“Today, there is a strong argument in the world public opinion that the Zionist regime [of Israel] has never been and will never be after peace,” Rouhani said in a meeting with Ramadan Abdullah Shalah, the head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, in Tehran on Tuesday.
This logic must be used to prove that there is “no option but Jihad and resistance for Palestinians” to counter the Israeli regime, he added.
He added that big powers have been providing Israel with extensive and all-out military, political and economic support since the formation of this illegitimate regime, stressing the importance of enlightening the public opinion in the United States and Europe about the fact that the Israeli regime cannot be a reliable ally.
The president pointed to the recent achievements by regional nations in the fight against terrorists and expressed confidence that the plot aimed at deflecting the public opinion away from the issue of Palestine would fail.
Abdullah, for his part, said some regional countries seek to create various conflicts in order to distract the public opinion from the Palestinian issue and pave the way for the recognition of Israel.
He added that the Palestinians would not have been able to bring their situation and stances to the attention of the people in the world had it not been for Iran’s support.
Despite all difficulties and pressure, the Palestinian people would enthusiastically continue with their resistance against the Israeli regime, Abdullah stressed.
