The Ayatollah Khomeini inaugurated an Arab “Jerusalem Day” on which Middle Eastern Muslims show their support for the Palestinians. Middle East Online reports on today’s festivities in Iran:
“Hundreds of thousands of Iranians protested against Israel here on the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, marking Jerusalem Day….The demonstrators, including families, ferried in to central Tehran by thousands of buses and private cars, chanted slogans against Israel, the United States and its ally Britain.”
Former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, still influential in Iran, said:
“Israel has no future. Those who are counting on a tumour are wrong. The Islamic world must help so we are able to solve the question of Palestine.
“We are not those who say the Jews should be thrown into the sea, there are Jews who came to Israel to make homes. That is a fact. But every person living in Palestine must have a vote.”
In which case, of course, Israel would indeed have no future. Iran advocates a “one-state” arrangement in which the Palestinians would take over the current state of Israel as well as the territory now under their control.
