Media Empire Distorting Gaza Tragedy, Iran Warns
Deploring the enemy’s media attempts to falsify the reality of Israeli atrocities and deceive the public opinion about the Gaza crisis, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi reminded Muslim cultural figures of their responsibility to foil that sinister plot amid a cognitive war.

TEHRAN (Iran News) –A group of prominent writers and literary and cultural figures of the Muslim world, who are in Iran to participate in the 35th Tehran International Book Fair, met with Raisi in Tehran on Wednesday.

Expressing satisfaction with the meeting with the Muslim cultural figures, the president said the enemy has resorted to its media empire and the creation of false news, with unreal narratives and distortion of facts, in order to divert the public opinion of nations from Gaza.

He also emphasized the importance of the position and responsibility of the people of literature and culture to counter that hostile conspiracy, adding, “The standing, resistance and faith of the Palestinian nation and the efforts of the resistance front require a correct and artistic narrative that requires the efforts and double efforts of poets, writers and cultural figures of the Islamic world in this cognitive and cultural war.”

Today, the issue of Palestine has become the first and common issue of all Muslim and free nations of the world, Raisi stated, describing such unprecedented unity and cohesion as the basis of the final victory for the Palestinian nation.

“Despite the enemy’s efforts to induce despair among the Islamic Ummah, the standing and resistance of the awakened and free nations against the historical oppression of the oppressed people of Gaza promises the message that the victory of the Palestinian nation and the destruction of the criminal Zionist regime is certain,” the president said, his official website reported.

He also noted that the book fair in Tehran has provided a suitable platform for the exchange of thoughts and ideas among the cultural elites of the Muslim world.

Raisi expressed hope that the presence of prominent Muslim writers and cultural figures in the exhibition would be effective for the cultural promotion of the Islamic Ummah.
