Imam Khomeini’s Daughter Warns Betrayers of Palestine against National Fury
TEHRAN (FNA)- Imam Khomeini daughter and Secretary General of the Iranian Society for the Defense of the Palestinian Nation (SDPN), Zahra Mostafavi lashed out at some Islamic countries over establishing ties with Israel, warning them against the fiery sentiments of their nations.

In an open letter to some heads of Islamic countries, who have chosen to compromise with the child-killing Israeli regime, Mostafavi said that the Islamic states should be cautioned for their nations' anger.

Imam Khomeini’s daughter Zahra Mostafavi

The full text of the letter reads as follows:

For some time, the issue of cooperation between the Zionist Regime and some of the Islamic states is underway. Considering its importance and our commitments as an NGO defending the Palestinians I felt obliged to share with you some of the matters of relevance as a sincere advisor.

The cause of Palestine liberation and the Holy Quds as taken up among the Muslim societies is based on these very hurt feelings. For the continued occupation of Palestine and the Holy Quds is a long and continuous insult to the Islamic Ummah and the hostile actions of the regime is a continuous threat to the security and interests of all the countries in the region.

As the late Imam Khomeini stressed this cancerous tumor will not limit itself to Palestine and in a very short time would expand its political opportunities at the regional level. Unfortunately, during the past 72 years, no effective or decisive measure has been taken by the Islamic countries to annul this long threat. The 72 years of Palestinians' displacement is a significant factor that shows how the leaders of the Islamic world have failed to handle the issue of Palestine.

As some leaders of the Muslim world have overlooked the issue of Palestine, their occupation and their sufferings and displacement; and instead, have taken steps to establish diplomatic ties with the occupiers of Palestine, [their move] is in actual contrast to the Islamic teachings and the Holy Quran itself, and a decision against Islamic unity and fraternity.

This is obviously to let down the duty of liberating the Muslim land from the hands of unfaith. As the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has stated, any relations with the Zionist Regime is high treason against the cause of Palestine and the Muslim Ummah.

The Zionist Regime has been established based on the distorted teachings of Judaism. Those that God has called them as the worst enemies of the pious and has clearly commanded man not to form friendship with them, emphasizing that if any Muslim overlooks this command will not only be excluded from the pious but will also be part of them and whoever abandons friendship with the pious and seeks friendship with the enemies will be counted as the oppressors and would never see the mercy and guidance of the Almighty and will be excluded from His mercy.

No doubt, choosing to establish ties with Israel would mean to acknowledge Palestine occupation and to create a pact with the worst enemies of Muslims against the Muslims and this choice has flamed the feelings of the Muslim Ummah leading to oppositions by the Islamic Ummah across the world and further attempts against traitors to the liberation of Palestine and the Holy Quds. Those who have made such a wrong decision will pay a heavy price. They should not forget the fate of Anwar Sadat.

The fate of nations and states, that the Holy Quran has emphasized to be studied, shows that the states will not stand forever but nations would remain and those very nations will punish those states that fall in treason. In this regard, the Muslim nations will take heavy revenge from the states that have chosen to establish ties with the enemies and the archenemy. The Society Defending Palestinians and the international Union of NGOs defending the people of Palestine are in fact the will and voice of Iranians as well as the national and international members that feel obliged and responsible to warn all Arab and Islamic states towards the bitter outcomes of choosing to betray the cause of Palestine and to cooperate with the Zionist enemy. No doubt, this choice will bring about numerous socio-political outcomes, as well as security and economic problems, for your state and nation.

One of the policies of the Zionist regime is its military and security presence in the entire West Asia and North Africa, especially in the strategic Persian Gulf region.

When Israel's former prime minister, the butcher of Sabra and Shatila Ariel Sharon, stressed 'the need of Israeli military forces' presence in the Persian Gulf and control over the oil resources in the region' there is no doubt that the ultimate goal of Israel within its deceitful discourse of peace is in fact to expand its dominance over the entire Islamic geography which would lead to endangering the interests and security of all the countries in the region and no doubt the smaller countries will be the most vulnerable.

We warn all Arabic and Islamic states about this wrongdoing.

No doubt, had the Arab and the Islamic states remained beside the Palestinian nation, as the Islamic Iran has stood beside the Palestinian cause for the past 42 years and has taken up this measure as part of its priority in its foreign policies and has continued this trend with steadfastness and strong will during the past 42 years, the Palestinian liberation would have taken a faster pace and would have led to an end to all the insecurity within the nations, as well as the entire region, through close cooperation.

Be assured that the oppressors will think the least about the interests and security of the regional countries when it comes to their presence in the region. Israel is the result of their long colonial experience and their intention is to take full dominance over the region through Zionism and as the US president put it to milk the wealth of region and to behead them in the end.

US President Donald Trump tweeted the news of the Israel-Bahrain normalization deal on Friday after he spoke by phone to Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Following the announcement at the White House, Palestinian officials condemned the Israel-Bahrain normalization deal announced by US President Donald Trump as another "stab in the back" by an Arab state.

Friday's accord normalizing diplomatic ties between Israel and Bahrain comes one month after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) agreed to normalize ties with Israel under a US-brokered deal.

In relevant remarks on Saturday, Secretariat of Iranian Parliament’s International Conference on Supporting Palestinian Intifada strongly denounced the Bahraini government’s move to normalize ties with Israel, stressing that the move will have no effect on the resistance of the Muslim nations.

“Accepting the humiliation of compromise [with Israel] by the UAE and Bahraini governments will never undermine the determination and resistance of nations in the Islamic world,” the Secretariat said in a statement on Saturday.

“Hereby, Permanent Secretariat of International Conference on Supporting Palestinian Intifada of the Parliament strongly condemns the surrender of Bahraini regime to the Zionists and Global Arrogance and its compromise with criminal and child-killing Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu,” the statement noted, adding that the act contradicts with the teachings of Islam and legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

“No doubt, the Palestinian nation will give a decisive response to this betrayal of the mercenary rulers,” the statement read.

“The occupied Palestinian territories and [Holy city of] al-Quds will be liberated by the Palestinians,” the statement reiterated.

“These rulers should know that allowing the Zionist regime to step in the Persian Gulf region will not be a simple and temporary issue. Not only this irrational act will not spread peace and security, it will rather escalate insecurity and instability in the region which will engulf compromisers,” the statement added.
