More on the Qods Day protests:

The Late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, had declared the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan to be “the International Qods Day”, intended to be a day to call for the liberation of Qods (Jerusalem) from Israeli occupation.

After Mecca in Saudi Arabia, Jerusalem, or Qods in Arabic, is the holiest place for Muslims.

Hundreds of thousands attended the International Qods Day rallies in Tehran.

Ahmadinejad and ex-president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani held speeches after the demonstration at the Friday prayer ceremony at Tehran University.

Iran does not recognize Israel and insists on a referendum to clarify the geographic and political status of the “occupied territories of Palestine” in which also millions of Palestinian refugees should be allowed to vote.
