Quds Day heralds fall of Israel
Islam Times: The Quds Day "appears to pave the way for the collapse of Israel and its allies, namely the US and Britain," IRNA quoted Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, the deputy head of Iran's Armed Forces Joint Chiefs of Staff, as saying on Thursday.

In August 1979, late founder of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as the Quds Day, calling for international rallies against Israel in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Jazayeri also said that the upcoming direct talks between Tel Aviv and the Palestinian Authority (PA) were bound to fail, Presstv reported.

"Now that the world public opinion has changed over the Israeli atrocities and the popular resistance has gained momentum, the Zionists appear to be waning," he added.

The new round of direct talks between Israel and the PA comes 20 months after Tel Aviv's deadly onslaught killed more than 1,400 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
