Crescent International

While the puppet Arab regimes are conspiring with the zionists and imperialists to undermine the resistance in Gaza, Iran has pledged total support. In an emotional letter, General Qasem Soleimani, Commander of Iran's Quds Force has said that the Islamic Republic will never allow the disarming of the resistance or abandon the Palestinians to their fate.

Even as Arabian regimes and their western masters plot to undermine the resistance against Zionist aggression in Gaza, powerful voices in the Islamic Republic of Iran have vowed full support.

In a message on Eid day (July 29), the Rahbar Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei called upon the Muslim world to set aside their differences and extend all help to the Palestinians, including weapons to defend themselves. He also called for arming the resistance in the West Bank.

A new, emotional message has emerged from Qasem Soleimani, Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force, pledging total support for Palestinian resistance confronting Zionist crimes in Gaza.

The message in the form of a letter, first picked up by the Lebanese TV station Al Mayadeen has since gone viral.

“Palestine is a beating heart whose blood runs through the veins of mankind to present a new humanity at any time,” he wrote. “Palestine gifts welfare to the world… It shakes the conscience and wakes nations from their deep sleep.

“Palestine in this period of time is between right and wrong, injustice and justice, the oppressor and the oppressed.”

The Quds Force commander praised Palestinian “commanders who would not compromise and submit to pressure and not retreat against the conspiracies of submission.”

He specifically praised the Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, the Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, the Nasser Salah al-Deen Brigades, the Abu Ali Mustapha Brigades, “the political leaders of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and all the resistance groups.”

“The painful scenes of Palestine break our heart and cover our chests with grief, a grief that in its essence has a deep wrath, a wrath that at the appropriate time will be poured on the heads of the criminal Zionists,” he wrote in his letter.

“God damn the one who has wronged you and continues to do so.

“God damn any oppressor who defended and defends this criminal regime. They defended and do defend them, especially the leader of this global tyranny, America.”

In a pointed reference to the military regime in Egypt that has slammed shut the Rafah Crossing, the only non-Israeli controlled border, General Soleimani wrote: “God damn anyone who closes the doors of relief to you and who is a partner to the Zionists in their crimes.”

Islamic Iran has sent relief aid to Gaza but the Egyptian regime refuses to allow it to enter through the Rafah Crossing.

Referring to recent proposals that Hamas and Islamic Jihad should be disarmed in order for Israel to agree to the lifting of Gaza’s siege, the Quds Commander said: “The whole world should know: Disarming the resistance is wrong. It’s a delusion that will not be realized.

“Before the almighty God, we take an oath with the martyrs that we will remain bound to and not change, just like we are and have been in doing our religious duty in supporting the resistance. We emphasize that we continue to insist on the victory of the resistance … until the ground, the sky and the sea turns into hell for the Zionists. And the murderers and mercenaries should know that not even for one moment will we stop our defense and support of the resistance and our backing of the Palestinian people, and we will have no doubt in this.”
