Al-Quds day 2021: Muslims use virtual rallies, social media to protest against Israel
Al Quds day is the last Friday in the holy month of Ramadan launched by late leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ruhollah Al Khomeini to reiterate that the Israeli occupied city of Al-Quds is at the core of the Palestinian cause.
It is a day for every free soul to acknowledge that the only just solution for the perpetual conflict between Arabs and the Zionist regime is the ending of the occupation and the return of Jerusalem Al-Quds to Palestinian sovereignty, as the capital of the State of Palestine.
Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, the rallies have been held worldwide on International Quds Day, which is the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
This year, the International Quds Day falls on Friday, May 7. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, there will be no physical rallies or gatherings in Iran this year.
Instead, Muslims and freedom seekers around the world are using social media and virtual means for keeping the Quds Day alive to show that even at the height of the pandemic, no event can neither dilute attentions to the decades of state terrorism and injustice facing the Palestinian people.
The Leader of Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Imam Ali Khamenei, will also deliver a speech for the occasion on Friday.
A virtual international conference will be held on Wednesday May 5 by the Iranian embassy in Syria to examine the Impact of the International Quds Day on the collapse of the Zionist regime.
Features of the collapse of the Zionist regime will be reviewed based on two aspects of “internal collapse” and “external collapse.” Subjects such as generational, security, political, social, economic and ideological challenges as well as expansion of resistance movement, loss of strategic privileges, change of public opinion and formation of civil movements against the regime will be presented during the conference.
