In the name of Allah, the merciful and compassionate.
We congratulate all participants in the protest
march against the Zionistâ€™s brutal oppression of our
Palestinian brethren in Palestine. We, the Jews come
together today to feel their pain, to grieve their
grief, and to shout their outcry, the outcry of the
distinguished Palestinian people — the ancient and
genuine inhabitants of "Palestine"!
The Holy Torah, that is the guideline of faithful
Jewry, teaches us means of compassion and mercifulness,
of fairness and peace — obligates us now to
come out to the streets of El-Quds [Jerusalem] to
cry out our grievances against the oppression of our
Muslim brethren, the Palestinian people, for 60 years
incessantly, by the atrocious Zionists, especially
the brutality of demolition of residential houses,
especially the current affair of the Abu-Eisha family
from the village of Beith-Chanina, that between day
and night, many innocent families, old and young,
infants and their mothers, found themselves without
a roof over their head.
Unfortunately, demolition of the houses is not
a separate issue, but is the outcome of the continuous
stranglehold, a long chain of occupation and oppression,
bloodshed and despoliation of the Palestinian people,
the ancient genuine inhabitants of the Holy Land,
by the hands of the atrocious Zionists.
To our grief, unfortunately, we are eye-witnessing
the non-stop vicious cycle of bloodshed in the Middle
East. We all grieve and cry out for the past and fear
very much the future, Allah, have mercy!
Our brethren and friends the "Palestinian People",
the inhabitants of the land, also the millions of
exiled Palestinians abroad, rest assured, we are with
you "fellow-sufferers" — all the way. We, the authentic
Jewry, who follow the footsteps of our common "Patriarch
Abraham", we are in the "same boat", captive under
the infidel Zionist regime. We declare herein that
Zionists are NOT Jews, and they have NO right to rule
over the Holy Land. We pray daily to Almighty, that
He dismantle the Zionist reign in the Holy Land and
for the abolition of the Zionist idea, that is the
absolute opposite of the fundamentals of our own Holy
We believe that the final and just solution to
stop the vicious cycle of bloodshed and to establish
repose and peace for the Muslims and Jews alike, can
be achieved only be returning to "One Palestine" rule
to all inhabitants, that its capital will be "El Quds" like
we coexisted, Jews and Arabs, till the Zionist occupation
— in peace and security for centuries under Muslim
We vigorously urge the leaders of U.S.A. and E.U.
and international human rights organizations, to act
immediately with all means at their disposal, to return
the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, the
ancient inhabitants of Palestine, and endeavor in
dismantlement of the Zionist occupation — without
bloodshed — of the land, from the Jordan River to
the Mediterranean Sea!
We pray to the Creator to bestow peace and brotherhood,
mercy, justice, and fairness upon all human beings,
to worship Him, shoulder to shoulder, Inshallah!!
