Muslim Brotherhood Statement on Israeli Aggression Against Gaza

Muslim Brotherhood Statement on Israeli Aggression Against Gaza

Repeated Israeli raids on Gaza, killing people and destroying their homes and property are blatant violations of international law that vividly illustrate the lie of alleged Israeli peace.

Israel is still flouting all resolutions, ignoring all international conventions and norms, and killing innocent people – following the only bloody policy it knows.

The killing of dozens of innocent Palestinians is only a link in the chain of oppression and Judaization which Israel seeks to impose on the ground, which will never come to be, God willing.

If Israeli leaders think that Arabs and Muslims are too preoccupied with internal problems and political troubles to care for their most important issue, the cause of Palestine, they are certainly deluded. Palestine is dear to us as the blood that runs in our veins. We would sacrifice all we have before accepting Israeli assaults on its good people and holy, blessed land.

Arab and Muslim leaders and rulers as well as all official diplomatic institutions must do their duty, to champion the cause of their nation and apply all pressure to stop the shedding of Palestinian blood, and put an end to Israeli arrogance.

Meanwhile, all national political forces must consider all ways and procedures to support our Palestinian brothers, such as economic boycott, popular rejection, increasing public awareness of the truth about the Palestinian issue, and supporting the resistance alternative and the right of return of all Palestinian refugees. All international institutions must play the roles they are tasked with, to protect innocent Palestinians.

We are confident that all the noble forces in the Arab and Muslim nations will not abandon their duty to support our Palestinian brothers, and to defend all their legitimate rights.

We call on the whole nation to join the Muslim Brotherhood in announcing their wrath and condemnation of the Israeli attacks, and declaring full support for the Palestinian resistance, in popular protest marches and demonstrations, after Friday prayers, on 16 November 2012.

“God will most certainly aid those who triumph His cause: for, verily, God is most powerful, exalted in Might” (Quran, 22:40)
