MNA – Adviser to FM Zarif, Hossein Sheikholeslam, said a structure under the name ‘Quds Force’ needs to be added to Islamic countries’ army through parliaments of these states.
In an interview with Tasnim News Agency, Hossein Sheikholeslam, Adviser to Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, touched upon facts underlying Donald Trump’s decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem al-Quds and, while pointing to determination of the American government to move ahead with the decision, said “Islamic countries need to form the Quds Force to counter Washington’s move.”
Referring to America’s decision to boost Trump’s power, Sheikholeslam highlighted that “the current US president is a source of US treacheries.” The Iranian official later recalled Alvin Toffler’s prediction on candidacy of Donald Trump and Lee Yves Cho for presidential elections in his book ‘Powershift’ which was published in 1990, asserting “a development must be unfolding behind the scenes which makes these predictions possible.”
Hossein Sheikholeslam, who previously served as director general of the Iranian Parliament’s International Affairs bureau, pointed out the reason for relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds explaining “all moves and actions by Trump seem to have been decided on by the American power structure. Yet, given that Trump has sought illegal assistance from a bitter US enemy, Russia, now he relies more heavily on Zionists and has made the recent decision to satisfy the Israeli regime.”
The official stressed the need to confront the decision by the White House adding “selection of Jerusalem as capital of the Zionist regime is a major strategic move while the Islamic world possesses the power to cope with the issue before it is fully realized.”
Adviser to FM Zarif said in light of failure of earlier projects to weaken the Resistance Front, Americans and Zionists created ISIL in recent years to weaken the Resistance, a plot which, thankfully, was thwarted. They later raised the case of referendum on Iraqi Kurdistan which again proved futile, he added. Also with the resignation of Saad Hariri, the Zionists sought to transform Lebanon into a scene of conflict though they did not succeed in their attempt.
“Americans have failed in all their attempts to weaken the Resistance Front and are now pursuing the same malicious plot through relocation of US embassy to Jerusalem,” Sheikholeslam underscored.
The official, while referring to the dwindling power of US, said Palestinians are now on the scene and have declared a new Intifada. “The Islamic world also supports them. The compromise line has now come to a halt and America has lost its position as a mediator,” he added.
At the end of his remarks, Hossein Sheikholeslam enumerated certain venues for tackling Donald Trump’s decision urging that a structure called the Quds Force be added to armies of Islamic countries through their respective parliaments; “these forces must be trained and equipped in Islamic countries and it remains imperative that their formation be announced simultaneously in a bid to drive the Zionist regime out of Palestinian territories which only belongs to Muslims.”
