THIS commemorations began some forty-two years ago as an annual affirmation of the Muslim’s solidarity with people of Palestine in their struggle for the liberation of al-Quds.
To commemorate this day during Ramazan, a month of struggle is symbolic. It was during Ramazan that Muslims fought their first battle – Badr to liberate Makkah from the clutches of idol worshipers (Mushrikeen).
Since Al-Quds day was first proclaimed, Muslims worldwide have observed this day, drawing attention to the violation of Zionist and desecration of Islam’s third holiest Mosque, as well as their continued occupation of Palestine and their repression of the Palestinian people.
The Al-Aqsa Mosque is revered by Muslims as the place from which the Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) ascended to heaven. Al-Quds is the Arabic name of Jerusalem, Islam's third holiest city after Mecca and Medina. Jerusalem is a holy city, a city of three divine faiths.
Every Muslims should be aware of the continuing threat to the city of al-Quds and the mosque itself.
The mosque structure has been weakened by opening tunnels running below in the name of archaeology and science. These tunnels could be used to plant bombs which could destroy the mosque, and which the Zionist state could blame on individual extremist.
Since the Zionist occupation of Palestine, land confiscation, building illegal settlements, religious persecution, and demolition of the Palestinian homes is a daily occurrence both Muslims and Christians have suffered the Zionists’ brutality and persecution.
History will show no mercy to the Arab nations who have betrayed and abandon the Palestinian Statehood in favor of recognizing Zionist Israel and the “Deal of the Century. And there are many Muslim organizations in USA who have dropped Palestinian cause with donations and trips to Israel by Zionist organizations.
These organization do not commemorate the UN Palestinian solidarity day, NAKBA, or Al Quds Day.
I would like to tell the leaders of Arab nations, for over seventy years you have not been able to stand up against Zionist Israel’s. On the contrary you joined the Donald Trump’s “Deal of the Century”. Your only interest is to change anti-imperialisr governments in Iran and Syria.
You might be next too! Look at Saddam Hussain and Ghaddafi.
On Feb. 18, 1979, Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian leader was the first foreign dignitary to visit Tehran after the revolution. He later told reporters “That I felt as if I was landing in Jerusalem…Today, we are witnessing the victory of the Islamic revolution in Iran and tomorrow we shall see the victory in Palestine”.
Jerusalem still endures. It was once described as “the flower of all cities” in a famous song by the Lebanese Diva Fairouz. Listen to the song: Will make you cry! The Flower of The Cities, Fairuz
In the struggle for peace thru justice!
Speak Up! Silent No More!
