Muslim Brotherhood Exhorts All Free People of the World to Rise Up in Solidarity with Gaza

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood issued the following statement Sunday afternoon:

With Arab, regional and international complicity, the Zionist enemy committed its latest massacres in Gaza, which claimed the lives of hundreds of unarmed civilians and wounded hundreds more, mostly women and children. This comes only days after a visit by the coup’s intelligence chief to the Zionist enemy – fresh evidence to the murderous coup commander’s subservience to the Zionists.

It is most obvious that Zionist atrocities in Gaza are a reflection of the coup’s own horrendous crimes in Egypt. Absurd acts like closing Rafah crossing and restricting relief efforts for the people of Gaza are part and parcel of the coup regime’s unquestioning support for this brutal aggression, which the Egyptian people will not forgive. All those involved will be held accountable one day soon. All traitors will be held to task.

Saturday witnessed a maneuver, unprecedented in battles anywhere in the world, when Hamas pre-warned the Zionist enemy that it would bombard Tel Aviv one hour later. Then, the whole world witnessed as millions of Zionist entity residents rushed to shelters and Gaza warriors delivered on their promise and their resistance missiles showered Tel Aviv and other occupied Palestine territories, in an operation code-named "Crushed Straw".

The above tactic affirms a number of points and messages:

– The Zionist enemy is nothing but a paper tiger. All publicity about its superiority and the myth of its army is nothing but propaganda meant to scare other states and peoples. The brave Palestinian resistance has revealed the fragility of this enemy. Will the nation and its armies take a clue? Will they tread the right path and provide the heroes of resistance with what they need to achieve ultimate victory?

– The resilience of the people of Gaza and their commitment to resistance to liberate their land is a resounding slap on the face of all traitorous regimes that sold the cause and trampled the honor of the nation. Will those finally come to their senses?

– Since governments, puppet regimes, have their absurd indefensible reasons to withhold urgently needed help, we call on the free Egyptian people and all the Arab and Muslim peoples as well as free nations of the world to rise up to lift the siege on Gaza and halt Zionist aggressions.

To the brave heroes of Gaza, all its men and women, all its youths… Be patient, courageous and resilient.

Give the residents occupying your land of Palestine a taste of your handiwork, so they realize their survival in the land of Palestine is an impossibility. By God, the people throughout this nation will never abandon you. Soon, we will meet, God willing, in the streets and mosques of Jerusalem. "They say: ‘When will that be?’ Say: ‘Sooner than you think’!" (Quran 17:51).  "On that day, the believers will rejoice in God’s victory. He grants victory to whomever He wills. He is the Almighty,

Most Merciful. This is God’s promise! God will not fail in His promise, but most people know not" (Quran 30:4-6).
