Very disturbing article in the Iranian press:
Supporters of the Zionist regime will receive their response during the world Qods Day’s rallies, government spokesman, Gholam-Hossein Elham, said Wednesday.
The spokesman made the remarks during his weekly press conference while commenting on the current visit to the occupied Palestine of the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Qods Day is held each year on the last Friday of Muslims fasting month of Ramadan after it was nominated by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, as a day to voice the protest of the Islamic Ummah against the Zionists.
The day falls on October 12 this year.
“The US loses all opportunities to cooperate with regional and other world states by trying to support a regime (the Zionist regime) which is now at its weakest political and social position,” Elham said.
He warned that Washington’s insistence on its wrong policies and arrogant approaches would have no result “but further political disgrace” for itself.
Referring to the approaching World Qods Day, the spokesman stressed, “Supporters of the Zionist regime will definitely receive the final response for their support on that day.”
I asked a friend, Abe, in Israel what he thought of this news article. This is his response:
"Al Qods" (The Holiest) is the Muslim Arab name for Jerusalem. Qods day (Jerusalem Day) is celebrated every year on the last friday of the holy month of Ramadan, according to the Muslim Calender. This year it will fall on Oct 12th.
The Iranian declaration talks about mass rallies and not about a specific armed attack. The situation in Iran is unstable, with many young people opposed to the theocracy, and inciting people to rally against the Great Satan (America) and the Junior Satan (Israel), would take the people's attention away from their anti-government feelings and unite them against the Double-Satan's.
Al Qods Day is a "Solidarity Day" to ostensibly show the world that the Muslim "Uma" (nation) stands in solidarity with the poor Palestinians, victimized by the cruel, inhuman Zionists.
In actual fact, it's used to keep the people incited and angry, uniting them against a "cruel" regime, so that the "lesser" problem of bad government is pushed back in the people's minds.
This technique is common and has been used for centuries to distract the people's minds from what is happening at home. It is used freely in the ME, and is a large part of the ME problem. It takes their attention away from the bad schools, terrorist organizations running their lives, poverty, corruption and more.
While Iran (with it's lovable proxy, Hezbollah) is "dying" to attack the "Zionist Entity", I doubt that the declaration means anything of the sort. I believe that it pertains to mass rallies.
If I am wrong, I trust Israeli Intelligence to prepare the IDF in due time.
All the best,
