Zionists intend to destroy regional civilizations in an effort to build their own foundations on the ruins, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday, after revelations that construction work by the Israeli regime near the Muslims’ holy Al-Aqsa mosque has inflicted damage on the holy site.
“The Zionist regime aims to destroy the regional civilizations to build its foundations on the ruins,” Ahmadinejad reiterated on the sidelines of a forum dubbed as ‘psychological operations and media’ here in Tehran.
He made the remarks in reference to the recent aggression of the Zionist regime against the Palestinian people and Israeli claims that the Al-Aqsa mosque is built in the site of Solomon’s temple. Israel has said that it plans to rebuild the temple again.
Ahmadinejad reminded Iran’s anti-Zionist stances, and stressed that the Iranian people and government would continue support for the Palestinians against the Israeli regime.
“The Iranian people always chant the motto of ‘Death to Israel’,” he said.
Meantime, Moshir al-Mesri, a member of the Palestinian parliament, warned on Sunday that Israelis should wait for the Palestinians crushing response after their adventurism in the mosque, referring to the regime’s construction works near the holy site.
“Any adventurism by the Zionists will receive a crushing response from the resistance (movement),” Mesri told.
“Zionists aggression against the Al-Aqsa mosque is a kind of crime. Now Zionists are seeking to perform their plans on the mosque,” he said, and added, “The Israelis claim that the Al-Aqsa mosque is built in the site of Solomon’s temple and want to rebuild the temple again.”
“Palestinians accompanied by other Muslim and Arab nations are opposed to the destruction of the Al-Aqsa mosque and building of the temple claimed by the Zionists and for this reason they have risen in support of the Al-Aqsa mosque and the holy Qods,” Mesri reiterated.
He also warned that Palestinians will never allow the Zionists to enter the mosque.
Otherwise, they will have to face the dire consequences of their aggressions, the Palestinian lawmaker concluded.
