Pro-Iran groups under Taliban to celebrate Anti-Semitic ‘Quds Day’ on Friday

Kabul – The pro-Iran groups under Taliban in Afghanistan are gearing up for the anti-Semitic ‘Quds Day’ on the coming Friday, according to local media reports.

Afghanistan Sahar TV tweeted the pictures about the preparations, where the pro-Iran groups can be seen installing the street banners with anti-America and anti-Israel messages, while some of the messages are anti-Semitic.

Quds Day is an annual anti-Semitic day of protest which was first proposed by Ebrahim Yazdi, Iran’s first foreign minister under the Khomeini regime. Later, Khomeini adopted the idea, and on August 7, 1979, he declared the last Friday of every Ramadan to be Quds Day. The day is celebrated worldwide by pro-Iran groups to exhibit solidarity against Israel and in support of militant groups operating in Palestine.

On this day, Iranian Mullah regime leaders give fiery speeches, followed by slogans — “Death to America”, “Death to Israel”, and “Curse be upon Jews”. The same slogans are employed by Iran-backed Houthi militants in Yemen.

Meanwhile, Iran has accredited three Taliban diplomats on Sunday, which makes it the 5th country to accept Taliban diplomats after Russia, Pakistan, Qatar, and Turkmenistan.
