent rhetoric of world must now move on to reach a solution not in form of those who wish to continue occupation while time is going on talk about talks. We must also consolidate our moral victories and more from there to physical measures for transpiring the desired events and building of a new Palestine with people from all sects and groups. We shall promote Palestinian reconciliation and cooperation. In our efforts of helping the people of Palestine it is difficult for many countries in the world to understand the current crisis among the Palestinians themselves so it is on all of us to try and to try. We shall move towards the same goal and not allow taking place of the destructive incidents. The role of the major powers in the Palestinian conflict has proved decisively dangerous. Particularly the role of the USA which has inconsistent support for Israel at the expense of every body else. The support which can not be explained the USA domestic problems. The Palestinian people have become victims of American domestic policies the Israeli lobby has always shadowed the policies of the USA towards Palestinian issue. To this we shall add the commitments of the USA regarding the policy of returned of Jews to the holy land. It is why Israel enjoys support of the USA in occupying further land of Palestinians. But these have been instances that the USA was able to compel Israel to respect humanitarian rights. And I think now we are witnessing one of these occupying. It is important that the USA is seeking a resolution to the Palestinian problem. The American people are good people but they are not well informed about outside world. The new obama administration is an opportunity for fresh talks. It must be hoped that our security and our awareness to be included to our faith for approach to the Palestinian issue. The Palestinian problem is not an Arab problem. It is the world problem. But Palestinian is Arabs and lives in the Arab world. Therefore Arab countries shall do their best to promote the Palestinian cause. The problem can not be solved lonely. If Arab use oil effectively like in the wake of the Ramadan war in 1977 then it would have its positive impacts. There is also need for this conference to promote anti terrorism campaign in the world .Of course the definition of the world of terrorism shall become clear and transparent.  The problem of Palestine is like other problems which shall be attended, past cold war, apartheid, African organization and etc. and we all shall witness Palestine-Israeli problem resolved next.

We can not allow any Palestinian people die in the hand of Israeli leaders through their policies. We shall open all required means and ways for reaching a resolution.

Iran can not be left alone. We have the power to support Palestinian by every means. The Arab nations the Muslim world and the third world may unit and organize required ways to solve this problem are for all. But the USA and Europe shall stand in the right side of justice. Right now I am afraid they are not. The Muslim world shall declare one day that what Israeli doing in Palestine is the holocaust. We shall bring also all criminals of the crimes committed in Palestine to justice. Finally I express deepest appreciation to the Islamic Republic of Iran, the generous country which is following the right path in this respect.*

 

 

 

Speech presented by His Excellency Ebad Rechi'yam *

Deputy Head of the Parliament of Senegal

 

In the Name of God, the compassionate, the Merciful

It is an honor for me that as representative of Senegal to present my speech in this very magnificent ceremony. Also I would like to express my gratitude to His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran and to His Excellency Mr. Ahmadinejad, Esteemed president of Iran and His Excellency Mr. Larijani, Esteemed head of the Islamic consultative Assembly.

The Islamic Republic of Iran by holding this Conference indicates that more than any other time it is ready to protect the dignity of Islam and to defend peace and interests of others. As you are all aware the Senegal during its 30 years of terms of office as head of U.N permanent committee, has always supported the legitimate rights of the people of Palestine. Senegal has always maintained very strong bilateral relations with Palestine and has always help displaced Palestinians to return to their home and motherland. Since beginning of conflict in Gaza Mr. Abdullah Vad from Senegal as the periodical head of O.I.C (Organization of the Islamic Conference) tried to hold session of permanent committee in New York and requested ambassadors of the Islamic countries to take every measure to establish immediate ceasefire and find a solution for defenseless people of Palestine.

He also takes certain measures in the certain Islamic countries such as Iran, Qatar, Kuwait and Egypt in order to establish immediate ceasefire, and bring stability in Gaza.

Even the people of Senegal started to take certain measures in this regard. Here I refer to the activities of professors and students of the Abdul Diof University in Dakar in arranging great demonstrations in Dakar and also other demonstrations of different parties in Senegal and coordinating the activities of the Muslims in Senegal in the different mosques of Senegal.

I believe that these kinds of activities in different Islamic countries indicate solidarity with the people of Palestine and support for the oppressed people of Gaza, who are under aggressions of Zionist regime for more than 60 years. Today people are worried about atrocities in Gaza and thus only through unity and solidarity and by depending on the God Almighty we can stop these atrocities.

So in the Name of the state of Senegal and parliament of Senegal I would like to express my gratitude to the government of Islamic Republic of Iran for holding this great Conference, so that we get the opportunity to give our multilateral support to the people of Palestine, and to prevent the issuance of illogical resolution and take real action in order to establish independent democratic government in Palestine. We should introduce the criminals to a merited court for punishment. The human dignity has been violated in Palestine, and there are organized crimes in Gaza. So those who are responsible for these crimes should be sending to competent court. We should not relay only on resolutions because at present the Palestinians are dying under Israeli bombs. I think when there are attacks against Ambulances, children and aged people, then there is no time to think again, and we should take immediate actions. Of course holding seminars and conferences in this regard can be further reemphasized. So just like the rest of Islamic Ummah, the members of the Parliament of Senegal deem it necessary to take immediate actions for liberating the oppressed people of Gaza. Thank you*

Esteemed head of Conference, *

Distinguished Heads of Parliaments,

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Asalamo Alaikom va Rahmatollah va Barakato

At first, I would like to extend my gratitude to the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran for holding this conference and the warm hospitality extended to us. Also I would like to thank the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran for all the efforts made for solidarity and unity of Islamic Ummah particularly oppressed people of Palestine and Gaza Strip.

Mr. President,

Distinguished Audience,

We, people of Somalia express our sympathy with our Palestinian brothers and our brother Mr. Omar Albashir, President of Sudan who has made great efforts for unity and solidarity and independence of the country. Also we request to adopt all necessary efforts to stop the criminal acts of Zionist Regime against oppressed people of Palestine and granting financial aid to fulfill fundamental needs of Palestinians. But all of you know that if we do not adopt united firm position against enemy nothing can be done because our enemy usually has proved already that it does not respect the regional and international resolutions.

 

Mr. President,

Loyal Brothers,

Here I avail myself of this opportunity to raise a question: "why the Arab and Islamic world are forgetting the issue of Somalia? Why the Islamic Ummah does not pay attention to the sufferings of the people of Somalia? Why they do not pay attention to the challenges of this nation and altitudes of their enemy who wants to destroy the infrastructure of this country and make disunion among people?

For your information I should say that today Somalia's situation is getting better since last February when in brother country of Djibouti the government of national unity was establish of course with the help of regional and international community with Mr. Sheriff Sheikh Ahmad as a head, and now is working hard to strengthen the elements of sovereignty and unity, the government in which most of the opposition groups are present. On this basis we request you all to support this national government which is symbol of national conciliation and hope, stability and security in Somalia. Also we would like to request you to help our country for reconstruction and creating job-opportunities for youths. Please try to grand financial and spiritual aid to our country in order our country be able to serve its people, and be able to fill the present gap of disputes between ourselves and foreign parties.

The God, Almighty May Grant you Victory, Prosperity and Glory.*

 

 

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Mr. Arabi Avad *

Esteemed Secretary General of the

Communist Revolutionary party of Palestine

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

This conference is being held at the time when we had already faced a very important event. The brutal attacks of Zionist regime against Gaza strip with the aim to destroy resistance and Palestine was defeated with the heroic epic of resistance of Palestinian fighters in Gaza strip. The situation of the world has two different characteristics before and after war in Gaza. After this war the people of Palestine in different regions of Gaza, West Bank, occupied lands of 1948 and even in refugees camps in abroad, were all united together and gave their support to resistance and national principles. All these supports and solidarities were manifested during the demonstrations held in West Bank, occupied territories of 1948, and refugees’ camps which were established outside Palestine. Therefore we can say that this war institutionalize the solidarity of the people and their support for resistance.

The people of Palestine once again in the framework of all these demonstrations condemned any kind of conciliation. The conciliation which was gained through signing of Paris agreement, and was fully depended to the economy of Zionist Regime to the extent that the currency of the people of this area had to change to Zionist currency. According this conciliation there would be no sovereignty and independence for self-governing administration. So all these humiliation and disgrace paved the ground further for national unity and solidarity of Palestine. So after commitment of recent crimes in Gaza strip buy the Zionist occupiers, the process of discourses between Palestinian groups started in Egypt under the titles such as conciliation, broad based talks and national unity in Palestine. The success of any kind of dialogue for realization of national unity depends on two main factors: firstly the negotiations and dialogues should be broad based and include all Palestinian groups and secondly the negotiations should rely on national causes and legitimate rights of the people of Palestine. Also the realization of national unity under the shadow of the reconstruction of Palestine Liberation Organization should depend on the national charter of Palestine.

But at the level of the world of Islam, this war resulted to the demonstrations of millions of Muslims from all over the world and all of them together call for the victory of resistance. All the Muslims of the world knew that the main reason for emergence of eternal disputes and conflicts were as a result of reconciliation. Thus on this basis they condemned it. Another epic of this war was unity and solidarity among Islamic Ummah. The Muslims attack Imperialist conspiracies particularly the conspiracies of U.S and Zionist regime which led to religious, ethnic and racial differences among Arab, Islamic and extremist groups.

The unity of Islamic Ummah led to destruction of the conspiracies of enemies for creating differences and distances between Arabs and Islamic Republic of Iran. The war of Gaza revealed many realities of Zionist community. Before this war there was this believe that there are extremists and moderate groups among Zionists. But the recent election's result in Israel indicated that all Zionists are interested to commit crimes and to create Jewish settlements and try for judaization of Al-Qods. Today all of us can see that Mr. Lieberman has came to power in Israel, who is very interested to attack Tehran and Isfahan. He is the one who is against Arabs particularly Egypt. Because he knows that Egypt will never accept conciliation. The uprising of the people after Gaza war had great effect on the people of Palestine. Following this war all the Arab and Islamic countries started to support Palestine and all these support indicate that Palestine issue is not only related to Palestine but it is the issue of the world of Islam. The people of Palestine resisted for 3 weeks. Millions of Muslims supported resistance and this factor led to further strengthening of Palestinians. The uprising of the people of the world in support of Palestinians was a good slap in the face of those who wanted to destroy Palestine.

The global solidarity started from Japan in eastern part of the world and then in United States in western part of the world, proved that people of the world support Palestine and active Palestinian groups. Today many of institutes and movement particularly those which are active in Europe ask for trail of the leaders of Zionist regime as war criminals. They have taken steps in order to establish a legal organization for materialization of this fact.

I would like to suggest that in order to appreciate the political gesture of Mr. Chavez for dismissal of Israel ambassador from Caracas and also the gesture of Mr. Morales president of Bolivia for cutting off its political relations with Israel, we should hold the next conference in Caracas, capital of Venezuela. Some of the Arab states which have still political relations with Israel should take lesson from this two Latin American countries.

At the end I would like to congratulate Islamic Republic of Iran on the occasion of 30th anniversary of the victory of the revolution and also express our gratitude for holding this conference. The late Imam Khomeini, the great leader and founder of the Islamic revolution, from the very beginning declared that Israel is a cancer tumor that should be destroyed. Also the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran during his speech referred many times to the importance of Al-Qods as the most important place for starting war against the acts and crimes committed by Zionists in Al-Aqsa, Al-Qods and other Islamic places. So once again I appreciate the valuable speech of His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei and also the position adopted by His Excellency Dr. Mahmmoud Amadinejad, Esteemed president of Islamic Republic of Iran during UN General Assembly on the occasion of 60th anniversary of Palestine tragic event.

During his speech in General Assembly, Mr. President emphasized on this point that Zionist regime is on the threshold of destruction and as long as this regime exist in the region, there will be no peace and tranquility. Thus we would like to further strengthen the relations and cooperation among Palestine, Arab states and Islamic Republic of Iran.*

 

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Mr. Mozami Yosuf *

Head of Delegation of the Representatives of the Parliament of Indonesia

 

Salamu Alaykum Va rahmatullah va barakatuh

Excellencies, Delegates, Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is a great honor for me to attend this Conference. As we are aware Israel's attack against Palestinian people has cost thousands of live and destruction of more than 1300 people mostly civilians, who have been killed through the brutal attacks by Israel in Gaza.

More than 5000 others have been injured, displaced and faced with the probability of humanitarian crisis.

This is a matter of great importance for us, for the sake of humanity and human rights. Governments, parliaments and those who are affecting power structure had called for sustainable peace and for the region to come to the negotiating table and that's partly because of this matter that we concentrate on this important issue and to join forces to resolve the problems.

Ladies and Gentlemen

Citizens across the globe have condemned Israel's brutal and inhuman acts. The Muslim Ummah and all nations must be given respect so as to have peace and human rights.

With the contribution of inter parliamentary union or (IPU) and executive committee of IPU we intend to establish and dispatch a fact-finding commission to the Gaza strip. The commission would be mandated with the task of monitoring the implementation of the ceasefire and the flow of humanitarian aid into Gaza and assisting the Palestinian members of Parliament as well as observing civil rights of citizens.

Apart from that, Indonesia has also urged the IPU to approach governments to profile the cases of human rights violation in Gaza and to help obtain the release any poisoned Palestinian parliamentarians.

We have also urged the U.N Secretary General to investigate any violence against the Palestinian people.

Ladies and Gentlemen, from the very beginning Indonesia was in favor of the idea of Palestine for Palestinians and also in the framework of Asian parliamentary Assembly the speaker of Indonesia's house of representatives together with speakers of Islamic consultative Assembly of Islamic Republic of Iran and Syrian Parliament met with several Arab leader's in order to find a solution for the crisis in Gaza. Indonesia also took part in supporting the struggle of Palestine against Israel by holding different events.

We will continue to pursue the cause through diplomatic efforts at various diplomatic levels and organizations.

Ladies and Gentlemen

People in Gaza need our strong commitment and support to help them through these times therefore through this timely event, we would like to congratulate all delegates who participate in this conference which will unify our efforts to voice the Palestinian cause.

Thank you very much.*

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Mr. Abdul-karim Alhaj

Head of Delegation of Parliament's Representatives of Malaysia

 

In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful

The issue of Palestine is an issue of all the believers. Palestine is not only the issue of Palestinians or Arabs but also is the question of every God-believer human being and followers of the religion of Islam. Such a person, any where in the world, considers Palestine as his own country, because Palestine is the land of divine prophets and believing to these sanctities are in fact main pillars of the faith. First Quibble of Muslims is located in Palestine and the ascension of prophet (P.B.U.H) occurred in this holy land. Masjid Al-Aqsa which its surroundings has been sanctified by the Almighty in Holy Qoran, is located in Palestine, a Mosque that is based on religious teachings of Islam and it has been advised to visit it after masjid Al-Haram and Masjid Al-Nabi.

This holly place has captured a special place in hearts of all Muslims. The Palestine is a question of every person who has got a clear human nature and hates the crimes happening in Gaza. All human beings are members of an organism, who share the same nature. When there is a pain in one of the members, the other members suffer too.

All conspiracies of colonialist powers in making geographical, political, religious and national divisions among Muslims had faced with failure, whether these plotters exist inside Islamic countries or else where. Today, all efforts to marginalize the question of Palestine and to exclude it from the vocal attentions of Muslims have led to nothing.

Gaza Holocaust and resistance and Intifada in Palestine and Lebanon all are reminders of Ahzab story in the Holly Qoran. We all know about the story of alive divine miracle in Qoran. Zionist regime, arrogant powers and compromising and hypocrite governments are contemporary parties and the believers in front of them, face with a hard trial. Believers, hypocrites, ill-whished people and the advocates of right will be differentiated from each other.

If the resistance was non-religious in a way that religion didn't interfere in programs and policies of resistance, or had no place in the ideology of resistance, the Holocaust and mass killings would never have happened. Only because Palestinians believes to God Almighty, Zionist committed such crimes. Horrific crimes in Gaza draw the lines of believers and infidels. Those who enjoyed even a little faith and conscience in their hearts demonstrated in support of oppressed people of Gaza, all over the globe and condemned the crimes committed by occupying forces.

This great uprising of nations changed the policies and stances of so many governments, except those of reactionary and brutal governments. Zionist regime's mass media failed in justification of the crimes committed by this regime and only ignorant and idiots have been deceived by the propaganda of the occupying forces.

Malaysia's Assembly of representatives held a meeting to discuss the Holocaust of Gaza, and in that meeting, all representatives of political parties including both Muslims and non-Muslims, as well as proponents and opponents of the current administration, while condemning Israeli crimes in Gaza, called for trial of Zionist regimes war criminals. Malaysian political parties also asked for countries and governments all around the world to take part in international seminars and conferences in order to materialize the important mission of trial of Zionist leaders. Of course we know that the world arrogant powers will try to make obstacles and block in their way.

Muslims are aware of the fact that the creation of the puppet regime of Israel, its expansionist policy and supporting its security, is based on a pre-planned conspiracy. Even the regime's road map of future policies had been pre-scheduled and formulated from "A" to "B" finally, Israel was created and based on its pre-planned program, and is still fulfilling its devolved duties and policies.

U.S.A, Britain, France and other allied countries, openly or covertly, grant all kinds of political, economic, media and military capabilities to Israel. These governments’ policies with regard to their interaction with Zionist regime, at the United Nations, Security Council, so-called peace conferences etc, are based on their pre-planned road map and are in line with supporting that regime and opposing justice-lovers and real advocates of rights of Palestinians.

So far, several wars have happened on the issue of Palestine. During these wars, Palestine always has faced with occupation and betrayal. The Islamic Ummah has repeatedly committed the same mistake, and deceived by manipulative resolutions on supporting Zionist entity. The issue of Palestine still remains unresolved, because all the offered solutions were not just. These solutions and resolutions have let Israel to be equipped with the latest and cutting-edge technology of mass destructive weapons, in pretext of defending its borders, and while taking the advantage of these weapons, Israel is denying international laws and regulations, and blocking the development of peaceful technologies by Arab and non-Arab countries of the region.

We are confident that current situation won't last so long and the resistance of the people of Gaza, which is the matter of honor and dignity to the Islamic Ummah, will change the trends to the benefit of this Ummah, even if it will take long. However the wrong and unjust is mighty and powerful, but the right and just are superior and will be the final winner.

A wrong and unjust country that was created by the interference and support of empty international laws and brutal conspiracies and international conferences while considers power as a substantial bench mark for justice and rights, won't last so long. It is the right and just that, finally will win, despite all plots of enemies compromising and betrayal states together with holding compromising conferences will never be able to destroy the rightful question of Palestine.

We believe that jihad is the only decisive response to the Zionist regime and its allies. Oppressors in everywhere are trying to oppress jihad and resistance both in its historic and cultural aspects. At historic aspect, the enemies are trying to abolish the names of all Mujahid and resistance figures, during the history of Palestine, and from cultural aspect they have resorted to cultural deception. At their domestic and international media, they have introduced resistance and pro-resistance states as a terrorist and axis of evil. They also change the training programs of Muslim countries in a way that the virtue and status of jihad and resistance, is forgotten and instead, ways of compromising and contact with the Zionist regime is highlighted.

We should not forget that we have powerful elements at hand to materialize our victory. One of these divine factors is the holy religion of Islam. We should be obliged to our religion Islam in order the Islamic Ummah to be honored and respected, and in case of marginalizing and ignorance of Islam this honor will be stained. Brotherhood and equality among world Muslims of the world are another factors and elements of the Islamic Ummah's strength.

As a matter of fact, the question of Palestine, recent Gaza Holocaust, and Zionist regime's atrocities against Lebanon, have all caused the Islamic Ummah to be unified in a way that regardless of their governments' stands the Muslims of the world have repeatedly gone into streets for demonstrations in support for the oppressed nations of Lebanon and Palestine. This indicates the vivid spirit of unity and faith among Muslims.

The steadfastness of nations, being backed by scholars, intellectuals, leaders and experts who are dispersed around the world, can remove all difficulties shortages and ugly implications stemming from ideological war and can build the boat of salvation by self-esteem, as the God Almighty promised it.

The Almighty and thoughtful God has granted variety of natural resources to Muslim country in a way that most of the fossil and other energy resources can be found in the Islamic world.

In the current situation of Islamic world, if there would be a smart and deliberated management, there will be no need to external world, any more. Furthermore, the Islamic world is also capable of meeting the needs of external world. We remember very well the initiative of the then king of Saudi Arabia king Faisal, in making use of decisive oil weapon which shocked the west as a supporter of Zionism.

Also, ex-prime minister of Turkey professor Najmeddin Erbakan, in an appropriate and timely action contributed to create Group-8 and based on that, he suggested to replace Islamic currency with American Dollar.

But the outcome was overthrowing of his government by Turkish army.

Nevertheless, we look forward for members of the Organization of Islamic Conference in order to get rid of the restrictions of intellectual, political, economic and military colonialism, so that, after leaving this phase behind, the OIC could be able to rebuild its solidarity and cooperation among its members about the grounds of crisis. At this face, the trust to the power of the OIC will be restored by its members, in line with cooperation, solidarity and creating unity as a principal program.

Current circumstances, has envisaged the weakness and fall of Zionist regime vis-à-vis the eyes of Islamic, Arab and free nations of the world. This miracle is the sign of Holy Qoran which says:

They will not fight against you in a body save in fortified towns or from behind walls; their fighting between them is severe, you may think them as one body, and their hearts are disunited; that is because they are a people who have no sense.

“Like those before them shortly; they tasted the evil result of their affair, and they shall have a painful punishment.” (59:14:15)

At the end, it is necessary to express my congratulations on behalf of my brothers who are active at Islamic school of thought in Malaysia and Palestinian brothers as well as my brothers at Islamic resistance of Lebanon "Hezbollah" who engaged to sacrifice themselves for the sake of God.

I would also like to convey my appreciations and thanks to the government and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran, for holding and arranging this Conference and for inviting Malaysian delegation.  Alhamdlellah rabbal Alamin vassalamo Alaykom va rahmatollaho va barakatuh.*

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Dr. kammal karamollah Oghlo *

Deputy Head of Sa`adat Party of Turkey

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Distinguished Delegates,

Mr. Chairman

I would like to convey Salam and greetings of the leader of Sa'adat Party and at the same time Professor of University Mr.Erbakan. He was invited to join this meeting. Unfortunately the invitation was recieved very late. So, although he wished to attend but he couldn't. But I am very pleased to be here with you. We feel the same sadness for Palestine. Dear brothers up to now almost everything has been put in front of you about Palestine. What is happening there? There are atrocities. People are massacred. A holocaust is cast upon Muslim people in Palestine and the world is just watching. We need to do something against the attack waged by Israel in Gaza. This occurs while some governments do nothing positive and even blame Hamas for attacking Israel. In Turkey in the Muslim world, the first meeting in this respect was organized by our party for the sufferings of millions of people. In Istanbul our party protested against the atrocities committed in Gaza. And just to make reference in the past, Mr. Erbakan has dedicated his life to the problem of Palestine. He has been in prison for that reason.

When he was in the Parliament with his organization in 1980 the Turkish Foreign Minister was abdicated because Turkey did not cut its relations with Israel for the atrocities taken place in Palestine. What he asked me to convey to you. Of course we can lament for the atrocities taken place and for 1300 people who were massacred. More than 6000 were injured and we know that Prime Minister Ordoghan scolded Prime Minister Perez.

But all these are temporary relief. We need to take solid steps for preventing Israel to commit these crimes. The Jewish Rabbi here cleared for us what we have been saying for many years. That Zionism is in fact a political movement but does not have any limits or boundaries. We have protesting in Israel in the last in fact 60 years. Our brothers in Palestine have waged a war against invasion for over 80 years.  What happened? They have extended their borders. They have opened new settlement areas just to kill the people of the world. They withdraw from an area and in replace occupy 30 areas. And we just protest. We organize meetings and we just think if we do this the problem is solved. But it is just growing day by day. This means we have to take certain steps that in the beginning solve some of the problems. We have to take also some permanent steps which will solve all the problems together. What can we do now? Can we only ask Israel to stop the atrocities as it has been done by the outside powers as well for so many times? Second can we ask Israel to withdraw from the settlement areas where they have occupied since 1948? And then we can perhaps ask the world to allow an independent State of Palestine.

I am especially making pressure on the viable situation of Palestine. I remember even when Arafat went to Oslo and made agreement; the agreement which could not be justified. Because the map could not be acceptable. You can not have a state in divided districts. When Palestinians wish to go to see their families or friends they have to go through Israeli check points. This is not practically possible and they are now accusing Hamas for not accepting such an offer. If they accept it they are mad because no one can accept some thing like that. It will humiliate Palestinians if they accept something like this. And the world is pressurizing that Hamas is not moving towards solution of the Palestinian crisis. How can we accept that? In Sharm-Al Sheikh there was a meeting and one and half Billion dollars were promised. I can guarantee that even one dollar of it will not go to Palestine. Because they openly said that Hamas will not be included in it. It means that Gaza also will not receive the money so to whom this money shall go. The real problem is that Gaza is a prison and by the extent the whole world is the open air prison by Zionism.

