(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Deputy Foreign Minister of Hamas Government in the Palestinian territories Ghazi Hamad in a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir Abdollahian underlined that the Zionist regime is seriously worried about the prospects and spread of Islamic Awakening in the world.
The Israeli regime is extremely concerned about the prospect of the wave of Islamic Awakening movements sweeping the Middle East and North Africa and closely watches regional developments, Hamad said in Tehran on Sunday.
The senior Palestinian official also referred to major concerns in Tel Aviv over the ongoing Islamic Awakening in the region, and added that such fears have prompted the Israeli regime to dispatch its agents to regional countries in efforts to fan the flames of ethnic discord while enticing the international community to suppress popular uprisings in Muslim lands.
Since the start of 2011, the region has witnessed a growing wave of popular protests resulted from the people's growing awareness and vigilance.
Tunisia saw the overthrow of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in a popular revolution in January, which was soon followed by a revolution which toppled Hosni Mubarak in Egypt in February.
Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Libya have since been the scene of protests against their totalitarian rulers, who have resorted to brutal crackdown on demonstrations to silence their critics.
While Libya celebrated the victory of its revolution after the death of the country's dictator, Muammar Qaddafi, in October, uprisings continue in several other Muslim states.
