Dear brothers, sisters and faithful youth

More than seven decades ago, when the illegal Zionist regime was founded, great attempts were made to achieve its goals that were represented by aspirations and dreams about a wide Zionist authority extending from the Nile to the Euphrates River to include all fertile Crescent and cultural centers in our region that stretches from the shores of the Mediterranean sea to the coasts of Indian Ocean to control the fate of our countries and our nations so that they have the upper hand in managing the heart of civilization in the world and therefore, besides working on geographical expansion, they tried to establish a military force of a Zionist army so that it would be the greatest and strongest armies of the region to make possible for these criminals to establish corruption on earth to achieve supremacy and arrogance.

But, thanks to God, from the beginning of the {Zionist} occupation, the efforts of the Islamic world began as we witnessed the fatwas of jihad in order to take back the occupied homeland and Islamic sanctities in Palestine issued by the scholars of the Islamic Ummah such as H.E, Ayatollah Burujerdi and Ayatollah Sayed Mohsen Al-Hakim may God’s mercy be upon them, as The highest Shiite religious authorities then the speech of Imam Khomeini, fifteen years before the victory of the Islamic Revolution in the Al-Faidiyya School in the holy city of Qom. After the victory of the Islamic revolution, this discourse adopted by H.E the Muslims ’command Imam Khamenei May God protect him and beside this resistive approach, dozens of Iranian scientists released statements, and from the scientific point of view, more than 2000 university theses have been written on the level of M.A and Ph.D. and hundreds of books and articles published in religious, political, cultural and international magazines to defense of the rights of the Palestinians as we do not forget The Fatwas of dozens of scholars of the Sunni brothers, such as H.E of Sheikh Mahmoud Al-Shennawi and Sheikh Hassan Ma’moun may God’s mercy be upon them, as sheikhs of the honorable Al-Azhar and in response to their call, thousands of resistance fighters armed and struggled against this occupier regime thus after years because of this sacrifices the illegal Zionist regime did not achieve any of its illegal goals, except, he got a big history of crimes that whitewashed the faces of tyrants like Hitler, and today it is obvious that it withdraws from its dreams that were extended from the Nile to the Euphrates in order to try to cling to every cannabis in order to preserve its illegal regime on the land of beloved Palestine while we are confident, thanks to God, that this matter will not be achieved and Palestine will return to its original nation, and the Al-Quds will be freed from the restrictions of the Zionists and returns to the Islamic Ummah.

We all have witnessed or read this history; Since the illegal establishment of the Zionist regime that used to follow the policy of the scorched land, the massacres against the oppressed Palestinians whose lands were occupied and whose houses were demolished and hundreds of thousands of their families expelled and millions of them exiled from their homeland.

Then this illegal regime expanded its occupation of Islamic lands; attacking Sinai, the West Bank, the Golan, and Sheba’a, until the barbarian invasion that affected Lebanon from its south to the north. And all this crime was happening while the world was watching and did not react which it was clear that it was happening under the dreams of the expansion of the Zionist racism state and with the support of the major powers in the world.

No diplomat did react when the Zionists burned and demolished homes, killed innocent people, and did not have mercy on children, nor olds, neither females, and the human rights organizations were silent. The disaster and the great calamity were when some Arab organizations and states were after normalizing relations with Zionists. And this normalizer approach is still continuing today, but its features have become different, as we have seen statements by some politicians in Arab countries who say that the Zionists should have their own homeland in our region, some others have invited them to political and economic conferences and today some of these statements have been reflected by some Arab regimes and TV channels by directing drama series about Zionists in our country that are fraught with falsehood and falsification of our history while we did not see these TV series about the people of Palestine and their suffering.

يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّـهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَاللَّـهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ

They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light though the faithless should be averse

But ... Honorable members of Islamic Ummah;

Until the seventh decade of the last century, although there were great energies of youth of the Islamic world carrying the culture of jihad and resistance, but the lack of the necessary support did not give them a suitable field to enter the arenas of resistance and victory, but when the year 1979 came, a fundamental change occurred in the region, changed it from an area under Zionism influence to an area facing it.

While the Zionists were wreaking havoc in our region, killing innocent people and defeating the armies in a few days, the divine victory led by Imam Khomeini in 1979 brought down the Shah’s regime in Iran, and here the situation changed so the embassy of the Zionist regime in Tehran was closed and delivered to Palestine, the International Day of Quds was declared to perpetuate Palestine in the memory of the nations and increase the resistance against the Zionists as a duty of all the free people of the world, and Iran's intelligence, political, economic, and military strength became a great friend and the largest supporter to Palestinian resistance.

