From the regime that brought us International Holocaust Cartoon Contest comes the latest international festival of hate: International Hourglass Festival, formed with the purpose of “collecting and introducing “anti-Zionism” productions by Muslims all over the world in order to disclose the “beastly and anti-human” measures of Israel and its supporters.”
And the “hourglass”? That represents a countdown towards Israel’s end within 25 years.
Yep, they are nuts.
The festival’s press conference was held on Tuesday ۤFebruary 27, 2018, in Tehran, during which the main agenda and objectives of the festival were explained by the organizers.
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the Secretary-General of the International Conference on Supporting Palestinian Intifada and an international advisor to Iran’s Parliament Speaker, told the press conference that the “Hourglass Festival” is a symbol of the imminent collapse of the Zionist regime of Israel, as predicted by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
“The Islamic Republic won’t allow the Zionists to play with the security of the sensitive region of Middle East. Iran and its allies in the region, who defeated terrorists, will never allow the Zionists to endanger the region’s security,” he added.
Amir-Abdollahian said that Tehran will not anymore let Tel Aviv repeat such acts of terrorism as the assassination of Iranian scientists.
Bla bla bla. The announcement includes an admission they have been supporting palestinian terrorism
Iran has not spared any effort to support Palestine and reinforce Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Palestinian resistance groups to help the nation realize their goal, he went on to say.
And have been fighting us near our borders (Lebanon, Syria)
He emphasized that fighting Israel is part of Iran’s national security because if the country fails to overcome the Zionists near their borders, it will have to fight against them in Tehran where they are assassination Iranian scientists and citizens.
As for how they know we will be destroyed within 25 years, that is a huge secret
He said he cannot publicize the Islamic Republic’s plan to realize the Leader’s prediction that the Israeli regime will collapse within 25 years, but it will definitely happen.
But you do not have to be a (nuclear) rocket scientist to work out what they are getting at.
Also, after pretty much admitting they are fighting us from Syria, it is Israel who is trying to keep Syria and the region unstable!
The Iranian diplomat further noted that in the post-ISIS era, the Israeli regime, along with its Saudi and American allies, is trying to realize its “inauspicious” goals in the region, adding that Israel seeks to keep Syria and the region unstable.
They also invoke Mahmoud Abbas to reject peace negotiations
Amir-Abdollahian further rejected any negotiation between Israelis and Palestinians, saying that over the years of its illegitimate existence, Tel Aviv has proved it does not remain committed to its pledges.
Even Abu Mazen admits that negotiation with Israel is futile, he added.
I thought ‘resistance’ was futile, but apparently not – in fact, resistance is “the only way”!
Efforts by certain Arab countries, especially Saudi Arabia, to normalize ties with Israel have emboldened Israel, Amir-Abdollahian added, stressing that those who believed Israel-Palestine conflict could be resolved peacefully are now sure the only way is resistance.
As for Donald Trump’s recent recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, it is very much a matter of the (hour)glass being half full.
He also referred to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of the Zionist regime, and described it as a great help for the Palestinians as it united the Muslim world against Israel.
And buried within the rambling information about this hate-fest, is this
The organizers will work with 2,400 anti-Israel NGOs in Europe, North America, Latin America, and Eastern Asia to promote the festival across the world, Qomi said.
According to NGO Monitor, there are approximately 250 anti-Israel NGOs. So either the Iranians are really optimistic, or just full of shiite.
Meanwhile, here is the festival’s website. Many of the pages look like this:
Here’s hoping their nuclear program works this well.