Whatever we do is controlled by the UN and other world organizations. This is unacceptable. They can go to Iraq or Afghanistan and we can not say anything but when it comes to the western countries the UN may take any decision. With respect to Sudan it is indicative of double standard policy. What do we want from a new world order? This has to be at top of our agenda. And through the world order westerns whose capitalist view has lost its place wish to extend their own interests. But in the desired world no double standard, no exploitation, no oppression shall exist and we shall stand against those who wish to stand against the people of Palestine. This support shall be top on our agenda. Otherwise 3 or 4 years later again we shall sit together again and cursing them for what they do to Palestinians. In this way the problem is not solved I know the time is finished. I hope I could complete the message of Professor Erbakan. At least I had the chance to convey massage of Professor Erbakan who as I told you before dedicated his life to the cause of Palestine. Thank you and I wish success for my brothers in Gaza and other parts of the world who have suffered the same atrocities. I thank again the Chairman who allowed me to present my message.

 Thank you. *

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Mr. Marques Gill Martinez Flours,

 Esteemed Head of Ecuador Parliamentarian Delegation *

 

Mr. Chairman,

At first I would like to express my gratitude for giving me this opportunity to be here in this conference. Also I am very please with the president of this great revolutionary country.

These kinds of personalities belong to freedom loving people of the world. It is an honor for me to be here in this country of old and historical civilizations. While the western barbarians lived in caves, here in this country they talk about God and theism and many books were written about human destiny. The great buildings were constructed in Takteh Jamshid and at that time they studied the solar system and route of stars. They even gave theories about 500 years back regarding living together on earth while western countries reached to this point after 300 years of study in science. These old sciences were never the tools for oppression or malevolence but rather they were the tools for finding the nature and truth of humanity and his loftiness and perfection. The perfect person is the one who search not to limit himself which according Islamic principle is considered as humanity based on mutual relations. That is why I say I am very please that I am here now and I am looking for more efforts which could make further connections between us in our struggles.

While the European lived in caves about 4,000 years back, the natives of America established their first city of "Karal" which had 10,000 populations, and the European cities were living in darkness and negligence. The Izoteks in America created their solar calendar. So we can see great progress which existed in the native culture of Ecuador (about 2000 years back).

In the constitution of Ecuador we gave great importance to the native culture and language of Ecuador.

Then the European as a result of relying on their military technology started to occupy our territories. The European barbarians started to impose their cruelties and violence through their advanced weapons. So colonialism and then Imperialism were imposed in our country and threaten our culture and civilization.

They started to destroy our culture from political and psychological points of view.

Then they started to burn our historical materials and books. Our native clergy men were killed. The great library of the city in which the laws and regulations of Inca civilization which existed at that time, was completely destroyed. This is exactly what is happening in Iraq and the US invaders have invaded and plundered the cultural heritage of this country. The US forces have destroyed the national library and historical cities of this country.

In Afghanistan the Imperialism tried to erase national and cultural civilization.

In fact we should say that the culture of Imperialism and capitalism is the culture of death. It is the culture which is the result and heritage of western humanism.

What is western humanism? It is Nagasaki and Hiroshima or humanism of millions of illegal immigrants of southern America who are living in Europe as slaves, or 30 million of Africans who were dispatched to America as slave, or humanism of 6 million Jews who were tortured in Europe and were put under pressure. Western humanism is the same thing that exists at present in Palestine.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

What is going on today in Palestine is the worst kind of terrorist act.

Once I was talking for one of my Palestinian friend living in Ecuador that one of the methods of resistance of Native Americans was taking care of the children of invaders.  The children of natives and invaders grow up together and were trained to love their country.

My Palestinian friend was surprised since he recalled that same history existed in Al-Qods since long time back.

That means Jews and Muslims children who lived at the same period were like brothers.

This tradition created deep and stable relations between Jews and Muslims, but as soon as European Imperialism entered Palestine and started invasion, the violence started.

Then the European started to search for Zionism. Since then the problems raised in this territory. The Palestinian struggles for defending their legitimate right of self-determination continued.

While the Charter of United Nations refer to respect these principles in chapter 1 and 5, and since that time various resolutions have been adopted in this regard. But most of these resolutions were not implemented as a result of Veto power of the United States.

It is said that Palestine issue should be solving on the basis of international laws but how? When law and international justice instead of defending oppressors create corruption and when international regulations are in the hands of Imperialism, then there is no other way except for the Palestinians defend their legitimate rights.

Palestinian became symbol of resistance vis-à-vis Imperialism, as people of Afghanistan who became symbol of resistance against Americans and people of Africa who became symbol of resistance against Apartheid and racial discrimination and the people of Cuba as symbol of resistance against U.S Imperialism and Simon Bolivar as symbol of resistance against Imperialism of Spain.

Thus we should support the symbol of resistance of Palestinians vis-à-vis Imperialism.

According what I have seen in Gaza, I emphasize that firstly we should help Palestinian children, since they are spiritual and physical victims of aggressions of imperialism.

At the end I would like to present the greetings and solidarity of the people of Ecuador to all of you justice – seeking people and also to the people of Palestine.

Also I would like to emphasize on support and solidarity of our president Mr. Rafael Korea as well as those of 20 thousands Palestinians who have taken refuge in our country. It is an honor for us to receive Palestinians and to perform our humanitarian duty.

Thank you. *

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Dr. Meraj Hoda Sediegh ,*

Deputy Head of Islamic Society of Pakistan,

Mr. Chairman,

Distinguished Celebrities, Scholars and Participants, Guests, Delegates and all those who stand for truth, freedom, justice and righteousness,

I congratulate Ayatollah Khamenei, Great Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mr. Ahmadinejad, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Dr. Ali Larijani’ Speaker of the Iranian Assembly for creating a historical Conference in support of Gaza people and Palestine.  On behalf of Jemaate Eslamiye Pakistan and Ghazi Monavar I support and advocate suggestions and the road map for the solution of Palestine problem presented by Ayatollah Khamenei. Before proceeding further let me salute to Hamas, its leadership and People of Gaza for resisting against Zionism for too long period. Since 2 years ago 1.5 million people have been living under very harsh conditions. So far 5000 targets including schools, hospitals and etc. have been hit and several hundreds of people have been killed by the prohibited weapons of Zionists including phosphorous bombs. The Zionists also are using prohibited explosives as well and Hamas showed that they are ready to accept Shahadat (martyrdom) but they are not ready to bow down against Israel. I congratulate them for their great victory. Hamas victory is the victory of peace loving people, their victory is the victory of all those who are striving for justice. And defeat of Israel is the defeat of imperialism, defeat of usurpers of all time. I say that Israeli invisibility and power have been destroyed by Hamas and the years 2006 to 2008 are highly valued by the Islamic Ummah. Hamas is the iron hand of the Muslim Ummah and I am sure that Inshallah Israel will not be able to reconstruct its infrastructures in the future. I'm sure that Inshallah we will embrace final victory.

My sisters and brothers, we, in OIC, have our own responsibility and we shall play our role. Unfortunately the Security Council has failed to meet its commitments for providing security for all under the US hegemony. We can see it in the case of Iran, Sudan, Afghanistan, and when we can see it has failed to bring the Zionist war criminals to justice because Israel is the child of the USA. On this occasion we also Appreciate Syria, Qatar, Hezbullah for making every effort in this respect. We are grateful to Venezuela, Mr. Hogo Chavez and last but not the least we shall admire all others worked in this respect for the humanitarian cause. It is time to help to reconstruction of Gaza. Regarding the peace road map I shall say all those who are neglecting Hamas are in fact neglecting peace. Therefore, firstly, we need to unify the Ummah as stipulated in the Mecca OIC Meeting Declaration. Secondly, all countries in OIC shall meet their commitments. Thirdly, all Muslim shall get together for resolution of the problems. Fourth, development in Islamic countries in the fields of research and technologies shall be promoted. Then we will be sure that all those who fight usurpers including in Iraq, Qatar, Afghanistan, and Kashmir and in many parts of the world will be victorious. The journey started by Imam Khomeini (RA) and Sheikh Hassan Allmollah and is proceeding now. Inshallah the US and its allies will be defeated very soon and the oppressed people Inshallah will succeed.

Thank you. *

 

 

 

Speech presented by her Excellency Mrs Sakorafa Sofia,

Representative of the National Parliament of Greek*

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I come from Greece and I always carry historical memories of my country in my mind.

A country which in the name of a different vision and in the name of historical and political development, was completely different from what the great western powers had envisaged, and thus it led to the painful process of a civil war, approximately fifty years ago.

For that reason, I would like to begin my speech with a parabolic and semiotics story.

A story inspired by Theodore Angelopoulos, a Greek filmmaker of global reputation.

His story is set in 1977, many years after the Greek civil war, when a group of hunters comes across the dead body of a civil war partisan lying in the thick snow.

Blood still comes from a fresh wound even though almost thirty years had passed.

The hunters, who are all members of the political and financial authorities, carry the body to their hotel, where they will spend a New Years Eve, which abounds with the ghosts of their historical conscience and the fear of a past which they thought had been/ settled for good.

In front of a large History Court, which is set in the hotel lobby, their testimonies turn into a dramatic nightmare of their collective conscience?

Towards the end of the film, the partisan comes back to life in the imagination of the terrified hunters, turns into a sort of an avenger of the revolution and the members of the authorities are executed. As soon as those people wake up and return to reality they decide to bury the partisan's body again by throwing a lot of snow on it until the landscape goes back to its initial whiteness, a convenient color to them.

It is about the body of that particular partisan that I would like to talk to you today, the body of the contemporary partisan, as the Palestinian resistance could be characterized.

And also, about the plan of the contemporary great western powers who would like to bury this "body", as if it had never existed.

They want to bury it because it is bothering them.

And it is bothering them because it's "a thorn in their side" in a world which they have been attempting to bring to their own measures in order to control it completely. A world, which they have been trying to put into their own mould, to interpret according to their own values and to re-route on the basis of their own interests.

The Palestinian Resistance is not an issue of today, it has always existed.

It is a sixty-year old history. It is an inheritance which Yasser Arafat bequeathed to his people.

It is an everyday story which the Palestine fighter creates. He knows how to defend not only his life but also his vote with the use of arms. It is a story created by the Palestinian martyr who knows that freedom means being liberated.

It is a story which has as a result both the consensus and the Palestinian fighter - the defender of Jenine, Gaza, and Bait Hanoun - who states that he cannot put down his weapon and his 60 bullets.

And this story is alive, continuous and demanding.

The western world believed that by demanding elections as a necessary prerequisite for the beginning of negotiations, they could control and blur the unbending commands of the Palestinian Resistance.

It was proved terribly wrong.

Hamas, the democratically elected government of Palestinian people, could not do otherwise but serve the history of the people who put them in power.

However, the United States and Europe who have based their entire political culture and civic democracy, on the right to vote and be voted, on the absolute recognition of the results which emerge from this right, did not like the outcome.

They did not like it, because, as it seems, democracy in this particular case is not what the people have democratically and freely legalized. Democracy is not the dominant volition of the election body, but what the western world "wishes" for them.

Therefore, democracy for the powers of the western world is what they would like and not what the Palestinian people decided.

And it is not the first time that we have seen this happen.

 The whole western world after Chavez referendum and his clear-cut victory shouted "Chavez is a dictator".

And nobody from the western centers of propaganda stated that Chavez simply won the right to claim a third presidential tenure in the elections of 2013, since the constitutional restriction of the maximum of two tenures was abolished.

If this is a testimony of dictatorial behavior, we should assume that Angela Merkel, Nicolas Sarkozy, Gordon Brown and many other leaders of countries with no such restriction are equally "tyrants".

However, Chavez is accused of being a tyrant for the same reason as Hamas is accused of being a terrorist.

Because the United States cannot tolerate Latin America, they cannot tolerate that in the sensitive area of Middle East powers emerge which question their authority; that there are ruling powers which serve the plans of their people and not those of the United States.

They cannot stand the fact that other powers with a plan of national resistance, different from that of the United States, are coming forth.

A vision different from that of the United States, a vision of an independent country.

A different strategic choice, one which is based on severance and conflict until they obtain the final target.

And on this basis, together with their partner, Israel, they are elaborating on a plan to overthrow Hamas.

Bush's plan, which was published and not disputed by the State Department, was explicit.

George Bush and Condoleezza Rice assigned the deputy consultant of National Security Elliot Abrahams, the task of the implementation of a secret plan for the instigation of a civil war in the occupied area.

With the purpose of overthrowing in a violent way the Hamas government.

However, both the Americans and the Israelis did not estimate correctly and the second part of the plan was implemented, namely the fatal embargo and deadly raids, hoping that they would bring the Gaza people to their knees. And here they missed their target again.

From there we passed to the third part of the plan, Israel put into force its most lethal invasion into the Gaza strip.

And of course, together with the ruthless pounding of Gaza it pounds away at the public opinion with political messages formed and taken from the artillery of Zionistic   propaganda, aiming to distort reality according to the Gebel's standards.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Even those who did not have the chance to be in Gaza during those 23 days, they are still able and obliged to go against this propaganda.

For me, the obligation is even stronger. It is an obligation which arises from my Palestinian citizenship, but at the same time it is my utmost duty which arises from the fact that I was there.

I have seen, known and feel obliged to disclose the lies of the propaganda, lies told and still being told by the official Israeli authorities as well as by well-known, impertinent mouthpieces all over the world.

And as Umberto Eco mentions "nobody will appear on the global stage to say: I want to re-open Auschwitz. Fascism will return disguised in the most innocent garments, it is our duty to reveal the" serpent's egg" and the innocent garments it wears.

An innocent garment of this fascist practice therefore has first of all been the pretext for this war: The self-defense of Israel.

From May 1948, when the Prime Minister David Ben Gurion announced the establishment of the state of Israel and the Israeli commandos in Palestine began the alleged "War of Independence", violently evicting over 750.000 Palestinians from their homeland, until today, they have destroyed infrastructures, killed, imprisoned, exiled, led to confinement and finally condemned to death the legal leader Arafat, annihilated and degraded whole populations.

They have stamped indelible numbers on the hands of fighters, demolished houses with their residents inside, and built the atrocious wall, used helicopters to soot anything that moved, operated concentration camps. They are conquerors and murderers characterized by a military tactic which reminds us or their former persecutors, the Nazis.

The story is therefore, explicit both concerning the dividing lines and the role of each 'party involved.

It is the Palestinian fighters who are self-defenders against an abhorrent war-machine which is the Israeli occupation army.

The second innocent garment of this war is the discontinuation of the truce by the Hamas.

We seem to forget that the "Cast Lead" according to Ehud Barrack's own words had been preparing for six months.

In addition, no-one denies the fact that until the end of October, Islam fighters had stopped firing rockets - even the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs acknowledges that.

The firings, however, restarted in November. And for a good reason: a detail which they often "forget" is that on 4 November 2008 the Israeli army conducted a mission which proved fatal for six fighters of the Palestinian resistance and to which the resistance responded in self-defense.

Another point which is deliberately not mentioned: the truce would mean the termination of the embargo on Gaza and the opening of its borders, a fact which Israel has never accepted.

Even worse: the embargo had almost been completely implemented during the last months to such a point that even before the attack, the four fifths of the population depended on the United Nations Aid.

Here again history is explicit and sets the dividing line.

Gaza was transformed into a ghetto on the pretext of truce, which Israel itself broke using summary procedures.

The third innocent garment of this operation is analogy. The rockets shot against the Israeli civilians were proportional to the attack of the Israeli army on the civilian of Gaza during the 23 days of war.

Here once again, reality sets the dividing line: from the withdrawal of Israel from Gaza until the outbreak of this war, the Qassam rockets killed eleven Israelis while the Israeli army killed 1.700 people. We should also add here the 1.300 victims of "Cast Lead" as well as the hundreds of amputated people most of whom are children.

The fourth garment of this slaughter is the observance of equal distances.

Since when has the conqueror been same as the defender?

Since when has the invader been same as the one who resists?

It is not us who discover the answer but history itself which cast the role of the criminal onto the Nazi occupation powers and the role of the resistant to the heroic people of Leningrad who fought for 870 days, to the heroic partisans in the mountains of my country, to the French partisans.

The fifth innocent garment of this slaughter is the protection of civilians. Israel impertinently claimed that they distributed flyers in order to announce bombings and to ask the people to leave the area.

Leave and go where? 1.500.000 people living on a tiny piece of land, isolated from the mainland and the sea.

Go to the U.N. shelters which were also hit?

Go the hospitals which were also hit? There is no answer, just like there was no answer to the holocaust of Kalavrita and Distomo caused by the nazist occupation army in my country.

And the last innocent garment of this lethal recipe is the incrimination of every criticism, every voice which denounces these crimes.

Here, I will cite Eco again "if the arguments of Hitler's political manifesto have survived, this is because they are based on a non-tolerance, which is wild and impermeable of any criticism.

These are the innocent garments of fascism. They are the same garments which generated the "necessity" for the atomic bombs in Nagasaki and Hiroshima, which bombed the Presidential Mansion in Chile, which imposed the blood-stained dictatorships in Latin America, which armed Attila in Cyprus, which locked, by mistake, human targets in Serbia, which campaign in order to set the "barbarian" Afghans free, which create the debt in the third world and condemn it to slow death and natural disasters, which shoot bullets at dead bodies in Falutza to set an example, who talk about bad Sadam and good war and shoulder the task of the "functionary", that is, the bomber of mankind.

And what does one observe on an international level against this crime of the corrupted officials of a state?

Silence!!!

The Security Council observes as a spectator the collective punishment of a whole people, the infamous special negotiator for the Middle East, Tony Blair is provocatively silent, and the European Union advises caution.

Is it insensitivity or callousness? No. They have all shown considerable zeal, sensitivity and compassion towards the struggle of the Chechens, the Tibetans and the Alban ­Kosovo.

It's about a complete submission of everybody to the politics of the USA, the politics of Israel.

On the other side the Arabic world is divided. After the active decades of the 50's and the 60's, the decades which showed the Arab world as a third power, as a distinct entity, today a large part of this world, a large number of those states have been organized on a different basis and prospect and have become USA tools.

The new regimes of a large part of the Arab world, most of them characterized by degeneration, are organized on the basis desired by the Western alliance, on the basis of the support of foreign interests.

On the other hand - and this is why I consider the initiative of this meeting taken by Iran so important - there is the same attitude of Iran and Hezbollah, the active support to the Palestinian resistance.

Which, however, is not the only one.

Because, one of the consequences of this war is the formation, especially in the Arab world, of a massive movement, which comes in conflict with its regimes, a movement with advanced political characteristics as far as the Palestinian issue is concerned.

This, in conjunction with the movement which was evolved throughout the whole planet and of course in conjunction with the consequences of this war, creates a new environment.

The consequences of the 23 days are explicit and easy to read.

First of all, this war, despite the innocent garments worn by Israel, became its turning point as far as its international image is concerned.

The international picture of Israel is synonymous to that of a terrorist.

On the other side, the Palestinian resistance not only did it not break, which was the critical issue of this war, but on the contrary, it came out strengthened and much more mature.

Right now, the demand for national reconciliation on the basis of resistance is universal. Therefore, we have a new environment.

An environment with new and dynamic parameters: the destruction of the Israel image, the strengthening of the Palestinian resistance, the maturing of the demand for unity on the basis of resistance. The creation of an important movement all over the world and last but not least we have a tsunami of popular rage and demonstrations in the Arab world, which cannot be compared to the siege of Beirut or the first or second Intifanta or the wars against Iraq and Lebanon.

In Jordan, the majority of MPs did a symbolic occupation of the Parliament and burnt the Israeli flag.

Even Qatar the secure anchorage of the Americans in the Persian Gulf, is now allying with Syria in support of the Palestinian resistance. And everything indicates that we are still at the beginning.

In the frame of this new environment, the western world is obliged to take a new stand.

And the most useful, the most necessary the most urgent stand concerns first of all the recognition of the democratically elected government of the Palestinian people, Hamas. And immediately after that the western world is obliged without conditions and reservations to accept at the table of negotiations the political organ which will represent the whole of the Palestinian resistance according to the standards of PLO.

And finally, it is the obligation of the western world to prove that the values for which it has struggled and for which millions of lives were lost during the World War II which it proudly brings out as the definition of justice and as a prerequisite for a fair peace treaty, will be in effect for this war as well. The Nuremberg Trials for the World War II crimes are continuous trials with a universal audience to judge any criminal, of any identity and any era. And this is the only possibility of catharsis for all the crimes of silent and, to a large extends, uninvolved Europe. But it is also the only starting-point for the liberation of the Israeli people from the burden of crimes committed by their state.

Since I am now in a country the characteristics of which differ completely from those of my country or from those of Europe, I would like to talk about the necessary approach between the western world and the Muslim World. This approach should be ruled by one basic principle. Not all worlds are the same.

The Muslim world is not a copy of the Western world; the Muslim societies are not similar to the Western societies nor are they in a social or time lag in comparison to them.

They are simply, different societies. This is the basic principle of the approach.

The second principle is the need to realize and understand that religion in the Muslim world is also a means of organizing the social life of the people, it is an ideological and social place, it has a social plan and view of the world.

And we are obliged to understand this because the most important game which is being played is that of the good western guy against the bad Muslim, that of the good western guy against the religious terrorists of Hamas.

And this game has been devised as the ideological counterbalance when the entire Palestinian resistance removed any argument of the western world by accepting the exact application of the United Nations and the Security Council decisions: Independent Palestinian state on the borders of 67 and Recognition of the Independent Israeli state.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

If the leaders of the western countries and of the Zionists are trying to implement plans for the burial of the body of the Palestinian resistance under the white dead landscape of history, we are all obliged to disturb this whiteness.

If the leaders of the western powers are trying to bury the body of the Palestinian resistance under the white dead landscape of history, in order to impose their own dominance, their own culture and serve their own interests, we are all obliged to resist both their imperialistic plans and the morbid leveling which they are seeking.

If the leaders of the western powers are aiming at the burial of the body of the Palestinian resistance under the white dead landscape of history, they must know that the scenario of the film played by universal history has a different end in store for them: conquerors all over the world who do not abandon their weapons are killed by the rebels or by those who have revolted.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The present juncture calls for the unreserved support of the Palestinian resistance, based however on the cohesion and undisturbed unity of the Palestinian people.

It is this need for the unity of the Palestinian people and its resistance that the whole Arab world is called to support clearly and dynamically in action. And the Arab world which has a long history and admirable culture is called to be up to the occasion and prove to be a competent operator of the demands of history.

Your country, in particular, with its significant presence nowadays, shoulders a great deal of this task.

Today, we need to make the best of these historical circumstances in order to serve a fair peace treaty, territorial integrity, national independence and respect for the individualities and the unique characteristics of each people.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I strongly believe that the personal attitude of each one of us can contribute decisively and tremendously to the formation of the necessary power which could take the world forward.

My presence in Gaza during this war, my decision in 2004 to participate in the Olympic Games in Greece under the flag of Palestine as well as my visits to President Arafat, was not just an expression of sympathy towards a suffering people; it was an expression of political stance and attitude.

The history of my country is one of continuing struggle for freedom and independence.

And all people who struggle and fight for a free country demand that all of us, who enjoy freedom and independence, regardless of our official position or status, always support them firmly and vigorously until their final victory.

Because this victory will not be their victory or our victory alone, it will be the victory of humankind itself!!! *

 

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Mr. Rabbi Kohien ,*

Head of Anti Zionist Delegation of Natari Korta

 

I pray to the Almighty that my words will be received through the present gatherings perfectly as possible.

Your Excellency, Speaker of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Assembly, I thank you very much for privilege offering to me to be able to speak this afternoon and this evening in this international conference for support of Palestine, Gaza. It is a great privilege to be here in the great Islamic Republic of Iran. Greetings to all of you I speak you under honor a group known as Natari korta; a group which propagates the orthodox Jewish opposition of Zionism. As every one knows Zionism is the philosophy and movement which brought into being the illegitimate state of Israel. In this gathering here today the conference is taking place in order to help alleviate to some degree the terrible and tragic sufferings of the Palestinian people, and in particular in connection with the current situation we have to understand that this trend has been going on for hundred of years. My message to you is that, it is very important message which we came here to protest against exile of Palestinians and support fighting against the wish of the Zionism. My message also is that the real Jewish religion values the humanitarian aspects. Let me explain Zionism has a benefit of establishment of a state for specific group of people under a fake name. And that definition is a sectarian and racist philosophy. Zionism has had from its foundation a total disregard for Palestinian hopes for self determination in the land of occupied Palestine for a century. Now this disregard has obviously led on to disregard for the livelihood, homes and sadly for the lives of Palestinians. So Zionism by the very definition is contravention force if necessary as we obviously see over if necessary by force any opposition. So Zionism is wrong morally and it is also wrong logically. Why do I say logically? From its inception it was found to reduce its confrontation right from the beginning. And that confrontation has been the constant cause of bloodshed, death, and destruction for Arabs and also for Jews. You Know the Zionists claim that they kill for creating a safe heaven for Jews.

