After Iranian threats of annihilation on "Al Quds Day": Mideast Freedom Forum calls for a ban of the "Quds Day" in Berlin

Berlin, May 22, 2020

Today the so-called Al Quds Day takes place in Iran. Before Ali Khamenei once again called for the violent annihilation of Israel. The "Supreme Spiritual Leader" of the Islamic Republic of Iran published a poster announcing the "Final Solution of Israel". On Twitter, Khamenei described the Jewish state as a "cancerous tumor" and called for the West Bank to be "armed in the same way as Gaza". For the rulers of the Islamic Republic of Iran
the Al-Quds Day serves as an instrument of global power demonstration and antisemitic mobilization. It should therefore be banned in Germany. The Mideast Freedom Forum published a policy paper on Al Quds Day.