And here was a new starting point in the history of the resistance against the Zionists, so the equations changed and Palestine became the symbol of the Islamic resistance, so the Islamic Republic supported Hezbollah in Lebanon and the resistance movements in Palestine, equipped them with weapons and equipment, especially missiles and rockets, and then the time of failure gone and The time of the victories came to transform the Zionist army tanks that they claimed was not defeated to the carriers of the corpses of the aggressors. The rockets started to rain the enemy's colonies, then the Zionist colonies turned into cities where no one remained but fled, and the Zionist food warehouses turned into shelters, and here the resistance made the first victory that the Islamic Ummah celebrated and restored its dignity. Today, all measures have been transformed, and the Zionist army has become weaker than previously. The army, which was defeating the armies in a week, was defeated in a few days in July 2006 and 2008 by the fire of the resistance rockets that razed its colonies by days and nights.

Today, after all the defeats that the axis of resistance imposed on the Zionist enemy, we see the beginning of a new American-Zionist conspiracy with a political nature by the title of the Deal of the century, when the Zionists were defeated in the military field they are trying to gain the victory in the political field now and unfortunately some of the countries of the axis of abjectness and surrender are trying to overturn the victories of the resistance axis, especially the Palestinian resistance.

This conspiracy did not come from a vacuum, but it came from the U.S arrogance, which ignored all international declarations and the statements of the United Nations and the Security Council to recognize the occupation of the West Bank and the annexation of parts thereof as well as the Golan by Zionists and here we saw the weak and shameful movement of the rulers and Arab and International organizations even the United Nations, which although it witnessed the violation of its resolutions, did not react, rather some expressions that did not go beyond surface statements, this silence is what gave the courage to the Zionists to continue attacks in the neighboring areas and until now the targets were bombed inside the Syrian territories and today some Arab countries have become to declare its intentions to build and open Zionist embassies in their territories which reflects the perfect prostration and normalization. But Zionists must know that this situation will not continue and soon will come the day in which them Islamic fist sooner or later hit them.

The U.S and Zionists considered the axis of resistance, under the command of Major General Hajj Qasem Suleimani, as the strongest charismatic and military character, the threat to the existence of them, therefore they thought that they could weaken or dismantle this axis by assassinating this great commander.

So these criminals carried out the cowardly assassination of this great commander and his companions in Baghdad that led to his martyrdom with Hajj Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes and some of their companions, but this time also their calculations were wrong.

In spite of the greatness of our sorrow for losing the martyrdom Suleimani and his companions, but now we have started witnessing that the martyr Qasem Suleimani has a greater influence on the spirit of the resistance than Hajj Qasem Suleimani was and the school of the martyr Qasem Suleimani has become much broader than the Quds force which was led by him in his resistance against the Zionists and the U.S and their expeditionary tools in the region.

It is very clear today, that after the martyrdom of these great commander, we are at a historical turning point, its features promise the victory as the winds of victory began to blow. One of the signs of this victory was the fear of the U.S forces and leaders when the Revolutionary Guard missiles destroyed their bases in the Ein Al-asad and it was ridicules that the President of U.S, Trump, who considered his army as the most powerful army in the world, began to lie in order to hide the facts and conceal the number of injuries, except that after a short time his fraud and lies became clear to public opinion, and this was the best witness of the strength of the axis of resistance and this strength will increase, thanks to God, by the blessing of the blood of martyr leaders until the final victory

Not many days passed since the martyrdom of Hajj Qasem Suleimani, when a storm of Corona pandemic started blowing in the world, revealed the falsehood of the alleged power of the West and the U.S. The countries that considered themselves the pioneer of the world civilization returned to steal medical equipment from each other. This was witnessed by the public and the forces that were proud of their cohesion refused to provide health and medical services and equipment to their allies provided that they needed these equipment more.

Today, after months of the wave of this pandemic, these countries have turned into the largest corona foci in the world, millions have been get sick, and thousands of people have died, people in those countries attacked and looted the malls, and the doctors left the old-age patients to die. And in a moral fall, the scenes of racism and discrimination even in the medical and health services, where today the world is witnessing racial discrimination between whites and blacks in those countries and today we are witnessing in the West demonstrations against unemployment and this is the evidence of the failure of their Intellectual schools and civilized orientation.

While states should take advantage of the national energies, especially youth, to help fight this pandemic, as the Islamic Republic of Iran did; In spite of the unjust resolutions against Iran, people’s support and the participation of youth, students of religious schools, clergies who through their work in providing services and assistance to health and medical cadres have demonstrated the false duality between religion and science and through the initiative to provide assistance to poor families from popular institutions and believers, they have provided a successful human experience to fight the Corona Virus, where everyone can benefit from it. The Islamic seminaries played a great and at the same time humbled role to fulfill the Islamic and human duty towards the patients and their families, which emanated from the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the noble Prophet’s tradition.

Since the victory of the Islamic revolution and the establishment of the Islamic Republic in Iran, a leadership, government, and people calling for the defense of the rights of the Palestinian nation, and this call was derived from the principles, beliefs and Islamic jurisprudence that declares fight and confronting the oppressors, and this is what the Iranian Constitution declared and we stress that these solutions based on reality and guaranteed by logic and teachings of religion and international principles as well as the dignity of free people.

