Fadlallah clarifies that Israel's existence is the issue

This is about as clear as you could want. Fadlallah should be assumed to be speaking for Hezbollah, Iran, and a large segment of the "Muslim street" here:
Lebanese religious leader Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah issued a religious decree prohibiting any effort to normalize relations with Israel.

In his momentous decree Fadlallah emphasized on Palestine's integrity and said, "The entire land of Palestine within its historical borders is one Arab-Islamic country and no one has right to spare on inch of it. This decree is addressed to all Muslims. "

"It is necessary for all Muslims to enliven the Palestinian cause, and look into it from a religious viewpoint." [...]
Another Qods Day has come and gone. While we're visiting IRIB, another headline proclaims, "Qods Day breaks Israeli image of invincibility":
Head of Intifada and Holy Qods Central Office said the Resistance victory over Israel that broke the regime's image of invincibility is one of the blessings of the Qods Day.

In a press conference in Tehran, Ramadan Sharif talked about late Imam Khomeini's ingenuity and the results of his wise decision. The last Friday of Ramadan is named by the Founder of the Islamic Revolution late Imam Khomeini as the Day of Qods.

"The late Imam's wise decision has turned (liberation of) Qods to the major issue of the Muslim world," Ramadan Sharif said.

He added that Imam's action made the way to reveal the Zionists' atrocities and all free thinkers of the worlds become more sensitive towards the Palestinian cause.

"With the warm reception of the Day of Qods by the Muslim world, Israel faced many challenges. Many countries were forced by the people to limit their relation with the Israeli regime," Ramadan Sharif said.
It always has a nice totalitarian ring when some grand fearless leader's idea for a demonstration is accorded such "power."
