The Iranian Foreign Ministry says Palestinian people, Muslim countries and “freedom-seeking nations” will eventually “eradicate” the racism propagated by the Israeli regime in the occupied Palestinian territories as the “era of racial discrimination and apartheid” has come to an end.
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi made the remarks in a statement on Friday night, a day after Israeli parliament (Knesset) adopted a controversial bill that declares the occupying entity “the nation-state of the Jewish people.”
The law prioritizes “Jewish” values over democratic ones in the occupied territories, declares Jerusalem al-Quds the “capital” of Israel, allows Jewish-only communities, sets Hebrew as the official language of Israel and relegates Arabic from an official language to one with “special status.”
“The illegitimate and racist Zionist regime has been established on the foundation of the occupation of Palestinian territories and the massacre of their true owners, and Israel’s parliament recent act is yet another attestation of the racist nature of this regime over the past 70 years,” Qassemi added.
The Iranian official further said Washington’s support for the Tel Aviv regime, especially the US administration’s move to relocate the country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds (Jerusalem), and attempts made by some Arab countries to normalize ties with the Zionist entity, have emboldened the regime to continue with its Judaization of the Palestinian territories.
Qassemi also stressed that Israeli actions in the occupied territories would “undoubtedly lead to further instability in the region.”
