Talking to IRNA on Saturday, Abhimanyu Kohar, who is the founder of a group called Yuva Kranti Organization which advocates new paradigms for Indian youth in political and social arenas said that the Zionist lobby in the United States has grown more powerful.
Noting that earlier governments in the United States too had sought to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, he said now it is Trump who acts courageously to expose the dual American standard to the whole world.
He said that the Zionist regime lobby in the United States has also tried to cancel the nuclear deal with Iran. And all these happen because the Zionist regime fears Hezbollah, Iran, and the Palestinian people.
He added that one of America's objectives in moving its embassy to Jerusalem is to provoke Muslims. The Daesh terrorist group has now been destroyed by the efforts of the Iraqi and Syrian armies and the Iranian aid. But the United States wants to expand extremist Wahhabi ideas in the region thus provokes Muslims to react.
On the consequences of the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem, the Indian political activist stressed that one results of this US decision is the elimination of talks with Palestine. While the US backed Zionist politicians claim they want to negotiate, but such actions will undermine the negotiation process.
“If the United States really is a democratic country, they should respect the sentiments of the Palestinian people. The Palestinian issue is not a religious issue, but a humanistic problem. Human rights in Palestine have been ignored,” he stressed.
He further noted, “People around the world support Palestine in a peaceful manner. But the Zionist regime is using violence against oppressed Palestinians. The people of the world should give the message to the United States that they support the Palestinians and press the United States and Zionist regime to comply with UN resolutions.”
On Indian government and Indian media positions against Palestine, Kohar said, “The Indian government has said that its policy will not be affected by the third country. The Indian foreign minister, Sushma Swaraj in the last Non-Alignment meeting has said that India is concerned about the situation in Palestine.”
However, he noted that in recent years, the Zionist regime-Wahhabi lobby has infiltrated India's media, so many of Indian media would refrain from explicitly voicing support to Palestine. The Indian government should continue to support the Palestinian people.
Kohar concluded, “The Palestinians must attain their rights, and all the countries must support the Palestinian people.”
Ignoring the United Nations Security Council Resolution No. 478 dated 1980, Trump on Wednesday said in a press conference that the fact that Tel Aviv was currently used as the Zionist regime capital was 'illegal' and said, “Time is ripe to recognize Quds as Israel capital.”
He also ordered the US foreign ministry to make necessary preparations to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds.
His decision was met by wide protest on the part of both governments and people of many world countries, even US allies.
