RNA – Today, one of the most important issues in the Islamic world and in the international arena is the issue of Holy Quds and Palestine.
In this regard, the correspondent of Rasa News Agency’s political service had a detailed conversation with Ayatollah Abbas Ka’bi, a member of the board of the Assembly of Experts of the Leadership, part of which has been translated for our international readers:
Rasa: What is the place of the discussion of resistance and the struggle against Israel in the jurisprudence of resistance?
Ayatollah Ka’bi: Palestine and al-Quds (Jerusalem) is an Islamic land that was taken from the Palestinians as a result of British colonial planning and the Jewish Agency for Israel’s program, and the fake nation of the Zionist regime was established in Palestine with a ruling body and the Zionist regime.
The land, the people, the government and the sovereignty were all usurped as if they were attacking someone’s house and occupying the house and evicting the landlord, then settling in that house with all the supplies. The situation of the Zionist regime is as if a landlord complains about his tenants and the usurpers order negotiations and the usurper stays in the house.
Their work is usurpation, forgery, theft, murder, looting and crime. According to Islamic principles, the duty of such a usurping, fake and self-proclaimed regime, which was created by colonial design to usurp the Islamic land and encroach on the sacred, is clear.
Rasa: Does jihad with Israel have a place in Wahhabism?
Ayatollah Ka’bi: Regarding the issue of Daesh and Salafi jihad, in dividing Wahhabism into court Wahhabism, missionary Wahhabism and jihadi Wahhabism or Salafi jihad, Daesh considers themselves to be appointed to the Salafi jihad movement. According to Salafi jihad, the liberation of Palestine and al-Quds and the end of the usurping state of Israel is a religious obligation but the Israelis and the Americans have played them and changed their ways, saying that you can fight the Shi’ahs first and then unite with the West.
In practice, they became mercenaries of the United States and Israel in the region, and to form a security-belief belt, they began to work for the Zionist regime as an alternative jihadi movement. Otherwise, al-Qaedah and the Salafi jihadi movement also consider the destruction of the Zionist regime to be a religious obligation, therefore, if they refer to their jurisprudence, they will have no choice but to decide to liberate Palestine and al-Quds.
Rasa: What are the requirements for the recapture of Palestine and the expulsion of the Zionist regime and the global arrogance from the region?
Ayatollah Ka’bi: Naturally, the attempt to recapture and engage in a defensive jihad against the Zionist regime has requirements, one of the requirements of which is to create a deterrent force for Muslims. Muslims must be strengthened and the Islamic ummah must be rebuilt so that the enemies don’t attack again and occupy any place.
The International al-Quds Day rallies are also a declaration of national resistance and solidarity against the Zionist occupiers and these rallies are obligatory and are a defensive jihad. Today, the resistance axis has been formed in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Bahrain and various parts of the Islamic lands, focusing on the liberation of Palestine and al-Quds.
Even the proposal made by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, as a free referendum in the Occupied Territories is based on the rule of the jurisprudential requirement of qa’idah al-ilzam which states “oblige opponents to what they accept themselves,” which means they project themselves as adhering to democracy.
Rasa: Emphasizing on Ayatollah Khamenei’s proposal on the Palestinian people’s right to vote, what is the current solution to the liberation of al-Quds and Palestine?
Ayatollah Ka’bi: The solution to the liberation of Palestine and the liberation of al-Quds is based on the continuation of the school of Martyr Qasem Soleymani and attention to the leadership of the Islamic ummah and the regeneration of the Islamic ummah and taking inspiration from the culture of Ashura and some Palestinian jihadi movements such as the Islamic Jihad movement founded by Martyr Fathi Shaqaqi.
They believe that Martyr Fathi Shaqaqi, after reading the maqtal, the story of the murder of the Master of the Martyrs, Imam al-Husayn, set out on this path which is the path to liberate Palestine and al-Quds is to follow the school of Ashura.
