Khatami condemns Israel attacks on Gaza Flotilla

Source: Khatami’s Website
Date: May 31, 2010

The president of the International Institute for the Dialogue of Cultures and Civilisations stressed that, “I am in a state of profound shock that human rights organisations and institutions like the International Criminal Court, although they are witness to the tremendous crimes of the usurper regime [the State of Israel], which crimes are the clearest of examples of crimes against humanity, are yet to act against these criminals and put them on trial.”

Proof of Islam and of the Muslims Seyyed Mohammad Khatami, during a meeting with a number of women academics and educators, while congratulating them on the eve of the birth of Holy Fatimah al-Zahra [daughter of the Prophet of Islam and wife of Imam Ali] (peace be upon her), stated that, “first of all I deem it necessary to declare on my own behalf, and on behalf of you, learned women, and on behalf of all the free women and men of Iran, my horror at the shameful calamity which took place international waters close to Gaza.”

He added that, “in addition to the massacre and daily repression of the downtrodden people of Palestine, the Zionist regime has for some time now been striving to show the face of state terrorism through its blockade of heroic Gaza and through the gradual suffocation of this downtrodden people. Now, as a number of well-wishers from various nations were heading unarmed towards Gaza attempting to bring basic aid, this regime met them with cruel and bloody murder.”

The president [of Iran] during the reformist period [1997-2005] made clear that, “I am in a state of profound shock that human rights organisations and institutions like the International Criminal Court, although they are witness to the tremendous crimes of the usurper regime [the State of Israel], which crimes are the clearest of examples of crimes against humanity, are yet to act against these criminals and put them on trial. I am in a still greater state of shock as to why Islamic and Arab countries have not yet emerged from their delusional state of many years to stand alongside the Palestinian people and their ideals. As a result, the criminals both continue in their crimes and humiliate those who are prey to these delusions. I am sure that if these countries were to issue a resolution responding to the demand of their peoples to stand alongside the ideals of Palestine, they would put the aggressor and its supporters in their place.”

He issued a reminder that, “the basic way forward is exactly what I proposed at the Doha meeting of the heads of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, and which was accepted by them: a referendum with the participation of all the inhabitants of Palestine, inclusive of Muslims, Christians, and Jews, and of the mass of Palestinian refugees throughout the world. This is a democratic way forward which will lead to justice being done and also to stability and to a genuine and lasting peace.”

Khatami continued that, “we express our sympathy for all the victims of this great crime and at the same vigorously condemn the behaviour of its perpetrators and their supporters. I am sure that the nations of the world will raise their cry more audibly than ever before against the criminal Israel.”

The vote they stole from you and the rights that they took from you unjustly are a shameful stain that cannot be hidden with whatever colour it is painted over. This is so much the case that after one year, despite all the pressures and intimidation, not only have your rightful demands not been forgotten, but this desire for change has taken deep root in different layers of society, based on an extensive social network.
