The Iranian Education Ministry was expected to launch on Monday a special seminar aimed at familiarizing middle school Tehran students with Zionism.
Ahmed Sarush Najad, the head of the ministry’s Palestinian History Department, told the Mehr news agency that the seminars will focus on four main topics: Jerusalem and the Islamic world, Hizbullah’s victory and its consequences for the Zionist regime; the Zionist regime’s weak spot and the American lobby.
“The seminars will expand the students’ knowledge on the acts of the Zionist regime and its malicious intentions,” Najad was quoted by Mehr as saying.
All male and female students enrolled in Tehran’s middle schools will participate in the seminar over the course of the next 28 days to
mark Jerusalem Day, which is celebrated each year during Ramadan.
During Jerusalem Day, which is celebrated on the last Friday of Ramadan, marches are expected to be held in Iran and throughout the Muslim world as a sign of sympathy with the Palestinians. This year most contributions collected during this day are expected to go to the rehabilitation of southern Lebanon.
