UAE-Israel Compromise Betrayal of Al-Quds Cause, Martyrs
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Secretariat of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution of Iran in a statement on Saturday condemned the notorious Emirati move to normalize relations with Israel, and described it as a betrayal of the cause of al-Quds and those martyred on the path of the liberation of Palestine.

“The shameful agreement between the ruler of Abu Dhabi to normalize its ties with the illegitimate occupying regime of Israel is a clear betrayal of the cause of al-Quds and martyrs of this path and violation of the rights of the oppressed people of Palestine,” the statement said.

Elsewhere, the statement emphasized that the fate of the UAE regime will surely be tied to the fate of the illegitimate Israeli regime and Abu Dhabi will face political, cultural and social isolation in the Islamic world.

“More than seven decades have passed since the occupation of Palestine and formation of a spurious and illegal Israeli regime with the support of Global Arrogance, led by the United States and Britain, and throughout these years much oppression has been inflicted on the innocent people of this country,” the statement added.

“During these years, the usurper and criminal regime of Israel has spared no effort to suppress the Islamic Resistance Movement and the oppressed people of Palestine,” the statement continued.

The statement of the Secretariat of Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution concluded that the recent agreement between the UAE and Israel lacks popular support and hearts of the Emirati Muslim people, like other Muslims in the world, beat with the oppressed people of Palestine, and Emirati users have strongly condemned their rulers’ treacherous action on social media networks.

In relevant remarks on Satuday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani decried the recent normalization deal between the UAE and Israel, describing it as a gift to US President Donald Trump before elections.

“These days we have faced a neighboring country which has approached the enemy of the Islamic world and the region and the murderer of the Palestinian nation in a decision to get close to the Zionist regime,” Rouhani said, addressing a meeting of the national coronavirus campaign headquarters in Tehran on Saturday.

He added that the UAE rulers are wrongly thinking that their security and economy will improve through relations with Israel, noting that the measure is aimed at helping Trump win the November elections.

“(The UAE’s) measure is one hundred percent wrong and condemned,” Rouhani said.

He warned the regional states not to pave the way for Israel to have a foothold in the region.

Trump on Thursday announced a deal brokered by his government between Israel and the UAE which he said would lead to full normalization of ties between the two.

Critics see the deal as the latest attempt by Trump to save his presidential campaign against the Democrat Joe Biden.

In a relevant statement on Friday, the Iranian foreign ministry strongly condemned the UAE's decision to set up diplomatic relations with "the Zionist regime of Israel" and termed it as a strategic act of idiocy by Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv which will undoubtedly result in the further reinvigoration of the axis of resistance in the region.

The statement further stressed that "the oppressed nation of Palestine as well as other freedom-seeking peoples worldwide will never forgive the sin of normalization of the ties with the occupier and bloodthirsty regime of Israel and also the act of those who approve and cooperate with its crimes".

Undoubtedly the innocent bloods shed during the past seven decades of resistance to free the sacred land of Palestine which is Muslims' first Qibla will sooner or later take those that betrayed the Palestinian cause by the throat, it added.

The statement also stressed that the Islamic Republic of Iran considers as dangerous Abu Dhabi's act of normalizing ties with the fabricated, illegitimate and anti-human regime of Israel, and warns the Zionist regime against any kind of meddling in the Persian Gulf region's equations.

The UAE administration and all other governments which approve of this move should be ready to take the responsibility of all the consequences of such a measure, it further said.

The Iranian foreign ministry's statement also noted that the history will definitely demonstrate how this strategic mistake by the Zionist regime and the dagger which stabbed both the Palestinian nation and the Muslim peoples in the back will backfire and further strengthen the resistance axis by enhancing unity and solidarity against the Zionist regime and the backward governments in the region.

The foreign ministry advised those rulers who, from inside their "glass castles", hatch plots against the Palestinians and other regional oppressed nations, including Yemen, to regain consciousness and stop erring in distinguishing between friends and foes.