But it is not certainly a safe heaven for the Jews which the Zionists' claim. Now Jews can not find any safe place in the world. But the main problem is the humanitarian aspect of the issue. How it totally oppressed the Palestinians. And this has been the fact from the very beginning until the present for 100 years.

I want to bring out this afternoon the point that the Zionists do not represent the Jewish people. Though they claim they are representing the Jewish people. But this is not so. It is not. And we shall understand that anti- Zionism is not anti- Semitism. One of weapons of the Zionism in world is that its followers say if you oppose us in the world we would label you as an anti- Semitism.

But I shall reiterate that Zionism and Jews are two different things. And anti Zionism is certainly not anti Semitism. But the Zionism is the cause of anti Semitism in the world. In the incidents taken place in Gaza, the charges and accusations which each side of the conflict labels are really irrelevant. If you want to stop the violence you should seek the root causes. The majority of international observer aim to find the basic reasons and roots of the conflict and that is Zionism. There is no doubt that it is the very existence of the illegitimate Zionist State in the Middle-East which is underlying the reason of the conflict and there will be no peace unless and until this reason disappears. This illegitimate state must come to its end. The fact for this is on the ground. The injustice can be reversed but justice no. we pray for the peaceful dismantling of the Zionist state totally and speedily and its replacement with a just regime in which Arabs and Jews can live together peacefully as they did for centuries before hand. As the world knows the Muslim lands were occupied by Zionists. So once again I pray to the Almighty this will take place with the aspiration of the Palestinian people. And may be then when the glorious Almighty will reveal itself in the whole universe there will be sustainable peace among all mankind.

Thank you very much.*

 

 

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Mr. Zafarul-Islam Khan

Head of Advisory Council of Muslims in India

 

New Realities in the Middle East show it is possible to defeat and contain the Zionist project in Palestine *

Israel is a de facto, not a de jure, entity, league of Nations' "Mandate" of Britain to turn Palestine into a Jewish homeland was as baseless in law and morality as was its successor, the United Nations' partition plan although the UN charter does not give that body any such right to divide countries and create new ones. Even that dubious partition plan as later suspended and a high level UN representative (Count Bernadette) was dispatched to Palestine to try to find an amicable solution but he was murdered in daylight by Jewish terrorists in Jerusalem on September 17, 1948. Thereafter the UN abandoned its efforts to find an amicable and just solution to the Palestinian problem. Hence the Jewish state which appeared on 15 May 1948 after forcefully expelling the majority of the rightful inhabitants of the country and what was accepted by its neighbors as a result of the Armistice agreements in April 1949 was a de facto reality. Israel is the only state in the world which even to this day does not define its borders in its constitution because it believes in continuous expansion of its borders at the expense of the Palestinians and its neighbors. Israel was accepted as a member of the United Nations after giving solemn pledges to the world body that it will allow the Palestinian refugees to return to their homes, farms and orchards but this solemn pledge remains totally unfulfilled to this day while Jews from any part of the world are offered automatic citizenship of Israel by the virtue of its Law of Return of 1950. Even Palestinians living inside the pre-1967 borders of Israel do not enjoy full citizenship rights as they cannot buy Jewish lands and are continuously under threat of expulsion by Jewish politicians who do not tire from reiterating that Israel is a Jewish state and must remain so. Arab homes inside Israel are demolished at will and their lands are confiscated as a routine.

With the exception of the October 1973 Ramadan War which was started by Egypt and Syria to liberate their lands occupied by the Zionist state since 1967, Israel has started every single war in the Middle East in order to expand at the expense of its neighbors. With blind American and western military and economic support, Israel has won every war against regular armies while it has lost its wars against popular movements as seen in May 2000 and again in June-July 2006 when it failed to defeat Hizbullah despite continuing its aggression for 32 long days. It has again failed to defeat Hamas in Gaza Strip a vicious onslaught using every possible armament for 22 days against an unarmed, impoverished and exposed population. Both Hizbullah and Hamas are the only movements which forced Israel to withdraw from South Lebanon and Gaza Strip respectively in 2000 and 2005.

Here is a clear lesson for us that the extraordinary Zionist settler-colonial project in Palestine can be pushed back and defeated by popular movements using unconventional resistance tactics and not by under-armed regular armies whose governments are subject to region and international pressures.

Israel has been able to continue its occupation, oppression and expansion as a result of the vicious exploitation of the Nazi Holocaust and the cultivated image of a small country surrounded by powerful enemies. Today, this image lies shattered and the world is increasingly questioning the Israeli expansionist and colonial policies and there is a question mark over the legitimacy of the Zionist project at the expense of the Palestinians. There was an extraordinary show of support to the people of Gaza around the world as people realized the reality of Israel and its colonial and ruthless policies as a western proxy.

Today there is a clear realization all over the world that the Palestinian are fighting a just war against an occupying power and that this is a legitimate resistance which is a sacred right of all occupied people. This right is enshrined in The Hague Agreements of 1899 and 1907, the Geneva Protocols of 1925, the International Human Rights Declaration of 1948, UN General Assembly resolution No. 1514 of 1960 and Article 51 of the UN charter.

Today the world is also revising its policies towards Hamas. The main resistance force in Palestine. Many countries and international organizations have started contacts and negotiations with Hams, directly or indirectly, because it has proved to be a popular and responsible resistance movement.

Whatever international support and acceptance Israel has beyond western capitals is due to the Oslo Accords by which Israel was able to show to the world that it has made peace with its victims and has solved the Palestinian problem while in reality Israel has only created two Bantustans in Palestine on the South Africa apartheid model. While the Palestinian Authority areas in the West Bank have 560 Israeli army checkpoints today and witness an ever-increasing Jewish settlement activity, Gaza Strip remains under strict and almost total economic and humanitarian blockade since early 2006 when Hamas won a clear victory in democratic elections. In effect, the lot of the areas known as the Palestinian Authority is worse than the South Africa Bantustans but the PA authorities do have the guts and courage to say so publicly and tell the whole world that the whole idea of the Oslo Accords has collapsed and failed due to the Israeli insincerity and that a new and serious beginning should be made to solve the Palestinian problem.

Israel should be taken to the World Court and other courts wherever possible and tried for its war crimes committed in Gaza Strip where a totally unnecessary and one-sided war was waged on an unarmed and impoverished civilian population which has been resistance against occupation and unjust blockade. This is a God-sent opportunity to all peace-and justice-loving people to punish Israel for its crimes and force it to become an ordinary state in the region forsaking its hegemonic dreams of ruling over the whole Middle East and acting as a western policeman in the area. A megalomaniac Israel has itself presented this golden opportunity and our failure to use it to punish the Zionist war criminals and bring the Zionist state back to its senses will be tantamount to wasting away a great opportunity. Already, Israel is feeling the heat. A committee has been formed in Israel to tackle this very likely eventuality and Israeli army officers and political leaders who had a role in the Gaza war crimes are being advised by the Israeli government to skip certain capitals where they may be arrested and tried for their war crimes.

As Oslo Accords are long dead and there is no hope that any other "two-state solution" based on the ideas of the Quarter or other regional or international forces will ever succeed due to the refusal of Israel to give away fruits of its past aggression and its current supremacy over all of Palestine trampling over the rights of the Palestinians, ignoring hundreds of UN resolutions, trashing Oslo accords signed by its own officials. The time has come for the project of the two-state solution to be trashed. The time has come to revive the original plan of a single democratic state in Palestine where both Jews and Arabs would enjoy equal political and democratic rights. This is the only solution to solve the problem of the Palestinian refugees, the illegal Jewish settlements on stolen lands and the illegal immigrants flooding Israel who are most vocal to expel the original inhabitants from their own historical homeland. This practical, just and humanitarian solution will also contain the current Israeli expansionist and threatening entity which has become a threat and danger to the peace and stability of the whole region. The Middle East will have no security until Palestine be free from Zionists and their judaization policy.*

 

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Dr. Kamal Halbavi *

Head of the Islamic solidarity Association of England

 

In the name of Allah, the compassionate, the merciful

I give my presentation on behalf of the Islamic solidarity Association which has been establish in England with the aim of creating unity and solidarity among Islamic Ummah. At the beginning I would like to thanks Islamic Republic of Iran and Islamic consultative Assembly and head of this Conference and all of you distinguished participants for participating in this conference.

As my brother Ahmad Jebriel said England is dangerous country which has both the poison and sweets. Till now England was the center for all the conspiracies and there have been some signs of victory too. In England millions of people demonstrated in support of the people of Palestine. So we start from England with the Name of the God Almighty and from this country we give back dignity and honor to the Muslims and Arabs.

The other important point is that I have participated in various conferences and usually I had seen that after end of each conference all the decisions would be forgotten. I hope this Conference will not be as such, and be able to rise against present world system and present a new global system. Of course realization of this issue is very important as The God said in holy Qoran:

“And we desired to bestow a favor upon those who were deemed weak in the land, and to make them the Imams, and to make them the heirs” (28:5)

But the third point is that sometimes we lose the hope, but the present realities show something else. During the years of signing Camp David pact, the Islamic revolution took place in Iran. When former Soviet Union attacked Afghanistan, the Islamic Jihad expanded every where, and as a result of resistance and jihad, Afghanistan and Central Asian countries such as Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and other neighboring countries became free. In the year 2006 in Lebanon, some Arab people believed that missile attacks of resistance groups in Gaza were useless. The question is if these attacks were useless why Zionist regime and certain Arab states were worried about these attacks and complain about them. I should tell you my dear brothers that we are facing with many challenges. Some of these challenges have been solved and some are left. One of the challenges which have been solved (of course I consider great respect for communist party and communist) is Soviet Union. But the challenge which exists in today's world is United States of America. One question will remain still and that is why the US forces after death of Sad am Hussein are still in Persian Golf? The reality is that US forces are in the region for performing another mission. We should be brave and powerful and fight for achieving independence. We should make effort not only for freedom of Palestine but for the freedom of all Arab and Islamic Ummah.

Another point is with regard to importations. I consider great respect for hand-made missiles. This is first step for releasing from dependency to west. These hand-made missiles which are very small and at present could only aim small towns, in near future will aim all the aggressors of the world of Islam. Realization of this achievement is in fact independency and not depending on western importations.

Another achievement that today the world is talking about it is the opening of Atomic station of Iran in Bosheher. This is unique event because it indicates that the Islamic Ummah can be independence and not be depended to west. Today Iranians prove to act according this verse of holy Qoran:

“Glory be to Him Who made this subservient to us and we were not able to do it” (43:13)

The Americans are mistaking. They have occupied our countries. So we by restoring to force should throw away the occupiers from their own lands and from their own minds. I felt bad when I hear the speech of mr. Shikh Sebghatollah Mojadedi. Once Mojededi was head of Afghanistan. So I was very sorry to hear that he said the existence of US in Afghanistan is necessary. My question is why should US stay in Afghanistan? Why US forces should attack our country and destroy our houses and make us displace? So under the pretext of supporting us they shall plunder our wealth and resources and do not consider our selected governments serious. So I call you Muslims and Arabs where are we? Today the Islamic Ummah shall be released from under development.

This Ummah needs to be free from western importations. Today the Muslims more than any other time need to confront with world Zionism. The Islamic Ummah should demonstrate and uprising against United States forces in Persian Golf and other occupied lands.

Today the world of Islam should have production. I suggest this Conference to determine and stipulate the pillars of new world system. By the grace of the God we will establish the new world system. In Afghanistan we did mistake and we do not want to repeat this mistake in Lebanon and Palestine and other Islamic countries. We defeated former Soviet Union in Afghanistan. But we did not establish new world system. We did mistake to put United States in this first range of world chart and in fact we are responsible to make US powerful. At that time if we wanted 200 million dollars from Americans as compensation, they would pay us in order to attract us or Afghans. But today United States is taking advantage of Afghans and now is standing at top of the world. So today our duty is to bring United Stated from top to down.

So for facing this challenge we relay on the God Almighty. This speech that you hear presented by an Egyptian Arab Muslim  from England, who calls everyone to unity and solidarity for helping our Egyptian and Palestinian brothers, so that the Islamic Ummah by the grace of Allah be release from any kind of dictatorship and corruption.*

 

 

Speech Presented by H.E Mr. Khalil Hamdan

Member of Presiding Board of Lebanon Amal Movement

 

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Mr. President,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Distinguished guests,

Assalamu Alaykom va Rahmatullah va barakatoh

I am giving this speech on behalf of the Lebanon Amal movement to the participants of this conference. The movement that was established by H.E. Mr. Musa Sadr, who has been disappeared since long time back and now is headed by H.E. Mr. Nabih Berri.

First of all, I would like to express my deepest appreciations and thanks to the people and honorable authorities of the sacred Islamic republic of Iran for their relentless efforts with regard to the issue of Palestine. The issue that is considered strategic by people and officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran. This issue has as long history as occupation of Palestine and this nation observes it as a central issue.

Today, we are facing an undeniable fact, the fact that has seen a lot of ups and downs. We have faced with forces who want to disarm the Resistance Movement, and also we witness the groups who want to come together in this harsh situation. Can we overcome to all these difficulties? The difficulties we've been facing for long time.

I was studying some articles; a while ago I found some old hand-writing articles including letters related to Palestinian question. In the meantime, I passed by chance to a letter that great Mujahid and Martyr Abdul-Qader Husseini had sent it to the Arab league on 6th April 1948. In this letter that he wrote to the president of Arab League he said: "you had left Mujahids and resistance, alone in front of enemies, without arms and foods, for this reason I hold you responsible for the outcomes". Since that time a long period has pasted but this letter still is useful and no clear response has been given to it by Arab league or other statesmen, except those statesmen who are popular and are in line with their people's ideology.

It is worth mentioning to give an example of brave Syria in Hafez Asad era and the present example of the sacred system of Islamic Republic of Iran. It is also appropriate to remind the courageous nations who bravely, and regardless of the confirmation of their heads, rallied and demonstrate on the streets to show their self-motivated objection. I would like to state to the participants of this Conference that, unfortunately the above mentioned letter has not received due response so far.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Once again, Israel discloses its face and dominance as the main enemy of Islam and Muslims and the Palestinian issue, and along with its strength and using its military trainings, Israel reveals its true face as the real enemy. Today Israel has become a military town and huge base of USA's fighters in the Middle East region. Today Israel strengthen its military power and army more than ever and with more courage than any time before, makes uses of depleted uranium (nuclear) bombs. This alarming position of Israel proves its enmity towards Muslim and Arab world.

But in the meantime, the principal question that comes to the mind is that what is our responsibility, how should we manage it and what kind of decision is necessary to be adopted as a constructive and practical action in front of a fierce enemy? Unfortunately, a very difficult situation has been prevailed for Muslim and Arab world, a situation that the rulers in spite of helping, place obstacles vis-à-vis people's support for Resistance movement, and the organizations which are trying to help Resistance, are faced with inappropriate treatment!

In this situation, the outstanding issue is the active role of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which accepted to face with enmities and hardships and also to bear all kinds of objections and sanctions as well as political, economic, scientific and cultural pressures. Syria because of its position, found itself at the same situation of the Islamic Republic of Iran, as well.

Lebanese Resistance was not an exception from this rule. Why? Because it is necessary that no actor and no power in the world (under the light of Resistance) be able to counter with aims, policies and strategies of Resistance, even the illegitimate Israel.

Respected Sisters and Brothers, 

However some efforts is done in line with resolving the question of Palestine, but we were unable to bring about glory and honor for them, especially for the deprived people in Gaza strip. By supporting the demonstrations and rallies or sending sympathetic letters to them, if we only declared our solidarity and convergence to the Palestinians, especially to the people of Gaza strip, we shouldn't be proud of our actions, because we did nothing significant in comparison to the courageous and noble resistance of the people of Gaza strip. Under these circumstances, the useful and desired action is to help to the needy people in Gaza strip and to contribute to the reconstruction of Gaza because Gaza residents at the time being are deprived from their primitive needs, like having garments in this cold and rainy season.

Despite these hard and difficult conditions, unfortunately, like always, the repeated and useless promises can be heard, but none of them have been 

 Realized in practice. For this reason, I would like to call on all countries, including Islamic Republic of Iran, Syria and Resistance and people of Lebanon, Jordan etc, to avail themselves of this opportunity to contribute to the oppressed people of Palestine and the residents of Gaza.

Imam Musa Sadr once had said:" if the House of God, Ka'abah, would be attacked by the foreign enemies of Islam, no damage would reach to it, because the God Almighty will preserve it. But if this damage comes from Muslims because of their divergence, then there might be tenfold destruction". Therefore, what I would like to refer and emphasize is the issue of unity and solidarity. But this unity and solidarity should be based on the rule of loving Palestine and its liberation as well as Resistance. Despite all, the Resistance will be victorious and will gain honor and respect whether in Palestine or any where else in the world. Based on this, Imam Musa Sadr was the one who for the first time gave the real meaning to the Resistance and he was the one who said: “Al-Qods is the first Quibble of all Muslims. Al-Qods is the substantial place of resistance, unity and the ascension of our prophet. Al-Qods is the initial and substantial question for all of us".  He was the one who said: "the responsibility to liberate Palestine is considered as our main duty and accountability, and we can never refuse from this important responsibility, it's a life and death question". Imam Musa Sadr was resistant Mujahid who traveled to Arab countries, one by one, with a car, in order to send his message to them. One of the countries was Libya which during his visit for creation of solidarity in order to counter Israeli threats in 1978, he was kidnapped. Now, one of our main duties and responsibilities in this Conference is to support and defend him and call for the freedom of prisoners of Zionist regime jails, as well as we should try to release prisoners of certain Arab countries.

Our request to the committee of formulating the final declaration of Tehran Conference is firstly to request Libya to release Imam Musa Sadr and his loyal companions as soon as possible so that we can accompany them to their home in Lebanon. Insha`allah.

Vassalamu Alaykum va Rahmatullah Va Barakatuh*

 

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Mr. Shikh Balal Sha'aban *

Member of the Muslim Scholar Association of Lebanon

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

At first I World like to thanks the Islamic Republic of Iran for holding and hosting this very important Conference. Iran has always been supporter of the oppressed people of the world.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

The program of jihad and resistance and program of Islam are based on diversity of humans. In holy Qoran the God Almighty says:

“O you men surely We have created you of a male and a female, and made you tribes and families that you may know each other” (49:13)

So diversity is for perfection and evolution, the God wants us to make acquaintance of each other. But blasphemy wants us that in spite of getting acquaintance and familiar (to know each other) to create dispute and conflict among each others.

We are living under the shadow of Islam for almost 14 century. During all these centuries, the Muslims have lived next to Christians, Jews and other religions without any problems. The God Almighty says:

“Permission (to fight) is given to those upon whom war is made because they are oppressed, and most surely Allah is well able to assist them; those who have been expelled from their homes without a just cause except that they say: Our Lord is Allah, And had there not been Allah’s repelling some people by others, certainly there would have been pulled down cloisters and churches and synagogues and mosques in which Allah’s name is much remembered; and surely Allah will help him who helps His cause; most surely Allah is Strong’ Mighty”(22:39 – 40)

Thus the aim of the program of Islam is to support freedom and beliefs that on the basis of them the people will be judge in the resurrection day. But the oppressors are trying to change the progressive and process of Islam. Same powers believe that 4/5 of the people on earth are useless and should go under oppression so that the rest live on peace and tranquility. Therefore it should be `say that the program of resistance is planned to support humans from different religions vis-à-vis the colonial plans. Resistance is not a new plan that to be created by special religion or tradition. But resistance and jihad are programs that should be implemented among humans and even other creatures. For example we can compare this program with outer space layer. This space layer fight against all kinds of dangers and try to destroy them otherwise the earth would be destroyed.

The question is that in spite of all these facts can we still say that the earth is trying to implement the terrorist plan. The other example is human body. The body resists the danger by the white globules. When a virus entered human body the white globules resist and fight against virus. But dead body faces with all kinds of virus and parasites. So can we say the body of human being for fighting against virus is doing a terrorist act? So with regard to resistance and the program of Islam and man the God Almighty says:

“Permission (to fight) is given to those upon whom war is made because they are oppressed, and most surely Allah is well able to assist them” (22:39)

So what are the reasons for giving permission for resistance and the response is:

“Those who have been expelled from their homes without a just cause except that they say: our Lord is Allah” (22:40)

The God Almighty says:

“And fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits. And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out” (2:190-191)

This is reciprocal. That means if man resort to cruelty and oppression, in hell he will be associated with oppressors. The God Almighty created you and if you resort to oppression the God Almighty says:

“Surely (as for) htose whom the angels cause to die while they are unjust to their souls, they shall say: In what state were you? They shall say: We were weak in the earth. They shall say: Was not Allah’s earth spacious, so that you should have migrated therein? So these it is whose abode is hell, and it is an evil resort”(4:97)

Therefore resistance is religious duty determine by the God Almighty.

With regard to the quality of resistance we should say that mechanism of holy Qoran is:

“And if you take your turn, then tetaliate with the like of that with which you were afflicted” (16:126)

“And fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits’ surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits” (2:190)

Those who have believed to the words of God and obey the orders of Islam and defend their territory have in fact faith on resistance. So what is resistance? It means to fight with new methods like: demonstrations, and issuing declarations for condemning occupation.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

The reality is that when the God Almighty determine for us the resistance and jihad, is because the God know the nature of his creature.

“Dose He not know, who created? And He is the Knower of the subtleties, the Aware”(67:14)

Dear Audience,

After victories achieved in Lebanon on 2000 and 2006 and recent victory in Gaza, all the affairs were transformed from state to the people. We have step to new arena which is ruled by people and the role of people are once again revive. Thank you

Aslamo Aliakom Va Rahmatollah Va Barakatoh

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Dr. Ali Feisal *

Representative of Political Council of Democratic People's

Front for Liberation of Palestine

Mr. Chairman,

Dear Sisters and Brothers

Distinguished Audience,

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei, Esteemed supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, His Excellency Mr. Mahmmoud Ahmadinejad , Esteemed president of Iran, His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani, Esteemed Head of Islamic Consultative Assembly and His Excellency Mr. Ali Akbar Mohtashamipour, Esteemed Secretary General of the Conference, for holding this Conference with the title of "support for Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of crime."

Mr. Chairman, we have gathered here while we have two great victories vis-à-vis us: victory of the Islamic resistance in south of Lebanon in the summer of 2006 led by Seyyed Hassan Nasrollah and great victory and heroic resistance of the people of Gaza in the beginning of the year 2009. I am sure between the period of this Conference and the next one (fifth conference), we will have another great victory which shall be the end of Iraq occupation, protection of its sovereignty and abolishment of all the suppression measures against people of this country.

Resistance of the people of Gaza is as such that it really matches with the title of this Conference as "support for Palestine, symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of crime." The point that we have to add to this title is: resistance is the alphabets of the people of Palestine and in fact is alphabets of all oppressed people of the world who revolt against US domination and racial discriminatory policies of Zionists. Gaza is not only a region which revive the credit of Palestine. But Gaza because of being under bombardments of prohibited weapons became the reason for uprising of Arab, Islamic and all freedom-loving people of the world. Gaza proves to US and Zionist regime that the will and intention of the people is much stronger than weapons of US and Zionists.

Gaza as a result of resistance became manifest of this concept and the resistance is the best tool for protecting the legitimate rights of the people of Palestine. Resistance of Gaza proved that all military solutions faced defeat and the reason for infertility of all these solutions during last 60 years, have been clarified. All of you know that today those who made conciliation have reached to end, while people of Palestine started their resistance and struggle once again in Gaza strip and west Bank.

The wall of resistance is much stronger comparing to the wall of liberalism, wall of discrimination, wall of occupation and wall of establishing settlements in West Bank.

Situation in Gaza is very critical while we face with the changes inside Zionist Regime. The regime which once again revive its discriminatory and fascist ideologies. The Zionist regime is basically extremist and its cabinet will move the world toward destruction and insecurity. While we Palestinians will resist until we materialize our goals and objectives for having an independent country, enjoying right of self-determination and all other legitimate rights.