First solution: which was presented by the Islamic Republic of Iran in a civilized initiative by, Imam Sayed Ali Khamenei, guarantees the rights of all original Palestinian nation of all faiths and sects. This solution that was presented to the United Nations General Assembly is to conduct a free and comprehensive referendum that contains all the original Palestinians to determine their fate. The principles of the right to determine the fate declared to it according to the United Nation and we are confident that this solution will lead to the formation of a Palestinian state on all Palestinian lands as well as the prosecution of all Zionist criminals.

Second solution: It is the method of jihad and resistance based on the principles of reason and human nature and the basis of legitimate defense against the occupier for all Palestinian, Syrian and Lebanese nations, with the support of all Muslim countries and the Islamic Ummah. This solution is also guaranteed by all international laws and the United Nations as well as it is natural for the people of every country to resist against those who occupy their land and their sanctities. From this standpoint, all Islamic countries must bear the responsibility to provide all kinds of support to the Palestinians in their struggle against the occupying Zionist enemies.

We also consider it necessary for Islamic nations and states to demand international organizations:

To consider the issue of Palestine and the resistance as an Arab, Islamic and human issue and to deal with it as central issues in their plans, actions and political, economic and cultural relations
To unify themselves and put all kinds of differences aside from sectarian to nationalism in the course of the struggle against Israel.
To agree on a common declaration regarding Palestine, and comprehensive action plans.
To demand the United Nations to recognize the resistance and the axis of the resistance and to recognize the right of a referendum for the Palestinian nation in order to determine their fate.
The official announcement of Al-Quds Day as a global day in all countries of the world, especially the Islamic world.
 Rejecting the Deal of the century and trying to fail it.
 Breaking all economic, commercial and cultural relations with the Zionist and banning its products.
Breaking political ties, closing Israeli embassies in all countries, and focusing on combating Israel through international relations.
Providing financial and economic support for the resistance in Palestine, Lebanon, and Syria against the Zionists.
Providing political support to Palestine and confronting Israel by working in international organizations and launching initiatives in the United Nations General Assembly and the United Nations Security Council.
Cut off all hidden and announced negotiations with Israel and reject all types of normalizations.
Demanding countries to cut ties and refuse to support Israel.

My dear brothers, sisters and members of the Islamic Ummah

Islamic seminaries in the Islamic Republic of Iran, based on its Islamic belief and its adherence to self-confidence, as well as out of its knowledge of the tremendous capabilities that the Islamic Ummah possesses from an economy, trade and oil to its unparalleled financial, human and intellectual wealth and its great references and leadership represented by H.E Imam Khamenei, believed that the solution and the way to get out of the current crisis in the Islamic world is to activate its various capabilities as the path towards the unity of the Islamic Ummah in order to build a New Islamic civilization, and in this regard everyone, especially scholars and clergies, must cooperate and consult in order to introduce civilized, comprehensive and balanced Islam; Islam that integrates the interests of the individual and society, the reason, justice and development, Islam that unites the happiness of the world and the happiness of the Hereafter, the peace and resistance and jihad.

We must call for an inclusive Islam that recognize both idealism and realism, Islam that embraces development and tradition, Islam that combined, knowledge, religion, national interests, human interests, universal and common humanity, and therefore calls upon all members of the Islamic Ummah to work with the following proposals:

First: We call all our brothers and sisters to strive towards building a New Islamic civilization by Islamic unity.

Second: We ask everyone to ignore differences and reject discrimination by the establishment of Islamic dialogue

Third: We wish everyone to reject all types of violence and extremism

Fourth: We demand the establishment of the common market of Islamic economic and commercial

Fifth: We demand the establishment of the common market of Islamic science and technology

Sixth: We demand the establishment of the common market of Islamic cultural and media

Seventh: We ask everyone to revive the common Islamic identity and return to Islamic values

Eighth: We demand everyone deny lack of self-confidence and reject the normalizations and mercenary of the enemies of the Islamic Ummah.

Ninth: We emphasize combating occupation, state terrorism and wars

Finally, once again, we call all our brothers in the Islamic world to express the rejection of all kinds of collusion and normalizations of suspicious deals, from cultural and medias, up to the conspiracies that take advantage of the medical and health experiences of the Zionists, as we stress the need to support the Palestinian national Struggle as what the Islamic Republic of Iran is doing, which today is the spearhead of the Islamic world and the axis of resistance in confronting the conspiracies of the U.S and Zionists arrogance.

Based on its religion, belief, constitution, principles and guidance of its leader, H.E Imam al-Khamenei, on the support of the resistance until the freedom of the last inch of Muslim lands, on top of which is Al-Quds Al-Sharif, Islamic seminaries considers it as an everlasting religious, ideological, moral, civilized duty, that will not be limited by time or place.

Victory comes only from Allah
