See the disconnect between how Muslims understand jihad in the Islamic world and the soothing nonsense Islamic supremacist spokesmen pump out in America: Hamas-linked CAIR's Ahmed Rehab babbles about jihad being paying your taxes and getting up early to take the kids to school, while Larijani knows that it means warfare against the Infidel state of Israel (and, eventually, other Infidel states as well).
"Iran, Lebanon urge continued support for Islamic resistance," from Iran's government-controlled Press TV, November 24:
Following the victory of the Palestinian resistance movement over Israel in the recent war on the Gaza Strip, Iran and Lebanon have urged continued support for the Islamic resistance in Lebanon and Palestine.
“The victory of Gaza highlights the necessity to continue resistance and Jihad against the Zionist regime (Israel). With their patience and perseverance, the people of Gaza showed that the only way to confront the Zionist regime is Jihad and resistance,” Iran’s Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said after a meeting with his Lebanese counterpart Nabih Berri in Beirut on Friday.
He slammed the stance of certain Muslim countries on Palestine, adding, “Political gesture will not resolve the Palestinian people’s problem. The Palestinian people would like Muslim countries to provide them with real help.”
Larijani emphasized that support for such movements in the region is a matter of honor for Iran as they are resisting against Israel’s expansionist nature.
The top Iranian parliamentarian expressed optimism about political developments in the region and said Tehran would stand by Palestine and Lebanon.
Berri, for his part, expressed hope that the Palestinian resistance movement’s victory against Israel would be a turning point for regional countries to support resistance....