With regard to the conditions and terms set forth by four-lateral committee for the need to recognize Israel by Palestinians and all the signed agreements from Oslo pact till now, we ask the people of the world and also criminal Israel to recognize the legitimate rights of the people of Palestine in establishing independent country with Al-Qods as capital and to respect returning back of refugees to their homeland on the basis of the resolution 194. we tell all the people of the world that Zionist regime have committed international terrorism while we only defend ourselves for liberating our occupied territories and we ask them to take measures for establishing real peace for the people of Palestine. We consider all these conditions baseless and emphasize that reconstruction of Gaza dose not have any relation to it. Now is the time to reach to unity and solidarity and in this regard the Egypt talks have taken place with support for the resistance of the people of Gaza; confronting against expansion of settlements; confronting with immigration of the people from their motherland  Al-Qods.

Frankly speaking I should say that all the groups should participate in these negotiations and thus provide the ground for revival of national unity, so that to establish national independent state. We should avoid bilateral, unilateral even four lateral decisions. We need liberation movement and solidarity of all groups within the framework of national unity. The recent talks in Egypt are a good step and our common goal is to establish a government with national unity which should monitor the process of reconstruction of Gaza strip. It is not merited that our nation remains without land and territory. Also we want to separate reconstruction of Gaza from political games. Also we would like to hold election for electing head of self-governing administration and parliament of Palestine. Revival of PLO as the only legal representative of Palestine and efforts for reconstruction of PLO on the basis of democracy, are our goals and objectives. This document revives the national plan as a move for establishing independent Palestinian country with Al-Qods as capital.

All the Palestinian groups signed this document and Egypt pact, but we would like to implement it practically. Under the shadow of materialization of national unity should have united front and at the same time try to have similar position to calm the situation in Gaza Strip and West Bank, so that all the operations related to terror and establishment of Jewish settlements to be stop. At the same time the siege and blockade should be stopped and all the border passages should be open.

We firmly request for the establishment of legal committee for the trial of Israeli political leaders and army commanders for the charges of committing crimes in Gaza Strip, and killing Lebanese in Ghana and also committing crimes against Arab people and their army in Sinna and Jolan.

Those who issue verdict against president of Sudan are themselves responsible for all the problems in Sudan and they are the one that should answer and not president or people.

Also we request establishment of a fact finding committee. I would like to emphasize that today we need Arab solidarity for participating in the next Arab summit. So that in the light of this solidarity the Arabs could be able to play their role efficiency for: supporting resistance of the people of Palestine, confronting the enemy's aggression, closing the embassies of this regime (Israel) just like measure taken by the government of Venezuela. Here I deem it necessary to present my appreciation to the states and people of Latin American countries and particularly Venezuela. Also I appreciate the positions adopted by Syria and the Islamic Republic of Iran in this regard.

At the end on behalf of the secretary General of PLO I present my greetings and appreciation to the leaders, government and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran for their just position.

Thank you.*

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Dr. Mohammad Favaed Al barazi *

Head of the Islamic Association of Denmark

 

In the Name of God, the compassionate, the merciful

 Dear Brothers,

This very important Conference has been hold by the Islamic Consultative Assembly at the time when Islamic Ummah face dangerous challenges in various economic, political and military arenas. From one hand the western world and on the other hand Zionist front make various conspiracies against Muslims. Besides inside Islamic Ummah the Zionist front which is under the influence of west, take measures against interests of this Ummah. The poet said true about Islamic Ummah that:

Proliferated on the antelope krasho krash know what hute. 

That means Kharash (name of poet) went for hunting and suddenly all the deers surrounded him, but Kharash did not know which one of them should be hunted.

Perhaps some one will ask what should be the relations between the Muslims and aggressors and occupiers.

The answer shall be: the relations of Muslims with others should be based on cooperation and friendship and as the God Almighty say: the relations should be based on justice. The Muslims should respect this principle and under following conditions defend themselves.

For defending ourselves, when the Muslim face danger vis-à-vis himself and his properties or families then he must defend himself. A Muslim should never accept degradation and misery.

In this regard the God Almighty say:

“And fight in the way of  Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits” (2:109)

Motasem prepared an army including millions Muslims to free a Muslim women who was arrested by enemy.

So Motasem dispatched his army and free the Muslim women and conquest "Amorieh".

Defending religion is a must for a Muslim, because religion is the most valuable and precious wealth for mankind.

To stop aggressions of aggressor is a dignity and merit for Muslim because loving his own land, territory and country are signs of faith and thus defending his country is a must. In this regard the God Almighty says:

“They said: And what reason have we that we should not fight in the way of Allah, and we have indeed been compelled to abandon our homes and our children” (2:246)

Also prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) said whoever is killed for good cause such as defending his country, property, himself, religion, family, shall be considered as martyr.

The followings are special cases in which the God Almighty introduces war in Islam as a legal measure. These are the cases which are accepted even according international agreements. So with regard to the issue of Palestine we can say that all these points existed. That is why we are all gathered here.

Dear Brothers,

The terrible situations of our Palestinian brothers and killings of women and children and destruction of schools, hospitals, mosques etc, prove the fact that none of the peace agreements with Zionist regime were useful. The Zionist regime takes advantage of these agreements for his aggression against Palestine. So resistance is the only option for the liberty of Palestine from occupation. The God Almighty says:

“Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and assist you against them and heal the hearts of a believing people” (9:14)

The demonstrations of people in more than 120 countries of the world prove the justification of resistance as the only option for the freedom of Palestine.

The poet Zahi ebn Salmi say:

"Those who do not defend their houses with their arms are not merited. “ The usurper Zionists destroyed Al-Aqsa mosque and started digging over there and constructed a tunnel behind it. The reason for digging this tunnel was destruction of Al-Aqsa mosque. So how we can make peace with criminal Israel in spite of all these crimes he had already committed. The criminal who thinks of nothing rather than oppression, committing crime and assassination of the freedom-loving leaders. What kind of pact with these criminals could be useful and fruitful? What kind of sovereignty and independent it is that head of self-governing administration shall not leave its own country without Israel permission? So on this basis I believe that all the freedom loving people of the world should strengthen and expand the spirit of resistance and jihad (holy war) among their Ummah, because resistance is a fact and in this regard the God Almighty say:

“Prophet incited believers to fight”

Revival of the spirit of Jihad and resistance among Islamic Ummah Particularly with regard to judaization of Al Qods, is a "religious duty".

The holy prophet of Islam (P.B.U.H) said:

 “Who did not urge the same invasion died on the people of hypocrisy.”

At the end I present this poem to all my Muslim brothers particularly my Palestinian brothers:

 “and from fears climbing mountains live forever drilling’” Means: whoever is panic of climbing a mountain then shall always remain inside holes?

Dear brothers I would like to ask your cooperation in making efforts for opening the passages for the people of Gaza. Also we emphasize on reconstruction of Gaza without bringing any harm for the sovereignty of Gaza.

Mr. Chairman,

We thank the Islamic Republic of Iran for holding this Conference and for supporting the just resistance of the people of Palestine.

Also we send our greetings to the Republic of Syria for its support from resistance vis-à-vis Zionist enemy.

I wish you all ever-increasing success. *

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Dr. Leonardo kiliyerchi ,*

Italian Philosopher,

Mr. Chairman,

I thank you and the Islamic Republic of Iran. I have been the guest of the Islamic Republic of Iran for more than 30 years. I am going to be very brief. I address you as the representative of European Islamic, and in fact as a part of philosophy of the Islamic European. I hope my words can contribute objectives of this Conference.

My contribution to this Conference will be included in two points. First in Europe we feel deep pain for what takes place in Palestine. But unfortunately due to the European political system the pressure is so strong that we can not express our opinion and the different dimensions visible in this respect.

That is the situation. The big oppression in Europe in which we are; How to fight this situation. In the last 30 years we tried to clear the definitions of Palestinian issues. That is our contribution. First what is the meaning of Al-Qods. No body in Europe and may be in the world knows what is the meaning of Al-Qods. To clear that meaning we, as philosophers, think that we have to work on Qoranic verses and develop centers in every part of Europe and the world to make clear that meaning. But on the meaning, Al-Qods implies the place of knowledge; A place of transfiguration. It is not only indicative of a land. So the first problem facing us is to find Qoranic meaning of Al-Qods. In the Emamate Shia tradition, Al-Qods is a link with Imam Zaman and that from Karbala to Al-Qods there is a link. Mirage and ascension of prophet is not only a history but reality of the meaning of this place. A place of no place. And Europeans in more than 2200 years develop the idea that this place is of material significance. In contrary through the holy writings of Europeans this place is known merely as material place. This theory of Zionist, colonialism and orientalism. This approach to the holy writings. We, as Muslims, shall study inside of these holy writings and develop a new approach based on Towhid and give new approach to Al-Qods. This shall come out of our inside. First religiously we need to find the new approach and then define the political approach.

The political problem in this respect is in fact the geopolitical problem. The strategy in this respect comes from the Mediterranean strategy which is not limited to, Palestine but for instance Italy as well as. But how we shall define the Mediterranean strategy with cooperation of all countries from China, Iran,etc to the Mediterranean realm. That is the future approach to Palestine. So we have to meditate on two issues. Therefore firstly we need to develop centers to think of Al-Qods.

That is the problem with Europeans. They know nothing. This is ignorance. How do you wish to fight a situation you know nothing about in order to determine the meaning of Al-Qods.

And that is the big difference between Muslims and colonialists' approach. As the Jewish Rabbi told here they do not recognize the present situation in the land and etc. That is the problem. The methodology. We think that at first we need to do this with use of the Qoranic philosophy. As Imam Khomeini said, we need to define Al-Qods as what it is. In this way we can help Palestinians which is the future of our strategy in this respect as well.

              Thank you very much.*

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Dr. Marvan fars,*

Representative of Lebanon Parliament

 

Ideology of victory

We have come from Lebanon the country which is symbol of victory and resistance against Zionist enemy, to participate in the International Conference “in Support of Palestine Symbol of Resistance, Gaza victim of Crime", and our presentation will be in two fields: ideology and achievements in Lebanon and Palestine.

First: Ideology

Palestine which at first was only ethnic issue for Arabs, now has changed to an important Islamic issue because of the continuation of conflict, and position taken by the Islamic Republic of Iran in closing up Israel Embassy after victory of its revolution and declaring the last Friday of the month of Ramadan as the "Global Day of Al-Qods" and at the same time helping the people of Palestine to free their territory from enemy's occupation and to establish an independent country of Palestine. The late Imam Khomeini founder of the Islamic revolution of Iran, from the very beginning emphasized that Israel is like a cancer tumor which should be destroy and wipe out from the region. Following this statement His Excellency Mr. Mahmmoud Ahmadinejad President of the Islamic Republic of Iran said: “Israel should be destroy and replace by another country. This ideology is fundamentally opposing the pact of 1916. According to this pact the historical land of Syria was divided and different regimes such as Zionist Regime were emerged. Therefore we can say that this Regime is a part of colonial process and its destruction means destruction of colonial process. This ideology means that resistance not only performs its activities against Zionist Regime but rather against Colonial Power. The colonial and imperialist process continued along with resistance activities and in between the Palestinian revolution in 1965, not as a separate but rather complementary process, was emerged. The intention and desire of Islamic Ummah was based on struggle against all kinds of foreign dominations.

Recently the then Minister of Foreign Affairs of U.S. Mrs. Condoleezza Rice talked about creating a great Middle East or new Middle East. So in order to confront this statement the following consequences were achieved:

During the recent war of Zionist Regime against Lebanon on 2006, it was clear that the army of this regime can be defeated, the army that gained dignity during the wars of 1948 and 1967 and the war against Lebanon. The great war of Lebanon which took place for 33 days proved that 6 days war came to an end and thus it was possible to defeat Israel. Therefore after this war and its glorious conclusions all the people of the world come to know that through resistance it is possible to destroy colonial process and this indicate that the will of Ummah is very strong.

During the 22-day Gaza war it was proved that Palestine people were much stronger than Jewish Zionist; however the global community and some Arab states supported Zionist Regime. This issue indicates that in spite of closing all the passages and silence of international Community vis-à-vis massacre of children and women and elders, still the victory was for Islamic Ummah.

The Conference of Sharm Al-Sheikh in Egypt was nothing rather than conspiracy against Palestine. The participants in this conference wanted to reconstruct Gaza without considering Hamas, which defended people of Palestine and confronted enemy. It is evident that all these crimes and massacres were performed on the basis of the will and intention of international community. Then the process of reconstruction without Hamas shall be performed with the will and intention of international community and this means continuation of war against people of Palestine.

The conference of Sharma Al- Sheikh has been hold in order to revive the process of conciliation between Self-Governing Administration and Zionist Regime and at the same time to exit Hamas from political scene and this conciliation is in fact another green light for continuation of war.

In this regard Mr. Toni Belar, the representative of Four-lateral Committee for Peace in Middle East said: "The aid which at the present is given to Palestine is useless without a political solution". That means the condition for granting financial aid is to destroy resistance and this is nothing rather than international conspiracy against Palestine which will continue either during war or during process of reconstruction.

How the reconstruction can be materialize, while the boarder passages are closed? How the reconstruction can be materialize while the people are under siege and blockade?

Secondly: achievements

The Zionist Regime continued its threats and crimes and use of prohibited weapons, at the same time the resistance missiles were used against enemy and thus the war and conflict continued in Palestine either during war or even at time of peace, and Israel's peace means international peace: that means permanent war in Palestine unless Israel to be destroy completely.

Therefore we can say the Zionist project is a Jewish project which its goal and objective is to establish Jewish country inside Palestine territory without even one Palestinian inside it.

Achieving this conclusion means materializing the Jewish project inside Palestine which has various historical forms. Therefore if Jewish project is permanent war project, then Palestinian project is permanent peace project based on national causes. So between war and peace there is another project for liberation of people which is supported by Arabs and not Jews.

At present Syria and Iran are united together and are granting aid to the people of Palestine. So by defeating the policy of isolating Iran and Syria, great achievements will be materialized, and today the policy of U.S has been defeated and Obama the new President of U.S , has adopted the policy of negotiation and is trying to implement it.

This new changes and developments in international policy create new international situations; resistance against enemy is the main essence of fundamental policy of the present stage which moves toward real peace and freedom.

The present global economic crisis of America and Europe is at the threshold of collapse. If Europe continues its colonial policy, then it can never continue to exist and if U.S. remains imperialism it can never preserve the symbol of science and knowledge for itself in the world.

The present period is the period of peace and not war. The Islamic Republic of Iran will open all the doors towards knowledge and science and at the same time the people of Palestine move towards freedom and construction.*

            Thank you

 

 

Speech presented by H.E Mr. Ahmmad Abdolkarim , *

Head of Arabic People Committee of Syria in support of the resistance and Palestine

The Zionist movement was depended to colonial Europe till the establishment of Israel. The European colonial power collapsed after the war of 1965. Since then, this movement depends on United States of America. Since the Second World War the Zionist movement has very good and close relations with U.S.A.

The United States after taking all the duties and responsibilities in the Middle East, on the basis of doctrine of Eisenhower, it chose Israel as a tool for supporting its policies in the Middle East, and for confronting and preventing growing Arab movements and freedom and solidarity in the region, and at the same time to preserve its interests in the region and also to prevent the influence of Soviet Union in the region.

At this stage the military and economic power of Israel increased and their international relations expanded. Thus the Zionist movement decided to materialize its expansionist dreams according the old testimony, particularly since it supported United States of America and became one of the biggest bases of U.S.A in the heart of Arab world. During that period of time the conditions were as such that the Arabs supported socialist regime leaded by former Soviet Union. Thus the region changed to an arena for cold war between two super powers. Any victory for Israel was victory for U.S. and any defeat for Arabs was defeat for Soviet Union. Thus the United States of America in order to support its interests in region did not withdraw from Arab-Israel conflict.

It was natural that situation in 1960 changed with regard to Arab-Israel conflict to the extent that Israel was persuaded to start the war of 1967, occupied Sinai desert and all the Palestinian territories and Golan Heights in Syria, and  destroyed all the arms of Syria and Egypt made in Soviet Union. Israel by doing all these acts tried to intensify its ties with U.S. in the process of cold war.

The Zionist movement, with the military victory of the Israel army achieved material and spiritual achievements in all fields particularly in the field of ideology to the extent that most of Jewish living outside Israel started to support Israel. Jews thought that military victory of Israel shall revive its dignity and respect and thus the old-testimony dreams of creating Jews Emperor  from Nile to Euphrates was once again blooming.

The reality is that this war brought very negative results for Arab States. Therefore Arab defeat in Jun 1967 was in fact the defeat of Soviet Union and victory of U.S. thus the Zionist leaders became very proud after this victory. They thought Arabs are not able to regain their respect and continuation of war would force Arabs to act according Israel will and intention.

U.S. also acts in a manner as if it is the one who gained victory and all the Arabs and their supporters were defeated. U.S. was sure that Israel would remain honest and fiddle and Arabs were not able to take revenge and thus U.S. shall solve all the problems of Middle East like the war of Vietnam.

U.S. gave full authority to Israel to disobey UN resolutions. But all the calculations of 1970 were defeated. On 6 October 1973 suddenly there was war against Israel in two frontiers of Egypt and Syria. In the first day of war all the defenses of Israel in Golan Heights were defeated and thus the legend of Zionist movement and its projects were destroyed. U.S.  Lost its confidence on Israel to support its interests in the region. There were disputes among NATO member states. Most of the Western countries rejected to participate in military actions of U.S.  For saving Israel and started to have direct negotiations with Arabs. Since that time U.S.  Came to know that it can not do any thing even thought it created friendly relations with certain Arab States in order to prevent their unity and solidarity. So their countries used the oil as an arm against U.S. and Israel.

After this war, the people of the world came to know the weakness of Israel and potential possibilities of Arabs in the light of solidarity and unity. But U.S. still continued its support for Israel, and made a great effort to further expand its relations with this Regime so that to keep this Regime much stronger than Arab States.

Also U.S. tried to take use of all disputes arise among certain Arab States. U.S. also tried to put his hand over oil resources of the region and provided the ground for materialization of this goal. U.S. presented various military and political projects in order to preserve its interests in the region and maintain the security of Israel.

All U.S. efforts were materialized after the war of October: including signing of Camp David Pact, creating two wars in Persian Golf and war against Iraq in 2003, which is still continuing with Iraqi resistance.

The unity and solidarity among Arabs in the war for freedom on October 1973, Intifada of 1986, Intifada of Al-Aqsa and victory of Lebanon resistance against Zionist military forces on 2000 and forcing them to withdraw from Lebanon had all very negative effects on Israel society and Zionist movement. Today the Zionist had come to know that in spite of having unity and coalition with U.S.  and Europe, still this unity could not bring security for them. Also they understood that signing different pacts and treaties with certain Arab states which were performed under U.S. pressure, did not had any interests for them. At present many of the leaders of this movement (Zionist) believe that it is the time to recognize the legitimate rights of the people of Palestine and emphasize on establishment of an independent country with Al-Qods as a capital. They even claimed that Israel has to return to the boarders of 1967 to the extent that even some of the Zionist leaders declared that Zionism is dead. Of course Zionism is not based on logic but rather a dream and that is why it rejects any logical analysis. Today many Jews in the world and even some Zionists doubt about legitimacy of Israel.

All these changes and developments and unity and ties between Zionist and U.S. particularly after war against Iraq and occupation of this land, obliged us to present in this conference certain documents regarding the ideology of the Zionist leaders, and we would like to have your attention with regard to the two important documents. One of the important documents is an article written by Dan Diner, professor of history from Hebrew University. Diner in his article refers to historical issues relating to Ben-Gurion and Goldman. According his writings Ben-Gurion during end of his life doubted to the principles on the basis of which Israel was created. Ben-Gurion said to Goldman: “I am sure that I would be buried here in Israel, but for my son I am not sure and I do not guarantee". I heard the negotiations held between Mondes France the then prime minister of France and Ben-Gurion with the presence of the Algerian Ambassador during the war of October 1973. Ben-Gurion told Mondes France: “We are not happy of the result of this war which brought happiness for many Jews in the world and Israel, because this war was not to the interest of Israel but it was a cold war between two super powers of the world. The proud commanders and leaders of Israel would endanger the destiny of Israel and Jews. With this war they awaken the Islamic and Arabic awareness and this conscious shall destroy Israel very soon. Finally there will be permanent peace between Arabs and Jews who immigrated to Israel from abroad”.

Other document concerns the message of Abraham Bourg, who is one of significant leaders of Israel and also head of the parliament and Jews Agency. During this message he refers to the death of Zionist movement. Some part of this message is as follows: “Yes, Zionist is dead. Today Israel has changed to corruption and cruelty. Today’s generation is the last Zionist generation and only one cruel Jews country will remain and I ask this question who will be interested to be citizen of this cruel country?"

At the end of his message he said: “The present situation shall not be continued even if Arabs are forced to cover their heads, because there will be a time which nothing works any more, any building made on pillars of feelings and sufferings of others shall be collapse soon….. Be careful you dance on the ground which is not very solid and stable! Because we do not listen and do not hear the out cries of Arab mothers and widows who are standing behind checking points and are complaining for all these killings. We do not pay attention to the future of Palestinian children. We are very surprise to see Palestinian children do not give importance to their own life and run for being martyr!”

The Israel leaders did not take lesson from October war and are getting blind because of proud and cruel wishes. They did not take lesson from the war of Menechim Begin and Ariel Sharon against Lebanon on 1982, the war which was created by U.S. and let to the exit of Egypt from Arab line and signing of Camp David Pact. They thought with starting this war, they could weaken Lebanon and its resistance, but very soon Lebanon gained victory and Israel suffered defeat. With this defeat the legend of Israel which was like arrow in the heart of Arab States, ended and then Israel was obliged to withdraw shamefully from Lebanon on 2000.

Under such circumstances the Iran-Iraq war started on 1979. One of the results of this war was that Iraq stop to confront Israel and Arabs were divided to two groups of opposing and supporting war, the war that destroy all the capabilities of the two great neighboring countries and awaken the devils. This war destroyed the mind and logic of people and closed the doors on people with good-intentions:

After Iran-Iraq war, there was another war which paves the ground for second Persian Gulf War, The war that changed to domestic war between Arabs. With this second Persian Gulf War the U.S. found the opportunity that desired since the war of October 1973. What better chance rather than disintegration of Arab world and weakening Iran and Iraq and creating fear among Persian Golf countries after so much sufferings tolerated by Kuwait since Iraqi attack!!

Thus U.S. in pretext of creating security in the region, sent its air and marine forces to the region, the Iraqi people became victim of all these military interventions. Thus the unity and solidarity of Iraq was destroyed. Then U.S. started direct intervention in Persian Golf which took legal form, and thus attacked Iraq and put this country under its own siege for 11 years.

After the event of 11 September 2001 the U.S. attacked Afghanistan for destroying Taliban government which was cooperating with Al- Ga`edeh. Then on 20th April 2003 attacked Iraq under pretext for having mass destructive weapons. After this attack, U.S. on the basis of experience of Israel in war against Palestine, created new strategy and on the basis of this strategy, U.S. more than any other things used its air force and missile abilities and new military equipments. The rapid destructive war against enemy which brought not many damages was the result of this strategy of U.S.A.

U.S. by depending to this strategy created new plan:

1) Dominating over world through Arabic base and dominating over oil resources of the region

2) Amending the infrastructure of the region based on the policies and strategies of U.S.

3) Imposing new world regime headed by U.S. particularly after the collapse of Soviet Union,

4) Making china busy with its new realities

And finally:

5) Disability of European Union in disobeying U.S.

Only few months after attacking Iraq U.S. started to make mistake by declaring victory. Tow or three years after occupation of Iraq, U.S. felt defeat and thus resorted to its friends in NATO treaty and South-Asia Pact in order to preserve its credit.

Those who were responsible in U.S. for creating new strategy understood this mistake. They understood that they should never consider oppressed people weak; the nation and people who start people resistance instead of military war in order to preserve their national cause and national dignity. The people of Iraq with their popular strategy, paralyzed the great military power of U.S. thus U.S. was defeated in Iraq and the war continued in Afghanistan. Israel also faced defeat vis-à-vis Palestine resistance and accepted its disabilities regarding the mission that U.S. gave to it in the region after Suez Channel war in 1956.

All these defeat during Bush administration did not convinced U.S. and thus U.S. once again persuaded Israel to attack Lebanon on 2006. The main goal and objective of this war was to destroy Islamic resistance leaded by Hezbolah and achieve victory (because of U.S. defeat in Iraq) and to fulfill the greed of Israel army. Fortunately this war also faced defeat and Israel army was forced to withdraw once again.

It is natural that U.S. was thinking to take the affairs of Lebanon and Syria in its hands after the victory of Israel army, but both of them faced defeat.

Still U.S. and Israel did not stop and prepared themselves for another war in order to save the credit of U.S. after its continuous defeat in Afghanistan, Iraq and Lebanon. Thus the cruel and brutal war against Gaza started. After 22 days of genocide and massacre, finally ended again with defeat of Israel. Israel Regime was recognized as the most detestable Regime. The Palestine resistance leaded by Hamas and resistance of the people of Gaza once again proved to people of the world that the popular support can be much stronger than any military army.

