TEHRAN, Apr. 22 (MNA) — Jihad is the only path to the liberation of Palestine, Palestinian MP Um Farhat said during a visit to an exhibition on Palestine in Tehran on Friday.
“Although we have entered the phase of governing, we will not back off one hairsbreadth from our path of jihad and resistance because this is the only way to victory and freedom,” she told the Mehr News Agency.
“We never regret that we have offered up our children for Islam and Palestinian ideals. Rather, we are proud of that because the enemy has entered our territory and destroyed our homes, so we have to resist, and resistance is nothing but jihad,” said Farhat, who is the mother of three martyrs.
“The enemies seek to punish the Palestinians through the use of economic pressure because they have democratically elected Hamas. They want to alienate the Hamas movement from the government and its ideals, but God is with us, and we will never surrender,” she asserted.
The Palestine issue and the liberation of Qods [Jerusalem] belong to all Muslims, she added.
In conclusion, she said, “I am happy about Iran’s recent achievements since the enemies cannot tolerate development in the Islamic world.”
