Iranian President: Quds Day buried hegemon countries' plans
Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug.26 / Trend /
Quds (Jerusalem) Day was set on the initiative of Imam Khomeini, and this day has become the start of changes in the region and around the world, destroying all plans of hegemon countries, the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad said addressing rally participants before Friday prayers, ISNA news agency reported.
"All knows that our region is a source of culture, natural resources and energy. Palestine is the heart of the region, as all followers of monotheism honour this land," Ahmedinejad said.
He also said Quds Day is a day of unity of all peoples standing for freedom and independence.
He said Holocaust is a great lie.
Ahmedinejad has already expressed his confidence that there was no Holocaust - mass killing of the Jews during the World War II.
"Existence of the Zionist regime contradicts independence and interests of the region's countries," Ahmedinejad said.
He underlined that the Zionists pave the way to the Western capital and is a tool of dominance in the region.
After the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran declared the last Friday of Ramadan as Quds Day to demonstrate solidarity with the Palestinian people. Every year since, Muslims all over the world have held rallies on this day to protest Israel's existence.
Rallies of solidarity with the Palestinian people have been held today, the last Friday of Ramadan, in many Iranian towns.