Thus the resistance in Lebanon, Gaza , Palestine , Iraq could confront the most powerful armies of the world, the armies which are equipped with latest new military equipments and thus denied all theories regarding this point that victory can be achieve only through military and missile attacks.*

 

 

 

Speech  Presented by H.E Mr. Shiekh Fares Salibie, *

Palestinian Philosopher living in Lebanon

 

In the name of God, the Almighty

 

The God Almighty Says:

“And hold fast by the covenant of Allah all together and be not disunited” (3:103)

To have unity in Jihad (holy war) and in resistance are in fact the strongest pillars of solidarity. By the Grace of the God Almighty the Islamic Ummah today has reached from jihad and resistance to practical resistance and it has changed from potential power to practical power, and now is ready to confront all the powerful colonial powers of the world. One of the blessings of the divine religious of Islam is that the faith will move the man toward resistance and resistance will increase faith in man and thus man will become closer to the God Almighty and that is a gift for man. Of course those individual who have faith and say the truth will be blessed, and those who do not say the truth and resorted to cruelty, they have in fact chosen the Zionist Jews as their friends rather than the believers. The Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:                                                           

Dose not meet my nation are misguided

Because Islamic Ummah will be enlighten by holly Qoran and true followers of Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H). Of course if the Islamic Ummah gather in one place to condemn crimes and cruelties, that do not mean that they have gone wrong way, because this condemnation is as a result of their true nature and the God Almighty created  man on the basis of this true nature.

In fact global consensus with regard to condemning occupation and all other crimes emerge from above-mentioned realities and on this basis all Arab and Islamic nations and even other nations of the world started uprising in support of the oppressed people of Palestine and demonstrate to cease and stop the crimes of Zionist Regime and cruel siege of Gaza.

The God Almighty Says:                                                 

“and made you tribes and families that you may know each other” (49:13)     

That means to have interaction with each others on the basis of friendly relations and to get together on the basis of good intentions.

Imam Ali said the same thing:

There are two types of people either brother to you in debt or for you in the creation.

It means our duty is to strengthen our humanitarian nature by having warm and friendly relations and to have a practical Islamic pattern for our deeds and words.  Of course the practical pattern will be much better. In this regard Imam Jafar Sadegh Said: “Be invited by people without tongues,”

The God Almighty has place Jihad (holy war) and resistance next to the faith and introduces these elements as reasons for having good deeds.

“The believers are only those who believe in Allah and His Apostle then they doubt not and struggle hard with their wealth and their lives in the way of Allah; they are the truthful ones.” (49:15)

There are so many verses in holy Qoran with regard to Jihad. These verses are not only for Muslims but in fact Jihad is one of the significant characteristic of divine revelation to all the prophets.

Jihad for God brings dignity and honor for the Islamic Ummah. If there is Jihad the Islamic Ummah exists too and if it does not exist the Islamic Ummah would not exist.

“If you help (the cause of) Allah, He will help you and make firm your feet” (47:7)

Resistance which is consider as terrorist act in the eyes of enemy, today is facing conspiracy of devilish people. These devilish people say to other that the soldiers of holy war and fighters for liberty do not have any legitimacy and nobility and defeated people whose territories are under occupation should obey the occupiers.

They have even used certain terms such as: “realistic”, “moderate”, “peace” and other terms which are right but they do not seem right. There fore we should alert so that do not be cheated and decided by them. Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) at the end of his life invited us to follow always the Holy Qoran and tradition of Prophet. Today resistance faces various obstacles. The noble resistance is under

 

attack of domestic and foreign enemies and all these enmities are resulted from being materialist and hating the death and resurrection and this is an issue which Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) talked about it clearly.

The issue was seen during the time when prophet was living in Medeina and also can be seen in Palestine at present. In any case we should never weaken the will and intention of fighters of holy war and the way they have been chosen. The God Almighty says:

“And your forces shall avail you nothing, though they may be many, and (know) that Allah is with the believers.” (8:19)

It means: we should praise the God Almighty for giving us the blessing of resistance and Jihad so that we will be able to punish enemy. The God Almighty say:

“They will not fight against you in a body save un fortified towns or tram behind walls;” (59: 13)

The Jews disappeared themselves for many years behind the walls so that to be safe from fighters. During all these years they have resorted to all kinds of terrorist crimes without facing any punishment until the missiles of Palestinians and Lebanese started to attack them. Finally the Jews who were successful always, faced defeat by fighters for liberty. So the resistance became stronger and the enemy felt anxious for their future. Of course all of us are well aware about the role of the Islamic Republic of Iran and stability of Syria for the dignity of the Islamic Ummah.

The Islamic Ummah should prepare itself for continuation of resistance so that to reach victory, freedom, dignity and prosperity. For proving that resistance is just we always repeat this sentence: “the resistance is legitimate right of all people whose lands have been occupied and faced aggression, and this is a right accepted and confirmed by all international laws.”

But if we consider this confirmation as the only support for resistance, then we had made great mistake. Resistance is a religious duty and order of the God Almighty. There fore resistance is a stable right which can not be effected by international laws, and these law do not have right to decide for resistance whether to be continue or not. Also resistance is not a puppet of the Arab or non-Arab, parliaments, universities or four-lateral committees.

We all know that international law in order to preserve its interests and influence, support unjust resistance. Also we had seen that international law prevent just resistance and confront it, because this kind of resistance reduces the power of influence and intervention of international law and put its interests at danger. We should remember the following : and by “And prepare against them what force you can and horses tied at the frontier” (8:60)

nd by taking into consideration all these just words , we should first of all increase

our capabilities, if we would like to create security for our Ummah, firstly we should create domestic security for our selves.  But if we give authority to others to decide the destiny of our nation, then it is a mistake and not in the interest of our nation. Thus if the situation continue as such, then the condemnation of the criminals for committing genocide in Gaza will  have same condition as  condemnation of the criminals for committing  massacre  in Sabra and Shatila, Ghana, South Zahieh, Ibrahim Shrin  ,Al-Aqsa …….etc. So international court did not take any action for all these crimes and did not issue any verdict in this regard.

We are strong and so we are free. We are free, so we fight for liberty. We fight for achieving liberty so we can be a judge. We shall bring justice and right. We help the oppressed and take revenge from oppressors.

During the war of June and Gaza war, people took the authority in their hands; they changed the attitudes of leaders. These leader take benefit from the aid granted for Gaza reconstruction so that to destroy the result of victory in Gaza. So I recommended this great conference that in order to activate and revive the role of people, to give their suggestions, so that all the conspiracies would be disappear and thus we shall take step toward third victory. We do hope that the God Almighty help us to move towards freedom of Al-Quds and return of all Palestinian refugees to their mother lands.*

 

 

Speech Presented by H.E Mr. Sheikh Khaled Osman,*

Member of Lebanon Muslim Association

 

In the Name of God, the compassionate, the merciful

 

At the first I would like to express my gratitude to our distinguished Iranian brothers particularly H. E. Mr. Seyyed Aliakbar Mohtashamipour, esteemed Secretary General of the Conference for inviting us to participate in the 4th “International Conference in support of Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza Victim of Crime”.

In 1942 on the basis of ominous declaration of Balfour, the usurper Zionists came from different parts of the world to Palestine and in front of the eyes of the people of the world started to kill and massacre the oppressed people of Palestine. The most tragic was the fact that the world community which claims to be civilizing recognized the false Zionist Regime and thus violated all the international laws and criteria of human rights.

While all the regional and international efforts for vindication of the legitimate rights of the people of Palestine faced defeat, the Zionist enemy occupied more Palestinian territories and committed various crimes against Palestinians.

So vis-à-vis this tragic event and disability of global community for destroying enemy and vindicating the legitimate rights of the people of Palestine and also in the light of the weakness of many Arab sates regarding Israel tragic crimes and acts, the resistance movements were created for defending the legitimate rights of the oppressed people of Palestine and started fighting against Israel.

Resistance proves to be the best way for facing arrogant Israel. In the year 2000, the Lebanon resistance was created in the southern part of Lebanon, for the first time after Israel – Arab war. The Lebanon resistance created heavy defeat for Zionist enemy in 2006 to the extent that the credit of Israel army in the world was destroyed and people looked at it as a defeated army.

The Zionist regime for regaining its credit started to siege Gaza strip and made it as a big prison. This regime deprived people of Gaza from their basic needs and after two years of siege started a very unique and brutal military attack against this region.

The occupier Zionist with the support of the U.S government and NATO member states and with the scandalous cooperation of certain Arab states committed the most horrible crimes in Palestine.

The Zionist enemy by using prohibited weapons committed the most horrible crimes against a nation who were under siege.

In this regard the Palestinian combatants with firm determination faced the enemy and gained historical victory to the extent that enemy could not materialize its goals.

The terrifying crimes in Gaza made the justice- seeking people of the world to upraise and condemn these crimes.

We, in this conference with the participation of many Islamic and Arab personalities who have long history in defending oppressed people, are obliged to adopt firm decisions vis-à-vis the responsibility which we have on our shoulders.

So, far realization of this important issue I would like to suggest the followings:

Emphasize on the necessity of the continuation of resistance for defending Palestine and legitimate rights of the people of Palestine and granting different political, material and military aid to the resistance.

Requesting all the freedom-loving people of the world for supporting the resistance movements and assisting resistance for vindicating the legitimate rights of the Palestinians and trying to force usurper Zionists to withdraw from holy territory of Palestine.

To establish a legal delegation for the prosecution of the criminals of war (Zionist regime).

To adopt immediate measures in all international organizations of human rights and legal institutes in order to end the continuous violation of human rights in Palestine and to stop the cruel siege of Gaza strip and to open boarder passages in order to send humanitarian aid to Gaza.

To establish a group of elites and religious scholars for informing the public and promoting their awareness regarding the culture of resistance as the best tool for facing aggressions, of enemy and for destroying the unjust and oppressor and defending oppressed and also explaining the fact that resistance against cruelty is the legitimate right of each nation and all the divine religious and international laws accept this fact.

Under such circumstances the human values and justice criteria are denied and stronger rule over weaker, so here in this conference we considered ourselves responsible for helping our brothers in Palestine and pray to the God Almighty to help us so that we will be able to materialize this important case.Thankyou. *  

 

Speech Presented by H.E  Mr. Ibrahim yahya Shahabi *

Head of Syrian-Palestinian Association for Right to Return

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

I try to be as brief as possible and I open my speech with the following verses from holy Qoran: 

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: our Lord! Cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper” (4:75)

“How should ye not fight for the cause of Allah and of the feeble among men and of the women and the children who are crying: our Lord? Bring us forth from out this town of which the people are oppressors! Oh, give us from thy presence some protecting friend! Oh give us from thy presence some defender." And the God Almighty in another verse say:

“And prepare against them what force you can and horses tied at the frontier, to frighten thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them, whom you do not know (but) Allah knows them; and whatever thing you will spend in Allah’s way, it will be paid back to you fully and you shall not be dealt with unjusty” (8:60)

“Make ready for them all thou const of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that there by ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside them whom ye know not. Allah knows them. What so ever ye spend in the way of Allah, it will be repaid to you in full and ye will not be wronged."

According this verse the God Almighty , while asking one surprising question clearly invite people to resist against cruelty and aggression. That means if you do not resist, nobody will support you. In another word it means the God Almighty will protect you if you resist aggression and cruelty.

In the second verse the God Almighty recall the elements of victory and success, which is full preparedness and preparedness, includes followings:

Training

Arrangement

Security

Discipline

National history and memory

Having faith to the God and Jihad (holy war) and resistance

It is natural that by having faith and believe on the God Almighty and by relying on God for everything, all religious and ethnic conflicts shall be disappear and unity and solidarity will be strengthen.

The God Almighty says:

“And obey Allah and His Apostle and do not quarrel for then you will be weak in hearts and your power will depart, and be patient; surely Allah is with the patient.” (8:46)

"And obey Allah and His messenger, and dispute not one with another lest ye falter and your strength departs from you, but be stead fast, Allah is with the stead fast".

And in another verse the God say:

“And hold fast by the covenant of Allah all together and be not disunited.” (3:103)

"And hold past by the covenant of Allah all together and be not disunited and ….."

While we worship the God Almighty at the same time we should be attached and have affection for our great Arab countries (either Islamic or non-Islamic) and our Islamic counties (either Arab or non-Arab). This affection should prevail over other regional, ethnic fractional affections. If this point is materialize then all disputes between different groups or regions shall cease and at the same time the enemy will not get the opportunity (unfortunately like today) to have its influence.

There is another important issue which should be taken in to consideration and that is to create interaction between Arabism (as culture and language and not race) and Islam (as ideology), because the nature of Islamic-Arabic civilization was formed by interaction of this two important element. The nature and identity which play important role in science and progress of human civilization and establishment of justice and peace. But when these two are separated and Islam stand opposite Arabism, then everyone will be against us. The good example in this regard is like to set apart the two main important elements of water: O and H and by doing so the water which is essence of existence for every creature will be destroy and thus the life and existence shall come to an end.

7) Strategic thinking,

The strategic thinking shall be achieved by recognizing precisely the enemy and the nature of the objective that we are fighting for.

We should know that our enemy is global Zionism and all the arrogant powers are supporting Zionism. The Zionist Regime is not only an occupying regime but is the Regime which obviously entered the houses of people and occupied them. On the other hand this Regime exiled a nation from their own mother-land and replaced them with another nation whose duty is to destroy security in the region. If this issue becomes clear then the right to return for refugees will be our prime objective. The return of Palestinian refugees to their home means eradication of Zionist projects. Fight for realization of the right to return is Jihad (holy war) for God and is very valuable. Therefore we can say that war existed in various frontiers and everyone should powerfully participate in all these frontiers. Thus the Syrian-Palestinian Association for Right to Return ,according followings accusations and charges, has establish a legal front against Zionist Regime at global level:

The membership of Zionist Regime in United Nations is illegal, because it rejected the conditions for being the member of U.N and that is rejecting resolution 1940 which emphasize on right to return of refugees to their mother-land.

The Zionist Regime shall pay compensations to Palestinian refugees and Syrian immigrants for not allowing them to return to their mother-land.

Since Zionist Regime is using the lands and properties of refugees, therefore it should pay their interests to Palestinian and Syrian refugees.

To pay compensation to Palestinian and Syrian refugees for destruction of their lands and properties.

Annexing Golan Heights and Al-Qods as a part of Israel territory is illegal.

All efforts of Zionist Regime in occupying lands are considered illegal.

Since 1948 the Zionist Regime committed various crimes against humanity particularly in its recent attack against Gaza.

For proving these charges we should have support of all different groups of society such as: writers, journalists, jurists, representatives of parliaments, western politicians and representatives of human rights, and American and European mass Medias. We should make our best efforts in order to achieve appropriate conclusions.

Following points also should be considered as the elements of victory and success:

To have obligation to the main objectives and not paying attention to other issues.

To be equipped with latest modern weapons for confronting enemy. Here we should refer to scientific progress of our brother country Iran.

The Jewish people in the world and non-Jewish supporters of Zionist Regime and even many great companies grant some shares of their interests to Zionist Regime in order to support their criminal plans. We Muslims and Arabs have not only bigger population, but rather we have much more wealth and resources. So all these elements help us to confront Zionist projects. The God Almighty has promise us that will return back our wealth if we had granted them for good cause.

We had already witness all these elements of victory and success in Hezbolah of Lebanon and Hamas and Islamic Jihad and other resistance groups in Gaza. In fact this victory was achieved as a result of Iran and Syria's support. At the end I would like to present some recommendations:

 

The right to return should be given priority in all political, military, legal and cultural forms of Palestine.

From technical points of view, we should have faith on establishing independent country of Palestine with Al-Qods as a capital, with full sovereignty over West Bank and Gaza Strip without Jewish settlements and Separating Wall.

To accept the logic of democracy. Since 1948 the Palestine Liberation Organization has been formed by Al-Shaghiri and supported by Abdul Nasser. After Al-Shghiri new resistance groups were established and now by establishment of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, these two movements should become members of Palestine Liberation Organization.

To support resistance and its methods.

As it has been mentioned, the national dependency should prevail other issues and thus the formula should be as follows:

"Either Palestine or none of us, me or you".*

 

 

 

Speech presented by her Excellency Mrs. Asma Abdul Hamid *

Professor of Denmark University

 

The issue of Palestine is still under discussion in most of Political meetings and forums.

In spite of the fact that there is issue of justice, but it is strange that no body provide the field for ending conflicts, difficulties and sufferings of the people of Palestine.

Thus the present situation obliged us to raise the issue in this Conference. Our discussions shall be considered very important. But what I consider important and pray for it to be materialize is that we had already analyzed Palestine issue and now it is the time for making a great change.

Undoubtedly it is necessary to make changes because it is almost 62 yeas that Palestine is suffering from inhuman conditions. That means the fathers who witness the death of their children and mothers witness death of their daughters and finally the world witness occupation of Palestine and nothing have been done to solve this problem permanently.

When we see the participation of representatives of parliaments of different countries here, then not only as Danish politicians but as a human being we get hope and motive for continuing our efforts.

What we see indicate that there are still interests for freedom, justice and human rights. I thank all the organizers of this Conference, because they recall that human rights belong to every one and mostly to the people of Palestine.

I hope the human rights become starting point for all of us and to be considered important in our life. Our goal is to help people of Palestine, people who are suffering. The people who have not lost their hope for achieving freedom and the right of self determination in spite of all killings and massacre and sufferings.

Palestinians are the people that every body in the world should take lessons from them and learn from them how to fight and resist and sacrifice themselves for achieving freedom and justice and fight for their right to live and their legitimacy to live as a free nation.

They should die or live? They should die to protect the dream of being alive and that is what the world learns from Palestinians.

They fight for something that we have achieved it very easily.

Therefore we have duty to pave the ground for making changes because we have the resources and this potentiality create on the basis of these resources.

We have potentialities to end Palestinian difficulties and sufferings on the basis of unity and integration based on legitimate resistance of Palestinians.

We can insist on unity and integration based on legitimate resistance of Palestinians because each nation including Palestinians are free and independence as a nation and can enjoy their right to live. We should emphasize on human rights and unity for supporting people of Palestine.

The world struggle against terror. US started war against terrors. However I agree with it but we should ask which terrors? We should all fight against terrors and the world should be united against terrors of Israel against Palestinians.

Some people believe that the movements in certain countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and Lebanon are a kind of Terrorism. But the problem of terrorism is Israel which is imposed against Palestinians. But they (arrogant powers) condemn Palestinians instead of Israel.

The world should stop this conspiracy. We can not criticize Israel only for not respecting human rights, this is not enough and this has been proved. Israel should go under commercial sanctions and it should not receive arms and armaments.

Palestinians are trapped in their own country. Their lands particularly their agricultural lands which is their source of livings, are confiscated.

The Palestinians are faced with insult everyday and their fundamental rights are ignored. So we have the opportunity to make efforts for achieving peace and justice. But the question is weather we dare to make it or not?

We have responsibility to be well aware. The important issue is weather we can make necessary changes or not? So for doing so we should take fundamental steps.

Do we do any efforts of sake of humanity? Are we able to be active in order to create justice? If we take steps and decisions and work for peace and justice, then we shall have support of our people, and shall enjoy honor from their part with regard to what we do, and this behavior bring them closer to us.

The Palestine situation indicates growth of injustice in the world. It shows that how we consider economy much more important rather than the life of women, children and men.

So the answer is positive ……… yes we can.

I do hope and expect that all of us reach to agreement that Israel should stop siege of Gaza. We should ask Israel to destroy apartheid and discriminatory wall so that Palestinian to breath again. We should make efforts to establish an independent Palestinian country.

The Palestinians should enjoy the right to return to their homeland. Palestine should be recognized internationally and its people should enjoy dignity.

The right to enjoy healthy and safe life and the right to develop infrastructure in Palestine should be materialized. It is possible to create unity and solidarity. Thank you .*

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Thanks to the God Almighty for creating us as a united Ummah. Also thanks to the God Almighty for gathering us together here in Tehran , capital of Iran, the land of dignity and honor and the country of Quran and faith and thus through this gathering created fear in the hearts of our enemies. The Muslim people of Iran are so lucky to live here under leadership and guidance of His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran and His Excellency Dr. Ahmadinejad, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

 Greeting to this brave people of Iran on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic revolution of Iran which was achieved by His Eminence late Imam Khomeini.

Blessing to this nation, for successful lunching of satellite to space, and once again, greeting to this nation for having the honor to be the member of the International Nuclear Agency. We always supported Iran for peaceful use of nuclear technology and its expansion in all Islamic territories.

Blessing to this country for supporting all the oppressed people of the world and at top of them our brothers in Palestine. The people of Palestine are fully supported by the noble people of Iran, leaders and government of Iran.

If Iran from geographical points of view was located next to Palestine and was neighbor of this country, then Israel would not dare to kill even one bird in the Palestine territory. Also I would like to refer to this point that if neighboring countries would open boarder passages to Palestinians and would not participate in the siege and blockade of this territory, then our Palestinian brothers with support of our brothers from Iran would gain same power as our brothers in Hezbollah of Lebanon and thus would create their independent country till the day of divine victory,

“And that they may enter the mosque as they entered it the first time, and that they might destroy whatever they gained ascendancy over with utter destruction” (17:7)

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Here, with regards to lack of time I would like to avail myself of this opportunity to refer to five important aspects for supporting the people of Palestine:

Economic Aspect:

All the member countries of OIC (Organization of the Islamic Conference) should participate in the reconstruction process of Gaza, the territory which was destroyed completely within 22 days of war, just like Hiroshima of Japan on August 1945. Here I would like to extend our gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for making honest efforts for participating in the process of Gaza reconstruction. Also I would like to Thank His Majesty Malak Abdullah, for granting one billion U.S Dollars for Gaza reconstruction. I send a gratitude letter to His Majesty King of Saudi Arabia and requested him to grant their financial aid directly to the leaders of Gaza, so that no body particularly the beneficiaries who are waiting for such chances do not be able to take advantage of this aid.

In the process of Gaza reconstruction, not only the states and governments should participate but rather the private companies and business men should also participate. My suggestion is to establish a Found in Iran in order to collect all the financial aid for Gaza.

Military Aspect:

I believe that the base of political interaction with Zionist Regime (in case of its existence), should be the support for resistance. That means dialogue with this Regime should be perform from the position of power. During the process of history the Zionist Regime has proved that it obey only powerful countries. If we show weakness this Regime will never respect or act according 4th convention of Geneva regarding “respecting civilians during war”. In fact it does not give importance to any international laws for supporting human rights. Therefore supporting resistance will not let Zionist Regime to attack cities and villages. If the Islamic countries support resistance fully and open the passages to Palestinians and give them arms, then we have not wasted our time for reconstruction of Gaza.

Cultural Aspect:

To establish a true cultural framework in the public opinions and minds of Arab and even Western peoples regarding Zionist Regime and denying all the false logics of this Regime regarding its right over Palestine territory after destruction of Haikal. In the history it has pointed that before destruction of Heikal by TITUOS, commander of Romania (the Zionist considers their displacement as a result of his decision) the Jewish population out side Palestine was more than its population inside Palestine. In addition the word Zionist was used for the first time by Jewish intellectual Rabbi Natan Birbenavem. Even Natan denied Zionist when he came to know that they will be responsible for destroying Jews and thus returned back to Jewish orthodox customs who does not believe that Jews should have an independent country. Many Jewish intellectuals such as Rabbi Joseph Bikhar had fought all their life against Zionist ideology and their supporters.

Establishing of this cultural framework based on historical realities and testimonies of honest intellectuals and people, is a guarantee for mobilizing public opinions of the world against Zionist Regime, a Regime which by forming similar cultural framework attracted almost the world. Therefore all the intellectuals and writers should mobilize in order to materialize this issue.

Media Aspect:

As you know the activities of certain medias such as Al-Menar, Al-Jazira and Al-Alam reflected real character of Zionist Regime vis-à-vis world public opinions, to the extent that even European people through these medias and satellite networks while saw the crimes committed by Zionist Regime in Gaza, started to demonstrate in their streets  against Zionists. Thus some of the satellite networks supporting Zionist Regime such as France and American networks made lots of efforts to gain the sympathy of the people of the world while one of Hamas missile attacked one of villages in Israel.

Fighting against Zionists is mainly the media fight rather than military one. Therefore the world Medias should know how to reflect the message of the siege of Gaza to the people of the world. People of the world before hearing shall see the pictures of realities and crimes committed against Gaza by Israel. Seeing these pictures can have great effects on them rather than hearing only the news.

