In the name of Allah, the Compassionate the Merciful
This year, Quds Day comes at a time when on the one hand the bloodthirsty Zionist enemy is shedding blood of innocent people in Gaza and on the other hand Muslims are chanting "Allah-u Akbar" causing the castles of tyrant rulers in Tunisia, Egypt and now in Libya to collapse and the clock is also ticking for Bahrain, Yemen and Morocco.
The Palestinian aspiration which once used to be an ethnic and then Arabic aspiration has now turned into an Islamic and even global one. Libration of Quds is the demand of all Muslims and the motto of their uprising. It is all owing to the blessed breath of that great man who promised this day a few decades ago and who with his iron and divine will led the Islamic revolution and turned on the light of guidance in the world. By founding the International Quds Day, he made the hearts pound thus injecting blood into the veins of the Palestinian movement not letting this piece of land, that has been torn off from the Islamic world, go into oblivion.
This river is flowing each year shaking the foundation of tyranny and injustice until the day when the sun of global justice rises and fills the universe with justice.
This year also, the faithful Iranian people like all other Muslims of the world will rise up and chant the motto of liberation of Quds. God willing, their firm steps in this path will be reinforced and endorsed by God, the Exalted, and by the special prayer of the Guardian of Time, the Imam of Age – may Allah hasten his reappearance.
