Therefore, they urged Pakistan government to play active role in highlighting Palestine issue at all diplomatic forums.
They said Palestine belongs to Palestinians and the entire Islamic world. Hence, those Arab regimes who want to sell out Palestine neither enjoy the authority nor has any legitimacy to do so.
They said that Palestinians and specially their resistance groups have rebuffed the so-called deal of the century; therefore, those seeking to facilitate in imposing this deal on Palestinians would be considered traitors.
The Quds Day rallies speakers said that so-called deal of the century aimed to expand ‘Greater Israel.’ They said that this deal aims to deprive Palestinians of their inalienable rights.
Hence, Palestinians and the Muslims and Arabs across the world have disapproved this deal. They said that resistance bloc has become stronger and nobody could save Israel from Palestinian resistance movements and their supporters.
They emphasized that Pakistan government needs to act upon the Palestine policy of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah who turned down Jewish state on Arab majority Palestine.
That is why Pakistani nation never recognized Israel since Pakistani nation considers it is a fake and illegitimate state. They vowed that Holy Quds, the first qibla of Muslims, would be liberated alongside all occupied parts of Palestine.
They said that International Quds Day rallies in Pakistan and around the world is a message to US President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu that their latest fraud deal of the century stands rejected.

They said Quds Day rallies are nothing but a referendum against the illegitimate state Israel and its patron US.