People’s Aspect:

Blessing to late Imam KHOMEINI, he left good gift for all the Muslims of the world by declaring the last Friday of the month of Ramadan as the “Day of Al-Qods”. So I requested all Islamic countries to determine certain days so that in those days all the people of the world demonstrate and upraise in support of Palestine and tell the world that this is not an issue of Palestine only but rather an issue of the world, Islam and humanitarian one. As holy Quran refer to this point:

“Say: there is not upon us in the matter of the unlearned people any way (to reproach).” (3:57)

And then there will be no Zionist Regime any more.

So we should make our efforts together in order to materialize all these aspects and by grace of the God Almighty achieving victory is very close.

Long live to Palestine and Islamic Iran, the country of freedom-loving people of the world,

Greeting to resistance forces in Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan and all the martyrs.

Greeting to all those who have been wounded during war and wishing good health for all of them. *

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Thanks to the God Almighty for creating us as a united Ummah. Also thanks to the God Almighty for gathering us together here in Tehran , capital of Iran, the land of dignity and honor and the country of Quran and faith and thus through this gathering created fear in the hearts of our enemies. The Muslim people of Iran are so lucky to live here under leadership and guidance of His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran and His Excellency Dr. Ahmadinejad, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

 Greeting to this brave people of Iran on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic revolution of Iran which was achieved by His Eminence late Imam Khomeini.

Blessing to this nation, for successful lunching of satellite to space, and once again, greeting to this nation for having the honor to be the member of the International Nuclear Agency. We always supported Iran for peaceful use of nuclear technology and its expansion in all Islamic territories.

Blessing to this country for supporting all the oppressed people of the world and at top of them our brothers in Palestine. The people of Palestine are fully supported by the noble people of Iran, leaders and government of Iran.

If Iran from geographical points of view was located next to Palestine and was neighbor of this country, then Israel would not dare to kill even one bird in the Palestine territory. Also I would like to refer to this point that if neighboring countries would open boarder passages to Palestinians and would not participate in the siege and blockade of this territory, then our Palestinian brothers with support of our brothers from Iran would gain same power as our brothers in Hezbollah of Lebanon and thus would create their independent country till the day of divine victory,

“And that they may enter the mosque as they entered it the first time, and that they might destroy whatever they gained ascendancy over with utter destruction” (17:7)

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Here, with regards to lack of time I would like to avail myself of this opportunity to refer to five important aspects for supporting the people of Palestine:

Economic Aspect:

All the member countries of OIC (Organization of the Islamic Conference) should participate in the reconstruction process of Gaza, the territory which was destroyed completely within 22 days of war, just like Hiroshima of Japan on August 1945. Here I would like to extend our gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for making honest efforts for participating in the process of Gaza reconstruction. Also I would like to Thank His Majesty Malak Abdullah, for granting one billion U.S Dollars for Gaza reconstruction. I send a gratitude letter to His Majesty King of Saudi Arabia and requested him to grant their financial aid directly to the leaders of Gaza, so that no body particularly the beneficiaries who are waiting for such chances do not be able to take advantage of this aid.

In the process of Gaza reconstruction, not only the states and governments should participate but rather the private companies and business men should also participate. My suggestion is to establish a Found in Iran in order to collect all the financial aid for Gaza.

Military Aspect:

I believe that the base of political interaction with Zionist Regime (in case of its existence), should be the support for resistance. That means dialogue with this Regime should be perform from the position of power. During the process of history the Zionist Regime has proved that it obey only powerful countries. If we show weakness this Regime will never respect or act according 4th convention of Geneva regarding “respecting civilians during war”. In fact it does not give importance to any international laws for supporting human rights. Therefore supporting resistance will not let Zionist Regime to attack cities and villages. If the Islamic countries support resistance fully and open the passages to Palestinians and give them arms, then we have not wasted our time for reconstruction of Gaza.

Cultural Aspect:

To establish a true cultural framework in the public opinions and minds of Arab and even Western peoples regarding Zionist Regime and denying all the false logics of this Regime regarding its right over Palestine territory after destruction of Haikal. In the history it has pointed that before destruction of Heikal by TITUOS, commander of Romania (the Zionist considers their displacement as a result of his decision) the Jewish population out side Palestine was more than its population inside Palestine. In addition the word Zionist was used for the first time by Jewish intellectual Rabbi Natan Birbenavem. Even Natan denied Zionist when he came to know that they will be responsible for destroying Jews and thus returned back to Jewish orthodox customs who does not believe that Jews should have an independent country. Many Jewish intellectuals such as Rabbi Joseph Bikhar had fought all their life against Zionist ideology and their supporters.

Establishing of this cultural framework based on historical realities and testimonies of honest intellectuals and people, is a guarantee for mobilizing public opinions of the world against Zionist Regime, a Regime which by forming similar cultural framework attracted almost the world. Therefore all the intellectuals and writers should mobilize in order to materialize this issue.

Media Aspect:

As you know the activities of certain medias such as Al-Menar, Al-Jazira and Al-Alam reflected real character of Zionist Regime vis-à-vis world public opinions, to the extent that even European people through these medias and satellite networks while saw the crimes committed by Zionist Regime in Gaza, started to demonstrate in their streets  against Zionists. Thus some of the satellite networks supporting Zionist Regime such as France and American networks made lots of efforts to gain the sympathy of the people of the world while one of Hamas missile attacked one of villages in Israel.

Fighting against Zionists is mainly the media fight rather than military one. Therefore the world Medias should know how to reflect the message of the siege of Gaza to the people of the world. People of the world before hearing shall see the pictures of realities and crimes committed against Gaza by Israel. Seeing these pictures can have great effects on them rather than hearing only the news.

People’s Aspect:

Blessing to late Imam KHOMEINI, he left good gift for all the Muslims of the world by declaring the last Friday of the month of Ramadan as the “Day of Al-Qods”. So I requested all Islamic countries to determine certain days so that in those days all the people of the world demonstrate and upraise in support of Palestine and tell the world that this is not an issue of Palestine only but rather an issue of the world, Islam and humanitarian one. As holy Quran refer to this point:

“Say: there is not upon us in the matter of the unlearned people any way (to reproach).” (3:57)

And then there will be no Zionist Regime any more.

So we should make our efforts together in order to materialize all these aspects and by grace of the God Almighty achieving victory is very close.

Continuation of the Gaza revolution, the only way for liberation of Palestine

Since the Palestinian uprising, known as “Baraq Uprising” 1930 (1-7 Shahrivar 1308) took place in reaction to the violent demonstrations of young Zionists we have witnessed 80 years of the rightful struggles of Palestinians including the first Intifada 1988(18 Azar 1366) and the Second Intifada 2001(7Mehr 1379) for defending and restoring their indisputable rights. In the course of these struggles we have witnessed crimes committed by the Zionist regime as well as bravery and devotion of the Palestinian people and leaders. It goes without saying that if in 1948 we had the present Palestinian generation who have so far launched the two Intifadas and who stood against the Zionists during the 23- day war in Gaza
(27 December 2008 – 18 January 2009) surely today we would not have witnessed current brutality of the Zionist regime. But in order to identify reasons behind the war in Gaza after one and half year economic blockade we need to have a flashback.

Al Aqsa Intifada in September 28, 2000 was a prelude to a series of political, economic and cultural developments. The combatant Palestinians, empty handedly and only by throwing stones, started the Al Aqsa Intifada in form of a new drive and with a fresh Islamic morale stronger than ever before. Of course based on the reasons behind the creation of this Intifada and its continuation we need to carryout another research but it suffices to know that this movement was followed by very important impacts upon the Palestinians, living under the rule of the Palestinian Authority, especially Gaza.  The western countries and the Zionist regime intended to stir up division among Palestinian factions and by resorting to military actions in Gaza and destruction of the Palestinian infrastructures and imposing   economic blockade against the Gaza Strip bring the Palestinians to their knees pushing forward their ill-intentions. If we go through different reports and available statistics then we can understand the real tragedy imposed upon Palestinians and the heinous policy adopted by the Zionist regime vis-à-vis Gaza. Following the all out embargo imposed upon the democratically elected Palestinian cabinet by the western countries and given the fact that all key economic infrastructures of Palestinian people have been demolished by the Zionists in absolute silence of the international media and the community, now the Palestinians are facing harsh shortages of food and the basic requirements for living. The Zionist regime has committed every crime in this region and we can easily claim that it ploughed all the urban and rural structures including houses, streets, farms, lands, and industrial centers and roads enjoying the regional and international green light.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Before starting my main speech I wish to notify two points; first why I chose the word of revolution for the struggles of Gaza? Before victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran in 1979 there was a simple definition for all revolutions in the revolution related theories. But after victory of the Iranian revolution many relevant theorists had to change the definition analyzing the factors which were of significant value in the revolutions. Of course we can claim that the Iranian revolution caused a new wave in the revolution theories known as the fourth generation revolution theories or fourth generation of revolutions.

I do not wish to enter a scientific discussion in this presentation and I limit my self to only the relevant back ground.

I called the 23 day Gaza resistance a revolution because the resistance of Gaza could defuse the Zionist war machine so easily in a disproportionate war causing a great and deep development in the resistance literature, the international law and the regional and international political equations. Therefore this resistance shall be recognized as a real historical and revolutionary move which will trigger a turning point in the Palestinian struggles. The resistance is a revolution because it is not limited to a beginning or an end and because it is a process in the evolution of the Palestinian struggles sparked by leadership of Ezeddin Qassan and continued until the Stone Intifada. Of course this theory and the relevant naming process will be realized only when the social experts start the relevant comprehensive and all out research.

The second point is the fact that the Gaza war lasted 23 days and not 22 days. Because the Zionist army after 22 days crimes, massacring more than 1300 innocent civilians most of whom were women and children, injuring more than 5500 and leveling 20000 buildings including homes, schools, hospitals and other public places and sites to the ground, had to announce its unilateral cease fire but only one day later the resistance fighter accepted the cease fire in order to collect the corps and attend to the injured population.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

By the blessing of the Almighty we have gathered here at a very auspicious time. Now we are witnessing awakening of the Ummah and promotion of their unity. This is because of the unprecedented resistance of the Muslim fighters and support of all Muslims for them. Now the leaders of the Zionist regime have lost their self confidence and due to the crimes they committed are afraid of their own destiny. What, now, shall be done is to find the Achilles Heel of Zionism in order for the Muslim fighters to strike the heaviest blow on it. It goes without saying that Zionists and their western supporters have committed the most heinous and inhuman crimes, the crimes which had they committed by any other regime even the Zionists and western supporters themselves could not remain silent towards them. Now the pro-Zionist parties come together for two times, in Sharm Al Sheikh within less than two months in order to decide on the Palestinian fate in absence of their real and legitimate representatives. This is due to their fear and frustration. I shall notify that what happened in Gaza is a disgrace for the Zionist history, though what they did in Gaza is quite similar to their previous crimes in Kafar Qasem, Sabra and Shatila, Ghana…. But in the previous cases the news reporters despite all Zionist limitations could go to the scene of events and show a part of the Zionist crimes while in the case of Gaza no reporter was allowed to enter the area. The Palestinian combatants have disturbed comfort of Zionists to that extent that they do not wish the relevant news to be spread and heard. Desirous to covering the crimes they committed, Zionists after receiving the green light from the west and some regional leaders, vowed to destroy the infrastructures of the legitimate Hamas Cabinet before election of the new U.S President on January 20th, 2009. But Zionists who came under harsh pressure of the public opinion could not realize their prime objective for dismantling Hamas. Therefore having enjoyed further support of the U.S Administration they launched heavy assault against civilian areas in Gaza hoping to dilute the popular Palestinian support for Hamas.  In the conclusion they hurriedly and one-sidedly announced the ceasefire on 17 February 2009 and withdraw their forces from the Gaza city within two days. This occurred while they could not realize any of their prime objectives. Although after the ceasefire the humanitarian relief groups resort their activities in the Gaza Strip but the previous restrictions are still there which itself caused interruptions in the aid operations.

Distinguished participants,

As we can see in the news, based on the vow made by USA, Persian Gulf Arab littoral States and a number of other countries, a 3 billion U.S Dollars aid is going to be allocated for the reconstruction of Gaza with the preconditions set by the donor parties. It goes without saying that no body shall pin his hopes for realization of these vows given the said preconditions and unwillingness of the Zionist regime for reconstruction of Gaza. It is said that the United States wishes to allocate 900 million Dollars for this purpose while according to one of the authorities of the Gaza American School the total amount of 700 million U.S Dollars which had been spent for construction of this school in which 600 students were passing their educational courses have wasted because of its destruction. We also face this question that whether this amount of money will be spent in the desired manner or not, given the unpleasant experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq; and even if this money is spent in the right manner who shall be accountable to the families of victims? The reality is that in this disproportionate war killing of innocent people and destruction of civilian targets had been put in the Zionist agenda on purpose. Although they killed a large number of people and destroyed many places but they could not break back bone of the resistance. Even some western circles now are questioning exact number of martyrs and injuries calling for independent investigation in this respect. During this war more than 400 children lost their lives and even during the one-side ceasefire claimed by Israel, two children studying in the UN sponsored school were martyred. It is deadly sure that Israeli commanders are the main criminals of this incident. The Zionist forces used phosphorous bombs and other weapons of mass destruction in the densely populated areas of Gaza. During the “Cast Lead” operation no difference was made between civilian and military targets and a disproportionate war was staged in clear contrast with the 4th Geneva Convention. Though it is said that the ICC currently is investigating the competence and qualification of Palestinian authorities for filing the relevant complaint and indictment against the Zionist regime’s crimes and war crimes but all international parties shall do their best in order the Zionist leaders to be dealt with exactly the way Adolf Ayshman was dealt.

Distinguished Participants,

Now we shall remain vigilant and try to provide all the required evidences and use the talented legal advisors and experts not to let the Zionist leaders and their supporters to escape from punishment. The judgment by the ICC in this respect can play a decisive role in other cases of International crimes and its competence in investigating other cases like building the separating wall in the West Bank which are of negative impacts upon the peoples’ living conditions in region. Of course we shall make sure that political motivations do not play any role in this respect. According to a number of reports a part of the investigation of the ICC has focused on the International agreement signed by the Palestinian Authority in order to prove competence of the Palestinian authorities as representatives of a sovereign state to file the relevant indictment.

It is so surprise that how come a nation who lost its soil and state due to occupation of forces of a fake state now has to prove it is competent and qualified for filing indictment against the atrocities imposed by that fake state. It is more surprised to know that the case of competence or qualification shall be examined by those who themselves are considered as supporters of that fake state; those whose judgment will necessarily be to the loss of the nation. Besides, although it has stipulated that the ICC is qualified to consider and examine the case but the Zionist regime despite its previous positive position vis-à-vis this court and its confirmation of its relevant constitution still is not considered as a formal signatory to the ICC’s constitution. On the other hand the ICC itself does not consider Palestine as a sovereign state which in itself is considered as biased move.

But the present conference takes place when the world expects to witness that struggles of defenders of the right preserve all blood of the oppressed people of Gaza. The message of the present conference shall revive hopes in the hearts of all Muslims. We have not gathered here just to express our sympathy with the family victims or appreciate their efforts but to see and find out how we can convey their message properly in order to help them lead their struggles towards decisive victory in favor of all Palestinians and all freedom lovers. But in line of the drive to turn these struggles in to a legitimate and internationally accepted right to combat in defending the Palestinian territories against the occupiers I would like to state the following points;

Based on what took place in the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran led by Imam Khomeini (RA) which now included in the social theories on revolution the only way for liberation of the Palestinian territories and the Palestinians and establishment of a united State of Palestine is to make required and proper planning in order to promote the presence of the people in the struggles. To this end the Palestinian issue shall not be viewed with in merely a government aspect because in the present international systems governments are facing their own restrictions and limitations barring to play their desired roles. This occurs while firstly people and people’s organizations and NGO’s do not face such limitation and secondly if the peoples’ role promotes in the relevant scenes then governments also may use it as a lever in order to push forward their prime objectives for restoration of the Palestinian rights. In this way the upper hand will remain with those governments who enjoy their peoples’ support. In another word powerful presence of people and NGO’s in every internal or external event is considered as a good tiding which will surely be followed by numerous profits. This of course lies in the practical reliance and trust of the national leaders on their own people. Therefore if we couldn’t win the people support yet we need to reconsider our socio-political management. By enjoying the people’s support the government will be relieved of a heavy task and be free from the price of their positions vis-à-vis different political issues. We shall notify that people with their own logics, may impose their wishes upon the pro-Zionist powers better as compared with the past.

One of the symbols of the annual presence of people in support of Palestine is the “Day of Qods” which despite all the problems and difficulties indicates the existence of Qods in the consciences of all Muslim people. It is notified that presence of people on such an occasion can not be compared with other occasions and it is of both physical and spiritual values. This also is indicative of the full preparedness of the people towards final settlement of the Palestinian crisis. But in order to realize the required evolution in this move we need to unify our relevant activities based on the people’s demand. In this way we can prove illegitimacy of Zionism and stop unconditional support for it.

Doesn’t the present inhuman situation in Gaza make us in further attend to Gaza’s problems? The best people, facing a very unfortunate situation, are now trying to survive in their confrontation with two internal and external enemies. Lives of these people and their children are in a great danger due to shortage of food and medicine. Are you distinguished participants, as the main civil, political and social pillars of your countries ready to join our leader in order to embark on an all out and humanitarian support for the Palestine on the occasion of the “ Day of Palestine”? On this occasion we can collect contributions of our people and all the contributions collected on this occasion may be transferred to Gaza in order to compensate a part of the boycott imposed upon Gaza by the west and supply the required basic needs and establishment of manufacturing centers in order for the Palestine to be relieved from its financial dependence on Israel. This can be turned into a fore running move which may win support of all parties in support of Palestine. Whether our media shall not cover the news of the Gaza tragedy in a proper manner while the western media disregard this tragedy? Still many people of the world are unaware of the harsh situation in Gaza and the tragedies took place in this region. There are many films and reports on the Zionist crimes in Gaza in the Arabic and English networks which may reflect the true news in Gaza, further familiarizing the people of the world with problems of Gaza.

Not intending to interfere in internal affairs of the Palestinian factions and respecting the decision of the Palestinian people, as a frank student who have always followed the Palestinian issues, I wish to state that unfortunately the Palestinian Authority made its biggest mistake by appointing another prime minister for Palestine. This move prepared the ground for Zionists’ misuse of the division among Palestinians and encouraged Israelis to launch the attack against Gaza. Therefore we need to attend to this move by the Palestinian Authority. Therefore with the purpose to maintain the Palestinian unity on the verge of the Palestinian presidential election it would be proper if the President of the Palestinian Authority confesses to his historical mistake in order to change all the Zionist calculations in favor of Palestinians.

In conclusion, thanking organizers of the present conference especially Hojatoleslam Seyyed Aliakbar Mohtashamipour, the distinguished Secretary General of the Conference, who prepared the required ground for exchanging views, and I apologia that I can not be more at your service, and I pray to the Almighty for the success and prosperity of all Palestinians whose today struggles have been unprecedented in the course of history. There is no doubt that the divine promise will be met. If the Karbala blood brought misery to Yazid’s supporters, blood of the Palestinian martyrs will be fruitful for the Palestinian Islamic Revolution and they will be protected vis-à-vis the enemies of the Muslim world. Palestinians have shown that they are following the right path. *Thank you

Esteemed Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran

 

In the Name of God, the Almighty

“Glory be to Him Who made His servant to go on a night from the Sacred Mosque to the remote mosque of which We have blessed the precincts.” (17:1)

At first I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all distinguished participants including heads of representatives and parliaments, political, cultural, scientific and legal personalities, intellectuals and esteemed journalists for accepting the invitation of the Islamic Republic of Iran and participating in this conference which has been hold to support the oppressed people of Palestine.

Distinguished Audience,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Islamic Republic of Iran has the honor to be the host of Forth International Conference in Support of Legitimate Struggles of the People of Palestine against Zionist Occupation. The present conference has special characteristics. This conference has been hold at the time when world has witness recent cruel aggressions of Zionist Regime against Gaza strip and the criminal acts committed by this Regime in killing innocent Palestinians including women and children, destroying economic infrastructures of the people of Palestine, and using illegally the prohibited weapons such as cluster bombs, or the bombs with white phosphorus and light uranium. According the international recognized rules including international human rights and international humanitarian laws, all these acts are included as organized crimes, state-terrorism, and crimes against humanity. The Zionist Regime while continue its economic siege against Gaza Strip, closing the passages and blocking the humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza, continue its crimes and unfortunately no efforts have been made by responsible authorities and those who claim that support human rights, democracy and … for opening the passage and stop the siege.

The pressure of Zionist Regime along with some of the regional and international powers against innocent people of Gaza started immediately after establishment of legal and democratic state of Hamas, and the objective was to destroy people of Palestine. The Zionist Regime which was disappointed  since it did not achieved its objective through economic pressures against people of Gaza, started the multi-lateral military attacks against Gaza Strip so that to destroy the resistance of the people and government of Palestine, but the result was opposite and all their anticipation and people of Palestine once again proved that they will never stop their legitimate struggles in order to defend their rights and fight against brutal aggressions (Zionist), and that they consider resistance as the only choice for reviving this legitimate rights.

Distinguished Audience,

The result of this war just like the 33-day war was the defeat of Zionist and victory of resistance of the people of Palestine and resistance groups. We can say that now Middle East has enter a new area, one of the character of this new Middle East is the power of resistance groups and people of the region vis-à-vis all the false plans. The recent changes in the region indicate this point that resistance groups are the main actors in regional equations. Their role in political equations should be defined.

Unfortunately we have witness that after defeat of Zionist Regime in the 22-day war of Gaza, some of the regional and international powers started to support Zionist Regime in order to achieve their political goals and objectives. The plans such as preventions of arm smuggling to Gaza Strip are one of these ominous conspiracies. How we can accept that Zionist Regime to be equipped with the help of world powers and particularly U.S. with all kinds of non-conventional weapons, but the Palestinian groups are prohibited to receive weapons and arms to combat Zionist Regime in order to defend its legitimate rights. The Palestinian resistance groups, on the basis of international recognized laws and regulations have the right to receive arms in order to defend their legitimate rights. So in this regard the right to receive arms is a just right and undeniable.

After the crimes committed  by Zionist Regime in Gaza, the global community, peace-seeking countries and concerned international associations have heavy responsibility on their shoulders in order to condemn the aggression of Zionist Regime against Gaza and also to be mobilize for reconstruction of Gaza and also to punish the Zionist criminals in the International Court of Justice. We believe that if the international community after Zionist aggression to Lebanon in 2006 would perform its duties appropriately, then this Regime would not have courage to attack Gaza. Therefore it is necessary that global community to act as such so that by condemning and punishing the heads of this Regime it does not repeat the same crimes in future. Holding these kinds of conferences can be considered as a great step for materialization of the above-mentioned goals.

Distinguished Audience,

Under such sensitive circumstances the need to have solidarity among different Palestinian groups for confronting the organized conspiracies of Zionist Regime against fundamental rights of the Palestinian people, are felt more than ever. On this basis the Islamic Republic of Iran while welcoming the agreement reached recently among Palestinian groups, declare its readiness for granting any aid cooperation for strengthening unity and solidarity among Palestinians.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has already declared its position that the long-term crisis of Middle East and establishment of just and stable peace in the region can only be materialize through solving the fundamental issues of crisis and to stop occupation and to grant the right of self-determination to the people of Palestine and to create conditions for the return of refugees to their mother land, and finally to establish independent country with Al-Qods as a capital. Of course all the efforts which had been made till now were faced defeat because the attention was not given to the fundamental roots of crisis.

At the end I extend my gratitude to the Islamic Consultative Assembly for holding this conference and also I thank you all for participating in this conference. We pray to the god Almighty for the freedom and liberation of all occupied territories from occupation of usurper Regime of Israel and we wish success, prosperity, loftiness and victory for the people of Palestine and all freedom-loving people of the world.*

Speech presented by His Excellency Dr. Farouk Ghodomi *

Head of Political Section of Palestine liberation Organization

 

In the Name of God’ the Compassionate, the merciful

His Excellency Dr. Ali Larigani’ Esteemed Head of Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran,

Distinguished Audience, 

Dear Brothers’ from different countries of the world who support struggles of Palestinians,

Salamo Alaikom Va Rahmatolah Va Barakato

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for holding this conference for supporting the people of Gaza strip. It is true people of Palestine could defeat all the strategies of Zionist regime. The Zionist regime was defeated in a surprise attack. This regime was defeated in the war of 1967 too. At present the war still continue and the missiles of resistance groups have reached near Tel Aviv the enemy expanded its aggressions all the time and only within short period of time were obliged to withdraw from occupied territories. The resistance destroyed all the conspiracies of enemies. At present century we witness continuous victories of resistance groups.

People of Palestine paid heavy casualties and damages for the revolution of 1965. When our late revolutionary brother martyr Yaser Arafat who was head of Palestine Liberation Organization fired first gun for starting struggle, then some of the states tried to suppress this revolution but were not succeeded.

They siege Palestine and brave people of Lebanon for 87 days in Beirut capital of Lebanon, but finally they were defeated. They send their military forces to the eastern part of Lebanon. We even entered in to war of Al Karamah. In this war which took place in 1968, about 93 Palestinians were martyred. So with regards to all these struggles and efforts of Palestinian people and later on emergence of Intifada in 1987, we emphasize on this point that we have entered the era of victory. We have not gathered here to say that our people had suffered and responded. No we have not come for this. But we have come to say that this people have taken step in the epoch of victory. Every Muslim has the duty to support people of Palestine in his deed and action and prayers. Whoever (being Muslim) is being in Iran or any where else and say that the issue of Palestine is not related to him, then he should wait for hell. The shah of Iran, who was friend of Israel, was collapsed and there was great revolution in Iran. It was and is always an honor for me to met Imam Khomeini in Paris. He told me at that time that all these selfish and arrogant people like shah will be obliged to leave Iran soon.

I recall that once I met with the foreign minister of Belgium. At that time the National Assembly in 1975 adopted a plan regarding struggle being sectional. My colleague told Mr. Simoni, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belgium that: " if my father was alive he would be the member of Palestine cabinet and if he would came to know that I agree with this sectional program, most probably he would call me traitor". The foreign Minister of Belgium said:" if your father was alive and would see you are sitting next to me, would envy you".

I said:" Mr. Minister I remember you wanted us to seat next to each other to talk and negotiate but I want to tell you something that if it was not because of arm conflicts of Palestinians, then you never negotiated with us”. What I want to say is that this is true face and image of deceived Europe. They presented us certain useless political solutions. Some of us would be cheated. Today we witness that Israel through creating settlements in West Bank is trying to further expand its occupation and aggression in West Bank. Today there are more than 489 zionist settlements in West Bank. That’s why we should start action from West Bank. This action should be started with establishment of national Parliament of Palestine and not with conciliation and negotiation. I have told many times that all these dialogs move toward establishment of local government which is not recognized by Palestinian groups and people. What kind of negotiation is that? All the negotiations should be perform inside P.L.O the self-governing administration is legal administration and do not have any place among people and the world. Thus I firmly oppose self-governing administration. I told my brothers who entered in to election process that there is certain issue that you have to recognize them. One of these issues is to recognize the conclusion of Oslo treaty which asks for recognizing of Zionist regime and to stop resistance and nullify all the agreements concluded among us. They did not accepted what I said. I, as a secretary of central committee of Fath Movement, disagree with some of our brothers. Palestine is much more precious rather than certain groups. Please pay attention to this point that Mr. Jamal Abdol Nasser said that we are ready to negotiate with you only regarding Sina. He said "no" to their request. Then Anderson said "yes, that this is your right to negotiate on behalf of all Arab stats". Abdol Naser said: "yes". But Anderson said: "our main condition is that all Israeli ships should be able to pass from Suisse channel." The late Abdul Naser said: "Mr. Anderson please tell others that there is no problem that the ships pass from Suisse channel, but before that the Palestine issue should be solve". These were leaders who were very intelligent and know how to change the struggle scene to the interests of the Islamic Ummah. This is an honor for us that since beginning of this revolution they always supported Palestine issue. The western powers want to make conciliation. If they were right we would do so. But it is not correct. The people of Palestine have various experiences even before signing Oslo treaty. As a result of conciliation negotiations Mr. Ishaq Rubin was assassinated and Mr. Ishaq Rubin was poisoned. They do not believe to any agreement. They wanted to promote victory from 52% to 92% but were not successful. Then Mr. Netanyahu went to UN and said: "withdrawal from Palestine territory even for one inch is very difficult for us. Because the history of this territory go back to our generations.

So do you think recognizing this regime is just"? The temporary historians believed that in the past the Jews did not enter Palestine. One of these historians is Mr. "Heretsok". He said in Telaviv University that "Israel should rewrite its history. In our history there is no trace of Israel in Palestine. We studied for 75 years and did not find any traces of Israel in Palestine".

Therefore we can say that existence of Israel is nothing rather than deception. In 1924 Mr. Wiseman along with Mr. "Hakham Ma'am" entered Palestine. During dinner reception he told to audience: “I like Hertzel thought that this territory is made of desert and marsh, but I saw children and orange trees. If we take this territory from this nation then we have committed great oppression." In his writings Wiseman said: "those who have problem with Palestinians should return back to their first places". In 1905 a committee was established by Cursed Britain. The country that has root in all disasters. This committee was held by then prime minister. During his speech he claimed that:" During two years whatever had been given to Palestine, were taken back from this country." He continued that: "the European countries should establish a state near Suisse channel for a nation who is stranger to this territory. The Europe should support this state."

Dear Brothers, I do not want to take your time any longer. Of course there are lots to say. The national unity is a must. National unity does not mean that we should have differences in length and width. But there is one reality in the world that no revolution could be successful in the world without unity and solidarity. Of course there are differences of views among Palestinian groups. Thus I should recall that we must try to forget all the differences. After ending of Bush epoch we hope the situation became better. We should never hope that United States stay next to us. Once Regan former US president told me: "Israel is strategic state for us outside NATO". United States will never deny its interests for us. If we want that United State obey us we should put Zionist under pressure. You should know that we have good opportunity. This opportunity dose not mean to use Islamic and Arabic Armies. We request you to fully support resistance. We Palestinians are ready to sacrifice ourselves from generation to generation. The God Almighty blesses all the martyrs. Abo Alteyb the martyr Palestinian poet says: “I take all my strength and power for the struggle".

In this way either I will live in which my friends will be happy or I will be martyr in which my enemies will be angry. So my brother if you want to die with dignity this is the only way. *

Speech presented by His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani , *

Head of the Islamic Consultative Assembly

 

In The Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Distinguished Audience

Honorable intellectuals,

Esteemed Heads of Parliamentarian Delegation from Islamic Countries

Now that we have almost reached to the end of our meeting, I would like to extend my gratitude as well as those of the representatives of the Islamic Consultative Assembly to all of you.

I thank you for your sensitivity with regard to the issue of Palestine and for your serious participation in all the concerned discussions.

We should give the absolute right to all the brave people of Palestine to curse Zionist regime for all the crimes, cruelties and atrocities committed against Palestinians, because what had happened in Palestine is really very rare in the history of humanity.

They had forcefully exiled people from their territories and motherlands and left millions of displaced and refugees living in occupied territories and violated the legitimate rights of Palestinians and at the same time the Palestinians had been called as terrorist and then they call for peace in deceitful manner. This situation has created double deprivation for the people of Palestine. Unfortunately there are those who repeat very realistically the same words in the region.

The question is under such cruel circumstances what peace they are talking about? Peace with whom? And as a result of materialization of this peace what issue will be solved?

If the issue before us regarding Palestine is to exile and displace forcefully people of Palestine from their own territory so that to create an imaginary country, then peace will be a response to what? Is it a response to cruelty against Palestinians or a response to the need of Zionist regime? In fact all the theories of peace which were presented either by Americans or Europeans or sometimes even Arabs, have all tried to make an scapegoat under "valuable word of peace”, in order to respond to the need of Zionist regime rather than to the cruelties and crimes committed against deprived and oppressed people of Palestine by this regime.

If the issue at hand is as such, then we can say since Oslo treaty various theories have been presented and the last one was BUSH PLAN in Annapolis. Which one of these theories was materialized? All these theories were decorated with beautiful shape and voice of peace and various mechanisms were used in order to materialize them on the basis of appropriate conditions. So the question is why none of them were successful?

The root of lack of success of mercenaries or great powers lie in negligence of the rights of one nation which have been repeated again and again by some of the countries of the region.

In spite of paying respect for the rights of people, they erased the unjust issue before them and wrote another one similar to the first one and while holding various meetings and conferences tried to make further analysis for their own issue at hand rather than granting the legitimate rights of people of Palestine to them.

But this is not the tradition of history that by erasing the issue before us, the real and the fact issue to be disappear completely, but rather this time the just and real issue will be raise by the spirit of uprising and rebellion. They repeatedly say why there is violence in Palestine and we should end the violence.

Apart from deceitfulness which lay in all their statements, the crimes were always committed and are still committing by Israel. The question is whether you have left any choice rather than fighting the violence of Israel and international negligence of the rights of the people of Palestine? Which one of the peace promises were materialized?

Oslo treaty was based on two elements:

Establishment of self-rule government of Palestine

Performance of negotiations for solving other issues such as: AI-Qods, refugees, settlements, water and ... etc.

According to this treaty it seemed that all the territories of the West Bank that means about 90 percent of it, were supposed to be given back to Palestinians.  So what happened? Were these territories given to Palestinians?

Oslo treaty faced defeat because Israel did not fulfill its obligations.

So by verifying all these treaties under various theories such as peace-seeking, what was achieved was nothing rather than further conflict in the region. In fact by studying the former situations we come to know that all these methods and theories were vague and useless.

Today we must adopt new methods based on justice and reality. But these methods are not based on the organized propaganda Maneuver of America and certain European countries, who are trying to act as mediators and keep the field busy in order that Israel continues its crimes and cruelties. Just like the crimes committed in Gaza and some powers wanted to act as mediators to put Gaza under tender, but Palestinian people and Hamas responded to them very strongly.

According to Karl Marx:

"History will always be repeated first as a tragedy and then as a comic play".

The leaders of Zionist regime and America should take lesson from the past. They should come to know that now is not the time for repeating massacre, genocide and plunder. The conditions for repeating the massacres such as Deyr yasin and mosque of AI-Hanin and hundreds of other similar cases can no longer exist. Their cruel and brutal behaviors during 33-Day war in Lebanon and 22- Day war in Gaza have brought no achievements for them rather than shame in the international scene.

The Islamic countries by supporting the Palestine, which is an Islamic duty, they have in fact supported their national security and interests and thus they should not consider their act only in the interests of Palestinians. In fact under the safe shadow of Hizbollah, Hamas and other groups of Jahad  (Islamic struggle), the Zionist regime of Israel and America are not any more in the position of arrogance or giving orders or repeating their attitudes of past. But it will not be deleted from the history as Marbergenisky in his book called Geopolink said:

"The big countries of the region should become smaller."

And after their adventures in Afghanistan and Iraq, they decided to make distinguished and disunion among certain Arab states. If the Islamic countries do not united with each others vis-à-vis Israel and do not support Palestine resistance together, then undoubtedly under such circumstances while Israel would be so powerful, naturally they would have same disastrous situation. In this regard the recent critic is the verdict issued against Sudan. This act has been taken to put further Pressure over Sudan. However our Sudanese friends know very well that this act of American and some Western countries is a kind of further escape and so they should do exactly what the Palestinian resistance forces did vis-à-vis Israel, that means enter into brave resistance. On the other hand in this conference we will announce that we are next to our Sudanese brothers and we will give our support to the progressive position of this country. During human rights discussions, the America's cases in the discussions related to human rights are so shameless particularly with regard to Abu Goreyb, Guantanamo and supporting Israel in its criminal acts … etc, that they can’t claim any other thing.

We have not yet seen any changes in America's behavior regarding all the Muslims of the world particularly Palestinians, but they use their own language.

So the first recommendation to all the Islamic countries is to maintain their unity and solidarity and do not think that the west will consider their interests. Their friendship will continue until they have the Islamic countries under their hands in order to gain interest from them. Otherwise these are the same countries that during the first and second world war in the 21st  century left more than 4000 human casualties and with the same spirit of genocide they occupied Iraq and killed more than 800 thousands Iraqis. Therefore by studying the history we come to know the interests of Islamic nations depends on convergence, solidarity, unity and deepening ties with each others.

Our next suggestion to our Palestinian brothers:

Unfortunately the international relations in spite of its peace-seeking appearance have an arrogant entity. Your victory depends on resistance and struggle. While you should be continuously aware, and while you will go for Jihad, you will achieve the victory. In this way, you will have very loyal friends and supporters whose friendship and support will be much stronger than vague negotiations of certain countries.

Plato said:

"The shape of life is based on the men of wisdom and honor and not cruelty and force.”

The unity among all Palestinian forces is based on dignity of their resistance. As you have seen during the recent years how resistance of Lebanon was appreciated and similarly how the resistance in Gaza was praised.

This valuable capital has been created in the shadow of resistance and you are aware that behind the table of negotiations performed by arrogant powers nothing would be achieved. As in the case of the nuclear issue of the Islamic Republic of Iran, we did the same thing and we powerfully resist maintaining our technological power. However America and West repeated the same thing regarding resistance in spite of their defeat, and still are talking about war and victory. They are like a little rooster which has been defeated but still cry for victory.

Tehran conference which was held with the cooperation of the Islamic Consultative Assembly is the symbol of unity of all Islamic governments and peoples and considers Palestine issue as the center of sharing of thoughts for all the Islamic countries. All the Palestinian groups can enjoy and receive the support of all Muslims for their resistance strategy.

During the two days conference of Tehran, serious discussions and talks were hold in support of the noble people of Gaza and reconstruction of this territory.

Today all the Islamic countries should take seriously this very import humanitarian issue since Zionist regime has started a very dishonest game.

Tehran conference considers opening of roads and passages for granting humanitarian aid to Palestinian people as an unconditional necessity. This is their legitimate rights. Thus the Islamic Republic of Iran requested all the countries of the region to take serious steps in this regard and do not make any negligence regarding this issue and at the same time be careful so that the West does not put their prestige under question for their own interest.

Tehran conference seriously condemned the recent adventure of America and certain powerful countries of the world for the case of our brother country of Sudan and considers it as another conspiracy for creating problem for this country. So this conference granted its full fledged support to the brother country of Sudan.

 

Tehran conference shall follow up the issue of Palestine until realization of the legitimate rights of the people of Palestine and shall create a fact-finding committee in this regard.

Once again I extend my warm and sincere gratitude to all of you and I do hope the next conference of Palestine shall be held in Al-Qods, AI Sharif with the state of Palestine( and resistance) as the host country.

I do hope to see you again. *

Dear Brother’ His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani’

Speaker of the Islamic Consultative Assembly of the Islamic Republic of Iran

It is great pleasure for me that on behalf of the participants in this conference in support of the people of Palestine and Gaza, to express our gratitude to His Excellency Dr. Ali Larijani and the leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Certainly the relations between Iran and Arabs are based on cultural, geographical and historical relations and there is no power that can destroy these relations. This is a relation based on struggling positions and joint issues.

While the time has come to leave Tehran, the revolutionary city with lots of dignity, we deem it necessary to express our gratitude for the warm hospitality and holding successfully this conference. In this conference very good atmosphere was created for making important decisions for further strengthening our relations in the field of struggle against Zionist project. In fact any effort for changing the struggle of Islamic world against Israel as the struggle among Islamic countries will definitely face defeat and will have negative results for all Muslims. The relations between Iran and Arabs shall always remain stable in the light of Islam and history and culture of Islamic struggles.

Greeting to the Islamic Republic of Iran .Thank you *

We saluted all the participates. We do say that this Conference was only a solidarity Conference, but we say that you are partner of the people of Palestine in this struggle. You are partner of Palestinians, in realization of refugee's right to return to their motherland and freedom of holy lands of Palestine. We do hope that there will be a day we can pray together in Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Many of our Palestinian brothers were surrounded and siege and those whose houses were destroyed in Gaza told me: whenever they watch the people's demonstrations and uprising in supporting the resistance of people of Gaza against Zionist enemy, and shout together that: "swear to God, we never leave you alone" then we feel further dignity and honor.

You, who support Palestine, are manifestation of this holy verse of Qoran:

“Surely this Islam is your religion, one religion (only), and I am your Lord, therefore serve Me” (8:92)

You materialized this holy concept of Qoran that we are integrated and united nation. Our resistance has further strengthened because of the positions adopted by you. So I whish to congratulate all of you and the Islamic Republic of Iran for all the steps you had taken for Palestine.

Once again I sincerely thank Dr. Ali Larijani for holding this Conference.*

Declaration

Of

The Fourth International Conference

“In Support of Palestine, Symbol of Resistance; Gaza, Victim of Crime”

 (Tehran Declaration)

 

In the Name of God’ The Compassionate, the Merciful

We, the participants at the Fourth International Conference in support of Palestine captioned “International Conference in Support of Palestine, Symbol of Resistance; Gaza, Victim of Crime” which was held at the invitation of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, in Tehran on March 4th and 5th, and with the participation of parliamentary speakers and delegations, Islamic theologians, thinkers and resistance fighters from various countries of the world with the aim and objective of providing all-round support and backing to the people of Palestine and their heroic resistance against the Zionist regime, declare that:

- Congratulating the glorious victory of the Palestine resistance in the 22-Day Gaza War,

- Confirming that the large scale attack launched by the Zionist regime on the Gaza Strip has resulted in the organized, extensive and blatant violation of International humanitarian rights and International human rights especially with regard to the Fourth Geneva Convention and intensification of the humanitarian crises and weakening of national, regional and international efforts in support of the people of Palestine,

- Supporting the struggles of the people of Palestine in obtaining their natural, explicit and recognized rights to self-determination, formation of a unity government of Palestine in all territories of occupied Palestine as well as the undeniable rights of the Palestinian refugees and displaced persons to return to their homes and ancestral lands,

 

 -Commemorating the memory of Palestinian martyrs especially    those martyred in the recent Zionist attack against Gaza;

 

  Agreed as follows:

 

1-Believing that all regional and international initiatives undertaken in the past decades have ended in failure because of lack of consideration of the principal causes of the crises, we emphasize holding a referendum with participation of all individuals who are rightfully related to Palestinian land be it Muslims, Christians or Jews and in particular all homeless Palestinians in determining the type of their regime,

 

2-Palestinian issue is the main far reaching issue of the Islamic Ummah and on this basis all Muslims, Arabs and freedom loving individuals of the world are responsible to unify all capacities and possibilities in order to give it the deserved priority and refrain from any withdrawal from the defined positions in this respect and  raising any unnecessary issues which damage the Palestinian cause. 

 

3-We emphasize that the major enemy of the Islamic Ummah is the racist Zionist regime and the Islamic Ummah is responsible to adjust its policies based on the realities and strongly stand against the deceitful plans for introducing an enemy irrespective of the Zionist enemy deviating the right path of the Islamic Ummah and preoccupying them with an unreal enemy and other unnecessary issues in favor of the Zionist regime.

 

4- We strongly condemn the brutal actions of the Zionist regime in the massacre of Palestinian civilians particularly women, children and the elderly; the destruction of the economic infrastructure of the people of Palestine; the organized and targeted assassination and  detention of fighters of Palestine Resistance that reached to a crescendo in the recent Gaza War.

 

5- We condemn unconditional and continued support of the United States of America for the Zionist regime and its obvious crimes and we announce that full commitment of the US president from Israeli security is defending state – sponsored terrorism, wrong doing and using force and supporting massacre of hundreds of Palestinian men, women and children during the 22 day Gaza war and is a continuation of the wrong direction adopted by Mr. Bush and also is in contradiction of the announced policy of change

 

6- Recognizing the natural and legitimate rights of the Palestinian nation to stand against occupation and the fact that resistance is the only practical and efficient way for restoration of the Palestinian rights we call all parliaments of the world to adopt required national rules and regulations in all out support of the struggle of the Palestinian people.

 

7- We call upon the international community to take urgent steps for ending the three year old  blockade of the Gaza Strip and opening of the land, air and sea routes; And  call upon the Arab League to shoulder responsibility and implement the its resolutions on ending the Gaza blockade; And call Egypt to permanently open Rafah crossings for free traffic of individuals and goods between Egypt and Gaza reminding the Egyptian Government that all negative consequences of closing the crossing remains with this country. 

 

8-We express our full support for the struggles taking place for realization of the Palestinian national unity and reconstruction and activity of the PLO based on the previous agreements among all Palestinian factions and the political plan which recognizes the right of Palestinians to resist against occupation and liberate their territory.

 

9- We strongly condemn all actions and plans of the Zionist regime for ‘Judaization’ of Al-Quds and destruction of its Islamic and Christian sanctities and sites; changing the composition and weave of the population, ongoing construction of townships, repeated threats to demolish Al-Aqsa Mosque and ‘Qubbaah As-Sakhrah’ and undertaking drilling operations beneath it as well as construction and development of townships for Zionist settlers and building the racist wall in the West Bank which is a manifest symbol of Apartheid and flouts the viewpoint of the International Court of Justice at the Hague and the resolutions of the General Assembly of the United Nations. We also express our abhorrence vis-à-vis destruction of 88 houses in the Bostan Qods district. 

10-We strongly condemn the inhuman arrest and detention of thousands of Palestinians detainees languishing in prisons of the Zionist regime, in particular of Dr. Aziz Ad-Dawaik, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Palestine and 42 members of parliament and ministers of the elected Palestinian Government; and likewise, leaders and freedom-fighters of resistance groups and demand the unconditional and immediate release of all of them.

11- We call all governments, parliaments and responsible international bodies in fulfilling their legal and international obligations for putting an end to the culture of absence of retribution to take necessary actions to file lawsuits against the perpetrators and collaborators of the war crimes committed in Palestine and to prosecute them in competent national and international courts of law. 

 

12- We stress the necessity to conduct an investigation about the deployment of banned weapons and ammunitions and its effect on human beings and the environment as well as investigate the accumulation of weapons of mass destruction and nuclear arsenals by relevant international organizations, fact-finding missions and autonomous governmental organizations and call upon the competent national and international courts of law to look into and follow up these crimes. 

 

13- We appreciate measures taken by the Judiciary of the Islamic Republic of Iran for prosecution of the Zionist criminals and preparing filing indictment in this respect and investigating the crimes for prosecution of the perpetrators, and those who ordered the said crimes and call authorities of different Muslim and freedom loving countries to take the same measures regarding the Zionist criminals.

15- In line with the avowed aim of helping the Palestinian people, we call  the Islamic and freedom-loving governments and nations of the world to boycott Zionist companies and goods; to severe every form of political, economic, cultural, sporting and media relations with the usurper Zionist regime. Likewise, we call upon the parliaments of countries to sanction necessary laws in this connection and in case of having established parliamentary friendship committees with the Knesset of the Zionist regime, to immediately dissolve these committees and severe all their parliamentary relations with this regime.

 

16- While welcoming the academic boycott of the Zionist regime by some of the universities of the world, we call all scientific and academic institutions of the world to join the academic boycott of the Zionist regime in reaction to the ongoing crimes of this regime. 

 

17- We express our appreciation for the memorable world public opinion for their support to the people of Gaza and for the prominent role of the ‘Ulema’ Islamic theologians, scholars and the media in garnering support for the people of Palestine and for their condemnation of the crimes perpetrated by the Zionist regime.

18- While expressing our appreciation for the stances of countries supporting the Palestine cause and resistance in the course of the 22-Day Gaza War, we condemn the policies of the big powers especially the United States of America and some of its allies vis-à-vis the genocide of Palestinians in Gaza.

21- Taking into consideration the current sensitive situation we stress on the necessity of unity of the Islamic ‘Ummah’ and abstaining from exaggerating existing in sectarian, ethnic and political differences.

 

22- While equating Zionism with racism, we underscore the resolution of the Durban Conference in 2001 on the necessity to revive the Resolution no. 3379 of the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization and on the necessity to re-endorse past resolutions at the forthcoming sessions to be convened in Geneva (Durban 2) in April 2009.

 

23-In order to follow-up the resolutions of the Conference and realization of its objectives, we announce the formation of a Higher Follow-up Committee headed by the Secretary General comprising 10 persons.  This committee shall follow up all recommendations and resolutions of the Conference and it shall report the results of its actions to the permanent secretariat of the Conference in Tehran and to the later conferences.

 

24- Declaring “Youm an-Nakbah” (Day of Catastrophe) as a global day of homecoming, we call upon the Higher Follow-up Committee to organize annually, a series of popular, political, cultural and promotional events and activities in order to facilitate conditions for the return of all Palestinian refugees to their homes and land of their birth; and to follow-up registration of this event in the calendar of global events of the United Nations. Likewise, within the framework of facilitating conditions for return of Palestinian refugees, we call upon the legal bodies of Palestine to issue Palestinian passports for all refugees residing abroad.

 27-By paying our due respects to the lofty soul of His Holiness Imam Khomeini and emphasizing commemoration of the last Friday of the blessed month of Ramadan which he proclaimed as ‘World Quads Day’, we express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the intensive efforts of His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader, the government and people of Iran in supporting the aspiration of Palestine; and in particular, for organization of the Fourth International Conference in Support of Palestine by the Islamic Consultative Assembly.

Joint Message Presented by Students Committee of

Secretariat of International Conference

And

Students Parties and Political Associations

In support of Intifada of Palestine

 

In the Name of God, the Almighty

By considering brutal aggressions and illegal occupation of Palestine territories and establishing a false and illegal state of Zionist for more than almost 60years;

Also by taking note that the atrocities and brutal aggression of usurper regime of Zionist have been more and more evidence and obvious at international scene. And now that all the alerted peoples and governments of the world, from South America to South Asia, have come to this understanding that Israel is like a cancer tumor and is very dangerous for human society;

The Student Committee of the Secretariat of International Conference in support of Intifada of Palestine, with the cooperation of certain parties, and political and civil associations of Iran and with cooperation and coordination of brave Iranian students, once again at the threshold of almost four decade from the victory of the Islamic revolution, just like ever and on the basis of sustainable movement of the people of Iran, condemned all the crimes committed by usurper regime of Israel and very firmly emphasize on full fledged support of the states, I.G.O.s and N.G.O.s from oppressed, justice-seeking and brave people of Palestine till realization of achieving of their legitimate rights and collapse and destruction of usurper regime of Israel. In this regard certain mechanisms are recommended as follows:

Certain characteristics of Palestine issue in the process of history:

Since 1917 till 1949, about 78% of Palestine territories were given to the Zionists either by the military government of Britain in Palestine or by exiling and displacing Palestinians from their own land.   More than 750 000 Palestinians were forcefully exiled from their own mother land during this period of time.

Since the occupation of Palestine on 1947 till now, more than 5 millions Palestinians have been displaced. While on 1947 and before displacement of Palestinians, still 70% of Palestinians were Muslims and Christians and 94% of Palestine territories were under authority of non-Jews.

Zionist regime is not implementing the resolutions of Security Council which indicate obvious violation of historical rights of the people of Palestine in sovereignty over their land, and according to these resolutions, they did not withdraw from these occupied territories during the war of 1967.

Resolution No. 242 of U.N very clearly refer to the violation of the historical rights of Palestinians and according to this resolution the usurper regime had to withdraw from the lands which occupied during the 6- day war of 1967; but Israel did not act according this resolution.

Since 1967, the usurper regime of Zionist has always fulfilled its own policies and has destroyed more than 18000 Palestinians’ houses in the West Bank of Jordan and thus nearly 70000 Palestinians were wounded and homeless.

Israel dose not let the Palestinian return back to their motherland and this is obvious violation of resolution No. 194 of U.N, in which recognize the right of Palestinians for return to the occupied lands. The resolution which likes other resolutions was again rejected by Israel.

Zionist regime in spite of international oppositions, according its own method denied the verdict of International Court of Justice on 2004 regarding “stopping the construction of wall” and still is continuing the construction.

All the above mentioned issues are a little story about cruel and illegal actions of Zionist regime which have been performed during all these 60 years and still continuing particularly in Gaza strip. Undoubtedly there are much more cases regarding violation of International laws and world declarations by Israel.

    In continuation following suggestions are presented:

To refer Palestine issue as a common problem of the world of Islam and human society and to emphasize that Israel is serious threat against international peace and security. This fact has already been proved during Gaza war in which many innocent people including women and children were massacred and hospitals and schools were bombarded.

To request firmly all the freedom-seeking states of the world to cut off their military, political and commercial relations with usurper regime of Israel and to criticize the shameless supports of certain powers from hateful actions of Zionist regime.

To condemn anti-humanitarian and discriminatory policies and crimes of Zionist regime particularly during the process of Gaza war and also to condemn all the high ranking authorities and commander of chief of military of Israel during legal procedure.

To take global measures in order to oblige Israel to respect and implement international laws including the right for return of Palestinians to their motherlands.

At the end once again we emphasize on our support from honorable and dear people of Palestine particularly oppressed people of Gaza and we pray to the God Almighty for their victory and freedom and also wish success and prosperity for all the freedom-seeking people of the world.*

Message of His Excellency Shikh yossuf Gharzavi*

Head of World Union of Muslim Scholars

In the Name of God

 

His Excellency Dr. Larijani’ Honorable Speaker of the Islamic Consultative

 

May I first of all express my gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for its efforts in organizing this Conference, and for taking practical measures to support Palestinians and help resolve the Palestinian issue.

I also wish to thank Your Excellency for inviting me to participate in the 4th International conference in Support of Palestine as symbol of resistance and Gaza, the victim of Crime. May I apologize to Your Excellency for not being able to participate in the forthcoming meeting?

The theme of the Conference as it is seen in its title is about the ongoing situation in Palestine: resistance against criminals and supporting the victims of crimes. The title also draws attention to the main issue of Palestine and its manifestations in Gaza.

Palestinian Resistance and Defusing the Zionist plan

In my opinion, the Zionist plan, though being widely supported by the arrogant powers, has so far failed in the fulfillment of its sinister goals intended to suppress the Palestinian people, put an end to the Palestinian issue and bring Islamic and Arab nations to their knees.

By the grace of Allah the Almighty, the Zionist plan failed as a result of incessant resistance and victims of the Palestinian people generation after generation, and the supports provided by Arab and Islamic nations.

The plan failed at a time when certain governments of Islamic and Arab countries have washed their hands off the Palestinian issue and turned their back to the Palestinian aspirations.

To prevent the realization of the Zionist criminal schemes, it is essentially important to lend support to all legitimate methods of resistance against the occupiers and stand against all those who intend to weaken or frustrate the heroic struggles of the people. As a matter of fact the entire Palestinian land, not only Gaza is the theatre of the fight against occupation. By gradual occupation of the West Bank and al-Qods al-Sharif, the Zionist occupiers have been seeking to eliminate historical sites and cultural heritage of this region.

Al-Bostan is the best witness to the conspiracies of the Zionist regime. The Zionists have planned to completely eliminate al-Bostan neighborhood with its eighty eight residential homes and its 1500 dwellers.

This is a horrific and dangerous crime and the Muslim Ummah must stand against these moves.

I call for the formation of special  international legal institutions to bring the Zionist regime to justice for occupying every inch of the Palestinian land

2- Resistance in Gaza and Continuation of Crimes against its Population

Crimes against Gaza and its population is part of the war against popular resolve and determination. The war continues and the Zionist regime has failed to carry out its conspiracies, therefore it is now trying to achieve its goals at the negotiation tables and through the imposition of its conditions related to the billions of dollars of aid for reconstruction and relief efforts.

The aid and reconstruction programs in Gaza must be performed directly without any political conditions. Relief efforts for victims should not be turned into a reward for the criminals, or a means to cover their crimes.

Setting up Gaza holocaust museum in Fakhura School or in the surrounding areas will be the beginning of building of a series of Palestine holocaust museums.

By these museums, the sufferings of Palestinians and day-to-day crimes of the occupiers over the past century can be displayed for the world and for the next generations.

Aslan online Institute, in spite of its limited resources, has also established Gaza Holocaust Museum for the world media. The Muslim Ummah today needs to see their museum practically and closely.

The international community must support all research works concerning the crimes of the Zionists in Gaza, as well as the efforts intended to bring the perpetuators before justice, thus preventing the Zionist regime to use relief and reconstruction efforts offered to the widows, orphans and to the patients as a cover to hide its crimes.

So long as impunity prevails and the criminals are immune from punishments and they are armed to the teeth, they will be invited to massacre these innocent people, as they did it repeatedly in the past century.

May Allah bestow upon you and Muslim Ummah ever increasing success, and I hope this Conference will lake effective steps o help the Palestinian people and all oppressed people, and increase efforts for the elimination of oppression world wide.*

 

 

Message presented by H.E. Mahmmoud Mash'hadani *

Former Head of the Parliament of Representatives of Iraq

 

In the Name of God, the compassionate, the Merciful

I express my gratitude to the Islamic consultative Assembly for holding this very great Conference with the aim to support the Palestinian resistance and to review the legal and criminal fields of crimes and genocide committed in Gaza strip.

The world of Islam is facing with very sensitive challenges and some of the parties, groups and governments and those who possess nuclear arms, are trying to intensify these challenges.

Unfortunately we Muslims have gone to face these challenges with the culture of segregation and oppression. Gaza has been damaged not as a result of Israel attack but because of the disputes and conflicts among Muslims. So in the light of these challenges the following phrases quoted from holy prophet (P.B.U.H) who presents 3 strategies, is significant:

“The prophet said: Muslim brother toot kavi blood Bzmthm adnahm are hands on others.”

These 3 strategies are as follows:

The strategy of defeating losses like the measure taken by the prophet (P.B.U.H) in Gazva war. As the holy prophet did not want to fight with forces of Rome but only wanted to make the enemy scare and frighten.

The strategy of jihad. For this strategy there should be unity, solidarity and readiness. All the Islamic victories were achieved on the bases of this strategy.

The strategy of defense: if any boarder of the Islamic country went under attack and aggression of enemy, it is duty of all Muslims to defend these boarders.

All these 3 strategies could be achieved only if there is no dispute and conflict inside Islamic community.

“And do not quarrel for then you will be weak in hearts and your power will depart” (8:46)

The reason for all these disputes arise in the Islamic community is as a result of lack of the role of fundamentalist scholars.

Therefore the solution is in this ideology that: the sun of guidance only shines in dankness". Why we do not act like European who avoid ethnic and racial disputes and conflicts or boarder conflicts. The European countries had faced all these conflicts in the past. But Europeans not only took revenge, but in fact created a common market and common defense strategy based on these conflicts. We do not take any measure or we do not think at all about security of Islamic boarders. So if we do not take appropriate measures in this regard then how we could face the challenges as the holy prophet (P.B.U.H) did in Gazva war.

On this basis, we can say the only solution for facing all these challenges is to create a common integrated economic strategy in the Islamic world so that the world of Islam under its shadow changes to common poles of economy. By saying above-mentioned we mean that unity of Islamic world vis-à-vis the arrogant powers of West are necessary. The Islamic unity should be created on the basis of economic, political and defense fields and not only on the basis of theory of bringing religions close to each other. *

Message Presented by H.E. Mr. Ahmad Ben Bella*

Former president of Algeria

 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

His Excellency Mr. seyyed Aliakbar Mohtashamipour’ Esteemed Secretary General of the Conference in Support of the Intifada of the people Palestine,

I would like to thanks Mr. Mohtashemipour for inviting me to participate in the 4th International conference "in support of Palestine symbol of resistance, Gaza victim of Crime".

This conference have been hold for some of the summit leaders, scholars and pundits in order to review the atrocities, attacks and tragic event of Gaza which have been continued for 22 days by Zionist regime against Palestinians and during all these days the Israel had used prohibited mass destructive weapons, while faced with silence of the world. We condemn the use of all these weapons for supporting human rights and self defense.

The silence of International community and its indifference vis-à-vis adoption of certain resolutions in order to oblige the enemy to stop its crimes, has in fact led to further encouragement of enemy to repeat its brutal acts.

It is duty of this conference that not only on the basis of religious duty but rather humanitarian duty, to adopt certain resolutions to stop Zionist aggressions against people of Gaza and emphasize that peace operation is not a maneuver that Israel takes in its hand, but rather it is a political act which should pave the ground for future in order to materialize and assure justice, freedom and good life for all human beings.

Gaza, after this crime dose not need any more to long negotiations but it needs a common position to be adopted in order to reconstruct those areas which have been destroyed by enemy, and to help people who lost their houses during bombardment and to respect their dignity.

Our people in Gaza need pharmaceutical drugs, food, and cloths. Also the conference has to take certain decisions in order to open air, land and marine passages in Gaza so that people of Gaza are able to enjoy noble life and to be free to communicate with other countries, and to fulfill their economic needs that Israel had already destroyed.

The Zionist regime had taken step towards destroying all the international peace operations and international laws and thus has threatened peace and security of all the countries of the region and Middle East.

Dear Brother and Esteemed Secretary General,

It was really necessary to participate in this conference in order to support our sisters and brothers in Gaza. But unfortunately I faced with unexpected event that I could not participate, so please accept my apology.

I wish success for year Excellency and Conference.*

 

 

 

Message of National Freedom Movement of Lebanon

Distinguished Brothers,

With greetings, I would like to extend to all of you my gratitude as well as those of signatories of this paper for holding this conference in support of the people of Palestine.

The names of the signatories of this paper are as follows:

Dr. nabil Naghola, member of Lebanon parliament and member of parliamentarian fraction for amendment and change headed by Colonel Michel Aoun.

Engineer Salim Aoun, member of Lebanon parliament and member of parliamentarian fraction for amendment and change headed by Colonel Michel Aoun.

Dr. Nasif Ghazi responsible of Public Dept. and Propaganda of National Movement headed by colonel Michel Aoun.

Attorney General Emil Rahmeh, head of Al – Tadhamon (Solidarity) party of Lebanon and member of Association of national – Christian Negotiations of Lebanon.

Palestine Issue…..and its Destiny:

Since 1948 the Palestine issue had always been the main conflict between Arabs and Israel. But the results and signs of this conflict became evidence for all at the beginning of 20th Century, when Zionist Congress was held in BAL (Swiss) in 1897 and following that Theodor Hertzel, the founder of Zionist new movement talk about his willingness to establish a country for Jews in Palestine. Then in 1917 the Minister of Foreign Affairs of England institutionalized this issue in Balfour Declaration.

The criminal and terrorist groups of Zionist Regime created problems and insecurity for different regions of Palestine. Then there was a plan for distribution of Palestine to two parts of Jewish and Arabs, which led to further problems and disorder. Then there was Palestine catastrophe. The Zionists massacred innocent Palestinian and even Lebanese children, elders and women during terrorist operations. Following all these events, the killings and genocides of border region of Hola took place. During these tragic events ten thousands of Palestinians were forced to take refugee in neighboring countries such as Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. The Palestinian refugees are still living in settlements.

After this tragic event, the Arab-Israel conflicts took place, such as the war of 1956 and 1973 and finally the 6 day war of 1967 which led to losing of West-Bank and Gaza Strip.

After all these wars, there was the trend for reconciliation following Camp-David Pact and Oslo Treaty. Of course during conciliation also there were devastating wars which created very negative consequences, firstly for Lebanon and Palestine and then for neighboring countries such as Syria. The reconciliation trend could not materialize the establishment of just peace in Middle East or establishment of an independent country of Palestine. In addition, all those Arab states which started negotiations with Zionist Regime could not establish a real peace. While on the other hand Israel took the opportunity and attacked to resistance front of Lebanon in 1982. At the same time the army of the Zionist Regime with the aim to destroy Freedom-Movement Organization started to attack Lebanon. Following this war, Lebanon faced a series of devastating wars which led to almost destruction of national unity and political existence of Lebanon and created a boarder line along Litany River from Mediterranean Sea till Bega'a region. Finally The Lebanon resistance could free occupied lands in this border line from the occupation of Israel on 25 April 2000.

It should be pointed out that aggression of Israel against Lebanon never ended. Nobody can forget the crimes of Zionist Regime on 1996 which finally led to what is called as "April Understanding".

In the same year the usurper Zionist committed very horrible crimes against our people in south of Lebanon particularly in Ghana in which more than 10 thousands children, women and innocent people were killed.

So the conciliation trend which was followed by certain Arab states and on the basis of regional and international important political conditions did not brought security and stability for our people, so that in the light of it we could be able to develop and expand our social and political life and also our potentialities. In addition the domination of Zionist Regime and its crimes which are supported by certain countries are continuing for more than four decades and nothing have been changed.

Today it is clear for every one that mongering policies of Zionist Regime which are fully supported by U.S. are not a conciliation policies but the reason for imposing them, were to destroy certain bases of power. For proving this claim we can refer to the crimes of 2006 in Lebanon or its recent crimes in Gaza Strip.

Undoubtedly the victory of resistance group of Lebanon in Jun 2006 or the victory of resistance of Palestinian in Gaza defeated the ominous policies of Zionist Regime. The Zionist Regime along with so called freedom and democrat parties, today should review their policies, otherwise should witness their continuous defeat.

Palestine Issue and our Role:

Memorandum of Understanding between Hezbollah and National Movement of Lebanon which were signed on 2006 by Colonel Michel Aoun and Seyed Hassan Nasrollah was a turning point in political life of Lebanon, to the extent that besides institutionalizing the concept of conciliation and historical participation of the people of Palestine, it prevent the emerge of another conspiracy. The result of this participation and real coexistence among Christians were evident in the war of Jun and the heart of Christians was open to their Muslim brothers.

The people of the world have seen how this issue effected on victory of Lebanon after four decades. Especially after visit of Michel Aoun from Iran and Syria and the warm hospitality extended to him during his visit, the new arena in the field of relations based on honesty, started.

In this Memorandum of Understanding there is emphasize on solidarity with Palestinian brothers and on the other hand it emphasize on the legitimate rights of Palestinian refugees for return to their mother land. During the speech delivered by Michel Aoun in the University of Syria in 2008 and before Gaza war, he referred to this point that “without justice there will be no peace”. Justice can be materialized only by respecting the rights of people; otherwise any other solutions will be vain. At the end of his speech he mentioned:" if the issue of Palestine does not solve immediately and if U.N. does not fulfill its duties vis-à-vis Palestine, then the end of this issue will bring further tragic events rather than its beginning, and this is absolute.

We declared many times our solidarity with our brothers in Gaza and we have emphasized that resistance will not face defeat.

Palestine in Christian Conscious

The positions of freedom movement for making solidarity and unity with resistance group and Lebanon events of 1975 and 1976 were as a result of the trend adopted by Lebanon Christian Society. Christians were pioneer in defending Palestine. Al-Qods include Al-Aqsa , Qobatol Sakhra , and Al-Mahd church the emergence of glad tidings , the day which the earth and sky joint together so that Jesus Christ  scarify himself for humanity.

All the Christians living in Al-Qods have long history in their freedom struggles in which we can refer to "Matran Gerighorious Hajar" in 1901, who had been martyred in Al-Qods and "Matran Ata'allah Hana" and "Kapoochi" and other Christian Leaders, and intellectuals. Also along with the brilliant activities of Arab intellectuals in defending Palestine we can refer to Lebanese intellectuals and scholars such as " Michel Shei'a", "Khouri YovakimMobarak" and his defense from Al-Qods, "Sharl Malek" and his forecast in 1949, "Kamal Alhaj" and his war against Zionist in 1967 and other politicians and religious scholars of Lebanon.

Today more than any other time the issue of solidarity with Palestine issue is needed since everybody knows that the regional and international communities think only of their own interests.

Palestine, the Issue of Suppression of Human Rights

The issue of Palestine which is the issue of Christianity and Islam is also the issue of legitimate rights which are being suppressed. So for solving this issue we should consider first of all the legitimate rights of the people of Palestine. We believe that U.N does not fulfill its duties and responsibilities vis-à-vis this issue including implementation of international laws and resolutions such as resolutions No. 194 and 242. So this indicates that international community follows dual policy vis-à-vis Palestine issue.

We Should All Defend Palestine Issue

With regard to what have been said and also considering the changes and developments in international policy particularly after defeat of former administration of America (U.S) which did not do anything except creating war and economic sanction, we would like to raise some suggestions in this regard:

The recent war of Gaza should be considered as real victory like victory of Jun, and there should be an emphasize on this point that if Israel continue its aggression it will face defeat.

The resistance is just and only through resistance we can create just solution for Palestine issue.

The peace based on justice can only be materializing by creating independent country and when the displaced Palestinians return to their motherland.

Al – Qods should be introducing as the issue of humanity.

Making efforts for creation of an international policy based on humanitarian rights.*

Message of

National Parliament of Nicaragua

 

With regard to article 3 of the constitution of Nicaragua that: “struggle for achieving international peace and stability is undeniable duty and obligation of the people of Nicaragua" and article 5 of this constitution stipulated that: "Nicaragua create its relations with other countries based on friendship and coordination among nations and reciprocal reactions of states." Thus Nicaragua considers any political, military, economic, cultural and religious invasions and foreign intervention in the domestic affairs of other countries, illegal and prohibited and recognizes the principle of solving all international disputes.

With regard to this point that heads of the states of " American Central Union" (SICA) during the 24th session of SICA which was held in Managua on 15 Jan 2009, requested in resolution No.1 for the rapid withdrawal of Israel army and establishment of permanent ceasefire and thus to create peace and at the same time to take care of those who have been injured during the war and to reconstruct the places destroyed during the war. Also this resolution has firmly requested Security Council of United Nations to establish international peace and security and to create stability in the region.

Considering the fact that the UN security council since 1967 had made various efforts to create just and permanent peace in middle East for respecting and recognizing sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of the countries of the region and their rights to live in peace inside recognized and secure boundaries without any threat. Also according resolution No. 1860 dated 8 Jan 2009 requested for permanent "ceasefire" which will lead to complete withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza. Also it condemned all the cruel acts and terrorist activities against people and requested international community to strengthen its efforts for achieving just and broad-based peace based on the ideology of establishing independent state of Palestine.

SICA (Central American union) confirms any agreement achieved on 19 Jan 2009 in order to create temporary ceasefire for granting humanitarian aid to 750 thousands injured Palestinians in Gaza strip and the possibility to establish dialogue for achieving permanent and stable peace in the region.

With regard to this point that we as legislative power and high representatives of the people of Nicaragua we are obliged to respect all the principles of the country including freedom, justice, respect to human dignity, political, social and ethnic freedoms, deferent kinds  of ownership, freedom to have international cooperation and respect to self determinations of the countries, therefore while recognizing the principle of solving international disputes in a peaceful manner and within the framework of regulated mechanisms in the criteria of international laws, express the following issues:

Firstly: the decisions of the two conflicting parties regarding the establishment of temporary ceasefire in Gaza strip on 19 Jan 2009 shall be implemented.

Secondly: the two contracting parties shall be firmly requested reciprocally the creation of circumstances that besides ceasefire to respect the agreement on creating long-term peace in the region.

Thirdly: the conflicting parties shall be requested to respect security, life and welfare of thousands of children, women and men who live in this region and to reach agreements which will lead to the establishment of just peace and stability in the region.

Fourthly: it should be requested from international community to join relief activities of humanitarian organizations such as red-cross, Red Crescent and relief agencies and UN public plans for helping Palestinian refugees in Middle East so that to help people of Palestine and at the same time to reconstruct Gaza.

Fifthly: the SICA requested to be active in the process of dialogue for establishing permanent peace in the Middle East and to create reconciliation. *

 

 

Message of

H.E. Mr Sheikh Mohammad Abusardaneh,

Member of the National Assembly of Palestine and Chairman of the Parliamentary Friendship Committee of Iran and Palestine

In the Name of God, the compassionate, the Merciful

His Excellency seyed Aliakbar Mohtashamipour, Secretary General of the 4th International conference on Supporting Palestine;

Salamo Aleikom va Rahmatoullah va Barakatoh

I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your invitation letter for participating in the 4th Conference on Supporting Palestine due to be held in Tehran on 4-5 March 2009. The conference has been organized to pay respect and celebrate the victory of the entire Palestinian nation in General, and the victory and heroic resistance of the people in Gaza for 22 days against the barbaric attacks of Zionists, that used all types of destructive and prohibited weapons that were provided by the United States to the occupying regime. During these devastating attacks, Palestinians suffered huge human losses and material casualties.

They killed a large number of civilians, including women and children, while few Palestinian combatants, less than 150, were martyred.

All these events demonstrate the victory of Palestinians in Gaza, which reminds us of the victory of our brothers in Lebanon in 2006 under the leadership of our Mujahid brother Seyed Hassan Nassrollah (May God grant him a long life with His endless blessings, and bestow upon him greater dignity. During these wars, the Almighty God hit them back their deceitful tactics, and they failed to accomplish their goals through coercion and violence.

1- I appreciate the invitation extended to me, and Iran's recognition of and its Islamic approach towards the Palestinian issue. The Palestinian people have always been at the frontline of defending the rights of Muslim Ummah.

That is why Masjid al-Aqsa, the first Quibble of Muslims is in Palestine, a sacred place that is like a precious gem at the heart of the Muslim lands, and because of that, jihad groups were formed and mobilized at economic, military, media and cultural fronts …….. (Verses from the Holy Qoran )

2- Since the victory of the Islamic Revolution under the leadership of Imam Khomeini (P.B.U.H), Iran has always played a leading role among Islamic nations for helping and supporting the oppressed Palestinian people.

This is a policy which has been fundamentally on the basis of deeds rather than words. We will never forget the initiative of the late Imam Khomenini in designating the last Friday of Ramaddan as a day to voice our support for Palestinians and for the liberation of al-Qods al-Sharif, and Masjid al-Aqsa.

3- The Zionist movement which has been founded on the basis of racism, forced displacement of Palestinians and expansion of Jewish settlements is considered the No. 1 enemy of Muslims wherever they are.

The dire consequences of this hostility will never vanish, unless through the use of our faith, our resource and strength. This is what that can be evidently seen in the Islamic Republic of Iran. May Allah the Almighty protect Iran against the conspiracies of the enemies.

Once more, I wish to express my thanks to your Excellency for inviting us to this conference.*
